When a videogame comes out and it turns out bad like Sim City 2013 or Thi4f, I don't get happy looking at the fail, I get annoyed because it's one less good game for me to play.

I always hope that a new videogame will be good, even if I'm suspicious of its potential quality. I'd rather be pleasantly surprised than bitterly vindicated.

When a bad game comes out, I hope that the developers take the good ideas they had and implements them better next time.

Hey, jackass, Bad Game is that-a-way. I hear Tinkzorg has a thread about Konami's financial forecast for you to jack off to.

I would prefer for all games to be good and to please those who have purchased them, but when they turn out bad, all you can do is laugh and say "You should not buy this game, you will regret this!"

Cities Skylines looks p. dope but I still wish that the new Sim City had been really good, and I am sad that EA has been bad at making Sim Cities.

Some games are in fact very great, but are not the Citizen Kane of video games reviewers and forums have claimed, but it's still okay to like 'em!

There are people who want to see consoles become specialty equipment only owned by serious hobbyists, so all the "casuals" just become phone gamers, while console gaming is the sole realm of the "real gamer." They aren't concerned about consoles failing, they're in favor of it.

I find myself doing this with games a lot of the time as well. I even picked up Assassins Creed Unity for $10 off of eBay because I assumed it couldn't be THAT bad.

I fully expect Elf Help Book to say "gently caress you" at me for admitting this.

how soon into game making do you think developers realize their game is bad. does the realization hit them only after the game is done and they're like "oh no... this is bad! we can't ask for $60 for this!" or do they feel it while they're making it and it hangs in their thoughts through every step of the process poisoning their efforts
