I grew up with games. I think I played at least half of the games which are listed in various Top games of All times lists. I used to be able to immerse myself completely into the games, and play for hours and hours. Even in the last few years, every once in a while I ran into a title that I could really fall into and clock hours playing it - not as much as when I was younger, but still.

Now this hasn't happened in quite a while, with really rare exceptions. I just can't start a new game, I don't have the patience to learn it and explore it, especially if there's a lot of things to take in (skill descriptions, complex game mechanics, long cinematics etc.).

I have a big back log of games on Steam that I purchased and never played, or played for a few minutes and then uninstalled because I just can't be bothered.

It's a shame, and it makes me feel melancholic.

Did anyone else go through with this? Did you find new hobbies? Is this thread even fit for /games/? Discuss, please.

I've been getting the same way. I sometimes binge on a certain game for a bit but I almost never really play many games at all except for a single game in my steam library, everything is just so boring.
It's not all bad for me though, I've wanted to quit games for a while now and getting tired of them basically takes them out of my life almost entirely. I didn't get rid of them through will and discipline like I wanted but at least they're almost gone, if not completely gone. Now they're just a time waster or a coping method instead of the vice they used to be.
It might not be so great losing a hobby that nearly consumed your life since you were young but try to look at the bright side, you can start new things now. You have more time and money to do some of the things you have always wanted to do if you have any of those things. I hope you find something good, wizzie.


getting high usually brings back those feelings of immersion. it works really well. however i understand not everyone has easy access to drugs.


Play games you enjoy. If it's not fun after a hour, move on…


That looks fun. I like the designs too.i


thread is one year old, these "too depressed to play games/don't enjoy them anymore" seem to pop up every now and then and I'm sick of it because you know the op just want to vent, and while there's nothing wrong with that fundamentally (i can relate) it would be better to keep that shit to /dep/ where it belongs please

I've heard people here say in the past they like watching gameplay-only let's plays without any commentary or anything. I can't imagine this being very interesting. I've seen some videos titled "longplays" before, I've used them here and there as a sort of walkthrough.

Anyway, I'm curious to those that do like these sort of videos, do you have any favorite runs?

For the Thief games I like Plutonia https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuGHKUz3FMcLc5bqxUmol8A. He's does excellent ghost runs for the early Thief games, basically he goes through the whole level without ever been noticed. If you ever tried that yourself you know how much effort and love for those games are invested in those videos.
For the other ones I really don't have a particular link to give you, I will search "game's title no commentary" then check out the best player who did the full game and watch that. The only gaming videos I do watch sometimes that are not longplays with no commentary is a guy called Fernin320, he's on a quest to play every single gb, gbc, gg, gba game out there. As I love those early handhelds myself his channel hits a soft spot for me.

I seem to remember this, thanks.

>Watching random silent gameplay footage isn't much different than staring at the wall in a way

To me it's very different. You know what it is, you know when you're driving somewhere there's all this interesting things to see on the road and the surroundings but you miss out because you need to focus on driving. Well to me watching those videos is like taking the passenger seat, you're not tense and focused on playing and overcoming the obstacles so you can just relax and appreciate the game in a very different level than when you're playing yourself.


There are some other people who attempt to beat a certain console. NESMania comes to mind of one that's actually been completed. All NES games beat in around 5,000 hours I think. A more impressive feat is landail who streams on Twitch (and posts his VODs to Youtube) who is attempting to beat all console released RPGs across all platforms. He is going in order of release date and has beaten over 200 games so far and is up to 1999. He is almost around 5,000 hours so far too. Here is his excel spreadsheet:




>To me it's very different.

That's fine. It might be true for some, such as yourself, but I've never really felt anything similar. For me, unless I'm directly engaged in a hands on fashion with what it is I'm doing (so playing it myself, basically), then the various nice touches & details in the levels or other extra things in the design usually doesn't sink in and fly right by me. Watching another person waddle through a game, no matter how well it is they know it, has always been a very disconnected experience and will, personally speaking, never be a substitute for actually digging into and finishing it in real time for myself. As a result, that's why I almost always keep to watching footage from old stuff I've played already, or the random crap I have no interest in. Like having a TV running in the background with the sound turned off. All the while staring off into space in an unconscious fugue simply because you got nothing better to do. There's exceptions, of course. Pathologic & The Void being two examples.

I actually just remember how I watched, mostly, all of CannibalK9's excellently informative & relaxing playthrough of The Void a long time ago, so just a bit of an addendum, I suppose. I'd still like to play it for myself someday, but sometimes just watching can be a nice half-measure. Especially for weird, esoteric ordeals like the kind Icepick Lodge offers.

CannibalK9's Void playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_wZZ8SaLVU&list=PLB8F47C6867017A55

SulMatul's Pathologic playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5Y4Zjp_5S0&list=PLO6dQRhxbNE8X4VVY7nMEw8bc3DmoV0ev

I do find it odd how I'll often never notice the soundtrack when I'm playing a game. One example of this being beating Hotline Miami 2 and then hearing Le Perv & Roller Mobster a few months later and thinking I was hearing them for the Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

I do walk-through for adventure games like the Sierra ones. eg. King's Quest
Some of the things you have to do is quite cryptic.


Anyone remember the old TechTV/G4 show cinematech?
That was perfection to me. Short bits of well edited gameplay, sometimes with nice music over it.
Gave you a feel for the games but didn't stick around to any one game long enough for it to ever feel boring.

I really liked that show.

Should I buy one of these? there are even games worth playing besides zelda?
62 posts and 5 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


That's on every system after (and including) xb360.


Use it to play MARIO


This can get me to buy switch as RF4 was the only game I truly enjoy on 3DS but if they gonna leave english dubbing and there won't be possibility to pirate games then I'll pass.
If i remember correctly there was no official RF4 release with jap dubbing but you could grab modified iso to get it working.


Yeah, the dub will be the deal-breaker. I'd be fine with one if it were done well, but they are rarely of good quality. But they keep forcing it on us anyway.


Are they fully voicing it or something? The dubs in 3 and 4 weren't great but honestly the characters weren't really voiced enough to annoy me.

But I know Japanese and will be importing so it doesn't really matter, I guess.

Can we get sort of a Souls/Bloodborne general thread going? I am mostly a PC gamer, but I do own a PS4, and I just bought Bloodborne. I've been really playing it a lot, and currently I'm fighting the 'Witch of Hemwick.' Anyway, I really like the atmosphere of these games; lonely, foreboding, and depressing. Very much like the life of a wizard in the sea of normal-ness. I think my favorite Souls-like game has to be Dark Souls II. Although I actually never completed it, I had a lot of fun, and I thought that m+k was much more tolerable than it was for Dark souls I.

This thread is a simple thread that can be about Bloodborne, Dark Souls I,II or III, or even Dark Souls. It can be about any element, the lore or enemies, or anything. Also, any action RPG game recommendations are greatly appreciated.

God I hope they make a DD2


Congratulations, you're a human being.



kinda but not really, It would be better if it was more about the stealth, but instead they allow the stealth and then you have to do the combat anyways. The game is about combat, stealth is barely a decorative element.



FromSoft owns the rights to Tenchu and originally the game was meant to be a Tenchu remake, then they realized "lol, no" and just made a souls-like type game anyways


I'm finally beat dark souls 1. A burden has been lifted after all these years

In this thread we talk about handheld consoles of any generation and games that we consider good.
I'm currently playing Super Mario Land 2 DX which is a romhack that adds color and removes any sort of lag.
The game is a good even by today standards, no a single world is the same and the controls are fast and responsive. I'd say its one of the best of the library. Link is here if you're interested: https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/3784/

Playing nes games on a 3ds is really comfy for some reason, which Megaman games on that collection have you beaten already?


I've gone through and beaten them all already, usually I just sit on the couch with my mom and pull up a random megaman and start running through it while my mom watches tv


Would anyone here play games on smartphones?

I'm currently playing through this one. Later levels are quite difficult and very fun to figure it out.


I used to, but now I just use my phone for internet use and video watching.
There is a whole thread for android games if you are interested though.

Thoughts on recording gameplay and uploading it to Youtube? I've been doing this recently and it's a lot of fun. It makes things feel more official and it makes you actually pay attention. All of my videos have 0 views and I don't even tag them correctly, but something about making it public in some way increases my focus and overall makes me happy. Just played through Half-Life, a game I've been meaning to play through for 10 years now.

I want to start to record and edit little videos of different games I play on youtube. I would like to get somewhat good at editing but I'm terrified to try.

I don't even care if it's seen by anyone I'm just scared of being bad at something. I mean I somewhat care, playing vidya for a living would be cool stuff. But it's more "I want to produce something even a little creative" than "I WANT TO BE FAMOUS"


There's gratification in seeing something I made out on the internet, even if it's only for myself and nobody else ever sees it.


I recorded myself killing a boss I was having trouble with, too bad the OBS butchered the resolution and framerate. Wanted to add some sort of commentary but since I hate my voice, I just put some subtitles. I'm sure there are hundreds of videos on the same topic and better than this one, but fuck it.


I've considered uploading multiplayer footage but I'm way too paranoid.


Stream on twitch, record it. Maybe edit it and upload that on youtube. Standard operating procedure for a streamer.

No, it is just the Asian genes that help him age gracefully.
Same reason Kojima looks like he barely ages.
Though you know once he starts he is going to end up looking old in a flash.

He's immortal, remember?

Yeah it still irks me you have to pay for this. I remember playing it when it was free and it doesn't really look much better now.


i remember watching the trailer last year and got excited

i don't think i'll be able to run it, but hey maybe i can watch someone else play. that's not normally my thing, and i've never used twitch, but i remember "let's plays" from years and years ago on youtube were a decent source of gameplay for new stuff


Best new games of E3 2019. Agreed?


and what are they?


itt, discuss keyboards, mice, controllers, monitors, etc.

can anyone recommend a good wireless gaming mouse for under $50?

I have been using a wireless mouse for gaming with no problems.
Impute lag is not noticeable for it as far as I or most people can tell and it really only makes a difference in the highest level of competitive play in action games, which you are not at.


Can anyone recommend some good earphones/IEMs for under $50? Looking for decent sound and decent build quality. Bonus points for not falling out of my ears constantly.

Perhaps not the right place for this, but I didn't want to make an entire new thread.
