But aren't Devs doing that too? Alotta games are basing there Multiplayer or certain Single Player elements off more successful titles (Like Call of Duty influencing many games' Multiplayer now).

I might be going out on a limb here (I do agree that people will complain no matter what) but Devs should stop making sequels and start making new IP's. I don't like that there's a 4th Gears of War, talk about a 4th Mass Effect (never played), rumors of a 4th Assassin's Creed, etc.. I want NEW games. Not sequels.

Well I'm sure this isn't directed exactly at me, but personally, I don't consider myself hardcore at all. I always say it on these Forums, I don't care about Multiplayer that much anymore since MP nowadays just down right sucks...

Quality of games? Hells yeah. One of my favorite games in the past 2 years is Max Payne 3. Partially because it's less of a run-and-gun shooter and more of a cinematic experience. The flow of cinematics and narrative made the game what is was.

I will have to agree with Gheuh here.

Thanks to Xerofox for the rambunctiously romantic signature.
