Never said that, projecting retard.
>>
>>2770721
>>2770727
It's not seethe it's boredom. Todd and Bethesda have managed to somehow master the art of making the blandest, emptiest and boring game design imaginable become not only a universal critically acclaimed commercial success but somehow continuously trick young impressionable people into believing its art and mastery too for multiple generations. Ever hear the saying " there's a lot of dumb motherfuckers out there"? or "ignorance us bliss"? How about, and this one's for the ages
"OP is a faggot".

because it costs nothing for me and it wastes your time and mental capacity to take it personally, deconstruct it, defend it, reply with wit, ridicule, to hold on to it instead of having the realization how meaningless it is and how it literally doesn't matter

you fags build entire identities around meaningless shit and that's why it's so easy to poke holes in you and your dumb shit
>>
>>2770802
Exactly, there's a difference between discussion of media and being an obsessive fanboy who built an identity so far up their ass they can't tell the forest from the trees anymore. If at least half of the people making these threads would have this realization, there would be much higher quality discussion of our entertainment, instead children, manchildren and femoids focus on the most inane, useless, meaningless garbage possible just to get their precious bumps and yous like a bunch of attention whores.

You're a retard. It's the zoomers pretending they play that shit game because their soi e-celeb shilled it to them as le unique and le underrated Elder Scrolls entry.
>>
>>2771587
Morrowsisters feel threatened by it. They can't deflect criticism like they usually do because Daggerfall is older and Morrowind is a dumbed down and more casual version of it. This makes them angry and they are lashing out.
>>
>>2771587
why do newfags think you have to be mad to shit on a game? i actively enjoy it, puts a big smile on my face.
>>
>>2771638
Because people still like to assume faggots like you are not just shitposters who get jollies from making threads worse for the sake of some kind of lols and that this board is different from /v/.

But even if it's smaller scale, it's the exact same shit. Hollow anger, contrarian posting and no depth in arguments beyond 'lol you mad'.
>>
>>2771587
Daggerfall Unity made it more accessible to retards. It filtered them hard and now they shit their pants every time a thread pops up.
>>
>>2771644
i mean the game does suck too, randomization doesn't work outside of roguelikes. bethesda are the laziest rpg developers ever to exist and morrowind's worldbuilding depth was a fluke. there's just no point in posting critique when some kid is just gonna reply "seethe more" or some shit.
>>
>>2771651
>randomization doesn't work outside of roguelikes.
Wrong. It works everywhere and is explicitly desirable in rpgs and strategy games.
>>
>>2771652
not with regards to quest and dungeon design. the simulator shit ends up feeling very hollow because rewards are often not commiserate with danger or tedium. especially this is a problem in first person because exploration becomes redundant when anywhere is functionally the same as anywhere else. look at oblvion, random loot in chests regenerates, so there's no "wow, i found this cool thing that was in this place", you could just farm the same spot. it's all very shallow and based around making less work for the devs because everything is recycled and on a table.
>>
>>2771657
i should also add, to me dungeon design is a huge part of rpgs going back to graph paper days. i don't want to explore random shit except in a roguelike where the objective is more focused on survival in every single move.
>>
>>2771626
You seem like a very angry and unpleasant person.
>>
>>2771737
He's not wrong. This gen lends itself to playing games as a social phenomenon more than anything else. It's completely true that you won't really find people that play games unless some dumbass on youtube told them about it. There's nothing inherently wrong with it in the short term but it creates this type of discussion and culture long term.
>>
>>2771821
You're the only one who mentioned ecelebs.
>>
>>2771823
I'm a different poster here. If you deny reality then there's nothing to discuss. E-celebs influence this generation in massive numbers, as evident from millions and millions of views and engagement regarding it, not to mention the sales and marketing aspect of our industry.
>>
>>2771637
>Morrowind is a dumbed-down Daggerfall
LOL there is nothing in Daggerfall that's complex enough to be dumbed down.
>>
>>2771652
RPGs are supposed to mimic heroic fiction, and need narratives to move the action forward. Not endless randomly-generated dungeons FFS,
>>
The advantage and disadvantage system in Daggerfall was so cool. It's heavily abusable and allows for some broken builds but I would have liked for it to be in later Elder Scrolls games, with more options and better balancing.
>>
>>2771626
>You're just pretending to play it!
Imagine being this pathetic and angry over people like something you don't.

>>2771821
>>2771825
What ecelebs are shilling Daggerfall then? This never seemed to be a game that youtubers and streamers latched onto even after Unity came out. Morrowind and the rest of TES still have way more popularity and influence in that regard.
>>
>>2772019
I still prefer Morrowind but Daggerfall undeniably has more complex character creation.
>>
>>2772207
If you put daggerall in youtube search I already see videos with millions of views in the first results. It's not about the game being in the collective zeitgeist -right now-, if it's endlessly shilled on twitch,youtube or whatever streaming service people consume -right now-. It's about the generation that has a conversation about this game specifically, right now, which has a high chance of being introduced to it by an e-celeb or through a series of secondary hand information and nothing about their experience or opinion is authentic, experiential or personal in any way whatsoever. Therefore the discussion follows the same fate. Dismissive, lackluster and proxy based conversations where people simply parrot what someone else has told them to say, think or feel. That is the main issue with having discussion openly about virtually anything on the internet today, you will be met with some kind of proxy type of behavior like this 9 times out 10. That is the generation we live in today, a generation that doesn't experience things naturally or personally anymore(take even this interaction, you're staring at a monitor instead of speaking to a humanbeing face to face) and no amount of denying reality will change the fact how tech companies dictate and mold human interaction in our age. You will parrot and regurgitate the same collective nonsense a million views video tells you about thing and you will be happy.
>>
>>2772022
>supposed to mimic heroic fiction
No. You have the wrong idea of what rpgs are supposed to do. Though it is true that the rpg modules in the 80's and early 90's were often designed around books that were released to help promote D&D like the Dragonlance books and the corresponding modules which were based on Tolkien, often modules were just fairly open adventures where an evil party could play through the module as well as a good party could given that the DM was decent enough that were premised on your party being a gang of adventures out to find their fortune. It didn't have to be heroic at all unless you were playing something like a Monk or Paladin who had an oath to donate all treasure that was not directly needed to fulfill their duties to charity in the "standard"/default rules. Often these modules were just structured sandboxes.

ComputerRPGs are essentially just derivations of tabletop wargames, except you play as a single character and the "rules" and general guidelines are souped up around playing a single character. The older crpgs, like Wizardry, Forgotten Realms unlimited, etc. often were just dungeon crawlers. The ambition of Daggerfall was to try to emulate that but on the scale of an entire region along with being able to open a bank account, buy a house, ship, horse, go to court, etc. Daggerfall as an rpg designed around the ambition of a medieval life simulator that had to be rushed to release and then required a few months of patches after released before it could be played and fell short of its ambition. However, It's quite in line with what rpgs are supposed to be.
>>
>>2772219
Daggerfall is free. You can download the original and patches or try unity. That's if you even want to play it at all. I recommend just downloading and playing a game that's free rather than looking for eceleb or video reviews, then if you like it continue. If you don't, simply uninstall it and the only thing you lost was maybe an hour of time. The choice is yours.

It had it's appeal, given what was available at the time. There were very few games offering that kind of immersion and scope, even if the scope part was smoke and mirrors. Flawed but ambitious, and enthralling at least for awhile.

Quite a few of us old fogeys are interested in the unity port + mods, because it opens the possibility of making Daggerfall into that which we'd hoped it would be originally.

Great game, but its immersion was of a more abstract nature (text events, detached perspective). Daggerfall was one of the early 'immersive sims', which is obviously what I'm talking about. Apples and Oranges.

A more apt would comparison would be that Ultima Underworld mogs it despite preceding it. Again though, the scope of Daggerfall as an imm-sim was novel (even it rang hollow after awhile).

Every TES game would have been improved by language skills, especially if accompanied by voiced ingame conlangs.

Having languages as skills is a cool idea, it just wasn't implemented well in Daggerfall like with many other things.
There are several mods that fix languages or use them to a better extent than Daggerfall originally did.

>Hopefully they do the same with the rest after a certain time.
Hahaha fat chance that Morrowind gets officially released for free. Todd in the back of his mind knows its his magnum opus but doesn't want it to compete with Skyrim.
>>
>>2778363
You still get the issue of why invest in several language skills when you could just use illusion charms/calm spells to achieve the same thing
>>
>>2778363
>Every TES game would have been improved by language skills
I disagree, having a random chance to pacify an enemy doesn't make an interesting skill.
Unless you actually think that Bethesda of all developers could manage to do different languages with dialogue changing depending on your and the other creature's skill level AND also make it interesting. In that case you're delusional.
>>

Todd wasn't in charge when they made Daggerfall. That's why Daggerfall is superior to the rest of the series. Morrowind-Skyrim was when they

>>
>>2778782
>n-no if you disagree you're a zoomer like me!
Do you have any real argument? Daggerfall was (and still is) shit. It may have a cool concept behind but the way it was executed resulted in spending a lot of money on a dry, featureless game idea.
Sure is cool that there are multiple knightly orders and temples, too bad that they're all the fucking same shit with the half-broken radiant quests system as the only "questline" available for factions.
Sounds intriguing to hear about the massive scale of the game with countless dungeons, too bad that you're never seeing any of that empty space while traveling and the dungeon random generation is completely broken and requires reloading a previous save in multiple instances.
Oh but the main quest dungeons are hand crafted, maybe that's why Daggerfall is the superior game... Except for the fact that all the titles you called out for being "blandest, emptiest and boring" have actual handcrafted content all over the place, and not just 3 times in the entire game.

Now, Daggerfall Unity is a different game entirely, but that's not the same game that came out in the 90s.
