I like Yoshi's Story despite being a short game and most of its levels being easy.

Now playing:
Zelda BotW (DLC), Mario Odyssey, Octopath Traveler, Bravely Default, Yooka-Laylee, Bravely Second, Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest (SNES N3DS), Megaman ZX.

@subpopz The problem with that story telling method is it's not really immersive because it's still scripted, there's no AI reaction to your actions, meaning it actually disconnects you from the illusion of the environment - you can act out of sequence without effect - versus just having a fixed camera that keeps you in sequence. Meanwhile you're expected to stand in the right place so the audio doesn't drop out or doppler out, which means predicting where characters are walking and talking to - and if you miss, they keep going like you're there. WIthout real AI altering the actual events, it doesn't really work.

Hot take: I love zelda for the lore, but I've never actually beaten them because I just don't like how they play. I don't know why, but the controls have always felt... odd. The gameplay is also super slow for me at least. Just so you know, I have tried twighlight princess, Zelda 1, Link between Worlds, and BOTW.

Nice >:]

I do stupid stuff on youtube.com/mysticbros, so check it out if your bored or whatever.
Or don't, it's your time after all.

@subpopz Don't get me wrong, I think they could have left first person perspective in rather than cutting to a dolly grip or something. They could have even left you able to look around freely. But being able to walk around and leave the area.....or having to follow NPCs around the room when you really can't just broke it. Didn't matter, the story was incoherent anyway with zero explanation about what actually was going on/why other than "Aliens" and "corrupt soviet style government." The machines eating the city at the end had pretty much no explanation. Nor any lead-up. They were just suddenly "there" in a way that seemed important but couldn't be because they were never actually explored.

@Anti-Matter So you aren’t playing something you want to play just because of one segment. This is what happens when you set barriers on yourself smh.

@GyroZeppeli @redd214
On other games i have, i still have to deal with something that i really felt Uncomfortable. 🙄
I have to play Water gun with Splatoon style from Go Vacation at least once to get a Stamp. 😕
I really dislike to play Blitzball on FF X, just same Boring as Soccer, but i have to play it once, doesn't matter win or lose to continue the storyline. 😒
I didn't really like to be a Tank in Super Mario Odyssey that i have to shoot the Giant Robotic centipede. 😕
Lately, i found something like 1st person view shooting the targets from kingdom Hearts 3 when Sora have to ride a machine to shoot all the targets.
Doing like that was like rubbing my old wound with salt.

Oh, on other games i still haven't yet, i found a game with title GuruGuru Tamagotchi 3DS Japan, actually it was looked cute and fun until i found i have to play Soccer mini game, i was like "Nooo.... Not that sport again!"
That game was still on my fence.

@Anti-Matter I can sort of understand being peeved by shooting real bullets, but a water gun? That’s just silly as they do not cause any harm to the receiver. I think you might be a little harsh on yourself. None of this stuff encourages violence any more than a team member splashing their coach with Gatorade.

@Anti-Matter You are definitely not crazy. I think that since you know the characters are toys, you are okay with them committing violence against others since they are not real. But other video game characters look more realistic, so you have an incline to not like them doing things like shooting. This close-mindedness just leads to hypocrisy.

@subpopz Yeah, most of that isn't explained at all in any meaningful way. Or if it is, not fixing the freaking camera on the dialog makes it too easy to lose it. It's mostly fanfic fill-in-the-gaps. FWIW, I've heard it on good authority, I.E., inside, that most of the devs have no clue what the story was supposed to be and mostly slapped stuff together and also think the storytelling mechanism was terrible So most of the "coherent" story is the internet retconning harder than Aonuma trying to splice timelines out of Miyamoto's "story doesn't matter" design priorities Yes, I know it's an "unpopular gaming opinion", obviously, but the point is the media and public made this big hoo hah of the new bar set in storytelling in a game that even the devs thought wasn't coherent.

It's like Dark Souls. There IS NO STORY if you have to cobble together "lore" into something that makes sense in your head. (There's unpopular opinion #2.)

@subpopz The "expanding barrier walls" were definitely never previously explained in plain dialog. The goals and functions of the major parties were never explained. It was a weird snapshot of events without context. And only the events were explained, never the context.

I truly rate it as one of the worst games I've ever endured. It was pretty with interesting environments (in the first 1/3 anyway), I'll give it that.

I'm still struggling to understand your preferences. You don't like any kind of shooting, even imaginary, but you love fighting games like Street Fighter?

@Agriculture It doesn't ruin immersion...it's always first person viewpoint, what you see in first person is all you get as if you were there. It's far more immersive than cutting to pre-rendered scenes with fixed camera angles and even seeing Gordon with his personality and input (leaving this blank is about the same as Link not talking enabling you to immerse yourself into the character rather than just relate to them).
If climbing over furniture when someones talking ruins immersion...well that's something you did yourself

It's a matter of opinion, but I always thought of immersion as something which has little to do with realism. You immerse yourself in a film when it's exiting and eventful, not when it shows something real from realistic angles. My opinion is that a game like Metal Gear Solid 2 does a way better job of immersing the player than Half-Life 2, because that game pulls out every trick from games and movies to create a whole experience the players can immerse themselves in. Half-Life 2 just dogmatically locks the camera to first person and call it a day.

I liked how Half Life left you in control during cutscenes, it was immersive. Sure, you can run around like an idiot during them, just as how in real life you can run around in circles and dance in the during a funeral.

Wait, running in circles and dancing at a funeral isn't normal? That explains... a lot actually. Pants are still optional right?

@subpopz Oh man, if that's your opinion of the relatively straight-forward and exciting MGS1, stay FAR away from the nightmarish, post-modern mind-screw that is Metal Gear Solid 2.
