Has there ever been a game with a similar game format to Middle Earth Shadow of War? Specifically the elements I want are: 1) collecting like pokemon. You need to be able to find rare and valuable ones by playing the game and 2)you use the characters you collect to fight for you in non-turn-based combat.

The thing where you can collect orcs and get them to fight for you and against each other in the arena was really novel and good gameplay for me. I want more but with even more variations to collect, something like pokemon but with melee combat also where you can control your character. Does anything like this exist? I asked chat GPT but it didn't give me any leads except for maybe mount and blade 2 bannerlord which I'm not sure how that works or if it's what I'm looking for. I think I remember shadow of mordor/war winning awards/acclaim back when they came out, so did anyone ever clone this format of game?

Warner Brothers patented their "Nemesis System" from Shadow of War/Mordor. Might explain the lack of clones.

Every big release became hype trains where they promise you the earth and more, and people caught on when they kept delivering broken unfinished games. Now whenever something is announced I don't even get excited because there's a good chance it just lingers in dev hell until it's canceled. Not to mention most of the game franchises I cared about just kinda petered out. I want a new stealth game so badly, but the last one that really scratched that itch was the latest deus ex and that released in 2016.

Legends arceus was the only mainline pokemon game I played since sun and moon, and it was alot of fun. I'm excited for this too.
It's cool that they're revisiting older generations and doing new stuff with them outside of just remakes (Reminds me that people are still asking for gen 5 remakes for some reason, as if those games even need to be remade). And Kalos is definitely a region that deserves to be explored more.

Still no new PMD game, though. That's disappointing.

Not him but I enjoyed those games as a kid largely just because it was "platforming, but you can fly"… I was a sucker for that. There's a flying power up in mario galaxy that I loved even though you barely get to use it. I guess if you can just fly everywhere it defeats the purpose of platforming but eh it's fun.

Neverwinter Nights has just about infinite content considering how long it's been out. There are a ton of user-made campaigns and servers for that game. The servers often called "persostemt worlds" or PWs are basically small MMORPGs. I played a mod based on an original adventure by Gary Gygax "The Keep on the Borderlands", which I think is pretty fun for giving a new character a test run. Also the character building is very in-deprh since it's based on 3e rules.

Pre-rendered backgrounds with 3D assets should've remained until at least the 2010s for certain genres. I'm pretty sure much of the love for the golden age of Final Fantasy (VII- IX) and the early Resident Evil games is due to the highly detailed nature of pre-rendered graphics. The worlds depicted felt more alive and lived in, meaning kids could imagine themselves in it more easily.

It's just a factor that nobody really picks up on when discussing these games. I remember my Grandma watching me play through the Winhill sequence in Final Fantasy VIII and going on about how beautiful the village looked. I don't think you could've had anything comparable in detail in full 3D for at least fifteen years, and not anything as consistently pretty over the course of a full game until around today.

Final Fantasy X was sort of a graphical step down in a sense of so much being plain, flat and ugly. So much so that when you step into a pre-rendered background house, you're taken back by how detailed that is compared to the ugly flatness of the outside.

I think the reason they died out was sort of sloppy mapping, and that developers wanted to the flex the capabilities of the console's hardware and their own skills. They really are better than anything in-engine, when people talk of graphics they care about how good it looks when you're playing the game but in terms of fidelity and detail they peaked in the 6th generation with how the game looked in cutscenes, lighting, texturing, and final touches. The FMVs in Stalker were a good example of a linear progression of technology that still had playback issues but was getting better and more natural-looking by the year. I hope this is understandable.

Then in the 7th generation everything started to look like sticky claymation and physics while actually physics-based now instead of being individually scripted weren't at the level of technology necessary, everyone was rightfully excited for new tech and rendering methods but it felt premature compared to the prior progression of 3D graphics even if the lighting and particles were more sophisticated. I'm not a programmer so maybe it was something to do with consoles' components resembling PCs more now than the proprietary designs of the 5th and 6th generations with new technologies made for them that didn't require the sophistication of the prior gen to make models and maps, or middleware that was prioritizing realism over detail. Graphics have gotten worse now due to video game developers being mediocre college grads whose games are as primitive as tech demos so it's just been an exponential decay since then, a shitty game ten years ago was trite and derivative with DLC and optimization issues, I don't know the range of how bad it is now.

because modern players would complain about not being able to move the camera around, I've seen many people saying old resident evil games are "unplayable" because of fixed camera angles
>And why did the point & click genre die out?
they just fell out of fashion, the point and click public moved on to other stuff like walking simulators

I want to play pirated games but don't want to infect my computer with virus.
So I am thinking of dual Booting windows
So that I can run games on one partion and use another partition for serious work
In case if the gaming partition get infected with malware I can simply reset that partition.
Will this work correctly??

Nobody knows, I wouldn't put my money on them being a female, cracker empress (popular for being the one cracker who can crack denuvo games) was recently said to be some fat polish dude, which is not 100% proven but very likely to be true.
Them pretending to be a female is probably just a ploy to get more donations from desperate idiots and maybe make investigations harder, which I doubt would work but they may think it does.
