Kay. But now that you mention it, that does make more sense. Also, it's more autistic to express such extreme negativity against someone for a misconception. Do you stand up in front of your boss and yell shit like that when he tells you something incorrect?

I do have a few of the signs of autism. Everyone does. But unbridled rage in unrestrained and minor situations is one of the big ones.

Rise and fall from grace is cool and all, but what about games that became rollercoasters of quality? Like, they start out fine, turn into shit, but then comeback better than ever? Then possibly be shitty again? Franchises like that.

Examples I can think of are Twisted Metal, Contra, and Mortal Kombat.
>>
>>315598529
Also, I figured out a good comparison between the Simpsons and videogames.
The videogame industry as a whole has sunk as hard as the Simpsons. It still gets a smile out of people now and then, but has generally gotten extremely stale, used up, and bad.

I posted this in another thread this week, but I'll repost here.

I feel like Sonic is basically the Simpson's of video games at this point.

They had a huge explosion of popularity in the 90's because of it's genuine quality, but started to taper off at the turn at the millennium. 15 years later, you have a franchise that got way to big for the parent company to ever abandon, despite it not being good in years, and a league of elitist fans who declare themselves the true lovers of the series, even though they swear off over half of the series' entire existence and only acknowledging the old shit from when they were a kid.

I now watch the endings, every time a new game comes out, because I wan't to know where they're going with the story, but it's always dog shit, every fucking time, so no, I wouldn't play 3.

If that was the goal, it really didn't work. I expect shitposting like that from /v/. It just gives me an excuse to respond in kind. Not everyone reaches the same end result from the same initial input. If you give two people an identical pile of Lego bricks with no instructions, the chances of them building the same thing is extremely unlikely.

/v/ analogy: If there are two paths to take in a videogame, some people will pick the first while others will pick the second their first playthrough. Hence, I arrived at a different conclusion based off the information in OP. Oh well.

I wanted to see the modern world, run by Abstergo, with Desmond finding whatever was left of the Assassin's in modern times, teaming up, finding some pieces of Eden, and taking Abstergo down, all while the inevitability of the world ending, fighting through the odds, and trying to prevent it somehow.

Add gun-fu then continuously contrive reasons for there not being a guy with a gun on a rooftop? Or like four feet away out of reach?

The Desmond plot was bullshit. It was as unwelcome in AC3 as it was in the original AC when everyone threw a bitch fit about it. I don't know if you were on the internet in 2007, but everyone complained about the sci-fi elements, since the game was sold not just primarily, but exclusively as a period piece stealth/platformer game. Then it turned out you weren't actually playing as Altair, you were actually playing as Blandy Blanderson from Blandsville as he played as Altair.

I remember that when I played AC, I would send Desmond straight to his bed because the modern sections were bad and boring.
>>
>>315603751
Just means you have to be more stealthy? The very few scenes we get of the modern world in newer AC games, Abstergo has guns, having guns is a non-issue, just one of those weird complaints people use, simply for the sake of complaining.
It isn't as if AC games are literary masterpieces, it's a video game, they get a way with this shit all the damn time. Have a scene where Desmond gets his new Assassin's outfit, which is conveniently bullet proof, problem solved.

Any videogame series that brought out games in 2000 and prior, as well as now.

I'm assuming your still AC fans then? Do you like the way the series is now? What would you have preferred? The garbage we have now? or a final Desmond focused game that wraps up the story.
I must be one of the few people who liked the sci-fi elements then, I'm honestly kind of shocked.

Every fighting game franchise.

> Black Flag is apparently good

Black Flag was heaps of fun, but it highlights the main issue with AC games now - they're boring.

Edward already knows most of the assassin moves, so you don't get to play with new mechanics. After about halfway I was bored of being an assassin because it was the same thing everytime, sometimes with a new toy.

The Jackdaw on the other hand was heaps of fun. Start off with a piss-weak ship that you slowly build to become mighty and powerful. Ships you once ran in fear from become your bitch as your asrenal upgrades. It reminded me of AC I and II where you only have basic moves, but learn new and exciting ways to take out opponents. It was the sense of progression
>>
Silent Hill and Resident Evil, but especially Silent Hill.

Black Flag is one half of a great game. Well, that's not entirely accurate. Black Flag is a great game stapled to a shitty one. If all the game was was sailing around, raiding ships, exploring small islands for treasure/maps/collectibles, I would have been perfectly OK with that. Instead the game ropes you into doing the awful Assassin's Creed bits. Almost every fucking AC mission in 4 boils down to either, "Tail that guy," "Tail that guy while listening to him," "Chase after that guy you just tailed," or "Tail that guy while in your boat."
>>315605035
I would rather play "the garbage we have now" than play a game focused entirely on Desmond. I didn't get into the Assassin's Creed games to listen to Nolan North smarm his way through another modern-day game; I got into Assassin's Creed because I wanted to explore historical periods and stab the occasional dude. I got back out of Assassin's Creed because while I want to do that, I don't want do that every single year in negligibly better iterations.

I might end up doing what most (rational) people end up doing with other yearly franchise released games and skip most of them and just buy one every three or four years.

I skipped Unity, apparently Syndicate is Unity 2.0 so I'll likely skip that too, but I may pick up next year's AC game. I should have done that with the other games too. I could have skipped Revelations and 3 and played Black Flag.

Unity is step in the right direction, by making it more like AC1. Syndicate isn't Unity 2.0, unfortunately.

There are a few off the top of my head.

Heroes of Might and Magic. (I was so hopeful for 7)

Most MMOs today in general.

Phantasy Star Online series (though psp2 was fantastic)

Assassin's creed

As a bonus Spore would get the cake because it had that simpsons effect confined to one game from preview to release. Damn.. now I made myself sad.

spongebob has its own syndrome named after it. they did studies of kids who watched fast paced stuff verses non-fast paced stuff and found the kids who watched spongbob for just 10 mins had shorter attention spans for the rest of the day.

weirdly, despite verifiable proof that letting your kid watch spongebob is bad for them, its still there.

thank you confirming that i have a personal opinion instead. seriously, all halo ever did was put a bunch of gameplay mechanics that other games did better, made them a little worse, and slapped it together.

This desu

Even declined around the same time. Peaked in the mid 90s, was on its way out at the turn of the century and everything else since is garbage.

>>315597670
Zelda is comparable, right down "new staff takes over halfway through the series, now series is a parody of what made it great and is a zombie series people keep with more out of obligation than enjoyment".
>>
>>315597670

Sonic

Final Fantasy maybe

Has to be a long running series to make sense really. I think Sonic fits the bill best

You could possibly argue Mario but since the games generally have a positive track record it's harder to.
>>
>>315606713

Is this real

I never had cable growing up, just saw shit at my friends houses but for what ever reason, I got in to Sponge Bob in it's several early seasons, stopped caring after the movie.

Am I fucked or is this just typical ruse click bait science

Sonic
Legend of Zelda
Final Fantasy
Halo
Metroid
Splinter Cell
Anything by Konami

been out of the loop, what happened to the simpsons?

Did it get really bad over the years?
>>
>>315608342
Skyward Sword and Link Between Worlds are both fantastic games by any standards.
Triforce Heroes is just a spinoff
>>
>>315608810
9 was the last consistently good season. 10 had its moments (i.e. Mayored to the Mob), but it's been fucking garbage since then.
>>
>>315608810
It's been bad since season 13, and that just me pushing it
>>
>>315608810
The FOX heads are insane and won't stop until the Simpsons dies or the world.

So probably the latter.
>>
>>315608842
So you like modern Simpsons too.
>>
>>315605736
Although our opinions are wildly different, I think I might do the same.
I love the sci-fi bullshit, but if the game is shit, I can just watch videos to keep up to date with that part of the story, while I play only the good AC games.
The only good one, that I haven't played yet, seems to be Black Flag, for the pirate ship aspect alone, but I'll keep up to date with AC, and see if any of the newer games seem interesting in any way, from now on.
Sengoku-era/Three Kingdoms focused game could breath some life into the series, fingers crossed.

Warcraft.

I don't care if it's nostalgia but fuck, I loved the RTS games and Vanilla.

the ones that stand out the most to me:

Sacred
Dungeon Siege
Sim City and every other franchise EA has aquired
Sonic
Final Fantasy
Silent Hill
Mega Man

a lot of others come to mind, but these are the ones that can't be argued based on personal taste, they just utterly went to shit
>>
>>315597670
Yes
Most all of them have
>>
>>315609049

How many seasons are they signed on for?

I doubt that the creators will dump it given the cash cow that it is, however it would be nice if they had the choice.
