    And my hypocrisy shines through with number 7 for Babylon's Fall, cause I can only imagine good things coming from another Square Enix/ Platinum collaboration.

    Don't feel bad about it. The whole point of this thing is what is currently your strongest desires, so it makes sense a game we don't know too much about yet hasn't boiled to the peak of its hype yet.

    People are not gonna like mine I suspect.

    Seems fine to me.

    Kingdom Hearts 3 (not a huge KH fan and it is still this high)

    Same, the feel is surreal.

    Ghost of Tsushima (looks pretty good but something is off with the animations. looks.. clunky somehow)

    Maybe they're going for exaggerated movement in bursts like many classic Samurai films? Maybe I'm just making excuses for it?

    this looks even more open world which is a minus. I want more focus on story, not less.

    I think it is less open world than people originally assumed. Seems segmented into NPC hubs and the missions you get sent on. Hubs being NPC only means there's probably going to be plenty story, but if you want to main big conflict of the story to ever be resolved, then you're going to be disappointed with what the devs have already said about that ruining the gameplay. You can probably expect smaller story questlines though.

    Dragon Quest XI (sorry haven't played any DQ and the trailers look pretty bad. I don't understand the hype

    I feel you. I don't really get it either, because the game is already out in Japan and did worse than DQ normally does there, which is a really bad sign imo when that's coming from the true experts of the franchise. Maybe people just want a really traditional fantasy adventure right now since not many seem to want to provide that anymore, but even then I honestly think you're better off with Octopath Traveler. Although, I also recognize that DQXI will inevitably be way more lighthearted than Octopath, so maybe it is a legacy and vibes thing?

    Pokemon Let's Go Eevee/Pikachu (I've never played any Pokemon games and this seems worse

    When you start thinking about games aimed for different audiences, I don't know if it is necessarily "worse" than the rest of the mainline, but it is definitely aimed at an audience I don't find myself identifying with. Just hope if the main series really does split into two parts, this casual branch soaks up all the casual considerations that have been plaguing the main series during the last two Pokemon generations, so those games can get back to what I love about Pokemon. Sun / Moon were downright depressing to me.

    The 1st batch are games I at the moment plan to buy and play, and even contains GOTY candidates

    1. Dragon Quest XI
      I love Dragon Quest, it's one of my favorite IPs of all time, and it's high time the main series comes back to singleplayer and home console. GOTY candidate for 2018
    2. Resident Evil 2 Remake
      I've been waiting for this since REmake, while it's not hw I wanted it at 1st it just looks so good, the E3 gameplay made me very excited and I hope Nemesis will get the same treatment. GOTY candidate for 2019.
    3. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
      Just loved how it looks and I'm happy FromSoftware is not making a soulslike game for once.
    4. Babylon's Fall
      PlatinumGames X Square Enix, a combination that brought us Nier: Automata, I'm very excited to see what this game is, of course the gameplay reveal could lower the score. Not impossible to become a GOTY candidate for the year of its release

    +1

    I haven't successfully gotten in DQ myself yet, but I heartily concur with the rest of this quoted portion. My GOTY 2019 is very likely going to be one of the remaining 3.

    As the Allies like to say during their podcasts "It's never wrong to dream!", and that's exactly how I'm feeling about Babylon's Fall right now.



  • We’ve come to Update 3.5 and for version 3, it appears the fluctuation died down. There is NOT a single spot move, but there was a lot of closing in behind the scenes.

    While they didn’t switch positions, Kingdom Hearts III pulled up to tie with Resident Evil 2 Remake (Or RE2: R fell, dependent on your philosophical views on life…).

    The Last of Us Part II maintains a 0.2 lead over what’s underneath it, but instead of space between the next few entries, directly behind is the second tie of this update. Between Sekiro and Control, Sekiro takes placement for having a highest desire. While this did NOT move the placement among these three, the differences between closed nice and tight.

    Smash and DMC 5 grew close together, shortening the difference to 0.3.

    The difference between Dragon Quest XI and Babylon’s Fall is almost two whole points, reiterating the divide between the top dozen and the rest of the list.

    Fallout 76 is maintaining a half point lead over Halo: Infinite.

    The Elder Scrolls VI closed the gap on Skull & Bones all the way to just 0.2.

    Before ending I have a question to ask: In light of having to make sure I double check entries, the scrolling is starting to annoy (but not by much). However, it made me realize the scrolling you would have to do would probably be just as, if not more so, annoying. So I wanted to put it to all of you: Would you rather -

    A.) Keep the thread like it is and update your original post.
    B.) Create a new post with your most recent Desire Index when the next batch of games come

    I’m fine with either option, just wanted to gauge your thoughts. In any event, I hope everyone is having a nice weekend!

    I think this is a good time to point out for anyone who doesn't know already that you can disable infinite scrolling of posts, and have threads appear "paginated". Click your profile picture in the upper right, and go to settings. Scroll down and near the bottom left look for the setting "Paginate topics and posts instead of using infinite scroll".

    When I update my desire index, I just remember "It's on page 2", which makes it very quick for me to find.

    On the flip side, the last time I did the whole "posting to say I've updated my desire index" thing, I included a link to my desire index post. The syntax looks like this:

    [I updated my desire index you guys!](/post/72517)
    

    I did this firstly to ease @Brannox 's burdens in maintaining this awesome thread idea (and perhaps I should have gone further and done

    [I updated my desire index you guys!](/post/72517), paging Mr. @Brannox
    

    so it would appear in his notifications!), and secondly because I decided not to quote my entire desire index this time, just my top 5. I assume most people aren't that interested in my mids and bottoms if they are presented without commentary.

    Quoting all 22 entries also felt like I was adding "noise" to the thread, because I'm forcing other people to skip past it to read the conversations.

    I'm in favor of option A, by the way: Edit original posts, preferably using a backlink to make Brannox's life easier, and leave it up to individuals to quote all or part of their updated list as they deem appropriate so that people don't have to create excess noise if they don't want to.

    Edit: Also, with both option A and B I'm not 100% sure if adding an " @Brannox " to people's index updates would be more helpful than harmful, since it might actually produce an unmanageable flood of notifications. I was the one who brought up this idea, so I think it's important to also explicitly state that I will defer to the person who is actually going to be impacted by it.

    plus no Venom.

    Did they confirm that? I was under the assumption it could still happen. Btw, nice post formatting. Very clear.

    @Brannox said:

    I wish we had done B from the beginning to preserve a log of everyone's weekly desire changes, but we're so deep in now we might as well stick to A. I've been replying to my original post every time I update it lately, which means you can click the button on top of my "I updated" post next to the post time to jump to the original. Everyone could do that to make them easier to find?

    The Allies are right. I hate change when it involves trivial things.

    I think B is the better option if only because we're already making a post anyway to say we updated the original post, and either copy/pasting your older list or just doing it from scratch isn't that hard (the latter might even benefit in re-weighing the list with new additions or if you just have a change of heart between weeks.)

    @musou-tensei I can't imagine Venom would totally no-show. Maybe he'd just be a secret boss or something if he's got no relation to the whole Sinister Six thing.

    Could also end up DLC with the way games are these days.

  • This post is deleted!


  • Updated my post! (Post number 30 as far as i can see on my phone)



  • Before gathering together the most recent lists, I wanted to take a post to respond separately:

    @Chocobop I didn't know about the pagination! I've been using infinite scroll since the forums started, so thank you VERY much for pointing this out to me!

    Thank you for saying the thread is an awesome idea, but I MUST say the credit should belong to Axel, Sentinel Beach, and Inustar as they were the ones who intially kicked around the idea in the EZA Desire Index thread over in Shows. All I did was decide to create it.

    Also, I really like hyperlinking the original post, as it does help me considerably. What I've done in the past is on Wednesdays when there are 8-12 lists and I have to do a clean version, I type down the names of all who've said they've updated, then scroll to find their OG post. It's not too bad and is only a once a week type of deal.

    And by the by, no need to put a "Mr." in front of my tag. I'm not called "Mr." in any way so seeing is weird. But now that I've said that, watch as everyone does it. X-D

    I really don't mind the notifications, because they all (for the MOST part) occur in a single thread when I receive multiple ones, so just clicking on the thread instantly gets rid of them. This very post, for example, I logged in to see I had three notifications, and the moment I clicked the thread, poof, all gone! So it's not a big deal.

    @Mbun The only reason why I was initially opposed to that option at the start was because to use Chocobop's wording, I was concerned about "noise." I thought by constantly doing that over and over, it would be list after list after list from multiple people, and I wasn't sure if I could track it properly. Again, that was something I considered only from my point of view, seeing as how I was going to curate the Master Index. My hope was for everyone to have one list post, posts saying, "Hey, I've updated," and posts with discussions. Which for the most part has been exactly what happened. I only purposed the above because of the scrolling everyone would have to do. While I'm not necessarily opposed to do doing it, I can't speak for others, but Chocobop graciously pointed out could be changed, so it's not as big a deal as it was when I asked my question.

    Overall it seems split, so unless there's more feedback, we'll just keep doing things like we've been doing. Thanks again to all of you! Now time to take in the newest lists into account.



  • Update 3.6 has movement! Red Dead Redemption 2 and Ghost of Tsushima swap places with RDR 2 holding a 0.2 lead. JUST behind them is Resident Evil 2 Remake by 0.1.

    The Last of Us Part II tumbles two spots, with it trailing Control by 0.1, which is trailing Sekiro by 0.2.

    Smash also drops two places. It’s in a tie with Dragon Quest XI, but DQ has more highest desires. DMC 5 only edges that tie out by 0.4.

    The Elder Scrolls VI has now tied with Skull & Bones, but Skull & Bones still wins out with having a sixth highest desire.

    Judging by how these updates are going, I’m pretty sure I can now say the final five games have their spots locked in, with the exception of the potential of a game brought by the Allies we don’t like. I don’t know what that could be at the moment, but everything from Gears 5 down is pretty much at the place they’ll be.

    There's a funny story behind the "Mr." actually. I originally wanted to write

    I updated my desire index you guys! Paging Mr. @Brannox, report to medical bay 6.

    in my "example text" because the example text was already jokey and this extra bit would be a jokey reference to Perfect Dark.

    If anyone cares, here's a paragraph explaining the reference:
    Specifically it is a reference to the level Area 51 Rescue where every few minutes the player will hear the PA system activate and play one of four voice clips such as "Captain Santiago, report to medical bay 6". The game does this to create the ambience of the level being a military-medical facility. However it's a long level and the 4 voice clips aren't enough to avoid noticeable repetition. Obviously, these unseen people like Captain Santiago never reach where they are supposed to go, and PA system will just incessantly make the same polite request over and over no matter how much time you spend in the level, so the ambience falls apart if you think about it too hard. This line in particular has at times been a meme to PD fans, as in "Will Captain Santiago PLEASE report to medical bay 6!?". It's been immortalized in a few walkthroughs and old gamefaqs posts like this one.

    Anyway, I deleted the obscure Perfect Dark reference and just left the "Mr.", hoping it would still come across as jokey in the context of "pagers" alone.
