I'm sure everybody is having fun (or at least I hope they are).
I grabbed a game that was technically impressive a couple of months ago. I won't name the game. Anyway, after playing it for about three hours, I realized that even though it looked good and was a key weapon in internet arguments, the game sucked hard. It just wasn't fun at all. I traded it in.
It's easy to get caught up in "Console Wars", bragging rights, graphics comparisons, etc. If the game isn't fun, none of that stuff matters. Wii gamers, Kinect gamers, PSN gamers, XBL gamers, etc. have all figured this out. "Technically impressive" does not equal "Good". Keep having your brand fun, people. It's the only thing that matters.
Not gonna say but I think I have a decent guess as to what game you're talking about. I was pretty excited for it but passed after playing the beta and demo extensively. These days if I feel that the game may be a chore in any way, especially if it's in gameplay, I don't take the risk. I can do a lot with 64$.
Well done, that was subtle xD.
