    Reality vs Adventure reacted to Shortie in No surprise, Trump and family guilty of fraud! All assets in New York getting dismantled and banned from business in NY!!!   
    It was only a matter of time that this happened. He was running on luck up until now and it's all starting to crumble around him. He will make out that it is a witch hunt and his supporters will believe that as they believe everything that he says but the truth is that he lied to so many and brainwashed so many and now it is coming to bite him on the backside. 
    He'll continue to claim he has done no wrong but the truth will continue to out itself.

    Are you strictly wanting sci-fi, or are you open to other genre's? I'm looking at my library and will list the ones that stick out to me most before posting my entire PS3/PS4 list. I'll post some trailers after that.
    That said, the main two from PS3 that stick out for me are Thief and Dante's Inferno. God Of War is a great series, but we all know what those games are like, so I don't think a trailer is necessary in any way. Which Infamous games have you played?
    From PS4, despite them being horror games, I would highly recommend you check out the Dark Pictures Anthology. Little Hope and Man Of Medan are my two favorites in the franchise. Actually, I recommend everyone check them out. But then if you want only sci-fi, you could start out looking at Star Wars just as a jumping off point, and consider games that leads you to.

    Yes! and since it has characters from Final Fantasy - I think that was their goal for it be semi-similar to having that group of friends that come together to fight darkness. It's a good theme and was great for me at a younger age.

    Reality vs Adventure reacted to Bizdustry in What ifs scenarios completely changing a game   
    If Mortal Kombat were transformed into an open-world game including different realms such as Earthrealm, Netherrealm, Outworld, and more, players would be able to enjoy a larger and more captivating gaming experience. They would have the liberty to freely wander through these realms, engage with their distinct environments, and come across a wide variety of characters and obstacles on their journey. This open-world concept has the potential to enhance the game's narrative depth, introduce new possibilities for storytelling, and provide players with a more fulfilling and exciting gameplay adventure.

    Reality vs Adventure reacted to Bizdustry in Do you think gaming sharpens memory skills?   
    Playing video games can actually help improve your memory skills. When you play games, you need to remember lots of important things like the rules, objectives, strategies, and even where certain things are located in the game. This constant exercise of your memory while gaming can actually make your memory better over time. Some games, like puzzles or strategy games, are designed to specifically challenge your memory and thinking abilities, which can ultimately help you remember things more easily. However, it's important to note that the impact on your memory may vary depending on the type of games you play and how long you play them for.

    Muscle memory is a very real thing in gaming I will admit. There have been many times when I have come away from a game for a while and as soon as I go back on it, it's like I never stopped playing it and my game play and what buttons and such I need to hit and use tend to come back to me naturally. Muscle memory really is a great thing which I do believe can also help with memory skills which are very important through life and as we get older.

    I feel that what @Reality vs Adventure has described is muscle memory and getting to know game controls. As for weather gaming can help with memory issues, I can see it, but I don't know for sure. And even if if does, I doubt it's a better alternative to reading and metal exercise.

    I am a firm believer that it does help sharpen your memory skills. I believe any game you play can help with your memory skills as every game takes some kind of remembering whether it be a strategy that you need to remember or memorize or even something you did to get past a level in a game, it all adds up and helps with your memory skills.

    I like you said that about friends and fighting darkness. Reminds me of playing Final Fantasy 15, or actually any FF game where you have a group of friends that come together to fight darkness. I really like the friendship in FF15, and playing in an open world, drive around, and camp sites to wait for the morning while they cook and hang out. It brings a good feeling.

    I think that's a great idea. They do something very similar to that over on JoyFreak whare the editor's articles get posted as topics. The problem over there is that one of those editors (who shall remain nameless) basically abuses the system and uses thier "articles" to peddle affiliate links, some of which are really shady.
     
    However, I am in support of this. I hope @DC can work that in in some automatic way, but in the meantime it might take either myself or @The Blackangel to update a sticky thread for it.

    What if we had open discussion on VGR news articles? Or somehow just have VGR news headlines in the Video Game Discussions section under Gaming News. A headline and link under Gaming News would be cool. That way we can always be reminded we have someone dedicating time to write news articles on VGR.

    Kingdom Hearts always pushes you to remember to fight the darkness. The light always wins! It's one of my favorite messages. Also with that, it reminds you with friends anything is possible. I also have to agree with those who mentioned Animal Crossing. The NPC's are very positive even when they are being upset with you lol. You can consistently see growth within your island and that's encouraging!

    Not going to lie and say that I didn't see this coming as I did and I for one am very happy to see it's finally got to this stage. 
    Unfortunately, Trump really did feel as though he was above the law even before he became President and even after and really thought he could get away with so much. 
    I do hope this goes as far as it needs to because he deserves it as do those who supported him.

    He got processed through the jail and got released on bond. So he still has to wait for his trial. One of the co-conspirators is still in jail because his bond was denied for attacking agents that came to his home. Trump's bond should have been denied too for all his threats. Even then, his mug shot brings us closer to that reality that nobody is above the law. And this picture is now what represents who Trump is and who the republican party is since they all still support him and almost every republican presidential candidate pledged their allegiance to support Trump no matter what even if the guy is convicted and sitting in prison. Republicans do not care about criminality or our justice system. I mean, the very first republican presidential debate a couple days ago, they raised their hand to support Trump no matter what when they were asked if they would support him as the nominee even if convicted. That says a lot. The entire republican party is an organized crime racket.

    Who would have thought that breaking the law would land you in jail even if you were the former president. xD I'm glad he's finally being booked in jail for breaking the law, along with his co-conspirators! Not one person in the country is above the law, and even Mike Pence thinks Trump deserves to be placed behind bars. I just hope this will disallow him from running for president next year, but I doubt it.

    Today Trump turned himself in to be processed through the jail along with other co-conspirators who turned themselves in earlier in the week. Here's his mug shot! This is his fucking legacy!!!


    Here are more mug shots from his co-conspirators: Fulton County Jail Georgia: 
    Sidney Powell, Ray Smith and Jenna Ellis
    Kenneth Chesebro, Cathleen Latham and David Shafer

    John Eastman and Scott Hall

    Mark Meadows

    Rudy Giuliani

    Harrison Floyd

    And more will turn themselves in on Friday.
    Kenneth Chesebro requested to fast track his trial date to October 2023 instead of the original court date in March. Prosecutor Fani Willis granted his request for all 18 co-conspirators plus Trump and today Trump has denied an October trial date for himself and is going with the March 2024 date. Just the other day Trump said he had documents to prove his innocence and wipe away all charges which he was gonna show outside the court and he punked out. You would think if Trump was innocent and had documents then he would go for a speedy trial in October and be done with it right? Well, he punked out. He wants to delay as long as possible. And this---denying an early trial date, should completely prove his hypocrisy and all republican's hypocrisy that this is election interference when Trump does NOT want an early trial date this October in 2023. So stick a stinking sock in your blabbering shit holes hypocritical traitor republicans.

    Reality vs Adventure got a reaction from Shagger in Role of Storytelling in Games   
    Any entertainment medium can be used to shape our experiences beyond the screen, but gaming is even more engaging and leaves an acute personal connection. If games are independent of government control as it is now, then story telling allows us to have so much creative freedom and there really are no limits. If gaming was under government control like Russia's new gaming initiative, then it no doubt will be used as propaganda to influence minds for dangerous purposes. Or under religious control, your stories will get even more limited. Great story telling arises from creative freedom and that is what allows our imaginations run wild, intriguing us, exhilarating us, a story and fantasy for everyone from all walks of life instead of seclusion. That is the fundamentals of great story telling. Simply having that creative freedom. 
    I recently got done playing Mortal Kombat 10 and 11 which is on the extreme end of story telling in games because it is narrative driven. I really enjoyed it; made me a fan. It helped me appreciate all the many characters, good and villain, and the setting, action, visuals, abilities of each character, lore. If MK wasn't narrative driven and was an open world with little story, would it have had as great an impact? Or better? I don't know!!!!! 😁 Just asking.
    I love it when games jump to a cut scene. That is what some open worlds tend to lack. One of the best open worlds I've played that is story driven and plenty of cut scenes is Cyberpunk 2077. I've never played anything quite like it in other open worlds. It's extremely immersive, great story including great side quests. It's blown my mind away. It reaches so much inside our very souls, our emotions...the way they put it all together is a standard that open worlds should try to match. Witcher 3 was another they had some excellent cut scenes and side quests. And would you look at that, both made by CD Projekt RED. I didn't even do that on purpose. GTA 5 was excellent too. That game is unique in itself being able to play as 3 different characters, and really appreciating each one of them, even though they were criminals. But the character development made you like them regardless. How can that be? How can you like a criminal? Well, we all did! 😎 
    Then you have The Last of Us series. It was a story that if not done right, would have looked like an ordinary apocalypse. But it was told in a brilliant way, capturing your emotions and drawing out tears if you got any. And that is why the game has had tremendous success. I feel like we may be drifting away from this kind of story telling do to developers putting more effort into trying to make every game have an online multiplayer, when instead they could concentrate on better stories. But that is another topic. That is basically taking your creative freedom for granted. 
    How does story telling shape our experiences beyond the screen? I'm not sure. We get emotional and fantasy satisfaction of a great story. We get to engage in critical thought and ethical situations. I remember playing The Walking Dead by Telltale Games and that really had an impact on me. Such a dramatic story, and it made me really look at the depth of character in people and ask myself: what if I was stuck in an apocalypse with this person or that person? What would they be like? Even Detroit Become Human made me question: what if...What if AI became that advanced? Would I discriminate? Would I have a relationship with one? Would I be able to recognize their plea for equality? I mean, critical thinking like that is the same as: do animals have feelings when they go to the slaughterhouse to be tortured for food? Do all animals have a higher consciousness with feelings? Yes, of course they fucking do. But some people don't believe that or simply don't care. So the game Detroit Become Human I believe can enhance people's cognitive ability to develop sympathy. I believe this is important to be reminded of our abilities to sympathize, or else you get actual humans being broken apart and thrown into a heap of metal (or bodies).

    In that case, they really do need to take some cues from Saints Row. You customised and collected vehicles and then called somebody to bring that vehicle to you whenever and wherever you wanted. Even Farcry 5 had a similar mechanic, so there really in no excuse Rockstar.

    Yeah no doubt it's an accident waiting to happen. Even the the Oculus has a boundary you draw yourself. You use the control to draw a circle of your boundary area and if you cross it, it shows on your screen a bright colored wall. As long as that part of the room is clear it should be ok, but I don't know. If zombies were going in through multiple doors, I can see it getting out of control. Just don't play drunk...LOL

    This is actually quite weird but also at the same time, it is something you would want to experience as well. 
    I have seen many videos where people panic on VR over things such as height or even falling but something like zombies is completely different. 
    I definitely see some accidents happening when people are fighting zombies using a VR headset in their own living room!
