    Default Let's talk about Hack roms

    I really like retro games and I'm always curious about some Hack Roms made from various games. Some are wonderful, others are bad, and there are some that can be considered bizarre.
    Is that you? What do you think of Hack Roms?

    There's some really cool (or at least fun) arcade hacks. Hard to take issue with getting more characters in a KOF game if it's not a total buggy mess. Being a buggy mess can be the problem with some of that stuff, though.

    On the console side of things, some of those Sonic hacks are downright amazing. Most console ROM hacks are just kinda meh, though. Translations are nice. Dig Dug as Pikachu? Ehh...ok. And then it goes down hill.

    I generally like weird joke-hacks that go the extra mile in what they do, such as what Chaos Editions and Games Repainted do.

    That sentence with the translation part reminded me of the Sonic fan called Windii and her fantastic JPN Sonic translations. Anyways, my favourite hacks are the ones where you get to mess around with the gameplay, lifebars and etc.

    In my country everyone has been aware of KOF 2002, A KOF Title i liked to play as a kid (Pure nostalgia).
    There are hack rom versions of it such as the Magic Plus 2 one.

    It's amazing how people can reshape old games into whole new games. My favorite examples are SM64:Last Impact and 100 Rooms of Enemies.

    Some are necessary (like bugfixes), others are cool (like the ones who change the game to make it like a new game in the franchise) and others are... I don't know honestly, sometimes I like joke romhacks, but most of the old ones where just edgy kids doing racist and/or sexist jokes on mario games and such.


    Overall, I like them (well, not the racist ones lol).

    I like them a lot, my favorite being the FFT 1.3 romhack. But aside from the ones that change the game, I really like the ones that translate games that weren't released in my region so that I could potentially play them (Front Mission 5 for example). So long as the original isn't lost, I think there's definitely a welcome place for romhacks.
