    @Minishdriveby: I need to revisit the original one of these days. I played it when my dad had it--he was really into gaming when I was younger, but kind of stopped--but I barely remember it anymore. ...

  • mastermetal777 posted a message in the forum topic What's So Great About Half Life?. on the Games Discussion board

    @Maverick6585: Most fans hold it in high regard because of its then unique approach to storytelling in video games. It was a game that let the environments and actions tell the story as much as some o...

  • mastermetal777 posted a message in the forum topic Most disappointing game 2014 so far. . .?. on the Games Discussion board

    @ZombieKiller7: GTA V is great I think. Thief doesn't feel anything like its predecessors or like a well-designed game. And Watch Dogs is something you just have to play to figure out whether you lik...

  • mastermetal777 posted a message in the forum topic Cyberpunk 2077 : sooo ... what happened ?. on the Games Discussion board

    As excited as I am for this game to get started--love cyberpunk style games---you gotta figure that CDProjekt Red is still working on The Witcher 3, and so we're not gonna hear a peep about Cyberpunk ...

    @Minishdriveby: I'm working through Half-Life 2: Episode One as we speak. Gotta admit, as much as Half-Life 2 disappointed me, I'm finding a couple of things that were improved upon in Episode One. N...

  • mastermetal777 posted a message in the forum topic Fallout vs. The Elder Scrolls - A War. on the Games Discussion board

    @Lulu_Lulu: Because both styles of gameplay are fundamentally the same? Well that's not entirely accurate. The VATS system makes the Fallout universe a little more powerful gameplay-wise than the Eld...

  • mastermetal777 posted a message in the forum topic Why do people have wrong idea that Survival horror = Scary. on the Games Discussion board

    @wiouds: They're everyday people put into bad situations, much like horror movies do. To me, that doesn't make them pathetic, but relatable. I don't relate to a heavily armed soldier, so I can't feel...

  • mastermetal777 posted a message in the forum topic Questions about the Dark Souls universe. on the Games Discussion board

    @reaverspistol: Not too much is known about the lands beyond Lordran/Drangleic, I'm afraid. There might be hints throughout the game, but the majority of the lore you find is specific to these cities...

  • mastermetal777 posted a message in the forum topic Why do people have wrong idea that Survival horror = Scary. on the Games Discussion board

    @Lulu_Lulu: It is an excuse, and a very deliberate one at that. You see, horror games are, and have always been, meant to make you feel powerless so that overcoming the monster (or yourself, if you e...

    Here's a video about horror games. Specifically, why horror games have awkward mechanics the majority of the time.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lawxkSB13J8

  • mastermetal777 posted a message in the forum topic Anyone Else A PS3 Collector? Or Have A Large Collection?. on the Games Discussion board

    Damn. My collection only fits one of your shelves, I think. I had more, but I sold a few after they began to bore me. When I have more room to work with, I'll build up my collection once again.

  • mastermetal777 posted a message in the forum topic John Romero's Making a New Shooter. on the Games Discussion board

    I'm happy for this. The guy helped create Doom, one of the greatest and most influential games ever made. Hopefully he doesn't disappoint like he did with....that game that shall not be named.

  • mastermetal777 posted a message in the forum topic What are you currently playing?. on the Games Discussion board

    Tomorrow, I do some recording of my upcoming Let's Play of the Mass Effect trilogy. Yes, I plan to do all 3 games (but not the DLC for ME3 as I do not have the funds to get them) all in one go. Will ...

  • mastermetal777 posted a message in the forum topic Is it wrong apart of me wants to see EA crash and burn?. on the Games Discussion board

    I would rather them do a complete upper management overhaul, as well as doing the same to the marketing team. The only things EA needs to do is stop rushing their developers and advertise their games...

  • mastermetal777 posted a message in the forum topic Have You Ever Been "IN THE ZONE" ?. on the Games Discussion board

    @Lulu_Lulu: While fair, I think you're only limiting yourself in that regard, but I'm not gonna tell you how you look at games. You can keep studying mechanics, and I'll just study the game as a whol...

  • mastermetal777 posted a message in the forum topic DA: 2 VS DA: 3 Combat. on the Games Discussion board

    DA 3 will include elements of both games in its gameplay. They're bringing back the tactical commands, party management, and overhead camera from Origins while allowing you to get into the action as ...

  • mastermetal777 posted a message in the forum topic Have You Ever Been "IN THE ZONE" ?. on the Games Discussion board

    @Lulu_Lulu: Well then you're missing out on half of most games when you only study mechanics. I study every single aspect of a game, both individually and as a whole.

  • mastermetal777 posted a message in the forum topic Have You Ever Been "IN THE ZONE" ?. on the Games Discussion board

    @Lulu_Lulu: And yet I'm one who still holds unpopular opinions amongst my peers about my tastes. I dislike some of the most popular games in the franchise, and like some of the most reviled. I'm not ...

  • mastermetal777 posted a message in the forum topic Have You Ever Been "IN THE ZONE" ?. on the Games Discussion board

    @Lulu_Lulu: It's not all about numbers, but arguing that with you is a waste of time as you don't even consider that JRPGs from back in the day weren't all about the numbers game like MMOs are. Picki...

  • mastermetal777 posted a message in the forum topic Have You Ever Been "IN THE ZONE" ?. on the Games Discussion board

    @Lulu_Lulu: They give each monster different specs with each game, so it's not the same fighting behemoths in Final Fantasy 6 as it is in Final Fantasy 10. And it doesn't just work the first time. I ...
