Don't be silly! Recent games do NOT entertain you. You simply aren't intelligent enough to realize this fact on your own. Thank goodness for message boards to set you straight!

Don't mean to be a downer, oyster, but I wouldn't hold my breath. Our Sacred Gamer's Glen has been "discovered," exploited, and had an interstate built right through it. There's no going back. 

 


You are most likely right (unfortunately).  But you never know what may happen. I'm still hoping that the 'interstate' will fall to disrepair due to neglect and they will come back later and 'renovate' with turn-based coming back in the future.

i never thought FFX was that special, Tidus single handedly defined the stereotype of girlie-man, blitzball was lame, the whole sin story was just as lame as blitzball... I'll take DQ:VIII, Rogue Galaxy, Demon Souls, Odin Sphere, SMT titles any day over that Square Enix made crap... I would much rather see a Dark cloud 3 over another Final Fantasy title... Resonance of Fate is gonna pwn FF13 BTW.... and lol to whatever happened to games like Jak and daxter... last I checked they still make them, and they are just as good, sure there hasn't been a next gen one, but I'm sure since Ratchet and Cl;ank have seen much success, naughty Dog will take a break from Uncharted to make their next Jak title... KH, really? last I checked it wasn't that long ago since KH2, and they are working on KH3, KH 350whatever days came out on the DS a few months ago, just as good as either 1 or 2, and KH: Birth by Sleep is coming for the PSP. There was a crash title on 360, but it was crap (I never liked Crash anyways) most of the games you mentioned were very childish ones that many gamers don't care about... Spyro.... ROFLMFAO

 

 

  Everyone please buy Yakuza 3 (March 9, same day as Final Fantasy, but really who is waiting for that chick flick?)

What's ruined gaming for me this gen is the mass inclusion of Multiplayer, especially in RPGs.........i don't care how well it's implemented, either. WKC was a day one buy, until online was implemeted.

 

Fortunately, i have RPGs from the start of the PS1 era on.....besides, i don't mind saving money by not buying what i don't like.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I think what really needs to be pointed out, however, is the games are being developed for this gen's gamers. Even though us old olk still pay the price for games, the focus is now on what drives the 21st century gamer.

 

The past was great, but imho the future(except for a few titles) is no longer looking too rosy.

 

As an example, the only 4 games i have slated to purchase in the next year are Atelier Rorona, Sakura Wars(PS2), 3dot Heroes, and Ar tonelico 3(when it gets localized). From what i have seen over the last year or so, Atlus and NISA seem to be the only 2 companies who understand that we still exist, therefore they earn my money.

Yes, Hobbun. And hopefully a few developers will find a way to keep their subversive CBGB clubs hidden (and profitable-enough-to-keep-their-doors-open) on the outskirts of town.

i find it funny that ppl keep bashing graphics and such, to the op all those game u listed had top of the line graphics for there time and puched the ps2 to the limit. now that that limit is set even higher with a new system ppl act like its a sin for wanting devs to reach for it like they did last gen. rpgs were notorious for pushing the envlope on graphics more then any other type of game. they broke fluid gameplay so they could have all spells summons and speical moves have super eye candy, and packed in loads of CG movies that still look great now. so its always funny how u talk about how rpgs should not be about graphics when high hd graphics and take a story to a whole new level........just look at heavy rain when it comes up being able to see emotion on your partys face thats doesnt look clunky or funky looking cab be moving

Dragon Age felt like a game from the good old days in my opinion. Any fan of Baulder's Gate and KOTOR should like it.

To be honest, I am not sure exactly what you are getting at (especially with the abbrieviation of CBGB), but I do feel there is a chance of the more 'traditional' type of gameplay returning again. Things run in phases, people may tire of our "faster, faster, faster" phase and developers could very well revert to worked in the past. 

 

But, if they don't and the traditional RPGs do vanish, then I guess it will also be a good thing for me as I will have more free money as it won't be spent on video games.

Good, make fun of and insult someone to prove your point.  What a good method of  arguing a point.  I wonder why everyone doesn't do it.

 

In case you can't tell I'm being sarchastic.

 

we like to be respectful around here, please if you are going to comment keep things friendly.  We all are entitled to our own opinion, by all means share yours.  But no reason to tear someone else down because it differs from yours.

Yes! No! wait...what was the question again?
