McDonald's used to be fair as far as fast food goes. Now, though, it'll cost you over $5 for a Big Mac extra value meal, the meat in the Big Mac is smaller than the patty in a regular hamburger, and all of it tastes like crap. Plus, they changed their fry oil, so the fries don't taste right anymore. I no longer go to McDonald's at all (not that I ever went much).

BTW, anyone tried Hardee's Monster Thickburger yet? I had to try one just to thumb my nose at all the obesity claims and whatnot, and it was reeeelllly good.

Sorry...


MGS2. I was expecting a continuation of the story from MGS1, with some resolution to the FoxDie situation and Snake eventually having to confront President Sears (Solidus Snake). Instead I get a fragmented story where the most Snake I could squeeze in was 2 hours worth, and then I get an androgyeous whiner and ridiculously complex conspiracy theory (word of warning to all writers out there: the more complex a conspiracy, the less probable that it becomes). Furthermore, the second "half" of the game was a straight copy gameplay-wise of the previous game, with no real innovation. I bought a PS2 for that game, and had waited months upon months for it, and was so disappointed that I nearly swore off any MG game from then on. Thankfully, MGS3, though not as good as MGS1, was infinitely better than the horror which was SoL.

The game I've wanted more than anything is one I'll never see... Jefferson, aka The Black Hound. Sawyer's vision of that game made me weep with anticipation. Interplay's scrapping of it just plain made me weep.

they are called Carl's Jr. out here and no, i haven't had one yet. i eat CJ at least once a month so maybe today is my "thickburger" experience? :blink: they do not disappoint me. however, speaking of fast food derailments, why don't we (colorado springs) have a jack in the box or a white castle. that disappoints me.

Pool of Radiance: Ruins of Myth Drannor, Temple of Elemental Evil and NWN were all major disappointments for me (my on-topic bit).

Fable. They made it out to be this great RPG, and when it was finally released it did not meet my expectations.
Now I'm not saying it was a bad game, I still enjoyed playing it, it just wasn't as good as I expected it to be.

However Starcraft going TB doesn't make much sense because it's a RTS (as in Real Time). It's as if you propose they did Half-Life 3 turn based. However Fallout is a CRPG and there are examples of CRPGs with a RT based combat. So as long as they manage to make combat fun an balanced, anything goes for me.


Yes, but to go back to my SC example, there are plenty of examples of TB strategy games. RTS and TBS play different and have a very different feel. So you can't really imagine making SC TB.

Which is of course my point.

To say, well other RPGs are RT so FO can be too, is too say other Strategy games are TB so SC can be too. At least, in my eyes.

You CAN switch both games over, but it changes what they are.

Biggest disappoinments...

CRPG : Jefferson's cancellation

Shooter : HL2, specifically STEAM ( never again )

But most of all :

Cancellation of Sierra's Babylon-5 Space Sim.

I've never forgiven those SOBs for that one...

After ages of reading reviews on the net, and accolades on forum boards.

A couple of weeks ago, I finally tracked down a copy.

Planescape: Torment - impressive.

:)  What the... ?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

A bug ridden pile o' crap that was released prematurely, lacked originality (after Fallout it claimed so much and delivered less than the first), had no storyline or cohesion (can anyone really say that they gave a f*ck about the villagers after they got abducted?) and was just shallow as hell. I felt no sense of association or loyalty at all to any of the towns (though Reno was pretty fun with the Bishop women...:devil:).

Even BG2 was mildly disappointing as it had a far weaker storyline than the first and far less exploration and freedom too. BG ranks as one of my favourite games cos you could get sidetracked, explore vast open areas, dungeon maps like Firewine and generally achieve far greater flexibility. There were more varied party members available too who despite their dialogue shortcomings were nevertheless able to provide an interesting variety of personality and loyalty variables. When they started importing all the characters haphazardly into BG2 they forgot my favourite - what the hell happened to Shar' Teel?

I suppose another one that deserves special mention is B&W. I had such high hopes for this one and on the first island I thought it rocked. After that though it all went downhill and became frustrating as hell - on one map I got so irritated with a village that I levelled it entirely - I could never get my influence anywhere near high enough to reach any of the villages beyond despite everything I tried! As for the final level and the battle against Nemesis - they screw your creature give you bollox all resources and generally leave you stranded in a position from which expansion is near impossible - I gave up after 30mins started deleting the save files left, right and centre (within the game not the directory) - those that survived were all corrupted so regardless of map my creature was the evil knee high midget he becomes on the final map - the game is f*cked. Nevertheless, I am hoping that B&W2 will be much better without the bloody limits to influence - I'm hoping that only enemy towns might be off limits giving far greater god like flexibility in movement alone. I have high hopes for B&W2. Watch this space - if I am disappointed it will likely receive a torrent of abuse on this thread!

hmm I remember playing Freespace 1 .. then 2 came out and it was the best game I ever played (back then), ended in a TOTAL cliffhanger .. but a third was never made .. that was the darkest day in gaming for me .. I still have scars on my soul .. :devil:
the story was so great, but it was like Star Wars without "Return of the Jedi" to finish the saga .. even if it had been crappy it should still be there!
