Doing menial tasks in a household setting, detroit had me hooked with the flashy intro but went downhill after that.

Anyway have a good night all

God bless you Kirby, and goodnight.

That's not how communication works. The things you say have implications. You got caught in a lie and because of your stubbornness or unwillingness to behave like a functioning member of VGC, you have to come up with excuses. The phrase "cutting one's losses" is generally about money, and in the argument of time, five minutes is such a small "investment" that any pragmatic individual (like the Don) would infer you purchased the game, and "cutting your losses" was that expense.

Also, in the edit you made in the OP you seemed to mistakenly reveal that you never played the game to begin with.

But speaking of money, what's the big payoff for you in making this thread? Do you at times feel depressed or bothered and feel that trying to make others feel the same way helps? If something is wrong, there are plenty of people on here that would listen and help you overcome whatever is troubling you. You must have expected the response you've gotten, and are now in a worse place than before. Maybe you'll impulsively create a new thread about something to empower you in the near future... that's my prediction. ;)

It is quite odd to not like something so much that you think after 5min you are already expending to much time on it, but take the time to create a thread and comment on it, probably costing him several dozen more time than what he dedicated to the game.

If someone took 5min of reading of a post of his to decide what type of person he is and stuck with that I'm pretty sure he wouldn't be pleased.

You really look to deep into it. Lmao
Anyway on the concept of loss, if i can see that the atmosphere isnt what i want within the shortest amount of time, i can save potentially dozens of hours, and using those playing games that are my taste. Those hours saved are profit, and spending them on a game i dont feel is an opportunity cost an loss if you will

Not sure why you are analysing me, since you cant even analyse the topic at hand properly

Edit: its the PSN+ game of this month, thus logically that would say something aswell with the timing of the topic

And how making this thread and using several hours of your time reading and replying here helped on your "cutting the loss of time"?

Tim + Apple as Tim/Apple as an easy way to save time & words.

That sentiment (while unpopular) is shared by Rich and Jack of Previously Recorded (which is was a gaming spin off show of Red Letter Media). Their take of Naughty Dog games since Uncharted 1 is that more than half of the time you're not playing anything, but watching cutscenes... which is boring in their opinion. And furthermore, even when you are playing the game, they feel that they are scripted events with next to no stakes or real challenge.

I've personally never played those games, however I have played the Tomb Raider reboot, which was modeled after that style... and something felt... off, about the whole experience. I had similar feelings about Castlevania Lord's of Shadow, maybe there's no connection. Anyway, I don't think that you're wrong, and you've got every right to feel that way.

Ah yes, who can forget the legendary gaming opinion of Rich and Jack, which is only bolstered by your own complete and total lack of personal experience.

"Their take of Naughty Dog games since Uncharted 1 is that more than half of the time you're not playing anything, but watching cutscenes"

Unbelievable. Maybe, MAYBE, if you set the difficulty to easy, and tried your hardest to make such a scenario a reality, ignoring every game play element possible, maybe, that is something that could be realized. It would be a high water mark for Rich Evens, eclipsing the time he laughed uncontrollably for 45 minutes watching movie trailers, while simultaneously eating year-old popcorn from the folds of his furniture.

So we all agree, ND is no good.

Ya know, this reminds me of how I got my copy of Bloodborne...

One of my best friends loved the setting and idea if Bloodborne...he buys the game...then calls me up before I get off work and says, "You can have this piece of trash, or I am trading it in."

I asked, "What don't you like about it? Maybe if we play together?"

He replied, "Nope, made it to the character creation screen and got major Skyrim vibes. Fuck this game."

And that is how I got my free copy of Bloodborne...True story!

Everyone hás the right to have their opinions. I played the first Destiny demo and i hated it, 3 years latter a friend challenged me to try again and play with him. Now its One of my favourite game of this generation. Opinions can change.



Considering the following facts that you
1.) Didn't put much time into the game, and you have easily spent 5x that amount of time just in this thread.

2.) Even after being given a chance to fix up the OP, you didn't do so.

I am going to lock the thread.

It is perfectly fine to dislike a game. And it is perfectly fine to decide not to play a game after spending 5 minutes with it. But a low quality thread is a low quality thread, and it is particularly so when the fix for said thread manages to be an even lower quality update.

"I had vibes" isn't really something that we can discuss.
