That's it. Video games are officially dead.

Don't be surprised when the upcoming 9th gen exclusive Resident Evil and Monster Hunter Wilds not only runs like shit on consoles, but also will make 7800X3D to struggle with the game for no reason, while pushing even microtransactions now that they're "normalized".

          Video games are bloatware. Majority of the file size comes from audio. The worst part is that the stylized graphics of DD looks terrible in realism. They shouldn't have wasted time on polygons and went the Souls route.

                Yes and you're complaining about the one that DIDN'T destroy itself. What has gotten worse is the state of western games. Having looked at this whole dragon's dogma thing I see nothing seriously wrong and believe that if you're not actually shitposting you're a hysteric who has fallen into a meme cycle.

                >What's lost is the human element of words not written by a bot. The unruined version is games that are fun, have shit you can unlock in the game without having to pay for it, and which ship completely finished.
                Most games were in some way *unfinished* upon release. We are far more judgemental now. Used to of course be that they had to be functionally unfinished, which meant a lot more cutting for the sake of polish. Now they come out a little spazzy because it's seen as possible to work more broadly on a game up to release because of the ease of patching.

                As for the rest, no accounting for taste, you're just going to call whatever you've already decided is corrupt not fun and soulless.

                And as for unlocking, I wish every game had horse armour. I want to see you cry until you die of dehydration over that.

                >I don't give a frick about muh poor shareholders, they're fricked because they keep making moronic demands and investing like games are stocks instead of an entertainment medium and keep fricking everything up for the rest of us.
                No you don't understand, perhaps simple of me to figure people are familiar with Japanese corporate structure. Shareholders aren't empowered in Japan like they are in America. There are very hard limits on their power precisely because they are recognised as bad for what companies *do* even if technically they can move more money around.

                You're projecting. They destroyed America. Japan recognises many of the problems that destroyed our industry and works around them.

                And Breath of the Wild is brilliant.

                They both have the same practices. Please take the wiener out of your mouth, DD2 is a Japanese game that's guilty of all the things we're talking about.

But you on one hand are utterly incurious toward actual costs and income, and on the other don't even define your own standards. You're just presenting an insubstantial middle of an argument as a conclusion. "They have to spend less (allegedly, we don't know and you refuse to investigate) so therefore they owe us cheaper (to what end?)."

                Do you see why people think you are insane? I was kind of joking with the first charge of "communist" but it feels a lot more like we're going there now. It genuinely sounds like you despise the Japanese to a level which is rabid and are offended by the abstract idea of profit.

      Consoles are powerful enough that 1080p 60 fps performance mode should be no issue and the game doesn't seem to justify to run as poorly as it does, with PS1-tier NPC pop in in cities.

    Bullshit, what people are correctly pointing out is the largely useless DLC items that you can get in the game without buying them are inoffensive compared to other shit Capcom has pulled in the past. You are only b***hing about it NOW because you smell blood in the water over the bad performance issues, not because you really care about DLC, you buy games with DLC all the time like the homosexual you are.

      The only reason people are complaining about it now is because it was dark patterned for the reviewers (pretty much relegated to a line in a review booklet that most reviewers wouldn't read, because they're hacks that were hired to meet deadlines), so most people wouldn't even really know about this shit until a while after the game has already been in circulation.
      Denuvo pretty much exists to enable sucker punches like this during the launch window, since word of mouth is slowed down immensely by taking out piracy and proper qualitative judgement.

      >cost of game production goes up constantly over time

      If you ask me the braindead position is not expecting to pay more.

      Tools have become easier to use and more available as time has passed, to the point that intricate shit like porting and lighting is often left to default settings.
      If cost of production is going up, then it's due to incompetent structure, not due to the actual production costs of a game under ideal conditions.

        If it were actually getting *easier* on the whole to make games at this scale we'd be seeing more of them made faster. Even if the big old companies have accumulated crippling institutional bloat, it'd make for a great time for new companies to emerge, break away, etc.

        Parts of the production process getting easier I can see, but the amount of work required still seems crippling compared to the time of DD1.

          If games are worse what are you even mad about? This is like yelling at Hollywood.

          Still, I disagree. I think games are obviously more complex endeavours now which require a lot more work to finish. Nobody is providing evidence that these companies are doing the same total man-hours in work as 15 years ago only now the CEOs have a pyramid made of ferrari's hidden under their HQ building. It's conspiratorial thinking.

      I've never seen anyone actually defend the MTX in earnest aside from the occasional obvious shitposter

      The fact that anyone is going "but the game is fun" is defending the MTX. That's the whole point of shoving them in there, to go "well you can just ignore it" and for the company to gain a reason to shove more in because they can justify to their shareholders that it makes them money. It's like you people have no common sense in your urge to suck a company's dick for giving you the product they promised.

      My intellectual hero Christopher Hitchens taught me that that which can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence.

      [...]
      If games are worse what are you even mad about? This is like yelling at Hollywood.

      Still, I disagree. I think games are obviously more complex endeavours now which require a lot more work to finish. Nobody is providing evidence that these companies are doing the same total man-hours in work as 15 years ago only now the CEOs have a pyramid made of ferrari's hidden under their HQ building. It's conspiratorial thinking.

      [...]
      Has anybody reached the credits yet? Did you forget your moron medicine again today and start conflating western and japanese industries as the same thing again (the only way most people are capable of attacking Japan, which they desperately want to do).

      >If your hobby got ruined and you lost what you had before what are you even mad about
      You're a dumb homosexual. have a nice day. You ignore the fact that the companies made infinitely more money than they ever spent and literally outpace what books, movies, and music all make combined. No one needs to post proof because even if it takes more time, they are still making in absolute excess of what they spend, and can simply extend the development times, or cut down on marketing to still make a profit. You're a corporate dicksucker, hang a rope around your neck and die in a fire.

        I still play Japanese games. The ones that got ruined were all Western.

        What is lost in your reading of this? What do you want these people to be doing? What does the unruined version of this look like? They frick up their scheduling and planning and delay the release by a few months to iron everything out nicer. Is gaming now saved? Is that the difference between RUINED and SAVED? Or is the difference another save slot?

        You mention shareholders, are you aware of how fricked shareholders are in Japan compared to everywhere else? You, like everyone else, probably have unconscious racial and cultural animosity towards the Japanese due to latent first world communist instincts and slander them by attributing our failings onto them.

        The Japanese are never doing as much as they could to make money off of us. They are such extraordinary innovators in Gacha, but after they discovered Gacha they didn't abandon video games to make them. Gacha became a means of making more video games in an age of more difficult production.

        These people are trying very hard and doing better than most but you pick on them as the absolute worst of the worst. There's an ungodly chip on your shoulder here and you'll probably never notice because in your soul you are a chauvinistic Black person communist and you hate nice things.

          Because my situation is worse than it used to be you smoothbrained stocksucker. What's lost is the human element of words not written by a bot. The unruined version is games that are fun, have shit you can unlock in the game without having to pay for it, and which ship completely finished.

          I don't give a frick about muh poor shareholders, they're fricked because they keep making moronic demands and investing like games are stocks instead of an entertainment medium and keep fricking everything up for the rest of us.

Having looked at this whole dragon's dogma thing I see nothing seriously wrong and believe that if you're not actually shitposting you're a hysteric who has fallen into a meme cycle.

            Most games were in some way *unfinished* upon release. We are far more judgemental now. Used to of course be that they had to be functionally unfinished, which meant a lot more cutting for the sake of polish. Now they come out a little spazzy because it's seen as possible to work more broadly on a game up to release because of the ease of patching.

            As for the rest, no accounting for taste, you're just going to call whatever you've already decided is corrupt not fun and soulless.

            And as for unlocking, I wish every game had horse armour. I want to see you cry until you die of dehydration over that.

            >I don't give a frick about muh poor shareholders, they're fricked because they keep making moronic demands and investing like games are stocks instead of an entertainment medium and keep fricking everything up for the rest of us.
            No you don't understand, perhaps simple of me to figure people are familiar with Japanese corporate structure. Shareholders aren't empowered in Japan like they are in America. There are very hard limits on their power precisely because they are recognised as bad for what companies *do* even if technically they can move more money around.

            You're projecting. They destroyed America. Japan recognises many of the problems that destroyed our industry and works around them.

            And Breath of the Wild is brilliant.

              these are not ,opinions, anyone with a functional brain knows this is the truth. Its not even like its subtle, it got way way worse. FF 15 story was barely finished and it didnt feel like the usual full fledged FF game, FF was some weird game of throne bullshit that everyone hated including and especially japanese people themselves, the characteers (trainers and pokemons) in pokemon look like dogshit while the music is terrible compared to the S tier music of the first pokemons, Zelda has no more good music, looks empty and has not nice towns and dungeons which were the strength of the first Zeldas, MGS 5 was open world gameplay focused game that lacked the strengths of the first four metal gear solid games. im not saying all japanese games are shit, i played several recent jap games that were very good. But there is an undeniable decline especially with successful brands that people used to love. Even anime used to be bigger with better visuals that cost more money but also looked better, now shits pretty forgettable. Its just capitalism turning everything into shit past the point of success.

                My ISP exploded so I couldn't reply for a while.

                Of the games listed, I have played MGSV and Breath of the Wild. I consider them both to be peaks of what video games have accomplished. And I believe that all criticisms of them mostly amount to idiots mistaking the map for the territory and taking their mimetic understandings of why these older games were good as iron-bound laws for what makes a good game going forward. For example, "dungeons". What Zelda's dungeons were intended to achieve, a naturalistic encounter with obstacles and hazards to be overcome one after another, is now realised by BotW's overworld. The entire game becomes a dungeon once sufficiently elaborate ways to interact with every part of it are realised.

                This is basically a technical gimmick, not a video game people are interested in. If you think this is actually a case you are absurd. But the fact you would raise such a stupid point in bad faith might be even dumber. I just can't understand how everyone manages to be such a stupid homosexual online.

                People are so eager to make rules out of things and bind everyone and everything up to get what feels like leverage in one moment. What are you suggesting? That game quality is determined by some kind of formula? Content divided by filesize equals quality?

                >music is blander, [...] even the colours
                The intentions are naturalistic. Non-diagetic effects are kept to a minimum so that you take everything as it appears to you with minimal external signalling.

                >towns are blander, npc art is blander
                There's no accounting for taste. I like them. Their presence is far more vivid because of the contrast of a genuinely *wild* world around them. There's more of a reason to visit civilisation and make contact with people now.

        That's a dumb argument to make, you can acknowledge a game is enjoyable while believing the MTX was a stupid cashgrab.
        What do you want people to say? That because there's MTX, the core gameplay is bad and DD2 isn't worth your time at all? That's just as stupid of an argument to make. What people are doing is trying to inform people that the game has scummy MTX but you don't have to engage with it.

It's a shill line meant to deflect, no one is talking about the core gameplay when they shit on micro transactions, they're shitting on micro transactions, the need to jump to defend the game itself when this is the case is a slaves instinct to defend his master.

      >What I find funny is other fanbase talking shit
      Don't be moronic DDgay, it's not other fanbases, it's falseflagging Black folk.
      It happened with morons trying to compare elden ring to DD2, and now the same homosexuals are doing the same for the Witcher and helldivers. Don't get fooled anon.

    >Games run in 60 fps on consoles at good quality settings
    >game will have bugs due to the nature of software development, but these bugs are minor and do not frick with the game too much
    >game runs well at launch, baseline 1080p low 60fps on a 1060 and should scale decently with higher powered hardware.
