[SG] Gearbox Sued By 3D Realms. - Page 2

post #11 of 16
I'm starting to lose faith in the entire gaming industry. There isn't but a few studios that don't have controversy around them now.

Sometime soon this is just all going to explode.

Bought it for my brother, he told me it was a ripoff even then.
But to be fair I don't see how Duke can fit in the modern world, Sam can manage but Duke's just an excuse for pixelwomen parts and rude language; and who needs that with the internet?

Sue all you want 3D Realms but even in the counterfactual reality of: Duke 4 ever isn't total crap you would't have yielded any higher gain.

How is the quality of the game related to contractual agreements not being kept? DNF could had been the best game ever made but if GB didn't pay what was owed would 3DR still be in the wrong for suing?

It's not the quality, it's the actual game, Duke Nukem forever could never have been more than an unneccary revival of a fondly remembered franchise, fondly remembered in a pubescent hormonal shimmer.

They were the quiet little developer that made quiet little sequels (HL sequels) and ports and stuff the originally developer couldn't be bothered with. Then Borderlands sells relatively well and they feel like king of the world and take on DNF, Aliens and BL2 all concurrently. Bad things happen, whodathinkit. Not a poor developer, not evil, not a great dev either. Just higher ups with saucer eyes making stupid calls.

This is the problem really - it is INDUSTRY - its went from people with passion trying to get the best out of limited hardware, to people doing it for a job and a paycheck. I think the industry (bar a couple of games) has lost its passion. I actually enjoy some real old games on my old Atari better than modern games. why? Playability. They are far easier to pick up and have a laugh with, than having to spend days sussing out the controls and story. Maybe its just my preference. I know a lot of gamers like games that are more in-depth, I do to if they are at least playable. But games where I have to read for days to learn them, and they have loads of cut scenes - hell, I'd be as well watching a movie.

thats just my 2 pence (cents) worth
