this is genius tho

I remember when I played wow, after getting each skill and playing your character for hours, you know where everything is and how to combo everything just fine.

But one day I was playing on the ptr and just made a max character lvl of another class I had no clue how to play, it was a disaster trying to learn all that at the same time.

So the concept of rpg leveling and getting each of your skills to get accostumed in a fighting game seems genius to me, even though I hate those faggots.

they said that there is the amount of data you can transmit through the air (aka wifi and cellular) is limited. not that you can "stockpile" bandwidth.
the whole "its going to happen in 2014" is obviously wrong but it was based on the FCC's projection or something so its not like they invented it.

making kanji gay defeat a the purpose of His character, promotes gay stereotypes, and at the same time makes you the exact person that kanjis cautionary tale is supposed to be about

The thought that kanji is gay is so beyond stupid that I honestly get a headache thinking about it.

Sebastian Martin
Sebastian Martin

Yeah I agree because the hard part about getting gud at fighting games isn't really "omg quater circles are so hard :(" it's more like the mindset of what you should do at what time so you don't react to a real match like a deer in the headlights and quickly degenerate into desperate button mashing.

Although RTS are kinda similar in that the metagame isn't intuitive for new players and campaigns theoretically should teach them, but instead it just teaches them bad habits that get them killed in matches with real people.

It's pretentious but I admit I sorta liked them years ago when I had shittier taste than I do now. Probably the biggest problem them that I felt was cringey as fuck even back then is that they used "gamer" as an oppressed minority of some sort.

his consulting gig is being hired by game devs to give them advice. It's a non-job, especially because he has no qualifications to do so in the first place. It's dubious if he's even developed a game at all. He gets hired by people who don't know any better to bullshit to them.

They let other people decide their opinions for them.

worth making an analysis video about? I mean there's Dark Souls, which I will say is a japanese game focused on game design and that has a million videos on it. You could say Nintendo focus on game design, but there's so entrenched in doing the same shit over and over and catering to their already established fanbase. Most other japanese games are like I said, simple action games with not much to discuss or JRPGs

Thats not an argument although it is a valid reason to not watch a 3 hour long video by him. My point still stands, somecallmejohnny makes videos about the Nintendo games you despise, if a video game is worth making a video about it is not a good measure of how good or innovative the mechanics are.
What makes a game good? What games do you like?

I'm the guy you just responded to, and though I don't have any stake in arguments about vidya, since I pretty much have no opinion and only watch e-celeb videos for the sake of expanding my knowledgebase and/or getting people to pressure me into going outside my comfort zone, I do think somecallmejohnny, while a decent content producer, doesn't make anything special. All his videos apart from his ones about Sonic feel like consensus pandering - that he's not adding any interesting conversation, but instead saying what everyone already thinks about it. It reminds me of Errant Signal's first few videos, except not nearly as remedial and fucking obvious ("Video games glorify the player", huh? Gee, thanks Campster, I NEVER WOULD HAVE FUCKING FIGURED THAT OUT ON MY OWN."

Sorry I don't remember, I was just browsing videos about history and those showed up first, theres probably a lot more shit like that, for example they did a video where they criticized geografic determinism for being racist when it's actually the complete opossite.

why don't you morons just go to steam or metacritic or whatever and look at similar/recommended games to get exactly the same thing?

Speaking as a human being - one diagnosed with Asperger's Disorder no less - yes. Yes, I do need a logical argument for why I enjoy things. If I don't, then my only fallback becomes "because somebody else told me to like/dislike it". It's why I started getting into e-celebs - because they, like me, were people who were just as lost as I was, but were also trying to construct a reasoning for why they like and dislike the things they do with actual human vocabulary.

Being unpopular is the reason they imitate western games in the first place, idiot. If they in themselves made sufficient profit then they wouldn't need to model themselves after the far more profitable medium. Why do you think this shit started in the 6th and 7th gen?

Jayden Morales

no they really aren't, japan made video games really popular in america, several japanese series like final fantasy and metal gear and zelda are still popular, the ones that aren't are that way because of cultural differences

You fucking idiot.
The reason they ape western games is because they are struggling far more than them commercially, ergo they try to be more like the games that are struggling less because if they resemble what sells more they will then sell more so they will NO LONGER BE STRUGGLING. God you are so FUCKING STUPID.

Gameplay is how the game is played
Gameplay can be described as the specific ways in which the player controls the game and how it feels
Wanting to see some gameplay means wanting to see the game in action so that you can judge how it plays
And this retard things all these are "different definitions". What I fucking dope. He's literally too dumb to understand that a concept can have multiple facets.

Carter Jackson

the essential point is japanese games have had plenty of exposure in the west (and they still have it) and the ones that dont catch on dont catch on because they dont appeal to an american audience. I can guarantee you if there was an ad for your favourite unpopular weebshit during the superbowl it wouldn't even change a damn thing

Contrary to your mad beliefs, 4chan's userbase did not completely migrate to (the number eight)chan when gamergate discussion was banned. Nor is this site made completely out of "Le EEEEEVULLLLL Reddit nornie scum out to take muh porn n vidyagaems". Fuck off and take my (You) with you.

Mason Rogers

Did you not read the link?
The only Japanese franchise that have appeal in the west are the ones that got exposure back when Japan actually had international market presence and it was considered okay to play and advertise Japanese games. These franchises have a seniority that makes people "used" to them so they don't get the same scrutiny that newcoming Japanese IPs do unless they're heavily westernized (see: Splatoon).
I guarantee you if Ocarina of Time was the first LoZ game and it came out a decade later all the western critics would be befuddled by it and it would get mediocre scores across the board, possibly never even seeing a sequel.

To me, the modern fighting game problem is really simple. When it was just games in the arcade, you didn't have to learn everything just to fight with your friends You could just press the regular buttons with minimal variations and the game would play fine from the getgo. If you wanted to learn new moves, you either had to figure them out yourself, ask a pro or read a guide somewhere. With online and the internet, it's so easy for people who research to crush noobs, so the devs' solution to this is just to show you every single move in the game inside the tutorial and so you're expected to learn them all before you can start standing online. Offline or against friends, it doesn't cause any problem if your buddies know the same amount about the game as each other. So really, the fact that developers can't bring people into fighting games is less of a problem with the mechanics, and more of a demonstration of their failure to adapt to the arrival of online play.

DmC, EDF armageddon and Dead Rising 3 quickly came to my mind. Two of those names werent exactly niche but the western touch sure didnt helped. IMO more than blaming "western touch" i blame the relation between work hours they have with japs,
fucking nips get enslaved coding and crunching hours in ways westerners would never do

Xavier Smith

I think the nintendo clause is more relevant than the grandfather clause here, and it's not like people are completely stupid and only have their tastes dictated by familiarity, people can and do like new games when they see them, even japanese ones

well chrono trigger was a great game, do you honestly think japan has improved themselves? I don't think western games are perfect by any means, but they cater to western tastes and japan hasn't upped their game creatively which is why their game industry is on the decline

I am a hardcore dungeon fighter player (korean version) and this video is bullshit.

DFO does nothing to to explain you the functionality of the skills as you progress, you unlock them every 5 levels, but there are methods to get to lv75 in one day in that game, giving you an entire skillset you would be unfamiliar with, in fact a single stroll to practice mode with all skills unlocked and you can master a class in a day or less if you are competent enough

even more, in korea there is the option to INSTANTLY CREATE A MAX LEVEL CHARACTER FOR PvP WITH ALL SKILLS UNLOCKED (they put this because of PLAYER DEMAND), making everything the video says about DFO pointless.

i am ashamed one of the most respected games in korea is stained by these pretentious extra credit assholes who know nothing about the genres they involve with.

their video about jrpgs is the fucking worst

lets face it guuuys, jrpgs are all about the STOORY MAN.

way to completely disregard DRAGON QUEST (most popular franchise in japan) or the entire dungeon crawler genre you stupid shits, that happen to focus on EXPLORATION AND SURVIVAVILITY.

JRPGS SHOULD BE MORE LIKE WESTERN RPGS BECAUSE THEIR ONE-TURN GAMEPLAY IS OUTDATED MAN

way to completely disregard the TALES series, which defined itself by its real-time action combat, or completely ignore games like ETRIAN ODYSSEY OR CLASSIC SHIN MEGAMI TENSEI, great turn-based combat.

on their mind the only JRPG is FINAL FANTASY DUDE because guess what, they are not knowledgeable on any subject they dare to touch.

and the worst part of all is that they THINK they are.

It's amazing how people totally miss the point of fighting games, it's like watching a car crash in slow motion, the person keeps talking and little by little you can see how that person has no idea about what they are talking and never cared about the genre and then you see the crash that is the moment you realize that person, for some reason, thinks that a genre that might not be for them exists and acts like it's a deadly sin and should be changed immediately.
