what the mainstream is doing to gaming what it's done to music, movies, tv, computing and just about everything else it touches. the result is a simplified, dumbed-down, novelty product that milks the consumer for every cent they're stupid enough to pay.

the original audience for computing and gaming, the people who enabled the industry through their enthusiasm and purchases, are no longer the target audience. but we're probably 10 consumer generations past them by now.

people blame corporations for "the way things are", but the true culprits are the lazy masses who gorge on whatever swill is in their trough.

wheee. (or should I say wiiiiii?)

yeah, at those prices I do not see it working. Original TF2 was good, this not so much. They are just trying to jump on a bandwagon and failing miserably.

You sound like a crackpot. It's people like you that stand around street corners with signs yelling about random crap and telling everyone who won't listen to you that they are sheep.

I liked TF2 before any of the updates. This game has been getting worse and worse over time. Now I fear that Valve has gone dark side and will not make any more good games. If this catches off good bye good games from valve as the next counter stike will include this and L4D346546 will be released 4 years from now before we hear about Half Life 2 episode 3.

I hope the above is not true.

Wow, what a joke that game turned out to be. I haven't played for quite some time but it was a good game back then. That new spy knife is too much. Silent kills? Christ...
