While I completely agree with you on Uncharted 4, I have to disagree about the amount it's happening elsewhere (gaming wise).
Where are the non white bad guys? Plenty of CoD games have them, or if they aren't non whites, they're still foreign, which ties into racism a bit. I can probably find more if I look. Far Cry 3 had the hispanic fellow (amazing actor btw), even though he wasnt the top dawg, he was advertised as the main baddy.
Lets assume that was true (it's not, for the majority of games at least), but lets just assume for a moment that it was: would it really matter?
It's been admitted by a few devs that some characters might have been non whites/females but the publishers made them go with white protagonists instead, due to the fact that it's mostly white males who are the ones buying the game.
Is that a better reason to make a character, a white guy being white...
While I do own an xbox one, I have maybe 5-7 games for it.
I also own a ps4, and have probably 20 or 30 something for it. Exclusives have either sucked or have been a disappointment in comparison to their previous entries.
Bloodborne has been the only exclusive I played that didn't disappoint me. Infamous second son was good, but falls very short of 1 and 2. Uncharted 4 is like 80% climbing sim, 20% third person shooter, not to mention having the stor...
Multiplats maybe. This gen has beeen a disappointment exclusive wise, save for bloodborne.
I thought I wanted boots on the ground cod as well...until I went back to modern warfare remastered. Not as good or as fun as I remember, although I think it's because they're using inferior net code than the original, so that could be part of the reason.
I actually have moved on from blops 3 to titanfall 2 though, and haven't gone back. Tf2 is the next evolution of the shooter genre imo, and is amazing. I wish I had the desire to go back to blops, since I bough...
Not the same thing. Infinite Warfare is very noticeably worse. Controls aren't as fluid, the graphics and color variety are inferior, the maps aren't as good.
Havent gotten around to the campaign yet (which I hear is good) as I'm waiting on my pro before playing it, but otherwise, it's simply not as good as blops 3. And blops 3 for me was one of the first cods I've liked since black ops 1 (or mw2, whichever came later).
UC4 was the first Uncharted game I didn't like. I agree with it being on this list.
The pacing is horrible in my opinion, the game is like 70% climbing simulator, 30% combat. And the story feels forced and unnecessary. A brother pulled out of thin air, no previous mention of him, not even subtle hints. It's clear that they came up with the brother angle out of thin air.
Oh, and the fact that the ending was altered for the sole purpose of attemptin...
Says the person crying over different colored virtual shirts and flags...
Marty sucks. Crazy sjw who compared people who were downvoting the ghostbusters trailer to nazis. He, along with the numerous other sjw trash that inhabit ign are the reason I stopped going to that site.
Controls that aren't clunky.
Mads f*cking MIKKELSON
I didn't have too much interest in the game before, as I'm not into horror games, but seeing an incredibly talented name like Mads Mikkelson, star of the amazing hannibal tv show, I'm interested now.
I mean Norman Reedus is cool, but he's no Mads Mikkelson.
...so like every other game then...
"There is nothing more entitled than being upset because someone else isn't left out. "
Great quote, although I'd also personally say "pathetic" rather than entitled, but that's just what I'd put.
Get ready though, a bunch of angry homophobes are probably about to try and defend their homophobia by rebranding it as "politics don't belong in games" or "what does lgbt have to do with soccer" or &qu...
When your online bill jumps up by 10 bucks for no apparent reason, you're entitled to better services/quality. You are allowed to be entitled to shit YOU PAY FOR.
Honestly I don't need AAAs every month. It would be nice if they were given every other month though.
No, what I want, are non-indie games. No freaking top down shooters/hackandslash, no more 2d sidescrolling clone garbage, no more snes/nes wannabe games, and no more 15 minute 3d non ga...
Yep, same reason I haven't even looked at a review for it, despite enjoying the first.
Has little to do with what they're wearing and everything with their attitude and tone. Deslin from infamous second son LOOKED like a total hipster before the game came out, but acted like a totally normal guy excited about having powers. I enjoyed that game despite the hipster clothing.
I cringed every time emote mask asshole showed up in the gameplay vide...
What changed from the beta specifically? I only played a few matches and don't remember much.
The Last of Us was successful not necessarily because of how good it was, but because it basically got free advertising from the entire industry, free praise, as Naughty Dog consumers are similar to those of Blizzard. To me, it's an anomaly why Naughty dog are so loved for the uncharted franchise when in my opinion, many more games deserve the praise it's getting, but I've just chalked that up to personal opinion.
And don't forget, The Last of Us was releas...
"how about actually making a compelling game? "
Someone called you out on having not even played this game. If true, your entire opinion is invalid and you should probably keep your uninformed opinion to yourself as you have literally no room to say if the game is compelling or not. NONE. Critical reception is incredibly positive, people are saying nothing but good things about the multiplayer AND campaign. As far as being able to measure whether something is comp...
Because a large percentage of people buy games because they're the new and shiny thing of the moment.
I keep seeing your arguments against this game and they simply don't hold up.
Your argument being: "if it's so good,it'll sell well no matter what". Shit unfortunately doesn't work that way in the real world. Launch window sales are incredibly important to a game.
It has little to do with appeal or fun, ...
I bought my copy about 4 or 5 days ago, full price, digitally on the psn store. After hearing such amazing things about it, I simply couldn't wait any longer for the chance that it "might" go on sale on psn (I've made a rule for myself from now on, moving forward, I'm purchasing all my multiplayer shooters digitally) and went ahead and pulled the trigger.
I don't regret it. I support Respawn in their time of need (caused by EA).
