Metroid Prime. That game is still perfect to this day, along with the second one.

Basically anything on the NES was instantly atmospheric because of the limited sound chip, graphic style, and the exotic charm that came with the creativity mustered for each.

For more on this, check out a thread I created over on the NES board last year: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/916386-nes/68440917


the AVGN would say otherwise
I don't know what an AVGN is. But I provided a link in my post.

Drakkhen on SNES. The Day to Night cycle with the constellations coming to life. Gives me chills. I know most people hate the game, but I enjoy it immensely.

well, the AVGN was is a famous critic that plays bad games, usually from the NES-SNES era

I think what he means to say is that there are a lot of horrible NES games, and some of them don't create an good atmosphere, Action 52 for example

I mean, just like now, good NES games might have had a good atmosphere, and bad games might have not

IMO, it's a feeling for when you feel completely immersed in a gaming world

which on paper should be hard to do, since the setting is usually fabricated and fictional, and at the end of the end your just a person with a controller moving around a person in the game

I think it's similar to catharsis (feeling what the characters in the game might feel)

nintendo never said "open world". during the announcement they cautiously skated around using the term. stop feeling let down by your misconceptions.

Final Fantasy X

Every time I visit Spira I feel engrossed in a completely different world. Everything about Spira is painstakingly detailed and makes it come alive.

It's "I couldn't care less" NOT "I could care less"!! Why do 90% of English speakers get this wrong?

Oh I see. Up-and-coming videogame developers could still learn a thing or two from the NES, though, regarding the hard-working and imaginative aspect of crafting a game with atmosphere that is immersing without relying solely on graphics power or voiceover technology to do it with.

I wish we could get new NES/SNES games today, but with a newschool twist and a touch of today's CPU power, etc. If you read the people's responses in that link, you'll find some really good points.
