Is anyone playing this game? It is free so I started playing it a few days ago and I thought it was stupid, but I kept playing it anyway because my brain told me to and now I think it's pretty enjoyable.

If you haven't played and want a description from me, here it is:

Genshin is like the original Guild Wars with it's mostly single player explorable world, except this game doesn't have multiplayer city hubs, instead there is just a list of players and friends and you can hop in to their world and play with up to 3 other people.

It is visually pleasing, it has a gacha system for unlocking new characters and I guess if you want you could also spend thousands of dollars to get the best gear possible

The quests are alright, there are quests that tell you where to go exactly, quests that tell you the general area to go, and some quests that give you a clue to solve by yourself.

There are life skills in game like mining, cooking, alchemy, forging, and housing.

The combat is a little clunky if you are just playing by yourself but I think it would be fun if you had a full party because it's based on elemental interactions and some characters need to aim which is hard when monsters are running at you.


Ok so that's all I know so far, does anyone want to play? Or maybe there is a jaded veteran here that can tell everyone why it's bad? Well, either or.

>casual exploration game when you've just started
>challenging combat at world level 2
>get stunlocked-killed from full health by elite creeps at world level 3
>strengthening your character requires running all over the world to grind
I know you can lower the world level but fuck Mihoyo and fuck gacha. The worst thing about gacha isn't even the gambling shit but this garbage do the same thing for 20 times until it drops one out of 10 items your characters need to increase level cap then good job, now grind for exp items, skill level up items, weapon items and all the other garbage so you can beat our artifically difficult bosses that manipulates your frustations to pour time and money to our game.

Beautiful world though. No Andrew I won't play with you.

After coming to terms with the shit game design choices I am ragequitting this game again. Was fighting a Primo Geovishap when it gets too far from its spawn area and resets, basically going back to its spawn point and going back to full health. This is a boss that has a special cave arena built for him. Why the fuck would you make the resets zone smaller than the arena? This is a difficult boss too with shitty attack designs that has long range and practically no iframes. I wasted a lot of recovery food getting it down to half health (I suck) and it just fucking resets? Plenty of other bugs and QOL problems that could be easily solved but didn't for some reasons. Fucking pajeet tier codemonkeys. The game design choices and PR teams are abysmal but the programmer teams are underrated in their incompetence. Holy shit, please someone mildly competent make a Genshin clone already.

Currently playing 1 and plan to play 2 afterwards, they seem very short so it shouldn't get boring.

I also tried the P.T. like Visage, which is said to be good but eh I am tired already of walking in circles like a snail, got stuck a few times before the scares start and using a guide for horror-games seems wrong.

The first big one being, how many games do you finish a year? This is the one I really want an answer to. Getting some answers/feedback to all the others provided below would also be appreciated.

How long is your backlog? Does it feel like a burden to you & do you chastise yourself for not clearing more games that you have on the back burner? Are you like me and is it an obsessive matter that you can't shake even if you want to? Do you find anhedonia makes finishing games or working through your backlog immensely difficult? Do you even bother with a backlog?

Do you feel as if time is running out, either with your current life situation, or with society at large, and you'll never get around to playing certain games you might really enjoy? Do you ever procrastinate playing these sorts of games, even if you know you'll probably enjoy them, merely because it feels like too much effort?

Do you still enjoy gaming? Do you bother to play a lot of different games, or do you just stick to a couple old reliables & don't bother with the rest? What about the classics? Have you played them all? Do you even want to play them all? If not, don't you feel like you're missing out? Is FOMO a concern when gaming for you? Is FOMO a concern in other forms of media, like films or anime or whatever else?

Do you ever have the need to prove yourself when gaming? Does a sense of pride or validation from straining yourself ever factor into how effectively you're able to enjoy yourself? Do you care about how well you do, even if it's in a non-competitive experience like a single player game? Are you like me and, at least in a subtle way, push yourself so you can meet your own standards and therefore feel better than other people because of how good you think you are?

Do you find your skills degrading as time goes on? Are there certain genres, or games, that you simply couldn't see yourself as playing anymore?

Did you ever waste a lot of time playing stuff you didn't enjoy? Do you still find yourself doing this? If so, do you feel as if that has partially hindered your ability to derive satisfaction from the past time? Do you feel anhedonia is inevitable? If so, do you feel as if anhedonia becomes a new normal & that it will forever hang over you like a dark rain cloud, even outside of gaming?

>finish a year
2 maybe
>backlog
around 40 right now.
i don't really get mad at myself, i just play whatever i feel like.
>too much effort
no
the only game i feel i don't have time for anymore is WoW Classic, and it's because i literally don't. it's a full-time job, and i already have a part-time job IRL.
>do you still enjoy gaming
no. it's just the best cope there is, the most time consuming cope. it lets you be completely somewhere else for dozens of hours. it's better than being unconscious on heroin or dead, but i don't enjoy it.
>prove yourself
sometimes. i played rainbow six siege for years and never improved. it was a big blow to my ego. i misread even the most basic situations and get paralyzed sometimes not knowing what to do next.
dumb mexican kids are so good that they play the game professionally, yet i play for 4 years and still stress the casual matches haha.
>pride from straining yourself
i do feel pride from my WoW Classic characters. it's easier to be proud of what you've accomplished in WoW since it's actually primarily just time sunk, rather than skill or reflex. anybody can be "good" at WoW, being "good" at WoW just means you've devoted 10,000 hours to the game.
which i have.
and i feel good about that.
>skills degrading
no i've always been shit forever and stay the same level of shit.
>play stuff you don't enjoy
fuck no. 90% of my Steam library is uninstalled and will stay that way.

as far as games i want to finish? at this point i think its just ds2, pathologic and persona 5. i do get anxious about finishing games, and rarely have a long backlog
>Do you feel as if time is running out, either with your current life situation, or with society at large, and you'll never get around to playing certain games you might really enjoy?

yep. probably going to slow down on vidya once i get a job in the field im studying. so i feel like if i want to get a certain level of accomplishment i need to get it in 1-2 years.
>Do you still enjoy gaming?
yes. i dont get the new rush of playing a new game anymore though
> Do you bother to play a lot of different games, or do you just stick to a couple old reliables & don't bother with the rest? What about the classics? Have you played them all? Do you even want to play them all?
i've played most classics besides fighting classics, mmos and some console exclusives. these days i mostly stick to league aram
>If not, don't you feel like you're missing out? Is FOMO a concern when gaming for you? Is FOMO a concern in other forms of media, like films or anime or whatever else?
not really. only when people sing praises about games that were big that i know fuck all about

2013 is the year gaming in the west died. The shitty business practices of lootcrates and paywalls became common place, low effort quirky indie games became popular. And the government/whatever boogieman you fear, finally after nearly 3 decades of constant shitting on and denouncing of video games realized that they can shill propaganda through this medium of entertainment. Every game since has been infected by this, vidya became fully mainstream. You can argue that it became mainstream much earlier but 2013 is when it began to come full circle. Whats even worse is they are pressuring the east to conform to western standards. We have seen the glory days of vidya for sure. Its only more downhill from here.

For me it's always been Tekken 6.

It was the last game I've ever felt any hype for, the last one I was truly excited for.
Back in college 2008, back when I still had friends, we used to meet up after school at the nearest arcades, then we started meeting up at the arcades early every weekend, when the game came out for consoles 2009 I was the one of the first of us to have a copy.
We started skipping class and going back and forth to my place mid-day to play.
I've had a lot of memories tied to this game so to speak, but after this I've never been as engaged and excited for a game since, the last game I was excited over was Kingdom Hearts 2 with my cousins and classmate.

Sure I can still sit down and enjoy newer games, I can still spend hours on end on older games, but this game marks the end of an era for me in games, it reminds me that I'm no longer part of the demographic that developers make games for; that I'm no longer a part of the target audience.

I don't think there was a fixed "point" where games went to shit. It was more of a natural progression to me.

Somewhere between the time tech got developed enough to make good games and the time corporations and SJWs took over the medium was, in my opinion, the golden age of gaming. So somewhere broadly between 2002-2016. I'd have to write a gaming list for a specific date, though I'm leaning towards 2011 or so being the peak.

that was the golden age for me to. Gaming has been mostly been old competitive games for me since then.

Over the last few days I've been reading up on World of warcraft drama. Different guilds which fell apart (often due to succubi) and how various guilds fell from grace and disbanded. It reminded me of a time when guilds were a thing and people made friends with randoms in game and adventured together. It's made me wonder if any games exist today which still have a social aspect at all. Has discord destroyed in game communities and text chat to the point where it's possible?

This. Single player games are where it's at. Everything else becomes an imitation of how horrid real life is.

Any wargames with good communities?

 No.55150

One thing I've learned in the past 6 years or so is that online communities are mostly harmful and the Internet in its currrent form offers little more than dead weight on the soul, especially now that useful places like wikipedia are being scrubbed. Look at the monstrosities that materialize in the real world as a result of the psychological contagions these communities incubate. They're like portals to the realm of lunatic elder gods who wave their tentacles and turn real human beings into raving mutant insects, unfit to live anymore in reality. All these words are fake, constitute a shroud between you and reality and the Internet is just so many words and illusions.

I've started to feel like playing games are a choir now for the past 2 or 3 years. Downloaded Day of Defeat: Source again to play a little but I know I'll eventually get tired of it. After that, I'll enter another cycle of finding a videogame that fills the void inside of me that reminds me that I'm that my hobbies I've enjoyed as a kid and a young teenager have passed. I think what I'm trying to say is how to do you deal with this situation and is it really possible to find other hobbies if you have the attention span of a gerbil.
Wasnt sure if I should have posted here on this board but if mods want to move it to the other board it's fine.

Just play what you like, even if you've played it before. I still play bejeweled, tetris, mahjong, solitaire, I play some mobile games but not a whole lot, cod mobile, osrs, I tried league of legends but was never really into that. I still play games on my old consoles, monster hunter on my 3ds, castlevania dracula x chronicles on psp, all the ds castlevanias. Right now I'm playing through the mass effect trilogy on my ps3, I also play oblivion occasionally on there, demon's souls, I played fable 2 on 360 not too long ago. Basically all the games I enjoyed growing up I still enjoy, and there's so many that I did enjoy I can easily pick up anything I feel like playing from a variety of genres, just sticking to what I already know I like. Any time I try something new I'm like I don't care about video games that much anymore, or I must not enjoy them since I'm older, but all I have to do is play old games I'm familiar with and I go back to having fun with video games again.
