    I keep trying to get excited about getting a console, but once I have a look at the available games, I find only 1 to 3 games per console that I would like.

    Actually, there are at least 15 games I want on the 360, but almost all of them are available for my PC. So, I decided that it would be stupid to get a console for a couple of games while there are plenty of games I want for my PC.


    I want a fairly scary (not necessarily terrifying) first person castle/dungeon game in 3D with cutting edge graphics. The graphics should be you walking through a photo-realistic castle or something.

    And there's Gears of War 3 that will probably never see a PC release. Excuse me....I've gotta go cry in a corner. :( ;(

    sigh yep :(

    this e3 for me at least has highlighted how dull and unimaginative the games industry can be. Let's all copy the wii! Lets all do 3D! (even tho i am impressed by the 3ds so far and i am not a ninty fan typically).

    and then there's this:

    [​IMG]

    At first I found that pic funny but its true! Look how many similar FPS are coming out, they're all the bloody same! :

    halo reach
    gears of war 3 (not FPS but still kinda similar for my point)
    killzone 3
    resistance 3 (not announced but inevitable)
    call of duty black ops
    crysis 2
    fear 3
    medal of honor

    [​IMG]

    I feel like i'm stating the obvious now to some people but wow, games industry sucks. What happened to my favourite past time? :(

    Galaxy 2 will restore your faith. If that doesn't work, you're screwed.

    Microsoft muscled in. That's where it all started to go wrong.

    What's the similarity? That they're all fps's? I mean, some of them are similar, like CoD and MoH, but Halo is much more arcady than the others. And I'm also not really sure why you put GoW in that list since it isn't really similar to the other titles.

    They all to me seem like action games with not that much depth to them about space marines/soldiers in modern combat. I'm just becoming apathetic now really i guess.

    All the games now for me are blurring together :|

    nope, reach has been in development since halo 3 shipped. ODST was started afterwards and, as a shorter game using the halo 3 engine/sandbox, was completed before but is still in a way the last bungie halo game... if you follow.

    I just watched the Miyamoto Zelda presentation (I only caught a YT trailer) and it looks amazing. I thought TP was boring because of the wolf, but this seems 100x better.

    I kept trying to un-highlight this image. There a bit too much blue in that interface, I think.

    I interpreted their thoughts as them finding that playing as a wolf in TP was boring, so they would probably find playing as a wolf with similar gameplay for 30 hours or more in Okami to also be boring.

    I liked Okami. I just agree that it looks a lot better. Probably should have been more specific.

    Yeah, I loved Okami but really disliked playing the wolf parts of TP. Weird, but I guess in a Zelda game I really want to focus at Link and also in Okami I knew I was playing a wolf with awesome and unique art stylings, so it was different and better. I am very excited for a more back-to-basics Zelda.
