Day 66: Attract

2 replies 101 views Edited Nov 8, 2012

**bleep** the pre-order costume polls for the day, they can wait. It's story time kids, get near the fire, and Timmy, don't stick your hand in again, you **bleep**. Let me take you back a year. October 25, 2012. I had just gotten Battlefield 3, a game I was very much looking forward to, when something happened.

 

GTA V.

 

For some background info, Rockstar is my second favorite developer in gaming. I've 100%'d GTA IV, RDR, 99.9%'d Bully, and got around 85% on San Andreas, my second favorite game of all time (if I count the R&C games as one entity).

So when I was about to pop in my BF3 disc and enjoy it for the first time, I heard about GTA V's announcement. Literally all care I had for BF3 dropped immediately. Of course, I still played it for most of that day, but my mind was on GTA V. What could they be doing? What's the trailer going to show?

 

Fast forward a little over a year, and GTA V is FINALLY getting some info released. Needless to say, I've been excited for the Game Informer article. So when I searched on GamesRadar for snippets of that article (I use GR for my primary source of gaming news, because they don't have a bias, they've got a good rep, and they're quick to get info out). The first story that I see had me slightly curious.

 

GTA V, the game that stole the show from BF3 on that day a year ago, had a bout of gaming karma. PSAS stole the show from GTA V; the game I've had hyped for years was completely overshadowed by a game that had itself been overshadowed by GTA V for such a long time. You know what I have to say?

 

They did it. Sony **bleep** did it. They're actually advertising, and doing it WELL. My god. Somebody give me a clapping gif. They were able to, in three short minutes, take and absolutely **bleep** demolish eleven months of hype for THE 2013 Game of the Year. That commercial may have overthrown Michael as my favorite gaming advertisement - and I'll surely let people know if it does, but it's too early for me to be fully certain of that - and it's jumped handily into a group of the four game advertisements I've ever truly liked, next to Michael, the "Coming Home" ACIII trailer, and the GTA V reveal trailer (I'd actually neglected to count the GTA V trailer into that list until recently).

 

And, less importantly, I was completely, utterly, wholly wrong in what I said in one of the two weekly threads I posted yesterday. I felt the lack of advertisement didn't bode well, and within 12 hours they made me look like a complete **bleep**.

And I couldn't be happier
