Heres my $0.02. SOTB was great for its technical feats
. How many people say that it was a great game? I don't know many. Yes, we marveled at the delicious graphics and sumptious sound but that was all. And these day - I tell you - nothing!
impresses the modern gamer anymore.
Its all about the magic
, and sadly that is gone from modern gaming. If I'd have seen Doom3 7 years ago I'd be like
. Now I'm like "pretty good, but darn I spent $2,500 for this?"
I don't see what technical feats they could do these days to impress - especially if it followed the same formula (hard as nails - makes you want to punch your screen while plotting way to pummel the programmers)
Thats my bit.
