It's as if game designers don't even know what gamers want anymore. Why do companies waste their time and money on this crap? It's not like they're going to profit very much, if at all.

I really enjoyed L.A. Noire. It was different, had unique graphics (best facial animations I've ever seen), interesting missions, and was good quality. I was really looking forward to another game.

My phone is almost 2 generations old and still runs the apps that I use just fine. My pc is almost 5 years old (even the gfx card) and still runs current games at an acceptable frame rate.

The issue is that there's nothing interesting with hardware that causes programmers to do something new and different for the average consumer. You're limited to what the hardware can do. 3D games, spreadsheets, word processors, video editing, audio editing, media players, CAD programs, all have been around for a long time. Not to mention that most productivity apps run in a browser now.

I'm thinking that we really need a whole new paradigm shift, like really pushing towards quantum computers and things like AR to create another hardware/software bubble. Otherwise, we'll continues to make the same apps over and over again with just different features.

The concept was good in the first one, but lacked in fun factor.

EA needs to give up on the sports games. NHL 16 was so bad that it seemed like the game was an afterthought.

Already learned my lesson about buying Total Wars at launch...

Yeah, I bought 2 of the games and both would crash like 20 minutes into the game (especially Empire) and I eventually gave up on the Total War series. As much as I enjoy Warhammer theme, I doubt I'll go for this. Maybe if it's $9.99 on Steam someday.

lol, I really hope VR just tanks and goes Virtual Boy and you're all stuck playing in 2D with shit frame rates at a needlessly high res for the next 10 years bwahahahaha

pc gamers sure deserve no less after collectively shitting on 3D like they did...

This could actually happen. Software is lagging behind hardware more and more as time goes on. I mean, look at the state of computer hardware today. Very powerful cpus, amazing gpus, extremely fast memory, all run pretty efficiently. Now look at the software. The features we're seeing in games, 3D engines, audio processing has been taking baby steps compared to hardware. And it's all the same kind of games we've been playing for years, with just minor tweaks to the features. Software needs to take a big giant leap forward, or else the video game industry is going to crash. It has to at some point. People can only play the same sh1t over and over for so long. The industry needs something mind-blowing, and it ain't going to be hardware. We already have mind-blowing hardware, just nothing to show for it.

Sometimes complaining does work.

MS always seems to be long on talk and short on delivery.

What do you mean? You all complained about no Start menu in Windows 8 and they delivered lol

Software has slipped pretty far behind hardware at this point. Multi-core cpus, high-end graphics chipsets, all for software that can run on 6 year old hardware. If it wasn't for the processing demand of VR, there would be no reason to upgrade (and I'm not upgrading for VR 1.0). What's the point of all this if game genres aren't evolving and the same game mechanics work pretty well with older hardware? Software is lacking bigtime.

Their games have always been a buggy mess. I regret buying the two that I did back in the day. No one is preordering because of their reputation. If they think that the Warhammer franchise is going to give them instant sales, they've got another thing coming. It's more like a "wait and see" to see what they deliver.

News Comments > The Elder Scrolls Online DLC Plans

Definitely one of the loneliest mmos I've ever played. Some of the toughest dungeons at the beginning are single-player only, so you can barely play with a friend. Their approach at trying to make it like a single-player game was the worst decision they could have made. It just turned out to be a boring single-player game with the option of having friends grind through boring quests with you. It's really too bad, because the graphics and sound were really good for the time.

It's not getting great reviews on STEAM (mixed), not that is the be-all-end-all, but makes me hesitant to pull the trigger to drop $60 on it right now. Hopefully they'll have a free weekend trial at some point.

Sounds like most of you are having fun though!

The only games that get good reviews on Steam are indie games that look like they were made in the 80s. This thread is a bit more trustworthy.
