So, every single poster in this thread (myself included!) is a failure? Works for me! :DIf the only metric of success is 'made money' then pretty much every game listed thus far was a success. Even Firefall still makes a pretty good chunk of money. Enough that they keep hiring new people and expanding.
I count Titanfall as a failure because it sure was hyped as the next big Halo/CoD/Whatever killer and it couldn't even tickle those franchises, much less kill them. I think Call of Duty: Ghosts gets more people per day playing then Titanfall does, and Ghosts is considered probably the worst CoD game ever.
Using the metric of financial failure though: Grim Fandango, Psychonauts and Brutal Legends sure are paragons of horrible failure.
So what, are we judging based on games that 'Lived up to the hype', 'made money' or some other nebulous thing like 'Well I like it and enough other people like it so it must have been good enough'?
Keep it simple. Failed = not amazing.
Having gotten to the point where I was satisfied with my Skrim Mods, I took off for a far dungeon that was sitting on my misc quests tab.
Dragon Priest killed my Dog.
Nooooooooo Meeko I'm sorry.
Well now you just have to reload your last save, even if you lose a few hours of progress.
Or you could respawn him with the console command. But then is it really the same dog?
As a fan.................my ............ooooh.....oh oh oh.....
It looks like it could be a fun game, but really looks like the anime version of The Bureau: XCOM Declassified. Fan rantSpoiler:Section 9 was a covert ops team. They wouldn't get into major open firefights like that and the one time they did in 2nd Gig was against a group of terrorists that had no augments and had a police hostage.
Togusa would have been nowhere fucking near the front lines of a firefight since he's the most fleshy of the team.
The major's body punches just as hard as Batou's.
A real section 9 game would be somewhere between splinter cell and Deus Ex. Yeah, another The Bureau.
