Those games may or may not be of any quality when released;
I'm sorry, but that seems like such a non-argument to me; it something you can say of any and all games, comnsole, pc or board.
As for Spore being developed by EA...it's the developers, as Balmer would say; can they code, as that'll decide if the game is craptastic or not. Coming from the demoscene, you can bet your ass that the guys Wright has collected around him can code.
but there are only a handful of PC titles released each year that really catch my interest anymore.
You know, that's interesting. I visited an aqcuaintence a few months back. He had a modded xbox1 with a huge harddrive. On it he had all these games....and only about 5 to ten good ones.
That's five to ten cool games over the lifespan of the thing. That's
what he paid his $500-$1000 bucks for (sure, the thing costs $100 or so now...not then though). That just struck me as an awefully low ROI. Sure, it's xbox and not ps2....and I have some odd tastes...but I know there have been many more cool pc games out in that same timespan. And I'm not a total pc fanboy....snes, megadrive, gameboy and I am so getting a Revolution. It just strikes me that in hindsight consoles have few really great games when looked over the lifetime of a system.This comment was edited on Jul 13, 08:28.
