There's an unvirgin(impostor) among us!

This thread is to organize a game of Among us among us wizards(heh)
How? First, someone who is interested in playing makes a post and if 3 more wizards follow with a reply a person can host and share a code. Simple as that.

For those of you who don't have the game, you just have to download from one of these links and that's all you will need to play it online:





The links are from igg-games, btw.

A game release 2 decade ago predicted so much about future.

Mass surveillance and spying on citizen. Google and facebook having info of citizens like icarus , morpheus AI. Self employment on decline and wealthy controlling the world.

Restriction on speech and criticism. Everything feels so compartmentalized.

if you want to talk about games predicting the future you cant not bring up MGS2


>Brave New World as textbooks
>1984 was not supposed to be a manual!
it's cute but it's really not how it works i think. artists observe and express cultural trends and patterns, along with the potential futures that arrive from these patterns in the artists' cerebral simulation of events, and distill it into a readily digestible memetic format. once it is popular enough the ideas are infused into individual world-models en masse and this consequently affects the behavior of individuals who will then act in a way that moves toward the actualization of said models and their termini. there is no collection of elite, mysterious others who drive the actualization of these trends so much as we are dynamic systems that both take in information from the surrounding culture and exert an outward force that shapes and influences the same surrounding culture. (not to say there is no class of elites that contribute to the direction of culture, there is but their intentions are never realized quite as directly as they intend: we can thank their lack of omniscience a.k.a entropy)


to elaborate/clarify a little bit: the world-models become widely shared ideals, often held to a higher esteem than existing law and more general societal structure. these are ideals are then unconsciously, collectively pursued as they are more desirable than the current reality


JFC, every time this gets brought up there's a feeling of horror in my gut that's worse than the last.

>It's not about censorship, it's about creating context.

This is a line that will stick with me as hard as any great line of literature.

What games released for sixth generation consoles (PS2/GC/Xbox/DC) and younger (SNES/Genesis/PS1/N64/Saturn/etc.) do you think were the best, and are ones you would suggest?

I really loved starfox adventures. It's easily in my top 2 games for gamecube. It's kind of like a legends of zelda game in many ways.


File: 1629966582639.png (76.65 KB, 1024x600, 128:75, fav gba game list current.png) ImgOps iqdb

That's so broad I'd have to just choose my top 200 games.
ff7, tomb raider, re 1 and 2, megaman legends 1 and 2, legacy of kain, spyro, lots of jrpg games in general, hexen, megaman x, etc
Chrono Trigger, Mario RPG, many ff6/ff3, earthbound, mario all stars, yoshi's island, super mario world, star fox, megaman x games, zelda alttp
Zelda la, super mario land 1 and 2, wario, kirby, etc
Zelda oracle of ages/seasons, crystalis, etc
Zelda minish cap, kirby, golden sun 1 and 2, castlevania aria of sorrow and those other two they made of castlevania, luigi and mario superstar saga (or whatever that rpg was called), megaman zero games, final fantasy reboots, etc
Zelda majora's mask and ocarina of time, mario 64, megaman 64, re2, starfox, shadowman, perfect dark, shadowgate, hexen, etc
Metroid prime 1 and 2, the two zelda games, baten kaitos, the re games, etc
Mario 3, Zelda 1, Kirby, shadowgate and deja vu, crystalis, final fantasy games, the megaman games, etc

Guess I'm done brainstorming now….well, that's what I think of when I type out my top interests of the systems I care about, of which like you OP, I don't count gen 7. Just 3, 4, 5, and 6, and mainly just 4, 5, and 6 really. I'm sure I left lots of games out as I have 200ish downloaded on my various devices and also backed up onto redundant drives along with other stuff. For example image related does not even include every gba game that I currently have.

>3 is not yet translated that I am aware of but I'd probably play that too if it ever does get translated
I looked it up because I was sure it got fan translated, but it is not complete yet it would seem.

Any games you guys think people MUST play? currently playing GTA: SA and it's pretty damn good.

Boring as hell even when they came out


Im a gearhead.
Metal Gear
Guilty Gear


How about Gears of War?


I think people should have a broad introduction to various types of games if they want to get into it, so I'm going to suggest a few for each genre.

RTS - Starcraft 2. Broodwar if you want hardmode
Stealth - MGS3. Don't play it for the stealth though. Play it for the experience.
open RPG - Dark souls. Start with any of them.
"JRPG" - Undertale. Mother 3 if you want the OG experience.
multiplayer FPS - CSGO
single player FPS - bioshock
Puzzle - Portal 1
Fighting - super smash bros melee. ultimate is also another choice if you don't have a GC
solo sandbox - minecraft
multiplayer sandbox - garrys mod. nothing has ever beaten raping and killing people outside spawn with some friends, then raping the admin and getting banned.

Also, what's with the titanfall 2 shilling going on here? The game is basically CoD with even more variance due to the movement system and shitty OP mechs.


agree with it being a journalist top games list, but i don't think you need to buy at release to truly know how good a game is.
in my experience the appeal of a good game wont age. broodwar, melee and deus ex are still great games

Should I get a new gen console or a gaming PC based on the fact that I only enjoy a select few games. No offense, but I'd rope myself before playing a lot of the stuff you like. Maybe I need to broaden my tastes because I used to enjoy a lot more games as a kid but I really can't bring myself to give a fuck about most games.

Games I like:

I agree wiz, nothing worth playing on pc anyway so in an ironic twist emulating old console games is the way to go lol


what do I mean by this? every game gets a port to console and vice versa, can't criticize the whole platform though. the totally awesome modding is the saving grace of pc imo :)


It's easier to copyright infringe console games for one thing. The second thing is that it'll have pc games AND be able to emulate better, most likely, than the consoles will be able to emulate console games and also obviously will be most likely better at playing pc games even if there are x86 emulators and such.
>just buy whatever is popular
>just watch jewtubers playing walkthroughs then buy what the e-whore says to buy
>just be advertised to in some magazine or e-magazine
>don't be wary of normalfaggy things that you'd hate and just consume without question
I'm dumb for seeing two ps2 games that seem to be the same and reading an online encyclopedia's descriptions though.

Seriously, what makes you spend your neet income(, if not a normalfaggot contributing to society,) on x game that would be hard to emulate on psx2? I have to have a good reason to take an interest for rather obvious reasons and when I played re4 I was pissed and so when popular games get listed right next to something I hate as something x person loves I hand-wave it. It's wise technically, or do you trust niggers? If x thing is likely shit then why give it a chance in my position?


>>based meme

You do realize where this is from, right?

The anime poster was making fun of how snowflake the OP sounds you realize and it was a joke due to the fact that only the deleted poster knows what op actually likes. I'm not sure if joking around is against the rules, but whatever. I guess it's rule five for being low effort but that also applies to Mr. Based of whom is trying to keep shit flinging going.


but I play vita and 3ds :( and if there are emulators it's not the same if it's not on the go (not trying to start a debate or use the good ole couch gaming argument)
> if x is shit why give it a chance
not him (54613)but how do you know if you haven't played the game xD that is prejudging, if you don't like it that's fine wiz. not everyone likes the same thing
sotc couldn't be more different than gow. I prefer the silence of it rather than the loud roars of the orchestra and chaos of gow battles but that's just me. others will find it boring though , reminds me of lcddem in a way


They have ultra mobile pc's aka umpc's for on the go emulation. Gpd android and gpd windows and others I'm sure that have video game buttons. Still a pc. I think I heard psp and ds emulation came a long way.

Any wizards like sports games? Madden 22 just dropped last week. I'm playing as the Buccs with my boy Brady.

aren't all these sports games just the same rehashed trash pushed out by EA every year?

I like those too like Space Jam or Gnarls Barkley Gaiden but the simlikes got a different mood. Thinking of picking up Fire Pro wrestling on a sale.


It isn't that there is no demand for arcade style sports games. It's that only one company gets a license for most sports leagues and it is hard to compete without having licensed teams.

So no nba jam because EA has a exclusive license to the nba.
No NFL bliz because EA has exclusive license to the NFL.
And so on.


Fire Pro is super overrated IMO.


I might buy Fire Pro Wrestling on sale.


About five years ago, I used to be able to get pretty much any old, used game I wanted for pretty cheap. Over the past few years, I've noticed "retro video games" go up by hundreds and sometimes even thousands of dollars.

Embed related gives one side of this story, but I just wanted to make this post because I have another theory. What if major videogames corporations wanted to buy out and make older videogames as expensive as possible to force the masses to stop playing older games?

Because at the moment, most videogame publishers are trying to get users on a subscription model (or SOME sort of planned obsolensence model), where you can only play their games for a certain amount of time while you're paying them some sort of monthly rate. Gamers, on the other hand, see that they can get older games (and roms) and just play the everloving shit out of them and never have to deal with that bullshit.

Coupled with this is that fact that older games haven't suddenly become "worse to play" while newer games have gotten shittier and shitter. So, we've gotten to the point where old games are so good that major corporations see this as competition for their new products, and they're right to see this as their biggest point of competition, and are therefore trying everything they can to take these older games off the market–by hook or by crook.

Therefore, if they jack up the prices of "retro games" as much as possible, then take them out of the market, and then enforce their DMCA bullshit to take down every rom site out there…the classic games are erased from existence and we're forced to play their new piles of dogshit.


well right now there is some new fad where people are obsessed with old retro stuff, same thing with trading cards, probably other things too, people want to buy it and put it on their shelf so they can pretend that they are a nerd
>we've gotten to the point where old games are so good that major corporations see this as competition for their new products, and they're right to see this as their biggest point of competition
no, nes games are still mostly shit, people just want those epic obscure cartridges that no one gave a shit about when it was new and because of that it's 'rare', also tons of people trying to be speedrunners and think they need original hardware and carts when pretty much any record site lets you submit runs from emulators

basically, it's normalfags being normalfags


Its amazing to me that my 2020 gaming PC far exceeding the recommended GPU benchmarks, struggles to get 60fps on games from 2010-2015

Games are such ridiculous resource hogs. No wonder PC gamers have to construct supercomputers to process them.

Fucking this.
I just upgraded my computer.
I am finding out really fast that some games were being held back by my limited hardware but many of the games that ran kind of shit were because of poor optimization and shitty coding issues. Meaning that a few of the games could be run on a super computer and still have a trash frame rate among other issues.


if you're serious about getting good performance, I recommend getting revios 1909 and disabling as much windows crap as possible with the help of n1kobg. A random autist that wanted battlefield to run better is indeed smarter than the entirety of microsoft and linux morons combined.

some older games are unoptimized because they didn't think about new hardware

Cool graphics.


You've been listening for over an hour, don't forget to take a break.


I prefer Dragon's Crown.


I thought so too but it's actually a pretty good action JRPG


Because you saw people hyping it on the popular sites.



General thread for anything relate to strategy and wargames. Real time and turn-based. Historic and fantasy.

Same here, but I don't need to sleep and with Hoi2 or rather Darkesh hour.

Great waste of time.


>Civ 6 got ruined by the expansion packs. It has a global warming mechanism now.
>It has a global warming mechanism now.
I remember this being a mechanic way back in civ2.


Oh, I only ever played 5 and 6 so it's new to me. Flooding and volcanoes.


RobZ realism for Men of War AS2. Probably the most realistic WW2 game i've ever played.

Also for Total War; Broken Crescent for Medieval 2 and Europa Barbarorum for Rome.
