    Graphics are the least important thing to the quality of a game. Solid gameplay, story, etc ... all are much higher. You can have a pretty looking pile of crap, but it will still be a pile of crap. You can have crappy looking great games. Yes, graphics matter at some level, but graphics do not make a game.

    Also, realistic graphics =/= good graphics. They can be good, but just because a game uses realistic graphics doesn't mean the graphics are good.

    Also, the most games that have been hated on recently are hated on more because they are so close to good and failed on some level than are actually bad games.

    PoE is a garbage game, I hated the combat, the talent/skill/build system is a giant stemming pile of shit, and I interacted with less people than I do playing a single player game.

    Esports has done more damage than good for me in gaming, hots could have been a good fun game if they didn't aim to make it an esports, now its only okay.

    D3 at launch was fairly rough, but the changes they made and RoS made it a great game.

    The auto chess genre/games weren't fun, and I have no clue how they blew up so fast (but I guess that is why they have largely died just as fast).

    No, i don't want the politics i support in games either. It's always forced and super cringe when they do it. Especially the more specific and real-world analogue they get.
    Molyneux only had dreams going for him because his games sure weren't ever good or well thought out, and Roberts has been too busy milking whales with thousand-dollars JPEGs to actually make games for a decade now. I'll give you Gariott but that's one guy. I could name right now people like Id's Hugo Martin who is obviously passionate about what he does, or indie devs like Lucas Pope, and I'm sure I'm forgetting some or don't know them. It's all confirmation bias.

    Same thing for the politics. Won't elaborate as things derail way too quickly on that subject.

    Which is why console just need to support mouse and keyboard and become the go to platform for competitive gaming. I rather deal with Cronos/Strikepacks than aimbot. Actually.. if I am just going to use M&K on console.. why would I even bother going through Chronos/Strikepack which is more for giving controller players a bit more advantage.

    Some more spicy takes:

    Voice chat-only gaming streams/videos are more enjoyable to watch than ones with facecams.

    The general gaming community is less toxic (for lack of better term) than the game development community.

    Selling boosts in WoW, even for gold, should be a bannable offense, but it never will be, because it would nuke the WoW token economy, and by extension, Blizzard's cash flow.

    CEOs of big game companies are a proper example of "morally gray".

    That genres have space for multiple major titles.

    Lets take the obvious one, MMOs. Right now people like to compare Classic VS Retail VS FFXIV. Claim one will/is killing another, and celebrating it.

    The industry/genre is big enough for all of them to thrive, and if you are actively celebrating one killing the other, you are blight on the industry. People should be encouraging competition and choice, but there are so many people who thrive on telling people why Classic is killing Retail or FFXIV is killing WOW etc. If you think that, fine, but if you felt that your literal brainfart warranted enough to go onto a post and actually type out a novel telling someone their choice of game is wrong, you are an idiot and you are not meaningfully contributing to anything.
    We live in an era of "me versus them", an era where something is done that you don't like means you are personally attacked. People whine too much.
    Let us play video games and be happy.

    I would say this is more correct.

    Dark Souls series difficulty is overrated bullshit based in shit mechanics which are all mostly just "Monster goes WARRRGARRRGRRRRRBLLLAAARGGHHHH on your face" and are generally countered with just pressing the roll button at the right time. Very hard, much wow.
    Oh, and the lore, while not bad, is overrated too. Just because majority of NPC's try to be mysterious by mumbling bunch of old words with "deep" meaning about blood/souls/tomato juice does not make it a good lore, it is just an attempt to get players guess the "true meaning", so company does not have to spend resources on creating it.

    people who still play wow nowadays are just addicts that cant let go because they have spent so much time in the game/community

    trying to balance for this wannabe esport in WoW killed the fun of pvp.

    I mean, we've probably gone too far if saying a terrible game is terrible is considered shitting on it tho

    Every time I play a PoE season, I end playing the D3 season going on at the same time. Without fail, play through POE campaign, regret it, install D3 and have a blast.

    The last of us is an actual dogshit game, with a dogshit story. Acted by the two blandest fucks on the planet. With shitty combat to top it off.

    I too was like this once, but then PoE clicked for me. Now I can't even imagine playing a game as slow-paced as D3 :/

    This one got me. HZD takes more from Monster Hunter than Assassin's Creed.

    Wrath of the Lich King was one of WoWs weaker expansions and people look back on it fondly because thats when they started playing the game

    Mass Effect is just a terribly awful game series.

    Wotlk was my favorite and I agree. First raid was a remake and the other two were hardly challenging. Ulduar was cool seemed like it lasted forever though because ToC was another raid that didn't feel like a raid. The tiers lasted forever. Managing stuff like 'Hit' was a PITA. Balance was poor. Healers were OP. Tiers lasted forever. The gearscore meta...
