So You Think Your A Gamer


Lollipop

Recommended Posts

Tell me what games you are playing! I need to know! Well not really, but I'm interested. Lol

I play video games daily and it's a common way for me to unwind from the stress of the world outside of the interwebs. So I wanna hear about the games your playing and why you enjoy them. And they don't have to be recent releases or games your actively playing at the moment either. If you wanna tell me about your favorite game of all time, that's fine too! Lets all talk about the games we enjoy and cherish, and your favorite aspects about them.

And let's try to keep the hate to a minimum. I'm not saying you can't disagree with what other people like and share that opinion; or that you can't say what you didn't like about a game, but let's try to keep it positive. 

Oh and let's remember to have fun too! I'm sure we could all use some fun positivity right now. I know I can.

I never got into Spyro, but I have a bunch of friends that absolutely loved the games growing up. I played a couple times when I was younger and remember I liked what I played of it, but that was a total of like 2 occasion and I had no idea what I was doing. Lol.

Final Fantasy I know i fair amount about but i never played 6. That's the one with Zidane right?

@Lollipop

growing up, I loved them, and was ecstatic when I could get them on the switch. It was my dream since I was a child to be able to take these games on the go! Trust me, I hear you. I've completed the originals years ago, and working on completing these. My skills have changed a lot since I sat playing them when I was 6...21 years ago.

Oof...tough to say. Not there yet. I have never played a FF game, and while I always wanted 7 first cause of how big it is, or 10 since Its come up a lot recently (also... Kingdom Hearts has most of these characters), an online friend told me to play 6 (or 3 on the SNES) cause it was his favorite, and the best. Guess a lot of people love it.

Oh, right. Im also currently playing Pokemon Ruby (gen 3). Ive been going back and playing the older games. Red I made a team of pokemon I thought were pretty strong (not broken, and based on types), Silver I found a video on the best team, so I did that and tweaked it. Then, I had the idea to have online friends choose a team for me, and thats my challenge this time. Also tried that when I got Lets go Eevee. Had friends choose my team. Those friends were easy. They allowed me to evolve. Ninetails, Gengar (though, Haunter cause tradin on switch is hard), Raichu, Venusaur, Eevee, Garados. Ruby is...well... Mudkip, Swellow, Aggron, Slaking, Gardevoir, and...Milotic...

I'd have so much to say, I don't know where to begin. I always lived in the wonderful world of JRPGs and thankfully not just any. All those good old beautiful games from snes to gameboy to further. PS1 and PS2 were my golden ages of gaming with games like Legend of Mana, Legend of Legaia, Star Ocean and Threads of Fate, all the way to PS2 with Mana Khemia, Xenosaga series, Final Fantasy and so so many other ones. I could never speak how many I've played, the number is way too many to speak them all. Do I have a favorite? Hard to say... With thousands of games, I really don't know. All of these legendary moments and battles will probably stay in my memory forever, though. And this is not the only genre I enjoy. Other rare games like The Last Journey, Spyro, Phoenix wright, 999 and so many others. I guess I do live in another world but I don't mind. It's a beautiful world filled with memories unlike any others. Just speaking my experience anyway. People may say I've wasted my life away but I disagree. I've lived full happiness. :3 So anyway, yeah... This is my story. (Yes, total and shameless reference to FFX.)

My little fantasy, a girl adrift, Eternal Senia, WoT Blitz, MHW (rarely).

When idk what to play or currently burnout playing same genre over and over (RPG most of the time since its brain draining although addicting), i turn to The Sims 2 and 4. Fully modded of course.

Been playing Dark Souls Remastered recently, my first Souls game, but it is absolutely amazing despite it's flaws. I've been addicted to it for a while now. 

My all time favorite games would have to be Mario and Zelda OOT on the original N64. As well as the first Spyro. I have such a connection with all these games that I can't even stand to listen to some of their music because of how much it makes me cringe with nostalgia. And I use to play Kingdom Hearts, even though I didn't know much about FF all that much.

@Jtcookie I love Soulsborne games! They are challenging but fun. I'm a huge fan of Bloodborne. I got the platnium trophy for it on playstation. I even got into Code Vein.

So i understand dude. I love those games and they relieve a lot of stress for me.

@Quotation I really like OoT, though I have to say for me personally, I loved Twilight Princess the most out of the Zelda series.  I think breath of the wild may have taken that spot though.

KH is a great series and fun to play, and since the FF lore doesn't really any part in the games storytelling, you don't need to play every FF game to get the KH storyline.

@Elena Ichinomiya I played A Girl Adrift before. It was really cute, but lonely feeling. I liked it. I play The Sim 4 here and there. I like that they keep adding stuff to keep it interesting, even though you gotta pay for it.

I an really into Monster Huntet World, though I have played much lately. I really love that game though. Been MH since the PSP games.

@Xaciel See, Alien: Isolation was scary as hell for me! I don't do well with horror games and never make it very far in them. The thing is...I love horror games too! I'm just a little bitch and chicken halfway into the beginning usually. 

I prefer horror games that give you a weapon and hate the ones where all you can do is run. There are some games that have interesting lore and mechanics that make up for not having a weapon like the clock tower series, and I like those. But then there's games like Outlast that I just can't play. Isolation does give you a gun after the beginning, but it gives you a gun at the same time it introduces the one thing in the game you can't kill! Lol I did have fun with it though. I was terrified but I liked it.

It’s actually “you’re”, but don’t let this grammar desperate ding dong offend you.

I’m a competitive Apex player. I don’t mean I play for a team or anything, but I really REALLY enjoy winning and fight hard to get that win. And then I enjoy discussing what went wrong during our fights. Mostly 5th parties cause it’s APEX.

BUT, I started my gaming career on Pokémon. All of the Pokémon! Pokémon, Pokémon Ranger, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, and Pokémon GO. Definitely a huge nerd right here, but I can get away with it cause I just turned 20. Nyahahaha.

After that, I stayed to my nerd Nintendo games, got to Wii Sports. That’s right, I was addicted to Wii Sports as a kid! Sue me. No, but I actually played Guitar Hero on my Wii. Still can’t get past medium. :’)

I’m hooked to my PS4 now. I play many games from Outlast 2, Last of Us, Apex, Persona 5, Call of Duty: WII (And BlackOps 3), and NieR: Automata. A wide range sure, but I like to call myself a professional Overcooked 2 gamer despite deleting the game to make space for Warzone-

But for the past few days, I hooked up with old friends and have been playing mobile MiNeCraFt and Identity V with him. Identity V is a unique, kinda, game. You’ve played the multiplayer Friday the 13th game, it’s similar in mechanics, but the design and story is much different. I’m not sure if it’s unique, but if your phone has the guts and you’re into slight horror, definitely give it a try.

End of rant I swear.

@Reyna I don't mind the rant. It's nice to see people so enthusiastic about the stuff they like. I would like to apologize for my occasional poor grammar. I have ADHD and I often get ahead of myself when typing. I usually reread most of what I type to check for missing words, letters, and grammar errors. But I didn't think to check the title. So thanks for pointing it out so I can fix it.

As for games, I pretty much liked or loved everything you mentioned, except for my absolute fear of Outlast. Lol. I loved Nier Automata! I'm currently playing through Persona 5 Royal and so is @Muramune. I'm loving it so far!

I played Identity V around when it first came out. I would say it plays more like Dead by Daylight than Friday the 13th. It has pretty much the same mechanics but with much less blood and gore than Dead by Dayllight and is kinda cute but creepy. I love DbD so maybe I should redownload Identity V. I saw they had a Persona 5 event and was gonna download it then, buy never got around to it cause too busy then. I should really redownload it. Actually I'll probably do that today.

Well I have been playing Dragon Quest XI and Kingdom Hearts 3 recently and am enjoying those but there are two games I have played that I would recommend trying out and they are

Timesplitters future perfect and Kingdom under fire Heroes

Those two games are really fun to play and I wish they got the fame and love that some other games get as not only were they good games with interesting characters and story but they had better porn potential than quite a bit of the other games released when those two games came out

@Lollipop yeah. Bloodborne is my favorite too but I don't have the patience for platinum trophies usually. I also own code vein and while I do think it's a bit clunky, with parrying mostly, it was a fun game, with a fun story and plenty of eye candy.

@Jtcookie I don't usually trophy hunt. I'm not really much of a completionist. I have a crap ton of games I haven't even finished yet. But there are a few games I make an exception for when I decide I'm going to get all the trophies for this game. Bloodborne was one of them. I loved that game so much and explored the whole thing from top to bottom. It was my very first platinum trophy.

Code Vein got a fair bit of complaints and the DLC has been a little lackluster, but I love ed the core game. I didn't use parrying much cause I'm just used to rolling out of the way of stuff because of Bloodborne habits. I did a fair bit of blocking. I'm also a God Eaters fan, so coming from that series to this and seeing that they share the same world was awesome. Plus I absolutely adore Io! She was so cute and awesome!

I loved Nier Automata!

God I wish I could say the same. I absolutely loved the original Nier, and in my opinion the Drakengard series (of which Nier is a spinoff/sequel of sorts) is a piece of pure gothic art in my opinion, and still the best two dragon riding games to have ever been made somehow.

I wanted to love Automata so much, but ended up rage quitting out of pure insult after about 80 hours of repeated disappointments and built up scorn (though I won't g into details here to keep with the general positivity of the thread). God that game feels like a bad, messy breakup for me ^^;


As for games I love, though, Final Fantasy X was one of my very first RPGs and remains in my absolute favourites list to this day. An absolute work of beauty that I have been enjoying replaying for the sake of my wife lately (even if that fucking chocobo minigame can go die in hell lol). Another all-time favourite has to be Star Ocean Till the End of Time, just an absolute epic of a game with such a living, breathing world full of so much history and lore (I am honestly positive that it is the setting of someone on the team's long-running DnD campaign because of a few telltale elements in the bestiary, moveset, and general worldbuilding) and, while it's not a perfect game, it has the single most beautiful title sequence I have ever seen. Literally brings a tear to my eye most times i see it.

I in general have a great appreciation for well-crafted, immersive, character-driven RPGs, so I can sing the praises of Lost Odyssey (or the true Final Fantasy 13, as I call it, considering who made that masterpiece), and to a lesser extent Persona 3 and 4 (i completely adored the games on par with FFX when I first played them, but as I've grown up I've noticed some rather problematic aspects of the series that leave something of a bitter aftertaste in my mouth now as much as I still think the games have some great qualities to them).  And while it's not exactly an 'rpg', I absolutely adored FF7: Dirge of Cerberus and is just about the best blend of RPG mechanics and third person shooting I've ever seen. I was a huge Kingdom Hearts stan up until 3, but with what a narrative trainwreck that thing was (IMO anyways) I will seriously not be bothering with anything else in that series.

As for beloved non-rpg games, I actually really like the mousou (Warriors) series and their similars haha. Samurai Warriors and Sengoku Basara (even the original Devil Kings in the west) are just plain fun and so balls to the wall with their depiction of sengoku japan.

I also adore Journey. god that game is a work of art in basically every way, top to bottom, aesthetics to story to narrative.

I just recently got to play Okami HD for the first time (though i'd been aching for it since the original game first released) and I have to give that game a glowing 9.7/10. It is nearly perfect and the only consistent fault I could find with it was its treatment of female characters and how they were always pointlessly sexualized (at one point the game even making a -really- tasteless sexual joke out of a character who had just freaking -died-), but besides that an absolutely beautiful, huge, emotive, inspirational game that I'm happy I finally got to experience.

Metal Gear Rising is also probably my single favourite Platinum game.

I could go on but this is a wall of text as it is haha

Oh yeah, and I am currently playing Way of the Samurai 4, and that game is just such pure dumb fun.

Have you tried doing a Nuzlocke? If not I recommend it. If you don't know what it is here is a good and funny video of what it is. It's like pokemon hard mode.

 

I do know about nuzlockes, yeah. I attempted one a few years back, but...eh. Maybe someday Ill try again. But, I did enjoy reading people's comics!

Also, Zidane? Final fantasy 9
