Do games like this with a high score and limited number lives even exist anymore?
At least he's using a wireless controller.
High score can be popular if you can post it online.
Limited lives are an abomination that have mostly been flung, screaming, into the abyss.
Still, this is an absolutely amazing commercial because it implies some sort of ethical standard.
Ethical standard? They just said that they couldn't WIN the case (and therefore wouldn't get paid).
Yeah but nobody actually games like this anymore. I HAVE ONLY TWO LIVES BUT IT IS ABOUT TO BECOME ALL NINES SO I HAVE WON THE GAME
Nobody does that. Anybody who does is 1) indefinably awful and 2) playing a shitty old game
So... you guys are completely wrong. There's plenty of games that feature limited stock lives and high score chasing as the main attraction. Over the past year I have lost so much sleep playing Geometry Wars 2 on Xbox Live, just because my friends and I would always call everyone else whenever one of us reclaimed the high score - and everybody would be in a screaming frenzy trying to take it back.
We're doing the same within my house on Pac-Man Championship Edition. I managed to hit 300,000 which was one of the top 100 scores of the week - so people have been pissed trying to even come close.
So yes - people still game like this. And yes, if I was actually about to grab a high score and the power went out, I'd be pitching a fit for the next few years about what could've been.
Well I'm not the guy to ask. I never, ever, EVER cared about high score. Not when I was playing on a Commodore, not when I was putzing around in arcades, not when I was squeezing drops of life out of a wheezing X-Box. Never ever.
Because you know what? Fuck that guy. That annoying little goober, you know the one I mean. That guy that shows up at the arcade the second it opens and is there all fucking day. And is thus impossibly good at everything and consequently will always top your high score. Every arcade had That Guy. Now that arcades are dead they have moved on to Halo and probably Gears of War.
See my points above. You're indefinably awful and playing crappy old games. And that includes crappy new games that use the crappy old mechanics of crappy old games. Enjoy your crappy games, Grandpa!

What about your save states?
Playstation doesn't have those. Try MAME.
Playstation doesn't have save states?
And these people say there isn't a case here?
