People hate video games because it slave away from personal responsibilities as an adult and child. I did a post about why people miss work and school to play video games. Readers you can check that out and tell me what you think of it. Not everyone plays video games for a living or lifetime. Most gamers play them as a hobby and favorite pastime. Others found ways to make money playing and developing video games. Mostly, males play video games in the earlier years. Times has change in video game culture. Females play video games nowadays but in the past. It was look down and don’t want to be like a male. Any age group can play video games and there is not limit.
Enjoy them while there are hot in the market. As far life goes people are aware of being a kid and adult. Stages of your life, you will get an education and get married. Relationships does play a role in video games. Depending on you and your partner interest in gaming. Then its chemistry and you have found someone who has the same interest. For those who chose the wrong destiny, one of your partner hates gaming. Don’t end up with that person and stay far away. Speaking of person responsibilities, make sure to focus on them. Get a education and go to college. You might get into Game Design in a prestige school. Don’t play video games all day if you have children and a day job to feed them.
Eroge video games is visual novel about sexual intercourse and act. Visual novel have subgenres and hidden content in their games. Before we talk about adult games and eroge. I will not post links nor 18+ pictures in this post. Hopefully keep it clean in this website and make readers turn heads. That being said, in the anime and manga community. We know about ecchi because it’s non-adult content. Sometimes ecchi goes beyond than it portray to be. There is another term called Hentai which is the same as Eroge. Hentai means pervert in Japan and adult content. It is very popular in Japan and grounded in the US. Video game developers make titles that suits gamer’s fantasies. You are a main character surrounded by beautiful girls with different bra sizes.
That’s call a Harem game, although it’s overplayed in anime. There are couple of games that have adult content. 1990s Sogna with their Viper series, School Days and Variable Geo. Those games have adult content and not suited for children. Honey Select Unlimited is a VR eroge game that allows player to create a partner. There are different eroge genres and styles of the games. It doesn’t always revolve around Visual Novels. You guys will have to google and see what’s up. Did I mention that some video game hosting sites like Steam, Nutaku and others have them? There is a new article about Steam talking off uncensored games.
What is the problem with video game live action movie adaptations?
Video game live action movie adaptations becoming stalagmite throughout the years. In the early 80s movies have been booming with action-packed, drama and love story. When it time to make a video game adaptation. Developers get little time to prepare it. They want to release it before or after the film. Normally, these adaptions get mediocre reviews and little recognition. Directors and producers cut some parts of the source materials. Want to create their own iteration of the film. The first movie adaptation is Super Mario Bros film (a very bad one). Super Mario Bros is based on the same name of the Nintendo game. In the movie, there is no Mushroom Kingdom but an unknown underground city. This film is notoriously bad and consider the worst video game adaptation ever.
Mortal Kombat film was average and faithful to the source material. The acting was subpar and the characters were portray well. Mortal Kombat: Annihilation was awful with their CGI animailty and abysmal fight scenes. Street Fighter (1994 film) was another cult following movie. Where Raul Julia’s character M.Bison says (of course!). I think the movie is better than Mortal Kombat and Super Mario. Ryu is not the main protagonist but Colonel Guile (Jean-Claude Van Damme). Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li was the hero in this movie. I have watched Street Fighter but no The Legend of Chun-Li. In my opinion Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist web series is the best out of both. The web series explore Ryu and Ken past with their master Gouken. Later on Street Fighter: Resurrection is based on Street Fighter V and both series is on Machinima.
Video games have come along way in decades. Having no internet telling you how to be a video game. Looking at strategy guide for hints and tips for video games. Going into a friend’s house or play with a sibling. What about no online gaming but local multiplayer. There were no 720 and 1080 HD games back in early 80s. Esports were small back in 70s but not mainstream in the present. Live streaming gaming have not a thing in late 70s. You have to watch your friends play a video game. Gamers will have to wait for your turn to play. People will do that until this day. Remember going into a video arcade and putting in quarters to play. During the 80s arcade games come to consoles.
Video games consoles when playing arcade games, players have limited lives. During arcades, you have to put in quarters to continue. During the 80s, when buying a video game console, you have to buy games and accessories. Some accessories are brought separately when buying game like Battle Clash on SNES. Duck Hunt requires players to buy NES Zapper for the game. Games like Mario Paint were you need a Super NES Mouse. Super Nintendo Entertainment System also allow user to play Game Boy games with an accessory. In Atari days, the first game people play is pong. Afterwards video games transition to Pac-Man then Super Mario Bros. First, there is joystick to control and play the game. Fast forward in the present, it’s gamepad and controllers.
Bioware is a video game company that brought you Mass Effect, Anthem and Dragon Age. They have work with EA for years. Although Bioware has a string of controversy during development and throughout the industry. Kotaku put out an article about their recent run in with Anthem. How Anthem was bad and didn’t live up to gamers. There are some people enjoy the game went watching on Twitch. Things are happen internal within Bioware. There are reports of employees quitting Bioware due to mental health, Due to large amount of crunch time, staff work their behind off. Employees had to take “stress-leave” because of poor management. Crunch time occurs went developers get no rest and have to stay overnight. Red Dead Redemption 2 did that and game got great reviews. Anthem uses Frostbite engine along with Star Wars Battlefront 2.
There is controversy about Star Wars Battlefront 2 loot boxes and characters. Back on topic, Frostbite engine is a rival to Unreal engine. In the article, I guess it didn’t do well. Anthem was developed for years and there was some obstacles. The game is about people who wear exosuit to fight monster. It got some elements like Destiny with customization. Although, Anthem have flaws such as crashing on PS4. Gamerader calling the game “unfinished” and others called it “frustrating repetitive”. Don’t forget the long loading time. Anthem was not the only game facing troubles. Remember Mass Effect 3 ending scandal. People was not happy with the game’s ending. Bioware release Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut with new endings and no additional charges. Fast forward, Mass Effect Andromeda didn’t hit home with fans.
