are there any games you used to like, and you replayed them and realized they were bad?

shin megami tensei strange journey was in my top 5 games of all time list back in 2012 to 2018.
i replayed it this year and it's so much easier and braindead than i remembered, i think i became more skilled at turn-based games and at exploring maps and conserving MP, and this game just offers no difficulty whatsoever for me now and i steamrolled through all fights. i remember when i first played the game, horkos was so difficult that i died to him 8 times in a row. when replaying i killed him in like 5 turns. it is a simplistic game for babies. play wizardry 8 if you want a hard turn based experience.

or how about dead rising? this is another game that i considered infallible art, i bought an xbox just to play this game back in the day. when replaying its HD rerelease on PS4, all of the psychopaths are way less interesting than i remember them being, the dialogue isn't even cheezy or fun, it's just melodramatic. dead rising 2 is superior in just about every single way with much more effort put into balance and content quality and quantity. and the funny thing is, i didn't even like dead rising 2 at launch. it makes me feel like i've evolved as a person.

maybe i will add more later as i think more on this subject.

let me know if this has happened to you.

cave story perfectly captures the soul of early 00's japanese art. i do have a visceral reaction to smug anime faces, i will admit.

i just don't enjoy games as much overall as a medium anymore.


It is a pretty easy game, the strength of Max Payne always was the plot and presentation


>play it with gyro controls
just googled that, never heard of it before. interesting


OP's image has been here since 2019, but I only now found it, its actually from the ROTJ set.

My headcanon for that pic was always that Boba Fett under the mask is just a boring office drone doing his job, even though it takes him to glamorous and seedy adventure places. Even surrounded by aliens in slave bikinis, he's just world weary and bored of it all, clocking in to another day at the office.


Skyrim. The game blew my mind when it came out but I play it now I see that it's so fucking shallow. It has no depth whatsoever and its writing is lazy, the civil war questline sucks, the world is as wide as an ocean but as deep as a puddle. It's a big map but there's nothing to fucking do in it. There's a lot of caves but they're all the same and you don't even find good loot. The whole game is just empty. It's far worse than its predecessors, Morrowind and Oblivion really are better.

Also I used to love Fallout 3 until I was old enough to actually play 1, 2 and New Vegas and realise it's shit.

It's the first souls game that makes me not want to replay it again so the DLC better be something new entirely

I would like to see something like a massive battlefield group PVP like when you first ride through Caelid to Radahns Castle and there are ballistas and siege weapons trying to take you down. Maybe something like 30 people trying to storm the castle while there is fewer on castle defense but have access to ballista and rock throwers


>It's the first souls game that makes me not want to replay it again
I think i know what you mean, it wasn't a bad game, but there is something amiss with it, whatever the issue is i hope that dlc will dress it.


My problem with it it's that everything is just too big and scattered, like if I wanna replay dark souls I'd be fighting O&S in like 5 hours, but in this game everything takes forever, it's great for a first playthrough but I just can't be bothered to go back to it.


man this is not encouraging, I like the souls games but I have yet to play this, the horse and high fantasy settings are not my cup of tea


i uninstalled this game the open world feels pointless

but also im severely depressed

Chose a random nation, Bosnia. Got a gold province, Kosovo. Going to conquer Venice soon.
Just pulled off the slickest move on my entrance into Italy. The Papal States had a peasants war, so rebels ended up beginning sieges in all 3 of their forts and each time I took over when they were about to fall. A good player can fight tough wars, a great player can create easy wars.

Was just running the game in observe mode, pretending to be God directing history a bit (made Norway colonize).
Saw that Turks took Vienna so I decided to play earnestly to right this, as Styria. It's taken 23 years to get to this point. I might also become HRE emperor.
Mostly I just had to bide my time, abdicate for a better ruler, ally the commonwealth. I also took Salzburg in a war they called me in (it was painful that my estate agenda giving me claims on east bavaria expired months before getting called into that war), and a province from Hungary during the Ottoman war so the commonwealth wouldn't join Hungary's side.

My current situation is:
I have 4 electors ready to make me HRE emperor whenever the 30 year old Bavarian emperor dies.
I already have pretty good absolutism.
By mission tree I can get a restoration of union casus belli on Hungary* at any time. *Surrounded by yellow dashed line.

My current main allies are Russia and Bohemia. My plans for the rest of the game are to expand as shown by lines. Bright red is near future, dark red is later on.

Couldn't get Russia in on this war. But I got lucky cause the Ottomans are all in Arabia probably close to annexing the Mamluks. No resistance.

so I'm not usually into this type of game. but i was intrigued by the depth of the customization. it seems like you really get to worldbuild your own fantasy, create your own lore, gaming as a storymaking machine. you setup the initial conditions, and the game writes your fantasy novel for you.

I want to play neotokyo° but no one plays it…there's this steam group that organize parties every weekends and gather together to play the game. I also want to do the same but with my fellow wizzies: I want to create a group on steam and schedule so american wizzies and europeans wizzies and aussies wizzies play all together, so we could all play together. I was thinking of sunday, no wizzies work on sunday

what do you think of my idea? I think it's a good idea


you first need to convince everyone why the game is worth playing


There used to be one group hosting games at certain times…. 10-12 people. It's not a great game, go heavy and just walk real slow slicing the pie around corners with an AR. Better game is Project Reality for miltactics and that's also kind of shit


I played a bit back in the day, it was fun but I'm really bad


It looks fun, I might install it to give it a go.
I could play Sundays, or any day tbh lmao
Is there a steam group already?

I'm looking for games for escapism. Specially those with the potencial for hundreds if not thousands of hours of playtime. So a sandbox or an MMO could work. My first option is of course Minecraft, but it requires creativity and sometimes I'm lacking enough to keep me engaged. As for MMOs, I never got into them. Old School Runescape is the only one that grabs my attention a little, but haven't played past the tutorial.
I specially like games that may be considered casual or 'comfy' such as Animal Crossing or Stardew Valley. Tried Factorio too but I think I lack the brainpower to keep up with its mechanics.
I'm also open for recomendations in social hangouts. I used to spend days doing nothing but play Second Life or exploring Worlds.com, though the later has been corrupted by normalfags. VRChat is only good for wandering around empty worlds because it has a shit community I don't want to engage into.
So anyways, this is a thread for games that are comfortable, even addictive but not necessarily competitive, to sink as many hours as we can to escape from real life. Basically, games to life a virtual life.

yeah its really fun, there is nothing really wrong with the game, the internet as a whole has just become really shitty socially, if you can people to play with that aren't retarded normalfags then you'll have a lot of fun


It's alright, but sometimes it can start feeling like a chore and I need to take a break for a few months.

Or just do PUGs for everything. You don't need to talk to people unless you're doing mythic raiding or really high keys.


Are you talking about King's Field? Because I haven't but maybe I should check them out


xpiratez. I've heard of people spending more than a year playing that game. You will get utterly creamed in the early terror missions and basically have to skip or savescum intensely for the first few months. I'll never forget my first mission raiding a science ship for prisoners with black powder muskets at night with the drone doing perimeter sweeps every turn or two… very eazy and a massive time sink


High hours are not mandatory, but the more you can put in the better.
And the community is that of the peak internet years.

wizardly video game right here


i am playing it again using this emulator^

i used to play it when i was a kid but never got far. it's one of the games that requires a guide or walkthrough


File: 1657027767669.png (3.79 KB, 320x288, 10:9, 43754.png) ImgOps iqdb

I played the PS1 version when I was a kid. It was a fun game, but I never finished it.
On the other hand, the GBC version is a real gem. It's a weird hybrid between a stealth game and Pac-man.

i bet the game finally


Ahaha, same as you guys played it as a kid, never finished it.
Unlike Bug's Life, which had a scratched CD, Grinch was too complicated for my non-english speaking ass.


LETS GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Share any observations, positive or negative. Installing the game as we speak


It's censored garbage.
They gave Ashley stupid looking pants instead of a skirt.

And they changed most dialogue to remove anything offensive to succubi. Besides various other things getting cut out.

have you ever played this game before? is it good or bad? (I watch some videos about it but it seems meh) but the graphics, the lore and the ambiant make me want to play it.
I tried to find something about the story but couldn't, can someone tell me about the story, pleas?
thank you

the problem of the game (and is why I don't want to buy it) it's because it is a rpg game a la jrpg. so by this I mean a game where only num ers matters firstly (but I also know theres this coin mechanic in the game that makes the game more in inverving), secondly theres this another mechanic during battle phase that I call strategic hot (you can select any part of the body to hit with 1n attack). The game is mainly played, obviously, for its story than gameplay. And I think thats the main purpose of games made with rpg maker: to tell a story. the gameplay is here just to run the story.

>why fear and hunger (termina too) made me interested in it?

Because of the art and charadesign use, its dark and beautiful, If there is people lile me out here who likes dark fanatsy /grim/dark ambient games, this is one of the game you should play.
But I woun't because of the gameplay and it also looks like chaotic.
So for now I will wait for fear and hunger 3 to truely see if this is a game series worth it

(you're the one who replyed to my post, I appreciate and because of this I want you to k ow my feeling about F&H series. let me know whats on your mind about it)


Your impression is accurate, the combat is not very good and the games are more played for the story and art style. Especially in the first game, combat is very unbalanced and even basic enemies can destroy you, so it's better to try to run past enemies and avoid combat for most of the game. There are also some annoying things. The game is designed to be unfairly hard, and many things can be overcome once learning how the game works, but sometimes random chance just ruins your playthrough. I think both games are on The Pirate Bay, so you can torrent them and try them out if you don't want to buy. I think they can be fun despite all the unfair stuff, its kind of like gambling when you die and retry and hope for better random items or results in combat.


I enjoyed it for the first couple of hours, but then the difficulty becomes more annoying and repetitive than anything


>rpg game
Wiz, I…
>a la jrpg.
Not a JRPG, is a roguelike.


Wiz, I…
what?, if it's not a rpg whats that?


What do you think of grinding in videogames? Do you find it relaxing, or a chore?

You´re the reason why games fucking suck.
Too bad, you can´t ruin what has already been made in the past.
That´s the only good thing.

Hey there wizfrens where should I go to buy a working Sega Dreamcast system. Ebay, Amazon or Facebook marketplace? I plan on selling my Original Xbox and PS2 and go buy me a Sega Dreamcast system after playing it at my friend's house. My friend won't sell me his. So any ideas?

I knew some kids who had one. It was okay, I liked it more than the PS2 but the Gamecube and Xbox were more fun.


Why the fuck didn't you just emulate? There's so many neat enhancements now days with the games that there's literally no point in getting a Dreamcast with a pack of CDRs to burn games that are only going to fuck up because of the compressed data vs full emulation and not having to give scalpers all of your money that you could save for something better.

Interesting someone upped this thread. I've downloaded every single Dreamcast title ever released including JP ones and I'm currently exploring its game library. So far, to be brutally honest, I haven't found anything that interesting yet, but I've only just begun, we'll see how it goes. I've played about 8 hours of Evolution 2 and was unimpressed with it. Wrote a review of my experience here >>59642.

I've also played EGG some time ago and that game is really good. Unfortunately several threads on the archive are broken and you can't access my original post anymore but I did save my review of that one in an anon blog I used to save my game reviews, you can read it here; https://gameboy2017.wordpress.com/2019/08/08/206/. Definitely a game I recommend if you want to play some dreamcast stuff.

I've also played both Crazy Taxi titles for this console and they're really fun. I didn't write reviews on those because they're fairly popular titles even today and I don't think I have much to say about it. It's a very arcadey game and it works best if you play 30 min at a time, otherwise it might get a little bit repetitive. It's a very fun game though with a lot of replayability.

I've played a few hours of Radirgy, an interesting looking shmup with bullet hell bosses. I did enjoy it for its visuals and odd story (for a shmup anyways) but overall it's a shmup experience you can get with a lot of other games, from the Dreamcast itself and other consoles and PC. Nothing really stands out other than how it looks. Visually it's very unique and worth a shot because of that. I don't think people who really like and play lots of shmups will be impressed with it though. Its gameplay is really standard.

A game that did stand out to me is Rez, but I've only played a little of it at the time of this writing. It's a weird rail shooter where you can shoot enemies and they make a beat you can synchronize with the music. It felt a little gimmicky but I can't remember a game quite like it, especially from that era. I guess that makes it a unique gaming experience. I'll try to complete it sometime soon, I checked a video on it and it's a fairly short game.

Finally I’ve played a little bit of Bangai-O, a game I was looking for since I’m an admirer Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


If you like JRPGs, Skies of Arcadia is p. good.


File: 1678969188435.png (681.05 KB, 1440x1080, 4:3, Rainbow Cotton (Japan)-230….png) ImgOps iqdb

Forgot to say I've also played Rainbow Cotton and I don't know what it is with some of the Cotton games but a couple of them are completely broken. I'm a fan of the Cotton series but this one is virtually unplayable. It's hard to believe they had a chance to make a Cotton game for the Dreamcast and went to use the broken view of Panorama Cotton. Holy shit. Also hard to believe nobody noticed any problems during the production of this title. Look at this. Cotton completely covers your view! You can't see what you're shooting at, you can't see what's in front of you, can't aim, the notion of distance is really odd because you can't really tell how close you're to objects and even if you could, Cotton it so damn huge it's hard to navigate around anything anyways.

I don't get it how they would make the same mistake after the fiasco that was Panorama Cotton. What a pity.

Thanks, it's on my list, I'll try it eventually.
