    My problem with Far Cry is much the same as my problem with Monster Hunter

    I don't want to kill rhinos, or the fantastical equivalent

    The Far Cry games I've played (3 and part of 4) are definitely problematic in a lot of ways, and this is one of them. Killing exotic-ish animals for the sole purpose of upgrading your equipment is cringey, for sure.

    I enjoy the other gameplay so much, though, that I have been overlooking these sorts of issues.

    :eh:
    How many humans have you shot/stabbed/driven over in you video game-playing career?

    Humans > rhinos
    I mean
    I'd say killing humans who of their own volition are trying to kill you is less fucked up than you just going out and killing endangered animals who are just minding your business just so you could be killier

    Baloney. Rhinos charge in FC4 as soon as you walk up close to them. Sew their hides into wallets and grind their horns into aphrodisiacs.

    I don't like killing animals in games in general, even the aggressive ones. I mean, I'll do it but it's not enjoyable. If a game is entirely about that it probably won't be my thing.

    One of the things that turned me off of GW2 was the fact that there were hostile mama bears who would attack you and they had adorable little bear cubs with them who would also aggro on you. That's not fun. It's like kick-a-puppy online.

    Then there was Nagrand in WoW. God, the dying sounds of the many, many animals that the quests sent you after started to weigh on me after a while.

    I'm sure if a video game sent me out to murder hobos or something I would probably just flat out turn the game off. But the human enemies are inevitably not innocent nor are they typically just minding their own business. And of course this is the reason I essentially never play evil characters in the various RPGs that give that option. Whenever I try I typically find my interest in the game rapidly decline (a noteworthy exception is the dark side Consular storyline in SWTOR, here the "evil" path primarily involves making decisions and killing people in a thoroughly pragmatic militaristic way which wouldn't even be considered evil in any other game, and the "good" path revolves around being a derpy jesus figure and redeeming people with your carebear stare powered by your own life force and other silliness).

    Also I have the (controversial) opinion that the survival of an entire species outweighs the enrichment of some number of humans. I say "enrichment" rather than survival because typically when it comes to endangered species we aren't talking about human survival, we're talking about building a strip mall or making fake medicine for Chinese people and I frankly give zero fucks about those things and place negative value on them.

    We are as one in this.

    This is also a major complaint I had with Dragon Age Inquistion.

    I spent SOOOOOOOO long killing dogs, wolves and bears. It was just utterly endless. More like: Dragon Age: Fuck the Animalsition.

    Of the things I want in a video game, killing lots of dogs is quite low.

    And the Inquisitor's battle barks were in full effect as you were bravely stabbing rams, or whatever.

    Inquisitor hates rabbits like woah.

    So gleeful whenever I accidentally nailed one.

    Tide goes in. Tide goes out.

    Should also mention that the "rural" mindset which preaches pretty hard for the extirpation of all predators has proven repeatedly to be ecologically unsound and ultimately detrimental to humans.

    So suck it, rural people. You're wrong about wolves, wrong about bears, wrong about coyotes, and wrong about foxes. You have a great track record of not knowing dick or squat about what actually happens when you eradicate species.

    How do you feel about taking a flamethrower to a honey badger?

    before or after the honey badger kills me and then takes the flamethrower

    Too late the honey badger has killed you and taken the flamethrower

    Man I forgot how fucking dumb so much of the plot in Far Cry 3 was.

    Like, it's one of my favorite games based solely on the gameplay and some of the characters, but that whole narrative was so fucking stupid.

    wow

    You have not heard of this? They are called "alternate start mods" there's more than one. Some of them allow you to disable the main quest, while others simply make it easy to delay the start of the main quest. The one Chanus is talking about has an option to disable the main quest and still get shouts directly from the word walls (no main quest means no dragons which means no dragon souls so you can't unlock shouts without starting the main quest unless using this mod and that option).

    Playing Skyrim as a person who isn't the Dragonborn is very entertaining.

    Does it turn off all the people whispering about you being the Dragonborn?

    Or the people talking about rumors that the Dragonborn has come?

    It doesn't kill all dragonborn rumors, but no one refers to you as the dragonborn prior to that point in the main quest.

    Mmmm, good point, they aren't.

    Your point still stands of course. Also given the impossibility of this button and the intensely wicked nature of it, it almost assures that whatever entity created it is perverse and evil if not in fact the Devil.

    I would be skeptical that the randomness of the button would be truly random, and would expect worst case scenario to be the immediate or near-immediate result.

    You'd need to press it many times too. 100 times gets you decent money but that's a lot of species.
