Looks cool, but I have vidya OCD that makes me play series chronologically so I need to play the other games first. Installed the first Far Cry this week, looks pretty nice so far. I remember back when it came out I was really confused by all of the different versions. I think consoles got like 2 completely different versions on Xbox and Xbox 360 compared to the original PC game or something.

I was really hoping that Ubisoft would try to swtich things up, but I’ve read from multiple sources that Far Cry 5 is more or less the same as 3 and 4 with a few changes. I remember a few years ago when someone on this board argued with me and basically said “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Wouldn’t it be interesting if Far Cry was more than just some loot and shoot game?

The enemy AI is terrible. Every location feels exactly the same. The story goes nowhere.

So apparently when the US government sends a federal marshall to arrest a known cult leader, they send one guy armed with a pistol along with a couple local cops. Waco, Texas, whats that? Also, after they don't hear back from that marshall for days or weeks, they make no effort to investigate the disapearance.

The cult supposedly has cut off contact with the outside world, but whats to stop someone just flying to the next county in one of the many planes that were around? The writers could have easily fixed this plothole by saying the cultists had placed SAM launchers around the valley, but I guess the game designers were too busy making neon weapon skins.

Nobody has a Satphone? in this land of doomsday preppers and hardcore naturalists nobody has the one surefire method of communication when you're isolated from the rest of society? Also, why doesn't someone just hike to the next county, and ring the authorities.

There is one character who is planning to fly out of the county with his pregnant wife, but they decide to STAY! in a county filled with crazy cultists.They say they don't want to abandon their property. WTF?! fly out to the next county, ring up the National Guard, then when the whole mess has been resolved go back home.

The stealth mechanics are ruined. There are constant patrols on the roads (every 20-30 seconds a car zooms by), and so there is never a quiet moment to plan tactics. Everything feels completely disposable and there are no stakes.

And why have coop when half the content is blocked from the other player?

Damn the story/cutscenes/acting is top-notch though. The last couple of games have had identifiable villains, but this one wants you to question fucking everything.

It's so thoroughly political that Far Cry 4 suddenly makes sense. I'm suddenly confident that pointless game was just laying groundwork so that they could attack the culture in this game and have it all be "just Far Cry stuff". Like, there's nothing in this game that doesn't have an analogue in the last one, but people woulda flipped their fucking shit if this had come out a couple years ago. And it's not just that: it's a tool for the (American) audience to fit all their wacky shit into a broader context. The whole game is an inoculation against the stuff it's satirising, and an invitation to question a lot of other stuff which normally gets a pass under the banner of the cult of the USA.

RE6's is almost universally considered to have the shittiest story in the mainline series. The only reason 7 was good was because it ignored almost all of the retarded canon of the first six and basically did a soft reboot. And Far Cry has always been idiotic, right from the Dr. Moreau knock-off first game and Blood Dragon, all the way through the formulaic "zany villain of the year" trappings of the Ubishit-era. Far Cry 5's plot is awful even compared to the rock bottom bar set after 3 and 4, and the dumb story, lame characters, and intrusive cutscenes are called out in almost every otherwise positive review I've seen. It's still a fun game, but they story is hot garbage.

There's literally nothing wrong with any of the games having shitty stories by the way, they're clearly intended to be mindless, B-action movie entertainment first and foremost. You're straight delusional if you consider any of the narratives to be "top notch™", or project any profound, deeper meaning into them though.

I mean, is it "widely considered" that or does every game with aggressive political content get a massive astroturf-fest of a manufactured backlash telling us to never play it?

Yeah, amphibians and fish which are capable of spontaneous sex change (and probably a lot which usually don't exhibit this behaviour) are being affected by human pharmaceuticals in the water supply in some places. It's not just whatever Bill Hicks was talking about, a lot of stuff like this is happening. Even birth control pills result in piss containing estrogen/metabolytes: https://www.webmd.com/women/news/20101209/birth-control-pills-not-a-major-source-of-estrogen-in-water-supply

But again, isn't the point of B movies to enjoy the silliness of it rather than be deeply invested in the characters and story? Like, Vaas is not a deep character. He's just hilarious in every scene he's in because of his homicidal emo methhead act.

Welp, I just finished Far Cry 5 and holy shit.
This game doesn't care. It wants you to ask some fucking questions.

Lemme give you an example of how smart this bullshit is: for the entire game you're going to be annoyed by the fact that it preferentialises picking up weapons over looting enemies or reviving allies. It's an irritation because your customised weapons are always far better than any shit that enemies were carrying, so swapping your guns for enemy guns is something that you pretty much never want to do, but the game acts like this is your number one priority whenever you hold X. It's annoying, and feels like a design oversight.

And then you play the final battle, which is a giant gameplay metaphor, and it suddenly makes sense.

>Re6's story was terrible
Yes, but, you fucking assholes, what I said was that RE6 had "cutscenes and setpieces" which are top-notch. And that's significant because in many ways the title is a departure from the rest of the series in that sense. It's a pretty unique game in a lot of ways, and it's definitely not going to have a "good story" because that's not something Resident Evil has ever strived for.

Picture fucking related.

>Vaas was fucking lame

I started playing through the first Far Cry and it's pretty cool. I thought it was an open world game like the sequels so the level structure threw me off at first, but the levels are still pretty fucking huge so that's cool. I also had to unfuck my brain a bit at first to re-acclimate to classic FPS difficulty, but now that I'm a few levels in things are starting to click and I'm having a blast with this jungle warfare shit hiding in bushes picking off some redneck mercs.

Blood dragon was try hard. It was moderately amusing and had some cool set pieces, but the shooting in the later far cry games just feels a bit too off-brand COD for me and I generally find laser weapons lack visceral impact in games (Titanfall 2 nails some of them though). I just struggle to get excited about far cry combat post 2, where death was often super punishing on console.

Blood Dragon was cool in that it expected you to have just played the previous game and just gives you all the skills up front and wants you to sprint around and fucking rip and tear for a change. The theme was fresh and fun at the time, but we all knew it'd be stale and cringy in a couple of years. I can't imagine trying to play it today.

FC1 is a completely different game to the rest of the series. Looking good was its whole gimmick. It was just a linear level-based FPS with cutting-edge draw distance and detail.

It wasn't exclusively a tech demo, the gameplay is actually great. The fact that you can hide or take on the enemies. Weapons felt satisfying to use. Enemies are not quick to die and so are you. It's just great gunplay all around. Many missions had different paths to the objective so it wasn't as linear as you implied. I played it a few months ago and it still hold up pretty well. Had more fun than on FC3.

Crytek originally made the CryEngine with which they made Far Cry for Ubisoft. Then they split with Ubisoft, sold them the rights to Far Cry, and went off and made Crysis for EA.

Ubisoft Montreal developed their own engine from CryEngine, and made the rest of the Far Cry series with it.

And that's how we got two very similar game series with "Cry" in the title.

I'm not against regenerating health per se, it works in Crysis, and it eliminates backtracking, but health packs often added a dimension of strategy in FPS games in that if you were low on health you would have to scope out an area for health packs or time your moves.

people complain about dumbing down, but really backtracking could really grind the action to a halt, particularly in an FPS, not always though.

Deus Ex really nailed it with the regeneration augment, in that you could turn it on optionally and heal yourself but it would drain your charge. Idk, it's hard to balance these things, but if you can just recharge instantly every time you move behind something, the game becomes a shooting gallery.

Okay I bought FC5 over the weekend. Its a really fun game but is this shit normal? im really annoyed at how its almost impossible to do anything without enemies constantly showing up.

Ill just be hanging out in a base and enemy planes will start bombing runs into the base. We take them out and they keep showing up!

Then I start traveling to the next location and what seems like 10 white vans will pop up out of nowhere and I will get into constant gun fights.

Ill try to talk to NPC's and all of a sudden they will be like "HERE WE GO! GET READY" and they will start running around like jackasses because somehow they are spotting enemies that are like a mile away

At this point I am bringing hired guns with me just to be fodder and keep enemies busy while I go about my business.

>>I blame annual releases and greedy and lazy devs.

Greedy publishers. Devs are talented. Publishers have no skills other than manipulating money/people. They're leeches who manipulate the market so that creative people are forced to be their slaves or take huge risks and go bankrupt. They don't care about the game, they only care about selling the game to as many people as possible, even if it destroys the franchise. Then they'll just buy a new franchise and make billions until it gets ruined too. Devs are passionate about making games. Publishers come in and divide the original teams up, ruin their natural cooperation, bastardize their ideas, force the devs to work on stupid shit, smaller deadlines, etc... Most of them stop giving a fuck at that point, but it wouldn't matter anyway.

Earlier games are usually a lot better because publishers realize the idea/nostalgia of the first game will sell the second game and they don't have to put as much money into it, or give as much control to the developers after that. They add tons of gimmicks to make extra money and sell copies to a wider audience. It inevitably ruins everything. People stay in denial because they love the idea of the game and there's still a shred of what they once loved. After it happens 5 times they finally wise up and get pissed, but by then an entirely new generation is buying the games, ignorant of how much better they used to be. If not, the publishers just set their sites on the next thing they want to assimilate into their money scheme.

Obviously, every once in a while publishers will allow some great idea to become a first game without interfering too much. It's all downhill from there. All we can do is hope for a few good games before nothing is salvageable any more.

Fucking capitalism

I think it's deliberate and the enemies are actually sending out hunting parties to find you. Like instead of moving through an indifferent environment, it's a big game of hide and seek and when they leave you alone it's because you've evaded them or fatigued them with murder. It's kind of hard to tell without being explicitly told since this isn't how these games usually work but towards the end I felt like this was the pattern I was observing and started treating them that way.
I even started firing warning shots instead of immediately engaging, with helicopters in particular, and by the end it felt like I'd established mutual respect because enemies would stop and watch me from a distance instead of attacking.

Maybe that was scripted endgame stuff or I was just high, though.

Hit the wall in the original Far Cry. I'm on mission 11 or 12 now and fighting the mutated soldiers with rocket launchers isn't very fun. I'm guessing the rest of the game isn't going to go back to the cool feel of the beginning of the game with the guerilla warfare in the jungles and instead it's just going to continue devolving into a horror shooter with the mutated primate things taking over. Even fighting the armored humans is becoming a pain. Oh well, I think there's like 20 levels in this so I'll try to push through and beat it.

If you're talking about the part where you just exited the facility and it's night, then just stealth your way out of the area down to the road. If you're talking about the part with the helicopter, it's supposed to be a mad dash, you're not meant to fight your way through.

Just finished getting past those parts, on level 15 now. The prior level was a lot of fun since it went back to daytime fighting guerrillas in the jungle on all of those little islands. That was great, and the boss fight against the helicopter on the slowly sinking ship was really cool, too. It looks like I'm back to fighting mutant assholes at night though on the level I left off on, though, so that sucks.

I'm looking forward to finishing this one and starting Far Cry 2, though. I enjoy the first one for the most part, I just wish it stuck with the guerrilla warfare gameplay instead of dipping in and out of horror shooter and fighting assholes with rocket launchers that can kill you in 1 or 2 hits.

Anyone ever play the port on Xbox 360? Controller qualms aside, I think it's like a spinoff or retelling of the first game with smaller levels but I guess you get weird animal powers or something? I'm wondering if it would be worth it to hunt down a cheap copy to play since Far Cry: Instincts is exclusive to Xbox 360.

Speaking of which, has anyone ever played the first Just Cause? I picked it up for like 80 cents off a Steam sale earlier this year and it was alright, but I got about an hour in and found out that the version on Xbox 360 is superior in pretty much every way because the PC version is an original Xbox game port. Ain't that some shit?

Far Cry Instincts and Far Cry Instincts: Evolution were for Xbox. Far Cry Instincts: Predator was for Xbox 360.

Far Cry Instincts is not a port. It reuses a lot of stuff but it's a different game. The gameplay is most similar to the original and has a lot of sneaking.

Far Cry Instincts: Evolution is a completely different game and you gain badass feral powers. The gameplay has a lot more action and craziness and the campaign is shorter than Instincts, but it's still really good and my favorite.

Far Cry Instincts: Predator is the only one made for Xbox 360 and doesn't have its own campaign as far as I know, but it includes the other 2 campaigns with updated graphics. Supposedly you have to beat the Instincts campaign to unlock the Evolution campaign, and "enhanced" versions sometimes screw things up and look worse than the original. It's up to you, but if you want to play Evolutions campaign right away then get Evolutions instead.

Also congrats for missing 3 of the greatest multiplayer/map-editor games of ALL TIME, which you will never be able to experience properly again, even in the newer games.

Neat, thanks for the info! Only Instincts in backwards compatible with 360 and Evolution isn't backwards compatible for X1 so instead of digging out my original Xbox I'll probably just grab a copy of Evolution off eBay some time if it's like $10.

Also, map editors were never really my jam but I once worked with a guy that got into the industry because of his Far Cry 2 maps, so I've heard of how awesome the map editors in the old Far Cry games are.

I finished two missions at once. The one where you take the outpost and have to burn the bliss flowers. However, I also hit the third point on Faiths meter to where I was told "you've been blessed"..... but... nothing happened.

Usually when you get one of those "You're being hunted" or "You've been marked" you get one of those forced kidnapping missions. However I kept playing and nothing happened.

I completely filled Faith's meter and im not getting the option to go after her.
