You're right, I can't. I'm a realist.
At 44 I've been playing PC & console games for 20 years and I've watched the game industry become far too comfortable with releasing broken games and then not supporting them.
It also doesn't help that I have many friends who work or worked at major game studios and have told me about the product cycles, the workload, the cut corners, etc...
I'm also very wary of "hype", which is why I've been giving MW3 the critical eye. Too much bs floating around. Too much speculation and not enough critical thinking by people who read press releases and mistake it for genuine news.
If the game is so amazing then why not release a MP beta on XBL? How about an SP beta? All the major francise games release betas yet COD doesn't,
Why is that?
Why are they more interested in selling us on Elite than, for example, showing us how previous MP problems like lag, hit detection, and hacking have been solved?
