Forums - Gaming Discussion - Best time to be a gamer?

I certainly think it is. Considering the flood of videogames that are just around the corner for both the 360 and ps3, I can't think of a better time to be a gamer than now. So, what do you think? Has there been a better era of creativity than now? Discuss please.

Games to be released later in 2008

Gears of war 2

Littlebigplanet

Socom: Confrontation

Fable 2

Resistance 2

The Last Remnant

Infinite Undiscovery

Tales of Vesperia

Tekken 6 (?)

This list is subject to change. Also, There're more games. I just can't remember them.



PLAYSTATION®3 is the future.....NOW.......B_E_L_I_E_V_E

Guidelines to understanding my train of thought:

  • THE METAL GEAR SOLID FRANCHISE IS THE BEST THING TO HIT THE PLANET SINCE THE PS3!! THUS, MGS FRANCHISE >> SLICED-BREAD.
  • Solid Snake shall and well always shove 1up mushrooms up Mario's ass. 
  • Solid Snake shall and well always decimate Master Chief with a flurry of rocket launchers, shotgun rounds, and a 20 minute monologue.

Actually, 2005-2006 was the best year to be a gamer, but thats my opinion.



This generation doesn't hold a candle to the 16 bit days, the 32 bit days, or even last gen, yet.

And as far as era of creativity...are you joking? With that list? Maybe LBP if the hype is to be believed, but the rest is just more of the same we've been getting for years.

DLC is the savior of this gen so far, imo.  Without it, it would be a wash.



I think the thread title should've been "Best time to be a PS3/360 gamer?", because you ignored Wii, DS, PSP and PC's games... especially PC's lineup, which crushes both PS3 and X360's.

I'm just trying to make interesting discussion. If you disagree, then that's great. Though, I'd like to see some examples.

This really isn´t that great of a time to be a gamer... ok there are great games out but you need a PC, PS3, 360 and Wii to enjoy them all... now in the SNES days that was the only system you really needed... still its all about what you like... if point and click is what you like your best time to be a gamer is long gone...



 

 

 

The entire N64 lifespan was the best.
