That way, if the game sucks, you can't be disappointed.

On Blues? Are you kidding?

I thought it was great fun. It was a mad, buggy, crazy mess of a game... but it was fun.

For me, anyway.

I'm holding out to see a solid review for the DS (hopefully the game doesn't ship with a ton of bugs this time) but I'm looking forward to it.

Delta Force: Black Hawk Down by NovaLogic imho has the BEST online sniper deathmatch.

I thought DF2 did, personally. Hiding amongst the voxels was just great fun.

DVD playback out of box. Oh boy, it was SO HARD to load my favorite media player.

True, not much can replace Zoom Player for me. However, although XP does have Media Center (well, sort of) a decent version of Vista has an improved Media Center, which out of all the PVR software I've used is certainly one of the best around (if not the best).

It's a bit of a cherry on top of Vista, but it's worth noting.

I'm a big Stardock fan, but... yes, I make the exact same assumption.

False, XP can kill unresponsive apps from the task manager if and when they happen.

After about four years of waiting, sure. Process Explorer is the only real way to kill an app under XP, and a lot of (DRM'd) games clash with it. But... task manager? Yeesh.

VLC player for XP free of Windows Media Player and free period.

Yes, and it's also ugly as all heck, clunky, and hardly plays anything back.

XP + window blinds + object dock + dreamscapes is a better looking, faster performing and more compatible OS than Vista and 100% less annoying, unlike you

Go on, tell us. You've just turned 10, haven't you?

It's all about the goodness of the uninstall dialogue. I love XP, but uninstalling programs is just a chore. Under Vista, it's actually somewhat enjoyable.

Every time I want to remind myself why Vista is better than XP, I go and uninstall a program.

That was worth the upgrade cost alone.

This is illustrated by the fact that while people who stuck with Vista now like it, while those who tried it and quit have been turned off from ever trying it again.

With that I completely agree. If that's what you meant by what you said, no worries.

It has nothing to do with never actually changing from something, dumbass.

No, you're the dumbass. That's not what I was talking about. Good job defending the point no one was attacking. Anyway, on with the thread...

For those saying that Vista is good, you have to remember that you only get one try at making a first impression, and that impression sticks with you forever.

OH MY GOODNESS! FOREVER!?

Seriously, that is one brainless statement. If impressions stay with you forever, put your computer in the bin and forget being a software user.

LAN play, it never worked, multiplayer code was horrific back then.

Really? I played it a lot... and it still ranks as one of the best sniper hunting games

Nope. It's just the most logical solution I could come up with.

Uh oh.

Unfortunately, the first group is significantly larger than the latter which is why we have so much mediocre drivel reigning over the market. As always, profit takes precedence over quality.

I agree, but there you go with the 'quality' word again. Also, I like how you make it sound as if everyone that isn't a hardcore gamer is a drooling idiot, who has no interest in (and let's use the magical term) quality writing. Of course, you're right that the majority likely don't care, but don't push it. Just because games these days cater for the majority doesn't mean they're all rubbish.

...the bars set years ago when accessibility and mainstream appeal weren't the primary focus in game development....

When was that? Whenever it was, I sure missed it. Last time I checked the vast majority of games have always been developed for the majority. Casual gamer numbers have grown, for sure, but it's not as if everyone suddenly decided to switch from developing for the minority.

Scottish Martial Arts provided a lengthy explanation for you.

No, he provided me with quite strange, opinionated drivel.

In my humble opinion, good writing ultimately accomplishes two things: It makes you think and it evokes emotion.

Yes, in your opinion. But, as we've discovered, a team of experienced hardcore super-gamers with yourself at the command does not exist, so the term 'quality' is not defined by your opinion.

So yeah, no one wants to read shit they find boring.

I couldn't agree more, which is why this was the only line of your post I read.

...failing to surpass the writing of a great game renowned for it's writing isn't a failure. Fallout 3 has more interesting quests and a better defined storyline than many many other games.

I agree with that.

At the very least, the bar should be set by an elite group of players who have tons of experience and know which games are truly the best.

Sorry, I don't mean to sound insulting... but did you get a 12 year old friend to write that?

Just quality.

Sorry, I'll need more than "Just quality", or a few aspects you personally consider important.

Stories are about people...

You lost me at that statement.
