Actually you could spend less money and purchase older games from the times when coders spent more time on gameplay itself than k00l 3d quadlinear semitransfering tripolarizing effects that would produce realistic looking freckles on that 3rd level big breasted blonde. It just seems to me that games haven't gotten any better during the years... they just have more spectacular visual FX, no real new ideas and buggy gameplay.

Who even has the guts to do a simple 2d platformer anymore? Or more correctly put: Is there anyone who thinks that something like sonic hedgehog or super mario bros would sell anymore (referring to the early 90's versions here) on a system that has the latest in hardware?

Yes, but that seems to be the mainstream these days.

One of the main reasons why I stopped updating my computer and keep playing re-releases/old games I already have/abandonware - the functionality and playability is better, they're easier on the requirements and of course they're cheaper.

I don't think there has been any new innovations on the FPS- or RTS-scene in the last two years - discounting graphics. It seems that the harder a 3D game is today on hardware, the better it is. Damn the marketing conspiracy!

Battlefield has so many new ideas. There are about 10 games based solely on bf, because of the amount of vehicles you can drive, the weapons, the realism (sometimes) the great online play, and lots of other things! and if you look real carefully at someone on bf's face, their whole face moves, it rocks!
and yes, me and the 3rd level big breasted blonde, we did it

But it's still point and shoot. The rest is only graphics.

Perhaps I'm getting old, but I still think Wolfenstein 3d is more entertaining than most of the FPS games these days. They tend to take themselves a tad TOO seriously. Okay.. I enjoyed Giants: Citizen Kabuto (yes, it's a TPS, not a FPS), but that game did not take itself too seriously. Or perhaps I don't enjoy blood splatter gore and violence as much as I did when I was younger..

egad.. I AM getting old...

Dekstar, all your counter-arguments fail because you are talking about game content, and rest of us about game techical aspects. And in that manner it's still the same crap ;)

Postby dekstar » Tue May 11, 2004 2:17 pm

I am like that... stupid.... Anyhoo, on the... technical...? side of things... Wolfenstein 3D... hold on, what do you mean by technical? i mean, its a FPS, but i think Doom beats wolfenstein, although wolfenstein was funny... specially the last boss! Doom was good with the chainsaw though.... meh...? ouch, bleeding ear....

Whether Doom beats Wolf3d or not is an unrelevant question. Comparíng Doom to Wolf3d is like comparing.. well... a morris mini cooper (the original one) to a horse carriage. Both are old and nostalgic in their own way and Doom was a major leap forwards in the FPS scene.

Both were original and great in their own time, and as precursors they both deserve I'd say equal respect.

Hell yes Doom's playability and innovativeness beats Wolf3d hand's down, but that's not the point, remember that even today a mini cooper gets a lot of attention (especially when properly restored) and owning a horse carriage is definitely cool.

Hi.

I snipped the offtopic content out of this otherwise useful topic and reopened it.

Keep it clean this time, guys. :)
