Re: Let's Talk Video Games

The game I've played with the 'best' graphics is Starcraft Brood War. Everything's crisp, clear, no bullshit.  Oh, it also has the best gameplay ever.

As is what makes a good game.

Eeeh, we're arguing semantics now, but what makes an 'enjoyable' game is a little more subjective. A 'good' game is a game that works. Going back to what I was saying about graphics, when you say 'shit', I'm not sure if you mean 'enjoyable' or 'good'. I think RIOT looks like a fun game (I don't know yet, it's not out, but let's assume I'm right) and I'm really impressed with the graphics. Are these shit graphics? To some they are, I guess, that's why I'm not sure about the use of that word in your description.

Let's take another game, FTL. I played over 200 hours on that game, it's great, I love it. It's a GOOD game as well as an ENJOYABLE game because it keeps its promise and runs well, as well as being something that I find interesting and fun. The graphics are good as well, because they're clean and consistent. Are they shit graphics because it's pixel art? If you don't enjoy pixel art, is the game any less enjoyable? Would the game be better with state of the art Unreal Engine graphics? I would say 'no' to both of those questions, that's what I mean by the subjectivity of 'shitty' graphics.

I mean, can you honestly say Windwaker or Mario Galaxy has shitty graphics?

Again, I could be reading your words wrong. If you mean shitty as in technical issues like frame rate drops or clipping issues, then everything above it sort of moot.

Re: Let's Talk Video Games

Obviously pixel art games intend to have pixel/8-bit graphics, I'm talking more in general, as for video games that are meant to have clearer crisper graphics, doing a good job of that is a good tiebreaker opposed to the same game but with fewer pixels.

Re: Let's Talk Video Games

Graphics, imo, are probably 7th or 8th in an importance factor. But I also have as many teo games played as just about anyone

Re: Let's Talk Video Games

So did anybody get in on that sweet, sweet Splatfest action on Splatoon? I was team hot dogs, so I only made a few super sea snails this time.

I'm trying to get a really good combo on my clothes. I've got two 'fast squid form' on my head, which is really nice. I'd like to have an ink saver, defense, attack up, and fast ink replenish somewhere on the shirt and shoes if I can get a lucky roll.

I'd like to say that Dishonored is one of the most overrated games I've played.

This generation of gaming sucks. Everything is over-hyped. All you need to have fun is a Wii U, and a good computer. the Xbox 1 and ps4 have like no games until a year from now. The Wii U sucks except for its exclusives. I don't see any more consoles in the future other than the Nintendo NX. If anyone makes any consoles in the far future, they will just be boxes that stream games.

Re: Let's Talk Video Games

I've just ordered a new PC for games. Haven't had a console since 360/Wii.

i5 current gen, GeForce gtx 750, 8 gb ram, 2 tb hard drive, 23" monitor (Although I might spec bigger when it the tower arrives in store) and wireless included. 550 all in. Not a bad price for a mid range and I'll probably upgrade the graphics card in a couple of years but it's decent to play skyrim on high graphics setting for the time being.

Intrigued by the idea of Steam machines but I can't see them taking off tbh but yeah I agree with you Green, that's the way consoles are going.

Re: Let's Talk Video Games

I'm more of a pc guy myself although I do have a xbox one. The only games I have are gta v and fifa 15 but I still play both a hell of a lot. For the casual gamer, consoles still have alot to offer in my opinion but the only games coming out soon that interest me are Fallout 4 and battlefront. Although there pretty damn late bringing out the backwards compatibility with games on 360 for the xbone, I'm still looking forward to that to. I just find it easier when im tired to play the xbox than my pc most of the time, will still be upgrading the spec of my desktop soon for uni though which im hyped for.

Yea it's too confusing. No one is going to know which one to buy and basically it's a computer with steam OS on it. Like whatever. The only good one is going to be the portable steam machines, but even then I'd rather just use my alienware laptop with an hdmi port.

Re: Let's Talk Video Games

It's not that that I have a problem with. I'm sure people said the same about Android when it was realised but that was a hit. I'm just not sure that it offers enough to drag people away from consoles and computers still offer the better packages for PC gamers. And whilst I haven't tried it, I can't see myself liking the double touchpads.
Steam have a big enough market to make it work but a lot of games on Steam are available elsewhere so I think it would depend on exclusive titles and how many indie developers get on board with them.

Yea I have no idea how I'll get used to that new controller. I'm just going to wait for the Xbox one Elite Controller to come out. I agree with you, it might be big. But I just don't see the difference between buying a powerful laptop and a steam machine. I don't want them to fail, I might just get one of the more expensive ones just to see what all the fuss is about.
