: lol - okay, but you'll have to define 'plays right' and 'not plagued with
: problems' in a less subjective way than you usually do.

: (I'm saying that you CANNOT say that objectively, because I reject your base
: assumptions.)

When speaking generally, it can be said objectively that the game should play right and not be plagued by problems. It doesn't need defining. Sim City probably shouldn't have massive server issues, on top of the other actual real problems within the game environment itself. These were facts, not opinions, and I think EA has most of the issues fixed (server issues and gameplay). Halo 2? Modders, button glitches, connection glitches, etc. Real problems, really busted experience, mostly on the DLC maps. Extreme example, but again, facts, and most importantly, facts that deserved way more attention than aesthetics (not that Bungie ever looked at aesthetics, but c'mon, if they had when there were so many other problems... lol).

Or if we want to be topical and go with H4: how are those X's working out for you? Uh oh, don't blink! :P

Or just read the Halo Bulletin that just got posted:

"we are currently evaluating the state of Halo 4ís weapon balance. The sustain, sandbox, multiplayer and test teams have been working together and evaluating which weapons and categories of weapons need some attention, and we are happy to say that our internal testing has allowed us to make great progress.

We have also mentioned that we are approaching weapon re-balancing very carefully, as each change that is checked requires vigorous testing to ensure that it benefits the entire sandbox, and that gameplay is improved on a global level across all of Halo 4ís maps, game modes and scenarios."

And for real, there are balancing problems, and the DMR as at the top of the list. Granted, after what they did to put X's in, when I personally and subjectively read the part about how it requires vigorous testing to ensure that it benefits the entire sandbox, well, you know I can't help but laugh. I guess we'll see how well tested it really is when it happens, right?

But yeah, actually making sure the game plays right, is balanced right, isn't broken, doesn't have server issues, etc. are all far more important than trying to cash grab.
