And I could almost forgive them for it if the goal was to get their money's worth on a single open-world game engine, but they keep creating brand new, proprietary, in-house engines for every. Single. Franchise. Is there any reason at all that they couldn't have used the Watch Dogs engine for this? Or even Assassin's Creed? EA may never manage to sell a single Frostbite license, but at least they've wrung more than one game out of it themselves.Aiddon said:Ubisoft seems determined to only churn out one type of game nowadays, unaware that the sandbox genre is not some be-all, end-all apotheosis. Furthermore, the glut of sandbox games in the past ten years has allowed their flaws to shine through and are now open to scrutiny, such as the tedious commutes, the monotonous missions, and the atrocious pacing. And unfortunately no devs are really trying to remedy those issues.
Why do you care so much if other people like the game? How does that affect you personally? I think Far Cry Primal looks a boring shitfest, but i'm not going to insult people for liking it.Jeremiah Payne said:If your partner keeps snoring while you are trying to sleep tell them to stop playing the Division...
Seriously I went to watch a livestream of this game, was bored of all of the game ideas within 5 minutes of watching it so I asked what the streamer said they liked about it. They replied "It has survival aspects that makes it different than most shooters" to which I replied what are they, "Oh you have to go get items for civilians to survive off, plus you have to craft what you need to progress"...
JUST PLAY ANY OTHER SHOOTER OR SURVIVAL GAME YOU ALREADY OWN THEN!!!
Congratulations!Makabriel said:But... I'm having fun with it
He was also so bored that he didn't even mention going "rogue" in that game!JayDeth said:Yahtzee was so bored he didn't even talk about the bugs or the god-awful performance on the PC. I guess maybe he just thinks Ubisoft games playing like it's still in beta or even alpha testing just goes without saying.
I'm skeptical, considering that Ubisoft is saying the amount of money it made and not the number of copies it sold. When Halo 5 did this it turned out that it was counting the money made off of Xbox One bundles, and sure enough, similar bundles are being offered for the division.Adeptus Aspartem said:And apparently it's still Ubisofts best selling game ever. And people wonder about why the AAA industry behaves the way it does - because people buy the grey sludge anyway.
