Sometimes theres a series that doesn't excel or reinvent a genre, but just chugs along without being dogshit and does something that appeals to your tastes and keeps you interested for the duration. We all have those series, whats yours?

For me my go to would be the Resistance series by the devs behind Ratchett and Clank and the latest Spiderman game. At its core its a series of 1st and 3rd person shooters where the tunguska event in siberia was the start of a bioforming invasion/colonisation in the form of a mutagenic virus. So WW2 happens but instead of Nazi's its a case of "russia goes dark for years, then nightmarish creatures with advanced future tech start to progress out across europe".

Part of the reason i like it is why i think the mainstream didn't for the most part: it never stays the same.

>Resistance Fall of man: Weapon Wheel using linear shooter with health packs and a gritty almost sepia toned art style as an american GI has his first mission in manchester go arse up immediately but prove he is immune to the virus.

>Resistance: Retribution: A PSP 3rd person shooter where a british soldier had to kill his infected brother and went AWOL, taking out conversion centers the chimera use to speed up the transformation process across the UK until the events of Resistance end the war in Britain and he gets court martialed for desertion. Then the French take him on to take out a new brand of conversion centers as the chimera start to undergo a change

>Resistance 2: The soldier from the first game returns to the US as part of a project headed by an ex russian military scientist to make super soldiers as the chimera return in force to invade the US. Now a two weapon jelly vision shooter in a hard 1950's americana setting with a large progression based multiplayer side game

>Resistance: Burning Skies: PSVita heavily scripted shooter with touch screen/motion control gimmicks about a fire fighter during the first attack on america discovering a conspiracy involving the us government

>Resistance 3: weapon wheel and health packs return in and extremely bleak US where the chimera have wiped out almost all human life and are preparing to ice age the earth to match their home and a side character from R2 is found by the russian scientist after settling down in a bunker with his family to stop this and end the threat.

The games could never settle on a style mechanically or artistically and shooters tend to be successful in the mainstream based on how similar they stay and experimentation is never met with positive reactions so unsurprisingly the series never got mainstream appeal. But i really liked the setting and each of the games had memorable moments. Though the 3rd mainline game was really the only one to get the horror elements really well and for one of the last few PS3 titles looks pretty damn good for the hardware that was over a decade old by that point.

But i know its not popular and its still pretty mediocre, honestly if not for it carrying over ratchett and clanks idea of ridiculous alien weapons and the alternate ww2 setting i might not be interested in it either.

What games would you consider a 'solid 6' that you still enjoy a lot?

3484ee  No.16494351

I honestly think the story in the original Resistance was good. They used real events and build it up with a sense of mystery and unanswered questions to let your imagination speculate what happened. The gameplay was quite okay and the weapons were imaginative too. Then they completely abandoned all that for some focus-tested derivative sequel. It was really disappointing. I have a strong impression the original story for Resistance 2 was initially completely different, but CoD dictated their change in direction.

It's kinda funny though. Because R:FOM was considered average at release, but looks/plays like a fucking masterpiece if you compare it to current standards.

Activision O2.

Back when Tony Hawk ruled over alternative sports games, Activision was hungry for more. So they commissioned a handful of developers to make games under the O2 label. Barring THPS, none of them were received well enough to get sequels, and Activision O2 was dead in two years. To me, sports games are a guilty pleasure, and O2's lineup is actually pretty good. The problem lies in what they were up against: Neversoft was so good at making games that anything they released in the early 2000s would sell leagues above these modest efforts.

Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer is a personal favorite: The soundtrack fits the game like a glove, and the controls aren't too dissimilar from Pro Skater.

What's wrong with a fps not being hitscan? Also it's probably a deliberate decision to have bullets that can pass through objects appear in the wall for a moment or two before you actually take damage because that would just be bullshit and kind of annoying.

Resistance wasn't an amazing series but at least it tried to be novel and incorporate enemies and guns that actually made the game play differently against the backdrop of waist high wall cover shooters with 10 varieties of bullet sponge enemy games that were flooding the market at the time.

Shame about the

resistance's a good one, only played the first one but really enjoyed it, good online too

i don't know if it counts since there's only two games but kane & lynch is my favourite shitty series. i loved the characters, dialogue and all the unique locations (mostly the first one), just had a dirty and gritty feel to it but admittedly the gameplay itself isn't great

the online was one of the best i've played though, fragile alliance were you and about 4 others rob a bank/store and get to choose whether or not to betray each other to keep all the money for yourself (used to buy weapons/body armour for the next round), really fun shit, you also come back as a cop which was cool

Real bullets don't fly slow enough to allow you to pretend you're Neo from the fucking Matrix. They are fucking supersonic projectiles.

It felt rushed, a lot of little ideas that needed more fleshing out. It was decently optimized though.


The scorcher DLC is kind of short, I don't think it's worth re-downloading rage for it. The reward you get at the end is something you probably won't see in gaming anymore though it's a trophy room with a woman in a lewd outfit that is implied to be a trophy for you as well.

It's a turn based strategy/RPG kinda thing set in WW2, except you have vampires, magic, werewolves and other things like that added into the mix. Game felt right at home for me, but what turned me off is that the game forces you to play a certain way towards the end: If you're not a lightweight magic user, your equipment will slow you down, big time, and that means that enemies will move 3,4,5 times before you will, and just kill your guys, before you can take one potshot. Kind of pulls a suckerpunch on you there, because the game never pulls you away from USING guns, hell, MG42 is more effective than many spells in the game, and bazookas and other anti tank weapons are always needed, since you never know when a tank will appear out of nowhere.

Really, it's one of those games that is janky around the edges, it could have been something better if it was balanced to let you play how you want, I would have loved to see sequels set in the cold war and modern era, like the devs wanted to

Ultimately, what sunk it into "Eternally a solid 6/10" for me was the fact that swastikas are censored. Yeah, it's one of those games, I will never tolerate this bullshit. At least hitler gets some sick magic spells, and ends up being the final boss

I dunno, but I do know that this game was kinda in development hell, and it looks like a PS2 game specifically because it IS a game that was developed for the PS2, but the devs decided to port what they already had for the back-then brand new Xbox 360 for better performance

Also, the reason why swastikas were cut was because the english localization team had one guy, whose GF was jewish, and she literally cried when they were watching a holocaust movie that one time. Not even kidding, he then decided to request that the devs pull all references to the holocaust and all instances of the swastika out. The medic isn't even wearing a red cross on his armband, even tho the manual shows him wearing one, in the game, it is just a plain white armband. The devs cucked out, and the game wasn't as polished as it could be, and it's a damn shame, because it had so much potential

Current standards have fallen hilariously low.

All you have to do to make a hit FPS game these days is have flashy graphics, NUMBERS constantly flashing on screen and EPIC LOOT OBTAINED popping up every once in a while. That once in a while could be anywhere to every 5 minutes, to every 30 minutes ( lol Division 2) to once your payment clears.

That reminds me. I loved MAG.

>Shotguns actually shotgunned,they weren't bb-guns that vanished after 3 feet.

>Sniper Rifle bullet drop was insane.

>Game actually had accuracy and movement penalties for retards since Friendly Fire Full Damage was always in effect.

I still remember the first day I made Platoon Leader. I accidentally gassed my own bunker.

>The retards that knew how to use Company Chat and Platoon Chat always beat out the retards who only know how to use Squad Chat and Area Chat.

>Game was kryptonite to the Call of Duty fanboys who didn't get their instant gratification.

>Game attracted BF and SOCOM players who enjoyed Teamwork.

Also, speaking of Socom. Real shame about Socom 4.

Those were the days. Now it's all flashy shit or uptight shit like Squad and Arma. Yeah, there's some real bros in Arma but on a bad day you fun into the no-fun allowed crews.


Janky is a fucking understatement. That's like saying Vampire Rain was serviceable. That's like saying Deadly Premonition was graphically impressive.

Here it is. I should say that this has spoilers in the review, so scroll to the bottom for the interview, if you want to play the game

> When translating the game from Japanese to English, were there any sort of cultural sensitivities you had to observe, or vice versa, or were you more free to say things in English that would not be allowed in Japan?

<I remember watching “Band of Brothers” with my girlfriend for reference before working on the project. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of watching the concentration camp episode, and I should mention that my girlfriend was Jewish, with relatives who had been held in those camps. She didn’t handle the visuals very well, to say the least.

<In the game, the developers were sensitive enough to take these sentiments into account. Although the Holocaust is a significant and important piece of history, it was not specifically necessary to our heroes’ storylines or the development of their characters. Therefore, it is not explicitly referenced in the game, and we on the localization team decided their judgement was very sound. We took it one step further and removed all references to “concentration camps” altogether, just to be safe.

<We agree that, artistically, making people feel uncomfortable can have its merits, especially when trying to make a bold statement. However, we’re happy to report that in both the Japanese and the American versions, all parties are in agreement that the Holocaust is just not appropriate subject matter for this particular game.

<Other than that, there were no boundaries. There are incidents of torture, depictions of blood, and of course the requisite anti-German and anti-English slang words!

>The 50 Cent Games

The games may be just one massive Ego Trip for once respected rapper Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, but the games were a guilty joy to play anyway. Maybe it's because I used to be a fan of G-Unit before rap went to shit (way back before Young Buck got kicked out for wasting money). But the games on their own are massive guilty pleasures. Especially the Bonus Content and the Soundtrack.

Only later was I old enough to understand the stories, and they're pretty awesome for what they are. The awesome things about the shooting mechanics were the Counter Kills way back before Doom popularised it. And the Supporting Characters are out of this world. They actually got Dr Dre and Eminem in there, and they do an awesome acting job.

Do you have any different opinions?

That said the Fiddy games were surprising to me too. (BotS at least. Never played Bulletproof) A friend of mine got it as a "grandma gift" and they were surprisingly not shit. They functioned well enough as TPSes but the story was a special flavor of stupid that made it incredibly fucking entertaining. Only a complete stick-up-the-ass could play a game about an American rapper cutting a path of death and destruction across the middle east over a fucking shiny skull and not think it was the funniest shit ever. For fucks sake this game not only has a dedicated swearing button, but you can actually use your looted Middle Eastern gold to upgrade your fucking swears. I'd be surprised if the game wasn't intended to take the piss out of Fiddy and he was just too much of a uppity narcissist to notice.

>the hardware that was over a decade old by that point

The PS3 launched in 2006. Resistance 3 released in 2011. What are you smoking?


R3 brought back all of the wacky guns, which became even wackier as you used them because they passively leveled up. My personal favourite is the rocket launcher, which goes:

>rocket launcher

>rocket launcher with explosions along the rocket's line of fire

>rocket launcher with explosions along the rocket's line of fire, and the rocket carpet bombs the area beneath it as it travels

The characters were as compelling as they needed to be, too: the protagonist is gruff but loves his family, the scientist he travels with is very smart but also callous, etc. The game doesn't have unfunny characters screaming in your ear every few minutes, too, which is something I really appreciate because the levels are quite atmospheric when they want to be.

The only real negative thing I can say about the game is that it's downright kneecapped by its hardware. R3 runs at 30FPS, and even that dips when the larger actions scenes happen, or the screen fills with explosions. I'd love to see it receive a PC port, but nobody remembers it.


That's one specific gun, whose signature ability is shooting through walls. I can't imagine why you're complaining. Could you imagine if that gun were hitscan?

But if you really want to know of a better series, then I would say that series is The Elder Scrolls (with mods, bite me).

The only thing you prove is that Matt is a faggot, which is why the best friends split, because Pat and Woolie wanted to play games and he wanted to transition over to his shitty “Did you know gaming” tier variety show. Show me one other example of “soyboys” gushing over NMH.

You can't trust anyone who thinks No More Heroes is Remember The 80s shit.

Everything about the game mildly futuristic and the main character is a faggot NEET who decides to get off his ass and get knee deep in pussy. By murdering people.

Travis, while a shitty main character in a world full of excellent characters is anti-soy.

Every single licensed LEGO game. There is no such thing as a bad one but there is no such thing as a great one. They are fucking solid no matter how shitty the source material is. Every game has some sort of quirk or gimmick that I feel makes each one stand out compared to the others. Star Wars plays different from Indiana Jones which plays different from Batman which plays different from Harry Potter etc. I will say one thing, though. The voiced characters were a downgrade compared to the more emotive, charming and funny mimes that the older games had.

I agree on all points. They're an acceptable way to kill some time, and they're all varying amounts of good, but there's none that I would say would be a must-play game. I do hate that ever since TT took over making Lego vidya, we haven't really gotten much variety in Lego games. Back in the 90's and early 00's, there was a large variety of Lego vidya to choose from: Island, Loco, Creator, Racers, Rock Raiders, and others I'm probably forgetting. But ever since the success of Lego Star Wars, it's just been the same formula rehashed for the last decade+.

I also miss the gibberish from the early games. Really added to the humor and charm.

Any western AAA is overrated. Big budget, army of slave developers and zero creative work of game design. Everything is made to be standardized in these games. The gameplay work starts at the very end of the project when the writting and the cinematics with actors are done and is mostly made of scripts.

All No More Heroes games, including the mobileshit one, are pretty goddamn cool. Obviously the main character is built to be as unlikeable as possible by design. The "remember the 80s" shit is purely your own fabrication, my dude, that's more of a Hotline Miami thing, which is still a great game unlike its sequel which only had two good songs in it.


I mean, at least you kill up a shitton of literally-glow-in-the-dark CIAniggers at the end of the game so at least Goichi Suda knows who're the real enemies of Man.


All the games have a bunch of unique kinds of grind, in the first one the hardest thing is to deal with the shitty minigames necessary to get enough cash to buy in the assassination games. Problem with auteur games is that you can't really say whether they're being obnoxious on purpose or for technical problems. A shame though because when NMH is good it's really fucking great, when it's bad it's forgettable and never really bad. People will forget a lot of the games in favor of the good parts, and again, problem is that the people behind them KNOW this and relegate some important shit to jokes, like skipping half the lore through a fast-forward'd exposition that you can slow down and listen to if you're patient enough or give a shit about.


Actually it's established really early on that nothing really matters and that Travis is in a videogame. Like, actually acknowledging it's a vidya and he's in there. It's in the intro to the first one, even.


Only good thing about Uncharted was the humor and the gimmicks you could fuck around with like fatty drake, too bad it's insensitive so they have to put stronk independent negresses that can beat you up in the games

I don't particularly think the sequel was that good, at least compared to the original. Even in tone, the first had a much more memorable soundtrack. Couple of zingers in the second though.


More like the only truly Punk game out there. Tells you you're dumb for liking it and enjoys putting meaningless shit in front of you knowing you'll go the extra mile to see through the end, but it's still good on its own merits. You're thinking more of The Stanley Parable there with that comparison.


There's a longer, older version that doesn't use the same glitches and still does a huge amount of skips through other levels. Walls aren't there to stop you in this game, just to guide you.

Most of the reasons I hear why people disliked it was just for it being such a radical departure from other games in the series. I haven't played it since I was a mere baby boy, but I'll never forget it for its eerie, isolating, "lone survivor in a doomed world" type atmosphere where the few things left breathing are trying to kill you. Kind of like the feeling I got from my first run through Dark Souls.

I don't remember many references to the series beyond the beam katana and Dark Star. Travis' favorite media franchise is Pure White Lover Bizarre Jelly 5, which was a fanservice-filled loli magical girl series. Numales absolutely despise loli fanservice because they'd rather people fuck real children, so if anything Travis is negasoy.

Aliens: Colonial Marines sp campaign is a "solid 6/10 game" I happened to enjoy a lot - actually it's more a 6.5/10 or even 7/10 for me. I've played it back in the day and thought that it wasn't even nearly as bad as everyone was saying. I'll admit, while AvP 2010 is undoubtedly a more polished game, I had more fun with ACM

My guess is that maybe because of the franchise, people's expectations were just too high. Then again, I played the PC version, and apparently the console versions had more problems.

I recently played through it again (this time using the ACM Overhaul mod) and my opinion stands.

>I honestly think the story in the original Resistance was good. They used real events and build it up with a sense of mystery and unanswered questions to let your imagination speculate what happened.

I despise alternate history due to is close proximity to subversive historical revisionism, see Asscreed for examples. That said, Resistance was a decent series and worth playing thru quickly. Some cool environments. The aliens and weaponry were not so exciting. Resistance 2 has the honor of having my last gaming wow moment. There is a part where you are going thru sewers and coming out witness a vast space battle and my new and first HDTV captured it perfectly. I also have fond memories of the sawmill areas of the third game, capturing the feel of the times quite well.

It's a game and not a franchise, but I enjoy Time and Eternity quite a lot. It's a shame the developer went bankrupt.

The original Resistance feels like a mediocre Halo clone, it wasn't offensively bad but it definitely didn't hit anything out of the park for me. Pretty well paced overall and there was actually some pretty cool technology. Resistance 2 I hated and dropped within the first hour but 3 was an amazing game to me. It was legitimately one of the last good shooters I've played. The upgrading, the levels, the variety, it was all excellent.

Hunted: The Demon's Forge is probably the closest I have, since I'd say that 6/10 is a fair assessment for single-player mode. On the other hand, it's one of the last games released that seemed made for split-screen, and it does a damn good job in that one area. The story is nothing especially amazing, but the plot twist at the end is a nice fuck you to the scrubs that took the easy way through the game (though I can't imagine anyone who's enough of a bitch to not get the good ending on their first time through the game). The only real disappointment I remember was the final boss, who was a bit underwhelming.

It's a shame they never went and made other games in the series. Maybe not direct sequels, necessarily, but just further games in the series.

>The Driver Franchise + Stuntman

In my opinion, even the good games in the franchise aged horribly (except Stuntman), but they're fun to play non-the-less.

The only reasons to even play them to the end (even Driver 3 and San Francisco) is because of the glitchy appeal, awesome driving mechanics and stories. I mean, it's like watching a movie franchise go from its best to its worst and back to its best again.

Atari really fucked Reflections over and set a low precedent for modern game companies to take advantage of the wisest of second parties and wring them dry until they've outgrown their usefulness (I'm looking at you EA).

Stuntman was the only awesome thing that remained out of it, even with all of the cut content in both games.
