BoNeLeSS, not everyone is going to like the game. I've seen people who want to marry it, people who think the whole lot of it stinks, and others who love it right up until the end. If you like it, great. If others don't agree that the game is 'amazing', learn to live with it.

20. Re: So boring Jan 22, 2005, 04:20 Reactor
 
I can't stand this game of the year garbage. No one likes everything. Tons of people like Farcry, HL2 and Doom 3. But then, tons of people think Farcry stinks, HL2 is plain badly written and boring, and Doom 3 is a blight upon the original games. Everyone knows the only reason these kinds of things exist is so a bunch of gamers can have their say, and so that developers can stick another lame GOTY sticker on the side of their re-released boxes. Maybe someone should tell them that the average gamer doesn't give two hoots about it.

After www.gameoftheyear.com (which has now been updated from Half-Life 1 to 2) it's blatantly obvious it's the developers who run around deeming their own games GOTY and not the gamers themselves. Last year I remember seeing three games all with GOTY stickers on them, sitting right next to each other on the shelf. It's lame.

Game of the year rewards, take a flipping hike. We'll make our own minds up about each game- end of story.

Why is it, always about 20 posts into a topic, the 'I won't play it unless it evolves the genre' whiners always rock up? If it entertains, great. I personally don't need an fps to 'evolve the genre' every single freaking time. Quake 1- shooter. Quake 2- shooter. Quake 3 (you'll never guess this)- shooter. Why the heck does Quake 4 have to be different? If you want something different, play a different game for goodness sakes.

I loved Chrome. Putting it on the hardest difficulty gave you a really good challenge, without the game being unfair.

"there's a few good nuggets here and there about being nice to people would make the world a better place, but it's drowned out in 'begats' and God smiting people who didn't do what he said to do."

Did you even read the bible? If that's all you think it's about, you must have read it upside down and backwards.

"However,the ‘original’ Greek text was not written until around the mid-Fourth Century and was a revised edition of writings compiled decades earlier in Aramaic and Hebrew."

Man, you are way off track. The Greek was based on Aramaic and Hebrew? *shakes head*

If it's anything like Codename Outbreak, this will be one fun game. Looking forward to it.

Having to authenticate HL2 to play singleplayer was a free surprise for the community, so... I'm sure this next one will be great!

"They are still bound with Vivendi by contract, in case you haven't noticed..."

Yes, this is true. My point still stands... unless Vivendi had a contract about the authentication process as well, of course.

Nice points, WaltC.

D4rkKnight, what the heck are you on about? I know all of that. My point was that the purpose of Steam is more than an avenue for Valve to sell online, in contrast to the point ^Drag0n^ had made. Quit stating the obvious, and start listening to what I'm saying. Steam may simply look like a way for Valve to cut out the middle man so they can avoid the *sob* sad story of paying a publisher/distributor , but I believe the future will prove otherwise. If all Valve wanted to do was 'try to corner that decent chunk of the market thats willing to purchase online' they wouldn't have needed the authentication crud that goes with it. And, please don't try and tell me that's there to stop pirates. It's not going to do anything at all to stop them, and I'd be surprised if Valve haven't come to the same conclusion.

"The reason behind steam is to give 100% of the money paid for the product to the DEVELOPER as opposed to Vivendi/Havas/Universal/Sierra/"Evil-Dog-Empire-of-Satan"."


You don't need to make it sound like a sob-story, as if Valve are being hard hard done by. Every developer who wants their game on a store shelf has to work by those conditions. Somehow I doubt Steam is only about taking all the profits. If they wanted to avoid the costs of putting Half-Life 2 on the shelves, they could have simply sold direct to the online customer (only), the same way self-publishing indie developers have been doing it for years. There's much more to Steam, I guarentee. All the authentication hoo-hah is as much about making the game player Valve's bitch, as it is about cutting out the middle man.

"The AI is definitely inferior to what HL1 had to offer, HL1's black ops still have to be beaten by any game."

What the heck... are you insane? Half-Life 1's AI sucked. It was basic predictable way-point AI. Those black ops guys were so easy to kill it was stupid, as soon as you worked out where their waypoints were.

It doesn't look that great. The ships look good in all their pixel shader glory, but the backgrounds look like a complete disaster in comparison. Also, it didn't help releasing a singleplayer game without any form of instructions. I played it for about half an hour, couldn't work out what to do, and deleted it. I'm sure there's a good game under the mess of menus somewhere, but I couldn't find it (and I'm generally good at working out games without instructions).

All I want to know is which deaf dumb and blind moron said “One of the Biggest Surprises of the Year!!”. You'd have to be living under a rock for the last year to have missed the screenshots, movies, and two demos (not to mention all the other hype surrounding it).

SFC 1 was great, 2 was a cheaper version of 1, and 3... I have no idea, but perhaps the add-on would go some way to making it better. After all, who cares what SFC3 was like if the add-on turns it into something worth playing?

24. Re: Australian Censorship Oct 26, 2004, 11:15 Reactor
 
From what I understand, if a game is going to be banned over here, someone then turns around the game company and asks something like, "Could you make the blood green?" and then all the problems go away. It's happened before a number of times, so I'd be surprised if HL2 doesn't appear in aus (assuming it doesn't meet the MA 15+ rating).
