Cry MOAR

Why do I always get sucked into flame wars? lol. I was trying to dig up info on the next RE game coming out and it wasn't long before I ended up on Capcom's forum under the MvC3 section (just out of curiosity) and saw a huge 113 page complaint thread. After reading 5 page or so of crap of people just nerd raging I ended up posting a huge counter rant about people crying over every little thing. I have a history if posting huge novel length rants when I'm against a large amount of people against things. I however managed to stop myself this time and shorten it drastically which I'm proud of actually. But seriously people really do cry over anything anymore. Most of the games I play that people complain about they're always complaining that is isn't like (past game here) and it pisses me off because it encourages lazy development and discourages original ideas and risk taking. The game industry NEEDS new ideas and new kinds of games, not 12 HALOs and 15 Call of Duty 's. MvC3 took a huge risk dramatically altering its roster from MvC2 given MvC2 had a huge fan base and I respect that. Was it the greatest thing? No but at least they're adding downloadable content for more characters.

Eh I don't know. I haven't had a serious complaint about a game since Command & Conquer 4 but that's just because the game was atrocious and ruined one of my favorite franchises. Which was risk yes but the way they did it was just downright idiotic. If a game isn't perfect it isn't perfect but I wont raid forums all day crying over it.

  2. Wow man I like it too when they change the game a bit but, I would kind of hate if my favorite character gets crappy.

  3. True but I haven't seen any complains about messing up characters in the game just them not being there at all lol. Which I can understand but not enough to rant to forums all day about it.

  4. People whine about anything these days. I haven't played MvC3, but I'm going to take a random guess and say people are complaining about is overpowered.

  6. The annoying part is that there are plenty of games I'd happily take more of the same from, but they either don't bother to release anything else or they so drastically change the gameplay in the sequel that it's not the same game.

  7. The Capcom forums are filled with salty kids. At least they're not Gamefaqs though. Seriously, take a look at Gamefaqs forums for MvC3 and you will see tons of threads filled with nothing but whining.

    "I hate projectile spammers!"
    "Sentinel is so OP!"
    "WTF NO MEGAMAN?"

    etc.

  9. Some people just love to complain. It happens with everything. If it is really that bad, they shouldn't buy it. That is also the only way that developers will stop creating 10 different versions of a game.

  10. A few years ago I decided that forums were bad for the game industry. While developers have forums to reach out to and communicate with their community of fans, they also breed a false sense of entitlement.

  11. A lot of people don't have anything better to do and love to bitch about everything. But nerd rage is the best rage.
