I for one, do enjoy your videos on occasion, but it's for the best to put them in one thread. Lightgun game? I approve. That Nyko Cobra is one of the few remaining lightguns eluding me to make a microswitch trigger kit for.

Gotta go 2 over 1 with HOTD. Is the wii port better than the Dreamcast port?

Is there any way to play light gun games with action replay without removing a controller while the system is on?

Thanks for the video on House of the Dead. I might pick up the jp version.

next up : Nosferatu. A super fun game that isn’t Castlevania. Basically like Prince of Persia with Dracula getting involved. Anyone ever play this one?

I kind of like Nosferatu. There are a lot of "cinematic platformers" out there and outside of Prince of Persia (which is excellent) most of them are quite terrible, usually relying on superficial qualities such as atmosphere and world building. But there's something about Nosferatu.

Agreed. Nosferatu tries hard to be more than just a “pretty” game

It’s the controls that can be hard with the “cinematic” part. It always translates to “sluggish” controls

Are you saying Flashback, Another World, and Oddworld are terrible?

Disney's Pocahontas on the Genesis is one of my guilty pleasures and actually pretty okay as far as Prince of Persia clones go. Though you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone else that has played it.

Another World is definitely terrible.
Flashback is interesting (mostly for the same reasons that I mention in your quoted post), but it's also kind of mediocre and really loses its drive in the second half of the game, where the creative setpieces get replaced by tons of generic "alien planet" rooms.
Oddworld is still in my backlog, going on a few decades now. My impression was that it's really more of an adventure/puzzle game than a platformer, but I might be misinformed.

I love Out of This World (the SNES version), Oddworld, Inside, and the original Prince of Persia, myself. None of the other cinematic platformers I've played have been up to their level, though it was nice to revisit Nosferatu with this video.

With the Castlevania comparisons, it's hard not to find Nosferatu's final boss wanting compared to Akumajo's Dracula, who would laugh at any vampire weak enough to be punched out by a normal guy. While I'm not often an advocate for puzzle bosses, one may have been appropriate here, to sell the enemy as being too strong to confront directly.

Oddworld is probably the closest thing to PoP as far as cinematic platformers go — there's a lot of puzzle solving (some of it pretty on the fly), but also tighter requirements on platforming execution than something like Flashback.

I personally think Another World/OOTW is great. Yeah, it's pretty janky at times, but that jank allows for a degree of flexibility in execution that most of the other games mentioned don't allow. I'd also say it's arguably the most cinematic of cinematic platformers; a short focused experience in which every scenario is unique and consistently atmospheric from beginning to end.

While it's more simplistic than Prince of Persia, and more of a fighting game, I also like the original Karateka quite a bit and it has some of the same cinematic flair.

Flashback and OOTW are two solid games for sure. For some reason I was never into Oddworld on the PS1. Munch's Odyssey on the OG Xbox was always a good time though

Nosferatu is one game that definitely flew under my radar. Thanks for the video, awbacon; might give this one a chance when the time is right.

At the same time, those two predicates that you listed are integral to these type of games. Case in point: Prince of Persia excels not only because the game is mechanically solid, but also because it creates the necessary atmosphere that you're trapped in this hellish dungeon and that time is running out for you to save your loved one from the claws of the evil wizard. It wouldn't be the same game without it.

Like others here, I'm also fond of Flashback; the cool sci-fi/action setting and animations being what hooked me into the game way back, although I admit that your criticisms of the game are not without merits, especially regarding the latter parts of the game.

They are, but they often can't carry a game on their own. The design and atmosphere of Another World is simply amazing, but the game gets both repetitive and frustrating to play really fast.

Prince of Persia I feel manages to carry itself almost entirely on the solid puzzle platform element, which is entertaining and satisfying on its own. Of course, the "cinematic" aspect of a "cinematic platformer" isn't unimportant, but in the original versions of that game, it's very subtle, which I think is one of the strengths of the game. The SNES version on the other hand goes all out, and that also suits the game well.

I had to do HotD 2 in my light gun series, as I think it's probably Sega's best light gun game of all time. I'd rank the series 2/1/4/Overkill/3. Ive yet to play Scarlet Dawn so I can't include it. Really need to find a damn machine and play it since no port has been announced yet

Speaking of "cinematic platformers", OnEscapee deserves a mention, if only by virtue of being freeware these days.

Just like the official Another World GBA port, by the way.

Today is week 1 of an eleven week celebration of the Hyper Neo Geo 64. Sure it bombed hard in arcades but it's still absolutely worth checking out as all seven games are decent fun, and a few are downright awesome

Fond memories of this one. Haven't played it since BITD, but that video brings it all back to the forefront of the ol' brain. A firm reminder to stop being such a lazy sob and get a proper lightgun MAME setup going to live the horror lightgun jamboree! About to Beast Buster a nut over here.
