Spore may very well be remembered as introducing concepts that will change the way we play games, but that didn't make it fun.

Yes it did.

And thrown with cement shoes into the River Thames.

Wouldn't work, he'd probably fall in about 3 feet then end up standing on a dumped bicycle or a whale.

(...) the actual videogame at the core of all this user-generated content was disappointingly simple. The primordial soup of assorted gameplay tropes never did give birth to an evolved supergame.

As far as I'm concerned, there's nothing wrong with this observation, so I'm not sure why people here are reacting so violently. Spore was a game with great expectations and, while I've had a lot of fun with the editors (and very rarely still have), the game part of it was (and still is) heavily flawed and shallow..

I for one have moved on to other, better games and unfortunately that's something I had never expected to say after I first learned about Spore..

The editors are still fun, but without a proper game to use our creations on making stuff just for others is not much fun (for me at least). I still have hope that with ONE expansion pack the game can be made much better, but knowing EA only with 6/7 expansion packs will it become something worthy of playing over and over.

I enjoyed the game (CELL!) and editors. Even if most others did not, it doesn't matter to me.

Good god, Im pissed with this.
I mean seriously, what in the hell is Dead Space doing on that list. Seriously, what?! Spore I can 100% understand, but this is just utterly awful.
