    I'm gonna pop my cherry

    You have conclusively proved (at least in part) the proplem with everyone who uses that pathetic hashtag. They are some of the bias, ignorant and arrogant fanboys on the internet and see their shite everywhere. The are abusuve, insulting and constantly lie through their teeth about PC and consoles in attempts to prove their absolute nonsense. Not to mention the "joke" is a parody of a fascist regime responsible for the deaths of millions. Before you go off on a tirade calling me "Console Peasant", I game primarily on a custom built water-cooled PC with a 1080ti and a 1440p 144Hz GSnyc monitor and I I've forgotten more about PC technology than most of the posers on that reddit page will ever even know, and I don't even consider myself an expert. My apologies everyone especially @The Blackangel. I don't want your topic to go off the rails but "PCMaster Race" is a trigger for me.

    Bad games with good aesthetics

    Genji: Days of Blade comes to mind I was SO excited for this PS3 launch title one as I loved the original Genji on the PS2. Things started off promisingly as this game was gorgeous for it's time, and would probably still hold up quite well today. Unfortunately it appears that all that effort focused on the games graphics are aesthetic design should have been better split on actual game. The story was boring and didn't lead of its predecessor very well and the combat felt slow and disjointed compared to the previous effort. Then there was the camera, oh GOD the camera! It would pan away putting enemies off-screen, it followed the player's character way to close and just the player had no input on it at all. It was just not intuitive at all and made the game almost unplayable. What a disappointment, but it was the perfect game summarize the PS3's early days. Prettier than the PS2, but worse.

    I've been a fan of the RE franchise since I was 13. RE2 (the original) was the game that brought me to the dance. I became obsessed with survival horror after experiencing that game, to the point where I went and played Silent Hill and other famous franchises, all revolving around a high level of the creepiness factor. The thing is, all was going well, until RE4 arrived. I prefer to just count CVX as the real RE4, and kind of ignore RE4 and garbage like the two 'Chronicles' games and whatnot, as even being a part of the series these days. In fact, I'm also tired of Capcom going back to 1998 over and over again in general. It's seriously just lame that they cannot move forward, without trying to move backwards concurrently. RE4 is not a bad game, per se. But it ain't really a proper RE game in my eyes. Shinji Mikami leaving Capcom and Team Silent leaving Konami I feel is what killed the two biggest horror series. Now RE has been a cash cow for over a decade, with incredibly lame spin offs and now two hollow remakes, that to me feel more like a parody of their respective originals. If fans liked them, it's okay to do so. I'd never blatantly flame anybody for speaking up about how they feel. But RE4 feels kind of dumb in many ways, like with having the enemies drop stuff, and that merchant who is moving around places like he's got magical abilities or something, and the endless amount of enemy gauntlets you blast your way through, and that cheesy (in a bad way) voice acting, and the most 'not RE enemies' enemies you face up to. Revelations 2 feels like a cut and paste of The Last of Us. I seriously doubt RE will be restored to its past glory due to how crappy the games are becoming, with Capcom focusing on stealing ideas from movies or keeping up with the latest trends. And it's sad. I saw RE3 footage online, and every time Jill speaks, I swear, you don't care about her like you did with the 1999 version. At all! The other characters also feel one-dimensional. You cared about the original characters, as they had soul. Here, I don't know. It feels like a bland third person shooter that just wants to be RE, but it feels so empty.

    @Crazycrab you're not the only one triggered by that term. It makes my blood boil too. You have nothing to apologize for. But that term has almost singlehandedly driven me away from this forum.

    But that's precisely my point. The console IS meant to do only one thing. As such, they are able to concentrate more on the game itself, because that's all the console is crafted to do. Whereas a PC is set up to do hundreds of other things on top of gaming.

    I actually can't believe their bothering at all. It was realeasd in incomplete state, reviews were mixed, and it was a commercial flop having only sold around 630,000 copies worldwide. The only reason I can think of is that their trying to cash in on the success of the far better NieR: Automata.

    Mass Effect Franchise

    So during this Coronavirus outbreak where I like most people have been spending most of my time at home, I've been playing lots of Mass Effect. I started with some Mass Effect Andromeda but for some reason it made me want to play the first Mass Effect game so I switched to that. I beat the game with both the soldier and the adept. Originally I had beaten the game with my favorite character class, the vanguard, but this time I tried it with different classes. Now I am on to Mass Effect 2 playing with my imported character, my adept from Mass Effect 1. Eventually I will probably go on to play Mass Effect 3. From what I heard lots of people prefer the original three Mass Effect games over Mass Effect Andromeda. Even though Andromeda is the latest release and is a more advanced game people like the first three better.

    I still think you should wait, but If you insist a can prepare a build for you on PCPartPicker. I just need a few bits of information: Location: To get accurate pricing and availability your local currency I need to know roughly where you are. Send me a PM if you don't want this public. Budget: How much are you willing to spend? Including essential peripherals like mouse, keyboard and monitor(s) in the budget if you need them. If budget isn't a concern then let me know about... ...Performance: You say you "want to be able to run graphics smoothly and have the ram and space needed for speed and being able to have digital copies of games" but this isn't very specific. If you can give a bit more detail about the resolution and refresh rate of the the monitor(s) that would be helpful. If you can't I'll match your budget as best I can. NAS Storage: You say you are willing to buy and run your games from Network Access Storage, but I don't recommend this for gaming since as it can slow up load times and some clients might not be compatible. If you do decide to go for it how much storage do you need? You may also want to consider the state of your home network as I defiantly don't recommend doing this through WiFi, at least not for you main gaining rig. You will also to consider this in your budget and there are alternatives like Steam Link if it is ultimately impractical. Is it JUST for gaming? Judging by what you have said so far I'd assume yes but if there is anything else you would use it for (work, video editing, streaming ect) let me know. Space: I'll assume again based on your earlier posted that you do have a space for it but is it limited in any way? Like the size of your desk and anything else already on it. Astetics: Do looks matter and if they do describe how. Well I think that covers it. You can replay or let me know through a PM.

    With all of these sports being delayed due to the Covid-19 virus, which do you think they could theoretically still do, even if there are no physical crowd? Honestly, for events like racing, that is definetly something that can be done, since the teams involved normally isn't something that has large groups in each team.

    Pretty much any cemetery. I find more peace and serenity in cemeteries than I do anywhere else. When I was younger, If I wasn't able to sleep, I would go to a nearby cemetery with a blanket and a pillow. Sometimes in a mausoleum, other times just out in the open. I have always waited until late at night to walk in a cemetery. The stillness of the night, and the quiet is so relaxing. There was a forgotten cemetery in the woods near the house I grew up in that I spent a large amount of time at. The most recent headstone had a death date in 1927. The rest were from the mid to late 1800's. A lot of them were veterans from the Civil War. I spent time pulling up weeds, and trying to re-erect stones that had fallen over. Some were broken, so there wasn't too much I could do for them. I even took some black paint and repainted in the names and dates and everything on the old ones. They were limestone headstones, so they were worn down like crazy. That's the weird thing. The one that had the 1927 date on it was marble. All the rest were limestone. That always perplexed me. If I wasn't stuck in a damn wheelchair, I would go back to it. I really miss being able to visit that cemetery. I think I'm the only one that even knows about it anymore.

    I personally would advise against buying/building a gaming PC right now because next gen consoles are right round the corner. You don't want to spend $1000 on a PC and then 6 months later a $500 console arrives on the market that out-performs it. You will get better parts or at least the same parts cheaper if wait a little longer.

    AOE3 and Twilight Princess make the list for me. AOE had a very eye pleasing look, but the game was just horrible. It was tedious, boring, and just a pain in the ass. And WTF was up with the cheats? A monster truck and a bouncing bust of George Washington? Twilight Princess was absolutely stunning graphically. But the gameplay was so boring. Hyrule had little to offer, the dungeons were cheaply made, it was overblown, and being turned into a damn wolf was the straw that broke the camels back. Not to mention being forced to get whatever move the game wanted you to learn and not letting you progress in the game until you do get it. I know some are optional, but that’s just bullshit. Link is a swordsman, not a fucking ninja.

    I’ve never been welcome in any crowd. Always rejected, before I even say my name. So I get attached to the group on FF8. It starts with a loner who isn’t interested in playing around and is all about getting the job done. Then slowly, after working with the other 5 characters they all end up becoming as close as blood. They end up remembering childhood things that they had all forgotten that brings them even closer still. Since I never had an actual family, and literally never once had a friend, I get attached to them. I feel like I’m part of the group when I play the game.

    Power Rangers videogames

    I didn't even know of the existence of Power Rangers until after the N64 had been out for a good while. I had never heard of it. I've never watched an episode or played a game. So there's not much to beat @Crazycrab. But you're still an ass for challenging my limited knowledge on the subject. I'll get you back though.😈

    I think a lot of time the puzzle based games, you have to adjust accordingly. Like the angry birds puzzles have physics specific pattern that you have to learn and work upon.

    I love both but I'm definitely more an Elder Scrolls Guy. I'm still playing so much of Skyrim (albeit with mods) to this very day. I might get into more detail when I have more time (right now I'm posting from my phone) but overall I just escape and get immersed in the word of The Elder Scrolls a bit more. Not to mention each Fallout game I've played has at least one aspect that pissed me of greatly. With Fallout 3 it was the main quest that end's with obvious and massive plotholes nor has any proper closure unless you buy the DLC, I hated the crafting and busy work in Fallout 4 and New Vegas is the game that on both PC and Console has never worked properly for me. On PS3 I had a ton of issues with VATS and on PC it crashes, every 10 minutes, guaranteed, even after installing a bunch of fixes.

    It's a close one, but I prefer The Elder Scolls. Better stories and the magic, dragons, sword slinging fantasy theme just appeals to me more than Fallout's post apocalyptic theme. I agree with your points in favour of Fallout, especially the humour part, but when it comes down to it The Elder Scrolls is just more my thing.

    I’ve been sticking to some of the games I’ve mastered for the most part. Zelda games and different indie games on the NES. But one that I find relaxing isn’t a typical game. It’s a mobile game. Word Cookies. It gives you a bunch of letters and you have to find the words to fill the level. The words are prechosen, and you figure them out. There’s no time limit or anything like that. I recommend it anyway.

    The Sims 5

    I probably won't buy The Sims 5 for a while. I like to wait for them to get the bugs worked out since EA never lets a game get fully finished before releasing it. The release of The Sims 4 was a disaster, and the game itself is still a major cash grab. It has some fun features, though, but I'd still say I like The Sims 3 the best.

    I was getting ready to mention Mario 2. The one that I was gonna mention was Toad. I know most perceived Toad as male, but there was never any actual confirmation in any way. And if you look at the rest of the Mushroom Kingdom, they all look and dress identically. So Toad is one that I would call either genderless or androgynous. It kinda reminds me of what Gimli said in Lord Of The Rings: It’s true you don’t see many Dwarf women. In fact, they’re so alike in voice and appearance, that they’re often mistaken for Dwarf men.

    I'm not sure if it's a portrayal of a "gender-neutral" character as such but It's still quite interesting. In Resident Evil: Code Veronica X, two of the villans you meet are Alfred Ashford and his Twin sister Alexia, the grandchildren of the Umbrella co-founder Edward Ashford. But it turns out later on in the game that Alexia was missing (presumed dead) and that in her absence Alfred because pretty much lost his mind and started imitating his sister, wearing dresses, changing his voice and it actually took me by surprise. Until it was revealed I genuinely thought they were two different people. One character who has been the subject of much debate around the issue is Birdo from Mario 2, who might be the earliest example of a trans character in a game. It all comes form the original English manual, but references to this have been removed in later releases like Super Smash Brothers: Well like it or not creatures that are "genderless" or "androgynous" is a thing that legitimitly exists in nature so take it up with Gaia. I can think of a few example's in fantasy and science fiction as well.

    So you're a full on homophobe then. I don't understand people like you. I don't see how the fact two people who love, respect and trust each other hurts you just because they're the same gender. But whatever, you be the horrid, prejudiced, disgusting you that you want to be, but no opinion you have on the subject will be taken seriously by me. I'll give you one piece of advice though, if you hate gay people and that "SJW crap" that much, stay away from TLOU and especially it's Left Behind DLC and you'll almost certainly want to avoid THOU part 2 as well. All games that feature female leads and/or gay characters and/or female characters that are not just obedient dish washers or made purely for the spank bank. So also avoid the Mass Effect series, the Dragon Age series, the Life is Strange games, Horizon Zero Dawn, The Metal Gear Solid Games Control, Metrioid, Tomb Raider, pick the "right" COD's and Assassin Creed games, Skyrim, Cyberpunk 2077, The Witcher games, Final Fantasy, Tales of Berseria, Detriot: Become Human, Until Dawn, Beyond: Two Souls... actually just Play Duke Nukem Forever quite literally forever because nobody is making games for you any more.
