Hey guys

I want to get more into JRPGs so I've gathered a small list of games that interest me (PS1-3, gamecube, 3ds and all the openemu consoles are what I can play on)

trails in the sky
breath of fire 3&4
wild arms series
final fantasy 9
suikoden 2,3,5
grandia 2
chrono trigger
legend of mana
golden sun 2
Ys series

Play Golden Sun 1 before 2 if you haven't done it, it's really one big game separated in two cartridges, and a masterpiece at that.


You've never played Chrono Trigger? What's wrong with you?


This game will stay with me forever. One of the great classics.

Yeah, despite its endless praise I wouldn't consider it overrated. Extremely ambitious games that actually deliver deserve all the praise they get.

Has anyone actually played Legend of Dragoon? It's infamous for its length but is it good?


I used to not listen to other peoples opinion thats why =)

legend of dragoon is on my extended list, I've listened to the OST quite a bit and it was wonderful but was kinda thrown off by the gameplay from watching footage

>trails in the sky
I've heard its good
>breath of fire 3&4
The whole series is pretty good. It's cool to see the archetypes and gameplay evolve overtime
>wild arms series
the ost is good
>final fantasy 9
the slowest FF by far. If you can take the slow pace and loadingscreens, it's a great game.
>suikoden 2,3,5
Same as BoF
>grandia 2
I liked Grandia 1 a lot, but I haven't played 2 yet.

What could we do to push people like this to realize that just whining at a massive corporation is not going to fundamentally change anything, and that the problem is the system? I'm tired of hearing the same "look, I'm not promoting copyright infringement, but I also hate what this powerful company who is the copyright holder does to fan projects/its own games…" and other such cop-outs. Sounds like cuckoldry to me.

Maybe the first step is to promote the idea of changing copyright laws so that big businesses can't fuck people over as much, instead of allowing consoomers to try to defend fan projects/piracy and cucking out to copyright law designed to protect the rich at the same time. Maybe some already realize this, but I think the majority hasn't even thought that in this case, the problem is not the company who is unwilling to be nice and ignore the law to cooperate with fans, the problem is the laws (and system, of course, but they're not ready for that yet) that allow "anti-consoomer" companies to force their own rules onto those fans whenever and however they want, and it's hypocritical to simultaneously support such illegal activities and copyright law. They definitely already understand that corporations are not their friend and just want to make as much money as possible, gamers only need that little push towards real action.

From there, we could start promoting criticism towards the system itself, little by little. Hopefully, they would end up realizing that the issues in the videogame industry such as overpriced pieces of plastic or overpriced and limited re-releases of old unoptimized software are never going to be solved by reforming the company's policy or capitalism, that the implications are much more bigger than they ever imagined, that capitalism is not a universal and unchangeable state of affairs that we just have to accept and deal with, and that there exists a viable alternative to it which we could help bring about.



>and cucking out to copyright law
*and to cuck out to copyright law

My point with that paragraph is that I would expect this idea to prompt consumers to think beyond their narrow view that companies are the origin of every one of the problems that they bitch about, which of course are only some of the logical consequences of capitalism. Or, in gaymer/programmer terms, "it's not a bug, it's a feature" but unironically. Perhaps realizing that the scope of these issues is bigger than they thought would result in them eventually seeing the whole system we live in as the fundamental problem.


Great essay op. I don't think that the fanboys nor the consooomers would realize the underlying conditions that result in corporate behaviour.

Just look at this shit.
>A $1000 shitty mobile app? Sorry, we can't do anything about it; their business, their rules, you're not being literally, physically forced at gunpoint to spend that much money to see the full game, so there's nothing wrong with it even if you think it's exploitative and their workers are being paid above average wages. That's how this world works!
<Oh what's that? The creators like some incest ship or used to be obsessed with gay rape anime porn 7 years ago? REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE CANCEL THIS GAME
God I hate liberals so fucking much.
Plus, when will it become popular to tell these goddamn pussies that we can and should change the status quo?

Thanks anon, although I wouldn't call it an essay, it's just my ranting out of frustration at this conformist, weak-ass, passive bullshit. So it comes down to this? Consoomer dicksuckers will be our enemies forever? No hope for them to be enlightened whatsoever?


>above average wages
*below average

When the libido modern culture gets so shit that you can't even entertain yourself with your toys, but have to be entertained by a professional artisan.


Who says they have to be professional?


Sometimes I like seeing a random guy play and talk about games. Most of the time I play the games myself. What's the problem?



Hell yeah I do dawg

Zhdanov is really based in his regional focus tree but then they just make him comically evil in his superregional tree and then he just dies. Someone here should make a rework mod for him.


I mean you can now have Kardashev be his successor and return to LibSoc ideology, unless they pull another epic maymay and have Kardashev turn out to be evil too.


It’s so stupid of these people to continuously try to make any associates of Stalin into actual cartoon villains while giving Nazis of all people relatable backstories. Peak liberal hilarity.


His Soviet Union is just the Soviet Union irl under Brezhnev


Suslov is obviously the better choice here.

Is this game Marxpilled?

The villain is literally named Porky and his literal capitalist empire is themed after pigs, why aren't there more communist MOTHER memes??


You can't go wrong with playing them as originally intended: NES, SNES, and GBA.
Most people start with 2, go to 3, and 1 is usually an afterthought because of the grind.

I personally suggest playing 1 via the 1+2 remake for GBA, but that's just me.


File: 1609932556692.jpg ( 77.53 KB , 1280x720 , Piggy guys.jpg )

No and it's about the only thing that would make the game better. There is no collective workers struggle that topples the Pigmasks, it revolved around 2 psychic kids, a dog and a neet finding enough mcguffins.
It is the most outwardly anti-capitalist game I've ever played though, and probably the best JRPG ever made in regards to the system it came out on. Like, they pretty accurately depicted the carrots and sticks of imperialism, they never try to portray capitalism as anything but "when things got shitty", reform isn't even on the table because any half measure would still be barbaric compared to what the Nowhere Islands were before.
Even the personal stories the characters go through have a strong anti-reactionary bent. The entire chapter with Flint shows just how hollow and useless petty revenge against an exploited group is, but it never hesitates to show that all violence carried out against the Pig Mask Army is absolutely fucking justified.
One of my biggest frustrations with other supposed anti-capitalist games is that they try to suggest that whatever self-defense against capitalism is taken is just as brutal as capitalism itself, The Outer Worlds being the first example that comes to my head. The only time Mother 3 comes anywhere close towards that would be the ending, and even then between the way the events play out and the story that led up to it, totally justified.
Also the Pig Masks are the perfect fascists. They show up as police a lot of the time, and do "police shit" (protect capital). They're threatening with their tech and fetish for violence, but they're also a bunch of fat dipshits who bumble around in an amusing way.

>series created by a literal marketer
Really makes you think.


What comes close to a revolution, I think, is the Dragon's awakening. It destroys, but also has the potential to rebuild, depending on the person who pulls the needles. And to get rid of Porky's empire it has to be completely destroyed. Most of the characters who learned about the Dragon and the needles supported Lucas.

Is this the worst mechanic ever put into action games? Is there anything more deflating then framing gameplay in real time with spatial control to give the appearance of player control and skill mattering, only to have them fail at random due to a number?

One of the reasons high level Doom speed running is awful.


I mean, it's kinda realistic though. Getting shot is pretty much a random process, you can die in one bullet or get lucky and tank 5 of them without serious injury.


Oh hey I found another one

Hello comrades, I've been playing the Harvest Moon/ Rune Factory/ Story of Seasons series for a long time, is Farming Simulator worth it? Is it relaxing and tranquil? Or is it too realistic and a desperate push to break even?

Other sims allowed in this thread too, flight sims, goat sims, whatever.


The Harvest Moon series is best described as a sort of social life RPG. It's a big mistake to group it in with sims, which don't even making any real attempt to be games.

The site's good for general discussion of gaming stuff of course, but for those who play multiplayer there's no way to connect and team up with/1v1 fellow bunkerbros,
and the actual /leftypol/ Matrix server seems more for direct discussion about political theory (duh) and moderation.
I just wanna play tf2 with bros who don't think 'gasthejuice' is actually funny, you know.
Voot and discuss.

Let's see how many people here are actually interested in a matrix room for /games/. Here's a room I made (https://matrix.to/#/!YWrRUKLasccyNpfbue:matrix.org?via=matrix.org). I will ask mods to add this to /leftypol/'s matrix community if we get some people on board.


tried joining, says i am not invited, go figure


Did you enter the address or click the link with ). added to the end?


Sorry forgot setting it so anyone who has the link can join. You can try now. https://matrix.to/#/!YWrRUKLasccyNpfbue:matrix.org?via=matrix.org (fixed typo in the link)

Valve Index: One Year Later
Around when do you believe these will price drop to the more reasonable 200 dollar range?


Can I get a little more context on your link OP before spending 30 minutes increasing the video hit count for a shit eating e-celeb?


That's not an e-celeb. Its what it says on the tin: Review of the Valve Index after a year of usage

It seems like a pretty random place, but it seems like that these people are pretty much 80% trump supporters. A lot of ex-obsidian guys hang out over there and shit post about SJWs and stuff. It's a pretty big place where Underrail and Age of Decadence (the two big meme CRPGs) developers hang out so it's not a small place.
I Just find it weird how reactionary these people are though.

Sorry, didn't mean to mansplain


GOOD post.


what does that even mean, this word has no meaning
the ancient regime is dead and will never come back
all I see is the big three technocratic religions fighting each other like the three original god given religions used to do


first cause they're burgers, second many small and loved rpg studios over there have had problem with retarded sjw


also the elitism foster a reactionnary culture I guess
