I’m not a fan of Smash Bros.

I don’t know, I just get really bored playing it. But that’s just me.


It's not just you. It doesn't really catch my interest at all either.

Oh good. I don’t know, it’s just the fact that it’s doing the same thing over and over again. I do like a game with a decent story.

Majority of first person shooters are boring.

can't be an unpopular *opinon* if it's true :nekothink:

Yay, someone agrees with me. :3 Everyone I know seem to only want to play FPS.



Just saw the post above me - I think Smash Bros games are boring too!

I've never been a fan of the main series of Pokemon games too. I just don't care about beating others with Pokemon. Yawn.

TBH, I want to like modern fighting games, but they lost me with all these paid characters and costumes. with any other genre, especially single player games, it adds to the game, but paid characters might have advantages that free characters don't have, I feel like it takes away from those who might not be able to get them all...

DLC is bread and butter at this point

based on inflation, we pay too little for video games anyways

Very true. Although they are trying get a law passed here for Loot Boxes on games to come under the gambling act.

the DLC does disappoint me tbh. Probably why my favourite game in the franchise is Brawl

The last of us 2

Abby is just a bad character nothing to do with the way she looks or the fact she's friends with a trans person

Old games weren't necessarily better, they just seemed that way because of the environment we were in (mostly)

In MMOs the character shouldn't be the centre of the story

Skyrim doesn't need mods to be good. There, I said it.

It's also probably a lot of work to make games to the minimum standards people expect these days.
The original Tomb Raider games were hacked together by a few blokes in a shed but you can't really do that anymore.
There's probably a talent issue as well because people who can write highly optimized C++ are also wanted by hedge funds who tend to pay a little bit more than game studios.

The Pokemon franchize does not deserve the popularity they get. Games that have lasted as long as Pokemon have always reinvented itself. They always tried new things especially other Nintendo games. Super Mario, The Legend of Zelda, these games changed as technology and capabilities changed. Other than the side games made by other teams (which surpass them), the main games that people talk about are leave a lot to be desired whilst other games have always been way ahed. Even when before the 3D graphics, the sprite work was lacking compared to other sprite based RPGs. Too much the shortcomings of GF are brushed off and given passes with the idea that a game for "everyone" should not be enjoyable to older people. Right now they are coasting on their previous success which is why they nostalgia bait so much. Stuck in the past, unable to evolve with the pokemon they design.
