Considering the criticism Beamdog have gotten I hope they've taken it onboard. I really feel they're close to making a really good game, even great, but they need to know that even though people are overly harsh on them, and they really are, that they do need to improve and that they are capable of making something remarkable.

@FilthyAnimal I don't think PC gamers are more toxic than console gamers, just that having text chat means you see more from each player as the text gives and extra layer of anonymity over voice chat. It's also usually less common for text chat to be filtered out where people will turn off voice chat more often.

I really liked the gameplay of Brotherhood, but it was really disparate, with each plot line feeling isolated and the main story a little rushed. It was a step up gameplaywise though, so I can understand it's high ranking.

@Rivuzu I loved story, but it had some real problems that made me want a sequel that I know is never coming. It's such a fun game with some real good mechanics and playfulness, but it all falls apart when you start making your own console and it sells like a game. Software never seems to prop it up and you end up just abandoning it for what ever the biggest console is because you get way more money from games.

Prey adds a free trial on all platforms

Hunam

8 months ago

A few things to comment about here.

I honestly don't think the first game had anything to do with the sales performance of the new Prey. It was over 10 years ago and most people don't really think about it any more, even at the time it was seen as a novel but passable game.

I think what really hurt was Prey 2. It was such a big story over the course of years that persisted even past the announcement of the new Prey. Prey 2 looked fantastic and people were rightly excited for it, but the cancellation and the drama surrounding it made Bethesda look bad. Then the outright denials of Arkane making a Prey game that then happened also hit their image pretty hard.

So, we had years of drama and misdirection from Bethesda around a second Prey game you'd think that Bethesda would try and get people back on side, but that didn't really happen because Bethesda seem to not care about their reputation. The Occulus Lawsuit made everyone involved looked scummy, but also went after Carmack personally. Now, despite the shady antics of Occulus, people love Carmack and Bethesda took another hit going after him, justified or not.

Bethesda then decided that they hated the press. The laughable justification that they offered for day before release reviews made them look childish and cowardly and again hampered their image. Doom just about survived it, and only by word of mouth of it's incredible single player campaign. Doom is a beloved property though, so is The Elder Scrolls and Fallout. Those games tend to do well because people love them more than they hate Bethesda.

Then the Dishonored 2 disaster happened. This smeared both Arkane for letting the game out in such poor shape and being seemingly unable to fix it in the early stages and Bethesda for it's review policy effectively covering up the news of a sub-par PC port until pre-orders were locked.

Prey never seemed to muster enthusiasm on top of all this. But they tried hard to get the hype going. There were many videos released of massive chunks of gameplay, 45 minutes in some cases, over and hour in others. All of different content walking us through the game. But despite all this no one seemed to be hyped. Then there was a demo that was very generous and garnered some positivity going into release but it seems like it didn't do the trick.

My personal opinion is Bethesda need to take their head out of their ass. Their review policy is hurting the games they make that are not their Prime IP. Wolfenstein will probably do well, but I think Evil Within 2 will really suffer. It's also baffling that they are releasing two games within weeks of each other. They need to work on their image too as no one has any sympathy for them any more.

I'm going to give the demo a go as I like immersive sims. I hope this makes up for how disappointed I was with Dishonored 2 and Deus Ex Mankind Divided, both of which failed to live up to their predecessors.

But the future could be bright with System Shock(s) on the horizon.

I actually quite like Kripp, but I do wonder if him moaning about snipers has made people want to snipe him in the first place. It's one of those things that mentioning it puts the idea out there. If he didn't moan about it so much he'd probably have less trouble with it.

DayZ as a concept just doesn't work. Persistence without any goal is pointless. As other people have mentioned once you've explored the map once and gotten all the gear at least once, most of the time you can just mess around with the vehicles etc and then you're done. BR games give you a reason to learn the map, to figure out how to fight and know tactics.
