Are you listing games you don't like, or just the ones you didn't play? Because this is a list of good or interesting games, that many missed.
I personally have been seeing more hate towards it than praise, not by gaming media, but by gamers. I didn't put this together to rage on fanboys though, I wanted to discuss my thoughts on the game, & express my opinion that people should keep an open mind.
I'm guessing you didn't actually read the blog. If you had, you'd see I wasn't saying they were zombies, & I was only suggesting that this "could be" a natural evolution of the survival horror genre. The whole point of my blog here was to have people keep an open mind, & that's exactly what you're not doing.
Good, you get it. And with a healthy dose of sarcasm.
Well that didn't keep a shit-load of people from saying, "Its just another zombie game!" sorry for pointing out what many seemed to miss.
Looks like I was right about the fungus. Excerpt from my blog. "They aren't exactly zombies. No name for them has been announced, but my guess? All of this is purely speculative, but since these creatures are the result of a deadly fungus, we can expect a name based off that of the fungi. It will probably be an evolved form of a parasitic fungi of the genus Cordyceps, which manipulate the behavior of their host."
I'm interested to see how that one turns out.
I meant to put quotations around the word zombies. I should have added here what I've said elsewhere. They aren't exactly zombies. No name for them has been announced, but my guess? Since these creatures are a result of a deadly fungus, we can expect a name based off that of the fungi. It will probably be an evolved form of a parasitic fungi of the genus Cordyceps, which manipulate the behavior of their host. I have said quite a bit about my thoughts on The L...
I'm not sure it's the overuse, so much as the fact that most zombie games have no real emotional substance to make the horror hold any meaning. But from what I've seen of Naughty dog's new game, it looks like that won't be a problem for The Last of Us.
With no real emotional substance to make the horror hold any meaning, I can see why people are getting tired of zombies. Though I can't help but feel like people are being shortsighted, & stubborn about this. I have yet to see the full potential of what a pandemic like a zombie apocalypse can provide for gaming. But from what I've seen of Naughty Dog's new game, it's already exploring some of the elements I've longed to see explored ...
God, I certainly hope no crazed Silent Hill fan kidnapped Heather.
Nobody want's to cause an uproar in the media, & with good reason. There aren't enough intelligent people backing the video game industry for a media backlash to happen too often. This exact same media discrimination has happened before with other forms of entertainment over the years. Just look back at the music industry, or comic books. Both recent examples of the very same media phenomena. Sure they may be accepted by the media now, but they weren't always. Do...
Okay, I just thought you were complaining about the pixelation because you wanted to see in game tits.
It's supposed to be funny. I don't think the point was for players to jack off while playing. So yeah, pixelated naughty bits.
No, seriously. I'd understand if they were releasing the original Stuntman as a PS2 Classic, but Stuntman Ignition? It makes no sense! Yes it was on PS2, but it was also on PS3/360.
Why not just put the PS3 version of Stuntman Ignition on the store?
@NathanExplosion Rubbed off on her? Hey, don't be dirty!
Make it happen Sega!
