    Does the main story matter in open world games?

    in Gaming Discussion on 11 April 2015

    In my opinion the Story/Setting/characters are the most important things in a singleplayer game. You need a world that feels interesting, characters you care about and a Story that gives you a deeper sense of why you Play the game or want to come back again the next day. I really like the Assassins creed games because they let you Play games in historical cities and meet historical persons....

    Final Fantsasy 15 is CLASSIC FF

    in Gaming Discussion on 10 March 2015

    For me the most defining part of FF is that it puts storytelling first. A final fantasy game tells a deep story dealing with philosophical dilemmas. The gameplay is not that important since there are only a few enemies in the game who are really difficult. A final Fantasy game is not about making a hardcore difficult JRPG or about being able to spend 100s of hours exploring. Its about creating...

    If Wii U Today was Launch Wii U... would it make a difference?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 03 March 2015

    I think that a main problem of the Wii U is based on the Wii. The Wii made Nintendo think that Control Devices can sell Systems. But in my opinion a standard controller is by far the best input device for most genres. A touch screen or a motion controller are simply not suitable for most games with deep gameplay. Making these input devices mandatory was not the smartest move. You can always...

    Done With Final Fantasy

    in Gaming Discussion on 30 January 2015

    Final Fantasy is the one franchise that tries to tell the "big Stories". Their storytelling has become very mature, but that is something that many seem to ignore. Final Fantasy XII had a great story... It was just a game that got rid of the idea of a "main hero" and tried to balance the importance of each characters somehow. It also wasn't a hero-Story... you actually were member of a small...

    Next Nintendo HW to increase or decrease on current gen sales?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 12 January 2015

    In my opinion Nintendo will increase their sales numbers again... but this is based on the assumption that Nintendo is staying away from making any new "innovative" device/controlscheme/controller mandatory. The thing is that Nintendo should try to make the console as cheap as possible from the start... If a new innovative device is that good people will buy it anyways. The 3D and the tablet...

    Final Fantasy VI vs VII

    in Gaming Discussion on 23 December 2014

    For me it is Final Fantasy VII... I had a hard time with FF VI because it has far too many characters which was hurting the overall storytelling. FF VI is the one FF game that tried to offer gameplay variation through many unique characters instead of a job system/materia/Zodiac/etc......

    Did the vita focus too much on niche titles?

    in Sony Discussion on 12 November 2014

    I had a great time with my vita so far. But in my opinion the Vita was built better than necessary from a technical point of view. If I go through my Vita library I have to say that 1) The Vita is a portable PS1 (and I still like some old PS1 classics like FF, RE, MGS...) 2) The Vita has a good support from smaller japanese developers. They even ported some old Wii classics like Little King's...

    How much would the 3DS have sold if it didn't have 3D?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 23 June 2014

    Kaizar said: By the that logic, HD is as useless. And you can use your fingers instead of stylus. That what I do in most DS & 3DS games that use touch screen controls. You do know that you can adjust the volume of 3D right? A lot of people seem to forget that the 3DS does more then 3D ON & OFF, you can adjust the 3D volume at 10% & 90% & 20% & 80% & 70% & 30%...

    How Many Units Would Wii Have Sold If It Didn't Have Motion Controls?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 20 June 2014

    The Wii' success was somehow inflated... The Wii got enormous buzz by mass media coverage. The image was created that overweight children could lose weight while playing video games, that old people could remain healthy by playing sports games, etc... I wonder how many women bought a Wii just to "play" Wii Fit or Zumba to exercise ate home. And "Just Dance" was another sales phenomenon. This...

    How much would the 3DS have sold if it didn't have 3D?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 20 June 2014

    I certainly lost interest in the 3DS as soon as I heard about its 3D Focus. I bought it despite (!) 3D after KH3D came out and after some tryouts I always play without 3D. For me it is as useless as the stylus controls because both do not offer anything valuable for my personal gaming tastes (well, the stylus controls work with games like Phoenix Wright and Professor Layton... but it ruined...

    Why do people still buy "warrior" games?

    in Gaming Discussion on 20 June 2014

    1) Offline Coop Mode Dynasty Warriors is a great game to play with your wife. There are not many offline-coop games left. 2) Historical Settings Dynasty Warriors lets you play some fictional fights of ancient china. The characters of the 3 kingdoms are actually very interesting. Sengoku Basara does the same with Japanese History. 3) These games are not about skills... Well, at least I...

    The Wii U WILL NOT PULL a 3DS!

    in Nintendo Discussion on 26 May 2014

    My main problem with the Wii U is still the tablet controller. Nintendo has developed a habit of trying to innovate control schemes, but they often make them mandatory for all. The DS forced us to use a touch screen. While there were a few select games where this control scheme proved useful most of the games didn't need it. The Wii Mote worked with a few select game... but with most games...

    Disgusted with the loss of Innovation (Kinect)? (/rant)

    in Microsoft Discussion on 14 May 2014

    To be honest, most of these "innovations" like the DS with its touch screen, EyeToy/Move/Kinect/WiiMote, ... these technologies were trying to innovate, but these input devices were simply inferior to a standard controller. You have tight controls with a control pad and it does its job. There is almost no room to further improve... to be honest, the controller were never my problem since the...

    What was your biggest issue with the Nintendo Wii?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 12 May 2014

    My biggest issue was the WiiMote. It should never have been the standard controller. I wanted to like the Wii but the WiiMote was simply annoying in most games. What I personally missed was some sort of trophy support. I have fond memories of some old Nintendo classics and I would really like having a trophy collection for gaming classics like Zelda, Mario and Metroid. After having played so...

    That game that makes you have a conflict with yourself.

    in Gaming Discussion on 02 May 2014

    I think I do not like many things that US gamers really like: First person view: I often hear that people think that first person view is the most immersive... I simply can't stand the fpv because I feel it lacking. I prefer seeing a character on the screen that I can relate to. First person view simply feels lacking to me. Open-World-Games: I do not like most open world games. Assassin's...

    According to some on Vgchartz, one-three games is enough reason to buy a new system, so why is the Wii U "not worth it" to some?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 29 April 2014

    The problem with consoles is that you get your fun out of the games and not out of the console. But in order to play the games you have to invest in the console. So the investment for the console is a problem.... Many people do not want to invest in more than 1 console. If I say "I bought this console for this game" it really means "I already made the decision to buy this console eventually...

    Why is it hard to believe that third parties are biased against Nintendo?

    in Gaming Discussion on 24 April 2014

    Nintendo has made many mistakes too... Nintendo made it hard for companies to make versions for all consoles of a generation. PS3 and X360 got almost all of the 3rd Party games because they had comparable power. Porting these games to the Wii would have been expensive. Nintendo made the WiiMote the standard controller. This also made porting games more expensive... The Balance Board showed...

    Sony's 1st party multiplayer fail

    in Sony Discussion on 11 April 2014

    Tastes are different.... In my opinion Sony offers a huge variety of genres: God of War, Uncharted, Resistance, Sly, InFamous, Ratchet & Clank, Heavenly Sword, Heavy Rain. I personally dislike online multiplayer games. In my opinion they offer almost no fun at all. You only play the same old modes an almost every game feels like the same. In most games it would have been better if they...

    i thought dead space 1 was freaking scary!

    in Gaming Discussion on 10 April 2014

    Somhow I couldn't enjoy Dead Space. It had a great start, but the best scene was just after the elevator where the lights suddenly went out and you only heard some noises... I cant tell you why but I simply couldn't attach to the character... So I never felt survival horror because of the weak story and the silent main character. It is hard "fearing" for the survival of a character who is an...
