I've played the souls series, Total war shogun/medieval, and a plethora of rpgs. Currently playing Tree of Savior now. Though, I consider myself an anomaly because my friends fit everything else said in this thread.
I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that blacks aren't exposed to a wide variety in their early years. They either couldn't afford it and just played outside or their parents just picked up NBA instead of Fable at gamestop.

My video game genes are fucked.
If you have a pc, grab usf4 and/or emulate some fighters. It's a really fun process and you'll get the hang of it quick. I suggest forking out a ps3 for Tekken because Tekken. Whatever you do, do not touch kof. Not yet at least.
Anon.... The truth is I find video games really really boring now. I have every console since the day of my birth and even got into pc gaming a few years back... It's just not fun anymore. I miss the old days.
Currently, I still love playing zombies(cod) every now and then. Every weekend my cousins would come over and we'd play project m variations on dolphin(so much better than on wii). Other than that, I've been playing a bit of dark souls 3 and league. I want my passion for games back, I miss the old days. Just needed to get this shit off my chest.
I hear you. Everyone is doing the constant cash grab or trying to appease swarms of retarded kids. Games used to be polished and did whatever the fuck they wanted with no way to patch. Also they didn't tune everything for babies. Made for some amazing shit.
black men play whatever games come installed on the hard drive of the stolen console, and whatever game's disk is still in it, using the one controller that still works considering it was yanked off your coffee table without regard to carefully treating any attached wires and devices before throwing it in the trunk of their whip.
It's ok man I'm sure most of us will reach that stage. Do whatever makes you happy, that's all that matters. I personally don't feel like I'll drop video games anytime soon, but if it gets to that stage then it happens :/ but at least you're trying to get back into it.
To add on to that, I feel like >>684098500
Has a point. Ever since splits screen started to wear off, gaming has become shit really. I feel sorry for the kids too, they won't get our ratchet and clanks, or jaks etc.
Yeah man, remember when games were about going on adventures or getting your friends over for a great time? Now we just park our asses in a chair alone and pretend to be social like it's actually living up to what we used to do. The internet isn't being kind to the social experience.
I'm glad I'm not the only one then. I thought I was just being a boring adult. Honestly, I have more fun modding consoles or creating custom pcs. I have a younger brother and I feel sorry for him. I try and get him to play some of the games I played growing up but he mostly plays on his shitty phone, literally a laggy piece of shit phone. All he fucking plays is shitty wrestling gamed and maybe gta if he ever uses my pc or one of the consoles. The only games he played fully that were kinda good was kh, pshyconauts, some legend of Zelda games, jak and Daxter games... Well that's all that comes to mind and those were like 2 years ago. I feel bad for him really. I try forcing him to play a game and he'll be into it for a few days and then just flat out quit it and be on his laggy shit phone playing dumb mindless games.
Maybe it was different for us because games back then were still mind blowing with each year being better than the last in terms of graphics/gameplay which created a deep seeded love for video games.
Phone games are casual time killers with no substance or challenge. Almost every one is designed only to be addictive in some way with a nice little money sink to spend your life away for nothing. (not even fun)
Sad part is that it's probably dead permanently, and we'll only see splits screen or 2p on games that need it (pretty much cod, sports, and fighters). Even if they can't think of godtier characters, I just want splits screen back at least.
Nah, I still drag out the old ones and they're freakin incredible. Played Final Fantasy 4-6 recently and loved every minute. Some of the new games are pretty good if you get the right dev team though.
Still play a bit of couch coop games. Ever since I got a projector it's been nonstop splitscreen fun. Currently we mostly play rocket league splitscreen and we're trying to finish bro force. There's a few others here and there but they're not AAA games. Scary games are great to play too. Still, I miss old school splitscreen fun.
Yea you're right. Every year it felt like games kept getting better and better. Technology was moving pretty fucking fast. We're kinda at a bump now that games take a lot more resources to make. So I can see why they try and squeeze lots of money out of us. Obviously, real devs still make amazing games and don't need to pop out a game yearly or have tons of micro transaction,, dlc or incomplete/broken games on launch.
One thing I want most of all is games to come out polished and finished. I hate buggy, unoptimized games. The last game to just make me give up on gaming was watch dogs. First and last game I ever pre-ordered in my life. Tired of misrepresented games too.
Yeah there are few games that are actually worth it. I think if big titles that garner a lot hype actually deliver it re-ignite that feeling of wanting to sit down and play for 8 hours straight.
I've been watching for games like Cave Story, Sublevel Zero, and Undertale. (yeah the last one's community is fucked) They all have lower graphical flair but their gameplay is phenomenal! Big games try to be too big and come out as something that can never truly be fixed, yet here comes the next one next year.
Yea true. Last game for me that made me want to sit down and play in one sitting was the last of us. I'm enjoying dark souls 3 now but I'm like near the end and Ive been taking long breaks from it. Want to recreate my character or reinvest level ups rather. Oh and last year I played through star wars kotor 1 and 2 on pc. Brought back memories from the Xbox 1.
The last one for me was Dragon's Dogma. The fact that I could be a 10 year old with a group of other 10 year olds fighting and climbing on giant monsters was absolutely hilarious and phenomenal
Im a black person and I hate sports games. I play my HTC Vive poor white fags. I also played Overwatch beta and just quit WoW. hmmm think thats it. I wonder what games poor withe fags play?
