games today used to be made by gamers that got together with an idea they all used to agree would make a good video game and were working from inspiration and a grass roots community and made small companies. Then wall street figured out that the video game industry was making more money than movies, and all of a sudden all these capitalist economists showed up and started making games based on target demographic numbers and this means they are now trying to mass produce art (which by nature is impossible). Then what do you do when your company is in trouble or having a rough time competing? just buy out the competitor!

and then phones came along and half the video game companies jumped ship and tried to go over there where they proceeded to make some of the crappiest products in history and rely on microtransactions etc which straight up is a conflict of interest to gaming itself and are catering to a new generation that wouldnt know their heads from their rumps if their lives depended on it (sry kids, but your generation is an abomination).

Overall there just isnt the demand for better games. Why would you bother when you can spend a quarter of the time and energy on something crap just as many people will buy because they dont know any better, and throw away in a week but have a few shiny movie sequences?

Its all about dollars and sense...

and notice that at the exact same time tarentino was doing this the movie communities rise of: 'i just like it even tho its trash' movement took over and gave way to 'if you dont like it you can leave.'

at this point everyone is just trying to justify why their little spot of crap is acceptable, but a polished turd is still a turd. I honestly feel sorry for this generation of gamers. You have to settle and play word and mind games with yourselves just to find parts to be okay with and the problem just gets worse...

realize this is an old post, but if your still looking galactic civ 2 had some intelligent aspects to its ai. Arma like previously said is pretty good, but make sure you mod it out. Infact if you want better ai in general your pretty much forced to go to the mod community as the industry has been using the same ai really since the inception. As far as moded games go dawn of war had some sick ai mods, i wanna say some of the total wars and old school Stalker i wanna say was pretty good. Also Mount and Blade Warband and X3 are capable of some crazy stuff.

Hoping it gets too expensive to do the latest graphics one day and they are forced to do smarter things with their games themselves, but that is not a place we are at and its easier to make games for nubs and people that like to buy a game and be done with it in 10 hours and go get another lol.

games in this day in age is made for the largest demographic: the lowest common denominator, and unless your part of this group and clapping at every travesty that comes out the industry simply doesn't want to hear from you.

Don't suppress your rage, let it out. Its only going to get worse if you sit idly by and say nothing as its done for over a decade. Its not a crime to have standards or want to see a layer depth and skill.

really does seem to get worse every time you come back.

They are supposed to be adding stuff, but instead they take away at every turn in favor of something artsy. Made in America alright.

well stalin did kill far more of his own generals then the enemy ever did, and when your suffering an attrition rate as high as they were id imagine you'd have to crack a few heads just to keep the machine going at all.

The russians were afterall famous for originating the tactic of only equipping the first line of troops with weapons and the rest take their weapons from the dead when they fall.

Heck i thought they represented the russians unfairly well.

so ive been complaining a long time about our inability to make comments and rate games on pre-release list that are actually being sold.

Finally pre-releasing a game will not allow you to get away with murder. Or at least its more difficult again. Thank you.

and i find it really ammusing in todays world how you can ask questions about this stuff before the game was ever released, and have some doubts and questions, but hordes of fanboi's litterally attack you verbally trying to protect their favorite ip.

Then the game comes out and what are people complaining about? the exact same things you were concerned about to begin with. Todays gaming community makes a herd of sheep look progressive.

the only thing ive wanted out of new total war games has been upgraded ai for a long time.

Sounds like i can wait till this is on sale for a fraction of the cost at least.
