This generation sucks dick
it has been 2 years and the games are fucking shit
tons of games are also long running series that have already peaked
In previous generations, there were way better games in the first two years
When older games on PC and Gmod are more fun than new games, you know this generation is fucked
>nearly every good developer of the past has been absorbed and cannibalized by EA and Activision
>LucasArts now nothing more than a brandname to be whored out to Disney
>there will never be a good Star Wars game ever again
MFW people say they are excited about this generation (that soviet stare is my normal face
GTA V is literally the only big budget title I've paid for at release in almost five years.
Any other games I've picked up were either cheap Steam sale releases, bargain bin oldies from Half-Price Books, or
There's literally nothing new worth buying
no retard, they were better games period
notable 7th gen games from 2005 and 2006 (360 and PS3)
Kameo: Elements of Power
Condemned: Criminal Origins
Call of Duty 2
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter
Hitman: Blood Money
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Double Agent
Marvel: Ultimate Alliance
Gears of War
Resistance: Fall of Man
Now come up with a better list for games of the 8th generation. But you won't because you're a shitposting retard
I wholeheartedly agree with you OP
>8th is pretty much 7th gen with extra "pay more" and online cancer and the usual bunch of shit we already got but shinier
>They've been out for 3 years, but all they have to show for it are the same old rehashes and supposedly powerful CPUs that are still stuck a gen behind
>no backwards compatibility with all 360 games, just the most popular shit that's been played to death and even some of those are fucking up
>no backwards compatibility with PS3, but HEY! Now you can buy your PS2 games again with trophies to earn! So exciting!
>Wii-U is just the same shit as Wii, but with a few good gems like W101 and Splatoon, and with a shitty pad, same meh grafix and no multi-plats like the Cube
>NX is supposed to be coming soon, but it'll be just the like Wii-U in that it comes out early but still fails, and Nintendo will be in the same situation as Sega was with DC
>you can spend a bit more on PC, and get a shitload of stuff on Steam (7th and 8th gen games) or by emulating now (which is up to PS2)
>the tech ceiling is too high now, and less new games are being made by smaller name devs, which is slim pickings for anyone unless you love AAA games and sequels>>322745192
>99% of my favorite vidya series are dead thanks to the apocalypse that Black Ops started with every dev both east and west needing those sales with every game and shitting them up in the process with rampant casualization, cinematic gameplay and bad design choices a plenty
I've had more fun with my handhelds than any console shit I bought this gen. I'm more than ready to drop this shit altogether.
This is not true, some big names of the industry are branching from AAA companies, people like Michel Ancel, who's making a game with his new indie studio without Ubisoft, Patrice Desilets founded his own studio and he created Assassin's Creed, the guy who created Mafia and Mafia II is also working to make that medieval kingdom game. There's still hope
>Now come up with a better list for games of the 8th generation.
literally impossible since any possible list I came up with would instantly be dismissed without a thought and you know that
I could do the same for your stupid list. But I wont, because this is a retarded debate.
Do it, I compiled a list, what else would be put in it now? Bloodborne and tons of sequels?
In the list I made there's a good pattern of new IPs that tried new things, like Prey with the whole gravity shenanigans, Dead Rising and Condemned. Nowadays if you make a list of the best 2014 and 2015 games it will become obvious that even "new" IPs like Bloodborne are more of the same old all over. Same for Watch_Dogs, been there done that.
