Make sure to check out my new article "Why I hate a game that's not out yet" lol as stupid as it sounds, just looking at this topic it's a common theme in the PS3 boards. I'm not sure but I think this is the same guy that said Uncharted proves that NG is not as profitable and is selling less when each game was selling more. Maybe I have him confused for another tool, I'm not sure... :( --- Bayern Munich is the strongest club in the world PSN: eaglespirit
I'm not here to lie, so I'm not going to say that that article was not written well. The problem it gives to someone looking forward to tLoU (self included) is that it tries to package the games commercialized narrative to convince people to expect another cliché setting. Through exaggeration and personal view, the author is convincing in telling you just how the game will churn out. It even goes so far as to argue against the mysterious elements this game might have! You can't win, so I'm really not going to be happy if the writer is right about the gameplay. It also makes penetrating assumptions about character of the potential consumer of ND's latest while admitting the narrative will be frought with clichéd binary choices in regard to morality. Even if the game turns out to be disappointing for a suprising amount of people, at least its attempting to innovate the gaming experience, so where is the fault? Maybe the story will take a little too much from what is used in hollywood script, but how realistic can it get before turning people away, and how technologically advanced would we need to be to make it realistic and set a higher standard for gaming as a whole? The point is, it's trying.
Oh well, at least hilarity ensues from a unique view. Jeez Kevin Butler is really a pissy cynic these days :D
Did you all even give it a read? It's pretty insightful....
I read it and TBH it didn't change my opinion, I still want the game, all I heard from him was how disingenuous he thought it was, he made some valid points which I am concerned about but ultimately I don't care, I want the game. --- http://www.terra-comic.com --> Terra: a Science Fiction Webcomic / Updates every 15th of the month.
