Don't ever bury a rant!!! LET IT OUT!!!
OK, then. Here goes. You were warned!
I just got back from the BFG Rapunzel forum. Where I felt the need to write a positive game review. (I accidentally clicked on the link in the stupid game manager. The rest is all my fault, because I thought to myself: Self, that was a very enjoyable game. Wonder what everyone is saying about it?)
Big Mistake. Big Hairy Mistake. From where did these posters come? Can they go back under their rocks? Back when there was a Real Pond, people didn't trash the people
who liked a game because they didn't. (Or not at least where I read stuff, anyway.) Sheesh. I'm not saying this because I like the DP series, either. Some of the games are better than some of the other ones. There's nothing wrong with saying that - constructive criticism
will help Blue Tea make better games. There's nothing wrong with pointing out Rapunzel's weak points (and there were a few).
- to go all Nelly Negative and say "This Is Terrible Don't Bother It Is The Worst Game I've Ever Seen" doesn't help anybody. So
on those people. It was painfully obvious most of the reviewers hadn't even played the game, nor were they familiar with the fact it is part of a series
. This is a HUGE pet peeve of mine - reviewing games you haven't played. (And I don't mean finished
, I mean even slogged through the demo.)
it here, where people are nice and kind and friendly and wonderful.
