Well, there's a 3x3 thread on /an/ and I thought it would be interesting to see what video games you guys like.

These are some vidya I've enjoyed.

Yakuza series, Fallout series, VTM:B, Deadly Premonition, Valkyria Chronicles, GOD HAND, No More Heroes, Red Orchestra & its mods, Max Payne

>I found EO2 to be the worst by far
This is also pretty true of its 3DS remake, sadly. Class imbalance is still an issue, and most monsters have inflated HP from the original just to account for the broken amounts of elemental damage the Fafnir can output.

You have a nice list too.
If you like old RE and RPG combat, you'll like it. Wasn't really a fan of the first one but I really like 2. Atmosphere is nice too. Haven't played it in a long time though, so nostalgia goggles play a heavy role.

>>12433
As dungeon crawlers SMT games are way below EO, dude.

>there's no style, no atmosphere, the sprites are ugly as sin pokemon garbage, nothing that makes it stand out.
It has style and atmosphere, imagination is just a big part of it. The music is pretty fucking great too. I'm not a fan of the enemy designs myself but it's not that important to me.
The portraits are cute though and add to the charm.

The same guy who did the soundtrack for EO did the soundtrack for Revenge of Shinobi and Streets of Rage which are my two favourite game soundtracks.

Do you guys do much game emulating?

I just found out recently my laptop can actually handle some ps2 games decently. Over the past few days I've been playing P3fes at 2x rez with a widescreen patch, and getting a mostly consistent 60fps. (and yes I own a legitimate hard copy of the game before anyone complains.)

I started during late 90's (Nesticle days), but it was only quite recently that I got a gear powerful enough to run some emulation's current state of the art. As someone whose only consoles were NES and N64, emulation has allowed me to enter a beautiful world I could only see from afar for many years.

By now I rely heavily on emulation, either on my laptop or on my GPD XD (or the combo, by means of streaming). I use Snes9x Ex+, ePSXE, PPSSPP, Drastic, Muppen64 PLus AE, PCSX2 and Dolphin without issues. I can run Citra alrigth, but nothing there really interests me. I've tried Xenia, but it turned out to be too much for my GPU. I've also been using Cemu for a while and recently became a patreon, afer watching their outstanding work with BotW (apart from the fair performance, they already made possible to play it undubbed, the only way I wanted it).

I play mostly NES and SNES games since they're easy, and I only really play them at times when I would be do nothing else
I recently tried emulating smash bros brawl on Dolphin, but I could never get >8fps, is this because I'm doing something wrong, or is it because my computer is total garbage?
>> No. 12482 [Edit]

Your computer isn't total garbage. Gamecube and PS2 emulation require very, very high end hardware to get playable frame rates. The emulators just aren't very efficient.

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.

I believe you were supposed to go do most of side quests and such for xp/equipment before leaving that area, else the next areas have a steep difficulty curve and you have to resort to cheese tactics to kill stuff.

>which is why I'd assume it got rather average mainstream reviews.
It got pretty decent reviews. Very few sites gave it below 80%. There's that one asshole who claimed it's a "4.8/10" game but he's wrong.

I'd say 8/10 is a perfect rating for it. Dragon's Dogma has it's flaws but it's a really fun game.

I ran a Magic(k) Archer, which was my favorite class, on my first playthrough and subsequently a Mystic Knight. I wanted to make an Assassin but I abandoned that run and traded it in. I'd like to play it again.

The pawn system was something I really appreciated. Mine was a Strider named Moth for the first two playthroughs.

Technically it's a xbox 3.2 not 4, but with the changes it has it should be a whole different gen system.

I haven't had a console since the 360 (I know, I know, I was going to get the PS3, but I thought I'd 'try the other side' that gen. I regret it.) so most of the releases that might interest me are irrelevant. Ace Combat 7 seems kind of neat, but it's a cinematic trailer and the series has been in decline for a while now so it's cautious optimism. I haven't seen any releases, but the Thrustmaster Booth is showing betas for the DCS: F/A-18C and AV-8B which should also be interesting. Thrustmaster themselves are also announcing a new collaboration with Eagle Dynamics which might mean an F/A-18C stick to the same level of finish as the Warthog stick. i.e basically usable as a spare part for the real deal, and waaaaay above my budget

Anyone picking up Dark Souls in a couple weeks?

I don't have a PS3, so I never played Demon's Souls, but the difficulty and its supposed fairness, plus the great combat made me interested in the game. Pretty much the same reasons Monster Hunter attracted me. I'm watching a let's play of Demon's Souls to get an idea of what I'll be up against so I'm not completely blind when going into Dark Souls. I'm almost thinking of buying a one or three month pack subscription for Xbox Live to get the full experience.

Miyazaki didn't produce Dark Souls 2, so 3 is a direct sequel of 1.

controlls and handling is spot on, minor issues with the camera on rare occasions (no pun intended), but what I have issues with mainly is the level layouts/designs, some of the lighting/shadow work is a bit ugly at times, and the music feels very uninspired. Overall the game is 'okay' and is no where near as insulting as Nuts&bolts was. Still, You know what I think the game is missing? Center pieces for the levels. The best levels in the original game all had very memorable centerpieces that the levels were built around. Rusty bucket bay's ship, mad monster mansion's mansion, clanker in clanker's cavern, witchy world's circus tent, etc
yooka-laylee's first world on the other hand is just piles of rocks everywhere and a hollowed shell of a temple at it's center, there's absolutely nothing memorable about any of it's design I felt.

To give an idea of what I mean, when I park my car at work I usually do so in front of a lamp post, if not then near it. That's because it serves as a clear cut reference point you can use to judge your distance, speed, etc.
Likewise some of those centerpieces in those old banjo games made for good reference points. If you get lost at any point you could just make your way back to the massive snowman, crocodile, or pyramid in the middle of the level. yooka-laylee on the other hand just has piles of rocks... the maps so far feel a bit convoluted, especially the second level/world.
In the case of the music it's kind of the opposite issue and is more of them copying the original style too closely and not doing anything different/original. Rather than sounding like something new, it sounds like the music from a handful of banjokazooie levels mixed together. While playing the first level of yooka-laylee I couldn't stop thinking that it sounded like a mix of mumbo's mountain and the Cloud Cuckooland. Second world has a very nice/charming melody but not a memorable one. Keeping in tune with the original is all well and good, but you gotta bring something new to the table.

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
