    On second thought, those that can't get even get a relationship over the internet while wearing pink hair and posing as a girl might find this game titillating.

    This game has a market.

    There's no way you could look more pathetic than that guy, come on, it's pure Lovecraftian Horror Fantasy.

    Woah. You ever seen the approximate sales figures for the Sims franchise? If you did, you wouldn't be saying that! Shit like Mad Max has NOTHING on The Sims! Admittedly, currently the series is likely not the same cash cow it was at the time of S1-3, but still...

    I hate to be that kind of person, but can we just not give attention to this piece of garbage?
    Please?

    Unfortunately her main purpose of making that game is gaining attention.

    I'm sure Japan already has something like that.

    All the attention she's getting amounts to little more than being the butt of a joke. Although it would be funny if her game receives the same type of attention as FO4.

    For years and years, hearing stuff on the radio, it always felt like there were way too many bands out there making music. Now it's pretty clear there are way too many fuckin' people making games.

    But...uh...it is? Sims sold 125M copies to Fallout 3's 12M. We're talking an order of magnitude larger here. I'm sure you can play with these numbers more factoring in spin-offs, sequels, and whatnot, but those numbers won't favor Mad Max and Fallout.

    I believe this is the same Zoe clone SJW that showed up in that horrible indie game documentary on Steam that featured nothing but hipster rainbow twinkers who don't shower.

    http://store.steampowered.com/app/357460

    That thing is prime proof of Steam's "review" system being a complete joke. Visiting the store front would have you believe this garbage was very positively received. Click on the link and you'll see the vast majority of reviews are actually thumbs down and tearing it apart. All the positive Gamerghazi safe space reviews have about a 10% agreed rate on average.

    I want to know if there's the part where, like any sap who tries to find "love" on the INTERNET, the character is raped, murdered, dismembered, and stuffed into a fridge or dumpster.

    Because that's what happens when you meet people from the Internet, someone is getting axe-murdered. NO TWO PEOPLE ARE NOT AXE-MURDERERS.

    What if both of them are axe murderers? Can true love blossom?

    The first three Sims titles are all 10 million+ sellers. That is extremely popular. They botched it with the fourth though.

    They deserved it too. "We want the hipster audience," not even once.

    This is always a massive mistake. Everybody knows hipsters don't actually play video games. Or, for that matter, really do much of anything hobby-related outside of receiving from other sources a bunch of second-hand memes about the things they're allegedly fans of.

    Normies like The Sims way more than Fallout. Normies don't universally like shooting people or even violence in their games.

    Yes, but normies do expect some base amount of gameplay or interaction. My girlfriend barely plays anything and she hates these hipster "games" probably more than I do, because they're not fun and their meager stories are shitty compared to equivalent books, movies, and television. In fact, she hates any game that makes her sit and watch or read something for more than a couple minutes, because that's not what "playing a game" means. Make no mistake, these indie clique games are just as much the product of insular thinking and a captive press as the most insipid AAA stuff, just on a much, much smaller scale.

    Would rather play a game that has heavy atmosphere, dialogue, etc, than one that's supposedy a "real game" like the likes of Uncharted or Skyrim or something which are actually insanely high in dialogue, linearity, and overall make inventory management the sole game design idea. They've developed kind of hipster miragery to make it seem like they are the vanguard of open worlds and such though.

    Skyrim is mostly a chore, for instance, complete this, complete that, complete the other thing, one thing after another, task after task after task, with reams of dialogue, linear dungeons, and auto-fast traveling.

    You pretty much simply can't play it organically, it's impossible, thus you are the mercy of your quest markers.

    Anyway, that's one reason these non-games like Cibele pop up on my radar, if nothing else she's kind of just being honest about her lack of desire to make a ground up Mario campaign.

    Or sometimes the people who say "gameplay first" they throw things like League of Legends in my face which is basically one of the least gameplay oriented game I've played, it's basically liike Office Space, the game-job.

    Which reminds me of how I failed to beat Morrowind. I lost track of the main quest early on and just roamed the map. Then I got to final boss Dagoth Ur and he kicked my ass harder than 13 year old no life LoL player. So I got the best weapons and armor you can get in the game, I maxed out all my stats, casted all the protective spells on myself and summoned hordes of monsters to help me fight this God. I managed to drop him into lava which slowed down his regeneration and I used flight to get close and showered him with arrows and fireballs. I managed to get him down to 1/3rd HP before I ran out of juice. I was so desperate I even tried to become a vampire so I get some extra strength before giving up. Later I found out that you are supposed to beat him with some item you got from a quest and with it the whole fight is a walk in a park.
