I feel like gaming is getting ......

post #1 of 114
Thread Starter 
For me, i feel like the games nowadays are getting crappier.


when cod ghosts was announced, i was excited. its crappy for PC, no one plays, the players that do play make the game not enjoyable.

BF4, again, doesnt appeal to me. mass warlike fighting game with people on 1 side staying in their zone.

titan fall. seems like a mass rampage game.

WD, exciting concept. but im still doubtful the game will be those games where it'll be fun in the long run

diable 3, gets boring to quick. nothing to do after you beat the game.

MMO's, to many need to be paid / subscribed. i dont think it'll be worth it if it doesnt last me a good long time.

LoL, fun, but got boring for me. no big incentive that keeps me playing, just stressful

sc2, same as LoL

i would buy some console, but i dont think its worth having to pay to play online every month, and buying another console

what do you guys think?

what do you guys play?

i do agree some games you mentioned, like titanfall,cod,battlefield(4)

titanfall wont last long i think, i played the beta and i felt boring quickly really..
i'm not sure what dice has done or rather .E.A to Battlefield 4.. didnt bought it. i played alot of battlefield 2, BFBC2 and Battlefield 3, but not battlefield 4. it just doesnt get my attention.

the games that really APPEAL to me are DotA 2 , DayZ ( sometimes ) ArmA 2 with A.C.E mod, and ArmA 3. those are the games i play.
for now i play alot of dota 2 getting in competetive with a team later.
The only MMO i would touch again is Titan, from blizzard which is scrapped until who knows? 2016 i think. so yea even TESO isnt anything special to be honest with you.

other than that no games are intresting me that much or not appealing yet.

i really want to try out games such as these, it appeals to me (to some degree)

i just really dont want to end up spending money and end up getting bored of it. even with MMO's.

this is also why im scared of watchdogs. it seems great. awesome concept and gameplay. but what if, once again, after i fork over $50-60 and it turns out to be bad, or get boring after 1 week.

I dont know if its just me, but it seems like i get bored of games really quick.

the only game that lasted me mroe than couple years was runescape (back when i was like 11)

but i dont know if it is because i was young, or if the game was actually that good.

even now, thinking back, i feel that rs was pretty well designed, theres a lot of things you can do.

Games aren't now just getting crappier. It has been a slow and steady decline since 2007. It really stood out with Call of Duty 4, being the first game in the series focused primarily on casual multiplayer and only having a lower quality 4 hour campaign. Games have been copying this model since then. I don't see the industry turn around any time soon, casual clones like most of the games you listed still sell the best for the most part. As games keep getting dumbed down and designed for children and people with no intellect, I keep getting less interested just like you.

I prefer to spend my time playing Dragon Age: Origins (2009), the Mass Effect series (2007, 2010, 2012), Skyrim (2011), Oblivion (2006), Morrowind (2002), Fallout: New Vegas (2010), Fallout 3 (2008), Deus Ex: Human Revolution (2011), S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl (2007), S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat (2010), KOTOR games (2003-2004), Neverwinter Nights series (2002, 2006), Metro series (2010, 2013), Dishonored (2012), Amnesia: The Dark Descent (2010), Penumbra series (2007-2008), Thief Gold (1998), Thief II: The Metal Age (2000), Underhell. When it comes to multiplayer I prefer ArmA 3 (2013), PAYDAY 2 (2013), Natural Selection 2 (2012), with a bit of No More Room in Hell (2013), Rising Storm (2013), Killing Floor (2009), and Serious Sam HD (2009-2010) mixed in. So a good mix of games from the past and present.

Download the ArmA 2: Operation Arrowhead demo on Steam. That's a series that was really focused on innovation, unlike most of the other crap coming out these days (such as many of the titles in your first post). Just beware there's not much of a future for that series either.

ARMA3, star citizen, and maybe wildstar are some of the more promising titles i'm keeping my eyes on.

ARMA will be entirely dependent on who you run with. it's always been the community that makes that game successful

star citizen has lots of potential of filling it's role as the "next big thing" w/o publishers getting in the way.

wildstar is a wildcard for me. if they do things right and push more end game raid level content instead of following the lemming of casual gaming trend, then they may have a chance at becoming successful.

TESO doesn't really look all that exciting from the vids i've seen so not really holding out too much hope for that game. seems like a typical "capture the casual gaming market" scheme like all the other failed games lately. i feel it going to F2P before too long.

With these games i play i can play endlessthere's no doubt about that.
ArmA 2 A.C.E is pretty intense and still alot of people play it. very tactical i feel. but needs teamwork ofcourse. you should check it out. ill post a video under this so you can see what i"m talking about.
the mod is VERY fun. that said, devlopers are working on A.C.E 3 for ArmA 3. so im not sure if you're ever heard or played ArmA Series? probably not? ArmA 2 is more of a SIM Shooter. and it goes really in-depth with the A.C.E mod. ArmA 3 however, at my end they took the realism out of it. but that doenst mean it is a bad game. still some good servers.

Also, these games i mentioned i NEVER spend a penny on it. except dota 2 for skins or whatever , but other than that, not really i can have hours of fun of these games.. and most of the times if you're really into DotA 2, like me, no other games can probably be "better" you just cannot get bored of dota 2. as you mentioned LoL i played it 2 years back..and i stepped down to dota 2 and never looked back.

this is an example of ArmA 2 With A.C.E mod.

edit : like psyclum said , the reason why the game shines is the modders. who apparently do a better job at everything. thumb.gif if it wasn"t for the mods im not sure at what stage arma would be like.

you can download a free model but the textures are pretty bad , blurred out rather. so i suggest you try to download the demo then. but it isn't free indeed for the full version. there were some nice discounts on steam a while back. i think it was 5$ for complete pack, arma 2 that is.

The best MMO game is EverQuest, I quit playing it 6mos ago and I miss it very much, Im now playing Eve Online. I tried most other games but they dont appeal to me at all. Eve Online is really cool you can play for free even though its 16 bucks a mos to play it. You just buy in game PLEX's with in game currency called ISK.

Out of all the games ever released EverQuest is my favorite still, Eve online is good but takes a very long time to get skills up.
