I've owned this game, at one point or another, a total of four times over the last two decades. I bought it at release in June (July?) 2001.

Same boat. Imported it at release to europe for 125 bucks. I got my 1st CC for it. (you dont really need CCs in europe) It sounded good but was terrible done. I gave up after 1 hour

I'm curious what you thought it would be if you gave up after an hour. It never pretended to be a fast-paced game for twitch gamers. An hour is barely enough time to begin to get a taste of the game.

"Just 5 more minutes" is a way of saying "Just one more turn" and there's no way CS deserves it.

Have you ever played Counter-Strike? It's literally composed of short rounds under 5 minutes each, and it's very addicting. Tons of people who play are thinking "oh, just one more round/match/map."

I have, and I despise the game for a variety of reasons, and I've never felt anything remotely close to an urge to play again.

I fully understand that people do, but I don't, and millions hate it as much as I do. CS is a very divisive game for one that's as popular as it is.

It is interesting that, out of all of the votes, not one game older than six years ended up winning a nomination, unless they happened to be made by Valve.

In other words, every candidate that won the 'vote' was something Valve could still make money off of by extra exposure.

Well it *IS* the "Steam" Awards, so I don't see how that's terribly... interesting.

Most Awards lists have eligibility requirements.

Yeah but we're fine w/ GTA5's awards. Let's not pretend that "Whooooaaaaaaa, dude!" is a pretegious category, and GT games are CHOCK FULL of minigames, so the other award is obviously fine.

"Just 5 more minutes" is a way of saying "Just one more turn" and there's no way CS deserves it.

Some of these awards are bad. CS is obviously the worst. But most are either decent or spot on, with "Not Crying" by TWD as the best.

And yes, it's a popularity contest... and thus it's stupid... cuz gamers are stupid.

Ok am I the only one who wonders why this new galaxy - and the planet in the trailer - seems to be populated by Humans, Asari, Krogan & Turians? This is a new galaxy with a few big ships carrying refugees from the Milky Way and all the planets & stations are populated by... the above Milky Way races? Is it lazy development or am I missing something?

A quick google search reveals that the game features just a single new race native to andromeda. It's an entirely new galaxy so the only Milky Way races in the game should be the ones on the either the Arcs or your ship! Just smacks of lazy development trying to squeeze out a cash-grab. I hope I'm wrong.

No, you're absolutely correct. This is EA afterall. It's just a cheap way to reuse existing assets. Apart from the Krogran the other 3 are all the same with minor tinkering. It's not like Star Wars where they'd have to build at least several dozen different models to get some variance in the species. Yeah, it sucks huh?

I gave up on ME after 3, naturally, and I RARELY buy EA games, but...

In theory, there could have been more than 1 ship... or maybe the ship was really big. And maybe they're holding off unveiling new aliens until later (I saw some at the 1:15 mark).

But yeah, I'll give you a 94% chance of being right, just like how abusive the asset reuse was in DA2. The awesome stuff in that game was awesome. The laziness in that game was mind-numbing.

I tried to read that article and it was both confusing and pompous. AdBlock was a blessing to the Internet poisoned with ads, some of which contain exploits.

Paywalls are garbage too.

Learn to integrate ads into your content, Internet. Product placement. TV has done it, radio shows have done it. It's the only chance you have.

Except for the 70 billion or so spent on television commercials, your comment is completely true and not pompous at all!

Should have given away Black Flag or Rogue.

Three was pretty meh but Black Flag kicked major ass which is why they're not giving it away. I'd suspect they're still doing decent sales on BF and little to none on Three.

Not sure who picks the game, but BF was free as part of MS's Games With Gold.

Works for me, AC3 is the only one I never got around to playing!

Also, I read that someone dug around in the site code to find out what all the 30 Days of Ubi whatever things are, and free AC3 is listed for December 7th. So only a week to wait for that.

Other notable goodies include a first-come, first-served giveaway of 300 copies of a few "latest Ubisoft titles" on Dec. 9th, and repeats of previous monthly giveaways from the 22nd-25th: Prince of Persia, Rayman Legends, Splinter Cell, and The Crew.

AC3 is where I got burnt out on the feature creep. Tons of fun, but eventually I stopped caring. Got about 1/2-2/3 of the way through Black Flag and the same thing happened.

I dunno if it's boring or if it's truly too much of a good thing. Plus... I have medical issues which prevents me from playing as much or as often as I like... then I come back after 6 weeks of non-playing and I'm completely confused and lost. Similar thing happened the two times I tried to play Skyrim. I refuse to just barrel through an Elder Scrolls game, so I have 700 hours via two main plays and still haven't finished the game (or half the stuff).

In my opinion, if you believe everything devs tell you about a game that is far from being released, you're the one at fault. Especially for that kind of indie game... I didn't have unrealistic expectations, I didn't preorder and I harbor no ill sentiment against them. A tiny novice indie team with an AAA fan base and expectations, it's impressive they actually shipped something without complete mental breakdown. Also, a ton of other devs have done things similar to this and you almost never hear about that kind of backlash from the public. It's a bit hypocritical. I didn't buy the game yet, especially because it's way too much money for what it is, but I'll definitely check it out later when they finish it.

Massive difference between saying that they're AIMING and HOPING to include features years ahead of time and saying that they WILL include features with less than 6 months before release. I'm with you on the "more than a year" time period, but HG went way beyond that.

They'd do better just not actually saying anything. This is BS spin I expect from a Molyneux company. Not that Hello Games is much different.

Did I miss something somewhere? Game seems over priced....
How does 45 bucks for the generic edition, 60 for the edition with soundtrack and map and avatars and lil thingies, and 80 bucks for the version with all the bells and whistles including a "Digital Collector's Guide" seem overpriced?

45 bucks for the game. An extra 15 for some junk. 20 more for some other junk.

Seems pretty standard/decent.

Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

A closer analogy would be a Hillary presidency. I forgive your partisan viewpoint as you must be one of Hill's uninformed and complacent sheep.

People seem to forget that Trump and his followers are now the revolutionaries. It isn't 1968 people. Republicans, Trump, anyone who doesn't tow the liberal party line are now anarchists, counter-culture, outside the main stream. It is Hillary who must crush that dissent and have her followers inform on it.

Holy Grammar Errors, Batman!!!

I have no idea what "seems like a soak your gamers blind" means, so I'll just ignore that. What's wrong with music as separate DLC? It's called "a la carte" and it's awesome. Would you prefer to HAVE to buy the music? LOTS of people only want the game expansion without the extra, superfluous stuff like music and graphics. Besides... there's a 100% chance that the DLC will be on sale within a few months, so there's literally no reason not to buy it if you're interested in the actual expansions.

Soda is definitely bad for your health, but not nearly as bad as some other things that we tax, like cigarettes. I'm never in favor of more taxes on people, as I think most people pay enough in taxes, and a soda tax is highly regressive. It could (and probably would) also be the start of a slippery slope. First the government taxes soda for having too much sugar and high calories. Then candy, chocolate, etc. Then on to snack cakes, pies, ice cream, fast food, etc. Finally high-fat meats, sausages, bacon, etc. Why not? Soda is not the single cause of obesity in the country. Singling one unhealthy item out of hundreds of thousands isn't right, and I think once the government gets their foot in the door, the sky's the limit.

Soda is no worse for you than these supposedly healthy "juices" that have the same number of calories and similar ingredients.

You seem to be unaware that soda has literally no nutritional benefit. Fruit juices have at least a little bit of nutrition to them, as does everything on the admittedly well-laid-out slippery slope.

Unless you need empty calories, there's literally no benefit to soft drinks.

And who cares if it's regressive. It's ENTIRELY optional. As someone who drinks a lot of soft drinks, I know I'm the one and only person to blame/credit for how many soft drinks I consume.
