Second. How long must we listen to the whining, moaning, trolling, uninformed blabbering on this forum. And to top it all off, it comes from someone listed as a moderator. I joined Gamebanshee forums at the release of Morrowind and have continually enjoyed them. Up till now. Listen, if you haven't played the game your only response can be " I have no idea what the game is like personally. I can only state that I, personally, have not been able to get it to run on my machine". That is the only response that has any integrity based on personal knowledge. Please try to be more considerate of those of us who come here to share our in-game experiences.
First off, You don't have to listen to any of this "whining, moaning, trolling, or uninformed blabebring" becuase this is a forum, you have the right to ignore posts.
Second, I am doing none of those things. If I were trolling this forum, I would be posting nothing but negative comments. Already, I have complitmented the game for the ease of using the tool kit, the obvious storyline, the sound, and artwork of the game. If I were whining or moaning, I wouldn't be thinking out each of my responses, taking into consideration what had been posted before hand, and giving a reasonable, well thought out response. Also, none of my posts regarding this game are uninformed (unless the story really is crap, the tool kit blows big time, and the art work looks like the work of a preschooler). MY posts have been writed with information gathered from my local gaming store, the Bioware tech boards, my friends who own the game, and are lucky enough to have it run, and my own experiances with the game (of which, I have tried it, and have still found myself seriously unimpressed)
The fact of the matter is, I have made sure each of my posts regarding this topic was writen as to not offend anyone intentionally. If someone took offense at what I said about a game, though, they should seriously consider seeking help. I am merely presenting the flip side of the gaming community, the one who is/was looking at the game with an extremly critical eye, and offering my examination of the game, all of which I am entitled to do, as this is a public forum. I am not saying that I am right, and that all of you are wrong, nor am I saying this is the god send of the gaming industry. My one post about the game, in this forum, was merely a warning, saying that I
would not endorse a product that has such glaring bugs in the software as to not work on X amount of high end machines. It was in no way ordering you to do anything, hence the word "warning".
Lastly, this has been a good debate/conversation on both the merits and flaws of the game (Jaker and Kaaze both offered good points to counter my own), and that is what I am hoping this thread will continue to be, a good comparison of both the good and bad of NWN. Now, if you happen to think that this is Trolling, whining, moaning and Uninformed blabber, then go ahead, and think that, and return to playing your game. If you have something constructive to add to the conversation, though, then by all means stick around, and see where this leads, but don't come in, and belittle my posts, and saying, though not in these words, that my opinion means nothing. If you have anything further you wish to say to me, both my PM and my e-mail are open, or if you want, even my MSN is around, feel free to talk to me, just look for the user with the address "big_poppa_s@hotmail", and I'll be around.
