After going back and reviewing some of my reviews, I noticed a lot of ppl dis-agreed with what I had to say. Granted I'm a big fan of brutally honest truth. I come from the first generation of gamers, pong, atari, intellivision, com64, apple II, nintendo, sega, and so on.
Frankly I don't think the games cut it anymore, graphics are 1,000,000,000 times better yes, but gameplay and fun is down 1,000,000,000,000 percent, where is the creativity, where is the long weekend spent just gaming and not completing a game, now I can complete a game in less than a day, more like 6 hours. The only bright spot in the gaming industry is the semi-sandbox games that are coming out, ala, oblivion, fallout, stalker ect.... These games can provide well over 100 hours of gametimes vs, say God of war 3, which took me like 4 hours.
Gamers deserve better for their dollars, it's not all about graphics, it should be about gameplay, hours played, and fu-king FUN!!!! I have stopped buying games at full price and usually wait for them to get in the under 10.00$ range, and until these gigantic crappy companies stop making crap for 60$, I urge you too stop purchasing these games until they hit bottom dollar.
Remember when gamers made games for gamers, now it's huge crappy companies making games for retards.
I understand with today's technology games are harder to make right, but they are also faster to make and with today's engines, sometimes a lot easier to make then imputing 1,000's of lines of code just to move Link (from zelda) from one side of the map to the other. But is this an excuse to release broken games, fuk no it's not, this is unacceptable. In the name of the almighty dollar the gaming industry has been sold out to keep the masses entertained for 1 day at a time. And for a huge price I might add too, up to $60.00 a game. Our fun has been diminished so some dip-sh-t can fly is private jet to the Bahama's for the weekend.
When will ppl wake up and realize it's not acceptable to produce crap and pawn it off as the new gold standard????
