I swear, EVERY time a Ubisoft game is revealed people go "OMG, it's gonna be amazing, GOTY, etc, etc!"
THEN, a couple of months before release, you find something wrong with the game and declare it a disaster.
THEN, people blame Ubisoft for seemingly overhyping the game, when in reality, Ubisoft was just doing their job and promoting the game like EVERY company does! Nintendo, EA, Sony, Microsoft, Activision, Bungie; they ALL release trailers to promote their game. It's YOUR fault for assuming that the game is going to be this phenomenal work of art. They're just normal, GOOD, triple AAA games. They are NOT all 10/10's, so stop getting overwhelmingly upset when you realize this!
EVERY SINGLE GAME that's been overhyped, then dismissed as a flop, has been good and even well received by the gaming community. Watch Dogs, Assassins Creed 3, and yes, I'm 99% sure this will happen with the Division.
Watch Dogs and Assassins Creed 3 are both good games. Two of my favorites. I enjoyed them both immensely. And yet AC3 was dismissed for glitches (Which personally I found funny. It was rare that they affected my mission, and it made for more side missions to track them down.) Assassins Creed 3 was a fun game, but I'll admit glitches are somewhat a good reason to boycott a game, depending on what the glitch does.
But Watch Dogs was dismissed by pessimists because of a graphical downgrade.... come here, I'm gonna tell you a secret. Come closer.... a little closer.....
WATCH DOGS LOOKS FINE!
It wasn't a graphical downgrade! You could tell even before E3 that the footage shown was ran off of a high end PC, and videos shown a month before release on a high end PC looked similar to that of the tech demo. And even if it WAS downgraded, it looks pretty good. It was pleasant to look at, and certainly better than a lot of next-gen exclusives. (But more on that in a later blog.)
So here we are with two well received, very fun games that YOU players boycotted because you expected more, and then blame Ubisoft when it' s YOUR fault. Granted, Ubisoft has been responsible at times, like with Far Cry 3, but you people have done this with Ubisoft games before, and I BEG you to please; PLEASE not do this with Assassins Creed Unity, Rainbow 6, and the Division.
