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.

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.

There is one arcade in my area that is a bit beaten up and almost vacant most of the time. All of the arcade machines there are from the mid to late 90's and early 2000s. I try to go there as much as I can but I barely have the means to get there anymore. By some miracle of god, they have a DDR machine there, and I'm surprised they kept it considering that that it's almost never used. Maybe they forgot about it. They also used to have and Initial D machine but they got rid of it for some odd reason.

Fate/Grand Order is now 4 years old! And four years on, the game has proven to be one of the most successful Japanese mobile games out there.

In its four-year run, Fate/Grand Order has become the No. 2 ranked mobile game for global revenue at US$84.3 million. It has also become an international success, being one of Japan’s highest selling apps in terms of revenue. It even defeated Fortnite as the most tweeted game of 2018!

Melee buffs sound fun but will it work? In aRPGs, missile combat is better than melee too easily.
>> No. 13512 [Edit]
>>13498

You would think, but skills like Cyclone that fuck with enemy pathing AI, and movement skills like leapslam really change that dynamic -- the monsters walking in circles and not attacking (or swinging at empty space) gets to the same goal as staying out of range and killing them before they get to you.

Outside of bonkers uniques and high %damage AND +X-Y physical damage yellow weapons, physical skills are generally very much lacking compared to spells.
I think there really needs to be some sort of stabilizing to the physical weapons, make things using starforged less stupidly overpowered and make SSF to level 100 with a weapon-based character less stupidly underpowered.

Bows are in a bit of a better place than melee weapons in that regard, but that issue is still there to a good extent.

Problem is that a lot of action RPGs is based on D&D where spells overpower melee. Fighters in japanese RPG tend to have more "impossible" moves that mimic spells.

I just finished Nioh. Or the vanilla new game, anyway. I do plan on continuing into New Game+++ and the DLC and shit of course, which seems to be a lot better than the normal game from what I've heard.

It's my favorite game of all time. It definitely has some problems, most notably the poor music (none of the bosses have a unique theme) and cutscene budget (the final cutscene was disappointingly cheap), magic being overpowered and boring, and the loot system … also being boring. But these latter issues seem to be fixed in NG+ so I'm very excited to get into the actual game here now.
Last problem I can think of that I have with the game is that there isn't enough incentive to wear Light armor. I went through half the game using light armor and it was insane, you die in one hit. Which is good in some ways. I really like seeing a game make armor actually fucking matter. I am tired of games like Dark Souls where there is little noticeable difference between wearing heavy plate armor and running around fucking naked. The difference is definitely noticeable here.
But I don't feel like Nioh got the armor right, either. There just aren't enough benefits to wearing light armor. Ki (stamina) is the only big bonus you get for wearing light instead of heavy armor, with the exchange being dying in one hit to even random encounters, and it just isn't enough of a trade off. I never have a problem with ki management even using an ax and the heaviest armor in the game. I would have really butted heads with the devs over balancing this had I been there with them…

But I guess that is just kind of nitpicky. There are people who make the light armor work, it is actually seemingly the most used armor class for some reason? Maybe I am just severely retarded.

I'm a big fan of Team Ninja and Monster Hunter, you can really see the Ninja Gaiden influence everywhere, of Japan, Asian history, and demons. This game is kind of like a wet dream.
I went into the game blind and didn't know what to expect and as soon as I saw the opening cinematic, I was hooked.

When I heard that the main game is over 100 hours long, I was very scared that I had made a mistake buying it.
I cannot stand the Souls' series for releasing unfinished games. I am a content creator mys

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've only played the original for ps2 and am still currently playing 0. I've found 0 a tad repetitive in terms of combat, but the massive amount of side content makes up for that from mahjong to slot car races. It's also stupidly long with cinematic so long and so frequent they put metal gear to shame.
As for the original, I don't remember much about it. I think it didn't have much in terms of side content and was more focused on the story. I think it dragged a bit but wasn't necessary too boring, and I did manage to sit though it to the end. Played it via emulator because fucking hell the original copies are over priced.
>> No. 13577 [Edit]
I played 0 on PC and it was the most fun I've had playing a video game since I was a kid. It rejuvenated my interest in video games enough for me to get a PS4.

Yeah, Kiwami is trash. Kiwami 2 and 6 are kinda meh.
