post #2131 of 9059

I'm guessing you were never a fan of the NWN series?  The combat in TW was pretty typical for a PC RPG of its time, Difficult Mode + WSAD/Mouse.

 

EDIT: Those modes are definitely needed.

 

I had both TW and Origins.  While the dialog in TW can be a little dry, Origins can be a tad overly done.  Between both, I thought TW had a better overall story/plot.  Felt more modern/up to world, and had a more realistic sense of conflict.

The combat is not so great in an easier difficulty setting, not much going on.

 

EDIT2:

Witcher one was harder than 2. Witcher 2 was like ezmode. Geralt does sound a bit monotone in his line delivery, but since I think the rest of the VA was good, I assume it's part of the character(I have yet to read the books).

 

The menu system is awkward for about 3 minutes. Ass Creed still stands out for me as having the worst user->game iteration of any game I've ever played.

AC3 was more like a movie than a video game, watched my younger brother from beginning to end lol.  The menu system was alright I guess on a console, I didn't get very far on the PC (was way more fun watching).

 

 

Anyone see FFXV?  Square Enix may roll it out on PCs given there is a high interest.  Will probably take some effort in re-engineering the interfaces for an optimal PC experience.

Now that I'm 10 hours into Metro Last Light, I can definately see it being a better game than 2033, ESPECIALLY if you play on Ranger mode. The need for conserving ammo, lack of HUD, and just everything makes the game so raw, and so personal.

Anyway, I think its a great game. Just me though.

I feel exactly the same. About 12 hours in and I'm really enjoying it.

I guess my only beef is sneaking around when it involves other humans. However, I let it slide in this game as it's how I'm choosing to progress my characters narrative by never killing humans, only creatures.

That allows me to put it in the role playing category rather than the game mechanic one.

I like the intensity when all hell breaks loose.
The AI could use work, but what game doesn't?

BG/BG2/Icewind Dale/NWN/NWN2 never needed a action oriented interface since so much was based on the classic D&D combat system. Still some of the best RPGs ever.

I LOVE SNEAKING AROUND.

The whole reason I'm at 10 hours is because I keep doing it.

THE First game SUCKED in sneaking. This game is SO FRICKING good at allowing sneaking and all that. I'm playing on normal so its REALLY easy to just gun them all down. But they say that Ranger mode is how its meant to be played. And I can see that. All the problems I had with Last Light would theoretically disapear and make it AWESOME gameplay if I played ranger mode, but I suck so I can't.

Yeah, the AI system, how animals just hit you and then teleport through you and then behind you.

So just picked up Metro Last Light from the Steam sale. Downloading now. Can't wait to play. I caught it really close too because it was on flash sale for 40% off and the deal only had 3 minutes left when I bought it. Glad I logged into Steam when I did.

Most people do love the sneaking. I just have too many years of gaming that I suppose I'm burnt out on it deadhorse.gif.

I'd just like to see games that require a variety of strategies. Most of the time, there are missions in games that require sneaking of some sort. I'd like to see devs require scenarios with other strategies involved. 

 

I like the human/moral factor that this adds by choosing not to kill. Apparently Dishonored is similar, so I'm waiting for it to flash sale on steam to pick it up. I'd love to see a game with a good moral factor/choices placed in. I know a lot of devs are headed in that direction. A number of games are already doing it which is good. That is one of the immersion factors that I think gaming should really strive to add. Most gamers have zero qualms about killing someone, when in reality that is not something people do lightly, even in war. And that choice can deeply affect a person mentally. If they could ever find a way to add somewhat similar features into a game, so that gamers would be forced to feel the consequences of their actions, I would be so stoked. 

 

I'm not sure yet, but I feel like that's slightly where metro is going allowing me to simply knockout enemies. I also notice that when I listen to full conversations there is a white flash of the screen, so there must be some kind of human factor points involved there. Maybe it'll chance the gameplay. Unfortunately, it'll probably only mess with the ending. I'm sure I could google all this, but I prefer to now know and be surprised in my games.

Yeah... I picked up Last light from another sale. Quite worth it for what I paid....

Basically the beginning of it sucked a bit but after a while, it got really good.

If you played the first game recently, I recommend playing on Hard first. Normal in Last Light is not the same as Normal in 2033 in my opinion. However this is only if you want a challenge, otherwise, normal is fine.

Ranger mode is not recommended for anyone on first play through.

I love my sneaking.

Like Crysis I guess where you could do it your way? In LL, you either sneak or blow them all aprart. In Ranger mode, sneaking is really the only option, and dealing headshots with silenced pistols or knives.

I always kill....just me.

Dishonored was $10 and already on sale before? Dishonored was a REALLY good first person sneaker and sci fi game.

Did you get it from Best Buy for 1 penny? Also this is how I handle games that involve sneaking:
