In the defense of Metro, it's good if you are trying to farm points on limited time. Plus, it's very satisfying if you can break out of your spawn and take it to the enemy, trapping them in their spawn. 

I like Metro. It's not the best map, but it concentrates the action in a way that death doesn't impede a player's ability to have fun.

I bought it. I would hazard to say that it's worth at least $5, no matter how bad it is.

I remember seeing copies of this game at the local computer shop, but I never picked a copy up.

We're just carrying "limited missile strikes". No boots on the ground... yet.

I always wish I can change my account login name... I made it years ago when I was younger and didn't know that it was permanent!

Pre-ordered on Green Man Gaming. Can't wait! I even bought a new CPU for this thing.

If I did get a console, it would be more for streaming content like movies and music, but with the recent arrival of the Chromecast, I'm not even sure if I need a console for something like that anymore.

I find BF3 superior to BC2 in many ways - except where Rush mode is concerned. Rush in BF3 feels haphazard, mostly because the maps place the MCOMs in places where the action doesn't flow as well. The Rush mode maps in BC2 were more linear, so at least the action was concentrated around certain vital chokepoints... But in BF3, the action was everywhere, and it's often hard to position yourself well enough so that you could take out the MCOM or defend it.

[QUOTE="drekula2"]

it's only 2 hours long, no replay value.  what if they made the house like horror or something, added monsters in the hallways and give your characters like an axe or a pistol or something.  like 8 hours of combat, a few hours of cutscenes, and like an hour or two of reading notes and stuff like that.  make like 12 hours instead of 2, you know.  also, an online multiplayer portion would be awesome.  think like luigi's mansion 2, exploring the haunted house with 3 other players.

Gone Home is like a demoreel of a what a possible game could be like. But your absolutly right, the "game" takes about 1min to complete and has no replay value or anything worth mentioning. So 20$ is a insane ripoff and steam should be ashamed that they allowed another scam like Dear Esther to fill the "steam shelf"..

I think that that's an unfair categorization to declare a game a "scam" just because it doesn't fit within the normal bounds of categorization for games. Furthermore, "Gone Home", in my opinion, is just an adventure game without the puzzles, so it does fit within a traditional genre.

The stipulation that PC gamers belong to some mythical master race, lording over console and handheld peasants, must stop. 

The "master race" designation for PC gamers may have been valid in the 1990s and the earlier part of the 2000s, but is no longer the case. PC gaming has grown increasingly accessible (thanks to Steam, Facebook games, et al) and the vast majority of PC gamers are not hardcore people armed with huge gaming rigs spiked with multiple graphics cards.

In fact, they are probably people like my sister, who plays indie games like Faster than Light on her crappy laptop with Intel integrated graphics. They are also not as technically savvy - in fact, my sister would never know how to take apart her laptop and service it if need be. 

PC gaming has become so widespread and attracts such a huge following of people from all walks of life and perspectives that it is no longer the domain for computer enthusiasts only. 

PC gamers are no longer part of some mythical master race - the things that once made PC gamers special is no more. We are only bound together by the medium with which we choose to game on - the personal computer.
