Default Remember when video games were made so you COULDN'T beat them?!

Do they still have 'game over' ????

What a different world we live in now with video games. If you get stuck or take too long to advance a hint pops up in the corner of the screen. First thing kids do now is go right online for all the codes or walk-throughs.

YOU HAD 3 LIVES TO BEAT CONTRA!

YOU KNOW HOW LONG IT TOOK ME TO FIGURE OUT THAT I HAD TO PULL MY CONTROLLER AND PUT IT IN PORT 2 IN ORDER TO BEAT METAL GEAR?!

Some games you threw in and all it said was PRESS START. There were no options to make yourself feel more comfortable. Some games, if you wanted to lower the difficulty level it said something degrading like 'Pussy' instead of 'Easy'

The average kid who thinks he's a gamer these days won't make it past level 1 in Zombies Ate My Neighbors or Streets of Rage.

Nobody under the age of 20 can beat Shao Kahn in MK3 and if it's MK2 they won't even make it past Kitana. I was doing BRUTALITIES in the arcade! That doesn't happen now.

Some of the puzzles in the first two Resident Evils were next to impossible.

Damn, I remember writing down passwords. Or trying to memorize codes from magazines while at the store. Only to find out when I got home that I memorized the Sega CD code not Genesis. Kids in school were spreading rumors about codes and secrets. Game Pro had a few codes then Tips and Tricks would drop and have completely different ones. Those days were fun. I miss when everything was word of mouth like that. I miss when EVERYONE thought Sonya Blade had a Fatality where she got naked.

Good thread.

I had a ton of NES and SNES games back in the day, I remember the SNES games being more forgiving, but I reckon I completed less than 1/4 of my NES games. It wasn't always the difficulty but the length of the games! Some had 100+ levels, and with no end in sight I usually gave up I laugh when games today have like 20 hours of gameplay!

The point I remember being stuck at the longest was Vega in Street Fighter II on the SNES. Me and my friend literally took turns in shifts to beat him.

Haha, yeah every school had some bullshitter who claimed they'd unearthed secrets like that, I still remember the Sheng Long hoax...

What happened to good old epic boss fights? Like in Metroid, Zelda, Metal Gear. something to look forward too. Instead of the same boring repetitive bullshit.

The last great original game i've played was PORTAL 2 for Xbox-Box 360.

Just picked up The Last Of Us REMASTERED for PS4, liked it so much on the PS3 I had to get the REMASTERED VERSION.

NES games were fucking hard. I didn't complete many of them as a kid but I sure played the shit out of them.

I miss when video games were about having fun, solving a puzzle or just a straight up troll by the developers who made shit ridiculously hard to beat. These so-called immersive epic games today that are all the rage where you just watch a whole lot of cut scenes are boring to me. If I want to feel immersed in an epic, sad story I'll watch a movie.

I had Road Rash 2 where the booklet had like 7 pages for you to write passwords in lol

I miss the 8-bit music.

I miss the secrets too. When you heard a rumour at school about a secret and you rush home and try it out.

I loved the video shops and hiring video games. If a game had a save feature I would always play the previous for a bit lol there would always be the one game you want to hire and you go back to the video shop but the cunt hasn't returned it for about a week

I miss when developers and publishers didn't screw the consumer over in the pursuit of money. The pre-day one DLC, online passes, release now patch later etc days
