how the fuck has this not been a thread yet?

i checked, and of the few that are in the message board abyss, none of them have this broad of a topic for their titles, it's always something super specific like "favorite video game" or "what game are you playing right now?"

 

this is supposed to be a much more broad discussion of video games and the subculture in general, in the same vein of the television, film and animation threads.  so..........comments?

 

 

 

this new Smash Bros. game is making me turgid in my underoos...

but it'll be a long time before i actually get to play it, cause we don't have a Wii U in my household and we're pretty poor as it is haha.

 

 

 

i'm stuck in the past with my tastes anyway, the last few games i've played were these old James Bond games for the PS1 and N64 (not Goldeneye 007) to research for a future (atj) episode.  i've always been amazed by how much variety exists within the umbrella culture of video games...

Momzi never let me have a console, tho they are clearly the better platform, I am a mobile games guy.

RAD SOLDIERS is the shizzznit. Its like modern day chess, but better! I have had it for two years and have played it everyday since. No joke.

I have a PS2, a gameboy color and no smartphone; so needless to say, most gaming is going on on a laptop nowadays.

I mostly like either sports (actually just Fifa, fuck it I'm European), or race games with a twist (CTR all day!) and otherwise tactical stuff like C&C, AoE, Starcraft, Total War and the likes. Latest video game discovery is this turn based Dutch game called Age of Wonders III which just came out this year. The mechanics are incredible. Definitely underrated. Never heard of the series before, but this thing might make me check out the previous installments too.

I just recently played Eye:Divine Cybermancy after first hearing about it a few years ago. I slept for too long. If anyone is into Deus Ex type FPS/RPG hybrids, you have to play it. Disregard any dumbass video game "writers" that talk shit about the story/plot/lore, they probably only played for an hour or so, or they're just too stupid to understand it.  The gameplay is a bit unpolished since the game was made by only 12 people, but its fun as hell.

 

my backlog of games i own and havent even played yet is getting crazy. still havent played metal gear revengeance and i bought it at least 4 months ago. i've ben playing Dynasty Warriors 8:Xtreme Edition for the past few weeks. It's the same fucking game it's been since DW2 yet i still cant get enough.

 

and my buddy who i havent seen in a few months is in town and he picked up the new smash bros today and we're gonna have a smash party tomorrow lol yay :<D

I've had EYE in my backlog for ages. Got it for a buck in a Steam sale. I'm finally playing through the first Dead Space (I know, I'm late) but after I'm through with that I'm probably gonna plunge head-first into EYE. Wish me luck.

 

As far as other video games, I love video games, but I also love a lot of other things so i don't play them as often as I'd like. Fellow PC gaming homies should hit me up on steam: http://steamcommunit...m/id/djprimate/ (steamid: dj_primate)

lol the warriors series will never die, they probably dont even need american and european sales since the series is huge in japan. i just hope they branch out and make more stuff like gundam musou and hyrule warriors (i wish i coul play that but i dont have a wii u), especially for PC since im not really into consoles anymore. i havent played the fist of the north star musous but i heard they werent very good, and ive heard even worse about warriors: legends of troy.

the last game i beat was AC: Revelations earlier this year lol...i still had my special edition pre-order copy of AC3 in its original shrink-wrap packaging up until like July or something, so that should inform most of you about how frequently i get the chance to sit down and play some games.

<<<Hard.core gamer

Pretty much owned every console at one point or another. Currently just playing ps4. As grifty said destiny was terrible (in terms of my expectations anyway) so I traded that for diablo 3 which was pretty sick. Sunk a lot of hours in to that game and will probably be back for more at some point. Now I'm back on the remastered version of GTA 5 and after hearing this years Fifa was meh I picked up the new Pro Evo Soccer. Not sure if any of you guys are in to football (soccer) but that's also a big part of my life (as is sport in general) coming from an English family background.

I think a wii u is on the horizon if smash bros gets some good feedback. Melee on GameCube was my shit for a solid 3-4 years. GameCube is probably my favourite console ever btw. So underrated, so many quality couch multiplayer games.

I'm waiting for a price drop on these next gen consoles and a bit more devotion to the games, same old, they done this with the XBOX 360, took a year and a half before there was decent choice. Holding out for Star wars Battlefront 3, and they got to do another street fighter, would look pretty dam amazing.

Have always been a huge gamer. Started on console, moved to PC, but nowadays I game a bit more casual on tablet/console. Just finished Sunset Overdrive recently. Last few months I was playing the shit out of Forza Horizon 2 as well. Was super stoked for new Halo game but online has been broken since release last week which sucks. The new gen GTA V is also pretty sweet. Looking forward to playing some smash bros and mario kart 8 when I go home for thanksgiving (brother has the wii u)

Why? Only reason I got them was I traded a lot of older games in. Thats my way to get games, or I wait a long time for a used copy.

Metal gear solid ground zeros is all right.  The graphics are nice since its on the ps4, but it seemed like a short demo game considering the $30.00 price tag.  Konami could of added more levels to the game.  Either than that I thought it was a cool little teaser for 'The Phantom Pain' which should be coming out some time in 2015.  Can't wait for that one, it should be good.  Rating 8/10

Diablo 3's graphics are on point, I think I'm on level 20.  Had to put it aside and play another game since it felt a little repetitive with all the button mashing going on through the game.  Rating 7/10

The Evil Within.  Playing this game as of now.  Downloaded it from the playstation store.  Its like a creepier version of 'The last of Us.'  If you dig survival horror games such as the old Resident Evil games and Silent Hill.  Check it out.  Rating 8/10

FYI this game doesn't really start until you've completed the story and unlocked the adventure mode... Adventure mode is the main draw for the tittle. Nothing beats 4 player co-op dungeon crawls and loot hunts. I have 2x level 70 characters, 1 paragon level 400 and something lol. Needless to say I love this game. It's far from repetitive once you reach the latter stages of levelling, playing it on a stricter difficulty also negates most of the mashing... Addictive would be more accurate IMO. I could see how the story mode in single player would feel repetitive, however. But what i'm saying is a reaching level 20 is like 3% of the overall game/experience. How they've got the controls so solid on a controller is pretty mind boggling too. 

 

I'd go a 9.5/10 for me personally. I've dropped over 100 hours and will be back for more later.  

 

easily my favorite title this gen.

I wouldn't exactly consider diablo iii current gen. It's like two years old!!! I'm actually very disappointed with the games library for current gen consoles! I mean everything's a fucking remake or "remastered edition" where are all the new games???? It's a year in and my ps4 is basically an arcade/indie game machine

Neither would I. But I still own it on a next gen console... and it's my favorite game on that console. So yeah.

 

Anyway, remakes are probably a good thing at this point in time, helps developers get used to the new hardware, I prefer remakes of games with a f*load of polish, running at 60fps and not missing a beat as opposed to AC Unity style games where they're all buggy and glitched up the anus. I just want games that work to be honest. Usually the flood gates tend to open about a 18 months in, so still early days. I remember ps3 having only a handful of games worth playing for the first year or 2 of its cycle. As for the indie shit, I couldn't agree more with you. PS+ has just turned in to the free indie game store, I miss the days when Playstation plus actually gave you AAA titles.

To each is own.  This is my first time playing a diablo game, so i guess its for the die hard fans of the title.  I just bought the game out of curiosity, and like Grifty rod said, I myself am a little disappointed with the ps4's library.  It has been a year and I noticed most of the games coming out are 'remastered edition' games.  Hopefully there will be some good games coming out in the future.  Can't wait for uncharted 4, naughty dog is killing it with their games.  That far cry 4 looks interesting, that'll probably be my next game purchase.

Yeah fair enough.

Far cry 4 is basically a remastered edition of far cry 3 though lol. From what I've read its a new map and story but most of the mechanics and gameplay is exactly the same.
