Post in this thread when you drop a game.

I dropped brogue today, roguelikes are cancer and a waste of time.

Picked up Super Mario Galaxy again because I wanted to get all the rest of the stars and see how playing like Luigi was like. Now I understand why I dropped it. All the remaining levels I never beat on my old savefile are timed:

"Catch the bunnies, but you only have 120 seconds."
"Throw these bombs in these precise locations, you have thirty seconds."
"Do this autoscroller, but if you miss one coin you lose the level (so, essentially timed)."
"Race against this ghost."
"Beat this course in 1:30."

I want to just explore the environment, jump around, and platform. I don't want to memorize every fucking input I have to do to finish it in a minute thirty or to not miss a single fucking coin, or to memorize all the hidden buttons on the ground that unlock certain locations–it's a fucking Mario game, I just want to fucking platform, for the love of god.

I played Baldur's Gate expecting to be blown away by what is considered a classic CRPG but it took me until the Friendly Arm Inn until I lost the motivation to continue. Maybe I've just been feeling terrible lately but the game would be dull in any other day. The walking speed is mind-numbingly slow. The combat is stupid. Who the hell thinks putting D&D rules in a video game where everyone keeps missing and a bad dice roll can slaughter everyone as good mechanics? I actually really enjoys Planescape: Torment, it may even be one of my favorite video game of all times but I wouldn't say that it has good gameplay. The only thing that motivates me to play torment is the engaging plot and settings. Torment immediately grasp you from the start by throwing you into an alien world in a mysterious situation. Everything was new as I don't play D&D and I thought planescape has one of the best worldbuilding I've ever seen. Baldur's gate is just a generic fantasy in comparison. Maybe the plot will get more interesting as you progress but the start doesn't suggest it. Well, maybe dropping it at such an early point is not doing the game justice. I may come back to it later, or not. It's so dull I might as well just read a novel or something.

Tried it again, dropped it again. This time I set the max framerate to 60 for faster walking speed and get an 18 strength fighter so I'll miss less. Makes the game more bearable but still boring. Story still sucks. The events in the story feels uneventful. You're supposed to feel bad you got kicked out of home and having your guardian killed but the game doesn't properly build up the emotional attachment. Your whole life and how you're feeling is just dictated by the narrator. Dragon Age Origins manage to stun me in the noble origin story where the castle that I've known for 20 minutes get assaulted. This is just meh. Maybe the main plotline will be developed later but if the game doesn't make me motivated to progress towards it then it has failed. Curiosity on what happens next is the oldest trick in the book to get people to consume your shitty writing and this game can't do that. Followers join your party too easily and for dumb reason, their whole backstories and personalities explained in one or two conversation. Side quests felt like random fetch quest. Oh I lost this item, oh I want you to kill these monsters. It's the same side quest in any other rpg but I don't know what it is about Baldur's gate that makes it more tedious. With planescape, more effort is put into the writing so no quest seems generic. With bethesda games, it just feels good to run, jump and knock things over. Even grindy jrpg has satisfying combat and progression. Baldur's gate feels like someone trying to forcefully recreate a D&D campaign in video game form and it's not even good campaign. It's the most generic shit, like a sample campaign or something.

Does anyone else enjoy playing movie based games? They are usually really short and easy to play, but it feels rewarding beating games so I always liked them. Toy Story 3 is an example of a really good movie game. Most of them are pretty shit though compared to real games. So does anyone have any recommendations for games based on movies?

I've been working on my own web game for 3 months and I need some feedback on it before I advertise it.

Link is http://www.energiz.io

You can play with other wizards on the same server.

Any thoughts/feedback/opinions on the game is appreciated. Or if you encounter any bugs tell me too so I can fix them.

And so the wizard streams thread returns after a long absence. Feel free to plug your own stream here, discuss active streamers and so on. As far as I can tell I'm the only active one currently, https://www.twitch.tv/stream_wizz (yes I just added another z to the old name, I'm not very creative), if I'm missing anyone just let me know and I'll delete and remake the thread.

From the SH series SH 2 got the best music by far. I don't remember anything except for the ending and some areas, and pyramid head, but that's it.

It's considered the best game in the franchise, so yes, it's worth playing.

I'm looking for Youtube channels or just single videos which provide detailed analysis about the story/gameplay/game design/whatever of video games or just interesting theories, facts and other stuff like that. I don't really know how to explain it any better so I'm just gonna link a few examples.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vp4-9G47uF0 (Oblivion analysis)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2X2tiINl-X8 (Nier Automata analysis)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fEj5FsBXFuM (Mass Effect indoctrination theory (there are three parts I believe))

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lk8tsK-FIdE (Pokemon Yellow glitch series)

I also like this guys game design videos
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmY2tPu6TZMqHHNPj2QPwUQ

or pannenkoek2012's SM64 videos.

I just realized I'm being kinda vague here, I'm bascially searching for informative game videos. Any game goes.

I fine the contrast between east and west approaches to the same concept.
In the Japanese game where you become a tentacle monster it is a rpgmaker h-game with vn style tentacle rape scenes and primitive gameplay that was clearly a afterthought.
Meanwhile the western game that is about being a tentacle monster is a metrovania that is purely violence and gameplay no writing.

Any runescape players, in particular OldSchool players around?

Just curious what others think of the game, or what you're up to. I've been working on an account thats 2.1k total levels now and the game is a lil stale, I've never really dabbled in bossing or pvp and I'm mainly just an afker and skiller. Considering making an ironman or something

It's weird that you got banned then especially since you were high lvl. I see obvious lvl 3 bots with rune axes and gibberish names constantly mining shit everyday and nothing seems to get done. Maybe someone with some clout with jagex made up some shit about you? It seems shitty they wont even let you contact them via email.

Any wizzies wanna play this game with me? It went F2P recently and so I just started playing it and got about 20 hours so far since two days ago, it's a nice time waster I guess. We could get a wizguild going again or something if anyone cares.

The Sixth Generation was my most nostalgic generation and its the only generation where I owned every major console Playstation,Gamecube,Dreamcast,and Xbox.

The Xbox was my favorite of the four and I was wondering if anyone else here has memories of or still owns this console.
I would also like to know your favorite games on the console.

My list would be:
1. BattleFront 2
2. Halo 2
3. KOTOR 2
4. HALO
5. GTA San Andreas
