Every now and then you get a lucky break like Dishonored that does well, but typically a game only ever sells on Franchise or Developer name alone, so you see wonderful games like Catherine, Brutal Legends, and Enslaved ignored in favor of [FPS #72]
Yeah, they rather tack on a number to their next release than make a new IP. It's sad, but they'd rather play it safe...which sometimes work but still, I would rather see new ideas within new games.

I still wanna pick up Dishonored at some point.

And personally, from the way you talk about gaming, I can see you as much a veteran gamer as anything. You have diversity in your games. I've seen you on boards from Halo to Splinter Cell to Elder Scrolls and everything in between. Plus with topics like your Halo 4 Legendary guide, it's obvious you're willing to put a little time into helping or improving the community.
Oh for sure dude. I like to explore different genres of games. I would be bored to death if every game I picked up was an FPS, lol. I don't have a favorite genre or preferred genre, I just play what looks good and rarely am I disappointed with my purchases. And the community better appreciate that took me 3 damn weeks! But seriously, I enjoyed making it. It seems to have helped a good amount of people which is awesome.

You'll love it. I guarantee it!

Thanks to Xerofox for the rambunctiously romantic signature.
