My dad brought home a Commodore 64. I was hooked :)

[QUOTE="Mogzsnet"]A lot of people complain about the price of video games, but personally I don't have a problem shelling out money for a quality game. Take Skyrim for example; Bethesda Game Studios spent 5 YEARS building Skyrim from the ground up. Skyrim is meticulously detailed, well voice acted, and clearly a labour of love. Irrational Games delayed Bioshock: Infinite twice because they didn't feel it was ready. Ken Levine the Creative Director for BIoshock said "when we ask people to pony up a lot of money for this game, we have to feel confident that were giving them something that they deserve". That's exactly why Irrational Games got my $60. I'll gladly pay $60 to a Developer for a quality game that is a polished product. In short, make a good game and people will buy it.capaho
I agree that truly great games that take years to develop are worth the price. The problem is that there are too many mediocre to bad games that are released at the same price that are not worth the money in terms of story development, gameplay or playing time and that diminishes the value of all games from the consumer's perspective.I couldn't agree more
At the end of the day I don't take issue with anyone having preferences or a lack there of. As a PC gamer I constantly hear people sputtering nonsense about PC gaming dying, yet frankly I could care less. As long as I'm happy playing the games I like, on the platform I like, then do I really have any right to judge a person on what they enjoy? Some things just don't appeal to people. Take me for instance, I have zero interest in racing games. I'm aware they exist, I know people love them, I see the great ratings they get, however I still will not play them. Does that mean I'm closed minded? Perhaps. Does that mean I know what I like? Absolutely.
I have played multiple games this kid wants to play and they've all been shitty games, literally every time. I always mention something actually good and he just dismisses it, because he only wants to play what he wants to play. Today I mentioned a co-op survival horror game called "cry of fear" free on steam right now. His response is this.
I get so absorbed in RPGs that I tend to not spend a lot of time trying new stuff.
(5:59:46 PM) Captain N Kevin: And I'll admit I'm quick to dismiss a game if I see a floating gun and crosshairs.
(6:00:03 PM) Captain N Kevin: I'm pretty bad at them, tbh.
(6:00:21 PM) Captain N Kevin: I'd still like to get that Walking Dead one though. Kind of a letdown that it wasn't multi co-op.
So trying new things makes no sense in his opinion. Dismisses games with a floating gun and a crosshair... need I say more here. That walking dead game was **** awful and everyone said it was on here as well. I just don't get idiots like this. Does anyone else run into these morons on the reg. It really makes me rethink friendship when someone just wants to live in their own world of shit and never open their eyes.
