Talking perhaps a little too fast in this one.

And, does it surprise anyone that something with a name ending in "light" has quality issues?

I find your consistently contemptuous attitude towards games you haven't even paid for quite distasteful, David-kyo.

Because we all know that paying for something elevates your capabilities as a critic by the factor of at least three oinks.

That's not the point, it's complaining about something that you really don't have the right to.

Well, I have neither paid for nor played this game, but I find it atrocious and think that the creators should be hanged!

Anyone who does not listen to me can no longer be called part of the human race, and also wants to have sex with Hitler's corpse.

Why thank you. It's obvious you are not a necrophiliac Hitler fetishist.

Eva Braun though...

A geeky friend of mine finds this game rather enjoyable.

I don't see why people still find Fantasy-RPGs intriguing? Is it the dungeons or is it the hands which shoot electric bolts?

I was invited to share a Warcraft account with a young cousin. Out of curiosity, I gave it a go.

The experience was not enjoyable. Killing bats and cattle for five hours just to kill more bats and cattle was as monotonous as it could get.

I thought as much after downloading and playing their demo client for about twenty minutes, of which I only spent five in the actual game world.

"Go there, kill some wolves, come back when you're done." my ass, I haven't been dawdling around for my whole life like a pro only to see my time-wasting skills being degraded like that.

Like Yahtzee I paid 3.50 for this and I'm not entirely sure I got my moneys worth. The art work is fine, the setting is fine, but the gameplay is so damn tedious I put it down a month ago and haven't picked it up since.

We have to earn a right to complain now? I think that if you pay for something, you're more likely to rationalize that you like it just so you don't feel like you wasted your investment. That's how Scientology operates: after years of church and thousands of dollars invested to get to the highest ranks, you've given the choice to believe in space clams and body thetans, or realize that your whole life has been a lie.

It could go the other way, too. If I had paid $60 for Mirror's Edge when it came out, I would have felt ripped off like everyone else. But I think it was well worth it to get it a year later for $10.

I got Torchlight on a Steam sale for dirt cheap too, but as much as I want to, I don't like it. It's just grindan. Very well-polished and streamlined grindan, nice graphics and no bugs, but you always know it's coming next, and it's always more of the same. It's like playing Wyvern Quest except totally serious. It's about as exciting as doing push-ups and gives you slightly less of a sense of accomplishment.
