You don't call someone "dad" or "papa" out of respect. You do because it's the first deliberate noise a baby can make and they're the only people you hang out with.

Nah man, me and the other babies would all hang up and bro it up, baby style.

Huh.

I literally did not care about any of those games apart from the Sims 4, so I'm gonna go with that. Although it's apparently gotten a lot better with a bunch of free updates and patches, it's still just a huge step down from the Sims 3.

Give me Create a Style or give me death, EA.

Don't worry about the new ones.

They are marginally better, sure, but are they worth waiting for? Not really. Xenoblade Chronicles is the only game that is currently confirmed to be exclusive to the New 3DS and it looks like garbage. It's apparently a great game on the Wii but if they are just gonna port a bunch of old Wii games onto a tiny little screen and make them look even worse, then you are better off sticking with the current 3DS XL.

I'm also gonna agree with Corevi, your English is fantastic.

Mine would definitely be Minecraft. I played it for a month once (to see what it was all about) and while I understand why it's huge I find it to be an incredibly boring "game". I played it originally when Notch was just starting to take money for it (when Paypal thought he was somehow doing something illegal so they briefly froze his account and wouldn't give him access to his funds- this was in 2010 or so). There was absolutely nothing to the game beyond mining and building stuff at the time. It didn't tell you even how to do that much- you had to figure that all out. To this day that is the most popular way to play minus the "figure it out" part.

Legos are more fun, kids. But I guess it's too complicated to get Legos into schools now-a-days? Or maybe people just like sitting at a computer more for some reason that doesn't make sense in order to "build" something. That aspect of it is strange to me.

Just for reference I did play it again after it had more of the video game aspects built in, and it was better as a video game at that point, but still seems like something that would be more fun to do with actual Legos. Also, fuck creepers. They were a bug that probably should've been removed (kidding).

But, anyway, I let my niece play my copy of it now and she plays it all the time. The nice thing is it gives her something to do with her creativity, I guess.

I'm currently working in a primary school as a teaching assistant, so I feel pretty qualified to say this: why the heck would we have Legos in school? We have a curriculum to teach, it's not always fun time play time. Closest thing we have is those great cubes that you can pop together and create shapes for maths. I dunno what they are called but I love those things.

Some kids buy and play with Legos, that's for sure, but Minecraft is hands down the most popular game in our class. We let the kids pick the names for their home tables and three out of five of them have Minecraft in the name.

You just come across as kind of jaded about the whole thing, man. Why don't people want to play with Legos instead of Minecraft? It's because you can build infinitely better things with Minecraft. People can't afford to buy a thousand pieces in order to create that cool lava moat around their cloud scraping castle made entirely of glass. I had some Legos when I was growing up, I managed to build some pretty cool towers and buildings. Did I get together with all my friends (Minecraft has online multiplayer) and combine our Legos to create mega fortresses that reach to the bottom of the world and to the very highest point above the clouds? Heck no, you just can't do that. That's not possible.

You're kinda derisive about sitting at a computer and playing a game, saying you can't make sense of it. I kinda find that hard to believe since you were sitting on a computer typing that into a website about playing games.

Just my two cents, man. Those kids really fucking love Minecraft.

I've said it countless times on this forum and I'll say it again.

Bioshock is utter, complete garbage.

Rant and rave to me all you want about the amazing setting and atmosphere, but the fundamental gameplay of the game is awful. It's like they didn't even realise they were building a shooter and just slapped some gun controls in there last minute.

I came here to say there are a ton of animals that make creepy screaming noises, but specifically I was going to mention foxes. Thankfully, the person above me mentioned them and linked to a video.

Foxes are some freaky shit, man. I live on the edge of a large woodland area, so I get woken up by them quite often just frolicking around in my garden. It's like the sound of someone dying a horrible death every time they open their mouths.

It also makes sense that's why it kept going back and forth, because that sort of animal is going to be running around doing it's thing. It sure would be cool that your story had some sort of supernatural bent, but realistically, it doesn't, it's just an animal.

I can't think of many old games that I am waiting for a HD remaster.

I will say though, if they never re-release Dragon Age: Origins with some sort of "we've recorded voices for the main character!" than they will have fucked up. That will completely revitalise that game for me, and I've played it three or four times now.

I might have thrown up in my own mouth from how ridiculous and flowery this is.

I'm not a fighting game fan, so can someone explain to me how it makes sense to release SF5?

They just released like the fourth update to their old game with new moves, mechanics and characters. How could they possibly make a sequel that is any different to that? They can't reinvent the fighting game, or change it dramatically or fans will cry foul. So is it just gonna be a new graphics engine?

Odds are that after this many years of updates to SF4, there's no way the new game will have as many characters or as much content, so what can they actually do to justify this as a sequel?
