I guess my main gripe is the loot system. Probably just me, but I'm completely burnt out on diablo-style color-coded gear with a million stats that you have to constantly check and replace or craft or sell off. The combat itself is a lot of fun, though.

Same, plus for most of the game you're constantly finding more powerful gear to equip. But towards the final chapters these instant upgrades suddenly stop and you have to get into the whole crafting system which you could easily ignore up to to that point.
Which would be ok if it was a simple upgrade system like in Dark Souls or something. But no, there are tons of modifiers to consider and demystify for every piece of equipment, it's pretty overwhelming.

After talking with so many people that enjoyed Breath of the Wild, I can't help but feel like I was missing out on something. It never really grabbed me. I complained about this game a while back in the BWP thread. I recall saying that I didn't appreciate breakable weapons, the plot, lack of progression, or the combat. I never engaged with any of the enemies I came across because it felt meaningless to do so. I also didn't enjoy the Divine Beast sections because they all felt the same. I didn't totally dislike it, though. I respect it for being experimental and not being the same as its predecessors.

So, should I give this game another chance?

That article doesn't even back up what you said.
But then there's this little gem tho:
>we used the physics and chemistry engines, the rules that were already in the game, and then mass-produced these puzzles

That explains quite a lot. Thanks for proving my point I guess.

I give zero fucks about whether or not a game is GOTY. That shit is just a silly marketing construct anyway.

Why are you so desperate to not concede defeat, little guy? It's already over. It's been over. It must have taken you a lot of effort to find one quote you could take out of context to "get me". Here's the relevant quote though:
>Did you find it more challenging, or was it easier, to design puzzles with multiple solutions, as opposed to more straightforward Zelda puzzles?
>Fujibayashi: Once you get the hang of it, and you figure out how it is to actually build these puzzles, then it becomes easier.
The interviewer is asserting that puzzles were designed to have multiple solutions, and the director of Zelda implicitly agreeing. I bet you feel pret-ttty stupid right about now. I know you're hurt. But it's okay! Take a deep breath and try doing something else for a while. Actually on second thought, maybe you better get the last word in. I know how important it is to guys like you. Don't want you going on a shooting spree or anything.

I understand the mechanics of melee attacks, I just dont enjoy them. I prefer to shoot stuff from afar so I found it irritating that the game is designed to make me not do it as much as I'd like. Its not a bad game if you like to play the way developers intend you to.

It's a lot more like Serious Sam.

Doom has more mechanical depth in its glory kill finishers than Skyrim does in the whole game. And they did that just for aesthetic variety, it doesn't even do anything gameplay-wise except for fulfilling challenges.

The overall melee system is just designed to keep you moving aggressively. Movement is the most important part of a fast-paced shooter and Doom does everything it can to keep you from just sitting in cover.

It burns through ammo to keep you changing weapons.

Wolfenstein is a lot more of a conventional shooter but it's still one of the retro blood and gore games.

I'd compare Doom to Serious Sam and Wolfenstein more to Bulletstorm.

It is actually almost nothing like the original Doom. It follows the lineage of Quake-like movement but it's just so far removed

If you haven't played dwarf fortress yet what are you even doing?
Have you ever wanted to manage a bunch of drunk ants and commit genocide at the same time?

Try dwarf fortress.
I'm currently in the middle of one of my longest lived fortresses to date. It´s 13 in game years old.
It´s a reclaimed site that failed after one year when a hoard of zombies marched on my newly established fortress.
After the reclaim the first 3 years or more were spent collecting corpses and cleaning gore and banishing ghosts.
Being raised around constant filth of corpses and ghosts then later invasions that involved alot of zombie and goblin death have cause most people in my fortress to have the tag `Didnt feel any thing when`with all their memories....
so most of the fort are sociopaths.

But after that I´ve repelled every invasion and have recently been made by the local undead and goblin forces.

But the most recent raid included 53 goblins
I lost only 3 military dwarfs and most of my animals.
I just discovered deep caverns and am slowly moving all my live stock into the cave.

I run mine in a passthrough VM, but holy shit that was difficult to get running and installed initially. The kick in the balls is that it takes a while to boot them up, and they have to be shut down to switch the GPU around anyway, so it's basically just as bad as dual booting.

Pic related strolled into a cavern.
A section of the stairs were immediately ordered to be walled off, while a circle of trenches and fortifications were designated so the marksmen could surround and fill it with lead before it got close.
The militias were mustered and they prepared for battle.

Except one of the miners, unarmored except for his shoes passed by the beast on his way to dig out the fortifications.
And immediately proceeded to cripple the thing with his drill.
He spent the next several hours kicking, biting, and drilling the thing, dodging every swing and spit, not taking a single wound, at one point, using his teeth to shaking the poor thing around by it's leg, tearing all the tendons.

Then he passed out on the stairs for several hours. But I guess he was just tired, not dying of poison from the forgotten beast, since he got up, and went back to work.

50 slavers invaded.

Some minor, unnotable catastrophes had lowered the population to 34 able-bodied fighters, most of whom were inexperienced.
Everyone was assigned the best guns, melee weapons, and armor we had, and were sent to muster in a valley next to the brahmin field.

The slavers approached, but when several of them stopped to kill the brahmin, the squads climbed over the ridge and opened fire.
The brahmin-russlers were incapacitated by the first wave of bullets, and both armies charged, at which point a previously unnoticed hauler who'd been assigned a minigun entered VATS and killed 19 of them herself.
Routed, the rear of the slaver army broke off and retreated, while the snipers fired into the opposing army indiscriminately.

The battle decisively won, all soldiers were released.
Which made some of them very angry. The fully armed and armored veterans proceeded to start throwing tantrums, and pretty soon there was a firefight outside the dining room.
After about 5 minutes of the place getting riddled with minigun, laser, and plasma-caster rounds, the fights seemed to break up as participants got tired, injured, calmed down, or just ran off, all somehow without anyone actually getting killed.

Mario Kart 8 is pretty good for multiplayer, the drive assist lets even your average grandma stay on the track, but a player that knows what they're doing will still win every time.
I like it with the portability of the Switch, but I do wish there was a true co-op mode for it, like team races, rather than all the modes being competitive.

She's mean to her cute allies for no reason. I consider myself an Anti-bully Ranger, so this character really triggered me.

That reminds me about how my friends and I were making 9/11 jokes the day it happened. Good times.

I made this thread on the dwarf fortress forums and it spawned a 20+ page argument
Toady One him self locked the thread and warmed against making threads with the intent to start arguments

So here goes;

Is it ethical to play video games that have a high level of simulation involved?

I'll use the game dwarf fortress as the example to illustrate my question.

In Dwarf Fortress you simulate an entire world including geology, weather, wars, people fall in love, people write books, people form complex relationships among them selves and larger communities.

Individuals have likes and dislikes, they can remember the past (in the latest update of the game) and use their past experiences to decide what to do in the present.
The people you simulate in this world even exibit a fairly complex range of emotions.
To say they are just ones and zeros in a computer is too simple, because there is no way to prove we also aren't in a simulation.

I fret for the future, people are too simple for their own good these days.

They can store 8 short term memories of events that then later are used to form 8 long term memories that ussualy never change.

Im not arguing the dwarves are alive. It was just an example to show a complicated simulation in a video game.

But at what point would you consider something artificial alive or conscious?

Were just meat robots driven by genetic firmware and memories, our entire emotional response basically revolves around only serotonin and dopamine.

Ah. Don't tell them we're just meat robots. They aren't ready to know.

We're meat robots that are fully integrated into a system that runs on quantum unpredictability, which might as well be magic, as opposed to fully predictable robots that run on classical computers.
