Now having said that I think 3/5 sounds about right. I like to classify games that score around 50-70% as games that are good for genre fans but your average mcdonalds eating gamer might want to avoid them as they are an acquired taste. It's quite common for most indie crpgs to end up in this bucket due to lack of funding etc.
In order to rate something 3/5 you have to specify what exactly is causing you to be so negative towards it, and to apply that same criteria across the board.
I think that is subjective. For me 6/10 is a perfectly acceptable game. For a genre fan that 6/10 is more like a 8/10. But for your "average" gamer i.e. who plays GoW, CoD etc it would be 6/10.
Get what I mean?
Agree. Perhaps I am not ariticulating my point. You must also acknowledge some might not find it their cup of tea though right? The kind of person who would also review Pillars as a 5-7/10 (or lower).
And you are still dodging stating any specifics.
I've noticed you've chosen to make this game a target for your hilarious one-liners, but at no point have you ever said why this particular game has drawn your wrath. I see in this post you're suggestive that you're never going to say and that you feel that's the right thing to do. Because you're reasoning is 'bollocks'?
*Sits back and waits for the inevitable hilarious one-liner*
Really? I'm sure you can point out all these hilarious one-liners, right?
Yeah, I found myself wondering if Lackblogger actually wrote that.
I think it's a combination of that and some Watchers having subpar tastes.
Imagine being so naive that you think critics are neutral and unbiased.
I'm not sure why me saying Black Geyser isn't as good as games like Baldur's Gate or PoE, which most people are going to agree with, would elicit such butthurt from you.
There's no wrath here from me. I'm just stating the obvious.
Your claim was that JDR was targeting Black Geyser with one-liners, but only 1 of the 4 examples you cited even pertains to Black Geyser? One was him giving you shit and he even said he was kidding, another was him giving shit to RPGWatch review scores in general (not even yours specifically), and another was him giving shit to game reviewers/critics in general (not you specifically)…
Then the last one, which did actually pertain to Black Geyser, simply said that PoE/BG are better than Black Geyser, which doesn't seem like a controversial or edgy comment in the least: 99+% of people will probably agree.
I don't care what opinion you have, you'll notice my complaint has consistently been people saying stuff about the game without actually talking about the game.
Any watchers who played this, who have any more impressions?
Ok game at best. The game tries to replicate old school rpgs except it is worse than those games. If you have played every other crpgs out there already, and you need some more, then go ahead give this one a try. I still managed to finish it.
(My play time distorted by leaving the game running for days)
Perhaps you really should talk about the game in this thread instead of being at each other's throats Although reading all the crap here is entertaining in a perverted way.
Regarding the game: I thought the modest beginning of it appeared more tempting than the bombastic demon hunting of WotR. There seems to be the feeling of adventure to it.
