Gamers are some of the most outspoken or well-spoken people you can imagine. However with that said, come some of the most idiotic statements and assumptions when it comes to console exclusive games and great titles such as Forza 4, Fable, Gears 3, God of war 3, Uncharted 3 and others.
Now I’ve personally played each one of these titles and have found a ton of things that I loved about each game individually. Their stories and gameplay are great and aside from the endings and plot holes that were apparent in some of the games, I really liked what I saw. As much as I saw greatness there were also a few bad aspects that I didn’t like in some of the titles. Personally, I don’t like how some of these titles are taking influences from the media and cash cow titles like Call of Duty. I personally feel that now some games are tacking on a Modern Warfare 3 type multiplayer experience. This isn’t bad in some instances; the only problem that occurs is when every game tries to do it. Who remembers when Uncharted 2: Among Thieves released title update 1.5 that broke the game and fixed it for some. That is what I am talking about here.
Now we have played other great titles that have offered better multiplayer experiences than the normal mainstream experience. I have to admit that even though I am a fan of God of War 3, Uncharted 3, and Gran Turismo 5 there were just a few things that I didn’t like about the games. Uncharted’s 3’s multiplayer is fun but I just can’t lose myself in the game like I used to with Uncharted 2. Gran Turismo 5 doesn’t have the same appeal it had to me when I played GT 3 A-Spec or GT4 and God of War felt a little too short to me.
Finally, I’m the type of person that is rational enough to admit when something is wrong in a game or when I don’t like certain aspects of the design or gameplay. It’s hard to determine what perfection is but it isn’t hard to describe what we as gamers want from our purchases. I know the mantra that all gamers pay 60+ dollars blah, blah, and we are entitled to…. However, that is no reason that we all can’t be critical of titles in a rational way.
My question to you all here is this. Are there any titles that you feel people are blindly hyping up just because the previous titles were great and groundbreaking? If you do feel this way post what the title was and how it made you feel. I’ll be waiting to discuss with you so don’t be afraid to let us know.
