Why are boomers like this?

Why are boomers like this? Who the frick finds it fun to repeat 15 minutes of gameplay you've already learned just to get a 5 second attempt at some new difficult section?

This game design literally only existed because it was meant to draw out a 30 minute game over the span of many months to keep little timmy happy until his next birthday or christmas. It's completely obsolete now.

        it's not breaking the rules if the rules have changed.
        I think someone using new QoL features to cheese difficult parts obviously takes a lot of the difficulty away, but who the FRICK cares if other people are playing their single-player games on easy mode

    He isn't wrong. You may say you finished the game but you certainly didn't beat it.

        Nah your post is. Making moronic wiener sucking analogies isn't going to convince anyone that cheating counts as beating.

        If you're sucking some artificial wiener, it's very gay but you could just be very horny.
        It's not until you actually seek out to suck a real wiener that you're gay.

        it comes from arcade quarter muncher design. even if this is the case its not like the games are impossible anyway, all of the games you think are "the hardest games" are completable without losing a credit. using shit like save states or rewind(save states) is cheating and you're ruining it for yourself by doing that

          That's a pretty unreasonable expectation for a new player though and ultimately the complaint isn't that the game is impossible to beat but that it wastes your time when you frick up by making you repeat large sections to get back to the one area you had difficulty with.

            If that were the case then you should have no trouble beating the game legitimately in one go from start to end after you "beat" it using save states. You however know it doesn't work out that way. The difficulty is in completing a gauntlet of obstacles without exhausting your health or falling or whatever, if you remove the attrition aspect you are taking out a portion of the difficulty. Use save states to practice all you want but at the end of the day, if you can't beat the game without em, than you can't beat it.

    That's neat and all but why do you feel the need to tell people you were able to beat the game when you needed to cheat?
    Surely if save states aren't cheating then once you learn how to beat the game with them you can easily clear it with the lives and continues the devs provided right? Right?

    I had a blast going through Mega Man 1-10 and Mega Man I-V with save states and rewind. Took me a couple of weeks to beat. That being said, since Mega Man 11 doesn't have those features unless emulated, I still haven't beat it. It's a pretty tough game. Play however the frick you want. Micro Muhtei Mike is a moron.

    I fully agree, I grew up with the games of those days and its dated.
    though tbh I would prefer that to the grind infested MTX ladden shit we get now.

    I remember I could never get past the carpet stage in alladin and years later I emulated it, save scummed it, got past the level then quit the game because it pissed me off it was too difficult.

    the runback affects your mental state and ability to execute the challenge, without it you'll always be at an arguable peak condition
    it's not anything new, it's pic related's entire gimmick, being able to just spawn outside the boss room takes away like 90% of the frustration

      And you can see how after DS2 they realised runbacks were not needed to provide a challenge and were replaced by more mechanically complex bosses, which actually require learning (compared to mindless time-wasting of a runback).

    My guy games were hard because they were meant to keep you spending money at the arcade. And you would continue to attempt because of the sense of accomplishment you got from it and the distinguishment the leaderboards would give. A lot of game devs discuss this point and how older games still had the arcade difficulty design. It wasnt an "experience" but a "challenge."
    So no, you didnt beat the game. You "experienced" the game, but you didnt beat the "challenge."
