If I want a great story, I'll read a book.

Uhm, with a comment like that I can't see how you were ever interested in Alan Wake. Plus, you're a barbarian :)

Im sorry anyone who thinks Wake had average graphics really did not see the game in hd. Ive looked over it a few times now and I am totaly aw struck and how great it looks. To all those people who kept saying the 360 graphicly is maxed out heres a slap in the face.

yeah. especially considering the story is about a writer. Honestly, when I first heard about the idea of the game, it reminded me of The Secret Window.

So MGS4 for you is just pure shit! You'd rather see a movie or read a book than playing it.

Yes. A barbarian I am. I dont read books. I eat them.

^There you go :) But seriously, this game was always supposed to be about the story and the atmosphere. I frankly never cared much for the hyping about its technical prowess, as long as it worked to give me the right feeling with those creepy outdoors.

Dude, check my post on the Sony forums where I am complaining about MGS4 cutscenes.

I like when a game has great gameplay and great story combined (InFAMOUS for example)... but if it's just all story and mediocre gameplay like Alan Wake seems to be, than I do not like that.

MGS 4 was good gameplay, BUT the gameplay seemed way too short compared to the hour long cutscenes. MGS isnt complete shit, but it couldve been balanced out much better IMO, like Uncharted was. Uncharted combined story and gameplay perfectly.

My neighborhood is creepy enough. If I want creepy outdoors, I will go outside.
