Thoughts?

Was 2015 one of the best gaming years in a long time?
>>
2015 was shit. I don't know why I shouldn't just kill myself
>>
Witcher played like shit, Fallout 4 was the worst mainline Fallout by far, MGS an unfinished disappointment. Bloodborne was a playstation exclusive, but looked fun.

It was a shit year.
>>
Yeah, definitely. We had the Witcher 3 and regardless of what anyone says, it was a fantastic game which deserved GOTY and all other awards.

Honestly after having played all four of them, Bloodborne is the only one that should even be considered for GOTY, and even then if we had some actual decent AAA shit this year it shouldn't have one.

Is it a surprise to anybody that TW3 won GOTY in 2015? The lineup against them was so fucking weak, it's a wonder they even held a VGA this year.

Honestly, if you look at the AAA market, it has been getting shittier and shittier almost every year. Rather than make good games which take time, money, and actual effort, they'd rather re-hash the same shit they've been feeding us because the hordes of retarded neets who can't think for themselves actually pay for this shit.

to be honest, these games are fun for about 2 hours, and then they get boring as fuck because I realize how poorly made and lacking in content they are

it was a good year only for witcherfags.

>>322677909
Fallout was brilliant. I've put 80 hours into that game, making it my second most played of all time. Though the story wasn't as good as 3, the gameplay was the best in the series (no more relying on crappy VATS)
>>
>>322678832
These games have tons of content, which in many ways is part of the problem. Who wants to play an 80 hour game where the game mechanics are stale after five hours?

I think you've been making this thread a little too often.

I'm serious. Fallout 3 had great characters and story but meh fps mechanics. Fallout new vegas gave your character no backstory so why should you give a shit about this parcel you're supposed to deliver. Fallout 4 took the best of these 2 games and made it better.
>>
>>322679318

It still counts as being a 2016 game on PC. And it's still better than anything released last year.

I'm actually hyped as fuck for it. I can't remember the last time I felt like this about a video game, it was that long ago.

Illusion of depth. Bethesda are masters at it, it's why their games are so successful. They are designed to be extremely shallow, enough that the average casual who started playing games with the Xbox360 can enjoy it, but at the same time the open world, "role-playing" and character customization makes casuals think these games are the deepest games ever.
>>
>>322682294
Here you go.

>>322682294
To make Bethesda fans think there is some depth to the game. They are incredibly shallow, but market themselves as deep and complex to casual gamers who eat that shit up and think they're hardcore for playing Bethesda games.

No, no, that's definitely real. I'm playing through right now and that's usually how these "Choices" go
>yes with a question
>enthusiastic yes
>reluctant yes
>yes.
>>
>>322683532
Of course it's real. Those are the things your character can say in that situation.

Of course, the game doesn't present it that way. It hides it behind misleading two-word dialogue options. Often if one of the dialogue choices is sarcastic, it will just say [sarcastic]. That's it. Nothing more.

Fallout 5 will show nothing but tone. You'll be presented with four Vault boy faces each displaying a different facial expression, and your character will say something fitting that expression when you select it.
>>
As much as the shitpost circlejerk that is neo /v/ would like to proclaim 2015 as the worst year in vidya history, it really was pretty fucking great.

It felt like the year that the current gen finally came into itself. Every generation takes a bit to ramp up, and 2015 was just that. Finally getting games like TW3 that are setting new standards.

Keeping with this, and looking at the upcoming releases for 2016, I cant imagine why anyone who isnt a disgruntled neckbeard wouldnt be happy with the current gen.

You can say there was a lot of shit as much as you want, but every single gen has had tons of shit. Nostalgia is a hell of a thing.

The closest thing to a great AAA game this year is Bloodborne, a quality game yet a tired rehash. All but the most Souls-obsessed fanboys are tired of these games.

Witcher 3 didn't set any standards except for perhaps writing in open world RPGs. Their only competition is Bethesda, so they won by default.

Bioshock Infinite was less shit than TLOU.


If TLOU was a movie it would would have been the most by the numbers oscar-bait ever.
But because it's a game it's the "Citizen Kane of gaming".

At the very fucking least, Bioshock Infinite was way more creative, and was not ashamed of being a fucking video-game
>>
>>322687050
Overworld's are the antithesis of open world. Rather than have you trek through emptiness they simulate the emptiness, making each relevant area its own level accessed from but disconnected from the overworld.

As for CRPGs in the last three years, there are plenty like Pillars of Eternity, Divinity, so many that aren't open world but instead use the old hub system most WRPGs use.

I won't say that i'm not glad that W3 won so many awards. It has some good dialogues, characters and side quests and overall deserves this reward way more than DAI deserved it a year ago. But at the same time i dread to think that it will create some sort of a trend for future RPGs because W3 is fucking horrible in pretty much all gameplay aspects.

Bloodborne, a simple action rpg, has way deeper character customization, stat system and build variety than a so called "rpg of the year". I won't even compare it to actually good rpgs of 2015 like Underrail or AoD. Holy shit CDPR really needs to pay at least some attention to the actual fucking gameplay.

They were interesting in W1 because they required a real prep time and monsters felt legit horrifying. In W3 even on death march the same feeling of danger is barely present.

W1 and W2 were both terrible games
>>
>>322692051
W1 actually had a good perk system with lots of shit to consider. Also with some actual alchemical tinkering where you could create stronger non-standard potions by accident.

W2 was a fucking garbage for the most part though.

why do people keep pretending the term goty means anything at all? sure, witcher 3 was a nice game but the word goty means utterly nothing.

RPG has never had an absolute set definition, and it's name is a nebulous term that simply comes from Dungeons and Dragons, which could have predesigned characters. If you define RPG as roleplaying then every game is an RPG.

Fuck off, you don't know what you're talking about.

>>322692531
Western computer RPGs actually have pretty well-defined list of features that were present in them for many years and character generation, build creation and actual stat or class system are mandatory for them. W3 lacks most of them while actual RPGs with characters who have more or less predefined background like Shadowrun reboots still keep most of them.

>>322693576
There's almost no good rpgs without a character generation or initial customization of any kind. Even fucking Nox, a game with pre-set protagonist, forced you to chose a hard-locked class which defined your entire playstyle and even story. Geralt's customization is pathetic as well as any "build" variety if i can even call W3's pathetic perk system so.

Leave this site, degenerate.
>>
>>322694623
Most RPGs with a customizable main character are absolutely shit because you can't make the story about just one person, you have to make it about an unknown which means nothing actually significant can happen involving the life of your character.

It means the player character is the blandest thing in the entire story at best. Which is bad.

It's hilarious how ASSMAD you Bloodborne faggots are. You criticize a game for having shallow characters and stats when you like fucking Bloodborne. Your entire game is literally Dark Souls with a horror skin. There is nothing deep about it.

I have no beef with Witcher 3 being the top choice, but how the fuck is MGS V and Fallout 4 above Bloodborne?

Is there any reason other than it being a PS4 exclusive, which made it a more niche release?
>>

The only hilarious thing is that you think that i'm a "bloodborne fag" when my post also mentions underrail and aod. Keep being ass shattered for no reason, preferably with your mouth shut if you don't have anything constructive to say.

mgs5, regardless of all the memes about it, had stellar gameplay
a single cut mission, vehicle, and a few strictly visual helicopters flying around motherbase do not detract from it's quality in the slightest
it also has decent online compared to most modern cookie cutter multiplayer shooters

bloodborne was more of the same grimdark puzzle story (with some ayylmao thrown in) with repetitive and nonchallenging bosses and no sense of item progression at all, only thing stellar was the music

fallout 4 was ok for what it truly is, which doesn't make it shit
