Mailbag Showdown: Games That Nobody Plays Anymore: Crackdown

Posted by Nathan Hardisty on September 7, 2009


I’m often compared to Yahtzee when I write these things, well that’s what my internet friends say. So when I stumbled upon a few comments, a few little nitpicks and few tidbits of hate-email, I just had to break them all down. I just had to somehow let out my shallow little yellow thing that is my pen… I mean sense of humour. So, let the trollin’ begin!

This was one of the stupidest articles I have ever seen posted on N4G. Pure fanboy trash.
I still play this game to this day. The author of this article is a moron.

‘Fanboy trash’, what do you think I am? Well.. you think I’m a fanboy? If I was a fanboy then why would I have a column on a gaming site? Surely Platform Nation has something against people like me… apparently. I’m pretty sure we’ve inforced a ‘NO IDIOTS RULE’, and if this is the law of this humble gaming site then don’t even bother coming on here. Because you sir would be… able to browse through our articles, because we’re not idiots. 🙂

huge disagree with this article, it’s articles like this which makes Crackdown the most underrated game on the 360..hell…practically the most underrated overall this gen.

Okay, okay even I must admit that Crackdown is possibly some of the funnest co-op I’ve ever played. But I think I brought up a valid point on why it’s underrated, and that is the Halo 3 Beta. If it was just free on Xbox Live or able to play on somewhere else, I dare say that Crackdown would have been played by a lot more people. Not written off as some disc included with the Halo 3 Beta.

This article is written like a 12-year-old’s first fanboy FUD attemp.

Crackdown is one of the cult-hits and fan-favorites of the generation, it is hailed as a under-rated classic.

Dont believe me? Try and buy a used copy at EBGames (etc). Crackdown is normally in very short supply, and always at a price premium.

Why? Because gamers know it’s a fcuking AAA title. And this article’s writer is worried about this:

Correction, 14 year old’s first attempt at fanboy FUD. I never said Crackdown was overrated, I never said it wasn’t an underrated title (or that it was). Also, why would I be worried that it was selling? I don’t have trouble finding it in the UK, and even then I’d be happy that it was selling. I could never find a co-op partner on my week of replaying.

Nice try article?

Go on the PsN and you’d get a nice hefty list of games no one plays anymore.

Eye of Judgment anyone?

Yep, I will find a hefty list of games no one plays anymore. I’ll find that on Xbox Live too.

Oh and we’ll get to the Eye of Judgement one day kids 🙂

How does this ps3 nerd even know how many people are playing this game?…I still play it all the time and I love it. No game that is several years old is going to be played as much as newer games…but how is Crackdown any different than any other game in that way? This was by far one of the most trolling and moronic articles I have ever read.

The Oscar for ‘Most Ignorant Moron’ goes to you sir. If I was a ‘PS3 nerd’ then surely I wouldn’t be on PLATFORM Nation, I’d be on PLAYSTATION Nation. Hurmm? I don’t know how many people are playing this game, I try and judge a game on its Xbox Live player rating thing and how old it is. Oh and if it was one of the most ‘trolling and moronic articles’ you’ve ever read, just open your eyes and you’ll find more.

You could see the aurthur of this article doesn’t have a clue. I can put in perfect dark and could get a room to this day. Yeah it may take a minute to get a full room. But none the less people are still playing it.

Hurmm.. of course I didn’t have a clue, I’m not Sherlock Holmes. Of course I haven’t played it. I don’t judge ‘GTNPA’s on how many people actually play it, I judge it on when the majority of people who ONCE played it, stop playing it. If you know what I mean?


Every console has a lot of games that no one plays anymore…why make a article only about 1?

I’m guessing the guys only got one of the GTNPAS… oh well… can’t blame them.


online gaming news is horrible

So are online gaming news comments.


Why am I doing this article? Well maybe I want to abuse my power, humiliate people and generally make myself look like a twit… which I’ve been doing anyway. No, I want to do this article to ‘troll the trolls’. I’m pretty sure they’d be happy to get a reply from me, a personal reply.

And if they don’t like it, I have ways of making them like it.

Bribery >:D
