    the world design of 2 is straight up a result of development time problems, they talk about it in an interview in DS2 design works

    so at a certain point 2 is just "this is the best we can do with the time and assets we have"

    oh sure, I understand why it came out the way it did

    it's still disappointing to me and I hope ds3 is able to get back to proper dark souls world design

    yeah i just get very defensive and rush to say it because a lot of people wind up pinning it on the change in director as opposed to the different work environment he was given

    There were a lot of games on that list I hadn't played, so I did the best I could

    Everything past the first 30 is basically a crapshoot

    Rank Game
    1 Final Fantasy X
    2 Persona 4
    3 Metroid Prime
    4 The Witcher 3
    5 Mass Effect 2
    6 Undertale
    7 Paper Mario: TYD
    8 Super Metroid
    9 The Last of Us
    10 Journey
    11 Kingdom Hearts II
    12 Final Fantasy IX
    13 Mass Effect 3
    14 The Walking Dead
    15 Kingdom Hearts
    16 Mass Effect
    17 Zelda: Ocarina of Time
    18 Shadow of the Colossus
    19 Red Dead Redemption
    20 Metal Gear Solid 2
    21 Paper Mario
    22 Star Wars: KOTOR
    23 World Ends with You
    24 Metal Gear Solid
    25 Sonic the Hedgehog 2
    26 Smash Bros. Melee
    27 Persona 3
    28 Dark Souls
    28 Zelda: Majora's Mask
    30 Half-Life 2

    I'd probably rearrange it a bit if I gave myself more time to think, but that's a fairly good gut-reaction result

    one of the things that i'm apprehensive about regarding ds3 is that i feel like we've basically hit nearly peak weapon diversity in a souls game and there's not going to be anything new to get excited about there

    as long as I can rock a shield and bastard sword, I'm good

    I mean I'm only going to be using the Greataxe anyway

    My favorite thing to do is to take a specific tool and figure out how to kill anything in the entire world with it

    Still not interested in Dark Souls 3 in the least

    But I wasn't excited about Fallout 4 either, and now I've been playing it for nearly 3 weeks straight

    The Souls games are the only series in which my goal is to find the heaviest armor, biggest sword and blockiest shield and just go to town

    Every other game just doesn't do it justice for me, which is pretty nuts.

    my favorite thing about the souls games is exploring the environments

    that's why I didn't bother playing bloodborne: the setting didn't appeal to me at all

    so as long as ds3 delivers me another cool fantasy world to explore, I'm not worried about the mechanical changes or improvements much at all

    That list thing took forever.

    Almost a whole listen through of the newest Mastodon Album

    but yeah this seems reasonable I guess?

    the problem with ds1 was that the best armour, ciaran's, wasn't obtainable till late

    On the opposite end of the spectrum it did ask me to compare Dark Souls and a Final Fantasy game and boy that wasn't an easy choice either

    I did a light armor run in dark souls 1 but I never got comfortable enough with the parry timing in ds2 to attempt it there

    My list looks like something a crazy person would make.

    This is how I know it is appropriate.

    Well, the list generator had too many omissions to accurately represent my favorites but it did figure out to put Oblivion dead last, so that's something

    Funny, that's where I put persona 4. Tied with a ton of other games I haven't played.

    Like the bloodsouls and darkborn games.

    No I don't.

    The lack of Soul Reaver hurts me deeply.

    I keep wanting to do a streaming let's play of it but I can't get the PC version to stream right at all, OBS just can't hook into legacy Direct X right? It sucks.

    my secret: kill them with magic before those fuckers get close enough to have to bother.

    This thing is killing me

    How am I supposed to pick between Fallout 3 & Life Is Strange or Diablo 2 & Goldeneye

    there's too many games I haven't played in this list

    not sure if I should pick a game I have played and don't remember very fondly vs. a game I have never played, should I pick one that I think I would like more if I played it if I get two options I've never played, etc.

    it did not do a good job sorting my less favorite games and has a lot of ties
    also apparently sonic 2 is one of my tied for 10th place things but I don't recall it ever asking me to compare sonic 2 to anything

    Listing favorites of anything is a fools game imo.

    It really doesn't serve much purpose. At least not with this broad of a scope.
