Yes, an uncalled for thread. That isn't really equivilent to "hatedom". People will grumble about being let down, but that isn't the same as kneejerk abject seething lynchmob, heh. You'll notice the people who make such threads generally make more than one, and are rather outspoken. It gives an illusion of people caring, when most people rolled their eyes, had a grumble and moved on already. :P

And i'm not much of an archivist, i'd say use the search bar but I wouldn't even know what to search for. There were plenty of threads like that prior to the release though.

Well, I personally like Spore. It's not even close to the game that we were told about* but it's still a good time-waster. If i hadn't been following it for 3 years before it came out, i would probably barely remember that it existed. But I think it's fun to be able to go around the galaxy and explore, and it does feel good to grow a tiny bacteria into a spacefaring empire. I've seen a lot of topics saying that this was essentially the worst game ever released, but I feel different. It was disappointing, yeah, but still good.

*i remember one video in particular his creature was walking around a very lush and diverse world, and creatures would actually approach him and all acted in a different way. He was attacked by a small animal that he explained would call its pack to take you down in an intelligent way. it looked like he was interacting with the world, instead of trying to beat it, which is basically all you can do in the final product. Does anyone know what video I'm talking about?

So do I, In GA, if only I could connect rocks and stuff to props. Then I could make the universe's first Photosapult!

Believe it or not but over the last few weeks I have actually been enjoying Spore. I have been making adventures and even revisiting old games to try to get the achievements. I am not sure why but its not as bad as i remember it being last time I played it.

I never found the game to be bad, except for tribal which really was nothing worth looking at  I guess Civ was very basic but I found it ended the moment it got old I mean dead on the minute I got the super i win weapon used it and moved on. So that was perfect length Outside of tribal it wasn't a horrible game and every so often who doesn't like building something.

Given my time all over again I'd have still bought this game (heck only last weekend I got the C&C expansion for this game it was $8 so why not).

The Creature Stage sucked totally. It lacked fun, something I think the whole game did, it lacked fun and challenge.

Or to cut your story short: It lacked game.

It was basically just editor with a test area.

What are you talking about? The CS had the most "game" of all the lower levells.

No, that would be the cell stage. And even that grew stale after an hour or so...

The cell stage lived up to all it's expectations given by the GDC'05 video. That's why it's the best stage.

It has nothing to do with the '05 version.* Cell stage was the most fun stage. Period.

All the other stages seemed more like editors with a big test area attached to them, except for the space stage which had its own flaws.

* Following this train of logic you could also say that the tribal stage was the best part, because there were no expectations for it whatsoever. Guess what, it turned out to be the worst of the five stages. (Followed by Civilisation stage, which also didn't have any expectations attached to it due to the lack of demonstrations.)

I actually liked the civilization stage. Did you try the economic path? Its completely different from the other two.
