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?

I'm over 40 and don't give a fuck if kids don't like games I grew up with. But then again, I don't give a fuck about their shitty new games either. It's a completely honest, two-sided, and fair relationship, where I just don't give a fuck. Caring about this shit is a waste of time and energy. Just play games, and have fun.

About half of my friends from high school completely forgot to cancel their Xbox Live gold accounts until I wanted to play a game with them (not to mention being completely surprised that they had some Halo 3 activity on their account). Being poor must suck, but they could have saved about $600 by doing that shit sooner.

This.

I was born in 1996 and had a Sega Genesis and GameBoy until 2005 when I got a Playstation 1. My first modern console wasn't until 2012 with an Xbox 360. Even then I found the Genesis to be more worthwhile.

I now have a worthy collection of computers, consoles and games spanning from 1982 to the PS3 (never bothered with the new generation of gaming).

Because you're only looking at normalfags.

Lots of kids latch onto long running series like Zelda, Pokemon, Sonic, and Mario. Eventually they go on the internet and realize that there are a dozen more games from the past to check out. They check them out and realize they like these old games that stood the test of time. They get curious and start looking for more, branch out to different franchises, and before you know it they're on /vr/ pretending to be twice their age.

Or maybe they just saw an old game on Jontron XD or one of the other shitty e-celebs and decided to copy him.

And of course there are the poorfags with nothing but an ancient PC and a shit internet connection. They download tons of ROMs because they're some of the best freely available games that are playable on their toasters.

Basically, just because kids were born too late to get the authentic experience of retro games, doesn't mean they can't learn to like them and develop an autistic superiority complex about them.

I was born in 1995. I grew up with the N64 because I received it as a gift at age 6. I remember it was a used system from EB Games with SM64. Later on my grandfather, who also owned an N64 went on the road as a trucker and gave me all his games. I grew up poor so I was always stuck with older consoles and didn't get any "new" used games unless it was a birthday, a holiday, or I lucked out. I had friends who had newer consoles but my exposure to newer games was really limited to the rare occasion my overprotective mother would actually allow me to go in their homes/spend the night, or at demo kiosks in stores. I didn't get an original Xbox until the 360 came out and Xbox games were in bargain bins. I had two games for it, MX Unleashed and Midnight Club 3 and I remember it wasn't until 2 years later when I got Halo 2 so I was still very limited with exposure to newer titles.

There's also the emulator factor. When we first got internet in 2006 it dawned on me that there may be a way to avoid paying for used games by somehow playing them on the computer. A few short google searches and some agonizing shit-tier DSL torrenting later and I was playing N64 and PS1 games with my keyboard.

I eventually sacrificed one of the breakaway cables to my Xbox controllers to make a USB adapter to play the games more comfortably, which to the surprise of 12 year old me, actually worked (they're just standard USB devices). Naturally I started googling around for ways to play SNES, NES, Genesis, etc games on my computer because 6th gen console emulators hadn't even been written yet.

So yes OP, I grew up with the same video games as you did, albeit with emulators and poorfaggotry.

Looks like poorfaggotry is one of the main factors for those who were born in 1995 or after. Same here, I'm a 95-fag too. I've started playing with a Sega Genesis when I was 3, and two years later I've got an NES. Mind that these were Chinese knockoffs, but they worked - that NES is still alive and I'm still playing it occasionally. In 2001 I've started playing on PS1 and 3DO (still alive too), but two years later I had to go for PC, since a chipped PS2 was buttfuck expensive so I had to skip it which I'm still regretting to this day. Discovered emulation at around 2006, since the nextgen was even more expensive.

Also, quite a number of my peers did have the same experience as me, but most of them just don't remember anything anymore.

>>4940

Even for Chinese cartridges in Russia, this post is still true. At least most vidya stores allowed people to try the game before buying it, since one Genesis cartridge was like 1/10 of an average salary.

This right here.

When you're a kid with no money, older consoles a hell of a lot easier to get your hands on than newer ones.

Hand me downs, yard sales, and emulation (usually at least one kid in class would have snuck an NES emulator onto one of the computer lab desktops)

I just like games, same way I like movies or music. It's neat to dig for interesting stuff that might be a little older, plus seeing trends and influences in context can be neat. I don't try to only play, watch, or listen to older stuff, I just dig for stuff that might interest me. Sometimes it ends up being older, sometimes it isn't.

I was born in the year of Doom and my first vidya experience was with a used Megadrive/NES. Grew up mostly with Nintendo handhelds and PC. I got access to PS1/PS2/N64 and Xbox via friends though.

I mostly play older games these days because I've exhausted the 7th gen and the current gen isn't very appealing at the moment. I'll probably get into it at the end of the gen, just like I did for the 7th gen and fill the time until then with older vidya.

Ah, this thread lives again?

I was born in 1978 and my first system was an Atari 2600, but I barely got to play it because my parents were still in their early twenties. I seem to be playing more remakes of old games than anything else.

I was born in 93, but I lived in a somewhat poor family and my mom was kinda anti-video games, so buying brand new game system was just out of the question, but my dad was cool, the first game we played was alex kidd on the master system. Because of that I was always 1 or 2 generations behind, so around the time the n64 was out I was playing with a sms/nes and got a snes in 1999 and a n64 in 2002 I think. When I was between 14 and 16 my dad got me a part time job and instead of saving up to buy a ps3, I preferred to spend my paycheck on retro games, so I got a genesis, a PC engine, a playstation and a saturn. that's why I'm much more nostalgic for 8 and 16-bits games despite being born in the 3D era of gaming.

But I do think most people under 25 saying that they know and like retro games are retro hipster that think they're hot shit because they played undertales or some other indie shit

Here's Adventure (Colossal Cave) on an Osborne 1. That was our family computer in the early 80's. We didn't have this game, but others kinda like it. Some years later I got my own 8-bit computer, and when I became adult and started making money I bought the holiest of grails: an Amiga 500. Unfortunately it wasn't long after that Commodore went out of business and I got brainwashed to upgrade to a PC. But those old computers were a lot of fun while it lasted.

To this day I'll play anything from mainframe games all the way through late-era Amiga games. No interest whatsoever in new-fangled games, but it's no big surprise since I'd also rather read a book than watch TV or movies.

Aren't you in a way implying that these things are not of high enough quality to be considered good without nostalgia? One age range might have a higher quantity of posers, but the passion is more universal than you might think. Your post also overlooks the people who got hand-me-down consoles or couldn't afford the newest thing.

Well I mean you can be a “retro-gamer” at any age. All you need is like what $50 for the console (most of the popular ones top out here) and then like a flashcart or whatever game you want. Hell you don’t even need to do that. Vast majority of things up to 5th gen emulate near perfect.

I didn’t grow up with the NES but I still have a fondness for Contra, Shatterhand, Kirby, Mario and others. I’m 30. I try not to fight “generation” battles.

I don't like how games today seem to want to be a second job. I'm filed under "casual babby" because I don't want my games to be work apparently. I played a couple of games on the original Xbox for the first time recently, and it struck me how the game was 100% game.

Panzer Dragoon, Black, Red Faction 2, Ninja Gaiden Black if your curious.

Some of the game was good some of it was bad but it had a beginning a middle and an end with tight level design and they never seemed to just fuck off and waste your time. I didn't need to grind achievements or send challenges to my friends to unlock whatever the fuck they were just games. And then the game was over. Ninja Gaiden Black being the longest (and hard as fuck), Panzer Dragoon being the shortest but once the game did its job it was over. I don't need 60 hours of filler if your game is done its done just let it be done.

Rambling at this point smoke weed.

Born in '99, so bear with me for my blogpost on the matter. A lot of games these days just flat out suck. I'm not going to pretend that back in the past, every single game was perfect. One of the biggest differences is that when a company was making an actually good game, they had one shot to just release it, so they had to iron out as many bugs as possible. Now, a company can release rolling updates, but it's never enough to fix their mediocre games.

Even something like Nintendo, one of the biggest innovators of their time, has fallen prey to this. Games like BOTW and Odyssey are generic games, nothing inspiring about them. That's why it's nice to go back to the past and see the kind of things that started standards of the genre, and play games that, even if they're older than me by 30 years, are far more enjoyable than the shit that is supposed to be the top of the line by today's standards.

You do realize that the councils don't magically stop existing because new ones come out, right? I was born in 99, but my family still owned an n64, and I played a lot of games on the system that they already owned

There was also a pretty big emulation and romhacking craze back in the late 2000s thanks to kaizo mario world, leading tons of people to discover 16 bit era games. I myself discovered mario world through a video of a romhack on youtube. I can't remember what it was called, but mario had wario colors

>>3280

That's not good games, it's games you like. You grew up with older systems, and as a result your like the types of games that were popular on those systems. I grew up with n64 and gamecube, and as a result most of my favorite games are 3D platformers like mario sunshine and banjo-kazooie.

It's not even nostalgia, it's a matter of your tastes being colored by experiences you had in your formative years. It's the same reason vaporwave is a thing; people find comfort in things reflective of their childhood

Give it ten years and you'll start seeing people say "man, back in the 2010s there were so many great games like fortnite and pubg. Nowadays, you need to wait like five years for something like that to come out"

I think this happens a lot though. I was born in 1990 and, even though I had a Megadrive, I'd say that my childhood was me and my friends playing on the N64 or Playstation. Late night Goldeneye parties and WWF Smackdown *sips Monster*.

I think a lot of Gen Zers see us doomers going on nostalgically about earlier console generations and, like a little brother trying to imitate his older bro, they pretend like they knew what it was about.

At first I was wondering what sort of yid wrote the OP, then I noticed the date. Barely a month into the current political revolution unless you count GG. Couldn't have known what those born between your cut-off point and 2002 (from my personal experiences) were about to bring to the table. Certainly more than a Memelennial or a bitter X'er whose last ounce of fight seeped out once they collectively realized they were now all the same age that Boomers were in the 90s. Watching the React™ series of videos hardly gives any indication of what we're like in the real world and not the Kosher microcosm ran by the (((Fine))) Bros.

Born in 1997, and it's not that I was poor 90% of my classmates were significantly better financially though, it's just my parents had no fucking idea what game consoles were. First time I played video games of any sort was on an old friend's PS2 and Xbox in 2004; one of the Tony Hawk games, GTA: SA, and DRIV3R. In November of that year I got a PS1, first two games were F1 98 and Destruction Derby 2. Then I got the first ToCA game, Gran Turismo, and Colin McRae Rally. After a year I moved on to the PS2. Again largely racing games until I turned 12 and they deemed me mature enough to play the higher age-rated games. That thing lasted me for over a decade until it bit the dust.

When I grew disinterested in the same old, I started to move back through time as my PC didn't have the guts to play anything beyond 2003 at a good FPS. Emulators for all the home PC platforms of the 80s such as the Atari ST and Amiga. DOOM of course, and I got into a habit of buying 90s PC titles in their original boxes just to see if they'd run on 7 or not. They all actually did, though a couple didn't work 100% correctly in negligible aspects - stuff like menus freezing, graphics requiring a certain filter to look correct etc.. Spent a good summer or two completing them, it was fun buying them at rock bottom prices since they more than made up for it in their charm, plus I get to fuck with future collectorkikes by potentially selling them for 20x what I bought them for. Though that's implying I'd ever want to get rid of them.

I refused to move on to the 7th or 8th gen. Only reason I have a PS4 now is that my sister gave me it as a surprise Christmas present in December 2017. There is some stuff I like, though certain titles are mere shells until you get to tweaking and modifying them on the PC against the devs' wishes cough GTA V cough and actually inject a semblance of what may be construed as fun into them. Forced online is cancer. Always has been, always will be.

If you're still there, we have the answer: it's highly likely they have no inner voice. All this time people used NPC as a meme almost since we knew that we were different from your average normalfag, but none of us had any idea what this entailed. Without delving too deep into conspiracy territory, I'd wager its absence impairs a lot of what we take for granted. Recall ability, the sense of nostalgia, that sort of thing. An inner voice may be the key to truly grasping these concepts.

yknow the actual physical machines dont go anywhere unless they fail for some reason right? its not like some modern always online console that will brick when corporate stops looking at it, so people will have them for a while

this means someone born in 97 can, in fact, grow up with a console from 96 or even earlier

later, we did get exactly that, a ps2, but the ps2 was the living room console, the n64 was mine and in my room, since I only had like 5 games for the n64 I did in fact end up playing many more ps2 games then n64 games

1996 here. My "first" console was a SNES or NES (whichever had those big gray cartridges). I don't remember playing it and it was technically my parents. I only remember it existing in our house and I remember we had a mario game on it. I have a clear memory of me holding the cartridge so I was probably around 3yo. The console broke around that time so we threw it away, but I kept the cartridge for myself until we moved.

My actual first console was a PS1 which I got in 2001. So I pretty much grew up on the platformer genre (crash, spyro, rayman, pacman world, etc) which was the only relevant genre in my area among my friends, other than sports which I wasn't into at all. I only found out that mgs and final fantasy exist when I was 15 which were apparently "the biggest" games of PS1 and "defined" PS1 (according to some e-celebs). I just found those statements utterly false as none of my friends heard of final fantasy until well after 2007. What defined PS1 for my generation at least (and those born 3 years before or later) were platformers, FIFA games, racing games and some multiplayer games like worms armageddon which we'd play when visiting.

However, I did play "retro" games even on my PS1 since there was a NES emulator for it, my dad's friend burned a CD with a bunch of NES games on it which I could play on PS1. Though the only ones I remember liking were hydlide special, bomberman, bubble bobble, (super?) pang and battle city, and a game who's name I can't remember but it was a brick breaking game with some dragon as a boss and I believe it had a level designer.

>COD, Madden, FIFA, LOL, DOTA 2, and GTA 5

I hate all of those games. I did enjoy GTA SA as a kid but now the entire GTA franchise is too boring. I very rarely play LoL and when I do it's to dick around with my friends and troll them and other kids in silver/bronze.

I really dislike most games that are popular these days.

Bitch, I'm not confined to liking what you think I should like. Born in 2000, and I still like listening to Biggie, watching PPG and Care Bears on VHS, and playing SNES on my BVM. Who the fuck are you to take enjoyment of something away from me?

Millennial means you grew up with hope for the future and got it taken away by the 2008 crash. A person born in 1999 don't kno dat feel fam

Nothing happened overnight. It's been going on for decades. Like since 1913 at least in the USA, but much earlier in the UK and Europe.

You do realize those are staged right? No one is that stupid.

I am. I know I'm replying over two months late, but since you replied over three years late, I think you deserve a reply.

I had no TV/Computer at home for a while. First console was an N64 that I bought at some swap meet around 2011 and I got a TV set maybe a year later so I could actually play it. Didn't have internet/computer until later than that. I played goldeneye a lot, when I bought it I didn't know what it was, but it was the only game there that had a guy with a gun on it.

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

I don't even remember the crash, really, other knowing that the economy wasn't doing too well. Obama getting voted in and being praised to high heaven was the big thing I remember from that era.

People seem to think "millennial" means "anyone younger than me" for some reason.

It looks like that I make part on no side here. Grow up playing famiclones. Only got to know retro [S]and current, in fact[/S] vidya relatively late in life. I consider myself a retro gamer.

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.

A retro gamer is someone that plays or enjoy retro games. Doesn't matter if he's 60 or 6 years old.
