I really liked Supreme Commander 2 and Homefront for example that others hated here. Never stopped me from having fun with it regardless of the general feedback from the community. I also got Starcraft and World of Warcraft and hated both, but millions of others love those games. To me it is not a victory or loss as in a battle, it is my opinion vs others. Do you agree with me or not on a game doesn't change my enjoyment of the game nor my opinion on it. But that's just me.
Exactly. I thought Far Cry 2 was an excellent game and was better than Crysis graphically but I know that's not a popular opinion around here. Personally I think it's good that Darks wants to correct people and defend his position because that's he believes but I personally disagree. I don't need to play the game to know that it's bad because - I have review sites that I trust, gameplay videos, review aggregate sites and user opinions to rely on. Are they always right? Of course not but I know that I'm not willing to pick this game up for any more than £10 / $15 and almost certainly not even at that price.
