>>315380741 It's close, but I had more fun with Splatoon.
It's been a decent year though, with Until Dawn, MGSV, Bloodborne, Splatoon, Mario Maker, Woolly World, Fatal Frame, BamHam Knight, Rainbow Curse and SOMA. Sadly I only have Xenoblade, FAST racing Neo, Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam and Mario Tennis to look forward to for the rest of the year.
>>315382130 Why would GOTY be decided by gameplay? When has it ever? Last of Us got like 100 GOTY awards, lol. If it were given to the game with the best gameplay, something that's actually original would get all the GOTY awards, like Crypt of the Necrodancer
Witcher 3 Best VA and dialogue hands down, comfy as fuck game you can drop hours into, good length, lots of gameplay value. It's a visually impressive game as well and much more so due to the scale and diversity of the world.
Bloodborne Excellent combat mechanics, atmosphere is abolsutely nailed and perfected to a a T. Level design is incredibly good with good pacing.
IMO bloodborne is getting the goty but witcher 3 is really good in its own right.
>>315382482 >literally has 10 times the third party support 3ds has >will be supported for it's entire life cycle like the psp >sony even admitted it hasn't stopped making first party games, just stopped AAA development which nobody gives a fuck about anyway >has more variety than the 3ds >has multiple monster hunters and ARPGS that don't look like pixelated dog shit and are actually controllable because we have a second analogue stick etc etc etc
>>315382741 >implying graphics don't matter >implying you've even played bloodborne >implying i dont own a 3ds and know how bad MH is and how overrated it is.
You get pixel hunter and suddenly you think the platform is gold lmao,
Firstly, BB is a new IP, it's not an installment, sequel or spin off of souls games so comparing them is literally retarded, If you played it you'd understand there are fundamental differences between the souls series and BB
So confirmed for never having played it and not knowing what you're talking about lmao
Full idort here, it was ok but definitely the worst Souls game. Framerate was Demon's souls-tier which is embarrassing given that they've had an extra six years to learn how to write code. It removed too many game systems without adding enough to compensate. I couldn't imagine it being anyone's GOTY unless they only own a PS4 in which case their opinion isn't valid anyway.
>>315383119 >If you played it you'd understand there are fundamental differences between the souls series and BB
y do you bother replying? mustards just mod in some textures barely resembling hunters gear (http://www.nexusmods.com/darksouls2/mods/633/?) and a bloodborne title screen (http://www.nexusmods.com/darksouls/mods/898/?) and they think that's it, now they played bloodborne
It was a new IP, it wasnt meant to be an extention of the souls series in any way and the game itself is it's own example of this. Your argument would only be relevant if this was dark souls 3 but it's not. The fact that you played it and couldnt identify and come to this conclusion on your own is alarming, there are fundamental differences between souls and bloodborne.
>>315383541 >there are fundamental differences between souls and bloodborne. Barely. There are more similarities than differences. Level/encounter structure, combat style, multiplayer, From's terrible framerate
it may have a different name but it's as much a descendant of Dark Souls as that is from Demon's Souls.
>>315383694 >he doesn't think it's the best game that came out this year >it must be because he hasn't played it, that's the only possible explanation! You fanboys seriously disgust me, it actually makes me uncomfortable knowing people like you exist
>>315383798 You're calling it a souls rehash when it clearly isn't, it's just a lazy blanket statement you use to deflect anger away from the fact that you dropped money on a system you didnt want.
You're saying it's unpolished while cherry picking disregarding the fact that it is one of the most polished games that has been released this year,
You're complaining about frame rate and it's intelectually dishonest, console hardware is limited, we all know, it doesn't actually give credit to your argument, especially when you want to completely disregard the amount of detail that went into bloodborne and how amazing it looks.
Good games that people play long after the release date typically don't win GOTY awards. It's also the reason why fighting games won't win any GOTY awards.
Up until MH4U came out, you still had plenty of threads of people playing MH3U years after its release. It always gets regular threads with minimum shitposting of people who want to play the games with each other.
I'm glad in a way that MH never aims to be AAA status. It means that it doesn't get AAA hype, nor does it get AAA exposure or overexposure.
>>315383986 >>perfect gameplay >>no lock-on Goddammit, stop making it so fucking obvious that you have no clue about video game design and never played a MH. Lock on in MH makes as much sense as lock on when fighting the guardian in Sen's Fortress or that huge piece of shit in the Depths. It actually makes even less sense because monsters have like 8 different hitzones you must focus on.
>invisible HP time sink garbage shit bosses https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6OiiwDMd-VU
Watch this before you shitpost again.
>3 minutes >time sink
And this is quest for FOUR (4) players, he is alone. You must be very shit at the game.
>ayynon, you're a comedy superstar That's you and your fucking NeoGAF retard frans praising Souls all day implying those shit games are actually good.
Now make more "p-please make our exclusive game GotY, /v/" threads.
Fuck, Sony boys are pathetic.
>>315384070 >I, do in fact, care about realism in games. Because you're a retarded casual.
>>315384585 >That looks pixelated and clinky as hell, have you experienced how responsive and tuned bloodbornes combat mechanics are? >enemies still have that autotracking shit so positioning barely even matters >just press dodge button in the right moment, can basically survive only using one hand in a fight if you don't suck Souls games are all shit. Stop being delusional. The only reason they are hard is bacause of trial and error shit and shit like dust killing you, see webm.
>>315384795 When this is the best point you can make arguing a game you don't like has inferior gameplay, you know you should stop posting.
>>315384949 Did you really just say this while posting this webm to prove Bloodborne gameplay is good? This is not even PvE and it just shows two retards jumping around trying to not get hit. Why not just posting Counter Strike knive fights on e sped up server while you're at it?
>>315385085 You posted a video of some guy spamming 1 attack at a snails pace and rolling to a boss that gives you 4 seconds of leway to predict attacks. That shit is whack.
You're completely oversimplifying what's going on in that webm and how fast faced and responsive you have to be with BB's combact mechanics. There's other shit going on too, unlike spam attack and roll in that boring ass video you posted.
>>315385085 >two retards jumping around trying to not get hit While yours shows a poorly animated retard "jumping" (oh god, i can't even call monhun's clunnky movement and dodge system "jumping") around a monster and hitting pretty much empty space beneath him while still bleeding him?
>>315385306 Fuck, you're casual. I played BB long enough and specifically Souls 1 PvP to know how fucking shit it is. It's exactly what I said; two retards jumping around trying to not get hit. I have no idea how anyone can play this longer than maybe 20 hours when there are actual PvE fighting games.
>>315385516 >two retards jumping around trying to not get hit Every 1 vs 1 battle in entire history of humanity. I fail to see your point and how it's related to the fact you've posted a badly animated fragment of battle with horrible monster hitboxes.
>>315385591 >not rated M >rather family friendly style except for cutting off monster limbs >therefore many children buying a game Is is supposed to surprise anyone? What is your point? How does this matter?
>>315385781 >They dont play shitty clunky gook rehash cashgrab game on a playskool handheld like manchildrens As opposed to a shitty clunky gook rehash cashgrab game on a dudebro console like manchildren?
>>315385705 It's not me who started posting PvP videos out of a sudden. I just pity you for playing something like Bloodborne for longer than a few hours against other players. If you want to play PvP, at least play an actual fighting game, preferably Street Fighter. The shit you post is just disgusting.
The MH webm just showed something you don't have in any shitty Souls game, 7 iframes dodging instead of 12-20 and backflips and sidehops perfectly designed for the monster's moveset just waiting for you to actually master and time it perfectly.
>>315386242 What sidestepping? It took From like 15 games if we count King's Field to implement sidehopping with Bloodborne, something Zelda had in 98 and Metroid in 2001. And Monster Hunter since 2005.
And dodging something in Souls is never rewarding, it's floaty as fuck and you have way too many iframes.
I'm not sure if this game is for your personal GOTY, or the game you are guessing wins most GOTY awards.
But my Games Of The Year Are:
1. The Witcher 3 - Gameplay was sup-bar, but it was definitely not as bad as some people say, basically it's bamham without the ebin combos. The story and VA work is incredible, the quest design is solid at worst and beautiful at best, the graphics are mindblowing and it has real thought and heart put into it.
2. MGSV - Even though it was a huge disappointment, it was still a great game. The gameplay is fantastic, FOX engine is fantastic and it had some great moments.
3. Cities: Skylines - I'm a sucker for a good city sim, and this bad boy delivered. Especially with the DLC, it's just a really great game.
And if I'd have to guess who gets the most GOTYs, I'd say The Witcher 3.
>>315386142 Almost all MonHun videos that get posted are obviously, transparently deceptive bogus showing the less than 1% of playtime instances where you do something visceral like get a flashy smash with a greatsword, so you can pretend your game doesn't come down to 99.9% grinding and so you can gloss over the fact that it looks, feels and controls like stiff garbage, especially compared to games of the same general gameplay guidelines
If you honestly think monster hunter has better gameplay than a souls game just stop playing games, you are beyond hope
>>315384908 last year was cisquisition, who was released a few weeks before announcement. This year is literally either undertale or fallout4.bloodborne is too generic, witcher is problematic, splatoon is from pearl harbour demonland. MGS is already forgotten.
>>315386575 >Almost all MonHun videos that get posted are obviously, transparently deceptive bogus showing the less than 1% of playtime instances where you do something visceral like get a flashy smash with a greatsword
You sound like a typical casual who wants everything rewarding in your games to be handed to you. The novelty of landing really great blows like that is part of the joy in the game and something Souls has nothing to compare it with. Souls is incredibly dull mechanically speaking.
>>315386575 >Almost all MonHun videos that get posted are obviously, transparently deceptive bogus showing the less than 1% of playtime instances where you do something visceral like get a flashy smash with a greatsword, so you can pretend your game doesn't come down to 99.9% grinding and so you can gloss over the fact that it looks, feels and controls like stiff garbage, especially compared to games of the same general gameplay guidelines >please let me tell you my opinion about this game I don't know shit about >le grinding meme
>If you honestly think monster hunter has better gameplay than a souls game just stop playing games, you are beyond hope I actually think you are the biggest piece of shit on the planet if you even imply Souls has like 20 % the gameplay quality of a current Monster Hunter game, not even talking about MHX which is curazy as fuck.
Anyway. Have this:
The very first 10 seconds are more impressive than everything you could ever show me Souls related. I know those shit games inside out.
>>315386903 At least look up the key quests. They're 99 % hunting quests and you never have to grind for any armor if you're good enough. I completely ignored the crafting mechanics until I was G Rank.
And what is bad about collecting materials about armors with unique gems only YOU have and no one else on the fucking niternet because they are this rare? It's fun as fuck, so is armor mixing which actually makes sense and is deep and complex in MH and not just some fashion shit because armors are useless, unpolished shit.
>>315386916 I don't get it what am I supposed to be looking at? That you the player can time attacks to a monster that has 3 animated movesets? That's supposed to be impressive? Compared to Ebrietas that has like 20? lol
>>315387030 >The entire video is less impressive that Amygdala webm posted above. So you are factually retarded.
>reflexes to punish a monster's move that is paragraphed for half a second with a clumsy shit weapon class less impressive than buttonsmashing a huge piece of shit that doesn't attack once in the entire video.
>>315387230 >actually comparing Monster Hunter attacks which are perfectly designed for 100 different approaches because there are over 10 different weapon classes that must always focus on different things and hitboxes with the random waggling attacks of most unpolished, disgusting Souls monsters
>>315387258 When you know the moveset of the monster you can predict and punish 99% of shit he can pull against you. It's not different for bloodborne as well except looks way more impressive as you can actually do animation cancels with pretty strict timings which is exactly what guy on webm above does by combining charge into visceral after stunning amy's head.
Jesus christ this thread serious? MH has infinitely more depth in every possible way compared to Souls, let alone BB. I swear its fanboy retards that have never ever hunted in their life spouting gibberish. Its like comparing dynasty warriors button masher to bayonetta or dmc.
>>315386916 >that perfectly timed hit when Shagaru is mid-air >literally managing that this tiny pit of a lance hits this tiny had mid-air and getting the monster out of the air which grants you some free damage This is what feels rewarding in a game.
>>315387891 you can pretty much do the same shit in bloodborne...
the only difference is combat is constantly moving, it's not like monster hunter where you can essentially stand still, wait and time an attack and think you're good. If you do that in BB you simply die so pulling off hits like that is harder
>>315387980 You must be clinically braindead to believe Souls has somehow deeper or better and more polished gameplay than MH which at this point also is 60 FPS and doesn't prioritize better graphics over better playability.
Perfect positioning, perfect timing, your very own play style; going full counter lancing, ifreames with Evasion +1 and Dual Sword which let you sidehop since 2005 or hit and run with a Great Sword which requires knowing the monster inside out so you can actually charge your blade and get more hits in that aren't just shitty level 1 charges.
There also are bows and guns which are actually good and fun unlike bows in Souls.
Can we talk about bows in Souls? How absolutely fucking disgusting they are? How you can't even look down or up and how there are invisible walls blocking your arrows everywhere? Can we talk about this?
Let's talk about how abysmally shit the bow mechanics in Souls are, how there are invisible walls blocking arrows everywhere, how you can't even look up or down and how the AI doesn't care that you shoot it when you're 10 feet away from it.
>>315386916 >https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hiOqlyNMxY4 The best thing abut this is that no one in this thread would be able to beat a 140 Shagaru solo except for the people that already play MH4U for a few hundred hours... maybe.
You know, Souls probably owes a lot of debt to Monster Hunter for its combat system.
It has that same slow and weighty combat system that MH has had since 2004 that forces you to strategizes over mashing buttons. It has that same "tie your special evasive options like rolling and running to stamina" gameplay. The tail-cuts-turn-into-weapons mechanic was also probably taken from Monster Hunter.
Subsequently, the popularity of Souls has led to people searching for other games like it, and Monster Hunter, as the Souls series's older brother of sorts, is one of them.
I know for one that I got into MH after people in the Souls community told me how awesome it was.
So it's a mutually beneficial relationship. So I don't know why Souls and MH fans are at each other's throats here.
>>315389061 Pretty much this. Even with all their similarities, they differ a lot in their approach and comparing them seems pretty futile. Though this is the kind of cancer I've come to expect from /v/
