OP  4/28/14 1:03:30 PM#1

Ever have the feeling of disappointment after you buy the game and believe the hype ?.

 

well for me that feeling has hit me a couple times this year and will probably continue 

Infamous Second Son-first offender good game overall but really expected more from the story and longer gameplay 10-12hrs to beat hardly qualifies being worth $60 but i'm probably alone on this.

 

next offender Elder Scrolls Online bought it almost two weeks ago and after beta its still feels disappointing being a generic mmo with an Elder Scrolls paint job spent $80 bucks to get the extras.

 

Bound by Flame looks decent but i read mixed opinions of this one. but i have a feeling i may get a little fun out of this but it may end up to be linear and then become very dull so i may wait for a after release review.

 

preordered Wolfenstein the new order i suspect decent game overall but most likely short and if it doesn't go over well it just won't feel like its worth $60 bucks.

read the article about Destiny so again mixed opinions 

why is it there are games few and far between that can go the extra mile with at least time played and worth the money ?

I remember when games would go for 60hrs+ for RPG games and other genres of games. now its like they just wanna pump the games out faster and faster without anything to make it feel like its worth the money and time to play.

look back at old systems and games everything i played felt like months to beat or even weeks nowadays i'm lucky if i game takes me 5 days to a week to finish. 

 

What is every one think of games these days and i mean the over hyped games you've bought ?.

Correction. It should be disappointed in mmo gaming because there is a slew of great non mmo games coming our way in 2014.

yeah your probably right but the lack of options kinda sucks.

either buy them for $60 and find out if they suck or not

pay for redbox or gamefly 

problem with both redbox charges you a few bucks a day and if you keep it longer its more money over time

gamefly they charge you monthly its about $17 or so with tax and the wait time and shipping is almost a week before you actually get the damn thing then thats almost 7 days out of your 30 day sub gone.

 

i think i read something about a streaming rental service sony may do soon but god only knows how much that will cost and all. 

hell that should be included in the PSN+ if you pay yearly for it.

I've gotten extremely picky for the same reason. I just bought Endless Legend early access and quite happy with my purchase. I'll definitely get Watch Dogs and The Division as well but other than that. It will be a long while before something comes out I'm interested in. Star Citizen and Elite Dangerous being top picks.

Last year I only bought 2 games. I'm tired of throwing money at poor titles I'll only play once or twice

Just to mention a few titles that have been a complete waste of money

ESO

Batman Arkham Asylum

Bioshock

DayZ standalone

From Dust

Far Cry 2

The Hitman Series

Tropico 3

Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls

 

There's no way I'll spend 60 bucks on any game. There's plenty of sites that sell keys legit, that'll give you a deal on any new game coming out.

I almost never buy games when they first come out anymore. I wait till I see reviews and then buy the ones that hold up to the "hype" that I think I'd like. I also buy a lot of them on steam sales. If they're really a great game they'll still be great a year or two from now and they'll also be $10

This problem is entirely self made I that there are endless videos out there for new games that allow you to see games as they really are. However some people are compulsive and in a way lazy, they but a game, then realise it doesn't suit them, and then blame the magical hype goblin. Example is Diablo ROS which is now great fun and very addictive - for those who enjoy that type of gameplay. Buying ROS and not liking it has nothing to do with hype as it us a high quality product, it is about not doing your research properly or understanding what you enjoy in a game.

So be patient and wait until you have seen eneough videos that you can make an informed decision and watch that hype goblin that you liked to blame for your stupidity vanish.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Pareto's principle. 80% of your fun comes from the 20% of games. In short: do your research. Be introspective and find out what TRULY makes you happy/entertained. ?????. Profit! Also: never trust the hype. I was hyped for 2 games(GW 2, D3) and both of them let me down. TOR, otoh, I despised for some reason(forgot which) and once I tried it...I was amazed.

If you can't find good MMOs(can't blame you there), try singleplayers. If even that fails, try taking a break and picking up a new hobby.

But I agree. Today's games are so copy/paste that it's unbelievable. I remember when the studios actually put some effort in their games /shocknawe. Not the rainbow turd ofc(ljn).

No video is going to tell you how the game is for you. A good example is Bioshock. Great gameplay videos and story but plays like shit at least to me. A very sub par shooter as far as movement and combat goes. Couldn't see how the game would actually 'feel' to play.

 

At best, a gameplay video can either peak your interest or kill it. It doesn't prevent you from buying a title you will only touch once. If it can for you then great

Since a few years ago i dont get disapoint with any game.

After following the dev of a game during about 2 years and then get disapoint for what the game was i learn a good lesson back in that time. It wasnt the game fault not even devs fault, it was my fault. My wipe was huge and i start imagine the game based in what i read and in the end was not what i imagine.

So nowadays, i resit to wipe myself and just try the games for what they are and just check if i like the game or not, its a simple process, normally i dont expect much about the games so no place for disapointement.

And its better this way, because sometimes i get amazed with a certain game  :)

Wait for the themepark bandwagon to collapse.

I'm sure in a few years there will be some great mmorpg's that add true mmorpg's elements instead of singleplayer elements.

What I do is: never pre-order. Twitch potentially good games. Revisit golden games like skyrim, fallout, cs, baldurs gate or whatever you have missed/never tried.

Like?

Mostly looking forward to Watchdogs.

Still continue to have small hopes on GTA-V pc release this fall.

Looking forward to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Dragon Age Inquisition, Cyberpunk 2077,  Tom Clancy: The Division,  Dying Light,  Evolve?,  Mad Max some might not even make 2014 but more 2015. Still plenty to look forward to and sure I have forgotten to mention a few more.

Arkham Asylum and Reaper of Souls are really solid. The rest I agree with.

Dark Souls 2 came out on PC recently. Look into it, game that is definitely worth its price, as far as I'm concerned.

Reaper of Souls I bought at a time I was tired of playing Diablo. I thought it would renew me wanting to play it again, but it didn't. It probably is a solid title but it was still a waste for me and I should have knownbetter. Arkham Asylum should have stayed a console game. Any port that still tells you to spam X key during an action scene is not worth my time. It works on a console game. Its just a distraction on the PC. Wasn't a big fan of the "unlock" achievements either

OP  5/02/14 8:33:55 PM#16

well as it stands i got to 50 on ESO this past tuesday and just cancelled my account i figured i'd get a little bit of my money's worth and cut my losses.

 

i decided to go for it and just bought bound by flame since its on sale for $34 bucks from steam so next friday hoping this game is good.

 

and as for my console gaming i'm wondering if i just wasted money on a PS4 since its just sitting here gathering dust and most of the games i'm going to buy are multi platform games. and as it stands i'm picky about what i spend $60 bucks on.

i'm sure down the line i'll find some games that i feel are worth the money at some point but its not like the past systems i've owned had a strong lineup in the first year either.

reviews are mostly just opinion unless you play the game yourself far as i can tell. case in point all this hate for Diablo 3 w/Reaper of souls i've been playing it a lot lately enjoying the game again since the loot system change and all but it could just be me lol.

 

my main hope for picking up games for PC is the steam sale coming this summer & winter sale.

About 90% of the people who complain that the new game they bought isn't as good as they thought it would be seems to have pre-ordered it or bought it the day it came out.

Try waiting a few months, then you will know a lot more about the game and a lot of the annoying bugs and other issues will be fixed.

Of course sometimes a game just wont work for you anyways but it would make things a lot easier.

*Sigh*, people are just in such a hurry nowadays.

That is one of 2 possible trends, yes. The other is that almost all games will be constantly online but letting you only see a few players at times.

It is very possible that the multiplayer games will move more towards social and group content again, but it is not a given horse.

Why not play a great CRPG like Skyrim?  It has excellent replayability due to all the great mods out for it...and new ones being worked on as I type this like Cyrodiil(Oblivion mod) and the Morrowwind Mod.    I know people that have over a 1000hrs into Skyrim alone.   I have over 375hrs and will soon be adding a ton more - been building a mod of my own(rebuilding Winterhold).   Skyrim is the single best RPG I have ever played...ever, next to Mount and Blade: Warband.    You can easily get 500hrs out of this game with, Skyrim, Dawnguard, Hearthstone, and Falskaar all together.

DayZ standalone is my only real regret. I think it was $30 or $40 but I logged maybe an hour in the game and decided I wasn't hardcore enough for it.
