I was reading a comment on my entry about Too Human being a recovery tool for WoW addicts and how people have these insane expectations of games because of the hype machine. Now I'm not gonna say that i don't listen to the hype cause i do. But most games are a let down because of it.
The same publications that do huge articles about how much we have to look forward to this game or that game, end up bashing it in the end.
Perfect example is all the hype that was going around MK vs DC , we pretty much all know the game is gonna suck. The problem is with the huge success of Dark Knight people will probably spend their hard earned money on it purely to play as Batman (lets also be realistic here the best part of Dark Knight was in no way Batman himself) .
Sometimes i just want to read a preview that goes like this "We expected this game to be great, it had a great developer , it had a great publisher, blah blah blah... but it just sucks. I would suggest not even paying attention to this."
Now granted some people claim one mans trash is another mans treasure , but video game land doesn't work that way folks. For the most part a sorry game is a sorry game.
It's like having that boss that is always optimistic about your job.. sometimes you just want to tell her "SHUT UP BITCH THIS JOB BLOWS AND YOU KNOW IT!"
