    Indeed! I'm pretty sure that at 20, most people know better than to make death threats, even non-serious ones, in writing, in public forums, against people they're working with. Naming a specific...

    It is a difficult one to define. For my money, I think the key is that the game has a very high "skill cap", which is to say, you can keep getting noticeably better at for almost an unlimited time....

    If you've ever played PC games post-graphics-cards, and have ever had a PC that wasn't 6+ years out-of-date, you are wrong, and you have played at 60fps. Probably more often than you realize.

    I'd have to go with Q3, too, for the same reasons. I can't honestly speak for SC2, but in my college days I played Quake/QuakeWorld and SC1 at pretty high levels, and SC1 was far LESS brain-involved,...

    I am skeptical that they couldn't manage 30fps@1080p on PS4, given the fairly explicit comments from that dev that Ubi have yet to actually contradict (rather than talking around). I'm sure it's true...

    Why do you think that?

    The chances are, whilst you may not know it, many of your PC games are running waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay about 30fps much of the time, and many of them are probably running at...

    What do you disagree about, specifically? PC had a higher resolution (vastly), larger textures, higher framerates (vastly), and certainly things like UT had comparable animation tech and the like. By...

    On PS3? Sure. On an ancient PC, though? Wrong. My PC is going on seven years old, wasn't top of the line then, and last upgrade was four+ years ago (graphics card - a 100-ish one), and Warframe...

    Five years ago, yeah, totally would have been a massive shitstorm. Now? Nah. As you say, it's a meme, not something people really care about. ME3 caused a shitstorm because people were massively...

    I agree that the drive is weaker than it was, but I don't think it has anything to do with games "looking pretty decent" - especially as people have been saying "games look fine!" since at least the...

    Missing the point on purpose isn't exactly the height of wit. :p

    The point he's making is that a negative, exclusionary statement, even an honest one, is still negative and exclusionary....

    That doesn't make any sense, because TB got one, and said it was good. Also, the good reviews have been by people who are actually trustworthy. So I don't buy that there's any reason to be more...

    I don't think there's a connection between "not buying the hype" and being "done with gaming" or the like, despite what the OP is saying. I became able to see through most hype after Warhammer...

    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...

    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.

    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.

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

    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...
