I am sure that I remember reading plenty of times when this thing was still in early development that it would retails at around $199. Even just a year or so ago they were projecting the MRSP to be between $199-$299. What the hell happened? Oh yes, Facebook.

I really don't get this phenomenon! I got a hold of a copy of the game and it just didn't captivate me. I consider myself as the type of gamer who isn't too rigid with standards and expectations, but I sincerely don't get why this game is held in such high regard. The control mechanics just don't seem right (is it hard because of this?), it just doesn't feel polished, but again I think that's all about the controls. I'm not trying to be burned at the stake here, just genuinely wish someone could tell me what I'm missing here.

I'd much rather have a random encounter with Danny...

@ianpac Maybe your heterosexual status (assuming here) has clouded your judgment in comparing this game to the Walking Dead? Ridiculous! Your list of the game's shortcomings clearly identify your standards (and I agree with 2 points you made, btw) but this game is not meant to incorporate action or anything of the sort, and it's not meant to be scary. Remember "Dear Esther"? It's something like that - action of the mind, not for the eyes. But let me just wrap it up by saying that bringing up Carolyn's "status" was highly unnecessary.

As long as Blacklist won't have that gimmicky element of turning shaded areas into black-and-white visuals then I'm cool with more or less anything. I didn't at all agree with that in Conviction, and now that I think back I really didn't enjoy how dumbed down it was, I mean, all time low from what I can recall... Yeah I hope Ubisoft Toronto actually sifted through all the feedback about the stuff Splinter Cell fans didn't like about the pseudo-Splinter Cell (Double Agent & Conviction) games and made a real effort to go back to the roots of what put SC on the radar. Stealth and mature, intelligent ways to take care of business.

Not quite sure if I'm sold on Geralt's new Hollywood hero face, but the idea of an open world is nearly orgasmic. I hope they manage to put enough content in there so that it doesn't just end up being a lot of horseback riding...and I hope they don't do it cheaply as what was done in Skyrim (this band leader needs slaying in that hideout).

@Chushingura When I got hired into my first management position, I was grateful, and truly so - I didn't care that I had to work in an office that was originally a staff kitchen (with pipes still sticking out the wall) or that I got paid crap - I was passionate about what I did and where I was and I got satisfaction out of it. Fast forward some time and I got a different job with better pay and higher profile company, but it was just a job - and you couldn't have made me work an extra hour without paying me, and I did only what I had to, not a gram more! Passion is everything. **** the companies that don't get this...

Well, I got my hands on the game (friend gave me his copy) and I must say I actually told myself up until about 20 minutes into the game that this isn't really all that horrible (has most current patch), but I have to say that even if this game had stellar reviews, I would have still gotten utterly bored in no time. It's like hitting a brick wall, you just realize that there's not much more the game will offer...and no real reason to keep playing either. So, my ultimate take on this is that it's not a horrible game now that it's somewhat patched, it's more like mid-budget B-list game, but without any doubt, I've played worse. It might be OK for those with a wider attention span, regardless, as it stands now, I'd give it a 5/10. At least I don't agree with most comments that the graphics are dated, they are probably on the lower end of "current graphics", but no longer seem outright dated to me.

Why (mostly) all the hate for Doom 3? I remember playing it when it came out in 2004, and I enjoyed it. Yeah, yeah, it wasn't heavy on the story side, but there was nothing inherently wrong with the game either. Maybe with today's mindset, we see that it was a bit shallow, but back in 2004, it was a fun ride. I have zero interested replaying it though, the original or the BFG edition, but still, it's a classic as far as I care.

Of all the games I've played over the years, this is one of those titles that I actually remember enjoying! Funny because right when I bought it, I didn't even bother finishing the tutorial part, but then quite some time later I gave it another go and I got hooked. It's a game that's easily misunderstood - but once you get on board with it, it's a ride you won't regret taking!
