Seriously, shut the fuck up, not a single, solitary sentient creature on this planet gives a single drop of ball sweat about your inane hypocritical whining, not a drop.
"But why?" You didn't ask, because everyone wants to have an opinion, fucking everyone has to stand tall and pronounce how "Edgy" and "Controversial" their opinion is by stating that they "Hate all new movies/games/television" because it isn't older movies/games/television.
Ask fucking anyone, ask me! Fuck, I'll do the same thing, ask me about my favorite games, I'll give you a list with the bulk being form the 90-00's such as Civilization, Warcraft, Mechwarrior and Mechcommander etc, all those games, and more, kick your ass out your eye sockets, their that awesome.
Ask someone 20 years older than me, they'll probably talk about Kings Quest, the Ultima Series and other early PC games, ask someone ten years younger then me and you get the point.
So, what point am I trying to make exactly?
No one is allowed to complain about unoriginality in media ever again, ever, no, not even then.
Why? Because you all fucking love it, you love every half-ass sequel and reboot because you hate anything not familiar, all of you.
Just look at some of the new movies and games coming out.
Halo 4, which is more like Halo 8
The dozens of goddamn sports games, Madden/FIFA/NBA/WTF 13
Paranormal Activity fucking FOUR
And the metric fuck ton of movies being re-released in 3D because knuckle dragging morons will pay to watch the same movie again, but with a headache.
Seriously, did you people even WATCH Paranormal Activity? That movie is a black hole of suckage, and you people fucking raved about it, I shouldn't even have to tell you this, it shouldn't of had to come to this, the movies aren't scary, they aren't interesting and you can see the ending from a mile away.
Remember the trailer for the first one? Where they recorded
And now there's a FOURTH fucking sequel coming out, and I'm not just picking on movies for just brain-shitting whatever sequel they can birth from their loins, the game industry just took it way to god damn far.
I'm not going to rag on the games in particular, but think about it, Halo fucking 8, don't give me this buillshit and call it "4" it's not, this is the 8th Halo game released including the spin-offs.
It's not just popular titles like Halo, Call of Duty does it, hell, the only thing Activision DOES anymore is make shitty sequels to already lackluster games that people paid money for.
And you people will buy and watch the same games and movies time and time again, then cry when nothing new is every created? Fuck off, this is all your fault, you were told this would happen, if you give something money, it will grow, when you give it all of your money, it will grow, and when it's grown to big to fit in the house and starts wrecking all your shit, you're not allowed to get all huffy and puffy about it, it's your fucking fault.
And there were a bunch of other games you could have played, this example has been used to death, so eat me, I don't fucking care.
Okami was a game no one bought.
Fucking no one bought it, it sold about 200,000 copies, which isn't a lot, that's piss fucking poor for how great that game is, the game is a work of art, a great cast of characters you actually give a shit about, a detailed and thought out world and an amazing story.
And no one gave a shit.
Another example that has been used far to much is Psychonaughts, another amazing game that no one gave a shit about, despite rave reviews if your the kind of person who still reads reviews, and no one bothered to play it, because everyone was to busy feeding the sequels until they got to big.
Scott Pilgram Vs The World? Barely turned a profit, good (Not great) movie that may actually deserve a sequel and it gets shit canned.
So no, you don't get to complain anymore, you sit there and you fucking deal with it, it's not their fault, it's yours, you did this, The Man didn't run out of ideas, you just didn't listen to their ideas.
And really, if you want to look for great games or movies, go back in time, and skip over most of the indie shit.
Seriously, I've watched a ton of indie movies and played a ton of Indie games, and basically all of them suck, all of them.
I'm sick of people giving indie filmmakers and developers leeway just for being small-time, if you and a couple of your friends made the shittiest movie ever to blight the world, it would probably slide as "not great, but what can you say, it's just 3 or 4 guys with a video camera and basic effects, for that, it's pretty good" Because everyone has to gargle the indie mouthwash as much as possible to appear "Relevant" to younger generations.
The only, and I mean ONLY "Decent" indie movie I have ever seen was Six String Samurai, and of course, barely anyone has seen it, it's a good movie, not great, but good, and if you can find it, I would check it out, but you won't, you'll go watch Spiderman 12 and bitch about how unoriginal it is.
I'm not going on a rant about how "Everything new sucks, man" No, if I did that, I'd be a total bitch, instead, I'll just leave you with this.
Most anything "Indie" is crap and not worth you time, and if it does suck, which it almost always will, give them no quarter.
Life is hard, you will die alone, and your indie movie sucks the chrome off a bumper.
Why is it that people still go to shitty stores to shop for the holidays? Why? Why the fuck would you do this?
What's the point? Did you miss the 'Holyfuckingshitlookatallthegreaetdealsonlinemygoditslikeavirtualblowjobbutformywalletbutalsome" bus? I guess I understand, who wouldn't want to drive down to the store and some ungodly hour, wait in line, shamble around the crammed store like cattle, pick out your shit, wait in line again to leave and go home, all before lunch?
Fucking no one, that's who, it's not like you're saving money, even if what you wanted to buy was 10 dollars less at the store, you STILL have to pay for the gas to get their and come back, and everyone I've ever seen to this shitty ritual stops somewhere for breakfast.
You know what I do? I roll out of bed around 8 on a Saturday, eat my shitty breakfeast, dick around on the internet, and whenever I get around to it, I'll buy whatever shit I feel like for my family who doesn't really want it, and wait about 3 days for it to get here, wrap it up, light it on fire and catapult it through their window.
Fucking love the holidays.
Speaking of holidays.
Why the fuck is their Christmas shit up before Thanksgiving? Does no one give a flying fuck about Thanksgiving anymore? Why does Christmas eat up October, November and December? God damn hog...
Also, Halloween is shitty now.
