Sorry, I already paid full price for the game and the DLC, I'm not paying 5 bucks (even if I did have it) for what should be given for free.

Console Games Have Helped Save The PC.

Well, I'd say that ports of console games then made available via digital distribution "saved" the PC.

But at what price? Massive dumbization of FPS games for once. I can't recall the last FPS that was worth it post Q3A and UT tbh, especially for MP. They removed so many stuff it's mind boggling.

-Proprietary sounds for each items picked up, giving auditory clues to whereabouts. ( That's something I mastered at Q3A and it gave me a HUGE advantage )
-Complex maps.
-Health packs.
-NO FUCKING EXPANDING CROSSHAIRS.
-Maps sometimes better suited for some kind of weapons, rockets for closed environments/corridors, then sometimes for others, like rails for open world, etc.
-Choices of where to go next where of prime importance. Counterstrike then implement the "it's mostly get to the front, spray and pray the crosshair expansion is mercifull and nets you more hits than misses" gameplay. Somewhat alleviated today by the gunsights.
-Back then it was furious fast paced and you actually had to have reflexes and strategies. I can't remember how many times outsmarting my opponent while being more accurate than the other guy saved my ass because of guns reload time and some things like grenade launcher/corner flight time calculations and strike while between shots kind of thing.

Right now it's all CoD Clones crap. I can't bear to even look at someone else playing.

And that only 1 example for only FPS games... Really.

Um you can't call console FPS games dumb, then say Quake 3 Arena was better when all you had to do was jump and shoot, same with UT. Auditory Clues on objects that don't make noise? When's the last time a gun made noise without being fired?

I'm sorry Simon but your post is full of so many holes it might as well be a screen door on a submarine.

I had some issues with BF2142 and Spore, and I checked the EA page and they have a service where they will call you back. Well they called me back within a min, and ended up with the GOTY code for 2142 for free. I'm all about EA hating as the next person but they were awesome.
Now if I could just get punkbuster to quit banning me every time I try to play 2142...

Controls are the same as they have been since GTA 3, with just different locations for the buttons. Granted I wouldn't mind more FPS type food controls, but after GTA 3, GTA 4 (2 DLC's), Red Dead Redemption and LA Noire all having the same type of character movement, GTA 5 is more of the same.

Why is it every time I go to an Ars Technia page, when I hit the back button (to come back here for example), Ars has loaded 6-7 times in my back button history?

The real poison to any marriage are in-laws. Keep them more than 1000 miles away and you'll be fine.
1033 miles from my current location is Orlando Florida. Trust me those extra 33 miles help!

Blues, the success to being married is two things, you should have been told this when you got married. Always agree with her and you are always right.

As a gay guy even I KNOW this rule. Congrats Blue, but for some reason I was having a Everyone Loves Raymond flashback.

*insert joke about the echo*

Is it really wise for Sony to allow Real Names with their history of theft?

Is it really wise for Microsoft to allow internet connectivity at all with their operating systems history of security holes?

Of course, the hack happened but many other companies were hacked over the past decade, they learn from it and move on in most cases.

Is that why last month I had both my Playstation and SOE account hacked after changing my passwords twice since Sony was hacked?

Only if a game comes out that actually allows for Modding of the game.

When's the last time there was a Unreal Engine game that had mods tools?

Take all the mech games, make 1 engine, import all the sound/story files and I'd be a happy bitch.

But I'd still prefer a Mech 4 upgrade over anything else.
