What is the point of games in general?
Obviously it is to enjoy some downtime and unplug from reality for a while and have.....wait for it........FUN!!!
This new game seems to be going to great lengths to research archetypes and many other games to pull together the perfect mesh of a good chunk of what is FUN from each of these things.
Now I used to be a graphics nut! If the game wasn't made for 1600X1050 or higher I wouldn't bother. Now everything is in that or better.
I used to think that more realism made games better, until I saw how realism can also be a negative to the creative pallet of colors and imagination.
Gaming has come a long ways. There are still people who doubt the direction this game is taking. Even going so far as to try and point out imagined flaws before they even get a chance to try it out or even read a review of the game post release.
This game will push boundaries. It will knock down walls. It will mesh together things we have not seen before. This frightens some, makes other into doubters, but for me and many like me.....it might just be the game of choice for the next 5 yearsor longer from release if all the mesh is done correctly.
