I wanted to make one of those images charts that have a collection of recommended games in them, and I wanted to make it about the games that 420chan's /vg/ recommends.

Pls write down a list of the games that you consider to be essential. And please be honest with the list, don't go putting games in there that you don't even like that much and are super praised just to get brownie points (taste signaling?). Don't be afraid to put modern games you love in the list.

You couldn't be more wrong. BOTW chews through your items and constantly replaces them. The vital puzzle solving toys are all available by the end of the tutorial but you still get a lot of upgrades to your capabilities. Upgrades stack rather than obsolete each other, again barring weapons which are disposable, except one particular one (you probably can't guess unless you're willing to stop pretending to be a contrary moron). The difficulty is not uniform and some stuff is dark souls hard if you do it fresh out the tutorial zone. There is no fixed order to the bosses.

As for actual reccommendations I feel like I'd clump them depending what you want to do. Most of the games I most love are not ones I'd universally recommend to anyone but with the right taste I know a lot of people who'd jizz buckets and buckets for them.

I enjoyed BOTW but I might be the only person who felt that actually I was frequently punished for trying shit. Stuff like using all my cold resistance dishes to find a dragon in buttfuck nowhere, Thinking "aha I did it" then realising I needed to chase the thing but was out of cold dishes so I'd spent 30 minutes and achieved nothing and it was better to reload because I'd found no rare items. That happened a few times. Some bosses where I'd have to hack through the first phase a few times to try various ways to solve the problem or I had tried the right solution but not done it quite right stuff like that. That actually made me stop for the day a few times. I think a few extra unlockable teleports would have fixed quite a lot of that. The dungeons were cool puzzles though.

What I like about GTA 4 is that the guns aren't crazy accurate which results in shootouts actually lasting a while and feeling pretty tense.

The story is alright but it loses a lot of steam towards the end.

I liked the driving because pulling off some crazy weaving through traffic or a high speed turn are actually hard to do and rewarding when you get it right.

Unlike GTA5 quite a few of the radio stations are pretty good and memorable.

love the driving after i switched to first person.

it is not fun from flying angle, but put it in first person and it is tight, responsive and you feel as though you're in a super amazing handling car able to drive stupid fast and maneuver really accurate.

i think the camera change came later in production, and that driving was meant to be first person

My fellow Gamers,
As some of you might know, great gaming hero and icon Billy Mitchell, world record holder on Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr, Ms Pacman, Centipede and Burgertime, among others, has been battling controversy thanks to slanderous claims by few greedy youtubers, no doubt trying to lift their public profile by attacking such highly esteemed name. Let me give you an example:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=234Y76_3YPE

Unfortunately, as good people idly stood by, those unsubstantiated and false conspiracy theories found some traction on the internet, resulting in serious damage to mr Mitchell's image and gaming culture in general.
But now we have the chance to make things right.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmqZUrar4Io

Billy Mitchell is suing Apollo Legend and others for 12 million dollars. It is our duty as gamers to support Billy Mitchell in any way we can, be it donating money, writing to our congressman, or educating people on the internet. So called youtube "journalists" must know that gaming is a serious business and that words have consequences.
I hope we can make things right. For great justice.

Only if it will negatively impact the experience like lets say playing Morrowind for the first time with a guide. Pretty sure I explained myself back then too.
Compile heart dungeon crawlers are stupidly linear until end game. Banned Guy probably missed a line in the dialogue that explained where to go next, and will be lost without having to go back to a previous save. There is no need for that, just look up what to do next and go do it.

Old one stopped bumping so I’m making a new one.

The Quest for the Curry God continues. Really nice Dungeon Crawler here. It’s so sad that it went largely unnoticed due to it being exclusively released on the Vita. It gained a lot of popularity with it’s recent PC release. I wish it didn't happen, though I probably wouldn't have played it if it came out only on the PC.

So, what have you been playing lately?

I still cant figure out whither smoothdoom mod actually makes the game hard or not. not sure if the demons move faster but they are more predictable without it, but thats a given seeing how I spent more than a decade playing this game. But it is clear that even when playing on hurt me plenty I get damaged quite a lot, and always end up with a high damage roll. Switch to regular prboom and I cruise through the game perfectly. It's just that the mod really does make the game look a lot better, and it's difficult to switch back from it after enjoying all the extra animations it provides. Also it gets a little buggy, gives me infinite ammo whenever I pick up the BFG and sometimes the hellknight is spazzy if you attack him from behind.

>>756979
Its definitely one of the many issues they brought up in their reviews. Apparently a lot of the charm of the original game was all based on building a village together in a local co op experience and there is none of that in the remaster. You can travel together, but that's about it. The journey and the destination dont even matter. Sounds like they shot themselves in the foot. I still think it might be a decent experience for anyone who never played the original because it really looks like a fun game I want to pick up, but It doesn't sound like Ill be getting the full experience.

It's September therefore according to CVS it was Halloween last month, so it's officially nearly spooky season! What are you guys doing and playing if anything?

I just started a new game of Eternal Darkness and while it's not scary it's definitely putting me into a spooky fall mood and I dig it. I wasn't sure if I were into playing any horror games this fall considering how depressing everything has been lately, but if I beat this one, i can probably move onto the next.
It's also actually a neat game with widescreen support in 2002 somehow.

What spooky games are you playing or planning to play this spooky season and how does it make you feel? I grew up and currently live in New England so I'm really stoked for cool days and cold nights and the smell of leaves and burning oil and entire flora going into a depressing, gray hibernation. I fucking love this time of year.

That person is just misremembering. The PS2 version has the same audio cues as the PC version. There are two nightmare sequences, and it's only the second nightmare that has the scream after you fall off the blood track. It was literally the most terrifying I have experienced in a video game and I was playing it at night, alone, with my face pushed up to the television.

Just lost all of my items on terraria AGAIN. Started playing the game like the day before yesterday.

It has a lot of intuitive movement to make up for it but tbh I only know how to move side to side on horseback or with guns drawn. You can prob change it in settings esp on pc. That said it has a lot of shit to cram into one controller. Still think it's a great game

I'm playing P4G on Very Hard, new game with no bonuses and what in the fuck the only way to beat anything is to grind the first floor for hours getting SP healing items. I spent like six hours dying on Yukiko before deciding to try again next week. I haven't screamed at a game so much in a good while but damn did it earn it. This isn't an upgrade in difficulty it's just begging you to cheat the fucking system somehow, ridiculous and aggravating.

I remember playing the original on VH a long time ago and realizing I would have to grind for twenty hours and quit. I have nothing better to do so it looks like I'll be doing just that... The card bonus system is a nice upgrade by the way, you actually get some cool shit like stat bonuses/level up for your Persona and I finally have plenty of chest keys which was always an issue in 3/4. Gives me a little more hope for finally beating it on VH

Yeah, the Card bonus system is always a nice upgrade. I know Persona 3 got the same upgrade once it got ported to the PSP as well. I think its great because It gives you the option to keep your original Persona while also giving it new skills. It requires more effort than your other Teammates who seem like they always get the skills that are perfect for them, but leveling up only Izanagi along side them is a nice treat.

The Issue with Very Hard is just how much time it takes. I tried playing it on NewGame+ but it doesn't work. You stay overpowered for the majority of the run, but if you mess up, your underpowered party members will always mess up and bring you down. i dont believe a lot of thought put into it.

Where do you guys get your fix on news for games?

I don't flip through gaming sites too often, maybe twice a week or so. I've been getting particularly irritated by the flood of advertisement farming that I have to sift through to find anything that's actually news about new games coming out.

I don't need to know the top ten closet homo protagonists or what some streamer got banned for this week. I just want a reliable flow of "these games are coming out soon and here's some interviews with the creators."

It makes me miss magazines, because the writers had a week or more to prepare decent content, and since you paid for it there wasn't a forced ad about hip wallets or insurance every 2 paragraphs.

Suggestions much appreciated!

I'm playing the Ronin class which is sorta like a support with their special move being that you can revive all your teammates from anywhere, but they can also summon a ghost dog you can pet as well.

Also in survival mode, you get points for kills and tasks and stuff. When you get enough, you can summon a ghost bear that comes in and wrecks shit. Can't tell if you can pet it though since it solo carried us the wave it was in while 3 of us were dead.

Runs around the battle, usually following you, and attacks enemies by biting them. When it bites then and drags them, they can't block as well, so that's usually an easy kill. Also enemies try to attack it so it draws agro. You can later upgrade it to a ghost bear if you want, where if you've seen the bears in single-player, it does the same thing where it tosses all your enemies around like dolls.

Easily one of the best recent games i've played, if you're into detective/noir and tabletop RPGs this is for you. Beautiful art style and writing too. Seems like the type of characters and setting this place would vibe with.

well, it's just a really weird and hard to explain game, and it's all about the dialogue. I recommend trying it for an hour or 2, and then maybe start a new game when you kind of understand what all the stats do, and what kind of character you want to play. Don't listen to that guy who said none of the dialogue options matter, they all matter, just not in the way you night expect. The game gives you bonuses for drinking and doing drugs, but the game also starts to treat you like the kind of addict you are. incredibly immersive stuff, if you let it be.

If you’re someone who mainly plays shooters this is the opposite end of the gaming world. But it’s just so damn well written. Soulful, depressing, optimistic and hilarious at times. And I find it’s use of dice rolls and character skills perfectly supplements what is otherwise a point and click detective game. Id recommend not using a pre built class and reading all the skill descriptions.

It's a great game to immerse yourself in with the help of drugs, I'm an alcoholic but I imagine it would be good with weed or whatever. Also easy to play when you're wasted although remembering dialogue can be an issue. Probably appeals to that part of my stupid psychology that imagined I was fucking Bukowski or something when I started drinking.

It's not like anything else I've ever played before, it took a bit of getting used to for me but that's because my fucking OCD brain always tries to minmax everything but it's really not that kind of game at all, it's about the ride. I've currently got 100 hours on record and I haven't finished it but that's probably because I've been drunk the majority of those hours. It's probably worth replaying too because there are tons of dialogue trees and skill checks that don't even show up depending on your stats.

I probably got a boring run really because I tried to make the stat distribution as even as I could because I hate dumping a stat unless I know it's useless to me.

So there was this math game where the premise was you were trying to eliminate monsters front of a castle. You be given a sum and each monster had a numerical value you had to combine to make the sum. The idea behind the game being that you would teach yourself to do more and more complicated equations because you would eliminate more monsters in a single turn.

For instance if your sum 5 you could pick 1 and 4. Or you could pick 2 and 2 and 1. And then it would get more and more complicated with negatives and division and what not.

What are some examples of weird things you've noticed when playing video games

In Revenge of the Flying Dutchman, the lighting effect is all fucked up in most major levels of the game which gives the game this eerie feeling of almost every single segment of the game giving it this strange night time aesthetic despite all the NPC's claiming it to be the middle of the day

I can't explain it. You ever jumped into the deep end of the pool and swam all the way to the bottom where its really dark at the bottom? That is what the skybox of this game reminds me of. I get the same feeling of something being off the same way people play Wet Dry World and look at the skybox above them

The Battle for Bikini Bottom remake disappoints me. That remake got the Toys for Bob Treatment

Also the 1st thing I noticed from the 2 playable demos is the lighting engine in the remake is all sorts of fucked up and its extremely noticable in the opening cutscene. They couldn't figure out a way to balance out the color contrast.
