    Head_Hunter reacted to PGen98 in Do you guys remember the Sega Saturn?   
    The Saturn came out in 1996, I believe, so it's very much a console of the past.  It was well ahead of its' time, but it was so poorly marketed and support from third party developers was next to non-existent, so it failed outside of Japan pretty quickly.  In Japan it lived on for a good 10 years, had some amazing games developed for it, as well!

    Head_Hunter reacted to Shagger in Do You Think AAA Games Are Asking Too Much of Gamers?   
    This is exactly why, despite what the so called "PC Master Race" will say, we need consoles. Consoles effectively "tie down" game development so it doesn't run too far forward out of control. Without them, dev's would push games too far and too fast towards running on top-end hardware that a lot of people can't afford. Thus the install base is lowered. Combine that lower install base with the fact these games would cost even more to make, games would have to be even more expensive to buy and/or filled with more monetisation bullshit than they already are. This would push even more people out of gaming, lowering the install base even more creating even more expense for all parties, thus lowering the install base again. Basically, it would be a massive negative feedback loop that would cause the ecosystem of the gaming world to pretty much collapse.
    Look at Cyberpunk 2077. That game was developed to get the best out of PC's then they made console ports, and we remember how well that worked. That's why developers usually design their multiplatform games primarily as console games the further develop a PC version. Like it or not, that's the way it needs to be done.

    I'll simply say that the AAA game series aren't performing well lately due to the fact they've placed more money as their main target and forget about improving the quality of their gaming.

    To be frank what you've said it's simply straightforward way when one doesn't have much of the funds. I always put aside savings for the game on my fantasy and not rushing up using money I've set aside for other things just to satisfying my gaming urge, No, I make plans for everything I want.

    Completing a particular game missions means you stay and learn and study how to master the gameplay and make it your favourite.

    EA and Ubisoft are simply doing what's more pleasing to them more especially and not considering the wish-list of those playing the works of their hands (video games). Let's watch how the future will be around this two gaming companies, if they'll improve or not.

    Prejudice plots downfall of any society of organisation. If a nation truly wants to take it higher then they should eradicate feelings of prejudice and divided mindset work as one in unity and harmony, that's exactly what I've learned in Deus Ex video game.

    Head_Hunter reacted to Withywarlock in Games with widest gaps between difficulty levels?   
    I concur that Dragon Age: Origins is rather liberal with its difficulty. It's part of the reason why I don't like non-d20 based RPGs such as Neverwinter Nights or Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, which use visible and easily calculable maths. At least when you die to a bear at level one in Baldur's Gate, it's because you can see it did did three attacks between 1-8 damage in the combat log, which is enough to take out anyone who isn't a Barbarian or a Fighter in a single, lucky blow.
    Dark Souls isn't so much difficult as it is punishing when you mess up. This doesn't mean it's easy, it still takes practice and attunement to the movement and tells of your enemies. It only becomes 'easy' in a sense when you've mastered the backstab, and/or have a player/NPC doing all the work in boss fights... provided they survive.
    The hardest thing about it was adjusting to the idea that you will die, and it's totally expected. I was way too used to the idea that dying meant you were bad at a game, and while there is some merit to that idea, nobody's ever played Dark Souls with dying in obvious or silly ways on their first try.

    Hatred is the number one for me. The character you play is simply known as The Antagonist. That's his name as far as the game will tell you. He straight up says in the beginning intro that his name isn't important
    Another one I would think would be RDR2. Being a gang of outlaws, they would typically be the villains, or antiheroes at best. True they're good people for the most part in camp, but they're still killers, robbers, and thieves.

    Wikipedia explanation:
    Mod or modification is a term generally applied to PC games, especially first-person shooters, but also to real-time strategy games. Mods are made by the general public, and are entire new games upon themselves. They can include new items, weapons, characters, enemies, models, modes, textures, levels, and story lines. They also usually take place in unique locations. They can be single-player or multiplayer.

    Metal Gear has been around since the late 80s and Elder Scrolls the Late 90s. It's not in any chronological order. I just wrote out the game franchises I could remember off the top of my head and I forgot to put in Street Fighter and Castlevania which are also from the 90s.

    Head_Hunter reacted to Shagger in Why are "Steam Exclusives" not a controversy?   
    I don't see Epic making thier planform appeal to publishers/developers as being such a terrible thing.
    GOG was there, but it had a very different claim of the market wasn't really meant to compete with Steam. Other services like EA's Origin and Ubisoft's UPlay were fairly indigenous for thier respective publishers and weren't the same thing as Steam. Let's face it, Steam held a monopoly and that's never good for the customer. In fact, I remember people screaming out for somebody to break that monopoly, and nobody offered a realistic alternative to Steam until EGS came along. Epic's strategy was to make thier platform appealing to publishers/developers with lower commission to gain traction.  I see nothing wrong with that at least for small, independent developers accepting a better commission deal for exclusivity, especially since Steam has become a difficult place for such dev's to get thier games noticed in more recent years. This will always be a problem for Steam so long as they insist on having this "open door" policy with the piss poor quality control that goes with it. The problem for me starts when big publishers accept these kinds of deals, they have no excuse to deny a large amount of people the option of buying thier games where they want.
    I think both you and @Withywarlock are right, Steam got better with time and perhaps so could Epic, and maybe Epic should have leant the lessons through Valve's mistakes, but I get why Epic didn't copy Steam directly, such a thing would be doomed to fail. So, they try something a little different. Offer free games weekly to customers, better commission deals to developers/publishers and exclusivity deals. Some of thier policies I agree with, some I don't. I for one just refuse to deny the importance of competition in the game market on PC just because I don't agree with everything Epic does, especially when I have at least an many issues with how Valve handle themselves.

    That's not what tracking is for. The purpose is to gather data about your spending habits, what apps you use and even personal information like your name and email to then sell that data to somebody else. That somebody could (and would) send you spam, scam you or otherwise manipulate you into buying something. For example, let's say Google picks up on the fact you've spent some time browsing for a laptop online. They would then sell your personal information to a company selling laptops so they can hard sell you on laptops.
