  1. Obsidian historically is guilty of very buggy games. PoE has been better than most of its games. I have had some issues, but on the whole not too bad. Acting like this game is horribly overridden with bugs is not right. They have fixed a lot of problems as well.
  2. I was sure CoD already had one of those ... Considering that PoE is very explicitly meant to be in the tradition of games like BG2 and PS:T, which had romantic subplots, I feel like you might be misrepresenting the nature of this discussion just a little bit. My undeerstanding is Infinity Engine games are the inspiration for this game, and there are more games with that engine that do not have romances. BG1, IWD, and IWD2 each come to mind. Romance was not part of all IE games, and that just further makes my point. It's not somthing to have all the time.
  3. Romance in games is fine, but the parade of people who ask for almost every rpg to have romance options in it is exhausting. Not every game needs it. There are now plenty of games that do. Why is it that just because a game is labeled rpg that means it needs romance? That's my problem. If a developer does not want to do it and people want it anyway all they're going to get is a half effort because they're not into it. Take the romance when it exists and stop asking for every game to have it. I'm not necessarily saying you are doing this. Just speaking to those that do.
  4. How about if people want a game with romance go find a game with romance? Stop asking for games without it to have it shoved in via patch or expansion? Maybe I'll go on some Call of Duty forums and ask for romance options.
  5. Sadly no Obsidian intentionally left this out of the game, it was a mistake IMO as we both know how Romance adds to the overall entertainment factor But on this forum you will find most people don't like Romance or they feel it somehow demeans the overall value of a game ...yes its also a mistaken view but trust me you won't change peoples minds on this forum..." you can't teach an old dog new tricks " and all that How is an opinion a mistake? Because you disagree? Poor reason imo.
  6. So? I still say it's arbitrary to be fine with "playing in a fictional world," interacting with fictional characters in a fictional setting, but then sneering at people for requesting different types of fictional interaction. You wanna talk about "human intimacy"? There's different types of intimacy besides romantic or sexual. Forging just about any type of affection or emotional bond can count as "human intimacy," and just about all video games with written characters (with or without scripted dialogue) incorporate that illusion. When you feel emotionally warmed or charmed when your chara
  7. Faerunner, it's because one is simply playing in a fictional world. Another is replacing human intimacy with initmacy with a computer game character. If you don't see the difference, I'm not sure I can make you see it. There's a place for it in games, but when people are asking for it over and over it becomes about the romance and not the game itself. It's becoming more and more like a merging of Baldur's Gate and Leisure Suit Larry. I think romance should be added value, not the focus of the game or DLC. Romance DLC excludes those who want to play more of the main plot or an extension of tha
  8. I really hate these replies. It's called a ROLE PLAYING game. Meaning, you make believe stuff. Like, for instance, that you are some hero that fights dragons and undead. Or, maybe you pretend you're a gambler that is willing to risk it all, when you've never played a game of cards in your life. So, personally, I don't understand why there AREN'T romance options. If you want to hit on that hot paladin chick with feathers, why shouldn't you be allowed to do that? What if, as crazy as it sounds, you actually ARE attracted to her, based on how she is written, or is voice-acted, or, however
  9. Don't care would have been the right option for me as well if it existed when I voted. Should the POE that was released have been more appropriately considered Early Access, rather than marketed as a finished product, based on these comments: "Since the release of the game with have fixed around 1000 bugs with the help of the community." Why were 1000's of bugs in a game that was released as a finished product? "There are many of you, with many different playstyles. It isn't something that we can easily replicate on our side so we will gladly take any help that the commun
  10. Can't we have an RPG without romance requests? They're imaginary people.
  11. Romances used to be a nice part of RPGs, but now people want romances for everything. Is this suddenly a Bioware game?
  12. A lot of ifs for something we don't know the first thing about. Not what it is, not when it is to be. And most of the ifs are bs from the community.
