Whiny gamers on the internet who can't find one nice thing to say about how great we have it.

Duke Nukem Forever and Aliens Colonial Marines, no I didn't expect them to be the "greatest games ever made" but I did expect to have some degree of fun with those games. Serious Sam 3: BFE did EVERYTHING Duke Nukem Forever wished it could have been. As for Aliens, we may never see a game that does the first 2 movies justice.

38 Studios because I loved Kingdoms Of Amalur, it's my longest played game on Steam. But the publisher other key figures on the business end just had no idea what they were doing. Their logic was that just making a big budget AAA game would magically grant them 50 times their budget and outsell Call Of Duty because it's a game. They were so caught up on this idea that they borrowed an astronomical amount of money to start a MMORPG spinoff based on the new IP before it was released. The game ended up being rejected by the gaming masses and everyone on the project suffered because of it. Even if somebody does buy up the KOA IP in auction, the guys who made the game are working for other companies and most gamers are too jaded to give a sequel a chance.



Oh give me a break, a Game hipster? You only like those games because it would be ironic to do so.

Go rub your weewee on your iphone you bundle of sticks.

The crappy console ports of crappy first person shooters. We need more originality, more strategy and RPG style games.

I was playing Hidden & Dangerous 2 last night with my bros and we were wondering why the hell they just don't make games like that anymore. Instead they turn them into these PvP based fast shooters. Don't we have enough PvP shooters!?

Give me some games that require some brain power for a change! I miss those. DEPTH please!!!

Ninja Gaiden 3.


Cracked a smile at this, I was hoping to see this mentioned. +1


are the ninja gaiden sigma games any good ??


Yeah, they're great. We wouldn't be so disappointed with 3 if 1 and 2 weren't great. Black/Sigma is one of my favorite games ever, and Sigma 2 is an overall improvement on 1 until you get to Master Ninja Mode.


oh is ninja gaiden sigma a remake of black? i didnt know that or were u just sayin black and sigma both were good sorry about the confusion ty :)

If you think shooters don't require brain power you're doing it wrong.
