It’s not that I can’t find a game I like or that I don’t have fun with them. I’m having a blast at the moment with terraria and sekiro but right now it feels like every once in a while my urge to play just dies and I just don’t wanna play at all. Coincidentally I also don’t wanna watch anything or read anything that’s fictional either. The fuck causes this sudden climax

Your brain is like a self righting system and if you get too much stimulation from x thing, then x thing will produce less stimulation. If you take goof care of your health then your baseline mood will improve and it will become easier to regain pleasure for tasks. A healthy life is it's own high ss it were.

i don't know, i haven't gamed for months (excluding the binding of isaac to pass time), but recently the urge to play came back and i've sunk tens of hours into warriors orochi 3 and smt v. these things just go in cycles sometimes, especially if you've got no one to play vidya with. i think a large part of my mental problems comes from the fact that i've got no friends

Ranked apex, csgo, valorant, and r6 should make queuing into lobbies exclusive to invites between players

Losing is one thing but losing because of one or two players on your team that are really bad purely due to randomness dictated by an algorithm is complete shit to put up with and invitational matchups more than ensures no opportunities for rng to decide who wins and loses

Elo based sbmm is better because if you based who matches with who off kd than everyone would just end up having a kd around 1 while one guy ends up dominating and destroying every lobby they’re in

 No.24013

>>23985
The whole point of basing it off K/D is exactly so you don't get that one guy obliterating the lobby. If everyone has a kd of 1 that means it's an equal playing field and no one can go on a 60 kill streak because they're fighting bots uygha do you even understand how sbmm works?
The problem with sbmm has never been that it is too strict but that it has a ton of exceptions (streamers are known to be placed in bot lobbies deliberately so they can frag out and advertise the game) and that the elo is never determined by K/D (example apex legends where if you place top 3 with 1 kill you will still get harder matches since it's based off placement even though it's because all the good players hot dropped and killed each other in the first 5 mins).

Hahaha that almost never happens and if you’ve played one of the games mentioned or just looked at the state of sbmm in cod you’ll know how fucked up easy it is for some random dickhead to just reverse boost and go on to fuck up an entire lobby for shits and giggles

 No.24027

>>24014
Those people have to throw 20+ games in a row constantly dying before they get into a "bot" lobby and as soon as they do well in that one match they're kicked back up. The problem here is that SBMM does not set any hard skill floors that players cannot fall beneath. As soon as you achieve a certain level of skill, let's say 1.5 lifetime K/D, you should never ever be put in a lobby with players below idk 1.10 K/D let's say no matter how many games you throw. This is merely yet another example of how SBMM is too lenient and not too harsh because it's judging off recent performance instead of lifetime performance.

There are no bad characters in fighting games. All players can win with any character in any game they like and every problem that’s associated with losing in games like tekken and smash to certain characters is all associated with simply bad movement

Except for DBFZ fuck namco for how hilariously broken that game is. At times it’s worse than marvel vs capcom

 No.23934

*laughs in Meta Knight from SMBB*
the reality is every fighting game has a meta. occasionally a character no one plays ends up being good but there's a reason metas are created, because it's an analysis of effort vs reward (i.e. you can try your ass off with a tier c character and do well but if you had been playing a tier s character instead you would have accomplished the same thing even faster and with a higher winrate).

 No.23936

I wouldn’t say that metas matter to a significant extent
Just look at that tekken tournament in Japan shortly after Leroy came out only to have 8 different Leroy “mains” get demolished by Mikio whom was maiming julia
Or how often changes to the meta of games like smash, mortal Kombat, Brawlhalla, and again tekken 7 receive with balance patches whom only like once every few months to years yield genuinely OP characters which makes not choosing a character you just like the moveset of pointless

FUCKING guy that picked ness would literally spam pk fire and thunder and never use any other move. Did any win? Obviously not but the fact that there were that many ness mains that were terminally immune to the concept of a light attack verifies the need for daddy sakurai to come in and just fucking tear those two moves a new asshole if it means giving the mental midgets that play this guy a reason to learn other aspects of the game and not simultaneously losing every match against a elite smash player and piss off and receive death threats from low gsp players looking to just have a fun time when they’re off duty in the real world

the kids (ness, lucas, etc.) have always been trash in every smash bros. small hitbox means nothing because they have no knockback power. spammable abilities mean nothing when you can dodge them so so easily. if anything they should get hardcore buffs to the pk abilities so they can finally kill players that aren't first time smash players.

>bugs
This has nothing to do with CDPR, new information thanks to upper echelons games has published that QA testing was outsourced to a shoddy company CDPR worked with when releasing the Witcher 3, in it due to company quotas at that outsourced companies led to constant letters of non game breaking bugs given to developers rather than important notices like the performance issues and constant problems with physics breaking down.
>performance
This is the fault of CDPR for not downscaling the game pre releaee, you see most video games made by major titles are created for consoles and scaled up for PCs as that’s the most popular form of hardware used for gaming. Given CDPRs history it wasn’t surprising knowing cyberpunk was made for PCs and then downscaled for consoles, and this reality shows when you consider the promotional material Nvdia showcased for this game. Unsurprisingly things like LODs, enclosed spaces for cheap entity culling, reducing asset counts to save frames, storage of mesh data into arrays so assets sharing textures/geometry don’t load them independently screwing over PCs, pre fetching for pre generation or emergent events, cpu cache instancing for things like mobs, multi threading, simplified geometry on all 3d meshes especially static buildings etc all weren’t considered before release

>why the worlds empty

This is an easy answer, the design and writing team wasn’t confident on what they wanted in the game and hence shitloads of time was wasted creating and then deleting assets due to random changes in design and scheduling meaning just like anthem and andromeda the game was a management clusterfuck to develop

So I finally got to reading cyberpunk 2020 (the rpg core rulebook). I always wrote the system off because I never liked that it took the name of the genre as its own, but I held my nose and dived right in.

And holy shit it is super 90s but in a good way. Its dated for sure and it is saturated in edgy ham (which I kind of find wholesome tbh). Its cheesy, but the kind of 90s cheese that was always raunchy and entertaining.

Now this brings me to my second realization while reading the rules and drinking in the setting.

CDPR truly squandered the potential for a deep and amazing rpg game to made from this system. The system is based almost entirely on skills and a character's statistics (attributes if compared to d&d) that could have been transferred easily into video game form. It reminds me a lot of Elder Scrolls games (Morrowind/Oblivion) in that regard without the choice of classes at character creation.

It could have been like Morrowind but cyberpunk and actually good combat. The power curve of CP2020 seems very similar to that of Morrowind. Players start off weak (or if they know what they are doing in character creation overpowered), combat is always deadly, and eventually players can break the game and become walking (cybernetic) gods. This might seem like a nightmare of balance on the tabletop, but in a singleplayer rpg it would have been awesome as fuck. If CDPR would have just stuck to the cheese (ie not turning Silverhand into a depressed mary stu and stuck to the corny madlad who got Gatling gunned in half by a punk Adam Smasher) of the setting and the expansive unbalanced fun of the core rules CP2077 would have been one of the best albeit still janky games of the decade.

Just fucking no you rose tinted eyes maniac. The first time I touched that game I got a headache and refuse to play it ever again regardless of the cool shit it had like levitation spells and throwable weapons
You know why? Because all the obnoxious progression systems tied to jack shit every component made balancing the game for bethesdas developers fucking impossible and it shows ingame. Morrowind is fucking broken and buggy to the core and there isn’t a single component of the game that isn’t constantly reminding you of this shit and how much more fun it would be if the RNG tied to fucking everything along with the hysterically easy to break meta was patched out.

>Just fucking no you rose tinted eyes maniac.
Bruh, I first played Morrowind on the og xbox and died to a kwama forager and got confused as to why I died looking at this barking worm thing and then rage quit because waiting five minutes for the game to load on the xbox was annoying to my preteen brain. There are no rose tinted glasses here.

What I did do a year back was finally sit down and play the game with the intent on actually learning its systems and what I found was something awesome. I literally made another character to see if ranged/steatlh build was shit like ppl always said. It was annoying at first, but by level 13 my character was a goddamn ninja who could jump twenty feet in the air, owned a demon dagger that gave them an unbreakable daedric dagger, could merc ppl yards away with explosive arrows, was so fast that they could stunlock most enemies before they could ready a weapon, and who had already assassinated some of the most powerful beings in world just because they could.

Now imagine an un-fucked version of Cyberpunk 2077 where you could do the futuristic version of what I described above. A cyber ninja solo with a fuck ton of augmentations and cyberware that
allows them to kill some of the most influential/powerful figures in NC (with a robust faction system to boot). Sure it you could kind of do that in CP2077 (to mindless gangers) but enemies are just bullet sponges and there is no depth to anything and loot is scaled so there is no sense of progression. You have a predefined character with 3 predefined roles with no weight on anything tangible besides lore dumps. You can't make yourself look like a cybered up monstrosity or roleplay as a master hacker. There's no Net which is funny because Netrunning makes up a large portion of the tabletop rules and could very much be its own game.

Another thing that is ironic about how CDPR adapted the setting is that the whole fucking back story of the vidya is literally a rip of the example adventure from the rule book, which does not feel like a homage but rather a lazy rehashing because the depth of what the designers and writers did was just a glance through the main rulebook and some source books and was like "oh you know that example adventure thats just to help players see how a game of CP2020 runs? lets just have the playPost too long.
