I'm not one of those guys who snorts at new games and only plays stuff from the past, but there really wasn't anything that interested me this year. I feel like E3 2015 ate up most of the anticipated news for the future.
I'm cautiously optimistic about the new Dead Rising since I like the original. I'm sure it will play exactly like the last game, but fan service damn it(and not the sexual kind).
The new Zelda does look fun, but I doubt I'll buy a console for it.
this year seemed really short and seemed to have very little new games. Every conference besides Sony had nothing interesting. I have high hope for Resident Evil 7 because of the fact the director is the guy who made Revelations, the only good resident evil in quite a long time. New Spiderman is interesting because of Insomniac. Most games I wanted info about I already know enough about. Only games I'm looking forward to are Shenmue 3, No Man's Sky, Resident Evil 7, Yakuza 0, God Eater 2, Star Ocean, Deus Ex, Cyberpunk 2070, The Last Guardian, Hot Shots, Syberia 3, Wattam, and Ni No Kuni 2, but none of those were even really talked about besides RE7 and Last Guardian. I honestly think games nowadays are really becoming mediocre in general.
Only Bannerlord. These are dark times.

There were a LOT of games that were talked about and namedropped last year with Sea of Thieves being something that looked new and fresh. I usually go for SOMETHING from the Nintendo conference but this year just ain't ticklin' my fun bone. I agree that I'm not buying a new console for one flagship game.
EA was hilarious as usual. Ubisoft manages to get worse and worse every year.
The new Zelda looks like everything I ever wanted from a Zelda game. Unfortunately, I don't have a Wii U.
Yeah I already started to sell my computer hardware. I got a PS3 still but it's not plugged into any monitor at the moment. I suggest checking out the 3DS or vita. I'm most likely going to mobile/handheld in the future if I get a big urge to play video games.
Man I so nearly brought a DS for monster hunter, but the console is so expensive and there's only like 3 games I would play anyway, not to mention the cost of buying games on consoles.
Well the thing about a computer.. you can us it for every day tasks, but they're really versatile for gaming now. You can play really old games, new AAA games. Even Japanese companies are porting their console games to PC now. I was shocked to see Valkyrie Chronicles get re-released.
Do yourselves a favor: don't sell your PC. Only play "old" titles you can get on GoG or pirate, emulate old consoles, use job dollars/saved dollars to get handhelds/a PS3, and start investing in select Japanese titles. Once you DO get your hands on a title, play it for a good while at your own pace. Write out what you found fun about it and what you didn't find fun about it. Once you do this for a few weeks, start pirating the odd modern game once in a while to see how bad it is; sometimes you'll find something worth holding onto.
Believe me when I say your life will be a trillion times better once you distance yourself from the advertisement bombardment of the modern market and only venture in at your own leisure.
Maybe downsize your components if you want, but don't toss out your PC entirely and don't be that guy who STILL falls for the "gaming laptop" marketing buzzword in TUH-TUH-TWENTY SIXTEEN. Also maybe learn a programming language or how to not write like underageb& like the OP of the "*Chan Essay."
>>31>don't sell your PC
Wasn't planning to anyway, I do a lot of art stuff that needs it to be decent so being able to play vidya is just an inherent bonus.
I'm just playing old games and only buying new ones that I know I'll enjoy.
I need to learn to play games slower though. I blasted through witcher 3 in like 40 hours because I just focused the story quests and didn't learn the intricacies of actually playing.
I think I'll replay that game and take it more slowly this time.
Sometimes I find that its ok to go through a game quickly like that, if you plan on replaying it. I did something similar with Dishonored; I played it though as I would normally approach a choice-based stealth game, killing or avoiding when I felt like it. Then I played through it and left no man standing, followed by killing no one.
Doing that allowed me to scout the levels out for the best path to take in certain situations to either avoid confrontation or to ensure one happened.
You could always mod it so you can get the games for free, but that depends entirely on whether you can guarantee you can get one below firmware v11.0.
I already sold off most my stuff. I'm almost done with gaming altogether. There is just one game I play now and it's on my playstation. But even that I might quit someday. I don't care to waste hours on older games anymore. I'm just getting old.
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.
This probably isn't so for story driven games, which I Havnt tried in some time, but I've found Im really mostly uninterested in playing games if it isnt with friends, now. Sometimes, not, like with, say, IVAN, but with most games.
tbh it isn't literally all western games
like for example a racing game like trackmania is just a good racing game no samurai platters involved
