FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

What do these ratings mean?

Tough crowd!

Frankly, I can see why this game was not exactly...err..."cherished" by most critics, but I seem to look at it in an entirely different way.

It's not the most innovative.

It's not the most immersive.

It's AI is like a sponge with shaken-baby syndrome.

It's not realistic in any way shape or form.

But it is FUN. It really is, I can sit in front of my TV and level complex after complex with small-arms fire for hours on end. I have never seen explosions so big, and I certainly have never had so much fun making them. Personally, I am quite amused by such very basic entertainment, but I can see how it would become tiresome to many.

I try to think of this movie as a cheesy action movie. Think of your favourite Segal or Van-Dam movie. Was it realistic? Was it well thought-out? Was it innovative? Of course not. Did it kick copious amounts of ass?

Hell yes, my friends. That's why I like "Black": to me, it is the high-quality, interactive version of a cheesy action flic. And it feels good.
