Good stuff.

Time to reinstall IV since I never really finished it. Though I don't think I've ever finished a GTA game due to my inability to give any one game my full undivided attention for too long.

No

And no one would ever ask you to expand. Simply "no" totally suffices.

In Topic: GORE

Gore certainly has a very large amount of immersion.

I can totally understand both aspects of this "debate" regardless of how old the debate is. Too much gore glorifies it to a certain degree but at the same time we can't ignore the fact that gore exists is combat. Would Saving Priave Ryan or Black Hawk Down been as shocking without the gore? Would the director's feelings be conveyed properly if the rating was PG in those films?

I pretty much only play Chivalry at this point and I can tell you of I wasn't lopping heads off with my Claymore the game would not have the same effect.

I don't even think it should be an option. Gore is a part of combat. If gore doesn't suit you there's always Roller Coaster Tycoon to play.

Sounds good. I wonder if the original remake of the original was an exact copy if the psx original, or changed/tweaked content wise.

The GameCube remake had quite a bit of additional content/puzzles.

The core game remained nearly the same but they did add additional stuff so for those who played the original through multiple times (raises hand) had new things to do.

my solution is better: i only buy games i know i'll enjoy.

As do most people. I've been in the gaming community long enough to see past the complaining most people do. It was most prevalent in my MMO days. People would hit up the forums, tell the world how much they hate the game and then devote 12 hours a day to it. How much could one really hate something when they do it longer than anything else one does in a day?

I stopped listening to the vocal minority a long time ago.

i "belly ache" about games because i enjoy mocking bad games. i'm not silly enough to actually waste money on anything from ubisoft, bioware, bis, bethesda, or ea.

Wasting money on a game is different from person to person. You may hate a certain game and I may love it. I won't stop buying from a publisher or developer just because they make some bad games. Each of the studios above have made games that I love. Maybe not BIS, but the rest yes. Do they make more games that I dislike? Absolutely. But they do also make games that I get a lot of enjoyment out of.

and with ground branch incoming, i don't see the point of buying lesser games.Posted Image

Again, subjective. From a realism standpoint there probably won't be any competition. But if I feel like playing a game like UT, will GB give me that fix? No.

to me, the argument "take it for what it is" doesn't make sense. it was always just a game to me, except apparently as i age, my tolerance for bad games doesn't get any higher

And that, sir, is how we are different. I see life from a different viewpoint. I choose to accept what I cannot change and either enjoy it or not support it. I've received more enjoyment out of games since I adopted that philosophy.
