TSA: "The Next-Gen future may bring photorealistic, motion captured Hollywood stars to the world of video games but unless there is an innovative and exciting game after the cutscene, what is the point?"
I read the title and say to myself, this got to be a opinion piece.
That's your opinion.
No its a Fact. Not an opinion. It is a opinion piece.
Do you have evidence? Otherwise I'll have to assume that is your opinion.
This has "Top story on main page" wrote all over it.
It also has "I won't bother reading this garbage and down voted too" written all over it.
It's not garbage, it's about how unnecessary and annoying tutorials are, and how developers think of the players as stupid and in need of a hand to hold. It's the sad part of modern gaming.
Just wow. This is proof that no one bothers reading the article based on headline alone. The author is not calling you stupid. It's taking the implication that because most modern mainstream games start you off with redundant tutorials and provide you excessive with hand-holding, that it seems like developers are treating gamers like they're stupid. The quality of TSA articles are great, and they are some of the true journalists of the industry that we can call journalists. Maybe some people missed the British sensibilities.
"This is proof that no one bothers reading the article based on headline alone." And why would I read an article that starts off by insulting me? "You're an asshole. Read my valid points about game tutorials." Well, no. I don't care if you have a valid point if you start off with an insult. Who does that? What I am going to do is give this a down-vote without reading it. But that's what you should expect when the first thing you do is insult your audience.
i bit. was dissapoint. also, to the author: demons/dark souls says, "hi."
Ha beat me to it. No hand holding in those games. It took me a few hours before i figurex out how to apply resin to my sword lol
you've found one exception. congrats
Somebody doesn't know how to spell congratulations..... :/
In the immortal words of Terrence and Philip - ''Hey $£%^ you buddy!!!''
I'm not your buddy pal!
Please, please, for anyone/anything sake, just stop posting opinions shit. Why would I be interested in reading an opinion instead of news? this shit is getting out of hand.
95% of gaming "news" today is opinion pieces. I know the statistic is accurate because I made it up like 99% of all statistics are.
Just another rant on the perceived lack of interactivity in today's video games. At the end of the day, it doesn't matter in the least what particular category a piece of entertainment falls under. Whether people love a game for it's cutscene-heavy storyline or it's engaging gameplay, it is successful if the experience is enjoyable. Really wish I could get my click back, to be honest. I sort of assumed that with a title like that, the actual article would not be what I thought, but it was: just another gamer trying to tell other gamers what they should be enjoying.
I don't always downvote, but when I do, the headline is literally insulting me.
That's the point, it's in the same way many games insult your intellect. Which is what the article is about.
Yeah, except games don't explicitly call me an idiot on the start screen...
The author could have used a better headline. This one just puts people on the defensive. Whether the article is good or not doesn't matter if you put up a barrier before entry, people will already have their opinion formed before the page loads.
A little touchy are we?
I consider myself a pretty smart person, thank you very much! however, i did sell farcry 3 and dishonored because i actually thought they were boring.
i agree with the article 100%. I'd rather be treated like a gamer.
Maybe you should start by acting like a gamer. If a 5 10 min tutorial is going to help another gamer understand and enjoy the game how is that insulting for you? Hopefully they make such things optional. I just don't understand people who are impressed with themselves becuase they figure out something that should be explained to newcomers. If such small feats stroke your ego you people need to get more out of the real world, it's much more satisfying.
lol, people not even getting past the headline before closing their minds to the point of the article.
Games should always have an option to skip the tutorial, when a friend of mine was introduced to gaming like 7 years ago he couldn't figure out the controllers because he had never played games, so yeah tutorials are always a good thing since there WILL be newcomers, just add an SKIP TUTORIAL option.
cant remember the last game that had a horrible tutorial that I really wanted to skip.
Looks like the usual sloppy moron chow from an irrelevant site trying to pass for edgy. Didn't read. Voted site down.
Hmmmm. Should I even bother reading an article that called me stupid?
