If I had to choose a "bias" at all, it's people who have consolitis - the disease that spread throughout the connected world spreading the untruth that the console is everything and PC gaming is dying. And now that fad is gone, we're left with some sourfaces who choose offense when it's mentioned that consoles are sub par gaming machines. And they forget that not long ago they'd pay anything even for complete garbage, another sour point.

You speak the truth, the reality is most of gaming's commenters, websites, and people behind popular shows are idiots pandering to retards.

Game quality took a nose dive when games became mainstream around 2000'ish. Consoles generally attract dumber as a rule. There was a time where deep gameplay mechanics and finished games actually existed and things weren't permanently broken with locked down games. Almost every game tries to be a movie nowadays (mass effect, call of duty, gta, assassins creed) all the big names are essentially movies wrapped in shells of gameplay.

The fact that many game commenters have a pro console bias is proof they aren't real gamers. Anyone who grew up on atari, Nintendo, Playstation, and has a brain is downright horrified at the severe quality drop in modern games and the horrible direction games went (f2P/mmo/microtransactions). All this being allowed, allows business types to rape the stupid masses silly and it spells shitty games.

When unfinished games receive universally high praise (like Asscreed 1 was).

They can do better. We should expect our companies to do better. But, for whatever reason, while this board is very quick to make all kinds of demands that corporations do everything better, those same people are equally quick to defend them whenever it turns to race, gender or sexuality.

That's because we're talking about escapism here, we're not talking about some little old lady being pushed out of her apartment or being discriminated against. We're talking about FUCKING FICTIONAL CHARACTERS IN FICTIONAL WORLDS. Yes having more white/brown/asian/whatever models is going to change the world... Not.

People like you need to get a fucking clue, 99% of people of all colors and creeds give not one fuck about sex/race/gender in videogames. That tells you all you need to know about the race/sex/gender weirdo's on the internet broadcasting their extreme minority opinion.

But we should ask ourselves why angry white men come out of the wood work any time someone mentions race or encourages diversity.

In general, here at Blue's News any time anything regarding diversity is posted, whether it be race, gender, or sexual preference, a lot of straight white males get very angry and talk about how consideration for these things just isn't necessary and how people should just shut up about it.

They do this for good reason, people always bring their distorted political agenda's to try to fuck up one of the last bastions of entertainment that never was anything other then naked entertainment.

If someone went off about how patriarchal mario and princess in Super mario bros. was I'd punch those people in the face.

People, especially those with distorted understanding of the world (aka race, sex, gender, discrimination) and try to bring it into gaming is disgusting.

People are so stupid and poor at living in reality they fuck up reality by injecting their non reality based bullshit into our entertainment which never was anything but pure escapism.

Does anyone really believe from the NES to PS2 era that developers around the world had some kind of political agenda? Fuck no. Dev's wanted to make good games and publishers wanted to make money. That's it. Anyone who pretends videogames are more than that are morons.

Most people commenting on race,sex, discrimination, etc, are not of high enough intelligence or informed enough to even comment on the matter. Why not focus on real problems instead of first world problems(tm).

You know you have first world problems when you're focusing on things in videogames instead of you know, real atrocities and real prejudice in the world at large.

The reality is most people who complain about their distorted views in gaming don't really give a shit about such said issues or they'd focus their efforts on places and parts of the world that really mattered. Entertainment has to be the most dilletantish and moronic place to focus your energy if you want to pull mankind out of the shitter.

Meh, piss off. I'm not a computer wizz at all. I play PC games since I was 5 years old (28 now) and I'm pro enough not to fuck up my rig and fix most general issues, but I've no idea wtf an ssfn* file is. If this message would pop up for me, it would completely depend on my state of mind whether I'd obey or flag it as phishing shit.

It looks very legit to me and I don't see any typos in the screenshot. I'm Dutch. To say people who fall for this deserve it is not insulting those people, but a clear portrayal of your lack of empathy. I spit on your demeanor.

Bullshit, it doesn't take being 'a computer whiz' or a 'nerd' you're just stupid. Phishing scams are easy to detect by looking at the user interface and/or source of what it is you're looking at. In the age of google, nobody has any excuses. You can fucking go ask on a forum or look it up. You don't have to be a 'whiz' you can go ask people who know.

Although I don't consider the state of PC gaming to be all woe and dreariness, I have to wonder if the answer isn't going to depend on who is asking the question. These guys discuss how revenue is greater, but don't broach the issue of unit sales.

The PC is by var the more versatile platform, which is why it has MMOs and other kinds of games that can't easily be done on consoles. But when it comes to traditional AAA game releases consoles move more units, consoles get more exclusives, and consoles form the lowest common denominator. It's this schism that allows the panel to say that PC gaming is doing great, while at the same time allowing players to lament the lack of games for the PC.

The reality is big AAA games are just too massive and costly to produce (aka, making a good one that has depth is too hard for most devs).

This is why when game dev team sizes and costs were in the 'sweet spot' we got things like Quake 2/3, Unreal tournament, Civilization 1/2/3, Alpha centauri, etc.

Most "new games" are merely movies with a side dish of really oversimplified gameplay to cater to the reflexless masses.

Sanctum was a 70 on metacritic with a user score of 6.7. Sanctum 2 is a 77 with a user score of 7.6. Who the hell needs facts these days?

My apologies I was looking at the xbox version of S2. Still doesn't matter, Sanctum was a shitty tower defense clone cashing in on the dumb tasteless masses. (aka if you liked it, you are one of the dumb masses).

It's part of why metacritic scores are all over the place, the masses are asses.

Sanctum was such shit, the user score was 4.5. The reality was the game devs behind Goat simulator just won the attention lottery is all. They were never great at anything, they were just trying to take advantage of trends and building shitty clones to cash in on the dumb masses.

The last thing the world needed was more tower defense.

Yes, too much innovation is why the hundredth iteration of Mario doesn't sell, while stuff like Papers, Please, The Stanley Parable, and Gone Home are big on the PC.

While a few mainstays sell, notice the console isn't selling. If your console isn't selling that means the majority of gamers can pass on what you're selling them. Nintendo's properties are all suffering quality drops fresh minds (kids) don't understand the quality has dropped and hence Nintendo is on life-support to some extent. The fact is they lost a huge load of all their long term customers.

The Wii was my last nintendo console because I got fed up with all the stupid mistakes Nintendo kept making.

It's not that gamers are killing videogames, it's that us oldsters were abandoned. Many of us would like a REAL starfox 64 part 2, a much better metroid than Metroid : Other M, etc.

The reality is the internet is filled with lower cognitive die-hard fans that doesn't understand that for many gamers Nintendo's main games have declined severely in quality because they are too stupid to even begin to understand where many of Nintendo's main franchises are broken.

If Zelda had went more in the darksiders 1 direction towards more action oriented heroic combat with link, I would have loved it. Since I came mainly to zelda for the combat and interaction with the worlds objects (the game) and the challenge.

Games have been so dumbed down and movie-fied that they are trying to be a product for everyone and end up being a product for no-one.

I'd love to see Zelda 2 sequel for the NES rebooted in SNES style way for virtual console for instance.

i.e. a spiritual sequel to zelda 2 (sidescroller) with all the gaming knowledge that has been gained over the past 20 years. Likely to happen? Not a chance.

Gaming companies have gotten so far away from their roots by catering to people who don't get games. The internet attracts trash by the bucketload who have no clue to game quality tragically.

So even though you don't think it's worth paying for...you still downloaded and played it, enough to the stealth sections at least. You know there is a demo on steam right?

Why do people come up with these nonsensical reasons to justify stealing?

Look just because YOU don't understand my reasoning doesn't mean I don't have valid justifications. I could sit here and tell you the truth all day and you wouldn't get it. Learn the science.

I grew up in the 90's, so I hate steam and the game industry. When I pay for a game I want to own it, the whole copyright/intellectual property regime of america is criminal and you are too historically naive to have any kind of historical sense of how corrupt businesses like the game industry really are. You are naively moral, you operate on the assumption that corporate america is 'essentially good' and not 'essentially criminal' and that's what makes you fucking stupid for anyone who has a brain and who's an adult and fully aware of all the corruption in the world and especially the governments and corporations of the world.

Quotation: "If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so."-- Thomas jefferson

I will never pay full price for a steamworks DRM'd game, ever, but I know dev's got to eat and most gamers are cretinous morons like you. So you mindlessly hand over money to criminals like gabe at valve who have fucked up gaming by normalizing DRM.

Always online, DRM, etc, is the worst of all possible worlds for someone who grew up in the 90's and who isn't stupid. Games are so dumbed down and lower quality today that they aren't really worth anything besides a bargain price.

Since I grew up in the 80's/90's I highly value REPLAYABILITY, which games like civilization have. So many games dont have replayability, they are just giant movies and one time playthroughs and it sucks because game devs of today don't have to do any hard work because 90% of the gaming audience are tasteless cretins.

I miss the days of civlization/alpha centauri levels of fun and replayability and there's no way I'm going to treat a criminal industry with respect who buy politicians and laws taking away my rights to own the shit that I buy. We live in a world of unjust laws and have returned to an age of kings and serfs/peasants because when you have billions of dollars you can get all sorts of laws passed that take away peoples rights.

You are too clueless to understand just how fucked up the world is and that you are not obligated to obey irresponsible rich people and their corporations.

The reality is I agree 'piracy' is a bad thing, but so is monopoly (aka dictatorial control) over ideas that copyright law and intellectual property are. These are backhanded ways to strip people of their rights and america is well known for its criminality in its government and upper class. If the world was filled with adults I would agree with your position, but it's not, you are not literate enough to make any kind of moral judgement regarding the state of the world sadly.

It's a very average game, the story is just garbage. The fighting is just 'ok'. I'd download a copy of the piratebay.org first, play some and decide if you want to plunk down money for it.

The game could have been really great but the developers had no fucking clue what they are doing, it really feels like half the dev team knew what they were doing and the other half didn't.

The stealth sections are probably the worst, in the sense that they took resources away from refining other sections of the game. That and because they spent so much time on them and the fancy little bits of story and set pieces, the combat is not as anywhere near polished and deep as it should have been.

The "opening" level they spent so much god damn time and money on, like idiots, they should have spent that time and money making the combat and the rest of the game better. The other set piece later in the game with the doll maker was just such a waste of money and time for the devs, I wanted to basically kill whoever lead the development of this game. They should have went with a minimal story and just went full gameplay because the resources were spread so thin over too many game systems, so everything goes from feeling average, to downright unfinished to 'thrown together'.

I would have been fine without all that 'god of war movie' bullshit at the beginning. The combat is stuck in 'meh' ville but controls solidly, just a lack of polish and imagination in the enemies sadly because of bad direction and hence resources spread too thin.

You can tell there are some skilled devs on the team but they were under poor design direction/leadership/time constraints. So it's just average to mediocre in places.

Why does gaming media keep treating this broad like she's some master game designer when she's done exactly jack? Afraid to come off looking like misogynists?

It's gamasutra, that is where the industry goes to circle jerk and the guy who runs that site is all about ad revenue and clickbait. They purposely post and highlight controversial articles to drive ad revenue. Just look at all the dicksucking of DRM/F2P by Nicholas lovell.

So they give platforms to retards and assholes. Tragically it works because people attack and pay attention to things they hate.
