funny thing about that, during the Gulf War, they found an old Game Boy that'd been bombed and when they turned it on, it actually worked! it's in the Smithsonian if you want to check it out and here's a picture of itI swear old Nintendo systems are unbreakable, every single one of my old Nintendo consoles still works to this day from my parents NES form the 80s to my Gameboy Micro that I must've dropped hundreds of times as a kid. I never actually owned a 16 bit console myself aside from playing a Genesis at a friend's house, I only had the NES until the PS1 came out so pretty much all my first experiences with video games until I was like 8 were all on 8-bit consoles
I play a lot of MS-DOS games as well. I have a collection of Pc games, that are for Windows and DOS. Granted, I can't play most of them, because there ancient. Unless there is a community fix (Like with Doom or Total Annihilation) I tend to focus on my DOS games instead.MS-DOS give to us a lot of big and memorable games... and the biggest pile of shitty games XDDD On MS-DOS I remember playing Prince of Persia, Batman and Home Alone 2 (This is PAIN).
Turtles in time is one of the best beat em up for the system. I LOVE IT!!The only retro console I own is an SNES, which I have 3 games for: Super Mario World, Street Fighter 2, and TMNT4, Turtles in Time. It's not in the best shape I'll admit, but I don't think it's unplayable. I played it as recent as a year ago on my old TV, and haven't really tested it out again since.
In addition, I also has the cartridge for Super Mario Bros 2, but no NES to play it on, I don;t even know if it still works, I just found it randomly in my closet last year.
That's actually the game I always did the worst at on the SNES. Maybe it's just because I'm not good at beat em' ups, but I could never seem to get past the third stage, no matter how many times I tried.Turtles in time is one of the best beat em up for the system. I LOVE IT!!
WOW!! You have A LOT!!This is my console list:
Game Boy Color
Game Boy Advance
Game Boy Advance SP
Nintendo 3DS XL
And im trying to get more oldies to add to my collection.
Dunno about everyone else, but I consider a game retro if I can count the pixels without zooming in. =pI wonder, how old does a game have to be in order to be considered "retro" in this day and age. Anything released before Windows 95 sounds fair, I reckon?
I kinda feel like The Butt Zone's retro game board has it right set at 1999, end of the domination of 2D and the start of experimental 3D taking place right before the PS2 launched.I wonder, how old does a game have to be in order to be considered "retro" in this day and age.
That time frame includes too many things that make me feel old if we start calling them retro. I refuse!I kinda feel like The Butt Zone's retro game board has it right set at 1999, end of the domination of 2D and the start of experimental 3D taking place right before the PS2 launched.
