not really, there haven't been any games in the style of what rage what supposed to be in recent memory.Guest said:
I think most people (that think about these things) expected as much. id don't make games anymore, they make engines. Rage was never going to be anything more than an elaborate tech demo. I mean, even the setting - a generic mashup of various games of recent years - looks more like something that Nvidia might knock up to showcase a new graphics card, rather that something people would actually like to play.
I can't agree more. It seems developers don't even care about what they are producing... It's most likely the publishers fault that these games are being pushed out with so many problems because of their "corporate deadlines". But really, is there any developer that sees a game as a form of art and want's to perfect that art and not just as a revenue stream?TomSEA said:
Hoo-boy, I'd sworn off pre-ordering games after being burned lately by a couple of games (Crysis 2 and Silent Hunter V specifically), but was sorely tempted to pre-order this one. Glad I didn't. There was something about the previews and trailers that just didn't "seem right."
Like many other games that have been released this year and have turned out to be big disappointments, I'll wait until it hits the Steam bargain bin sometime next year.
