Yes, of course I've heard of "The Last of Us". And to answer your question, no, platformers weren't all the rage when Jak & Daxter came out. First person shooters were, and had been since the previous generation. And to take that even further, the "next big thing" at the time, was 3D Grand Theft Auto type games. And wouldn't you know it, they took Jak 1, which was actually fairly original and inspired, and turned Jak 2 and 3 into GTA clones, instead of sticking with the setting and vibe of the original. So if your point was.....well.....basically MY point, in that Naughty Dog follows trends, then sure, you're right.

But my OTHER point, was that at least they used to make games that were fairly unique. Crash, while obviously made for Sony to give them a "Mario and Sonic" type character, gameplay-wise still managed to be different enough from Mario and Sonic to stand out on it's own, and thus it was actually pretty cool. Same with Jak & Daxter 1. But hey, you know what....you're also correct at least partly, in that I'm just personally really tired of ALL of these games that overuse the "realism" + shooting stuff formula. It's beyond old. I never said Uncharted was a BAD game or series. I'm not a fan, but I wouldn't call it "bad". I'd just say it absolutely doesn't appeal to me, so I'd love to see ND make something new that actually DOES appeal to me.

Yes, my point was that ND try to make games in genres that appeal to people. Platformers were very popular on PS2 back when they made Jak and they were also very popular on PS1. FPS games were almost nowhere to be seen on Playstation consoles.

Would you not say that Uncharted was a fairly unique game? Sure, it didn't innovate a lot but at least it combined great established gameplay systems into a great game with great looking graphics.

I asked if you'd heard of The Last of Us exactly because that is something new and fresh for them. It's not just "shoot stuff", it's "survive".

*In regards to current poll question*

The biggest thing about PS4 that I am excited for is the possibilities for third parties to hit the ground running. The PS2 and PS3 were frustrating to wait until everyone could crack the system's power. This time I hope we can see strong third party offerings in the first year.



You're free to shoot me in the face, but I'm actually quite excited to see the next-gen FIFA's and CoDs . Will be nice to finally get a refresh of tired visuals.

Edit: But I voted for GT6 PS4 . Nothing would top that announcement this year.

A new big unannounced Vita game ;)



@Poll - I want to see a price cut for the Vita.

If I can get some disposable income (more than what I have planned for) I might just get the Vita along with the 3DS this year ;O.

Also...dem memory cards T_T.

 

Edit: Atm only playing Valkyrie Profile Lenneth as far as Playstation is concerned ;o. I'm planning to play Star Ocean The Last Hope International once I play and finish off Darksiders 1 (PC) and Tales of Symphonia (GCN).

I will buy FIFA as well and have no problem saying so.  I get 1-2 each generation.  I usually pass on first entry or two as they iron out issues adjusting to a new generation though.  So, FIFA 16 and 19 likely in my future.
