Forums - Gaming Discussion - Why are some people so negative towards the "dudebro" games? What do you think of them?

Some people, especially on the internet use the term "dudebro" for some games in a negative way, which includes the likes of halo, cod, bf, madden, killzone etc. Do people just not like them because they are more successful then there preferred genre title? Is it something else entirely? I enjoy alot of this so called dudebro games and don't really see whats the problem with them. They obviously appeal to a ton of people, just look at cod sales every year. Some titles may lack innovation like madden and cod, but they are still relatively enjoyable games if you are into those genres. Some people act like they are the plague or something. What do you think of them? Is it just the internet being the internet?

The industry needs games like Cod and Madden etc to keep growing, people can hate them all they like, but without them gaming would be trouble.



I love dudebro games

Platinums: Red Dead Redemption, Killzone 2, LittleBigPlanet, Terminator Salvation, Uncharted

Just a lot of betas hating the fact that COD and Madden is more appealing than their weeaboo niche jrpgs, and people who like dudebro games aren't "real" gamers.

I hate Call of duty, all the rest is ok.

To me they suck, I tried them and they are not my cup of tea.

I generally have great contempt for games that use dumbed-down adolescent machismo to try to sell their product.
And contempt is too kind a word for how I feel about Madden/FIFA.

Bet with Einsam_Delphin: I say a ground-up Wii U Zelda won't release in 2014. (Hyrule Warriors doesn't count)
Bet with fatslob: I say Watch Dogs Wii U will be technically inferior to the 360/PS3 versions according to Digital Foundry.
Bet with Einsam_Delphin: I say Monolith Soft's X won't release in 2014.
