Overrated games
« on: October 27, 2004, 01:42:46 pm »
There must be games which everybody else seems to rave about but you just dont get it...

please share - but don't forget to put a hard hat on because there's bound to be flak comin your way!  ;D

OK...so here goes...mine is:

Battlezone

ok if your peering though a periscope in a darkened arcade in 1980 i suppose. But is it really worth installing topfire joysticks on your cab to play a game with such basic game play?

I'd say Space Invaders. I tried it again (when I got MAME) and I was baffled how much it actually ... well .. sucked.

a search for a battlezone machine is what brought me to mame, one of my favorite games.  when I built my cab, I didn't put topfires on.  I programmed my 2 eight ways for left forward and back, right forward and back.  to fire i push either stick to the center of the panel.

Street fighter I don't like.

:o WHAT!!! :o

Seriously though, to each his own.  I personally think Space Invaders kicks ass, but then again I played it like crazy back on Atari so I've always been kinda hooked.

But that's just it. I was a great fan when these cabs were around too, but now I tried it again and I couldn't see what I ever liked in it. Of course it has the charm and all, but the game itself didn't do anything for me anymore. I did still like Galaga though. For some reason that (almost similar game I guess) did keep it's fun for me.

I'm not a big fan of RPGs...  It just seems so boring to me.  When I play a game I want to press a button and have the character instantly do what I demand, I don't want to go through a list of spells or attacks, select it and then watch the action!

My home slice Joe is all about RPGs, he's all like "I play for the story line"  blah blah blah  If you want a story line read a book or watch a movie, video games are about action and reaction.  FYI he also uses the "i play for the story line" bull crap when we rag on him about cheating.  I swear he can't play a game for five minutes without using gameshark/AR/whatever!
If there's bees in the trap I'm catching em
By the thorax and abdomen
And sanding the stingers down to a rough quill
Then I dip em in ink, and I scribble a bit
But if it they wriggle then I tickle em until they hold still
Lemme say it again
In my land of pretend
I use bees as a mf'n pen

Donkey Kong

I think of Donkey Kong like I think of Galaxian, it was a game that was massively popular because it defined a whole new genre. BUT it ended up being the worst game in the new genre it defined.

hmmm, some harsh words there!! if RPG is role playing games (and not rocket propelled grenade) im with you, crashwg. im not sure if that includes those online things like everquest (i think its called). my housemate keeps telling me how amazing these games are- you can be anything!! even a courier or banker. wow. im gonna spend ten hours a day (like he does) online pretending to be something im not interested in doing in real life...

in fact, if he spent ten hours a day doing real life stuff, meeting people etc he mightn't have such a mundane existance. he could fly REAL airplanes, do REAL travelling etc...

with arcades, i could never get into the streetfighter type games. simpler fighters like robocop and asterix are fine (two buttons). but all those strange combo shots i could never get the hang of.

i cant say anything bad about old games like space invaders because back in its time, it was amazing. in the context of today, obviously not quite so captivating  ;)

btw- home slice joe? wtf?

You said it, Danny.  I hated playing in an arcade, trying to figure out the moves, and some 10-year old drops in a quarter and whips me in 5 seconds.  Blah!

Since I got my Neo Geo I have had a lot of fun with the fighting games, since neither me nor any of my friends know ANY of the moves. It comes out fair that way.

hadn't thought of it that way!! bit like everyone dancing when they're drunk  :)

still, a 'street fighter' type game on my cocktail cab would be a bit silly anyway so it's academic i guess in my case...

PACMAN/MRS. PACMAN!!!!

geez these games were so overrated.  i grew up in the 80's and played these games some, but i never saw the draw to them to keep playing over and over again.  i mean, whats the draw?  getting that extra cherry to boost your new high score?  yes there was strategy and all that, but i only have the pacman games on my cab for nostalgia.  i think ive played them maybe twice.

I agree, Street Fighter games are all the same.  It's all button mashing in the hopes of getting combo... and when you get a combo, you spend the next couple of times figuring out how did I do that.

Space Invaders is a classic.  Back then, it was the best game ever, but when you compare to now, it's seems basic and boring.

When you're not paying to play, a lot of games become boring.

Lunar Landar was one of my favorites, in the arcade, but with unlimited fuel the game stinks.

I'll agree...to a point.  On the original cabinet it's much cooler.  You've got the reflected image against the planet, which is lit by a blacklight.  It's still a *really* cool effect.  It does get boring quickly, though, because the gameplay never changes.

I would have to agree with all that voted on Fighting games. Guess these came out a little after my time in the arcades. Now my kids on the other hand, only play these type of games with their friends. When I show him one of my all time favorites "Asteroids", he yawns..."Geez Dad, thats soooo boring".

I guess we all have to remember the thrill in our days playing these wonderful (basic) games.

Now Tempest/Marble Madness games on the other hand (or any spinner/trackball games) require skill, unlike those Neo-Geo type games  :D (better crouch and put on the hard hate  :o
Vids:  Home built MAME machine, Crystal Castles. Arkanoid
Pins:   Williams Aztec (working). Stern Nugent (not working...yet), Williams Phoenix (major not working, missing parts.... )

Always on the lookout for buying 90's game with Ramps that need work...

I tend to agree on the Street Fighter style games.  I played them some in the arcade but never got a good feel for them.  Didn't mind Street Fighter II for my SNES, though.

Yes, but then I've also got the periscope to complete the effect. ;)


I never cared for Defender myself. Missile Command either.

hahahahahahahhha....hahahhaha...sorry but..LOL ;)
They arent ALL the same...EVERY single street fighter ever released by capcom has many many different styles of play but you SERIOUSLLY have to get into the game to figure things out.Its not all fireballs and uppercuts.Capcom vs snk 2 for instance has serious reply value with 6 different grooves and 44 characters.you can locate some videos here and see how it goes now a day :)

I also prefer Galaxians,  partly because of nostalgia, but also because the sound effects are better and it's harder.

Galaga does have more variety though.

Hate to say it, but  I just don't get the entire 2d fighting genre.  zzzzz.  I am sure it's my advanced 39 years, but the appeal alludes me.  

And it's not the violence, I love UT2004.

Most people who like 2d fighters are spoiled kids with no appreciation for the history of gaming.

Yes, there was a time when there were no PCs to play your games on.  At this time, I was WRITING my own games on a PDP-11 because you could not BUY games.

A class called "Introduction to computers" was not like, this is a mouse, this is where you click to open word...  It is where you learned Cobol, Fortran, and Pascal.  BASIC was considered a plaything.

You just don't appreciate what a great advancement Pong was.  Or how incredible it was the first time COLOR graphics were used in a game.

Street Fighter is not a new idea.  Chinese Hero and Yie Ar Kung Fu (sp?) are 2d fighters born in the 80s.  Street Fighter and the new generation of 2d fighters are just mindless buttom mashing rip-offs of classic titles, sprinkling in a few lame options to keep kids thinking something new was there.

Any of you out there consider yourselves a 2d fighting game master?  It didn't take you too long, did it?  It took over 25 years for someone (to date, only 1 PERSON) to master Pac Man.

Most people who like 2d fighters are spoiled kids with no appreciation for the history of gaming.

Let me just stop you there^

Most spoiled little kids - care only for games that are 3d and "new" and place aesthetics very highly.

Heres what you read like...

An old fart who lost touch of gaming in the late 80's, and assumes an arrogance because he happened to be around at the dawn of gaming.

I'm glad you recognized my parody of this:

most people who dont like 2d fighters are button mashing noobs who cant grasp the games..


Now, what do you suppose this reads like?

bear in mind most comments are from the perspective of the time the game came out. so to me, space invaders was cool (in its time) while streetfighter etc were lame (in ITS time).
