If I had a ballot, I'd put Donkey Kong, FF7, Solitaire and Myst in there.

Donkey Kong was probably one of the most iconic arcade cabinets of all time.

FF7 was groundbreaking at the time it came out, with the way it used polygons and 3d scenery, and it ushered in a new age of games.

Solitaire has been played by roughly 7 billion people.

And Myst, for whatever reason, was an iconic game that shifted umpteen million PCs.

The rest were good games (in many cases better than the four previously listed), but really didn't have that much of an influence or were just iterations on stuff that came before.

I could be persuaded for a case for Wii sports.

You can't honestly tell me that Street Fighter 2 didn't have much of an influence on gaming.. it's literally the cornerstone of every fighting game that came after it.

Starts great, becomes a hugely annoying boring as fuck grind later

It is very pretty to look at for a time...

Guess a trial of the first 35 levels is a good thing then, as I dont see myself subbing to an MMO, but want to experience a bit of what they made here at least. Square does craft some really beautiful environments.

Awesome. Always wanted to try FF XIV. MMO drudgery seems slightly more palatable with Square's art and music involved in the mix.

yea no shit, i barely get 60fps with high setting. don't know if the game is poorly optimized or ue4 engine just sucks ass for open world play

Its supposedly the top thing on their to-do list, hopefully the good sales will inspire them.

Definitely didn't inspire ARK to do shit about performance issues. Even if it performed well, people always set these to lowest settings because theyre solely competitive by nature, where every last fps and visibility tweak can give you an edge. usually this means lowest quality settings, like people did with quake in the competitive scene.

The first "open world" game I can recall playing was Auto Racing for the Intellivision. I remember finding out you could drive anywhere on the map instead of sticking to the track, and eventually you discover that all the race tracks in the game are comprised of one huge (for the time) open-world map. I don't think I ever raced the actual tracks more than once, driving around the 8-bit countryside unrestricted by invisible walls was pretty damn cool at the time.

on the PAPRIUM website, if you click a small link as the end of the small print on the bottom of the page, it will prompt you to enter a contest to win a PAPRIUM skinned sega genesis along with the game.

just a heads up for blues visitors =)

That fake news article link flagger isn't going to do shit about all the wackjobs who rant and copy/paste this garbage to their audience on Facebook. Just a token gesture on their part towards combatting the ignorant zombie hoarde they've been breeding for over a decade now.

PlayStation 3 Production Ending Soon In Japan.

Didn't realize they were still making these. I guess it makes sense, since some people probably have extensive libraries they'd like to keep playing.

How soon before we see a PS3 emulator on PC?

PS3 emulator for PC: https://rpcs3.net/

Still a long way to go but they are making regular progress.

Well damn, they even have Demon's Souls sorta working. That's pretty amazing. I would've guessed at least a decade, too.

The PS 3 is 10 years old after all...

The cell architecture used in the PS3 was difficult for even developers to work with, let alone reverse engineering the entire thing for emulation. PS3 is likely the hardest console to emulate ever made.

Bethesda gets a pass for re-using the same engine for 15+ years, with the same garbage animations

I remember very well the animations from Morrowind, and the ones in Skyrim and FO4 are not even close to as bad as they used to be in that engine.
Go back and play Morrowind for a while to get an idea of how much they have improved actually. Not to say they're great by today's standards for AAA, but they have definitely gotten better.

Anybody on here get Blackwake? That game looks pretty fun, albeit a bit limited, long term.

Haven't played Blackwake, but I did play the PVK2 map that inspired it. I'm a bit disappointed that Blackwake doesn't have the kraken like in the PVK2 map, which will randomly eat one of the ships if time runs out in sudden death. If both ships/crews get eaten, there is a second round sudden death inside of the kraken's belly with the remaining crews battling it out on what's left of their ships. One of the most fun game modes I've played.

My love for his older games makes me want to try this, but having seen updates of its development for a long while now I really don't think this is going to be any good at all.

Loved super dodgeball, and the arcade version in MAME was fun to experience as an 'upgrade' from the NES version.

I haven't played this in well over a year; have they done anything to improve on the horrible loading times yet?

It's been noticibly better for me since about fall of last year. Getting stuck after an event still happens sometimes if there is an issue with the host you are trying to connect to. In these cases hitting alt+f4 and relaunching is usually the best thing to do.. unless you have a friend online and you can join them quick from the overlay, which will get you out of the loading dead-end also.

The best way by far to take part in events is to just use the quick event option on the cellphone, which puts you on call for a lobby for whatever game mode you chose. That way you can fuck around in free roam while waiting for matches to start

Re-7b is one of the best stunt/racing cars in the game, if you don't have one yet pick one up during the sale and drop all the upgrades you can in to it. Well worth it.

Maybe with all the competition entering the vr space now, there will be a full game or some kind of flagship software package that makes it a must-have platform. At least prices should be coming down rather quickly. I'm really glad to have waited to get on the vr bandwagon.

Thanks to all the early adopters for keeping it alive!

I really wish they had skipped this and just jumped into the overdue Volta. I've been sitting on my 3gb GTX580 forever, waiting for a card capable of 4k@60 max settings. This won't be it still. Where the fuck is Volta? >=(

Really? Wow that is a long wait. I have to say I run 4K 60fps on most games with a 1080gtx. Max settings is such a minor difference I would drop that requirement. I run a samsung 48" quantum dot HDR TV as my monitor and it is jaw dropping based on color and resolution alone. Lower some settings to get 60fps is not a big deal. IMO this 1080Ti is an amazing upgrade at that price, buy 2017 samsung HDR tv and you will never look back.

I have to disagree with this given some recent tests I did with running GTA V on a 4k TV. Turning down settings like grass quality, which is essential to hit 60fps minimum at that resolution, ends up looking considerably worse than 1080p with the settings set higher with msaa. Although 4k looks sharper, the overall look of the environment suffers too much for it to be a decent trade-off. This is on an overclocked 980ti. I'm just glad that 1080p looks so damn good on a 4k TV, as it can easily scale down to an exact pixel aspect ratio.

Maybe this will be the card that allows people to maintain 60fps+ with max settings (including grass) in GTA V at 1080p+.
