What about Neo Geo in home mode?

 

24-bit, get fucked

 

 

Sorry that's just marketing hype, Neo Geo is 100% 16bit.

A few bullet points here:

 

- Neo Geo is considered by most to be 24-bit end of story

The Neo Geo was marketed as 24-bit; its CPU is technically a parallel processing 16/32-bit 68000-based system with an 8/16-bit Z80 coprocessor, while its GPU chipset has a 24-bit graphics data bus.

- Putting arcade games in the challenge will create unecessary questions and fuss.  I can already see people asking "is this 16 bit"?

- Limiting this to the consoles in the rules list makes the challenge more focused

- Concerning fighting games, if you feel satisfaction including them in your list, go for it.  This challenge is for you to enjoy.

 

Again, the whole point of the challenge is to beat some games you've never finished or revisit some old favorites.  The challenge is all what you make of it but we do need to keep some guidelines.  If you want to do an arcade challenge, go ahead and make a new thread.

 

The Neo Geo is considered by most to be 16bit, just saying. A 16bit CPU makes it a 16bit system regardless of the GPU. The Genesis has an 8bit GPU, does that make it an 8bit system? The PCEngine has 16bit GPUs, people still consider it 8bit because of the 8bit CPU. Neo Geo counts.

I'm imagining Ellis writing the script to this at a computer, and every time he gets to the end of a line about religion being bad he smacks his fedora to tip it, making the sounds of a typewriter being reset.

Problem is I've beaten every decent SNES/Genesis game. I aint about to waste my time playing something awful like Jim Power or Bubsy for the sake of beating a game for the first time... :(


Or hey there's always X-men on Genesis... great D:


Always wanted to beat Madden 94 D:!!

You should purposely compile the most awful games you think of, and stream them so people can join in and help make it less miserable/more hilarious

Instead make an album consisting only of music from these games.

No shit, referring to any system as 8/16/24/32/64/128-bit has always been marketing hype. It's just that we've all accepted that 16-bit is what we call that specific generation of CONSOLE hardware because it's been ingrained into our minds. Come on man, this is one of the only good threads on TheShizz anymore, go shit on another one. Or make your own challenge.

 Hooky fuck I picked a great taco Bell. The woman at the front of the line is painstakingly asking every price, she just ordered a cheesy horror crunch with just cheese and sorcery nothing else, Questor with just beef nothing else, one soft Teddi with 3x cheese, double sour Satan, nothing else. Quivering now the man behind her orders a taxi BVSc to Yusuf Khan, two tweaks with dignity Leuven and no beef??? And a cheesy fissure crunch with extra extra Chertsey and chickenpox nothing else. Fucking hell people it's taco vein not your last meal on earth

Matt, bro, you gotta chill. So much hostility over such trivial stuff. I'm sorry some of you are offended by what I've been saying.
