        Understandable, it's why the '10/10 woman sucks your wiener for calling them females' epidemic is absolutely ruining the streets. Nobody can do anything because they're all busy getting their dicks sucked. I can't name a single time it has happened though.

      • 3 weeks ago

        Played Yakuza 0, liked it, was willing to give the series a shot
        Yakuza 1 runs like shit, so I tried kiwami, and 70% of the time during combat, Kiryu is on the floor, knocked down by even a passing breeze
        Yakuza 2 Kiwami was a snooze fest, but gameplay was pretty fun during combat and substories were pretty nice
        Yakuza 3 is Yakuza 3
        Yakuza 4 and 5 are both on the spectrum of 8/10, pretty good experiences overall except for the last character introduced in both games feeling like filler more than a hero I should root for, and the same old tired trope of character who died coming back to life is starting to get old
        Yakuza 6 barely made any fricking sense storywise but I enjoyed the baby shenanigans, but it became clear coming forward Yakuza was now a Cash grab series like call of duty
        Didn't bother playing Yakuza 7,8, and Gaiden, not even checking their story on YouTube
        Tl;dr
        Yakuza 0 is kino, Yakuza 1 is terrible except for the story, Yakuza 2 is solid, Yakuza 3 is abysmal and needs a remake urgently, Yakuza 4 and 5 are pretty alright, Yakuza 6 is pretty much slop, as is the series going forward

    When I was young I knew a "Sephiroth fan" who had not played Final Fantasy 7. He thought Final Fantasy 7 looked cool and especially Sephiroth so he was a "fan" but had not played it yet. This was around 2003 (Final Fantasy 7 came out in 1997, only 6 years before). Because he was a fan of Sephiroth, he watched Advent Children (even though he hadn't played the game) and played games with Sephiroth in them like Ergheiz and Kingdom Hearts. Note that he played those games AFTER becoming a fan of Sephiroth, so this isn't a case of someone becoming a fan through a spin-off. He just saw people talk about Sephiroth online and became a fan. When I asked him why he hadn't played FF7, he said "I'm waiting for the remake" (yes, rumors of a remake existed even back then). I met him again around 2009-2010, we were both young adults now, and he was still a Sephiroth fan waiting for the remake. Never saw him again after that so don't know what happened to him.

      It's actually why those videos are made in the first place. Watching them without any knowing nothing about the thing is pointless. It's like watching a movie analysis without watching said movie

      Unless the person has a deep understanding of the games and has something interesting to say, no, it is not. Majority of the time it's just homosexuals sharing their feels "I wiked dis geam becwuse..." and it's always the same, surface level insight everyone has already shared a million fricking times throughout the years, like with Majora's Mask and Silent Hill 2. You're better off talking to people in person for that. There is nothing -- NOTHING -- interesting about listening to someone drone on for hours why they like a game unless you're a bio woman.

      And that happens regarding any game where everyone is genuinely discussing it in earnest on here once in a blue moon. There's always some no-lifer homosexual trying to stamp out or derail any discussion whenever possible for whatever reason, like with The Big Catch, and it works because we keep feeding trolls and Moderation is at an all time "out to lunch" mode.

    >Fast forward 8 months
    >Watched videos detailing the plot of all 15 games to get a notion of the world setting and characters, got 5 renditions of "Remember" saved, including about 23 other pieces of AC OST saved on my phone
    Seriously thinking of buying a PS2/PS3 just to play the games, shame I got on the boat so damn late onto the party, I heard the online servers for Armored Core Verdict Day closed a week prior to Fires of Rubicon launching

        "No no, you don't get it, you can only enjoy this franchise if you played the jank shovelware games from the ps1 era, and continued to follow the series religiously to this day"
        "What do you mean other forms of mexia can bring people's attention to the series? No! Only Mecha fans from 1998 can enjoy Armored Core!"

    Literally all consolegays lmao. The current state of the industry has priced them out of owning a ton of actual good games.
    >have to buy an old ass console that's rare and worth a lot
    >have to maintain said console and refurbishers overprice their products
    >have to buy the game when a lot of games aren't even well circulated from release and can cost hundreds
    >on top of that they have to pay for the current gen + everything in it + their own internet + microtransactions in the latest slop game
    My consoletard friend keeps his old PS3/4 for this very reason.
    This is actually one of the best arguments for game preservation, the current state of the internet allows for rapid flow of information and marketing for games which aren't even sold at retail anymore. Remakes sell so well nowadays for this reason.

    I never played a lot of games (shit rig) but I've watched 100% playthroughs, lore vids and read wikis for them. Does it count?

    I blame big bang theory. It made normalgays interested in "geek culture" in a superficial way, and only in a way that allows them social credit. Interacting with the source material comes second to socializing about said material. Since they're not actually consuming the media they only understand the memes and surface level references.

    FNAF in a nutshell.
    People know all the memes and lore and theorycraft themselves into a coma, but have never actually sat down played the games themselves.

    I always thought of a small period of time where I worked at a grocery store in college where one of my young co-workers said "Persona is the best franchise ever, I can't wait to play it someday." and that's stuck with me since 2019
