    Best Nintendo console

    in Nintendo Discussion on 22 September 2019

    The lack of a button was a drag for one or two games, yeah (I remember SSX 3 allowed less tricks on GC than PS2). I don't think the lack of a DVD player was a huge deal, though. The games are ultimately the thing consoles are remembered for. ...

    The major third party developer whose sudden loss would be the worst

    in Gaming Discussion on 22 September 2019

    vivster said: I'd only weep for studios that bring something unique and cannot be replaced easily. The only studio that comes to mind is Square Enix, because they're the only ones willing to create AAA JRPGs on a regular basis. Wouldn't weep a tear for anyone else. (well, maybe Psyonix) Bandai Namco? Their output isn't as huge as Square Enix, but they are the publishers for Tales and...

    Best Nintendo console

    in Nintendo Discussion on 22 September 2019

    I mean, maybe it's because I love local multiplayer, but I voted GameCube. SNES would be a close second, and Switch has been doing very well so far, too. ...

    I just don't get why silent protagonist's are still a thing in video games!

    in Gaming Discussion on 22 September 2019

    Disagree with you, OP. I think it depends on the game. A lot of games - especially those focused on environmental storytelling rather than reams of dialogue - are better with a silent protagonist imo. ...

    Is 2001 the best year ever for gaming

    in Gaming Discussion on 22 September 2019

    2001 is probably out, just because this thread already fails Betteridge's Law. I'm seeing a lot of love for 2007, which I don't 100% agree with. I mean, Super Mario Galaxy, Bioshock, Uncharted and Mass Effect, sure (also Eternal Sonata, CoD 4, The Orange Box and Zack & Wiki,). They're all great or at least influential. Lots of the other big releases people have mentioned were either a little...

    Why do people get upset by OPTIONAL difficult assists?

    in Gaming Discussion on 12 December 2018

    I've never understood the issue with this kind of idea either, Curl, even on a game like Dark Souls. I mean, look at Smash - the adventure mode has its difficulties listed as "Easy", "Normal (Recommended)" and "Hard". The designers designed that mode with a particular difficulty level in mind (hence calling it "recommended") but provided other options to cater to different skill levels. I'm...

    Is there a possibility of Super Mario Odyssey Ships (+Digita) Close to 10mil by years end?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 05 December 2017

    Barkley said: tbone51 said: I said 10mil not 15mil Hmmm.. So Switch is going to sell as well globally as PS4 over nov/dec? That seems a bit much. Not impossible. Nintendo are apparently planning to ship at least 25m Switches next fiscal year, which would be more than PS4 has shipped in any one year. I don't think they'd be setting their sights that high unless...

    1st Party Core Wii Titles. Your Take.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 28 November 2017

    I think most of the first-party titles I'd recommend have been mentioned, so I'll throw a few third-party suggestions in since there were a lot of truly unique games that deserve more love: MadWorld Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon (a bit rough around the edges, but really moving) A Boy and His Blob (I mean come on, it has a hug button!)

I find it difficult to take anyone seriously if they insist that one side is unequivocally better than the other in the discussion about consoles vs. PC.

    BasilZero said: Both sides have arguments.     Console wise - first party support, buying pre-made hardware easy set up, early release date games   PC wise - Forward Compatibility, cheaper digital prices/better deals, free online MP   Neither is better or worse than the other, both have strengths and weaknesses.     Though for me the primary reason...

    Mario Odyssey totally burried 3D World

    Any other Xennial out there?

    Born in 1983. One thing I've noticed about most people born around the same time as me is that they seem to be a lot more cautious about technology and a lot more interested in examining the implications of it, moreso than Gen Xers (who often come across as wholly resistant to new technology) or millennials (who seem much more willing to jump on board without asking questions first).
