There seems to be a bit of a war that went on between the SJW and GG boys back in the day about the topic and I was pretty interested in it suddenly since I play a fair few vidyas that could be said to be on the harder side.
That being said I think that the wank over difficulty is a bit pretentious at times.

I think there's exceptions, especially complex sims, strategy games, and the like. but for the most part if a person can't handle a game on the standard difficulty level they shouldn't even bother playing because they're not engaging with it in any meaningful way.

I think something also needs to be said about over-hard games, I'm talking battlefield 3 hard, no warning of enemies, quick ttk, that shit, because it exists and shouldn't be praised for being that hard, I'm not saying sekiro is too hard (never played it) but I think we should consider the other side of the problem

It's not about being forced to play, it's about there being nothing to play.

I'm not a "Soulsborne" fan per se, but I played Dark Souls for the first time just over a year ago and it enthralled me. There are just so many exciting moments in that game - the hellkite dragon, getting chased by a Black Knight, walking into the Undead Parish and getting hit by a beam of light from out of nowhere, fighting gaping Gaping Dragon, crossing Blight Town and then finding out you can just waltz on over to Firelink Shrine, chilling in Dukes Archives etc. The environment designs are really inspired. Playing DS1 brought back those feelings that I used to get playing Ocarina of Time all those years ago.

All other 'Souls-like' games seem uninspired in comparison. I unfortunately never got to play BB, but I did play Sekiro for a little bit and that just seems like a shit game to me.

Is it possible to just completely lose interest in video games? I know people who played substantially more than me during their adolescence, yet their appetite for gaming doesn't seem to diminish.
I don't think it's burnout because no amount of time away is affecting my interest.

A lot of video games are just a series of checklists that you fill out, or are empty vacant rooms that you're supposed to interact in.
This could be said about a lot of things though, but it is easy to start seeing multiple games of the same type as being too samey. There is also a lot of pressure to like games that you're "supposed" to like in order to be a based lord or whatever even if they aren't terribly appealing to your appetite.

Anyone still plays this? Was feeling nostalgic for some time now and wanted to try it again.

How do I get it for free in Current Year?

Ah, and I'm referring to the trial, of course. You won't need a torrent or some shady site if you just want to play single player for free. A torrent won't give you a working Realms ID, either, I believe. Better download it from the official site.

If you get stuck, come back to this thread and I will walk you through it. Simply using a third party launcher might work, too.

Have you guys ever played these two masterpieces? Literally no modern historical city building game can compete with these two, they are the most polished, well designed games I've ever seen.
Caesar III which was already great, was succeeded by the much superior Pharaoh, which expanded on what Caesar had already done right, and made it even better, and was so succesful that even had an "DLC" with many more levels.

Also, you guys can use this thread to share your custom maps aswell

You can get them on GOG for pretty cheap. I bought them for my Aunt who was obsessed with them. I could never figure these games out but she build mega cities that could run by themselves.

The online community for Diplomacy is vibrant tho. You can find different people to play against on web Diplomacy every day. It's not nearly as fun as playing with friends in my experience but it's still 8/10

It's almost been 4 years since Square Enix stopped production of the series, leaving it on the biggest cliffhanger imaginable.

Will the series ever get picked up again? And if so, do you think the original plans will have been abandoned?

SE are known for fucking over anything that isn't the latest passion project from the same clique, shit just got even worse for gaijins.
Nier Automata only got made because the Dragon Quest producer threatened to leave, Kawazu spent almost a decade (or a decade if you don't count The Last Remmant) in gacha hell until he was able to make a new game, and Yoshida's team keeps getting money and manpower siphoned away even after saving the Final Fantasy brand.

>It's a real shame the gaming community overlooked it over some stupid memes like it being 2 hours long (when it's the longest Deus Ex game).
It didn’t feel short just really inconclusive. Too many loose ends. When I heard it was originally meant to be a two part series, everything made so much sense.
