X360 Mag: Some people love character creation suites. They spend hours in them, tinkering, changing, creating. They are also wrong.
Create a Character is there for people to create their own version of how a character should look like. Some people just love dress up games and love creating loads of characters which I find annoying! Soul Calibur 3 & 4 that allowed create a character, you just see people create the same character from SC3 in SC 4. What is the point seriously? They don't even fight in the game but create characters. yet again, they make the same game character from SC4 in MK8. >:/
Neogaf and plenty other forums had thousands of page with people displaying their creations for soul calibur 4 .
Jews don't have creativity? Wasn't Sammy Davis Jr. a Jew? *wink*
SC4 sucked, soul calibur 2 is godly.
godly?? .. i'll forgive the unbalance of SOUL 2 and play soul 3 , thanks
um i didnt even like sc series till part 3.....u know why? for some reason i cud play with any character once i customized them myself. i hate most of the regular designs and sc2 and previous entrys were too slow
I love creating characters, it adds my own personality to the game which makes it richer
I agree with you. To me, create a character, gives games longevity especially if you can unlock new items, or tweak their skills. Create a character is for creative people.
"If they have to design their own character, you blew it." This guy needs to go work for Apple. No offense to those with macs. SMFH I happen to enjoy adding my own touch to my characters.
cba to read obviously whiney article.
That's right. Since this one guy doesn't like creating characters, no one can like it, and it doesn't belong in any game this guy chooses to purchase. He was forced to create a charcter -- he couldn't just push the "I'm done" button, I guess. Oh the agony of it all. ...has the world truly become this self-centric? This blind to the wants and needs of others, that this is valid journalism?
"...has the world truly become this self-centric?" yes. yes it has. I guess this guy never uses the presets huh. Maybe hes just ashamed of a secret love of dolls and playing dress up so anything that comes close triggers an inherit homophobia or manly defense mechanism. Who knows. Whiny bitch all the same.
How can you be "wrong" for enjoying something about a game? I don't like spending time on customization either, but that's the stupidest thing I've read all day.
I don't like making my own character (or levels) because they never turn out how I want them to turn out. My characters end up looking weird and I would rather play as a character that someone else put the time into making look good.
i can spend hours creating a character
Some games need a preset main character, because they're story-based and you're playing out this character's tale. But other games, on the other hand, give you more freedom to play out the story how you like, in which case it makes a lot more sense to allow you to customize the main character how you like, since he's your avatar in the world where you do what you want. Depends on what the devs want: do they want you to play the character's story, or yours?
With most of your statement except the beginning. I vehemently disagree that a person not be allowed to speak their opinion; even if that opinion makes no sense or is contrary to logical thinking. Sapient beings should have the right to freedom of opinion. However, pushing that aside, I found your comment bubble worthy.
Sure, everyone should be allowed to voice their opinion. My point was that his opinion shouldn't be FEATURED on a video games journalism website because it reeks of ignorance. Show me Jaffe's or Kojima's opinions anyday. Guys like him? No. Guess I should have made that clear.
I think, as long as the game allows him to be as uncreative as he wants, then that should diminish his creataphobia.
Considering the absolutely pathetic, uninspired, derivative Top 10 lists Now Gamer writes on a daily basis, I would totally have to agree. Creativity clearly isn't your forte.
Ask Nadeo. They seemed to of done pretty well with Trackmania, arguably the first big user generated game out there. Still growing. Did I mention I love Trackmania?
Sounds like the same kind of gamer, that will be stumped if the game requires him to do more than button mash or not go into a situation guns blazing, and actually have to think. I fall into the 30 minutes+ category of tweaking and altering a created character i made, till i'll even start the game, if the customization options are that deep.
Some people love writing meaningless wordflap articles about gaming. They think they are being clever and insightful. They are also wrong.
