I need your help /v/
I refuse to buy games that break these rules:
no day one dlc
no pre-order bonuses/exclusives
no meddling in reviews
no DRM similar to uplay

im also against pirating (hurr durr whatever, dont make the thread about this)

because of this i dont have anything to play, what are some games you guys recommend?

For PC only please

Enjoy your indie games. That's all you have left.

What about early access games OP?
>>
Your standards are too high for this industry, OP. Video games have passed you by.

By no DRM similar to Uplay do you still allow for Steam?

im wary but not completely turn-off by them, i mentioned how i was interested in the forest but im not sure if its worth the price in its current state

Find a new hobby because gaming is only going to get worse and no amount of boycotting on your part can save it now.

Oh god I actually may have a game for you. Valkyria Chronicles. It's good if you aren't anti-animu art style.

It's a port of an old game to PC which is why they didn't mess with any ridiculous shit like day 1 DLC or preorder exclusives
>>
>against pirating
fag

>>272976365
definitely worth $30. Just make sure you actually try to meet people, it's not a first person shooter (or it's not enjoyable if you play it like one)
>>
>>272976383
Also, POSTAL 2, Mafia (the original from 2003).

>>272976365
I don't understand how people could stand going evil route in that game
>>
>>272972664
You have two options.

Either 1) Play with yourself or 2) Accept some of these evils and enjoy vidya, or play none at all and stop complaining about muh superior tastes.

Maybe he wouldn't like most of the games which are evil anyway. I mean look at so many of them. Ass Greed. Cawwadooty. Dattlefield, etc. Not necessarily fun for everyone.
>>
>>272976867
vehicles and new game engine are guaranteed by the end of the year. New features, weapons, cannibalism, active & growing player scene.
>>
>>272972664

Honestly anon, lower your standards. When it comes to Day 1/Preorder DLC, just wait until the game gets cheap enough to buy the DLC and the game for what the game cost at release (or cheaper, I usually don't get games for about a year since I usually won't spend more than $20 on anything.) That way you've spent no additional money and the publisher loses out on first-week sales which are the most important.

UPlay really isn't that bad. I agree, I don't like more DRM than just Steam but for some games it's worth it. The minor inconvenience is worth it to play Far Cry/Blood Dragon for $10 together.

blood dragon was rad though, first and only time i used uplay- ive forgotten the password now

>>272979254

This is actually a fairly good point. How can you play a F2P game which is designed almost entirely around selling DLC?

>>272979235

Yup. ACIV is also great on PC and both can be had cheap enough to get around the inconvenienve of UPlay.

Play old games, OP. There's still a wealth of games out there you probably haven't tried from the past.

people say stalker shadows of cherrynoble is good, but every time i try an old game i cant get into it- dark messiah is an example
>>
>>272979559

I get that but you can get it on sale in the $10 range. At that point, the DLC issues go out the window. The only remaining hurdle is UPlay and it's really not a big impact. I get the principle but you're denying yourself a good experience for...what exactly?

>>272980019

Well anon, I can't argue with some fucked up sense of justice or whatever. All I can say is that you're making life hard for yourself by making all these rules. You can deny them the crucial initial sales, save yourself $15-20 bucks and use that to buy the DLC they intended to be a cherry on top for a sum that comes out to the same as buying new. That should help you in justifying the day one DLC by essentially not buying it separately.

The UPlay thing I can't help with. It's not a terrible service but yeah, it's an annoying extra layer. At super low prices though, eventually it's better to cave in and consider that at least you're not bound to a console instead which, in my opinion, is a much worse form of "DRM." Plus it's usually more expensive on consoles.
