>all those DayZ knock-offs doing better than DayZ
the nature of these games is someone makes a nu flavor of the month dayz ripoff and by new i mean they put out the framework of one and charge full prices under the excuse of "early access" as if anyone is going to be still playing it by the time it's finished, if that ever really happens at all of course. Then they just migrate to the next bare bones layZ clone pile of shit as if it's something novel. Reminds me of MMO retards.
A bit confused.
Why do people play FO4?
Why do they prefer GO to 1.6?
How are they still playing Civilization: Gimped AI edition?
And why the fuck are they still playing the GOLD STANDARD OF MEDIOCRITY, Skyrim?
Rest seem normal.
This, I really hope that one of those survival games reaches such a complete level some day that it kills off the lousy competition. As long as the situation is the same as it is now (no complete games), people will grab on any new competitor.
Makes me glad that I don't have shit taste.
With all those hundreds of thousands of people, it feels like maybe there's a chance that I could do something worthwhile with my life, because certainly none of them ever will.
>Why do people play FO4?
Because it's new, and the modding scene is just starting to take hold
>Why do they prefer GO to 1.6?
Because it's a newer one, same reason there are more people playing USFIV than SF3 or ST
>How are they still playing Civilization: Gimped AI edition?
They all started games in 2010 and haven't finished them yet, also mods
>And why the fuck are they still playing the GOLD STANDARD OF MEDIOCRITY, Skyrim?
>insurgency nowhere to be seen
And to think i actually bought that game...
Was just about to post this.
Also, can anyone post the "top played" stuff from the current gen consoles? I'd love to see how they're basically just FIFA/CoD/Battlefield/Bloodborne
>how does this picture make you feel?
Just fine I guess? I mean I don't see how it could be the slightest surprise to literally anyone on /v/ who isn't a genuine retard that MOBAs remain popular and that CSGO continues to have a devoted following. Nor that a lot of AAA megastuff is consistently popular for a while either. Of course /v/ is way more niche then the norm.
So if anything I actually find a lot of pleasant surprises on that list, like Civ 5 being so high. It's far from my favorite Civ or even favorite Sid Meier game period (SMAC still remains top for me) but it's solid enough and not a casual shit affair. EU 4 and AoE II as well. There are a number of perfectly solid titles on that list, and since my default assumption would be pessimism I think it's a lot better then it could be.
Rust and ARK actually get updates
No one plays H1Z1 for survival, its base gameplay is terrible for survival but nice for a arcadey PVP game aka Battle Royale.
I have no clue why ARK is that popular though. Dinos have shit melee hit registration, bad animations that turn on a dime and clip through everything. The level system means its super grindy and not fun
ARK and Rust play exactly the same too.
At this point most of it is sales newbies with a smattering of high-level runners jumping into their games to fuck shit up or high-level Hunters looking to invade low-level games.
Also there's a big expack coming soon.
Seems right to me. First two have huge populations and are very popular in the competitive scene. Then you have the most recent AAA, flavor of the month, non multiplayer game as 3 on the list.
Bunch of unpatriotic bug lovers need a healthy dose of democratea.
Dark Souls II > MGS V
Good Job, Kojima. The fuck were you doing...
>more than twice as many people playing Skyrim than Witcher 3
Why would I ever care about what other people are doing with their free time?
There's a distinct lack of quality from PC exclusives compared to console IP's.
I don't know what it is but PC exclusive just have their own way of gameplay that is distinctly different to console games and always feel vaguely inferior for some reason.
I can't put my finger on what it is though
I am pretty sure I have never finished this webm. Whenever that shit comes out of his bellybutton or whatever I am done.
MGO isn't out. Hopefully its not garbage when its out on PC
H1Z1 BR is my super guilty pleasure. If the Arma 3 BR wasn't so awful and took forever for games to start I would play that again. Really surprised no one has taken the idea and just ran with a standalone game, except that really shitty one 100 to 1 or whatever.
>yfw damn near every game there is PC exclusive
I guess PS4 bros can play Bloodborne... again...
And XBO... they can go outside and shit.
WiiU will be playing smash bros for eternity.
Does Witcher 3 have any modding potential? Because even if its vanilla content is better than Skyrims I know I will occasionally get an itch to reinstall and mod the fuck out of it to dick around on a new character.
I love how /v/ constantly whines about the latest Bethesda game being popular on PC, when in reality they should be whining about them being popular on console where you don't get access to any of the badass mods for the game.
I'm going to freely admit that I rather enjoy Fallout 4, I like it a hell of a lot more than Skyrim and while I find many of the choices they made in regards to character customization highly questionable at the same time it doesn't really bother me nearly as much as I thought it would because at fucking least they still have SPECIAL unlike fucking Skyrim.
Would I like a more robust RPG style system? Sure, that would be great, but unfortunately I am finding it hard to mix the idea of non-turnbased FPS combat as a typical RPG. Sure you could do it like the original Deus Ex but it never gelled with me that JC Denton, a highly trained UNATCO Operative didn't know how to use at least a pistol worth a damn at the beginning of the game.
Maybe if RedKIT comes out, they have no date and haven't mentioned it in forever.
Its basically not going to get anything huge without it, just like Fallout 4 is waiting for GECK.
Makes me sad so many people still support Payday 2 after the bullshit that Overkill put everyone through.
You are missing my point.
In the real world, every single police officer and soldier is trained in the same things through basic training. It is after basic training that you get the more specialized training, in Deux Ex's terms it is after basic where JC would start putting points into computers or other skills to further specialize him.
>How are they still playing Civilization: Gimped AI edition?
i still play it despite how shallow it all is because the first 30-40 turns are so addicting regardless, and at least i don't get disgusting borders like in EU3/Vic2
>Mount and Blade
>Euro Truck Sim
>AoE2: We Wuz Edition
I feel fine
DayZ will never be done. I feel sorry for anyone who paid for it. Wasn't the "complete" version supposed to be released for consoles this coming fall?
>friend tricked me into buying DayZ
>we played it together like once
>can't refund it because I got it too long ago
I'll never forget this shame and I'll always hold it against him
>stop disagreeing with me and like what I like
Literally why? It gets old as fuck and is nowhere near as enjoyable as Paradox titles.
>Be a retard
>get called out on it
>it was bait i swear!
Trolling and baiting used to mean something, the goal wasn't to be responded to it was meant to make other people act stupid but now moronic children like you have ruined that. Good work.
>more people playing a grind2win multiplayer game than a linear RPG with no mods that came out months ago
someone stop the presses, we've got the scoop of the decade right here!
Also, nobodies playing it on consoles now either.
You do know that the game sold very very very very very well on GoG too right?
Also as much as I hate to say this H1Z1 is a multiplayer game so it will more than likely have more regular players than a now 6 month old game.
You mean the random ban wave that comes every 3 months and barely puts a dent into the script users? You will meet 2-3 modders per lobby. You might get lucky and find a "nice" one who doesn't kill everyone over and over again. This is not an exaggeration. If R* permabans one, they just buy a new account. Never buy GTAV for the MP, even positive reviews say this.
as a man of no taste or standards, i game on the PS4
i am an informed consumer and everything i own in life is of utmost quality
>buys bloodborne again
Rust has the worst fucking optimization, I'll give you that but right now it's nothing like Dayz or ARK. They removed all zombie shit and went for more of a post nuclear apocalypse house building/raiding game.
The biggest disaster on that list is EU4 instead of CK2, which is an infinitely better game.
Dam Civ V still close to the top of the charts
>undertale, singleplayer 20 hr indie jrpg released months ago is on the first page with thousands playing.
This makes me feel so comfy.
post yfw you got starbound expecting them to actually develop the game, only to have what it is 2 years later
