      The first section is annoying, but if you can make it through that, the second section is only frustrating because of the timed switch puzzle with the electricity and the direction of the fan moving the water, and the centaur creature. You can fight it, or you can bypass it if you walk along the ledge by the barrels and break into the hatch in the middle of the thin ledge behind the falling water.
      After the tzimitse centaur, everything looks the same, so it's hard to know where you are and where to go, right?
      Just follow the numbers.
      Are they going up? You're going the wrong way.
      Are they going down? Keep going that way.
      I'll give you that it's a pain, but it's not that horrible.
      I've been through the game multiple times and I only got lost the first time until I clued in to the numbers.

    I'm playing it on and off for the first time and there are a lot of sections which are shockingly bad.
    I assume the vast majority of people who like it played it when it first came out and haven't really played it since, and as a result just filtered all the crap parts out of their memory.

            in general the anarchs besides jack and maybe nines all had sticks up their asses the entire time because the story railroads you into being vaguely associated with la croix.

            i think the reason i dislike them so much is because i've met these "agree with everything i say or you're literally hitler" types in my life before both in and outside of Ganker.

              To be fair Nines is completely fair to player character and will even go out of his way to save (YOU) twice and teach you stuff (free dots) twice as well. Compared to the prince who basically gives you a suicide mission while not even being a day old and it helps paint the anarchs as somewhat decent, even if they're clowns

    Played this game recently for the first time and I thought it was alright, though it definitely didn't live up to the expectations I set for myself after hearing people talk about how great the game was for years.
    Only played through it once, though, and as a Nosferatu. Read online and saw that many people didn't recommend playing as Nos for a first playthrough, but it didn't really feel that much different than how I thought it would be. The only real difficulty I had was in Chinatown where I had to meet the guy after seeing his daughter get kidnapped, as talking to everyone (except for one old guy) got them scared of me, and I didn't realize that there was a hidden elevator for a long time. Chinatown also felt really empty, quest-wise. Though I understand that the game was rushed a bit. Santa Monica was the best part of the game for me, and it got progressively more and more dull as the game went on.
    I don't know, maybe I missed some amazing thing on my first playthrough and didn't know. I know that there's some Heather bitch that follows you, but I never ended up meeting her again after saving her in the hospital.

      I could understand saying fuck it and playing Malkavian if you were familiar with the setting beforehand or were well read enough to understand the poetic and mythological references a lot of the dialogue makes. Nosferatu though actively locks you out of a tonne of choices and overworld dialogue. Very stupid move to play it first.

        I went into the game blind, having not experienced any other VtM-related media before. Didn't know what Nosferatu was I did the questionnaire thing to create my character, and I only read about Nosferatu not being recommended after finishing the game.
        Just wondering what choices playing a Nosferatu locks you out of. Aside from prostitutes and girls at bars and clubs not wanting to talk, I didn't really notice that many missing options (aside from seduction-related things).
        I'll probably play it again later, after my Vtmb fatigue is gone.

          It's mostly that the play style encourages you to use the rather bland sewers to move around which can get repetitive compared to the hubs. Doing so can often cause players to miss certain events, the most common one is never meeting your ghoul. It's not that you're guaranteed to miss things, just that you're more likely to miss flags when playing blind.

            Oh. I only used the sewers for travelling between different levels or for shortcuts. You can literally run out in the open, almost right next to people, and it doesn't really affect the masquerade penalty thing. I've even scared a couple npcs a few times, and still not no penalty.

            I dont think it's confirmed you and your sire had sex before they turned you.

    only thing i was really spoiled on was the nosferatu caves and that the combat really sucked and the game dipped in quality after the first two maps, but i was pleasantly surprised by how those parts of the game are actually kind of ok. not as great as the rest, but still pretty good.

      It's not that vampires can't enjoy sex, it's just there is almost nothing that comes close to the pleasure you can feel drinking blood, so why bother with it? Those characters named all have alterior reasons for still liking sex.

      Jeanette loves doing what's disgusts or angers Therese, Thinbloods are much more human and VV loves being a sex object and ising that to influence people. The player are a new fledgling and still retain old habits and Bertram is a pervert.

              It's a trashy hotel, there's no guarantee those used condoms are yours.

              Characters do have pleasure drives, it's just that drinking blood is a way more intense driver and typically usurps sex in the minds of Vampires. You could just as easily say it's immature to expect actual sex in a setting where it's very tame compared to sucking blood. Which is how it's typically viewed in the setting.

                And yet the characters are rarely if ever concerned with bloodsucking and getting available humans to drink. Most of them are concerned with power struggles and nothing else. The reason why sex drives are interesting is simply because sex is more human and more interesting than drinking blood. It gives the characters depth and options for emotional and psychological vunerability and it also makes them seem more human and believable, it gives them more personality.

                The actual reason why it's missing is that the tabletop creators didn't want a bunch of ERP degenerates,that's it, that's the reason.

                Dude the table to game is from the 90s and was made to pander to edgy goth nerds. Early art features shit like characters wearing bdsm gear and dressing like strippers. There's plenty of sexually charged shit in the setting. Those vampires that do have sex typically are trying to cling to aspects of their past humanity. But that's the thing, it's their PAST humanity. Because they mostly aren't human anymore.

    Give music and speculate best way to do contemporary setting for VTMB or best way to do sequel. I just want more good vampire bros.

    I think ideally vampires would move away from the counterculture or very binary groupings of vampires (the nosferatus are leather wearing sneakies and gangrels like to run through the woods). I think you could tread on deus ex territory with conspiracies and go create a feel of endless conspiracies invoking a sort of dread of the invisible hand that vampires has on the world. Humans politics and zeitgeist is only ever swept in larger powerplays by vampires.
