Asscreed Odyssey is an absolutely gorgeous game, and the world is incredible but it just feels totally empty and soulless. I dunno what I expected from this but it's been a while since I played an Ubisoft game.

disagree, 1 is fully sick except for some slightly questionable 80s drug war stuff and the Prostitute Rescue Meme. it takes place in a fantasy world where cops are actually accountable though and not following the literal included rulebook results in you immediately dying or getting fired. 2's bad though, 3's pretty good and you barely do any police brutality at all in that one but it is also a very DARE game. 4 is bad but not for the reasons people say

swat 1 is the epitome of awful FMV games. swat 3 and 4 are proto RS siege and are good rear end shooters if you divorce them from their subject matter, and swat 2 has the terrorist campaign, as mentioned

and thats my retrospective of the entire sierra police quest franchise

thinking about it further, if you wanted to call quest for glory 2 less than good i'd be okay with that. if for no other reason than how much of that game you spend navigating a maze

Spicy take incoming

Despite the gameplay, GTA as a series glorifies the police and is part of the pro cop propaganda problem that inundates American media

in police quest you get run over if you don't type 'look both ways' first before crossing the street, which sounds like it owns, but following the rules is actually Uncool imo

the only good sierra game is the dagger of amon ra

Lucasarts was great but it was years after the Sierra games. I played all of the space quests until 5, police quest 1, dagger of amon ra, quest for glory 3/4, and I loved Sierra games because there was nothing else like them. Lucasarts came later and improved on it.

Edit: looks like hot girl 69 was wrong about the Nintendo news this weekend?

they were running simultaneously for a while, it's just that the SCI/AGI games predate Lucasarts

that's because Adventure Game Studio by default used SCI fonts, UI and graphics. adding other interfaces such as SCUMM or verb coin required additional programming/plugins

i don't know if they use generic graphics now but originally roger wilco was the default player character/animations

but there's also sort of a 'default' inertia that happens with AGS games that's not too dissimilar with RPG Maker games. even though there's a lot of plugins for RPG Maker that add other types of battle systems, a lot of games still use the default DQ-style system. it's the same with Dreams, where a lot of high-effort projects still use the default walking/running animations where the character looks like he's always on the verge of falling over

thats right, and so the lasting cultural impact of sierra games will live on forever while every so often some lucasarts guy might make a mediocre throw back

with any creation software, if it requires going outside the software to incorporate it, you gotta actually go out and get it and install it.. when the default stuff in the software is right there...

which is why indie platformers in the late 90s were all garbage, because they used the default The Games Factory platforming engine and screen-scrolling

i mean I would probably do the same thing in their shoes, but I also have no interest in programming whatsoever, i am completely alienated by it
