blue_2501: Mimicking Batman: AA's gameplay is a good thing.  I couldn't really get into SC before Conviction.


First game I had with my original Xbox was Splinter Cell.  Fell in love with it the first time I played it.  Fantastic stealth, great graphics, nifty gadgets, varied missions.  Really fun.  I spent my entire summer beating that game over and over.  They didn't start pulling away from that method of gameplay until Double Agent, which was a pretty big departure from their standard formula, but still really suspenseful due to having to satisfy Agency goals without getting caught by the organization you were infiltrating.  So the basis was still first and foremost stealth.  Conviction wasn't so much "stealth" as it was "get into position to engage in a quick and lethal firefight".  It was still fun and I really enjoyed the co-op storyline, it just lost a lot of that reliance on stealth by deciding to cater to the Chest High Walls Club (they meet on saturdays at your local rec center).  Much in the same way Rainbow Six stopped being about squad-based tactics and started being about epic gun-fights.  Blacklist looks to take it even further in that direction, though I will admit I haven't seen much on it's actual stealth gameplay.  If it'll still allow me to pick my way through a room or sneak past it all-together without having to engage in a full-throttle firefight, I'll still be happy.  I'd just hate to see the stealth evaporate from one of the best stealth franchises ever made.  All that being said, I still have the new Thief game, Watch Dogs, and most assuredly a Dishonored sequel to keep my stealth-game-lust satisfied.

/oh, and a little game called GTAV that is likely to replace my current life as my primary means of existence...

I commend them for trying to tackling a subject that is obviously a difficult one. How can anyone judge something like this before it's released or more information made available? Indy and some AAA developers can pull off some amazing and artistic stuff. If done properly and tactfully, this game can essentially honor those who have died and bring about emotions, empathy, and awareness that no other form of media can quite pull off.

If this game may interest you, or a fan in games in general, I may recommend Papers, Please: Trailer. You play a border agent decides to approve or deny people into your 80's communist, USSR-like country based on their... papers. It may sound boring on the surface, but the game has a lot of depth and is getting great reviews. $10 on Steam I believe.

/Glory to Arstotzka!

Dragonflew: You didn't read the thread at all, did you?


No, I did, and all I saw were people who think subject material is what makes a game mature or immature, rather than the complexity and craft of the designs.

I just hate the random bombings that are a part of the storyline. Even if you do the right thing they still blow stuff up. Oh and eventually it just gets tedious, still fun for a few hours though.

Well, it's a good thing you came into this thread to contribute to the conversation what you thought it was lacking. Oh wait, you didn't. You just came in here to threadshiat and contribute nothing. Again. Keep doing the Lord's work.

By explaining how pointless this discussion thread was, I set video games forward by about six or seven seconds.  You can thank me later.
