Locked: I am sick of this 360 RPG arguement.

Forums - Gaming Discussion - I am sick of this 360 RPG arguement.

Racing=Either. They both have good exclusives and share many multiplats. It's a wash.

Sports=PS3. Now that EA got their act together on PS3, I will give PS3 the nod for MLB and NBA series.

Shooters=360. You can't use future titles to tell everyone PS3 has better shooters. Killzone isn't coming out for another six months. 360 has better shooters NOW. No need to dabble in the future.

Platformers=PS3. I'm assuming we're not including the Wii in this argument, otherwise the Wii wins hands down for Mario Galaxy. Ratchet and Clank is a better selection than the Crash Bandicoot and Spyro nonsense 360 has been getting.

Puzzle Game=360. Echocrome is one game. Xbox Live has so many good puzzle games I could go on a very long list to explain away Echocrome, but I'll leave it simply as 360 has Braid. End discussion.

Best Action/Adventure=Either. Uncharted is great. So are Dead Rising and Kameo.

Best RPGs=360. No need to argue this one.

Watches from behind flame proof glass... wonders if thread will quietly slip away or catch fire...

OT - I think PS3 / Wii are pretty close for platform games right now depending upon your tastes, I think 360 is still king of shooters but PS3 may give it a run for its money with KZ2, RFOM2, etc. I think Wii rules for fun games, although I would give PS3 puzzle/fun games from PSN, Wii has best party games, PS3 and 360 close for driving but PS3 just edges it currently I think, 360 is stronger in RPG, sports is a draw all round really...

But its all down to taste, really. I prefer Motorstorm and GT to Froza and PG but others probably prefer Forza and PG...



Try to be reasonable... its easier than you think...

Ok, i have seen alot of threads saying that the PS3 doesn't have RPG's that are worth playing and therfore it is a weak system. But hang on, couldn't this arguement be easily flipped?

Who has the best driving games? = PS3 (Motorstorm & GT) Forza 2 and Project Gothm 3-4 scored higher

Who has the best shooters? = PS3 (Killzone 2 & Resistance 2) Neither are out and will prolly score less than Halo 3

Who has the best platformers? = PS3 (LBP & R&C) Good for PS3

Who has the best puzzle games? = PS3 (Echochorme etc..) Can't think of many as I dont play them but Braid alone makes this go to 360

Who has the best sport games? = PS3 ( I gave this to PS3 because it has the multiplats and the exclusives) Someone else needs to argue this as I hate sports games

Who has the best action/adventure games? = PS3 (Uncharted anyone?) Gears scored higher

Who has the best RPG games? = 360 Completely true

The thing is i do agree that in this moment in time the 360 does have the better RPG's but if you look at every other category the PS3 wins.

So why is it that people are saying that the 360 is king of RPG'S and making it sound like RPG's are everything these days.

 

One for the win...

 

 

 Sports games = PS3 because of MLB The Show is Ps3 exclusive... best baseballball sim.

Also Motorstorm 2 is comming and everthing critics didn't like about the game (no split screen) has been fixed. Let's see where that goes. (Forza may have had a better score but didn't GT5P sell better...?)

Don't need to argue the platformers....

Puzzle games - no clue why the poster just used echocrome. There are many quality puzzle games on PSN. Sudoku, lemmings, Pixel Junk Monsters (RTS but takes brains and thinking to complete levels.) Didn't pixel Junk do another PSN title with the name puzzle in it?

I would put Gears in the shooter category... Not much adventure if you ask me.

Remember, you're basing this on your opinion and unreleased games.  Since that's the case, I could come back with:

  • Who has the best driving games?  Wii (Mario Kart, Excite Truck)
  • Who has the best shooters?  Wii (RE4, Metroid Prime 3)
  • Who has the best platformers?  Wii (Super Mario Galaxy)
  • Who has the best puzzle games?  360 (Braid)
  • Who has the best sports games? PS3/360(EA sports series with the slight edge going to the 360 because of achievements, next year they will be equal)
  • Who has the best Action/Adventure games?  360 (Dead Rising, Crackdown)
  • Who has the best RPG's? DS (FFIV, FFVI, The World End With You)

So yeah, remember opinions are opinions and don't count unreleased games.



Who has the best driving games? = Wii (Mario Kart Wii)

Who has the best shooters? = 360 (Halo 3 FPS, Gears of War TPS)

Who has the best platformers? = Wii (Mario Galaxy, though LBP will most likely overtake this one)

Who has the best puzzle games? = Wii (EoomBlox)

Who has the best sport games? = Wii (Wii Sports; most sports games suck anyways, but NHL 2K9 for the Wii looks like a solid addition if the gameplay doesn't blow)

Who has the best action/adventure games? = 360 (Oblivion, though Force Unleashed for the Wii might overtake this one, but I doubt it)

Who has the best RPG games? = 360 by default

Who has the best fighting games? = a tie between the 360 and the Wii for DOA4 and Brawl, respectively. All depends on your tastes. But the PS3 will reign supreme in this category soon enough. (The Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm demo has already convinced me that this is going to be the greatest fighting game ever made)

Who has the best of the horror genre? = Wii, once Fatal Frame 4 is released

Who has the best of the party games? Wii, the undisputed champion in this category

Kirby, do not troll.  I'm going to start really cracking down on comments like this.  If you don't like your thread being locked, talk to the mod who locked it or bring it up with Naz or DKII.  There's no reason to bring that here.

Also, please don't reply to me here about this here.  I would be beyond happy to talk about in PM's.



LOL, wow, you made my day.

well, first of all, @ Beja-Beja, LOL. i love that.

second of all, the i dont even like the 360. i own a PS3. but i disagree completley. the PS3 does not have the best of any series but stealth games (MGS4 anyone?)

otherwise, the wii has a lot of the best, as does the 360.
platformers, adventure games, puzzle games, racing, all goes to the wii
shooters, sports and RPGs go to the 360.

now, get out.



@twesterm I don't think the OP was making a comparison to the Wii. This was more or less a direct match-up between the PS3 and 360.



 

It is better to die on one's feet

then live on one's knees

I agree the 360 is best for RPGs today. That said, 2-4 years from now the wii will be the platform of choice for RPGs, especially JRPG, and to a lesser extent WRPG.
