But you buy consoles and games?

Obviously otherwise i couldnt play tlou

Doesn't make much sense to claim you don't buy tickets for movies that don't interest yourself, but then buying TLOU and Detroit.

And sure, we would love a printscreen with your gamertag and time play of both games.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Do you not want people to like you?

Maybe the issue is that you are getting satisfaction from seeing people's negative reactions to you quitting a critically acclaimed game after just five minutes... and then posting about it as if to brag. It was obvious you knew what you were getting into when you posted this thread, but then thirteen pages in you are still defending yourself.

The fact of the matter is that this is a troll thread. There's no reason for you to disclose details such as those that you did without having the intention of getting a negative response. You could have left the "5 minutes" part out is what I'm saying, but you found it pertinent information because you wanted this reaction. I don't think you ever had the serious intention of playing the game (if you even did).

Rather, you, as a human being, get enjoyment out of outcasting yourself. As I wrote the previous sentence, I had to sit for a few minutes (five, actually), and try and come to terms with that fact. It is difficult for me to grasp why this behavior might occur, but I suspect that there is some sort of complex in your mind that enjoys being treated poorly, and maybe it traces back to something that happened when you were a child. I know someone who likes to cry; as in, they purposely try and feel bad for themselves to make themself cry. Maybe you can relate. I wish you the best.

Sure thing. And you want us to believe a heavy user of VGC didn't know what the games were about before starting? And still sustain that Detroit and TLOU have same gameplay?

This thread is in need of work, yes.

That said Kirby, if you fix up the OP a bit, give some reasons why you felt the game wasn't for you (other than what is mentioned) and elaborate on what you think could be improved to win people like you over, I'll let this remain open. Otherwise, I can lock this and you can create a topic without all of the posts that focus on everything but what you're trying to discuss. 

Ex. I tried TLOU and quit early. Here's why...

I agree with this. To me, there are so many good games out there, why waste time with something you aren’t clicking with. Do you like pushing wooden pallets and laughably bad stealth gameplay? No? Then you aren’t missing much imho.

I quit Gears 3 after a similar time. Part of the first stage was enough for me to see it was the same tired formula so many games were taking last gen and I noped right out and went back to Guardians of Middle Earth or something else I was enjoying back then.

I really doubt you dropped of Gears 3 5min after pressing start.

That’s cool, wouldn’t be the first (or last) time you were wrong.

I would say many here are not even complaining about he not liking the game after 5 min (sometimes you can really hate something very fast, not that it would make sense), the biggest problem is he saying Detroit become human and TLOU are similar games.

You implied you purchased the game when you said "you cut your losses" in the OP.

There isnt just monetary loss, in this case im talking about loss of time or opportunity costs

To be fair TLoU is clunky gameplay wise.
