@  xcrash1998 : (21 September 2018 - 05:46 PM) I like games that actually reward you for reaching more difficult objectives.
A good example would be the golden ballon in Super Mario Oddisey it more like a trophy and less like an in game side note of what you did.
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:13 AM) but like yeah I get more trophies/achievements in games that I just happened to play more bcuz the game itself was fun or w/e and it's like oh ok i also will get these things just through doing the stuff i wanted to do anyway, that's cool i guess lol
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:08 AM) like they don't rly hurt but they aren't something of particular value, it's kinda like a fancy alert with a title that tells u u did a thing, it's not bad but im not rly one to go out of my way to obtain the validation of a video game through something that can usually just be done via spending enough time/effort on it

(getting to like the top X% of a competitive multiplayer game or smth would be a diff story, but in that case i wouldn't even want an achievement, i feel like just getting there should feel rewarding in itself, so... yeah, lol)
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:07 AM) yeah I'm not a trophy/achievement guy lol
@  acceptance : (13 September 2018 - 10:35 PM) That's just not incentive enough for me, man.
@  acceptance : (13 September 2018 - 10:34 PM) Plus with modern gaming a lot of the time the most you can hope for if you get all the collectibles is a trophy/achievement. Which I suppose is valuable to some people, but it's not gonna add anything to the game whatsoever.
@  Fire Blazer : (12 September 2018 - 05:58 PM) like yeah sidequests with an actual crafted scenario to them, post-game dungeons that aren't TOO much grinding/rehashed content, etc. are cool
@  Fire Blazer : (12 September 2018 - 05:57 PM) yeah I only like completionist stuff if it's like meaningful content/not super grindy but usually at some point it becomes kind of annoying so meh
@  acceptance : (11 September 2018 - 01:01 AM) Gotta love unforgivingly difficult super bosses. (Looking at you, Lingering Will.)
@  acceptance : (11 September 2018 - 01:00 AM) I cannot do the whole collectible thing. It always feel so tedious. Sidequests and EX dungeons are always fun though.
@  xcrash1998 : (09 September 2018 - 06:56 AM) So thats perfect for me
@  xcrash1998 : (09 September 2018 - 06:55 AM) I am rather obsessed with completing on 100% unless it is completely unreasonable to do so
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:51 AM) if they ever make a sequel/spiritual successor or the like at the very least it should have my attention, haha
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:50 AM) so yeah, great, great game overall, I even bought the expansion and played the heck out of that too because it was so much fun. Think I ended up almost 100%ing it (basically fully explored the map IIRC, not sure I did everything but at the very least I should have gotten pretty close).

and I'm not really a completionist either, so again... just speaks volumes about how fun the game was IMO.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:48 AM) Awesome gameplay, sweet enemies, an overall interesting premise and plot along with some solid writing, even the soundtrack was decent for a Western game, lol... but of course, the VISUALS. whew. the game looks soooo good. couldn't help but take pictures even though I don't usually consider myself that kinda guy, lol. the environments and hyper-realistic look are just so visually appealing I was often kinda mesmerized, similar to how I felt with Xenoblade X.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:46 AM) I'm surprised to have finally found some other people who have played and liked that game though. I was excited for Horizon: Zero Dawn and got it at launch and ended up basically binging it, IIRC even putting P5 on hold for a bit, because it was just so much fun.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:46 AM) ouch @ potential april fools lol
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:34 AM) Still an excellent game. One of the more interesting stories I've come across in a game, especially an open-world one, and some pretty solid characters and worldbuilding. The gameplay is fun and works really, really well in the setting, too.
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:31 AM) Although that article is from April 1st and my google searches are not revealing any other evidence of a PC release...
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:29 AM) Ah yes! I just played that game this past summer with my friends (who have a PS4) and it really was great! I'm really glad it's coming to PC so I can have it myself, and also because I've got some PS-less friends who would really enjoy it.

[11:19:40 PM] ballin1337: I am making a list of 50 things Awakening is missing
[11:19:51 PM] ballin1337: try to be specific, not too broad, because we want to list 50 things. that's a lot more than it seems

[11:20:04 PM] ballin1337: by "missing" I basically mean, anything that could be different and maybe better

[11:28:20 PM] ballin1337: https://docs.google....dit?usp=sharingBOOM
[11:28:21 PM] ballin1337: go
[11:28:26 PM] ballin1337: don't write over other people's stuff please.
[11:28:34 PM] ballin1337: also try to be creative though writing the obvious ones is also helpful.

 

NOTE: DO NOT SHARE THIS GOOGLE DOC WITH PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF THESE FORUMS. I want to minimize the chance of random people messing with things. So, we'll just keep it to us. Hope you contribute. Thanks!

I dun wanna do spreadsheets. :(

 

Sounds like a fun idea, besides that. Editing google docs tends to be really annoying for me, though, so I'll pass.

I edited my responses into the comments section of some

 

In response to affinities:

"While they might be superfluous they don't do any harm either and aren't constantly crashing into your face unnecessarily (e.g. like superfluous dialog). This list isn't to say they have to return, it's just listing things that have value to people that are missing in Awakening."

 

I think you're misunderstanding the point of this list in general. You made a similar point about support conversations in mid-battle but I'm not saying they're better or anything, just that it's something notably different that some people might value. That's why I let "Dismounted" be on the list even though I'm not really a fan of dismounting units myself: because some people might like that and miss its presence.

 

That being said, your points are generally valid for supporting the opinion that it doesn't matter/doesn't need to be in Awakening/whatever, so I appreciate you giving the counter-thoughts regardless

 

------

 

About late-game characters and such:

 

"I figured someone would say that but those characters don't join late enough for them to fill in that role IMO and due to Awakening's lack of linearity, they're missing the same feeling/vibes caused by having characters join late in a story: you can go ahead and do a bunch of skirmishes/DLC maps/paralogues/whatever in the mean time so they basically feel like normal characters just with less supports and a later joining time. - Blazer"

 

Thus I don't agree that Awakening has it. Too many differences for it to count for me, doesn't really feel similar
