opinion on game series
Posted 7/1/08
When you look on the forum about games, you see alot of criticism about game series and how some seem to want them to end. Examples would be final fantasy, halo, grand theft auto, devil may cry, guitar hero, etc. What im here to say is basically why should they stop? Alot of these games have great stories and many people love them. The reason they dont end is because they dont need too. im one of those people that goes and sees a movie and if its good im sad that it is over. That is why i like series cause it never has to be over, it just keeps on telling the story. Sure i can understand if u get tired of it and want to move on to something different, but yet if u still liked at least some part of the story u shouldnt criticize it. Like final fantasy for example, some ppl may not have like ff7 but yet if u liked ff8 then u have no right to criticize the series. As long as you liked that one game of the series, you see why many people still love the series. They hope to see that elements of that game take part in future titles for the series. Whatever the reason may it be the characters or the story or even the gameplay, if one person likes any of those i know for a fact that they would want to see those element of the game somewhere down the line. One last thing i would like to say is the series provide escapism. A game is something that will take us out of reality and put us in a world where we can do what we dream of doing. Yet when the game ends so does are dream. That is why series are great because even if are dream ends when we beat the first game, we just wait for the next one to come out and then your dream may continue. Im tired of writing at this moment and im pretty sure that when i come back ill have to deal with a bunch of people saying this or that. Untill then ill think go get a pizza or something.

it's the reason because they're so big that games such as the ones you listed above get all this criticism, I agree with the fact that games as such should not stop because of the fact that I enjoy them, and well for the people who don't, they don't have to play them. and sometimes it's not the fact they don't like it, it's because some of the games are highly overrated(like FFVII) and take far beyond what it's worth. There is no game in this world that is perfect and they always get criticized or people will always point out flaws, that's just life. on an end note: one shouldn't care about another opinion(s) on a game as long as you enjoy it.

EDIT: HOLY CRAP!!! THAT'S ALOT OF POINTS YOU GOT THERE!!!!!!

i like what u said about people being critical and yes i know for a fact thats how people are and always will be. in the end though i still dont feel ff7 was overated. It may not be the as great as it used to be but back then people thought it was amazing and to this day i still like the story. Its like star wars 4, 5, and 6, they may not be up to date but when they came out. it was the thing to die for.

Dude, use paragraph for fuck sakes; the enter button is your friend.

There are 3 things I have seen trough empirism as of why people do that.

1. Either they simply don't like the game and tries go come up with an excuse to justify their opinion. (Rpg vs Fps fans, vice versa).
2. Hate the over-obssesed fanboys that puts the thing on a piedestal and whorship it while overshadowing other not so famous bu better games (that they like) and then takes it out on the game. (Like you do to Narutards/Bleachtards or FFVIII fans).
3. Or the fact that people have forgotten to just sit down and enjoy a game instead of critically watching and trying to find flawes and then writing those petty reviews. There are also times when the game in fact suck.

I lol'd that people tend to put most of their attention to his CR points, which is probably not an important thing.

Anyways, this is an open forum and Criticism is one of the basic elements that should be used in a forum. Yes, you can say whatever you want. I don't have a clue why I don't have the rights to criticize such stories due to the fact that I hate it and probably don't like a thing about it.
Also, to what you're stating, you're saying that most critics usually jumps to conclusions and without a biased information on what they're saying.

some game franchises need to end. because more often then not a company plays on its previous success then the quality of their games either stops increasing or just gets worse, and the only people that will still play them are the retarded fanboys.

I'm sorry but i believe that all series should come to an end at some point. Sure sometimes it could be sad (i guess) but you should be able to deal with it. Like gnomeonfire, i agree that games usually tend to get worse as the series goes on usually because they do tend to play off of its predecessors success.

Most of the time "Well Known" series keep going because they make money, which to me is not a good reason to keep them going. I think the company that has a good series going should end it on a high note while they have the chance, then they should come up with something new.

It truly irritates me when a company "Milks" a series for all its worth. For example the Halo Series, number 3 was supposed to be the last but now we know they are going to make a number 4, wtf!?!

I dont know why companys dont make new franchises, it seems like they're afraid of failure or that nobody will play new games. IMO a company with a successful series has enough loyal fans that they would play a game because of the Company who made it not the damn Title on the cover.

OMFG!! How did you get so many CR points...
But I agree with you that some old games might be considered boring or the graphics are horrible but back in the old days,they were considered to be the best.

One series that I think deserves to go on is LoZ.Come on,Twilight Princess is so cool.

For me it's usually hearing, "Holy shit, this game is the BEST GAME EVER. ZOMGWTFBBQ."

Play it, doesn't meet up to my expectations, then I get a bad opinion of it.

That or, the game actually just sucks and/or is just uber over hyped. i.e Halo series. Nothing special about it. It's overhyped and mediocre.
