For me this all sums it up: "Hating a game before ever having played it".
A lot of people hate a game because it is part of a specific franchise (CoD, BF), made by a specific developer/publisher (Activision), belonging to a specific genre (FPS, JRPG). Now I have to say a lot of games just dont...
The Death Squads were callen Einsatzgruppen if I remember correctly.
Himmler was a very bad guy, but the one person who was even worse was Reinhard Heydrich. He started tests with gassing Jews (or the most efficient way to remove the Jewish problem, as he would've said). Himmler was a...
Parents are responsible for raising their own kids. Not the government, not the school, not the neighbours. Parents are, and they should be punished in some way if they fail to raise their kids in a proper way.
Elaboration: I'm a teacher, and have had a lot of parents coming to me talking...
To be able to be the first one who plays it amongst your friends I guess. Or you're really really psyched for the game.
But you're not the only one. I usually buy these games later on for the same reasons.
1. Americans who use the word "like" between almost every word they say.
2. Soccertalk, pretentious babbling about the sport. Worthy of mention is Johan Cruyff, who, at 64, still hasn't mastered the most basic Dutch grammar.
3. It's not my thing, or "I'm doing my thing"
For me it gets annoying when you're playing a scout, medic, pyro, or anything with low health, you run around a corner, soldier pops up, panic fires into the wall or ground, and you die. Meanwhile the soldier takes no damage at all.
Besides that, TF is pretty balanced. If you're losing a...
I use a mic when playing with people I know. Otherwist it's just a game of Russian roulette. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Besides, my first language isn't English. For me that isn't too big a deal, but for some it means they can't communicate (for example 12 year olds)
I think it depends on the standards, and not the age. I've seen people in the US get their license driving like an idiot.
That said, I think it should be raised to 18, mainly because I don't see the point of people driving at 16. And considering weight, buying a bicycle may be the better choice.
I don't play FPS's online, so I can't comment on that. However, I've played WoW, and here are my observations:
I used to be in a guild that had no age restriction. There was some talk about it, but other than that, everyone with the right application was welcome. This led to our guild being...
Anything without variation in it. What comes to mind (considering recent games I played)
- Long industrial corridors in Dead Space
- Sewers in any RPG
- Small rooms that require a loading screen to enter and exit (breaks the flow)
- Dark rooms where you can only see darkness or a dark color
Portal is easy. The appeal of the game isn't the difficulty, it's the story (which is the best reason to play the game). Don't know if you have to be stupid to not complete the game, but if Portal gives you a challenge mentally, maybe it's time to find another hobby.
