All About sir_lancelot_b
To whoever reads this,
I am still fairly new to the whole gaming world, having only purchased my XBox 360 last December. However, I've been trying to keep up with some of the latest news, concerning upcoming games, DLCs and the like, and a lot of what I'm reading are complaints from the consumer.
One thing that keeps coming back a lot is that DLCs are costly and most of the time they could simply have been included with the game itself. Though I agree on both counts and would like it that way myself, I need to ask myself and everyone in the same position one simple question: have you any idea how much it must cost and how much time must be invested into producing a game?
With a more and more demanding market to satisfy, it would seem normal that companies try to push the boundaries and keep up with the latest technology by giving us nice cinematics, gameplay, storytelling and visuals. But only so much of it can fit on a disc or two. The only logical thing then would be to offer the extras in the form of downloadable content that, I might add, you need not download yourself if it's too expensive.
What with so many games out there that I would love to try, I save my money and buy a new one every once in a while. I went all out on the collector's edition of Mass Effect 2 and purchased Kasumi - Stolen Memories and I'm enjoying it. Because:
- Life is too short to worry about the numbers, if you like something buy it, if not then don't;
- There is more to life than just video games.
If you try to follow up with all the games that come out then I can't help but feel sorry for you. Not in the condescending way, but rather because then definitely your wallet will be taking a big hit. But if you live by the previous two "rules" I don't see why we can't just enjoy the product that so much hard work has given us.
My suggestion: check up on the reviews, try the demo if any is available. Rent or borrow from a friend. If you buy everything that hit the shelves and find yourself disappointed, then I in turn find myself feeling sorry for you. And I mean it in the condescending way this time.
My Recent Reviews
Some people just don't have opinions. Like sir_lancelot_b.
sir_lancelot_b does not have any recent activity. What a slacker! Maybe you should send sir_lancelot_b a private message and ask, "Where are you hiding?"
