Overwatch isn't responsible for the Loot Box thing, Mass Effect 3 was.

heh, I find it funny that FIFA has had "loot boxes" in the form of packs since ~2009, years before Mass Effect 3, yet never gets any of the blame for starting the trend



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

1. Uncharted was a mediocre game.
2. GOW 1-3 was repetitive and Kratos was a character I couldn't relate to in 2 and 3.
3. Baldur's Gate 2 SoA is the best western rpg.

Now, I shall go get my Dragon Armor.

-Persona is the best RPG series of all time, but their company, ATLUS, is one of the worst I've ever dealt with.

ooooh, details needed! What makes Atlus so bad?

1. Open world is a blight on the games industry.
2. The graphical arms race has done more harm than good to the industry.



1. A Desktop PC costing more than $750 is largely a waste of money. 1080p 60 FPS is fine for a gaming PC. Spending more than that results in diminishing returns so severe that the extra money just isn't worth it. (Yes, I'm guilty of spending way above that for my PC.) Edit: Seriously though the price to go from a 1080/60 FPS rig to a 4k/60 FPS rig is like $900. 

2. PS4 and Switch are better gaming platforms than PC.

3. A videogame console should be for playing games and watching movies/TV. Any extra functionality after that is a waste. PS4, and Xbox both have bloated operating systems that are annoying to get through. PC is about two to three times as bloated.

4. Unless its on GoG, or an Indie the digital version of a game is always a rip-off.

5. Almost all FPS games are bad. The genre is stale. It hasn't moved forward since 2007. More and more FPS games are trying to be this Online-MMO-FPS thing and it just sucks. Destiny/Anthem style game design is bad.

6. Most fighting games suck. They either require plank level button presses to be good at, or include half their characters as post launch DLC.

7. FFX was horribly linear, with a cringeworthy cast, and nonsensical story. 

8. Metal Gear Solid 2 is a bad game. 

9. Devil May Cry 2 deserves a 4/10.

1. Xbox 360 is the greatest console of all time

2. Nintendo couldn't make a good console to save their lives. They also have some of the most anti-consumer policies in the entire industry

3. FIFA is the greatest franchise in gaming

4. Final Fantasy 7 is the worst of the PS1 FFs

5. Final Fantasy 13 is better than FF 12

6. Resident Evil 4 is the worst mainline RE game (excluding 7, since I haven't played that)

That's all I can think of for the moment.

The Xbox 360 really is the best console of all time. That's why everyone copied it. I say that with the utmost sincerity. Prior to the 360, I hated the xbox brand. It made a believer out of me.

What if the extra money above that is being spent on bigger harddrive/SSD, a faster processor or more RAM rather than just a graphics card though?

Castlevania: Circle of the Moon is my favorite metroid styled one of the series

I agree and disagree with a lot of your opinions but I can't agree more with this. It's my favourite Castlevania or Metroid game. My favourite metroidvania title too.



This is turning out a lot like the purge thread from 2-3 years ago, except without the roasting element. @d21lewis. You suck!

I put together two builds on pcpartpicker for comparison. One was a 1080p/60 FPS build with a cheap Ryzen 5, 8GB 2400 RAM, 580 GPU. The other was a 4K/60 F{S 2700X, 16 GB 3200 RAM, RTX 2080. Both had the same storage. Power supplies were slightly different due to the 4K build needing more power. 

Personally I prefer having at least a 1TB SSD, but I have to admit that just going for a $17 120 GB SSD for booting windows is the better option financially speaking. That and a non-SSD for storing games.
