I have so little interest in this game...

The gameplay they have shown just seems really... boring.

WTF is that "go play CoD". A lot of people use this nonsense. You know, its still a game and its a good game. Not best, but good. From all those things You could say, You say bullshit like this. I applaud You.

Yes its a game and yes its has it charms. But if anything the games of last few years are the prime example of uninspiring milker y of a gaming franchise.

And a franchise that does things different and uses many different aspects(good story telling, atmosphere etc) being called boring is imo bullshit.

So thats why i used it as an example. And it was more then appropriate.

Story telling looks alright, if you want another Ken Levine yarn, which I don't have that much interest in. Atmosphere looks decent I guess, but it's not captivating me.

The most uninspiring thing is the game play, bar the gimmicks, it looks pretty straight forward to say the least.

I'd be surprised if it wasn't a good game, but I have pretty much no interest in it.

To be fair ir looks A LOT like Bio shock, which was A LOT like system shock. So i don't know if this particular series of games is all that innovative within it's own confines. Sure it's not a military shooter, but they are on the fourth iteration of the same model, so in a sense it's not all that creative. And isn't atmosphere and storytelling rather subjective? Not that i like CoD much, but how is that a counter argument against your your view of this game?

Oh no, he doesn't like like the same games i do! Go play your shitty CoD, you plebeian ass!

So what's the next step? Anyone who doesn't like the sublime simulation of Europa Universalis is a CoD-tard? :P

Yeah i am sorry.
How dumb of me to use COD as an example of how game series are being milked dry to the bone. Because cod innovates and takes risk every year.
And especially since brovil posted such a great intelligent and good supported comment, it surely deserved a counter aurgement from the same level.
And mij deepest apologies to everybody i offended.

Don't care about cod in the least, just don't like the holier-than-thou attitude, because of what is essentially not that much better. And you didn't use it as an example, you pretty much used it as a way to insult him, for not agreeing with you that this game is pants shittingly awesome. So yeah, well played :P

I so sorry sir megido
I cant seem to find the line where i state that my opinion is better then his, Or that Bioshock is the best game ever.

And you didn't use it as an example, you pretty much used it as a way to insult him, for not agreeing with you that this game is pants shittingly awesome.
Maybe you interpreted it differently then what was my intention.

Again my deepest apologies to everybody who was deeply hurt by my comment.

I simply expressed what I thought of the game. How is that void of intellect? If you're eager to hear me expand my impressions(which I did above) you only need ask.

About the game
