atilaa commented on Bethesda's Pete Hines spills the details on why Fallout 4 is so bright:
well, he said "change is a good thing" and then i gave an example of when change is not a good thing. the same can go when a food product gets a new recipe so it costs less to produce but the quality and taste gets worse, that change is also bad. all it takes to break the thesis "change is a good thing" is one example of when change is a bad thing.
yes, you can still compare a new leveling system to other systems (new and old) because it is based on older leveling systems, it would be like saying "you can't compare Windows 7 to Windows 10 because it is a new operating system". to compare a new thing to the older version or other things based on the same concept is perfectly acceptable, nothing weird about it.
so do you not compare ie. a new iPhone to an older iPhone, or compare it with a phone with similar functions but completely different OS just because it is new and therefore, by your logic, can't be compared? and why shouldn't we compare the video games of today to the 8-bit Nintendo games? what did those games do better than what ever game we choose to compare it with? what could developers today learn from the old 8-bit games? see, comparing new things to older things is not ridicules, it is a way to learn and improve. but looking at your view on comparing new things to old stuff i bet that you also are one of those we don't care about history and thinks that we can't learn from it.
"Ok and if the new leveling system is actually a new system then there is no comparison....because it is new." -Prometheus Antares 2015-10-08. when we boil down that argument basically says "you can't compare liberalism to socialism" or "you can't compare horse drawn carriages and cars" for reasons like "because one is newer and therefore you can't compare it to anything else because it is new". that is basic circular reasoning, a classic logical fallacy used in argumentation, try and avoid that next time.
and for the "stop complaining" part, this is the internet, the place where people complain loudly about things. get over it or get out, m8.
