So screw Zenimax becuase the guy broke an agreement which he signed himself which gives Zenimax the rights to anything he worked on while an employee of Zenimax? You know this is pretty standard practice for any company. Dont know why you kids try to act like suddenly this one company is greedy and evil for doing it when every company in the world uses the same types of agreements to ensure this type of stuff doesnt happen and that they have a claim to anything created by their employees using their resources.

I believe it's because they are trying to claim things he was working after he worked for Zenimax. They have a right to anything he worked on while with the company, just not work he did after.

All code he worked on while he was with the company is theirs. But not code he worked on after.

I was watching an episode of "Mad about You" a 90's TV show. In the episode, Paul invests money into a VR headset without his wife's knowledge and comedy ensues.

The Idea of VR headsets have been around for a long time. Zenimax doesn't own that idea. However they would own any lines of code that were created while John was working for them.

I would rather pay a fee each month than be nickel and dimed.

That's why when I go back to Lotro now and then, I just re-start my subscription. I would rather have access to everything than pay for each zone and mount skill and bag space, and a million other things you have to pay for if you play for "Free"

and the few things I do want from the store, I get from my 500 points a month I earn from paying for the game. I have never had to pay more than fifteen dollars a month.

 

Then when I get tired of the game (I usually do) I just stop my subscription.

Um... 4 hours time it took for me to realize GW2 wasn't a very fun game for me and had issues. I had 2 max level characters in the game as I drilled my way hoping for something to spark which it did not.  So yeah, just cause someone feels your favorite game isn't that great (both personally as well as looking critically upon it) doesn't mean you should miss quote them about it.  I played Mesmer and Thief both to 80 and I could never get into the game. I tried and tried but no, it didn't pan out. Yes, I know I'm stupid for wasting my time when I felt I wasn't big on it to start, but thus the masocist in me was seeking to find value in my purchase to no avail. 

 

Sorry, I'm not picking apart your message but I was wondering about your first paragraph. You say you have 2 max characters in GW2 in 4 hours? If this isn't the case and you didn't have fun in those first 4 hours, why would you play 2 characters to max level?

When it comes to "intolerance of a dissenting opinion", there's three main categories of people here, and on gaming forums in general. 

1. Will ask you if you've completed some arbitrary laundry-list of tasks, saying "your opinion doesn't matter" unless you have, and that you're basically not allowed to criticize or express dislike of a game unless you've gone all the way through the game and "have done everything". It's an obvious attempt to pre-emptively disqualify a dissenting opinion of a game by setting some arbitrarily high bar that - it's assumed - someone will not have reached.

2. In the event that the player has done everything (or at least the vast majority of it), the challenge then changes to something more in line with what you asked: "Well, if the game is so bad, then why did you play it for so long?"

3. The third category would be people who like a game but aren't insulted or threatened when someone else voices a negative or critical opinion of it. These people are very rare. Even more rare are those who can empathize and see how others might have the complaints they have, even if they don't share them.

Your question would fall under this 2nd category.

Items 1 and 2 most apply here, and are a blatant catch 22. No matter what the person says, their opinion will still be deemed irrelevant, because they're going to fall into either of the two categories. It's a completely obvious tactic used with an equally transparent motive.

The questions don't really matter, because those asking don't really what an answer. They're only interested in dismissing and invalidating an opinion they disagree with.

Interestingly, you'll only face those questions if you're critical of the game. If you're praising the game, it doesn't matter if you just installed it and haven't even gotten out of character creation. If you say "this is the absolute best MMO on the market", those same people issuing #1 and #2 above will not even second guess you. It's an interesting double-standard that happens constantly around here, with every game.

And in every case, it's indicative of people who can't tolerate negative opinions of a game they like.

 

 

You can not be serious right now...have you even...know what nevermind.

 

Actually he is spot on. Please do tell what part of that he got wrong. I think he nails it on the head.

He's halfway correct, he seems to only see one side which is what people around here like to call White Knights.  You can basically take his 3 categories and pin it to the other end of the spectrum  (the haters is what people call that here) and you get the same results.  He likes to call out white knights but never call out the haters?  Why is that I wonder?

This is just crazy. If a gamer says, I played for four hours didn't like it and quit. the critics say, You can't judge a game after four hours, your opinion doesn't count.

So now we have a guy who didn't like it after four hours but continued to play, (After all you can't judge a game after 4 hours) leveled out two characters and he is criticized for "Continuing to play."

What's up with that???

Just kidding

(I am looking forward to the game, hope it's well made)

Originally posted by chrisatron Developers should stop catering so much to casuals and start making content and games that require some sort of thought, some strategy and furthermore teamwork! Also, I hate to hear this "Well I can't play for hours on end grinding for particular gear, so it should be easier!" Look, if you don't have the time to commit to an MMO then you shouldn't play an MMO, simple.
So many things wrong with this post. Developers are not obligated to cater to anyone just because you say so. if they decide their core audience is now the casuals, it is their prerogative, and they can cater their game to anyone they want. Secondly, i don't commit to any MMO, and i do play them. They are entertainment products, and i use them as i see fit, not what you think how i should play games. It is the devs that put in great features like LFD .. obviously trying to get my play-time. I don't see any reason not to play a MMO, on short spurts, if it is fun.  
  How come you jump into every single thread that is about more hardcore gameplay in MMOs and basically writes exactly the same thing?  
Because such threads are just repeating exactly the same thing as posted before. It is quite appropriate. A repeated response to a repeated topic. Of course, there will be variation on the language to make it more fun.
Yes we all get it you play for fun, yes we all get it you like instant gratification rules, yes we all get it you play MMOs and singleplayers games for fun and yes we all get the silver spoonfed mentality.

 

But please stop just for once with your copy/paste respons and play the games you like ok, you seems to have shitloads of games and still you had the time to jump into  threads like this and yet again tell everyone you like silverspoon feed games, ok we got it, just let it go.

 

 




Why is it OK for the copy/paste threads to get started, but not OK for a copy/paste response? If it's the same thread as before, why not the same response as before?

 

Wait??? So you're saying there have been other thread topics about Hardcore vs Casual??? Next you will be saying there are more than one thread about, "what is a Sandbox?"  :)

Signing a petition is meaningless. I could put my name on there and there is no way in  hell I'd play that game again.

Get the rights for the game and start a kickstarter up for it and see how many ppl REALLY want it back.

That's not a bad idea, the only question is, would NCsoft sell the rights.

Pffft. "In my opinion" was implied even it wasn't stated, you just don't LIKE what I said.

And Sarcasm was implied in what I said.

I would love to see Tabula Rasa come back to life, albeit with some changes to improve gameplay to be more appealing to the masses.

 

I believe they could do two things to truly improve the play

1) Planetside 2 combat style. There were almost there anyway.

2) Let the Bane be a playable race. Incorperate that into the pvp

This game died fair and square.  It shouldn't come back unless it's getting a complete revamp, IMO.

And sometimes it is simply the subscription model. Quite a few games have failed at 15 dollars a month but have succeeded as FTP.

I remember when Tabula Rasa came out, I was counting down the days, then I went to Game stop and asked for the game; they said "What's Tabula Rasa?"

If Game Stop didn't even know about the game up release day,  then there was horrible marketing.

There are other reasons besides 'being a bad game' that can cause a game to fail.

The Videos imply Wildstar will be  fun and light-hearted  sci-fi game. So not everyone will like it.

 

You can't please everyone so just make the game you want to make and hope there are those who enjoy it as well.

Refresh my memory - how do I tell if I'm hardcore or casual?

 

If you enjoy a game and play because it's fun, then you are a casual. Having a job is a plus

 

If you play "to be better than the other baddie/carebear/wusses" then you are hardcore. Having a job excludes you unless you have insomnia and can get your 14 hours per day in.

If you enjoy instanced pvp where you opponents are just a numerous and powerful as you, you are a casual

If you and you ten buddies in full plate male enjoy killing noobs who are so weak they don't stand a chance, you are hard core.

It's all out there, if you like theme parks, if you like FFA full loot pvp there are games that exist in those styles.

Nothing is ruined, unlike when there were only three MMO's we have all the choice in the world.

Hunger would be great in a Vampire MMO.

Old WoW (Vanilla) was decent fun, and plenty of adults played it, myself included. Many stayed through Burning Crusade.

 

The only thing that killed it for me was the "improvements".  When it became fast leveling, automatic cross-realm grouping, raid centric, and heavily phased long-arc storyline questing, it just didn't feel like the same game.

 

I would agree with much of that. I would add Daily quest as well.

What games should they clone? Ones that did real bad? The WoW formula has a huge success behind it.  The problem has been that the WoW clones have been cheap knock-offs of WoW. They have all of WoW's vices and none of it's virtues. WoW vanilla was a great game and it was commercially successful. Why the heck would you not want to copy that? (barring insanity or an overwhelming fear of victory).

 

  I gave up on WoW with Lich king, I will never return BUT no other game I have seen has managed this level of quality. Their worst is far better than everyone else's best. That is an indisputable fact. Most games since have had the single selling point, "We are NOT WoW" and have put forth crap.  The only thing that has saved WoW is the gross incompetence of ALL the competition. They listen far too much to the "Hardcore" niche market and can't figure out their failure.

 

  I'll say it again WoW vanilla was a great game that had universal appeal, feel free to clone it, BUT get it right.

I believe you are right, many games fail because they are just poorly made, not because no one likes WoW clones or no one likes sandboxes.

There are exceptions, like City of Heroes or Tabula Rasa and sometimes games just get old and outdated.

Myself, I don't wait or believe in an upcoming holy grail mmo. I just hope it entertains me and I got what I think was my money's worth. High expectations is what game titles want you to feel. Since you basically rent it anyway when it gets old you move on. Remember you stop liking it not the other way around. When a court jester stops entertaining his king, off with his head.

Jesters should probably form a union.

Well, you won't see anyone here disagreeing with you.... We are all SICK and tired of WOW clones

 

But for all our sake, I really hope you're wrong on ESO-- if that bombs I will have truly lost all hope for MMOs.

 

I already disagreed and so did others.

I don't agree about ESO. If it fails, it was because the Developers turned away from what made The Elders Scroll unique in favor of the Same old Same old.

If it fails it means MMO consumers are tired of the same and want something different. That is a good thing.
