Decline Now that the dust has settled, can we admit that Disco Elysium is decline?

    Luckilly, the impotent anger caused by other people liking a game that doesn’t have combat is likely to give them a fatal heart attack before they attempt something drastic.

    Or maybe... we can all just get along and enjoy different kinds of RPGs. It's a rich and diverse genre after all, drawing inspiration from many other genres (strategies, action & adventure games, platformers, sometimes even card games).

    You have fun with your 674th iteration of the Wizardry formula, while we try something new, fresh, smart and exciting.

    Besides, the success of Disco Elysium does not mean you will loose the next 50 iterations of your favorite blobber. These types of rpgs are not direct competitors, they occupy different niches of the market and appeal to different customers.

    Luckily well made RPGs that feature combat have enough depth and gameplay that they can be enjoyed multiple times beyond the first playthrough. Even most of the people praising DE admit that they pumped it, and dumped it. :cool:

    There are a lot of things that Disco doesn’t do, but what it does, it does incredibly well.

    I’ve more than said my piece in the main threads, so now I’ll put my money where my mouth is. Anybody who’s on the fence about playing Disco Elysium, PM me with your Steam handle and I’ll buy the first ten takers a copy (I won’t tell!).

    See, Jenkem doesn’t get it. He thinks this is some communist conspiracy, which is a profound misreading of the situation. Truth is Disco’s a drug and I’m your pusherman.

    Gotta be mellow y’all. Gotta be mellow now. Pusherman gettin’ mellow y’all.

    i thought i was the only one in the world who had this notion about computer games. if you can't design good combat, either get a design director who can, or don't bother at all. i personally feel that planescape: torment is good, but the combat is awful, and it shouldn't even be in the game

    Anyone with a functioning brain can see that the Disco Elysium Fanboys are like a fucking cult.

    Naturally. Cult members are never worried about them being a cult.

    All fandoms have some cult-like characteristics. The smaller the fandom, the cultier it tends to get. As fandoms go, this one is pretty laid-back.

    I honestly don't get where your epic butthurt is coming from; from where I'm standing the worst we've done to you is rate a few posts retarded, and we mostly even stopped doing that after you went all paranoid about it on the shitbox.

    Maybe we should just leave this thread to the combatfags, they need their own safe space after all.

    also quite odd how the most vehement defenders of DE in this thread are all accounts made within the last few months, all have patron status, and all are very similar in ideology and temperament.

    pre-release we had paid shills and insiders promoting the game, waking up after posting that I was enjoying the game but had criticisms to 80 plus "shit" and/or "retarded" ratings for posts not even about DE... we have members literally offering to buy the game for people at full price (literal shilling, when anyone can pirate the game if they want to play it)

    numerous attempts at gaslighting people critical of the game, going so far as sending PMs accusing me of hating them and then refusing to cite what they are talking about when I am clueless as to their accusations....

    totally organic though ;) not a cult

    Disco Elysium is a storyfag game, so if you're a combatfag simply go and play something else.

    Pretending that a well-done storyfag game is decline just because you do not like storyfag games is beyond stupid.

    ...and yet it's you who sounds like writing from the lunatic asylum.

    People who like the game defend it? What a shock! Almost as big as people who shit on the game they don't like (yeah, I know that you and people like you don't consider it to be a game. Guess what? I don't really care). People don't share your viewpoint on what is an RPG? Madmen!

    If you can't design good combat systems and good combat encounters, get out of the genre and go make an adventure game, because you are not wanted.

    Wrong. It's the walls of text/trashtext that shouldn't be in the game. As an AD&D game that came after BG, PS:T was never meant to have bad combat. Everyone who has played it can see the depth in itemization, spell repertoire and special abilities that were meant to facilitate good combat. The problem is that Black Isle lost their way, got carried away with words, and went full storyfag mode at the expense of game-play, which is synonymous with going full retard.

    the premise of the thread is not that game is decline because it is a storyfag game, it is that there is a concerted effort by ideologues to push the game as being better than it is for a variety of nefarious reasons, being agents of decline.

    for people who are story fags, you guys sure have poor reading comprehension.

    Nobody got a good RPG for 15 years straight, so the joke is on you.

    Well, except for Grimoire, but I still consider it a 1998 game :P

    Disco Elysium is brave and stunning transRPG (assigned adventure game at birth). It clearly identifies itself as RPG, that settles it, transphobes.

    Its pronouns is sux/suxors.
