Why is Shadows of the Damned doing so poorly?

Now, I will admit I was VERY unsure if I wanted to bother as Suda 51 is not the best name to trust in videogames in my opinion...personally No More Heroes was a few okay ideas with an interesting look and play style that got destroyed but too many bad design choices and unwanted play mechanics.

Hunted: The Demon's F--- (i'll leave the blanks for you to fill in as seen fit)

Anyway, my stance altered a bit when I became friends with someone from a new job a few years back. We became pretty damn good friends and suddenly I found myself being urged to buy an Xbox Live membership to play stuff online with him. I was still hesitant, but Resident Evil 5 hit around this time and suddenly Microsoft found themselves with some more of my money on a yearly basis from then on out.

Growing up with video games (or is that staying young...)

I have been a gamer for most of my life now, actually I can't help but smile when thinking of this fact because of all the toys I played with video games are the only ones I can still do so...well, at least without getting strange looks from other people. I guess I could still play with my G.I. Joe collection on the stairs like I used to, or go on the back porch and play with my transformers like before, however it seems to get away with that one has to be rich enough to tip the scale of judgement from mentally unstable to eccentric.

Best CO-OP game of all time! (...so far anyway)

My friend and i played nothing else for over a month solid, we just kept replaying it and trying different difficulty levels and kept going for higher scores...sheesh, even after eventually selling it off i've owned it 3 more times! (it came with the red 360, eventually traded that copy and bough it used when the DLC came out, eventually traded it and then saw it cheap last month and bought it again...I may have a problem...)

This always upsets me, I use my 360 far more and miss out on these deals not wanting to spend money on a console gathering dust...but man they at least know how to show their subscribers some love.

This always annoys me. Almost feels like being punished for being an early adopter and supporting NIntendo out of the gate. Oh well, not like companies are out for our needs...just our money :P

I find few and far between of the retro titles to actually capture what I grew up on beyond the terrible graphics for this era, however there are too many retro titles that I find to be retro for no other reason than it is currently somehow acceptable. I love when games like Rayman Origins and Legends bring classic gaming back AND utilize modern tools to do so. There is no reason why classic gaming has to play poorly and look like crap...Hotline Miami, Retro City Rampage and Terraria could be so much better than the mediocrity they are celebrated despite of. Retro is becoming an easy out, much like a yearly sequel to a big franchise with minimal upgrade...I fear for gaming. I do my best to try everything, as I do love games, however these just fail me on so many levels.

I must be the only person that wishes the retro style of games would just go away. At 36 I have no use for these games. I grew up playing these type of games, but unless I am slumming it on my iPhone because I am stranded in transit or a doctor's office I do not want to bother with this crap...and I have tried to care, honestly.

I'm not certain, however I think Quantic Dream got excited during the whole retro crap coming back and believed that using the control scheme from Dragon's Lair and Space Ace was a great idea...terrible.
