People who write about games get paid fuck all and have no time for this shit
Yeah man it's about time someone took Polygon to task. I'm so tired of their videos of goofy brothers having fun with character editors. I want them to do real game reviews where they use their objective game measuring calipers to determine the scientific score of video games. It's an insult to those of us who spent 8 years on our game review PhDs.
Is the new Doom any good? Should I build an eGpu or just kill myself?
i upvoted this strictly for the humor of the uploader being named THE RED DRAGON and his voice being one giant warbly nostril
also the thing i fail to understand about all this is that yes the polygon video was some grandma-level play, but polygon listed it as "DOOM GAMEPLAY - The First Thirty Minutes." there's no voice or textual criticism, just someone stumbling through the game.
the video tries to argue this away by saying "nurrr it's part of the entire presentation package of the game" but let's be real: if you're stupid enough to utilize a silent gameplay video from polygon as a basis for your fps buying decisions, you're also probably dumb enough to watch a 13-minute video about how that's threatening gaming journalism
zero to gamergate in no time at all

Being good at games - being good at using your imagination and immersing yourself in the game.

Maybe there were too distracted by the fact that their parent company lost a lawsuit that will cost them more than they're worth.
So not a single person from Polygon knows how the fuck to aim and move at the same time, or what?
Also who cares? I thought everyone already knew to disregard Polygon.

It's valid to want better game footage. It's valid to criticize bad game footage. What's stupid and dickish as hell is to use a clip of bad footage as the basis for a droning sermon invalidating games media, and then to get indignant when some calls you out for being an asshole.
And "bad at games" is not a valid conclusion from watching someone play one game.. I suck at Doom. I rule at Centipede.
This is just a small part of a larger picture, a picture of a profession that has spent the last half-decade cutting off its nose to spite its face and slowly bleeding to death as a result.
This is the new manbaby/MRA thing: if you said anything remotely critical of Doom (which is fucking mediocre as shit) you're some kind of massive pussy or something.
How can you not see that you are exactly the kind of person you are complaining about?
Tempted to give stars to Cam on this one.
The level design in Doom is nice.
Also, only people with at least one Super Bowl MVP ring are allowed to write about sports from now on. And don't you dare review any movies unless you've won at least two Academy Awards.
And I mean REAL ones, none of those pussy B-list awards. You know the ones I mean: they go "and now some footage of the technical awards banquet we had last night" and then cut to footage of people being handed statuettes from a dumpster outside a Burger King.

Didn't watch the video but Hillary is really good at Doom.
It's a luxury product.
I feel like he raises some good points.

How many of these dudebros who make a federal case over crap like this are perfectly fine with Cinemassacre's Ghostbusters nonreview?
