    They made gaming a chore.

    Games used to be a simple concept, and fun to play. I still play Tetris more than anything else by a huge margin. Imma go play a round right now.

      They made gaming a chore.

      I couldn’t agree more, every damn game looks exactly the same to each other, a huge ass RPG like with tons of sidequests which can be or not good and with cosmetic upgrades or paid DLCs.

      The last four games that I have played follow this formula:

      The Witcher 3

      Batman Arkham Knight

      Breath of The Wild

      Nier Automata

      Currently I have only finished The Witcher 3 and Batman Arkham Knight, and got “tired” with the last two, currently playing SIFU and god it feels very fresh… Although I’m stuck at the “git gud” phase.

        Saying stuff like Witcher 3 and Nier are “just a huge ass RPG with tons of sidequests” has to be the least intellectual take I’ve seen in years. They’re both groundbreaking games with (at the time) unique systems never before seen. BoTW was also a breakthrough in that it was the first mainline Nintendo game to embrace modern advancements, and did so without sacrificing much of their traditional fun-oriented design.

        Are most AAA games complete unsalvageable garbage? Sure. But to classify the few exceptions as equally bad is disingenuous - ESPECIALLY when most of the games you listed are actually fairly old.

        “every game looks exactly the same” proceeds to list 4 games that could not be more different from each other lmfao. You have to be trolling.

          I swear I’m not, I didn’t mean to offend anyone by listing these awesome gems, but I still stand my point that they share too many similarities, and it is worse when you look at more games which, might not be as good as the ones listed (I mean, all those who share a ridiculous amount of sidequests some rewarding, some absolutely not, DLCs which adds up more “filler” and skill threes, because every damn game has to have you read countless of stats and such to improve the MC).

            Bro they don’t share ANY similarities. Saying they’re similar because they all have “lots of sidequests” or “DLCs” is like saying Lord of the rings and Arthur Christmas are similar movies because they both have elves and an older mentor figure. I’m sorry but that’s just beyond ridiculous. Especially since you don’t seem to have any idea what their DLCs contain. And no I’m not saying that because I like all of those games, I only ever really got into botw, the other 3 either didn’t catch my attention or I tried them and couldn’t get into them, but I still know enough to know that calling them similar in this context is delusional, the only thing they vaguely share is the open world genre. They are extremely different games you couldn’t have chosen more different examples if you tried, I can think of a ton of non open world games that have more similarities with each.

        Until VR came along I had long lost interest in modern games for that very reason. Everything was the same. Nothing I hadn’t already played. VR gaming has breathed new interest for me with gaming. Currently 150+ hours Into the Radius.

            Do a little each day with comfort settings on. I don’t know anyone who wasn’t able to get through that stage within a month. The moment you feel sick though, stop. Wait an hour or two before continuing.

              I’ll try to play around with the settings, that is like the last thing for me to try…

              The worst feeling is when my character jumps or falls, that is when I feel the most sick.

                It was the same for me when I got started. I would suggest sticking with one game at first too. That way you get used to the motion of that particular game and your brain will eventually know what to expect when you jump or turn (actually you should start with snap turning).

                My gf used to get horribly nauseous at first. After a few weeks she was killing it every night in population one (a game with a Lot of crazy motion). Good luck!
