All About Sargatanas13576
Is Mario break-dancing at Club Shroom?
22Sep 07I just read a feature on GamePro.com, "The 10 biggest flops in video games." Under #9 they talk about how great, innovative games like Psychonauts and Beyond Good & Evil are on the decline because of bad sales. Now anyone who has played either of these games, including the big gaming magazines & web sites, will tell you to pick up these games right away. I picked up both of them (together) myself for $50 + tax. You can't even get a good new release for that price. But because (apparently) the general gaming public is too chicken to drop a 20 on a game that didn't get advertised during the Superbowl, innovation is losing the war to sequels and clones. Don't get me wrong. I am guilty of buying Ratchet & Clank 2-Deadlocked and all of the 3D Mortal Kombat games. I also plan to buy Heavenly Sword (God of War clone) when I get a PS3. Does this mean I won't check out LittleBigPlanet? No! I am not alone in saying that I am sick & tired of WWII first person shooters. Heck, I'm tired of shooters in general. How many have hit the 360 since it's launch? What's that? Game of the year is....A SHOOTER!!! I for one am shocked! Of course there wasn't much else to choose from. So I guess what I'm saying is.....TAKE A CHANCE PEOPLE!!!!! On the rare occasion that a great game that isn't just like the last 3 you played is released, at least go rent it!! Money spent supporting innovation is money well spent.
Just read an article on GamePolitics.com about a new game coming out on PC. BCFX. Black College Football: The Xperience. Now many (mostly white people I would assume) are in an uproar over a game that apparently only features black people. Well guess what? There IS a double standard. SO WHAT!!! That's just the way it is in the U.S. History is history. Some rehash the old argument that if someone made an all white football game there would be a riot. It's true. SO WHAT!!! Latin Grammys, BET, not for everyone. Do I think that making a game like this is in slightly poor taste or even asking for trouble? Yes. Does it really bother me? No. To me it's comparable to children making a no girls/boys allowed club. It's likely that it's all just a ploy to get attention. It's also likely that this game will not even be very good and it's media attention will out do it's sales. I generally don't even like football or football games but due to undue controversy I have heard about this game. I think it's time for us to mature as a society and stop complaining about things that don't even affect us. It's a video game, not affirmative action. Let's get some perspective here! Sometimes it's cool just to have something just for you. White people have had their turn.
Make no assumptions about my race.
