>50s theme and music

The 50s aesthetic is fine but Bethesda do not know how to be subtle and as a result shove it down your throat at every opportunist while making like half of the radio music about radiation and bombs

It's only semibait. Comparing a pipe pistol to the .223 is silly, but it's a reasonable point of criticism. Weapons in Fallout 1 and 2 (and some in New Vegas) are fairly futuristic and clean looking but Bethesda just decided to take the super rustic approach even though their games take place even further in the future than 1 and 2.

Nope. We're due one soon. Not been any major ones since 2008. People are getting tired of Modern Warfare era and want to go back to the good old days.

Games where you're just an errand boy suck.

In the best RPGs out there you are someone important (ex: Revan, the Exile, The chosen one, Nerevarine, bhaalspawn, etc.)

>>
>>322745019
I feel the same OP, it just doesn't appeal to me, probably for this >>322745262 sort of reason. It feels so forced and unnatural, like the game was just put in that time period for the hell of it or just so it could have that aesthetic instead of an actual legit reason.

Other things that put me off:
>Excessive anime (Games like Valkyria Chronicles aren't too bad in this regard because they at least balance it with decent gameplay, story and visuals)
>Any "early access" survival game like H1Z1
>Most FPS (only good one I can think of that came out recently is the new Wolfenstein, honestly all the others look boring as fuck)
>Multiplayer with cash shop
>Day one DLC
>>
>>322745019
>things that put you off trying games/franchises
The name of the game is the main selling point. Once that happens I drop a series.

He is pretty much the definition of marysue
>>
>>322760021
I don't necessarily mean errand boy. Just random shmuck who gives the mission a try. Not to say "chosen one" games aren't bad, but it makes it terrible when you're constantly having your back patted for being the hero of the universe.

Diablo 1 and 2:
>Oh hey, there's some fucked up shit going on in this town I'm visiting. Wonder if I can help out in any way
Diablo 3:
>IT IS MY SWORN DESTINY AS NEPHALEM TO BE THE SAVIOR OF PEOPLES AND DESTROY THE DEMONS BECAUSE EVERYBODY SAYS SO
>>
>>322760429
>A Mary Sue or Gary Stu or Marty Stu is an idealized fictional character, a young or low-rank person who saves the day through unrealistic abilities. Often but not necessarily this character is recognized as an author insert and/or wish-fulfillment.

geralt is about a hundred years old, a seasoned witcher who is only really good at killing. That's literally all he's good at.

The only friends he has are zoltan and dandelion. the common people are repulsed by him, and the local lords barely tolerate his presence.

he does jobs for money, not to be the hero that everybody dreams about

He is far from a perfect character

Futuristic? Yes.

Clean looking? Not in FO1. FO2 and FNV are the only games with clean tacticool weapons.
>>
>>322760878
figures of authority barely tolerate him. have you read any of the books? they're utterly repulsed by his proficiency in murder.

He's not the last member, and he isn't knowledgeable about everything in the world. in fact, his only expertise is in monsters, which makes sense because he is a monster-slayer. He consults the cult of Melitele for medicine. And consults mages on magic.

he doesn't have to save the world you mouth-breathing retard. In the witcher 3, his entire motiv3 is to save Ciri.

I'm not sure the exact technical definition of marysue applies because people like to be autistically precise about it, but I think that's close enough.

Honestly his only real flaw is that he has shit taste in women. Triss and Yen both suck.

Bethesda's laser weaponry looks better.
Kind of agree on the shotgun though and the pipe shit is just bait because I found the pipe weapons clever as fuck and seeing as how they are in the original Fallouts as well you can go fuck yourself.

This shit is fucking everywhere and it's fucking obnoxious. It's in art, movies games fuck people think they are so deep when they use this shitty trope yet every one of these people use those phones on a daily basis because they are not actually bad it's just the in thing to say.

>>322765743

Vesemir is actually in universe the most skilled swordsman in the world and has more experience and thus knowledge of monsters than all the other remaining witchers alive.

Signs are trash when compared to real magic, fucking hell it's stated a million times even in the games that if normal people would just learn them they could do signs too.

So being a moral person is now a mary sue feature?

Plenty of women resist his charms, the ones most susceptible to him are sorceresses and they tend to make his life miserable.

The people that treat him with contempt are made out to be fools because the game is from his perspective, and regardless most of them are treating him with contempt because of stupid fucking reasons like thinking they know more about monsters than he does because they heard some stupid legend from a milk maid or some shit.

We both know Geralt would beat Vesemir. That's the way of the Witcherverse.

It's not only signs, but physical prowess as well. Enhanced strength, agility, endurance, reflexes, etc.

Yes, when the game is populated by evil or ignorant buffoons who seem completely dumbfounded when he deigns to explain to them that rape and murder are bad, and that they should be as upstanding and pure-hearted as the legendary Geralt.

Barely any desirable women aren't lusting after his gigantic cock.

The disdain for Geralt makes very little sense. It's only that way in the first place to drum up pity points for him, and make it even grander when he eventually proves his infallible magnificence to everyone for the umpteenth time.
>>
>>322766754
wait a second is that skub?
>>
>>322769678

Now you're stretching.


Geralt defeating Vesemir is legit unlikely, however since it is a fight that would never have happened in a serious manner it's a moot point.

Geralt has the physical prowess because he is a witcher. Witcher is more than a mere profession it is an artificial offshot of humanity created through alchemical and magical mutation not to mention his own physical training.

I'm not even going to explain to you how bullshit this one is, if you've actually played any of the games you know how fucking retarded this statement is.

Phillipa, Ciri, Saskia, Cynthia, and Sile just to name a few.
Really the only women that Geralt has been with in the games that legitimately cared about him was Triss, Yennefer and Shani, and most of the others have just been flings or in the case of Keira she's just sleeping with him to distract him from her real plan which actually happens more often than not in the books.

People are disdainful of him because he's a killer for hire and a mutant, how does that make no sense?

this is an energy weapon that obsidian had brought back.

notice the quality of the weapon compared to the middle school science fair project toy that bethesda came up with because MUH PERPETUAL 50'S CULTURE prevented them from making serious technological advancements IN THE YEAR 2077.

bethesda even had the fucking balls to claim that the heap of dumpster scrap shoddily put together was actually used by the military during the war. what a fucking joke.

I dont even play call of duty.

Im fine with deep rpgs. Melee combat is just so fucking boring and repetitive for me, its the same few
moves over and over.

Recently picked up the witcher, put 20 hours into it, couldnt get into it, dropped it because it just didnt
click with me. I am however still looking forward to Cyberpuunk 2077, which I hope will have the
same depth as the Witcher, but be set in the future so we have much more variety in the combat.
