Ha, Diablo 3 a failure? Whatever.

It was massive at release. It received a ton of backlash and Blizzard fixed many of those issues. I went back to it earlier this year, picked up the expansion later and I think it's great.

I don't even know what the other games are but what's the point in looking? All credibility is lost after that joke of a number 1. #7
It's just a basic isometric shooter. We've seen these before, hell, we've seen THIS game before in the form of Postal.

It exists. That's it. Don't buy it and move on. So many games are based and sold on its depiction of violence and yet people are calling this a crime against humanity. Whether this game is released or not, there will still be violence in the world, there will still be school shootings and wars and other such things happening. #11
Chivalry. Play a duel, have a good fight then BAM, they slip a feint in that throws you off and they kill you. I've broken several tables because of this #20
I thought the threats were of a sexual nature and do not at all mention gaming. Anita is a culture critic and has looked over a lot of pop culture before turning to computer games (something she admits she wasn't a big fan of to begin with!)

But is it fair to suddenly dump this on us 'gamers'? Suddenly I'm made to feel guilty because I played Mario - a game that used to damsel in distress trope even though I'm pretty sure Nintendo weren't making it, ru... #2

Gaming can go beyond simply telling a story like you would see in a book, film, or a TV show. The Last of Us told a fantastic story but was pretty traditional with gameplay. The key factor was the writing and characterization was SUPERB.

Taking true advanatge of a computer game story is to let the world tell the story. Interactive storytelling. Not pulling the camera from the player to show a cutscene. I think games like SotC, the Souls series and Half Life 2 achieved this we... #8

This is going to be like my wait for Dark Souls. Looking at that game, waiting for it's release was almost too much. Then it landed and I loved it, loved the whole thing almost as much as I loved Demon's Souls.

This game will be my reason to buy a PS4, pure and simple. Some games are a 'maybe' but when I saw this game announced, I knew next year I would be buying one. #14

There are so many games they missed. Also, is it fair to put in a game AND a sequel? Like Torchlight - Torchlight 2 and Dark Souls - Dark Souls 2. That seems a little unfair really...

But yeah, you missed out The Witcher, The Witcher 2 deserving a spot somewhere as does Path of Exile for simply being a fantastic F2P RPG that isn't P2W. #5

It's hard to sum up this generation in a top 5. #4

Sadly PC gamers have sometime to go before we see this on PC.

Don't get me wrong, I really want this on PC but you have to look at it from Rockstar's point of view. The current ad campaign for GTA V is 'buy it now Xbox 360 this Christmas' whereas at release it was mostly 'buy it now on PS3'. They're going to grab the last of those high sales for Christmas on the 7th generation platforms.

We are going to see a next gen port as well... #8

Arrhh it sounds really forced! I'd take a guess and say a small percentage of players actually ask this stuff whereas most of the questions they probably get refer to bugs, patches and fixes. It's almost like IW are just clapping their hands over their ears going LA-LA-LA-LA ASK US ABOUT CLASSES LA-LA-LA #2

I remember really getting into Warhawk. The learning curve was a bit steep but once you got into it, it became really addictive. If they brought a new one to PS4, it would be the first that would make me consider buying a new console. #14

This is really terrible for several reasons.

1. No one should be harassed to such a degree. It's never fun. Oh yes, sometimes I have seen these stories involving other people in the industry and found them rather entertaining, like watching a drunken fight across the street.

2. This is going to be made into an issue of gender and will bring up more equality issues throughout the industry.

Read the comments in the article and there's... #34

I follow quite a few reviewers on Twitter. After a major game release, debates obviously pop up over scores and inconsistencies about the review score when compared to the actual review.

Many, many of these reviews then go into snobbery mode and act like stuck up pretentious tools. It really bothers me. Sometime I wonder if half these reviewers actually care about a fair review or just doing a piece of writing that makes them shine better then others. It really makes the whol... #3

I think it depends on what value you put on a game. Some people put value to the amount of time they can put into the game. Some people judge it on the experience. #1.3.3

I very nearly bought this. Had it on pre-order an everything. But as the release date gets close I was looking at it and thinking £120 just wasn't worth it for me. It looks nice but the GTA IV one was much cheaper. So I cancelled and got a standard edition. #2

On 1st October you put the game in your console. Witchcraft happens and you play online. #1

With GTA IV didn't Rockstar put some reviewers in a nice hotel with everything paid for on the condition that all they can do is stay in the room and play it for like 5 days? I'd say that's sorta buying a review. Not that Rockstar needs to 'buy' reviews, especially for a GTA game, but putting someone, all expenses paid, in a hotel to review your product is swaying the reviewers opinion of the whole experience. #6.4

I'm expecting tons of disagrees here but I do agree with you. If you look at the footage Rockstar showed for GTAIV and then how it looked, you can see a huge different. This applies to Red Dead Redemption also.

There will be a noticeable difference when you see this running on the console but I'll still be buying it as it's out on nothing else yet :P #13.1

I think that's utter bollocks.

We've seen, what, 4 or 5 trailers? The reveal back in 2011, then another, the character trailers, the gameplay reveal and finally the online. I think we've seen enough to know what you're going to get without giving too much away.

It's a very solid marketing strategy, just being forward with what your product does.

However if stuff like that bothers you there is absolutely no reason to watch... #12.1

It was another mess of a situation but still offered some entertaining news.

Call it harsh, say I'm a horrible human being for getting some slight enjoyment out of it but I did. Drama an all that.

There's the link to the video that started this whole thing. Now I don't use Game Trailers regularly but it seems Marcus Beer uses this... #3
