Buyers Remorse- / Shitting on games-thread? by Ronny Fulliburghs - Sun, 15 Apr 2018 01:59:49 EST ID:1f0BDLMb No.717531 Ignore Report Quick Reply

After playing the beta of GW WILDLANDS with friends,
we decided to buy it through a deal.

Turns out the game is boring as fuck,
every mission is the same,
the weapons shoot all like garden-hoses and
they didn't even fix the stupid enemy-AI or HUD-issues!

Now I returned because of the Splinter-Cell-Update,
turns out the game shoves Microtran$actions into your face mid-game
and is still boring as fuck.

Ghost Recon is long dead sadly, and Ubisoft games are basically an indistinguishable, generic gruel.

Anyway,
>Bought an Xbox 360 at launch to play Perfect Dark Zero. Turns out the game was a complete piece of garbage, and the 360 red ringed like 3 times before I got one that worked.
>Bought the steel case special editions of Doom 3, Splinter Cell: Conviction and Resident Evil 5. Seems like every 360 game I got hyped for turned out to be a piece of shit.
>I saved up to buy Star Fox: Assault on release thinking it was going to rule like 64. I'd rather play Adventure again than suffer through that piece of shit.
>I keep buying Mario & Luigi games like clockwork, and I never have any fun with them. I guess I just keep holding out hope someday one of them will be as good as Mario RPG or the first two Paper Marios.

I'd say the worst ones to really hurt my feelings deep down inside are:

Burnout Paradise - I hate the focus on freeroam, point-to-point tracks and online multiplayer. It completely ruined it for me. Also, I love constantly being told someone's amazing track records while I am trying to play solo! Fuck you, Criterion. lol at the $40 for the remaster

Mercenaries 2 - What a fucking grind. Also, fuck you for making civilians dive into the road if I drive my muscle car too fast and charging me for their deaths. I got about 30% through the game and then never picked it up again. Playground of destruction was so much simpler and more enjoyable.

What the fuck happened to the Need for Speed franchise? Fuck, I'm making myself sad.

Need for speed has always been popular, peaked with underground. Greatest tragedy was Gran Turismo Sport. Barebone game, no weather dynamic, no offline career, no offline save system. I could go on and on but the series is dead and i would much rather just move on.

Mercenaries 1 was great.

I didn't like the cutscenes and the storyline in 2, plus they basically took the most popular character from the first game and made him the protagonist, and I liked the other two. Plus NK was a much more interesting location and atmosphere.

I only ever played NFS Underground. It was alright, fun.

Never played mercenaries 1 but I loved 2. Sure it has plenty of flaws but the amount of stuff you could do in terms of calling in weapons, vehicles, airstrikes on the fly made it really fun.
Tons of ways to complete those open optional objectives, you could attack with a chopper, call in a tank, go crazy with airstrikes, or just go on foot and go crazy with a fuel burst rocket launcher.

Tbh the first game definitively sounds more intriguing though.

I'm gonna have to go with Final Fantasy XV. Two years ago, it was released as an unfinished game, and now it's fully realized with more DLC on the way. At this point I don't care to see what the game is like now. This was the realest kick in the balls I've ever received from a gaming company.

I have only ever regretted buying one game, and that was Ping Pals for the original DS. When the DS came out i grabbed a few launch titles and didn't realize that it was basically pictochat but nobody else had it so I played it alone.

I probably put at least 30 hours into Ping Pals drawing and writing to myself and decorating my character. It was really depressing but not the worst thing that happened around that time.

Yeah i regret buying it too but not too much. I only hate it cause the story is an unfinished pile of garbage. I get so annoyed by Noctis always leaning forward like he's about to fall when he's running that i had to take breaks from playing the game. Major events in the story are being sold back to you as DLC, its just so fucking sleazy its disgusting. Imagine if you played FF7 and the Nibelheim Incident was sold back to you as DLC later on after you finished the game. By that point you don't even give a shit anymore. And why is everyone wearing black and look like a japanese gigolo its fucking disgusting. When the game was released i was kind of ok with it cause i didnt know what it was, but i went to Tokyo last summer and walked around Shinjuku and all i saw was japanese men dressed up like FFXV characters. FF7 remaster is gonna be shit

Yeah, that game was a piece of shit. There was probably more money put in to the marketing than the game itself. I bought Brink on release and like everyone promptly dropped it. The story and world setting seemed really cool but the game itself was trash.

For me my biggest regret purchase would have to be Rust. The game itself is so fun, but it only makes sense to play with people you know in real life. The community is so toxic, you can befriend someone in game and they will betray you at the first opportunity.

This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it is psychologically taxing because I used to try to talk with people and work with them, but have gotten burned so many times that now I just shoot people on sight because nobody can be trusted. It feels bad because I want to be friendly to people, but because of the way the community is and the way the game works, the risk/reward of helping a new player is a no brainer: shoot them in the head before they get too close.

It essentially punishes you for doing the right thing and the cognitive dissonance of it all makes me pretty uncomfortable. Being a good friendly person is the fast track to getting fucked over and losing all your shit.

In fact, the game has probably made me have a much dimmer worldview in real life. I used to think people were like me, just wanting to be friendly and exploring what is to be found, but in reality they are mostly psychopaths that would chop you up with a hatchet and eat your flesh when they're a bit hungry if there wasn't a huge societal and governmental apparatus to prevent them from doing it.

Just now I spent about 15 minutes helping a new player that begged me to let them live, explaining some of the mechanics and stuff in the hopes of getting a new ally. I walk away for 30 seconds to take a piss and they have caved my brain in with a pickaxe. Is this really the state of nature of people? Do they really feel no remorse or guilt after something like that?

How can I look at a person in real life when I know there is a murderous conniving animal hidden behind their face? After 300 hours, this question is why I hate Rust.

The only part of FF XIV i've enjoyed is Kingsglave and the ending of the game.

Kingsglave is really good and the I did get some feels from the ending of the game.

But the overall pratice of selling parts of the game as DLC as well as platform exclusive attire? Come the fuck on.

Picked up BLOPS3 the summer after it released because there was a fast paced FPS hole in my gaming at the time and I convinced myself I wanted it.

Ran like absolute dogshit on a machine that could handle witcher 3 on high at 30-40fps. Awful awful optimization, had to play it on potato mode and then discovered that the gameplay was dogshit too, every assault rifle felt the same, all the weapons felt dinky as fuck, campaign was a boring "shoot them as they pop their heads up" fuckfest. The multi-player maps were tiny and the wallrunning was terribly slow and useless.

Titan fall 2 released that fall and oh boy did that wash the bad taste out of my mouth.



I regretted buying For Honor new as I grew bored of it fairly quickly but I've been back to it with friends enough to figure I've now nearly got my money's worth.


Oh yeah I bought BF: hardline. Lol. Campaign was pretty bad and weirdly dissonant, though I admit they really tried to do something different and interesting. Some of the gadgets like the zipline, poison gas/gas mask, grappling hook etc were pretty fun and the multi-player had it's own feel, but ultimately it was just a chunk worse feeling to play than BF4 after it was fixed, and the playerbase was 70% total chucklefucks.

I was just turned off by the game pretty fast and the double-cross thing. Mercs 1 has a great opening driving out of a plane immediately into a warzone, and the tropical setting didn't do it for me like the foggy brown setting of North Korea with the particular style of architecture, it really felt dangerous to go off the beaten path into some canyon where you might find a tank.

People are just monkeys in shoes. Some monkeys are chill, some will happily rip your face off for looking at them funny.

My best experience with rust was when I spawned after dying and met another naked player, we then found someone with armour and guns who told us to fight and said he would give the winner a bow. I won because the other guy just ran around the tree screaming for me not too kill him. he gave me the bow, I was severely tempted to shoot him in the back of the head but every time I pulled the bowstring back he turned around and I acted all innocent.

Lack of actual consequences, years of playing games against AI and lack of empathy because you don't know the rando/can't see their face all factor into this sort of behaviour. It's unfortunate because it leads to things like DayZ and Rust turning into shoot on sight deathmatches, which is why you have to Ally with friends and form your own little protected tribal nation.

Honestly, the only reason i watched it was for Sean Bean but i was pleasantly surprised. Its a decent movie, but i felt the visuals and Sean Bean Carried the entire thing. The story was weak, but the other Voice Actors weren't really good themselves, at least not for their part. Lean Headey was wayy too old for Lunafreya's role. A forty four year old woman shouldn't be playing the role of a 20something girl. Aaron Paul also was pretty mediocre. The character he was playing wasn't great anyways so i guess i shouldn't be surprised. Everyone else were meh. Honestly, the movie should be watched only for Sean Bean and the action scenes, skip all the other talking parts.

Red Orchestra 2.
That game is on another level of shittiness. I can't even begin to list why is it overrated as fuck. Look. I'm not a casualfag. I loved ARMA, OP Flashpoint, (1k hours on CSGO also, kinda different game tho) and especially bought Red Orchestra 2 because everyone said it was a realistic, immersive WW2 game, just what I wanted.
Wtf is that game? How can anyone enjoy this? The maps are retarded as fuck by design. There's no variety or anything dynamic about it. You just get spawnkilled over and over, and when you don't, you camp with a sniper.
THE GRAPHICS. OH GOD.
Keep in mind I still play CS 1.6 and Quake 3. I don't care about low res graphics. But I cant stand ugly as hell, bland as fuck, eye cancer graphics. And every single map in that game is that: brownish sludge, no more than 2 different wall textures, you just have to play the game to see how bad it really looks, it really made me throw up.
There was just nothing enjoyable about that game for me. I'm not scared of a steep learning curve, I bought the game because I expected it to be a challenging, complex, deep WW2 game, like everyone said it was.
What I got was staring at the shittiest brown wall texture for 2 hours while constantly getting spawnkilled. Now If i wanted that, I would play CoD 1, at least that game is enjoyable.
RO is the shittiest, most pretentious, most overrated shit game of all time.

The story is still an unfinished, incomprehensible disaster even if you watch Kingsglaive and the miniseries. Can you name one other game that makes you do that? Not only did I regret buying it, but FFXV really is one of the worst games I've played. The combat is complete shite, and the open world is boring and empty. It baffles me how most people constantly shit on FFXIII, but give this game a pass.

The combat at the beginning is a pain to get through but it gets better. The huge big monsters definitely makes it more interesting but yeah overall its nothing remarkable. but I agree with you in every other point, the game is a mess and it does get a pass but its only because it was hyped for like a decade. It was too hyped to fail. I don't think the next Final Fantasy game is going to matter as much no matter how much they hyped it though, and if they did lets be glad it will be another ten years before we see the next one.

Also i heard from someone though im not sure that the FFXV mobile game generated more revenue than the actual game its based on. This series found its place in a strange place, Old fans want it to get better and are still somewhat loyal to the series but all the people who made FF what it was are long gone. You have to be very skeptical of every video game SquareEnix is going to be a part of from now on. They want that GTA5 money but they are too stupid to know how to do it. All they managed to do is kill every western series they managed to get their hands on and wreck the Japanese ones just as much. I'm not a Dragon Quest fan but i hear they feel the same way about their series as well.

Sega is doing the same thing with Valkyria Chornicles 4 now. The dlc in the first one was actually added stories to expand on the most loved characters, it was a really nice touch. with VK4 The beach Episode and some extra missions that expands on the story are locked in the season pass. I can never buy a game on release anymore, i have to wait six months to a year after release for the "complete" edition to actually get to play the full game. I'm always six months late with video games.

Yeah. The mobile FF games pull in silly amounts of cash because they're gatcha and have the fanbase of players that are old enough to have jobs now.

I bought the new Dragon Quest : Builders for Switch and while I'm not that far into it yet, it just seems... like, a cross between Minecraft and Terraria, and not even the best parts of either game. The controls are really clunky and I feel almost no drive to go towards the next goal I'm being railroaded towards. One would have hoped by this point people could make something better than this, especially from the Dragon Quest line. But then again I never really got into DQ to begin with, I just saw decent reviews and it was switch exclusive and I only had 2 Switch games at the time (now I have 4)
I don't regret it yet, because it'll still be there anytime I feel up to playing it again, maybe after playing something else I enjoy more.

all i can say is try the game and you'll see it's unplayable
I love this type of games, I don't mind getting killed all the time, what i do mind is getting killed at spawn and have nothing to do with it due to ridiculous map design
the game ran shitty and janky even tho i met the requirements and played on low (microlags, sometimes 0 fps sometimes 144), weapons didnt feel all that special (supposedly bullet drop etc is simulated, idk about that, i never felt anything about that while shooting in the game, bullets just went where i aimed, i kept using sniper positions with SMGs and 1 hitted people with them constantly), i had a good connection in the middle of europe and still couldn't find a single server that wasnt full of people just lagging all over the place, I just felt like I had no chance to play the game, and what I've seen sucked ass.
The graphics are just depressing as hell. they look so bland and horrible, no fucks were given by the devs in that area.
When i started playing ARMA, even Americas Army, Battlefield or any other non-casual mmofps game, I actually had a chance to do things, get killed because i did them wrong, then go at them again considering what i did wrong and the game mechanics, get killed again, then get killed less starting to get a grip on things. thats what i call a learning curve which i love to be steep and covering a loth of depth. thats what keeps me coming back for games like ARMA.
my experience of this game was: no matter what server i connected to, i was placed on a shitty ass map with textures so bland, BROWN and mushy it made me throw up, constantly geting killed in the first 10 seconds around the spawn area by a sniper. When that didnt happen, I wandered around the map until I've found the sniper positions, beat the sniper there in the head with my weapon, then I crouched there, spawn killing people in 1 shots with an SMG for half an hour. I then refunded the game on Steam. This was my experience.
Realistic WW2 shooter my ass.

and im not critizing the graphics cause i played on low settings (although thats mostly standard for me when talking about online games, to get the most client side performance possible, and not one game i ever played on low looked this bad), i did that only in an effort to try and eliminate the inconsistent fps, which didnt help.
All I'm saying in the graphics department it looks so bad it's insulting, it really shows no one fucking cared about any details, or the color palette, or anything. I'll happily play a 20 year old game if i can see the developers actually tried their best and put effort into making things pleasant to look at. If i see a newish game with graphics that just scream "idgaf" I tend to throw up no matter the fancy post processing or whatever.
This wouldn't be a reason to bash the game for me if it was otherwise enjoyable, I care very little about graphics in general, but with this game, the offensively bad textures were just the icing on the cake.

I have played it I have over 1200 hours on it. The game has a step learning curve and moves fairly clunky, but spawn killing is almost impossible and I think your bullshitting here. If you start to run toward anything you get kill, part of the game is patience and or having a good team leader, to have you respawn somewhere safe.

obviously if you manage to play for 1200 hours you'll find the game likeable
i felt no motivation to learn to play this shit and all what I've said happened.
I had the most fun when i was camping in a snipers spot with a fucking ppsh and kept killing every single person that ran out of the spawn building area. at that point the game felt like a complete joke, a worse Call of Duty 1, so i refunded.
Interestingly i never had this problem with other games that are hard to master. That's what I was looking for when I got this game and that's what kinda games I play.
I've found nothing enjoyable about this game for 2 hours and the game mechanics or design did not seem impressive enough to be worth getting invested into. I couldn't find a server where there was any kind of communication or team leading.
This is also the ONLY game I ever refunded on steam.

Yeah. Obviously I base my opinion on a multiplayer game by playing on a single server with bots.
It would've been better tho, at least they wouldn't have lagged as much as the actual people.

Just because I was disappointed, didn't mean i didn't have fun with the game. Im a long time final fantasy fan, so I appreciate all the monsters, music and bitches. I was expecting it to be more fleshed out, thats why I was disappointed. I had more fun with this game than any dragon age, mass effect, or assassins creed.

FFXV wasn’t fleshed out at all when it was released, and now early adopters need to to pay $40 for A) The Royal Edition Update B) The next season pass.

Like the other guy wrote, it’s a kick in the balls, but at least I won’t be buying sixty dollar games anymore.

Spore.

I was so excited for it and it got a really good review in the gaming mag I read at the time, so I got it at full price at launch. The guy at the store made a point that there were no returns, but didn't actually explain the reason why: the disk had only three installs. Not three installs on different computers, three installs maximum. And of course the game had been gutted by EA, so that none of the cool creature physics that everyone saw Robin Williams play with were there, none of the cool space effects were there, and half the gameplay was shitty real time strategy sections.

Also evolution in Spore comes down to a really shallow parts upgrade system, and terraforming is basically moving from a handful of predetermined stages, and they tried so hard to cover that fact up before launch.

Something about the map design just turned me off of that game compared to BF3 and the bad company games. It had nice improvements but everything seems to have this weird color filter over it and the maps are just weird. I want some classic wide open maps with lots of enterable buildings that you can hunker down in and fight from instead of them just being enclosed CQC areas with maybe 1 window to snipe from.

Dead Space 3.
There no point where I wasn't thinking "This was probably really scary at some point in development, then altered to promote more cinematic, action-oriented gameplay".

There's enemies that use vents and crawl on walls and only attack when you're not looking, and could be terrifying if you never knew if you'd gotten them all
Except they literally never stop screaming after they spawn and have massive yellow orbs, and the door to the next area doesn't unlock until you're safe.
There's enemies that disguise themselves as corpses
Except they jump up and start screaming as soon as you get within 15 feet.
There's parts where you're in a white-out, slowly freezing
Except they show you where to walk so there's no question of whether you might have gotten off-track when you were attacked.
There's vent/wall-covers that enemies can hide in to attack from areas you thought were safe
Except they literally always contain enemies so you know they're going to come from there as soon as you see one.

The entire game was littered with design choices that have no place in a horror game, like 15 second cinematic introductions to new types of enemies.
Also micro-transactions for ammo/upgrade parts in a single-player campaign.

Pic unrelated.

If emphasis on story over gameplay is your thing, give it a try. However I think both were severely lacking. Just play SOMA instead. I played through it entirely on ketamine and it was the most existential experience of my life.

What exactly were you hyped for that you were let down by?

I mean, you know if it's made by Obsidian that it'll be an unbalanced, badly optimized game with a shitty unfinished ending. That's a given. However, they do consistently hide a quality game underneath all that.

Another game i regret Re-Buying is World in Conflict.

At the time, I found it an enjoyable game, graphics were nice, story was something different but it was good enough for me.

So I picked it back up a few years ago and...lets just say the times haven't been kind to it. It's still a good looking game, but with games like Wargame: Red Dragon out, it's pretty lackluster and quite boring.

I bought dook long after it was exposed for being shit for $4 and I'm still not sure if I'm surprised how bad it actually was or impressed with how passable it was at times. I bought it again for PS3 and I'm going to try and play it whenever I forget how long the loading times were.

I had a good time with both TDD and AMFP. They're really two different styles of survival-horror games (though I think they're supposed to exist within the same shared universe) and this makes sense since they were developed by two different development studios.
SOMA was made by the same studio that did Amnesia: TDD (and Penumbra before that) and I think it's their best work. It's less scary than Amnesia, but the game makes up for its horror lacking with interesting sci-fi ideas that other games don't dare to attempt to convey. I don't regret buying any of these games.

I love the dook so it was gonna be a day one buy regardless.

I just didn't know how bad it was. The game play tried to bring back the days of old with the multiple weapon selections (which was fine) but the gameplay itself felt like it was from late 2000s/early 2010 and poor Duke himself felt SEVERELY outdated, like an old man trying to be cool.

They didn't have to do Nukem that way.

What pisses me off most about Starbound is the lack of simulation in the world. You have a world of blocks, and enemies and animals randomly wander around and either bump into each other or shoot each other until one dies. Sometimes a block can kill (lava, boobytraps, and it kills an enemy or animal. That's it.

Terraria was pretty fucking barebone in its simulation (because it had unique enemy behaviors) and even that was more advanced than Starbound.

A lack of simulation in a build-and-explore game ruins it. There's no point in digging up rare shit and building new machines when you're just doing it in an empty space.
