    Indeed, the Sims is pretty offensive to anyone with even a vaguely socialist bent, so if one doesn't get past that, it's going to be pretty awful. I don't think Sims 3 is actually as shallow as...

    You are being rude to be so dismissive and high-handed about this, actually.

    The problem with LoG isn't that it "gets a wee bit difficult", the problem, as several people have mentioned, is that...

    The Sims, particularly 2/3 is somewhat akin to DF, and notably has a mostly-female audience, and gigantic sales (far higher than most AAA games could dream of), and sells full-price expansions at a...

    Have you considered that you just don't know many gamers, period? I don't mean that in a mean way, but that seems a tiny number.

    Because virtually every friend I have plays games at least...

    Your experience is not "how it is".

    What you're saying there, it seems is "unless it's the same as my experience, it's not realistic". That's obviously nonsense. I mean, the big question for me...
  6. I don't think most people in a vegetative state...

    I don't think most people in a vegetative state in front of the latest AAA title are "gamers", either, though. They're just people who sometimes buy games.



    You could literally say precisely...

    This is correct. The only thing you can't do is review the long-term endgame of the MMO, and whether it will be fun after two months or six, or a year. One month is almost as meaningless for that as...

    It's strange that it apparently works this way for Destiny, but didn't for other MMOs, including WoW.

    They were. A small number of MMOs have released to good day one reviews. Confident MMOs don't make attempts to silence this kind of thing, and just roll with it, knowing that the more detailed...

    The removal of open cities I can buy as a technical necessity.

    What's really outright skeevy is the removal of create-a-style, which was the main way to actually make a sim or house look good...

    Excluding Reach and ODST? What is even the point. They're superior, in both gameplay and setting to pretty much all the other Halo games. I'd certainly buy HD versions of them on PC, but 1-4 hahahaha...

    There's no accounting for the fact that some people (you, in this case!) have astonishingly poor taste. Rating AC3 over watching paint dry is bad taste. Over FC3 is just inexplicable to the point...

    I love KSP, but it isn't an example of using physics to "improve" gameplay. The physics are the gameplay, essentially (the minute-to-minute gameplay, anyway). That's a valid design, but not what the...

    I don't think developers are "stuck" at all. Players do consider replayability when making purchases - I mean, you can "finish" many indie games in under 4 hours, but equally, many of them can then...

    They weren't.

    Garry's Mod is fun for mucking around in, but it's not a game. Similarly, hilarious stuff in Skyrim is largely hilarious because the physics is terrible, not because the physics is...

    I'm not ashamed, I managed to block that boss fight from my memory entirely, and was the better for it! If anything, you should be ashamed for causing us to experience such traumatic flashbacks!

    I'm not sure that guy is intended to be white - he could easily be Thai, for example (his hair is dyed, to judge from the roots, and presumably his eyebrows too, which is not uncommon with people...

    I think a lot of the games mentioned so far were actually pretty well-reviewed, getting 75-85% metacritics (or even higher!), so I don't know if loving them is "going against the critics/majority"....

    With MMOs, I think a lot of how impressive and deep one finds a world is down to whether it was one of the first MMOs you played, and how long you played it for. Cultural factors play into it too,...

    I think the simple answer is that Rainbow 6 was essentially a hybrid of two different game-styles, both of which are more popular on their own than they are together.

    It doesn't help that the...

    That does happen with games, but only where they are simple enough to effectively be cloned or replaced by very similar games (especially if they have very shallow gameplay) - which is where an awful...

    To be fair, there was a, what, 2000+ year gap right there. If it's 2000 years before VR sets become viable, then maybe we should stop thinking about them!

    More realistically, the OR and it's ilk...

    That seems like a fairly idiosyncratic definition of "WoW Clone". I mean, by that logic, Warhammer Online isn't a "WoW Clone", and a lot of other games which are fairly close to WoW wouldn't count....
