@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

Lets try this hypothetical question

Say you walked into a gamestore with eleven bucks and no idea of what you wanted and spoted the 9.99 dump bin how you go about priotizeing what you would like?

Mine would go like this

Mecha
Piloting
Fighter
Racer
Shooter
FPS
RPG
Platformer
Arcade
Puzzel

Ball sports are not even on my list I own the only three sports games I want

Hmmm, RPG would probably take first priority but I'd just as soon priority a Platform game...

It'd probably be something like:

RPG/Platformer (depending on my mood that day)
Survival Horror
Music Rhythm
Mecha
Shooter
Fighter
Arcade
FPS

There is little hope for a Puzzle game to catch my interest, and there's no chance a racing or piloting game would catch my interest at all. It 'could' happen, but I wouldn't count on it.

As for sports, hell no. I own two sport games to date: MegaMan Soccer and RibbitKing

Depending on my mood, RPG or action/platformer takes the top spot. I like fighters and Guitar Hero as well. I don't care much for strategy games, and the closest I usually come to a shooter is Mega Man.

I don't play sports games. I'm not interested in the real thing, no way I'm playing a video game version.

Also depends on my mood, but here's the general priority: RPGs, Detective-type (eg. Phoenix Wright), Music/rhythm, puzzles/brain exercise. Sometimes I'll pick up a simulation, action, fighting, or platformer game. Once in a great while I'll poke around in a tactical game, though I quickly lose patience. The only "sports" games I enjoy are ones like DDR or Wii Sports. And then you get games that don't really fit into a category like Katamari. icon-fire.gif

I like FPS's, that being said they either have to have 1. a good storyline to go with or 2. some degree of tactics/strategy beyond "spray bullets at everything", preferably both.

I also enjoy action games with puzzle components like Mario, Lego Starwars, etc.

I wouldn't call myself a puzzle game fan, though I can be fascinated by tetris for hours.

I don't like sports games - I'd rather play the real thing if I must - and I find myself getting disoriented, if not motion sick, playing racers or flying games with the "you in the cockpit" look. occasionally FPS's will do this to me as well, though not as badly (probably because the scenery doesn't move as quickly.) Again, having had real planes and real cars, sims just aren't the same. And I don't care for fighting games...I don't mind fighting bosses etc to advance, but I get bored when the game is nothing BUT fighting.

Don't really mind. If a games' decent and worth playing, it's, err, decent and worth playing regardless of the arbitrary idea of "genre".

Still, I know I won't play. FPSes because they aren't really my thing in terms of personal taste (I'm neutral about them). Oh and turn-based RPGs, which I genuinely detest.

Probably easier to list my least-favorite genres....

3D Shooters(oddly, I rather enjoy a good side-scrolling shooter, though I must admit I royally suck at them) and sports games.

Though even then there are exceptions...(Bioshock comes to mind)

I will admit that quirky, gimmicky games are a guilty pleasure of mine... Things like Super Monkey Ball, Katamari or Boom Blox have a strange appeal to me.

If digging through a discount bin, I'm assuming it's old/outdaed games.

So shooters are out of the question. As fun as they are (one of my favorite genres), they are dependent on graphics. When you play Gears or Halo or COD 4, there is no playing Prey or Quske 4 afterwards.

So I'd say

1) RPG (old RPGs are just as good, if not better than new ones.)

TIED WITH

1) Music (I love DDR and all the variations. Guitar Hero as well. Old games NEVER lose interest in this genre. They are just more songs for the same game.)




2)Platform
3)Franchise (Sonic, Mario, Metal Gear, Megaman, etc... Things I grew up with and buy the moment I see the name)
4) Racing. Arcade style street racing and futuristic racing. NO SIMULATORS (no fun).
5)Puzzle
6) Miscellaneous

Whatever Rock Band is categorized as, that's my number one. Arcade maybe? Other than that, I tend to go for platformers and RPGs (Ratchet and Clank, Jak and Daxter, Fable, Kingdom Hearts). Fighting and FPS would be next, with Racing all the way at the bottom.

I dissagree. Rock Band and Guitar Hero are NOTHING like playing the real thing. It's just a game meant for the player to have fun, and that's exactly what I had playing them. Fun.

I'd suggest trying them first if you haven't yet before taking that stand. If you have played them and decide it's not your thing, then hey, your choice.

I have played all the games I just will NOT play anymore. That includes sports games, which are as dull as I figured, and puzzle games like Tetris, which I realized is very repetitive and boring after about an hour of gameplay. As for racing, just could never get into them. Few execptions.
