It's the awesome sound effects that sold me.

So you're saying a PC game looks best on PC?
And developers might not yet have a full handle on how to best utilize the new consoles?
I won't have you throwing around these outlandish and totally unreasonable statements.
It looks really weird! But Sony and Microsoft already have the 4 trigger, 11 face button, two stick ting down. I'm glad Valve is trying something different, and I'll be extremely interested to see if it actually works out.
I'm not surprised Apple are doing this. Their App Store has the perception of being more curated, and of higher quality than the Play store, it makes sense that Apple would spend money on title exclusivity to keep that perception alive and well.
It's really strange that people's primary complaint is that you can't share a game with someone and continue playing a different game.
Let's look at the issue for Valve here:
1. Valve needs money to operate
2. If no restrictions on access to games that other users haven't purchased exist, Valve and other publishers are going to lose money, because one person is charged, and 9 others are given a free, unadulterated game.
4. Profit... or lack thereof.
You can't just say "Well I want all these rights to play these games", when you just don't own those rights, for better or worse. It's a little depressing, but Valve is kinda being generous by allowing non-purchasing users to play the entirety of the game for essentially free - even if that player is not earning cards or achievements for their own account.
"carolyn petit we get that you are part of the LGBT community but dont use gamespot to corrupt the viewers mind, you truly are disgusting Carolyn."
Holy shit man! I take solace in the fact that those kind of comments are the vocal minority... I hope.
I absolutely had a 10/10 experience with Metal Gear Solid 4 at the time, but I can say with certainty that it will age dreadfully, and if I were to go back to it now, I wouldn't have nearly as good a time with it.
It was exactly the right game for exactly the right time in my appreciation of video games and the Metal Gear Series, as well as the PS3's lifecycle and industry mood as a whole. Those 10's were from reviewers who were desperately needing something, and in Metal Gear Solid 4 they found exactly what they were looking for.
It is a game that I loved, and never need to play again.
