Have you dropped games because of nerfs?

11 replies 301 views Edited Aug 18, 2013

I can think of two games quickly that I shelved after nerfs, BF3, not long after they turned the tanks into paper tigers and Guild Wars after the umpteenth skill "balance" wrecked up my builds (still won't touch ArenaNet products).

The developers of Halo and Gears of War, for example, were always pressured to release nerfs.

In both cases, the results pleased the community.

The ND community is the only community, that I know of, that is against nerfs in general.

have you played the last 2 uncharteds? if you did play at least one of them online from release to its current state, you would understand why most of us shoot down nerf threads nearly instantly.

 

 

 

Hello everyone! I’m Scott Lowe, the newest addition to the community team at Naughty Dog. As a longtime fan of the studio, it’s an absolute dream come true to work alongside the developers here and immerse myself in our amazing player community. It’s week two for me, so I’ve got a ton left to learn and get up to speed on. Nonetheless, I plan on posting on the forums as much as possible. You can also hit me up on Twitter, @ScottLowe, whether it’s to talk about games, the studio, or exchange GIFs. Beware, my GIF game is strong. -ND-ScottLowe

What's the difference between a fiasco and a debacle?

Yes I dropped Uncharted 2 after they nerfed the health, and I dropped Uncharted 3 after they **bleep**ed with the G-Mal.

I'm gonna drop The Last of Us if they do anything to any of the weapons in the game because that'll mean ND is going to eventually **bleep** up their entire game. Thank the Rockstar gods that GTA V is nearly upon us.
