I'll again point out that women score better in math and science. And are routinely pushed away from any kind of computer-related job because most men that end up there are extremely aggro against women and push them right out.

I like the way you make "facts" up and push them right out. And we're all just expected to accept them unchallenged. Well done.

Unions are what drove most unskilled manufacturing jobs to China and elsewhere.

Duh.

The constant swiping and lifting in FPS seems frustrating to me.

Um, that's exactly how a mouse is used on a PC.

Constant swiping and lifting.

That looks a helluva lot more precise than the standard gamepad.

I don't play fps's on consoles because of the imprecise gamepads. This controller may change that.

I had all kinds of bugs in my *3rd* go around with the SP campaign in ARMA 2, long after it was released.

It was *not* supported well at all. Some fanboy BS going on here.

Breaking Bad is alright, but I don't see how it's even in the same ballpark as Sopranos as one of the great alltime drama series.

As a huge fan of the Sopranos, I have to rate Breaking Bad even better. The characters are so well developed that even subtle actions and dialog speak volumes. The writing sucks you deep into their collective psyches without hitting you over the head with it. The transformation of Walt and the good and bad in each character just adds so much more than just a great plotline.

Turn on Anti-Aliasing!

Yeah, it freaking kills me how many developers / publishers ignore basic stuff like AA.

I have an RC flight sim that has wonderful graphics but not even a setting for AA. I have to set it externally and it looks great when I do.

WTF?

I like a challenge, believe me, but Dark Souls: Prepare to Die was ridiculous.

I gave up on it after 2 weeks of bashing my head against the same spot, with checkpoints so far apart that I had to repeat the tedious stuff leading up to where I was stuck ad nauseum.

Waste of money.

HAHA Titan, GTX 780, GTX 770... nVidia is on a roll while AMD... not so much

Not sure why you're all HAHA about that.

No competition is NOT a good thing for consumers. You may want to take a basic econ course.

Funny how me and most other semi-knowledgeable folks knew that forcing Metro down people's throats was a bad idea.

Yet M$, the so-called experts, couldn't see that.

Sad beyond belief.

Iím sorry, but I have to laugh and shake my head when I read this kind of comments. So, 10 to 15 hours of game play is not worth 60 dollars. But many of the same people claiming that this game is not worth that price will go out and have gone out and spent just as much on a 5 hour game like COD.

How do you all justify that reasoning when this game is far superiour in all regards? Iím truly baffled at comments like this. Just because a game does not have MP does not make that game any less of a game especially when the game play and story are far better.

Wow, your ASSumptions are astounding. Why would you ASSume that I would make the statement I did if I previously went out and spent $60 on a 5-hour CoD game? Look up the definition of strawman. Your argument is ridiculous.

I'll have just as much fun in a year playing this game for $20 as you do now playing it for $60. Enjoy.

People have no issue paying for 90min of entertainment at around $20...so 15 hours of interactive entertainment for $60 isn't all that bad.

I think it's ridiculous that someone would pay $20 to watch a 90-minute movie with some popcorn and a soda.

But that's just me.

The game isn't perfect but after spending some time with it I have no problem recommending it to people for $60 or less.

Sorry, but 15 hours of gameplay isn't worth $60.

I'll wait until it hits about the $20 price point.

Yeah the AMD article sounds like a bunch of excuses.

The fact that it took a journalist using FRAPS to expose an obvious problem, shows a sad lack of quality control / testing on the AMD side.

What hogwash.

I wish "gamers" would stop acting like little children who have to have their toys NOW and are incapable of making rational buying choices.

If idiots continue to buy crap, then that's what companies will continue to make.

Duh.

I laugh at all the people here who bought this trash.

What I don't really seem to understand is why they have to go for the Skyrim setting. Sure, they have to follow the books.. which I guess is a good enough reason -- but still.

Skyrim setting? What would you prefer, the Crysis setting?
