>2007 was 7 years ago

You can go back to sleep, you woke up too soon.

The only marginally positive thing in that time has been the resurgence of "hard" genres like roguelikes, but even then they've kinda been mangled to hell and back.

FPS games still dominate the multiplayer landscape, with the exception of the resurgence of DOTA.

So everything old is new again.

From what I've read so far they seem like computers you can't maintain yourself.

The whole point of a console was to have your're friends over and play mario kart for 6 hours.
Online play shoulda stayed on PC, if it hadn't devs would have been forced to stay being creative.
>>
>>254263735
Video games died.
>>
The Resident Evil franchise has gotten worse
>>
Nintendo released a handheld with 3D support called the 3DS but it didn't give them enough shekels so they made a version without 3D support called the 2DS instead. Still no Half-Life 3.
>>
Episode 2 has no sequel yet.

Against all odds the PS3 defeated the 360 by a slight edge.

The PS3 actually ended up being better than the 360. I'm not even making it up.

All Dreamcast was was an arcade port machine. Only 2 games worth a damn that werent just arcade games was Shenmue and Code Veronica, the later of which got a superior ps2 port anyway. The controller was utter garbage too. I remember it taking 15 minutes to enter codes in MK Gold due to shitty D-pad.

Dreamcast was actually breddy gud. All the consoles of the 6th gen were worth owning.

Massive increase in the number of video game players over the past few years since 2009. Some alright games came out.
Consoles are a rip off but developers are shying away from PC due to piracy, and most developers in general just make mobile games now.

oh yeah, smart phones are much stronger now than they were before, so they can play some alright games.

Survival Horror is fucking dead, Resident Evil and Silent Hill have actually gotten worse

- Valve stopped making video games and now develops malware that forces you to run a client in order to access PC games.

- We've removed primitive notions of "ownership" by pushing people to buy digital-only copies of games at retail price.

- Hobbyists are now considered "artists" and go to conferences where they preach to publishers on how to make triple A games.

- E.A is still shit.

Starcitizen, a crowdfunded space sim, has almost reached 50 million dollars funding.

You pay for digital starships that you can look at in your hangar, while more hype news are posted almost daily.

It's amazing.
>>
>>254268893
The killing blow to me it feels like was the fact that it was $60 on release, and now you can probably get it for like less than $3 in such a short period of time.

All that fucking hype for nothing.

>Kirby's Rainbow Curse = Kirby's Canvas Curse
People have been asking for a new Canvas Curse for YEARS now and it's suddenly a bad thing when they do make one.
>Yoshi's Woolly World = Epic Kirby/Yoshi's New Island
Sequel to a game that came out in fucking 1995 that uses elements of a more recent game. No problem here.
>Bayonetta 2 = Bayonetta
Sequel to one of the best action games of our day and age, raises the stakes and greatly improves upon it's predecessor. By your logic ANY SEQUEL is equal to the game before it.

No, just no. The only good thing I can think that is better on the Dreamcast has more progressive scan games, but that makes the framerate tank in a lot of games.
Something like, just thinking off the top of my head, Burnout Revenge looks better than anything the Dreamcast has to offer.
>>
>>254272468

That's unfair, excuse me. Early PS2 titles like Jak and Daxter and Ratchet and Clank look better than almost all Dreamcast games.
