Any runescape players, in particular OldSchool players around?

Just curious what others think of the game, or what you're up to. I've been working on an account thats 2.1k total levels now and the game is a lil stale, I've never really dabbled in bossing or pvp and I'm mainly just an afker and skiller. Considering making an ironman or something

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.

These days it’s just like every single game is extremely high fidelity. We have more than enough resources to throw at anything now, there are almost no limitations, things are homogenized, most everything is running in Unreal or Unity engine.

It feels almost like the frontier of gaming is over, all that’s left is businessmen producing calculated slop over and over again, sequels on sequels. Devs these days aren’t building their dreams, they’re just building a paycheck.

What do you think? Was old really better or is it nostalgia

games peaked around 2006-2014
around 2006 or so a lot of games saw improvements in visuals/gameplay due to technological development but they were still underground enough to not be watered down
starting around 2013-2015 the woke mentality started to infiltrate games and they became watered down to the masses
you can still find great games outside this era, like nier automata or broodwar but they are the exception not the rule.

this is a really underrated phenomenon. when the industry is small real shit like cs1.6 or broodwar gets noticed instantly. now its harder for legit games to get attention and you don't know what's legit or what's not.

"imply put CS isn't as fun as
it was back in the day and that's just down to freedom. You can go into random servers at any point in time 15 years ago and it'd be a culture of
its own. There really is no comparison to the feeling of going into a server at three in the morning, chugging Mountain Dews, and laughing along
as the college aged kids on the server crack jokes, talk, and make your time in the server an experience."

Remember playing games from the late 90s and 2000s, thinking that it's only going to get better. Lol. After 2010 there were probably only 5 games I heavily invested in, and it's not because they were great, they were decent and I was trying to escape

are there any games you used to like, and you replayed them and realized they were bad?

shin megami tensei strange journey was in my top 5 games of all time list back in 2012 to 2018.
i replayed it this year and it's so much easier and braindead than i remembered, i think i became more skilled at turn-based games and at exploring maps and conserving MP, and this game just offers no difficulty whatsoever for me now and i steamrolled through all fights. i remember when i first played the game, horkos was so difficult that i died to him 8 times in a row. when replaying i killed him in like 5 turns. it is a simplistic game for babies. play wizardry 8 if you want a hard turn based experience.

or how about dead rising? this is another game that i considered infallible art, i bought an xbox just to play this game back in the day. when replaying its HD rerelease on PS4, all of the psychopaths are way less interesting than i remember them being, the dialogue isn't even cheezy or fun, it's just melodramatic. dead rising 2 is superior in just about every single way with much more effort put into balance and content quality and quantity. and the funny thing is, i didn't even like dead rising 2 at launch. it makes me feel like i've evolved as a person.

maybe i will add more later as i think more on this subject.

let me know if this has happened to you.

Truthfully, Red Dead Redemption II.

It's just not Red Dead Redemption. I played the first Redemption on release, and I still remember the tidbits of tales that John spoke about during the duration of the storyline
and it was nothing like Red Dead II was depicted as. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed Red Dead II although I didn't really care for the pacing and in-world law/bounty logic. Problem
is that it definitely never happened, and it is more than likely a figment of someone's imagination. Either the boy, or his father John. From what little John told in Red Dead I
it was just Dutch, Bill, Javier, and himself with Abigail. They weren't friendly, they weren't campers, they weren't allowed to browse general stores in towns. From the things he
admitted they were legitimately a roving band of psychopaths that sometimes used Abigail to help barge into places without raising suspicions too soon, and, obviously, as a human
fleshlight for when they needed it. I get it, that reality isn't exactly marketable. But going far left on the spectrum was a bit much too, in my opinion. But if you read up on
Red Dead II's production Rockstar seriously had 8 different teams make 8 different games and than mashed their favorite parts of it into what we now know as Red Ded Redemption II.

I feel it's a lazy form of game development that sadly has become the industry standard.

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?

>finish a year
2 maybe
>backlog
around 40 right now.
i don't really get mad at myself, i just play whatever i feel like.
>too much effort
no
the only game i feel i don't have time for anymore is WoW Classic, and it's because i literally don't. it's a full-time job, and i already have a part-time job IRL.
>do you still enjoy gaming
no. it's just the best cope there is, the most time consuming cope. it lets you be completely somewhere else for dozens of hours. it's better than being unconscious on heroin or dead, but i don't enjoy it.
>prove yourself
sometimes. i played rainbow six siege for years and never improved. it was a big blow to my ego. i misread even the most basic situations and get paralyzed sometimes not knowing what to do next.
dumb mexican kids are so good that they play the game professionally, yet i play for 4 years and still stress the casual matches haha.
>pride from straining yourself
i do feel pride from my WoW Classic characters. it's easier to be proud of what you've accomplished in WoW since it's actually primarily just time sunk, rather than skill or reflex. anybody can be "good" at WoW, being "good" at WoW just means you've devoted 10,000 hours to the game.
which i have.
and i feel good about that.
>skills degrading
no i've always been shit forever and stay the same level of shit.
>play stuff you don't enjoy

as far as games i want to finish? at this point i think its just ds2, pathologic and persona 5. i do get anxious about finishing games, and rarely have a long backlog

yep. probably going to slow down on vidya once i get a job in the field im studying. so i feel like if i want to get a certain level of accomplishment i need to get it in 1-2 years.
>Do you still enjoy gaming?
yes. i dont get the new rush of playing a new game anymore though
> 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?
i've played most classics besides fighting classics, mmos and some console exclusives. these days i mostly stick to league aram
>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?
not really. only when people sing praises about games that were big that i know fuck all about

Thread for games you managed to finish and your thoughts on it.


So I finished Amnesia Dark Descent yesterday. Horror is a favorite genre of mine in any media and this is a game I wanted to play for a long, long time now but several reasons, from depression to not giving a shit about games anymore, kept getting in the way. This is a spoiler free review of it.

It's the mid 1800s and you play as Daniel, a guy who went on an expedition in Africa and found something in a forgotten, ancient catacomb. The object is 'cursed' though, which prompts him to write letters to geologists, historians and anyone in Europe for help. A baron named Alexander writes back saying he can help and Daniel should go to his castle in Germany at once. You spend the entire game exploring the castle, its secrets, finding notes and letters that reveal more about the curse, the object, yourself and everything else. That's the premise of the whole thing.

As far as the story goes, it has a few nice ideas here and there but overall it's nothing too new or exciting. Here's where the magic of this game happens however. Everything this game does, it does it in an very brief, nice length measure, both with its story as well as with its gameplay. The story is fairly simple and straight forward, though you have to reach the end to realize that. It's entertaining because they didn't bloat it with any unnecessary fluff nor stretch it to pretend there's more than it actually is.

The gameplay is pretty much exploration/stealth on one side and puzzles on the other. Now, it's been a year since I played a game and I kinda had forgotten already how much video game logic there is in video games. Amnesia is particularly chock-full with video game logic. For example, during the entire game you need to keep close to light sources to keep your sanity up, but you can't just grab one of the thousands of candles or torches you find along the way, you need to use a lamp that burns oil extremely fast or keep lighting the candles with tinderboxes. Moving torches or candles is IMPOSSIBLE. Sometimes you'll need an object to solve puzzles, like using a hammer for example, but you can't use one of the several hammers you find lying around, or a rock for that matter, you need that one specific hammer you find in some other part of the map. You can't just use any iron bar, it has to be the 'right' iron bar. You can't just use any of the several jars or glasses on the floor, Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Also finished Dread. It's in the scope of Fusion, really action oriented, you really don't have to do much exploration (except if you're looking for 100% completion), you basically follow a straight line by taking elevators and teleporters. It's like a really clever conveyor belt. Gameplay is fluid, although I still fuck up when it comes to moves that uses triggers, I always mixed them up. Something I enjoy in metroids is sequence breaking or obtaining items you're not suppose to have yet and it's still possible.

I have to say i'm a bit dissapointed by the general atmosphere of the game and most importantly the lack of memorable music themes. And I also wish the Switch could do better graphically but oh well, Nintendo. Overall very great game, but I still prefer the exploration based Metroid games.

I haven't played it so I can't say, I just emulated the originals. Most of the Steam reviews (the ones that are actually over 1 sentence long and not just shitposts) seem to elaborate on the issues. It doesn't sound terrible but since it's basically just a remake with all levels from 1, 2, and DX packaged together and the physics are changed for the worse I don't see much reason to buy it rather than emulate the GCN games.

2013 is the year gaming in the west died. The shitty business practices of lootcrates and paywalls became common place, low effort quirky indie games became popular. And the government/whatever boogieman you fear, finally after nearly 3 decades of constant shitting on and denouncing of video games realized that they can shill propaganda through this medium of entertainment. Every game since has been infected by this, vidya became fully mainstream. You can argue that it became mainstream much earlier but 2013 is when it began to come full circle. Whats even worse is they are pressuring the east to conform to western standards. We have seen the glory days of vidya for sure. Its only more downhill from here.
