Until recently I haven't had much time for videogames, now that I do I've been knocking out games in my backlog one after another while occasionally dipping into old favorites. There has been a growing concern however about how long I can keep doing this. At a glance one would think there's multiple life times worth of videogames on the market, but what about worth while games when you remove all the shovelwear and half broken indie trash? I don't have issue playing older games, including those that are too new to be retro but also too old to be relevant (think wii/ps3 gen games), I'm not trying to impress anyone after all and couldn't care less about social trends.
Net games are certainly one option, but they're unbelievably repetitive with their content being very spread out (if they even have any), they also involve a social element that can be a bit off putting for an anti-social person. people spend weeks if not months playing some of these games, fighting the same type of matches over and over with friends or random strangers, that might work for them but I can't stand that and have always been a single player person.

Unfortunately the industry has been shifting away from single player games for some time now and in general it feels like there has been less and less quality content is being produced due to small and midsize production companies being cannibalized by larger companies who themselves seem only interested in continuing their one or two best selling game franchises. Someone new to videogames might find it hard to believe companies like activision, ubisoft, and EA used to actually produce a variety of decent games along side smaller companies for a healthy and vibrant ecosystem, and god do I miss those days.

Sure, there's enough videogames out there now to last a person like me a few years, but then what? What about in ten or twenty years? I worry about the day when I've played every (not garbage) game on every system and am left with nothing new to explore or learn. I can't help but feel like being 40+ is going to be insufferable.

I worry about not having enough time and life to play all the good videogames out there, I don't see how you can end in the opposite. I discover interesting retro games every week, there's always something being translated or just unknown. And I replay a lot.
Today most games are really long, they take 100+ hours and I can't even keep the interest for that long. I end playing few games per year, something like Yakuza, The Witcher, Disgaea, can take me a whole summer easily.
I don't touch on-line games. Last on-line games I played intensively were Diablo 2 and Neverwinter Nights, I don't feel any motivation to play on-line anymore.
Thinking about it, for one reason or another I haven't even properly played games I really wished to play in late 90's. 20 years ago.
I will surely die without playing some of them. It's kinda depressing.
>> No. 14210 [Edit]
Oh god I'm in the same situation literally. Rarely good games with a lore, often I get bored (without solution) playing the same three games (the old battlefields for example and everytime the same rts I've been nerding since I was born) which every two years change

Sorry for necrobumping. Do you have a source on Alan Watts saying that? I looked it up and couldn't find anything relevant. People seem to have contradictory opinions on how Americans perceives death. Some say we hide it too much and pretend it's not part of life.

Which everybody who read the vn universally agrees is generic shit that misses the point.

The difference between this and Hatoful Kareshi is that the author of Hatoful wasn't completely clueless about what they were doing and thus could make something that was good in its own right, beyond just being a joke. DDLC isn't really any different than the millions of Western Speed Racer parodies or any other attempt at deconstruction by people only just slightly more informed about whatever it is they're trying to "deconstruct" or "parody" than your average suburban mother might be.

I don’t know why it’s always speed racer, considering gatchaman, Tetsuwan Atom and a localization of Macross aired quite a bit decades ago. I don’t think Speed Racer is even that popular in that time period! I also think those parodies are more focused about the low budget dubbing, poor animation seen in TV anime at the time and sometimes strange localization decisions.

Polite sage although I do have to say that the game itself was fine for what it is. The creator being pretentious has nothing to do with a fun little distraction although I will say that it seems odd to make a VN parody in this day and age considering most otaku play mobage more these days.

>I don’t know why it’s always speed racer,
While that's for some reason the majority, I've seen sailor moon get parodied and made fun of a lot. Probably because it was strange and unusual at the time, and the people who make fun of that stuff never learned how to move on. I suspect there's a lot of ignorance mixed in with these people who are likely out of touch and think outdated trops from 40-50 years ago still apply. Which is why the same people who make fun of speed racer and sailor moon are likely going to claim all anime is tentical rape filled harem shit. Dragonball was far more popular and culturally relevant to the west, but you wont see people make fun of that half as much because it's been deemed socially acceptable to be a fan of that. I'd guess comedians and writers likely don't want to piss people off by taking shots at something people love, so they go for easy targets.

As for the topic, fuck DDLC.

After a longer break our group has resumed meeting up regularly. Our new meetup time is 22GMT on Sundays. If any of you are interested drop by on IRC; the overwhelming majority of games we play is so easy the rules can be explained 5 minutes before the game.

By my count it's been 13 weeks since we set the new time and we managed to play something on 12 of those so we're doing pretty well. We've played over 25 different board games by now. Don't be afraid of the new kid on the block syndrome, we don't play anything that's too complex to explain right before the game.

Not sure if I'm not just replying to the person who drew that to begin with but here goes anyway.
Since most of the games we play are new to almost everybody in the group there are times when there's a lot of downtime for other players because somebody is thinking about their options or plain confused about some rules. That's inevitable with new games. Eventually we'll get past that point when people will familiarize themselves more with the games. For now we can be grateful there are some ways of killing that downtime (like doodling).

We're still playing on Sundays, at 23GMT. Newcomers welcome.

What do you think the best game console is?
I know emulators make this largely irrelevant, but if you had to have one console in your room with every game available to it, what would it be?

I suppose that was a bit rude of me. Not sure if you're the same anon or not, but if you're going to break down my posts like that to argue each and every word, it really makes me not even want to respond. It only tells me you're that much of an argumentative person and I don't want to get dragged into an argument, especially not that type. I've seen it enough times to tell that sort of debate goes back and forth until one person gets frustrated or tired and stops responding.

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.

Does anyone else find it really off putting when a game proudly boasts a ton of awards? I swear the more of these something has the more it makes me want to avoid the game.

When I saw all the awards Hades had gotten, I too felt disgusted by it. It was weird because I never even knew I would react like that just because something was critically acclaimed. In hindsight, what makes it even weirder is the fact that I actively seek to watch films that are critically acclaimed.
Ultimately, I refuse to give in to what seems to be an inner-hipster and stop myself from enjoying something just because it's popular. A game's a game. Whether or not I play it will be decided by its graphics and gameplay.

Most awards are completely meaningless.
10/10s however seem like an indication of bribery more often than not. There's not a single game that I can think of that is so flawless that it'd deserve a 10/10.
