Am I the only one that thinks this is insulting to the people that bought and liked a game? Is this kind of verbiage necessary to review a game?
I won't be buying any more "helper" games. They have become redundant, silly, insulting to the intelligence, nauseating, and characteristic of inferior, cookie cutter games. Enough is enough. These games, it seems to me, are aimed at children.
Come on, BF and devs, we are adults looking for decent entertainment, not diversionary eye candy aimed at little ones.
Sorry, but these trends the devs have run crazy with involving:
1) precious, cute animal helpers is getting absolutely insulting. It's pandering to the "aw, shucks" in all of us, and regrettably and unfortunately ---- to the players of a certain age that loves BF.
2) And, even more unfortunately, the games are getting disgustingly simple ---- like this one. My 10 year old grandson walked away from it, and said it was for "babies", and I won't support this or any other game this utterly simple. Come on, devs, give us credit for a little bit of intelligence.
In addition to being a trend, as you politely call it, I believe it is an obnoxious type of pandering. Especially when they show us "cutesy" animals that we can "dress-up" or "improve their habitat". That sort of thing makes me think the devs are laughing down their sleeve at us. I can hear them now ---- "Hey, let's put in a cute little critter right here. We can't come up with a story, but these middle-aged so called gamers will love these critters". Sorry, but that's what I believe. And it's insulting ---- not to mention childish. As a middle-aged gamer myself, I am definitely not looking for cute and simple. Oh, once in while, sure, but game after game?
(And then I see some of the replies in the forums ---- almost always female, btw ---- simply gushing about the "adorable" or "precious" animals. )
I have to agree that this game is super simple with an aim toward very young children, or someone who likes pink or purple.
Those are snippets from four different games, four different developers, all insinuating that only children would enjoy playing them. I'm 56 and I don't appreciate being told that my taste runs toward the 6 year old age range.
I'm curious why I'm getting attacked by quite a few BFG forum members when I protest. He can review to his heart's content but how about *NOT* insulting others while doing so? I'm not sure why I can't get that suggestion across without his admirers swarming me. Am I being too sensitive and his reviews really ARE funny?
