An example of how insanely stupid these writers are:
"It’s taking me a long, long time to play through Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus. The reason for that is because I’m playing it as a stealth game – a claim about a Wolfenstein game that would have sounded absurd a couple of years ago, but is now taken for granted as a result of 2014’s The New Order offering a limited sneaky-stabby path. "
The author is a moron. The very first Wolfenstein titles was one of the first Stealth games. Stealth was also a major part of Return to Castle Wolfenstein and was (to some extent) possible in 2009. TNO, TOB and TNC are in no way unique.
Every time I like a publication, it starts to grind on me with its incompetence. RTS, I used to like for their STALKER stuff, but that ends now.
Most likely he doesn't have the experience or knowledge of all the earlier
versions like you do. You did a fantastic article about it and know more
about the franchise series than 99% of the Gamers out there. Knowing
he has a very limited exposure based on what he is saying, it doesn't
necessarily make him a moron or a bad source of information if you take
into consideration they have multiple contributors and this is only his view.
Ah, Crysis. That game might hard to test in a fair way without mods, since its graphic settings were artificially locked down on DX9 systems. Can't see any reason why, since modders quickly learned how to make the DX9 version look almost exactly as good as DX10 (I recall only the motion blur was missing).
