The first big one being, how many games do you finish a year? This is the one I really want an answer to. Getting some answers/feedback to all the others provided below would also be appreciated.

How long is your backlog? Does it feel like a burden to you & do you chastise yourself for not clearing more games that you have on the back burner? Are you like me and is it an obsessive matter that you can't shake even if you want to? Do you find anhedonia makes finishing games or working through your backlog immensely difficult? Do you even bother with a backlog?

Do you feel as if time is running out, either with your current life situation, or with society at large, and you'll never get around to playing certain games you might really enjoy? Do you ever procrastinate playing these sorts of games, even if you know you'll probably enjoy them, merely because it feels like too much effort?

Do you still enjoy gaming? Do you bother to play a lot of different games, or do you just stick to a couple old reliables & don't bother with the rest? What about the classics? Have you played them all? Do you even want to play them all? If not, don't you feel like you're missing out? Is FOMO a concern when gaming for you? Is FOMO a concern in other forms of media, like films or anime or whatever else?

Do you ever have the need to prove yourself when gaming? Does a sense of pride or validation from straining yourself ever factor into how effectively you're able to enjoy yourself? Do you care about how well you do, even if it's in a non-competitive experience like a single player game? Are you like me and, at least in a subtle way, push yourself so you can meet your own standards and therefore feel better than other people because of how good you think you are?

Do you find your skills degrading as time goes on? Are there certain genres, or games, that you simply couldn't see yourself as playing anymore?

Did you ever waste a lot of time playing stuff you didn't enjoy? Do you still find yourself doing this? If so, do you feel as if that has partially hindered your ability to derive satisfaction from the past time? Do you feel anhedonia is inevitable? If so, do you feel as if anhedonia becomes a new normal & that it will forever hang over you like a dark rain cloud, even outside of gaming?

>how many games do you finish a year?
none. can't get into them. might replay an old game for a few mins or days at most just to remind myself of something.

>How long is your backlog?

Don't have one anymore. Watched everything I want to death. Now into surfing/ pathfinding as some kind of shinto ritual thing. Have to make it my own thing. Rather, impossible to avoid.

>Do you feel as if time is running out

Only felt this when I was young, likely from parental/ society pressure. It's something most serious people realize is false.

>Do you still enjoy gaming?

Not really. They aren't on the same wavelength and heavily restricting.

>Do you ever have the need to prove yourself when gaming?

This never came up even as a kid. I just pursued whatever was fun. Eventually got fixated on 'hard' content and ran out. Only thing left is arbitrary 'sports' ways of playing in team games or speed running. It's a viable thing to pursue but I have better things going on.

>Do you find your skills degrading as time goes on?

Reaction times/ memory recall/ strategical thinking. Stuff I don't care about.

>Did you ever waste a lot of time playing stuff you didn't enjoy?

Not in the past. Sometimes now when looking around for the next thing. The anhedonia dissipates as I get closer to what I should be doing, which is rarely games.

Currently between 2 and 3 a month, been playing a lot of short games so it's not like I play so much.

>Does it feel like a burden to you & do you chastise yourself for not clearing more games that you have on the back burner?
No, I try to enjoy each game, not just rush them.
>Do you find anhedonia makes finishing games or working through your backlog immensely difficult?
No, not really, I still enjoy games.
>Do you even bother with a backlog?
I used to have a txt file with a backlog but now I just keep it in my head.
>Do you feel as if time is running out, either with your current life situation, or with society at large, and you'll never get around to playing certain games you might really enjoy?
Not really, what I feel is that I'd probably never play certain games because they either need a really demanding pc or a console which I'll never buy.
>Do you ever procrastinate playing these sorts of games, even if you know you'll probably enjoy them, merely because it feels like too much effort?
If a game is too difficult I might procrastinate a bit because I get angry pretty easily and some days I just can't put up with some games' bullshit.
>Do you still enjoy gaming?
I do, a lot.
>Do you bother to play a lot of different games, or do you just stick to a couple old reliables & don't bother with the rest?
I have a couple I go back to but usually I play a game, beat it and move on to a new one. I really like beating games I guess.
> What about the classics? Have you played them all? Do you even want to play them all?
I haven't and I don't know, maybe I will.

Does anyone here have a gamer dent? It is caused by wearing your headset/headphones on all day. I thought it was a joke/photoshop until I shaved my head and realized I have it as well and have since been having in a constant state of panic over it.

It's exactly this. I have a regular PS4. It's either 400 or 500gb or around that. If I download CoD, Destiny or any other bloated shit then I have to delete almost everything off my PlayStation. They know that people who play with friends obviously want to try and keep as many games on the console as possible because if your mates decide to all play rainbow 6 one day then you don't want to be the one guy who will have to delete some games and sit for a couple of hours while it downloads. So people buy big hard drives just to be able to play a few different games. It's fucking absurd but obviously the companies don't care whatsoever.

Thoughts on this remake? I've been having a blast with it and it brings me a ton of nostalgia too. Just wondering if any of you guys have played it but I think I'm gonna go for 100% completion too. What were your opinions on this series and which one was your favorite?
All and all it's been good so far the remake that is.

The new RPG "Disco Elysium" is coming out in a few days, is anyone else planning to get it?
Despite the huge amount of various info about the levelling system, the traits and such what is hardest to find is basic info like where the story takes place.

From what I have been able to gather it is in a retrofuturistic version of the 70's, set in an eastern-european inspired city called Ravachol (liked named after the French anarchist François Claudius Koenigstein). You play as a police detective, loosely affiliated with the militia police force which runs the law in the city. How you deal with the world around you is entirely up to you, and it seems like skill checks are extremely frequent and failing these don't always lead to negative consequences, just different outcomes.

I'd love to talk about it, especially if others plan to get it when it comes out on the 15th. I am especially intrigued by the "mind map", which is something the devs says will shape the player character. For example, focusing on particular ways of doing things may lead to the character developing OCD, and always choosing conspiracy-related topics could lead the character to become paranoid, giving different bonuses and penalties to the gameplay.

As far as gimmicks go, I think this is pretty interesting and I'm looking forward to seeing how it'll actually work. The devs have also said (in a thread on the steam forums) that the base game will be around 25 hours long just to do the main story, and at least 40 hours long for a single playthrough where you do whatever side quests you feel like.

Thoughts on this?

I played this game, probably the best game I've played in a long time. The only real complaint I have about it is that the decisions you make don't really end up influencing the world very much. After I completed the game I went online to read about other endings and options at various points and it seems that things mostly happen the same way no matter what you do. Although, this might have been intentional by the creators of the game, showing that the character thinks he is all important and the choices he makes matter a lot, when in reality he doesn't really matter much at all.

 No.50900

>>50866
I'd say the game is less about the destination and more about the journey. The main character himself can really develop in different ways over the course of the game so his place when you finally reach the ending is up to you.

i want to play GTA IV really bad, but it's just such a pain in the ass to get it set up and it might take several hours of troubleshooting and trying to install mods only for it to still not work at all. i really don't know if it's a can of worms i'm ready to open yet.
i was also thinking of doing STALKER SoC, but same story there, i read the readme file for the Zone Reclamation Project and yawned. i don't give a fuck about your 15 step process bitch! bitch!

you know something i've always wondered is WHY DON'T THESE RETARDS PUT PRE-PATCHED, PRE-MODDED SHIT UP ON TORRENT SITES?

what the fuck? i remember new english patches coming out for shin megami tensei games coming out, and instead of giving me a pre-patched ROM, i have to go get some software and patch it myself, are you kidding me dude? just put the pre-patched shit up in the first place.

you know what i'll do instead of jumping through hoops like some animal? i'll just not fucking play it. ahahaha seriously. if i have to do more than 15 minutes of installation, if i have to watch youtube guides or whatever, i'm not playing it!



>"hey dude i got this list of MUST HAVE mods!"

oh yeah? zip em up for me dude, i'm ready to have a go.
>"no dude, you have to go to 17 different websites and install them yourself. ETA 6 hours. oh by the way, you have to get this specific version of the game. yeahh, so you have to take your file of the game, install the official update from the official site, then, install this fan update that brings it to version .9, then install this complete overhaul update. then you can start installing all the mods on my list."
how about instead of having me do all that shit you just upload it pre-patched and pre-modded and ready to go? why are you having people download useless versions of the game?
>"WTF DUDE GO BACK TO CONSOLE YOU'RE SO LAZY JESUS. btw there's a 10% chance that even after all that work that the game might just refuse to run if you're on windows 7 or 10."

this "strawman" is unironically the current state of Battle for Middle Earth 2 Age of the Ring mod.

Let me guess, you spent all that on a computer but you pirate games and complain that sometimes the downloads are shady, the installer doesn't work right, parts of the game were corrupted, or that the version you got was a unoptimized mess.

99% of the games I get through steam and similar services quite literally just work even on my mid budget "gaming" laptop.
The only time I ever really have to deal when the shit you are describing is when I am pirating games. When pirating dealling with all that bullshit is the cost of getting the game for free. You ain't dealing with incentivized professionals. They have no reason nor incentive to hand hold you, make things easy, or even not to do something malicious. Especially torrents. I always treat torrents with the highest level of suspicion and scrutiny. Some of the nastiest attacks and malware I ever had to deal with were from torrents.
At least with direct downloads they are just link shilling and the like to get their payoff. So they have less of a reason to mess with you other then mild inconveniences.

With actual payed option you pay money and you get premium service. Plain and simple. No fuss, few if any problems, and if you do end up with a problem there is someone who is actually payed to personally take time out of their life to help fix it.
