Any NES fans in the audience tonight? Mega Man got into music and gaming simultaneously as a kid and i'll forever be grateful
I'm not a huge fan of NES games in general as the library is full of jank, but Mega Man is pretty cool. Castlevania 1 and 3 are still some of the best games ever made.
Yeah you definitely have to do some digging to find good ones but I am forever in love with that graphical style and 8-bit music in general. Castlevania 3 is def up there for me. I recommend Gargoyles Quest 2 if you have never played it, it is a great action platformer with awesome music
I don't think I've tried that one so I'll check it out. One thing I miss is the overall difficulty of the era. It feels like games got progressively easier as time passed.
Yeah I agree, I also appreciate that playing older games taught me to just figure out what to do cause there was no way in hell I was reading a manual as a kid. The fact that I can turn on my NES or SNES and be actually playing the game in under a minute is a blessing in the current era
I have never played it but the fact that the little homie on the front is basically a baby bubble bobble dino is an instant yes. Those graphics look comfy too
Yeah I mean I am a few minutes in and already down with this game. Sunsoft always had great music and the sprite art is awesome too. Thanks for the rec it has been quite some time since I had a new NES game to play!
The moment I realized you could jump off your own star, which can get you to secrets, it all clicked. It is a shame secret areas aren't really a thing. They are so cool in old games, and finding a secret level? Basically crack for my young mind
Leaving behind his NES is the only good thing my biological father ever did for me. I just had SMB and Duck Hunt but they were fun games and the only games I had until I was a teenager. Honestly though most of the games are too old for me, it's hard for me to get into them because the quality of life improvements like game saves, decent menus, etc. etc. aren't there. I played Castlevania 1 a few months ago and it was really fun though
I had all three mario bros games but my sister let her friend borrow mario bros 3 and then stopped being friends with her before we got it back. I was too young at the time to realize what we lost though thankfully
I am playing Mega Man II now, I used to suck at these games but something clicked I guess. This is actually pretty forgiving compared to something like Hollow Knight. If you die you start off right before the boss unless you get a game over and even then you just start over at the beginning of the level, although I haven't had to do that yet. None of the bosses have taken me more than a couple tries yet.
Also I just have Metal Man and Heat Man left
Chrono trigger was snes but I adore that game and the music
Lol, Metal Man's weapon is way overpowered, why'd you save him for last?
Er wait I meant Quick Man and Heat Man. Metal Man was one of the first I did. I think my favorite weapon is the one I got from Air Man.
Yeah I still listen to that OST all the time. NES and SNES both have a special place in my heart but there are just so many great SNES soundtracks
Not her, but I usually do odd orders whenever I replay Mega Man games.
i have finished all the classic games aside from megaman 8/7, my favorites from the classic series gotta be 9,4,11,
currently playing battle network 3
How do I git gud at these games or make them easier? I suck so bad at them. I'm playing Contra and I love the gameplay but it's super hard.
The universal key to getting good at any game is to keep trying and to also recognize common things that are happening when you lose.
