I see a lot of Dragon Age 2s, Resident Evil 5s, Crysis 2s and other pretty decent games, if a bit disappointing. Did you guys really never buy anything worse than that in your life ? I wish I could say the same. I bought my share of awful, awful stuff. Brute Force comes to mind, Turok Evolution, Jurassic Park on the Psone, Fester Quest on the NES.
Dragon Age 2 ? That sounds like the best game ever made compared to some games I've bought over the years.
Yeah, I'm trying to figure out if it's the recency effect, just younger people posting here, or some kind a weird "I'm cool if I say I'm disappointed with something everybody else likes" angle.
I've been buying bad games since the Atari 2600 days, and man, have I had some truly nasty crap. Earlier in this thread I mentioned how I actually bought, with my own money, as a 10 year old, a copy of E.T. for the 2600. Not long after that, I was buying bad games for the C=64. Later, I'm right there with you on Fester Quest for the NES (LOL). In those days, we had no game trailers, no demos, no internet to research a game. Shocking levels of disappointment were the order of the day.
How people can list any of today's AAA titles, I don't get. Then again, maybe all they're buying is AAA titles?
