BEST PC GAMES OF LAST 15 YEARS? by Primordial Serpent Kingseeker Frampt - Sun, 30 Apr 2017 00:39:22 EST ID:2fDCI/mr No.699364 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Howdy /vg/.

Long story short after 15 years on a shit laptop I've finally been able to make a computer that can play games

What do you think are games that are must plays for someone who basically hasn't been able to play real games? Particularly looking for good mods (as I've never been able to mod before) and bonus points if it's local co op

Keep in mind I've still been playing on consoles so please don't recommend like HL2 as if it's actually a good modern game. No disrespect but cmon, compare HL2 to Portal 2 today and there's no comparison

This is a first person semi-stealth game. The key is that it gives you a lot of cool powers. You teleport around, stop time, take possession of dudes, and a bunch more. The amount of options you have in this game make it a lot of fun, and very replayable. The story is lackluster, but the setting looks amazing. It was actually designed by the same guy who did the design work on Half Life 2, believe it or not. Despite that, its storytelling mechanism with the Chaos system is pretty interesting. I recommend not using quicksave too often, because it's a really cool experience to play it more continuously, especially when aiming for a Low Chaos run.

>Crysis/Crysis: Warhead
They're pretty old by now, but they're definitely my favorite single player FPS games. At the time, they represented the pinnacle in graphics, so they still look pretty good. But it's the gameplay that's the real star in this game; you're your standard soldier type (yeah, the story is ridiculously B) but you have an advanced suit of power armour that basically turns you into a superhero. Or the Predator. Like Dishonored, you have a really broad range across which to play this game. In Crysis, you do stuff yourself that in normal FPS games your character only does in cutscenes.

I think either I kept them to repair other guns or I was just trying to collect one of every gun or something weird like that. I was playing the black road mode of MISERY so I was in super hoardy mode. I was also playing without armor up past the Jupiter Plant for added difficulty. Surprisingly doable.

Oh, I also wanna throw Endless Legend into this thread. The first game was alright (and the only game I've bought in early access), but Endless Legend is so much better. I love Civ, but Endless Legend has the sci-fi setting going for it and the races and lore are so fleshed out. I've lost so many hours to that game.

For decades Zelda in terms of plot progression never seems to leave its creatively bankrupt box of ideas. Every game usually boils down to either

>Ganon is back stab that fucker to death
>A follower/reincarnation of Ganon's essence is trying to resurrect its perfect form go stab that fucker to death

Even Breathe of the Wild with its Open World mechanic its still just gonna boil down to this again which baffles me into believing this shit will sell a million copies. Don't even pretend that this game is incapable of leaving its world because we've seen this game transition from Wooden Boats to Steam Power in terms of both tug boats and fucking trains.

When are we going to slowly start introducing the idea of fire arms into the zelda universe? I'm not saying give Link a gun i'm saying have a villain whose montra is to make Swords seem obsolete in the world of Hyrule by introducing Rifles and Gattling Guns so firearms you'd normally see from the years 1860 namely.

C'mon it wouldn't be that bad of any idea

>If you're talking about gameplay, I always figured it's because Zelda 2 deviated from the path early on, and was less well received.

This is true, but the funny thing about it is that modern Zelda games have more in common with Zelda 2 than they do the original game. The talking to people, visiting towns, upgrading your magic, etc. I guess it could even be argued that most 3D Zelda combat takes some philosophies from Zelda 2. Especially with enemies like Stalfos or the Iron Knuckles.

Zelda 2 may not be a fondly remembered game by a lot of people, but I think it's more influential than those people believe. I also think it's a great game, but hey what do I know.

Recently, I got an Dell Inspirion 7000 series laptop from Best Buy that was pre-packaged with a NVIDIA GTX 1050 GPU. They claim on the web page that this GPU contains 4gb of VRAM, despite the 1050 supposedly only having 2gb. I thought this was either a typo or perhaps even a marketing ploy and was expecting this PC to ship with only 2 gigs when it arrived at my door; which was fine with me. I double checked using a program called GPU-Z as seen in this screenshot. I also checked the video card's specs again by running DOOM's performance test mode in-game. Once again, it confirmed 4GB of VRAM. This is only the gtx 1050, not the 1050 ti. So do this GPU come with the extra memory for inspirion laptops only? Maybe something is causing a false reading? I've never encountered this before and every source I've heard from on the topic seems to be contrary to the evidence presented.

>"gaming laptops" are for pretentious faggots

No. There is overhead in getting a second computer. Gaming laptops are for people who can afford to spend 600 bucks more on a laptop, but can't afford to spend 1200 more on their desktop and a some kind of little netbook.

Gaming laptops are shit though, don't buy them. At least they have full GPUs now instead of cut-down low power variants.
Actually good cards like the 550 and 660 were strong performers in their day. The mobile versions of them were like half as good, and no cheaper. Now they're the same chips.

Basically this. I have a gaming laptop (HP Omen) that was pretty expensive, but I needed a laptop and a desktop.
I regret it now though, not because the performance isn't good, because it performs great, but I kinda wish I had just gotten a nice desktop setup and bought a $150 laptop from a pawn shop. The parts in my laptop aren't gonna last forever. But for now, they're great.

>the entire game is literally just fetch quests
>not using shrines to move faster or even using horse
So what, you literally went (read: walked) to every village/stable, talked to every single NPC to get every quest, and now you're just walking back and forth across the ENTIRE map looking for items and then keeping a gigantic spreadsheet of what items you still need to find?

and you have the audacity to say we're "lazy bastards" cus we don't think it's fun walking across the SAME fucking map over and over again just looking for the Princess's Dickweed flower but oh wait it only spawns at night between 11:34-11:38 so guess I missed it I'll just walk back across the ENTIRE MAP?

you sound beyond autistic dude do you not have the money for another game or do you seriously think walking is THAT fun in this game? jesus christ if that's legitimately fun then power to ya but don't act like we're the ones in the wrong here cus that seriously sounds like the most retarded thing I've ever heard

I think it's fun enjoying the scenery and finding places "oh, I wonder what over there, haven't seen that" gives you the sense of adventure and skipping shit using shrines robs you that experience.

And you are not walking across the same shit you numb nuts. At times I don't even bother do the quest or I will find a shrine and do sometbing else or prepare to fight a lynel. I mix it up a bit. I didn't have that same feeling with Skyrim

>you sound beyond autistic
I like getting my monies worth. I am sorry, my goal is to enjoy the game as much as possible, not beat it as quickly and then put it down. I am sorry you have ADHD

>looking for the Princess's Dickweed flower but oh wait it only spawns at night between 11:34-11:38 so guess I missed it I'll just walk back across the ENTIRE MAP?

If your willing to go real low rent there's brawhalla. Its not what I'd call good. Its responsive controls wise I'll definitely give it that. Like the controls are fucking great. You'll have a good handle on it within an hour, and then its all just timing after that. Its a smash rip off.

You fight with a bunch of generic ugly characters using dodges, and items and all that jazz. Every charcter has their own weapon. Now here's the thing. The characters are all basically the same and you'll either have to grind to get the new ones or pay real money. There are differences between them, but their so small and negligible that its not even funny, they all feel basically exactly the same.

Its got an ugly, and I do mean ugly art style. Think a flash game on new grounds and your getting there. And there's no real single player to speak of, which would be fine but the player base is well shit. I know that I'm good at fighting games but I went on a rampage in the 10 hours I played this game. I lost matches for like the first 30 to 40 minutes, then I went on a run of just crushing my opponents losing maybe one in every 20 for the 9 hours. I was in the chat casually asking people how long they'd been playing and people were saying oh a year, oh 10 months. I was looking up steam profiles, these people had tons of time on the game, and they fucking sucked.

I mean I was quickly becoming king in a game that felt generic and boring. Albiet with really tight controls. So I gave up. Its free, I never put money in. If your really desperate grab a controller and go. But the player base fucking sucks at this game. I was playing people who were ranked and I was rising way too fast way too easily. And to top it off the game has that shitty flash game feeling the entire time. I wouldn't recommend it. But yeah, it exists.

What's up with all these dumb fan groups not realizing the monumental legal team's threats are completely empty, and there's absolutely no case precedent and law that prevents releasing non-profit modifications or fan games? Seriously, just once I would like to see an amateur dev take this to court (they can probably even maintain their anonymity), because not only will they win, but the negative PR it will create would be enough to make every other major publisher put their overzealous legal teams into time out and stop filing these frivolous lawsuits.

True, but I bet that right case could get some pro bono support from the EFF or ACLU.

Using a trademark you don't own for a product covered under that trademark's scope is pretty straight forward.
There might be an argument that it's fair use, but that applies to copyright, not using a trademarked name.

Now that people have had a month to start wrapping up BotW, how about some discussion of the other Switch games that we're playing?

I picked up a physical copy of Binding of Issac Afterbirth+, and this game works perfectly as a portable title. I never got very into it on PC because it wasn't something that I could sit down and sink a whole afternoon into, but playing bite-sized runs on the bus or shitter really works in it's favor.

Also been playing a ton of Voez. Game is addicting as fuck, and I have a boner for J-Core. S ranking special tracks is impossible unless you're Asian. Debating picking up another copy of Shovel Knight even though I already have it on Steam. I'd get Snipperclips, but I have no one to play with, so I'm holding off. Got Mario Kart 8.1 and Splatoon 1.5 to look forward to playing online at least. Arms might be fun too. Anyone playing Fast RMX? Literally looks like a modern F-Zero, and it sounds pretty great.

ARMS can we talk about ARMS? I feel like Nintendo is going to have another Splatoon with this title. I mean the whole concept and art style fits Nintendo's agenda so well along with the simple to play but possible to master gameplay. The character designs are already memorable.

Here is day 1 tournament gameplay that is currently going on: https://youtu.be/j2oF1J9EO8w?t=2060

But I'm still a little bored with the Switch's library. There are notable games though such as the ones you mentioned. Fast RMX is great but there are certain maps that are completely broken due to rubber banding AI. Its possible to come in 1st place on those maps but it requires a perfect run without any fuck ups.

I'm currently playing Snake Pass which has surprised me in how great it is. Normally indie puzzle games are so bland and lack a real goal besides finishing the game but Snake Pass has a simple little story with visuals scattered across levels that allow you to mentally piece things together. The gameplay is fun and the snake mechanic is brilliant. Each level seems to have a slow increase of new types of puzzles or hazard which keeps the game from becoming dull. I would say this should be the 2nd game you buy after BoTW until more titles arrive.

ARMS looks fun, but I doubt I'll get it because I have no one to play with, and I'm not sure if there's any single player content or CPU opponents. If there is I'll probably reconsider.

Excellent week for games though. Mario Kart 8 and Puyo Puyo Tetris both feel definitive on the Switch, and Kamiko was a pleasant surprise. I'm glad the pace of new games is this brisk, and the Switch is shaping up more like the 3DS and less like the Wii U.

Lol, games are still quite full. I was playing a lot of A Path Beyond not too long ago. I miss being able to join 100 person marathon games though, I couldn't believe that survived all the way until 2013. So many crazy ways we'd come up to win in such a limited game.

Everyone knows the tib series had the best soundtracks.

While it sounds great in concept, having one guy order more than 20 guys or so, and those guys not having a choice to be lead by someone else tends to cause really bad problems 10% of the time or so.
Empires mod demonstrated this pretty effectively by having 64 v 64, with a single person commanded the entire team, placed buildings, did research for weapons, etc.

A lot of people (especially the british) suck at understanding the tools they're working with (assuming players are on the same wavelength, familiar with whatever strategy you're trying to get them to do, will be cohesive and act together without any prompting), recognizing/mitigating flaws in their plans (telling players to do the same thing when some aspect of the plan fails, then blaming the players when it fails a second time), and using feedback in a constructive way, so you end up with commanders who don't listen to their team, then blame them when they lose, and take credit if they somehow win.
