Come on now, there's gotta be something you're sick of seeing get over used in videogame after videogame.
Something you wish they would just stop with already.

Personally, for one, it's most modern games limiting how many weapons you can cary at any one time to just two or three.
useualy being, one small weapon, such as a hand gun, and one or two bigger guns.
This I suspect to be not for realism, but to cover for their own laziness and unwillingness to make more available weapons for the game.

It's not a big deal, but it bugs me a bit when games ask me to input a first -and- last name. I don't much like using my real name, and I'm not the type to play a Lenthly game as "Drew Peacock". I'd rather just use my online nick, since it feels more accurate than my 'real' name anyways. Last time I played a game like this I ended up going with <real first name> <online nick>, assuming characters in game might call me one or the other. Instead it ended up being both together much of the time.

Anyone who plays TF2 think that the competitive update ruined the feel of the game?

I don't like competitive multilayer, I just want to play a fun game. They just added it to pander to the CS GO children, and it has fragmented the community, because the only unranked games are community servers, and they are all either weird gamemodes, modded, or just empty.

Does anyone else here enjoy mod creation?
I've gotten into DooM mapping pretty recently. I know it's kind of old, but the lack of a true 3rd dimension makes mapping incredibly simple, so it can be done rather quickly and without much frustration.

ITT, what you're curently playing for the time being, or just finished, new or old games alike.


As is, I'm on assassin's creed brotherhood myself after having finally gotten around to playing killzone 2, which was a tad bit on the disappointing side, but works fine for a mindless shooter I guess.
AC:B on the other hand is pretty good so far I think.

I finished Uncharted for ps vita recently. It was pretty decent and made good use of the vita's various gimmicks. motion, touch, light, etc. Did get a bit annoying at times though, especially with bridge crossings that broke the flow of the game and stopped you so you could do a balancing mini game at random. Story was kind of weak but for a portable game you can't really expect much better. voice acting and motion cap was on par with the console versions, and the graphics were pretty impressive for a portable game. It's a bit of a relief that you don't fight zombies/mutants by the end of the game for a change. That said the back and forth between some character they establish as your friend, then enemy, then friend, then enemy, is kinda weird and doesn't make much sense.

I just finished the Metal Gear Solid V
Regarding all the drama about the voice actor change for snake, it's kind of retarded. Snake barely speaks during the course of the game and when they do it sounds close enough to me.
One of the reasons for the voice change might have because you don't actually play as the real snake, but some rather some copy with his memories. Which in itself was a pretty stupid and pointless plot twist. I wouldn't be surprised if the only reason that twist was there, was so people wouldn't be 'as' pissed about the voice change if there's a reason for it in the story.
Speaking of the plot, I felt it was probably one of the weakest yet. Interesting idea with the outbreak, but so much of the game felt needless and pointless by the end. This is largely due to the twist however which I mentioned before. It felt like the equivalent to ending a large passage in a story by saying it was all a dream.
It reminds me of MGS2 with ridden, but the thing is that actually went somewhere and felt like it had purpose. Like him or not Riden did still have a character ark and an actual story. The twist in this game doesn't add to the story, it only takes away from it. Rather than seeing an extra passage in the life of Big boss, you watch a copy cat recreate what big boss made, and that's about it. At first I thought maybe this was so that the Big Boss you kill in Metal gear(NES) wouldn't be the real Big Boss and instead his copy, but then it turns out The real Big Boss is going ahead with building up the real outer heaven, meaning he actually is the one you kill in the NES game after all (I'm guessing) and that makes your efforts in this game feel all that more pointless. At the end of the day you're just a fake snake building a pointless base that wont have any impact in the future time line.
That may change if Konami decides to make another meta gear game that's set between this and the NES game, but it seems like Kojima wont be involved so even if they do, I doubt it would feel like a real/cannon meta gear.

>ending a large passage in a story by saying it was all a dream
I remember one MGSV trailer had a quote from Mark Twain about anger and acid.
Here's another quote from Mark Twain: 'it's nothing but a dream, a grotesque and senseless dream, so we should dreams other dreams; better ones.'

There are actually a lot of things in TPP that are 'dreamlike' or 'like a performance'. Reality never seems to ever be a firm state for it. And then you have Ocelot literally saying Venom will hallucinate from the shrapnel.
Venom and Ocelot are brainwashed and Kazuhira is blind, the three main characters are not good sources of reality.
And you say the car physics is comical, but in Ground Zeroes they were more realistic, why would they make that change?
I suspect that maybe this was not all an ancident.

As for Venom, I liked Venom. He is literally you so if you didn't like him, think about that.

The game definitely drags in the Second Chapter, not much story progress. Most assume the game is completely unfinished, I still haven't ruled out the possibility of a ruse. For one, MGS Survive was announced but we have heard nothing from it for awhile now (I'm actually excited for it).

Paz's story was awesome, I felt genuine sadness for both Paz and Venom.

ITT: Post all of your unpopular opinions about anything related to games.
7 posts and 1 image omitted. Click Reply to view.

This is only kind of video game related but I have a theory similar to the "nostalgia goggles" phenomenon except it has to do with a game's popularity. I think, regardless of how good any "cult classic" game is, it's merely a cult classic because it was/is unpopular.

Therefore I think it's completely fair to be critical towards unpopular game fanboyism in the same way childhood games are criticized in spite of a person's "nostalgia goggles".

One of the major factors as to why any of you like games such as Mother 3, Majora's Mask, Yume Nikki, etc is because of your subconscious desire to like something different and unpopular. It's really not that much different from overlooking all of the shitty aspects of Nintendo 64 games because you remember all the good parts from when you were a kid. You overlook the game's flaws because you like how different and cool it is. fucking hipsters.

I don't hate the Water Temple in Ocarina of Time and I never did. I also liked the Longshot.
>> No. 12345 [Edit]
water temple only has bad design and is flawed when you're like 9 and don't know what the hell you're supposed to be doing.

majora's mask is hands down the best zelda game in my eyes. i feel that everything about that game improves on it's predecessor. the rest are okay. of course i haven't played any of the newer ones. oot is a close second but i can't just sit down and get into it the same way as mm. the world is really vibrant.

people have different opinions. it's part of being human.

i find koei slashers to be fun, interesting and simulating. whoa look at that i have an opinion that you guys probably don't agree with.

Nobody else played this game? I highly recommend it if you enjoy Japanese games in general.
It's got decent elements of hunting game, which Western gamers aren't so familar with, which is why I'd assume it got rather average mainstream reviews.

You get to create a waifu and use eletric-whips and the story envokes Friedrich Nietzsche's philosophies.
Just get past the delivering the hydra head mission, then the game opens up...or kind of throws you in, it won't hold your hand at all after the mission, you'll have to pay attention to what people say.

Were you ever considered a 'pro' player, ranked or otherwise amongst the best players for a particular game? What was it like? Was the community friendly or rude? Were there any interesting strategies you used?

Back in the day I used to play Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal competitively online, those were fun times.

CS:GO is designed to stroke the egos of children by making it a "competitive" game. Now if you want to play the game for fun you have to play the "casual" mode, and I bet they even named it like that as a subtle fuck you to anyone who plays it.

Valve ruined CS just like they ruined Team Fortress.

Yes but I'm at the point where I see how much bullshit is involved with everything, its just as much politics as anything else.

The best way to go "pro" right now is to stream a game with a niche audience on very regular basis and form a community around that. You can actually build a living off of your personality this way if you can connect to your viewers and grow. This also gives you opportunities outside of whatever particular experience and if you're well liked online you might have an easier time finding work within the community of the game as well. The competitive grind where you're actually trying to win tournaments can burn you out if you don't have the proper support/guidance.

End of the day its all a giant marketing gimmick to suck money out of young kids. The only games that have significant prize pools are those that have the most money injected into them by the developer. Which of course brings in all kind of fun in it own way. Without that you have to bring in "Gaming Organizations" sponsor that fuck over kids who don't know shit about contracts. Some are good but most are useless brand circle jerks that give nothing of value to the players (although I haven't been involved in ages so it could be better now, at least for top teams).

Anyway I'm a strong player in most games I play and I just stick to casual settings, competitive playlists bring out the worst in people since mindsets contrast very differently between players. Think "If I'm not winning I'm not playing" kind of bullshit instead of just playing to learn the game. Win/Lose mean fuck all in matchmaking and scrims, what matters is adapting and learning. That special ranked 1 position doesn't really get you anything except attention and sad story is that vast majority of leaderboards are illegitimate for one reason or another. Account boosting, bad MM system, legitimate cheating you name it. Yet at your average levels of play you have everybody just mad at the world trying their damnedest to win, tilting and learning absolutely fuck all from hours of daily play.

In team games its absolutely mandatory you find a stable team to play with otherwise you'll hit a skill ceiling. In solo games its all about the grinding while losing games but keeping a
