what went wrong?

>>263776062
Dumbing down because there were people at Maxis and EA scared the mass market wouldn't 'get' it.

It's quite well documented.

Yes

The mechanics were so lackluster and mediocre that the community doesn't even give a fuck enough to make an overhaul of it.

So much wasted potential.

not really
it was one of the few games I was actually hyped for
bought it day 1
still have buyer's remorse to this day

It could have been one of the greatest games of all times, but EA decided to fuck it up royally

I gave up on ever being hyped for anything that day

I didn't even know about any of the pre-release material but buying Spore was still some of the most buyer's remorse I ever had.

You can't get onto the online servers anymore.
Even if you actually purchased the game.
EA shutdown Sporepedia

>>263780083
the only great parts of the game is the creature creation and the creature stage. galactic adventures tries to make it more better with a mix of creature and space stage but it's just a dead game

I could continue this game if anyone remembers the thread from about six or seven months ago.

>>263780083
I think it's worth a buy, since when it comes down to it, it was a disappointment but was still a decent, fun game for about the first 20 hours.

How can you even compare a good game that got shitted up by executives with a bunch of sequels that were never planned? You already got good games, you just want more of them
>>
>>263783359
ZOE 3 was planned, Prey 2 was planned and was a full game when Bethesda shit canned it, Metal arms 2 was planned before blizzard bought Swinging ape studios, Bad fur day 2 was planned, TS4 was planned and no publisher took it (Too much content), CnC Tiberium got a fucking gameinformer cover story on it

ZOE 3 has a hope of being made. It may be slim but it has a chance. The others? No fucking way or at least not in their original forms

It seemed like it was just doomed. I was so excited when the original creature creator came out. But so many elements joined together to bring it down.

If there was a kikestarter for a new version of Spore that was the intended original experience, I'd back that shit outright.

The only truly good stages are Civilization, and Space. People say space is boring but I love it, Galactic adventures is trash though

>>263775581

>>263784506
The problem is that you're launched into space after like 3-4 hours and the rest of the game plays out in that little ship of yours. What if I wanted to stay on my planet and develop there? There isn't an option to do that.

A lot more could have been done with it, I only started using 4chan like 3 years ago so I wasn't around for the hype, but when I got it I thought it was alright. Not much can be said about microbe stage or whatever the fuck, creature stage is a grindfest and tribal is absolute garbage.
>>
Spore was too ambitious for its own good. That in no way excuses the shitfest we ended up with, but I get the feeling that I would've been disappointed and thought it had fallen short no matter how it had turned out.

Woah nice gif newfriend! Mind if I save it so that I can share it to my other friends? :^)
>>
I played Spore and thought it was pretty shit, but I don't actually see what they did to fuck it up. What mechanics would have made the game better?
>>
Was the game ever supposed to not be a giant treadmill? Why people got hyped up for it still eludes me.
