Christ, do any of you idiots actually like video games? Or do you prefer biatching about how "it was better in my days" through rose tinted glasses like the old crusty video game hipsters that you are? Because I grew up with the NES, SNES, and gameboy, and I can say that games were far shiattier per-capita than they were now. Yeah, there are a lot of shiat over the years like always online DRM and uninspired triple As, but if you arent having fun with video games today, the problem is with you.

SomeoneDumb: I never got into the whole accomplishments and trophies and stuff to begin with, not after playing too many single person RPGs to count. Now that I've moved to a place without broadband, I couldn't join in the fun even if I wanted to.

Which I don't.

/Learned enough about that playing Ultima Online
//Now more than happy with what I get through GoG


GoG is the shiz!   I love working classic games I can run from my new computer.

tgambitg: palelizard: What if I don't want people to know I came in second in Leisure Suit Larry?

I thought coming second in Leisure Suit Larry was a good thing?



I had an ISWYDT all ready to go, but you have beaten me to it. :)


Perhaps the whole socializing thing that the industry is pushing wouldn't be so vulgar if it really was about increasing interactivity between players and not a naked attempt to use players as free advertising drones.

Eat a dick, future video game programmers that require the connection.

If I want to take my system of choice and go to a remote place and play the latest Assassin's Creed or Metal Gear and can't because it requires an online checkin/whathaveyou, then I'm going to shiat inside the system, seal it air tight, and mail it back to you.

Eat a dick.

Plant Rights Activist: There isn't really any room for AAA quality single player games anymore.  Or at least single player games expecting a AAA size price tag.  Only the most hyped game is going to get people to shell out $60 for something that was just released when they can wait a couple months for the same game and get it at half price or they're just going to be a shmuck and pirate it until it's down to a more reasonable price.  Attach an online component so they can't and you get whiners complaining about that.  You can't win.


Let's check in on Skyrim...
*thousands of active modders and players*

Now let's check in on Elder Scrolls online...
*crickets*

Yep.

/this is the exception to your rule

PRetty much this. I dont want an audience when I paly a game. I play to be away from people and to just veg out after a long day.


This. Not everything needs to be social. No, Netflix, I don't want to share with Facebook; no Amazon, I don't want to tweet that I just bought Ass Lube.

Aar1012: Fano: Good thing I've stocked up a lifetime's worth of games from the Atari 2600 up to nes, genesis,, gamecube, ps1, p2, wii, and all my mame emulations. So I'm waiting to go all Burgess Meredith when the apocalypse happens, time enough at last.

It's why I'm glad that I started collecting retro consoles


One of my proudest moments was when my dusted off the old SNES last month, and plugged in Final Fantasy 3, and saw the kids get excited over the intro music and say "OOOOOOOOoooo.  Can I play it?"

Then they got frustrated they didn't have a quest marker telling them where to go (-_-) .

And that's when the AAA developers will mostly fail, and Indie developers will come into their own.

After all, Minecraft is the number one best selling video game of all time already.

Something along these lines. I like video games because I can play them when I want, how I want. Apparently that's no longer a thing.
