This game did nothing, i mean absolutely NOTHING to me when shown during E3. It bored the shit out of me tbh, so here's another accolade from me to you Ubi, to go with your next trailers:

"Least Interesting Game Of E3"

Just tired of games using E3 accolades as a sign of anything, and then making a whole trailer around it. Very self-serving. I guess that's marketing for you.

Not "untruths", just because you didn't find it exciting in the least, doesn't mean no one else did. Plus whoever was at E3 had the opportunity to go hands-on with the game, so while you're judging the game from 1 video or 2, the press judged the game from the demo they played plus all the videos.

Not every game will appeal to everyone, nor it should - a duck can walk, fly and swim, but doesn't do any of those particularly well, if you get what I mean.

Not arguing against your taste, just against what you said: that the accolades the game recieved are "untruths"/not real/not deserved. To me, for example, the game looks great and seems like Far Cry 3 times 10, so I can't wait to play it.

I'm also not saying the game will undoubtedly be great, Titanfall received lots of awards at last E3 and was just CoD with mechs. But the press judges games by what they watch and play - as do all gamers - and if the demo is very good or amazing, they won't say the game is horrible.

And Marketing and PR will take advantage of that, which they should as it is their job.

It's more Far Cry 3.5 than times 10, but ok.

Where are these 10 new innovations or big changes to the same tired ubisoft open world filler sidequest/collectathon design? There are some new vehicles and shooting while driving and kill animations. But I don't see much else new, and what new I mentioned was just miniscule.

I kind of agree. Though I will buy it, play it & almost certainly enjoy it, I am not biting my nails waiting to play it.

Trailer looks nice though.

Don't remember which article, but it was one in EuroGamer with an interview in which the developer said they expanded the world and what you can do in it greatly from FC3. Plus the fact you can play with other people who don't own the game is just icing on the cake. I believe there will be many new and great things to do in the game, so I'm excited about it.

In regards to not being a proper sequel, how many sequels are 1.0 rather than 0.5? To me a 1.0 sequel is something akin to what AC2 did from AC1, which transformed a very boring game concept (5/10) into an epic game concept (10/10). Or what CoD4:MW did with the franchise.

The majority of sequels is basically that 0.5 you said - while most sports games sequels are like 0.1 updates, so that doesn't bother me in the least, otherwise I wouldn't play most games that come out. Plus I loved Far Cry 3, so more of that epicness is welcomed.

As for Ubisoft's standard game design, millions of players just love having those great open-world playgrounds to play and wreak havoc, and want their U$60 games to be longer than 5 hours or just a long single-player campaign. I know it's not for everyone, but a lot of gamers just like to stay in the game's world and enjoy it a while longer or as long as possible, even if it's just enjoying the side activities and collecting stuff.

Is their formula getting stale, sure, but their games are still great for millions of players - me included, and a lot of franchises are shifting to the open-world formula like Metal Gear Solid and The Legend of Zelda.

And what's the point of having a big open world environment if you don't have anything to do in and with it? Perhaps Ubisoft's biggest problem is one of creativity and execution instead of having a lot of stuff to do. Even so, I played Watch Dogs and enjoyed all of the side activities, except for those mini-games like Chess and Poker.

Not saying Ubisoft should use it with every game, but that's their preferred game design style, so I don't hold it against them, in the same way that I don't hold against other studios for having a preferred game design style that's in most of their games.

If you stop to think about it, it's actually quite common, though what the great studios do is diversifying and changing the formula enough that it feels fresh. To me, Ubisoft's problem is that it doesn't do this properly.

Or maybe it's because Gamespot editors hadn't had enough time to attend/play the competition it turned out 'Best of E3' ? What i've seen is far from that, sort of felt like the yearly soulless CoD sequels without anything new. But as you pointed out, opinion is subjective.

how is new interactions like elephants and helicopters "nothing new", FC4 is vastly different from FC3, FC3 was on a set of tropical islands and apart from the base jumps, gliders and the flight midway through the story that was the only kind of flying that could be done, now you have helicopters and elephants what's old about that!

Edit: i know elephants cant fly unless their name is "Dumbo" lol.

How is new animals like elephants and new flying vehicles like helicopters a totally new FC ? That's some weak pre-order bonus features at best, modders could do better. Some people can be really easily impressed. Sort of like the amount of explosions in MW. It's got twice as much explosions so it must be twice as fun. I liked FC3 btw, but this one, i d'ont know, it feels like playing FC3 all over again, just in a new paintwork.

I think that's a pretty shallow. Not every iteration needs to be a complete redesign for the sake of it. And it's not like it's the fourth clone of a yearly franchise.

sorry but how is mountain ranges the same as tropical islands?, were their elephants and helicopters in previous far cry games that you could use!, i still have no clue why your here as you have made it clear you don't like this game, i don't waste time to go on to games threads that i don't like telling everyone i don't that game, im looking forward to it even if your not.
