don't understand how someone can be a retro gamer and be born after 1995. People born in 1996 like to claim they "grew up with" the N64 but they didn't, their first console was probably as PS2.

I'm 26 years old. So I was a teenager not too long ago, but honestly, my generation seemed A LOT more interested in actually play just good games instead of you Gen Z kids born after 1995 who only want to play the "cool" games like COD, Madden, FIFA, LOL, DOTA 2, and GTA 5. Hilarious how the teenagers playing these games are all hipster idiots who need to constantly rub in the fact that they're liberals.

It's weird, but if you look at those "Teens React" videos (particularly the Smash Bros. one), you'll see that the 1996 and up generation just doesn't know anything about classic 90s video games, anime, music, movies, or TV shows.

Heck, they don't even know early 2000s classics. Why is that? Shouldn't a 19-year-old remember shit from 2000-2005?

The PSone (the one with the LCD screen add-on) was released in 2000. The Dreamcast was released in late 1999. Both these systems had games being released well into the early 2000’s. Whether your early millennial faggot ass likes it or not, this meets the retro cutoff. And nothing is stop any late millennial, Gen Zer, or future generation from picking up these games to play and make it a part of their childhood or later years. What in the fuck is this pointless gatekeeping tribalism? Yoomers like you should be encouraging people to play older games from any previous gen so you have a newer generation that cares about curating classics and obscure titles of yesteryear. Why is it that gaming is filled with cynical juvenoia? Is it because you made vidya brands and plastic goodies a part of your identity? You don’t really see this shit in music and film where the older generation is contentious about showing the history of the medium to a younger audience.

TL;DR

Get a life, faget

Back in my day NES was all the rage, but before that I had ZX, had to load games from casettes and I did not know any basic, no manual. Will I recommend NES games for todays kids? _Absolutely_, buy raspberri pi, two joystics, install fav emulator and you will have fun for days.

This entire board… should just be replaced with this… this one… single image. It's the only thing that should be here. Nothing will ever be greater, video games should have just quit after this game, there was no need to try and go further. It is peak perfection.

I've seen this chart posted a few times but it only extends back to 1988. There's also a brief history of PC gaming chart which only goes back to 1990. Why is this? I'm not someone who's very knowledgeable when it comes to older PC games but I've been growing more curious. Is there any way we can compile a new chart to include notable PC games which released prior to 1988? And how far back should we go? I'm not sure if it's really worth going through the 1970s but there were a good chunk of significant PC games in the early to mid 1980s that should be worth sticking on a PC gaming chart. Akalabeth, Zork, the first Ultima, Microsoft Flight Simulator 1.0, Elite, Trinity, Starflight etc.

Because before 1987, most "DOS" machines were IBM Personal Computers(8088), XT's(8088), PCjr's(8088), AT's(286), or at the ass end of the 80's a PS/2 with a 386 on the high end. Even the Total DOS Collection only goes back to 1981, and there was less than 20 titles released that year. Most videogames on computers prior to 1987 were on Amiga, TRS-80, CP/M, or fucking mainframes. Still, there was some good games from 1981-1987 that do get ignored, since most people just focus on the popular titles from the era like the Zork series, Rogue, Ultima series, Kings Quest series, Wizardry series, etc.

I entirely support anyone willing to emulate all DOS releases from 1987 going back and make images like you've posted. A "complete" history of DOS gaming would be awesome. And companion images for complete Amiga and other retro PC gaming would be great too.

These kind of compilation pictures are dumb. Especially one that tries to be as complete as possible, instead of focusing per genre and making sure no inferior ports make the list it just arbitrarily divides by console it was released on. Also one that includes recommended mods is pretty much a must especially when it comes to PC. This picture doesn't tell me what version of Rayman to play and since I can't ctrl+F on it it better has JJ2+ on there.

So /vr/.. home computer general thread. I don't own many HCs but I do have two MSX computers. One's a Sanyo MPC-2, the other's a Sanyo Wavy70 FD. I reside in Arabia and the MSX was really popular here back in the day. I'm a bit of a youngin, so I decided to ask my parents if they owned them as kids. My mom replied affirmatively.

I want to have a chart that covers the origin points for everything vidya related, as well games that defined a genre, such as SFII.

The reason I'm posting this as a work in progress is because I don't have the ability to do all the research myself in any reasonable amount of time.

Allow me to start, and please any and all corrections and criticism is very much requested.

>First game

Space Wars

>First fighting game

Heavyweight boxing (1970s)

>First stealth game

0077 (??)

>First use of isometric

Zaxxon

>Revolutionized fighting genre to what it is today

SFII

>First FPS

Maze Hunter (??)

>First Roguelike

Rogue

>First turn based RPG

Ultima

>First dungeon crawl TB-RPG

Wizardry

>First game with a story

???

>First game with a cut scene

??

>First of every genre

This is a base necessity for this chart

>First [insert graphical improvements ie vector graphics, first color game, first game with actual video/photo(s), etc]

This is also a base necessity

>First x-bit games

First 8bit, 16, etc, this applies to both sound and video

>First game with samples

??

>First Japanese game

??

>First rotary joystick game

Even things such as this should be included.

Wizard's Castle might be older than Rogue. It doesn't have the same kind of maze where monsters follow you around, but it's still a randomized dungeon where you fight monsters and grab treasure while seeking the "Orb of Zot".

On that page he posted the 1979 version called Hobbit, but there were later versions for various computers.

Then there's another different game altogether called DND that was written by Daniel M. Lawrence in 1976, and which eventually became sold commercially as Telengard (but there were various mainframe versions floating around before then). Have a look here for some background:

>Revolutionized fighting genre to what it is today

I'd say that's a very subjective label. First X is one thing, First Fighting Game with Special Moves maybe. Even then I think the first Street Fighter had special moves. I'd recommend avoiding vague or subjective labels altogether, and stick to firsts.

Also, I'm pretty sure Akalabeth did the turn-based RPG before Ultima did. Though technically, didn't any mainframe D&D game do the turn-based RPG thing before that?

I think within the next day or so, I'll design some images for the buttons to make them look better. I am not good at pixel art though. At all. So be warned.

Also, what would be a reasonable size for them? As I said, I am not good with pixel art.

Depends on the purpose and if it requires its own text to understand what clicking it does. For example, something I've been working at uses a set of small 16x16 flags to toggle the displayed cover art and associated label above them; if you ask me, the utility there is inherently known without needing further descriptions within the toggle itself.

Assuming you're using <button> at present, you cannot have an image background as an attribute for that element. You can fake a button instead by wrapping an image in an anchor so as to give it similar functionality calls. You might also consider just looking at what attributes you can set to the toggles' element so as to simply change the colors to fit the existing color scheme.

I like this soundtrack better than most of the stuff I've heard from his brother Tim.

What game did you play as a kid that you couldn't find until years of searching?

Shadowrun scared me as a kid and I only remembered the cover. Took me 20 years but I finally found it

Winter Challenge (1991). I vividly remembered the bobsleigh game but it internet wasn't mainstream back then. Sometimes I'd remember the game but was too busy with some other thing to look it up. And then my googling skills stopped being subpar and I found it. Good times.

I remember some Dungeon Crawler like Might and Magic on the PC, only thing I really remember was that there was a guy with Red hair and a red eye and was some sort of fire sorcerer… When you were choosing characters and got to him, he said: "Does my face frighten you?" it was voiced.

Sounds vaguely like Anvil of Dawn, but I don't remember it having a redhead PC.

I bought this game for like 15 bucks since the store couldn't get rid of their only copy for years after it came out. Definitely one of the most satisfying games to 100%, you need to learn the system to the point of breaking it.

Wow, really? The game turned 21 back in June? I turned 21 just a couple of weeks ago. I played Mischief Makers as a kid back when Project 64 1.6 was the newest version, but I never beat it or ever even got very far. It was still cool though and revisiting it nowadays I can see a totally dreamy and rad atmosphere to it and I really want to beat it. The N64 really was kickass, wasn't it?

I love this game so much. Great music, fun action, lots of charm, and a cute protag. I know Treasure historically hasn't liked to do sequels (despite most of their original work seemingly being nothing but sequels or remakes, as of the last decade or so), but I really wish they'd make one for this, or just

MAKE A NEW FUCKING GAME THAT ISN'T SOME LICENSED TIE-IN OR REMAKE/PORT OF AN OLDER ONE

Has anyone here ever heard of a game called "Freddy: The Fantastic Frog's Frogging Out"? It was developed by a (presumably) German company named The Merging Minds for the Amiga.

There is very little information online about this game and its developers. From what I could gather, Freddy's gameplay is somewhat similar to Frogger, if the German magazine where I found out about it is anything to go by. As for the company itself, they worked with several publishers and are known to have developed three games. Those being the aforememtioned Freddy: The Fantastic Frog's Frogging Out for the Amiga (currently undumped as far as I know), Solius The Sorcerer for the Amiga (dumped for years), and Dan Burry: Jump & Run for MS-DOS (dumped recently). It's possible that they developed more games, but I could not find much more info beyond what I already wrote.

Does anyone here have any more information on this game or the company that developed it?

Here's the magazine in case anyone wants it: https://archive.org/details/Aktueller_Software_Markt_-_Ausgabe_1991.11/page/n158
