    I'm in the same boat as the article.
    I'm old, seen all the gimmicks come and go since the Atari days. This is just the latest.
    While I don't know if it'll do well enough to keep existing a few years down the road, I do know it won't be the future of gaming.
    I don't care how well you make the graphics eventually, you will never get me willingly sitting for four or five hours (which I do often) of gaming wearing a helmet.
    Not only is that uncomfortable over time, but I don't find it very smart to have my senses so absorbed in a game that I'm oblivious to my real world surroundings since you never know what happens in life.
    VR will likely be like 3D movies. It's there, but didn't replace anything.
    I'd rather stick with my dualshock 4 playing games on my TV screen and see graphics, AI and framerates improve.
    Maybe I'm just old and stuck in my ways. Regardless, you aren't hooking me up like I'm a slave in the Matrix simply to play a game.

    @Kdevinco What do you mean we MAY finally see developers pulling Nintendo support? That's already been happening for years now.
    WiiU is only hanging on by Nintendo first party. Console's dead otherwise.
    I'll be shocked if Nintendo doesn't make themselves so unique developers can't sell on it again. We'll see.
    Innovative for the point of improving an experience is great. Nintendo has been innovating for no real reason other than to be different. They apparently never heard the expression don't fix it if it ain't broke.
    Nintendo will always survive and have a small, dedicated crowd. But the odds of having another Wii gimmick go trendy at mainstream levels? Not likely.

    I've been around CoD from the beginning and like the solo, not just multi and AW was one of the most boring by-the-numbers solo campaigns of the series.
    And the exo-suit drove it to feel closer to Halo than to CoD. Which I personally don't want.
    Not sure if this last thing is only me who cares, but AW also felt too clean in it's combat. I like that Treyarch brings the blood and more violent impact to those you kill. Again, AW felt more like shooting someone in a Halo game, while I like a more brutal feel.
    I can see how someone could like AW and it would have been, gameplay-wise, an excellent Halo game with minor CoD influences. But I stopped playing AW earlier than any CoD title. The first one in the series I brush off as not working for me.
    I am pre-ordered day one for Blops3 off of Treyarchs past.
    First 2 things I noticed in announcements were making sprint go away and allow you to keep moving full speed and the return of bloody kills and I smiled.
    Those things alone made it feel more like the series I loved, let alone my trust in how Treyarch has understood the "feel" of a CoD game more than anyone else.
    I know I have no interest in AW2 when it comes around.

    CBS are high if they think very many people will pay 6 dollars a month for stuff only by them. (Same with people like HBO and Showtime)
    Personally, I have Hulu and Netflix and have never had an empty watch list.
    Another service ain't happening unless they manage to be so good I'd cancel one of these others. There are only so many hours available to watch things.

    @roomtemperature Me too. It was cheap, but it worked.
    Damn near gave me a heart attack back in the day. Still the only game moment I can think of to truly make me hop in my seat.

    @nimzy They might pull it off. Disney's going to try anyway, with new Star Wars movies every year. And like Mike said, Marvel. Marvel is Disney.

    Excellent article. Though I likely find it excellent since nearly all of it is my same view.
    Unity got a a strange backlash. I had a day one buy of the PS4 version and, as pointed out in the article, bugs were there (I fell through the level 3 or 4 times before the patches, though they happened hours apart), but nothing much worse than most open world games.
    I understand calling a games flaws out, but Unity was attacked like it was PS3 Skyrim, which it was not. Skyrim was truly broken, Unity was playable. As well as it's bugs were patched fairly fast.
    I also thought Unity had one of the best stories, the whole AC twist to Romeo and Juliet.
    I'm about 25 hours or so into Syndicate and it's pretty great. Shame if it doesn't sell.
    It's only flaws for me is it needs patching. It's interesting that it's almost as buggy as Unity.
    I've had people fly across levels, severe clipping near rooftops, one carriage that actually started spinning in 360 degree circles and then fly off into outer space, etc.....yet most reviewers praise it as not being very buggy. The same who would say Unity was a disaster.
    It's a strange double standard in quality complaints between the titles.
    Also, Syndicate looks rushed. The graphics are a bit ugly compared to past AC games, like the last spot of polish ran out of time.
    Plus, ends up London was a terrible place to go for the series. While the level design is excellent for getting around, most the world is very plain and generic looking.
    Here's hoping they get to either India or China soon, as they heavily hint is coming. Because after the industrial ugliness of London, I want somewhere more colorful and flamboyant, more style.
    I've never burned out on AC. And I like that they don't simply carry over newly introduced mechanics, because then each game truly would be identical.
    I don't think the series gets the credit it deserves in managing to walk the line between being familiar enough to feel like an AC game while still adding new takes in places each game beyond just locales.
    It's a great series. Nobody makes quite as gratifying murder simulators as Ubisoft.Edited October 2015 by Unknown

    Did I read that right, Mr. Williams? You don't like but suffer through first person driving views in Far Cry?
    Always search the options out in a Far Cry game. Because you can switch the camera to third person when driving.

    Me, I love killing animals in games. Which is weird, since I never hurt animals or hunt in real life. I'm pumped for this game. FC4 was great. Based off that, I have faith in this.
    Also excited for a violent game without guns, just for varities sake in my massacres.
    I an scratching my head at how they managed to make the game so fast when most of their studios are all working on Assassin's Creed and other titles.

    @metalangel I've always played with the understanding the Assassin's are the bad guys who think they're doing good.
    But unintentional and well meaning bad is still bad. I think Ubi have done a pretty good job with that, fooling many players in not realizing they are playing the villians.

    The interesting thing is if Ubisoft hadn't done Jack The Ripper I'm sure places all over the web would tear them apart for skipping such a pivital moment in London during that time.
    I liked the slavery angle too, trying to overlay with something deeper back in 4....but I'm betting those of us who liked that are in the minority and it didn't sell much.
    If it had, Ubisoft is not one to ignore going the direction the money's at.

    Still, I'm into blood and guts. I don't mind going after a vicious serial killer. Especially when previews of the main game have all been positive. I was actually planning to skip the season pass, but the Ripper thing made me decide to get it.

    But then, I'm also someone who likes Unity a lot. My tastes never seem to be the most popular one.Edited September 2015 by Unknown
