    It's not even saying it's terrible, though

    But the attitude that "you need to accept that your favorite game is shit!" is so condescending I want to punch someone, holy shit

    As if it being bad is somehow something you have not clued in to yet and will understand one day, as opposed to the fact that you just like it

    It's weird that I see it constantly thrown around for FFVII, but I never see "You need to accept that Half-Life 2 was shit and Half-Life 3 will never happen," for example

    whatever the dumb thing with the spoon was running around and then he died and I was like, "hooray!" and then I found out online that he didn't die permanently and I was like "well fuck this, then" and traded it in towards...I don't even remember, maybe wind waker

    I am really sad about Half-Life 3.

    Because I love, love love Half-Life 2, but when Half-Life 3 comes out? Man, I can't even tell you who is doing what in that game anymore. And I used to know like every little lore detail. It's just been too long.

    Finally watched that Uncharted 4 video

    I love how Uncharted was the logical progression from the Tomb Raider series, and then the new Tomb Raider was the logical progression from the Uncharted series, and now I watch this trailer and here's Nathan Drake totally doing the rock-wall thing from the new Tomb Raider

    These two franchises should just keep building off of each other forever

    Hopefully they put some of the upgrade stuff from Tomb Raider into Uncharted 4

    it should just skip forward in time a bunch again with only minor references to 2

    much like references to black mesa in 2.

    That would be a good way to reset the story.

    That would be a great direction, but also not sure if they can do it given the cliffhanger that Episode 2 ended on, but, Valve are a creative group, they can think of something perhaps.

    The prologue of 3 could be G-man making reference to Gordon thinking he was freed by the vortigaunts but only because G-Man let him think that.

    I enjoyed playing half-life 2 a lot, though I don't think it hit me in the magic way it has for others

    I hope there's a third one for the people that are invested in it, though

    I hope a new Infamous will be a thing. It's the only game in town for open-world superhero simulators at the moment.

    X-2 and XIII-2 were good games.

    @Stilts‌

    Both sequels are bad.

    But at least 13-2 is a somewhat entertaining kind of bad.

    Instead of the insulting kind of bad that 10-2 is.

    Saints Row 4 is a superpowered President simulator, not a superhero simulator.

    An important distinction.

    I should just write an essay about everything 10-2 fucked up, so I can just link it whenever the topic gets brought up. Exorcise some of my demons.

    One that that makes me want to see a Half-Life 3 is that it's been 10 years since the original (and 7 years since the last episode) so I'm pretty interested to see what Valve would even make today, on modern hardware with like a decade of FPS evolution since the HL2 formula was established (and lets be real, the episodes didn't really evolve that formula much). Because I really doubt they just make another linear shooter shooter where you go from battle to unskippable in-game cinematic to battle to setpiece.

    If they were into that, we'd probably have gotten Episode 3 by now.

    I'm okay with that, if it is well done. Isn't that basically the new Wolfenstein? That was really well received, yeah? I still need to play it.

    FFT absolutely has a better story and I'll always hold it up in the pantheon of jurps for that regard

    but FFTA2 is infinitely more playable and accessible

    Valve is never going to make another single-player campaign again, and that's such a bummer because they are probably the best level designers in all of games

    Wolfenstein is absolutely a linear shooter

    it's a very good one, but it is one

    I always though bungie levels were a giant boring mess.

    Honestly Valve levels until Portal weren't great either.
