I'm just curious to what it was in Obsidian games you enjoyed so much: Was it the terrible camera and bugs in Nwn2? The unfinished nature of KOTOR2? The unbalanced gunplay, broken stealth and borderline retarded AI in Alpha Protocol? Bugs, glitches and broken gameplay elements in New Vegas? The abhorrent co-op and muddy graphics of DS3? I would love to know.
i had absolutely no problems with NWN2 when i played it right when it came out. loved it since it was much closer to Baldur's Gate than Neverwinter Nights 1 was.
why don't you get off your high horse for 2.5 seconds? so their games tend to be faulty in some regards. big deal. does that make them entirely unenjoyable? are you seriously going to tell me that F: NV cannot be enjoyed? then why do most of their games have a sizable cult following, including what's generally considered their worst game, Alpha Protocol?
lighten up, Francis.
Aaaand you are completely wrong. As in completely wrong about everything except reusing their engine.
Edit: Was I trolled and reacted to bait? Dunno.
don't worry about it. you've just made the best post this thread is likely going to see.
See the post I wrote 2 up from your own and see that I like many things about Obs. games but Nwn2 was panned by many critics for being buggy and having a bad camera (see Gamespots review). Great that you loved it and had no issues but that doesn't mean that the rest of us were that lucky. As for NV I'm 85 hours into the Complete Edition right now so that answers that but again my enjoyment is despite the bugs, crashes and horrible balance of that game. It's not for nothing that Obs. have a reputation for releasing buggy games you know.
I simply take objection to how we debate in the gaming community and why it always need to be this polarizing thing as in black & white rather than shades of Grey.
Frankly put, if the thread starts with such a polarized title as this one did, with no explanation given about why he thinks so and not one argument to back it up in his first posting - he's not looking for a civilized debate. He's trying to add fuel to the fire to see how big it gets.
Also, you may have missed it since it was down rated, but check back with his third posting
in this thread - especially his answer to Coelocanth.....
Yes, it can be hard to know when someone is just being snarky and when they are trolling - i like to give people the benefit of the doubt and believe they have the best of intentions. But who knows with the OP?
