while i agree for the most part, it is a bit petty from everyone really to focus so much on the animation. im not singling you out here by the way havabeer this isnt directed at you personally sure it is terrible mostly, but since Andromeda every game I have played, be it a 2017 or even 15/16 release, I have taken very close notice of facial queues and animations in relation to emotion and dialogue. Until Andromeda it never really bothered me that much, and even when i noticed it straight away it didnt deter me from playing the game one bit. but once the sickening hate-train that is todays internet community decided to jump on board and aerial bombard the SHIT out of this game, i decided to take a lot more notice of other famed games. There are some real, real shockers out there that didn't get any kind of rap that Andromeda got. now I know after the ME Original Trilogy the bar was set high and we were expecting greatness, and it wasnt delivered. but still, everyone got their knickers in a knot over fuck all really imo, and the majority of the remaining haters really dont know shit and just jumped on the hate bandwagon and copy/pasted their opinions from the internet because these days, its the common, easy thing to do. unfortunately, we live in a society where the current state is a love to hate. and its pathetic and sad. of course there are definite genuine distasteful opinions for the game out there, i believe that everyone here on OCAU is genuine in their opinion, and i have personally put by now close to 200hrs into the game across SP/MP and across platforms, yet if i was to give an honest, technical review, it gets a 6 from me. even after all those hours, and i am still playing MP on PS4, there is just too many technical issues to score it any higher if i was to be fair. but i still love playing it, its my type of game. unfortunately, i just think it was a nice, fresh scapegoat for the community and industry to have another whinge and hate on something new, to feed that sad fire we just cant seem to put out. where its cool to hate.
