Biggest discrepancy in gaming - your opinion Vs everyone

The internet is the worst thing to happen to gaming. It has resulted in:

 

- the death of games magazines

- the death of demo discs

- focus removed from single player games, onto multiplayer

- games released unfinished, then patched

- lots of other bad things probably

I was saying this to a mate a year or 2 back. Xbox live was the worst thing ever to happen to gaming and I knew it would be a as soon as it arrived.

I think God of War is one of the most disappointingly average games I've played in recent years. 

 

Doom gets old real fast. 

 

Skyrim is still not finished. 

 

Celeste is pretty good but I think it's overrated. 

I am 100% with you on God of War. 6.5/10 at best

God of War was a 10 hour experience stretched into 25 for no good reason.

 

Halo 3 is the best halo.

 

Most Dreamcast games were arcade ports that, whilst fun, didn’t translate into console experiences very well. Crazy Taxi? Great in the arcades for a couple of minutes, boring as fuck after the 10th go on a TV using a pad.

I have always hated the Dual Shock 1 - 3 controllers. Quite apart from being the epitome of lazy design (Sony Employee #1: "Oh shit, we need to get these sticks on the PS1 controller ASAP! But we don't have time to redesign the whole thing?!?!" Sony Employee #2: *Unrolls duct tape with a flourish* "I got this, bro."), the sticks are way too close together. Whenever I play an FPS on a DS2/3 it feels like I'm riding a child's bicycle.

 

The DS4 is better but I would hate to have to play through an actual game with one.

The Switch is Nintendo’s first good console since the GameCube.

Or, the Wiiu is the most under rated console of all time!

I have bought every version of Forza Horizon including DLC across two consoles and I can confidently state that the best version of Forza Horizon is called “Test Drive Unlimited 2”.

2DS bra

 

Sorry, perhaps my post was a little ambiguous.

 

The Switch is Nintendo’s FIRST GOOD console since the GameCube.

Speaking of which: Street Racer on the SNES was better than Mario Kart.

 

In fact, without the "Mario" bit, Mario Kart would have sunk without a trace. I had a lot of nostalgia for Mario Kart, so worked my way from the SNES original up to the Wii version (I don't own a WiiU or Switch) and, while they aren't bad, per se, they aren't particularly good either. I would go as far as to say I suffered through a couple of them, since they are exercises in frustration, for the most part.

 

Lol, it was a good game Street Racer and maybe had more depth than MK for the ‘story’s mode but MK is probably the best time challenge Kart game ever made. I would argue the best two player Kart game ever also.

Have you played Super Mario Kart recently? Edge 5.

 

Yeah, stone cold classic - Edge 11

Apart from the guy who said Resident Evil 4 was rubbish - that prick can fuck off.

On a positive note...

 

Given my hate for all things Naughty dog I fookin loved God of War and I despise the cinematic game genre as they all sacrifice gameplay for a mediocre story - given the review scores I guess it’s not a shocker of a view but it’s the first game in this sub genre I have actually loved and I’m not much of a GoW fan either!

 

NSMBU is the best 2D mario game ever......

I'm going to counter my earlier negativity with some more positive thoughts:

 

Dante's Inferno is pretty much as good as the first couple God of War games (if you ignore the whole source material thing). 

 

Too Human was a good game. Not perfect, but still good (apart from THAT unskippable death animation). 

 

Killer Instinct (the newest one) is the best fighter so far this gen.

Kingdoms of Amalur was better than Skyrim or Fallout, and rediscovered a lot of what made Fable 1 so great.

 

Also, Fable 1 was great.

 

Joust is a truly great videogame.
