it is SO surreal to see PS1 games where the world isn't shimmering and shaking apart, god https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5oBeO-cui_c
Look at Ridge Racer Type 4 with perspective-correct textures y'all it's beautiful https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dj9qC1sPLW8
Alien Resurrection is one of my favorite formative gaming stories, where several publications tried what would become the defacto way to control FPSs with a controller forever and said "this is terrible"
@ShugoWah these controls make too much sense, BURN THE HERETIC
@ShugoWah it sounds so *bizarre* when you say it like that
@ShugoWah oh my god this is FASCINATING to read
@ShugoWah what a foot-in-mouth statement this turned into huh
@ShugoWah truly terrifying
@ShugoWah what would they have considered sensible, then?
@Felthry Most FPS at the time were doing stuff like.
Move back and forward and turn with left stick/dpad, strafe with the right stick or shoulder buttons or something
@Felthry Or like hold a shoulder button to strafe with the left stick
@ShugoWah Remember similar with Turok on N64, which is basically the same except with C Buttons, and everybody being upset it wasn't the 'Goldeneye' method where you can only walk and look in exactly one direction at a time ever.
@ShugoWah Not saying I didn't have a ton of fun with that game and Perfect Dark for their flaws, but yeah that control scheme is dated and good to be done with.
