Don't you hate how even an idiot can complete a hard game by simply Googling it?
That's the problem nowadays, it's not that games aren't hard, it's that it is too easy to look up the answers.

I'm the stupidest stupid that ever stpuded on this stpuid planet stupid so it's pretty convenient for me. I try and work out a puzzle myself first, really try, and if after repeated attempts I can't solve it I look up a solution.
Or I google it if I don't want to deal with it. I always broke many rules gamers held sacred but... eh, whatevs. It's a game, not a test.

Games and tests are quite similar, both ask you to solve the problem presented.
You might be too used to looking up the answers, like how modern humans are used to technology and wouldn't be able to start a fire or skin an animal.

MGS2 is my favourite game. I wish he kept playing it weird even if it alienated some people. The third one was supposed to feature permadeath and restarting the game if you died. I also hate that the ending of 4 was changed because of bad first response to it.

Me too man.
But I don't think Kojima himself cared much for it, seeing as he personally tries to forget it exists (Ground Zeroes Deja Vu mission, the MGS2 logo is hidden behind a sign you have to physically destroy to see, then Miller says 'Snake's polygons' instead of Raiden's even though Raiden is the main character).
You see, people forget (because nobody ever reads the credits) that MGS1, 2 and 3 had another writer by the name of Tomokazu Fukushima, and he is solely credited as the 'Codec Script' writer. All other Metal Gear games do not feature him as a writer.

You may or may not have noticed it, but MGS1, 2 and 3 had a specific kind of anti-Americanism, it wasn't a direct attack but a sort of acknowledging that 'might makes right' (America being the mightiest) even if that 'right' isn't what is good.
When Fukushima leaves Konami (after MGS3), the theme disappears.

But yeah, that's business. Can't help that most people are intolerant of philosophy.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time or Super Mario Galaxy.
Both games had an emotional impact on me, Ocarina gave me a sense of wonder and adventure. I was mesmerized when I first stepped out to Hyrule Field because before that I played Wind Waker. In that game I saw a place I wanted to see more of outside of the castle area but I couldn't explore it until I played Ocarina of Time and I stepped out into a vast area I just wanted to see and know more of. It gave me a sense of wonder and adventure so few games ever give me.

Super Mario Galaxy was another one, it also gave me a sense of wonder to see so much creativity go into a portrayal of space like what I saw. There was also another character who I admired for years and have a lot of respect for, which is probably why some people thought she was my waifu.

Both games rest in my collection and my memories as very well-loved favorites.

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.

>why you want and/or expect someone else to put the time and effort to answer all your questions
I don't know, I just decided to throw the post out there in the hopes that somebody would give me an answer.

>Even if ignoring the previous statement, wouldn't asking this on a board or forum dedicated to TF2 be a better idea? You disagreed with most of the advice you found, so it's likely you actually might be the most acquainted user in this site regarding that game.
I've kind of tried that already and it's mostly met with expectations of the Pyro player (me) simply "gitting gud" and complete dismissal of circumstance, the knowledge other players may have, map design, number of players on one team, skill stacking, greater numbers on another team, and quite simply thinking that skill is the one and only factor that determines the outcome of a match.

>I find odd that you mentioned this. What gave you the notion others might think that?
I had a reason for why I mentioned this but I forgot. I guess just because it was true and nothing more.

>In that case, why not just go with the good ol' Doc? When I used to play it was rare for the match to load with someone already a medic.
I did that a lot of the time and Medic got pretty boring after a while. In my experience what was equally, if not more, rare was an Engineer on the team so sometimes I had to play to fit the role.
Though when I did get bored of Medic I found myself realizing that the character was well thought out in the sense that you actually start to feel like the Medic after a while, having to babysit the team and hope they actually do something.
>> No. 12673 [Edit]
First and foremost:
You need to have competition at the level you're at. A friend who's equally ass, or an active online community.
After that, it's all about three things: knowledge, execution, and strategy. Understand that strategy is what ties knowledge and execution together to produce wins. The idea is that at each level, you'll go deeper in all of these categories.
Also, you should always play the coolest character. That's really important. And don't be discouraged by how hard fighting games are, or by how long it takes to get your first victory. They're pretty hard.

>From complete ass to newbie
Understanding
1) Basic universal mechanics: blocking, hit levels, throws, movement, parry/focus attack/faultless defense/etc...
2) Know your character's moves. It's just stuff like "this is a low kick" and "this is a fireball". You don't need to read frame data.

Execution
1) Learn to jump and dash.
2) Learn to not jump. It's easy jump back when you intend to block, but of course, that's a free hit for your opponent.
3) You really have to be able to do fireballs. Anti-air shoryukens are something even pros miss. Don't mind.

Rainbow Six: Vegas is pretty tacticool. Though it starts out very generically (I mean, god-damn generically), once you meet up with your squad it gets much better.

Door-breaching, rope-breaching, flash-and-clear et cetera. Enemies also only take one to two shots to kill, so single-fire is actually useful like it would be in real life. You also can't take many shots before being killed either, so working with the squad is important.

I fell for the RS:S meme, and honestly it paid off. It was quite fun and challenging, until operation health.

The pre Vegas games are dated fps games. You might like them but there is no real reason not to start with Vegas
>> No. 12641 [Edit]
I picked up Six Vegas many years back even though I've never been a big fan of the more grounded military games and instead aim for over the top ridiculous ones instead at best. I thought it seemed like an interesting setting for such a game however, and when I played it I went with hard mode (almost always normal here) where I think it was one shot and you're dead. It was challenging and not something I was used to, but it wasn't half bad. Couldn't really follow along too well with the story since it seemed to tie in with other games, but it was decent enough as it was. I'm still curious though what exactly happened in this game's world that caused all none dodge cars/trucks to vanish.

I don't know if it's because I played it right after Vegas 1, thus still having it fresh in my memory, but Vegas 2 went in the wrong direction, I felt.

Being able to control a female Operator in a tank-top is neato, but the game-play itself took a more arcade turn.
The AI seemed to get stuck more often and moved slower (because they cover each other, even though it was useless for me). The areas you go to seemed to be made as 'interesting' as possible as opposed to as authentic as possible (malls, convention areas, Caribbean holidy homes etc). The enemies too often spawned-in as opposed to just being there like they should be if they were terrorists holding ground. Then there was that utterly boring bit you go solo and it seemed to want to be Splinter Cell. And then there was a freaking Boss Battle with a fucking helicopter!
And maybe it was just because it had a longer campaigne, but it seemed there were less civilian hostages to save than Vegas 1.

Over-all, it is either less tacticool or more forgiving of guns blazing. I like arcade-ish games, but Vegas 2 was neither here nor there.

The SNES classic launches tomorrow, who here is looking forward to it, what games are you planning to play first? I'll be camping outside Best Buy the following morning, if you happen to be going to the same store as me maybe we can talk to pass the time before the store opens, I'm going to the Best Buy in Santa Rosa California, hope to see you there.

It's just a cute looking case for a simple SNES emulator. I'd rather play SNES and much more on the go with the GPD XD (which also can easily display on a TV through HDMI).

For the ergonomic feel I'd just get a cheap usb snes type controller, or an used true snes controller and an adapter.

Hex-tile combat and exploration, open-ended and generally a decent time waster if you don't mind simplicity. I got slightly enthralled by its fictional world and now I wish it would have more progression and more connected quests, but for its file size and its price (zero) I can't complain.

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.

Super Mario Galaxy.
It had so much creativity poured into it, the cinematic feel of the cutscenes was amazing to me, the music was simply beautiful, and at the end of it all it was fun to play too. Running and jumping through space was so enjoyable to me and I loved messing around with gravity and seeing what I could do, trying to make Mario orbit around smaller celestial bodies with a long jump was so funny to watch when I got it right.

It also featured one of my two favorite characters from all of fictional media.

I didn't really like the sequel quite as much simply because it had Mario going through 2D sidescrolling and the story didn't feel like it was as important, like the game didn't take itself seriously and I missed that with the first game. The main hub was kind of boring too, not a whole lot to explore and see. Just a single planet rather than the various sections of the observatory that I liked to look at.

I loved both Mario Galaxys but they are too easy and I honestly cant think of a way to make them harder without adding in cheap deaths.
I'd love if they made a multiplayer game where you have to run through all the levels against another player with rewards for exploiting gravity. The most fun part of Mario Galaxy is definitely messing around with the different gravities
