Welcome to the Hardcore Husky Forums. Folks who are well-known in Cyberland and not that dumb.
So I spent 150$ on Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
new controller (kids spilled bullshit on the other ones)
Have complete like 20+ puzzles. yawn.
3 year old goes and fires a fire arrow into some goblins who are alerted and promptly go kill us.
What is the point of this game?
What am I missing here?
Hope this helps.
Pong. Then Super Pong. Had the first Nintendo system in the mid 80s. Kept up on it through about 2008’ish or whenever the Wii came out.
Haven’t played for a few years but still have a system at the lake. Looking forward to busting it out when all the adult kids gather and kick their asses in Monkey Ball and Mario Cart and any other cartridge Mrs Throbber v2.0 hasn’t thrown in the garbage yet.
The night before Christmas, I set up the tombstones and preinstalled Half Life Alyx (comes with that game) so we'd have a head start in the morning. He opens the (giant) box and freaks out, and it's time to play around with it. Everyone has a go, then it's my turn. HOLY SHIT! This was not the gimmicky, lame graphics experience I expected at all! My pussy ass son is too scared to play Half Life, preferring the gimmicky games, but I ended up staying up late for the rest of my vacation to beat Half Life. I've since played it all the way through again, and it was just as fun. It's easily the most immersive and exciting video game experience, and nothing else comes close. It's an actual game-changer. The only problem is that there's still nothing else like it for VR.
Long story short, I can still enjoy video games as an adult, but it takes a special game that's worth my time. They definitely exist! If you have access to a high-end VR rig and a PC that can handle it, do yourself a favor and try Half Life Alyx. Might change your mind about video games.
Edit: Who am I kidding; anybody here with a VR rig and PC would had straight to PornHub...
