with the fact that any time an RPG is released, casual action gamers write a slew of negative reviews because it is what it claims to be?
I remember when Fallout 3 came out there were fans of FPS games slamming it.
Now it seems with dragon age that people are complaining that its turn based and not another hack n slash like Fable 2 or Oblivion. I mean, didn't Bioware state that this game was inspired by Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Nights, and Knights of the Old Republic?
Now don't get me wrong, there are some well thought out negative reviews, but alot of them either are griping about the graphics (and they exaggerate too) or complaining that its a turn-based RPG. I don't think its the game's fault that people didn't actually learn what the game was before buying it.
What ever happened to different genres of video games? Why do some people get this crazy idea that a game should have universal appeal in order to be rated well.
I personally HATE the Halo games, but you don't see me writing 1-star reviews on them, because I'm not a fan of shooters in general, so I'm already biased.
