Kebab said:You serious!? I'm about 5-6 hours through and it is one of the only reasons (aside from The Last Of Us) that keeps me being a gamer. And I was a hardcore gamer back in the day! But for the past 3-4 years it's been a very tedious and depressing time for the fellow hardcore gamer, flooded with copy and pasted Call Of Duty's, FIFA's that have been the same since '07, Guitar Hero's slowly going into denial and don't get me started about how **** Final Fantasy has become since the release of XI...
Kebab said:Nothing has brought the gaming world forward in my opinion, it's been a continual straight line of progress (or lack of, for better word). I just think companies have been holding back for the release of the next-generation besides two in particular. The Last Of Us has proven that a game can be both cinematic and compelling throughout its gameplay without the need to skip through tedious amounts of talking, everything feels tight and I haven't been so much on edge since I played the original Condemned.
But with GTA V, I think its a huge breath of fresh air if anything. Its really shown how far gaming has come, and how much a system like a 360 and PS3 can really push itself to, so God-knows what we're expecting with the release of the next-gen! The whole game is just huge, and they've really gave us everything you'd possibly want in a GTA game. Saying this, I really didn't like GTA IV, I thought it was a snooze-fest and a turn in the wrong direction from San Andreas (which was unbelievable for its time), so seeing GTA V going that extra mile once again has given me a lot of hope.
Kebab said:So I'm a happy gamer for the next couple of months, eagerly awaiting for my PS4, not so looking forward to the lacklustre selection of release games (they look pretty **** if you ask me). Give me Kingdom Hearts 3 and I'll be even happier!
marc said:I'm going to wait for the ps4 until they bring out kingdom hearts 3, then I will try and get a bundle offer.
There is nothing else coming out that interest me so I will wait.
marc said:I've only ever played one Grand Theft and that was Vice City. I did not even play it I just drove round listening to the great sound track that I ended up buying lol.
Smithy said:Staying away from the dross that is COD and Fifa this year for as long as I can, refuse to give more money to producers who're taking the game industry to places I can't stand (You want a better weapon? PAY FOR IT! You want a stat boost? PAY FOR IT!).
Smithy said:And yeah Furie people are stupid (best way to sum up that post really ) but I draw a distinct difference between offering extra map packs (which I still can't stand the idea of) and offering a player a significant advantage because they're stupid enough to pay for one in games where the absolutely number one rule should be equality between players (head to head games). Allowing access to superior weapons or buying stat boosts is ridiculous.
Smithy said:If you'd seen the amount of money people pour into Ultimate Team which is nothing more than a glorified sticker book game you'd realise why EA are rehashing very little of the game modes I use an just focusing on it; my mate got lucky and got a rare player, sold him for coins, then sold those coins on eBay. He made £200. From an online stickerbook game. It's ridiculous.
Smithy said:Then there's also that the userbase on these games are horrific, the focus is all on getting clips for YouTube thinking they're going to be the next big star.
