I think it's been estabilished that zelda games are not rpgs, but what about the witcher games? These are called rpgs, but you can't even play as your own character you made. Are witcher games epg because of XP and spending skill points? But then this would mean that far cry 3 is an rpg. Is it because witcher games have branching storylines? Resident evil games have branching storylines, are they rpgs.

And if rpgs are games where you can play with your own OC character, then are saintsrow games rpgs? Are nba and wrestling games where you make your character rpgs?

>is far cry 3 an rpg?

You develop your character through buying skills with xp and by buying gear. You make choices that determine who the main character is. You are playing a role. Yes, Farcry 3 is an RPG. Obviously, there's a lot of genre bending going on here, but while Farcry would at it's core be called an FPS, it's not wrong to call it an RPG.

I guess it kinda is but its more of a first person shooter than anything else really. You can say the same thing about Doom 2016 and Doom Eternal. At some point, you're going to have to draw a line somewhere. I blame Ubisoft and Bethesda for trying to appeal to a larger crowd of customers really.

I don't understand. So fortnite is just a rip off of pubg?

I heard about this game so much and that's all it is?


All this time I thought this was some futuristic insane game that only 12 year olds played because it would be too advanced for my old brain to even comprehend and I would explode if I even dared to look at it.

...and all it is is a rip off of a really fucking terrible unfun piece of crap game

I just finished a few of the starfox command (for the ds) endings. I don't know, I really like the game. Maybe I didn't hate it because it's the first star fox game I ever played. The main complaints are that the levels are very repetitive... and they are, but I don't mind it since I like the gameplay a lot. And the other complaint is that the story is atrocious, but I think it's so bad it's good. It's like a deviant art soap opera with star fox and crystal bitching and crying all the time, it's really, really bad and unintentionally funny. Doesn't help that the art is awful (the drawings).

Hi all, I’m looking for a new racing game to play, any suggestions welcome
Personally I’m not a huge fan of the open world racing games that are so popular these days, I much prefer just a game with well designed tracks.
As far as handling goes I’d say 70/30 arcade/sim. I definitely lean on the arcade side more but still like the cars to feel and control nicely.
Also found out that I’m not into those rally racing games like Dirt when I tried that out.
And since the thread will be pointless once my question is answered let’s just make this a general about racing games

Rise: race the future. Stupid fucking name but the gameplay is solid
No bullshit just big multirace cups, challenges, time trials etc. Cars feels good and the options they give you aren't amazing but enough to find something you like. Has the drifting of a weighty need for speed game but then the speed of something like wipeout and water sections that feel like wave racer
It's a really cool game and I think its underrated as hell
It's even under 20 bucks

Earlier today you had a bunch of different drivers like V8 and Indycar do races on iRacing just for shits and giggles. Guys just want to race, even if it's in an overly expensive simracing setup that costs double my car. And here I thought I was fancy for having VR to race with!


>>750843
Solid game, if you want some 6th gen nostalgia there's always FlatOut. Alternatively if you're looking to expand on the whole Finnish/Scandinavian redneck experience there's always My Summer Car.


>>749469
It's because like a lot of games it fell for the whole open world thing, on top of having only 8 spots to finish a race in the game based solely on compass bearing. Don't forget that the remaster is pretty much worse in nearly every way compared to the original.


>>750219
>>750222
Racing games get real enthusiasmal expensive, especially iRacing where it charges you a monthly subscription ON TOP OF piecemeal DLC. I think the "best value" for a higher level sim racing title would be Assetto Corsa: Ultimate Edition on a sale because of the mod scene.

What are some good games to play with friends, who often don't really play games but only do now because we're in quarantine and there's nothing else to do?
Games that work well with Steam Remote Play Together are great, because not everybody has to buy game in question.

Just played Regular Human Basketball for a couple of hours, great fun!

Been looking for a similar experience to DF but with a bit more polish, stumbled across DwarfCorp, anyone here play it? Is it worth the price tag? Saw that the lead developer stepped down from the project and the game is on hold.

Makes me think of Gnomoria, an overall fantastic game that delivers a pretty good experience overall; but it feels incomplete and once you get the grasp of the system becomes very samey.

A general question to the guild: Why is it that almost all of these games start off with such great potential, but often lead to development hell and abandonment from the developers? I get that simulations are literally developing entire worlds, but is the process so grueling that only a few crazy developers can keep on these projects for decades?

Also everyone smokes half a pack a day in Italy. Same with China. In America the vast majority of people smoke weed which fucks up your lungs far less than a nicotine addiction (and most of the cigarette smokers are older anyway). That's why you'll see all these people in America confirmed to have Corona virus who exhibit no symptoms worse than the flu: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=srdM80Ua_1s

You haven't played Your Turn To Die yet, /vg/? Why? If you liked Danganronpa and Zero Escape, be sure to give this free jap indie game a try. You can even play this on your browser and phone, but some puzzles and minigames have been reported to be more difficult without a mouse. Currently the game is up to chapter 2 part 2, and you have about 7~10 hours of playtime available depending on your reading speed.

Chapter 3's first part is out in Japanese, but untranslated still. Be careful not to spoil if you know about it.

I just finished tyranny for the third time on the hardest settings possible (new game + lets you keep powering up the same character over multiple plays). I also enjoyed divinity: original sin. Looking for recommendations on another CRPG that is similar to either of those. Doesn't have to be a fantasy setting, but an in depth spell system is a plus.

only the first one. That was a pretty good attempt at melding real time shooty with RPG stuff for the time same as Morrowind for that time. But as we all learned from that era is real time and RPG does not mix well. Some thing the industry apparently failed to learn. Or did it as the rest of ME isn't even close to an RPG and come to think of it neither is TES.

  • Good but that is a completely different game, the only guns here are blackpowder pistols though there are giant reptilian beasts but it doesn't matter... You seem foolish to disregard things and prove your worth to online strangers with such meaningless accomplishments.

>Stat based
  • There are no stats other than your health, mana, hunger, thirst, and gear rating.

> runs like D&D with either turns or by allowing me to pause the game.
  • You did not even bother to watch gameplay or see reviews at all before judging and that says alot about you.

>I'm not just looking for an RPG, I'm looking for a specific kind of game.
  • If this is how you dismiss and critique any suggestion without the slightest inclination to look for yourself you're an absolutely helpless, ignorant, biased, inept, critical, and lost cause of an opinionated fool who deserves no help...

Go search for your own perfect game, you deserve nothing more than the dissatisfaction of searching endlessly to suit your hopelessly difficult and snide self... You absolutely portray yourself like the kind of child who would rage quit and uninstall a game after getting completely owned because it's not a satisfactory power fantasy.

Git gud scrub. Nb.
