I registered because of this post, and I'll probably get a probation/suspension/ban for it, but, whatever.lithium.jelly said:I think it's because RPGs are slowly turning into action games. Those of us who don't have ADD, and like to be pushed to think during our games are getting annoyed that there are fewer and fewer games for us each year, replaced by games for the boobies/explosions/"duuude!" crowd.
That post has to be one of the most ignorant, most self-entitled, full of ridiculous elitism I've seen, and I frequent the BSN forums.
What's wrong with action games? Do you have to have the ability to pause a game otherwise you can't make a decision? Do you lack the ability to change your strategy on-the-fly because something didn't go as you planned? Can't you THINK WHILE YOU PLAY instead of having an artificial game mechanic holding your hand so you can take a breath?
I don't even want to know how you'd fare on a RTS game, or a heavy team based FPS game, oh but wait, you must also have a complete hatred for anything multiplayer too.
I really don't know what's fucking wrong with the RPG crowd, I tend to find the most elitist of the elitist douchebags there, and you only help to feed that notion.
Oh, I know, it's YOU and PEOPLE LIKE YOU who are what's wrong with the RPG communities.
Good day, sir.
