Sonic '06 isn't that bad.

Brawl is better than Melee.

2D Sonic isn't fun.

Star Fox Zero is good.

Color Splash is better than Super Paper Mario.

Sonic '06 isn't that bad.

 

How far did you get in it?  Is there a third level??  I couldn't get any further than James Rolfe.

What's this dairy farmer thing all about?

And that sucks that they're being dicks about youtube copyright stuff.

... milking. Atlus is now milking franchises, apparently

Finished up P3 - P3FES -  P3 portable - P4 - P4G or P5 and suddenly find yourself with the urge for a bit of dancing, fighting, dungeon crawling and anime watching, with your persona friends who do you call not Ghostbusters.

I beat Sonic and Shadow's story, but I could never beat Silver's due to boredom. The point I want to make is that most of what I played was very enjoyable. Even the buggiest levels just make me laugh (especially that castle level)! The game has a good soundtrack, decent graphics, and the level design can occasionally be kinda good.

1. Zelda OoT is not a good game, tried numerous times to get into it, found the controls awkward, gameplay chunky and all around not very interesting.

2. Fallout sucked after 3, I platinumed Fallout 3 and was super hyped for New Vegas, couldn't get into it. same for Fallout 4, I'm not even going to bother with 76

3. I still think PSASBR is more fun than SSB, despite putting more hours into SSB

4. Sonic All Stars Transformed is better than Mario Kart

I will try think of some more.

The "I hate nintendo kiddy games" starter pack

Not a single thing I said mentioned anything about being "kiddy". Care to elaborate? 



The N64 was a bad console in general. Terrible controller, lack of support, and most of the games just haven’t held up very well. The only saving grace is a small handful of classics that most people love.  I’m not gonna claim that Ocarina of Time sucks, because it was probably mind-blowing at the time and is still enjoyable when I’m in that dated 90s design mentality (and dated or not, that soundtrack is still legendary).  But I can see why people wouldn’t like it now.

I don’t like Mario 3’s slippery controls. The rest of the game is great, though.

Pokemon Let’s Go is a much better gen 1 remake than FRLG, probably my least favorite games in the series next to USUM.

The new God of War isn’t bad, but I preferred the first 3 games.

Sonic Unleashed is a good game, at least on the Wii. Probably my favorite in the dark era between Adventure 2 and Generations.

Castlevania 3 is my favorite game in the series. And maybe my favorite game on the NES.

Nintendo will probably never top the SNES in terms of quality consoles. And similarly, no one will ever top the SNES Classic when it comes to plug’n’play systems. Not like a lot of companies have tried, what with all the broken pieces of junk flooding the market.

And finally, I just don’t care much for RPGs in general. I’m not a fan of the really slow pace of most of them, or the grinding. A couple have been saved by the story and characters, while others (like Pokemon) aren’t actually that grindy, but for the most part I’m just not the biggest fan.

Grand Theft Auto V is boring.

I think the XBox-platform is more interesting than the Playstation platform, at least with the introduction of Gamepass.

The Tomb Raider reboot was a non-game. What I did as a player has no influence over the outcome. Try it out, try to fall in climbing sessions or something like that.

Turn-based is in most part superior to real-time, because it allows to make deeper more complex decisions. Which is especially true for RPGs fighting systems. In strategy games there are good working real-time-strategy games, but still turn-based strategy allows for much deeper systems.

I think well-made and well-advertised motion-control games in the vein of Wii Sports would still work and would be awesome.

I think online multiplayer is vastly overrated. Couch multiplayer is so much better than online MP.

Mouse+keyboard is vastly superior for controlling first-person shooters than gamepads.

The industry at large has way less fresh or strange ideas in games these days, games are more similar to each other than they were in the past. As I got Sega Megadrive Collection (Sega Genesis Collection in the US) I was surprised at some of the strange and refreshing ideas. For instance: when had we recently a game again like Comix Zone, in which you play through panels in a comic?

3D is not automatically superior to 2D. It depends strongly on gameplay. For instance in Civilization VI I wish they would have used a 2D-view as in the original Civilization, as the 3D-angled view was less simple and easy to grasp as the 2D-view.

Lucas-Arts point-and-click-adventures are vastly superior to Uncharted.

Game exclusivity is a blight. I understand it for platform holders, but 3rd-parties should stay away from exclusivity deals.

The advantage of PC isn't more power, but instead freedom of the ideas of platform holders.

Indies can be superior to AAA-games. It strongly depends on the game in question. Indies have often the more refreshing ideas (look above about the lack of innovation), with the smaller budget they have lower risk in trying out concepts different from the mainstream.

1. Microsoft has innovated MUCH, MUCH more than Sony has.

- Xbox Live was a huge paradigm shift in online gaming. The original PS2 didn't even have ethernet.
- Microsoft made the hard drive standard
- Achievements were a huge innovation
- Xbox Live Arcade was a huge innovation
- And many more things.

Sony, despite being the market leader and making INCREDIBLE consoles, seem to be more of a follower than innovator.

I have to agree with that. As Microsoft came into the market, they thought about how they differentiate from the competition. They focused on former PC-centric games like FPS, focused on online and gave a harddrive. Basically MS moved with Xbox in areas they were comfortable with, as they were closer to a PC. Sony adopted this stuff throughout the lifetime of the PS3 and made more of this with PS4.

I also think 3DS is a take on the PSP while retaining some features of the DS and that Switch is basically a Vita, but thought through to the end.

-Gothic 1 and 2 are way better ARPGs than TES3.

- Counter Strike is still the best online Multiplayer FPS on the market.

-AOE2 is the best RTS ever created and it got even better with the latest expansions.

-the writing in KotoR and Jade Empire is bland and cliche also the good/evil mechanic sucks. DA:O is the best 3D game Bioware ever created.

-GaaS is not the bane of the industry.GaaS is the objectively best finance model for online multiplayer games.

That's all I can think of now.

-PSASBR deserves a sequel, just overhaul the game mechanics and win conditions, get a better roster and they're set.

-Playstation should really make a Playstation All-Stars game, whether it be called Playstation All-Stars 2 or not. Do a reboot/soft-reboot and make a gameplay style that's either wholly unique or more similar to a traditional fighting game, rather than Smash

I agree with this sentiment. While PSASBR was flawed, it is all fixable. The main gameplay ideas though are worth to revisit and especially in an all-stars crossover game.

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

I would reformulate that as: digital is good, DRM is very bad and cancels out the good things about digital and then some. DRM basically means you don't really own the game you paid for. GOG doesn't do DRM on principle and many indies are avoiding DRM, so in their cases I am completely fine with digital distribution.
