Honestly, I tend to have long breaks in between games now just because I can only play the same game so many times before I need a break.

I was hoping he'd go on about food a bit longer... It's rather fascinating, to me anyway.

I like to imagine it was only him, the camera and poor lighting in the room. Nurse comes to check up on him and he stops mid sentence, goes stark still just long enough to create an uncomfortable silence and unnatural lack of motion, before slowly turning his head and stating in his most polite tone if voice "Thank. God. For. Me"poor woman would either faint, turn tail and run, confusedly say "thank you?" Or most likely, "Fuck sake Jim, this is why you aren't allowed into a room with multiple occupants. You get weird when you're bored, where's your pog collection? - to which of course, after a moments silence a few fall out from underneath his hospital gown.I was normal once. I have been corrupted by the pog fucker, cornflake homunculus and other such shenanigans.

Yeah more then right, i have allot more fun with indie titles recently, then AAA games. Just because AAA are always the same and ... boring.

This is by far the best of Jim. Thank God for Jim Fucking Sterling Son! (Sadly we still don't have Perfect Pasta Sauces... and they keep pushing for homogenization across the industry.)

I'm reminded of the time I read this interview with Yoko Taro in Game Informer, and this is what he said about the Japanese game industry: "I think what's happening at the moment in the Western video game industry is there's very much this polarization into the big AAA titles and also the indies, and there's very little in the middle to fill that space. What's happening in Japan is you've got a lot of games that maybe aim for AAA but don't quite make it there, and they actually come into that gap. So when these then go to Europe and America, they're actually filling in that gap and they fit in really well in that niche market, and I think that's why we're seeing a lot of success with Japanese games at the moment."

God what an eye-opening truth
Milan B. (8 months ago)
seriously most games that interest me lately are not AAA games but indie games. there is more diversity there and the games are usually cheaper aswell. give me many niche games that i can buy and play and than move on to a different game that is not like the game i just fucking played. dont give me a game that wants to check all the boxes. its like going to a pizza place or a steakhouse that serves everything from asian food to hamburgers to wiener schnitzel. you just know the food is not going to be THAT good.

Simon (7 months ago)
He had an actual problem with his gallbladder and needed to have an operation done. While in the hospital he couldn't do a whole Jimquisition, so he had one of his old ones remade.

Of course they don't bother with mid-tier games. Those just make lots of money. A game should make ALL the money. Meanwhile at XCOM. Long War studios/Pavonis Interactive said they don't have time to make a full Long War 2, but they will make some mod packs in the spirit of the mod from first XCOM. Someone at Firaxis went "Fuck! We need that sales boost we had with first Long War because it will take time before we can come up with a DLC that is actually worth something." And they paid Pavonis to make that mod. So 3xWin situation? Players got Long War, XCOM got a sales boost and Pavonis got money. Many companies would have packed that LW2 in a DLC with a hefty pricetag, but they knew better. First LW made them money while being free, so we want this free mod on the second one too. It didn't hurt their image to pay for free content either.

There's no perfect game, only perfect games. I agree. That's why Undertale and Final Fantasy 6 complement each other so well.
markponicki (10 months ago)
7 days to die pissed me off when they added an end user license agreement to their game after it had been available for years without one. i do NOT agree to anyone's terms and conditions if they're trying to retroactively force them on me or take away something i already own if i don't agree. would any of you be ok with a tv company showing up at your door with an EULA for your tv that you bought a year or so ago and was gonna take your tv away if you didn't sign the agreement? because that's how it feels when i buy a game without an EULA and then it tries to force one on me later. i don't think that shit should be legal and i certainly don't intend to follow anything in someone's EULA that's been forced on me after i've owned something for a while. pick any game you want and ask yourself how you'd feel if you bought it and it didn't have an EULA you needed to sign to play it-and none was ever advertised on the distributor's site for the game-but suddenly you go to play it a year or so later-and you're being told to sign an EULA or you no longer can play your game. how would you feel? how would you react? are you legally bound by that EULA? can you get a refund if you don't agree with it and it's well past steam or anyone else's refund time limit or other limit? i want to know. please do a video on games companies adding EULA to games well after they've been released and available without them, jim.

Its worth noting that a "resigning CEO" is not an important even for EA. since the 90s this has been happening every 4 years like clockwork for EA, it seems to be thier internal cycle. This is why a new CEO makes promises we know it wont keep every 4 years for EA.
FeyScribe (11 months ago)
so... British people, in general pronounce "A" as "AH"... but not the first "A" in "pasta"?
Big Booty SmaII Girl (7 months ago)
My favorite Britishism is that they pronounce words that end with "eeh-ah" as "eer" Like idea becomes ideer.

Yes, you can drink saline. It's just salt-water :P (NaCl salt, as well, not even some exotic one.)
Rob Dillenger (11 months ago)
Saline is literally just water and salt. And it's not the seawater type of salt-water, it's like 0.8% salt, sort of like Gatorade but without any sugar. There's a joke here around the lines of "Jim's not salty", or; "I'm not being salty, I'm being saline". Can someone help me find it?

"There is no perfect video game"? There's no video game that appeals to *everyone*, but that's not necessarily the only metric to measure perfect by. Of course, Perfect does imply flawlessness but within this context it also implies universally appealing, you *could* argue that for it's time a game like Super Mario 64/Ocarina of Time where 'Perfect' because they were as close as they were going to get for the time and for the console, yet subjectively they weren't. A game like Inside is objectively perfect, I would say.

There were a couple things at E3 this year that make me think the video game industry, slowly and a few developers at a time testing the waters, might finally be understanding the message conveyed in Jim's video here. Thank God for Jim Sterling, hopefully he'll be fully recovered soon.

Not gonna lie, Jim Sterling reminds me of Gary Oldman's character from V for Vendeta. Cheers.
I have said it on a halo wideoI am gonna say it again. We are nearing the singularity wherein every wideogame is a pseudo openworld scifi third/first person squad based shooter rpg hybrid with crafting collectables and a story about the horrors of war.

CodedThreat (1 year ago)
I remember when this first was posted years ago and I think I might have even commented at the time on that video that this story also reminds me about a coffee analogy I heard (I think in a TED talk about Howard and the perfect pasta sauce) that is in the same vain. Basically if you ask people what they want from their coffee, they will say they want a Dark, Rich, Strong Roast. But really only 25% of people actually want that, according to Howard. Most people want a Milky, Weak cup of coffee. But you would never hear someone say that is what they want. This is because most people do not actually know what they want, or cannot express what they want because they think it might sound funny or people might think them weak for wanting a weaker cup of coffee. Even though Starbucks has shown us, people really just want a weak, super milky cup of coffee. This can also apply to Video games. People say they want one thing, yet CoD still sells more than any other game almost every year. Even though they have been going down in sales ever since Ghosts, it still sells very well. People say they are getting sick of FPS shoot-ie bang bangs and want games with Rich story and Strong narratives, yet these games sell far less. People will say things that they think makes them sound more refined and mature as a person, but really they want weak milky coffee. Until something new comes along that people did not even know that they wanted, weak coffee will keep selling.

For all our differences in opinion, you definitely come out on my good side rather than my bad most often. I respect you, and your opinions, the more time goes on, and the more you stand up for what you believe is right. I'm not talking gender politics either. Those episodes just leave a bad taste in my mouth, not because I'm some redpilled jackoff, but because there are other forums, besides the one you've built, better suited for some of those debates. regardless. I will never stop loving you Jim Sterling, you bastard. Get well soon, the world needs you now more than ever. Who else will make me laugh every Monday like clockwork? fucking Jerma985? He never uploads anything but stream highlights anymore, which admittedly, are still fantastic.

This remaster could really teach Activision a thing or two on how it's done. Also possibly Nintendo too.
The Nameless Scrubkiller (11 months ago)
I actually meant how Nintendo has remastered a game from 1992, put a season pass in it, along with day one DLC. Oh, and announced that shit two months before launch.
TvSonic Serbia (11 months ago)
Nintendo's(nintendo as a publisher) hit games include platformers, rpg's(action adventure, strategy and traditional japanese), racing games, shooters, party games. I mean I get that you probably meant how they neglect Star Fox, F-Zero and Metroid(well not anymore), but it's not like they exhchanged all of those different types of games for the same type of game, they made new different games in place of Metroid, F-Zero and Star Fox sequels

I loved this episode. Was this really a "pre-youtubey jimmy" sort of jimquisition? I loved these episodes from this jim-era. This and the episodes of Simcity. Golden age of Jimquisition 2012-2013. This is what got me hooked on the jimquisition and on the games he mentions.

Dear Jim, Yes, you CAN drink saline, but not as fast as you would drink water. Drink at slowly like you would sip tea, one bag over an hour or so. Drinking lactated Ringer's solution is like drinking diabetic urine. (Speaking of which, there is no PERFECT IV SOLUTION, only perfect SOLUTIONS)
mattig89ch (1 year ago)
Despite this being an old video, it does make sense nowadays. I've been feeling, for a long time, that games don't have heart anymore. They are just the same old same old. And for fucks sake, you hit the nail on the head, 4 years ago. *sigh* We want games that are different. Some will be bigger successes then others, certainly. But simply releasing the same old, same old, isn't going to get you better sales. Good job jim, get well soon, and keep up the great work.
329link (1 year ago)
it's like you said in an earlier episode: you can't make some profit, you can only make ALL of the profit. companies are so greedy that if they miss out on even a dollar just to keep their dignity, they consider it a failure.

Enemy Unknown wasn't Extra Chunky. People didn't know they wanted Extra Chunky. All of the XCOM fans were screaming at 2K to release a strategy XCOM game. They KNEW what they wanted, 2K just refused to acknowledge it for the longest time. And what do we have to show for it? An immensely popular game which spawned several small DLCs and a major expansion, plus a huge sequel that also got several small DLCs and has a large expansion incoming. On top of that, a very loyal fanbase that has even led to passion projects such as Long War which has gotten the associated studio made partners with Firaxis and 2K.

Yeah just accompanied a foreign coworker to a gallbladder removal. He came in yellow as fuck (he Vietnamese but not 'that' yellow). We all thought his liver was failing because he's a drinker but thank the good lord Jim FS it was only his GB. He's not a very healthy dude but he made a swift recovery. Hope all is going well in your recovery Jim.
God bless you, Jim! Hope you get well soon!

Viewtiful Z (11 months ago)
*A shit Devil May Cry clone. Seriously. All you do in modern Final Fantasy is mash your basic attack. You get no combos, the thing that makes Devil May Cry interesting, you just get a basic attack. It's almost like Square wants to make Devil May Cry, but they only want to release Final Fantasy games, and they know that shaking up the formula too much will piss people off
