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.

New games are objectively shit. Zoomers don't really like traditional games, they are addicted to mobile games or hyper competitive PC shooters. The game devs who do make traditional games are captured up in the SJW propaganda machine and are actively trying to make games worse to appease the SJW circlejerk.

Just boomer it up and play games from the 1995-2010 era, or their remakes. I am sure there are still a ton of games from that era that you have yet to experience.

I'm playing the remastered version right now. It stays pretty true to the original. I think, at least. I never played the game in it's prime, but the online portion definitely captures that early 2000s feel.

Anyone of you guys into Pathologic? I played the OG and HD multiple times and I love it's lore and atmosphere. There is nothing that is remotely politically correct. It's all pretty harsh and depressive.

But Pathologic 2 looks like tumblr tbh. Is it worth a buy?

Played it a few year ago, fantastic game, I was depressed at the time and this game really struck. I think the "bad" gameplay and graphics are great because they turn normalfags away.
Got Pathologic 2 last year when it came out but I haven't gotten around to play it.

Any WOW wizzies can give me advice on how to farm gold on WOW? I was looking at buying necromancer expansion on Diablo 3 but its too expensive at 21.95 in Australia. But I've heard you can buy a month of wow in the game using gold and then sell it for real life money in blizzard store so I could get it for almost free, I just have to get enough gold in WOW, problem is I never played it and not experienced at MMO games, any wizzies here got advice if I can get a month of wow time for free doing online surveys and the grind enough gold in a month to buy one token of WOW gold? Or is it simply impossible/too hard to earn from scratch in one month? Just want some advice before I start, so I don't waste my time if it's not possible.

When I play games, I get better than the average player, but when I reach low level competitive levels, I become retarded and can't get better. Its almost like I self-sabotage myself. Also when I lose, all of the bad memories come flooding in and I want to kill myself.

I like single player games as well, but I repeatedly return to online games because sp starts to feel like a waste of time… Its like I'm trapped in a cycle.

I have regressed to a feral, wolfman-like state in which I cannot interact with people outside of my nuclear family except anonymously. I don't play online games at all anymore. Used to love casually raiding in WoW BC but that is a distant memory.

how much do you grind?
in my experience i usually start out around the average player and then after 300-500 hours or so i break into the top 20-5% of players.

there is a big level between good normie players and competitive and you just don't quite make the cut (yet)

 No.54707

it could be your ego OP which prevents you getting better. you feel safe with mediocrity so never try new challenge yourself. you could just be shit at games and a lot of people are but all that countsi s having fun.

what is the point of high level play when you cannot enjoy playing games?

 No.54866

Same but, unlike you, I feel satisfied.
To have competitive level skill you are required to sacrifice fun, no two ways about it. I know there's a different type of enjoyment then, but it's not worth the price - if I don't feel good playing, what's the point?

I was a bit annoyed that I could figure out games like myst without a guide but I had to uses a guide my first playthrough of ICO due to getting hopelessly stuck several times.
That was decades ago though. Now it has been so long since I played a traditional adventure game that the moon logic of it will probably be frustrating but jump puzzles don't even click in my mind as puzzles.

When I was a kid, I was having some trouble with the Pirates of the Caribbean game. Good game. Anyway, I got stuck in this maze towards the end and I couldn't find anything online. Turns out I'm the only one who ever got stuck there. There were fucking arrows on the floor.

I also remember there wasn't a cheat code for money, you just went into the plaintext save file and typed in however much you wanted.

I played Totori and found on the contrary that it was stressful, because of the time limit and the various deadlines for getting things made. There's also a ton of missable content which is not so bad provided you do not obsess over such things. Otherwise you need to follow a good guide thoroughly.
Meruru was more lax, and I believe they toned it down further in the games since then? They do release them on a yearly basis so it's hard to tell if you are not heavily invested in the series, and very intimidating to newcomers.

>There's also a ton of missable content which is not so bad provided you do not obsess over such things
When I play some open world games I used to have the urge to collect every little thing and do every sidemission, which takes forever and is stressful in its own way, the Atelier games punish you if you don't go with the flow and do the main story-stuff before the side-activities I feel, which really worked for me yeah. Because there are so many endings, I do my first playthrough blind to get the normal ending without thinking too much about it, if I really liked the game I will do it a second time with a guide, if not then it was still a relaxing experience.

I think the time-limit is a fun milestone to work towards, for me doing main stuff first usually gave me enough time to synthesize a few teddy bear-pies and do some side-activities afterwards, and even when I try to do everything, it feels good, probably like a fantasy about owning a small bakery and getting lost in the pies you make so you don't notice how fast the days fly by or something.
From the games I played I know they completely removed the time-limit from Shallie, which felt like playing a platformer where it's impossible to die, it was still cool though.

(in my opinion) one of the most timeless games and probably the only good thing besides L4D valve has released. it genuinely makes me sad to see valve neglect it with every update getting smaller and fewer between.

Highly disagree. TF2 was golden in its first few years 07-09. Post 09 it was the well known hatfest, and now its a dying game.

If I have to call a game eternal It would be Age of Empires II. About 20 years old, still going strong have an active community, tourney scene, amateur scene, players still playing. And it is still on internet cafes (if they are still around). I would have counted starcraft too but I think it died down a bit, mostly due to sc2 and then the general decline (maybe not the case in korea).

No other game imho is as timeless as aoe2

But actually, indeed, wrong. Just tested the linux version (which probably is identical to windows one gui wise) and it has the in-game browser too.

>>52677
CS 1.6 have and DoD 1.3 used to have all those things too just couple years back, and the former surely has larger playerbase than AoE2.

Completely different games of course.
