Yes, correct.

Great games, indeed, esp. Daggerfall.


What, Master?
Another year of the life of the brave?
Again in lava sector?
Mama mia...
Please, YOU kidding me or You are serious?

OK, but some hostile persons accused me that I am so lazy that not read Manuals and constantly beg for help..
Nonsenses. I prepared to play any game so carefully.
My Q's are for aroma only. For friendly atmosphere, y'now.

hmmm..
bad times for the brave, really bad.

Wake of the Ravager on this one. Such a disappointment after the first game. Unpolished, buggy, nigh unfinishable.. and baaad >.>

Honorary mention goes to *drumroll for all who didn't expect it* : http://www.mobygames.com/game/descent-to-undermountain

First of all, those were mere observations, which you took as a personal assault. Second, those were pretty accurate observations. You are the only person in existence that I know of, who managed to actually die in the Tutorial of Lionheart. Especially since the spirit tells you what to do, in voice overs no less.
Third, I think it wouldn't be too hard to gather enough quotes from the games you played to support said observations.

I really don't care how you play the game, but you are ruining it for yourself at times. And in case of that specific game, the poster was right, telling you the solution to the puzzles makes the game meaningless. It was made in a time where an extensive story was out of question, as the mediums did not support it, so the fun of the game came from exploration and the puzzles. And longevity relied on the hardness of said elements. If you fail to see that, and bash on that one incident without even thinking about it, then it is not the people who are hostile, but you.

But hey, whatever floats your boat, I guess.

So Fallout 2 is pulling ahead by a small amount, don't forget guys to let us know why you found the game so buggy or how you felt when you went back and wondered how you ever played it. Only a few days left and the poll is over.

First Shannon's law in action. RPGs tend to be pretty complex and the more complex the system, the higher is the level of its entropy. This is why modern games are constantly bugged despite good QA routines :8]

I agree, however it's also because RPG's tend to become quite big, and as developing them (and their complexity) usually takes a lot of time, publishers etc. tend to narrow the time limit for release date to make more profit out of the game, thus RPG's are often lonly close to finished with many bugs still left in the game. Patches can take care of those bugs, but often still leave some behind.
