Did Deus ex predicted future ?A game release 2 decade ago predicted so much about future.

Were old games better?I think there is just something “magical” about old games, like someone’s great ideas put in to the limitations of a early 2000s game engine that was handcrafted by a passionate nerd. I think limitations and those unique oversights/bugs were really what spawned great games.
My current setupLook at those two beauties, with a brand new case. The XP looks awesome in that white case.
speedrunning wizardsDoes anyone here speedrun video games? I think it's maybe the one thing I'm good at, but it's not very useful in real life and the only people who find it impressive are other speedrunners. I don't like how casuals gamers view speedrunning as just glitching or cheating the game, or somehow trying to claim that playing the game that way is "wrong".
Respecting the playerWhy do developers no longer respect a player's time? When did it become acceptable to bog everything down in immense amounts of grinding to unlock basic content? Rogue likes where you spend 20 hours unlocking different weapons just so you can get lucky and find a good one to finish the game. Long in engine cut scenes where you hold forward while 10 gig of audio files play at you. What happened to just making a decent couple of hours game play?
Interesting video game videosI'm looking for Youtube channels or just single videos which provide detailed analysis about the story/gameplay/game design/whatever of video games or just interesting theories, facts and other stuff like that. I don't really know how to explain it any better so I'm just gonna link a few examples.
Buying a gaming laptopWhat to consider when choosing a gaming laptop? I've looked around some guides and have a vague idea, but I'd like to get some thoughts from experienced gamers. There's so much to choose from. I've been wageslaving for two years to save up for this and I really don't want to mess up. My budget is about 1500 usd, maybe a little more.
GraphicsI'm just not really impressed by graphics leaps anymore.
Visual Novels ThreadWhich visual novels have you enjoyed lately, wizzies? For me, I'd say my top VN's were Yume Miru Kusuri (only got one ending, am planning on picking it back up in the future) as well as "Our Lost World Beneath the Skies". I'm still looking for that VN that I can give a 10 on in Vndb, which I'm going to reserve for just one.
Console or PC?Should I build a PC or buy the PS5? I don't play too many games but I'd like to play more.

Just some random questions, some feedback to which would make me feel less alone.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.
“Skill-based matchmaking”I've been trying new genres of games and as a lower skilled player the only thing that allows me to try these games in multiplayer is SBMM. I've tried games in the same genre without it, and the difference of what my true level is is palpable. I've been reading forum threads to see what the normies think about it. And one thing I've learned is that the type of gamers who post on forums, are usually not your typical average gamer, but more hardcore just to care enough to post. So often their complaints might be the opposite for a casual noob like me, and actually be to my benefit.

Games You Wish Were Not CanceledHello everybody, in this thread I would like you to talk about games you kept an eye on but eventually got canned. Not just (potential) masterpieces, just titles that stirred your interest for one reason or another. Here's mine:
PSP puzzle games/ improving intelligence with video gamesI'm such a low IQ subhuman. I fucking hate myself. I want to die.
Games with communitiesOver the last few days I've been reading up on World of warcraft drama. Different guilds which fell apart (often due to succubi) and how various guilds fell from grace and disbanded. It reminded me of a time when guilds were a thing and people made friends with randoms in game and adventured together. It's made me wonder if any games exist today which still have a social aspect at all. Has discord destroyed in game communities and text chat to the point where it's possible?
want to play games but don't because installing them is too big of a paini 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.
games you used to like, but don't anymoreare there any games you used to like, and you replayed them and realized they were bad?
Dragon Court and Star DartI remember I used to go to this site called 'ffiends'/"Fred's Friends" or something like that that had a bunch of cool games like Star Dart, Dragon Court, Bugz, etc.. I can't find it anymore. Anyone else remember this? Are all the sites now dead? Are they really gone forever?
How to get back into enjoying videogamesI've started to feel like playing games are a choir now for the past 2 or 3 years. Downloaded Day of Defeat: Source again to play a little but I know I'll eventually get tired of it. After that, I'll enter another cycle of finding a videogame that fills the void inside of me that reminds me that I'm that my hobbies I've enjoyed as a kid and a young teenager have passed. I think what I'm trying to say is how to do you deal with this situation and is it really possible to find other hobbies if you have the attention span of a gerbil.
Movie Based GamesDoes anyone else enjoy playing movie based games? They are usually really short and easy to play, but it feels rewarding beating games so I always liked them. Toy Story 3 is an example of a really good movie game. Most of them are pretty shit though compared to real games. So does anyone have any recommendations for games based on movies?
Games you're currently playingI may have burned myself with this one. I wanted to explore every single nook and cranny of this game without any faqs and I have been doing just that. 80 hours in though, and I'm tired of the game and there's at least 4 other bosses and a whole area left to explore (that I know of). I really should have finished the game first and then do this heavy exploration on the second run, then I would have at least seen the ending. Another thing making it harder to continue is that I built a pure mage for this run as all the other Souls games I made the same characters over and over again (guy with a sword that rolls around, pyromancer guy, the usual) and wanted something completely different. This build though means I pretty much can't get a single hit in any boss as all of them can one easily one hit me. The only way I can beat them is to know inside out every move they have and it can get pretty boring doing the same boss 30 times. I know if I take a break I'll just forget about it and never come back to it.
MOBA with no friends?IDK much about MOBAs other than they were the peak genre a couple of years back. I used to really enjoy RTS especially the combat. And I understand that MOBAs grew out of the hero battles from Warcraft 3. So I thought this would be the best one for me, since I know the Starcraft and Warcraft characters.
Goddamn VidyaGoddamn guys my tastes are really messed up right now. It happened before, I played vidya all my life at some points I was fed up with games, I couldn't bring myself to play anything, I saw them as boring and repetitive. Then after some time (my dopamine receptors recovered) I started playing them again. I have been catching up on games, I have a bunch of them that I can still run on my pc, the newer ones I just stack on an external hard drive. I like the stories, I'm finishing the mass effect trilogy rn, it's really nice. Now I think you all know of the TLOU2 sjw bullshit, I was looking forward to that game and now it's ruined by progressive agenda. After I moved on from this game, I saw on a ps4 sale the Order 1886 and Watch Dogs 2. Then I watched some reviews, showing how the order is short, 7 hours (1/3 cutscenes, 1/3 walking and talking) and shotgunners are op. But I wanted to play a game in that setting with those graphics and killing enemies and creatures with cool weapons. Then I saw how cringe the characters of Watch Dogs 2 are, how shitty the story is and I saw the feminazi antagonist and the masked gamer. But I love the setting, I would have explored SF just like I did with Los Angeles in GTA. I wanted to be creative with hacking and using non lethal approaches. But both games have been ruined for me. I refunded them, I paid 14$ for the Order and 20$ for Watch Dogs. Now I feel empty, sad that I'm missing out on these three games. Oh, and Borderlands 3 is also cringe with its characters but that one wasn't something I was really excited about. So I'm not saying I have no other games, it's just that watching opinions on YouTube over games that I want to play is ruining my enjoyment for vidya in general. Take Dragon Age for example, I like how Inquisition looks (again after watching reviews) but I couldn't finish the second one, because it was so repetitive and the dungeons were recycled over and over again. The first one had such low graphics, clunky movements and poor gameplay I couldn't play more than one hour. Now I know Bioware, I know I have to experience all three games to understand the lore and my choices, but I don't think I can play these two games again. I don't know what to do, I feel so empty. I feel like I'm missing out, but I have a lot of games to play, I have to be somewhat picky. I don't have a lot of time, I'm a wage slave so I can't just "play all of them brah". I bought WD2 on ps4 because I don't think my pc will run it that great. Every response is welcome, thanks for your help, this is the only place I can talk freely about this.
among us wiz edition 1There's an unvirgin(impostor) among us!
Souls GeneralCan 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.
Flash games are gone by 2020http://bluemaxima.org/flashpoint/downloads/
Indie/doujin/modsThis are my favourite kinds of games. Really cheaply made games, often free or very cheap, that you can tell were made for love not profit. The kind of things you see for free on sites like Itch.io, the fanwork games sold at Reitaisai or Comiket, the silly, cheap mods of larger games like TF2's mario_kart or trade_plaza, the gaming world's equivalent of the music world's "lo-fi", essentially. While I'll enjoy AAA games and big budget releases, cheap and obscure games will always be my favourites.
Good Shovelware GamesWhat’s a shovelware/shitty licensed title that you like even though it’s bad? For me it’s probably Garfield’s Fun Fest for the DS. I have a lot of fun replaying it, and I like the Garfield health mechanic with you needing to find food to keep garfield alive as his health slowly ticks down.
