    I always play for the story, even games I've played multiple times through, the story is a big part of the experience, so I never skip 🙂

    Exactly! Without the game's story, there's absolutely nothing for me to play for. It's the bigger picture for me in any kind of game. It's what lures me into playing any game to begin with.

    I like the thrill of the hunt, personally.  What can I find in the wild?  I've found amazing deals that way, like a sealed copy of Comix Zone for $7!  I have bought online, and I have no issues with purchasing online, but I still enjoy the thrill of the hunt, too 🙂

    I have gone on the hunt a few times, it can be thrilling just like you pointed out but where I had issues was failing to find something worth buying in the end. It happened a few times to me and that had me discouraged from doing it again. 

  3. Everything is now all about the money for most of these AAA games and it's been very obvious with the Call of Duty franchise recently over the years as poor effort have been made into making the game be as good as it used to be when it comes to gameplay. They took a page out of what Epic Games have been doing with their skins microtransactions in Fortnite. It's such a shame they are killing the biggest shooting game franchise we know. 

  4. Unfortunately, Naughty Dog had two paths to choose from the development of the game which was to either become a solely live service games studio or continue to focus on single-player narrative games. They eventually had to go with focusing on single-player narrative games. The live service might have worked but they can't do both of them at once probably.

    I know two people who are unable to play most shooters because the gun effects trigger their seizures/visual sensitivities. Is anyone else here affected by this? I feel like games should just have a option to switch off these effects.

    Well, if such shooting games with gun effects that trigger their seizures/visual sensitivities doesn't have any switch off mode for such effects, those people doesn't have any other choice left but to stop playing the game. It's as simple as that, there's no two ways about it. 

  6. Personally, I wouldn't really mind playing video games as a form of therapy. As long as what I was diagnosed with is said to be possible for it to be treated and managed with my playing of video games, I'm definitely going to interested in exploring that option. I don't see any wrong in giving it a string of trials. 

  7. I'm not sure if there's any Razzies award show for video games. If there was, I haven't had the privilege of knowing about it. 

    I would give worst game of 2023 to The Lord of the Rings : Gollum 

    I'll give worst voice acting to Atomic Heart.

    Worst gameplay will be Payday 3.

    I would definitely like to have a Razzies show for video games.

    I'd say mine would be when Walker in Spec Ops comes to realize the colonel he's been chasing down for years has been dead for a long while and realizing all the lives he sacrificed to get to this point was in vain. I was surprised that he didn't instantly commit suicide after that reveal. What's your choice?

    This game's ending in Spec Ops : The Line would been exactly what I have in mind to mention from just reading the thread title without reading the body of the topic to see we have the same thing in mind. The twist of plot in the game was so unbelievable.

    Ever since games like Fortnite started doing battle passes in their games, more and more games have followed in suit and now have a battle pass on their games. Rainbow Six Siege added a battle pass, Warzone added a battle pass and I believe you get battle passes now on the multiplayer sections on Call of Duty games as well, Apex Legends has a battle pass, Overwatch now has a battle pass and there are many other games that have also chosen to bring battle passes to their games. 

    Do you feel that with how gaming and games are now, battle passes are just going to become the norm now for games? 

    It's very obvious that this is some sort of a trend for all those kind of battle royale games. It's crystal clear that they are trying to copy the success of what have worked for games they have similar gameplay and genre in. It's already a norm the way I see it. New games will keep adapting it.

    With the news that Microsoft was deleting gaming clips and screenshots that weren't saved after a certain period of time, it made me wonder if I had saved all of my xbox clips before I broke my xbox. Oh well, I don't think there was anything too important. I think all the clips I wanted to keep, were already saved so should still be available. Anyway, because of this news, do you now make sure to backup all of your gaming clips instead of waiting for it to possibly be deleted later? I know Xbox will sometimes autodelete a clip you take in game unless you save it to your system. 

    Do you backup your gaming clips to YouTube or other platforms? I have used YouTube in the past to keep all of my gaming clips, at least the ones I want to keep.


    Google Drive have being my best platform to backup all of my gaming clips to. Although, it's not everything that I backup all the time but whenever I want to, it's going straight to Google Drive.

    I don’t even think of games when I’m sick. Where is the strength to grab a controller and sit up straight? I just continue lying down till I get better. 

    True! If your sickness is something that's very severe, it's going to be very difficult for you to get up from bed and not to talk more of sitting down to play video games. It's definitely impossible for you to lay down in bed and play.

    Online all the way. No need to waste time hunting around in stores. Just a few clicks and boom, I've got new game in my collection. Plus, the selection online is way bigger. Gotta catch 'em all!

    Exactly! Why stress myself going through physical stores when I can get almost everything I wanted from online store? Ebay is very good place I've been using to get them without having any issues. 

  13. I'm probably among the few who hates hand Canons or grenade launchers. I just can't get into using them. Side arms is another weapon I hate that much because of its abysmal range.

    Since when was Ghost of Tsushima a soulslike?

    I had to add it to the list because of its similarities with soul's game with the combat system. If You die, you repeat the mission with all enemies back alive. Maybe it is not that hard as Sekiro or Dark Souls but it definitely gives me soulslike vibe.
