Games Are Like Chips/Crisps

Postby Aidan » Thu Sep 19, 13 7:25 am

Chip/Crisp bag.

Seriously. It's 70% air, and 30% Chip.

That is 70% DRM and additional bullshit, and 30% actual game.

The more it gets tossed around between devs, the more crushed up, and stale your chips are going to be.

Different Devs/Pubs are like different brands of chips.

You always feel like shit after eating an entire big bag of chips in one sitting.

You bought Diablo 3.

It's not about whether you buy shit food, it's about whether you keep eating it after you realise that it's shit, and you can only truly realise that if you actually taste it for yourself.

Diablo 3 is fun as fuck and full of content. Truly the only thing that bothers me about the game is the itemisation being super bad.

That was an off-handed joke, I wasn't being serious.

The updates for it look awesome.

Man, I like ripple. Also prefer thick cut, because I tend to get dip. Chips without dip? Why fucking bother me.

Dip is like the bugfixes to my games. If you ain't going to use it then you may as well throw the chips out.

I love cheese and onion, but Tayto is the Irish brand of crisps, their cheese and onion is divine <3

Everybody game now, its not full-nerd hobby these days, so its natural that chips that we get are no longer primarily some kind of old traditional snack but intended to make lot of cash off the masses fast and often.

This means that because there is so much shit, you just have to dig a bit harder for good stuff. I do think there is merit to the thought that the prevalence of shit drags quality down in most but not all cases, although we seem to have mega-publishers such as EA to thank for lot of that.

This is why I raged so much about Dragon Age 2 while I found DA:O to be really good. Its chips.

James makes valid point, though, about not buying shit.

As said: You have to know it takes like shit to know it is shit, and to know if it tastes like shit you must actually taste it.

Case in point: Eat the shit before you decide it's shit or not.

They keep shrinking the packet, dammit. I can't enjoy my high calorie shit unless there's 'a lot' of it! I see you too Cadbury's, changing the shape of your chocolate bars to cut off the corners! I'm on to you!

Hahaha and then they'll make them square again, and then circles, then squares, then circles.

They'll tell everyone that the "change to squares" is to "give you more chocolate!" when in fact it progressively shrinks every time they do it.

Plenty of free examples of shit :D You don't have to stroke the dog to sample a piece of crap.

But that is already nagging.



Fucking pisses me off if packages get larger and content gets smaller AND more colourful. Now that is something you buy once and learn about pigs in sack. Sometimes comparison charts are made of packages and content through the years, saw one for potato waffles while back. Don't know whether to laugh or cry, meh.
