>Go to Leddit
>Everyone thinks Fallout 4 will be amazing
>Got to /v/
>Everyone thinks it will be shit
Why is this?
Because /v/ only likes games that have a small budget, if a large budget game doesnt have literally everything in the world in it then the game instantly becomes 0/10
>"LOL LOOK AT THESE "ULTRA SETTINGS" ON MY PRE BUILD PC VERSION>literally right after new caps and a trailer comes out that dis proves it
actually it used to be the other way around where a chink ran Reddit and the biggest jew on earth ran 4chan not too long ago
would you guys pow the Pao?
Reddit is the perfect catalyst for retard meme hype because of the "culture" over there and their voting system
Most people at reddit who are "fans" of fallout have probably only played 3 and NV, the same as the "elder scrolls fans" probably only played Skyrim.
You still get your shit kicked in for having a different opinion, only instead of numbers its a bunch of inline quotes
In retrospect however I guess if somebody really didn't like your opinion they'd have to go through the effort of actually replying to it
Good, I was hoping someone played it. I have a few questions:
>what are the controls like?
>is there an ADS feature for every gun?
>what type of customization is there for guns? (scopes, colors, stocks, etc?)
>are there swords/knives?
>is there a decent amount of other vaults to explore?
>Implying memes aren't free.
>Implying people give away 4chin passes ever.
4chan and Reddit attract wildly different userbases
At Reddit, most people are optimists with an outwardly "upbeat" or "happy" personality. They don't anticipate to be cheated or mislead because they naturally see the good in people and, by extension, companies, and for this reason they have trouble expecting Fallout 4 to be a bad game.
/v/ draws in the pessimists and cynics. These people have paid money for bad games before and expect it to happen every single time. They've developed a particularly negative opinion of Bethesda and Todd Howard in particular, because there's a large number of people here who didn't care for the changes made in Skyrim. Also, New Vegas was considered by most people on /v/ to be a better game than Fallout 3, and New Vegas's developers probably will have nothing to do with Fallout 4.
If someone disagrees with you on 4chan, they don't negative karma bomb you until your posts get memory hole'd forever until you make a new account. Instead you just get called a "faggot."
I guess words hurt, right? Sniff sniff! ;_;
>work friends talking about FO4
>they know I love NV because I recommended it to them after they overlooked it
>ask if I'm going to take a day off to play it
>say I don't have high expectations of it and am probably just going to pirate it in my spare time
>they say I "spend too much time on /v/" and "contrarianism isn't as cool as you think"
thanks /v/, now my opinion is officially only hivemind.
but it literally doesn't matter here since you are anonymous. If you embarrass yourself you can just post again and pretend it never happened. On Reddit, people remember your name.
Hipsters in the sense that they're counter culture for its own sake? No. Hipster in that we form independent opinions indifferent to popular consensus and clash with it because of this? Then yes.
>Why is this?
Because you get account banned for saying shit is shit. While on V, the opposite is true. People can say what ever they want, so they will only say what they can't say in other place, i.e. mostly negative comments.
Will Fallout4 suck ass? No.
Will it be an amazing GOTY? Fuck no, but everyone will play it so that must mean yes by default.
COD has never been amazing, and look at how many GOTY that shit wins.
People don't make threads to discuss things they like because the threads just get filled up with shitposters, and then people who would actually fit in with reddit due to the way they think see these opinions and join in on the shitposting trying to fit in.
>why is this
if you go against the politically correct flow on Reddit your comments are literally downvoted. Your opinions discarded.
But the one downside of complete freedom here on 4chan is it leads to very negative opinions on everything.
Every big-name game that comes out is hyped up on reddit like it will be the GOTY, and then is forgotten after a month at best. It's a combination of marketers and a completely surface level consumer base of normies.
They do? /v/ used to have great threads about Warband, Stalker, and the Witcher games but after being over run by casual console shitters those threads can't live in peace anymore. Console wars killed comfy /v/ threads
>New Vegas was considered by most people on /v/ to be a better game than Fallout 3
yeah i hate this because new vegas came after F3 so all they had to do was make F3 better which isn't hard to do when you have all the feed back off F3. if new vegas wasn't better than F3 i would be shocked, same way i'll be shocked if F4 isn't better than new vegas
Redditers are scum. That site should be taken down because all it is is a giant circlejerk site. If you say anything the circlejerk doesn't like you get censored, and if you call out mods for being racist or homophobic you get banned from the site.
There's really no point to the site other than having a place to go for other wrong people to tell you how right you are when you're wrong and starting to doubt your delusions. So it's pretty much a place where delusional people go to reinforce their delusions.
I didn't like FO3.
It was my first Fallout game and it never engaged me.
I only played NV off a fluke of being given a burned DVD with it when I bought a drive bay (chinese people do this shit apparently).
Loved NV so I went back and tried to play 3 again, giving it a better chance.
Couldn't stand the game, it felt like a bad fan-mod for New Vegas ironically.
This to be honest family member, shake my head
>4chan calls everything shit
Remember how FROM -betrayed- us because the graphics of Dark Souls 2 were subpar?
There's exhibit A-Z.
>Reddit calls nothing shit
You'll get mega downvoted and your opinion will be discarded if you go against the hivemind.
Fallout 4 will be a good game.
4chan is a decaying heap of cynicism, reddit is just a newstand that reports happy-biased info.
That's the final word.
Exactly, it's a site of people shitting themselves in excitement over a new Star Wars movie.
A series that hasn't been good since 19-fucking-80
I lost hope when you faggots keep letting people link to Reddit and defend SJW's. Seriously I saw a thread where an anon basically said they were a legit SJW from Tumblr, and you faggots did nothing
Metal Gear threads used to be pretty alright as well.
Then things happened, a bunch of new friends joined, people started to take things way too seriously, people started to spam muh big boss fujoshi-tier shit, some absolute morons started to spew that Kojima is on par with the greats of film and some other moronic shit and so on...
>Remember when one time one developer did something disappointing
>There's exhibit A-Z.
wow man, you sure have a thorough and unbiased knowledge of the board and everyone who posts here.
It's not like different opinions exist here and you've literally only cherrypicked a single one that not everyone agrees on.
More like /v/ likes to pretend above average aspects mixed with mediocre to bad aspects is shit while Reddit are casuals and are just playing the only open world rpgs they can enjoy.
/v/ is the voice of reason of the internet. We don't mindlessly fanboy every AAA game that comes out, we actually critically evaluate it and make legitimate points to prove whether it's good or not. If you can't appreciate that, you better get the fuck out of here.
Well you see Anon, a few years ago in 2011 a segment of the /v/ userbase, after the disappointments that were Mass Effect 2 and Dragon Age II, became obsessed with destroying Bioware's then upcoming MMO The Old Republic, dubbed by them TORtanic. Ever since then this obsession with hating on popular things, (reinforced by newfags joining since then thinking the point of /v/ was to destroy that which was popular) has turned /v/ into the a thing they once long ago derided: hipsters.
Sure, you can say that /v/ has always hated everything, and to a degree this has been true, at least of things that deserved it: namely games that were not S.T.A.L.K.E.R..
Why are people pretending reddit thinks Fallout looks good? If you actually read a subreddit that isn't /r/gaming you'd realise most people there think graphically it looks like shit. Cherrypicking to suit your argument is fucking pathetic.
Idk what Reddit posts you guys are seeing, one of the highest rated comments is talking about how they're disappointed by the graphics and dialog.
Why are you getting angry at something so trivial?
Remember when /v/ actually hated reddit, called out reddit faggotry every other post and actively tried to push people with the gay ass reddit mindset out? I wonder why that's not a thing anymore...
>Tweens and teenage optimists celebrating "fun" with their rose tinted glasses. Often buy into hype and viciously defend flawed things they buy so they don't feel buyer's remorse.
>Cynical, contrarian neckbeards in their mid to late 20's that have a love-hate relationship with video games, rooted in the past, unable to find games to fill the holes left by great titles years and years ago. They get bored quickly of modern releases and land up shit posting all day, 'erry day on /v/.
>A forum of subhumans, the very worst fanboys and circle jerking fucktards that like to discuss video games more than actually play them.
>Implying Witcher 3 and MGS:V threads weren't as bad.
>/v/ hates popular things!
/v/ liked civ5, batman arkham asylum, and dead space 1 on release.
>/v/ hates things that have a large budget
/v/ hates fallout 4 because it looks like shit.
>go against the reddit hivemind and everyone downboats you
>go against the /v/ hivemind and everyone calls you a shill
the generals are the sweet spot. everyone there has actually played the game and has some affection for it, so any criticism isn't just pure shitposting and memes.
just look at that webm you posted. force boring dog companion is on fire and looks like hes thinking about humping the mailman's shoes or something, not a care in the world. im going to have to mod out the dog, mod in some tree, mod in better textures, mod out forced baby and wife story and mod out the inevitable "youre a synth, harry" fucking retarded storyline just for it to be interesting.
how the fuck is it that they have such a huge team and budget and they could do any story they want and this is the retarded ass shit they came up with
>Everyone thinks it will be shit
/v/ is doing what it always does right now. It says something is shit for a long time then suddenly likes it, usually when they are right about it being shit. This happened with Amiibo, where the threads were first criticizing the poor quality of the figures. Now look at recent Fallout 4 threads and you'll be screamed at for mentioning any of its flaws, as opposed to the last threads discussing the flaws.
Also fuck these new Captchas.
Why does /v/ seemingly like disgusting shit like this now?
But it is. When journalism and feminists were threatening the purity of video games, who was it that saved the gaming industry from corruption? That's right, /v/. /v/ was the backbone behind gamergate. We've done more for the gaming industry than any other community.
/v/ having comedic material
Because you fags keep pretending there isn't a huge overlap in userbase and apparently being in denial about it still earns you cool points on /v/ or something.
And retards like this painting both user bases with completely different opinions.
Here is the fourth highest rated comment on the Fallout 4 trailer thread on /r/games.
>Is it just me, or does the graphical quality seem to be all over the place in that trailer?
If the opinions were that skewed to defending it, it wouldn't be sitting at +800.
Fuck off Reddit
That's why people like you need to get out. We hate Redditors like you. And why the fuck do you even like it to begin with?
I miss those days. /v/ needs a purge and soon
Everyone on reddit is 9 and hasn't experienced the disappointment of a bethesda game.
It will be good (/v/ is just jaded), but the level of hype would require it to be a game crafted by Hephaestus himself for it to be anything other than a disappointment.
literally everybody on r/games is shitting on it too, it's pretty funny seeing all the r/gaming tards getting freaked out because their little hugbox doesn't extend to the rest of the website.
>everyone there has actually played the game and has some affection for it
and then the attention whores, waifufags, and ERPers show up five seconds later and everything goes to shit.
>some retards actually allied themselves with reddit, feminists, and e-celebs in order to justify this retarded cause.
It was like the crusades, if the entire crusader army was made up of gay muslims.
Anyone have a link to the leaked gameplay?
I was in the fucking jungle with no decent enough internet to watch them.
Yeah man /v/ is just being contrarian when they say this looks like shit
Don't worry, when you get past your awkward, edgy 15-19 years of your life you'll realise how autistic you are and how fucking similar both sites are overall.
This, if you take the mainstream of /r/gaming as "reddits opinion" then you're a fucking moron. It's like using /b/ as the only example of 4chan.
This entire incident was a mistake.
For this website, for every other website involved, for the participants of the scandal, and generally any party involved with this mess of a "movement".
Speaking from experience of knowing personally people who browse reddit regularly, they enjoy games rather than continuously bash everything besides knew genre. This place chooses one game or genre of games and everything else is shit. Also people here actually spend time to go into threads about a game they hate and continously beat it to death since they have nothing else to do. Reddit people don't bash it as much because the people who hate it don't go to those threads or are actually playing something they enjoy.
Look guy, I just wanna fap to some muscle chicks in space marine armor
I don't. I just don't care about hating other communities anymore, even if their taste is shit. Every community is a hugbox, you just want to feel part of the hate hive mind.
They're both full of bandwagon faggots.
On Reddit if you say Fallout is shit you'll lose Karma so they don't do that
If you say it on /v/ you will get pounced on and lose your hipster card.
Both communities are dogshit (mostly /v/'s though)
>saved the gaming industry from corruption
You haven't done shit of the sort.
No matter how much you market here bethesda i'm not buying your trash
i liked fallout 3
never finished it because i didn't play it for the story
i liked fallout new vegas but thought its dlc was garbage and exploitative
i liked skyrim but not oblivion
i still think fallout 4 is gonna be bad
Anyone who says Oblivion through Skyrim was good has not played Morrowind
> who was it that saved the gaming industry from corruption?
...Nobody, video game journalism and video game feminism are worse now than they were before gg, substantially so.
The only thing GG accomplished was being a massive scapegoat for feminists to the point anita and zoe were making presentations to the UN for fuck sake.
>You people actually defend censorship and SJW's.
I've never done such a thing. Keep projecting, newfriend. I wish you luck on your epic /v/ crusade. Should ask the 1337 hacktivist group anonymoose to join you.
you can tell who is new in the thread by how much they still defend /v/
the reddit boogeyman has been going strong for like 3 fucking years, if you think it wasn't shit before that you are fully retarded
Because nobody on reddit has played video games long enough to have played a Fallout game before.
We're not just talking too green to have played 1/2 so they could see how bad 3 is by comparison, we're talking too green to have played 3.
The gist of it is people thought she was pushing SJW shit as the owner of the site and got her booted
Turns out they were completely fucking wrong, she was actually one of the few higher ups on the side that wasn't SJW and the guy that replaced her went full on crack down mode on hate speech subreddits.
It's pretty fucking funny honestly. They fucked up because she's a women and paid for it.
Bullshit e-drama between her and zoe.
That's it, and so GG jumped on that bandwagon and gave her $5000.
Luckily she made friends with zoe and never executed the game jam that she promised, thanks for the money retards.
>bethesda announces new game
>/v/ shits itself in rage and spams shrektext about why it will be shit up until it's released
>game is released, it's fun, everyone loves it, it's great
>/v/ shits itself in rage and spams shrektext about random nitpicks about how it's the worst game they've ever played
>meanwhile, everyone is actually enjoying bethesda games and having fun
is /v/ a meme?
They've been here since forever, and they won't leave anytime soon.
Neither of these would have gotten so large if people stopped paying attention to them.
I don't even browse reddit. I've been here for
tenyears, I've also hated reddit for stupid shit, I've also been part of the hive mind. I just don't care anymore. I got tired.
Optimism vs Pessimism.
Reddit is willing to overlook lapses in quality because they know the game as a whole will still be entertaining. Moderators and voting help cull the various shitposting and unreasonable pessimists, while still leaving a good amount of threads discussing the flaws.
/v/ started their assault as soon as the reveal hit, it was just a matter of finding more and more things to blow out of proportion, any valid criticism was hard to take seriously because there are so many trolls hyperbolizing everything to the point of absurdity.
The truth of the matter is that /v/ just hates everything, except Witcher 3 and New Vegas, those games are perfect.
Than fuck off.
You deserve to be permabanned.
Truth be told I wouldn't care if you came from Reddit if:
>you didn't act like blatant underage faggots
>Had no problem with censorship
>Had no problem with SJW's
>Flooded the site with shitposting because that's what you think /v/ is all about
>Stopped making off topic threads
>There hissy fits over anime girls showing their panties
>play FO3 around launch
>holy fuck this is pretty cool
>go back and play it
>some of the worst fucking gameplay, graphics, and story I've ever fucking seen in a game
Game aged worse than goldeneye
>make a post on imgur about not being hyped about fallout, citing lack of dialogue choices, skill removal, and general lack of a target audience
>use the "right" memes to blend right in
>rep is now infamous
>downvoted to fucking hell and back
>"lol how can you not like it if you haven't played it yet"
Because I don't like what they are advertising in the first place you mongoloid fuck why do I even lurk your shitty website
Enjoy your hivemind assrape and sjw brainwash.
Imgur is fucking weird, it was made by a redditor so they had a good image hosting site to rely on, and somehow it spawned it's own community that actively hates reddit, like 4chan does.
Imgurians or whatever they call themselves actually say reddit steals content from them. Fuck me.
how insecure do you have to be when an image hosting website intimidates you?
>go to leddit
>upvote funny memes
>make an account and post funny memes
>have leddit friends
i love leddit
Currently watching a stream of it that got posted on /fog/. Say what you will about the graphics, the writing is a lot more solid this time around. That's priority number one, in my view.
it's been so long anon, four years...
4chan is where social rejects go to spout their moronic opinions, because there's no backlash for doing so in an anonymous environment. Reddit users actually have responsibility for their posts because they're using an account, and therefore put more energy into their posts. Reddit is objectively the superior website. You may be calling me a hypocrite, but I only come on 4chan because it's amusing watching all the retards running around. Reddit is where I go for intellectual discussion.
imgur is a image hosting site that is in no way affiliated with Reddit except that a redditor (which could be literally any one of millions of users) made it originally, they are their own company with their own staff, not owned in any part by reddit
the userbase also actively hates reddit. it is an image hosting site for like 95% of people that use imgur, it just has its own community too.
mfw I use Reddit at work and commuting because being able to filter content to news sources and my interests is far superior to sifting through shitposting
you don't have to ever look at the comments on reddit to find it useful you dipshits.
On what subreddits?
this is true, unless it's an Exclusive and somewhat popular Japanese thing, in which case it will be used as ammo against other consoles/pc for not having it.
Fallout 4's graphics will be lackluster, that's a fact. Probably nowhere near The Witcher 3's, but that's okay.
As long as the faces aren't potatoes like FO3 and Oblivion, I can deal with it. The game will be fun as fuck, and mods will keep it fresh for years. Customizable weapons, revamped power armor, and the ability to make your own settlement... that's what I'm hype for
/v/ is smart enough to see through marketing shills tactics where as Reddit keep falling for them.
I still remember the SWTOR threads on plebbit when they all tried to pretend TOR was good before finally realizing they had been conned while /v/ called a spade a spade from day 1
>On what subreddits?
Literally everywhere that isn't /r/fallout or /r/gaming. Over half of the current top level replies to the FO4 trailer on /r/games are either cautious optimism or outright shitting on the game graphically or otherwise.
I know what I like
And Bethesda garbage is exactly what I don't like.
Do you not remember how before FO4 was announced, practically EVERY FO3 or New Vegas thread became vs threads for the 2 games? Protip, it wasn't one-sided debating either.
>All those reddit plague spreading and shilling
Hiro, make a rule that permabans redditor scums out of 4chan please.
Without cancer, 4chan probably would be better place.
Why are we so smart /v/ros? Why can only /v/ see through the marketing that keeps trying to be pushed on our superior intellects? God it's so good being above the mainstream masses and not getting caught in hype trains like those brainless sheep.
Because everyone that thinks FO4 will be Shit don't bother posting because they know their posts will be hidden.
I'm gonna be honest, I actually don't know what reddit even looks like. I've literally never been there, I didn't even know it existed before hearing about people bitch about it here
>inb4 were you living under a rock
pretty much. 4chan and my email is basically all I did on the internet
>Hate Newspapers is kill
>Can no longer fill in the gaps by watching someone play Fallout 4 badly
This is actually a good way to look at it.
/v/ will always focus on the negatives of things. things are not celebrated on /v/, things are only vilified. It doesn't matter how good a game is, or was. It could have been better, and /v/ will tell you, in a very loud and angry voice, how it could have been.
You need to get the fuck off here right now. Reddit is nothing like 4chan. Reddit steals memes and claims it as their own. They're also a massive hugbox who will destroy and take you down if you dare say anything they don't like. So please do us all a favor and get out
I already bought FO4 and the DLC pass. On Monday night at 12:01 I am going to play it and enjoy myself.
You guys who think it will be shit can sit around and keep playing whatever shit you have been playing and buy yourself pizza for two nights with the whopping $60 you saved while I have hundreds of hours of joy.
Reddit is full of casuals. Go to /r/gaming and you'll see just how correct that is. Also, reddit have a hive mind mentality. Any conversation against the grain is considered bannable.
/v/ is full of edgy kids looking for the next big TorTanic and older anons who have seen too many shitty games that they're angry in general.
Personally, I'll take blind hate over blind love any day, because at the end of the day, the blind loyalty does more harm than good. Oblivion Was terrible. Skyrim was Terrible. Fallout 3 was average. And New Vegas was average. The only thing that makes Bethesda games good is the modding community attached to them. But the vanilla game is a piece of shit. Hell, even Skyrim with 300+ Mods was still terrible.
See a pattern?
right now, I can say that I will love playing fallout 4
will I? dunno
Do other people agree? most likely not
but they can see it, and can either react or do jack-shit about it.
Fuck you fag-enabler
also talking against the mods is against the rules.
/v/ is the general board for all videogames on the site.
meanwhile a fallout4 subreddit is specifically geared towards people wanting, you guessed it, Fallout 4.
Also due to reddits upvote system you are much more prone to circle-jerking. While /v/ has its fair share, you also get many circles all jerking into one shitty pool that ends up being the boards main population.
Meanwhile due to posts being jerked to the top, thats what most people will see. You actively have to go out of your way to read unpopular or less popular posts on reddit. This means people who disagree just leave due to "all those fangays" and then find somewhere else to post since they cannot voice their opinions and be noticed.
Lol feck off mate. We dont need a voting system here so this place can become another fking hugbox like reddit
any negativity there is instantly hidden and to further make matters worse you get fucked in the arse by posting limits once you get downvoted a certain ammount of times. eventually you will be blocked from posting at all "Your posts haven't been doing to well recently"
Reddit is a cespool of faghags who likes to suck each others dicks into a huge circle jerk.
Reddit is a hugbox m8, only smaller gaming subreddits (less than 100k subs) have bad criticism
Kiss my hairy ass mate, 4chan and Reddit share 50% of their populations, the remaining 50% either don't give a shit, or cry about how bad the other site is for dumb fuck reasons.
You really don't know shit about reddit then, I see equal amounts negativity and optimism, the fact that the one reason people on 4chan bitch about reddit is completely fucking false really shows that the hatred between both sites is fucking retarded.
The only reason reddit is considered a "hugbox" is because you can't shitpost freely, 4chan clings to it's shitposting like gun nuts do the second amendment.
>At Reddit, most people are optimists with an outwardly "upbeat" or "happy" personality. They don't anticipate to be cheated or mislead because they naturally see the good in people
Wait, why am I hanging out here then? That describes me to a T irl.
It's not. For every other anon posting their assertion, there's usually a disparaging reply. The quality of the post and reply vary, of course, but the fact still stands there is divisiveness. With Reddit, the system of up-voting and down-voting tends to silence those whose belief doesn't coincide with the mass consensus. If that isn't a hive mind, I don't know what is.
>Fear of being attacked
>on an anonymous chinese basket-weaving aficionado website
>what will I do when someone I dont know attacks an idea rather than a person because im also anonymous
No mate, you fuck off, you and every other idiot who parrots this nonsense. 4chan and Reddit have always been exactly the same, switch voting for shitposting, circlejerks for memes.
Get the fuck over it you big crybaby.
What you need to do:
Burn yourself with gasoline and zippo.
>all those graphical glitches that will NEVER be fixed
>flaming dog doesn't even give a fuck
wow i might not even pirate it
Not true at all. They're nothing the same. Everyone on reddit has a alias and "score"
they're all trying to one up each other by sucking each others dicks off till that sweet upvote cum shoots into their accounts.
Its like a meta game. They're all being little faghags to see who can actually get the highest score.
Over on 4chens. Its totally opposite. no one has a persona and no one cares what kind of "reaction" positive or negative you get via some point gains system
Couple that with their gold users bull shit and those losers are nutting so hard trying to get a piece of that "guilded pie"
Reddit can fuck off for all I care. I wish the site would shut down pronto.
learn another language
no joke, one usually builds his way of speaking trough his state of mind, so when you learned to talk as a kid you were probably in happier times.
Happens to me to, when I talk to spanish people they respond as if I were charismatic, but when I speak english I get off as fucking rude
>ask if I'm going to take a day off to play it
Whats the deal with this normie meme? I would fucking fire their asses if they took the day off to play a video game and a shitty one at that.
Gamergate killed /v/. It brought in people who hated 4chan just to 'troll' 4chan to try and attack those evil ggers. Eventually they were converted to actual users and you get this reddit tier site that it is today. And even if the gg people were retarded autismos they were at least classic 4chan retarded autismos. So they left and basically 4chan became the ship of theseus.
>post thread on 4chan
>either ignored or first page, depending if what I post is bait/impressive/interesting
>post thread/comment on reddit
>if not appeasing the week's popular opinion, nobody even knows I posted
I didn't care much for 3 or NV and while I do think some of the new stuff could be cool like building your house and such I also think the gimped dialogue options are retarded and the majority of the game (as in the part where you walk around and shoot stuff) is probably going to be every bit as shitty as it was in 3 and NV so you'll be spending 99 hours doing lame ass combat per hour of actual good content just like in 3, NV, Oblivion and Skyrim.
I can't tell, but it almost sounds like you're telling me to become more cynical by learning another language. But that didn't happen to me, I learned Jap to play import vidya and all it did was make me see things from their point of view. I find that to be the opposite of cynicism.
That doesn't mean you have to take the opposite approache and assume people will stab you in the back. Most people simply just try to live their lives the best they can without making trouble for others, it's our nature.
Reddit has shit taste. /v/ is too critical, most of the time. There's only a middle ground if you don't talk to a community and talk to actual individuals.
FO4 will be shit with all the video evidence.
>/v/ has always been like this
You are either mentally retarded or delusional enough to pretend you aren't a newfag if you seriously believe this. Fuck you, you double nigger. How pathetic do you have to be to spout such blatantly wrong shit under the guise of being an oldfag.
Is this what you redditors keep telling yourselves to pat yourselves on the back? I know that you found this place through r/4chan and all but really, you aren't going to achieve anything here, redditor.
I have never been on /r/4chan, I got into 4chan because a friend of mine was on it, now we both browse both websites and talk about how they are pretty much the same site through different formats.
>Being distrustful doesn't mean you always try to preemptively strike.
That isn't what I said, I was saying that this place is too much of the opposite and assumes everyone is a bastard.
it's almost like they're both shit.
Just 4chan is less shit because you post anonymously and aren't forbidden from making threads or popularly hated for an opinion because of anonymity
didn't Reddit killed a guy that was an innocent suspect in the boston bombings?
I do remember /v/ being a lot more harsh a few years back. If you said anything even remotely retarded you were flooded with comments so seething and vitriolic that I'm pretty sure they'd be qualified as verbal ass poundage.
It's sort of still like this now but I do believe the influx of reddit has softened it up to a tremendous degree.
/v/ nowadays is like Judge Dredd on anti-depressants. Yeah, he'll fuck your shit up but he doesn't have that edge he used to.
It needed chemo for a different type of cancer. The type of cancer that it had before was like a small melanoma or something. Now it's full blown rectal cancer that's metastasized.
spoonfeed me please I am curious, the narrative I and the other anon heard was that she was cracking down on hate speech or some shit and tried to use Reddit to fund her husbands reparations for his ponzi scheme where he skimmed the retirement funds of firefighters.
Some of us can't be assed to expect good things after numerous bad things so save the trouble of feeling disappointed and cheated
It's better to assume the worst and base expectations off fact rather than blind, uncertain hope
Anyone whio think reddit and 4chan are ANYWHERE close to the same just take a look at this thread, now imagine it on reddit. Half of these replies would be invisible because they would be downvoted to hell. It doesn't matter which half, but half.
You are delusional if you think the sites are similar at all. And you are probably mentally retarded already if you think that way. They are fundamentally different that support completely opposing ideological formats.
Nah actually what happened was that reddit hired her to quell the masses, she was against censorship and when the leeks came out. it shown that she was trying to stop most of it.
Well reddit as usually got into a harry carey mode and just went full retad on her ass. demanding they fire her. so a NEW MAN could step up.
NEW MAN comes in ,. hes actually the one who was pushing for safe space bull shit and banning users etc etc..
turns out. reddit wrong as always.
But no guyze, reddit and 4chan are totally the same I swear!
Anyway has everyone preordered the game of the week? We corporate shills are doing a very hard work to keep hype afloat and protecting each other with the easily exploitable voting system to craft an artificial sense of consensus! And we just know you're not going to actually say out loud that the Emperor is actually naked, right? You don't want to get downvoted, huh?
Also here is this thing that you can cling on to start making your little chain combo of shitty mini stand-ups, and don't forget to spin things around until every single negative forcefully turns into a positive thing unless the hivemind tells you so lol!
Now here is the wave of facebook emoticons and some face-value uninformed normie opinions!
EDIT 1: Grammar
EDIT 2: Wow I didn't expect this to blow up the way it did! Well can I say, just RIP my inbox lol!
EDIT 3: Wow my first reddit gold! Thanks for popping my gold cherry, mister nice stranger! ;)
one is full of autists that played too many video games as a child that hates seeing their childhood molested
And the other is people that only play to be apart of the gamer culture.
Remember a rag tag group of virgins beat a heavily recruited and trained Reddit team
You just buy the things you like and don't buy the things you don't, it isn't difficult.
That's a biased view if ever I've seen one.
I look at it like this, on 4chan, there's barely any moderation, and no identities, which means people are more honest, but it attracts shitposters, trolls and attention seekers like the plague.
Reddit is more organised and tries to keep a semblance of order, the voting system is both good and bad in equal measure, and the moderation can be great or terrible on different days. Overall the site is more friendly, and so long as you don't act like a cunt, your opinions will be discussed fairly.
Neither site is shit, they're both doing the same basic thing in different ways, and the whole rivalry between the two is fucking stupid. It's like the rivalry between Sony and Microsoft fans, they feel the need to hate the other because they chose one and they chose the other, and take any difference as an objective negative and they are clearly superior for cherry picked reason number 1.
Fuck the whole Reddit vs 4chan thing, it's stupid, and anyone participating in it is fucking stupid too.
Isn't 4chan constantly baiting people to commit suicide? successfully on occasion?
>the voting system is both good and bad in equal measure
Wrong. Voting is never good especially when it devolves into the tyranny of the majority with no one to determine the quality of the voter itself.
It's just people redditors who come to here after they've heard about the place there and since they are well known to think they are the ultimate shit with their inflated egos, they feel the need to defend themselves preemptively by trying to hamfist that the two places are just like each other, when in reality they look absolutely nothing alike.
>so long as you don't act like a cunt, your opinions will be discussed fairly
Are you serious? Try going into ANY fallout 4 thread on the frontpage and saying anything remotely negative about the game and come back and post results.
>formatting in reddit is better
then go there and stay there, because I can't read that site for jack-shit
>barely any moderation
stoping the funposting takes time and analyzing, unlike reddit where you get banned for being mean.
>the whole reddit vs 4chan is stupid.
no, reddit is stupid, because 100 people telling the a single one that is wrong is not a good system. Galileous paid for that shit.
Also, if trolls and attention seekers bother you, then stay away from here, because you're obviously so new that you actually read every post and are bothered by words on a screen.
Also kill yourself
you replied to both my posts :´)
What a retarded piece of failed logic. Voting with your wallet is the biggest fallacy aside from the righteousness of the invisible hand of the market. "Not buying" something doesn't count as a negative point towards their establishment, it's just an absence of an action, a void, nothing. Now actually buying something is a direct support of it.
People are more often than not naive, prey to aggressive marketing, uninformed and lacking of good criticism skills, not to mention the large group of those who simply don't give any fucks and are just in for themselves. And as long as these people are around, anything will take off. It's just a matter of lubbing up your asshole nice and smooth until you start taking a bigger cock each time.
This industry, more than than any other, is living proof of this very fact.
So no, that does not address the issue in the slightest.
Not the guy you were talking to by the way.
>Having no voting is never good especially when there is no moderation to help cull low quality troll posts.
No. You are a grown adult with common sense. Fucking use it to cull the troll post yourself. See a really low quality one? Report it. If not ignore it. Do you really need mods and votes to help think for you?
Because it directly ties into what I believe. I only buy things I know I like. It has nothing to do with the opinions of others because quite honestly I don't take stock in them anyway.
> think YOU need to try going to any Fallout 4 thread
I've been posting in them for nearly a week and receive nothing but downvotes and 'facts' stating how perfect fallout 3 and skyrim are
So go fuck yourself, reddit is a place for fanboys
I can read both sites fine anon, anyone who can't is either an idiot or just won't spend enough time there to learn a new format.
You get banned for being a cunt, I'll agree that some mods are overzealous with their banning, I got banned for calling a guy an asshole once, fucking hilarious. It's to help prevent what you see here where half the responses disagreeing with something include the words autist, shill or retard.
Everywhere is stupid, the internet is stupid, the world is stupid, you're stupid, i'm stupid, in the end it doesn't fucking matter. People go on whatever site they want, say what they want and deal with whatever dumb format the site has. Just like brand wars, site wars are the dumbest of the dumb.
I would have know it was you twice if this site had any kind of ID system, fucking hell.
The things you like will cease to be under that false sense of protection from this flawed logic, just like complete games and true expansions are now a thing of an almost distant past, hence why some see the need to be vocal about certain matters.
THE INTERNET IS A PLACE FOR FANBOYS YOU DUMB FUCK! EVERYONE IS A FANBOY FOR SOMETHING! EVEN YOU! EVERY FUCKTARD WHO POSTS ON /V/ ABOUT LE'GRAPHICS AND LE'SJW'S!
Kill yourself you dumb shit.
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in guerrilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.
(NOT SORRY NOT SORRY ONE BIT)
"Everyone who never played a Fallout game before are disappointed and the real fans see the big improvement"
These fucking comments jesus christ.
Always a good sign to detect a redditor
>4chan is only for shitposting and memes :^)
>Everyone uses reddit you shitlord :^)
Reddit kikes will project their faggotry on the rest of /v/ and assume they're running the show
The only one I agree with is the top comment
"Density > Map size
Just cause 2 might be big, but there is fuck all to do in most of that area"
He's right, most of it is just random encounters between the towns.
HAHAHAHAAHAHAHA NICE FUCKING ANIMAL MEEM YOU FAGGOT! >>315592193
-The animations are terrible
-There are bugs everywhere
-The voice acting is poor
-The level of detail for many objects is low
-The map is small and covered by a lot of water
-The number of dialogue options is small
Why would anyone buy this?
>Our son has no culture
>His appetite for generic tripe knows no bounds
>There isn't enough Halo
>There will never be enough Halo
>For our son
I'm not just referring to the dialogue, although the lines they gave to the MC and the characters I saw in the stream were a hell of a lot more competent than what I remember from 3. That being said, I am still disappointed with the system itself.
Different opinions DO exist and they're lost in the shuffle. You're blind if you can't see that most posts are just straight up shit with no bearing in objectivity. If i were to agree that his post was cherry picked, Reddit is cherry picked too. I've seen people have legit page long discussions about how morrowind was the best TES game and how the whole series is dumbed down and fallout is getting the same treatment without downvotes erasing one side's opinion..
Oblivion > Fallout 3 > Skyrim > Fallout 4?
Order of release = order of quality with Bethesda; even if you didn't like Oblivion you should be able to admit the writing is better by an order of magnitude than fallout 3 (where killing edgy raiders who drink blood makes you fail a quest and turns a town that asked you to kill them against you)
Why does Bethesda consistently get worse over time though?
Waiting for the first move
Salesmen and their bad lies
Waiting for the last move
Soaking up our leftover cash
Shills are never sleeping
Dead ones and the living
Their shitposting's spilling down
The shills must stick together
We will never be rid of these shills
But I hope Todd lives forever
And they know just what we do
We pre-order in the night
They're waiting to make their moves
BUT THE SHILLS ARE OUT TONIGHT
>fallout has tons of bugs and glitches
>its fucking shit 0/10
>stalker has tons of bugs and glitches and even more than fallout
>10/10 BEST GAME EVER
nah man you can watch the map and writing complexity drop from each game to the next; morrowind to oblivion the voice acting made it drop by default but there was no excuse for the simpler dungeons in oblivion
Fallout 3 is the outlyer for map complexity because the metro area is ridiculous and the rest of the dungeons are at least in line with oblivion but it also had significantly worse writing than oblivion.
Skyrim was a MASSIVE dive in map quality from oblivion/fallout 3 and the writing was about in line with the terribleness that fallout 3 was already at
From this we can assume Fallout 4 will be a shit
Let's be honest, has any recent big named game that came out in the past two to three years lived up to your expectations? Not even expectations just simply being the game you wanted? I've bought like 3 or 4 games since like 2013 maybe 2012. Everything just looks like ass.
Because the truth lies somewhere in the middle.
It's not the heaping pile of garbage that /v/ contrarians are hoping for it to be and it wont be better than New Vegas in terms of roleplaying.
>Oblivion was bad
>The TES game with the best quests, music, characters, modding scene, Nehrim,
and memeswas bad
i can tell ur not from reddit haha
>/v/ is now considered contrarian
There's so many fucking people here I don't know how that's even possible. Isn't /v/ like the biggest discussion area of video games online?
>>/v/ is now considered contrarian
I remember /v/ having fun with vanilla skyrim for a hot minute before the le arrow to the knee meme took off and the board collectively began shitting on the game because casuals were enjoying it.
thats your opinion man and you're entitled to it but personally I think there's a viewable quantifiable drop in the quality of writing, dungeons, towns and NPCs and world flavour
Morrowind > Oblivion > Fallout 3 = Skyrim (already at rock bottom by Fallout 3)
Morrowind = Fallout 3 (entirely on the merits of the metro; dungeons outside the DC centre were meh as fuck) > Oblivion > POWER GAP > Skyrim
Morrowind > Oblivion > Fallout 3 > Skyrim
Morrowind > Fallout 3 (because it's a borrowed setting; but I'd say they raped it much more than Oblivion vs Morrowind quality drop) > Oblivion > Skyrim
Well Skyrim is fun for a few minutes until you realize the entire game is fetch quests. I don't really think that's a /v/ opinion, that's a anyone who has played the game for more than 10 hours opinion.
>Go to Leddit
>Everyone thinks Fallout 4 will be amazing
You must be visiting some other leddit. All I see is complains and anger.

Geez I hope picking sides in this game won't be as black and white as it was in Fallout 3...

Those mouth animations DO look like butt, though.

Fallout 4 has stopped working
''Oh Bethesda, i love you.''
Well, yeah I think so. For size I mean, look at the number of the post right above yours. In just a minute, almost a hundred posts were made. Though the reddit gaming board boasts about having 8 million users, but I don`t know enough about that board to judge it.
This is disingenious, everyone who played Skyrim for the first time back in 2011 was blown away. The game really shows it`s shortcomings the more you play it.
Because /v/ likes to shitpost constantly about how bad it will be just so they can get meme points. Fallout 4 is one of those areas that show that Leddit is actually better then 4chan because even Reddit has people who rationally criticize Fallout 4, pointing out flaws and pros, instead of just looking at "MUH GRAPHICZ!" and then sperging out about how the whole game is ruined.
How about everyone just stop complaining about the game and move on with your lives? Sound good? I think so.
>How about everyone just stop complaining about the game
Uh huh, I'm sure
No one is falling for it ledditor
>Reddit is basically 4chan
>voting system to weed out cancer.
