|HV|MacGyverPeople blame the developers to quickly; true some devs really suck, but that's rare and still...

People blame the publisher too quickly. This is how it works: Devs create a game (with the publishers' input), they polish it and send it to the publisher; the publisher then checks if the game runs on as much hardware as possible, stress tests it and sends feedback back to the devs so they can adress it. Basically every bug that you find in a game that is nothing graphically or coded-wise that hasn't got anything to do with the in-game stuff (AI, physics etc.) is a bug that is there because the publisher didn't check it enough, and gave the devs time to fix. Note though that the publisher should test and notice all bugs as he is the one with the most man-power and hardware to pull it off.

This is how it works. A developing team makes a game, with or without a publishers input. They make the game, test it themselves, and once it is done they send it to the publisher to mass produce the game. The only bug that a dev team isn't reliable for is one that they didn't have time to fix because they were rushed by a publisher.

And personally I would work twelve hours a week if I loved what I was doing, there are many situations worse. I wouldn't work for something I hate, I see too often every day. I know it can be hard to find an occupation in the first place but that is a different conversation. You know that capitalism revolves around competition don't you?

And once again if you find something that is wrong please enlighten me, for I have the ability to change my opinion if enough necessary.

Twelwes hours a week is not that much :D but i think you meant : twelves hours a day. But even if someone likes his job, sometimes it gets heavy. When you work, you work! You get tired, it dosnt matter if its your brain or your body. And you have a family also, and THAT is important! As for capitalism and competition, its true, and this is one of the problems. Many people in third world countries are happier than us, rich westerners.. Money is not all that counts, what do we live for anyways? Do we live to die at work and discover when we it is too late that we didn't do anything except having stress and being always on a deadline? I don't think so..

RTR is a 1000 times better than SW in terms of quality, gameplay and overall polished state, but of course the content might appeal to you more, no point discussing that (even though I LOVE the rtr maps and wish more ppl still played it) BFV: crappy, buggy, far from polished come to mind, no 'fresh' thing would have saved it: plainly it's the works of a publisher that smells money and forces a game to be pushed out to quickly. Generals: can I quote myself ? crappy, buggy and far from polished, don't bother trying to get online it's much quicker to mail the packets instead off getting it working over the net. Again: EA's fault.

With the exception of Operation Husky and perhaps Monte Cassino, the (6) Road to Rome maps were far from exceptional. You got one new side (the French don't even count), a few tanks, and a Sten. Wow.... On the other hand, Secret Weapons of World War II offcers NINE excellent maps ranging from desert to temperate to winter, both night and day. (The maps are MUCH more beautiful than the RtR maps) Its gameplay mode, objective, is also incredibly fun - I can't tell you how fantastic it was to infiltrate a German base via C-47 and blow up the objectives as British SAS, or charging up the Eagle's nest against waves of German SS (true, this battle never really happened in real life, but it was expected that the SS were going to hold a last ditch defense here). The introduction of heavy tanks (like the Sturmtiger), jet airplanes, and more authentic weapons (the British finally get their Sten and Bren, instead of having to rely on American weapons, not to mention the fact that the Germans get a FG42) really added to the gameplay as well. While it's true that Secret Weapons may not appeal to everyone because of its unrealism, there's no way you can say it was a "rush job" or "poorly done". As for BFV, well, I had lots of fun playing it. I don't understand why everyone was so pissed - I didn't notice anything wrong with it. the patches just added more fun content for me. Generals was a great game. Storyline was lacking, but I had a blast playing it, and the graphics were pretty good. (Not up to today's standards with games like Dawn of War and Codename Panzers, but pretty good) I didn't notice any bugs really, just a few odd glitches and unbalances here and there that were mostly sorted out by patches.

Yes, sorry twelve hours a day. You should know what you are getting into when you choose a job you expect to work at for 30+ years. Some people may want less competitive jobs, some may want less time consuming jobs. I am not saying I would want to work twelve hours a day but if it was something I really enjoyed it wouldn't be all that bad.

One of my only complaint about Generals is that it has NO link to other C&C games.. I mean, the game does not play the same way. Generals has NO link to the other C&C's story (they were all linked, from C&C1 to Red Alert II or Tiberian Sun). For me they just took the well known franchise just to sell more.
