Skies of Arcadia is the most beautiful game ever made. I still remember the breathtaking landscapes and the general ambiance. You really feel that pirate/explorer. No other game I’ve ever played felt so good.

Combat mechanics could have been better (you basically spam the same attacks again and again) but it’s no worse than other JRPG of the time in this area.

I wish they made a sequel. Unfortunately I don’t know how they could. The whole game was based around exploration and by the end of it you explored it entirely.

I never played the original, but I got Skies of Arcadia Legends on Gamecube when it came out and loved it. I really enjoyed the large ship battles, though I'm not sure if those were added for that version or not. If they were just an addition, what a great one . Regular combat wasn't too bad at all for turn-based (something I never minded and even actually kind of like anyway), it was also the first RPG I remember playing that used that "common pool of points to distribute per turn for special moves" system.

Good RPG, would definitely recommend as well. Wish I still had my Gamecube and this game and my old save to just go explore around again now.

I always liked Drachma.


Yes ship battle were already a feature in the Dreamcast version. I never played the GC one but IIRC the only difference is a few more optional bosses in the GC one.

Games for 30-year-old boomers: oldish stuff, some new shit worthy of attention. None of that zoomer shit.

I will never get tired of this game



I spent enormous amount of time playing this online or in single player.


Diablo 1 had quests cut or simplified for release.


i think that video belongs in the interesting video game videos thread

File: 1566660418372.jpg (10.26 KB, 299x169, 23:13, tf2.jpg) ImgOps iqdb


(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.

tyler is retarded and i dont trust a word he says. first of all if this is the same video that said there were a total of 6000 players im going to complain because the very same site he quotes says there are 20000 unique players and ive heard teamwork.tf mods ban you if you ask them how they get this data (and that they also dont monitor all the servers, such as any of the australian ones). also this would not be the first time he has been wrong, and he also gives no sources at all, so fuck vnn, tf2 is dead when i cant find games


It's been 12 years, you know. Want to see neglected? See Left 4 Dead 1.


Left 4 dead 1 is neglected because 2 exists.


Its still a fun game with a large community. Hell, Half Life Deathmatch hasn't seen an update in decades and you can still find players there. Same with Counter Strike 1.6.

What the fuck is up with videogames these days? It's been almost 10 years and Elder Scrolls 6 hasn't come out. Every where I go people are talking about OLD games like Terraria and Minecraft and Rainbow Six Siege.

I DO live under a rock and don't really like video games anymore, but what the fuck?

>I hold that fallout 4 was a great game
I thought it was one of the most boring games i've played in years

What if all the 'good game ideas' have already been 'taken?' Sim City came out 30 years ago, and Sim City 2000 had to compete with it, and then Sim City 3000 had to compete with Sim City and Sim City 2000. Sim City 4 had to compete with Sim City, Sim City 2000, Sim City 3000, Anno 1800, Tropico, and LinCity. Cities Skylines has to compete with Sim City, Sim City 2000, Sim City 300, Sim City 4, LinCity, LinCity-NG, Anno 1800, Tropico 1 through 28, etc., etc.. Of course the pace of new games is going to decrease when it still has to compete with a gamer's time that can choose between a steadily expanding library of old games that only become easier and easier to grab emulated copies for free.

This theory then anticipates that growth of new videogames should be logarithmic. During the initial heyday of the videogame industry, new games were developed at a good, steady pace because the available library of competition was small, and the ideas that had yet to be mined was large. We have reached the opposite state now, and thus it should be entirely expected that new, good video games are few and rare.


>It's been almost 10 years and Elder Scrolls 6 hasn't come out.
This is actually infuriating. I mean, I know that it will be trash almost for certain, but it just annoys me that it's taking so damn long. Maybe there is a slim chance it won't be garbage. I'm so sick of BethFallout trash.


same with music, movies and any other media form


Good point, yup.

Yo, the final update for Terraria is dropping soon and I dont really have any bros to play with, so if you would like to chill just add me on discord. I dont really have other places where to look so might aswell give it a shot on my favourite site huh

dude#1626 (dont want to give away my steam on here, just hit me up first)
>inb4 normie blabla we need to communicate somehow sorry social phobia wizards


Shut the fuck up


>sorry social phobia wizards
You really do just lack any self awareness.


shove ur discord up ur ass


Isn't Terraria just Minecraft??


It's like minecraft but not the same. It has a lot of different items and mobs (i guess). And also it's 2d, so not the same.

Is super Mario odyssey any good?


i bought a switch for only four games.
rune factory 4 special, rune factory 5, animal crossing new horizons and monster hunter generations ultimate.

i desperately look around for other games worth playing but everything else looks like shit and piss. it's probably the worst game library i've ever seen, not counting joke consoles like the Tiger Hyperscan.
but, these farming games that you can play for 500000 hours will make it worth it.


me again. i ended up selling my Switch after how horrible New Horizons turned out to be. i bought a pet hamster with the money.


for me it's stardew valley, puyo puyo, wargrove, baba is you and automachef. waiting for battle brothers

Anyone here in the know how about the recent news on The Last of Us 2? What are your thoughts about the recent leaks, as well as the (apparently) shitty work environment that is Naughty Dog? Were you planning on buying the game, and are you still going to? Or have you been practicing gppd wizardry by unspoiling yourselves like good virgins?

And I like what's happening. It's a waste of the medium to make games which present a predetermined experience, relying on primitive techniques of linear storytelling and 'iconic' characters following a script. In extreme cases even counting on recognizable characters to pull a weak script and lacking gameplay along.
Games are interaction first and foremost, everything else is a decoration. Let the facade be discarded, advance the central aspects instead.
Full voice acting, big name celebrities, going for a cinematic feel, grooming the customers and manufacturing hype- it's all expensive and in the end superficial. I'd like to see games focusing more on advanced mechanics and complex interactions between systems of systems, making player agency paramount.
The Last of Us 2 Corporate Boogaloo is a cautionary tale. When you trust a soulless company to craft you a self-contained experience where you're reduced to a role of a spectator-player going through a predetermined story, you ask to be put on rails. Sometimes you might not like where their rails take you. All those disgruntled gamers should stop begging for amusement rides and ask for railway kits instead.


I only used marxist because I was thinking of pic related, but I was wrong though, I don't think the guy presenting is with naughty dog.

>I know what all games should and shouldn't be and have for everybody everywhere
heh, not like I was expecting any better from this thread anyway.


Behead those who insult the primacy of player agency.

To find a decent Android game you have to wade through a sea of shit that is Play Store. So share lesser known Android games that you liked. I got:
Battleheart Legacy - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFZYCumpvCA
An older single player RPG. Great combat and controls, interesting abilities and character builds, beautiful art, runs well on anything, too. The story is a bit short, but there is some endgame in the form of endless wave arena mode where you can get the best gear and try to set records.
League of Berserk - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGtrK7BS8bc
A real time multiplayer dueling game where you basically click on abilities and potions and level your guy. Very repetitive, I found it fun until I hit later levels (25ish?), then it gets extremely grindy. Surprisingly alright community (chat), quite a few players online, though in most duels you fight against bots that use real player profiles. Somewhat p2w but if you spend a lot of time playing it matters less.
Day R - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXf4zbih0Ps
Top-down survival..RPG?. A little similar to Fallout1/2 but more simplistic. You travel from town to town and gather resources, craft items and try not to die. There is an online mode where apparently you can trade and complete quests with other players. Quite repetitive and difficult, I found only the early game fun. No paid items except the insignificant starter premium pack for few dollars.
CSR2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9aYphit-JA
Online drag racing with ridiculously good and smooth graphics and lots of real car models. Beware - it's a heavily pay to win game. The only reason I mention it because you can get a modded .apk with unlimited stuff (that was some Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

would recommend soul knight


Yeah it is legitimately pretty good if you are into that type of game.


Spellweaver is fun if you like TCGs.


>no Mini Warriors
I played it from 2015-2019, but Triniti despite neglecting it has now updated it so my ancient tablet is no longer compatible. Valiant Hearts is a recommended game.
I remember playing NOVA on Facebook briefly way back in the day.

It's not exactly an hidden gem, but there's a rather good riichi mahjong client in English named Mahjong Soul. I remember a thread on mahjong years ago. It has a gacha, but you can ignore it completely as it's only cosmetic. There's been a merging of global and Japanese server and a large influx of new players after a v-tuber promo tournament and some pro players starting to use it, so it might not be as newbie friendly as it was a year ago, but it's still more accessible than tenhou due to it being in English and the more casual player base.

Looking for some wizard to pair up with for leveling 1-60 in Classic. I'm not much for talking but I like some company while questing, besides it being safer and generally less drudging and painful than doing it solo. I'd play a druid so I could tank or heal to make grouping for dungeons easy, you can pick any role you want (though I think it would be nice to play as some tank/healer duo). I can adjust to any time schedule.

Duo'd all of Scarlet Monastery. Still looking for more wizzies to join us.


This guy can't even play.


Wasn't this guy involved in some kind of drama? Isn't it boyposter?


yes, it is him.


This is a lie, they also have a discord circlejerk where they behave in a way indistinguishable from normalfags.

I bought a GTX-1060 and will upgrade my PC so I can actually play modern games now

What are some good games to play on Steam? I played Rising Storm 2 but not making classes and no team deathmatch sucks.

I thought about getting a hecksbawks to play Forza and battlefield but I spent my ducats on a graphics card instead.

Apparently Modern Warfare has adult community, I played RS2 and all the underage twink squeakers were so annoying and only occasionally would some surly adult male virgin tell them to stfu, and the votekick system is disgusting.

If you find a fps that isn't full of squeakers,let me know.


not nearly as bad as cringy teenage memelords

video games are made for children, you can't avoid them


try post scriptum


You could try rainbow six siege, though you probably won’t like the community. If you want something more co-op there’s also monster hunter world and warframe. Both are pretty grindy though.


yeah by squeakers I meant obvious teenage/college twink boy memelords who are really loud or act like they think everything is a big joke because they obviously don't know how the real world is. very annoying.

I am fully aware 100% that video-games are for kids and I haven't been "gamer" since I was in highschool, but I was just feeling lonely knowing legit adult male virgins like me are rare even on online video games.


I thought about one of those old games but I don't wanna spend a bunch of money on 3-5 year old games. When my card gets here and I install it I might try looking around at some of them
