It's a great time to be a nerd.

I find I can tolerate it in games with simple cartoony art style. Sure 60fps would be better bu I don't find it as immersion breaking and awful for that aesthetic as it is for games shooting for realistic animations, physics, particles, ect. I just played some of WindWaker HD on WiiU recently and was pretty impressed considering it's a 15 year old game at this point. I still have BOTW preordered and I know it's 30fps but I'm hoping it won't bother me too much given it's cartoony style.BYan wrote: ↑Feb 1st, 2017 11:01 amtbh I can't go back to 30fps anymore. Threw in Wind waker on Dolphin in celebration of the new zelda, and despite everything the modding community has done to take it far, far above what it was on the gamecube (and some would say, the remake on the WiiU), the 30 fps lock was a real buzzkill. I can just imagine how smoothly it would play at 60, but it's a japanese thing that they tie a lot of gameplay on their titles to the 30 fps cap, which is, incidentally, why it's so hard to get a smooth 60 without breaking the game.

Ha that's pretty cool. I haven't really checked out any mods for this game yet. I still occasionally boot it up to mess around in director mode and online and it still blows me away how good this port turned out. I originally played and finished it on a GTX 760 and that was impressive but on a 970 or better with everything cranked running at 60fps it's absolutely incredible

Over the years, my wife went from Ragnarok Online to Aion to Archeage and now back to Aion. She couldn't get into Blade & Soul.

Pretty much why I've never even tried an MMO despite being a PC gamer almost my whole life. I'm sure they're cool but it just seems like way too big a time commitment and I'd rather play games I can start and finish in a reasonable amount of time. I imagine a lot of people who grew up playing games like WoW have jobs, families and other time commitments now which is why the genre seems to be fading out

As someone who played a lot of MMO's when I was in high school/college Im pretty sure the reason the genre is "dead" is because everyone tried to copy what blizzard did with WoW but no one could even come close to matching its quality so everyone just played WoW. Most MMO's just went F2P (which brings its own sets of problems) and then later just shut down and since a lot of companies failed at making a successful MMO developers just stopped making them.ReeGee wrote: ↑Feb 9th, 2017 10:27 amPretty much why I've never even tried an MMO despite being a PC gamer almost my whole life.

I'd be curious to know what the average age of WoW subscriber currently is. I wonder if young people are picking it up now or if it's older dudes who grew up with it and still have the time to play it. I got a cousin around my age who still plays it somewhat regularly but most people I know that were playing it moved on years ago

Yes, MMO sucks the life out of you. I bet you don't get to see your wife much when she grinds or does instances or whatever. That's why I quit. JK. I quit cuz the games arent good anymore.
