Mehh...I love bazylions of weapons and always looking for the best one even if it does only +0,1 more damage. Thats the fun.

imo, plain wrong. I can cope with a middle ground, but games that throw useless loot like mass Effect 1 to full our inventory and make it a chore to manage, to crap loot after loot that spawns with every minion killed or just plain useless loot like FFXIII weapon system that makes you deal with the same weapon chapter after chapter, so many hours and begs you to spend items upgrading them, for you to recieve a "new" stronger one that is just a bit stat-weaker that the weapon before because of the slight upgrade of the previous you had to endure, its all just poor conceived loot systems.

Let them streamline and make the fine balance, there is still to come a game that I played and tried to make a clinical look at loot and how to improve it, so i say let'em try to do that.

That shot is not doing them any favors. It looks bad in the thumbnail. You can't see what's interesting about it (the depth) until you blow it up.

Sure are a lot of top-down loot-drop games.

Is this the spiritual successor too Torchlight 2, because it sure looks like it.

Mass Effect was at the extreme. Not only did they give you a bajillion fuckin' items every ten seconds, but the inventory was just 100% awful. Diablo 2 did just fine by limiting the inventory, and making you go back to town frequently to identify/sell anything that wasn't awesome but without making it hard.

Also, no one is "wrong" except yourself for saying someone else is wrong. Plenty of people love that kind of game. Giving examples of games that did it poorly is hardly a great way of making your argument when games that did it well... well they did it well.

You're not supposed to be looking at the thumbnail you are supposed to look at it at the full resolution... So...? It does look awful, both in that it shows nothing and that it looks like the game is running a significantly lower resolution then the picture itself.

Anyone who's ever taken an art and/or marketing class knows about composition and the "10 foot test", where you see how something looks far away (in this case, a thumbnail) as well as up close (fullscreen). In today's A.D.D. society, thumbnails count as much as a fullscreen shot and a snappy headline.
