I remember playing NES and SNES growing up. I remember when all you really had to go on was the box art and if your lucky a review in Nintendo power before plunking down $ for a game. Lots of fun hours.

My oldest cousin and I were really close when we were younger. I had a SNES and he had a genesis. As a result we would go to each others house every weekend and sit there and play all the games we didn't own. We played A LOT of Sonic 2 and Super Mario World. Good times good times.

My favorite retro moment was when i was in the "Computerspielemuseum" in Berlin, played Super Mario Bros on a NES and did the Minus World glitch.
I was really happy...

Picking a favorite rero gaming memory is quite a tough one. out of all of them, itd probably be playing DQW monsters 2 on gbc when I was little. (except for the part where I spent a year of my life searching for the brain key cause the king said it was "in another world" not realizing the "other world" wasnt a key world in game, it was in the companion game that i didnt even know existed GAAAAAH)

I have many.. But I enjoyed the days of playing the N64 with my brothers. We got our first one with Vigilante 8, Turok Rage Wars and Pokemon Puzzle League. Rage wars was played nonstop even with the annoying coop bug.

Not sure if it's actually required, but liked and followed as well.

I remember first beating Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Red Rescue Team on the GBA, never in my life before hand had a game made me cry before. It is a game I'll never forget.

NES was the first game console I've ever played. I remember waking up and playing Super Mario Bros. 3 with my dad. All of the games I really enjoyed and it's what got me into gaming today.

My favourite memory would probably be Smash on the nintendo 64, I played that game for hours and hours on end.

Growing up I had a 386 computer, and we had a stack of games on floppy disk. One of my favourite memories was playing Bubble Bobble with my mum on the keyboard. Never got far, but had a blast avoiding the "blue whale" and collecting extra lives and fruit.

Plus, that game collection was the reason I ended up in a computer science class in high school. I learned a ton of DOS commands and how to nagivate computers because of it....

My favorite retro gaming memory would have to be the first time I had ever played Majora's Mask as a kid. The surreal psychedelic experience of the game really stuck with me, so much so that I eventually went back to it when the 3DS remake came out.

    it's better to learn on your own, it goes much faster than the snail pace they teach you at in school

  • Coto @ Coto:
    assembly is actually great, gets you to run everything about 80% faster than C massaged code
    Gift
  • Coto @ Coto:
    assembler syntax is dead easy, but "how to put pieces together" logic requires to have in mind the original idea, and the CPU layout, and that's like double the work of C stuff. It's best to write C first, add some unit tests, then go assembly, then run the unit tests

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    it can run faster than compiled code, but modern compilers are really good at optimization and you need to be even better at assembly to do a better job

  • Coto @ Coto:
    with that all your assembler base will actually work

    even on embedded systems, without a damned debugger

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    syntax is easy but the code is hard to read, you can't look at a piece of code and expect to understand it without looking at all the code around it to see how it all works together so it takes much longer to read the code, it takes longer to write it too because what might be 1 line of code in C might be 20 lines of assembly
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    the language is very simple to understand (because it's barely a language at all) understanding how all the instructions work together to form a whole is another matter, in general it's such a pain to work with that i would never recommend it unless you have a need for it. don't listen to this guy and learn assembly just because you want to make your code run faster, you are wasting your time, but if you run into a situation where your code isn't fast enough even after you enabled -Ofast and you NEED it to be faster, then you can consider assembly

    llshit points as usual you make. Not only because you have no idea what you're talking about, but also because there is proof (both i've seen and maintained) in regards to C and hand-written assembler code, and the speed gain is simply over half the framerate.

    gbaemu4ds's C ARM and THUMB CPU emulator and GBARunner2's ARM and THUMB handcoded assembly. Just run Yoshi's Island GBA and compare it by yourself.

    or SnemulDS's C CPU Core vs SnemulDS SnezziDS ARM core. The first running at about 45% (half the speed) vs ~105% (full speed)
