The first one has been literally unplayable on pc because some wanker fills the servers with non existent clients the hog the player slots

Xbox One version is perfectly playable, as long as you like only playing Attrition

Also Titanfall 2 steam release

There aren't any bad Doom games. Maybe bad ports. Even Doom 3 is good if you want to feel scared.

I would have loved that game to death if the titan part of titanfall didn't exist. I know there is pilot vs pilot mode, but its fucking dead, wait for an entire hour and never get into a match. Imagine going from the most kick ass movement system ever put into an fps running on walls sliding grappling all at mach 5 to… slow clunky fat fuck mech combat. What a disaster that was, and for some reason its all titafall players want to do, spam mech fights 24/7.

Maybe if your idea of scary is bumbling around in the dark not being able to tell where the fuck you or anything else is.

I spent way too much time in that game being lost or backtracking even with a map because I couldn't properly see where I was going and everything looks the same in that one.

It's already being hacked to death much like the first one.

Tetris

It is a game that I think everyone should at least play through once even if they aren't into video games.
It's so fundamental and foundational that it is a must play.
Plus it actually is quite fun when you get into it.

This saga is a masterpiece. The games are bit old, but I believe they have aged well. I think there are mods to make them look like a modern game. The dialogues are the best part of these games, they still give me chills.

I've seen these games praised for the story a lot but I still have no idea what the actual gameplay is like. I think it's some kind of isometric arpg?

Blood Omen game is kinda like 2d Zelda, but very dark and gritty, it's my favorite.
Soul Reaver 1/2 are 3d platformers/action games with some simple puzzles and a normal/spectral world mechanic (you change planes and stuff you can do as a spectre you can't do in the normal world, like going through certain walls).
Defiance kept some of the platforming from previous games but it's more combat oriented, it has different skills and combos, kinda like a Devil May Cry game, it's the first game in the series in which you control both Kain and Raziel (Kain is the dude from blood omen, Raziel that edgy looking fellow from Soul Reaver)
Then there's blood omen 2 which I never played but I've heard it's pretty bad.
All of them are decent but none excel in their own genre (gameplay-wise), there are better platformers than Soul Reaver, better hack n slash games than Defiance.
If you're planning on playing them be warned, the main focus of these games IS the plot (at least in latter games) and they're full of cutscenes, in the case of Soul Reaver 2, unskippable.
Also there was a sequel planned but it was cancelled.

Titanfall 2's mech combat system is a mess. Titanfall 1's mechs were actually consistent, and did ok with maps, but r2 just is crippling

respawn could have designed the maps to be based on positioning and perma damage but here we are with constant three lanes

In the Age of Nintendo… the gaming world was unformed… shrouded by monopoly. A land of gray consoles, Power Gloves, and Everlasting Mario Bros.

But then there was Sega… and with Sega came disparity. 8- and 16-bit… cartridge and CD… and of course… NES and Genesis.

Then, from the Genesis, They came, and found the Fads of the Nineties within the market gap.

Sonic, the First of the Hedgehogs. Miles "Tails" Prower, and his co-op AI scripting. Dr. Robotnik, and his faithful Badniks. And Knuckles the Echidna, so easily forgotten…

With the strength of Blast Processing, they challenged the Mario Bros. Robotnik's mighty Badniks peeled apart their Goombas. Tails weaved great mechanical inventions. Sonic unleashed a miasma of hip and radical. And Luigi the Gloryless betrayed his own, and Nintendo's monopoly was no more.

Thus began the Age of Sonic. But soon the fandom will fade, and only retsupurae will remain. Even now there is only nostalgia, and fans see not games, but only endless disappointments. And amongst the holdouts are seen… players of the accursed Sonic Boom…

Anyone finds the most beloved Sonic games very overrated? Not meaning that as a troll, and not taking into account what the franchise has become and its fanbase…

 No.53768

>>53766
I used to be this way, but now I've grown to appreciate them. Check out tails gets trolled and cybershell, the creativity of sonic fans makes the games fun and enjoyable. It's just cool to learn the lore and strange details and the first 3 sonic games and mania are infinitely more enjoyable than any revered mario game when you learn to roll. They might be objectively bad, but the playful spirit of sega makes them good.

I hate how cluncky and sluggish those games are and don't see how they are tolerable.
Massive imput delays and visuals not matching what is going on, and so many other things that make them the worst hack and slash games I have ever seen.
I truly don't see the appeal.

this is the journalist top games list
i actually wouldn't say any of them are must plays

imo to truly experience a must play game you must be there for it's release so you can absorb in all the hype, news, discussions around it

You tell me, I never wasted a single second reading anything from game journalists. If their lists look like mine though, maybe game journalism is not such a retarded thing as I've assumed all this years, kinda nice to know honestly.

>so you can absorb in all the hype, news, discussions around it

I prefer to form my own opinion through playing it myself without reading any garbage morons are writing about it online or elsewhere. I have a very low opinion of everyone and what they think so I would disregard it anyway, but to each its own.

95% of gameplay looks like a hack in slash where everything is in slow motion and covered in oil. Not in a good way ether.
What would you call it, a action adventure game with shit combat?
A action rpg with shit action and even worse rpg elements?

by game journalism i meant these are all top 10 list games that everyone always recommends anyway
>I prefer to form my own opinion through playing it myself without reading any garbage morons are writing about it online or elsewhere. I have a very low opinion of everyone and what they think so I would disregard it anyway, but to each its own
saying a highly rated game is a must play isn't your own opinion though, it's already been decided by the masses
also you completely missed the point, it's not to get others opinions of the game it's to discuss the game with others as you're playing it
