I would gladly put 1000+ hours in this game but it makes my PC hard crash at times and I'm too lazy to get a new PSU. Excited for the potential Titanfall 3 tho.

Fun game! Movement is great, gunplay is fine and the titans themselves are satisfying to control once you get the hang of them. Population is in a bit of a dire state right now though, and once your MMR reaches a certain threshold you're bound to run into some stomps which you'll be on either side of as a real player.
Fortunately, the game provides a lot of fun and helpful stuff to do even for shit or new players. I really like how they made that work and it's a welcome contrast to games like CoD where the rich just get richer and going 1-20 as a below average player isn't unthinkable.

The reason is simple, the same month of it's launch EA also released battlefield 1 and pushed it extremely to take advantage of the recent pr disaster of: Call of Duty Infinite warfare; the game with 3.9 million dislikes on it's trailer.

It's a shame really, and since Apex is doing so well, we're not going to see a Titanfall 3 for like 9 years.

The only way to save the game is to just make the multiplayer f2p and release some content (which would probably be just recycled content from the first game).

To be fair on them, the games they made were cod 1, 2, 4, and mw2. Other than the last one I mentioned, there fairly fine games, most of the annoyance of cod was because of activision.

This is not a discussion thread this is a declaration. What I am about to say is NOT up for debate and you CANNOT possibly dispute anything written here.

Remember how early cars could only be operated by literal mechanics because they were so unintuitive and shit? Games pre-1993 were exactly like that. Games had no plot and shite gameplay which does not hold up at all these days, nevermind the unbearably primitive graphics. Gaming was the nichest of hobbies and considering the fact that PCs used to cost like 15'000 dollary doos in todays money, it was never going to become mainstream.

Then in 1993 Knack came out saw the release of Doom and Ultima VII: The Black Gate (whose expansion Ultima VII Part 2: Serpent Isle would surpass the base game), the mother and father of modern gaming.
Doom as every brainless chimp knows invented the modern FPS and by extension TPS genres, the two most lucrative and popular gaming genres and showed how fucking rad vidya gaems could be. It was mainstream, caused just the right amount of moral panic and sold millions. Doom would then be surpassed by Doom 2 and finally by Blood, the best non-3d shooter period.

Ultima VII was the first genuinely good and playable Ultima game that still holds up. While the plot is hot trash, it proved the viability of the open world. Serpent Isle would then go on to prove that games could tell an engaging story. Together, they laid the foundation for every modern RPG including the Baldur's Gate series which has yet to be surpassed in excellence.

Not only did the 90s see the most influential games of all time, they were also the best. Why? Because during this time, the industry had struck the perfect balance between technological capability and commercialisation. Games before did not have the tech to be good and games after were ruined by capitalism. Ideas could flourish and were unburdened by investor interests, at least not to the degree of today. All of this culminated in 2000 the undisputed best year in gaming. BG 2 is the best crpg of all time (Planescape Torment has the best story but is lacking as a gaming experience). Red Alert 2 is the best RTS of all time. Diablo 2 is the best action rpg of all time. Deus Ex is the best PC game period according to some.

These days, no risks are taken. Games like Myst, Myth 1 or 2 or even Planescape could never be made today. Games are so fucking expensive to make and in order to make back their money, dPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>Games are so fucking expensive to make and in order to make back their money, devs are forced to pander to the most common denominator

True. Games industry as a wider form has degenerated, especially with the death of the mid-tier games. However 1) the indie scene is doing real well and is over time moving onto the mid-tier territory on its own, 2) an atarii crash is innevitable, as well as a reneisance that it will bring, 3) it only recently (over the past decade) went to shit like this, and arguablly it was the 00's to 10's+ that was the best years for the wider gaming industry (KotoR's, Bioshock, Dragon Age, Warcraft 3 and WoW, Return to Wolfenstein, Morrowind, Arcanum, Witcher and others), while even the early 10's to 20's had good stuff from larger companies, like aformentioned Souls games, Witcher 2 and 3, and, of course, the CRPG reneisance (though many of those are more indie).

>Gamers are Nazis, who cry and whine about idpol anytime a woman is on screen

And do people treat then seriously? They are a joke, the lowest common denominator that you talk about.

>Nerds back then were progressive and you never heard anything close to the gamergate bullshit of today.

That's just culture shit making a backswing, only tangentially related to gaming. Also, again, only really a problem since 2012ish.

>Graphics move more copies than concepts and plots are dumbed down so that every shitlib can understand them

Again, mostly true for AAA, but not so much for indie. And I don't really recall old games, outside of those well remembered monolithic cult classics, to be much different story wise. Oh, and the graphics shit was just as true back then, for instance see Quake 2, or that Deus Ex was lowkey mocked for its dogshit graphics.

I don't want to be "that guy"
but it's always stuck out to me as strange that the ending of the witcher game series ends with Geralt as a landlord. Both as a character and story wise it's a strange place for him to end up. He's very accepting of suddenly having a servant and literal peasants working this big vineyard for him.
Should seem like Geralt would resist being in that kind of position. Witcher series also examines a lot of contemporary ideology through the prism of this particular world, even economic exploitation like debts or unfair wages, but in this one instance the feudal arrangement just goes unremarked upon. I dunno what was up with that.

Not a bad thing, i just noticed it.

>Becoming a prize-husband for a court sorceress
>Retiring with his love in recluse

I played Starsector for a while, but there isn't a lot of meat to the late-game colony sim stuff. I made a completely planned and AI assisted colony by farming alpha cores and I slowly gained the ability to terraform planets via a mod, resulting in me making as many planets in the solar system possible to be inhabited by humanity with little to no need for environmental gear, basically making a densely populated reach of space completely overpowering all the other factions by miles.

Tried it. Amazing start as a communist. Sure, your relationship with all factions is destroyed, but just over a few months I stacked up a ton of credits without even leaving Askonia. Turns out making supply runs for space North Korea is extremely profitable. And hey, since everyone hates me, I don't even get the choice to use the "legal" 30% tariff market. I'm already level 15 from profitable trades.

So talking about the lore of the game, did Ludd cause the collapse? I found a listening post with a log of an old Domain prisoner list, one of whom was a cult leader with a strong "anti-tech, anti-science and anti-Domain" sentiment. Wouldn't be surprised if he was somehow involved with blowing up the gates. Or maybe he just used the collapse as an opportunity to start his cult on a civilizational level and I just read too deep into it.

The only good thing about stellaris is that it conforms to the leftist worldview (ironically, porky Collectivism equals Authoritarianism versus Individualism equals Freedom equals Entrepreneurship was overtime changed to Freedom equals Egalitarianism and Communism, Private business equals oligarchy)

The game, however, was broken by later patches. It's overcomplicated and requires tedious routine, but also doesn't have any variance at all. It's perfectly balanced, but due to being overcomplicated and drawnout doesn't work out for multiplayer.

He croaks way too soon to his assassin sex slave gf, so he only ends up a threat for like a quarter of the Galaxy
The War in Heaven is cool, but…
The rest of the game past midgame bores me so much that I literally never seen it.
Galactic market sounds cool, but…
Its fucking sterile and carries zero weight for the actual gameplay, as its just a seperate tab where you can buy or sell limitless amounts of goods. Traderoutes? Piracy? Smuggling? Nah, fuck that shit, no need.
The L sector or whatever its called is a cool idea, but…
Its just three prescripted outcomes of what is inside.
Curators are a cool idea, but…
They are just a guaranteed thing that will be a part of all your games and there is no real poin to them outside of "dump credits to gain x modifier".

I'm adventure level 28 going on 29 now.
Progression slows a lot; I'd been binging the game pretty hard since I'm NEET right now, but I had to slow because I can't go faster without paying at this point.
I will not pay a dime; I will not buy the pass, so I can't attest to it being worthwhile; it's ultimately your choice, but I wouldn't advise it because it doesn't seem wholly necessary unless you really wanna power through the game.
Anyhow, I take issue with the whole resin thing, but ultimately the fact that the amount of stuff I can do on any given day is limited has promoted a healthier lifestyle for me.
I can't just keep binging the game straight through to the cruel and bitter end because it prevents me from doing so,
so I just hop on and do my commissions and the domains if they got what I need and leave it at that; it's fun enough that way.
