While the criticisms against the game are mostly legitimate... Who the **** cares if the story is about a lesbian? Like you all get offended about the "LGBT agenda." Big deal.


It's not that the story was about a lesbian, it wasn't much of a ****ing story that bothered me. Reviews made this sound like a game you must play and a game that will be memorable but I can't imagine even remembering this game a year from now.

It took me about an hour and a half to beat it and I pretty much searched most areas I could think of. I could of used that hour and a half to put towards Skyrim.


And then you could have used that hour and a half to put towards a good game like Morrowind


Do you have anything better to do?

No, seriously; do you ever leave the house? Because I see you in 95% of threads here.


You should leave the house and go to math school.

And what is this 1986? You have to be sitting a desk in an underground bunker to use the internet? Wow brah, really need to go outside more, get up to date.

Is this your job? And I'm married, by the way.


You just searched every topic for posts by a particular user. Do you ever leave your house? Is this your job?

Yeah I'm really confused on why the professional reviews are all so damn high.

I mean I could see them being around just for the game being a somewhat unique style, but 9-10? Come on...

The style of story telling isn't really all that unique either. It's just Bioshock with all the gameplay stripped out of it.

I don't get why people whine so much about the length of a game. It's the experience that matters. If you didn't like the game then would it be better if it was 100 hours of a game you don't like?


I think you're missing the point, it's about the price per hour for entertainment. If I can get similar or better quality entertainment while on a budget for less $/hour, why would I bother with this game? Similar to how if I am comparing and internally debating between two great $60 games and one has 10 hours of content while the other has 50, I'm clearly going to go with the 50 hour game if I can only have one.

Yeah, reading notes in an interactive medium is not the best way to tell a story.

This is hardly the biggest deceit in PC gaming. The two DOS-based main series Elder Scrolls games deserve that title far more, given that Arena was utter hell to try to conplete without gamebreaking bs killing your save file dead, and Daggerfall was uncompletable for a long time, until a patch came out that fixed that (and even then, you could still hit no-win scenarios due to gamebreaking bugs...'twas so bad that the devs added an option to enable the debugging cheat keys for the average person to let them retain their sanity after hours of searching for the seemingly missing quest objective). I'm sure there's even more deceitful titles in the PC gaming world, but I can't recall any off the top of my head.

teenage lesbians and street fighter

Which goes to my next question.. If a girl plays street fighter, does that make her a lesbian?

I do have to say it is strange that a game about fighting the patriarch is getting praised by reviewers in a male dominated hobby.

I think it might be a scheme to get more girl gamers.
