/vrpg/ is a place to discuss all types of role-playing video games, including single-player, multi-player, and massively multi-player, turn-based and real-time action, western-style and JRPG.

Does this mean RPGs are banned on other video game boards? No! /vrpg/ is just a separate board specifically focused on RPGs where discussions about your favorite games can thrive.

Please familiarize yourself with the rules and remember to use the spoiler function where appropriate!

Please note that, like /v/, "Generals"—long-term, one-after-the-other, recurring threads about a specific game are not permitted on /vrpg/. Such threads belong on >>>/vg/.

So much evidence led us to believe it was. I read some anon on here say indoctrination theory was true and that bioware meant to leave it open to interpretation to drive discussion of the game. I wonder if that anon is still posting on this board. He seemed very knowledgeable on mass effect.

It's honestly hilarious how the "bad guys" in this game are just the good guys but working for the bad guys. It's the equivalent of drawing a silly moustache on Superman and having Batman fight him.

Yes, people irl between ages 10 and 50 often comment that I seem to look and act like a video game character. When they ask me why that is I'm not really sure what to tell them

>What a fucking Legend!
This, thanks

>I'd like to team up with this party animal and share war stories
Maybe I'd be down if there was some /vrpg/ meetup on the US East Coast in the future but maybe not, idk, as I work pretty hard at keeping off the grid. Alternatively my lawyer is begging to drag me to Comicon (whatever the fuck that even is? Like Wtf even is Comicon?) so maybe lurk there and keep and eye out for me, if you see me, you'll know, I kind of stand out

Maybe your hardware isn't stable. Never had problems and I've never heard wasteland 2 to be a bugfest. Unironically a lot of people having problems with some games (there are ones that are shit though) have unstable hardware. I'm talking grease on the motherboard, bugs (literally had a bug get fried on underside of my CPU fucking kek hardware bugs), half inserted shit, bent pins, bad RAM or any other myriad of problems.

It's pretty good, but a lot more slapstick than FO 1 and 2. Also, your characters are kinda ciphers, you can choose how to complete missions, but you can't really roleplay as a devious villain or a heroic crusader or whatever. But still a good game, think of it like XCom with world exploration...also, Wasteland 3 is truly wonderful, so get that too

The purest essence of an RPG is a game in which your character's ability to conquer challenges in the game is tied to the character instead of the player skill, thus making progression purely driven by the character and time.

Player skill:
>Novice player
>Shoots at someone for the first time
>Miss
>Practice aiming the reticle in real life
>Manages to start hitting.
>Pro player
>Shoots at someone for the first time
>Probably hits
>Conquers the game.

Its a game where you make a character and then make choices based on what your character would do rather than what you would do. Then you come up with a different character and play it again making different choices along the way.

I've been playing through this game and I've begun to realize, after hearing so much about it for years, it is only "hated" by Final Fantasy fans because it is simply too much of an RPG. Too many secrets, too many dungeons, too many gameplay options, too many ways to build characters, etc. It's just too much for your average mush-brained Final Fantasy player, and I think that is hilarious.

I mean when you talk about years the PS2 to PS3 era in an entire fucking block was filled with good games you could play to death.
But as is normal for FF fans you just single in on them being the only thing worth playing. I mean, look at it this way, despite FF VII being huge and the hype for the remake tech demo that came before XII nobody gave a single fuck about VII: shart of cerberus, even less so than the games you listed.

Now I am in the waterways and nothing has improved. The main story quests also seem to be formatted like MMO quests, even the branching paths in the dungeons aren't interesting, (often times you can just visually look down a hallway and see there is nothing in it, then continue on, not that there is any downside to walking around aimlessly down empty hallways, as encounters aren't dynamic) and gambits are an incredibly stupid mechanic that seem to be painfully aware of how much combat in square games is tied to a single macro level decision, at best, which is repeated ad infinitum, rather than the elaborate AI scripts in Deadfire for example. How can anyone defend this?
>>
>>3464868
I recommend dropping it as it does not improve. I also tried it and made it a little further before giving up on it. It is a singleplayer MMO and it does not even have good art to help its case.

>combat is clearly designed for dueling and yet the game keeps throwing multiple enemies at you, yet using the bow feels like cheese because it's so trivially easy to hit anyone if you just put a dot in the middle of your screen
common comback is "hurr durr have you tried fighting 3 guys at once irl" well why does the fucking game keep throwing 3 guys at me in missions huh?

There's a lot more i can complain about, open world basically runs out of content once you're done with the town that starts with R and the one with the chuch under renovations, the rest of the map is basically filler.

Story is kinda shit, some chapters are neat in the same way a mid TV show can have a good episode but the our protag's motivation is really weak. Hometown gets massacred by some thug, go kill that thug, right, makes sense. But the guy that ordered it is so distant he can never realistically be involved in the story. So once that is done, all that remains is "hurr durr i want that sword my dad was working on" even though the guy the sword is for says he has like 100 and doesn't care, so that feels incredibly contrived. And then that gets resolved in the first third of the game also. The rest is just kinda meandering from random assignment to random assignment until the game ends.

Searching for treasure is somewhat fun but the game can't reward you with much more than money and shit you sell for money. I had the absolute best gear 1/3 through the game just because i did sidequests as they appeared.

DLC are legit scams. The game itself was very much alright though with glaring flaws, but the DLCs are legitemately and honestly scams that are falsely advertised. They're the only time I've ever demanded a refund for a video game (thank's epic for giving it to me) because they were the only times I felt cheated, not just dissapointed. For example, the kickstarter page promised a "playable female character" as a stretch goal. They reached it, but not only can you not play as a woman in the base game, the DLC is basically spitting in your face for wanting to be a girl as you are tasked to collect flowers for 2 hours and that's basically it. I wish I was joking.

Another massive scam is the "hans capon dlc". It's called something like "the great adventures with hans capon" so you'd expect the guy to be majorly involved in the story but no, it's basically a glorified cameo in a dlc that otherwise feels like some cut content sidequest they felt like charging separately for. I think I did everything there was to be done in 1 hour or so. I could break every DLC down like this (other than the free one amusingly enough) but I don't feel like typing anymore, I'd be putting more effort into this post than they did into the DLCs. If I was smart enough to do so I would honestly sue for false advertising and I think I'd win.
