Why You Should Care About Rage

1UP - Rage is set for release this coming Tuesday. So why should you care? It's just another generic sci-fi shooter staring a bald dude from the studio whose last game was an edutainment title about the necessity of duct tape, right? Not quite.

Been dealing with gaming trolls since 1997

It's an article trying to convince people to care. I gave it a swing, and guess what? Half of his reasons are the 'brand name' behind the game. The others are "Console Parity" (WUT?) and "Focus on speed"

Not everyone coming into this article has to verbally hump the game.....His "deal with it comment" was pretty goofy, though.

cliffbo1671d ago

he is allowed his opinion even if he does not care about it.

me personnelly thinks it looks good but not everyone likes the same things as everyone else does.

SilentNegotiator1671d ago (Edited 1671d ago )

I don't care either.
And the author's dumb reasons (brand name, brand name, Console parity, and speed) do not change that.

It may look pretty, but I've seen plenty of gameplay videos; the gameplay is generic, the AI is dull, the "open world" is mainly corridors made of the environment's sand structures leading from point A to point B, and John Goodman is in it (lol).

Guaranteed to be one of the most over-rated of the year, thanks to its looks, developer brand name, and lots of marketing dollars.

I'll GameFly it. No need to waste my money on an unproven game.

I'm not saying the game is good or not as I have yet to play but id is a proven company... they invented the genre

specialguest1671d ago (Edited 1671d ago )

Nothing wrong with GameFlying it, since we don't know much bout the game.

pr0digyZA1671d ago

just wait till the scores start coming out, and then the hype. Soon you will not be able to resist.

kevnb1671d ago

rage will be better than most those games.

Reaper99371670d ago

We will talk again once all the scores have been released...my friend.

Reaper99371670d ago

At the moment lets look at the Metacritic scores, shall we...

- ICO and SotC - 91
- Dark Souk - 89

- Rage - 80/81 [Xbox/PS3]

Dude I've been gamer for a very long time, I kind of know what will be the games to get immediately or what games will be better picked up in the bargain bin, Rage is the latter.

I'm kind of surprised at the reactions for RAGE.A lot of people have no entrests in a game that will most likely be up for GOTY.Myself it looks promising and could be alt of fun.It reminds me so much of the mad max movies which is why I think it will be a great game with a lot to offer.I do think it's weird that there's no reviews out which is the only thing that I'm a little weiry about the game in a negative way.I will still buy it on day 1 that's for sure.I also thought maybe the reason people are turned off is that the name Bestheda is attached to it.There record isn't really up to par after Fallout new vegas and the dlc and the game Brink.Let's see if all these years of making this game pays off.I have a lot of faith in ID so let the apocalyptic world war start.

kevnb1671d ago

its because they didnt market it with a bunch of bs pre-rendered crap. A lot of gamers want an interactive movie these days.

dredgewalker1671d ago

I'll wait and see if it's worth getting. To be honest I was a little disappointed with Doom 3 and Quake 4 even if they were good games. I'm actually spoiled after playing Stalker games.
