According to Yahoo, aging consoles and too many sequels are the cause of this years gaming decline


#1

According to a Yahoo article posted last week, that, as well as the fact that the big 3 (EA, THQ, and UBI) have put out less games than usual by this time of year.

No. It’s called a lack of games I want to play.

And even then, I have regretted all but 2 new games purchased this year.

KoA Reckoning - Loved it.
Mass Effect 3 - Nothing needs said here.
SF X T - This is SRK. You know whas up.
Dragon’s Dogma - Underwhelming Skyrim wannabe
Prototype 2 - Loved it.

waiting for ZOE HDC and Rising :coffee:

Kingdoms of Amalur is criminally underrated and possibly the best release so far this year.

Fuck games. I have more fun playing random snes adventure games than i do with any games this generation. I am not even being a 16 year old “OG” wannabe. I actually have more fun playing old 2d overhead/sidescrolling games with less than 1/8 of the budget of games today made before i was born than any game released since 2006.

Currently trying to finish Secret of Mana one so i can finally move on to 2 btw. Muiltiplayer rpgs are boss

I play Punch Out and Castlevania 1 more on my Phone sitting on the bus to work than I do any of my ps3 games.
why? Cause this gen sucks and 90% of the games lack any real replay value outside of online multiplayer. Multiplayer that really isn’t needed. Which is the norm now which is also why gaming sucks. People think online = replay value. When really its a simple as making a good game that has lastability.

I’ve put up my XBox 360 and brought out my PS2.

Currently rocking that Guilty Gear Accent Core.


#7

fighting games are different imo after like the first few hours i NEED to play against someone else that cpu **** is BORING… imo


#8

There’s a decline? News to me, my collection isn’t seeming to get any smaller :/. Then again it’s mostly smaller companies picking up the slack there.


#9

fuck console games they have ruined the gaming industry by pandering to the lowest common denominator of idiots and scrubs dumbing down everything

PC GAMING 4 LYFE

I agree with this.

but not this.


#11

Atari needs their monopoly back. Those were the glory days.


#12

Same here. I’ve been playing older games out there because hardly any new games that came out interest me. I like FPS games, but so many of them seem like CoD emulators that I have no reason to play them. I think the only new game I’ve bought this year so far is FFXIII-2, and even that isn’t so great (I like the gameplay, but the story is literally laughable).

People give shit what yahoo thinks? I am stunned.


#14

I only pay fighting games :frowning:
Anarchy Reigns looks like mindless fun though. :slight_smile:
