When Dear Esther came out everyone was raving about what an incredible emotional journey it was, saying "it's more than a game, it's an experience" (actual quote from a review from one of my steam friends at the time)

Any nintendo game, from the SNES up to the Wii U. I enjoy a few SNES RPGs, but anything else, no. In particular Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong Country, and Smash. I play for a while, humor my friends that like it, then I always end up saying to myself, "this shit is made to keep little kids busy and is incredibly simple, why am I still playing it?", I even realized that when I was really young. I'm convinced a lot of nintendo fans confuse color and innocence for fun. The only nintendo games I like are Metroid and Mario Kart, and the former is dead and the latter is the same game repackaged since the gamecube days and is only fun with friends.

I have wanted to get that off my chest for so fucking long. I have absolutely no idea why /v/ has such a boner for nintendo,

I get that, I'd never say that nintendo games are bad because I recognize they are well designed and I'm not the target demo anymore, but when people say shit like "ONLY NINTENDO MAKES FUN GAMES", it fucking infuriates me. There are so many other developers that make games like nintendo and do it so much better, yet nintendo gets a free card just because they're nintendo. They don't deserve to have survived past the 90s, but that's just my opinion.

Fallout 3, I bought it on a steam sale thinking it was an immersive atmosphere heavy game, kind of like the STALKER games.
NOPE.

Witcher 2

All i heard was praise for that game so i bought it on a sale. It was okay, but it was a became kind of a chore to finish. The characters, story, setting, voice acting and combat was all pretty boring in my personal and most humblest of opinions. And sitting through 20 seconds of wait time to open a menu, drink some elixirs, wait for the animation and close the menu again got tedious real quick.

maybe witcher 3 will be more interesting.

I really want to like CK2, but I never got anything interesting to happen so I kinda feel something is wrong and stop playing.
At least EUIV is more warfare based so I have a clear clue what I should be doing, but in CK2 I feel completely lost on what I should be doing.
Every time I boot I play it for about an hour without having a clue what to do and I quit.
Maybe I'm just too used to capture land by sword and guns whereas CK2 is supposedly based on inheritance or something.

My problem with Planescape Torment, was in my expectations. I own every manual of AD&D Planescape and I love Diterlizzi's art. So then I buy the game expecting it to look like that art (stupid I know). What I got looked so sterile in comparison to the original art from the books.
That was a real turn-off right there.
Tried to play the game regardless, but I just couldn't get in to it now that my precious expectations hadn't been met.

it boils down to if you can tolerate the combat system. It's good and bad at the same time.
Geralt controls snappy enough but when you can only hit a guy one or two times before rolling away to avoid being one shot by some other guy, it gets to be a pain in the balls

Try CK2. It's easier to get into and better overall in my opinion (or more fun at least)

Just a warning, it is fucking miserable at first. The tutorials are shit, they're tedious, and they're prone to just fucking breaking and ceasing to work at all. But once you actually figure out what you're doing, it's amazing.

Hate fighting games, difficulty of input is something they actually appreciate, that kind of retarded shit would never fly in another genre, imagine if you were playing an FPS and one gun was overpowered but it's ok because it requires 3 full circles + shoot + throw grenade + Melee to fire.

The most infuriating is alpha pat from soul calibur his move set is basicaly broken the only thing that keeps him "balanced" is fuck impossible inputs on his basic and essential moves.

It was exactly what somebody said, a game about nothing. You go out, find shit, do some typical rpg quests, alchemizew stuff and that's it. Yes I read the reviews and watched the few threads that people make

Just grind a little and make yourself reach an attack level where it only takes 8 or so hits to kill the beast, it doesn't take that long to reach that level. I recommend using the halberd since it's really powerful for its speed and length. Also having a light crossbow on your left hand is useful, shoot at the gargoyle when there is only 1 left and it is standing still breathing fire.

I tried so hard to like FPS just to fit in with my friends, but I hate them. They're not fun for me. And I hate how that was pretty much the only thing they ever wanted to talk about or play. Anytime a group wants to talk about games, it's mainly about FPS. Want to play games? FPS.

Even now, I mostly play by myself, and there's always one friend that tries to get me to do co-op with them, but I get bored really quick.

BlazBlue.

I love Guilty Gear. I like fighting games, I like heavy metal, and I like animu, but I just couldn't get into it the way I could with GG; it didn't have the same charm.
I decided to give it a break and come back to it later, for the sake of a fair judgment, but by then it was already on BlazBlue CS:GO Super Calamity Fighting Arcade Edition 3.2 and I just said "fuck it."

Warband, everyone on /v/ acts like this game is the second coming of Jesus.
The combat feels really clunky, especially after playing games like War of the Roses, War of the Vikings, and Chivalry. The game has a lot of major flaws that were immediately apparent to me and require lots of modding to fix.

I've played this game so much I can barely remember the tens of hours of frustration and fuckups from when I first started. Nowadays I can just run through the entire thing in 6 hours without dying. It really just comes down to putting enough time into the game until it clicks for you. I started and restarted this game probably about 8 times over a two-year period before I actually discovered how to play the damn thing properly, but it was definitely worth it. Keep at it, you'll have the time of your life once you get into it.

SSB Brawl.

I gave the game a honest 4-5 months, couldn't find a main, lost interest in playing after I unlocked all unlockables. Plus the multiplayer was a fucking shitty mess where everything felt like a pillow fight. The game itself was so nerfed coming from SSb64, and Melee, that it just felt unplayable for me. I dont personally see the appeal in it.

Oh and dont even get me started on the online community, much less the online itself. Fucking absolutely horrible. I can see why the tourneyfags complain. Any problem with the engine/physics that the game has offline, is exacerbated online with how delayed everything is.

in b4 I get called tourneyfag for not circlejerking what is legitimately the worst game in the series and a stain on nintendo's game craftsmanship. The game is legitimately bad from all angles, casual, tournament, regular, with or without items. It's a poorly crafted piece of shit.
