Quantum Theory could be a 2010 Sleeper Game

While most gamers are anticipating Triple A games, such as God of War 3, Mass Effect 2, Final Fantasy XIII in 2010, there are a huge number of gamers that could care less for these anticipated games, and simply head to their local Gamestop each week, to ask the Gamestop personnel the question; “what is the latest hot game? The Gamestop personnel know that it is a slow release Tuesday, and promotes the latest release, even if it is a low grade game.

Then come the complaints, the hate for the games, the hate for the local video game seller for talking the unwise in to buying this incredibly stupid, worth $5, lame piece of shit! But hey, what if the game actually turns out to be a good game? What do the gamers say then? They play it, they love it, they recommended to their friends, but does that game still have the same recognition as a God of War 3, or Mass Effect 2?

Every year we get those 5 maybe 10 triple A titled games that we have been waiting for all year, sometimes even years. But we also get an incredible amount of low grade games that have you guessing how the heck they pay those video game developers. And then come the games that you never saw coming, the ones that come out at a time when you are on the first few hours of that Triple A title. You still have your good and bad in this category, but most of the time, it is only good, because we only care for the good sleeper titles.

This is where Quantum Theory comes in. Gears of War 3? Are you serious? While it looks very similar to a Gears game, Quantum does pack some unique ideas into the game. You have the third person shooter, bloody gore game play. And let’s not forget the 4 vs. 4 player online capabilities.  Ok, so maybe we need a similar to Gears of War video games. Or maybe we don’t. Nevertheless, Quantum Theory should be on every gamer’s watch since it will be on both the 360 and PS3. And after all, it could very well be the closest thing to Gears of War on the PS3. But let’s not forget, that Quantum has never been a game with all the hype surrounding it, and from the looks of it, Quantum can very well be a sleeper title this year.

  • I’m looking forward to this game. Graphically it looks way better than Gears 1, not quite as good as Gears 2, but that being said, this games has an overall cooler art style, and the gameplay is WAY more fun that Gears’ groggy, slow paced gunplay. And when it comes to level design, Gears is nothing special to begin with. Quantum Theory is doing some really cool stuff with level design with it’s living, changing levels. I’m very interested to see if that gets implemented online though. If so, it’s just going to be EPIC for me (pun intended).

    It’s sad how everyone on the internet is doing nothing but bash this game. This is all these “gamers” (and I use that term loosely) today do. Unless it’s an over-hyped, over-rated game like Halo, CoD, Gears or Mass Effects (which ME1 was HIGHLY over-rated both graphically and gameplay wise, ME2 looks MUCH better in both regards though), games just get bashed to hell. Everyone just calls this a Gears clone, I call BS on those tools. I say Gears started it’s own sub-genre of 3rd person shooter, and this is the 1st new game in that Sub-Genre. To show how hypocritical these bandwagon jumping losers, they all hype Splinter Cell like it’s this amazingly original game. No, MGS started it’s own sub-genre, and Splinter Cell came along as just another game in that sub-genre just like Quantum Theory is doing now.

    Just because Conviction doesn’t look as good as MGS4, people aren’t bashing it. Because these “gamers” are hypocrites. SplinterCell is a shadow of MGS4 and little more than a clone, but because it’s hyped, it’s given a pass. QT has no hype, so it’s bashed even though it has more personality of it’s own, than SC has compared to MGS. HYPOCRITES.

    wow funny how you just had to bash every xbox 360 game and not one ps3 game that is being over hype’d. i guess you are a ps3 fan and not an xbox 360. i think some of those games are being hyped way too much but it not just xbox 360 games that are over hyped.
    and quantum theory is the same as gears of war. there are a few things that are different but for the most part it is the same. im not bashing the game im actually going to buy it. but its funny how ps3 fanboys bashed halo and gears of war saying they suck and ps3 has so many better games. now that quantum theory is coming out and it looks just gears of war that quantum theory is a way better game

    this is too much of a rip off to be a hit game

  • @Matt.
    What PS3 exclusives get hyped by the over-complaining hypocrites on the internet found on forums and blogs? I would say none. They all get completely bashed to a pulp by all these internet tools. There are very few PS3 exclusives that don’t get completely ripped apart on the internet. The only ones I can think of that don’t are LBP, Ratchet and Clank and Demon Souls. The ironic part being, that judging by sales, the people that are or aren’t ripping apart these games on the internet, havn’t REALLY played them either way.

    It’s a fact. Bring up any PS3 exclusive in a forum, and the majority will say it sucks. Because the internet is full of 360 fanboys. One of the very few places this doesn’t happen is on the actual playstation forums. Anyplace else bring up Heavenly Sword….it sucks…it’s 3 hours long (complete lie btw). Bring up MGS4….bad graphics…bad textures…nothing but a movie (again BS). Bring up Killzone 2….over-rated graphics…bad gameplay…bad controls (really? bad controls when it has the same controls of every other FPS? hmmmm). Bring up InFamous…it sucks. Bring up Uncharted….it’s a Gears rip-off. This goes on and on forever in forums. You’ve got about 75% of people in forums saying these things when these games get brought up. And 25% say they are great, but when they do, they are call PS3 fanboys.

    The point of all that is…..PS3 games are NEVER hyped up on the internets. And what little hype they do get. they lie up to or surpass.

    Meanwhile these same people on these same forums call Halo and CoD the BEST FPSs of all time. Halo? Really? The wanna-be Unreal Tournament with slow gameplay? CoD 4-MW2? Really? The game where any retard with 2 thumbs can get a 32 kill streak? The same CoD4-MW2 that is completely unbalanced and has no realism to it’s weapons, hence the LMG being the best sniper rifle in the game? Gears?…best TPS ever made. ME? Best RPG ever made. THIS is all hype. These are the most hyped games of all time. Also GTA4. Don’t blame me because some of them are 360 games. I’m just naming the most hyped and over-rated games. And if anyone on the web says this……automatic PS3 fanboy stamp. No…I’m not a fanboy…I’m a gamer who says it like it is.

    There are a lot of games on my radar that have the potential to become huge sleeper hits. Quantum Theory, Nier, Resonance Of Fate, White Knight Chronicles, Yakuza 3 and True Crime: Shanghai are all shaping up to be really awesome games.

    Of course i’m looking forward to the big releases too like God Of War 3, Heavy Rain, Final Fantasy XIII, Mafia 2, Gran Turismo 5, Pokemon Heart Gold/Soul Silver, Monster Hunter Tri, The Last Guardian and Fallout: New Vegas. Yup, 2010 could well be the biggest year in gaming history.

  • Yup, 2010 is going to be a big year, there’s no doubt about it. Along with all the games you mentioned there’s also BioShock 2, Battlefield Bad Company 2, Alien vs Predator (and possibly Aliens: Colonial Marines), Super STreet Fighter 4, and two HUGE games for me personally are going to be RAGE and Mortal Kombat 9. It’s actually going to be a pretty over-saturated year. But at least it’s going to have plenty for all inds of gaming fans. I wish I could afford more than I’ll be able to. The games I’m saving monet for are

    White Knight
    Heavy Rain
    God of War
    Gran Turismo
    and Mortal Kombat 9 (though this won’t be out till around Christmas, so I won’t really have to save for that)

    And the games I’m gatting IF I have the money are Quantum Theory, BioShock, AvP, SuperSF4 and Final Fantasy. Though chances are most of these I will just wait until their prices drop for new copies (I don’t buy used anymore).

    Haha LarryL you make me laugh, you obviously have zero knowledge of games if you said that Splinter Cell is a MGS clone! Have you ever played a Splinter Cell game! They are completely different you tool! Haha have to love you saying Halo is a unreal wannabe but with slower gameplay, how can a game with slower gameplay be an unreal wannabe!!! LOL Unreal is a twitch shooter and thats harder what Halo is trying to be! Deary me maybe you should go and learn a thing or two before shouting your mouth of with a load of bull!
    God fanboys drive me mental at time!!!

  • Moo

    Well now, you were wrong, weren’t you?

    *Watches as no one seems to be enjoying the game*

  • reviews suck ass!

  • Either you like a game or you don’t. Who cares about what everyone likes. The question is, “what do (you) like about a particular game?”

    I’ve played games that received great reviews and not liked myself:

    God of War

    Video game critics suck!!!!!!!
