Quote from: zeebo on January 09, 2016, 02:06:30 PMThere's always retro gaming ... where the graphics are clunky, but the fun is plentiful. (Also some good indie games, at least on pc.)
Quote from: Emergency Bacon on January 09, 2016, 05:39:58 PMAgreed. I've got all my favourites backed up on emulator. And the modern retro games being made are pretty awesome too. Just saw this one today called Punch Club.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=345g7VNvnOo
Quote from: Auslandia on January 11, 2016, 08:57:36 PMI haven't played video games in a decade or more -- actually since Tribes 2. So I bought Call of Duty 4 for $9.99 and it was kind of fun but what pissed me off even more was that the multiplayer doesn't work anymore. Oh well back to no games lol.

Quote from: Auslandia on January 11, 2016, 09:25:25 PMMacbook pro -- I went through Steam for COD. Played through the single player missions to learn the controls. I got a little bored. I really enjoy multiplayer but I think I need something modded with cooler features. Probably something with good characters so that team play is has more strategy -- meaning, snipers, heavies, etc. maybe vehicles too. I dunno
Quote from: Dr. MD MD on January 11, 2016, 09:30:44 PMYeah, gaming's a little tougher for us mac dudes. If you bought it through Steam recently shouldn't there be a multiplayer option? Or is it just that no one's playing it anymore? If you want to emulate older games install this: http://openemu.org/ but select the experimental version because it will allow more emulators to run. Works great on my mini!

Quote from: comaphobe on January 12, 2016, 02:21:56 AMI haven't played anything proper in over a decade. Recently (10 or so years) I have just played with the PSP or the Rollercoaster Tycoon games on the PC. The last relevant games I played were GTA San Andreas, Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater, and Ace Combat 5 on PS2.I always revert back to 8 and 16 bit though. Emulation on a PC, or preferably on PSP where the button configuration is so natural and the games look natural and even excellent on that size of screen. My favorite emulators are for Colecovision, Commodore 64, and Super Nintendo. I spend the most time playing games from these 3 systems. They are my personal favorite 8 and 16 bit game machines of all time so of all of my emulators (30 or so) these 3 get used most often. I also use a Turbografx16/NEC PC Engine emulator for Galaga '88 which was an excellent sequel to Galaga.Some of my favorite retro games are Impossible Mission (C64), Montezuma's Revenge (C64), Raid Over Moscow (C64), Space Taxi (C64) Frenzy (Colecovision), Tetris Attack (SNES), Orb 3D (NES), Baseball Simulator .1000 (NES), Donkey Kong Country 2-3 (SNES), Earthworm Jim 2 (SNES), Gauntlet 1-2, and a few games that were for Gameboy like Ghostbusters II, Final Fantasy, and Revenge of Gator (a very awesome pinball game). I have tried many different emulators and games on phone with piss-poor results. the concept of touchscreen adds so much latency that playing 99% of games is either redundant or totally impossible. The only game I can play for an emulated machine on my phone while having moderate success rate is Baseball Simulator 1000 (NES) or maybe Revenge of Gator (Gameboy). Any other game moves too fast to control properly, even Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune are too difficult to navigate through the alphabet while a timer is counting down. Without a proper controller or d-pad playing most things on a phone is too stressful. One time I tried to play Contra and even did the up up down down left right B A start trick at the sliding menu screen and I still didn't make it to the final stage. So many retro games to talk about, so little time. I love Commodore I even have tattoo.
Quote from: albrecht on January 12, 2016, 07:58:29 PMWhat no Vectrex? Still works and though I've lost the screen deal the games are still good!
Quote from: Dr. MD MD on January 12, 2016, 08:25:13 PMLucky duck! Those are so cool! I have the app version on my iPad. I've never actually played a real Vectrex before. What games do you have?
Quote from: albrecht on January 12, 2016, 08:39:41 PMNot as much as I would like. Interestingly some kids still like 'old games' like Vectrex and the standalone (cheating, I know, with the 'super chip' so many games) and, for once, ability to rival or beat them! Armor AttackScramble (the best game!)Solar Questand a few others I can't remember.ps: want I really want is a Tempest stand alone. Some games need special controls and can't 'super chip' to get real play.

Quote from: zeebo on January 13, 2016, 12:34:37 AMSnake Eater was cool - my fave of the MGS series. Another fun one on PS2 I just remembered was Burnout: Takedown - what a fun game. And of course Deus Ex. (I guess the PC version was supposedly better but I loved the console version/controls.)
Quote from: Evil Twin Of Zen on January 13, 2016, 04:09:38 PMi play a lot of the old games on a DSlite using an Acekard 2 loaded with emulators. i've been playing movies on that same hand held. they play really well and the sound is amazing when using ear buds. nice way to kill time at an airport.
