Don't get me wrong, sure the game takes skill and I never said it doesn't, it's just irrelevant. I'm just not interested in the game based on the basic physics of it and the animations for the most part. People feel the same way about RaiderZ, and to be honest, on many things I agree because that game's physics aren't that good either and many of the skill animations are not exactly dazzling. The only reason I play that is because, like I mentioned before, it's like the Eden Eternal of the action mmorpg genre: nothing you haven't seen before, but done in a way that is decent enough to be enjoyable for a while.
Would you really be telling me I needed to play RaiderZ till level 20 or 30 to know what the physics of that game is like? Or that you can't tell what it's like from gameplay videos? Am I mistaken or didn't Monkuar post a video about TERA, a visual observation, and compare it to C9 gameplay and ask which was better? So I guess I should be telling him that he has to play the game until level___ before making an assessment about it instead of basing it off of first impressions and/or gameplay videos, even though that's basically what he was asking people to do, right?
Do you and those of you out there watching always give a game a "Fair Shot" before deciding what you think about it? No, and I know the answer is "No" because I've seen many of you saying how you've uninstalled a game, for whatever the reason, minutes after playing it. With any other game, that would be perfectly acceptable, especially if it were something we all agreed was universally mediocre or bad in the first place.
The only reason why you and I are talking right now is because I'm criticizing a game you personally like. If it were any other day and any other game, my opinion wouldn't even matter matter now would it? Or am I mistaken and have we had this conversation about me not trying out a number of other games to level ___ because you really stand by that principle and actually give a damn about what I think as an individual?
Pretty sure the answer to those are "no" too.
I didn't feel like giving C9 a "fair chance" because it does not appeal to me, mainly for the reasons mentioned above, as well as others that would be obvious to anyone who knows what I dislike about games in general (Another one of those things was mentioned in this thread).
I've played enough games to know what I like and don't like, same as you. We all judge accordingly.
