My only interest in this is due to criterions involvement.


This is exactly why I have no interest in it :p EA killed NFS(for me) by giving it to Criterion and giving them the ok to continue making the same games under another name. It doesn't feel like NFS at all.

Well, if you're going to go that route, I'd say it's not been the same since NFS3, aka the original hot pursuit...


Really? I'd say that Hot Pursuit 2(sixth game) is the last of the NFS games in the vein of Hot Pursuit(third game).
I also loved the games after, from Underground to Undercover. It still felt like NFS even though you had all this customization and gangsta stuff :p
Everything after is poop. Shift was interesting though.

I'm guessing that I liked the first two generations. EA started trying all kinds of weird sh*t that wasn't NFS after that.

More choice never trumps quality -- good games sell, especially in the indie scene.

But I know what you mean ITB, which is why voting of greenlight works for indies.

Greenlight is not needed for AAA which always have less passion -- just some hobbled 'throw money at it' formula and boom it's listed.

I haven't made a study on it or anything, but I think that if there are too many games, it ends up being "incredibly amazing games sell, good games don't."

Edit: I think that voting works, but Steam seems to me to be adding a crapton of games for the sake of it, not for quality. No way all these games got enough votes.

I don't really understand why people object to having more games on Steam. You aren't obligated to buy them. If you're unsure if a game is worth buying, do some research. It's not rocket science. There's nothing wrong with having choices.

One potential problem is that the good games get buried under all the crap around it and it's a lot tougher to get exposure simply because of the amount of other games in the same category. Basically, it's tougher now for good indie games to make a profit.

Strong opinion there mate, so that's awesome. I get passionate about games as well. And Sid would not argue your description that Pirates! Is a collection of arcade mini-games. Along with a multitude of simple simulations and subsystems that bring the world alive and generate events.

But to have absolute, insane HATRED for something so universally acclaimed as genius that it still holds up extremely well today, predating and heavily inspiring the games you are rooting for confuses me. Are you stuck with no wind, trying to return to the Bahamas from an expedition to veracruz with a mutinous crew and no Grog or something?

Woa there. "insane HATRED"? No. What I meant is that, as a pirate simulation, it's total garbage. Now, Pirates! isn't a pirate simulation, but people actually use it as the gold standard for pirate simulations. This is what angers me. The game itself isn't offensive to me, other than the fact that I expected a pirate simulation and got an arcade game. As an arcade game, it was incredibly shallow and I got bored of it VERY fast. Waste of my cash. I realllly don't get why so many people loved it. But my "regular HATRED" is toward the mislabeling of Pirates!, not the game itself.

EDIT: The Akella games sure have flaws. Some would say more than redeeming qualities, which I'm not going to argue against, but they're frickin real pirate simulations. Once you get past the difficulty wall, the horrible interface and the other quirks, you're left with an amazing experience. Pirates of the Carribean is in my top 10 games of all time because of that.

I'd much rather have deep, complex and crazy simulation-like games than simple flashy arcade games. I think you'll agree that we have almost none of the former and almost only of the later nowadays.

zomg, all the games you mentioned have mediocre ship to ship combat, whereas the combat in Pirates! is fucking awesome.

My opinion is so opposed to yours I almost exploded. The ship to ship combat in the Akella games is amazing and a lot more realistic than in Pirates! It's very hard to be good at it though, perhaps that's your issue.

zomg, I hate it when people use Sid Meier's pirates as a model of a good pirate game. It's arcade garbage! It's basically a skin over arcade mini-games.

If you want a real pirate game, play the Akella games: Pirates of the Carribean, Sea Dogs, Age of pirates...

So are many things, yes it's true they don't all want you for some reason or another. Literally 100's of reasons why. And you sort of changed your tune... went from they run from you to I've had GF's that accepted me. It's hard to be Dick the Couples Therapist on this end. LOL

Geez, this is getting awfully personal I've had girlfriends who were ok with gaming, but when I date, most women see it as an important negative(hense the "they run away" part). I'm not going to elaborate further on my personal life :p I do think that the current below-18 generation is a lot more accepting of gaming though.

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.

Ask Dick:
Not as rare as a "Great Catch". Ok, like how many hours are you playing and are you willing to give several of them up to make a relationship happen? Why are you being described as "being a gamer"?

Perhaps you are in the casual crowd, known as fashionable to me. There are many other clicks out there. I'm not saying it helps that you are a gamer, but I didn't find it (married now) the issue, unless I was compulsive.

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.

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 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
