Agreed, I'm not a big fan of these neither.

I disagree with both of you, I think it's great to see where they're drawing their inspiration from. These videos could pass for some BBC documentary material. Besides, no-one's forcing you to look at them. :P

I only hope they properly and tastefully implement what they have learned of the Nepalese culture in FC4.

since no one has played the game yet... maybe these videos are of great value about the background and depth for intellectuals who look forward to the plot line of Far Cry 4. . . just maybe.

if you dont like the videos - it would be wise to stop watching them and furthermore, injecting your negativity. i'm rather excited about this game, the negative comments about the vidoc (months before anyone has played the game) is pure annoyance.

Listen buddy, you dont tell me what's wise for me to do or not do, you are not me, you are not god, you are no one important to me, if I want to comment on anything in a way of which i express myself, that's my choice, not yours. I don't care if it annoys you or anyone else, its my opinion, and I will choose whether i keep it to myself or put it on a public website, not you

You are talking about the game. The comments are on the video itself. I think it's a pointless video. If that annoys you, then that is your problem. Don't tell people not to watch a video because you don't like their opinion.

I don't know about anyone else, but after having watched all 3 vidocs, I found them to be both enlightning and somewhat entertaining. I was able to get a glimpse of a place totally different than mine and one that I most likely will never visit in my life.

As for what this means for the game, if anyone watched the vidocs carefully, they saw a glimpse of how much rich the culture and the people of Nepal are and how a part of that, no matter how small, will create a more believable and rich world.

When one of the developers said they came back from that travel and felt the game was too cliche and artificial and they were explaining to the other developers how to make the world of FC4 feel like a real place instead of the "Disneyland version of Nepal", that's what these vidocs were about.

They went to places, interviewed people, took tons of pictures, made a lot of videos and most importantly, took a lot of what they experienced back to the studio to share with others to make something more realistic, more true and respectful to the people and culture of Nepal than what they originally were doing.

Of course FC4 won't be as close to the real thing as it can, but it will be much more than if they hadn't travelled to Nepal, interviewed different people and researched the culture and its history.

These vidocs aren't "useless" nor boring, but they're not for everyone, but for those of us who actually appreciate the effort the developers made to make a much better game. And that's what they showed, how much more better and realistic the world in which the game takes place in will be. That's what they wanted to share with us and I thank them all for it.

Tip- don't watch it then. Why did you ever bother to share your pointless whining with the world? Personally I like travel docs and it's interesting to see how far devs go for research.

so now you are telling someone they cannot share their opinion about the comment you made, hypocrite, i chose to reply to your comment if that annoys you 'tough', like moroboshi said its about research.

far cry 4, not just far cry 3 in the mountains but a whole new game entirely, looking forward to seeing how they implement what they have learnt form these vidoc's which are not useless in any way.
