    I've heard of a 30-something brony of that variety. He went from sharpening knives in his spare time to brushing the manes of pony figurines, and left a fair amount of MLP artwork on my ship's network drive.

    When I played it it was after I played Skyrim. I picked up Oblivion in 2014, I think. Compared to the other games that came out then it looked horrible and I just couldn't do it. Plus I hated the skill system and the magic.

    Oblivion looks fine when modded, but the level up system sucks. I just straight up cheat myself up to 20 and never level up again.

    I didn't like the first Dragon Age, seemed really forced to me. EA just wanted their own same old uncreative Tolkien world with the market already saturated with TES, Warcraft and D&D. And the awkward digital romance gave me the chills. Just like in Mass Effect which I like when there's stuff to do between the talking.

    I liked Oblivion quite a lot, and was a bit disappointed with Skyrim, because it was too streamlined and simple. To me the best Elder Scrolls game will always be Morrowind.

    As for a popular game I don't like, Super Hot. I got it recently in a bundle and I can't seem to get into it, I certainly don't get what the fuss is about.

    You can't mod an Xbox 360. I wish I could, believe me.

    I agree with you on the level system. It's just so weird and complex and I hate it. I like simple skill systems that are still flexible, like Skyrim's. Like seriously, why is Acrobatics even a skill?

    Pipistrele Smart batto!

    Compared to 2014 games? Well, of course it is, it's a very early title in X360 library, and it came from an era where PS2 was still a supported console. Compare the game to many other 2006 releases, from Bully to Dark Messiah of Might and Magic, and you'll see that it's actually one of the better-looking games of the year.
    (Skill system is a legitimate complaint, though - not the one I agree with, since I kinda like the thing, but yeah, it's divisive)

    Well yeah, it was good for its time, but now it's doesn't hold up as much as it did back then. It's really just personal preference.

    Any RTS game for the "rule" more APM the better and because i suck at those honestly, but these games are just boring in my opinion.
    Any fighting....except of Tekken franchise which got the most enjoyable fighting system which got sense.
    Modern FPS games, where the hell are projectile based enemies, where are pickups, where the fuck is "complex" level design, what the hell with "atificial difficulty" in every game like that.

    This is going to be a big one.

    *takes a breath*

    Witcher III: Wild Hunt.


    *takes a deeper breath*

    Because it was so damn boring.

    Bioshock Infinite, Far Cry 3, Sonic Generations and FTL: Faster Than Light

    Gonna pick up and try New Vegas again. i got it on release day and was reeeeeally disappointed with it. Everyone else seemed to love it but i just couldn't get into it. Maybe now that there's MORE THAN ENOUGH mods out there i might be able to fix all the problems i had with it.

    i want more RPGs like Morrowind where your character learns by doing rather than just killing. it makes no sense when you can pour endless experience points into a school or skill your character has never or rarely done. For instance, in Fallout3 and Vegas, despite having never even jiggled the doornob, my character can buff their lockpick skill to master level by murdering things. What?! How does that work?! -And how does stomping on cockroaches make my hand grenades stronger???

    Dark Souls.

    I can't get into it. I hear a lot of fans including my boyfriend say "it's meant to be hard! >:3 Such a grind." I am tempted to say it might be a PR tactic to cover for game flaws

    I'm a huge Dark Souls fanboy, I even purchased a used ps4 to play bloodborne, but I agree. The second one especially was marketed around being too hard, and in the game itself there are a lot of reused ideas from the first one, and most of the difficult parts are accomplished by throwing more enemies at you, and multi-creature bosses, which is rather cheap. The first Dark Souls barrier of entry is rather steep, and the PC port is crap, but in the second and third ones the learning curve is manageable and the combat more fast paced and fluid, and magic isn't a chore. When recommending the franchise I say go for the second or third one, but the first one will always have a special place in my heart. <3

    Eh... the experience point system is relatively minor compared to what came up in later Bethesda IPs. What immediately comes to mind are the absurd number of "quality of life" perks in both Skyrim and Fallout 4 that are solely there to make things easier at higher levels, rather than to allow you to do something that wouldn't otherwise be possible strictly through game mechanics.

    Fortunately, that's what mods are for.

    I can't get into most FPSs in general. A lot of modern Military Guy Shooties Things games just don't look interesting to me, especially ones that look wayyyy too much like CoD. CoD's alright, though. If I ever do play FPSs, though, it's usually the old Dooms, Turok, Time Splitters, and Perfect Dark.
