            I agree that "the dark souls of blank" is a dumb buzzphrase, but this is just a problem with journalists though.
            imagine the "halo of party games" or "third person half-life" or the "fortnite of rts games"…

            these arnt indictments of a game’s quality, theyre just shorthand that passes for insight in the eternally juvenile game journalism sphere.

            >dark souls of ______
            there was a period of 2 months after dark souls released where that was used unironically by journalists. It was only ever mocked and was poorly received. It’s been 10 years now and it has only ever been a shitpost. If it never existed there would have just been another shitpost to take the place.

        I love it and have fond memories but probably Halo. The big console shooter, two weapon limit, regen "health".

        As much as I hate the fanboys and as much as I greatly prefer other games, Dark Souls was a force of good in the industry. It challenged the broader appeal, hand holding, dumbing down of the industry and showed that traditional and difficult games still had a place. It succeeded where games like Ninja Gaiden II and DMC4 did not.

      Probably one of the first online shooters, because it created a terrible culture that persists today, and just gives all the worst people something to group up around. Or at least the first game to use chat, since it just turned toxic and stayed toxic for decades. Whatever the big Xbox live game was.

      Kaizo mario for being the virtual genesis of intentionally shitty to play games that was interpreted as "skills". As well off as starting off a whole generation of faggotry of retards that think their ability to tolerate shit is a positive thing.
      So many garbage games would hilariously get "filtered" as the trash they are but manage to survive from retards that can use it to pretend their some elite caste of gamers and not just sunken cost fuckers that can’t accept that they aren’t actually as cool as they think they are.

      Arkham Asylum’s ‘freeflow’ combat and detective vision essentially ruined a great deal of subsequent combat systems and stealth games.

      Without freeflow, developers wouldn’t be falling back on highly tethered animation routines which undermine spacing/attack ranges. Arguably the influence of Souls rectified this trend, but it originally always was the norm with old character action games/beat em ups.

      No detective vision would force games to more naturally highlight things in the environment, and put greater emphasis on level design in allowing enemy routines to be visible/avoidable. No seeing through walls in Tenchu.

      A lot of people don’t want to admit it since the game itself is great, but its popularity shifted the industry into focusing on high budget AAA movie games. Studios quit pumping out experimental and innovative AA titles to try and replicate MGS’ storytelling instead.

      I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again: Depression Quest

      If Depression quest never existed, then Zoe Quinn’s Five Guys fiasco would have never happened. Which would have never spurred gamergate. Or at the very least, feminists wouldn’t have Zoe Quinn as a martyr to rally people against gamergate. It would have been focused squarely on the press, without all the claims of sexism.
      And without gamergate, the hyper progressives wouldn’t have gotten a foothold on the industry at large. And thus, we wouldn’t be dealing with all this forced diversity crap.

          Gone Home was a minor thing. I think most rational believe that artists should make whatever they want. And with Gone Home, it was simply a game that someone wanted to make. It got some flack from some edgy kids who were against gays and "walking simulators". But it would have blown over.

          The whole five guys thing was out of control. If depression quest was a controlled fire, then five guys was a maniac pouring gasoline on the fire, and trailing the gas toward dry wood.

          >if it wasn’t quinn it’d have been someone else
          Perhaps so. but if the target were say a normal man caught colluding. Then the press wouldn’t have cared as much. And neither would all the shitposters. Becuase it wouldn’t have the same sizzle as a woman allegedly caught using her pussy for favors.

          Without Zoe, there would have been a small flare in interest, and then it would have died out like so many stories before.

            No, nobody cares about zoe, she’s quite literally the least interesting thing about GG besides LW 2 and 3

      Pong, because the game industry wouldn’t exist.

      There’s no game that has had that level of influence on the industry.

      Definitely Uncharted. As far as I’m aware it started the movie-game genre and the "no fun allowed" type of mindset, although the later should be more attributed to the Last of Us. It’s the complete opposite of what games should be.
