1cc is a pointless waste of time.

>> No.5473649

>>5473609
It's no more of a waste than trying to accomplish something in other games. 1CCs are a fun challenge. When you have unlimited credits, you pretty much have to limit yourself to keep it interesting, even if it's more than 1 credit. Some games won't even give you the true ending unless you 1CC them, and if you play games for score you'll have to try to 1CC to get the best scores (usually games reset the score to 0 if you continue, or add something to indicate the number of credits used).

Plus somebody who can 1CC a game probably understands the design on deeper level than somebody who hasn't, which helps when writing about it. Not to say people can't say interesting things about a game they haven't 1CC'd, it would be absurd to say only people who have 1CC'd a game can discuss or review it.

While that particular 1cc isn't needed, an experience of 1cc'ing different games very much is. I mean in theory nothing stops someone from learning every game to a satisfying extent without ever going for a 1cc, but in practice that's not how it goes. The difference in experience is always very clear, which is a big part of the reason why arcade game articles suck and are incomplete. It's similar to mainstream outlet reviews of fighting games, which give only the most shallow review that has next to value to anyone who actually wants to play these games beyond button mashing.

Hi, resetera.

Your folk already are the watchdog ideologues censoring games at Sony and Nintendo and game journalists who call for problematic retro games to be purged. You are no brave "resistance". You are the authoritarian censorious soccer mom mob du-jour.

HG101 is the website that says fandoms hating on she-devils in square jrpgs that happen to be cunts with a cunt (like the princess who caused the big bad of live a live to snap, or the NTR heroine in bahamut lagoon) is an act of mysoginy committed by the developers, the fandom and even the fan translator of the game, which it implies it exported a sexist campaign to the anglosphere singlehandedly and needs to account for it.

You don't get to call your exercices of authority "resisting".
You don't get to call your crusade on the concept of escapism a fight against "boring" enemies.
You don't get to lump everyone opposing or mocking your shit or pet crusades under the same umbrella of so-and-so "politics" because they don't join your "resistance" and by default become the "enemy" or "reactionary forces" of the "status-quo" (such a mcCarthy-esque thing to say)

I agree. A review from someone who knows the mechanics and how to play the game well is going to be more valuable to people interested in playing it seriously, and the difference is obvious. I just meant people who don't understand the game on that level can still offer their perspective, which could be interesting in its own way as the impressions of a casual player, or they could discuss things like art and music without problems. But yeah, even though they could review it, I'd be more interested in a review from somebody with a decent understanding of the game. It does get frustrating seeing "professional" reviews where the author clearly doesn't know what they're talking about.

Maybe it would help if reviewers noted their level of experience with the game they're reviewing, so the reader knows where they're coming from.<div class="like-perk-cnt">🐱</div>

It's reasonable to be against hamfisted, poorly written politics in games. I understand people getting annoyed with shallow politics, especially if that becomes the focus of the game.

Over many months, too well timed reposts between both sites (complete with arguments started on one and completed in the other site, and would you know, they complain directly about the EXISTENCE of people who hold opposite opinions than theirs on /vr/)
There's that suspicious rise in indie self-promotion.

There's that increasingly aggressive shilling for the opinion nineties game censorship is actually good.
That policy is universally mocked, even by nintendo themselves when the policy was in full swing ("You k-k-destroyed my brother!!") , except... for resetera, the only website in existence that other than calling for modern game censorship, feature topics like "what's your favorite case of game localization cuts" (and to a lesser degree the hg101 forums but they're a neofag/resetera spinoff often with the same thread titles and same users, it's somewhat pathetic)

Contributor here, as I mentioned somewhere in the thread, I'm a centrist with a little dose of right-wing and rape is rape - it's bad regardless who does it. I wonder if fellow contributors see me as a HITLER because of my stance on this problem. There's lots of people who don't want multiculturalism forced upon them for a reason, and forcing it will only cause more support for radical anti-immigration groups, which in turn will lead to big social unrest. If anyone's to blame for that, it's radical leftism, but they're gonna blame regular white heterosexual guys like me. And that's why I'm centrist, because far-right is equally dumb.

Oh, and by the way - I browsed through ResetEra for a while and found this:

I'm not flaunting my political beliefs because I think it's pointless on a gaming site, of all places. And didn't I mention that I don't give a single fuck about that whole Gamergate thing? I barely even noticed this happened.

The degree to which some people fret about Gamergate is absurd. I've seen people talk about it like it was a national tragedy or something, rather than internet drama.

So what? I don't care about that.

This is what I want to say - both sides of this absurd conflict brag about it to this day, while I just... uh, play games and write about them? This whole "scandal" doesn't bother me much.

I don't care about Gamergate and similar dramas since I've got no business in caring about them. I just write reviews, that's about it.

Did you miss the part where if you don't care or take a side, then you're a filthy fake centrist enabling the status quo that benefits white supremacy / complascent useful idiot enabling sjws to take over gaming by not joining their side?

Most of this thread is all about whether games, and game discourse, are allowed to be apolitical at all. Shouldn't you have got a clue by now?

>> No.5477357

If I search for a game and they are the only english result, including ancient forum posts, archived vr posts and there is no video after also checking nico THEN I will read hg101. Also all of that only happens if I can not just play the game myself for whatever reason.

He means "let alone." "Yet alone" might not be correct technically, but it's a relatively common twist on the phrase I thought.

Can you cite one legitimate use of "yet alone"?

I didn't mean to say it was legitimate, only that you hear people say it sometimes.

I'll take near anything as "legitimate". I think you've never even really heard it.

Aren't you getting triggered by trigger warnings? It's literally one sentence in an article, if it doesn't apply to you move the fuck on. I agree that it's pretty stupid in pretty much any imaginable case, but god damn do you /pol/tards get upset over the dumbest shit.

Is anyone actually calling for these games to be banned? Are these "book burning endeavors" or mere critiques? If the SJWs are wrong then let them be wrong in the free market of ideas, no?

There are surely plenty of games that are apolitical but insisting that every game must be seems like willful self-delusion. I like Tetris as an example of a 'purely apolitical' game for the sake of discussion, but even then I'm tempted to speculate on how it might reflect Soviet-era philosophies on conformity and cooperation.
