This is my first Yakuza game.

I am absolutely blown away by how anti-fun these boss fights are. I have never in all my years of gaming experienced boss fights so insufferable, so infuriating, so unfair.

I LOVE getting stunlocked in a single hit while the boss's combo is impossible to interrupt. Getting my control of the character taken away from me instantly and repeatedly is so immersive. Pausing five times during a boss fight to use health items really adds a nice gameplay flow. It's so awesome how the prompt for heat moves has no audio cue while being relegated to the upper right corner of the screen, nowhere near where the action is happening. And the icing on the cake is bosses who regenerate health while they are supposed to be winded, as if the Kingdom Hearts-tier health bar wasn't enough.

These game design choices don't make sense to me. I'm gonna persevere through this shit show because they got me hooked on Kiryu, Majima and the wacky side quests, but I'm going to be cursing the fine people at SEGA every step of the way for signing off on something so uniquely aggravating.

Anyway, does it get better with the other games?

I'm thinking next I will play 0, then 6, then Kiwami 2. Is that a good order?

Or if you have any thoughts about the series you would like to share, please do.

Incredible. I just threw a chair at a boss and watched it clip through his body. I guess breakdancing makes you invincible?

I try to play Elite which I dropped like 2 years ago... and they only added more grind. How is this even possible?!
It's like Frontier actually wanted to only have empty soulless grind in game. I regret paying 20 english dubloons for Horizons expansion.

There was a game parody called Progress Quest where you'd only press a button and the "game" would proceed to play itself pretending it's repeating pointless quests, filling meaningless bars and changing stats.
Elite feels exactly like that except you have to do every painful task by hand. And then in multiplayer you can lose months of arduous progress at any moment because other players armed with latest toys both in and out of game are waiting to fuck you up in the smuggiest ways possible. At least it's possible to avoid that with solo mode.

I ignored past experience because I was desperate for fun space ship things, I wanted it to be good. Visually it's still alright and audio is very good but the gameplay is so, so bad.
LARPing on forums seems to be bigger than actual in game content, maybe they're having crazy fun over there but I don't know and don't care about any of that.

I hate what CDProjekt is doing.
Their diluted RPG formula combined with their meme reputation of "the good guys" and "RPG/PC saviours" is inflicting enormous damage to the genre.
Oh I still remember how their new game was supposed to bring RPG's back closer to its pen and paper ideal. No one remembers these announcements now.
They slid back into their wide audience milking comfort zone and plebs are gobbling it all up like hungry pelicans.
Also they have one of the world's worst actors on board now. Just kill me.

They really had. They specifically picked a pnp RPG to adapt, they had an enormous budget to utilize and a lot of faithful fans (fanboys?) who would have accepted anything, even shit wildly straying from the mainstream.
They chose to squander the opportunity.

There's no reason for CP2077 it to be tied with CP2020 game anymore. Lore alone isn't enough to justify the connection. They could have slapped together their own standard futuristic setting and called it a day.

Years ago when it was announced it was supposed to have all that stuff cRPG's were known for back in the day- a blank slate player character, a wide selection of classes, deep and reasonably adapted mechanics.
Now it's trimmed down to 3 combat oriented classes tied to one defined player character. Who seems to be some uninteresting douchebag I have no business playing as, and have little hope of significantly altering the character to my liking.
It's shaping up to be just another "role" playing game, where you play the role as assigned to you by the devs. Where choice is possible only within a narrow scope of staying in-character.
In the predefined fucking character.

Have you ever wondered what lies at the very core of a traditional RPG? The most important thing which trumps everything else?
It's player agency.
Usually bound by rules of the setting of course, but within the confines of that world a player must have the full freedom of action. Actions carry consequences which shape everything about the world the players are in and so on. That's the whole point of role playing games.
It demonstrates to the players that they matter. That their will makes the game.

Went to an arcade that had a Silent Scope; Bone Eater machine. Never played one of those before, thought it was neat.

>If you're on a budget you have to be smart about what you play.
Some arcades let you pay per hour, which makes things a bit more reasonable. Doing that you can load up machines with as many credits as you want.

What do you mean? Asian people on the internet? Asian websites? Asian internet connection quality?

Cute avatars are still cute if the player is male.
There are a lot of mute players that don't use their mice or use text to speech.
And there is a surprising high number of female players I'd guess maybe 1/4.
People with voice changer also exist but are easy to recognise.
I'm mostly speaking about the Asian community, the only westerners I have as friends are Weeaboos, Koreaboos and people that learn Japanese.

Who else here prefers old video games over new?

I know people are probably sick of hearing this but I just have such incredible nostalgia for the games of the late 90s and early 2000s. It felt like every major release was something I was excited about, and they were games that other people were excited about too - Majora's Mask, Final Fantasy X, Metroid Prime, etc. Now every headline-grabbing game is yet another generic open world RPG and/or FPS, and I just don't feel like keeping up with the mainstream gaming community at all. I played 2 hours of Skyrim and it bored me to tears. Fallout 4 is such a normie thing, it's disgusting. I basically only play Nintendo games and other japanese games now.

I'm pretty excited about The Last Guardian and Shenmue 3 though, and other people are excited about those too. Gives me some hope.

I prefer newer games over older games with a few exceptions.
In my opinion most old games are only better because you played them earlier with less experience. If you play part 5 of a series it's not as fresh as part 1.
Old games often have a lot of problems like awful controls or annoying mechanics.

Squeals often have their own problems because thy try to be interesting for new and old players.

For iterative game series, such as meltyblood, what you say is true.
Every sucessive game adds a lot more things and fixes problems with the previous games, and adds a lot more overall polish and makes for a more enjoyable fighter.

But when I think of new vs old, I'm comparing Xenogears to Xenoblade Chronicles 2.
Same type of game, same genre, but very different games for very different eras.... and all I see is a gigantic leap backwards when it comes to the overall experience of enjoying the story and combat systems.

Spring 1944 is an open source World War 2 game that is inspired by Total Annihilation.

I believe so. The PS3 even provides anti-aliasing for PS2 games I think.
>> No. 13549 [Edit]
>>13547
I believe it's the majority of games with a handful of exceptions, and only the original 60GB and 20GB launch models are backward compatible. They removed that thanks to retards who kept crying about the console's price tag. The 80GB Metal Gear Solid PS3 had it via emulation but I think it was removed in a softwear update.
>> No. 13550 [Edit]
If we don't count the PC the only home console I have is the Switch so the answer is trivial.
I do plan to get the PS5 though, because it can play all PS4 games, so maybe the PS5 if you include all PS4 games.
Also old consoles and retro games are overrated.
