* any lamer who thinks he's clever by cracking the "joke" that I'd be the first to go, puuuuhhhlease... predictable dumbass "joke" is predictable dumbass "joke", capisce?
I don't know about saying to euthanize yourself first would be the joke, I mean, after-all, everything you've posted has already proven you to be the most apt at being an actual joke that no one really needs to make one about you.
It's 2017, are we still using "lamer"?

The negativity is very often confirmed, especially from us old school gamers, we would love to see games become more complex instead of getting dumbed down.
As much as I enjoy a deeply intricate game with deeply intricate systems, we are a slowly dying breed of a time past. I don't fault any company for maximizing their income by following market trends...nor do I fault consumers for purchasing things they want as long as it is within their means to do so legally.
In other words, progress is going to happen even if you don't agree with it or even see it as 'progress'.
There are enough people who want something like that, and believe it or not, the average console gamer isnt too stupid to play complexer games. Yet we dont want games where you have to deal with every little thing. Just things that challenge us more.
Progress is subjective. But there are occasions when it isnt. Following your logic we could be playing Pacman 236251, because its so popular.
Progress for most big developers is better graphics. No innovation. New genres actually are made by tiny devs, but more likely by players who mod an existing game. Oh wait, but these awesome progressive console ports cant even be modded...
I have given up on waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.
