      Making a better game doesn't sell. I think novelty is what sold and the free publicity that came with it, sequels flopped because despite being objective improvements they weren't novel

      Any game where there is no predefined solution to puzzles or obstacles presented. Anything the player comes up with with the tools they have is "correct."

    normalhomosexuals sperg about how they can't play it like Doom Eternal
    the closest to an imsim getting mainstream success these days was unironically cyberpunk and normalgays got filtered by it
    the other side of it is that a lot of common imsim design philosophies were coined by LGS to make up for restrictions in replicating freedoms tabletop games offered. it's incompatible with the "cinematic narrative driven" slop that normalgays eat up

    You have to make 3 times the level for different routes, every area. And then when you are done, the game does not sell 3 times as much.

    Human Revolution isn't that good of an immersive sim, so next time choose a better picture.

      I can't agree whatsoever with Bioshock being above System Shock in any way.
      And putting Infinite and Invisible War on there is stupid. Those games are just shooters, little to no aspects that make it an immersive sim

    Probably because they are shit and always have been.
    >dude look at all this silly stuff you can do lmao!!
    It's all noise with no signal. An immersive sim can never be a masterpiece or even well-designed. It's just a lazy dev flinging shit at a wall.

    Because they don't exist. This is a common zoomer misconception. They are simply confused by the concept of a first person game with good atmosphere

    I feel like part of it is that it's hard to advertise an immersive sim. It's hard to showcase gameplay that consists of reading emails and using environmental storytelling in strange ways to solve "lite" puzzles that entices normies and doesn't show too much at the same time. The only thing I don't like about Prey was how they showed that you can use the shapeshift power to get through small holes and how the foam darts can trigger terminal touch controls. I wish I could have discovered those for my own, but if they didn't show that what would they have shown.

    Awards and comunity loyalty are worthless. Only money maters. Line must always go up and immersive sims do not produce enough immediate sales for the cost it takes to make them. On top of that it is often extremely hard to monetize them, their only real options are things that will generate immediate community backlash or more content that costs to much to make for the profits they generate.

        Anon, the whole modern American economy is based on gambling and addiction now. The system broke a while ago. Just look at the shit fit corporations are throwing now that the government told them that they cant force minimum wage workers into non-compete agreements. There are no industries or niches to be filled, manufacturing was all outsourced, and research is a financial black hole. All they do is extract as much as possible from everyone while trying to steal from each other.

    General audiences got too dumb to think by themselves. Instead of thinking about how they'd resolve said conflicts IRL, they just that the game has only one solution and don't try anything else unless they're 100% it'll work.
