Nah, being a gamer is still seen as an horrible thing. Try talking to a girl and telling her you're a gamer and see her interest instantly disapear :p

Depends on girl and a bit on race. Yeah it's horrible if that is all you do and can't support yourself because of it. That's any destructive addiction. Don't confuse girls not liking you because of gaming... your attitude and looks play a large role.

I'm absolutely a great catch. I take care of myself and have a good career. I'm also modest But it doesn't matter. The girls hear you're a gamer, they run away fast. It's not me, the stereotype is in full effect still. Of course there are exceptions, but they are rare.

Because believe it or not "gamer" has hugely negative connotations for everyone else that sees gaming as a waste of time.

That use to be a thing... if it still is then were talking about old people set in their ways. If Activision is ashamed of making games, then well I don't know anymore.

Ok there could be a small sliver of people that only play COD everyday and nothing else. They still fall into gamer... if you're doing it everyday I got to call it what it is, embarrassing to that person or not.

I still felt calling a WoW player who plays 8 hours a day hardcode and they don't play anything else. COD isn't a casual game, it falls under hardcore, even though it's mainstream. It's not farmville, it's hardcore killing and swearing and all the stuff that comes with that type of game.

All imo.

Also, what he's basically saying is that COD is made for the lowest common denominator, and that they're aware of it and are actively reinforcing this for as long as it's going to make them money.

It's nothing we didn't already know and I'm not sure I mind. I'm never going to play a COD game, but it's a good gateway drug to get more people into this hobby/industry.

There's a bad side effect though. This new public hasn't got much gaming experience, and devs want to make a profit, so they're going to simplify their games for these new gamers. This is basically the massive dumbing down of games we've been seeing in the past 10 years. It used to sicken me, but I'm tired of complaining. Now that console gamers have a bit more experience, we're starting to see more interesting games, but it feels like we lost 10 years of gamign evolution for no reason.

I think I understand what he means. The people he mentions only play COD because it's the "cool" thing and all their friends are doing it. They aren't into the gaming culture and aren't interested in going in deeper or trying different games. They think of gaming as being geeky and uncool and don't see playing COD as part of that.

It's kinda like loving a metal band, but having no interest in metal or finding other bands. You do listen to metal all the time, but you're not a metal head...

Yeah it would have been hard to be more vague and confusing about that second screen thing...

Also the new game+ is kind of a let down... I mean they could have added something more to it...

You mean like how pretty much every other game in existence that offers New Game+ doesn't actually add fuck-all to the game?

I don't see how it's a letdown seeing as how it's exactly what New Game+ is.

Hmmm, no. Most games with "new game+" or "playthroughs" add different game mechanics, a bump in difficulty, alternate endings and other things like that.

I had more fun with Diablo 3, but the mechanics of PoE are better. So, if you're hardcore about your arpgs, go with poe.

Oh sh*t I figured it out. This is a money laundering scheme! Chris is a huge drug dealer and he needs to get his money cleaned. This is how they keep getting funding. I may have watched too much Breaking Bad.

I didn't play the expansions, but I don't know if I want to play this again... Sure the boss fights sucked, but I got past them. Maybe I could try to do it without ever being seen/knocking anyone out.
I know there's an achievement for 100% non lethal playthrough.

I already got that achievement. Well, I didn't, because apparently, dumping an uncounscious body down a building counts as a kill... But, basically, I played it like that. I went around and stunned people though. I could replay it without even touching anyone or even leaving a trace behind... I don't know, was hoping you guys would coax me into getting it

GOG is too nice... Since this is drm-free, it's basically GOG giving the game away for free. I would rather they kept the money and stayed afloat or improved...

If you're a hardcore Diablo player, you'll love this. Tons of builds and things to calculate. It's tough, but fair. The system is very solid.

I played it for 20-30 hours, but then lost interest. I'm no hardcore Diablo guy. I hate their skill system and the classes aren't different enough. Also, it's not satisfying enough to kill monsters. But for a free game, and trust me, this is truly free, no pay to win, it's one of the best out there. I'd rather play Hellgate Tokyo though

Stanley Parable is awesome! I wouldn't really call it a game though... I have no idea what I'd call it! It's a lot of fun for three hours.

wtf. Steam says I played 11 hours. There's NO way that's correct.

Retaliator
Gladiator
Pretty cool stuff! I wonder if the single-player campaign will include the same ships that are in MP though..

No. The single player campaign takes places in the military. You'll be flying military ships. I guess there could be an "undercover" mission where you'd fly other ships...

Played Space Rangers 2 and hated it. It fits in this weird niche that I can't stand. It feels like Sid Meier's pirates.
