I had to PLAY TEST this mutated godforsaken demented piece of shit, can you believe it? Almost 9 hours of my precious time pissing me off? I mean it's not as if it wasn't working initially, it was just that over time small things such as sounds not working 5 minutes into the "game", some textures just disappearing on me, sound files not being recognized, started creeping like tumours popping up on a bloated alien corpse.
And just when I thought that there's nothing else that can break down, it frikkin did. There were PHANTOM FILES scattered all over the project hierarchy, even things that were NEVER ADDED!!! How on earth is that even possible? I'm absolutely positive that a slightly higher power than myself was actually involved, as if warning me "Don't do it man, you don't want to open Pandora's box". I would've been better off opening 10 of these damn it, the amount of garbage that I had to deal with before I finally managed to package the game, was more work than what I had to do to develop the blasted thing in the first place!
I'm uploading the game as I'm writing this, and you know what, I think this isn't over. I think something is gonna go wrong again, my connection will drop for a fraction of a second and I'll have to restart the process again, a packet will get lost and some small tiny file will get corrupted and I'll have to re-upload the game, the power will go out and leave me in the stone age, an EMP will fry my motherboard...again, maybe even a micro asteroid will pierce my HDD, ANYTHING to piss me off one last time. It's as if the Gaming World is resisting my efforts to further defile it with this plague of a game. I don't care. I will make my anger known, even if the whole gaming world hates me as a result.
Edit: I knew it...my PC is now trying to stop me. I'm serious, you can't make this up. Every 3 seconds it fired off a system sound, that was not listed in the system sounds. It wasn't long after I restarted my rig that I lost my connection for an hour or so. If the next thing on the list is a crazed baboon cracking my skull open like a rotten coconut and smashing my workstation in pieces with a rock, I will not be surprised. At all.
Now that I re-read what I've just written, I realized just how stupid this whole thing is. I think I did a pretty good job at condensing every drop of hatred I've pent up over several years into one, golden turd. Here are some of my inspirations, not in chronological order of course:
Diablo 3 (AH), Destiny, Watch Dogs, every AC after the first (except Black Flag, that was kinda alight), EVOLVE, PayDay2, APB, Hex, Heroes of Might and Magic, Too Human, MGSV, Planetside, 60% of Steam Greenlight + Jim "Fucking" Sterling son, Borderlands Pre-Sequel, Battlefront, tons of CoD's, The Division, FarCry 4, "Generic Sandbox game with 100000000000 collectibles and no other content", the Deus Ex scandal, the Square Enix soap operas, SWTOR, that Sim City crap, Arckham Knight, The Order: 188fuckyou, Titanfall (if you can even remember), Konami (since really, listing their annoyances will probably make me build another game), Halo 5, Godzilla, Need For Speed, Final Fantasy XIII (all of them) Thief..., Duke Nukem Forever (I hate to do this Duke, but yeah, made it even worse),Tony Hawk, Elder Scrolls Online, Star Trek, Battlefield 4, Aliens: Colonial Marines, Ninja Gaiden 3, and many many more.
Basically every game where I noticed greed, laziness, ulterior motives, rip-offs and blatant lies, is on this list, there's just too many for me to type. Don't think that only the AAA with their half-baked games are the only ones at fault, the amount of Early Access garbage is also a fairly annoying thing.
Don't get me wrong, I love a good game, heck I loved the previous Halo games (xcept maybe 4), I liked the first Borderlands, I like a lot of games, but few of them are new. I know, there are still good games out there like The Witcher and Dark Souls, but in general in recent years it's more often than not that a game is simply boring, annoying and highly, highly expensive without deserving it. It's not really the games the piss me off to be honest, it's the people behind them. The greedy publisher, the lazy developer, the clueless story writer, the unqualified designer. You know what, I'm just going to summarize this:
Everything I hate about games is here.
