That is very true. The top dogs (if you will) aren't at the ground level. They don't know what managers with managers with associates are doing or how they are conducting business. It's like a neverending roller coaster of positions within a company. You have go through a lot of highs and lows before getting to the ground to see the effect. A company's initial vision can be severely compromised due to hidden agendas of other level staff. #4.1.1
Nice rant, haha. I agree with you that the PR nonsense that gets regurgitated toward consumers is ridiculous. The number of games that have multiple performance issues at launch is unacceptable. You would think some companies know better, but it's like you said that companies, "are filled with too many people".

That sentence harkens back some old memories and experiences of mine when working at a hardware store in my college days. I used to be in maintenance wit... #4
Seems to be a going trend in not only this industry, but many others as well. Still, it would be better to err on the side of caution these days what with opportunistic media outlets and venomous online crusaders seeking to further their agendas with what could be considered easy targets. #17.1
Personally, I like Resident Evil 4, but I get where you're coming from. In my opinion, Resident Evil 5 is where things started really going downhill. Resident Evil 6 was by far the worst out of the main series. And don't get me started on the atrocity that was Operation Raccoon City.

And yes, The Evil Within does have a promising start, but you start to see the problems a few chapters in. It's a shame. I was really looking forward to experiencing the horror that m... #2.1
Thanks, Nineball. I ended up buying the game for my sister because she left her job, was bored at home, and really wanted to play this. She beat it before me, but we had our own playthroughs at the same time.

I think you hit the nail on the head by saying you're "just playing it to finish it". That's how I felt about six or so chapters in. You never want to feel like that when playing a game because it starts to feel more like an obligating chore rather than... #1.1
It just seems as though that people only care about the multiplayer aspect of GTA V at this point. This is especially considering that heists have just now been finally added. Some may enjoy the main single player action, but I'm thinking that because of the new multiplayer options people will be gravitating more toward that.


"Yeah but the best version launched today."

Completely subjective and counter to what yo... #2.1.6
Oh boy. I'm going to be broke if I see something some awesome deals. And I just got paid recently. >.< #17
Perhaps quality control was a poor choice of words for my final wrap up; however, I never once mentioned my enthusiasm that Hatred made it back. Yes, I am glad Air Control was taken down, but I'm simply baffled that Day One and The Slaughtering Grounds are still up there given what has happened with those games. Honestly, I could care less about Hatred, but I have reserved my opinion on that game for a blog in the near future. #4.1

If I might chime in, I will clarify something. I also notice that some of you are at the limit with bubbles, so I will keep this brief.

The entire reason why I used both Leigh Alexander and Brianna Wu as examples in this blog is because the general consensus that I have seen floating around various circles on the internet is that SVU got this idea about the general problems through people like them. Leight's "gamers are over" rant did raise a few good points; ho... #1.3

Firstly, on topic: Yes, I believe that gender is irrelevant to a video game per the character being put in a player's control. So long as the story is good, the graphics are without problems, and the gameplay is functional, I think that no matter the gender of a playable character the game can be great.

In response to your comments:
"Her goal is to get us thinking more about our hobby."

You'll have to excuse me, but I highly disagree... #1.1.12

I can relate with that backlog and spending more time on other things than getting to the games. It's just one of those things that happens over time. Life changes and changes our time frames with our hobbies. It's all a matter of figuring out when to get gaming in your schedule. I say that you should do it when you can if you have a lot of free time. #3.1

You should totally bring your Vita to work. If you have a backlog or are working on something new you have, you have the extra time to complete it.

It's good that you and your wife have that balance with the television, but you certainly are very active. Sports, a house, a dog, and work can occupy a lot of time for sure. It's always good to have that physical activity, though. #2.1

Sounds like you have more time than I do to game, haha. And to start work any time you want Monday through Friday? That's awesome! #1.1

This opinion piece misses so much information regarding GamerGate that it's insulting. What about the NotYourShield hashtag? What about the attacks on gamers and anyone who supports GamerGate? What about the Facebook page Corruption in Video Game Journalism? What about the countless tweets made with positive and level-headed points against SJWs and the games media? Nothing to say about those? No?

That guy is off his rocker. He seriously has some issues to be acting out like that. #16

Agreed. This message is like EA's conference at E3 all over again. You need to walk the walk, BioWare. #1.5

It really is a great system. It had a slow start, granted, but I think at this point getting a Wii U is a smart investment. This year alone saw some great exclusives released. It shows what with a lot of those games getting on Top 10 Best lists.

I just recently played "Tank! Tank! Tank!" and I was having a blast with that game. It's on my list of games to get for sure. I just hope that 2015 will be a better year for video games as this year seemed rather lacklus... #3.1

That doesn't make any sense. How in the hell can you sit there and declare that every game that doesn't make 60 frames per second is broken? Correct me if I'm wrong, but broken games would have to have more graphical problems beyond the number of frames it clocks in at. Controls, bugs, glitches, gameplay, and graphics all play into a game's performance. Then it would have to be seen and experienced if it's broken or not. #1.3

Haha! Those are pretty creative holiday greetings. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, N4G! :D #16

I would say I partially instill some of my mentality when playing a character about half the time I play games. It depends on the kind of game it is, though. It's easier for me to do that when it's open world/RPG. The rest lies on me taking the role of a silent protagonist.

In games where you create a character from scratch and are given many paths to choose, I often seek to improve my character via their skills, inventory, and reputation. That pretty much covers game... #6
