How do you deal with your /arcade/ backlog?

Do you keep some time of the day/week/year to find and play things you've always wanted to, or do you act on istinct? I have a shit ton of games waiting in my room (or to be downloaded) but can't find a viable method to just jump in and finish some.

I'm the type of person that usually has a few select games that I play religiously(reflex, cs). Usually when I do play a game from my backlog, it's completely impulsive. I have 150 games combined on my steam accs.

This is a very good perspective to have. I find when I force myself to play a game that everybody else has been talking about for years, I rarely enjoy it. But naturally getting into one while I am in the mood makes the experience a lot more enjoyable.

I've got lots of games. I play what I want cause its more fun that way. I replayed San Andreas recently, because I wanted to and really enjoyed it.
Basically don't worry about it, and just have fun with the game

Yea, see, college is nothing like real life. I work with computers quite a lot, and a lot of the computers I work on are never Macs. They tend to be old Compaqs/HPs or Toshibas aka the shit you get from Walmart. And in this group, these people get Windows because it isn't that much harder to use and it comes with the computers. Plus a lot of their software is often Windows only anyhow. Again, people don't buy Macs just like these people aren't getting Alienware or the Surface Book. Too expensive.

The use of consoles especially among older people is likely from the massive PC vs Console difference in terms of games of the past. When people bring up great 90s games, a lot of people mention Quake or Serious Sam along with all those cartoony adventure games OR they mention games like Mario Bros or Final Fantasy. I mean, how many people were playing Quake on their tv back in the 90s like people play CoD on a tv now? Kids nowadays are playing Minecraft which while on consoles, I think the rise of Let's Players has resulted in younger generations of kids getting into PC gaming, kids are also playing more games on a smartphone or tablet. The next generation of gamers seem to favor more multi-function devices like smartphones and PCs over consoles.

Also;
>Apple
>fashionable

Good one, but my iPad is the least fashionable piece of tech I own. No crazy colors, overly minimalistic, the newer iPad Pro looks tacky as shit when you charge that overpriced "Apple Pencil" in the lighting port. Apple is the grandma of tech if you want to talk about nice looking devices. Now something like Asus looks pretty nice despite going for the minimal look.

>and a lot of the computers I work on are never Macs.
Don't apple have their own "genius" pseudo monopoly on maintenance?

With pc gaming having the better controls, hardware and options it's easily taking the more dedicated gamers, and mobile shit is eating up the casual players. Consoles are being ripped in half, their only real future is probably portable consoles. I dare say there's not going to be enough room in the marketplace for sony, microsoft and nintendo soon.

Apple is still fashionable in the same way a corpse sits up by it's own rigor mortis. But it is still sitting.
I'm pretty certain the apple vogue will be replaced within the next half decade. Not sure what will replace it though since there's no dominant force of such magnitude in computing, it's pretty fractured.

True, and a lot of there stuff is soldered and being based on BSD, macOS doesn't have the same issues that Windows often does. But again, the bulk of people I help often cannot afford a Mac in the first place, my main point is that Macs are pretty uncommon, only people who are students, got plenty of money or really scraped and saved have a Mac, everyone else just buys a computer with Windows or builds it and then puts Windows on it.

I agree with your second point but I feel that it's more that people want more functionality from their devices more than "casual vs dedicated". A popular casual game, Just Dance is on the PC and emulators as well as companies trying to push mobile gaming to more hardcore heights with special hardware like controllers and more serious titles makes me feel that devices that only serve one purpose, much like the MP3 Player or iPod before it are getting further pushed out.

I hope that we get tech in awesome/cute colors again. When I had a Lumia it was a pretty nice cyan color, otherwise I'm going to have to spraypaint my next phone or something. Everything is just grey/black/gold and sometimes white.

Not sure if it counts, but morphers from Final Fantasy Tactics Advanced.
The whole process of that class is so weird and arcane, which I love. Classes that are magic but feel arcane from the player end of things are my jam. So the process of:
Get a human archer, give them skills until they unlock Hunter.
Grab a Nu mou, slap them in beast master and get 5 abilities.
Now grab some relatively low damage classes or otherwise find ways to minimize enemy HP without killing.
Teach your hunter Poach and go find a monster. You need to damage them until they're incredibly low on HP. Which probably means killing all the enemies but that one monster since it's gonna take a while.
Use Poach, which has a very low chance of working no matter how weak the enemy is.
Now that it's been captured it goes to the monster bank, keep in mind it's level since it determines later abilities (So go high stat monsters, some also go 'extinct' so if you want those you're SOL). Visit the bank and you'll be allowed to play and feed your monster items. They don't join you though.
Instead capturing them gave you a soul for their monster type.
Give the soul to your morpher, it'll learn how to turn into the monster provided you got one in your bank. They gain some stats from the monster and their abilities. Morpher btw only gets monster morphs, no other active abilities so this whole process is a work around to get monsters in your party. Blue mage gets their abilities too so it's not even very good.

i've always been into the building characters with psychic energy, when possible. i am a big fan of mewto and i've made some characters in the starcraft universe. funny, i've never actually /played/ a real RPG. i always get so enthralled with making characters and the storytelling side.. and then i dunno.

I thought that Dragon Age had a really boring magic system, as much as I wanted to like that game. Planescape Torment had some interesting spells, there were even a few lore-focused ones like conjure spirit from Arcanum.

I always had a soft spot for the magic system in Runescape, too. Although I kind of spoiled the excitement of it for myself by looking stuff up on the wiki.

In terms of more original systems, as other sushis have mentioned Magicka had a neat system too, although I could never really get the hang of it. I wonder if they were inspired by the Invoker character from DotA.

I think Planescape Torment had the best magic I've ever played, and that's because I include all the random magical creatures, artifacts in the game as part of its "magic system". I really love the shop that sells bullshit magical artifacts, because there're several quests which solely consist of fetching random magical bullshit from that shop and using it to solve whatever bullshit magical problem has occured. And that shit with the wizard what curses that one dude to always smell bad no matter what and what also curses you to have hiccups forever? Very cool magics.

I don't know how many of you play this, but I'll set up here for now.

picrel: I thought the limited drops would end with the last update, so I panicked and spammed 3-1 pretty much a couple hours before maintenance. ~10 runs in, I finally got my first non-Chitose AV and my first foreign ship! hoping to get Fletcher or Isokaze next as I'm lacking in anti-air DDs, but that drop probably sucked up my luck for the month.

how's your base going, sushi?

This.
Maybe it's because I grew up without access to video games, but I think there are some seriously fantastic games out there. A lot of them are pretty old as well, which makes it very cost affective to enjoy a good game. I have been playing a comfy mix of Quake and Hotline Miami at the moment, and I have to say, I feel like I could play these games over and over.

Interestingly enough, another game that I have taken to playing is Overwatch. It's a pretty bare game in terms of content, and before trying it at a friend's house I had not interest in it whatsoever, but it really shines in playability. Nothing is more fun for me than digging around the internet for strats and ways to handle different situations, and than implementing them in the game as I go. A lot of games will have me play for a bit and than switch to something else when I become bored, but I could (and have) play overwatch for hours and hours.

I haven't bought Western games since January 2015 (with the exception of some old games on GOG) and am probably done with them for good unless things dramatically change in the future. Japanese (non-doujin) games have some problems too, but they're minimal by comparison.

But even if new games stopped appearing tomorrow, there'd be still be enough existing ones to last for a lifetime.

It really is tough to take that first step. I've had this same issue and all I can say is I'm glad I decided to put myself out there. Still godawful but I'm improving slowly.

I know it's not that simple due to issues like no locals or people either being obnoxious and/or don't play the games you want to play etc. so it can be irresponsible to say just try it out you'll have fun. Also it usually costs money, not a lot but not a trivial amount either. But if you ever feel like doing it, I still suggest taking that opportunity.

I'm new here and things seem sort of quiet so I thought I'd make a thread anyone could post in pretty easily: old school favourites.

Everyone's got a game they loved from a time gone by, so let's talk about them!

Here's one of my all time favourites to start us off: Crystalis on the NES. It felt so much smoother than any other game I'd played around that time and you were so free to travel around, the magic was interesting and the world was constructed so well.. I almost wish I could forget everything about it so I could experience it all over again as if it were new.

It was sure a good looking game for the system too.

Even if Nintendo got almost everything wrong with this console starting from horrible loading times to censoring content, I still find it extremely comfy - the menu music, the forgotten games, the whole experience still has something other consoles do not have.

What are you playing right now? I'm going through Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE. I was mad when they showed that it wasn't gonna be a true SMT x FE back in 2015, but a colourful, cool and comfy adventure in modern Tokyo with an idol show business setting is good too.

Maaan I miss the Virtual Console. The New NES/SNES Online is such a step down in terms of content. They must have lost lots of publishing rights with the new generation since all they publish on Switch is minor publishers like Jaleco. WiiU VC had everything, even Turbografx games! Probably with the rise of mini consoles everyone thought it was better to make their own collections/thing and to ditch Nintendo's service.

Even with all the DLCs there's some big differences between games. Among them is the revamped battle mode, the 200cc time trials, the extra characters such as king boo, inklings, etc. and the comeback of the double item box and also the ability to carry 2 items at the same time. Regarding items there's the feather and the boo which aren't in the WiiU version and there's also the difference in stats between karts and characters, so instead of there being like 8 different "tiers" or so there's like 13 on the switch.

And there's the thing known as firehopping or something like that which seemingly was removed on the switch so even the way to move through stages might have been modified a bit. So yeah, they knew what to add to make it worth it to buy it on the switch.

Ah yeah, with the sudden realization that it sold poorly people starting collecting the games and consoles for the "game collector" badge and coupled with corona the prices went through the roof while they started becoming more scarce. And with them killing the eshops of some regions and removing games nobody would fault you for modyfing the system I guess. In any case hope you can get to play soon!
