I've lost all faith in the video game industry, I have one more game to play before I give them up completely. They've all become mindless and cliche'd hack and slash, or shooters. Terrible MMO's with so much security that even the people buying them can barely play them.
Take for example the latest Ghost Recon, which is literally unplayable and a straight console port. I had to fiddle with this title for several days before getting it to work. It's impossible to get a refund... who can't get a refund when they don't like products? Gamers. Who gets horrible support? Gamers. Who doesn't even get a chance to try the games before they buy them? Gamers.
Apparently we're all idiots and should just spend our money. Because as soon as we load up any game it tells us how to play them. Usually it's a linear path with almost full instructions all the way through each area. Gag me with pepper spray! I've never been more bored with games than this generation.
Today we have marketting hyping up these awful games, spending millions on paying off websites and television networks to advertise their garbage that is now on it's 5th or 6th release of the same thing every year. Call of duty 10 and Assassins Creed 10, and Madden 100, it just never ends with them dumping out the same garbage every year. Is there no originality anymore?
Apparently not. Every game winds up being the same engine and same shooter you've played 100 times over. They've even reduced themselves to remaking 8 bit games, and calling themselves "Indie" developers. Who cares? With all of our technology, we have 10 year old consoles being the number one machine to make games for, and the rest of us buying high end computers are getting console ports.
Well, I'm not putting up with this anymore. Pretending like piracy and security is ruining games when all they make is garbage is just ridiculous. Without piracy, we can't even tell if we want the game anymore. All we have is paid off websites telling us it's good, and hyped up trailers showing us flashy scenes. You can't sell us a good game, so you have to trick us into buying it now.
The last game I will play is Guild Wars 2. I may play it for awhile, but I will never buy another game. I will never buy another console, and I will never build another gaming PC. There just isn't anything worth my time, it's a huge rip off. Just like I cancelled my expensive cellphone, because it's 100$ a month just so I can have the luxury of over communicating. Well I can do that on facebook. Thanks.
I encourage gamers to stop buying games, demand the best... they have nothing they can offer us right now. It's a dead industry to me. It's as bad as the movie industry, dumping out sequels and rip-offs. Stop paying for this crap, it only makes them put out more garbage. The only reason they are still putting out crap... is because people are willing to pay for it. So please, stop being idiots and quit paying for these worthless rehashes, and ripoffs, and garbage.
