Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Great plot? That's a big change from the no plot at all of the old Wizardry games. I kind of dug not having one, but I can't really call a good plot a deterrent.

    Any of you guys remember the NES game Shadowgate?

    It was like a first person adventure game.

    And like all the choices were death traps.

    there was a "puzzle" in Shadowgate where you broke one of three mirrors with a broom

    and one sucked you into fucking space

    that game was designed to make you feel bad

    Yeah, it's very plot driven. Probably because it was made in Japan.

    A town called Duhan was decimated by a disaster called the Flash, and turned it to a fog-filled wasteland. A labyrinth appears beneath the city, and you're tasked to go find the Queen who vanished into the underground.

    I think the second room had a hellhound or something.

    I think I usually just died there.

    I hear that Monster Rancher lead to an unlockable in Deception(the only other Tecmo series worth anything*), but I've never played it.

    *Fatal Frame's okay too

    Now I'm looking up all of the old games I used to enjoy back in the glory days of psx/ps2.

    So many good games. One day I will own used copies of them all.

    Buying games used makes you literally worse then Hitler

    I never did finish that game, but I was having all kinds of fun with it. It was so damn charming and silly.

    At one point the game actually says "It is ominous."

    I think I just got stuck on a puzzle somewhere and gave up.

    Considering the ones I'd want to buy are no longer being made, I'm not sure how I'd get them new.

    Unless you have a magical source of unused psx games that no one else has ever heard of.

    If so, I must know.

    obviously you're supposed to wait until they re-release or remake the game so you can pay the company directly

    Of course! The answer was so obvious. I shall wait for the re-release of them.

    If you need me, I'll be in the corner holding my breath until these games come out.

    rent's enthusiasm is always fun to watch but sometimes he is like a dummy in a rocket car heading towards a brick wall

    big smile on his mannequin head

    doesn't know what he's in for, he's just happy to be there

    that said Nier is pretty great and definitely different enough to be worth a try

    Nier is not the best motherfucking game, that is just Rent going into shock from playing a JRPG with some decent writing for a change

    it's more like

    okay i will have to use punctuation for this one

    It's more like games such as Silent Hill 2 or MGS2 or, I dunno, Killer7 (Suda51's entire library could probably apply), an off-kilter, not entirely baked game that nevertheless manages to impress because it's got vision. Like, you know how most JRPG's today have pretty much no point beyond "let's show off this newest crop of goofy outfits" and so after the halfway point it turns out the villain is also the Pope who is also your best friend who is also your sister and you're fighting in a dream which is somehow the reality of the collective unconsciousness and a few Nietzsche quotes later the game fades to credits as your characters smile emptily into the screen? On the other end of the scale, you've got games like the above, or hell, Drakengard, which was a godawful game, but was clearly all about hate and had every aspect of its design made with this in mind. Even its questionable decisions could usually be excused by tying into some grander scheme, and it makes use of its medium as a video game, which is basically required for a "good video game story" today unless you're Planescape or something.

    also its music and voice acting are pretty great and all things considered you could do worse for $20, come on, what the hell else are you going to buy, Enslaved or something

    Nier is flawed, but it has its merits. Most of it the music.

    Yeah, I was thinking "huh so an action game with rts and strategy RPG elements"
    until I read the listing.

    The Op and title did a good job grabbing people's attention though.
