Open world games fucking suck Anonymous 02/03/2023 (Fri) 21:25:28 No.388 [Reply]
Back in the day I could tolerate it, it was s small niche and occasionally it was alright to play some and have fun. But now everything is an open world game, and most of them have nothing to do in that open world because they tacked it for the sake of it, to justify you buying a PSwhatever. vid unrelated

>>5194 It wasn't, that's the point, gotta numake it. I'll take gears of war over any modern franchise. That being said, I don't need a shitty open world slop.
>>5188 I had no idea there was a Gears 4 and 5. It really was just aping Halo the whole way even down to having an ending at the third game then dying and continuing to shit its pants for years afterwards.
>>5513 It was "the emblematic western 7th gen game".
I don't get the appeal of "open world" games at all. When a game is advertised as "do whatever you want, go wherever you want", that's marketing speak for "we were too lazy to actually organize all this stuff, so here, you waste your time wandering around aimlessly and do our job for us". I'm not the game designer. It's your job to design your game, not mine. I stopped buying open world games years ago before they're a waste of time, a fucking chore to play, and had to give up series I used to love because they fell for the open world meme. What is the appeal of wandering around an empty map full of copy-pasted content?
>>8039 >do whatever you want, go wherever you want The funniest thing is, that's it not. If you look at hotmaps of where people go in sandbox games (I remember examples of Skyrim and some Farcry posted) it's literally all the same places. 95% of people all go to the exact dame places via the exact same routs, so like 60% of the "open world" is left completely untouched, just a useless waste of time and resources that could have gone in polishing the mechanics and adding extra details.

Squeenix is losing money. I won't be surprised if they're bought by Soyny or something. Really sad state of things thinking back on their illustrious work in the past. FF16 won't be a big hit that's for sure and Forwoken undermined their brand really hard.

>>7822 >It's still complete shit I disagree. Though it's very lackluster and disappointing in many ways, it's the last Final Fantasy that anyone actually wanted to make over at SE and that people were excited about.

>>6345 But doesn't it look like the negro is using the keyboard as a hitting rock like a primordial ape, not knowing what to actually do with it? A very accurate depiction tbh.

It seems common to say these were poor transitions to 3D graphics, but I think they still hold up today. Especially SA1, its open-ended world and impressive early online features are a standout.

Fuck man, I miss when cutscenes were a reward for overcoming a challenge and beating a portion of the game. Whether they were state-of-the-art CGI or in-engine, they always had an immense impact on you when you actually deserved them. Despite a lot of games even having simple short stories they became iconic and legendary due to this, each and every moment burned into memory. Now compare to all this modern slop with HUNDREDS of hours of cutscenes literally nobody remembers, where it's all about muh story, story, story with game as an afterthought.

>>5715 I miss the pre rendered cutscenes, they always felt like a true reward. I remember spending hours and hours unlocking all the endings in Tekken. Nowadays even if they make those you can't even tell them apart from in game graphics so they are redundant and don't mean anything. It's another one of those things that will never come back. https://www.yewtu.be/watch?v=lKHaMeTcVr4
>>6024 Spending days to level up and finally manage to beat a hard boss at 3AM in the morning and get a major new story beat with a brand new jaw-dropping CGI cutscene... Zoomers will never undrstand.
>>5715 What was cool about cutscenes in pre social cancer, pre jewtube and even pre broadband era, is that you couldn't really easily rewatch them. Some games had cutscenes theaters but not many. So you really only got one fleeting chance to see them, especially final and secret cutscenes, without having to replay a portion or the entire game again. This made them very special and ultimately iconic. Nowadays fuck, people just go and watch final, secret and whatever cutscenes on jewtube without even beating the game.

>>7163 Alyx a cute.
>>7167 >>7166 I will clarify. First, the design shouldn't force you to be in the situation where you have to be lectured in a room for 30 minutes to progress the story and told exactly what to do. >what were they supposed to do, make her killable in-game? Like I said, you shouldn't be in that situation in the first place. Second, why not? Just make it a game over. At least you would have the freedom. The first game made pretty much every npc killable. All of the scientists and security guards were (if I remember correctly), even when they were talking. There was a beginning exposition part where you couldn't, but it made sense because you were still doing your job at that point.
