Trickstyle on the Dreamcast, in 1999 :(

Console 3d graphics that didn't suffer from z distortion as the camera tilts!, amazing!

At this point though we basically have seen it all already, most if not all games are , even when considered innovate, just portions of different games mashed together, titanfall being like cod, mirrors edge and hawken mashed together, cod another take on fps, mirrors edge on getting-up / Free running, hawken a take on mech warrior, krazy ivan, etc.

Doesn't mean theyre bad of course, just, dilutes the experience and makes it not feel like it's truly new or innovative.


The last game you thought was innovative was in 1999...? : X that was over 10 years ago... Has the last decade been that bad in innovation?

Nothing this generation has gotten to me yet but Pro Evolution Soccer on Wii is probably a shining moment in video gaming history for me.

That was the last game/series/franchise where I felt that I was playing a next generation title not possible with any home console hardware before.


which one and how so?



The Last Of Us.

I don't think this game has a match when it comes to storytelling and characters. Especially the characters. Naughty Dog took it to a whole new level.



Just because you have an opinion doesn't mean you are necessarily right.

If I want something new I go to Sony or Indie games. Even though they have some hits and misses at least they try to push variety and new possibilities in gaming. Without them there would be very little risk taken.

Well give it a try, what game this gen hasn't been done before? (minus games linked to specific hardware accessories of course).

This gen? Well, that's a bit hard, haha... I liked what Ninten did with some of the mini games in Ninten Land, and I liked what was done with Wonderful 101 and using the tablet to draw certain things, like weapons, bridges, and ladders... Wait, would that be similar to Okami...? orz

(My choice was a game from 2005/2006 just for the record! >: D )

I HATE to say it, but the Wii series, and more recently, Kinect.



Probably Mass Effect 1 - I wasn't a big fan of RPGs before that point, but the action-RPG with decisions that shaped the future story really hit home with me, it felt so new and refreshing. Before that probably Halo:CE.
Before that would have been Trade Wars:2002. Apparently one game per decade really strikes me :p

I do not understand the, "which one" question...

"How so" is a little easier. Thee amount of control you have is unrivaled in any sports game before it. It was unreal to have the ball and move other players where you want or to defend using four or five guys at once. It was a RTS sports title. It was innovative as hell. I was praying a basketball game would use these controls, or a hockey game. Thee amount of thinking was revolutionary. You had to train your brain to unlearn depending on A.I. for anything and when you scored it was an accomplishment, and when you failed, it was all your blame. The game was truly innovative and revolutionary.

Last gen it was Bioshock, with the setting, the pace, the storyline, everything being up there.

I've also got a bit of a biased opinion on COD4 as it was the first 360 game I got, so going from Xbox level graphic level to X360 was just mindblowing. I sat there, thinking "That dude's cigar is not just one massive pixel or a turd, it actually kinda looks like a real cigar".

Storyline was engaging too, and combat was up there.

Let's just say getting my first PS4 game has not been anywhere as good enough experience as it has been last generation, the gap is just not there to notice yet. I was thoroughly disappointed with TLOU:R, after all the hype floating around.
