    I could not even have conceived of doing this, it sounds incredibly rude to me. What kind of asshole spams party invites to strangers? They don't know you, why do they give a shit what you're having trouble with, stop being annoying to them.

    However, then I pause, and think, wait; is this what you're supposed to do? Is it normal behavior? Is my attitude the anomaly, because generally I find these cats pretty spot-on in their analysis of game design.

    Hrm.

    I used to do that in the original guild wars a lot. Had a lot of fun.

    Guess I kinda stopped when I got older and played other games. Of course Guild Wars had the benefit that pretty much everyone in the same hub as you had the same quests, so almost everyone had the same goals all the time. In games where everyone could be busy with their own shit it feels a bit more rude to just spam party invites.

    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.

    It saved by outpost captures being one of the greatest things in modern video games.

    God they're so much fun.

    Like sometimes I'll be all stealthy and kill everyone without anybody ever knowing a thing.

    And sometimes I'll sit on a cliff and snipe everybody and be all PULL THE ALARM CALL YOUR REINFORCEMENTS THEY WILL ALL DIE.

    There are so many things I have yet to try in 4. Next up on the list is the air assault from a buzzard, with explosives.

    Is your name actually Bo or is it Beau?

    Or is it neither and I am confused once again

    Bo.

    I mean, my legal name is something different, but I've been called Bo since I can remember.

    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.

    For the Inquisition!

    I know it's a video game and you can get hung up on those things if you allow yourself to, but man that was ridiculous. And a bit funny.

    I found it happened far too often, I am surprised as I thought that play testing would have tuned it down to be a rarer event.

    That's really just one blatant example, but my general attitude in multiplayer games is along the lines of "These people are strangers, I do not know them, they do not know me, so why the fuck would they give a shit about anything I might want to say or ask?"

    Though now that I think about it, this same reasoning is typically going through my head when posting on these forums, too, but that rarely stops me. Actually, I apply this logic to a lot of shit in my life.

    Guys, I think I just discovered that I'm a misanthrope. :P

    Hrm.

    In Destiny, I was in that group of people that hit the level cap early. Whenever I was in the social space, managing inventory and bounties, I would receive tons of party and game invites. Any of those sending invites will often send 5+ invites. I never accept those invites.

    And sometimes you want to read about the goddamn Batman.
