Yes, because you don't like a game lauded as one of the most solid multiplayer experiences of all times means everyone else is a ravenous lunatic. Meanwhile you nostalgiasturbate to an ancient game that fell to the wayside multiple years ago.

Yep, dem BC2 fanboys.

Depends which game you talk about. 1942 had a very large player base up until about 2-3 years ago. Considering that was released in 2002. That's impressive. BF2 still does have a very large player base. And that was released in 2005. BC2 was released in 2010. If it didn't still have a big player base, it would be an appalling game :lol: But yes, I consider BC2 to be like any other of that type of modern warfare game. Certainly compared to the impact and ground breaking gameplay 1942 presented, BC2 is a blip on the gaming radar.

Warband is my most played game easily. With 600 hours in so far, a lot of this is singeplayer and other mods, but probably 400 or so in cRPG. My second most played online game was BF2, played that for 250 hours. This game has had the most lasting appeal to me, part of that is because of the small playerbase, you know most people. So I wouldn't mind if the playerbase would get smaller, I think the death of cRPG is still far away.

Skyrim will not entertain for more than 100 hours for most and its also not an online game, so I don't think we have much to fear from that.

Battlefield 3, mehh, there have been other high profile games that cRPG survived, some people will dissappear, I think a lot will eventually come back to cRPG. Only Warband 2 might really cut into the cRPG playerbase, I think most cRPG will gladly go play warband 2 and I hope chadz will too.


This!

Absolutely correct.

I also play other games then crpg. Many SP-Games for example. But after I played it through, the game is not so interesting anymore.
I am waiting also for Skyrim. Or Deus Ex 3 which will be released next week (loved Deus Ex so much, played it around 10 times through - good old year 2000).
But after playing those games I will also play crpg, because those game have an end.

Once Skyrim and BF3 and RO2 comes out I will be gone for 3 months minimum. And someone saying Skyrim only 100 hours? They packed 500 hours of gameplay in it. Its older game Oblivion easily passed 100 hours in gameplay.

I said for how long it was going to entertain most, few will get 500 hours out of it.

decreasing numbers of players and the following death of the mod have been declared many times before with different explanations (mostly something with upkeep). None of these theories became true and it I don't think the releases of these games will change that.

This.  It's pretty much repeated ad-nauseum in voip on a semi-nightly basis as well.  So fucking sick of this game, but there's nothing else better currently to go to.  Which is why our voip has been split into many different channels lately I believe.  Some people shooting fucks in APB, some hacking at fucks in AoC's free trial, some people RTS'ing fucks in Europa or some shit and some of us looking for a decent FPS or SP game to play instead.

All it's going to take is one polished game with good melee combat I think, and chivalry + that war of the roses both look and sound intriguing.
And I should be nice or polite to anyone.... why exactly?

At fifteen, I had the will to  learn ; at thirty, I could stand ; at forty, I had no  doubts ; at fifty, I understood the heavenly Bidding ;  at sixty, my ears were opened ; at seventy, I could  do as my heart lusted without trespassing from the  square..
