I feel like playing Lighting Returns just by looking at your avatar.

Games are about the interactivity with the controller; they require the players input and challenge his/her dexterity. Modern games deviated from actual gaming because they focus more on the audio-visual experience i.e. presentation, aesthetics and writing.

A video game doesn't have to challenge your dexterity, it just needs to allow you to "electronically manipulate images produced by a computer program on a monitor or other display" (to quote the actual definition).

One of the great things about gaming is how broad a medium it is. Even the term "interactivity" is very open. That's why something like Steins;Gate, which contains literally no interactivity outside of narrative choices, can still be considered a video game. As long as that core interactive foundation is there, it's still a game (which is why we don't stop calling Zelda a game while you're reading dialogue boxes; it's just part of the overall package).

By my definition, some games can be more "video gamey" than others, and by extension better. I'm just being silly here of course (that's why I rewrote the post two times because I felt a little self conscious). Gaming is indeed a broad medium and it doesn't require this many sub-conditions, because we can always find exceptions. Not unless anyone wants to discredit or dismiss something. :P

Indeed ^^ There's nothing wrong with someone putting more value in one type of interactivity over another, or disliking the non-interactive elements of some games (the broadness of gaming also makes its qualities open to a lot of subjective debate), but it is incredibly annoying when people create arbitrary conditions to write off a type of game they don't like :p

PC gaming has nothing to do with wanting the best experience.

I don't remember saying anything like this recently? :p I'm sure wanting a better experience (such as with performance) is a common reason for becoming a PC gamer though. It's why i started.

I don't think PC gaming provides an inherently better experience though. You just have more options in how you want to invest in it.

Somebody else said it. The argument was that if Nintendo had all multiplatform games at equal or better performance than PS and Xbox, Nintendo titles and free online, then hardcore gamers would buy the Nintendo console. I responded by saying that if hardcore gamers really cared about the best experience, then they would game on the PC where online is also free. So I was told that PC gaming has nothing to do with wanting the best experience.

Well that's a bit silly. There are definitely many who play on PC simply because they prefer it, but those of us that build gaming PCs don't do so for the shits and giggles. That would be a lot of time and money to waste on something we apparently don't care about :p

I do think a console having a performance advantage can be beneficial to sales (depending on the cost of that advantage), but in my experience it's usually seen as more of a small benefit than a major selling point.

curl-6 said: Zekkyou said: It's also worth noting that ToD doesn't run at a native 1280x720, and is a much less stable 60fps than 3D World. A degree of that instability is due to Insomniac having believed that hundreds of bolts on-screen at once makes things more fun than a solid 60fps (and i'd agree with them; it's one of the highlights of the Future trilogy), but even outside of...
