    Yeah, we need smarter people than you. At last we get an external article (outside the Codex) that sees the problem, argues it reasonably well, and has its facts broadly right, and you .......... shit on it because you disagree with what the author called KOTOR? That's what discredits the author and everything he subsequently writes?
    :retarded:

    Go fuck yourself if no-one can do anything right ever, unless they first recite 5 times that the only 2 cRPGs ever were Baldur's Gate and Morrowind, and continue their their premise only on that basis.

    Your argument is EXACTLY the same as this biotard in the comments:

    So that one detail invalidated all 3 pages for him. And guess in whose interests it is to invalidate this article, genius? Us, who want more depth in future games, or Biotard apologist whose job it is to go on the forums and say how dumbing down is just making RPGs more accessible to a wider audience?

    It's Fallout 1 and Torment, dummy. This invalidates your whole point ;)

    New fag against new fag! In a mud pool! Battling for the enjoyment of old fags and for some KKK. Pathetic...

    And I was one of them. Or still am.

    I'm getting pretty tired of Euro fanbois bringing up The Witcher as some sort of antidote to what's wrong with cRPGs. It's a dumb game with cheezy writing, overpowered PC and a dumb story written by a hack writer. Enough already.

    Yes, because if the fucker isn't consistent on what makes a classic RPG, then he's bashing DA2 just for the hell of it. If the author is an idiot, but accidentally makes a point, he is still an idiot.

    Who said something about 2011 fags? :smug:

    Inconsistent in your view = factually inconsistent. Fuck, you are too stupid to even recognize an ally.

    You are just jealous, that we (Europeans) made The Witcher 2, while your best shot is DA2. :smug:

    Yeah, DA2 is "our(?) best shot". Because that's the only RPG coming out this year, right?

    *SHRUG*

    Who gives a shit what some yahoo who is an idiot posts on another site. He'sw rong, he's right, it doesn't matter.

    It would like me using some of the freaks on the BIo forums to prove my point just b/c we both happen to like BIo games (for totally different reasons just to make clear lol).

    You shouldn't need allies to back up your opinion, FFS.

    Espicially from someone who claims that KOTOR is ana wesome example of a RPG when KOTOR is simply a dumbed down version of NWN.

    LMFAO

    If the opinion is valid, it can stand on its own.

    But it's not valid unless youa re one of the types who jump on the bandwagon where if you agree with it is valid.

    Kinda of the like the Codexian morons who think I'm retart when I state something they disagree with but then say I am awesome when i post something theya gree with but then go abck to being whiners when I again post something they hate.

    R00fles!

    A tool is a tool no matter what he types. And, said article guy is a tool, and I'd say that even if he wrote 'nwn is awesome'.

    Just as your comment.

    (I admit that the singleplayer campaign is not that good, but the multiplayer and the expansions make up for that shortcoming.)

    Why is it not an RPG? It has weapons, it has stats (number of bullets, shield capacity), it has quests (missions). Just like Mass Effect.

    no dialogues?
    no c&c?

    ffs :salute:

    number of bullets? no fucking skills, no fucking experience, no fucking leveling your character and skills

    if you want to go that way than i am calling witcher 1 a slasher. and twihcer2 is even better slasher cause this time you can roll to dodge. every good slasher have that :smug:

    They stripped those out of the game to make it more welcoming for the casuals. But it is still an RPG. Just like how the RPG elementes were stripped out of DA2 to make it more welcoming.
