Gothic died, long live Risen
3 was a mess, this one is a total letdown :( ...what a shame. I expected so much from this release, I looked forward to it as the one that fixes the mistake that was the third one.
Ohh... at least we have Risen; I liked it and I think it was what Gothic 3 should have been. Looking forward to Risen 2.
R.I.P. Gothic... you will be remembered for 1 & 2.
Seeing some of the new games and how some people review them, I feel so sad about the future of gaming. Developers and publishers are closer and closer to their goal: create a generation of 'gamers' that ingest dumbed down and simplified games, which are easy to develop. I understand this, they want easy money, but they completely forget about the FUN... and I still think/hope a day will come when this kind of approach will turn against such pubs/devs and people will ask themselves 'hey, where is the FUN playing this game? I won't buy this kind of crap anymore!'
P.S.: I don't have the time to write a full review now, but please read taxonomic's review: http://www.gamespot.com/pc/rpg/gothic4/player_review.html?id=741374
Thank you taxonomic for your time. Great review!
