Deus EXImagine believing there's an actual government conspiracy to control every facet of your pathetic life, no one cares

I remember playing what was probably among the first lazy pixel indieshit platformers on some flash game website. It was 5 minutes long and nothing happens except some "deep" text appears across the screen occasionally as you move to the right.

>>523660421This manga legit made me cry. It its way too close to home.

>>523660421>sekiro.Dead serious. Not bait at all.

let this piece of shit manga be a WARNING of what will happen if you let bad shit slide, when you've had enough say STOP and start working towards a brighter mirai

>>523660421Any Nier game or Undercuck.>>523660757Nobody fucking cares retard.

>>523660421Punpun deserved to fucking die, and I hate that he got off scott free.

>>523660421This guy really knows how to write depressing ass love stories.

GRIS maybe, can't think of anything else

>>523660630You aren't actually supposed to take Deus Ex seriously. It just unfortunately attracted an audience of complete and utter retards that do. That doesn't make the game pretentious.

>>523660421Punpun is pretty straightforward. If you think it's trying to be 2deep4u you might just be genuinely retarded in real life.

>>523660421Maybe not the most but the outer worlds struck a cord with me. One of the few games I returned, I still beat it but it wasn't something I wanted to look at in my collection. The whole "Capitalism bad, everything bad" Thing and the pseudo moralistic choices of capitalism BAAAADI was often sympathising with with the corrupt corporation because to most of these people, they were happy being wage slaves. There was no real middle ground it was Communistic dystopia or capitalist dystopia.At least in the capitalist one, you could work your way up. Either way, trash game full of dykes. You couldn't even fuck the robot.

>>523663536>>523663731Both the book and the manga adaptations are good. I know litfags like to meme it up as if books are always superior, but different mediums have different strengths. Shocking, I know! Also, Furuya's version is a modern-day adaptation which gives it a different flavour.

>>523663856Do you know what pretentious means?

>>523663519Nice job outing yourself as a retard. You're literally valuing the opinion of the basedboy audience that worships undertale instead of forming your own opinion by playing them or learning about the games.

>>523660421Celeste. No, not because there was a flag in it for two seconds, but because its story is a heap of garbage. Generic "conquering mental illness" indie game story that says nothing and pretends it's deep. Game's fun though.

>>523664683The game is largely reading with an audiovisual experience in the background, why wouldn't it hold up? It's good.

>>523666203but you also bumped it

>>523665469to underline that the main characters arent important, and that the world needs to be literally saved by other unrelated people. despite this, Punpun's suffering is very important to him and the reader.

every single character in punpun is a piece of shitif you can relate to punpun in any way whatsoever, you should reconsider your life

>>523660630Crash BandicootImagine believing there's an actual mutated spinning fox that fights a crazy scientist

Braid when someone explained the ending to me.I mean the concept and game was cool. In fact the reason I'd say its pretentious is the convoluted stuff you need to do to get the "true" ending. I also think Nukes bad is really tired.

>>523662608>Death StrandingYep, that's a winner. Others may have interesting story line, gameplay or likable characters or at least be pretentious over some interesting idea.

Journey. Or maybe Dear Esther


>>523667794I'm not saying you should ONLY read the book, I'm saying you shouldn't forego the book in favor of the manga, which is also worth checking out

>>523667734Death Stranding is actually fun though. Anybody playing it for the story is a brainlet. The gameplay and atmosphere are the main draw. Of course, the gameplay isn't to everyone's taste, but being niche doesn't equate to being pretentious.
