Yup. One more reason dedicated servers are awesome. The hack he was using was FAR too obvious. He had a MG and was running down a hall and killed 6 people all head shots in less than a second lol. Be more obvious......

Oh I completely agree that VAC doesn't stop anything and all hacks work on VAC but I don't see many hacks on CS:S.

Well,
I'm REALLY interested in AvP as well. The problem is, there is already rumors that AvP WON'T support dedicated server. John Carmack from ID Software, kinda mentionned that RAGE won't support dedicated, same for DOOM4 when it comes out..if it's true, that means that the whole industry is trying to fox us over. Sorry I have no link to post as of now, I'll try to find the source asap...

Now, I guess all game developpers are looking at IW's mess. see how it goes, and determine if they should support dedicated servers...

the sad thing is its still selling amazingly well, its shameful how uninformed it seems most gamers are, this game is getting so much undeserved good press in the news even that it is sad. I am really hoping this isnt going to become a trend.

Man have any of you nay sayers actually tried it? I know about 5 people that did not want to buy it because of the changes, but did.. and not 1 of them disliked it, actually the reaction was quite the opposite. I honestly have not seen 1 person that has played it, and not enjoyed it.
This may be slightly offtopic from whether it should be included it benchmarks, but theres no other general threads about it.

You are correct on that point. This poll is about MW2 as a benchmark. It's not a referendum on the game itself. By all accounts, it's a great game (except I have heard from three seperate students of mine that the end of the single player is very disatisfying and that the game is a bit on the short side - MP aside).

The issue is not the quality of the game, it's the disdain that has been shown to the efforts to appropriately configure the port of this console game to the PC in order for it to be more than a simple port.

Cheers!

I have played it, my vote STILL stands, my stance may have actually been planted further into the NO category after completing the SP (not even going to bother calling it a campaign)
