The 2013 Grimmys: Worst First Impression

Worst First Impression - The 2013 Grimmys

Game time should be a protected resource, and games should never underestimate the power of the first impression. Even if it managed to turn itself around, no game should start like this.

We have a level of understanding when it comes to launching online only games, not so much when the developer doesn’t provide a worthwhile reason for the online only decision. SimCity was crippled out of the gate and beyond the bugs it didn’t have the features that fans wanted. Here we are almost 9 months later, and the game finally has all of its launch features. What a joke.
