Back when Socom 4 was officially announced, being a die hard Socom fan of the previous titles.
My only gripe with it was they tried catering to the damn cod noobs.I feel like typing a letter to all FPS Devs and telling them to stop trying to cater to the damn noobs cuz it's ruining what we originally fell in love with their games.If that make's any sense.
My only gripe with it was that it was shite, quite a major gripe to be honest.
I don't like the whole "one-man warrior" gameplay that COD seems to cater to. I realize companies like Activision along with the others are trying to maximize profits by developing what's popular. However, I emplore Zipper to sacrifice sales for quality and authenticity.
And here I thought the author would have got the hint after the absence of Demolition in the game but it was bound to fail. The protagonist is from NATO for heaven's sake.... But I lost all faith in Zipper especially after hearing the podcasts of Seth dodging vital questions and playing ignorant to the complaints of the old fanbase (and actually some of the new as well). Ghost Recon: Future Soldier here I come...
Socom is a dead series. When two games in a row release named Socom get deemed as "not a true Socom" its time to kill the series. I bought Confrontation - What a mistake. I loved MAG, but I just couldn't support Zipper on this one.
Its not a Socom game at all. It feels more like a crappy version of Ghost Recon if anything. The gameplay isn't even the same, nothing about this game resembles Socom. Confrontation was a better game. I agree with all the authors points, but damn this article is poorly written.
This one just turned out to be a classic example of bad management. When a company doesn't listen to its customer things always go bad. It tends to happen a lot to idiots who choose to listen to experts instead of the actual people who are buying the product. Just because pizzas are selling good this year doesnt mean that burger king is gonna stop making burgers right? Zipper should be ashamed.
