I have a horrible sense of direction.  When I play games like Skyrim I get lost for minutes in caves trying to backtrack and find my way out.  If it weren't for in-game maps I'd be hopeless.

Scarface was the best GTA clone before Saints Row 2 came along imo. They nailed it if you ask me. It even had a good story, a what if scenario that managed to take a new spin on the classic movie.

Customizing your villa, great soundtrack, city to take over, drug business, many good locations.. it was a great licenced game, a diamond in the pile of sh*t called PS2 movie license games. I haven't played any of the games you mentioned besides KOTOR though.

Blade Runner was and still is the absolute best game based on a movie imo. Looks and sounds exactly like the original movie (even though they didn't use Vangelis), excellent story that takes place at exactly the same time as the movie, and it even featured some of the original actors to voice their characters in the game. No other game has done it better, although Alien Isolation did come pretty close for it's atmosphere and 80s sci-fi tech. The game is not for everyone though because it is a point and clicker like Indiana Jones (which is also an absolute classic for someone like me who grew up playing adventure games).

I always wish there was time where videogame graphic stop evolving. So you can play every latest videogame without needing to upgrade your PC

As a PC gamer, I always wanted to play most new videogames. Like Assassin's Creed Origins, Watch Dogs 2, and Mafia III but due my PC being not very good, I still can't play them. And I still can't upgrade my PC

So true. The increasing demand for stunning visuals needs to stop at some point. There are still many players who really can't afford a PC that can run these modern games at optimum settings. A lot of these open world games don't different much in terms of gameplay and content either. So, what's the point in upgrading the PC? Graphics? Nah...

i mean...just buy a console? 

PCs are great but if you don't want to deal with upkeep they're really not for you.

On average Ive been buying atleast one game (sometimes more) every two weeks since last April. I reckon Ive bought atleast 30 in that amount of time. Most of them are digital games when theres been a deal on the PS and Xbox store.

I rarely buy full priced games anymore unless its something Ive been waiting for. I guess its not the worst habit to have, but Im always fairly strict with my money anyway and will only buy when I know I can afford it.

The only thing is I havent finished most of them. So many great games to finish. Not enough time to.:(

2017 was definetly my most expensive gaming year ever, excluding console purchases because I didn't buy any. Bought a 100 euro Nacon Revolution controller though.

I must have bought like 5-6 full priced games and 5-6 or more for half price+ or so. Bought a bunch of digital games too, but only if they're on sale.

I don't even want to start counting how many games I played and how much it cost me in total. Do I feel guilty? Maybe a little, but it's better than some other habits I had in the past.



I feel regret for cheating my final Bloodborne boss fight. I completed the entire game alone, with no easy tactics or cheap ways to beat bosses. I needed a small tip here and there but I think everyone needed tips on their first game in this gerne.

I beat the last boss using coop and he went down in one try. I kinda regret it.

I actually bought Bloodborne recently. I've never played a Dark Souls game which I know it shares similarities with, but how hard would you say Bloodborne is? Like hard that a lot of it comes down to luck, trial and error or so hard it makes you want to pull you hair out, smash your controller and never want to play the game again?

 

I only played it for a little bit as there as some other games I want to finish first because I get the feeling it's the type of game you'd really need to focus on to get the most out of it.

it's weird, but i'm in my late (very late) 20s and I just recentrly discovered sonic, thanks to generation (and fell in love with the game). It's my first sonic game, and I basically loved everything about it.
Then I tried Unleashed ps2, and i still had tons of fun (except the wherehog, and the slippery night controls, and the werehog running animation. and the collectibles, and... ok, HALF of it was fun)
But where do i go from here?

Colors and Lost World are off-limits (i don't have a wii)
Unleashed ps3... more werehog and moon/sun medals? oh, please!!!
Forces... i'm reading bad things about it
And (this is another big confession) i'm just not a 2D player, I found them boring, no matter the quality... so even mania isn't for me.

I guess i just have to wait another good boost game. At least I feel like the rest of the fanbase, now...

@AA: it's very hard. For starters, it took me over a year to finish it because I couldn't get the hang of it and got very frustrated with it. It was a digital purchase too so I couldn't trade it. I f*cking hated it and thought people love it because of some stupid elitist gamer syndrome.

I tried it maybe 5-6 times over the year but never got far. Couldn't even reach the first boss. Every time I fished it from my backlog, I played it for a few hours, got into rage mode and removed it from my HDD again.

Actually, I finished it not too long ago. Dunno what got into me but I kept looking at the games I bought and never finished and saw bloodborne again. Played it, tried to give it a more serious try considering how stats work, how items and leveling really work, grind if I have to. And I made it.

Once I beat the first boss, I couldn't let go of this game and had to finish it and I did. That first boss changed everything, pushed me to finish the game. I realized why people like these games so much and started to absolutely love it too.

I think my 100+ hours in AC Origins helped me a lot too because of the somewhat similar dodge and attack system.

So it's a hard game indeed and you're going to die a lot but that's fine. You need to learn how this game feels by simply practicing. Saw Cleaver is the best starter weapon I think. Never got far with the other weapons on my failed attempts to get into it.

I can't tell if co-op makes it much easier because I only used it for the final boss. Think it's more satisfying to play alone though.

That’s what I thought. Thanks for describing though.

It will and if you feel that, that means you need to use the moment to learn to control your frustration and anger. Think about it, when you played Super Mario Bros or Contra back in the day, you couldn't complete it in one-shot, right?

Trial and error is what the game is all about. You lost, you come back, you try again with something else in mind.

The game is 80% your experience and 20% your stats. Yes, you will find annoying cheap moves now and then, so I guess luck is also a factor in the game although you definitely can overcome it.

I f*cking hated it and thought people love it because of some stupid elitist gamer syndrome.


^ This guy isn't wrong either. Soulsborne is a den of e-peen elitism bullsh*t. Probably you have read people voting on BB and DS3 being the easiest game while real Souls pros play DS1, which the claim will be argued again by pro-DS2 people. As someone who play the games backwards, I can assure you that's a big pile of bullsh*t. So don't feel bad if you will have a rough time starting in BB, you're just inexperienced - that's all. After you played BB, the moment you step into DS2 or 3, you wouldn't have as rough time as when you had with BB, although there will be things you will need to re-adapt, this doesn't mean the other game you just stepped in to be easier than BB.

The first Souls game you play is always the most difficult and they become subsequently easier. And as much as people don't want to admit it Dark Souls 1 was much cheaper in its design and unfair, which translates into more artificial difficulty.

- My first console was a old, gray Game Boy. I got it for christmas. Today I play on PC and PS4Pro, sometimes on my XBox360.

 

- My favorite game of all time is RDR and I bought my XBox just for this game. RDR2 will played on PS4Pro and 4K TV and I can´t wait :D

 

- I never played GTA V. My last one was IV. I tried to have fun, but I'm sick of it after playing GTA III, VC and SA. Maybe I'll give the game a chance someday and buy it but so far I have no interest in it.

 

- The game where I scared the most was Resident Evil on PSI. Since then I hate zombies. I played TLOU just for the story and yes I admit, I really had to overcome myself, but it was worth it :D

 

- I never understood why some want to "use" whores in a game and I never did

- My actual first game machine given to me was Game Boy Pocket. With a 'hundreds in one' cartridge. lol.
- Before that, there was Nintendo Famicom
- I saved money during high school and bought a PSP. Parents found out shortly after. They were angry and asked me where I got the money from.
- There was some sort of 'I claim this title' thing with my brother when it comes to games. So for example, GTA and Harvest Moon were mine. Final Fantasy and Tenchu were his. But of course he broke that rule himself when he played Pokemon and Monster Rancher, which were my 'findings'. This 'rule' luckily didn't last long.

As I said in my OP it was Resident Evil 2 that petrified me as a youngster, but zombies dont phase me at all now.

What freaks me out are games like Outlast where the only thing you can really do is run and hide. Thats way creepier than zombies IMO.
