What's the stupidest shit you've heard anyone say in regards to video games?
>It's not a first person shooter, it's a first person ADVENTURE

>the picture actually squiggles like in the show
I once heard someone saying playing video games is fun.
What kind of horse shit is that?
>Dark Souls is artificial difficulty!
>me: Bullshit, there is not a single part of it that can't be analyzed and taken advantage of.
>Okay, what about the lagginess of Blighttown?
>I bought a larger monitor, so now I can see long and CW at the same time.
Fuck me there is a qt grill that works at the Hot Topic across the street with short blue hair that covers her eyes and I will never date her because I'm a pussy and don't know how to converse with strangers.
>DMC2 and DmC are really good games
I know that sooner or later I should get a prize for simpatizing with brainless beings
>jerking off to a lesser kanker
>I like that video games are becoming simpler because I have a life
No fucking idea, he is a guy that bought a gaming laptop so you can imagine he's not entirely the smartest
and if anything by that logic multiplayer is just as pointless, you can hack and get all the kills, no fun in that
Work up the courage bro. I wish I had a QT gf that was down to roleplay as Marie.
That's a tough one, but I'm going to have to go with Ed.
Melee is truly a great fighting game and the epitome of skill. In fact the skill level in the game keeps rising as we discover new tech every day. I really wish there were more fighting games like this.
> The worst part? It’s hard to appreciate your work when you’re painfully aware of its flaws and inadequacies that 99% of people will never notice.

This is a quote from the lead character artist from Fallout 3 that also works with animation
Ed has retard strength though.
He regularly lifts houses.

I forgot about the monster episode. Rolf would ultimately lose now that I think about it.
Now Pissed off Sarah, Monster Ed, and Offended Rolf defending the cul-de-sac from Ship in a bottle Kankers? I'd pay to see that shit.

Sarah's only strength is found through emotional manipulation. No one wants to see her angry or sad, and those who force those emotions out of her must pay.
There are plenty of times when Sarah was sent completely powerless, like Hypnoses, angry Jimmy, and one other thing I'm forgetting.
Offended Rolf probably has the most actual combat experience, but Monster Ed is a force of nature.
I work there, ask me anything. My taste isn't the best, but it's probably better than over half of the people that work at my store.
>People who refuse to play a game because it doesn't have trophies/achievements.
>these people will never play Valkyria Chronicles
my problem with cancelling inputs on sf4 is i always forget to hold the button and let it go before i dash but it also feels weird dancing my hands like that on a controller, but im too pleb to dish out money on a stick and i havent figured out a decent keyboard configuration that doesnt feel weird/registers all my button presses
It's like they think consoles upgrade themselves, it's baffling. I play on consoles but there are a lot of games I won't play because they run like shit, for example I've never once played GTA5 since I've been waiting for the PC version.
Okay, how can a customer get friendly with a busy Hot Topic employee without bothering too much at her job and without stalking her outside of work? I make great friends with gamestop employees but Hot Topic just seems so weird to try to get friendly with the workers. I feel like I'd look like a fedorafriend, you know what I mean?
Not the anon you replied to but why do you work there? I'm going on the assumption you weren't desperate or in need of money.

I overheard the schools self proclaimed computer genius talking about CS 1.6 and how he could see both d2 long and cw at same time because he had bought a bigger monitor. The FOV is locked at 90 regardless of monitor.
It's all about timing. Catch them when they are on the sales floor folding shirts or something. That's their job, to just hang out on the floor and chat it up with customers (for selling shit of course). The cool employees will just chat with you to chat, however. Just come in on the regular and try and catch them when it isn't too busy.
From my experience, HT employees are pretty friendly when you aren't a fucking idiot, and when you are nice. I have regulars come in just to see me sometimes (and I have no vagina).
ah, understood. thank you. and there are faggots like that in every school. when i was in HS I had a "computer wiz" tell me how he figured out how to put more than 1.6 mbs on a floppy.
"Nintendo? Isn't that outdated? Who plays it anymore?" - Girl on my debate team trying to put the person on the other team down on the topic of video game violence. Everyone fucking cringed.
I was working at a local retail chain when a co-worker there who also worked at HT said she would refer me. A week later I walk in and they just threw the application at me. Another week and I'm folding shirts while listening to the Misfits on speakers.
That was a temp job, so I left after 2 months. While shopping for pants for another job, I walked in the store and my old boss practically hired me before I could say no.
I mainly work there because I like my co-workers that much.
>DMC isn't an RPG
>Metroid Prime isn't a FPS
What fucking game is that? A game should never have more than 150 achievements.
Remember, just don't come on too strong, and ask about sales every now and then, to make her feel like she is doing her job well (our job is done when you know of the sales and are actually looking at shit to buy, but in your case, just be cool).
Anything regarding bits is generally spout by people that don't understand shit about hardware.
The stupidiest are those that use bits as the sole measure of power or generation as well, since the start it was fucking wrong, given the fact the fastest console CPU wise on the 5th gen had a 8bit CPU and intellivision is 16bit.

My roommate upon watching me play Starcraft: "You like videogames? I reaaly liked final fantasy ex"
Yeah, the fun thing was that we had the "real" computer nerds in our class but we never told anyone so we used to give that guy and his class massive shit for things we did. One time that kid was asked to record and edit a school event, then he wanted to paid by the students that wanted to see the event again for a hefty sum. We pooled up for one copy and bought it, then put it on piratebay.
Can somebody post the thing where a guy tracked down a HT employee on facebook? He said he was the guy in a trenchcoat and fedora, and that he fantasized about her and that she could be his (some actress). The girl tore him up and explained why it was wrong to just assume a girl will be an accessory to you like that when you don't know anything about her other than that she's pretty.
In the same thread was a post with some guy whose first girlfriend was stolen by and turned into a lesbian when he tried to arrange a threesome with her friend.
>Girl: "Do you play league?"
>Girl: "Guess you're not a gamer then"
>>the wii motionsensor sucks
holy fuck, that so much. I understand that it wasn't really applied where it should have been (kid friendly nintendo, why would they make lots of hardcore fps games?) and we had shit like wagglan being the result of it, but I think they should have done more with the controls. Really, I gotta say that the Wii has the best controls for things like that wii boxing and other sports, and they should have done more rail shooters or something like those arcade shooters and they would have something better than any mouse and keyboard could do.

I think NV's quest could have been better, at least more of them that were more mystery oriented. And a few of them are ruined by the existence of the quest marker.
I'm really glad that the first time I played NV, I never noticed the little arrow that was always floating about the compass.

Kanker Sister thread?
"Really now who gives a shit about other games when Dota 2 exists? There won't ever be a remotely as hardcore game as Dota 2. I don't understand why you people bother arguing or having discussions about any other game when there won't be a game as comparably good as Dota 2 for another 10-20 years."
You cant even compare these two games. Both are very good in their own regard. I played both for hundreds of hours.
But Bannerlord will probably shit on the whole of M&B and Chivalry.
>Paper mario ttyd is fundamentally broken as a video game and has no true difficulty due to the existence of the super guard command, and if it didn't have the super guard command, then it could actually be considered a game with difficulty.

Remember that episode where they made a city out of cardboard and charged admission fees?
And all the kids LOVED it. There was no cheating there. Just straight up delivery of amusement.
Then it rained and all the cardboard melted.
Damn dis nigga clearly hasn't played any crpg's then, 100% resist an element, then heal from the element, gain mana from being hit by the element then reflect the damage
but still get wrecked because im still bad at crpgs

I'd say the greatest improvement was just starting the game and being able to finish the walkthrough in 5 minutes, instead of having to fucking walk around the vault and fight Butch
Come on, nobody actually said that. Right?
What are you talking about? There is no such game in Ace Attorney series.
my friend defended gone home when i coted it as an example of a lame videogame that gets too much praise and saw merit in the fact that it got a much higher score than DKC:TF because "its just a lame platformer"
i feel so out of place even among friends
I've heard people say a lot of bullshit when it comes to videogame. One thing that mostly pisses me off are quotes in the line of
>My framerate dropped. My internet provider sucks so hard.
Some guy I know almost got into a yelling match against me because he thought the Xbox Halo community was comprised of mature adults. I wasn't even being an ass, I calmly told him why I disagreed and he started raising his voice and calling me a fucking retard.
>GTAV shouldn't be on anyone's GOTY list because it is incredibly transphobic
>realize this faggot has missed the point of GTA
>If you play too much at night, the devil's going to possess you.

>implying the in game Halo community exists at all anymore
Matchmaking in those games is so barren it's sad. Last time I popped in 4 out of boredom there were around 2000is players online at the time.
It might of just been 4, but those games don't seem nearly as popular as they once were.
do you think gone home was good or that it desrved more merit than DKC:TF that got a lower score? just curious
you're right, also it doesn't anger me so much i just think gone home was latched on and given praise for no good reason outside of having a a gay character
i wouldn't qualify it as a game let alone praise it as a great game, it jsut seemed like it was being progressive for the sake of being progressive and failed doing what any game should strive to do
but now im rambling to people i don't know that don't care

I overheard some guys talking near the vidya aisle:
>THIS is the game I was talking about! Skyrim! It's fucking awesome. The characters are so advanced that they react so realistically! The developers said that they couldn't even predict how the dragons would act, it's that detailed!
i would agree that you can absolutely break the game, danger mario is pretty indestructible but i don't see why this is a problem given that its a purely singleplayer game and the player has to choose and go out of their way to break the game
but i guess you could say getting to a ridiculously high level through grinding ,akes you broken so you can't complain
I didn't. I couldn't help but smile, mostly because if it was a /v/ story I'd turn to them, explain why he was a fool, tip my fedora and waddle out of the store.
I've no idea what he was thinking. I'm guessing he just wanted to make the game seem cool to his even less knowledgeable friends.
>retards continuing to butcher languages and words because m-m-muh language changes because people don't understand definitions
I mean, come the fuck on. How can you screw up a word as simple as "rogue-like," literally like rogue. This isn't fucking difficult.
There are two camps on the issue: Those who understand what roguelike means nowadays, and those who understand what roguelike means nowadays but still sperg out over it whenever it gets brought up.
Stay mad, autist.
Anyone who blames video games for violent teens and shootings. I had this one teacher who kept comparing violent video games and teens to African kids being brainwashed and conditioned into child soldiers.

Visual Frame Aliasing
Seamless perception relies on rapid frame updating to render external changes in real time. Humans can render changes in reality at roughly 13-15 frames per second (fps, or Hz), which means that human reality fully refreshes roughly once every 77 milliseconds (ms), and open-eye saturation of peripheral filling fully fades at around 10-20 seconds (Fig. 5). Human frame perception is exploited by animation and film, which updates at 24 fps, and television, which updates near 30 fps. Computer monitors and high-definition televisions refresh at 60 Hz or higher, and at this rate human perception of motion is entirely seamless.8 The rate of human frame perception corresponds roughly to the alert beta range of waking human consciousness (12-30 Hz) seen in EEG readings.9 Any event which happens faster than 1/60th of a second (16.6 ms) falls between perceptual frames and is considered to be subliminal or imperceptible to human consciousness.10 Seamless frame rendering is also called temporal aliasing, and can be subverted by a variety of common phenomena, including stroboscopic lights which break motions into jerky snapshots, and wagon-wheel illusions where rotating spokes appear to stop or spin backwards.11,12,13
It's absolutely useless because you can aim perfectly anyways, the sights look like shit and constrict your vision, and some of them are inaccurate and improperly sighted. The only useful ADS is scopes, which work exactly like Fallout 3 anyways, so what's the point.
>Humans can render changes in reality at roughly 13-15 frames per second
>Sources an ebook about Psychedelic Shamanism and general New Age quackery.
What ever you say buddy.
>motion beyond 60fps is seamless
Holy shit, go open up a game and look around for a bit
This means if a light turns on for less than 1/60 of a second, apparently we don't even see it.
Implying that's not a smart decision.
With the earth's population more than decimated you're going to have to repopulate. And since males have a neverending supply of spunk, it's only logical to save females over males because of their expiration date.
Though there are a lot of other things factoring in which would affect your decision.
Fuck I feel like I've seen these exact posts before.

"Feminists" love to spew all this bullshit. Saying that vidya should be more attractive to women.
When did all this female oriented yellow journalism bullshit come along. ;.;
Some fuck at Microsoft told me that when I went on an excursion to their local offices for Software class.
I didn't believe it at all, and neither did the other schools there.
I'd like to know what they count as gamers. Because phone games do not count. And playing a single series or genre shouldn't either.
I really don't care that much what gender games cater to. But seriously, it pisses me off when people get worked up over this "Video games should be more appealing to womyn!"
This is so wrong, holy shit.
>APB doesn't need headshots. Headshots are just a way for pro players to kill everyone and it makes the game too skill focused.

>this game in the series was the most innovative, making it the best game in the series
>the newer games in the series were better in most ways, but they weren't nearly as innovative as that older game, so they weren't as good
I have literally seen hipsters that literally unironically think like that discussing video games on /v/.
Example: literally thinking GTAIII was objectively better overall compared to San Andreas, GTAIV, or GTAV.
The arm cannon, though also used as a means of combat, is more notably used to facilitate exploration via the various beam types. Hence, because the emphasis is on exploration over combat, it is a First-Person ADVENtURE.
>>The teams in l4f2 are perfectly balanced. The survivors have no real advantage over the infected.
??? Both teams are scored on their survivor runs anyway, balance isn't even an issue in l4d.
Your idea of "objectively" is giving no weight to innovation.
Their idea of "objectively" grants a certain weight to innovation.
It is not more or less "objective" to value or not value innovation. You are trying to form an objective metric which is a composite of a bunch of incommensurable metrics, the relative values of which are entirely subjective.
>the dark souls of action RPGs
>the dark souls of fantasy RPGs
>neither of these is dark souls itself
People die so quickly in APB without headshots that I don't really see how you could implement it. You die anywhere from 2-5 shots with the popular weapons. Would you just want head-shots to be instant kills with all weapons? What they REALLY need to fix is the fact that foot/hand-shots do the same damage as everything else.
Still the most cringe worthy thing I've ever read.
I agree with most of these. Never played f-zero on snes or quake 2
I fucking hate jrpgs. I can do turn-based games all day, everyday; jrpgs are just seem so repetitive. Not to mention if you've played one jrpg, you've pretty much played them all in terms of gameplay.
many times i have heard people cheer and generally approve shitty DLC and always online. They believe its a favor done for them. It is so disgustingly small minded it makes me want to puke. They are the reason the gaming industry is shit right now. They are the reason these scamy F2P models are successful. It insults me personally and i'm just so disgusted by it all. Why god? why?
>"You make games for a living? That's so cool, I wish my job was that easy!"
No, I dig through code for 8-12 hours a day looking for any little mistake because the code monkeys they hire are basically braindead and if I left the code the way they wrote it, your computer would catch on fire or summon an elder god or something.
I think he meant the Microshit employee said "50% of gamers are girls"
Which is ONLY true if you consider smartphone games and browser shit to be games.
That shit is to video games as Monopoly is to Warhammer. If you want to call Monopoly a table-top game and say that "50% of tabletop gamers are 40 year old women!"
>Playing SMT: Nocturne.

Nigga died like 3 times in 20 minutes before he stormed off like a faggot.
I love Chivalry, game is fun as fuck. Why do TornBanner have to suck so much at being devs? Why is the community so damn toxic and full of the hardest try-hards?
Why did they change the game so much from the original?
"Why can't they glorify women in video games, why can't the companies stop portraying women as prostitutes or stupid dits who are only used as sex symbols.There is such an increase in girl gamers, I believe that video game companies should now respect that and make more respectful games."
If there are so many girl gamers, why don't they make there own company and own games. Why the fuck should a company change the games they want to make because you demand equal rights.
The only way I can see this happening is that it tries to delete whatever directory the program is in, regardless of what else is in the directory.
They can't be that lazy, right?
