This thread is clearly filled with fine, upstanding folk who know exactly what they're talking about! I like them!

Man, I've been running into a lot of old threads lately that, when combined with a raft of more recent posts, have made me feel less and less respectful and more and more frustrated at some folks who, though I tend to disagree with them, I at least found intelligent and rational. :/

I... I don't like not liking people or thinking, "That's stupid, you should feel stupid." when reading their posts. :(

This does not, by any means, apply to everyone I tend to disagree with. There have just been, like, five old threads I've read lately with rather vehement discussion where one side holds such an obviously-incoherent argument that it's just... just... ugh. And it's not even that they hold that view! That's fine! It's how arrogant and condescending they are about it! And then they have the nerve to tell peo- ARG! I'm ranting! :(

what always helps me is the realization and acceptance of the fact that this is the internet. I love paizo. I love the messageboards. I would enter carnal relations with the FAWTL thread if I could. However, this is the internet, where people lose their s**# and get into vitriolic arguments where threats of death ensue over the most minor of disagreements, fall over laughing until stomach cramps ensue because a cat did something slightly cute, and third parties call the police to an acquaintances house in another state due to a spectacularly bad case of broken telephone in a live chat session. ** spoiler omitted ** long story short, Keep interactions low-key. Conserve anger for when it's really important. And never, ever let a troll get to you.

Fair enough, sir. Fair e-nough. :D

Eh, less interested, unless it's playable with a console-style controller anyway, like the Steam ports of FF games.
You take that back! Glorious PC Master Race über alles!

nope.avi

I play plenty of PC games myself, but RPGs are a platform that requires console controller command/input format. I've tried playing emulated SNES/Gameboy/GBA/DS games via computer keyboard and it is a PAIN.

Uh... My experience is exactly opposite: controllers are crap, mouse plus keyboard is so much better...

For RPGs? Specifically turn-based JRPGs such as Final Fantasy and the like or tactical games like FFT or Fire Emblem? How exactly is keyboard more efficient?

Using three middle fingers instead of thumb is much more comfortable, handy, quicker, and less tiring for me. Also, keyboard does not need to be held unlike controllers.

And don't get me started on modern analog controllers that replaced microswitch-based directional buttons... Argh. That is more of a complaint on games in real time, though, like beat-em ups, not RPGs.

Dragon Age, especially two (haven't played Inquisition yet). I was speaking more generally than only jRPG.

I personally find holding the controller a plus, as I move around a lot when I play games like that.

Well that would be the disconnect. I certainly can't see playing NWN or WoW or those sort of games with a controller.

Mass Effect.

This is a likely candidate. I found that you can get all three games together for a pretty good price. I could binge my way through starting with the first one.

~sharpens my knives~ Oh, you could play Skyrim.

I played Skyrim all the way through 3 times during 2014. Otherwise, your answer would be the obvious choice :)

Also, Freehold, when are you shoveling my driveway? That was the deal, wasn't it?

I would shovel, but the impending rain will take care of that for me.

No wonder FHDM is so angry.... Discovering that one has worse eyesight than mine must be a terrible experience! :P
