This is just one example, but compare Tropical Freeze to the old Country games. Donkey Kong didn't make annoying noises every time he jumped. Enemies made a noise when they died, but only to confirm that you actually hit/killed them. It's probably a small thing to get upset about, but there are so many sounds in games that serve no purpose at all. It's the same with voice acting. Not every line needs to be voiced. In general, voice acting just seems excessive and just drives up the production costs. It's almost as if people are scared of silence and constantly need some kind of noise in the background (besides non-stop music).
The Silent Hill games get it right, but what else is there? Can you think of any games with genuinely good sound design?

Thread to talk about whatever you are playing at the moment, last thread reached bump limit.

It's been a while since I last played with my Vita, so I decided to play Uncharted Golden Abyss with it, I'm not a fan of the series, but I wanted to take a break from turn-based stuff.

In 2023 I only finished two games, I want to at least finish a game every single month, I miss playing vidya instead of browsing tiktok and social media every single day when I'm not working so I challenged myself to at least finish 12 video games in 2024.

I'm doing a play through of perfect dark. So far its a been a really intresting experince seeing how its just Goldeneye 64 but with more polish. 
What I find kind of cool is how difficulty affects gameplay and I kind of want to see it being used more in games.
Agent: Easy-modo with more focus on action
Special Agent:Same thing but with some objectives you need to do to progress.
I know theres that HD version of Perfect Dark but microsoft was being lame and gay only having it available on Xbox Live Arcade for the 360.

Memorize build order, out-gookclick the oponent, best case scenario you get a map editor and a campaign, most of the latter RTS games released don´t have map editor at all, and no campaign either or its a tutorial meant to get you to play multiplayer instead
>4X Games
same shit, but its turnbased, if you attempt to take things at your own pace or just try to do your own thing (AKA:Not using the forum meta strategy) the AI that has perfect knowledge of the game will steamroll you, this is the case in MOO, Distant Worlds, Space Empires, you name it, the only exception i´ve seen to this is Civ V, and i´d wager its because in that game you can´t deathstack and the AI is "bad" according to people
>Grand Strategy games (or actually just paradox games because the only two other Grand Strategy games aside from them are Knights of Honor and Making History, with post-Shogun2 Creative Assembly being its homosexual twin)
mostly overlap with 4x, but they are over-complicated on top of that, an example of this is how Hoi3 had the OOB system that ended up being a hassle to learn, and then once you learnt it you realized that just leaving it on AI control is the most optimal unless you are doing barbarossa or island hopping, wich is the worst of both worlds, having to learn a lot about one thing to not use it at all, its asinine design, also how you have laws and policies on

Are there mods to cause other players to crash/freeze? I'm aware it might've been random especially since the game is prone to crashing and my setup is jank but it seemed too well timed that I call the tranny out and I get booted

It's been a while since I've seen people talk about the original shooter genre, so let's have a thread dedicate to that. What's some of your favorites from this line of games? For me, my favorite was always Galaga Arrangement because of the enemy patterns and the music.

Don't tell me, ask OP why he chose it.
The Saturn has a tamer set of CGs that features no nipples on the girls or much action, but otherwise sex is implied. Even with that yellow +18 warning that's on the cover I doubt they'd have gotten away with the uncensored CGs if they tried to. The main characters are siblings.

What happened to all of the rhythm games that were present during the Aughts? It seemed like we had everything from Guitar Hero and DDR and Rhythm Heaven to now where the only thing still coming out is just...Just Dance, I think? Where did everything go?

Imageboards are also a pleasure.
It probably has something to do with dance/techno music scenes being associated with GRIDS going back to the disco days mixed with speedrunner autism. DDR and that narrow slice of dance and eurobeat from the 90s just lucked into mass appeal.

What about Nostalgia?  Is that not still active?
Replies: >>240615
Nostalgia is up to Op.3 released in 2019.
>Rhythm games are full of mentally ill people for some reason
This is an important thing to note. Rhythmic elements in platformers, action games, and other genres are good, but a "rhythm game" is often a pure exercise is memorization that is totally abstract from any kind of intermediary gameplay or physical fun like handling an instrument/playing DDR on a cabinet. Thus, they attract people who are incredibly obsessive and autistic since playing one is like mainlining heroin.

It's possible for there to be relatively well-adjusted people in speedrunning communities for both new and retro games, but I have never seen someone who played a lot of rhythm games who wasn't either a tranny or some kind of self-hating weirdo. The "best" option here is to become a Japanese dude playing the same songs on the same game for hours a day in the same arcade.
Trannies have no life and want people to pay attention to them and praise them. They're naturally going to be attracted to games that demand a lot of your attention and reward you with accolades. It's just a fact of the matter.

I'm going to be honest. I'm not very good with horror games. 
I do enjoy the thrill of being scared. The Silent Hill franchise, for example, I can be both scared by and intrigued enough to make me want to continue playing.
There are some games that I find to stressing to play though. Laugh all you want but the multitasking in the FNAF games makes me want to close the game. Of course, the jumpscares aren't scary at all and you get used to them very quickly, That's where this new fan game comes in which ramps the scare factor up to 11. I've tried but I just can't force myself to play it. It's too scary.
Also I've never played Ao Oni. I should give it a try.

Recently played some obscure ass game on the PS1 called Hellnight. The game pits you on a constant fetch quest where you're running from some asshole monster that appears whenever he feels like it.
For the remainder of the game you're on the lookout for his footsteps amidst the droning ambiance and the otherwise pitch silence in that dark ass primitive labyrinth. Add to that the low draw distance and the fact you never truly know where the fuck he is and the game somehow becomes pretty spooky.
I'm too old to be scared from a stupid fucking horror game, but if I were younger perhaps I'd be too queasy to play it. The horror wears off though once you reach the spaceship at the bottom of the map and you realize Kamiya has more bullets on his coat than you'll ever need.

Thief the dark project and penumbra
I  completely quit thief some time after the first level after  looking up that I had to go through a painting I forget exactly but something spooked me really badly  it was bad that I was already uneasy from the sound and enviroment
penumbra I'm lost for words really with the game made me feel like I was breaking into a prison except I'm completely helpless other than try to out run whatever was chasing me
it was probably the first time I quit after a few minutes into a game and it wasn't because of  it being shit
>>240335 (OP) 
Yes but not in the sense you mean, there's some game I quit simply because the fact that 100%ing them is insanely long or bothersome it fills me with some existential dread.
no, I have the opposite problem
the scarier the game, the more I HAVE to beat it, otherwise I won't get any sleep
>>240335 (OP) 
Despite its bad story, Lost in Vivo is a game that I have trouble returning to because of how scary it is. After the first section, which was accessible in the demo, the game ramps up its claustrophobia to a suffocating degree.
