Half of it is the consumer's fault for buying mass produced bull **** that large studios put out. Only indie studios put out original games anymore. Large studios are not willing to take the risk.

only 3 games have used the UE3 engine well and made it look unique and good! all the other games using the engine look exactly the same and dull

Mass effect series, mirrors edge and batman are the 3 decent looking ones

He is right, I mean everybody hates valve. Suckers wasting their time listening to what their customers want. They should just clone their last game, make some changes and spend eleventy billion on marketing. Idiot console fags are gonna love my new sh!t.

Gamers to EPIC: First start making decent games, then take out pipe and then we talk.

Gratuitous Space Battles is available on Steam for $5. It's one of the games developed by Cliff Harris. Buy the game and support the indie devs

Bought this as soon as I saw that sale. It's very different from most strategy games and not what I was expecting. Still pretty interesting though.

Cliffy B has "rock star celb status" among 17 year old pimple faced nerds. Quality women wouldn't touch him with a 10 foot pole.
