I'm going to party up with the above post and go the other way from what I suppose is more typical for a thread like this on a PC centric community in 2024, what with your Cyberpunks and your Horizons and such, and instead list a list a title from decades ago on a console. Same series as the above post, even, just a title newer; Final Fantasy IX. It's on the PC now too as of 2017, but I still have my original copy from 2001!



I like to replay through this title every so often (like no longer than at least every couple/few years between playthroughs) and it's been a while since I last did. I don't think this will ever not be my favorite game of all time.

I was debating between emulating my original PlayStation copy or playing the Steam copy with the Moguri mod. The last time I played the PC version it was in a far different state, so I almost went with the latter to experience it, but I decided to go with the reliable original. I just wish I still had a CRT around because the original version sort of needs one of those to shine, and the PC version with the Moguri mod fixes some of that but then also has its drawbacks. Those low resolution, pre-rendered background games really just suffered from the jump to widescreen and HD. *sigh* Maybe we'll see that remake some day, but I'll always enjoy this one regardless of which version I play! I told myself I'll see what the Moguri mod offers next time around.

At first I thought you meant the Final Fantasy VII remake and was going to ask what your opinion of it was, but then I realized VIII does have the remaster. It's next in line behind IX in deserving a remake. Black sheep of the series nothing; I loved it! The story really does get... confusing at the end, but it never stops me from enjoying it. Ultimecia was definitely tough the first time I played it! I had more trouble with her than the final bosses in VII, IX, X, or X-2, but I also didn't understand VIII's mechanics as well either at the time. It can be easily abused if you know what you're doing but I guess that applies to most of them. Leveling up in that one is... often counter productive. As someone who likes to spend extra time grinding to get stronger, that worked against me, haha.

One of the best games ever and top3 of the best PS1 games. Gotta admit thought that I love the PAL covers of FF games more. ;)

I had to look it up, and on the front, it seems to be more reminiscent of the older titles in that it just has the title on a near full White background on the front, and the "side bar" is across the bottom instead. I could certainly live with that, but I think I prefer the art work on the one I have too. What I definitely like better on the PAL one (unless this is an original release versus Greatest Hits/Platinum change) is the back though.

Something I never thought of, but with PAL being 50 Hz/FPS and LCDs unifying things to 60 Hz, does that have any undesired effects on those older games?

I'm just glad that I kept my original release copy. The more common one is the Greatest Hits version with the Green label, but it's not like its rare or expensive to find in either version these days. I'm still glad I kept mine though. It's not about monetary value; it's about sentiment, or personal value. At one point in the late 2000s/early 2010s when I was getting rid of most of my other physical media, I made the choice to keep it.

It's just a shame what happened with the strategy guide for this game. Maybe I should try and pick it up some day before it gets truly rare (or maybe it already is) since I also have the art of Final Fantasy IX book and I could add that obscure strategy guide to it. I don't usually have a big tie to material things in this digital age, but those two possessions I cherish.

Abzu, another Matt Nava and Austin Wintory masterpiece. I'm not sure how did I missed this one, as Journey was incredible as well. Thanks to Epic freebies, and Heroic launcher the time has come. Can't remember when was the last time I had such a visual and audible experience. Did a few screenshots, but my senses were kinda overwhelmed to properly capture each of the chapters while playing.

Got Lionheart and junctioned up correctly?I forgot what magic it is but cast the magic to allow you to use limit break, then auto guard for magic+physical def enabled with junction and then limit break, heal and repeat until Ultimecia is KO'ed.

Sounds like you have handicapped yourself slightly but it should be doable if you have junctioned your chars correctly.

I have so many top-tier PC games which I can play, but of all the games I have, I lately keep coming back to Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex! :laugh:

But seriously, the PCSX2 emulator is freaking sweet. I've been messing around with the nightly version, and also DuckStation for my PS1 games, and RPCS3 for PS3. All these emulators have come along leaps and bounds since I last looked at them.

It's been ages since I finished Final Fantasy VIII and I think I may have only done it twice, and I never learned the mechanics of that game so I'm afraid I wouldn't know what to suggest offhand.

Other than checking your junctions as suggested, which would have the most effect on how easy/hard this is, I remember relying on Carbuncle a lot for portions of the last boss. I can't remember why. I looked it up just know thinking maybe it casts regen or something, but nope, it's reflect. So apparently that helped me. It may not be the best way to do it so take what I'm saying with skepticism. There's often multiple ways to beat most enemies and some of them are more "beating your head against the wall" than others and maybe my approach was like that. I just remember this being a big help with however I was approaching the battle at the time.

My PC is too old to run RPCS3 :/
I have the PS3 era nostalgia this times, replaying many games on PC, but some aren't available : 3D Dot Game Hero, Lollipop Chainsaw etc ...

well a 7th gen i7 is still a decent chip (may not be the most powerful one) but should do the job even in current era if you're targeting 1080p 60fps. I have a 10th gen i3 which similar to your cpu performance and i am quite impressed the performance it provides for the budget which runs rpcs3 fine in some games but yeah you would struggle to get even stable 20-30fps in most titles. Haven't been emulating on my pc for years now (except ps3 one which i tuned into for a playing some uncharted 3 recently) so my pcsx2 and psx emulator both are outdated too

Started playing The Pathless. Amazing game mechanics, graphics and music, small yet incredible details. What can I say, :love: Giant Squid. Looking forward to Sword of the Sea.

Haven't been emulating on my pc for years now (except ps3 one which i tuned into for a playing some uncharted 3 recently) so my pcsx2 and psx emulator both are outdated too
Yeah, I uh... have no idea what you're talking about! Apparently mine was stuff I lasted updated around 2008 and even with the most up to date version of it now, I was facing some issues. Apparently development on PlayStation emulators really slowed, but that doesn't mean nothing happened in that time because I found a different one and now I'm playing around with CRT shaders and filters and all this other stuff and my tiny mind is getting impressed. Why did nobody tell me CRT shaders came so far along! Last time I looked at this stuff it was like NTSC filters and basic horizontal scanlines and that was it. I never thought I'd find old PlayStation titles look decent on a high resolution, widescreen LCD but here we are.

By Valheim again do you mean terribly pixelated or damnation of sorts.
Wake up, maybe do co-op, on your own server with your own ruleset/settings (3x the crafting mats, sure np!), figure out you're a vampire so you hate the sun and need blood instead of a Viking that needs blood.

Then proceed to build your castle on any place in a huge world map that is free to explore but level gated nonetheless, so not quite so free, and slay bosses to unlock powers.

So, a pretty identical sort of damnation :) But the mechanics that were added to it really hit the spot. Its brilliant, combat is also quite a bit smoother than Valheims'. Plus you can really go to town on your castle decoration and shit. I just figured out that you can have human servants to guard your castle, you can build tombs to raise undead; you can have multi story castles and I'm just in Act 1 yet. Its isometric so feels Diablo-ey but its really just Valheim in a different perspective.

Boss fights are hard, at least, I had some trouble with the fisherman yesterday. And not hard because scaling, but hard because mother of god its chaos and you have to really use the combat perks you get.
