I am a terrible person

Posted by The Dandy Automaton , Jan 03 2013 · 173 views

Why? Because I started playing Spec Ops: The Line yesterday. 
 
It's a fine example of how one must never judge a book game by its cover. Its cover-based shooting that is! [Pause for laughter] Before I did any proper research into it I would often scoff at the trailers which painted it as yet another Call of Duty wannabe. Then some reviews and one Felix Dzerzhinsky (Thank you copy+paste) persuaded me otherwise and after a short while of "should I shouldn't I?" I finally stuck it in the PS3. And boy does it like making you feel horrible. I got to that point where you have to take out those two guards, and one of them offers the other some gum and they talk about going home and how much they love peace and sunshine and rainbows and all that stuff and boy was gunning them down difficult after that. Worse, shooters aren't my strongest genre so I kept dying during the proceeding battle only to get sent back to those two guards again and again. I tell ya, there is no pun that can make that situation lighthearted.
 
(Oh, and if I start comparing it to NieR...Feel free to hit me...Because I've already made plenty of comparisons in my head.)

That game.

 

Seriously.

 

It's best going into it thinking it's a two-dimensional gritty war shooter only so the game gets to take that misconception and guilt you over the head with it.

I'm just going to say this: the further you go the worse the things you do. Just remember The Nest becuase those guys come back, and not in a good way.

Also, Yaaaaaaaaaaaaay. I convinced someone to play one of my favorite games! This made my day.

:kaukau: No, you would be a horrible person if you dropped out of college just to play that game, which is what someone I know did (barring that in his case it was the latest Call of Duty game).  Not entirely into shooters, save for the original Unreal Tournament (fun guns and battlefields) and Star Wars Battlefront (ditto), but I guess I see their appeal.  Not entirely sure why so many of them look so similar, though.

I can only wonder how many Call of Duty fanboys went in expecting another explosive, adrenaline fuelled, xenophobic shoot-em-up and came out feeling so horrified they never wanted to look at another action title again.

I thank you for opening my eyes to the true ways of this video game. :P

Ugh, I know people who do that kind of thing as well. But then, as I found out myself, this is only visually similar to most shooters. It turns out it's actually a lot more intelligent than you'd think, being an adaptation of Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness.

Please tell me that's a lelegitimate achievement.

 

I've been meaning to pick this game up for a while. Just waiting for the asking price and my wallet to come into equilibrium.
