Post trilogies where each game was significantly better than the last.
I really can't think of any except The Witcher.
Megaman could count, if you stop counting at 3.
>witcher 2 was significantly better than witcher 1
play the games retard
I loved the hell out of TW1. I completed literally every quest in the game, and even played all the free postgame mini-DLCs released by CDPR. Loved every second of it.
TW2 was a much different game, but I thought it was better. It was shorter and more action-packed, sure, but it was a nice change of pace after TW1. I loved it too. Played through it twice, to see both paths.
There are finally some niggas out there that really get it.
Nice try you opinionated Chinese image board extra chromosomer.
>mfw first time I crossed the bridge into Novigrad after spending 20 hours in Velen
>mfw I passed idyllic meadows before entering the city
>mfw I heard this for the first time
How can this game be so fucking comfy?
Yep. They definitely know how to create greate mood in this game.
>Witcher 2 was better in every single way.
>less side quests
>short, linear and cinematic
>stealth sections that have no place to be there
>combat less functional than what the first game had
>preparation takes forever but gives buffs that are short and worthless
It has its moments and I can see it being the necessary step between 1 and 3 but it's the worst one hands down
I couldn't get past the first villiage desu senpai, music was nice
>and mass effect
it's not arguable at all you neo /v/ fucking retarded. mass effect 1 is the only game that exists in the series as far as i'm concerned. only reddit and neo /v/ will disagree
I still think the moment you first reach the top of that first hill in Ard Skellig and see the mountain was the greatest thing in that game.
Everything about Ard Skellig felt like what Skyrim should have been like.
>I don't understand the hate for The Witcher 2 on this sub
The story was pretty weak in Mass Effect 2, to be honest (although it was probably my favorite Mass Effect game due to the sheer amount of content). Mass Effect 1 had a great story (probably arguably the best of any of the Mass Effect games), and Mass Effect 3 was amazing in its own right. What made Mass Effect 3's story so great is you're finally taking it to these Reaper assholes that have been terrorizing Earth.
Mass Effect 2 was just your typical "build a team to save the world" plot that we've seen done over a million times. The only thing that makes Mass Effect 2 a great game is the sheer amount of content the game now has after nickel and diming people to death on DLC.
I would love to go back and play Mass Effect 1 again because it has been so long since I've played it that I've forgotten a good portion of the story (although I can still recall the climaxing parts of the story like I just played it yesterday). But the thing is, after the technical advancements in Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3, any time I try to go back and play Mass Effect 1 I just can't stomach myself to play it anymore. The overall game lacks the fluidity they finally found with Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3.
I would totally replay Mass Effect 1 though if they remastered it on Unreal Engine 4 (or hell even Unreal Engine 3.5).
Those overland missions. Those God damned overland missions. I'm so glad they got rid of that with Mass Effect 2 and kept them out of the game.
Ratchet and clank 3>2>1
Not really a trilogy, but kinda still is
Somehow I'm struggling to think of any trilogies.
All I got for right now, but at least those 3 are objectively correct
Metal Gear Solid 1/2/4
I loved 4, but it was just a nostalgia trip that unnecessarily "ended" the story. Metal Gear was the last game series I ever expected to actually have an ending, given it's fairly ambiguous nature, but 4 kept that nature AND tied most things up. Albeit pretty badly, but tied up nonetheless.
>Nice meme, m8.
He is right though.Btw. First Mass Effect is only really good Mass Effect. I still cant believe that those fuckers from bioshit could butcher this serie so much.
Also the second Ultima trilogy (4,5,6).
Wizardry's Dark Savant games (VI, VII, VIII) although some argue that VII is the best part
>finally bought the Witcher 3
>get to play it for about an hour
>DLP tv bulb blows up
>have to wait at least a week until I can get replacement part
>sitting here looking at Witcher 3 box
Rose-tinted glasses, anon
Horribly paced, terrible combat system, based off the shitty aurora engine from Bioware's NWN.
Game doesn't actually get "good" until you've been a LONG time in.
>Enter the swamps for the baron
>Three ladies stuff starts happening
>This theme plays through the entire swamp section
Best track in the game
Best villains in the game
Bloody baron was the peak of the witcher 3, other sections were good, but nothing could match them
Till Other M came out.
What? No I'm not. I grew up with isometric RPGs. The Witcher 1 was a complete fucking stinker. It tried to be some sort of hybrid between traditional isometric RPG and action RPG, and just ended up failing.
Fair enough. I still hold that it takes far too long for the story to get it's footing (terrible pacing), but the end game did show a lot of promise with what CDPR is capable of.
>Big fan of The Witchers series
>Know my computer won't handle Witcher 3, but still buy it because I believe it can still be able to run
>Played a big part of the game on low/medium settings with low fps
>Point where it's now unplayable because of Novigrad
>Drop the game for many months
>Finished upgrading my PC last week
>Can now enjoy 60fps Witcher 3 on ultra
Feels good, man.
Hope you'll be able to enjoy it soon, the wait is worth it!
Loving this meme. Don't get me wrong, there are bad DLC's and there are cases where a game shouldn't have paid DLC (or at least less), but paid DLC as a whole is bad? No.
>paid DLC as a whole is bad? No.
Agreed. DLC in it's current state is overpriced trash. The potential was great for what DLC could have been. I liked it better when $25 seasons passes used to be called expansion packs and added near enough content to be considered a sequel.
We've come to a weird place with paid DLC these days. Things like Horse Armor used to be criticized for being overpriced cosmetics. Nowadays, people wholeheartedly support overpriced cosmetics as "it's just cosmetics, it doesn't matter".
Not saying I agree or disagree, just saying it feels so weird considering the backlash from horse armor.
