- "Boring" is one of the most subjective complaints I have ever seen in any form of entertainment. Almost everything that I know of that is considered good by consensus has has called "boring" by dissenters. The Godfather, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Memento to name a few.

- The ending sucked? Were you expecting a "Happily ever after?" Let me ask seriously ask, did you think the ending of District 9 or The Road also sucked?

- Having an overused genre does not make a story any less good or bad. It's just as you describe it; overused.

 

The only complaint you have that has an argument basis to stand on is the ending. The other two are purely personal preference.


Could the genre being overused be used as fact also? There have been many Zombie games in the PS3/WII/360 gen and movies also.

Was I supposed to cry at the ending or something then? The only thing the game had right was the multiplayer.


So what if a genre is over used? It only means it's a commonly used plot device, it doesn't make it bad.

 

You didn't answer my question. My point was that not every plot needs a falling action that lasts more than a few minutes or a complete wrap up. Multiplayer never worked when I tried, I would always get stuck on geometry. I think it had something to do with lag.

It is fine that you don't like it and all, but if you think the theme of the game is "zombies" then it clearly went right over your head. Smiley Mad

GTAV gamers are the only true gamers in this planet.  If you dont play that game you are the worst kind of gamer and you should probably start thinking straight. 

 

 

I have seen this type of commentaries over the internet and even heard them on a daily baisis on PR.

A true gamer loves games. It shouldn't matter what genre or system you're playing. If a video games excites you are a gamer. I do understand where you're coming from though. I do wish people expanded their horizons a bit more.

@darkforcegod... I won't say u become a real gamer after plau gta, but... If you are a gamer and haven't played, u should really try it.


And i would also like to say to @sertyla that nozthe zombie theme wasn't overused, i guess it was to least used in any zombie game ever, but the most smartly. They really felt like some sort of danger to the player. I got goosebumps everytime i saw a bloater.

I have played GTAV I own it since day one.  Its just that people acted last year to GTAV the way that people act for COD.
