You sound like a nutter to me. If FO3 caused you 'mental torture'', make sure you avoid any game made after 1991, leaving the house, or talking to people. Basically doing anything.

Protip: it was a humorous exaggeration.

When Blizzard started using WoW art style in all their games, they became homogenous in more than just appearances.

Starcraft 2 (2010) was the last game before the decline. After that, it's all been downhill.

Welcome to MMO remodeled into FPS as a hail mary. Much excite. So WoW.

I do deserve a refund when I paid for entertainment and got mental torture instead.

The Aliens: CM and Fallout 3 were the most depressing gaming purchases I ever made (not in a good way).

F3 was mediocre, but not loathsome

I played the game some (what I could stomach, for science), and went through complete LPs of other people.

The only achievement this game has, is that it does not format your hard drive.

I could present screenshot evidence of just how horrifying the dialogue and world-building is, literally written by some programmer on a napkin, ALL OF IT, but frankly I shouldn't have to prove the obvious.

The game is super-linear, devoid of choices or world reactivity, because Bethesda confuses non-linearity with "ability to walk places".

The only thing that doesn't 100% suck about this game, is the setting it was inspired by, which is taken from the original Fallout, which remains a true classic.

That moment when you leave the Vault, with the sun affecting your vision, was equally if not more powerful in Fallout1, even if it only described it through a dungeon master textbox.

I don't know. Terrible engine? Terrible UI? Terrible writing, with dialogue obviously written by programmers, in a way that no living thing ever speaks?

Terrible world design? Terrible combat? Terrible story? Lack of non-linearity? Nuclear exploding cars? People in the middle of nuclear detonation instantly becoming ghosts? Non-reactive, non-consequential player stats? (unlike FO:NV)

Long, unskippable vault sequence?

Horrific animations and models? Loading screens upon entering every tiny hut? Trash items everywhere?

Graphics piss-filter?

Retardation in every possible crevice of this terrible product?

This just off the top of my head. There's more.

I want my fucking money back. This is the one game where I feel very strongly about that.

Well that and Fallout 3.

Not playing KF2 until they stop monsters from blatantly teleporting behind your back. Not only does the player move like a turtle, they STILL can't make this mechanic work gracefully, while L4D solved this 7 years ago.

Somehow the arrogance even seeps into the patch notes.

On Desura, you can just PUBLISH, and let the rest sort itself out.

On Steam, you first have to get through Greenlight, which is a huge obstacle and has been critically deemed a failed concept.

Desura is a very nice launching pad and preparation for "bigger leagues" like Steam. It's much MORE indie-friendly than Steam ever was, and also the publishing process is easier.

You can't "fix" cheating. There will always be someone hacking in to the code on these games and making profit from it. Cheating is not a bug to be fixed, it's a choice. If you choose to rob a store you get put in jail, if you choose to cheat in a online game you get banned. That's they way it should be. You rob me of my hard earned money by taking away my enjoyment of my game so they should take your money by kicking your ass to the curb.
I would rather see new features in games then have the dev chase hackers with there time and money.

Yes you can "fix" cheating, at least on game mechanics level, through strict client-server protocol which has to validate every action by the client, trusting it with NOTHING.

On user's computer level - aimbots and such may always be there, but you can minimize their effectiveness by allowing a depth of mechanics which lets players run circles around them.

That's why in Quake Wars, for instance, aimbotters never brought down a game. Not only because bullets had physical properties (no hitscan garbage), but because so many mechanics were available to frustrate them, especially if people gang up on them.

Chances of Warcraft movie writing being as entertaining as that of a random questgiver in WoW - 95%.

News Comments > DOOM Reveal at E3
77. Re: DOOM Reveal at E3 May 19, 2015, 16:01 shiho
 
I really don't get the Wolfenstein hype. I'm somewhere 40% through New Order (will probably never finish), and it's just Call of Duty with all the Call of Duty gimmicks, but health doesn't regenerate. OMG SO OLD SCHOOL AMIRITE.

It's still the same old new shit, where you shoot gray enemies in front of gray walls, and level design doesn't play the same big role as it played in shooters of the past.

Not only the gray-on-gray irritates the crap out of my eyes, but weapons also don't feel as distinct as they did in either Wolf3D or Doom, and the game is chock-full of retarded scripted sequences during some of which you just press ONE KEY.

Wolfenstein and Doom were never about the story. The story suffocates level design and gameplay, always - something I realized way too late into my own 2D shooter project.

I truly hope Doom 4 is NOTHING like New Order.
