Does /b/ think video gaming is dead? I know video games are ever gonna stop being made but I think that in a way video gaming is pretty much dead. It's all just FPS and overhyped displays of graphic capabilities now. It seems like only 13 year olds could like most of the video games that are coming out now.
>Pic related: the biggest disappointment in video gaming history
Nah, video games have always been shit. A lot of the games you liked then were shit because everything is awesome when you're a kid. You have no point of reference.
A good way to tell if your feelings are wrong is to ask if what you're saying is basically an adlib of your chubby dad lamenting over the state of modern music
If you're a poorfag, try Google Cardboard. If you have lots of money, try Oculus Rift.
Also, OP is a stupid faggot who is extremely short-sighted and has been so busy staring at pretty graphics, he has not noticed the incredible physics engines that modern games are using.
I mean, maybe you're right. There are still a few games that come out that I like now but for the most part it's incredibly overhyped and incredibly short and underdeveloped. Games come out now and they aren't even fully completed, like MCC or GTA V.
>mfw they're just adding heists now, the game isn't even out for PC, and they've already stated they're beginning to work on GTA VI
I couldn't give a shit about graphics and having great physics engines doesn't mean shit if the games themselves are short, boring, repetitive, and shitty copies of more successful games.
Yeah it's pretty fucking dismal. There are a handful of indie developers that are making interesting games but overall it's just really bad.
Bioshock Infinite was so fucking depressing
Not when the dark souls series is still being made and gaining some popularity.
I remember when games were meant to be beaten and I finally beat my first genesis game. I was pumped.
Also the mass effect series pushed gaming in terms of basically making a playable, changable movie. Gameplay, mechanics, unpredictably, and storytelling is the new formula.
Too many fags play every CoD for this to catch on yet, and ME needs coop, better multiplayer.>>601887899
Oops I forgot pic here it is!
Yeah but they don't get the hype they need to have any real effect on the gaming industry. As a whole it looks like it's going straight down the toilet and it doesn't look like Nintendo will be able to save video gaming like last time.
i dont think games will be good anymore, at least while "gaming" is still a fad.
There is no incentive for developers to make a good game, when they can just make millions on a "CoD" game.
not dead, just in recession.
It's really the gamers to blame, Niggers need to stop eating up all the trash game coming out
>looking at you, anyone who buys CoD games or Battlefields any more
If morons keep gobbling up the trash, of course companies like the Borg are gonna go with the easiest route, rehash the same trash over and over.
There are still good games being made, Divinity OS, Darkest Dungeon, Arma 3 if you want an actual good FPS.
People need to wisen the fuck up and STOP GIVING EA AND BLIZZARD MONEY.
I stopped playing wow when activision came along and actually put playable carebears in the game. Not like all you fags who talk about how shit a game/franchise is, yet continue to shell out money.
Oh yeah absolutely. Journalism is an arm of the market, and the market as a whole is wrapped around the consumer instead of visa versa.
It's impossible to be a conscientious consumer because all reviews are tainted, Amazon included.
Would be nice for them to remake a few good classics. Squaresoft could make money by doing that. They released some decent games. However i dont think they will ever take a step back to remake and update ff7 or 8 or legend of dragoon.
the problem with indie games is that its a trend now to release a game in "alpha" when it's barely playable, then trickle out tiny updates that never really add anything to the game.
its because being a "gamer" or a "nerd" is hip right now, so everyone and their brother wants to be a game developer, but they don't know how to put out a good game.
That's goose shit, OP. While I agree the COD franchise is repetitive and their fanbase consists of a lot of underage cunts, the same can be said of most if not all other franchises.
Look at Zelda. Shit is overrated as fuck, and every game is the same typical adventure shit as the last, yet every single faggot within earshot clusters over it and treats it like the holy grail.
Mario is the same, The elder scrolls, GTA, pretty much any FPS game is the same. Any AAA title is gonna be the same shit because the devs know what their players want, and they're gonna keep doing it.
>TL;DR Any game company with a big enough fanbase will do the same shit, stop ribbing on just one or two
Yeah after buying the Master Chief Collection I was done with all these games that are coming out now. I hate what they've done with Assassin's Creed by the way. It really started off as something great and they absolutely shit all over that by AC3. It sucks because it seems like even when actual good games come out they get remade so many times so the developers can keep making money off a popular franchise and kill the integrity of the games themselves.
I feel like I never gave much of a fuck about video games after around 20, the newer games I mean. Just recently re-bought a 360 and I'm playing old stuff like Gears of War 1 and Halo 3. What the fuck help me, I feel like I'm doing it wrong
Op you disgusting piece of shit sick fucko, people like you are the ever living cancer of humanity. You should be shipped across land to be auctioned off to be a slave all the while having to endure genital beatings with razors, red hot screws, cactuses, wood, thumbtacks, and dozens more. You will be forced to work all day in the hot sun while your balls and the tip of your cock will be pierced with various torture instruments. Your mother and all the other female offspring in your family will be sold to giant interspeces gorilla men as sex slaves. Is that what you want faggot all of your family members gettin pounded by a giant fucking gorilla op?
Yeah that's definitely an issue. You see a lot of people buying games as parts of their identity rather than actual games.
Like Minecraft is barely a game but it's been massively successful because of the overall indie/update interest as well as the game's overall personality, which is honestly pretty charming.

zelda, mario, elderscrolls, and gta were good games back in the day. Now they're just shit, like what op was describing.
just overhyped shit they they polish with new graphics.
no way, ive been playing some older games i missed out on when i was a kid and been having a blast.

I chose 343 as my example because they themselves didn't start the Halo franchise but they absolutely shit all over it and are a prime example of the gaming industry as a whole slowly morphing into one big shit fest of the same game being remade over and over again. As for the Nintendo titles you mentioned the ONLY reason they're still around is because "muh nintendo." Only hipster gamers and little kids actually buy new Zelda and Mario games. The last time Nintendo made something good was when the Game Cube was still popular, after that they've been downhill releasing Zelda and Mario over and over again to keep the brand name hipsters happy. The problem is nothing new is being done with video games anymore and that's why I think the industry is dead in a sense.
To be blunt video games are going to take a quantum leap in the next 10 years or so. The Oculus Rift is just the beginning to the coming madness of a virtual artificial reality. It's only a matter of time before we have holographic webcams too where you sit across the table having a beer with someone half-way around the world.
Hey, I'm sure a lot of the games that you played when you were younger were awesome! On the other hand, a lot of them weren't, but those aren't the ones you remember playing.
Plus you have to consider that nostalgia goggles are definitely a thing.
Damn that sucks anon, I just bought the Halo 1 anniversary game for 360 and I'm pleased because it was only 23 dollars and it doesn't take much to charm me with nostalgia...
i hope some people make some good content with the oculus rift, that could be some really cool shit.
as long and its not fucking gimmicky shit or hentai porn,
games like the new silent hill demo would be awesome, or something like that Amnesia game.
though sadly im sure it end up going nowhere, especially since facebook owns them now.
From business standpoint, yeah it's bigger than ever, but from the consumer's standpoint it's going waayyy downhill. When I say the industry is dead I mean more that the general level of quality has gone waayy down. Sure the games sell incredibly well because they're all games from the same franchises that have proven themselves like 8 years ago and they're riding off that good name and all the 13 year olds are going to buy it up. But as far as actual quality and effort the gaming industry has gone to shit for the most part.
The gaming industry is just a hollow shell of what it used to be. Money now is the only focus. Everything is secondary. Gaming is just another business.
The gaming industry used to focus on story. On building characters. On doing something that has never been done before. Now it's all about Call of Duty and battlefield, complete bastardizations of what gaming is really about.
I've played through hundreds of games, and now I have no desire to keep playing. The occasional good games, like Witcher 3, will be lost in the shitstorm of low quality games continued to be advertised.
What happened to video games, man? They used to so much better. It's actually really sad. Not even the old games bring back the feels they used to.
