Advocate, if seen posts saying exactly the same fucking things about Rome. I remember how people were up in arms about the time period (booohooo, I never understood that complaint. I hope they continue to come up with a new one at least every second game) about bugs, the AI, performance, complexity, hard to mod, yadda yadda yadda.
The amount of whining is staggering. And it repeats itself for every single fucking game.
Yeah, the game's gonna be full of bugs, the AIs gonna be mediocre and the forums are full of people up in arms because it's not fucking Medieval3.
You know what? Medieval 1 had bugs, bugs, bugs, the AI became only acceptable with medmod, people hated the lack of Shoguns simplicity and, you know what, they were up in arms because it wasn't set in fscking Japan. And attention to detail? The first one had battlefield ninjas!
I grant you the difficulty of modding (otoh they promised mod-tools for every game and never delivered. Call it new found honesty) but otherwise your whole post is the ridiculous whining that plagues PC gaming.
