What are some eras of gaming that you've stopped feeling nostalgic for? (kbin.social)

As I've gotten older as a player, I have found myself dropping some eras of gaming that I used to be nostalgic for. One of them is the 8-bit era, the NES days. I have played some of the best that system had to offer and I will never say that system didn't have any good games....

Even though I grew up with 8/16bit I’ve never really had any nostalgia for it apart from a select few games.

I didn’t own a PS2 until about 2006 when I lived with my girlfriend (now wife!) but even then it was replaced with an Xbox 360 the next year.

I’m a Dreamcast and GameCube kid and I do love the PS1 but just haven’t got any nostalgia for PS2.

You won’t believe what happened next…

No one likes post like these so please give more context next time.

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

I haven’t played it yet and every time I get reminded of the game it’s because of something like this…

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

It wasn’t really an issue while the console was still alive though, at least not until very near the end at least. It would have became a massive issue if the console continued though.

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

I think the 3 main reasons why are lack of DVD player, lack of 3rd party support and then the player base losing confidence because of the Saturn.

DCJY podcast Ep.100 is great for this and has an interview with Peter Moore that gives some details.

SWH is excellent so the same and more please.

I’m really looking forward to Harold Halibut.

I avoided the demo last month because of spoilers and have barely read or watched anything about the game in anticipation.

buying games on GOG (directly on our service or via Luna) will give you the best of both worlds – enjoying them on Luna’s cloud gaming service, as well as via offline installers or GOG GALAXY.

This sounds pretty good but not really something I would use GOG for unless it is included in Amazon Prime.

Citizen Sleeper, one the the best games, not just indie.

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

Developers change so much that it is hard to have a favourite anymore.

SCS have been going for a while now and are doing a great job with ETS2 and ATS, supporting the game and releasing/updating DLC regulary. It feels like a true passion project for them.

Most of favourites are small indie developers and games like Live For Speed, Software Inc, Ostriv.

If you want a game that runs poorly then check out Squad

Something definitely seems off about the 2070 if it is struggling at 1080p so don’t give up yet. You might still get to play if you diagnose what’s wrong.

Payday 3’s concurrent player count is 287 on Steam

Yep, that’ll do it… Those are absolutely awful numbers.

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

I don’t really have a strict one or the other preference anymore.

Nintendo 1st party stuff I always buy physical, Dreamcast I collect for so that’s physical too but for Xbox I buy mostly digital when on sale. I guess for Xbox its different because I have Gamepass (the £1 upgrade deal they used to offer, still 18 months remaining, but I won’t renew) so I haven’t bought a new game in like 2 years now. The there is PC… My games are all over the place!

Plus with a family we just dont have the space to keep everything forever that we buy anymore.

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

I don’t like either company (but in this case I do side with Epic) but I do like all the drama they bring.

B0NK3RS, (edited )
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

Death Stranding had me all over the place. Also the first season of Telltales The Walking Dead.

Basically anything with kids can set me off and I find somewhat difficult nowadays as I have children of my own.

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

It took me a couple tries with DS too. The first few chapters don’t do it justice but once you get past that it’s just amazing.

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

It’s quite an open question. Most games I play are “one and done” even though I think most people go back to them. Even with replayability it doesn’t mean that you have to and I’m happy to leave things be once the story is over.

Mafia trilogy sticks to the story and will take a decent amount of hours.

Inside is short but fun.

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

Any kind of microtransaction or paid content is a real turn off for me nowadays. I really couldn’t care less about your loot boxes, battle passes and “games as a service” so I will just play something else.

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

Unlocks and cheat codes are now DLC…

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

Integrated graphics have improved massively so what are we talking? 5600G or HD 630 can play GTA V for example.

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

I used to collect various systems and games but nowadays don’t have much left apart from my Dreamcast stuff. Cost, storage space and just the risk of something becoming unplayable mean emulation is my go to now.

PS1 is probably my most played system, I used ePSXe for years but recently switched to Duckstation and so far so good. Some of my all time favourites are GT2, Future Cop LAPD, Devil Dice, Colin McRae Rally 1/2.

If you want something to play on Dolphin then the GameCube version of Skies of Arcadia is excellent.

What adventure games do you recommend?

pretty much the title. i have played most of sierra, lucasarts and telltale catalogues so if you are suggesting one of their games i’ve probably already played it. it doesn’t have to be a copycat, homage or in the same style as these companies’ games either, just that it must satisfy the vague definition of being an...

I like the Runaway series. Well its been a long long time since I played but I remember them being good.

@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

Planetbase, it doesn’t take long to figure out but I’m trying to unlock the other more challenging planets at the moment which just takes time.

I’m on the lookout for challenging survival management/city building games if anyone can recommend one? Something like Banished, This War of Mine or Frostpunk.

Do you find open source games interesting/good thing as a gamer?

@games I am a game developer working on game called Mushy Score. I decided that my niche would be to create open source games. I think these could be helpful for developers or teachers to teach about games and how they are made. Most open source games are small game jam games, but there are few “real games” that are open source like 0 A.D. and Doom. As a non-developer do you think open source games could be good thing?

B0NK3RS, (edited )
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

I don’t have any input as a dev but I do enjoy finding, learning about and playing open source games. There is something about it that I find interesting and although most of them are not great I check back every so often on my favourites.

Here is a list for anyone interested

Is it April 1st already?

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

I wasn’t expecting much but this news is disappointing. Hopefully the remake and live-service game are completely separate from one another.

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

Adding micro transactions after release is bullshit. There should be rules where it needs to be in from release or not.

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

TF2 before F2P was one of, if not the, best multiplayer games. It just wasn’t the same after that and good community servers died out.

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

They really went all out on this but the gameplay just looks so boring…

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

Flatout is one of my favourites and has an awesome soundtrack. Also was one of my first PC games and didn’t realise that was 20 years ago.

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

That’s a odd stance to take. How would you be a thousand times happier if consoles didn’t exist?

Consoles still have their place in gaming and to think otherwise is somewhere ignorant. Just live the best of both worlds like the rest of us and don’t get so wound up!

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

I’m about to blow your mind…

You get to decide.

You decide where to (or not to) buy and play the games you want. Like I said there is no requirement to stick to 1 platform and you honestly sound so wound up by this opinion I’m astounded.

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

We’re talking video games here. Nothing else.

I’m pretty sure it was Paperboy on one of those Tiger Handhelds. Looking them up now brings back memories.

Mass Effect 2

I started it about a year ago so finally have gone back to finish it off. Normally I play paragon but I’m going (mostly) renegade this time.

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

I was going to try Harold Halibut but I’ve read that it contains noticeable spoilers so haven’t bothered.

Homeworld 3 is next.

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

I’m looking forward to this the most! It’s going to be a long year.

What are some hidden indie gems nobody knows about?

Which indies did you discover and would love more people to know about? I’ll start: The Pale Beyond. Not sure if it’s a hidden gem tbh, but it’s such a good story rich game. I laughed, I cried and felt the characters struggles. If you like story rich games/ choices matter, check it out.

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

Ostriv, an 18th century city building game. I believe it is just the single developer based in Ukraine.

Live For Speed, this one isn’t quite “hidden” but is overlooked by many as it is not on any storefronts. Sim Racing history and still going strong today with the 3 original devs.

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

In general anything with crafting and/or excessive loot. I find it very boring and especially when a game is advertised as “survival” when in reality it is just a crafting game with no real threat.

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

Subnautica is almost an outlier to the rule but the ocean triggers a phobia so I can’t play it. The Long Dark is probably the best example of a survival game with crafting that I do really like.

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

I tend to agree but then I also have moments where I get lost in the world for a few hours and it’s great. Death Stranding is probably my favourite where I walk everywhere and I spend an hour doing one delivery!

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

They are all just ways to “do things I can’t in real life” though. I have no interest in murdering people but I enjoy driving and 18 wheeler across Europe or flying all around the world.

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

I do find it kind of odd that some people only play the latest sports games and nothing else. Also NFL Blitz on the Dreamcast is one of the best games and I’ve never watch a game irl.

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

It looks good but could do with more speed!

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

I haven’t played the first game for a long long time so I might be off on that one but RS2 was everything the Wii was supposed to be.

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

SoA is excellent but the random battles are too much. I’ve played it so many times over the years but never actually completed it!

B0NK3RS,
@B0NK3RS@lemmy.world avatar

GRID (2019), there seems to be a lack of decent arcade track racers nowadays but this is a good one.
