When did legendary game franchise releases officially start getting disappointing across the board? Did it start with MGSV, and then spiral with the dawn of the diversity hire cancer-corporations and F2P AIDS raping zoomer brains from birth?

    FFXV might've actually been the official kick-off point, though anyone with some intelligence who saw Nomura's name attached knew it was gonna be a shit-show

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but RDR2 might be the only great AAA franchise release since 2014 that wasn't ass on some level although it was ass on some levels

    Ace Combat was a discredited IP within Bandai, nobody thought it would sell. They had to rush the game and cut a lot of shit, which is the reason why some of the finer points you mentioned are lacking.
    The game sold many times over the expectations so now they even got their own studio. Prospects are looking up for Ace Combat.

      It was simply the natural course of things. Ace Combat had to die first to be reborn again.

    Yeah, it was very hit or miss, but I still think AC7 is fucking amazing.
    And like you said, the soundtrack is pure kino.

      everyone posts daredevil, but lighthouse was much more kino and soulful for me
      felt like, for the first time, trigger had a theme-song, leash off, and all eyes on him from the get-go. that mission is beyond kino

        >everyone posts daredevil
        Yeah, well it was an incredible song and incredibly well sync'd with the mission and you play the entire thing out, so yeah of course. But I think the final song, Hush, is my personal favorite and grew on me over time. I couldn't appreciate it as much at first because I didn't actually hear the whole thing in the fight, but to me it's just a really incredibly emotive narration of a final human fight against AI apocalypse, a duel against an implacable foe with it all on the line.

        But the game is so full of great music including what you picked that I think a lot of people just find it hard to pick from 10/10 music and daredevil is the obvious 11/10 that everyone heard all of. And the moment when the shield drops and it shifts to maximum gear is unforgettable. Doesn't mean Archange or Hush or Lighthouse or lots of others weren't excellent but that was just a moment of genuine kino.

        Trigger's themesong is the main leit motif, which Daredevil, Battle for Farbanti, Faceless Soldier, Hush, Charge Assault and many more instances of it play whenever he shows off

    I've loved this series since the PS1 days. This entry, however, I could not finish. I'm trying to figure out why but what went wrong with this one? It's not a bad game but it's not excellent like the other entries.

      for me it was the story. too much stupid bullshit sucked the soul out of the missions.
      90% of the missions themselves were K I N O, though. The flight through the ravine into the base attack, the Sol Squadron fight, and missions 18 and 19 felt like what Ace Combat was originally made for

      I've heard PW is the closest thing out there to a new AC game, but that it lacks the soul of one. Fun gameplay experience, but not jet-anime

          I only play single player games on console, as hunching over a desk for anything but work is a life for bugs and retards, and won't buy an Xbox because there are no games and Microsoft is cancer.

                So on par with AC7 then. The game that forgets about Mage Squadron... and then Spare Squadron...

        Either PW or the PS2 games, /aceg/ over on /vg/ has a good emulation guide in their OP

        Alright, I'll see if I can emulate the older ones with my potato pc and take a look at PW after that
