I agree on all arguments, but it is also the fault of those developers for accepting to do that kind of crap, thus sustaining the "gamers are immature boys" stereotypes and other tired antics. If you respect your audience, then you don't partake in this childish crap. You don't act like you expected something better and that you didn't know how this show has it been on previous occasions, so you can't have an excuse to do it...other than PUBLICITY, thus MONEY!

And, let's be honest here: without those stupid skits that, at least, managed to squeeze some kind of emotion or reaction, it would have been as dull and boring as a shampoo sellers or a Herbal Life convention.

And also, let's not forget the state of Hollywood, the music industry, TV shows , for that matter: with very few and notable exceptions, there is nothing but tasteless, imbecilic, childish and consumerist garbage for almost a decade, if not more

I agree with anyone saying that Bully was a great game. Such a great, unique experience, creating such an original world with actually memorable characters (of course, that yearbook challenge made them even more memorable) and that music was awesome. The story, that certain vibe, each character's background, those ever-conflicting factions, the backstabbing, the sarcasm, the humor. I still remember how hard I was laughing whenever I was hiding in a garbage can, seeing how various schoolmates or prefects were tripping on the marbles or getting intoxicated from those stink bombs I laid out for them and how they randomly picked on each other thinking they were the culprit. Oh, man, such good times...

That game stands proof that you don't need blood to make a great game. It didn't have the flash and the exposure GTA San Andreas had, but, to me, it had more soul, more personality. And it's the single Rockstar sandbox style game where I actually disliked the fact that the action/story opened up beyond the school court limits into the various surrounding town areas.

Also, The Warriors is the best tribute a movie, and especially that movie, could ever hope to receive. The characters' own personal background stories and the patches that Rockstar added to the original story made the game more interesting than the actual movie.

Both Bully and The Warriors deserve better HD remakes on all current consoles.

Yep, Norse mythology inspired RPGs and military shooters...just like 4 or 5 years ago.

And they say gamers want evolution, innovation, new genres, new stories and new ideas...my-my, how far have we come!

What's next: another zombie game? Another WW2 shooter? Another Warcraft MMO clone?

If the GAMEPLAY part of it is bad, then why praising this VIDEOGAME product?
If the story in it is so mature, then why they chose to tell it through anime, with supernatural crap on top of it?
Since when a love relationship is more mature subject than war, politics, economy ,history or even social issues? (bare in  mind the recent happenings in Norway or London)
If a block puzzle game is considered remarkable in 2011, then why bother creating games like Mass Effect, Bioshock, RDR, MGS, GTA, Fallout and such? Honestly, let's all make tetris games with Danielle Steel/ Hallmark movie romance dramas to them.

@Napalm: I'm with you there. This whole propaganda also made me feel like you said, "dirty", or "stupid" if I don't like anime or if I'm sick and tired of games treating real life issues in the most infantile and stupid way possible, while having the nerve of calling themselves mature and also pioneers worthy of praise in the genre. There is a solid reason why "nobody did this before", as the propaganda says: because it's stupid and even insulting. 
The story is like the strange wet dream of a 12 year-old basement-dwelling geek that had its first kiss and ,all of a sudden, he's fantasizing about marriage and babies. Who the hell is thinking those things like that, imagining men looking like sheep and baby monsters after a simple good ol' roll in the hay?  
Add anime cliches, childish improbable dialogue and a Tetris-style block puzzle game and  hooray! - IGN gives it a GOTY award in 2011 to a glorified pumped-up internet flash game!
  
Yeah, imagine what masterpiece of a game could have been if I could get those Atlus guys making a puzzle game after my prom night with 2 blonde bitches and not knowing which one left me with a sore strudel for 5 days....

@Gordo789: No, dude, I have a problem with internet propaganda insulting my intelligence by overrating a mere block puzzle game mixed with Sims and childish anime now, in 2011, and passing it as something groundbreaking or a highly intellectual and mature endeavor, that only true gamers play, unlike myself , Jeff Gerstmann and others , who are mere "bro", "casual" gamers (or whatever the staple is these days), and which don't have the brains to comprehend such a marvelous piece of Japanese entertaining craftsmanship...give me a fuckin' break!
 
Sorry, but I respect too much the creativity of the Japanese game developers to be mesmerized by an anime block puzzle game. And praising this garbage is like spitting in the face of those who created Metal Gear Solid, Silent Hill, Final Fantasy, Devil May Cry, Resident Evil, Ninja Gaiden, Ico , Shadow of Colossus or even the recent Shadows of the Damned. 
It's like praising the horse & carriage after you've been riding Ferraris and Lamborghinis - it's that ridiculous and stupid, for fuck sake!

The game already looks like it belongs into Crysis / Far Cry / Killzone league in terms of graphics, and promises to be like recent Fallout, Borderlands or STALKER games in terms of story and gameplay, yet people aren't excited?!
Oh yeah, I forgot, people these days are more into anime block puzzle games with sexually-confused emo guys in their underwear who look like sheep and run with pillows in their hands.

How can you make profit when you're asking almost 10 bucks for a DLC pack with 3 or 4 maps now, 5 months after release, especially  when Bulletstorm isn't Call Of Duty in terms of marketing and /or as an established title?

 "Why?" is always the key unanswered question in these stupid cases.
