    You don't have to like the game. It's not your thing, that's okay. I was just responding to your criticism of the game, but since you haven't really played it there isn't that much to talk about. So let's leave it at that.

    Performance-wise, or changed expectations? I haven't seen any improvement past MK2.

    Dearest comrades workers and peasants ; not forgetting factory owners, crypto currency investors and land owning gentry.

    Very much so I am liking the ' missiles ' to and fro about a top 10 of games.

    I would put forward that the ' Golden Age ' of computer gaming was 2000 + and - say 5 earth years.

    2005 onwards games improved graphics, lighting and so forth. The basic genres were already there.

    Nowadays to make things seem fresh and new a mish mash of descriptions are displayed to a potential buyer. (sellers)

    1st person action adventure game with RPG elements in an open world survivalist encounter set in a dystopian near future where society has fractured into various factions. Do you play as a rogue TV journalist in a hidden studio ?

    A disgruntled army major who believes terror forming is the way to go.

    The leader of the Yippies that grow grains and organic hallucinogenics and believe in flour power.

    Or any of 12 other pre made characters you can upgrade.

    It always amazes me to see a registration date of something like 2007 with hardly any posts then the person posts.

    You need to play more games, since you only have 6 names on a 10 list.

    I really can't do another list. It feels like my brain is going to burst open. Ones I know for sure non-Fallout related...


    1. Earthbound - I love everything about it.
    2. Shadowrun (SNES) - still the most unique freaking game around due to the way it was designed. Awkward combat but good.
    3. Castlevania 4 - this is the easiest, best looking, best playing game in the series. I used to try to speedrun it as a kid and often died at the gold bat.
    4. Sunless Sea - they need to rip this game off more often. One where you are going around the PA wasteland as such would work.
    5. Civilization 5 - because I have not got into 4 yet.
    6. MGSV - not due to the game itself but due to Snakebite mainly.
    7. Total War Warhammer - just played 1 so far but Total War is always varying degrees of good.
    8. ?


    I want to list various RPG's I played for the first time this year all the way through like BG 1 and 2 but I have not replayed them enough to know if they are my favorite game if you know what i mean. I also want to add more nostalgia to the list like Resident Evil but I can't replay those apparently I stopped at 2 hours in.

    Well four years ago and some things have likely changed.
    For what I value the most of games (theme/story/tone) my top ten is probably something like:
    Fallout
    Fallout New Vegas
    Shadow of the Colossus
    ICO
    Planescape: Torment
    Disco Elysium
    Dark Souls
    Bloodborne
    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
    Nothing else really fits here, maybe STALKER Shadow of Chernobyl or Call of Pripyat? But eh that's more just atmosphere and tone than theme and story

    As far as gameplay:
    Quake
    Underrail
    Mortal Kombat (2011)
    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
    Dirty Bomb
    S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat
    F.E.A.R.
    Halo 3
    Hunt: Showdown
    Prey (2017)

    Honorable mentions:
    Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines
    Fallout 2
    Halo 1 and 2
    Doom 1 and 2
    Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal
    Spider-Man 2
    Wasteland 3
    Starcraft
    probably something else.

    Being a nurse in a Cephalopod Hospital must be hard graft. Some decent games you mentioned although I thought F.E.A.R was shite.

    The only dick I suck is Sean's, and that is purely heterosexual in nature. Since you don't know who that is due to you being a wannabe Orderite, I will now go laugh at you while I play with my asshole.

    I am not Sean, even though they all said I was.

    Your original post linked back to old posts as you know. Maybe I put the cat amongst the pig dens.
