People who hate on FF7 and love on FF4/5/6 are just elitist bandwagoners. They are all amazing games in their own right.

Nobody really called FF7 angsty and emo when it was first released -- then many years later these descriptors like "emo" get trendy/popular to make fun of people and fanboys start referring to FF7 as emo. Usually these same people are the ones who will argue to the death that 4/5/6 are vastly superior and there is simply no comparison. They're goofballs.

Oh, almost forgot...:

All this FF7 talk reminds me of this.

all the FFVII haters are faggots. Sure it is a tad overrated and for some reason it's mentioned many times more than the other FF games but it is an incredible game, just like FF 4 to 10

let me guess, you also think chrono trigger/cross, legend of mana, vagrant story, suikoden, xenogears, the legend of dragoon and valkyrie profile are for emos and faggots too, right ?

which is weird since from the looks of you, one would think you'd be an RPG fanatic.

FF7 was one of few games I fell in love with before I even played them. Maybe it's not as good in retrospective, but back then it was something huge.

You really do have an incessant need to criticise any popular game that you don't like. Every time I read this thread it's like "oh look, another post from shadowhunter. Time for us all to learn something from his superior nerd intellect".

Honest but obviously rhetorical question here: Have you ever enjoyed a video game as much the fans of those popular games that you slate, or are you just on to high a cerebral level for such endeavours?

another selective reader i see... i love these posts of butthurt individuals that can't accept a game they like is shit and then go on "SH doesn't like anything. every post of his is bashing every game imaginable" despite there being a post on this very page praising a game. not to mention i explained to you my position some time ago using a music analogy so you can more easily understand

retards. retards never change. most (fortunately not all) of the peeps in this thread are like the "B.T.K.s of gaming" and can't accept that fact. lulz

didn't realize there was a huge original Deus Ex revision in the works. Though it was supposed to be out last year.

this one?. there's also the environment textures one that has been out for a while (New Vision), and the objects/actors textures and models (HDTP) that will hopefully be out this year

Oh look, another Shadowhunter post...

It's obvious your attitude will always be the same with regards to this thread and to a lesser extent, some other threads on this board. It's just a shame that the rest of us have to keep reading your boring retorts.

I don't think anybody here is complaining that you don't like anything because that's obviously not true. It's moreso the fact that you jump at every opportunity to slate anything you don't like and come across as bitter and overtly cynical. Evidently I'm not the only person who feels this way about your comments, and don't get me wrong, cynicism and antagonism can be entertaining when done with a sense of humour (i.e. Szadou, Skeet etc) but you come across as way too serious.

Calling me butt hurt is again missing the point. It's a fucking video game. It means nothing to me whether you like it or not, I was replying to your reply.

I guess I'm probably wasting time with this anyway, I doubt you care enough to take any of this into consideration and It'd be a waste of time to go and gather quotes from you calling people retards and idiots to give you a sense of how your attitude comes across.

Let's just put it down to the fact that you're probably not a people person.

It seems to be getting pretty meh reviews. Mainly about it's pacing, I believe. That's disappointing. If they have a demo on PSN I'd try it before buying.

D3 review...

I clocked a lot of time into D3 and decided it's overrated. The story is horribly conveyed later on (like in Act III and IV, where the evils are basically telling you where to go after each objective) and there's way too much carrot-on-a-stick going on. People say that that is what D2 was like, but I disagree. Inferno isn't rewarding because it's just the elite mobs that are hard... and not in a good way. Most of them are just cheap. You beat them by either kiting them or avoiding them completely. Act III and IV seem like they were rushed. If the whole game was like act I it would be a lot better.

I haven't played hardcore yet, which would probably be much more rewarding. My computer lags too much. Once I get a new PC then I probably will. Even then I'm sure online lag would still end up killing me.

Also, no PVP yet and the auction house is just badly implemented. These will be patched in, which is good. Too bad they cant patch in a new story for the last two acts, though.

reviewers are morons. corrupted morons at that. pretty much all the complaints they have for DD are also there in their beloved skyrims and dragon ages except those were made by western companies that bribed them as usual, except DD doesn't have shitty level scaling and the combat and exploration are actually very well made and fun, and the party AI is pretty damn neat. if you want a decent and relatively objective review, there's one for the OXM magazine (the dude had the game for quite a long time and posted plenty of solid videos on their yt channel)

there's a demo on psn, but it's shitty. you have an OP party in the tutorial and an OP party for a griffing hunting quest. pretty boring and way too short

Ah OK, Thanks for the info. reviewers are pretty stupid, I agree. I just watched gametrailers.com's review and they said the gameplay was awesome. Their main gripes were with the story and that mob locations are kind of predictable. I think I'd like this game.

Actually, as far as reviews are concerned Game Informer gave it an 8.5 which is a pretty damn good score if you ask me. Regardless I still want to play this game since it does sound and look amazing.

As for those claiming it's receiving nothing but negative reviews, that's probably because the ones who are reviewing it are most likely not avid RPG players nor do they comprehend them in the first place. Further if you pay close attention to the writing of some of these reviewers, you'll find that they're most likely immature fan boys just barely out of their teens who were hired to review games as college interns or whatever.. Fuck them and their community college journalistic degrees!

German Gamepro gave 79 to DD, whilst Skyrim got 93. And in their System 79 means "for fans of the genre". It is a typical bought-reviews magazine though, I never saw one of the "blockbuster" games getting even mediocre scores.
