With the launch of a new game in the genre we will typically see two contrasting arguments, those that like the new game and those that hate it. This is highly predictable and regardless of which side of the fence you're on from your perspective the argument you present is the correct one. Why does this happen? Because no matter how many games you play or how much hype surrounds them one thing is always constant...You.
You make the game what you want it to be. You decide if you want to invest time or money into it. You decide what you like. You decide what you hate. You are the predictable element and everything else is a variable. The point is if you hate or love a game and list your reasons for doing so unless the game itself is broken or unplayable ultimately some of the blame has to fall on you. You are the controller and in a virtual world you shape your destiny for better or worse.
