    I've played all of these but Prey and I don't think they share enough in common with each other to be the same genre. Thief and Dishonored are stealth games but on different ends of the mechanics spectrum.

      I think the closest thing tying them together is that they reward creative thinking and are mechanically rich enough to make a fun sandbox of interactivity. It's difficult to actually make all of this not sound vague but I do think there's a common thread between these games and that they should have some distinct name.

      Immersive sim is a silly name but I can't really think of a better genre name that doesn't end up being a full sentence.

    they fall into the 'just enough complexity to make a boomer think he's good at video games but gameplay just janky enough to filter younger gamers" genre

      Surprisingly accurate. These games make me feel like I have a 250IQ when I do even the slightest bit of critical thinking. Though, to be fair, even with the bar set very low the average gamer is just too stupid to even go that far.

      I remember recommending Prey to a friend and he bought it so I watched him play a bit when I was at his house. Literally the only strategy he could come up with during any encounter was just unloading rounds into the enemies and constantly struggling with ammo and all other resources. I also remember reading on various forums how the enemies are way too bullet spongey and everyone was struggling with ammo.

      This genre is dead because even a 100 IQ is way too much to expect from gamers.

      Surprisingly adequate, especially from Thief. The mix between stealth, exploration and puzzle feels near perfect when you know what you are doing, but if you try to get into the games without learning the rules, you are going to get a very bad time.

        I do believe that gatekeeping is important to safeguard hobbies and communities against colonizers (corpos, liberals, redditors, all that filth), but in spite of this sometimes I wish it was more accessible to beginners… The Black Parade was one of the best vg release of 2024.

      >gameplay just janky enough to filter younger gamers
      Why is janky gameplay such a bad thing among zoomers? I managed to finish Fallout 1 when I was about 14 or something, and I'm gen Z. It wasn't that difficult and the "jankiness" didn't bother me at all.

    They're immersive sims and I don't give a frick what the autists think. If you want to be more general they're action games that have a strong mix of elements from RPGs and other genres, but immersive sim is just so much more apt.

      Those same people believe that rock music is made by banging rocks together. It boggles the mind how people can get so autistic over a genre name, and immersive sims do this more than any other genre on Ganker

        Ganker is fricking moronic, zoomer and boomer alike, so I don't give a frick, truly. They're immersive sims and no autistic homosexual will ever say anything convincing otherwise.

      That kind of ignores the entire systems and freedom of approach aspects which are sort of the defining traits of an immersive sim. Hell I'd put Hitman in this genre and it's not even first person so the perspective is hardly the defining factor.

        Hitman doesn’t properly connect its levels, which prevents it from being one (on top of not being first person).

          How are the Hitman levels different from thief’s or dishonored’s?

      Yeah. More the same parentage (LGS approach to game design as crafting a set of interlocked ‘interesting’ systems) than the same genre.

    The «when western games tried to be good as well as innovative» genre.

    You can’t get that from the vg industry in 2024. Only White nerd autists really want to build such games, and the unholy alliance between money suits, diversity hires and feminists are just here to make a buck and satisfy their narcissism while running the industry into the ground.
