I actually think paid DLC is okay, but that is DEPANDANT on what they DLC does. I think the biggest issue now is that too many games come with too little content where games 'seem' broken up.

After reading what most people have said, it occurs to med we could define what were are talking about when we say PLAY CoD.

Some of us mean just the online multiplayer. Some of use mean the single player campaign. And some of use mean, some sort of re-imagining of what CoD is entirely.

I want Korea, but what I really mean is I'd like the campaign to be in Korea, and for that to be the multiplayer setting as well. To make that worthwhile I really think the campaign needs to matter again, and not just some nonsense someone at the studio cooks-up for the storyline with creazy weapons. I liked CoD AW, but I don't necessarily need rocket jumps and remote turrets in my game to have fun. That why something like a return to WW 2, Korea, or even an alternative history set in the 40, 50s, or 60s would be appealing.

I never got into Nintendo either. I played my first home video game system in probably 1976; a b/w light gun game made my Radio Shack. My first console was a Atari 2600, with all of its wood panel 70s swagger. I played my 2600, had access to an Intellivision and 5200. In addition I played a bit with an Oddessy II at a friends house. In 1984 I had an Apple IIc and a slew of games. Once I had a computer, especially and an Apple computer I had access to games and to peripherals that rivaled most consoles easily

So, really, that whole Nintendo things was not in my mind at all. My first computer was awesome, but even my crappy computers that followed could play more interesting games taht consuls were being given. What early PCs lacked in graphics they more than made up for in sophistication and depth. So I was a PC gamer, a deveoted one, during probably the HARDEST TIME in history to be a PC gamer.

I can respects what Nintendo made for games, but I have zero nostalgia for those games. Nintendo devotes have nostalgia for Mario, but I look back fondly on Silent Service or Sea Wolf. Their interest in Zelda, is my love of Seven Cities of Gold and Civilization. They played Mario Cart, but I played Zork 1-2 and Hitchhikers Guide. I think that's okay, they have their things and I have mine. We share different paths, but we share that we know these old games first hand when they came out.

Sure, any kid today can play old Super Mario Bros, but they didn't do it in 1985. Unless you have tried to play Super Mario Bros. as your sister screamed she wanted to watch MTV, so she could watch Tears for Fears' video "Everybody Wants To Rule The World" - then they haven't really played Super Mario Bros.

These are fixes we can all be proud of as people of a world wide community.

If you need to buy pre-build you want too look at companies like Maingear, Origin, Falcon Northwest, or Velocity Micro. They are 'some' other decent companies, but most of them I listed are very well known and do a good job. (Yeah, I don't include Alienware on there...their computers are ugly. Even aside from Alienware being Dell their computer are ass-looking.)

The trade off with pre-built is obviously the price of the system is "Cost of the parts" + "Few Hundred Bucks" for their work. In most cases, all the manufactures supply the same level of computer for around the same price. Most oif the choice comes down to what is being offered specifically and if you like their industrial design. (One note is all of the manufactures do have models 'shaped' like hexagons, or stars, or a giraffe's vagina....just avoid those models with the crazy shaped cases. Somewhere along the line, idiots with giraffes vagina fetishes, started wanting computers; thus all the companies offering computers that look like weird shapes - avoid them.)

@monkeyking1969: That's an unnecessarily aggressive response. Their opinion is clear and they want to create an open discussion with other users. Please say sorry and play nice.

@Phoenix654: It think that the more voices in support of a growing medium, that is often derided and used as a scapegoat, the better. In regards to this video and Penn Gillette, his recognition of a joke game being used for charity purposes and the support of the development of a new one is excellent! Especially from a preservation perspective.

No, its policy when you put up video. If you put it up there must be your own ideas and feelings to support it existence as a thread. I'm being helpful, since it really could run afoul of mods.

Why are you pretending you weren't being abrasive? There was zero reason to act authoritarian and basically order the OP to do something. Here, let me help -

"Hey, just letting you know, it's in the forum rules that you should add your own thoughts instead of just posting the video, the mods may lock this if you don't."

Not pretending, I wasn't being abrasive. I'm sorry that forums are so poor at presenting tone, but that's the case. You goofed.

I think time-will-tell with how good or bad The Division is overall. On the other hand, feel is about only 1/2 of what matter in my opinion. A shooting game is more than just how it movement and shooting, and The Division is a far deeper games that some other games mentioned. An online open world third-person shooter role-playing video game with survival elements IS a different beast, and there are other consideration beyond just feel that matter. It has to succeed as an open world game. It has to succeed as a survivals game. It has to succeed with it RPG elements.

As Jeff and Jason would say, "we have to do the science" before we rank anything. ;-)
