It has recently come to our attention that the users of /games/ are seeking a reliable method of communication for online play and general conversation about games. I am unsure if anyone is aware, but, there currently exists and unoffical matrix room specifically for this located at: https://matrix.to/#/!YWrRUKLasccyNpfbue:matrix.org?via=matrix.org

If anyone is interested in gaming discussion, or, online discourse please feel free to join. That is all. Thank you~

Best MC of a FE game is the only one without royal blood.

I don't even know why they bothered putting a groomer war criminal as a faux MC in the sequel, all parts involving the Down's brigade were such a slog. It gets weirder when this group never once is told that Daein had started a war literally a few years earlier nor are they called out on this or for helping start a new one over nationalist sentiments.

I have seen videos of gameplay. I playd other games though (ones that have translation, except 5D) and i stand by my words, compared to Sengoku they just suck. I think even you agree with me because you didn't even try to say that they don't suck, you just nitpicked at my description of the last game.

Earthbound was a step back from Mother in removing the outside-battle sprint system and living in ancient times with its awful item system. Even Dragon Quest 3 figured out in 1988 how to alleviate frustrating item juggling problems with its party Bag solution.

>Chrono Trigger
I wouldn't say it's ahead of its time in any respect, it's just polished beyond belief with a team of people who couldn't be touched. The battle system, the plot, the time traveling aspects, etc had been done in RPGs prior. In fact, there isn't much in CT that I would say future JRPGs took from.
>Earthbound
naaaaaaaaaahh
I hate on Earthbound more than I should, not because I actually dislike the game (I think it's a really fun time), but compared to how good some of the RPGs on that console were and how clunky the game was at times, I just can't say it's even in the top five of its genre. Also Mother 3 exists and while it's not fair to compare the two, one is a 8/10 game and one makes Chrono Trigger look like IdeaFactory shlock.
>>8558
FE7 isn't the best of the series, but it's such an easy game to sink 20+ hours into without realizing where the time gone. Speaking of which, pic related is what I'm going with. Fire Emblem isn't nearly as good as it is without what this game establishes. It's also one of the few games in the series that's meaningfully critical of the premise of the series (superpowered monarchs tear the countryside a new asshole, except this game points out that's not actually good)

Into the Breach is a nice little SRPG made by the developers of FTL.
If you like games similar to Advance Wars, you'd like this game too

I wouldn't classify Subnautica as an indie game, but for what it's worth, it won a "Fan Favorite Indie Game" award…

It's an sandbox survival game, kind of like Rust on an alien ocean planet with spooky fish.

For me, Blasphemous ascends if you "get" all of the Spanish-catholic and Andalusian cultural allegories which are everywhere from the architecture and clothes to the story (especially the dialogue in Spanish, the dub is amazing) and enemies. To give an example, the PC is based on a Nazarene, a person that does the procession of penitence during Holy Week. The team that made it is based in Sevilla and it really shows.

I've been playing katana zero, and i gotta say it is pretty good. The gameplay on itself would have been good, but the story is something else. I love the sequence where you have to groundhog day yourself through an interrogation, to avoid a guy from killing you

Ronaldo's ending in DeSu2
It's not even that exciting, everyone's just nice. The ending consists of everyone trying to make the best out of bad situation and giving everything they can to help each other out. But because DeSu2's writing is dogshit they pull the "can mankind prosper without competition".
It's like the law ending of the mainline games but instead of worshiping god everyone just gets the American forcibly ripped out of them.
SMT2's Chaos Ending and SMT1's Neutral ending are also based.

The main problem is that MMOs are inherently social experiences to a greater extent than a typical multiplayer game. If you want to play a multiplayer action RPG, play a multiplayer action RPG. It doesn't fit with MMOs and usually only works by stripping out the "MMO" part.

Why Suslov and not Sablin or Bukharina?
>>

>>8682
Sablin is a dumbass with a matyr complex in real life who was only looking out for himself, the TNO version will end up the same. There’s a reason why his own comrades ended up beating the shit out of him when he started his little rebellion. Bukharina is just a more liberal version of her father’s failure in economics. That’s not to say Suslov isn’t bad but the people you mentioned isn’t much better.
Only Kaganovich and Tukhachevsky are mildly better even with the libshit “evilz for the lol” added in.

What do you make of it? Do you always go with the presets or do you spend your Time in game to get the best Combinations possible.
I mean for games like RDR2, GTA, Ghost of Tsushima, etc.

If it's well executed it can be fun. It's like a toy by itself to fuck around with, and the ones that give you good options let you do some funny shit like imitating other characters or real people.

The main issue I have with them is that 99% of the time they are purely cosmetic and none of the options affect gameplay at all. Body weight sliders could at least give you a tradeoff between strength and speed or something (or change to reflect your stats instead of being directly customizable). Someone who knows how to handle learning AI and simulation physics could probably make a neat fighting game where you make custom characters and it uses physics to simulate the fighting moves, and it's basically a competition to see who can design the best fighter.

It's pretty useless and designed to be extra time consuming and triggering peoples desire for perfectionism when the only options for customization are either behind a paywall or so ridicilously ugly that players are just spending time in the wardrobe. I really appreciate a limited wardrobe and a couple of decent presets that represent the fashion sense people had in a historical setting and not some deviant art crap that gets posted on Reddit like >>8009 has pointed out. Or as >>8642 said, switching between characters with their own destinct look and personality and not some wannabe random npc
