    Default Nobody Should Care That I Dislike Uncharted 2

    An article by a Games Journalist. I found it really touching and realistic. Please read it

    Nobody Should Care That I Dislike Uncharted 2

    By Aaron Thomas





    If youíve been following my Tweets as I play through Uncharted 2, you already know that I donít particularly like the game. Not only do I not like it, but I canít fathom how it currently has a 97 score at Metacritic.
    Not one of the 75 people who have reviewed the game has given it less than a 9.0. Nobody in the entire industry seems to think that the game is anything less than stellar. It makes me furious that not one person has registered a dissenting opinion on the game -- Iím legitimately upset by this.


    Iím an idiot -- a complete moron.


    I have a friend who has been battling cancer for well over a year. While Iím experiencing "real" emotion over the gaming media and the way it handles reviews, this friend of mine has to cope with one of the scariest things in the world.


    I spent this morning pissed-off that I had to press a button to pick up ammo in Uncharted 2.


    This amazing woman beat cancer -- and when I say she ďbeatĒ it, I mean that she fought. She went through radiation, chemo, and reconstructive surgery. Once the cancer was gone, her weakened immune system left her susceptible to illness, which made her recovery even more difficult.
    I complained most of this weekend that Uncharted 2 is nothing more than Tomb Raider with a male protagonist.


    My friend and I were supposed to go to the zoo 2 months ago. She was too weak to walk for very long, but we made arrangements to get a wheelchair for her. The day that we were supposed to go, she canceled because she wasnít feeling well.


    Iím furious with the gaming media because I donít believe anyone out there is brave enough to say that they didnít love the game.


    My friend found out that her cancer came back a month ago. She was tired, and she was annoyed that it was back for more, but she was ready to fight again. We had to delay our ďvictory pizzaĒ dinner until she beat this awful disease and I found a job.


    I spent a perfectly good Friday night on Twitter to share my ďimportantĒ thoughts on this seasonís ďbiggestĒ game.


    This morning I received an e-mail telling me my friendís cancer had just been diagnosed as terminal. Iím bellyaching about a video game, and she now spends most of her time sleeping because sheís too weak to do anything else -- she canít even eat anymore. Her boyfriend and her family are taking care of her, but sheíll soon have to move to a hospice center. Letís just say that you typically donít make plans to come home from a hospice center....


    This morning I spent 30 minutes arguing with a former GameSpot coworker that Uncharted 2 doesn't really have a very good story.

    Iíve written this article to remind myself just what is -- and isnít -- important in this world. It turns out that video games arenít all that important. Arguing whether or not a game or a console is good or not... everyoneís life should be so amazing that they have time to worry about such petty and trivial matters.


    To my friend: Iím sorry that I wasted some of the most precious commodity in the world -- time -- upset because I didnít like a video game as much as somebody else. Iíd do anything to get those moments back and give them to you so that you could spend just a few more minutes with your family and the ones you love. Youíre truly an inspiration, and I will always admire your fight.


    You never stopped believing in me, and Iíll never stop believing in you.

    I don't get it...he wasted the time he could've spent with his friend by reviewing the game. Then why didn't get just ask for a leave? His friend having cancer has nothing to do with his job.

    What an attempt to tie his emotions with his job.

    I wouldn't call him an idiot, its just that he tied two different things. From last October to this, was the worst year of my life, but I don't bring up these issues...ever.

    He probably felt he needed to do something about the people bashing him for not liking the game, and since these two things are the biggest things for him right now, he couldn't help but mix them up.

    Both of aaymans posts mentioned what was about to write. So yeah, instead i thanked him.

    Umm. Yeah it is different, but a bad example of how a review article should be. He sure aint buying my sympathy with such a review, not at least in a gaming review site where i will be expecting real praise, complaints, demerits and logics behind his complaints etc. about the game.

    Its not a review article. This was not from a review site. I guess you and aayman missed the point. Completely.

    I did not look at this as a review, it certainly isn't one. What my complaint was about him mixing his work with his personal life. This could just as easily have been an apology letter to his friend, no need to make it public.

    Karon chara UC2 ke mention kora hoise. The topic is 'Nobody should care...' but he went on and on about his friend. I expected the article to consist of harsh criticism, not this.

    aree I get the point but it doesn't seem relevant for this article. He specifically mentioned UC2 in the title, and an article like this does not need one.

    Yes I too share his opinion that there is more to life other than gaming and its obvious to all the gamers, but it ends there.

    lol I received a phone call after my last post, and I thought it was you rush bro, to explin the 'point' to me. lol
