    Or predictable ones, like most rpgs. Save the princess/universe/sibling. Don’t forget that item you’ll have to return back to its rightful owner.

    they tried with SNES-CD to SuperDisc...but that became a clusterfuck of who owned the rights to what...eventually pushing Nintendo away to the SuperFX chip on SNES.

    Sony wanted all the profits from Snes CD games, I sure as hell can't blame Nintendo for wanting no part of that deal. And we have MSU-1 hacks, so it made up for it. That being said, N64 carts were a huge mistake and they never should've gone with them. The N64 could've had a chance. Ooh 64 MB of storage, what convenience!

    -sandbox games are for the most part boring
    -playing a game of a franchise usually lessens my chance to play another game in said series rather than improve, even if I liked the game
    -virtual boardgames can be awesome, even when played solo
    -traditional conventions (e.g. E3) need to stop or TOTALLY shift their focus from a commercial-marathon to something like the Oscars

    Is that controversial? About one third of the people in the announcement say the same thing. And at this point, it's just speculation from everyone, as it's not released yet. :P

    I don't like Pokemon games. They have too much grind.

    BOTW... sucks

    Empty open world, waaay too many repetitive (and some were just completely pointless) shrines, revealing parts of the map was annoying and repetitive. Boss designs were meh. That is my reasoning. Overall for the worst Zelda game I played, I give it 5.7/10

    All Nintendo First Party games suck after the GameCube, people are just too high on nostalgia to realize.

    This may vary depending upon how you define first party (Nintendo owns a lot of devs but they go under different names and have complicated business arrangements, even if they are rarely able to say "poke this I am going to work for Microsoft" if they so desired).

    In general I never played Nintendo consoles for first party games (probably why the Wii, Wii U, Switch and 3ds passed me by in the end while they were still active) but I don't know if I can get all the way to sucking. Also the DS came after the GC.
    In any real way innovative, groundbreaking or as compelling as what came before? Definitely not with the possible exception of some warioware titles which were still pretty good. Exemplars of gaming in general? Definitely not in the way some seem to cast them as (I really do maintain small European devs making open world RPGs on the 360 gave us everything BOTW had and more).
    Out and out sucking. Harder sell for me. Most of them go from mediocre to acceptable.

    Gaming has not gotten worse since the 'old days', there are still many masterpieces to check out today. you just need to take off your nostalgia glasses and look in the right places.
    Megaman is one of the best platformers ever made, and it stands head and toe over every 2d mario honestly.
    Steam needs to become linux exclusive, or start embracing linux more. Windows is extremely slow and buggy, and the kernel is just complete trash. The day devs discover linux and how easier it is to code for than windows, the day windows gaming dies.
    Piracy is bad. If you don't like a developer's games don't buy them. watch reviews first, and play demos if they are available. maybe get a copy from a friends house and try that out for a while. just don't steal them. If the game isn't exactly a good price in your country try using a VPN or something to get better prices.
    Open Source is the future. anyone using closed source in 2020 for any emulator or project needs to reevaluate their life and what theyre doing.
    Sony is pretty overrated. most of their well known exclusives are 3rd person narratives, which are fine, but movies and films tend to have better writing. same for lots of anime and a few western cartoons. Plus most of the stuff theyre doing, like removing linux from ps3, heavily enforcing censorship, and doing paid online after xbox is pretty anticonsumer,
    Super Mario 64 is overrated. It's a great game, don't get me wrong but future mario titles have done stuff so much better. Its controls also don't compare to odyssey's or sunshine's.
    Zelda Four Swords adventures on GCN is the best zelda game ever made, and one of the best titles nintendo's pumped out. fight me.
    NES is also overrated. Just because something saved the gaming industry doesnt make it free of critique. AVGN already showed me there's a lot of shit to be found on the system, as a byproduct of the game crash a while ago. plus, many of the games found there either aren't that good today or have been succeeded by much better entries. SMW alone is better than the entire mario quadrilogy on NES for example. (yes, SMB2 usa and jp are seperate games and i will treat them as such)
    The contra 16 bit titles run loops around the NES games. Hard Corps especially. one of the best 16 bit games ever made.
    Only games i cared for on that system were the megaman games.
    NES was basically the 80s version of the wii. a few good games found in a sea of shovelware.

    Was creating their own Linux distro specifically for Steam gaming not already "embracing Linux more"? What about Proton, developed by Valve specifically to increase and encourage Linux gaming (even if it's just a fork of Wine)?

    It's not Steam that's the problem, Valve wholeheartedly supports Linux, and it's not developers who have a problem either: it's the utterly shit marketshare Linux has with average consumers. Nobody is going to waste time or money developing a game for a platform with less than a 1% marketshare (according to Steam's stats). You want more Linux games? Convince the billions of people using Windows to swap OS's. Good luck with that.

    And that's supposed to be hard how..?
    Im sorry lol, but showing a person the benefits of using linux alone is able to get them to switch immediately. Most people already have a few gripes with windows 10 (the nonexistent security, it being so slow on less powerful computers, having to shut down the PC and all the activities youve been doing just to update, etc) and linux fixes all those problems AND adds more. Linux already has security since it's open source, the kernel is way faster by a landslide, and updating is as easy as typing a command into the ternimal and have it run in the background. Plus you can rice your desktop to make it look nicer and more futuristic, programs using wine actually run better than they do on windows, and being open source means that if you're proficient in programming enough, you could actually make your own linux OS. Android uses Linux's kernel and look how far it got.

    I mean, has Linux suddenly become a massively popular consumer OS since it's launch in the 90s? No. Why do you think that is?

    Because everyone uses Windows, and everyone else who's not using Windows uses Mac OS. If you think it'd be "easy" to convince billions of people to abandon what is likely the only desktop operating system they've ever used for their entire life, you're delusional. Windows is, and will remain, massively popular for one major reason: Because everyone and their dog uses it. Linux might be better in every single conceivable way, you could provide thousands of data points showing that this is true to every single Windows users on the planet...and virtually nobody is going to swap because "I've been using Windows since 3.11! I'm very familiar with it! It's all I know! Why should I change when what I do already works fine?? I don't want to throw away what I've already used and learned the last 5+/10+/15+/20+ years!" etc etc etc.

    Linux will only ever become a popular consumer desktop OS the day Microsoft discontinues Windows entirely, and turns Windows into a Linux distro.

    EDIT:
    Spoken like someone who's never interacted with the average consumer. :rolleyes:

    Also, Android only became a major success because it was the only half-decent alternative to iOS. If Symbian evolved along the same lines as iOS and Android, we'd all be using that instead of Android. If Windows Phone didn't turn out to be an utter garbage OS, we'd all be using that instead of Android. Android was fucking awful, especially in the beginning, and is barely any good today.

    The Witcher 3 is one of the most "boring" games ever made, while The Witcher 2 was quite good (not great though)

    PS4 and Xbox One, together with the new Xbox and PS5 are NOT gaming consoles. I remember when I first got the PS4, at launch, bought it at midnight.

    Put my first game and was like, "oh yeah FINALLY now the Blue Ray drive is gonna be FAST ENOUGH so you don't have to install PART of the game in the HDD!" Half an hour later, realized the ENTIRE game was installed to the HDD, I was pissed but more than anything, I was DISSAPOINTED.

    Then, I realized Sony should not be trusted anymore, they are ambiguous, and that is, in order to deceive.

    Then, Killzone franchise was killed in favor of Horizon Zero Dawn, vomit. Motorstorm team was killed, vomit. And at a later time Naughty Dog team was also killed (we all know how) BIG vomit. SONY SUCKS donkey balls now.

    I don't see what's wrong with installing the game to the hard drive
    if the disc breaks you still have the game on your hdd
    Also HZD i've heard really good things about. unfortunately i dont have a PS4 or a good PC.

    okay now that's just bullshit. what would be the point of installing it to HDD then??? i get being able to load it faster and all but it'd just make more sense for it to be copied to the HDD so you can play without the disc. Plus it'd be easier to make backups and whatnot. whatever. PS5's SSD is going to be much faster than an HDD so if the games do install to SSD at least the load times will be much faster.
