    StaceyPowers reacted to The Blackangel in Best moment in a video game ever?   
    Specifics, huh? Ok then, here's a few:
    Beating the Plutonium Boss - Blaster Master
    Finding The First Crown - Legacy Of The Wizard
    Discovering Level 8 - The Legend Of Zelda
    Beating Mike Tyson - Mike Tyson's Punch Out
    Beating Shadow Link - Zelda 2
    Saving Princess Whats-Her-Name from Psy-Crow - Earthworm Jim 2
    Beating Even ONE Dungeon - Zelda Goddess Of Wisdom
    Beating Tubular - Super Mario World
    Collecting At Least One Of Every Item From Every Monster - Castlevania SOTN
     
    That's the best list I can come up with at the moment. I woke up at 4 this morning and couldn't get back to sleep, so I'm pretty much running on empty right now.

    StaceyPowers reacted to Crazycrab in What open world game made the biggest advances over its predecessors?   
    I'm with you there.  Coming of a back of console genrastion that mostly produced side scrollers and overheard RPGs and the only 3D titles were moslty FPS's and a handful of flying games, Zelda OoT was a giant leap forward.

    Some games I understand time limits, and have no problem with them. SMB for example. Some games that 99% of which aren’t timed, however, get on my nerves when they throw a timed event in.

    Marble Madness had some weird mechanics. The marble feels like it's full of lead slowing it down, while on ice and moving like there's a drunk Nascar driver on a go cart track. I played it once after I dropped acid, and it was beyond a freaky trip. But I was also kicking purple gnomes in the nuts to make them shut up and watching a unicorn buttfuck a faery, so go figure. And don't even get me started on the singing sword that was castrating the furniture. The car fought it at first but eventually submitted after the hay in the barn talked it into it. I also had to apologize to all the fibers on the carpet for stepping on them when I went out and asked the door for permission to touch it. The bastard made me answer 3 fucking riddles before letting me outside. The clouds thought the whole thing was funny as hell. And a note of caution kids: don't play with an electric fence when you've dropped acid. It won't go well.
    All in all, it was a bit of a wild ride.

    Their upbringing. If the character had a childhood or upbringing like mine, then I can relate to them.

    The Zodiac Killer. The two who survived his attacks gave the same exact description of him, as you can see. Yet he continued his spree, taunting the police and news with his own cypher, was never identified or caught. Now 50 years later only part of one of his cyphers has ever been decoded, and we are no closer to learning his true identity. His cunning, skill, and intelligence kept him from being known forever. He knew how to do it, when to do it, and where to do it, and get away with it. I greatly admire that.

    StaceyPowers reacted to Crazycrab in How do you pace yourself going through main story missions/quests?   
    If it's leveled quests (Horizon Zero Dawn, Witcher 3) I tend to start with the lowest leveled quests and work my way up.  If there is multiple questlines with different factions (Skyrim, Oblivion) I will focus on one faction at a time breaking into the main quest every once in a while.

    Sorry you're not feeling well Stacey, I hope it gets better soon.
    I don't tend to play games when I'm feeling like this. I tend to draw or read or watch TV. If I do play a game it tends to just be whatever I've been playing at the moment anyway. Or The Sims 4. Comfort in the familiar.

    StaceyPowers reacted to Shagger in What games do you play the most when you are feeling down?   
    Gaming isn't something I tend to do when I get like that, or at least I don't deliberately choose to game because I get like that. I'm more likely to don my headphones and listen to some music, maybe even go for a walk as I do. If I want to game, but feel like I can't be dealing with any more stress, I'll replay a game as I find that familiarity more soothing and comforting that playing a game I don't know as well.

    StaceyPowers reacted to The Blackangel in Do you prefer a "blank slate" character?   
    It all depends on the game. Some games are better with a predrawn character, while others are better with a fully customized character.

    StaceyPowers reacted to kingpotato in Do other gamblers in RDR cheat?   
    I honestly dont think so, I mean I have found some NPCS that always have better cards than me, but I think it has to do more with the algorithm of the game, basically some NPCS are programmed to always win a match, so probably thats why some of them always have better cards, but I dont think they are cheating on purpose.

    StaceyPowers got a reaction from kingpotato in Do other gamblers in RDR cheat?   
    It is possible to cheat at poker in RDR, of course, but I am wondering, is the player the only person who does? Or do the other gamblers ever cheat at poker? I am guessing the answer is “no,” but sometimes I wonder. Occasionally an npc seems to be on an unbelievable run of luck.

    StaceyPowers reacted to LadyDay in How much gear are you usually carrying in Skyrim?   
    I'm a Skyrim hoarder too! In the very beginning, until I get a house for storage and a companion to carry shit I tend to have a full inventory and then drop the least important/heaviest whenever I fill up completely. Come to think of it I almost always do that, since I bring the valuable loot I can carry. 
    I usually have the set of armor I'm wearing, two dual hand weapons (I tend to specialize in two hand weapons, so I have the one I use and a backup), a bow and arrows, magic robes, jewelry for enhancing various things, all the healing potions and lock picks I've found and some magica potions. Then there are the things I carry until I can use or store it, like stuff I've picked up for selling when I need money, ore when I've just mined, dragon bones and scales when I've just slain a dragon (to use for dragon armor). Sometimes I also have two one hand weapons, for dual wielding, or one and a shield (not sure why I bring these things, I almost never need them). On top of that I carry the most valuable loot, to sell or store for later use.  
    My houses tend to hold a lot of stuff!

    StaceyPowers reacted to The Blackangel in What do you do with your old consoles?   
    I tend to think it's better to hang on to your old consoles, even if they become closet ornaments. You never know when you'll get that itch to play an old game that is on an old console. If you didn't hang onto it, then you're gonna lose your mind. I rarely touch any of my PS2, Game Cube, or Wii games. Mainly because I really don't like the systems, but they have a couple good games that I enjoy. So I have kept them, but they're not hooked up anywhere. They're in a box and have been there for years.

    StaceyPowers reacted to The Blackangel in What do you do with your old consoles?   
    It depends if I have duplicates or not. Typically I have more than one of every system, just in case one decides to be an asshole. If I have more than that, then I bundle them together and resell them, or trade them. Otherwise I hang on to them. I've said this before, but at the moment I have somewhere in the neighborhood of 7 PS2's and I think 4 PS3's. As far as Nintendo consoles, I have no clue. Too many to count.

    I would say Narcos but they made a game and it looks terrible. So I'd have to go with super natural. That show has been around for years I believe it has the potential to be a great video game before they wrap up the series.

    With the right design concept and execution any story could be told just as good or even better as a video game.  I think The Last of Us is the perfect showcase of why. In most aspects it's linear of two characters going on a journey from A to B.  It's a setup that we know works fine for a movie or TV Drama but I don't think anybody really expected at the time that the additional element of interactivity could make for not only engaging gameplay but make you relate even more to the characters and get more engrossed in the story than perhaps you ordinarily would.
     
    I heard about The Last of Us movie several years ago and the creative director of the game (Neil Druckman) even wrote a screenplay for it but It was put on indefinite hold.  To tell the truth I kinda hope it stays that way because I don't think the move could ever really do it justice... and it seems like I'm not the only one:
     
    https://screenrant.com/last-of-us-movie-updates-not-happening-good/
     
     
    By this point the Last of Us Part 2 was already in production (not to mention Uncharted 4) so Druckman put his focus on that instead.  So it's unlikely we will be seeing a movie adaptation in the near future.
     
    I think another interesting example is Mortal Kombat, after a couple of games came out on home consoles and the Arcade there was a movie adaptation, opinions are divided about it (I liked it personally) but what it did was use the movie format to explain the lore and tell a story far better than the arcade fighter ever could.  Then over the years as gaming technology improved they were able to more storytelling elements like cutscenes, and when Netherrealms released Mortal kombat 9 and it told its story even better than the 1995 movie did. Now I hear that there is another movie on the horizon which might raise the bar again! Who knows!
