"For the statisticians among us, Ubisoft notes that shooters make up 30% of the industry, while driving games make up 8%. This explains, the company noted, why Ubisoft will be more shooter focused in coming years."
So, wouldn't you want to make a racing game and market the shit out of it and be slightly unique and make more money, rather than dump an indistinguishable shitty FPS product into a sea of indistinguishable shitty FPSs in an oversaturated market?
Might be top 3 in the worst games made for a next-gen console. Everything about it is pretty bad. First console game I've ever seen where you have to open a dev-console to turn off grass textures just so the game can go above 15fps. Everything about the game is just horribly done. Story, voice acting, animations, coding, features.. everything. I seriously cannot believe it got approved for public release.
Think about the number of open world games you've played. Now think about how many of them actually managed to make you feel like you were a part of a living, breathing world.
This is so true. I remember getting GTA3 on release morning, before it had all the hype. And I remember, after a day of nonstop playing, just standing at the docks on the first island watching the sun rise, and thinking, "Wow. This is amazing." Never really had a moment like that with a game since then.
