This game is COMPLETELY unknown and obscure to American Gen Z kids born in 1995-1999 like you. The casual generation, YOLO generation. When you saw the trailer for the PS4 reboot, I'm sure you were scratching your heads.

Ask an American 16 year old if he/she's used played this game and they'll say "wat dat." Ask them what their favorite old-school games are and they'll say "Sonic Heroes, Bully, Simpsons hit n Run, God of War, Gears of War, modern warfare 2, Kingdom Hearts, Battle for Bikini Bottom, Crash Twinsanity, lego star wars, sonic adventure 2, Halo. those were da bess, swag yolo. 👌👏👌👏👌👏"

You selfie-taking pieces of shit still claim to be a "le 90s kid" despite not remembering the 90s, not knowing what Pete and Pete is, not knowing what Clarissa Explains It All is, never touching an SNES, and growing up with shittastic shows that were the antithesis of the 90s like spongebob, Code lyoko, camp lazlo, squirrel boy, gym Partner, Kids next Door, Jimmy Neutron, iCarly, Drake & Josh, Naked Brothers band, avatar, and that fucking Ned show.

It's not an age thing it's an geographical thing. Most Americans of any age don't know anything about the Amiga or the c64 (or the master system for that matter). In this case it's not a bad thing though coz the shadow of the beast games are awful.

Amiga didn't take off in North America, it's a regional thing not an age thing.

Shadow of the Beast is simply terrible.

Boy, I sure can't imagine why anyone would think /vr/ is shit now.

Yes I didn't know anyone who bought an Amiga. Commodore 64 was more popular by far.

>>2157

I only played the Turbo CD version of the first game. It looked good and I liked the music but the gameplay was bad and it was too short.

The second one received bad reviews across the board so I didn't bother with it.

'89fag here.I myself thought The Adventures of Pete & Pete was shit back in '95 or so. But I did enjoy CEiA if only for Ferguson or whatever that kid's name was. Because I was 5 to 6 when I watched reruns or something of it, I didn't get crushes on a younger Melissa Joan Hart. But I do remember the opening tune though.

Kenan & Kel was the shit for me though back when it aired.

But this post of mine isn't really all /vr/ though, so… I'll just have a sage.

I don't remember Kenan & Kel, but CEiA was one of my favorite Nickelodeon shows. What's funny is that I had the same bedspread design that she did.

I don't remember Pete & Pete much except for the tattoo that the younger Pete had.

Did you watch Salute Your Shorts? That was another funny show that was on at the time.

I know my generation is cancer, I just want to forget about them and play some decent video games. Is that too much to ask for?

So are people who love music/movies/books/television shows from decades/centuries ago posers who shouldn't be acknowledged?

Some people are snobs about being "oldschool" and that's a shame because the best way to keep good games alive is to invite younger generations to try them.

Hah I always end up feeling left out of most of those "only '90s kids will understand" things even though I was born in '91 because my parents were too poor/stubborn to pay for cable back then. My childhood TV memories are mostly of fiddling with rabbit ears and watching static-y reruns of '80s sitcoms. Makes me feel more like an '80s kid than a '90s kid in some ways

Part of that could be a legit backlash to the accelerated trend in recent years to appropriate "retro" stuff by people who only want to utilise it to status signal ("such nerd, much vintage").

Part of it could simply be people being "muh sekrit club" dickwads.

This game (well the very first SotB game) is what made me buy an Amiga 500, back in 1991. The guy had a few other games we played: Xenon II, Menace, Blood Money, and some 2-player tank game that was pretty fun but I can't remember the name.

Anyway the first Beast game had pefectly smooth scrolling with lots of parallax layers, big sprites, and a that beautiful soundtrack with pan pipes. Had never seen or heard anything like it before.

The controls are pretty rough by console standards though. It's up to jump, and just the one fire button to attack. Pretty typical for computer games with joystick back then. If you want something easier, the Sega Genesis game is pretty good, but doesn't quite match the graphics and sound of the original.

Anyway it's a pretty tough game. Made it to the bottom of the castle level without cheating, and no further. It's pretty easy to get ganked in this game. You kind of have to memorize patterns and stuff, like in Ninja Gaiden.

Anyway the game was impressive then, but maybe not as much now for someone who's seen even better stuff on Neo-Geo and such. I still like its weird and unique atmoshphere. Some other good Amiga games to try: Gods, Satan, Leander, Risky Woods, Lionheart, Toki, Prince of Persia, Another World, Flashback.

This is true

Actually it surprises me how much a lot of kids actually like playing old games. I think they can sense that more effort went into them than the similar-ish games they have on their smartphones.
