Day 22: I don’t blame you
I don’t like this thing.
Before you freak out and get all pissed at me, let me explain myself. Portal, and therefore, Portal 2 are great, great games. Don’t get me wrong. The problem I have is with the pretentious attitude of the game developers on release.
The game is even shorter than Portal, taking as little as 4 hours, and the biggest pet peeve of mine:
DLC UPON RELEASE.
Valve, WHAT THE FUCK. What, not getting enough money from TF2 crates and DLC for other games you developed that you have to have DLC on RELEASE.
-WHAT THE FUCK-
It makes it blatant that they’re exploiting it for money, which is disheartening.
Edit: Okay, kids. I understand that some of my views on this game are groundless and incorrect now. Guess this is what happens when you don’t double check your facts during a speech or something.
I suppose the real reason I harbor sort of a grudge towards it, is because portal for me was great standing alone. I just feel like anything story wise added onto it would feel clunky.
Also, generally, I look at the aesthetic of a game, and then try to push it to a limit. I try to solve puzzles quickly- as quickly as I can. It has nothing to do with not appreciating the work that developers do, at all. It has to do with just how you, personally, enjoy the game.
Though I do like the idea of co-op.
I do stand by my point of paid downloadable content is greedy upon release, though. No matter how pretty or good a game is, you can release that content for your users, dangit. Free.
I GUESS I’M JUST A CHEAP BASTARD! :B
