im going to start going back and playing board games with people, and offer them to buy an extra queen or rook for $10-20. You think you could play cards if you had extra pay cards on the side you charged your opponent to buy before hand? and just how long would you enjoy even winnning if you did pay for these items in these conditions. Just what happened to competition? what happened to skill?
why do we even play games or sports to begin with?
the industry is down this year another 25% after last years major decline. and while there are factors like ageing console systems and other things can take part of the blame for the decline, i cant help but see the connection to actual content involved for the player base and lack of challenge. I also cant help but reference the same things happening in the video games crashes of the 80's again. All this has happened before.
Now all games are overly focused on things like loot which now you can buy/sell in things like diablo, but what do you do with this loot? kill bosses to get more loot. Your build options end up becoming very limited, and everyone is always after the same types of stuff. Theres no originality in your style, and replay value is limited due to being so similiar.
what do we want out of games, and is the industry really even attempting to meet our needs, or drive us further into these economic machine of a model for games?
support smaller game companies that actually have to do new ideas with their games, instead of these big companies that want to become a permanent line in your checkbook every month by basically updating a few graphics and handing you a stripped down version of one of their previous glories.
i remember an age where i used to compete against the nastiest players i could knowing full well i was going to lose (and badly in some cases) just cause i knew i could better myself by doing so and learn some new tricks. What kind of perspective is common today? munchkin your way to the top as fast as you can and by any means (usually cash, or abuse) so that you get to look cool.
I remember when you could actually be cool instead of just looking the parts. altho its starting to fade from my memory like with everyone else it seems...
so want something cool to listen to that you've never heard?
alright, so its been about a year, and i figured id give gamespot another chance seeing as they are about the only game in town anyways.
Ive played some cool stuff while away, and some 'almost' cool stuff. More to come.
EDIT: and when did they remove the cut and paste functions to this website? and was it always this glitchy/clunky? This round might not last as long as i anticipated...
