Reminder that TECHNOLOGY is the only measure we have - alongside AI - of video games going forward as a medium. Reminder that the only current game attempting to do something with either is Dwarf Fortress.
Reminder that video games are devolving and the consumers don't give a damn,
Reminder that facecam people and their personality cults are the medium's future as evidenced by majority of threads on /v/ and other youth culture sites.
>go back and play vidya from 90s and early 2000s

What the fuck
Prime example of devolution. The 'renaissance' of wRPG is exactly the same as Hollywood's endless self referencing without an ounce of creativity. It's either horrible art pixelshit as pic related (with added throwback JRPG gameplay from 20 years ago) or games that make Infinity Engine look good.
Look at Chris Avellone, the fucker has become a human kickstarter goal. When creator depends on the lowest common denominator, bad things happen.
Berserk on PS2
Funny how Souls games built up a gigantic fanbase and you never hear demands for physics models of Berserk and Severance there.
Hell, most of those consumers wanted shitty ragdolls from first two Souls games back.
all dwarves have their own personalities and tastes derived from their pre-migration experiences and their experiences in your fort. this is 100% what guides their conduct, skills, and reactions to events. that's quite TECHNOLOGY.
DESU, the best game I've played in the last 5 years was Charles Barkley Shut Up and Jam Gaiden. A game made buy some schlubs with no budget on some RPG maker shit.
The only other game that stood out as super fun was MGR. Otherwise the other new games I have enjoyed are old games. Just started playing shovel knight. Pretty fun, haven't played enough to give a judgement. Music seem bretty good.
Fun fact: FEAR seemed to have better AI due to a trick programmers used - when enemies saw you, they'd shout things that made you believe they were able to do more than they could in reality.
At least MGR had some fun slicing, that's decent enough tech.
