So sick of FPS elitists

#1FenriswolfPosted 10/1/2013 4:57:56 PM
This year saw some remakes of old-school FPS properties like Shadow Warrior and Rise of the Triad. While I enjoyed these games, I'm really annoyed by the elitist community attached to these games, acting as if they're better than everyone else just because they knew how to rocket jump back in the old days or whatever. Furthermore, these people try to dismiss legitimate criticisms against these games, like bugs, lack of optimization, low budget etc, while telling anyone who criticizes these games to "go back to COD". There's nothing wrong with having gaming and narrative features evolve with technology, and since when is it wrong to enjoy COD and prefer to have proper storytelling in games again?

Hilariously CoD takes as much skill as arena shooters.

It's human nature to think that things one likes are objectively better than everything else. And that's why humans suck.

Conclusion: not give a s@#& what people think because the overwhelming majority of people are idiots. Incidentally, "elitists" are typically among the least insightful and warrant being ignored especially so.

Objectively untrue, CoD has various mechanics which exist for the sole purpose of compressing the skill gap. I'm not saying that you're wrong for liking it, or that CoD is a bad game, but the fact is that CoD is just plain easier to be good at.

I think you're the kind of person that TC doesn't like.
