Any addicted to games with upgrading elements in it?
#1
If we all take a quick look at the past games were quite different before, if u think about it most didn’t even feature any sort of upgrade "system" or rank progression, but time changes along with games, now virtually speaking every single game on the market has some sort of upgrades built-in and is pure fun, I can't argue u on that, anyway I don't wanna get into much details over this I'll leave it for another time, the rest is just history and I feel like I'm missing my point here Lol 
My question is, what's your typical game with RPG elements where you can buy a better armor or weapons and then, you know.. upgrade it?? I wonder if anyone knows of some simpler games with RPG elements like Terraria, Dex or maybe Jets'n'Guns, that was a side scrolling shooter where you'd get more cool stuff as you progress, oh man I had a lot of fun with that game.

I've tried many other games but they were either too boring or too " already seen this" and I was like please more! No but seriously guys I really enjoy these games. The only problem I have is that I feel there's not enough of them :c

And now, I'll leave you with a ridiculously funny meme, enjoy Big Grin

One classic game that was around back in the day I've played on emulators like Mame and Kega Fusion was Forgotten Worlds. It's a one or two player game. You can buy weapons at shops. There's bosses of course and tons of enemies like all shooter games but your'e not in a ship you're human and hovering in the sky. It's ez to beat.

++, completely agree
for being an arcade, Forgotten Worlds imo fit perfectly here, a great arsenal of weapons to choose from Smile
Black Tiger has something similar, but less efficient.
Wonderboy serie too is great from this point of view

in general (adding the million rpg/jrpg i have played), i prefer when every weapon has pro/cons versus particular enemies, i dont like when its only a 'throw the old, grab the new' matter...

@Nux a couple of months ago i have played Black Paradox on pc, its a recent indie shmup with an imo efficient upgrade system

Hellgate London - lots of classes, armors, weapons and upgrades. Expansive world where you can build your own gear through a unique crafting system.

All "SNOWBLIND Engine" Games have "Shops"
PS2
Champions of Norrath
Fallout Brotherhood of Steel
Baldurs Gate Dark Alliance I & II
and a few more - Google "Snowblind Engine" to find a list of games

Titan Quest on PC, sorta like Diablo but Ancient Greece - Good fun
#7
Ratchet and Clank Series
GTA Series
GOD OF WAR Series
Far Cry Series
To name a few

I prefer games that make you go well out of your way to improve equipment significantly, or get specific items or skills. Plot-progression-locking is terrible in most cases. I hate "you have to get to chapter 5 to open these kinds of doors", but like "you have to go to this place and complete these challenges to get this optional key which opens these doors, but you can play through the game without doing so". Problem is, publishers run the show now, and won't let decent developers spend time on stuff the lowest common denominator will never see. This is why late-game or endgame areas and content tends to be almost nonexistent, compared to early game content.
