    Not even my genre, but this game looks fantastic:

    The old RPG companies I used to love -- Bioware and Bethesda, are currently dismantling themselves, rushing to catch onto that MMO/Lootbox easy cash that requires no quality or pride in creation. Screw them.


    Online multiplayer is killing the solo experience. Nice to see someone embrace the desire to not have an experience ruined by assholes. EA can go **** themselves.

  • Cyberpunk was my favorite trailer for any upcoming game at E3. I can't wait to see what CD Projekt Red does with it. They're probably the only game company that I feel comfortable pre-ordering from these days.

    I'm with ya SeatownJay, I think we'll see a release of this at the earliest 2020. They didn't even put a year on the trailer.

    Tell that to Guerilla Games and the many other studios that are pumping out stellar single player games still. I'm really not sure why people are still saying that single player is dead/dying.

  • Beyond microtransactions and big companies like EA attempting to gouge their own customers, this is the golden age of gaming. Whether you want competitive multiplayer, single player campaigns or co-op adventures, there is a ton of titles out there for folks to enjoy.

    Great single player experiences that have come out in the last few years:
    Kingdome Come: Deliverance
    GTA V
    Witcher 3 (and the DLCs)
    Dark Souls 3
    Nioh
    Hotline Miami (1 & 2)
    Tomb Raider
    Rise of the Tomb Raider
    Mad Max
    South Park: The Stick of Truth
    South Park: The Fractured But Whole
    Bastion
    Dying Light
    Fallout 4
    Doom
    Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus
    The Evil Within series
    Dishonored
    Prey
    XCOM 2
    Metal Gear Solid V

    I'm sure I could go on if I started actually looking at lists. There's plenty to choose from these days, especially on Steam with big ol' sales going on all the time - like right now through the 5th of July.

    I'm not saying there aren't great single player offerings (I am seriously anticipating Red Dead Redemption 2 in October, screw GTA, I'm all about Grand Theft Horse), I simply meant EA and Konami and the like are trying to strangle them to death. Hideo Kojima's vision for MGSV was so much grander, but was cut short by Konami's desire to make a quick buck, and now we have Metal Gear Survive, a terrible game by terrible people for mindless sheep. Even Bethesda is getting in on the act, I loved Fallout 3 and New Vegas (4 was meh), and Fallout 76 has lost me.

  • I get what you're saying Maulbert, I think the trends over the last 10 years from major game studios/publishers is disgusting. From releasing broken games that take months to be patched, to releasing games with minimal content and requiring users to buy DLCs or wait/grind forever for free content, to putting in-game progression behind loot boxes and other microtransactions, the gaming industry has been treating their customers like crap. The whole Battlefront 2 fiasco was kinda an amalgamation of gamers' frustrations with not only EA, but the trends in gaming themselves.

    With that said, there's still a ton of great offerings from all types of studios. CD Projekt Red has definitely earned my trust, which is why I'm so pumped on Cyberpunk. I just don't think the industry is in as bad of shape as people think. I understand the frustrations if you really only enjoy single player games, they've been left in the dust in comparison to development of multiplayer focused games.

    No, they haven't. You even provided a rather extensive list to prove otherwise. A list that I might add didn't even have an Indie studio game listed, and there are a good amount of them.

    Fallout 76 is an MMO with limited people per server from what I've gathered. Using this as an example of ruining single player is like saying that any other MMO has done that, and that has never been the case.

    It's hard to talk about her without politics, but she's an extreme feminist and SJW --

    Sort of a Jerry Falwell, Tipper Gore, et for the new generation, except more extreme than either and unlike the former, she's a media darling.

    She collects money and organizes campaigns based on the fact that video games degrade women and are immoral. She wants sexy clothing stricken from games. She wants women in games wearing armor to not have breasts on said armor or anything that looks like a female breast. She wants things like thongs banned - while she wants men to be subjected to "man thongs" as recompense. She wants female characters to be baser and less attractive, even ugly, so that girls playing the game are not mentally wounded by not being pretty enough... and also points out that men cannot be mentally wounded when the God of War or whatever hero is more muscular and manly than we are, because we have inherent privilege and the books need to be balanced because of all the suffering we have inflicted on women as part of the (TM) "patriarchy"

    It goes on and on and on.

    Basically a 3rd wave radfem who's hip with Vulture, CNN, Huff Post, et.

    Also, she has put out fake criteria and claims... just like most preacher/sheister's and snake oil salesmen in history. Claimed to be a lifelong gamer, yet didn't know much at all about games and got caught in her lies a bunch of times.

    She even attacked Boogie at a video game convention about a year back - a dude who is about the gentlest soul in gaming, just spewed her venom all over him, screaming and ranting

    Short story.

    She hates men.

    She hates video games and geek culture that appeals to men, and wants it all changed to appeal only to women.

    Paint the world pink and put rainbows and puppy dogs on our games and chase out the evil men.

    Aros and I would be villains in her book for our thumbnails, and worthy of "reprogramming".

    Spoken like a true MRA that believes they have a divine right to be a racist, sexist, misogynistic homophobe.

    I was actually wondering that myself... is that sarcasm or is that serious? I went back and forth.

    Is it scary that it's so hard to tell these days?

    I don't know Z_Man well enough to call him those things in all seriousness. Although, sadly, that description I gave does fit quite a few troglodytes who I've seen railing online against feminism. Their responses wouldn't have been nearly as cogent or rational as Z's was, though.

  • I can understand all points of view on feminism. I think they are all necessary forces that work against each other to keep everything in equilibrium. Let's take a moment to say thank you to the contributing population of those forces.

  • There are some genuine internet troglodytes out there, but I will say that when Sarkeesian started her little crusade, she was not a gamer, something she has admitted, so she was looking for a hill to die on, which I find despicable. Now she's acting like a martyr. I try to give her or the dustup she started as little attention as possible.

    There are some decent games out, but I'd hardly say that we're in the golden age of gaming. There are some disturbing trends going around among the developers. The first of which being the release of incomplete games. Games are being released, and pushed out to the public in and incomplete fashion. The condition of these games in some cases is game breaking. A good example of this was The Division. On release it was horrendous, borderline unplayable. Now a days it is a respectable game but it took them a few years to get it down. This is the case with many games being released these days.

    The second issue that needs to be touched on is the micro transactions that virtually every developer is pushing. It is getting to become quite absurd. A good example of this is the incoming COD game, Black Ops 4. In order to get the complete game I've heard it will cost you 150 dollars in total. It isn't just Activision and EA doing this either. Rockstar is starting to jump on the micro transaction bandwagon with GTA online. The game is borderline unplayable due to the costs of essential items in the game. You either have to grind for many hours, or go to rock-star and buy "shark cards" which can cost up to 100 dollars. What is happening here is the exchange of real currency for in game currency. These cards have made Rockstar 500 million dollars alone. Rockstar used to be a franchise that released killer games anually, now they have even stated that they are going to be employing this business model in all of their games.

    What is happening is games are being pushed out with minimal content, or just flat out incomplete content. If anyone wants to continue, or have a pleasurable experience they must fork out considerable amounts of money. The games you have mentioned are becoming fewer in number and farther apart.

    As someone who plays a lot of games and follows the industry more than your average person, I fundamentally disagree. I guess if you're someone who buys an Xbox or PlayStation and then bends over to big studios and only buys $60 AAA games, it's not the golden age, but there has never been a time with more offerings from more studios at more varied prices than there is today. Different markets to buy from, cross-platform titles, indie devs given more resources and opportunity to complete games than ever before, Xbox/Microsoft exclusives now being able to be played on both Xbox or PC, family sharing your games on Xbox/PC, the list can go on and on.

    Most consumers, unfortunately, just don't do their homework and/or haven't learned their lesson and end up pre-ordering the "next big game" from studios like Ubisoft and Bungie and then get pissed off when they're let down yet again. There's nothing wrong with waiting for a game to release and seeing what the reviews say. Steam allows you to play a game for up to 2 hours and get a refund no questions ask. The consumers are the ones who are letting these trends continue.

    Maybe it's because I play games exclusively on PC now, but I've never been more impressed and satisfied with the shape of the gaming industry. I haven't bought a game for more than $30 in years, but I'd bet I've poured more time into games than 99% of the posters on this site.

    Spin, the rest of what you wrote isn't news and has been addressed. It sucks that big studios/publishers want to gouge their customers, but all you need to do is start looking at the devs/studios/publishers that are doing things right. I think you'll find there's more good ones than bad ones.

    For sure. Everyone's tastes and experiences are different. My gaming experience has changed in just about every way since building my gaming PC (btw, thanks again iRo :P).

    For my tastes, as someone who enjoys online multiplayer games the most, I think gamers have a ridiculous amount of quality games to choose from.

  • Z - the online character leveling experience in Star Wars: The Old Republic is outstanding. It's an MMO, but you can do virtually everything with one friend, and it's like ME2/ME3, but Star Wars. You could easily spend a ton of time leveling every class (unique class stories for half of them - four on each side of the force, so eight total) and get a lot of enjoyment, but it's a lot easier with a friend.

  • Online multiplayer gaming are more like playing sports, and single player games are more like watching movies. Both are fun in their own way.

    I love PC gaming, but I get tired of sitting on my computer chair and being hunched over my computer desk. It's pretty anti-social when people are over, too. And that sucks for me because I do love online multiplayer shooters, but can't stand playing them with a controller. So I kind of have to dab a little bit in both.

    Exactly. It lets me express my competitive side since I don't participate in any of those types of sports anymore.

    Bahaha that's actually kind of awesome. Mine was definitely CSGO.

    Some of my favorite gaming memories are playing Project Gotham Racing 2 on the original Xbox with a group of about 5 friends. We prolly played every night for over half a year before some of us got bored with it and moved on to different games. Original Xbox Live... those were the days.

    Sounds like a much better experience than the competitive game of my choice; League of Legends, also known as league of salt. The game is fun as hell, but it is quite possibly one of the most toxic, and competitive environments I've ever seen in any online game. It has the biggest Esport scene out of any game, hell the championships have even been on ESPN. It seems like everyone is dreaming of becoming some PRO or big time streamer. The ranked mode is very addictive.

    I could never get into LoL...I was in a very top-tier raiding guild in original WoW, though. We were top five in the world at that time...I do, and don't, miss those days. Being that good in a 40-man group is so much harder than a group of four or five, lol.

    For whatever reason I never tried that one out. Heard it was good, just never got it.

    It was brutal in an awesome way. It culled noobs from playing it simply by even leveling up. You had to be smart to even enjoy it, lol.

  • Z, though I didn't say this in my post, I was referring mainly to PvP'ing on Darktide. AC didn't have large-scale raiding, but it had the most skill-based PvP combat I've ever seen in a multiplayer game of any kind, IMO. (On the always-red server, Darktide, that is.)

    Also, I played AC2 as well. Every single change they made, just made things worse. It was incredible - like they were trying to end the game on purpose. Yet, it was also undoubtedly the most visually beautiful game of its time, and there were some awesome things in it that were very clever/entertaining, such as the musical instruments. I leveled every class to 50, sold my account for $1400, and then the game shutdown like 9-10 months later, LOL.

  • New cinematic trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 from E3 2019. Looks pretty poggers and I'm stoked Keanu Reeves is going to be in it. I'm surprised his participation wasn't leaked TBH.

  • The gaming crowd now has some serious issues that go way beyond entitlement. It as if you somehow could combine an SJW and a MAGA into one creature. If you don't like it then don't buy it and if you want to go back to the way games used to be then play old games. The dev...almost gang related alignments can go to hell too. If it's a good game then it's a good game...or not.

    Once Cyberpunk got Keanu into this, they're now getting attention from outside gaming base though...no pressure dudes. Looks like a great game, but we'll see.
