  • I had exactly the same experience. I played Ghosts of Tsushima after Elden Ring and Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, I was surprised how shallow the mainstream open world games are. I don’t hate them, but the gameplay really boils down to:

    • Walk slowly while characters talk to eachother for 5 minutes

    • Open the map, click on where you need to go, then walk in a straight line to your objective

    • Trail an enemy without being seen

    • Liberate an enemy camp (kill the same 3 enemies and collect the 5000 twinkly useless items in the area)

    The Elden Ring withdrawal is really hitting me. Most AAA games are trying so hard to be cinematic and movie-like that it’s boring me to tears.

    AI was a promise more than anything. When ChatGPT came out, all the AI companies and startups promised exponential improvements that will chaaangeee the woooooorrlllddd

    Two years later it’s becoming insanely clear they hit a wall and there isn’t going to be much change unless someone makes a miraculous discovery. All of that money was dumped in to just make bigger models that are 0.1% better than the last one. I’m honestly surprised the bubble hasn’t popped yet, it’s obvious we’re going nowhere with this.

    Emulation is almost never 100% accurate, that’s why seemingly perfect emulators like Dolphin still get updates. They mimic the original hardware as closely as possible but there are still bound to be some bugs and games that don’t work perfectly. The best emulators are more like 99.9% accurate.

    N64 emulators aren’t that good, so you’ll get occasional graphics errors and crashes.

    Like the Mario 64 recompilation, this isn’t running on an emulator, but is totally native. That means it runs smoother, has zero issues that you might get from emulation (like inaccuracies), and makes it so much easier to mod and extend it. You can see some of the features on the page like autosaving and playing on high framerates.
