Why are these games just babysitters for the absolute scum of the earth?
They're such a hyper-commodified skinner box, being addicted to one is like being caught in a perpetual downwards mental health spiral. What the fuck is wrong with these games and what the fuck is wrong with the people who play them?

>The ongoing narrative for Defense of the Ancients is that a series of amateur content creators with limited programming experience and few financial resources created a Warcraft III map that was not only better than Warcraft III, but surpassed the collective efforts of a billion-dollar videogame industry and its world-class game creators. A story that should set off red flags in the mind of any reasonable person has become a rallying cry for transformative change in the world of videogames.

There are some YouTube channels linked form the main site at least:
https://www.sovietrepublic.net/

In my most recent game I went immediately for setting up a petroleum industry. Exporting fuel and bitumen by train is very profitable, at least in the 60's. I invested all of the initial 1M₽ and $1M in setting it up, had 1.5M₽ in profit one year later. Set up a chemical and a plastic plant, then electronic components. I think I'll build an electronics assembly factory next, and start exporting electronics. I just need to figure out how to load a train car with the things. Rail warehouse doesn't seem to work for electronic components at least.

Well there is no reason why browser-games ought to be low effort, but if you want to install software locally, then you need to improve the software development tools to the extend that normies can modify software. As in have in-game-code-editing with program-logic-visualisation, as well as coding-aids that have a high level of idiot proofing.

I'm currently replaying Fallout 4 in survival difficulty with a fuckton of mods and I got to say it's pretty fun, I also learnt to enjoy more what stories are told by the environment even if the actual writing is still awful.

But recently I discovered this
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minutemen_(anti-Communist_organization)
So what the fuck is up here, we are meant be the leader of the minutemen (out of nowhere) in a game clearly made up of 50' and 60' references, there's no way the creators did not know about this (or is there? I mean the plot is retarded). Does Preston even know he's black??

Anyway I was building homes and infrastructures for the working men and women of the commonwealth but now I don't know what to think. Am I the bad guy? There's not even an anarchist faction similar to the followers of the apocalypse I could go with in this game. Should I just become a raider and wait for Caesar to rebuild the productive forces?

I guess this is the fallout general now

I am playing a heavily modded version of Fallout:DUST after a fun playthrough of the successor prequel mod on Fallout 4 (confusing, I know) in Fallout:FROST. Doing an NCR deserter, and he has gone from a (fairly) badass looking trooper to having his own custom (and slightly defaced) ranger armor.

Tbh given everything we see of the minutemen there’s a near 100% chance that the intent was for the MM to be LARPers of the original Minutemen of the Revolutionary War.
The first place we meet them is literally a broken down memorial to the war…
>>

 No.6030

>>6029
well there would not really be a revolutionary war to fight, unless they would want to rewrite the institute from what they did in Fallout 3 or rewrite the BoS to be psuedo-Redcoats (which would both be retarded, and early concept art shows a lot of the BoS and Minutememes fighting together, so it would have probably been the institute if anything). I think the Minutemen as a title was more just a way to reinforce how the remains of the US still has enough ideological sway to influence how the post-war people feel about themselves and identify by, in the same way the New California Republic is. In fact really the only factions to ever really form a unique identity largely divergent from the ideas of America are the Followers of the Apocalypse and the BoS (and also Caesar's Legion but they copied Rome so it doesn't count).

Not the comrade you're replying to but the based realpolitik chaos ending is helping the NCR at first. Seeing how the NCR deals with dissidents. The counterattack on the prison, the treatment of westside, war crimes against the Khans etc and then honoring the truce with the Legion once you hit the strip. Go see what Caesar has to say, fix their howitzer and leave once you upgrade the robots. He'll ask you to kill House. Humor him and leave to grab Boone. Come back to the fort, go in guns blazing a kill Caesar. Go back to the Strip and kill House anyways to lowkey install Yes Man. Help the NCR after to an extent. Peacefully resolve tensions in Freeside. We don't need more good proles dead over diplomatic bullshit. Lie to Moore and get the Omertas the best chlorine caps can buy. Get them to resume business with Mick to get illegal weapons flowing into the Strip. When the time comes they'll fuck up the closet cannibals, the bossless Chairmen and the NCR embassy in one swoop. At this point the NCR glowies will tell you to dispose of the BoS but that's up to you. You can have them for an alliance but it dissolves. Enclave? They're remnants so up to you who they support. At this point foil the Legion's assassination attempt on Kimball and then kill him yourself. Congratulations you are a anarchist, communist and a traitor to the western states of the wasteland. The Kings are likely to defend inner Vegas and the wannabe mobster Omertas are pushovers with the people's robotic muscle. Useful idiots, drug addicts and statists are no match for a handloaded .45-70. The only friends you can trust in the Mojave is a big iron and the cigarette on your lip.

Seriously, I made an unarmed khajiit adept in theft and other based shit.
I did a bunch of theifs guild shit and did a bunch of fighters guild shit. I can finally kill enemies and I was finally feeling happy. I went to this cave near caldera that had a bunch of Dedra worshipers in it, I guess cause there was some random book of dedra in there. I made it to level 8 and I walk outside and I am immediantly bombsarded by a fucking clif rider and two fucking alits and now I am stuck in this fucking gay ass cave and have no idea what to do now. I tried running and I finally was making it back into a fucking city AND THEN THE FUCKING GAME CRASHED ==WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK MORROWIND? HOW THE FUCK DID ANYONE EVER PLACE THIS GOD DAMN SHIT!?

On that note of the game crashing, what is the most unstable game you've ever played, /games/?
It's probably KotoR 2 for me:
Every door loading screen in the first city (the terraforming station) has a 40% chance to crash you.
Every cinematic (which get scaled down to like 200x400p) has a 50% chance to crash you.
Every time you use space travel its like 90% chance to crash you.

Also KotoR 1 also deserves a shout out, as the string of different cinematics after Bastila bossfight each have a huge fucking chance to crash, meaning you have to do the boss 10 times.

The game puts a lot of effort into trying to show the Socio-Economic factors that play into the characters Micro level personal problems (May's Parents chimping out because they were relying on her becoming a PMC white collar to save their house from getting foreclosed / Beatrice having to wageslave basically for free at their own parents business because their mom got wrecked by US healthcare and so on / The Boomers sacrificing children to Molech because they miss the 1950s / Angus and Gregg's whole Arc revolving around their desire to leave hickville USA NOT because of Homophobia or whatever but because they realise there will literally be no livelyhood there once the last of the small business gets obliterated)

Now "Is it EssJayDubya shit" well…In some parts
But not nearly to the degree that people on /v/ / /vg/ make it out to be.
When Angus and Gregg were introduced as being gay i was also at first like "OMG Game fucking ruined just what i heard about he we go…" But No there is basically no pandering to the fact that the characters are gay outside of jokes and so on

>TL;DR

Very decent play if you like walking simulator / VN style games
Decent messaging but everything does contain an EssJayDubya "twinge" in some way

Recently people like Sterling and Schreier actually made a lot of shit that actually came close to class concious. Especially about gaming escapism and the kind of "anti-political" hypocrite mentality, showing that most rightoid actually DOES want politics in their games, but their kind of politics like having CoD imperialism simulator and America wank. Like this video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5q2ibrU5Xpg
>The "it's optional" reasoning is only applicaple to consummer products like games but not the entire system of capitalism
>every criticism exist in its own bubble is practically applicabe to most defenders of neoliberalism
Why can't these people just connect the dots and see all of this is a systematic problem with capitalism itself? Or do they actually know it but choose to remain silent because themselves are afraid of alienating the normies?
