You really don't understand why a new studio of at most 20 people, usually even less, can't make the next Silent HIll?
Console war? I didn't mention any other consoles in those threads so I don't know what you're talking about.If you seriously need to ask that, then its probably best that you dont make threads. And you should be thankful that you only had threads locked, some of your recent posts have been console war bullshit, including that Phil Spencer thread.
Fellow 35 year old here and I agree. Unlike some hardcore gamers, I actually don't find myself becoming more cynical as time goes on as it relates to gaming. I've played and seen so much that most things don't surprise me and even when something is really good I still may not care enough to play it. Basically, been there and done that.Mid 30s here. Getting older and don't have as much free time as before. We've developed our gaming tastes on what we prefer. We've seen alot so we're not always as wowed from reveals compared to when we were younger. But that's ok. There's always great stuff coming out and there's always that unexpected Indie darling that pops up every now and then.
Gaming's not dying, you're just getting old.
i do tend to think games these days are crazy good, in a "the industry has adopted a trend of learning from past mistakes and locking on to features that have a proven trackrecord with fans" kinda way, but that ain't a bad thing.I've been gaming since 1981 and games are better than ever.
You must have missed flight simulator, psychonaughts, Forza 5, Sea of Thieves, Grounded , 12 Minutes....off the top of my head.Every goddamn game announced at MS show today was either some Left 4 Dead zombie shit with unfunny and overly charasmatic characters. Or a shooter with MP as the focus. The fortnite artstyle in every game.
Stop paying attention to AAA crap, and stereotype 8/16bit inde. Games like Fortnight made shit tons of money, so lot's of devs are trying to cash in on that craze. Plus the whole "woke"/covid19 vocal minority crowd really fucked up and sent mixed messages to gaming developers.Honestly if most indie devs keep resorting to 8bit or 16 bit throwback games, they have no chance competing against a Retropie or a chinese handheld with Retroarch on it.
Where are the indie devs trying to top Silent Hill, Fatal Frame, Project Gotham Racing, Vagrant Story, Legacy of Kain, SF Alpha III, Twisted Metal, Slyphon Filter, Devil May Cry and many more?
Sorry for the long rant but I had to get this off my chest. Maybe someone in their teens can weigh in to put some perspective? Are single player story based games not popular anymore unless they have best in class production values?
This. So much this.I get what you are saying and I always think “ maybe it’s me? Maybe I am getting old” then Nintendo puts out a game and I realize it’s not me. it’s just the games have been boiled down to a formula for mass success and not many third parties go for pure gameplay greatness anymore.
Nintendo and very few others still can make awesome games with modern gameplay and make it fresh and exciting.
Excuse me, where the hell did I say the NES years were the best?Been playing since the 80's as well and games are so much better now imo. Pretty much every genre of game that came out during the 8/16/32 bit era has been eclipsed so many times by modern games.
There are better platformers now, better racing games, sports games, action games, everything really is better now.
If anyone thinks NES or some shit was the best era of games then it's purely nostalgia or you just don't ever play new games.
Lol wrong quote but exactly what i think.If you seriously need to ask that, then its probably best that you dont make threads. And you should be thankful that you only had threads locked, some of your recent posts have been console war bullshit, including that Phil Spencer thread.
U bashed halo and phil. Theres nothin to bash about them. Phil doesnt have his days counted. You may hate him, but i think hes done wonders for pc and xbox. Urs was a hate thread based on nothing but jealousy.Can someone explain why some opinion topics are allowed and others aren't? My two threads about Halo and Phill Sñencer got locked inmediately. Is there a rule I don't know about?
They are everywhere. I get announcements like these games every week.Where are the indie devs trying to top Silent Hill, Fatal Frame, Project Gotham Racing, Vagrant Story, Legacy of Kain, SF Alpha III, Twisted Metal, Slyphon Filter, Devil May Cry and many more?
So it's against the rules to critize Microsoft?U bashed halo and phil. Theres nothin to bash about them. Phil doesnt have his days counted. You may hate him, but i think hes done wonders for pc and xbox. Urs was a hate thread based on nothing but jealousy.
And on topic...did u really think ms just buying bethesda was miraculously going to have 10 games to show? Bethesda was working on them way before the acquisition.
You have to be realistic, bethesda has fucked up plenty of times, released broken ass games, so no they dont always deliver. Ms is trying to fix the huge laat gen fuck up and its going to take time.
Yeah I have plenty to play and look forward to.Outside of Nintendo and afew indie titles I agree gaming isn’t that amazing due to lack of creativity. They are going for the please everyone vibe. Anyways we got Eldin ring, BOTW2, new Pokémon next year looks good, an those games to me are pretty big titles.
Well I definitely agree that games are NOT better than ever. Yeah graphics are better these days, but that does not make a good game. Many are shallow, microtransaction focused and want to fit with whatever social trend is going on currently.
