What are some game modes that no one ever played?

Dungeon Explorer 2 for the Turbografx CD has five-player co-op. To use it you would need a Turbografx, the CD add-on, the TurboTap, four friends with their own Turbografx, or four extra controllers you bought on your own. There is no way this console was popular enough for all those conditions to be met. I'm sure it's been emulated before, but when it came out, no chance. What are some other modes that you're pretty sure never got played by anyone?

    Every sports game had similar features, but I only ever played with up to like two players max.

    probably in japan
    the first game was known enough in the US to get 5 people playing it. the second game had a very limited print run (all the TTI games did, the sytsem was dead in the water at that point)

    The first game was popular enough in America to ensure a Western-exclusive Sega CD sequel. I remember game journos I was reading going crazy about Dungeon Explorer on the Wii VC being a must-buy because they played its 5-player multiplayer back in the day.

    And I don't know what you're on about with this
    >four friends with their own Turbografx
    Turbo didn't have lan play.

      Because you need 5 controllers. Most people didn't keep 4 extra laying around, and no one without a Turbografx is going to have one.

    I wonder how many people played coop in Swords & Serpents on the nes.

    I gotta wonder how many people bothered to play System Shock 2 multiplayer when it came out. It's the exact same as single-player, except there's another player running around. Items don't duplicate, so you have to split your ammo and equipment up, but both players will get cybermodules if either player gets some.
    There's no server list or anything, so anyone looking to play would have had to either been on LAN with the other player, or directly connect by IP. Given there being much more popular FPS type games at the time, and the multiplayer doesn't really add anything to the gameplay, I don't think many people ever played SS2 multiplayer. I did once, but I really wouldn't bother doing it a second time unless I had a friend who really wanted their hand held during the game.

      I had the adapter, which I bought for Socom. I owned this game. I played this game. I enjoyed this game.

      I got the network adapter for Monster Hunter and it ended up being a really good investment, there were a bunch of games like REO that I had a ton of fun with.

      rumor has it the feature works but 16 players is bugged due to some spawn code errors. There's apparently a patch that will fix it but it's not publicly released yet. Heard this from my dad at BPS.

      I did this back in the day, but only with like the first 2 levels. Also did 4 player Pacman VS and completed Four Swords Adventures with 4 people.

    The Link cable mode for PS1 games. In order to make use of it, you would have needed two TV's, two copies of the game you want to play, and two PS1's hooked up with the Link cable going between the PS1's. It was a really cool idea, allowing each player to have a full screen instead of just half. The problem was, how many people owned two PS1's and two TV's hooked up side to side?

      Exceptions apply. Some games that had two discs didn't require you to buy two copies of the game. For example command and conquer red alert. You could put disc1 in your first ps1, and disc2 in your second ps1, and still play multiplayer with just one copy of the game.

      Anyway I think the Saturn Bomberman supported like 12-14 people but no one really played it until YouTube view farming.
      Also rise of the triad supported CTF (it was called capture the triad), might be the first fps game to have this mode, but no one cared or played it. I barely got 2-3 other people playing deathmatch over null modem

        Saturn Bomberman had 10 player battles that need 2 multitaps, and of course 10 controllers. That would have been very difficult to put together at the time. I knew one person who had a Saturn.

          I'm proud to say that I owned a Saturn, two multitaps, and seven controllers. I didn't ever play ten player Bomberman but I did play 7 player, using the special high res mode. I also regularly played the Guardian Heroes PvP mode with 6 players, and 7 player Death Tank.

          Death Tank was a hidden bonus game that could be unlocked by owning any two of the following Saturn games: Quake, Duke Nuke 3D and Powerslave.

          I had all three, which I guess qualifies as being pretty special all on its own.

            Huh? How did that work?

              Death Tank was included as a hidden bonus on all three discs, but you could only play it if you had a save state from one of the other games. At least I think that's how it worked, it was a pretty long fricking time ago when I had a Saturn, and I was smoking a lot of weed at the time.

        I didn't know ROTT had CTF, I knewShadow Warrior did and yeah not many people would have played that. WangBang was amazing though.

        Pretty sure there was evidence of this back in the day, but only at Hudson events.

      similarly, two ps2s and two guncons and two tvs and two copies of time crisis 2. Basically makes your system into the arcade setup, believe you could buy a foot pedal too. Don't forget the s400 cable!

    The idea that the PC-Engine was somehow popular in Japan is a meme. Best seller on the system sold 150k units, as a comparison the best seller on Megadrive was 500k (I don't have to tell that on FC and SFC it's in millions). I don't have sales data for Dungeon Explorer II, probably because it came out so late nobody was tracking sales for the system anymore, but the first game presumably sold 50k in Japan

    With that said OP is a homosexual

      theres only one sales source for the pc engine and it only tracked a few weeks per game. theres also a lot of disrecepancies
      even the turbografx has zero sales figures for games
