I’'m with you on this one. Nice way to put it.
There’s also people who would call that a shenanigan and it’s very hard to contradict them.
And when the shenanigan is played on over 1 million people, for 60-80 $/euro each, humor looses it’s grip as a solution, in my opinion.
I ended up discussing here, about this game, because I wanted refuge, sanctuary, from MMOs “pay me again for a spoon” crap
only to discover I’m being cornered again by gaming industry blunt stupidity and lack of style.
I think it’s time for me to give them the finger, one way or another, and there’s plenty of ways to do that.
Next time you read articles about gaming industry shares going to dump status remember it’s not only about “the economy” but first about what many in this industry deliver as product lately. Utter crap. Next one to try and sell farmville platform or lab rat experiment (Skinner box) as gaming product should bite the dust too. And the next one. And the next one. And so on.
Excuse my generalization (the whole gaming industry starting from only this pathetic title? please, get a grip). I made it not only because SC, but because the past 3-4 years at it.
The RPS actually gave me some hope, pointing to games that usually go under the radar.
Some of them are good. We can only guess what will evolve as future main stream to fill the current emptiness in entertainment.
