I don’t.

I enjoy games a lot more knowing I got a good deal on them.

Disappointed no pokemanz

I already live in a world where I have freewill to do anything at any time.

that it appeals to you to have hundreds of video games?

Or do you find movies to be even more a case of one and done consumable content?

I know everyone says PlayStation is better but the battery life of the controller has drove me up the wall this gen. It dies before I can conclude a single gaming session.

Based on the nothing you currently know about them, which one would you pick?

Modern Video Games / What platform do you play on most?

I mostly play PC.

I like that I can listen to music/podcasts/youtube videos in the background and alt+tabbing out during multiplayer matchmaking to check my emails or browse a forum or the net.

I have a Switch, XB1 and PS4 but use my PC almost exclusively really.

When the next generation comes out I might simply get an even better PC instead of picking up the next xbox and playstation.

I like the versatility of my PC (that it can do other things) and the infinite backwards compatibility and the options to use either keyboard/mouse or controller. 

What is it like to own hundreds/thousands of games or blu rays?

General / Do you know any games with really hard difficulty?

I find most modern games very easy. I always play on the hardest difficulty on the first play through because I want all the trophies/achievements and probably won’t replay a single player experience.

There really hasn’t been a lot of challenges this generation in my opinion.

Mass Effect Andromeda was kinda hard at points but that was only because of how bullet spongy the bosses became.

The only good example I have of challenge is Sniper Elite 3 on aithentic difficulty. That is just masochist hard on some maps. You die virtually in one hit if spotted and will be swarmed at any opportunity if noticed. I like to try to kill absolutely everyone in the level, and there are no saves on hardest difficulty.

Most of the time if a game wasn’t designed to be hard (like dark souls was) the difficulty slider just makes enemies bullet sponges and it’s really phoned in and makes the games more tedious than hard.

Oblivion/Skyrim/Fallout 3/Fallout New Vegas
RuneScape (popular browser based MMORPG when I was early teen)
A MOBA game that will not be spoken of but has 3K hours in
Mount and Blade: Warband
PAYDAY The Heist / 2
Rainbow Six Siege
Forza Motorsport 5 (came with XB1 and was launch title so one of few things to play for like a year straight) and Forza Horizon 2 ... just got really into it at the time for some reason
Sniper Elite 3 authentic difficulty
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2
Red Dead Redemption 2

A MOBA and MMO certainly got the most play. They may not have been most fun but were most addictive. Then stuff like Bethesda rpgs and multiplayer FPS games.

I played a ton of Mario on SNES and N64 but I was so young I have no comprehension of the actual time spent. I used to play 99 stock (lives) matches of Super Smash on N64 and GameCube endlessly that I can’t put an hour figure on either.

I was really into Left4Dead, that was so fun and novel when first out.

I’ve played a lot of dynasty warriors too.

My most played when I was younger was Super Mario 3 / World on SNES. It was basically the only game at the time. Super Mario 64 got a ton of play time too.

My most played ever is probably a MOBA at 3,000 hours (not a joke nor exaggeration).

Single player wise in recent times definitely Oblivion, Skyrim, Fallout 3/NV.

When Xbox came out I compulsively played Halo 1 and 2 too.

A lot of stuff is kinda ‘one and done’ especially when I was too young to have a job and trading in each time to get something new.

I haven’t played a lot of multiplayer titles but that is where the big play time racks up because it’s different every time and infinitely replayable.

Some games I was extremely fond of I haven’t played more than once e.g. Bioshock.

I’m always hoping for something that I can play for a really long time because I love it and not because I’m addicted to it. HITMAN and Sniper Elite 3 authentic difficulty gave me that kind of feeling.

I'm going to say that since this is a video game collector's website, the answer for most people is probably going to be... yeah?

But the focus is retro video games not manufactured plastic tchotchkes or alternative slip cases etc.

Isn't it kinda messed up that they are manufactured to be of appeal rather than organically being something desirable (i.e. old, out of print, rare, nostalgic with passage of time)?

Modern Video Games / Re: How do you feel about always online games?

It's quite the trend now that 'requires internet' features on boxes. Just remembered a few others:

Need for Speed (2015)
Metal Gear Survive
The Division 1
Fallout 76
Gran Turismo Sport
Call of Duty WWII
Call of Duty BLOPS4
Destiny 2

Modern Video Games / How do you feel about always online games?
« on: February 01, 2019, 07:11:25 pm »
You know the ones that say 'requires internet' or similar on the box.

I know it shouldn't bother me but it kinda does.

I just jump to 'so if my internet drops out I can't play this' - my internet almost never goes out but still - it's the principle.

My mind also jumps to 'so I'm always gonna have to give money to MS/Sony for Gold or PS+ just to run this thing'.

It puts me off.

Games like Anthem and Division 2 I'd probably enjoy playing as a single player experience but there's just something wrong about always online even for single player.

It hasn't stopped me always from playing something I was really interested in, I played HITMAN and paid full price for instance despite it being always online. But I do routinely rule always online games out just cause it kinda irks me if I wanted the game for single player.

I waited a super long time for a good racing game on PS4 and when I heard GT Sport was always online even to play what little single player content it had I didn't even bother with it even to this day when it's probably 10 bucks.
