  1. Gaiden, or How I Stopped Worrying & Love the NES

    i'm in almost the exact same situation, i'd like to see a modern interpretation of these ideas cause while the graphics and UI are dated it has some really good ideas and more than most other FE games you really get this civil war vibe like a real medieval conflict moving from region to region fighting a guerilla war, taking forts, the gameplay really helps to convey the story, it's really briliant for a Famicoms game, as far as the scale and worldbuilding goes, i need to play he remake
  2. Gaiden, or How I Stopped Worrying & Love the NES

    So many 16 bit games have aged well though, i think it must be because it was one of the last eras focused on sprite art meaning that the more high-tech sprites could render animation that kind of imitates hand-drawn art, it was one of the first eras where form could be considered over function and good design graphically always ages well, i think a lot of graphics before and after 16 bit look wonky because they were so focused on function (on the NES and master system they had to consider the color palette and the number of sprites they can have and on the PS1 Saturn and N64 they had to figure out how the models would animate and stuff) i love 16 bit graphics man, i wish they would make more sprite-based rpgs

    oh yeah definitely if you're talking the original version, both have been remade a lot and the remakes are better
  4. Gaiden, or How I Stopped Worrying & Love the NES

    meh it's ok just cryptic and slow and there isn't much story, a product of the time i guess, which is weird cause i'm the freak who actually likes 2 and doesn't really like 7 i sware to god something wrong with me
  5. Gaiden, or How I Stopped Worrying & Love the NES

  6. Gaiden, or How I Stopped Worrying & Love the NES

    meh i like old dragon quest ok and a lot of 16 bit stuff is cool
  7. Gaiden, or How I Stopped Worrying & Love the NES

    yeah but i started there too and i guess a quality game is a good game, even if it's dated and from interviews with the creators, it seems like they were really proud of it, it's really good for an NES game, maybe it can't hold up to contemporary games, but i dunno, it's charming
  8. So I've been playing Gaiden on the NES, and I'm honestly pleasantly surprised this game is of course dated I mean it's almost 30 years old and in the gaming world that's an eternity but I honestly think it's ahead of it's time, narrative wise it's lacking but for an NES game the sense of scale is spectacular, the tactical elements are there, the element of exploration is very well developed, i honestly don't get why this game is so ostracized by this community, it's weird and it's different but it's innovative and fun, and simple and endearing, why do people hate this so much? It's not bad
  9. especially without permadeath, i think it brings to the forefront some of awakenings design problems
  10. i think maybe if they remade an older game on the current engine it would be so good
