I think there are mods which exist which make the physics etc a lot more FPS like. I read an article about the BEST EVER NV MODS a while back, I'll try to fish it out.
 
I remember also there was a dehydration mod that made the penalties much more severe, and the drinking requirements more realistic.

How much saving in an old game with no saves constitutes save scumming? Any? One per stage?

Like saving before every encounter/after all enemies in a room are dead/sometimes every few seconds if I'm feeling really terrified and twitchy.

Yeah when I tried to play some of the Plutonium.wad, I decided (this was after completing Ultimate, 2, and then TNT of course) that I was done with classic Doom for a good long while.
 
Also, I beat Doom 3 a long while back and even though it was meh I still sort of want to play its expansion which I never did, maybe I'll buy the BFG edition of Doom 3 and play it.

I actually really love Id games and games made with various Id Techs, even the mediocre modern ones.

I got Persona 4 Arena and I am digging it because it has way more story than I expected.  Like, quite a bit of story.  And the angle shifts slightly depending on which character you play as, but they're all connected because they're all experiencing the same events (more or less) in different ways.  Really cool stuff for a fighting game.
 
I just started it the other day and didn't play more than maybe 20min of it but I got Boku no Natsuyasumi 3 while I was in Japan and it is just a game where you play as a little boy in 70s Japan on your summer vacation.  You do stuff like ride down hills on a bit of cardboard and catch bugs and go swimming.  I haven't figured out what sort of structure it has yet (aside from it being divided up into days) but it'll be interesting to see how it pans out because it's definitely an unusual game.

Yeah Chie wanting to be a cop breaks my heart idk what cops are like in Japan but I don't trust it...
 
Kanji's story mode is fantastic like...I guess I'll spoiler tag it because it's really funny and if any of you are gonna play P4A you should see it for yourself but

it's just entirely fighting stages and like, visual novel style sections i guess? i will end up playing it, yes. beat em up mechanics at least sound less tedious than jrpg mechanics to continue on with whatever is going on in inaba. i was just wondering if it felt like some knock off bogus sequel when i heard chie was a cop or whatever. but persona 4 generally does a good job of getting its hooks in you then letting you down.

Chie says she wants to be a cop at the end of Persona 4 (spoilers????? idk it's not really that important of a plot point) but maybe not everyone sees that dialogue, maybe it's tied into the relationship stuff.  In P4A she's just going with that same thing like "hey I wanna be a cop" it's not like she IS a cop.  But yeah it's just a straight up fighting game with fairly simple mechanics and then all the story stuff around it, but there's a TON of story for a fighting game.

Yeah, I notice Persona stuff is among the only modern Japanese RPGs that tends to get near unanimous praise by those who played it. I normally don't have much interest in Japanese RPG's but Persona at least has my eye. So I'm actually jumping around your spoilers to avoid them in case I decide to play them. Normally I would not bother to do that for other JRPGs...

I really really don't like JRPG gameplay so I played Persona 4 on the easiest difficulty so it wouldn't get in the way.  Even then I had to play more Typical JRPG Dungeon than I really wanted to.  Persona 4 is really more a good game despite being a JRPG, not as one.  If you aren't into JRPGs then just play on the easiest setting and it'll be fine.  I haven't played Persona 3 yet so I can't speak for that but I'm planning to play it soon.

they're actually pretty badass. They're kinda like a mix between those london gate guards that don't move and fuckin rio de jineiro special forces. If I remember correct they aren't allowed to carry firearms normally and use these cool little bola things that they can throw and take your legs out from under you while you're running and each and every one of them have to specialize in a martial art as part of their training. It depends which one depending on job description. Not to confuse that with normal US or UK combat training, they've got to completely master the art and be proficient at it.

they're pretty decieving though because when my bud and I were walkin around yokohama gettin drunk we kept seeing them and they were wearin orange vests with flashy orange stick things so I thought they were road construction workers and was gonna joke with one luckily I didn't. they were awefully stiff for road construction workers.

Are you still over there? GO GET YOU SOME CULTURE.

I've been playing Black Ops 2's campaign... and I'm surprised how fucking grim it can get.
 
Also the story has actually moved me... which has not happened for in in the Call of Duty series since CoD4. Glad I'm stubborn enough to beat games even when they do annoying things like the strike missions. (which no, I did not do, probably contributing to the grimness of the story)
 
Don't get me wrong, there are a bunch of cliches and its still basically a dumb sci-fi action movie with first person shooting. But damn its a well done one.

yeah I watched my bro play the very end and it was gruesome as shit.

I'm playing skyrim post expansions and its pretty damn cool with all the glitches worked out, or most of them. I'm tryin to play every role different but I don't wanna hurt that big soft dragon.....its gonna make me feel like a dickhead.
