It gets old fast, I'm already bored of it... I expected more since it has been hyped up so much. The same went for Titanfall, Destiny and Watchdogs, too much hype had built it up too much and I'm just let down. If this stayed under the radar, maybe I'd be enjoying myself... I dunno, it is hard to enjoy something when it was hyped up as more than it is.
I guess the industry has always been like this, I dunno, it just feels like breaking point for me this year. Maybe just too much has been over hyped and turned out to be complete let downs. If I had to pick a GOTY..... I can't; Mario Kart 8 and South Park were fun for what they are, but nothing has blown me away. Just been like bought a dozen games so far, played for a few hours each and then back to CS:GO.
I just feel we're being told what the next big thing is rather than being allowed to make our own opinion as a collective. Feels like the publishers just pay lots of money to get these games out there to all these websites and we have them shoved in our faces constantly. Yet if we were allowed to pick.. no one cared about Titanfall, it had some fake buzz around it from sites like these, but I do not know a single person who talked about it in my group of friends and everyone on the forums wasn't impressed either.
If Destiny didn't have the Bungie name marketed all over it, no one would care, it would be another Borderlands... it comes out and gets forgotten about. The weird thing I've noticed with destiny though is people have been told it is the next big game so many times that they're forcing themselves to play it. Like "it is from Bungie it must be great right?" then they play it over and over even though they constantly say the game isn't fun and keep complaining about all the flaws. Like Stockholm Syndrome or something.....
Maybe i just need black out all media and go into games that interest me when I see them, rather than having it dictated to me. I think that is why I love so many indie games now, I just stumble upon them on Steam and give them a go, rather than being told this is a good game and buying it because of that.
Evolve has one great idea, one that gets boring quickly and it isn't very fun for long periods of time. It is like a horror game, just too tense to really site back and enjoy, like how no one wanted to play as the humans in L4D competitive mode....... kinda kills that whole mode. Well Evolve is like that but it kills the whole game.
I cannot help but think if they just flew under the radar, it would have gained the right audience and done well within the budget and expectations. However it is being hyped to the point where so much more money will be poured into it and so many more people will buy it who will not like it... I just see a backlash happening and it being bad for the studio like we saw with Titanfall.
Any ways... I might be done with games for awhile I think, it has been a horrible year and I'm burnt out.
