Games of the Generation: The Last of Us

@Shoozle TLOU really felt like a survival game to me. Every encounter was very dangerous and I always had to adapt to make it through. That's what the modern horror games are getting wrong. There's more to making a scary monster than the visual design.

Dark Souls 2: The difficult second game

Chiler

@Snowsprite Don't get smart with me. That method can not be used as an alternative to a traditional pause button. What if my phone rings while I'm fighting ? The start button doesn't stop the game and it takes at least two button presses to quit(which is enough time for a regular dark souls enemy to kill you).

As to the game, we'll see. Given Cage's massive ego, I doubt that he'll fix the problems of his older games. I liked Heavy Rain and Indigo Prophecy, bit they weren't as smart as they thought they were.

@null If they are going for authenticity as they claim, then what's the problem? Games often sugar coat their subject matter, GTA V might be a step in the right direction(MIGHT.) I would hate to break it to you, but real life gangs are not like The Saints.
Its stupid that they brag about it, though.

What's the difference between current-gen and next-gen Call of Duty: Ghosts?

Chiler

5 years ago

Here's what they should brag about- less loading screens and better FPS. That's the biggest minus of the current gen, I don't give a shit about lighting and bricks.
Also I think that making COD about good graphics is a mistake. The recent games have sky high sales despite the dated visuals. The graphic whore crowd is not a huge as some people think.

I like games with good narrative but the open world often spoils the effect.A sandbox is a place where you have fun, that's why a good sandbox game shouldn't try to have a serious story. The protagonist wouldn't waste his time with shit like darts and TV if he was on a quest for revenge.

@bobdebob "Is considered one of the greatest" "Just a GOW clone" That's just what I expected you to say. See, I don't care about the public opinion on films, most people think that Game Of Thrones is masterfully written .
And about the gow clone part, it makes sense that you would judge the game by the most obvious element, the gameplay and Spec Ops has much more going on in it than the simple shooting. It's just that if something is not shoved directly in your face you won't see it.

@bobdebob I think that Spec Ops the line tells a different story than Apocalypse Now.Still, for me it war way more affecting and powerful. I can see why some wouldn't like it, the game requires an investment that mentally restricted people lack.

The Last of Us spoilercast

@Simonoly I think that it's original in a way. That's why I was very disappointed at the beginning of the game when Ellie said that she's immune, I thought that it would be a simple "save the world" story, but just the zombie apocalypse it was just a background to tell the story of Joel and Ellie.
I also loved the "Okay!" line at the end, it felt like Ellie trusts Joel, even if she doesn't believe his story.

Systems vs. stories

Chiler

5 years ago

There isn't a universal "thing" that summarizes games. They can be about anything. Example - The Walking Dead. The game barely has any gameplay, but people still loved it for the storytelling. Gears Of War has a shit story but some people loved it for the gameplay. So whats the point in saying that Dear Eshter is "no game" when it could still be enjoyed?

Quantic Dream: In pursuit of, and setting, a Hollywood precedent

Chiler

5 years ago

I think that it's stupid to nail a character to a face or an actor. . When you make a game, the characters could be anyone or anything so why would you limit it to Ellen Page or whoever.

Also the thing with those hollywood star photos hints something troubling. I doubt that Cage is friends with every single actor he uses as inspiration so I'm guessing that he's looking at their previous roles. The whole mindset of his writing seems to be "wouldn't it be cool if Ellen Page's character in movie A met with Dafoe's character in movie B but the story is like that in movie C". Heavy rain was like that, the whole games was build around separate scenes from other movies and as a result the game felt really disjointed(there were many fight, chase or interrogation scenes that never led to any point.)

Look at Naughty Dog, they do pretty much the same thing as Quantic Dream in terms of animation and tech, just that it their case they implement the animation inside the game part of the fucking game.

The old thief games managed to be convincing without any motion capture, this sounds like they want to be in the big boys club and use the most modern cutting edge tools when in reality there is no need for them. Example- Bastion. The game had great voice over without having motion capture and still it was more emotional than most modern movie-games. I'm not saying that motion capture is stupid, just that its not universal.
Also there are 3 characters that I can immediately recognize by their voice and they are Garrett, Sam Fisher and Solid Snake. Every single one of them had to be removed for some retarded reason.
