RE/SET: 100 SNES Games for your RetroPie



  • https://thingsiplay.game.blog/100-snes-games/

    Document about 100 games to play on your SNES emulator, with a magazine inspired layout. Each game have its own small description, images and weblinks. Plus a few goodies pages. If you are like me and read the magazines in the old days, then you probably gonna like it. The PDF contains 66 pages. I hope you like it and I invite you to share it with others. This is how it looks like:

  • Awesome project! Now I really want to play the Super Metroid/Zelda mixup crossover...



  • Downloading right now - very nice, thank you!



  • Excellent job :) thanks!



  • @thelostsoul This is quality work. I just did a quick run through and will spend a lot of time reading this thoroughly in the coming weeks.

    Thank you for this!



  • @thelostsoul Thank you for putting this together - missed it when you posted it, but @ClassicGMR 's reply resurfaced the post.

    Read through it and it was a really nice list - will likely refer back to it! I was happy to see Magical Pop'n there, as well as Hagane and Final Fight 3 with the mention to the bot as the second player, and to find some other recommendations I didn't have on my list.

    Great job, and congratulations! Thanks for sharing :)



  • WOW !!!Amazing
    Thanks



  • I am glad you guys take it this positively. One thing I want to mention is, the document have a table of content in the PDF structure, like shown here: http://i.imgur.com/0dt22BO.png. You might need to enable this in your PDF application maybe. It is good for jumping around to specific points of interest very quickly. - enjoy.

    @VictimRLSH I can highly recommend, if you are fan of both games, this is the ultimate experience. :D I have only tried it out half an hour or so, to make sure it works well with RetroPie. The random nature itself makes it unpredictable anyway, but switching from one game to another is something else you probably never experience in any other romhack again. At least I don't know anything similar.

    @pjft I am curious to what new games you will try out. Is there something you already have in mind? Did you playthrough Magical Pop'n? And what genre would you put it into? With certain games I had a hard time to decide where to put it in.

    Everyone, thank you for the replies and take care yourself.



  • @thelostsoul well, I have a weird relationship with actually "playing" games these days, as I don't have a lot of free time and as such I tend to collect the games and add to my backlog for future reference. I know that I likely will never have the time to actually make progress in the backlog, but it's good to keep the dream alive :D

    A few years back, when I first started with RetroPie - and I had a bit more time - I started playing Chrono Trigger, and I think I made it about 20h in or something, but then ended up losing track of it, so even though you have a lot of great recommendations for RPGs and long games there - and most of them I already have on my setup - I likely won't start any, any time soon.

    Games I didn't have on my RetroPie that I'll be looking into:

    • Gokujou Parodius / Fantastic Journey: I don't think I have this one, and since I like this kind of games I'll be getting it.
    • Front Mission / Gun Hazard: you sold me with the cheat for co-op. These days, with the kids, I tend to look for multiplayer games. I had been playing Super Bomberman 3 with them in the last few weeks.
    • Fire Emblem: I might have this but this English title doesn't ring a bell.
    • Super Famicom Wars: I don't think I have this and I like the Advance Wars series, so that's a no-brainer.
    • Majyuuou / King of Demons: I don't think I have this one, but the description and screenshot are interesting enough for me to take a look!
    • Nightmare Busters: Side scrolling co-op run and gun? Sign me up.
    • Super Boss Gaiden: I had read about this a long time ago, and I don't think I have it so I should probably get it.

    Games that I had and might bring forward on my backlog:

    • R-Type 3: I loved R-Type 1 back in the day, but never played any of the others. This one looks nice, and I might try it out one of these days, especially as it's not a bit time commitment!
    • Wild Guns: I tried it out once and enjoyed it a fair bit! Felt like Cabal, but a bit harder. Last week I actually ran into Wild Guns Reloaded online and thought I should play this again. This must be a sign. :)
    • Hagane: I know I mentioned it but the truth is that I never played it. I loved Strider back in the day, and the whenever I am browsing and see the video I always think "I should play this one day", so I suppose I should play this one day, really :D
    • Final Fight 3: I had forgotten about the CPU playing as P2. I played this 15-20 years ago (memory is a bit hazy), and I did have a blast with that feature!

    As for Magical Pop'n, I played it two or three times, I do get to the second or third level, but I don't have the time for long play sessions these days. It plays great, it is kind of fun, it has really nice sprite work and animations so it's always a game I have on my list of "games I probably should play because I think I'd enjoy but I don't have time".

    The other part I enjoyed the most was the one on Romhacks, but I end up losing the motivation to get them. Actually patching the different ROMs, scraping the info, screenshots, videos, descriptions... it kind of dissuades me from doing it. But there's several good ones, especially on the Zelda, Mario and Metroid front.

    So that's it from me - thank you again!

    I couldn't agree more, you perfectly described my current state.^^
    Some notes from my sides. The listed Parodius is the second game on the SNES. There is a third one is Jikkyō Oshaberi Parodius and the only one exclusive to SNES. I really really did want to include this game instead, but it did not run well on (very slow) my Raspberry Pi 3 back then. I hope this makes your backlog even more frightening. :D
    Gun Hazard is a single player game most of the time. Only when you have a second companion at times, s/he can control it. So, don't put this game too high on your list of multiplayer games. There are 3 Fire Emblem games on the SNES. And sometimes you only read the Japanese title, so you might have the game already, but not with the translated titled.

    Regarding the Romhacks, I enjoy them too. It is like playing a DLC for these old games, so cool. The manual scraping part is a bit annoying and the reason why I really think twice which games to include. At least this translates automatically into a curated list. I already have a few such scraped infos and should upload them someday. Actually a good idea.



  • @thelostsoul

    It could be interesting to add the average time to beat the game with a hyperlink or a reference to https://howlongtobeat.com

    For exemple 5 hours for ActRaiser
    https://howlongtobeat.com/game?id=191

    This is not a criticism, because your document is already wonderful !!



  • @DTEAM This is actually a good idea. The "rating" link (average user rating) from gamefaqs.gamespot.com include an average playtime (14h for ActRaiser). I thought about to include this one. But the actual time to beat (the webpage you linked) is also very interesting.

    I already discovered "bugs" in the document and may make an update. In example the text for Batman Returns is wrong. This happened when I moved the games. I think the playtime or time to beat or both are really cool to know and will be integrated directly to the page somehow. But only if for most games are such an information available.
    Should I just update the document silently? Sadly many people downloaded have the wrong one and most probably won't know the new version.



  • @thelostsoul You should create a revision like : RESET-100 SNES Games Quality_rev1


  • Global Moderator

    Gradius 3 has recently been 'patched' to remove the severe slowdowns in game - see https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2019/05/28. The authors's work has sparked the interesed in similar 'patches' for othe SNES titles, like Megaman X or Contra III.



  • @mitu Yes, I am aware of it (found out just recently) and already listed them on another blog post about romhacks. I knew of Gradius 3 and Contra 3 patch, but didn't know about Mega Man X. But I won't add or change any game, because the way the document is organized would require to change a lot of things associated with it.



  • Is this the second player bot? :p

    @Kellanx said in RE/SET: 100 SNES Games for your RetroPie:

    Read via it and it used to be a simply pleasant list - will probable refer returned to it! I used to be completely satisfied to see Magical Pop'n there, as properly as Hagane and Final Fight three with the point out to the bot as the 2d player, and to discover some different hints I did not have on my list.

  • @thelostsoul does look like a poor implementation of one:)



  • @thelostsoul this is fantastic! Thank you for this.



  • This is great! Thanks for putting it together! Do you think you'll create one for other systems like Sega Genesis/Mega Drive?



  • @obsidianspider No, at least not at the moment. The biggest problem is how time consuming it is to write the little essays and to read reviews and watch videos about the games (especially with language difficulties). I would love to do it, maybe in the future, maybe not in the scale.
