    It doesn't matter on what platform you play, what genre it is, how old a game is or what metascore says. As long as you're having fun and enjoy a game it's the only thing that matters. I grew up with PS1 and PS2 games and I still enjoy the aesthetic of old games. However I converted to PC a few years back now and I can't seem to return to console anymore due to eye fatique. Anyways for me a game is not about the most stunning graphics or any other high end stuff. Fort me a game is about story, gameplay, atmosphere, world design, creature design, music and the overall art a game can be. I just wish they make games these days how they were in the old days instead of making them solely for money and leaving a lot of potentional out in the final product even though trailers promised different things. :(

    I also used to enjoy Jump 'n' Run (mainly Spyro) as a kid but now I'm bad at those. As for Shooters, I don't mind using guns but please not in multiplayer because I'm terrible with them. If you give me a big sword and some cool heavy armor I'm fine.

    HNTRPrije 11 dana

    My favorite genres that I can name spontanously (because there's whole lot of stuff on my list that takes too long to write down) are RPGs (but nothing turn based so it would be more Action RPG but I love old RPGs that aren't turn based like Morrowind or Oblivion for example), Fantasy stuff in general, Action Adventure, Horror (mainly stuff like Silent Hill), Science Fiction (and mostly the subgenre Cyberpunk. No not, the game that failed, I meant the genre), Hack 'n' Slash and games that have a big focus on exploration. Honorable mention are a few MMOs even though I like Singleplayer games better. However I play Guild wars 2 and ESO (but ESO is only because I love the Elder Scrolls)

    There are two kinds of rpgs: the kind you actually roleplay in, these make up 1% of all current and past rpgs And the kind where you ignore the nonexistent roleplay element and just play the goddamn game

  41. Snnoy

    SnnoyPrije 2 mjeseci

    You forgot about how people will claim something to be a genre due to a VERY minor difference. I watched a video where a guy claimed to have created a new genre... because he made the player’s avatar into a plain square. That was the only difference.

  42. Tenseigod

    TenseigodPrije 2 mjeseci

    Fun fact: Spellbreak is a good battle royal. Yes there are in game purchases. But you can make these purchases by getting the currency from quests and leveling up. The default skins even look good. Also instead of guns it has magic. The final nail in the coffin is that it has an actually decent playerbase

  47. ThePurpleKnightmare

    ThePurpleKnightmarePrije 2 mjeseci

    MMO is it's own thing, RPGs are about stories and characters but MMO's are about intense PvP, until they get destroyed and eventually become about running the same dungeon a million times for rare drops and clear speed boasting. Or in the case of WoW, be too far off the mark, skip the PvP and be a bridge between an RPG and a dead MMO.

    Sports video games don't need to be made every year they could just released an update every season and make a new every 3 years or so but they're money- hungry so they choose to make it every year. And they keep getting worse.

    When he talked about fighting games having awesome communities, I guess he has never heard of For Honor.

  91. wolfo

    wolfoPrije 2 mjeseci

    @Nathan Wood yeah if you look at it at first glance it's just overwatch but unlike overwatch or tf2 1V1 are actually interesting and don't just come down to who has the better aim or smt like that

  92. Nathan Wood

    Nathan WoodPrije 2 mjeseci

    @wolfo Good point, honestly I would consider it a mix. Certain game modes like Dominion and Breach resemble things like TF2 more because of the team play, while duels and brawls are more comparable to 3D mortal kombat where the fighting comes down to combos and skill rather than all of the chaos involved in other game modes.

  93. wolfo

    wolfoPrije 2 mjeseci

    Is it really a fighting game? Not that I don't like for honor but I think it could fall In the overwatch or tf2 categories except with swords

  94. ChannelSpectator

    ChannelSpectatorPrije 2 mjeseci

    Platformers are the best game genre IMO. Entirely skill based with an emphasis on precision, whilst still feeling satisfying to play and complete. Not really a big RTS or RPG guy though, they all seem kinda slow-paced and boring to me, not to mention many of them can be complicated as heck. Shooters are okay, but they don't deserve such a huge role in mainstream media where whenever you see the term "video game", it's almost always describing an FPS.
