No variety with Playstation?  Serious?

Puppeteer?  Rain?  Tearaway?  Little Big Planet?  Sly Cooper?  Ratchet & Clank?  Tokyo Jungle?  No variety?  Really?

Puppeteer?  Rain?  Tearaway?  Little Big Planet?  Sly Cooper?  Ratchet & Clank?  Tokyo Jungle?  No variety?  Really?   = unessential

Think big games.

What the hell?  All games are unessential.  But you only care about the big games?  Alright, but you and I are different.  I only care about games I enjoy, I don't give a rat's ass if it's "big" or not.

Let me tell you something, though.  This is honest and complete truth.  Back when I was a Nintendo gamer, I pretty much walked away after I had the SNES for awhile.  Why?  Because, as someone else said about non-Nintendo games, I found the flood of cartoony games with flat, shallow characters monotonous and boring.  I found god-damn JUMPING ON STUFF game after bloody game to be monotonous and boring.  I found running into giant coins monotonous and boring.

You know what, though?  I didn't whine.  I didn't pitch a fit.  I just walked away from gaming for awhile.  Then I got a PC and found some games I really liked.  Then I got a Playstation and found more games I liked.  Does that mean I think Mario games are bad?  No, they just aren't for me.  I'm not some little kid who thinks the entire world has to revolve around what I like.

This whole bitter-sounding torrent of whining about games on other systems is really, really, seriously giving Nintendo fans a bad name.  I know they all aren't pouty babyheads desperately trying to build up their own opinions by tearing others down but damn if it doesn't sometimes feel that way.  Nintendo fans with brains, I'm sorry, but bloody hell, this "genre elitist" movement is damn annoying.

Yep. As I watched the various shows all I saw was essentially the same game with a different character model and weapon.

So glad Nintendo is so different.

Yes, Instead of guns guns guns you get mario mario mario. 

with multiple years in between.... not every other month.

What? If you're a nintendo gamer then you enjoyed Mario 3D Land, New super Mario 2 and New Super Mario U in less than a year apart each. Thats not even getting into the Mario Karts and the Mario Sports games or Paper mario or Mario and Luigi. Or Luigi U coming soon.  

Talk about diveresty.

Different consoles. You're only argument is NSMBU and SM3DWorld. But that is also 2D vs 3D and offer dramatically different experiences due to that.

All I'm saying is there is WAY too many games across all publishers/consoles that are simple the formula of some character that uses some weapon to kill someone in a First or Third person point of view with realistic graphics. Its getting monotonous and boring.

Nintendo is clearly different and while they do recycle their IPs, its always with multiple years in between and almost always not on same console more than once.

I have the same reasoning why I'd never buy a yearly iteration. I think its dumb. oh no same game with different labels and one minor new feature!!! F-that.

Also you're focused on one IP out of a great variety Nintendo creates. MSony have different IPs that are all the same basic game. That's the difference.

 

Going from First person to Third person is a drastic change, just like going from 2d to 3d. Even two first person shooting games can be drastically different from one another. I don't think anyone would say New Super Mario Bros is the same game as Donkey Kong Country Returns despite both games being 2d platformers. Well FPS/TPS shooters can be drastically different as well.

The only similality between metal gear solid and CoD is that you kill people. If you think that makes them the same game, then you should think zelda, mario, pikmin, pokemon, kirby, starfox, and metroid are all the same game as well. In all those games, you play some cartoony mascot in third or first person and use some type of weapon to kill some type of enemy. Do you see how easy it is to generize games to make them all sound the same even though they aren't.

Gameplay is what sets games apart. And gameplay is drastically different between a lot of the games you guys are complaining about. Obviously some games are copying others. But that is because they are emulating the gameplay, not just the fact that the character in the game has a gun... 



No diversity?

Knack? Secret Ponchos? Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts III, Mirror's Edge, The Witness, Contrast, Sunset Overdrive, Below, Killer Instinct, Project Spark, Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare (this one has a really awesome art style), Octodad: Dadliest Catch, Transistor... They all look the same to you?

You're taking the games that go for realism and dismiss all the obvious ones. As was said before, you must get bored of movies quite easily. After all, most of them use live actors, and they all look like reality, with the same advanced lighting engine... ¬_¬

And coming from a guy who favors Nintendo... Over 90% of their games are using the rounded cartoon style. So it's rather hypocritical of you to dismiss the realistic looking games like you do here. 

And before you get a shot at me, I love the cartoon style Nintendo is using. I'm just pointing out the hypocrisy of your position here.

For each game a proper graphical look.

True I should have pointed out that with "weapon" I just mean guns! Otherwise I would have included Ryse in my list!

And about Metroid and the other ones: Thats what I'm talking about: Variety!!! Nintendo provides variety in their games! I don't get that level of variety on a Playstation or a XBOX

No variety with Playstation?  Serious?

Puppeteer?  Rain?  Tearaway?  Little Big Planet?  Sly Cooper?  Ratchet & Clank?  Tokyo Jungle?  No variety?  Really?  

Puppeteer?  Rain?  Tearaway?  Little Big Planet?  Sly Cooper?  Ratchet & Clank?  Tokyo Jungle?  No variety?  Really?   = unessential

I can't be the only person who finds this completely asinine.



You gotta stop doing this, hivy

all you're doing is making an opening for people to target Nintendo with this thread

 

You're starting a battle you will run away from and leave other Nintendo fans to fight

inFamous is going to be fucking amazing. The last 2 games were chaotic and fast paced, and it seems like they're just going to keep uping the intensity in Second Son.

I really hope it has some kind of multiplayer this time, although it's not a deal breaker if it doesn't.

I can't believe so many people fell for this joke thread lol. I mean there is NO possible way someone can be serious with this kind of statement. All the same game son Xbox and PS. And Nintendo with Variety yet we have..games like Mario Party, Mario kart, New Super Mario Bros(like 3 of them), Mario World 3D, Mario Tennis Smash Bros...all revolving around Mario....and then sticking with Zelda, Metroid, Donkey Kong, and all 50 different versions of Pokemon.....yet PS and MS are afraid to branch out and try new things.......yeah this has to be a joke thread....can't be serious.

The hilarious thing about this is the fact that this was NOT a joke thread. He was being dead ass serious but will now(maybe) try to use you and NintendoPie's speculations of this thread being a troll attempt as a doorway to get out of a situation that he started

 

Lets just sit back and observe the strategy that hivy will try to use to get out of this one *grabs popcorn*

I was thinking about the big picture, the image of a whole generation, not personal preferences (many people enjoy other things). It wasn't about Playstation, it was about this uniformity. There's no real evolution.

You're kidding right? The whole generation has an image now? You mean the image you choose to give it right? You guys are just grasping now...

No... the image the majority has (casuals, core, ld, young) ... yea, probably some of the ones(games) you don't like... super mainstream isht. There are generation defining titles and none of the aforementioned ones are such. This discussion is pointless, aruguing over nothing... just personal interpretation. I'm sorry.
