Guarantee

What’s a guarantee anyway?

It used to mean you got something for your money or something of value today I’m not sure that’s the case anymore. I can guarantee one thing, game companies will not guarantee that their games will be fun to play, or that they will even work as intended for that matter.

My friend always says the only guarantee in live is death and taxes, I’m starting to believe him more and more.

To me guarantees are just something you pay more for without actually getting anything in return for that payment. That’s a little cynical but that’s just the way I feel about the whole thing.

My Guarantee!

You know I’ve been asked many times, well maybe too many to remember why I started this blog in the first place. The answer always is that we wanted to bring an alternative to larger cookie cutter sites that are more a marketing tool than a site, about things we love, or love to write about.

Our only guarantee is that we will play the game thoroughly, actually taste the beer and give a brutally honest review that anyone can read in simple easy to read language. I should say we will brutally honest if need be, we always try to look at why things are wrong and how to fix the problems.

Examples:

Game would be better if you could control your character. Need to calibrate controller before playing game to make controls stick better.

Beer smells very skunky! Please get rid of the skunky smell in your beer it really ruins the great flavor.

Yes these were supposed to be funny.

Guarantee for video games

I would like some game company be bold enough to say we believe are game is so good that we guarantee it. I know some people would take advantage of it to get their money back, but I still think it would be a very cool gesture for a game company to do.

 

So today I you, do you think game companies should issue guarantees with their games?

    Fun is a subjective thing. One man’s treasure is another man’s trash. That’s why I think no game company can guarantee it.

    Maybe the creators can publicly state their beliefs that they’ve made great games.

    But then again, it’s hard to tell whether they really believe so or the whole thing is just a marketing act.

    Of course its subjective, I could go into many legal terms, but what we really were getting to is are you getting what you paid for in a game.
    We would really like a game company to stand up for what they have made and say this good try it on us. Not and Indie game company they do this every day
    we want a mainstream game company to try this, they might be surprised what happens.
