This Generation is Pretty Great for All of Us So Far!

Forums - Gaming Discussion - This Generation is Pretty Great for All of Us So Far!

Despite the vocal minority that want to critisize, this generation is off to a great start!

-No console has mass hardware problems like 7th generation

-All consoles are reasonably priced

-Huge franchises on Xbox One and PS4 from the start (took a few years for Assassins Creed, Call of Duty etc to become popular on 7th gen)

-Xbox One is outselling Xbox 360

-PS4 outselling PS3

-We have China in the game now

-Games with Gold and PS+ are giving us free games

-Reviewers are putting game companies in their place

-Indies are better this generation (and getting better)

 

We, as gamers, should be very proud of ourselves. We put an end to a lot of bullshit that went on last generation! Sure there are server problems here and there but these companies are getting bashed enough by the public so that will never happen again!

Agreed. 8th gen is off to a really great start



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

But, but, but 1080p



I've played a lot less and have been a lot less impressed with what everyone has been coming out with, so definitely not better for me as a gamer.

I guess I'm that "vocal minority." :(

Lets be honest here. Games have never been worse. Everything is watered down mass market paint by numbers corporate bullshit. Well, until bloodborne comes out that is.



Can't belive that i'm agreeing with Toastboy! But yes this is a great generation, just ignore the fps/pixel/pc master race whiners and you can start enjoying the plethora of games releasing.



And while many games do seem to be broken out of the gate, Unity is working perfectly fine for me!

Maybe a few more new IPs to come into the mix and a bit more 1080p... But this generation has started quite brightly

It's more a smooth transition from the previous gem rather than the boom and bust of the last gen. We probably got a more noticeable gap last time, but it caused so many issues I'd take this more steady transition



You're a glass half full kind of guy! I like it. The gen wasn't as good as I wanted it to be, initially but now I'm having a blast. Things are only gonna get better.

Meh. All those points are great and all but at the end of the day it's still about the games themselves which are still quite unimpressive if you ask me. Sure we've seen some mild improvements in graphics here and there but is that all there's going to be? There's just nothing new and exciting. Where is the imagination? Not to mention the direction a lot of companies are taking and the trend of bringing broken games like nobody cares.

I'm indifferent to this Gen so far. I guess I could fit in this 'vocal minority'.
