Re: I hate everything about "e-sports"

In Response To: I hate everything about "e-sports" (Revenant1988)

: I can't stand the play by play chatter.

: I can't stand that people treat it like it's a physical sport.

: It's not.

: It's a video game.

: That said.....

: I don't have to watch it, so I'm not. If this is what it takes, the market
: that Halo needs to continue, then 343, make it so. I'll stick to campaign.

: I'm watching the H5 MP beta and wondering what game they are trying to make
: it... It's got the twitch mechanics of CoD. ADS like every modern shooter.
: But it's got bouncy-floaty run-and-gun like Unreal Tournament. And for
: some reason it has wall\ledge grabbing like Titan Fall. It looks like
: Halo , in terms of art and color. Sure don't move like Halo....

My thoughts exactly. Gameplay-wise, it's the kind of game that I'll have a blast on... But it's not Halo. It's nothing even remotely resembling Halo. Those MLG losers finally have their perfect game. It literally has everything they clamor for, plus all of the pats on the back associated with the XTREME kids that they're trying to pull into the franchise. All that's missing is a medal for tea bagging and Steitzer cheering you on for respawning...

And oh God, the player chatter. I have a pretty good idea what the inside of my head looks like now, since my eyes spent a good while rolled back there...

The only thing missing is the custom emblems. Needs more 'nads or Anime boobs in your face...
