How on earth do gaming companies get away with making previews for their games without a second of gameplay? It’s called a video GAME not a video MOVIE! I watched the preview for Assassin’s Creed today and felt like I was watching a sequel to DANCES WITH WOLVES.
I mean seriously…what’s the difference!
It didn’t look like a game…it looked like a crappy full length cinematic movie…the kind where Kevin Costner shaves his head and starts dancing around with a whole bunch of wolves that don’t even like to dance.
Where did this confusion between movies and video games begin? When did we say, “Oh don’t worry, it’s okay YOU’RE NOT EVEN GOING TO SHOW A SECOND OF GAMEPLAY, that’s just fine….”
“We’ll let it slide!”
Am I the only person on earth who thinks the gaming industry SUCKS these days! When I see a GAME preview, I don’t want to feel like I’m watching a 6 year old sucking on a woman’s nipples in public….THAT SUCKS…
I want to see what the game actually LOOKS LIKE.
But no. We as consumers just let these gaming companies slip and slide with cinematics and short “feature films” that have NOTHING TO DO WITH THE ACTUAL GAME.
NO ONE WANTS TO SEE THIS SHIT.
We want to see this…
You would think that gaming companies would FINALLY get it through their heads after Final Fantasy’s hurricane Katrina at the box office….but apparently not.
They’re still living in a FANTASY.
A fantasy world where they can start advertising a game BEFORE THEY ACTUALLY START MAKING IT.
This preview for the new Assassin’s creed lacked a single second of gameplay in the entire “preview.” For all we know, they might have not even started on the game yet!!
This preview SUCKED ASS.
It sucked more than the band CREED.
It REMINDED ME OF BREAST FEEDING.
ASSASSIN’S CREED 3: COMING SOON
I’ve never been a fan if cinematic scenes in video games. If I want to watch a movie I’ll get on the Internet and beg people to help me figure out how to watch Netflix on my Playstation. In my opinion the coupling of movies and games is a horrible idea!
“PLEASE STOP DOING IT. PLEASE.”
I have some breaking news that’s going to freaking blow your mind away!
People buy video games to play them!
———->Not to watch them!<———-
Where did all of this NONSENSE begin?
I’ll tell you exactly when it began….
It began with Final Fantasy 7. This trend of overly using cinematic scenes to compensate for lack of actual gameplay.
Final Fantasy 7 was a great game – but it began this whole “movie in a game” syndrom e that we see in all our previews in upcoming games these days…
NO ONE WANTS TO SEE THIS SHIT…
WE WANT TO SEE THIS…
NOT A QUARTER OF THE ENCHILADA…
NOT HALF OF IT…
NOT THREE FOURTHS OF THE ENCHILADA…
THE WHOLE ENCHILADA.
I’m so angry I could take a dump!!!
In fact, that’s exactly what I’m going to do right now.
