That's so true! They don't even make most of the games they sell anymore.

Heh, because Gordon talks so much.

 

Because a written story needs talking?

It was about dialog. PC talking to NPCs and NPCs talking to PC. And Gordon doesn't talk. How should a real dialog with him look like?

 

"Hey Gordon, you got any idea what's up next for us?"

*You wave your hand*

*In a brief moment of silence, you look into the distance*

*You clap your hands*

 

- "That's exactly what I thought, Gordon!"

 

The only way I could imagine a "open world" type of game with a character who doesn't speak would be Rage or Borderlands. People talk to you, give you jobs, but you never answer them. And that's hardly a dialog.

I didn't assumed it. Rage / Borderlands aren't RPGs either. In fact, I came to dialog simply because of the Bethesda comment on the last page.

 

/Edit: By the way, just because a game has interactive dialog, it doesn't make it an RPG.

И погибе Српски кнез Лазаре,
И његова сва изгибе војска, 
Седамдесет и седам иљада;
Све је свето и честито било
И миломе Богу приступачно.

Casual gamers will be the death of us all

Well that sucks. If a solution is thrown in your face it kinda breaks immersion and sense of discovery. The way I play this kind of games is I do what comes naturally. Now I'll be in the mindset of not wanting to do this obvious thing spoon-fed for the benefit of idiots... But it's so obvious and natural... Ughh...

 

God I want to punch those people in the teeth...

Wait, people listened to the guards when they told them not to go somewhere?

 

In a game where you play as an assassin?

I think this is just a case of poor training by games that insult their customers rather than these people being outright stupid.

That part stood out for me, too. Gamers really are getting more dumb.

Really, the moment this hobby burst out as a mainstream thing - that was the end of the possibility of a game demanding anything more from a player than what a below average/mediocre person could provide.

The bad part is, we still haven't truly reached the bottom.

If devs can make the games they want to make and the non-braindead people want to play through kickstarters, publisers and their lobotomy-suitable games can go crashing down.

 

Maybe there is hope after all.

Well, this stuff is kind of difficult to get on the Internet and you're not new to controversial opinions about successful developers, so it doesn't really hurt to aks.

Not at all... It's mostly because they have as much time as they need to develop their games, something which very very few companies have the pleasure of.

 

So obviously they're lazy, and need to stop taking so much time over making HL3 ;-)

They're not lazy, they just want to do things right. And that takes time.

 

Valve > Starbreeze.

 

Obviously they're not lazy! Geez!

I checked out this shop. High prices and so-so stuff, imo. Personally wouldn't spend money on such merchandising stuff.
