What's your favorite city from a video game, /v/?
>>625364702is that cheydinhal?
Necrom in Tamriel Rebuilt is beautiful
>>625364913Good eye, anon, yes, it's Cheydinhal.
>>625365004is this beyond skyrim or something?
>>625365080Nah, just modded Oblivion, stuff like visible interiors and some basic texture works.
It's hard to pick, I like many.A lot of towns in Oblivion are just great too
>>625364702City in a video game? Probably VTMB's depiction of Los Angeles, it's so fucking grimy and disgusting but also atmospheric and beautiful, I both love and hate it and that just makes me love it even more If we're talking city that originates from a video game and isn't in anything else, probably Yakuza's Kamurocho because you get so intensely attached to it across the series that by Yakuza 4 or 5 you know each building and street off by heart and can tell when a store gets renovations in a sequel or gets replaced by something else, especially in Yakuza 6 where this is a major theme of the game
>>625364702Of course it's Khorinis.
>>625364913>>625365004Pretty sure its called Cherodyl
>>625366245jesus that looks terrible
Bump because this is the only moderately interesting thread on this worthless shithole of a board
>>625366245I would agree with you if it wasn't partially deserted compared to novigrad. It lacks a spark of life
>>625364702Too dark.>>625365465Too California.>>625366245Too medieval.>>625367312Too small.All of you assholes have terrible taste.
>>625368869>too california THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS CALIFORNIA ENOUGH
>>625369274there's a Hong Kong mod for Sim City?
>>625369426shit wrong image
>>625369426California sucks.Too hot.Too much traffic.Too much meth.No parking.Everyone's retarded.
>>625364702Dunwall from Dishonored. HL2 City 17 is atmosphere kino.
Town but close enough
I liked Paris from AC: Unity
>>625368869>he thinks anyone give a shit about his opinion
I like Ark in Enderal
>>625364913>>625365004IS that not the Great Oak in Chorrol?
>>625365208>basic texture work
>>625372336First time playing Dying light, it blew me away being up inside the tower and the windows were actual windows and not some decal. Was pretty comfy at night being on the lower floors looking outside, then going up the tower into your bedroom and just being comfy inside while all the worst of the worst were out that night.
>>625374119So not Cheydinhal
>>625373357>Was pretty comfy at night being on the lower floors looking outside, then going up the tower into your bedroom and just being comfy inside while all the worst of the worst were out that night.That's exactly how I felt. It also helps that you're up so high.
>>625373145>>625374119This is why I said modded Oblivion.Every city now has that.
Old Camp from GothicLove its feudal social structures, the atmosphere, the music
>>625370375What are your thoughts on Karnaca from Dishonored 2?
>>625375551>take unique feature from a city>soullessly add it to every single city
>>625376406Not the person you're replying to but..Karnaca had it's moments, but the environments felt really varied and inconsistent for all being the same city.You'd have these areas where the architecture and interiors were post-modern directly juxtaposed with slum houses filled with wasp nests and corpses.Then you have this thick jungle-like forest meshed with the city backdrop, but get to the Dust district and now it feels like a completely different city.Which technically was the intention because of the mines and it's negative effect on the area, but go back to DH1 and the Flooded District still feels like the rest of Dunwall despite being effectively just ruins of an abandoned part of the city.The Duke's mansion felt like the worst offender in this. Felt like some swanky rich person's SoCal mansion in the hills compared to the rest of the game. Complete tonal whiplash.
>>625365465>>625370375>>625379235These and Balmora
>>625368869>>625370252fuck off ben gibbard you pretentious cunt
>>625370721Great city in a shit game.
>>625364702Man I love all the cities in Oblivion it's hard to choose.
>>625380491Stalburg is a shitholeBut it's a shithole with a lot of character.
>>625383135I still don't understand how San Fierro felt as big as it did back then.
>>625367312Prague is pretty nice indeed.I also like Novigrad and Night City. The latter looks amazing even if the game itself is quite meh.
>>6253854612077 is the only game I want to be redone in VR so I can just walk around in it.
Kattleox Island, no contest.
I just think it's neat
The nameless City from Thief games.
>>625386226Oh yeah, that was really cool. I liked how the city was a weird proto-steampunk mashup but the wider world is implied to be a typical fantasy setting.
>>625364702thief 2 city
Detroit from Deus Ex. I wish I could go there.
The Town On GokhonHonorable mentions go to Balmora, Vizima, Khorinis and honestly, Night City. I don't like CP77 but I have to fucking appreciate the work that went into NC. It's just the game does not even begin doing it justice.
>>625369664how do you go from >>625369664 to >>625369426what went wrong??
>>625364702Gran Soren>>625367312Also nice
>>625390457I can never figure out how to get there, I wish the roads were signposted.
The stations in Metro games are peak kino, specially Venice
>>625364702LA from VtM: Bloodlines.
Good old Los Santos
I liked Lenele for it's sheer scale and some of the architecture, pity it's pretty barren and the game isn't all that great.
>>625372731BASEDSaved me from posting it
>>625390108It's the same from different perspectivesGuy on the rule book in standing right under a bunch of sky scrapers, the game screencap is from miles away from the city centerIIRC Pondsmith directly oversaw the design of the in game NC
>>625367312For me, it's Detroit
>>625382828IX has great, comfy cities>Lindblum>Alexandria>Treno
>>625385557I didn't remember Kattelox looking that round.I remembered it being shaped kind of like australia
W3's cities are remarkableI have the most nostalgia for AC series cities with its music and parkour tho.
>>625394270You don't spend much time along the coast. I never much thought about the shape of the island itself.
>>625364702Sotenbori.Especially the 1988 one.
>>625395220>tfw 1988 will never happen again
>>625370375TONIGHTI'M BRINGING DUNWALL TO LIFEAS I WALK THROUG WATERAND WALLS OF LIGHTYOU'VE HEARD THE KING AS THE URCHENS SING: REVENGE SOLVES EVERYTHING
>still no Fable 2 on PC
the comfy town in the forest covered in spiderwebs in Kingdoms of Amalur where you get your first house
>>625373357all the saferooms are super comfynever had that feeling of "now I am completely safe" quite like in that game also it's usually just a tiny room with a bed in a corner, the entire vibe is just "I am exhausted and I'm falling asleep the second I get in this tiny safe comfy space", I just loved it
Oblivion has so many cosy cities, its amazing how much they regressed for Skyirm
>>625364702The Border Village Dalihttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajXP20ewNGc
>>625399858>Cloud district>No clouds??
>>625387120What is that from?
>>625365004>>625365208I thought you were kidding, there's no way do a normal oblivion playthough this hard modded. It would crash a lot
>>625401813yeah but what level of what thief game?
>>625403254FOR THE GLORY OF AMN
>>625403254Waukeen's promenade is still kino to this day
>>625403254Thought this area was cool as shit the first time I played, everything on walkways above the canal
>>625364702Eleum Loyce from Dark Souls 2 DLC probably ranks at my top. I find it quite gorgeous even though you never leave the castle area.>>625370375>>625376406Shoutout to Dunwall and Karnaca, in that order. Dunwall has this cool industrial brutalist style mixed with victorian rich shit that I love. And Karnaca looks like a lovely sunny port city especially when viewed from the boat. I don't remember being as entranced once I was in the city levels though.It's a shame we'll probably never see more cool cities from Dishonored like Frozen Tyvia or the Wild Pandyssian continent. I love that dev teams artistic vision for that setting.
>>625403667>Slums visible in the northwestWhoa, I've never noticed that before.
>>625364702Gran Soren in DD has always felt like home to me.
>>625364702kelethin from eq1 obviously.the sheer number of people the lifts filtered out was hilarious.
>>625379235love this game. the aesthetic and atmosphere is unmatched. aged so well too
>>625404017Witcher 3 Blood and Wine expansion
>>625403792I think that's another part of the city, the Slums are in the south on the map. All the areas you can go to have more city visible around the sides you can't walk to so it's clear you're just visiting some specific sections and the actual city is way bigger.
>>625404017witcher 3 blood and wine expansion
>>625404151Nope, that's 100% the south east corner of the slums, and that's the north east corner of the docks in the bottom of the map.
>>625404308Actually, scratch that, that's the slaver hideout from the slums map down the bottom.
>>625402017for me, it's the smaller towns and outposts scattered here and there
close call between Dunwall and Karnaca but Karnaca is better to look at
Hengsha from Deus Ex. I love how sheltered the cities feel in Human Revolution in general.
>>625404695>>625402017jfc WoW is so ugly and soulless
>>625404695I always liked how the old Forsaken settlements were basically just them squatting in ruins and not even bothering to maintain them beyond the basic necessities (zombies do not have many necessities)Cata ruined it by turning all the Forsaken areas into fucking tim burton halloween town.
>>625404914Shut the fuck up zoomer
Walled City 99
carefree nostalgia - the city
>>625405103>what if le zombies were ... halloween evil!! sighI just wanted my melancholy "just barely want to live more than I want to end my own life" forsaken

>>625406980>>625382828>we will never have another final fanatsy that feels like a "fantasy" its truly jover

>>625407268XVI is literally that
>>625407452i dont now man, meaby im a nostalfag buy ff9 for me have always have this fever dreams fantasy setting that i havent found since them,meaby xenoblade was the closer thing i found.
Blackrock Depths - Shadowforge City
>>625406721Great zone, one of the best they ever did
>citygoodsprings, you city fag
>>625364702I thought that was the city hub from Thief 3 for a moment. That place had good atmosphere and it was really fun going through the first time, but it gets really repetitive the more you come back.
>>625364702whiterun from Skyrim. The city was so vast and expansive, it put GTA and cyberpunk to shame. I could get lost there for hours.
>>625409667Looks like shit compared to Knight.
>>625385780>Riften>Citylike 10 people live in it
>>625364702This is what Thief 4 should have been like, with some steampunk machines here and there
>>625410067Is this meant to be an argument or are you just repeating a call and response trained meme?
>>625365465For me it's Santa Monica. Whenever I see LA I have to think of the shitty zombie quest and the sewers...
Core City in Underrail (I can't put the whole thing in one picture)
>>625406721Fucking ADORED the background soundtracks. Sometimes I still listen to it while studying
The City. Home.
>>625364702Bioshock infinite - Columbia
>>625370375City 17 is really cool. I wish we saw more of it.
>>625364702Well if you have to mod it then does it really count?
For me it's Glacern
>>625376406nta but I loved KarnacaI liked the game in general, only problem was the story.
>>625389932>>625389932For me, it was VtM:B's Santa Monica for sheer atmosphere (even though it rarely rains in LA kek) until Night City dethroned it. Honorable mentions go to Kamurocho, Onomichi, and Isezaki Ijincho. If we can use VNs, then S;G's Akihabara from 2010, Tsukihime's 1999 Misaki Town, Fate's Fuyuki, and fuck man, I guess I really just like urban settings.
Even though Cyberpunk was a buggy pile of shit, Night City was amazing
>>625412601it's a very gloomy version of LA that appears to have stolen the weather from Seattle, even considering the smog.
>>625412440Best place in the game by far. I can hear the ice enemies' dying sounds in my head just by looking at it
>>625382828Too bad you never feel the scale when you are playing it
>>625385208I never understood why they made the towns so small? The trees could've been other houses, even if you could never go inside you would know it was a big city and not just four buildings
>>625367312Need to see if I can steal someone's 100% midgame saves so I can just sight-see the last two deus ex games, loved the china pod apartments in HR and MD's floating rock area was just kickass
>>625407436Fuck you for this feeling, God I hate japanese developers
>>625379235Feels like the first fresh warm air of spring just looking at it.
>>625364702Not sure which cross code city I like the most ,they are all rly comfy
>>625386226>>625387120Bros it hurts so much. I really liked sneaking around the City in T3, especially once you get the gloves and can go 3D
>>625413361Whoops, forgot picture
>>625413045carts were VERY space limited. That kinda thing takes room. We're talking the TEXT in English was changed to fit level of room. It has to do with how sprites are called up and what not, and that's why all early JRPGs had those 'towns' of like 6 houses.
>>625413249>Fuck you for this feeling,Misery loves company.>God I hate japanese developersSame.
>>625413493What? If they have trees they may as well put some houses, just make them inaccesible.
>>625364702>Nearby jungle ambiance and ancient Sith tombs>Edgy Imperial architecture>Constant thunder storms
>>625404914>zoomer>thinks he understands soul Kek
>>625413958The literal tortanic
>>625413841I know what you're suggesting and I agree it looks better, but every KB was precious. That tree background can be used all over a game but each town is going to need it's own 'fake outline', you know what I mean?
>>625366245I like mine better.

SILENT FUCKING HOOD FO' REAL NO CAP
>>625369274what game is this?
>>625414142Sorry nips, but I don't buy new SE games anymore. You faggots actually got so bad and so full of yourselves that you got me to stop buying your games after having bought and played them for decades.
>>625414103Chrono trigger was also in the snes and it was so much better in the art department.I love ffvi but I feel cheated after playing Chrono Trigger
>>625379235zoomers will never know the feel of getting this game on launch day and shoving the disc into your 360 for the first time and hearing the theme
>>625364702Very few know the pleasures of protecting undisclosed french city-village #1 from bots with your fellow sappers, infantry and cavalry in big bot survival.
>>625414356Chrono Trigger had a more clever solution to that issue by using the world map to imply you're only visiting one small area. I'll give FF6 a break though because it needed two versions of each town.

Tulga. It's where I first cut my teeth playing warband, and it's where I always yearn to be, no matter the mod.
>>625364702I like Whiterun from Skyrim. I spend 8 hours a day there in VR. I just sit at home, read books, tell Lydia to go to the market and buy ingredients for a meal, ask her to cook for me, fuck her doggy style, it's nice.
>>625370252The French Riviera is the better California
The City of Mind
City is the Best Arkham
>>625420756I prefer Knight.
>>625394270You're thinking of Calbania Island from Legends 2.
This and Crossbell
I really like modern cities, I know that's sort of soulless but I enjoy just walking around in games like Watch Dogs and Mirror's Edge Catalyst.Being able to walk around the concrete without feeling the heat or the loud noises is comfy.Source games really nail down cities and that whole concrete feeling to it you know
>>625414806>missed out on the limited edition bronze statue REEEE
>>625396698you can emulate it if you aren't an emulet
This town's finished...
>>625403254This. I just want some comfy brews and maybe take in some pit fights at the Copper Coronet. Or get in motion in Core City even if SGS is comfier.
>>625407436To be fair, the Moguri Mod does a phenomenal job re-scaling that background art to look equivalently well-defined as the few pieces of "original art" we have.Over 700+ different background art. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9uMcim5KEi8
>>625430153>Central Yharnam and Cathedral Ward are some of the best levels designed by From with the several shortcuts and interconnected paths>rest of the game is nowhere as good design-wiseDon't get me wrong, the rest of the game is great but it always felt weird to me how the game peaked at the start.
>>625430591If you think the second image in that webm you posted actually looks as good as this, you're either blind or are shilling a shitty mod you made yourself.
>>625430153Away, away beast!
>>625430854>that webmNo. That's a downscaled webm quickly made to fit 4chan's limited filesize.But the Moguri Mod's AI upscaling of 700+ FFIX background arts to fit whatever HD output you define for it, including a "full-map-width" parameter beyond 4:9, to be roughly equivalent to what other "original art from JK ROWELL" we also have?Yes.
>>625432276>No. That's a downscaled webm quickly made to fit 4chan's limited filesize.Then by all means, show me an uncompressed screenshot from the mod of that specific background that has all the detail of the angel's wings on the statue in the middle like the original asset I posted has.
Balmora FTW!It's not well designed, it's just a comfy place, it has comfy services and comfy aesthetics. It could be better though, it could use some more interesting characters going around, maybe a central authority who represented the corrupt Hlaalu government or something, but on the other hand maybe that's part of the charm? The fact that nothing ever happens there despite it being the central hub of most morrowind adventures.>>625430707That's classic Fromsoftware for you, you put at the effort on the begging to impress/hook up players, and then you can see how the money and time spent is more scarce as you go on.
>>625413286I've only just now noticed how much Morrowind's art style reminds me of Riven.That render looks exactly like a still you'd see in Riven if there were a night/day cycle.
>>625432413I do not have access to the uncompressed direct files used in the Moguri Mod for its AI upscaling, but sure.Here's that same "Alexandria Banquet Hall" taken as a screenshot of my laptop screen paused over that very same Moguri Mod trailer.I'm fairly certain downloading and applying the actual mod to a Personal Home Computer capable of actual high-quality output than this Lenovo would result in an even larger, more crisp and supportive still-shot of this location in Final Fantasy IX.And J.K. Rowell's other renders, such as>572x800 Airship Stage>640x540 Burmecia Armory>642x67s Black Mage Village Chocobo Nest>1500x1063 Alexandria PrisonThe Moguri Mod is diligent in re-creating, and inserting, upscaled equivalent art at even higher dimensions than J.K. Rowell, himself, has shared on the internet of his few scenes he was asked to draw.It does that 700+ times. Of every scene.I, too, would love it if someone would share each of those upscaled background images! It's far better quality than simply pressing "Zoom" + sign magnifying glass.
>>625433465>Here's that same "Alexandria Banquet Hall" taken as a screenshot of my laptop screen paused over that very same Moguri Mod trailer.And it looks like garbage compared to the original I posted, specifically the angel's wings I mentioned.>And J.K. Rowell's other renders, such asAre you an ESLfag or a bot? Your posts are incomprehensible.
Town map from zombie panic, co-op horror, free on steam
Most of the cities and towns in Fable were all unique and had some kino settings and comfy charm. Knothole glade is my favorite, but the apple orchard you go to is also kino
>>625432419I don't know man, the peak has a different placement in other Souls games. I'd say DaS1 is in the middle with Anor Londo while Elden Ring is way more in the end game with Leyndell (I know it can also be seen as a middle point but the game is straight up giving you end game material at that point).
>>625434543Leyndell sucks. Only the first trip to Caelid was good.
>>625434595I hardly disagree. It's the most coherent and decent attempt of a large scale city that From has done. It doesn't have the atmosphere of Yharnam or the epicness of Anor Londo, but the amount of content and enemy placement makes it up for me.
>>625434801>I hardly disagree. It's the most coherent and decent attempt of a large scale city that From has doneIt's a bunch of streets thrown into one area with a couple buildings and no actual attempt to make it into a real city.
A special kind of nostalgia binds me to this place.
>>625434195My nigga. Always liked Fable's locations. The world wasn't huge, but it had a nice aesthetic.
>>625434195>Fable 2>The original town is a haunted shithole
>>625433923I see, you're simply being an "internet asshole" because it's a fun role to play on 4channel.org.Oh well. I'll talk about myself, for your sake: I'm a 35-year-old man who also enjoys FFIX, especially for its use of background images as maps for its 3D models to "interact" with to simulate 3-dimensional travel on a 2d plane (as Square is also known for doing in other Final Fantasy titles, like VII and VIII). I am also aware that the company, Square, has "lost" its original master-copies of those games and their associated art. However, there are a few artists, assigned 3rd-party to draw a few of those images/maps for those games who HAVE kept their own master copies, though it totals to an extremely small percentage of the games' total. One such artist is Jake L. Rowell.https://www.jakerowell.com/blog/gallery/final-fantasy-ix/for examplehttp://www.jakerowell.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/final_fantasy_IX_jakerowell_design_evilforest9.jpgYou have posted one image from his collection. Purposefully of not, you actually posted the "largest" of all his jpg files he has shared. The "Alexandrian Banquet Hall." All his other files are actually of smaller dimensional size and would, themselves, require post-effect upscaling as well to reach "HD" output.Moguri Mod does a very good job of applying that post-production AI upscaling, and it does it to all of the FFIX background maps. It does it so well, in fact, I would rate it nearly equivalent to the few examples of original artwork we have available to us (if downscaled to meet J. Rowell's jpg dimensions)! It's wonderful! You seem upset by the use of hundreds of hours of critical AI mathematical upscaling followed by human artist critical editing and its application as a "mod." Offended, even.Incidentally, here is another "original" artwork from other artists (namely Kusanagi Studio) of those lost files that I would love to see a sort of Moguri Mod replicate for games like FF7 and FF8.
>>625418981I'm more of a Shariz man myself. Something about the edge of the desert, by the sea, with hookah bars.
>>625435163Pelican Town... home...
>>625435110Or perhaps the iced-skating rink in Galabadia Garden. I'd love to see a Moguri Mod of FF8 for all that artwork.
>>625435110You're not a real person.
>>625435206Or part of the Wall Market of Final Fantasy 7. I feel a Moguri Mod type AI upscaling would be a more generally approved "remake" that the FF7R we received from Square-Enix.
>>625435110>I see, you're simply being an "internet asshole" because it's a fun role to play on 4channel.org.What the fuck am I reading?
>>625434982>>625435061Yeah, the cities were so comfy and all so varied. Oakvale was a nice wooded farmland on the bay, Knothole glade was kino and lush PNW evergreen and ferns and rain, etc. If they ever release Fable 4 hopefully they can recreate the charm.
>>625435256I'm very real, bro.As much as you and I can agree that we both would LOVE to see full-sized digital representation of all the original mastercopies of the background art from Final Fantasy, I'll go one step further and appreciate the products created like Moguri Mod.Heck! You and I are only posting STILL IMAGES... many, or maybe even most of those backgrounds are MOVING VIDEO files!Can you imagine a 4k version of this image? Wonderful!
>>625364702While not a city, Solomon Island from Secret World (Legends). Cozy, nightmarish, New England town, lotta crazy ass history.For an actual city: Praetoria from City of Heroes.
>>625365465>it's so fucking grimy and disgusting but also atmospheric and beautifulDitto for Hengsha in Deus Ex: Human Revolution
>>625435187least it was before I fucked it all up
>>625402017For me it's Ironforge
>>625403254Baldur's Gate mogs this disjointed mess of a city.
>>625436928What did you do?
>>625365208>basic texture worksWhy lie this hard
>>625433923>>And J.K. Rowell's other renders, such as>Are you an ESLfag or a bot? Your posts are incomprehensible.Anon is a shill (although the mod is good) but how is there a single thing hard to understand? Are you one of those retards that think you can't start English sentences with "and", or use verbless clauses?
>>625370252Basically. I moved here about five years ago. I’ve never lived in a place where people are this dumb.
>>625441052>disjointed mess>has actual clear districts with focuses instead of a general mishmash
>>625441401Drove a tank through town. Crushed Clint's shop, destroyed the town square, ran over Pierre. They wanted to sue for damages but I crushed their legal office as well before fleeing.
For me, its Rattay
>>625441693>Are you one of those retards that think you can't start English sentences with "and"You can, but not the way he did. What he wrote was a sentence fragment. He's absolutely missing a clause, and you're illiterate if you want to pretend otherwise. That aside, his entire post is a trainwreck of incomprehensible English and non sequiturs that don't actually address what I said about comparing those images. He just starts ranting about the resolution of a few images posted online by an artist, and the resolution of backgrounds in the mod which has fuck all to do with the detail being raped by the AI upscaling.Don't try to get into a nitpicking argument about English if you can't follow what the posts were talking about because you have a chip on your shoulder from when your old teachers yelled at you for starting sentences with the word and. There are some right ways to do it, and many more wrong ways to do it.
>>625441693You can't start a sentence with "and" and then follow it with a verbless clause. You're a retard if you pretend you can. If you do want to pretend you can, then post a single actual example in published and reviewer writing or fuck off.
>>625364702Stormwind. I want to go back to 2004.
>>625442069Artist somehow made it look quite big.
>>625364702I have a soft spot for the Citadel in Mass Effect 1, even if it's pretty simple by RPG and open-world standards. Beyond that, I really liked Night City in Cyberpunk. Even if it needed two more years of damage control to make it work properly.
I wish it were used properly
>>625443558This also how they still haven't fixed Exodor and Silvermoon without loading into a whole separate zone still bugs me
>>625364702>favorite city from a video game, /v/?The City
The Hub in Fallout 1
Everything about Taris is so comfy to me
>>625446001Seconded. A lot of people say it was a slog, but I think that's just because it's the area people have repeated the most on unfinished replays of the game.The undercity is bland, but I really liked everything up top.
>>625364702I always liked Kensington in MediEvil 2
Tatsumi Port Island, home.
>>625446137Is this Tibia or some Ultima?
>>625416006I really loved those cloud effects early gta's had, it gave the atmopshere a good touch
>>625364702Night CityOther ones that come to mind are Novigrad and Beauclair from TW3, the Imperial City, Balmore from Morrowind, LA in VTMB, Baldur's Gate (really really looking forward to see its BG3 incarnation).
>>625379235It's unreal how gorgeous they made that city look. I would often stare at distant points and wonder how fun it would be to explore it.
>>625365465This by a longshot, followed by Anor Londo from Dark souls and Los Santos from GTA V
>>625366245Novigrad was better. It looked and felt alive, Beauclair is pretty but it's like a theme park fake city.
>>625370375I really don't know why Dishonored didn't leave an impression to me, it has multiple ways to progress a level, lethar or non lethal, many optional quests, everything i desire a game to have, but when I'm playing something seems off and I can't figure what is it.Is it the cartoonish design, the superhero abilities, mediocre story, lack of immersion? I don't know.
>>625452824>Is it the cartoonish designThat's part of the game's charm and SOVL>the superhero abilitiesWhat's wrong with those, they're fun>mediocre storyI don't disagree> lack of immersion?That's just you m8 I think
>>625452991you sound like one of those people that likes marvel movies
>>625364702IDK probably some comfy JRPG shit or maybe clock town
>>625452824I had a similar feeling. I think the biggest problem I had with Dishonored was how gamey it felt due the stat screens at the end of every level. I don't need to know how many coins, paintings and charms I found / missed. I don't want to know about the chaos system when I first play the game. I don't want to know about the "didn't kill anyone" and "undetected" status. Yeah, I can just ignore all of that, but on a first playthrough it feels like you're encouraged to find all of the shit, be completely undetected and non-lethal and that kind of ruins the immersion and appreciation of the world because I have all of those useless metric in the back of my head. Also they shouldn't have been pussies and disabled all of those gamey HUD markers.
>>625453215The only marvel movies I've genuinely enjoyed were the first avengers one and winter soldier, the rest were boring, had retarded stories, too much whedonspeak and tried to do too manycharacter arcs at onceWell I liked Sam Raimi's Spidermans too but I don't count those as modern marvel
>>625453559>disabled all of those gamey HUD markers.You can do that yourself in the game options
>>625453732read the post that anon was replying to
>>625453650I know and I always do now but when I first played the game I just left them on because I had no idea if the game is designed in such a way that you can find your objective from in-game clues only.
>>625453873does the room serve as your base? Is it only accessible during the initial portion of the game because it looks really cozy and im debating on whether or not to play dying light
>>625454182i dont know anon i havent played it
>>625454182It's available throughout the game. I haven't played Dying Light in a long time, so I can't remember exactly, but for most of the game the tower that you live in is a central hub that you keep coming back to. You might spend a night or two at a safehouse somewhere else because you couldn't get back in time, but for the most part you'll always be returning to the tower. Around halfway or maybe two thirds of the way through the game you go to a new area, but you can still return if you want to.
>>625454808Is Dying Light a good game? How about the sequel? I've been wanting to find a game I can really get into for a long time with exploration, sandboxing, etc
>>625455013Yeah, it's pretty good. I've never played the sequel though.
>>625365004>>625365208>basic texture worksI can't even recognize where that's supposed to be in Cheydinhal
>>625453559>stats screenMaybe it's that too, Thief also had this but it didn't tell you if you missed some loot, it had a goal of x amount of coins you had to collect and that's it, on Expert difficulty which it is the way Thief should be played you had to collect some extra items or you couldn't finish the level.Thief is another example why a game should have restrains, you're playing a character where you have no chances on combat, stealth is mandatory in order to progress, in terms of immersion Thief got it right and it's something that is missing in most of games.
>>625455981Looks like shit
>>625385298Ah the poster of Baldur's gate has awoken. It is time for more random street encounters.
>>625446001>>625446608Yeah I'm the complete opposite. I see that image and have to physically restrain myself from getting upset about having to go up and down the levels and from one end of the map to the other to trigger the story. I can bear with it once I'm down with the rakghouls because it's pretty much a straight line at that point but fuck me I've done Taris one too many times.Weirdly I can cope with Peragus and Telos, I guess because while they too are a slog, they're technically straight lines. A STRAIGHT LINE THAT SHOULD BE EASY TO WALK YOU FUCKING CZERKAN RETARD.WHY DID THEY PUT THOSE TWO BOXES IN THE HALLWAY HE'S FUCKING STUCK AGAIN.
>>625390945All roads lead to Gran Soren
More of a (ghost) town but close enough.
>>625407215based, my favourite part of the game
>>625407067Never seen it from that angle before, thanks for that.
I quite like Saint Denis in RDR2
>>625370375Dunwall is the kind of setting I want more games in. Not even more Dishonored games, just different stories and styles of gameplay set in the that city. A slow paced adventure game, an rts game, a simple action fps.My dream game would be something like the gameplay and story of Pathologic 2 but set in Dunwall.
>>625412440Is this Dungeon Siege? I tried that one and I got pissed off at how I couldn't even look at the action, you have to keep your eyes peeled on your parties health bars because they can go down so quickly. Maybe I just suck at arpgs.
I like the starting village more but this is what google gave me.Also fuck the jew who invented webp.
>>625364702Spagonia from Sonic Unleashedhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWZ0cgwsWGIVery comfy
>>625404914It's the epitome of soul
My answer is Balmora but here is a webm of my favourite city "skybox".
does multiplayer count?for me, it's koth_king (and mvm_mannhattan)There's something about these maps. They just make me wonder what is outside the playable areas. I would love to explore a city in the TF2 universe.
>>625379235>>625385864>>625432512YOU HAVE CHANGEDI HAVE CHANGEDJUST LIKE YOUJUST LIKE YOU
>>625379235Color palette aside, what also made it special was the perfect mix of realism and sci-fi. It felt like a real, lived-in city with just the right touch of futurism and utopian glow. In 2007 that's what I imagined cities 2020ish were going to look like.Catalyst fumbles that balance by putting too much sci-fi into the mix (in both style and plot), which retroactively makes the original all the more impressive. Credit where credit is due, Catalyst has a killer score https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pl-7AlC47rI
>>625365208>basic texture works.I could tell it was probably oblivion but jeez anon there's nothing basic about that
>>625457971webp's not working on 4chan is 4chan's fault, not the format's
>>625460030>Credit where credit is due, Catalyst has a killer scoreSolar Fields really pulled the game through as I didn't really enjoy roaming Catalyst's city all that much, it was like walking through a cardboard representation of a city, you could see how it was fake and just a prop, despite their attempt to make it look inhabited, with NPCs and what not. And the City in the original Mirror's Edge felt like a place where people lived, despite the fact that you don't see non-hostile NPCs in the game outside of story related events.
>>625386393Yep, nostalgia time
>>625414419>>625414502>>625414601My nigga. Are the vs bots servers still alive? Last time I checked they were almost all empty
seattle in prey 2017 looks pretty good. idk how to get out of the apartment though.
>>625435163>winter night walk in Pelican Town
>>625460030every area past the first one in catalyst is a visual nightmare imo
>>625464906To me, the most ridiculous looking place is that shopping mall they have.
>>625465861for me its the cod4 version
