    @Lulu_Lulu: and people still keep playing Destiny after all is said and done. It's a great shooter that is only beginning and will be built upon for 10 years. Sadly, too many gamers are impatient and ...

    @Lulu_Lulu: any discipline can apply to a game actually. It's called creativity. Games aren't static action titles anymore.

    @Lulu_Lulu: .....you have a weird answer. Of course there's credibility. In spite of your feelings, many of the highly acclaimed games have had credible teams working on them. Credibility on the inter...

    @Lulu_Lulu: exaggeration is a tool of the uninformed. It does nothing but ruin your credibility

    @Lulu_Lulu: ohhhh how wrong you still are about me and my taste. Unless you bother to look at my page like I asked you to once, then don't speak of what you show no understanding of. But seeing how we...

    I prefer if a game delivers on both gameplay and story

    @Lulu_Lulu: and you obviously don't want games to change. That's fine.

    @Lulu_Lulu: the difference is you're so opposed to anything that turns games into a storytelling medium. You somehow cannot accept that storytelling no longer has to be relegated to passive mediums li...

    I completely agree with this.

    @Lulu_Lulu: and why can't they be both? Does it matter if that's what I want from the medium? I want my games to enrich my life, not just entertain. If a game wants to be an interactive drama, who am ...

    @Lulu_Lulu: Aside from grinding, which is actually fun in this game, I don't see the tedium. But hey, whatever justifies your insanely biased arguments. Not saying mine are any less biased, but at le...

    @Lulu_Lulu: it's a great idea. Get people out of the hand-holding mindset that makes so many games tedious and boring.

    @Lulu_Lulu: you can plan ahead because the game already tells you how it plays. The enemies follow the same rules as the player.

    @Lulu_Lulu: not to me. I view the experience much differently than you.

    @Lulu_Lulu: You don't need a shield to plow through Dark Souls if you know what you're doing with the dodges. The beauty of the game is it allows for any play style, and having it feel challenging re...
