"been a while i don't have a console, maybe i should get a 360 to see whats the fuss is all about"
Well, to be fair, the Jrpgs like lost odyssey were kinda ok, and i actually liked banjo N&B.

But holy fuck, the "action" games are a massive pile of steaming shit, and the game on the picture "told" me hard.
Playing it is like playing a good game with an very annoying cousin that will punch you in the guts and steal the controller on all the actually good parts of the game, and will return it to you to play the boring ones.

And this cousin is present on pretty much all the action games on this console.

There was a time when I thought Other M would actually be good. I ignored the obvious warning signs, I figured "so what if it doesn't look as good as a game 8 years older than it? It's still in progress, and graphics aren't important anyway! Nintendo's never been known for good stories, but I'm sure they have some interesting plot. I can't wait to see what parts of the Metroid universe they shed a new light on! I'm sure Sakamoto knows precisely what he's doing, he made Super Metroid after all!"

I used to think that Nintendo had a certain set of standards, that there was just a certain level of quality they could never fall below, and that illusion was shattered for me.

The worst part is that Bioshock 2 did the exact same plot as infinite did, but better. The theme of Fatherhood which is shoved in Infinite in it's last 20% while in 2 it's a solid, realized theme that follows you throughout the game and culminates in Elanor matching your actions once she's released.

In infinite, it really does feel like it was changed from romantic lead to family tie for no other reason that to shock people who were expecting her to be the romance.

Battlefield 2

1942, Vietnam were so good. not to mention the mods like Desert Combat, Forgotten Hope and the weird ones like BF Pirates.

BF2 rolls around and its just nasty as fuck. they stripped out all the character 1942/V had and now its just 2 modern brown armies fighting each other in poorly designed brown maps. Desert Combat took the same modern military idea and did it way better, and it was fan made.

I think that's when I stopped playing multiplayer shooters. Looking back it looks like no mods worth a shit ever got finished except for "muh realism" arma wannabee

don't even get me started on the CoDified trash that is BF:BC and BF3/4

Not to mention most of the abilities for Infinite were ripped right out of 2 and Minerva's Den.

Minerva's Den did the twist ending much better than Infinite. MD kind of lead you into it with casual hints whereas Infinite dropped it right on your head all at once. The DLC of Infinite, at least BaS2, would have been good if they hadn't gone out of their way to destroy the lore surrounding Big Daddies from both Bioshock 1 and 2 in the process.

I'm absolutely positive that's because Levine is an egotistical asshole that saw someone else's story in one of "his" games was being praised so he felt the need to copy it and "do it better".

Not a game, but a console. The Nintendo 3DS. I got it in March 2012, too goddamn early for starters but I didn't care because I bought up into the hype. I ended up just playing DS games on it for a majority of time because the few games I played on there didn't impress me at all, and there was so little.

It also hurt a lot to hear about the 3DS XL getting released 3 months after I bought it, having things like a decent fucking battery life, a screen that isn't so goddamn tiny, and that is actually designed for bigger hands.

Runner up is LittleBigPlanet Karting. It was just ModNation Racers with Sackboy's face on it, but the developers said Sackboy could get out of his Kart and walk around so I thought it could be useful for making 3D platformers. They didn't even try to cover up that lie. Karting is an unstable laggy mess. Moreso than the regular game. It's like the devs wanted to make it as shitty as possible so that players would buy Modnation instead.

No, because they made it shittier, ruined lore with retcons and banal writing, removed runewords (YES RUNEWORDS FUCK !), made graphics shit for the time it released, made all characters same by virtue of making infinite respecs free at all times while not in combat (no character investment whatsoever, you can just remake your character into the flavor of the day / moment).

Removed character stats.

Need I go on ?

dead island

it was repetitive, enemy level scaling made killing them into a chore and made me just not want to kill anything, it was buggy as fuck, there were some cool ideas that just fell apart, and co-op managed to suck just as much. i got dragged into playing it with a friend at launch and i don't think i've ever regretted a purchase as much

I actually enjoyed H4's multiplayer a TAD more than Reach. Both were pretty subpar if not downright atrocious compared to the original trilogy.
Reach:
>HUR I BETTUR THROW MO GRENADES!1!
>I DON WANA DIE YET, ARMO LOK!!!1
Just ruined the entire pace of gameplay. not to mention the awful half-assed forge maps making up half of the playlists
The campaign was spectacular, though. So was the Forge. But it customs weren't the same after CoD sucked away 2/3rds of the population.
Halo 4:
>P-please g-guys, we're still Halo! I swear... ;_;
>Everyone just ends up using the most exploitable setup, just like any loadout based CoD esque game
>Sprint-based gameplay basically makes every game feel like Rumble Pit, getting killed out of nowhere, and generally tarnishing the strategic element of H1-3
The maps were pretty good, IMO. I like the BR.
The campaign was garbage, obviously.

I fucking preordered the CE. I've been looking forward to the 14th for several weeks, and I stayed up for the beta until 3am. Then It got delayed. The next time I had to get up at 6 to play, and when I got in my hype wasn't containable anymore. After it was over I spend the rest of that day trying to figure out how to play it without connecting to the server. I even found some streams a few days before the initial release, but I resisted them.
Only to be dissapointed. as soon as I started the game I already felt that something was off. It just didn't have that tight and smooth feeling anymore. I pretty much forced myself through 3/4 of the game because it was so bad. I don't have a single good memory of gaming since the day I started DS 2.

Yeah, because that's the only fun mode they kept.
Hunt is ok, but not as great.

I mean, the Evac mode was the shit, where actual alternate map versions were made specifically for that mode with multiple routes to the extraction point.

The Overrun mode, which was basically an arena type mode made the games so tense and competitive it was fucking esports level.

And lifecycle as well as queen morphs was the best thing ever, especially in a Survival mode.
Speaking of survival, all the maps had a place where the survivors (typically marines) could hole up and sit there, where every player was an important part of the defense. And the attackers (typically aliens) actually had to come up with a strategy to breach their defenses with amazing timing and teamwork with class and role variations.

compare to spyro 3 which it so poorly tried to copy.

>>
>>257824957

the combat was actually the best part of the game. there were a lot of different types of weapons and stuff.

the problem was that EVERYTHING ELSE WAS SHIT. If you don't know the story of 38 studios, basically it was a startup funded by Cut Schilling the baseball player. Curt played WoW and he had the bright idea to make his own MMO. He vastly underestimated the cost of making an MMO and so he eventually decided to ship this single player game as a way to recoup some money but it sold poorly and 38 studios folded.

Basically it was like playing an MMO except you were the only player. The level design was also horrendous because it was designed for an MMO, every level was a big empty hallway.

Girlfriend of 2.5 years dumped my ass out of the blue March 3rd. Had CE pre-ordered. Cancelled due to knowing rent just doubled. Got digital version on release day anyway after a year of anticipation. Just... fuck. I mean, it's not bad but I just got about half way and couldn't give a fuck. It's a chore to play due to the fucking level design and lack of creativity in anything beyond more enemies=challenge.

The girlfriend thing has ended up being one of the best things to ever happen to me (muh freedoms) but Dark Souls 2 was just a time soak. Dark Souls is still in my top three favorite games of all time but I honestly don't see myself playing 2 ever again. It was a shitty fucking March, man.

Much better and more refined.

Spyro 2 shaked the gameplay up a bit with enemies dropping soul things instead of gems to power a level specific gizmo which I didn't really like but is otherwise a solid game.

Spyro 3 has them dropping gems again and is by far the greatest spyro game ever when it comes to variety, length and re-playability.

Dynamic difficulty adjustment keeps it challenging at all times.

All the games are filled with amazing technology and great music too. The entire world geometry is an LOD mesh. Watch it in wireframe with an emulator it's crazy what they programmed.

See, I never understand why retards say this.

They literally converted every Pokemon to 3D, it's not like they just decided randomly to not make more new Pokemon, it's the start of a new gen in more ways than one and it needed to lay ground work. Any other complaint about it, sure, fair game, but seriously this is fucking stupid.

No, I'm asking how you can't have fun with a cheesy action game about over-the-top crazy bullshit with chainsaw swords and giant space machine guns mowing down ridiculous cartoonish enemies. Seriously, I have fond memories of smashing shit with my feet when I had a jump-pack strapped on.

My top three, with #1 being the most disappointing
3: Spore
2: Left 4 Dead 2
1: Star Wars: The Old Republic (the shitposting about it was fun but nowhere near makes up for it)

Everyone knows the story for Spore, not much to tell. It was a disappointment.

I probably dropped some 700 hours into L4D1 in the first year alone, hell, I probably dropped like 20 hours into the demo in the brief two weeks it was out (I soloed an expert tank in the demo in a multiplayer game, that alone was so fucking cool that I wanted to buy it). I was actually really fucking good at it, it was probably the only multiplayer game I can ever say I was actually e-sports material in (professional team invited me to play with them, but it was my first year in uni and I was worried I would be too busy). Fuck, I loved that game so much, and Valve promised they were going to add tons of new content to it.

Instead, they released L4D2 for the price of a full game and added all the content they said they were going to add to that instead. I didn't care too much about that, I was willing to drop money on it even if I thought it was a shitty move because I loved L4D1 so much. The real problem was that they completely changed all the fucking game mechanics. It didn't even feel similar; it was completely different in pretty much every way. Add to that the fact that it took 90% of the L4D1 community to it, effectively killing off one of my favorite games of all time, and it's one of the only things Valve has ever done that I've been legitimately pissed off about (and I still am even today). All the Jewing over hats and microtransactions and shit, I can just ignore that. But L4D2 killed the only multiplayer game I ever had a real passion for, and I don't think I'll ever forgive them for that completely.

But even that doesn't measure up to fucking SWTOR. Cont.

I honestly, genuinely thought Skyrim would be a return to form for Bethesda. That when that drunken asshole Kirkbride said that the lore was in good hands that it was something to believe in. That there'd be depth and complexity to the world, that it would address the nature of the gods and the turning of the Kalpa, that Alduin would be some otherworldly force that had to be defeated through extraordinary means.

I was so wrong. Why did I believe all those stupid things? Why did I let myself hope?

Fucking SWTOR. KotOR 2 is my single favorite game of all time. I think even if you dislike it and completely disagree with all the stuff in it, you have to at least admit that it explores an important topic in an interesting way.

But morality's always been my thing, and not many games really explore it seriously. KotOR 2 did that and more (and KotOR 1 was just a fun Star Wars romp). Not many games actually make me take a serious look at what I believe, and KotOR 2 actually managed to do that. In the end, I still don't fully agree with everything Chris was trying to say, but I get a lot of it, where it's coming from, and I agree with some of it. So I was really looking forward to what might be done with KotOR 3.

And then SWTOR came out. I knew early on it wasn't going to be a proper sequel to 2, but I was at least hoping that it would kind of continue from where it left off and go more for the kind of KotOR 1 kind of story, but in an MMO setting. Instead, they retconned like 90% of the stuff that happened in KotOR 2 and shit all over the people who loved that game and turned it into yet another patented Bioware Waifu Simulator in space, now with microtransactions. It wasn't even a proper sequel to KotOR 1; it was just a shitty WoW clone with a Star Wars skin and some plot that kind of related to what was set up in the KotOR series.

Every time Bioware or EA releases a new game that I think looks kind of cool, I'll look back on SWTOR and remember what could have been, but wasn't, purely because of corporate greed.

I'll definitely never forgive EA or Bioware for that fucking mess. I might buy their games if they really work on fixing their past mistakes, but I'm not going to forgive this one until a real KotOR 3 is out.

Also, here's an article on what could have been. I wanted to cry after reading this. At least Obsidian's finally doing well.

Basically this, I was extremely hyped for Machine for pigs despite it being made by TCR, got me the torrent on release day, waited for night, put my headphones on and turn off the lights. A few hours later when I reached the burning city setpiece, I knew that the devs stopped caring by then...

LoS2 was hyped as fuck to play as dracula and all the trailer footage was so well edited, have to give props to the marketing because they sure fooled me... the game still had godlike art direction in the past segments... it's a shame the art director left and the game's visuals turned to shit for the 2nd half of the game, but that's not the least of the game's problems

It was Oblivion for me (with Civ V killing whatever was left of my hope for the future.) I really believed all the radiant AI bullshit. I brought the special edition and the guide day off. Fuck it, fuck it all. What an awful game in every way.

L4D2 was just too easy and not as "grimdark" as the first one.

Melee weapons are too powerful and clear too many enemies/hit. Weapons are VERY numerous and their upgraded counterparts are encountered extremely quickly...

It stopped being a horror game and quickly became a sarcastically light-hearted zombie game.

I missed the free copy during the holiday so fuck them for not just making it free permanently
