So a new video was on gamespot recently pointing out that the video games can reduce your depression. In my opinion it is wrong. Of course for a casual gamer who only plays Mario and Sonic video games are fun and joyful but not for a hardcore gamer who has seen some serious tragedies that happen in video games. I recently played "Conker's bad fur day" which I say is a must play game even now. It is of N64 so at first you may think it is just like mario or banjo etc. But the deal is different. the funny squirl keeps throwing jokes (sometimes dirty ones) but in the end everything turns different which is a very depressing ending (That I don't want to spoil) and that is only one example. I have seen this before basically because I
1 apocalyptic worlds especially fallout 3
2 Conker's bad fur day ending (despite the whole game itself)
3 Batman arkham city's ending where Batman is carrying joker in a state that resembles the first painting in the game that is about "Cain and Abel"
4 Spec ops the line
5 Cold war crisis: where you revisit the resistance
6 Metal gear solid games
7 And the one that made me cry even in bed is this: Castlevania lords of shadow ending. It is pretty depressing if you think of the journey Gabriel had and is going to have
... and so on.
Reasons new Castlevania game looks awesome
Well I ask you how did you feel while playing dragon age or skyrim and other fantasy games. I myself would enjoy the plot and the setting for the first moments of my experience. new creatures and new fantasy. New worlds to explore and unusual plots. But after playing such games for some time you get tired of it sometimes you may say So What? What do I care about the origins of hags What do I care about the story of dwarfs. It is because they are unreal beings of tales and the creators themselves add some new info to them. This makes such fantasies boring. Also fantasies with high references may seem heavy to accept. Like Dantes inferno and Darksiders with biblical references. They are stories you have heard before.
Now lets take a look at Castlevanias plot. It is a mix of fantasy and reference. You both see fact and fiction. It is not like skyrim that there are many gods. The world of castlevania has a supreme being. Its main antagonist is satan not a flying dragon but it is also telling us the story of Dracula. It makes connection between reality and fiction. When I think of the plot and its different aspects I say Well there is satan and there is God so there could be a fight going on and satan could be planning on making a Dracula and Dracula could be on no side. And this awes me. Many Japanese games and animes you see with a high level of fantasy and absolutely no reference. But this one is a Change what you want thing about story. The original Dracula book would be too lame to be a video game and a new fantasy with little reference would bore you just like skyrim did. But to steal the idea of a book and Change in a better one is just so right. Dracula is like what you always wanted him to be. I mean the original story of Dracula involves a vampire in a castle. So what? But this stoy is way better. In castlevania Dracula is not only a vampire. He also is a rival of satan. His enemies are both light and shadow. And it is like he is going to make a change in this world. I would not like to see what satan is up to but I sure like to hear the story of this dominating Dracula.
The other thing that awes me is that this game is based on old games that you would Imagine its world. Graphics of old castlevania games were not that appealing but the atmosphere was awesome. Whenever you would play castlevania you would wish that it was more real. And now it is your wish. With these awesome graphics you can experience a way better atmosphere. I mean there are many old games that I liked to see them huge and castlevania is one of them.
With Deus ex released 2 years ago and the newly released Assassins creed 3 that both are about conspiracy theories I decided to post this blog to say my expectations of a good game about conspiracy.
1 New theory with a new start
It should have a new point of view and a new start. We are seek and tired of the "New World Order" thing and those cyborgs of deus ex.
2 One theory is all I ask
I dont want a game that puts everything together
3 It should have eastern references
4 It should have less historical references that happen to be false
5 Your fight should be meaningful and with every step you take you get closer to victory
6 bosses should be hard to hunt down each with a unique personality that when you get to them you feel a relief. Boss fights should be tough and epic.
