loserline49I never thought I'd see valve, a company once known for creating iconic and incredibly original games, jump on the bandwagon of these incredibly stupid and shallow 'trendy' games, especially a fucking card gamewhat makes it impossible to make an original/iconic card game?
the FPS genre is cluttered with uninspired clones and fad chasing yet valve managed to do well there, so why can't they do the same in this genre?
fps games are way way way more complex and have more room to improve in a number of different areas and aspects
games like half life and portal have so many things going for them: story, puzzles, gameplay mechanics, characters, the world itself, etcetera.... a card game will never be able to surpass or even come close to matching a well made fps singleplayer game in these ways
even if you think comparing to singpleplayer games is unfair, just look at other multiplayer games like tf2 and cs:go, things like aim, movement, gamesense, strategy, communication make the game so deep and the skill ceiling so high that games like hearthstone and presumably this one just look laughable in comparison
card games are really truly shallow games that are only made because companies like blizzard and valve found out that they can make a cheap, inferior, less technically impressive game and come out with a huge profit
