How accurate is this?
have modern games lost their soul?
or is it just nostalgia?
what do you think?

OP picture is almost prophetic


shut the hell up. modern games are not made by people who enjoy games. it's made by corporations looking for the best way to make money in their given corner of the market. case and point, no franchise can survive a 3+ continuation without being turned into a corpse filled of shit that would never make sense in a game design but perfectly reasonable by the shallow turds in marketing research. if these people liked games they have to be the most perverted maso in existence to release content that only shows neglect for the medium. pretty much every large scale game in existence that was even half good was developed by coping artists accepting a lower station in life. games suck so much major ass today because there's basically no artists involved in the process, and the ones that are are hired for politics.


Lmao, old geezers whining about how everything sucks nowadays
Naive idealists just dont get that there can be no "soul" what a stupid term in anything, everything is just made to manipulate you, amirigt guys?
Games are just so more complex nowadays, you can bond with your horse, you can dodge and roll in witcher and many much more mindblowing stuff, you just dont get it geezers, and so what if immersive sims are dead? Just get with the times geezers
We have many great games, like witcher, deus ex, mass effect, new vegas, wonderful games, classics, everyone loves them, only you geezers whine that something was lost in the process, some mythical "soul", there is no such silly thing, we all rational human beans, were all here to make money, nothing to be ashamed of
this past decade was such a wonderful time for games, just take off your nostalgia goggles, the future looks bright, i cant wait for that cyberpunk-totally-not-deus-ex-ripoff game, already preordered it, no shame in supporting based devs
Oh this is gonna be such a good decade for games..


I can't tell what point you're trying to make one way or the other

I'm messing around with Mapster32 and .ART editing programs for the fuck of it. I'll probably send a GRP with all the shit in it when I'm done.

Anyone else find this game really relaxing? I feel dumb for enjoying it, but its the best to listen to podcast or audiobooks

I also wanted to ask if anyone knows wheel/pedals that are decently priced and decent quality? I have absolutely no experience buying that sort of thing


I would find it relaxing if every time I tried to play it I wouldn't get stuck on a pole or something and had to start the mission all over again.

Goddamn guys my tastes are really messed up right now. It happened before, I played vidya all my life at some points I was fed up with games, I couldn't bring myself to play anything, I saw them as boring and repetitive. Then after some time (my dopamine receptors recovered) I started playing them again. I have been catching up on games, I have a bunch of them that I can still run on my pc, the newer ones I just stack on an external hard drive. I like the stories, I'm finishing the mass effect trilogy rn, it's really nice. Now I think you all know of the TLOU2 sjw bullshit, I was looking forward to that game and now it's ruined by progressive agenda. After I moved on from this game, I saw on a ps4 sale the Order 1886 and Watch Dogs 2. Then I watched some reviews, showing how the order is short, 7 hours (1/3 cutscenes, 1/3 walking and talking) and shotgunners are op. But I wanted to play a game in that setting with those graphics and killing enemies and creatures with cool weapons. Then I saw how cringe the characters of Watch Dogs 2 are, how shitty the story is and I saw the feminazi antagonist and the masked gamer. But I love the setting, I would have explored SF just like I did with Los Angeles in GTA. I wanted to be creative with hacking and using non lethal approaches. But both games have been ruined for me. I refunded them, I paid 14$ for the Order and 20$ for Watch Dogs. Now I feel empty, sad that I'm missing out on these three games. Oh, and Borderlands 3 is also cringe with its characters but that one wasn't something I was really excited about. So I'm not saying I have no other games, it's just that watching opinions on YouTube over games that I want to play is ruining my enjoyment for vidya in general. Take Dragon Age for example, I like how Inquisition looks (again after watching reviews) but I couldn't finish the second one, because it was so repetitive and the dungeons were recycled over and over again. The first one had such low graphics, clunky movements and poor gameplay I couldn't play more than one hour. Now I know Bioware, I know I have to experience all three games to understand the lore and my choices, but I don't think I can play these two games again. I don't know what to do, I feel so empty. I feel like I'm missing out, but I have a lot of games to play, I have to be somewhat picky. I don't have a lot of time, I'm a wage slave so I can't just "play all of them brah". I bought WD2 on ps4 because I don't think my pc will run it that gPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

for me videogames died when smartphones and mobile games started to become a thing


Just stay away from western bullshit and play Japanese games. playing Xenoblade chronicles definitive right now and plan to play Sakura wars and Utawarerumono after. Also keep playing ff14 and having a ball but its content drought season until july for that game. I also have Phantasy Star online 2 downloaded but had issues running it. Likely won't really get into it until I get through some of these single player games.

I knew the last of us 2 was going to be garbage. The company was already towing the social justice warrior line when the first game came out and they have only been getting more and more drunk on the cool aid since then. I will still play it but only when its fucking $20 or less and used. I never really bought the first one either it came free with my ps4.

Only western game I am really still playing right now is Insurgency Sandstorm on occasion. not saying all western games are bad I know there is a diamond in the rough still be produced with minimal bullshit. But most the shit churned out by big companies is just awful.


What a shit taste


Not going back to the 90s gameplay thanks though


yeah your right its better to play western shit.
Just chop your dick off and become a tranny goy the game. All of them

Hellow dear fellow wizzards.

Im currently looking for someone to play this gem with.
it holds great sentimental value for me as i used to play this game a lot on the SNES with one of my friends i used to have when i was still young (34 of age now)
I reside in the CET time zone (EUROPA) but i dont think time difference should be too much of an issue.
Also if you have anything cool to say about this game please be my guest and share your fond memories


File: 1581699808631.png (543.26 KB, 580x387, 580:387, ClipboardImage.png) ImgOps iqdb

i remember not being able to complete the first dungeon because i couldnt figure it out lol. i also remember the radial menu looked neat as shit, pic for example. back then i was too dumb to complete most rpgs and didnt have a way to look up guides


Great, boyposter has escaped /b/ and is now doing his daily begging for people to play with him on the surface boards too.


I played that game a bit with someone else when I was young (age 30). I got bored of it because the guy was being too competitive if I recall. Like I was stressed into leveling up or something. So I quit. It's on my to-do list for PSX game collecting though. I'm such a bum I have not the space to back up my backups if I get a bunch of PSX ROM's everywhere.

No wait, that was LEGEND OF MANA.

I have Secret of Mana but got stuck after beating that bird thing near the mushroom kingdom. There was a second boss somewhere but I didn't see it.

Also, The Secret of Evermore or whatever I have. It's like the same game dynamics. Then again i found it lame and probably deleted Evermore. Not the right theme though, it's cyber and not magic if I recall the beginning.

There is a sequel also, to this game. It was translated to English but never given to us. It is the third game, the Gameboy game final fantasy adventure was the first, though not very similar.

You should play all three. I got stuck in a wall once in the Gameboy one that is misnamed for the English.

Anyway, was that even two player? The Legend one was, but not the normal RPG one you're talking about, was it? It's single player, yeah?



add me wiz , let's do this.

Shit, I just discovered this thread, is anyone still up for this?

Skies of Arcadia is the most beautiful game ever made. I still remember the breathtaking landscapes and the general ambiance. You really feel that pirate/explorer. No other game I’ve ever played felt so good.

Combat mechanics could have been better (you basically spam the same attacks again and again) but it’s no worse than other JRPG of the time in this area.

I wish they made a sequel. Unfortunately I don’t know how they could. The whole game was based around exploration and by the end of it you explored it entirely.


File: 1591200475036.jpg (66.1 KB, 568x432, 71:54, drachma.jpg) ImgOps iqdb

I never played the original, but I got Skies of Arcadia Legends on Gamecube when it came out and loved it. I really enjoyed the large ship battles, though I'm not sure if those were added for that version or not. If they were just an addition, what a great one . Regular combat wasn't too bad at all for turn-based (something I never minded and even actually kind of like anyway), it was also the first RPG I remember playing that used that "common pool of points to distribute per turn for special moves" system.

Good RPG, would definitely recommend as well. Wish I still had my Gamecube and this game and my old save to just go explore around again now.

I always liked Drachma.


Yes ship battle were already a feature in the Dreamcast version. I never played the GC one but IIRC the only difference is a few more optional bosses in the GC one.

What the fuck is up with videogames these days? It's been almost 10 years and Elder Scrolls 6 hasn't come out. Every where I go people are talking about OLD games like Terraria and Minecraft and Rainbow Six Siege.

I DO live under a rock and don't really like video games anymore, but what the fuck?

What if all the 'good game ideas' have already been 'taken?' Sim City came out 30 years ago, and Sim City 2000 had to compete with it, and then Sim City 3000 had to compete with Sim City and Sim City 2000. Sim City 4 had to compete with Sim City, Sim City 2000, Sim City 3000, Anno 1800, Tropico, and LinCity. Cities Skylines has to compete with Sim City, Sim City 2000, Sim City 300, Sim City 4, LinCity, LinCity-NG, Anno 1800, Tropico 1 through 28, etc., etc.. Of course the pace of new games is going to decrease when it still has to compete with a gamer's time that can choose between a steadily expanding library of old games that only become easier and easier to grab emulated copies for free.

This theory then anticipates that growth of new videogames should be logarithmic. During the initial heyday of the videogame industry, new games were developed at a good, steady pace because the available library of competition was small, and the ideas that had yet to be mined was large. We have reached the opposite state now, and thus it should be entirely expected that new, good video games are few and rare.


>It's been almost 10 years and Elder Scrolls 6 hasn't come out.
This is actually infuriating. I mean, I know that it will be trash almost for certain, but it just annoys me that it's taking so damn long. Maybe there is a slim chance it won't be garbage. I'm so sick of BethFallout trash.


same with music, movies and any other media form


Good point, yup.

Anyone here in the know how about the recent news on The Last of Us 2? What are your thoughts about the recent leaks, as well as the (apparently) shitty work environment that is Naughty Dog? Were you planning on buying the game, and are you still going to? Or have you been practicing gppd wizardry by unspoiling yourselves like good virgins?

And I like what's happening. It's a waste of the medium to make games which present a predetermined experience, relying on primitive techniques of linear storytelling and 'iconic' characters following a script. In extreme cases even counting on recognizable characters to pull a weak script and lacking gameplay along.
Games are interaction first and foremost, everything else is a decoration. Let the facade be discarded, advance the central aspects instead.
Full voice acting, big name celebrities, going for a cinematic feel, grooming the customers and manufacturing hype- it's all expensive and in the end superficial. I'd like to see games focusing more on advanced mechanics and complex interactions between systems of systems, making player agency paramount.
The Last of Us 2 Corporate Boogaloo is a cautionary tale. When you trust a soulless company to craft you a self-contained experience where you're reduced to a role of a spectator-player going through a predetermined story, you ask to be put on rails. Sometimes you might not like where their rails take you. All those disgruntled gamers should stop begging for amusement rides and ask for railway kits instead.


I only used marxist because I was thinking of pic related, but I was wrong though, I don't think the guy presenting is with naughty dog.

>I know what all games should and shouldn't be and have for everybody everywhere
heh, not like I was expecting any better from this thread anyway.


Behead those who insult the primacy of player agency.

To find a decent Android game you have to wade through a sea of shit that is Play Store. So share lesser known Android games that you liked. I got:
Battleheart Legacy - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFZYCumpvCA
An older single player RPG. Great combat and controls, interesting abilities and character builds, beautiful art, runs well on anything, too. The story is a bit short, but there is some endgame in the form of endless wave arena mode where you can get the best gear and try to set records.
League of Berserk - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGtrK7BS8bc
A real time multiplayer dueling game where you basically click on abilities and potions and level your guy. Very repetitive, I found it fun until I hit later levels (25ish?), then it gets extremely grindy. Surprisingly alright community (chat), quite a few players online, though in most duels you fight against bots that use real player profiles. Somewhat p2w but if you spend a lot of time playing it matters less.
Day R - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXf4zbih0Ps
Top-down survival..RPG?. A little similar to Fallout1/2 but more simplistic. You travel from town to town and gather resources, craft items and try not to die. There is an online mode where apparently you can trade and complete quests with other players. Quite repetitive and difficult, I found only the early game fun. No paid items except the insignificant starter premium pack for few dollars.
CSR2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9aYphit-JA
Online drag racing with ridiculously good and smooth graphics and lots of real car models. Beware - it's a heavily pay to win game. The only reason I mention it because you can get a modded .apk with unlimited stuff (that was some Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

would recommend soul knight


Yeah it is legitimately pretty good if you are into that type of game.


Spellweaver is fun if you like TCGs.


>no Mini Warriors
I played it from 2015-2019, but Triniti despite neglecting it has now updated it so my ancient tablet is no longer compatible. Valiant Hearts is a recommended game.
I remember playing NOVA on Facebook briefly way back in the day.

It's not exactly an hidden gem, but there's a rather good riichi mahjong client in English named Mahjong Soul. I remember a thread on mahjong years ago. It has a gacha, but you can ignore it completely as it's only cosmetic. There's been a merging of global and Japanese server and a large influx of new players after a v-tuber promo tournament and some pro players starting to use it, so it might not be as newbie friendly as it was a year ago, but it's still more accessible than tenhou due to it being in English and the more casual player base.
