>That game you really wanted to like but just couldn't bring yourself to.
What's her name, /v/?
How about that game I really liked but couldn't get into?
Stronghold. I remember watching my big bro play it for hours every day and talking about strategies with him. Then when he was at school I'd try to imitate them on easy and I still got rekd.
DOTA/ASSFAGGOTS in general.
Way too much time to invest in them. Games take too long. Community is terrible. Have no friends in general so the best part is squandered.
Gameplay looks complex and potentially fun but there are just too many drawbacks for me to give a fuck.
God hand. I like the combat, Gene is cool and the music is good, but I just can't
Fuck you moot that's not the pic I posted
The original Devil May Cry.
I don't know why I forced myself to complete it, it never got good.
Is 3 even good? I didn't like 1, and 2 seems kinda boring. If I force myself through 2 will I even like 3?
I'll play some more, I really want to enjoy the game
When Dear Esther came out everyone was raving about what an incredible emotional journey it was, saying "it's more than a game, it's an experience" (actual quote from a review from one of my steam friends at the time)
I geared up for something life-changing but instead got the gaming equivalent of standing in a museum for 45 minutes staring at a blank canvas while several guys whisper "too deep for you" in your ear the whole time
Any nintendo game, from the SNES up to the Wii U. I enjoy a few SNES RPGs, but anything else, no. In particular Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong Country, and Smash. I play for a while, humor my friends that like it, then I always end up saying to myself, "this shit is made to keep little kids busy and is incredibly simple, why am I still playing it?", I even realized that when I was really young. I'm convinced a lot of nintendo fans confuse color and innocence for fun. The only nintendo games I like are Metroid and Mario Kart, and the former is dead and the latter is the same game repackaged since the gamecube days and is only fun with friends.
I have wanted to get that off my chest for so fucking long. I have absolutely no idea why /v/ has such a boner for nintendo,
Kind of this for me. When I was unemployed for quite a while I played the fuck out of it and had some good forts going.
With a job and shit I don't have time for that. However, anon, you should try to get into Adventure Mode. It doesn't take much to learn and you get to enjoy all the crazy shit that Dorf Fort can provide in small amounts of time. Just as fun.
Because some of us are the opposite. Complicated games or open world games bore me. I always have fun platforming and stupid shit like Mario kart and what have you. A lot of people do. Different tastes brah.
I read books too, I don't get pissy because people like low tier books/ I'm just happy they enjoy reading.
For me the Witchers have been the type of game that's boring the first time you play it, but if you try it out once more on a rainy day you'll most likely end up beating it in one sitting.
I just couldn't. I couldn't fucking invest myself in that world. I got to Vivec and gave up like an hour later. There was just nothing in the gameplay or the game's universe for me to give a fuck about.
Nier. I'm sorry, it's just total shit. The gameplay is awful, and the story isn't enough to carry itself unless you're completely alienated from other mediums like film and literature.
God damn I was so disappointed
Dragon Age Origins
I don't hate it or think it's legit bad, but for some reason I was just so unbelievably bored by it, like I couldn't play for ten minutes without losing all possible interest. It's never happened with any other game, and it's a shame since I had the most fun role-playing in it than any other game.
If I played it when I was 5 or 6, I probably would have loved it, but I played it much later than the rest. It has the exact same problems that all the other nintendo games I can't enjoy have.
There's no VAC in the game. The fact that you worry about it in the first place makes me think you're a dirty cheater. I agree that Soul Memory is a broken mechanic too but limited respawns is just a preference and not a big issue if you git gud.
I get that, I'd never say that nintendo games are bad because I recognize they are well designed and I'm not the target demo anymore, but when people say shit like "ONLY NINTENDO MAKES FUN GAMES", it fucking infuriates me. There are so many other developers that make games like nintendo and do it so much better, yet nintendo gets a free card just because they're nintendo. They don't deserve to have survived past the 90s, but that's just my opinion.
>Lords of Shadow
I actually saw potential in it at first, but the more I played, the less and less I saw it live up to that potential, resulting in me becoming less and less interested in playing. By the time I beat Satan, I no longer gave a shit about the game.
DotA and LoL, I have a lot of friends that play them and I liked all the arena mods on WC3 but I just can't get into them anymore.
Dragon's Dogma and Red Dead Revolver too, but just because of the framerate problems.
More suited for /tg/ but whatever.
>Love all the stories about DnD and the whole fantasy deal.
>Read up the rules, enjoy the fuck out of the idea of crafting a world with all the pieces already set up.
>Too full of social anxiety to go out and meet people for the sole purpose of learning tabletop.
>Ask friends if they want to try it.
>Figured since they were already playing the LOTR version of warhammer it wouldn't be that much of a stretch.
>"Nah brah, that'd be too boring with all the numbers and dice rolls and shit."
>'But dont you do that already with warhammer?'
>"We just use the HP numbers, roll the same set of dice for everything and otherwise just collect the models."
Cant exactly fault them for that, but holy shit did i want to strangle them for a minute.
Fallout 3, I bought it on a steam sale thinking it was an immersive atmosphere heavy game, kind of like the STALKER games.
The movement was like controlling a robot, the animations were god damned terrible, walk cycles in particular, the way every NPC would never break eye contact, and melle was like fighting with nerf bats on roller blades.
I wanted to like this game so much but I just couldn't.
Demons' Souls. It's a good game, and seems like something I should like. I just wasn't having fun with it though. I kept wishing I was playing a King's Field or Shadow Tower game instead.
Skyrim. I see my fiance play it as literally the only game they'll play and tried it myself, and yeah, it's cool and all but I am just nowhere near as engrossed as both she and my best friend seem to be.
I dont even dislike it. Just get bored whenever I'm playing it and I don't know why.
>Way too much time to invest in them.
Games take too long.
Only if you suck
Community is terrible.
Only when you play with BR or Russians
Have no friends in general so the best
part is squandered.
How can someone be friendless like have non at all do you just not do anything but sit in your room all day?
Don't forget the LOL story. Also
All i heard was praise for that game so i bought it on a sale. It was okay, but it was a became kind of a chore to finish. The characters, story, setting, voice acting and combat was all pretty boring in my personal and most humblest of opinions. And sitting through 20 seconds of wait time to open a menu, drink some elixirs, wait for the animation and close the menu again got tedious real quick.
maybe witcher 3 will be more interesting.
I never got very far in the game i think I have maybe 2 hours in it total.
The real kick in the balls was that I had recently completed STALKER SoC with AMk on veteran, and I was hungry for something similar.
It was just.. nothing.
Like the whole game is just so easy and mindless. You dont need to use any of those items that you find at all.
And holy fuck THE TALKING. The characters never shut the fuck up and someone was always around the corner to say "OH HEY ANON FANCY SEEING YOU HERE! WANT SOME NON SUBTLE HINT ON WHERE TO OBVIOUSLY GO NEXT?"
How can people play this series for 20 years and STILL like it is beyond me
This piece of shit. I've always been a die-hard Zelda fan, but goddamn it this game fucking sucks. It's unbearably horrible. It took me years of on and off playing to even beat it.
I really want to like CK2, but I
never got anything interesting to happen so I kinda feel something is wrong and stop playing.
At least EUIV is more warfare based so I have a clear clue what I should be doing, but in CK2 I feel completely lost on what I should be doing.
Every time I boot I play it for about an hour without having a clue what to do and I quit.
Maybe I'm just too used to capture land by sword and guns whereas CK2 is supposedly based on inheritance or something.
I wanted to get hyped for Witcher 3 and tried playing Witcher 2 but god damn the combat just seems so mediocre. I keep trying to pick it up and continue but I just can't. I'm bored out of my mind.
My problem with Planescape Torment, was in my expectations. I own every manual of AD&D Planescape and I love Diterlizzi's art. So then I buy the game expecting it to look like that art (stupid I know). What I got looked so sterile in comparison to the original art from the books.
That was a real turn-off right there.
Tried to play the game regardless, but I just couldn't get in to it now that my precious expectations hadn't been met.
Morale of the story: don't expect shit.
They used to, but they closed down about 2 years ago and the only other one that i'm aware of is about 40 minutes away by train.
I'm more likely to use that Roll20 thing once i can get a group of Internet chucklefucks who want to give it a go.
GTA V, I never played a gta game in my life. Everyone was shitting their dicks over it, so on my best friend's advice I tried it. It's so fucking boring, I got five hours into it and I'm just mindlessly bored with myself. It's so stupid, the only worthwhile thing about it is Trevor for the rare shit and giggle moment. It's trash man, I don't know how anybody likes this shit.
it boils down to if you can tolerate the combat system. It's good and bad at the same time.
Geralt controls snappy enough but when you can only hit a guy one or two times before rolling away to avoid being one shot by some other guy, it gets to be a pain in the balls
Op here. I feel the same about the Witcher games. I feel like they have potential but whatever ideas the devs had just aren't executed that well.
CDPR seems like a good company though, so I'll reserve judgment on Witcher 3.
Try CK2. It's easier to get into and better overall in my opinion (or more fun at least)
Just a warning, it is fucking miserable at first. The tutorials are shit, they're tedious, and they're prone to just fucking breaking and ceasing to work at all. But once you actually figure out what you're doing, it's amazing.

Yeah I think I hyped mysef up too far after hearing about it being the greatest RPG ever, got as far as the dead legion and I quit, watching a playthrough now on youtube just so I dont have to deal with the terrible gameplay, it doesn;t look half bad modded, still though its a very bland game to me at least
Playing overhauled morrowind now and its bretty gud
I want to get into The Witcher 2, I really do, but in combination with the gameplay and how slow the game feels, I just can't do it.
It just feels like a thousand corridors hidden with invisible walls and nice scenery, with loads of random quests I care nothing for in the first village. And that stealth tutorial, fuck that.
>Persona 4 Arena
Dear god this game handles so awkwardly. It might be because of the auto combo system or how the Persona's handle, but it's so awkward to control for me that it utterly kills it.
Hate fighting games, difficulty of input is something they actually appreciate, that kind of retarded shit would never fly in another genre, imagine if you were playing an FPS and one gun was overpowered but it's ok because it requires 3 full circles + shoot + throw grenade + Melee to fire.
The most infuriating is alpha pat from soul calibur his move set is basicaly broken the only thing that keeps him "balanced" is fuck impossible inputs on his basic and essential moves.
I love the gameplay, the graphics are horrible but I don't care about that, the inventory system is a mess but I can stand it and the pawns keep saying shit but I can tolerate it.
But my god the fucking endless walks, why is there not a fucking fast travel option. I bought in October and I got to Gran Soren last week. Not even fast travel, a fucking horse, give me a fucking horse.
GTA series. I played 4 and I got really bored of it after running around and killing niggers for about 5 minutes. Most fun I had was playing the game the "good" way. Driving safe, stopping at red lights, not hurting people outside of missions.
Still got very boring.
>>253356451 here, and what the hell are you talking about? EUIV is so simple to get into, because there is pretty much only a few things to look after. You can get into it pretty much by starting the game and exploring some menus. CK2 in my opinion is much harder to get into, and requires much more devotion to understand.
dark souls 2. i tried my hardest to like is and realized that it was
>fighting multiple bosses: the game
>poison arrows: the game
>2hard4you: the game (they tried too hard to make it hard)
it just disappointed me further and further
It was exactly what somebody said, a game about nothing. You go out, find shit, do some typical rpg quests, alchemizew stuff and that's it. Yes I read the reviews and watched the few threads that people make
It has some decent characters but the problems is that the game's too slow for me. This comes from a guy who played
Minecraft for 12 hours a day
>Noting quite "clicks" right in my mind and everything feels off.
It's a console. It does its job. What do you want?
If you mean the library specifically, then it just doesn't have a killer app for you personally yet. Should have waited/you should wait before you buy one if so.
it wasn't 2hard4me, it was too tedious. the best thing Dark Souls does is teach the player how to play the game, and rewards them for learning. DaS2 shits all over that in an effort to make the game seem more difficult
Dark Souls. Great combat and atmosphere. Absolutely crushing difficulty. I last played 2-3 weeks ago and I'm stuck on this boss. Will probably never finish this game.
I think Warband is fun, but it just gets old incredibly fast. When I bought it I played it for about 10 hours that first day, but since then I've only ever been able to play it in like 30 minute increments.
You're probably 1/50th through the game, maybe less.
You have no idea what that game is truly like if you think the bell gargoyles are tough. You seriously suck at games and pattern recognition if you can't even beat those things.
Wouldn't say that. I got through the game in about 20 hours on my first run and only had to retry only a few bosses.
For some fucking reason I had problems with Lost Sinner on my first playthrough and in NG+ where she had helpers I breezed through her.
Just grind a little and make yourself reach an attack level where it only takes 8 or so hits to kill the beast, it doesn't take that long to reach that level. I recommend using the halberd since it's really powerful for its speed and length. Also having a light crossbow on your left hand is useful, shoot at the gargoyle when there is only 1 left and it is standing still breathing fire.
Fucking Demon Gaze. I like the gameplay, but the annoying and shallow characters just get in the way too much. I just can't bring myself to like the game, or understand all the hype around it. But this is just my opinion.
The only good game that Platinum have made is Metal Gear Rising: Revengence.
if you dont have frames down, or an understanding of i-frames at that point, Lost Sinner wrecks your shit. i made the mistake of going to lost bastille before heides tower, and knew jack shit about anything.
Read Dead Redemption. I tried. I even forced myself to play to the end.
It had it's moments but fuck I was bored 95% of the time. It wasn't necessarily bad, just.. lacking?
>System shock 2
I actually have no idea. Maybe it's that I'm not a huge fan of horror games.
To be honest I actually haven't gotten too far, but so far it's just not catching me. Also I know the whole
___cat___twist so that's also a bit discouraging.
Convince me to like one of these games, /v/.
I tried so hard to like FPS just to fit in with my friends, but I hate them. They're not fun for me. And I hate how that was pretty much the only thing they ever wanted to talk about or play. Anytime a group wants to talk about games, it's mainly about FPS. Want to play games? FPS.
Even now, I mostly play by myself, and there's always one friend that tries to get me to do co-op with them, but I get bored really quick.
I love Guilty Gear. I like fighting games, I like heavy metal, and I like animu, but I just couldn't get into it the way I could with GG; it didn't have the same charm.
I decided to give it a break and come back to it later, for the sake of a fair judgment, but by then it was already on BlazBlue CS:GO Super Calamity Fighting Arcade Edition 3.2 and I just said "fuck it."
Tager will always be my bro though.
I want to play the Witcher 2 but I can't get past the first one, it's so boring to play which sucks because the story really interests me.
>Flower Sun Rain
God damn that game is impossible to get into
It's honestly one of those games you either love, or can't understand the love..
I really like the combat and it looks great for an mmo but having such an unsociable player base kinda ruins it for me.
Maybe i should make a character on the pvp server so people have an incentive not to travel alone.
The Tom Clancy series, but only because I don't know how to play them.
I want to get into the series but I'm not sure what to do so far, I just found out for the PC port you use the mousewheel to go faster.
It feels like no matter what I do it doesn't matter in the long run.
>Want to expand cities like the computer does? Fuck you here's 10 unhappiness.
>Want luxury resources? Fuck you give me 500 gold and open borders plus one of your resources.
>Wanna be friends? Give me open borders, 400 gold due to "bad times" and I'll backstab you later.
>Rushing a wonder? Fuck you undiscovered civ built it 5 turns faster
I had a friend who never shut up about how amazing it was. I tried it one time and I had that same feel of being bored after ten minutes. I think it was the combat for me. I can't deal with just missing over and over. I might pick it up again some other time just to give it another shot though.
What's the appeal?
I mean I enjoyed the backstory segments and the stats but then the game really felt like it had clunky combat.
Is it the forming of armies that makes it fun? is the combat better for every weapon but swords? Is it the sandbox?
Warband, everyone on /v/ acts like this game is the second coming of Jesus.
The combat feels really clunky, especially after playing games like War of the Roses, War of the Vikings, and Chivalry. The game has a lot of major flaws that were immediately apparent to me and require lots of modding to fix.
I've played this game so much I can barely remember the tens of hours of frustration and fuckups from when I first started. Nowadays I can just run through the entire thing in 6 hours without dying. It really just comes down to putting enough time into the game until it clicks for you. I started and restarted this game probably about 8 times over a two-year period before I actually discovered how to play the damn thing properly, but it was definitely worth it. Keep at it, you'll have the time of your life once you get into it.
I know what you mean, the tutorial it's quite complicated if you don't know the timing on some combos, but yesterday i sat through it and beat that shit in 3 hours, not as hard as someone would imagine, it's all just timing.
If someone wants to play on xbox my GT is PavezxxD i main Filia and Big Band
>Buddy and I try out SF IV
>Instructions make no sense and we barely get any moves properly done.
Seriously, what the fuck were Capcom thinking with those bland descriptions? And no tutorials either, just a stiff npc to punch in a white training room.
The reason it's from 5/20/13 is because a patch they released broke a ton of mods and I had to download the older version and just used it instead of the Steam version.
Building Armies was fun for awhile, but there is more than that.
>Play as a Mercenary band, raiding villages, killing peasants, and get paid for it.
>Travel Calradia just doing tournaments and jobs.
>Only companion party, no recruits.
>Pick a class and play it.
>Freelancer mod to just be a soldier in someone's army.
>Put the "rightful heirs" on the throne.
>cRPG has persistent character multiplayer battles.
Honestly this game is the best $2.50 I've ever spent. It's just a really fun sandbox game.
I agree. Finished both of them and was satisfied in the end. But they aren't enjoyable playing until you finish it.
The sequels plot was so cluttered I didn't know who did what most of the time.
Usually when I play I pick a class, and backstory and go with that. Bandits who pick off weak village off villagers or caravans I like Kherjit Horse Archer. I really like the Freelancer mod though and go Swadian Knight, too bad these faggots are constantly feasting.
I gave the game a honest 4-5 months, couldn't find a main, lost interest in playing after I unlocked all unlockables. Plus the multiplayer was a fucking shitty mess where everything felt like a pillow fight. The game itself was so nerfed coming from SSb64, and Melee, that it just felt unplayable for me. I dont personally see the appeal in it.
Oh and dont even get me started on the online community, much less the online itself. Fucking absolutely horrible. I can see why the tourneyfags complain. Any problem with the engine/physics that the game has offline, is exacerbated online with how delayed everything is.
in b4 I get called tourneyfag for not circlejerking what is legitimately the worst game in the series and a stain on nintendo's game craftsmanship. The game is legitimately bad from all angles, casual, tournament, regular, with or without items. It's a poorly crafted piece of shit.
-Way to kill your game CDPR with the shittiest combat known to man. Apparently there's a mod that fixes it but god fucking damn it.
-Played it for 20 hours, got bored around the 10 hour mark and only showed the pretty to faggots in class using my y580 for the last 10. Apparently mods fix this mess of a game but fuck that shit, check this retarded shit out:
200 fucking plus mods to fix a game? Fuck that shit.
I hate to sound like a scrub but I fucking love Oblvion, I played it during a spite where my internet was down for 2 weeks and this game kept my attention. The Oblivion gates were creepy as fuck, hated the leveling though.
Deus Ex: HR
-Really liked it but I got bored near the end for some reason and never finished it, not sure if that counts.
-What a boring fucking game, I'll never understand how people sperg out about this shit.
>Play through tutorial to get a hang of the mechanics
>Picking up some kind of submachine gun
>Narrator says "Make sure to reload your clips"
-All of them. Probably doesn't help that I don't like Star Wars a series.
-Never have I felt such floaty ass controls, especially coming from P3D. Dropped that shit fast.
Wargame: Airland Battle
>Suddenly fucking cards
Dropped, like watching youtube vids about it though.
>Seems fun on youtube
>Playing it, turns out to be 4 hours hiking simulator
Boring tripe which was odd with all the love
Well, Arma 2 is really meant to be played with a good group and someone that knows how to write missions. Otherwise its boring shit. DayZ is just plain boring and there's no fixing that mess. No ACRE makes the game a shit show to play too.
>Come on pick up the controller and join me! Minecraft is REALLY fun once you get into it!
>Spend all my time digging underwater caves using my hands and expanding lava
I don't "get" this game
