Hey guys I'm new here and I thought this place was great to have a real discussion about video games in a grown up matter and bigger issues other than this game is great or not. So then,
In the past year or so I've tried avoid using gamer lingo such as AAA, Hardcore, or Casual gamers. I'm doing this because I feel really silly when I do use those words. It does not best describe what I want to talk about.
Anyway, when someone usually explains what a AAA game is you usually get the description of High Budget, Looks Amazing, Controls are tight (FPS), Lots of great dialog or branching stories (RPG), detailed world with lots of things to do (Open world/sandbox). To me AAA is just a promise from the developer/publisher that this game will be awesome and have lots of money behind it.
For Hardcore/Casual I feel silly calling myself hardcore for anything. I would consider myself straight edge (Don't drink/smoke/etc...) but just saying that just feels awkward and I would not say that about myself if I was talking to someone.
(I played this game on Very Hard) As for Bulletstorm I really liked all of it, not a popular opinion on here, I know. I liked how dumb it was. I have not played a game in a while that is just dumb low brow fun. I'm not gonna say that the writing was brilliant but it was self aware once or twice.
I feel like there was much hyperbole from the press about the vulgar level in Bulletstorm. Maybe it was because I died a lot but there was a long time where the characters did not say anything. If you are someone that does not enjoy low brow humor than I can understand why you would not want to be near this game. The only thing I didn't like was that it got ridiculously hard from Act 5 onward so I had to turn down from Very Hard to just Hard.
Also I'm looking forward to Duke Nukem Forever, maybe it is just because I'm in college so that is the audience these games are geared towards.
