    And if Pagan wasn't enough, then we got A... A... Asc... No, sorry, I can't even type it in the same post as the word Ultima... But this one was insidious. It looked awesome at the start, a nice proper 3d environment, and then, it becomes a bad Zelda game on pocket-sized maps... I could deal with Pagan as a side excursion, but this? Ugh.

    Might and Magic got hit pretty bad with the curse of episode IX too although X seems to have managed to go back to some of the roots. Haven't played X yet, but the wife enjoyed it. Wasn't enough to fix the damage IX did though, so the series is pretty much dead now apart from being a vague franchise name.

    Like having Dark Souls at #14 is any better? It wasn't even on the PC until years later when enough people bitched, and the version we got was a pile of shit port that a guy fixed for free within a week.

    But yeah, shit on a RPG that actually has RPG game play and such. Sounds legit.

    Hey, you've just said it yourself, I didn't imply any certain person but talked in general sense, as in not every user is interested in general gaming. On RPG Codex or ever.

    I know that Sykar mentioned "Beamturd", but I'm gonna specifically say that SOD stands on its own as an example of a developer that had no fucking idea what the original Baldur's Gate was about to such an extent that it even stands above what happened to Fallout. It was like that band in the 70s or 80s that burned a million in cash on tv, or a beautiful hollywood actress who brutalises her face with surgery, or something right up there with the latest Star Wars films - someone so out of touch, so inept, and so isolated in their own bubble, that it's something beyond incompetence and spitefulness.

    It should be held up and identified as an industry example. An example of what happens when a bunch of cunts get their hands on an IP. And then any further evaluation would be a total waste of time.

    Well, at least Dark Souls doesn't bore me to tears, but it's way too high on the list, but at least IMO Dark Souls belongs to that list more than Derp Age Origins.

    Well, at least you backed up your shitty opinions with a solid supporting argument.

    No offense pal, I've never even played dark souls because I don't play chink games. That being said if you're seriously trying to defend fuckin Dragon 'kill this identical mob of 5 enemies over and over and listen to our shitty storyline' Age origins, you're probably a moron.



    I havent read your previous posts on this thread so If I'm wrong then ignore me, but if you like Da:o go play in traffic.

    Ah, yes, the newfag shows his retardation. What a fucking surprise.

    Mods can't fix that kind of garbage. Even if they could, it would not be a credit to Bethesda.

    There can only ever be one answer to the thread topic: Ultima.

    Obligatory "Fuck you, EA!"

    It's more of a cRPG than Dark Souls--which got 104 points from you retards.
    "Hurrdurr, it let's you put points into stuff and you get weapons and armor and it looks cool."
    It's a fine fuckin' game but I would never consider it a cRPG. If we're using such loose standards then Sleeping Dogs is also a cRPG.

    Let's put it this way:
    Zer0wing is trying to argue that the synthetic dick he prefers to choke on is better than more authentic dick, you're say that the more authentic dick is bullshit compared to a dick you've never sucked, and I'm just trying to argue what qualifies as a dick for you both to choke on at your own leisure.

    Also all those failed JA2 sequels from Strategy First & Mistland (there was a total of 3, I think?) which ended up stripped of JA references and released as Hired Guns. And "JA online".

    "He was borne in a gutter by a sickly prostitute in the year of a great famine and plague... and it was downhill from there" summarizes the history of Jagged Alliance in the third millenium perfectly. I can only assume it's karmic punishment for 1.13.

    Hey, I enjoyed the Fallout 3 games. Lots of free roaming fun in FO3 but much more of an adventure game it seemed than an RPG with real skill checks and C&C. If you approach it that way it was a worthy entry in the series, imo. Regarding that clip from Gothic 4 posted above, yeah, looks terrible but at least you COULD fall to your death in the game when virtually all so many other games at the time placed those invisible force fields all around the edges of cliffs and high places so your poor retarded character couldn't fall to his death. Fuck that shit. Takes me right out of the world. There should be danger or tension EVERYWHERE in an RPG unless you're one of those Stardew Valley/Harvest Moon homos who just wants to farm, date virtual young people, and live placidly. On the other hand, I don't want to play an RPG where the danger is TOO hyperbolic and you end up getting your 1st lvl character killed by a barnyard chicken. Fuck that shit.

    I'm nobody's alt. I'm just not going to let unabashed bullshit and ignorance go by unimpeded. I came to this forum to talk about cRPGs. I didn't expect a bunch of old cucks to be indulging in masturbatory opinions.

    I had to double check that I did't forget to post a reply here. You posted essentially exactly the same thing twice in a row which literally changed nothing.

    Congrats.

    Daily reminder to all obshitian soy-fanbois: FO3, FNV and FO4 are the same sort of utter shit. Gameplay-wise and writing-wise.

    Fallout series take the cake, but not in the way you think.

    People keep pointing out Fallout3, Fallout4, and Fallout76 as the desecration.

    They tried so hard to forget the terrible turd that is Fallout Brotherhood of Steel.

    THAT clinchs the deal~

    Fallout is like that girlfriend you had at HS (1). The relation went well until college (2). Then she testing the water outside with a local, nice cowboy, though she dropped him quick (FTBOS). Another such testing is the town drunk (FBOS) which she tried hard to pretend he doesnt exist. Then she met a playboy (3). That playboy had a nice cousin but that one went away quick (FNV). Two more rich husbands from THAT famous eastern family, one after one another, are such specimens of wife beaters.
