im not a fan of pubg all that much but it's a good game regardless. surely not "dumb" or "shallow". its like i said to you months ago, just because you like destiny 2 doesnt make it a good game. on the flipside, just because you dislike pubg doesnt make it a bad game.

I never said I disliked PUBG, or that it was bad. I said multiple times it was competent, in fact.

Also I think Destiny 2 is a good game. You don't. There's no problem lmao.

pubg will probably end up being a cult favourite with a very dedicated fanbase

Except I like PUBG? It think it's alright? My argument was about Chally's claim to Onion that PUBG is "the biggest game ever" and so he should buy it.

Kingdom Hearts III will come this year to lukewarm reception; hardcore fans will claim it's 10/10 no matter what.

Actually no, hardcore fans are going to hate the fuck out of it, but casual fans will think it's 10/10.

It went F2P, then it added Cartel which is essentially P2W. It's making money so it's not a financial failure; but in terms of what it promised to do (be KOTOR "3, 4, 5, and 6" and dislodge WoW in the MMO market), it utterly failed. Hell, the game barely requires player interaction anymore, and they had to combine their servers into a third of what it originally was. Nowadays it's just an always-online RPG where you can see other avatars or do online PVP.

That was a joke you autist lmao

Nah you can't pretend you knew I was joking like in the Star Wars thread because we just had a multi quote discussion about it. It is the biggest game ever. No singular CoD has had the same dedicated fan base for one game. You can make all the lame comparisons you want but at the end of the day it's obvious you dislike the game and probably even want to see it fail.

I don't dislike the game lmao. And by no means do I want to see it or any game fail. I just want it to be better. Don't put words in my mouth.

I just like teasing you about pubg but this time I got too serious.

Some 'credited rumour guy' talked about Bad Company 3. I dont want it, please dont make it.
Apparently it's Dice LA doing it for next year so there could be a chance it's good. The DICE Stockholm WW2 Battlefield is probably gonna be bad though

Didn't realise the original H1Z1 had a name change to Just Survive. But still, one other BR thing isn't much competition. H1Z1 and the BR genre in general weren't really on anyone's radar prior to PUBG.
You're judging this from what information? Both of those were big.

Quote
You missed the point. The popular battle royale mod was PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds before it became a standalone. So fans of the mod flocked to the standalone, as they would. The point was that PUBG already had a following when it was in mod form, rather than just having a sudden surge in popularity.
It had a huge surge in popularity. ARMA 3 Battle Royale and H1Z1 were big, but nowhere near as successful as PUBG.

Quote
Like what? Play other Steam early access survival garbage and you'll find plenty of PUBG-like mechanics.
Such as?

I'm referring to realistic ballistics etc. What are you talking about?

Quote
You don't need to win a game to know if it has depth or not. Without turning this into a dickwaving contest, I've played more than enough of the game to know how it works. It's no deeper than any other large scale shooter around right now.
Sorry, but you do. You need to win several times and put in at least a few hundred hours before you fully learn the game, the map, and actually get comfortable with it. You've played like 50 hours tops, you haven't delved into the game all that much.

It's not a dick waving contest, but I'm not gonna let you call the game shallow when you've barely played it or tried to play in a competitive way.

Quote
Because the Halo games also had enough content at launch, that the extra maps were just that - extras.
$15 extras? What? PUBG has two huge maps for free. For it's genre and the sheer size and detail of the maps it's like all the DLC Halo 3 maps for free.

Quote
It's also worth mentioning that the overall model for games is a lot different to how it was back in 2007 - for better or worse, they now follow a SaaS model, which is why the point about regular content updates is more relevant to games like Destiny 2 and PUBG's survival than to Halo 3, where things were only just starting to shift towards it.
What does that have to do with content? You don't need new shit every week to enjoy a solid game. It's just good on its own.

Quote
You can literally reduce any game when you use language like that.

PUBG is just running around and shoot in someone's direction until they die.
You can't, though. You need to range and account for bullet drop, placing bullets on the torso and chest make a difference etc.

Fortnite on the other hand doesn't even have ADS on some guns and is very cartoonish, it's also still only 3rd person which promotes camping and cheap kills.

Quote
It released in late March. The period between that and September didn't really have many big or notable releases. Had PUBG launched in Early Access in the winter period where Battlefront, CoD and Destiny 2 were coming out you'd have a point.
I was also talking about games that were out at the time.

Quote
This is an argument I thought was reserved for Bethesda games.
If it was broken I wouldn't be able to play it everyday with little to no issues. With other people.

Quote
Lag has improved since early access but that's about it. It's still horribly buggy. I've lost games because they decided to force me into getting stuck in some piece of geometry like a table just by walking close to it.
Actually lag got worse after launch, just recently it improved. You'd know that if you played it.

That hasn't happened to me since way back in early access. I haven't heard of other people complaining about that either.

Quote
Special? It's just another shooter that's competent at what it does. I have no reason to respect it anymore than I do Battlefield.
Never played anything other than the Bad Company 2 campaign so I'm not going to diss it, but I think PUBG is a more tactical game.

Quote
Because it's not relevant to the topic and is more likely driving away discussion.
This is a practically dead forum fucking lol what discussion could we possibly be driving away. Even if it was full of people, who cares? We're having a discussion. We're not spamming gore.

Quote
Just saying the popular=good seems to be the thing you push when people talk about the game negatively.
It isn't, and you have no proof of that. I always talk about the game and its merits.

Never said that dumbass. I said you can't judge whether or not a game has depth when you've barely played it and you aren't that good at it yet and you don't understand all the mechanics fully.

If you couldn't play Dark Souls offline, it would be a 2/10 game and that's being nice.

That's why I quit originally, because people fed me confusing nonsensical bullshit about how its MP worked and if it worked the way I thought it would, then yes, I would still think it's a horrible game.

Had I been told from the start that you don't have to play online to enjoy the full extent of the game, I wouldn't have been such a salty bitch about it, but everyone and their mother (including you) kept telling me that I NEED to play online to get the full experience.

Which ended up being BS, so thanks.

Not true. I specifically remember you saying you quit because there's a message from the developers right before the part where the boulder smashes you on that staircase, right after talking to that knight who dies. About how it's bullshit and the game tricks you and so on.

And yes, you should be playing online to experience the game fully instead of being a little bitch and crying every time anything even slightly negative happens to you.

Also I never said you NEED to play the game online, I said you should to fully experience the game. You, being the hardline radical al qaeda member that you are, refused to play the game offline if you can't get the full experience. That's not my fault, it's you who's always in your way.

It had a huge surge in popularity. ARMA 3 Battle Royale and H1Z1 were big, but nowhere near as successful as PUBG.
This brings me back to my earlier point about Twitch streamers. Prior to actually being released for early access, Bluehole got a bunch of popular streamers to test the game in beta. The game was good, naturally the streamers enjoyed it, so Bluehole had a bunch of free advertising before the game was even available to the masses, in addition to people who already liked the mod.

Not denying PUBG's successful or anything, just saying that the increase in popularity wasn't entirely out of the blue.

Quote

I thought you were referring to the gametype-centric mechanics rather than the ballistics shit. Sorry.

Even then, other games offer that shit too.

You don't need to play 50 hours of a game like PUBG to understand its mechanics. I'm not claiming it's shallow, I'm just saying it's not as deep as you're saying.

Quote

I'm not expecting 10+ maps for PUBG. I think both current ones are pretty good as they stand.

My point was that populations stick to games for different reasons these days, hence why PUBG is going to need to keep up with that demand if it wants to retain its success compared to how Halo 3 kept its population, especially given that it's a game centered around a single gamemode.

Quote
I was also talking about games that were out at the time.
huh?

Quote
If it was broken I wouldn't be able to play it everyday with little to no issues. With other people.
I could play Fallout 4 every day with little to no issues just after it launched, but it wasn't the same for everyone. Game was still broken.

Quote

I actually played it quite a bit over Christmas and had some fairly decent games. Just not with you. :(

yeah because reading dopey little messages from 12 year olds who think they're funny for posting 7 year old memes totally doesn't break the immersion at all

even if people aren't trying to deceive you, do you think i appreciate being spoiled how to beat certain bosses or where illusory walls are? because i don't, i like to figure shit out on my own, so the messages add absolutely nothing to my experience

so the entire MP experience is just nothing but frustration, spoilers, and cancer

wow, not exactly my idea of a good time

if someone had just told me "you can just play offline and avoid all that retarded shit," things would've been different

nobody did that though, even though it solved almost all of my problems with the game instantly
