@DaMan DMC4 was fun, as long as you didn't mind essentially playing through the same levels twice, only with a different character. It's some of the laziest design I've ever seen.
@TEA's rampant bullshit.
"Any dick who says Ace Combat was shit is not a gamer."
Or they prefer to play decent flight simulators, instead of My First Flight Sim, as I like to call the franchise.
I'm not even going to argue FFXIII. The game was bad design all through, and would have been terrible whether it had the freedom to roam about or not, thanks to its god awful story, terrible characters and paper thin gameplay. And *those* are not qualities the choice of format would have had any effect on.
"It doesn't feel right playing a Sonic game on a Nintendo console along side Mario."
That's funny. Sonic Colours is the most fun I've had with a Sonic game in years, and I only ever got a chance to play Sonic Adventure 2 when it appeared on the GameCube. Sonic Rush was also really good.
Again, the quality of the gameplay has absolutely nothing to do with the format. If you're claiming otherwise, you're a fanboy.
"Companies are greedy and thats all they care about. they don't care about the image they are destroying."
They are not destroying any image. Drinking Pepsi doesn't suddenly change the quality of Coke. Watching a DVD instead of a Blu-Ray doesn't stop a great movie from being a great movie.
Playing Tekken on the 360 doesn't mean jack shit to anyone but a fanboy. The game is exactly the same on either format, and it wouldn't have turned out any better or worse if it had remained a PS3 exclusive.
I will repeat this point for you again, in the hope that your pea-headed brain will be able to understand it...
THE ONLY REASON THESE FRANCHISES WERE EVER "EXCLUSIVE" IN THE FIRST PLACE WAS BECAUSE COMPETITION TO THE PS1 AND PS2 WAS NEARLY NON-EXISTENT
They didn't *need* to release most of these games on the N64, Saturn, Dreamcast, Xbox 1 or GameCube because 90% of the the gaming consumer base already had a PS1 or PS2.
This is a *fact*.
Are you actually delusional enough to think that if the market had been more evenly shared... if the same had the same share of the market as the PS1, or the GameCube and Xbox owned an equal piece of the gaming pie as the PS2 did, that companies wouldn't have been porting all their biggest franchise over to those formats as well?
If you do, you're completely delusional, ignorant, and retarded.
"SONY IS THE KING OF EXCLUSIVITY and 2011 PROVES THAT. THERES ONLY ONE PLACE TO ENJOY THAT TERM and THATS ON THE PS3.....THE END"
I won't disagree with this in the slightest. They are the bes when it comes to securing first party titles. LittleBigPlanet 2 is one of my favourite games of this year, in much the same way the first one was.
You're missing the point (as usual). There are just as many great third party games as there are first party ones, and it ultimately comes down to the games you want to play.
Batman certainly wasn't hurt being his multi platform. Neither was Red Dead Redemption. Or Vanquish. or any other number of titles. The vast majority of these are vastly better than the majority of exclusives that appear on any format.
But *every* format has great exclusives.
The Wii has great exclusives. I can't wait for The Last Story, which is looking phenomenal. I also want to give Epic Mickey and Kirby's Epic Yarn a bash.
The DS has great exclusives. I'm knee deep in Pokemon Black, and I have a back catalogue of great RPGs on the format that I need to sink my time into at some point as well - Dragon Quest IX, Infinite Space, Golden Sun, etc.
The PSP has great exclusives. I'm nearly finished my complete play through of Birth By Sleep, and I'm looking forward to the new Dissidia. I've sunk nearly 100 hours into the original.
The PS3 also has great exclusives. There's no denying that. Heavy Rain, LittleBigPlanet, Demon's Soul, Flower, Heavenly Rain... some of the best gaming experiences I've had.
The 360 may not have as many, but its still had some great ones. I loved Alan Wake, Lost Odyssey is one of the best RPGs I've ever played, and I love the Project Gotham games. I also think Xbox Live's selection of downloadable titles is vastly superior to PSN's.
You *really* want exclusives? Get a PC. That has 30 odd years of exclusives, of games that redefined the industry. Games that never have and never will work on a home console. I don't even know to start.
"I rather take dignity and respect over money any day but then again I'm just one guy vs a world wide corporation."
If your definition of "dignity and respecting" is risking the welfare of your company and other people's jobs for the sake of waving a flag for a certain console, I would seriously suggest re-evaluating your life.
You're a juvenile child, stuck in the playground, who never grew up out of his teenage mentality. You're stuck in the past, and you're an out-dated relic of a gaming template that hasn't be relevant for over half a decade.
