The games were made for replay value.
The length is perfect for replay value.

They may have been intended to have replay value, but I never felt the need to replay it. Maybe you can still enjoy it again and again, but I found the survivors and psychopaths to be too tedious and repetitive. Other than playing through the story again, I would have no desire to play it(which they were "meh" to me so I'm not too interested in playing them again).

Can you tell me some things to do in 1-2 that don't get boring/annoying? Not trying to be an asshole. I'm actually curious to your opinion.

That's not really very helpful. You kinda boxed me in a corner. I've already picked 3 tedious things in the games. That is also all there really is to do as well so my guess is you can't think of anything that isn't tedious either. Boil the game down a teeny bit and there really isn't a whole lot to do aside from the main story. Without much to do, I don't have incentive to replay. That's how I rate games of replay value.

Probably one of the complaints I heard most about Dr is the shitty AI. That's why saving survivors gets annoying. It's because they are so helpless.

You may find joy in replaying it again and again, but I don't. All I asked was for you to give examples of things that weren't tedious.

Everyone has their opinions on games and I respect most of those(except those that praise fable 3) unless they pretend the game is flawless.

There isn't. Aside from the main mission, all there is to do is save useless and annoying survivors and fight psychopaths. Both of which are very tedious and aren't usually very rewarding(aside from Adam in 1, the rest aren't really worth the hassle). There isn't even a new game plus so there is no real reason to start a new file.

Rather than act like I'm wrong, why not give examples of replayability?

>famous for replayability

I've never heard anyone ever praising it's replay value, so you're full of shit.

I forgot about new game plus. Forgive me for forgetting a feature. That still doesn't give me much desire to play it all over again. Having boosted stats takes some of the grind off, but there still isn't much in the game that's endlessly fun.

Again, rather than acting smug, find actual things that make the game replayable.

All I see is:
-a story that I don't feel engaged in enough to play again.
And
-the option to play it again.

Are there any other things to do that aren't obnoxiously repetitive? I'm actually curious if you can manage to list fun things to do in 1-2 that don't get old real fast.

What else is there to do?

Save survivors?
They are helpless idiots who need you to hold their hand to walk down an empty hall. Some even need you to do menial tasks in order to save their life. There isn't much joy to be had in saving them as they rarely ever do anything to help you.

Kill psychopaths?
I never found joy in fighting them. Just hit and run for most fights. Few of them have a different styled fight. Sure you can occasionally get a reward, but only a few are actually practical or useful. I skip most of them because they just aren't fun.

Kill zombies?
It's fun to clear zombies out, but even that gets old.

Is there something you want to add or are you going to not offer an actual counter then just act smug?

It's not much to ask for actual points. If you're going to defend something, at least try to back it up rather than ignore claims.
#1490266 - desacabose (09/20/2016) [-]
Don't you meme me boy
#1490281 - wertologist (09/20/2016) [-]
So random sentences from random people are enough to say the entire game is praised all over for it?

Also the camera is a side mechanic. How many people decide to play the whole game again because they wanted to take pictures again. That's like saying the camera in San Andreas adds to replay value. Replay value means it has something that makes you want to play the game again for. I've never heard someone say they wanted to play all of dr again solely because of taking pictures.

And again you get smug and ignore whole points. Can you actually contribute to the discussion? I'll ask again because you didn't see it before apparently. Can you list things to do in the game that are fun and are not tedious/repetitive?

If you can't answer that question then I'm going to assume you can't think of anything.

#1490295 - wertologist (09/20/2016) [-]
You're trying to cite game reviewers as an actual defense? I wonder if any of these 90% are the ones who get paid for positive reviews or just jump on the rating train so they don't look bad. I bet ign is on that list too right? Because they're always right, right? Like what they said about far cry 3 being Skyrim with guns? I guess they're right just because they said so.

And again, can you actually contribute something? All I'm asking for is something that isn't tedious or annoying.

Though you'll just continue to say "stahp memeing bro" and not offer any actual points.

I played it a couple of months ago and they do a pretty good job with their side quests. Typically, the traditional grindy MMO sidequests are all located around the main quest, so you can complete the "Kill 20 rebel scum" quest while advancing the story at the same time.

If that's your experience with SW:TOR, you played it wrong. Ever since it first came out, doing the main quest and the planet quests would leave you well over the needed level. If you went and killed enemies hoping to get OP, that's on you.

It's changed a lot. The only time I've had to actually grind was for PvP, and that's it.
As far as the main story goes, you can beat a class story in about 1 week. Levels are pretty irrelevant now since they increased the effectiveness of companions.
If you put their role as healer, you will never drop below 80% health. If you have them do tank, an enemy will never agro on you, and if you do DPS the enemy is dead before you can draw your weapon.

It's become more so a massive co-op RPG now. Which I'm fine with, tbh. I hate fetch quests and I despise enemy grinding so TOR has always been my go-to MMO.

I'#d suggest giving SWTOR another go. They've overhauled the XP system so now to keep up with planet levels, you just have to do your class quests and the story arc for the planet which is about 6/7 quests total. Also killing enemies aren't your main source of XP, quest turn ins are.

I just don't have any desire to try it again. I had little fun the first time. How recent was this xp change?

I know quests give you the most X, but you can't always do quests. There are only a finite amount of quests. I don't remember, but isn't there a level requirement for most quests? I started two files. 1 Jedi and 1 Sith. In both, I spent most of my time killing enemies because there were hardly any available quests to complete.
