    Family sedan reacted to The Blackangel in How long should a company support a console?   
    If you don't game online though, then that doesn't really make any sense. The console can still be used to game. Just not online. And there are a lot of games that are super popular that don't offer any online version. Yet they're still successful. There are some that have been on multiple entries into a console franchise. Skyrim is on the PS3 and the PS4 both. So ending "official support" doesn't make the console a paperweight. They will still run any games you have, just not an online version.

    I'd say a good 2 decades and then when they officially cut support, you can still download the game somewhere and it can function on a local device. I also think that backwards compatibility should be supported if you don't plan on continuing support for a particular device within the first 10 years.

    In this day and age I think they should make sure that after official support ends the console can still be used without it.
    So if they intend to shut down servers, release a patch that makes the consoles fully functional without it.

    If there's one advantage consoles should have, it's that they're their own ecosystem. Unlike with PC, where emulation and support is becoming increasingly difficult for those behind such things, consoles are beholden only to their own exclusive operating system and hardware. They don't have to worry so much about compatibility compared to, say, Windows, and all the changes to the parts that go into a case.
    They do however have to contend with the used games market and the graphical arms race publishers want to push, meaning whether they want to support a console or not is at odds with the money they'll make from it as time goes on. What doesn't help, and as far as I'm concerned is inexcusable, is the online requirements for patching firmware such as internet connections during first-time setups or after formatting.
    I'd be fine with them cutting support for a console the moment the next one comes out if it weren't for that; otherwise I'm just waiting in the rafters to say "another blow against digital ownership", and move on to the next thing I'll get mad about.

    I would say they should support it until at least 2 years into their next console's life. If that's confusing, I mean Playstation should continue to support PS4 until a minimum of 2 years into PS5's life. Preferably longer. I'm saying this because with every console release there are bugs that the company didn't catch. And on release the only ones that seem to be able to even get the damn things are fucking scalpers. So most gamers will still be playing the previous generation because they simply can't afford a 300% markup from a cocksucker who's greedy as fuck. I'm not dropping $1500 on a $500 console.

    You still steal more cars in gta than in any other game. So I think the name fits very well.
    When I think about weird names, I think about series like
    Star Wars Dark Forces, Star Wars Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight,
    which would make the third game called Star Wars Dark Forces III: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast LOL

    I was actually wondering why is it still called GTA (Grand Theft Auto) even if it's not really based on stealing cars, the game series got this name because that's what it was supposed to be based on, but due to some bug, the game took another path to what we see it on these days, but the name was never changed (except that it was called Race n' Chace before GTA).
    Do you think that any of the current existing games/series have a name that don't really fit with it?

    I have to agree with @The Blackangel. Just like how I don't necessarily like Final Fantasy IX, that doesn't mean it's a bad game necessarily. Creators for the most part, are usually honest about what a game entails. If the game is close to what they described pre-release and I still didn't like it, then that's on me. In the case of games like Anthem where EA consistently lied about most things, I'd blame them.

    It depends on how far I actually went into it. If I went far into the game, then it's on me. It had my attention and interest in the beginning. If it is in a genre that I'm a huge fan of, like fantasy, and the game just sucked in my opinion then it's still on me. Witcher 3 is like that. I didn't like it, but that doesn't mean the developers are to blame for my personal taste.

    Family sedan reacted to The Blackangel in Are art and entertainment mutually contradictory?   
    They really don't have any difference at all. Art is entertainment. Entertainment is art. The Louvre houses some of the greatest art in the world, and it entertains thousands if not millions every year. Entertainment is everything from movies, to plays, to games, to books. It's all an art form from the creator. My art, as you all know, is the written word. They are one and the same.

    No idea, in fact if I had a year left to live then I would not even be playing video games, spending all money and travel as much as I can and live. But games, be doing the same games and sims that I'm doing now.

    I'd probably play the games I'm playing right now like Skyrim, Fallout 4, DMC and others. I'd probably take that year and complete a personal bucket list instead.

    I doubt it would change what games I play. If I knew I had limited time I'd probably play less games, and try to do things off my bucket list.

    20 years from now, I'll have a wide selection of video games to choose from, the entire MCU lineup released to ames that we got to see and hear about. Yet I do not really know this matter. Rather winning lottery ticket or cheat and go back in time and knowning on how to get the achievements 😛

    Games can be used as a means of developing coordination skills and can also provide a way to take your mind off the real world. Or in my case, it helps me to think - Seriously, some of the best solutions I had to issues in my life was thinking about it while gaming.

    For some they give a person's life meaning. People like myself for example. I can't play any sports. I can't go for a walk. I can't wrestle with my dog. I am stuck in a god damn chair. The most value I have is to eat, sleep, and shit. Games give me something I actually can do, and sometimes something I can succeed at. They occupy my mind, eyes, ears, and hands. If I don't have something that occupies all 4 of those I get extremely antsy, which tends to lead to panic attacks. All because there's nothing much else that I can do. If it wasn't for games, I most likely would have shot myself by now since my diagnosis.
    Games are a life saver.

    I mean racing wheels from that era weren't anywhere as good as the ones we had today so a controller made far more sense back then.

    HP used to have a computer game that came with their PCs where you could cut auto racing practice laps.  I forget if there was a race mode though, but just practice laps only really have the objective of trying to learn your car's handling and learn the track.

    So far, all I've heard from their community is that they hate it - I've yet to get a proper argument as to why they don't like it. It's more or less the same with Final Fantasy 8, it's no worse in any department than FF7 but receives way more hate.

    Twisted Metal 3 was the unpopular and I'm still confused why it even gets that kind of rating. I mean it was as solid as the other two with a few new additions but it was extremely divisive.

    Seems that most high school allows it, rather then having them to go outside, just that we all get right on the PC as fast as we can before it's all taken. We all do not eat. 
    Yeah, it's blocked, Only time that I was able to have more control when I and another classmate had permissions to set up an own network, we had three to four old PCs laying the class and we built them up to able to play simple games, we had so much gear to play around with, old network servers too. In that room there was a large server room that controls all six classes on the floor and teachers rooms, we tab into the teacher's network and linked too our build server and BANG! we had no blocks, able to enter websites that are not blocked. Able to do far more things.

    Also, I forgot to mention, that I remember bringing some PS2 games to play in school. It was during a in school celebration, where we didn't have any school. We just hung out, played games, watched movies, etc. I stuck around in one room gaming on a PS2. I destroyed everyone in WWE Smackdown Here Comes The Pain! 😄 Was a fun time!
