To this day, I'm baffled at people who complain about TF2 Pyro users using "W+M1".

You have a flamethrower. It shoots a constant stream of fire. You use it to ambush and set groups of enemies on fire. That's literally what the Pyro is meant to do. Everything else like airblasting, spy-checking, ect. is stuff that keeps him from being useless when he's not doing that.

I'm glad TF2 Classic got rid of a lot of the ways you can get rid of after burn along with all the superfluous stuff so Pyro doesn't have to rely on gimmicky set ups to be viable and actually do what he does best.

Yeah, he doesn't take as much time or skill to get good at like the Spy or Sniper, but with those two, they're meant to be high risk/high reward classes. So of course they're going to take more skill to get good as. Why is this even an issue?
a big part of why people complain about pyro is because valve is retarded and his flamethrower range literally varies depending on how good the internet is making it impossible to figure out what range to fight him in.

I can't get into Fallout New Vegas and don't get how it's such a perfect game/rpg. I've tried to get into it twice so far but I just can't.

"Oh I need help there's criminals, fight them! You rescued our sheriff but he can't be sheriff he did bad things, you have to ask the ncr whatever to allow him to be sheriff again"
"Ok but it cost more caps than you have right now"
"I saw the men you are looking for but I won't tell you unless you help me by going there"
"Hey can you kill the ghouls?"
"Hi I'm a smart ghoul and here's my weeaghoul friend. Can you do this for us"

It's like one big chain of quests where you get fucked and never get anything out of helping people. Every npc is a useless cunt that's just waiting for someone to do the deed for them.

Resident Evil series died off when they killed Wesker in a volcano. Whole game was about jumping the shark and they've never managed to come up with an interesting multi game story arc since then. In fact they gave up on that idea and have just been a bunch of lazy assholes who dont know what even made the games good to begin with.

Whole franchise needs to be fucking rebooted from the ground up and Capcom needs to pull their head out of their ass and try to remember why the franchise was so popular to begin with. Also, stop making every fucking game a variation of Resident Evil 4. They practically copy and pasted that games engine for a decade (RE5, RE6, Revelations, Revelations 2, RE: mercenaries for 3DS) and never really added anything special to it either.

Whole franchise no longer has any focus or over arching story arc and is just a series of filler games while they try to come up with something when stock prices take a hit.

I fucking hate Nintendo. Their low IQ, childish, baby brained, perpetually 8 years old fan boys are the single biggest group of insufferable twats on planet earth. Worse than Apple fanbois. Nintendo havent had an original idea since the SNES and every first party Nintendo game since the N64 has been shit. If I were supreme leader I'd put anyone guilty of Nintendo ownership into a work camp.

1. Dude's a deputy, and the reason why he won't take up being sheriff is because he's a coward.
2. The people who ask for help all have obligations and/or completely outmatched by the enemies you face. The ghouls got ran out of the Repconn basement by a bunch of Nightkin super mutants for example.
3. You never actually have to help these people. You can either ignore them, or, if you have certain perks, you can talk your way to finding Benny and the others. If you have Confirmed Bachelor for example, you can skip the whole Repconn ghoul sidequest by flirting with the daytime sniper at Novac.

After playing Monster Hunter World, it's kind of making it hard to go back to the 3DS iterations. World spoiled me so much and the graphics are so enjoyable. I grew up on the handheld Monster Hunter games so feeling this way makes me feel like a heathen. But man, World is so good.

Wasn't Resident Evil 7 essentially a soft reboot?

If you think RE4 is (one of) the best game ever made and played it an unmeasurable amount of times and you still hate Ashley, maybe you just suck at the game. I remember my first two playthroughs were hell but I eventually got better at it. If you play a game this much and don't improve, it's your fault. Unless you just can't do escort missions at all, that's fine, we can't be good at every genres. People are like "her voice is like nails on a chalkboard she's the most annoying character ever, second only to Navi". She's really not annoying at all and she only scream for help when she needs it, and the character is meant to always be behind you. Yeah maybe you just suck. The game is even kind enough to give you a container she can hide in and make her go away during bosses and the more intense parts of the games.

Also Navi isn't annoying. Her voice isn't bad and she only speak when she want to explain me something or tell me to watch out. The water temple is also overrated. It's just a bit confusing and pretty slow when you want to sink. Ruto on the other hand was annoying as fuck. She literally refuse to walk and want to be carried, all while throwing a tantrum in your arms, and asking you to promise you'll marry her. And she get vored on purpose. What the fuck. No one hates her?

Another annoying character, well characterS, is those pesky people in GTA Online calling you every time you log in and they call you over and over while you play. They just want you to buy the bloody expensive dlc. Roman in IV was somewhat annoying with his damn bowling and american dream but at least he didn't try to convince me to grind millions of in-game dollars or open my irl wallet to help him.

Want another character that's worse than Navi and Ashley? Otis in Dead Rising. This fucking nigger will call you anytime he wants and it will make you unable to attack and jump. I got bitten by a zombie more times than I can count and couldn't defend myself, got grappled, it quit the walkie talkie conversation. Then I lose a few HP and kill the zombie. He calls me back "HEY YOU ARE VERY DISRESPECTFUL TO SHUT ME DOWN WHILE I'M TALKING TO YOU YOU ARE VERY RUDE". Oh I'm sorry for being rude, I was merely being eaten alive.

I'll keep that in mind and make a big charisma character if there's a third try to get into it. I still don't get why people revere the game like it's infinitely better than Fallout 3 and 4, although I haven't played 4.

Charisma is mostly a dump stat, but Speech is a very useful skill. Endurance, Int, and Luck are the stats I focus on the most, especially because End determines how many stat-boosting implants you can take.

I don't blame Nintendo and game companies for the base price of games in my country, it's the overpriced stuff. Who decides why one remastered PS3 game is 30 and the other is 70?? Also fucking gba games for 80. They remade it but other remakes like SotC, Crash and Spyro are remakes too without selling it for the max price. It just feels to me like some companies are fair and some others are trying to cash in on nostalgia. Also it's Nintendo so the price drops are unlikely for a long time.

If it's available as a physical release they probably don't want to price them differently and upset Gamestop or other retailes and because Nintendo is back on cartridges the physical releases cost far more to manufacture than a disc.

Every single fucking metroidvania likes putting the "COME BACK LATER TO GET UPGRADE" thing but they make it a fucking slog to get back. Especially the ones that take place fully underwater. Having to fuck with the water levels just to exit and re-enter everytime is just tedious.

1. I think he was talking about Meyers and not Beagle. It makes sense that Meyers a convict currently serving a sentence in a NCR prison would like a pardon to go be sheriff of a town the NCR is currently garrisoning so the NCR won't just throw him back in prison.

2. Thats kind of par for the course for an RPG. The plebs are always looking for a hero to save them.

3. Or you could check his computer journal or steal the log he keeps on his person or you could just follow the road out of town and find the next bread crumb or make the logical conclusion that all roads lead to Vegas. There are normally ways to skip the favors people ask of you or get leverage on them to do what you want. I also like the various skill checks that happen in NV over 3 where you can do things like surgery with a medicine skill.

While I do love the game, I also don't get how it's "so much better" than 3 & 4, why can't Fallout fans just get along?

And don't bother with Charisma. Unlike its usefulness in 4, it barely does anything worthwhile in NV, just keep it at 1.

I can't speak for anyone else, but I do think New Vegas is the best modern Fallout game for a few reasons.

Some reasons as to why it's better than 3:
1. It plays better than 3, to the point where I could only get through 3 by using Tale of Two Wastelands.
2. The world is much better designed. Seriously, what was Bethesda thinking with the compartmentalized DC ruins? They're a confusing slog to get anywhere in.
3. The DLC is in NV is far superior, I love Big MT, the Sierra Madre and the Divide, while Zion National Park... exists. (Seriously, Honest Hearts is the worst NV DLC by merit of being really damn boring.)

Fallout 3's DLC aren't particularly interesting, Anchorage = Call of Schüt-y but worse, The Pitt was a blatant extended fetch quest where I ended up siding with the "villain" because it didn't get me to care about the slaves, Point Lookout had some interesting ideas, but just seemed kind of bland locale wise (swamps in videogames suck), Mothership Zeta was one long alien sneak/shoot mission with next to zero story. Broken Steel was cool just because of Liberty Prime and being able to continue exploring with a couple new sidequests, but that's all it was.

Why it's better than 4:
1. While 4 has objectively better gunplay, for some reason New Vegas just feels better to play in a way I can't explain. (This is entirely subjective.)
2. 4's story is genuinely terrible. "Son gone. This settlement needs your help! Find son. This settlement needs your help! No, ignore everything that's way more interesting, son needs save. STOP HAVING FUN, FIND SON. This settlement needs your help!" Compare that to, "Yo, you just got shot in the head, head to Vegas to find who done did it. Oh, and then you get to take over Vegas, if you want." It helps that New Vegas also had factions I was actually interested in learning about.
3. 4's DLCs (A whole 2 new areas!) were alright but underwhelming. I actually like Nuka-World, if only because I love post-apocalyptic theme parks, but Far Harbor didn't hold my interest long. (Again, I don't like swamps. Or fog.)

New Vegas also had the best perks/skill system and the weapon/armor degradation worked pretty well in a way that I never found obnoxious.

These are just some of the points I can think of on the spot, and some Fallout fans might disagree on some of them, but maybe it'll give you some insight into why at least this fan prefers New Vegas.

I can sum up New Vegas’ superiority with one name.
