I don't want it to be an FPS for the record, I want it to be more stealth focused like the originals, Chaos Theory especially.

FPS has been dumbed down too though... regenerating health, limited weapons, no more keys or puzzles, no more mazes, etc. etc..

You "think" the game will spoon feed you one guy and then require you to multi shot the next group using auto aim, but you clearly missed the labels indicating this was a tutorial level. It was designed to have you charge a combo with a hand to hand kill and then multi shot the following group.
This is true, and I mentioned in my rant that the later levels could change the obvious setups. We will have to wait and see.

So this is Heavy Rain 2? Splinter Rain? Heavy Cell? Sounds like it's going to be a series of QTE's.

Fact. Load up Mame or any old games and see how long you last. Older games were much harder but with so little ram back then I guess they had to get to the point quicker.

Less and less skill to play a DAMN VIDEO GAME! Get over it. It's a VIDEO GAME. You don't need skill. Just sit down shut your piehole and shoot stuff.

Below is the average video game fanatic.

I think that has to be post of the month, if for no other reason than it has been quoted about 5 times already.
