Gaming Magazines Anonymous 03/22/2023 (Wed) 05:47:27 No.1573
Do you miss them? Or are they antiquated? On the one hand, they couldn't compete with the lightning fast and continuously updating information online, but on the other hand, I think they were more than just a printed slice of latest info and had an entire culture about them.
>>5388 Checked. <All according to plan, go...guys This is why White/Asian men need to remember their heritage. Just like in 1984, if you can remove history, you can make people believe anything about themselves. Its not uncommon for totally-not-feds "zoomers" to tell all the cool kids that saving archives, etc., is ridiculous.
>>5389 Archiving everything is a must.
>>5390 BUT THEY'LL CALL YOU A HOARDER! You don't want that do you anon? Just think of the optics.
>>5402 Huh? How is archiving everything hoarding?
>>5403 Lol, you tell me Anon. But that's what you'll be called now if you go into an enclave of cool kids and make just that statement. :^) Regardless, that term should be a badge of honor for every Anon during Current Year, when the globalist kikes are trying to memory hole everything they can of White men's past and heritage, just as fast a they possibly can manage it.
>>5405 >But that's what you'll be called now if you go into an enclave of cool kids and make just that statement. They do know that you don't actually hoard anything?
>>5406 No I hoard the shit out of everything, because I've got some commonsense during CY.
>>5386 >Was that so bad though? Depending on how much disposable income you (or your parents) had yeah it could be pretty shit, going into some games blind can be an awful experience. My family was poor so there were multiple times I got stuck with a true piece of shit because I decided to try my luck and rent something I'd never seen before. It wasn't mind-bendingly awful like streamer faggotry though, I rarely use sites like youtube and have literally never directly seen twitch outside of webms or screencaps people post on imageboards yet I'm still occasionally bombarded with images of gaunt e"celebs" with retarded haircuts and blatantly fake enthusiasm for everything.
>>5457 Even if you were a poorfag, you could always rent magazines or have your friend give you one. That's how it always worked, gaming magazines switched hands after hands. I remember I brought one, a brand new one I just bought, to a summer camp with me and by the time we were going back home it looked like a relic from the 18th century.
>>5465 Not necessarily if you lived in the country, the few people I knew who even had video games mostly just played Pokemon when it was too shitty outside to go play on dirt bikes and didn't really bother with magazines. I did eventually get a couple subscriptions but before that I would stumble into trainwrecks like Superman 64 thinking "oh hey neat a superhero game" completely unaware I was about to have shit thrown in my face. Maybe that's a more specific case than most though I don't know life in general was very different before widespread internet it's like we're on another planet compared to back then.
Come to think of it Superman 64 was one of my first experiences with the character, it's probably why I fucking hate him.
>>5472 I never lived in a country so it's hard for me to imagine the concept of nobody having a gaming magazine. >I would stumble into trainwrecks like Superman 64 thinking "oh hey neat a superhero game" Yeah that sucks but there was also some excitement in that wild unpredictability of what you get.

>over 80 huge levels
>>5478 Oh don't get me wrong I had way more fun times than shitty ones. >it's hard for me to imagine the concept of nobody having a gaming magazine Well the area I lived in was pretty remote. The rental store my parents would take me to when they felt like treating me was around a 40 minute drive away in a town that only existed because it was near an interstate. >>5483 I bet they were considering every individual star its own "level" when they wrote that. It's one hell of a lie either way lol
>>5487 Damn anon, you lived in some real boonies.
>>5388 So true. Dubs confirm.

>the last time I was truly impressed with a video game other times I was almost as impressed was how Assetto corsa simulated the giulia GTA, and when laserdisc arcades came out (but they had limited playability). Oh and ragdolls that I first saw on the very fine free FPS sauerbraten.

>>7876 Back before there were BluRays (or even DVDs AFAICT), there were LaserDiscs. These were 12" platters somewhat similar to two-sided BluRays (usually) encased in a yuge floppy-disk-like housing. These stored animation clips (often hand-drawn as in Dragon's Lair [1][2]) which would provide the cutscene outcomes in a kind of CYOA vidya. 1. http://dragons-lair-project.com/games/pages/dl.asp 2. http://dragons-lair-project.com/games/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-KJUx-L2Wc
