What year was the absolute worst for video games?

18/11/27(Tue)23:31 No. 145469 ID: 4c9282

1983. Atari crashed and almost took video games as a whole with it. People were calling it a fad. If companies in Japan weren't willing to take the risk on developing new systems after that we wouldn't have video games as we do today.

This is wrong

The "Gaming industry didn't crash", the "Console industry" crashed in the USA

There was no "Great videogame crash" in 1983. USA =/= The world

Japan also didn't "Save anything" as well.

I feel like sometime in the early 90's the companies gave up making good games because brands were selling more (thanks Nintendo) which is why we had shit like Crash still trying to be shoehorned as a mascot all the way in fucking 97

19/02/18(Mon)23:27 No. 145540 ID: d6ab75

it was inevitable that people would continue to develop games because hobbies dont need a means to justify being done. the only thing a crash would effect is a business, and videogames as a hobby would not have died even if quartermunching arcade games didn't take off again

The European market was absolutely laughable in terms of units sales back then. And the games? Goddamn why the fuck were so many of them were horrible pieces of shit?

Companies went tits up faster in the European market because to sell games in Germany you had to translate your title to German. To sell games in Italy you had to translate your title to Italian. Each and every translation amounted to a completely new version of the title as space didn't exist to have multiple languages inside a single package due to limited storage and space of systems at that time. The limited number of sales for each of those unique titles yielded a high rate of failures to make back development costs - too many failures, bye bye developer.

For chrissakes it wasn't until the 90s that computer games in the UK were sold in a packaging that was more elaborate than one or two audio cassettes put in a ziplock baggy lined up on counters, and even then most of the time they just changed from audio cassettes to 3.5" or 5.25" floppy disks.

Europe was never a vibrant market until they gained sufficient memory, storage, and power to have multiple languages in a single title and that happened a fuckload later than 1983.

Whichever year Halo came out and castrated the FPS genre for years to come.

The first person shooter genera has always been ass.

19/08/04(Sun)04:02 No. 145736 ID: c80dcf

While true, there were some interesting elements being introduced to first person games before its release. Even the early development builds of Halo included a lot of features that were intended to be fleshed out in the final product.

Then Microsoft acquired them and shoved Halo out the door with only the bare minimum of features to meet their arbitrary release date.

You can see evidence of the acquisition fucking up Bungie products best in Oni. The first few levels are really fun and interesting. After that though they became cookie cutter and boring, because that's when Bungie was no longer in control and it was being shoved out the door by Take2.

I would say 2016 or 2015. At least nowadays, weeaboo games have dual audio. Back then they didn't even bother to have it usually.

Cry moar, button-mash fanboy.

None of your doom and gloom stopped, for one thing, the existance of a "golden age of Spanish software". Germany with Austria and Switzerland, and even with Best Germany excluded, was a big market in and of itself.

The North American computer ecosystem was also a thing, no matter how terrorized you are by floppy discs.

Not to mention you ignoring the post right above yours that makes clear the irrelevance of your gripes.

20/10/31(Sat)17:37 No. 146208 ID: efe79b

Yeah, such a vibrant market they sold games in ziplock bags.

The margins were so thin they couldn't afford to use decent packaging.

You ignoring the 7 posts above yours makes clear that you're eurotrash.

20/11/07(Sat)05:05 No. 146213 ID: 715b23

Lost Odyssey. Forza 2, and DMC3 came out that year. It wasn't a bad year despite the global recession happening then.

MGSV, GTA V, and Witcher 3 came out then.

2020 is the worst. I can't name any good games from this year.

I think it's unfair to judge shit made less than ~5 years ago. It's too early to tell what mattered and what didn't.

In my opinion, 2020-22 is the most disastrous year for the video game industry. I think that in the near future developers will be able to release new games that will shake the world. But it will be when everyone stops churning out games according to the ubisoft formula. With https://ilogos.biz/full-cycle-game-development/ I want to make my game without parodies of the existing one.

I recommend to play overwatch becasue its cool game for play with friends and have opportunity to create own play team. Their goal is to protect squishier heroes such as healers and close-range damage dealers by creating distance, soaking up damage, and eliminating targets who pose a threat.

Cyberpunk lost its' edge. Still trying to please fans. But, I enjoy it sometimes. Patch it up for about five more years, it might turn better.

Ill say 2010 or 2008, I think these are funny because 2009 and 2011+ are seen as some of the best years for gaming with bombshells like far cry 3 and the new cods but 2010 and 2008 were times when people didn't respect gaming,companies didn't put work into them with very little passion, and most of all the games all tried to copy each other with no originality
