Researching Your Games: You're Doing It Wrong

To me, buying a sixty dollar game is a pretty big investment to me, especially when it is a pre-order/new release. However, this is because of my lack of funds right now, so it might be different to other folks. I get frustrated with some of these people that get upset with a game that is not what they expected or the quality of the content isn't what they assumed the product would be. You know what I say to these people? STFUJPG

The one particular game that stands out to me is Brutal Legend, one of my favorite games of last year.
Now, I can see people going in thinking it was going to be a straight up hack and slash game...

However, it actually turned out more like an RTS type...

Now, I research the hell out of games that I am excited for. So I knew what I was getting into when I picked
Brutal Legend up. I was excited to see other people on my friends list later that day also start to play it. The day after that however, they went back to playing Halo or Call of Duty. I was curious, so I asked what they thought of Brutal Legend. Their response: "Man, it sucks! I thought it was going to be a slasher but it's actually a gay RTS!". I heard many colleges give a similar answer over and over again. However, some of the blame is also on the marketing department for Brutal Legend.

There are also some otherr games where the same thing has happened such as Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, Mirror's Edge, and Overlord. So I guess the point of this blog is... don't waste your hard earned money on games you are not fully informed on! Oh, there is also this thing called "renting" that I use, you should try it too!

About SuperMonk4Everone of us since 12:33 PM on 12.21.2008

Hey, I'm SuperMonk4Ever AKA Broheed AKA Shut Up Monk AKA Andrew. I have been a part of the Destructoid community since 2008. One of my good friends introduced me to the site where I started out in the forums. Meeting and playing with some new awesome friends, I knew I wanted to make Destructoid my internet home. I even tried to make the community a little better by helping out with Friday Night Fights on the Xbox side! I have made many good memories with a large amount of awesome Dtoiders that I will never forget. From being on a couple podcasts to going to my very first convention at PAX Prime in 2012.

I have stepped away from the community for a while as my personal life took hold of me for a while. I want to have that feeling of community once again and work again on my writing. So, I have come back. To those that haven't met me before, welcome.
