General / Re: Ever Bought a Game with No Plans on Opening it?
« on: March 26, 2021, 08:15:00 pm »
Not me, the longest game I had sealed was about a year, then I opened it, it was Megaman X Collection for the PlayStation 2, Sometimes if you get a resealed game the game is not in the case, because the seller don't think some people will notice. My copy was factory sealed and yes it was in the case.

However the case may be I have 2 brand new controllers still sealed that I have gotten new, I don't plan on opening them, unless I need them for something.

I suppose some people will scalp sealed games, than sell them when they go up in value but, sometimes things go down in value over time instead. Lifes too short for buying things you are never going to use in my opinion. Nobody knows what the future holds for any of us.

One game I enjoyed in class in junior high school on a Monochrome Screen  Apple II was called Swashbuckler.

That is a 2D fighting game where you control a man with a sword and you press keys to slash, different opponents, and I think i beat it in class one day. (edit) according to the video there is no end to this game.

After I finished with my normal classwork I would play this game for the remainder of the class

that game video is in color but it looks worst than the Atari 2600/VCS, I personally played Swashbuckler in green/monochrome display though

At a local goodwill today they had nothing but an entire collection of PlayStation 2 Madden games for sale 1 NHL and 1 NBA game oh yea and Rock Band for the PS3.

Needless to say I didn't buy any video games yesterday, they had at least 10 different Madden games, and like I said earlier I don't know how to play any Madden game

Been finding new (at least to me) retro video games all my life. and mostly every time I go out game shopping, to be honest? I even have games in my collection that have yet to be discovered by me or at least played.

But I only by  buy a game if I think it's gonna be good. or it's a genre I interested in

This in unfounded information that originated from a website nobody ever heard about before. It's causing mass panic on several sites over the last 24 hours.... posting this unverified information is reckless and stupid.

Why would updates be effected by the store anyway?

Well years ago SONY closed down the PS3 Music CD information Server and SONY's Excuse was? that someone was caught cheating on their spouse.

technically SONY has the right to do this to the patch servers and store as well, I hope the patches will stay active but only time will tell.


- Answering to @oldgamerz

Thank you for being part of the project.
I am not sure about using those colors and big letters, though.
It looks a bit messy for me and I want that people can easily focus in a name of the list.

I was only trying to keep my brain active creating that post and the last one

 the list. on what I said here it is without all the colors

this is every game in order from decent to great, but I think them all are great
#4 Call Of Duty: Finest Hour
#3 Call Of Duty 3
#2 Call Of Duty World At War: Final Fronts
#1 Call Of Duty 2: Big Red One

(don't go off topic but)
I would like to know if anyone liked what I did,  I wanted to add something a little different, and those posting tools are there so I thought I'd make some usage of them, sometimes a change from the ordinary is good or bad depending on the person. :)

I cleaned it up a little

This List is the of the 4 Call Of Duty Games that Came out on the PlayStation 2 (all these games are 1st Person Shooters)  all great in my own opinion

 #4 Call Of Duty Finest Hour

well technically this has the same single player campaign as on the "Nintendo GameCube" and "The Original Microsoft Xbox" now with that out of the way
this was the vary first Call Of Duty game that came out on consoles, it's a WWII game that has 3 Different single player Campaigns that you need to beat all the missions in the Russian army. Campaign before, you Can unlock the 2nd Campaign where you are  the British army. then once, you beat the British army Campaign, You than unlock the American Campaign. If you beat ALL the missions in the game and all 3 campaigns on each different difficulty setting. you can unlock new game modes of single play.
If you beat on easy you can Unlock 

Big heads mode
Head Shot mode
Ricochet mode

if you beat the entire game and all the missions on Medium difficulty you can unlock
Dead Eye Mode
Shrink Shot Mode

(On Hardest Difficulty?)
Big 'n' Small Mode

#3: Call Of Duty 3,

another WWII based First Person Shooter game with 1 single player campaign that automatically switches between different Allied forces of WWII era, you can play as most of the Allies Except for Russian's during a great lengthy campaign

#2: Call Of Duty World At War: Final Fronts (exclusive must have game for the PlayStation 2)

first console Call Of Duty game that takes place in WWII with some of the mission taking place in Japan this PS2 version is different then the Xbox 360 version don't know about the PS3 version. "Call Of Dufy World At War" is a Different game

#1 Call Of Duty 2: Big Red One.(THE GREATEST OF ALL FOUR GAMES) in my own opinion
Another WWII based Call Of Duty game with only 1 campaign, and you only play as the US Army during events of WWII I think is is the Greatest One in my own Opinion



(edit) BUT YOU CAN I Just wanted to post something new for a change (see quote for an example how I did this)

I don't want this to be spam, but these PS2 games are more then one game together on one disc,  all of these titles can be found on the PlayStation 2 (in north America)  some of these game compilations  can also be found on the Nintendo GameCube and the Original Xbox as well (high recommend them)

(ALL GREAT) in my own opinion

another way I pre planned my collection was by buying video game compilations, instead of buying all my games individually. (for example) most of my Atari 2600 games I got on both the Activision Anthology and the Atari Anthology, game discs and I've added most the games in there to my VG collection. A lot of those games I can't add to my VG collection because they are arcade ports but I put Higher value on my compilations then the rest of my games. according to the Database only a few of the members on this site have Atari Anthology and Activision Anthology as well as just about all the collections on one single disc.

With a more recent topic about the Atari 2600, I thought maybe some of you could share your thoughts about green and black screened video games. Of the Apple II Macintosh computers of the Mid 1980's or other green screened gaming. Or program devices of the 1980's. Believe it or not I actually had my own personal green screened Apple II computer as a young child at home. and also played games on it, off floppy discs like this Olympic skating sim and others floppy games I had and can't remember.

Main question is do you think that the green screen graphics are better or worse then the Atari 2600's full colored, yet less detailed graphics? Or maybe compare the Apple II graphics to the 1st Nintendo Entertainment System/NES's graphics? Or? any other console of the 1980's for that mater.

I prefer both the NES and the Atari 2600 colored graphics when comparing them to an early computer. like the or Apple II

I also played another Apple II Green Screened computer. at my junior high school. around the year 2000 the last time I operated a green screened computer was actually around 2000-2001 in class at my junior high school.

This Was the Atari 2600 at it best it could do

the best that the NES could do pretty much

I am an all round game fan, I have no nostalgia for anything under the 5th console generation but sometimes I want to play some video Olympics, or Breakout, I just like playing most games :)

And "Star Ship" is the only game I know of that lets you target and shoot Toilets, Bugs and Blue Flying Saucers, in outer space  :P

and use a mech to fart on a  giant space cookie :o

I never learned or bothered to learn how to play the "Quest" games, or Haunted House. I did look up how to play Adventure however those are not my favorite Atari 2600 games though :-\

Have You played Star Ship?  or Chopper Command? or Asteroids? or Boxing? or, "Street Racer"? Skiing? Plaque Attack? Demon Attack? Space Invaders? Journey Escape?

I only played games through emulation, mostly on PlayStation 2. and the AtGames Atari Flashback consoles. Your not wrong with your claims @sworddude but the games are still fun for the few and if were talking worst console ever mine would be the Magnavox Odyssey 1. in spite of it being a 1972 game console, I think it should have had some kind of graphics sound, and AI if were talking the computer game Space War in which came out in 1962 10 years before the Magnavox Odyssey came out.

At least the Atari 2600 had graphics sound and AI at all, but coming from playing more modern games I am definitely not calling the Atari 2600 the best console ever, that would be crazy for me to say in my opinion.

Manuals needed to be read on some atari 2600 games like E.T but I never played that game and don't think I ever will.

Atari 2600 games were made vary simple most of them were easy to understand how to play, the controller was basically a joystick with 1 button, the major downside for me would be that you needed to sit by the game console itself and keep hitting the reset switch every single time you lost the game.

I don't have a real Atari 2600 console, but I still like the games themselves, in my opinion it was a huge step above the 1st generation consoles, being the PONG clones and the Magnavox Odyssey 1 in 1972, the Magnavox Odyssey 1 tv console, didn't have any sound or any graphics or any AI programming or computer opponent. OR any video game names for sake. all of which makes a video game worth playing in my opinion.

so people back then (as far as home television game consoles go) the Atari 2600 was a HUGE step forward back in 1977-1978,

I can appreciate the Atari 2600 for what it was at the time, but I don't have barley any interest in the original Magnavox Odyssey. I Mean all the games used plastic sheets and basically a white dot that would shine behind the overlay. the 1st Odyssey had no programming other than a primitive computer mouse curser in the shape of a white square.

not to mention the Atari 2600 had COLOR as well as a Black and White Option, no overlays

Personally, I'd take Intellivision over Atari 2600 any day. There's a much more interesting variety of games, IMO.
Although the Intellivision games were great , the controllers sucked the worst out of the big 3 consoles IMO and the fact that you could not just go out and buy a better one for it hobbled it . They sold those joystick kits for the stock controllers , but it was like putting a Band-Aid on a knife wound . I picked up a TandyVision One last year and those controllers certainly bring back bad memories .

Can you plug a Sega Genesis controller into it and use It? You can on the Atari 2600.

I would imagine no. Most Intellivision games I've played. Even on the Intellivison Flashback it required more then 6-or 8 buttons to play most the games. the Intellivison controller has 3 or 4 side buttons, and a circle like disc object for a d-pad than and 12 telephone like other buttons on it.

 it made usage of all those 17 buttons, and quite a few Intellivision games had a vary complex in game menu option. They also used plastic or paper overlays the games, that would slide into the controller. It told the player what buttons to press, and how to play these vary complex video games, for this console

The Colecovision console and controller setup, was about the same as the Intellivision. Except the Colecovision was 8-bit instead of having a 16-bit processer like the Intellivision

(this is what the Mattel Intellivision controller looked like)

(if anyone is curious this is what the Atari 2600 controller looked like)

I was talking to someone at work today about video games. He was talking about Skyrim. I tell him I love the entire Elder Scrolls series. That I bought my original Xbox just so I could play Morrowind because it blew my mind at the time.

He then tells me he remembers that being the first console he ever played...damn did that make me feel old.

it's amazing to myself, just how old the video game culture really is, and that it's started to become mainstream in many peoples lives (edit) over 50 years ago! from today. and for others over 60 years ago, my dad was born in 1965 and even he used to be a hard core gamer. for a long portion of his life. he used to play games in the arcades.

I once heard that some Tempest like game was the first video game made in 1954 on some university computer, but now google is saying the PONG was the first video game invented in 1958 so I don't know what to beleve
