Most of these came out within the same fucking month of each other, best damn period in gaming history.

Maybe it's nostalgia, but I can't remember very many shitty games. There were types of games I didn't like, but they all made attempts at improving with every generation.

While the power of the rose-tinted goggles are great, I don't think you're wrong here- this time period was very special in gaming. It was sort of in between the era when it became ALL ABOUT MONEY and when it was ALL ABOUT MAKING SOMETHING FUN. Not that I'm saying these games weren't meant to make money, just that there was more... passion involved in their creation.

Today, games feel soulless. Hollow. They're missing that human element of charm. I think that's what makes this different from nostalgic longing.

Of course not. If a game sucks then you stop playing it

Well there were shitty games back then too, but there wasn't a giant pile of barely-even-counts-as-a-game shovelware bullshit, which is what there is now. At least on Steam.

OOT trailers were the peak of gaming for me. Nothing has ever topped the thrill from watching OOT trailers, before the release. The first and last game I have ever preordered.

How old are you? I was a gamer ONLY back in the 90's, when I could still follow games and systems mainly because I could see improvements. You show me a game refreshed in the past 10 years and I can't tell which is new or old.

But I can't remember half the shit that came out before and I can't recall their release dates

What it was like being a gamer in 1989 https://hooktube.com/JLGquPLLHpk?t=30s

Back then the city mayor was a wrestler and did not hesitate to kill street thrugs with german suplex and piledriver on concrete, teaming with his daughter bf and his roof top korean friend from the gym

Final Fight was the shit back in the day. Also a shout-out to Streets of Rage, which had the same Charles Bronson vibe about reclaiming the inner city streets.

Did you get the bad ending at streets of rage?

What a shock when it happened to us, happened "accidentally" when we finished the game for the 300 time

Happens when you kill your partner before the boss

That's just how things used to get done. I would be displeased to see my current mayor trying a similar stunt. I also doubt he would get very far through downtown.

I continued to starcraft 2. Spent about 2 decades of my life on blizzard games. Now everything is DLC and pay to win and they're SJWs. The mighty has fallen.

Hahaha, wait until starcraft 3 retconned the whole lore and turn Kerrigan and Nova into fat tranny niggers wearing hijabs.

Arcturus Mengst will be the last straight "white male" in the game. On and Raynor is renamed as Raul and speak Spanish.

The LotV campaign was basically you playing as the leader of the Protoss securing the existence of your people. The character comes close to saying the 14 words. The story had a very identitarian vibe to it, but they still had a bit of "Look here we have these slightly different protoss, so we're diverse" so it's not too obvious.

I agree it's annoying how the game is broken up into a bunch of different pieces. Now at least, the multiplayer (except ranked) is free and you can get the full campaign for 40$ which is pretty good for the content. It's still the best recent RTS game, unless I missed something and one of the best 1v1 games.

These days games are such safe spaces that some games have made it impossible to even chat with the other team... And talking smack in those that don't get you banned :/

WoW was a leader in safe spaces, no communication with the other side. Along with restricted pvp, it was hand-holding and feelings protection turned up to 11.

Coming from eve online I thought since you could not drop your shit in world of warcraft that the goal of pvp was to kill others so much they switched servers, but that's griefing . I was never any good at it anyway.

Those silver coin challenges had me playing the damn game through to perfection, on the hardest mode (where the fucking computer cheated so much). I eventually sold Mario Kart 64 and kept Diddy (though its four-player paled in comparison to battle mode in MK64).

This was the first game where I tried to complete everything. Once I had collected all the silver coins I saw that I was still short. I flew around looking for anything and eventually ran into the sign by the lighthouse that opened up the space level. This game introduced me to exploring world's and looking for secrets.
