How do you all feel about this lack luster gen?
I personally can't wait till it's over and Microsoft and Nintendo get their shit together to save us from this horrible nightmare of no games.
Problem with Microsoft is they had no games last gen. Where was their Atelier? Where was their Neptunia? People cry it was the PS3 that had no games, but it was the 360 and their delusional fanboys that went without.
Handhelds have games, though not as many as last gen. Consoles are definitely a joke this go-around so far, though 2016 looks like they might finally get off their ass and try a little with these things. Overall though it's been a pretty shitty gen so far.
Its a workshop and I've been in more pussy than you can think of. But since you're being oh so generous, I'll let you explain to me what a dick in the ass feels like you fucking homo.
I think it's pretty much everyone is retarded but particularly Nintendo's advertising this gen.
The Wii U is defs not without it's issues, but the biggest one that I think removes a lot of audience is the big name 3rd parties aren't on it.
Next, even "gamers" don't know what the Wii U is, there's people to this day who think it's an extension of the Wii and not a brand new console.
Then there's the complete lack of advertising from Nintendo, which to be fair has gotten better, but not to the same level that sony and microsoft are advertising.
The last sort of nail in the coffin is that Nintendo just can't shake it's "kiddy" image, despite everyone loving Mario Kart and shit, they just don't want to buy the console.
That's my 2 cents. The Wii U is my only console that doesn't just gather dust. I won a ps4 and now that I've put destiny down for a while it's a ghost town and the xbone continues to disappoint now that I've played Halo 5 and realised it's complete trash.
>being a tripfag on /v/
>using a secure tripcode
>not even a clever name
>he thinks there is going to be another generation of consoles
When the NX dies in the cradle Sony and Microsoft are going to abandon any plans for another generation of console.
Despite the huge install base for the PS4, the library is still hot shit and more and more 3rd party developers are jumping ship to multi-plat and PC. The Xbone might as well be a joke. Unless you're a Cawadoooty dudebro or nignog looking to pick up this years Basketball and Football titles.
Nintendo may slap us in the face with another 3DS model upgrade, holding one highly sought after title hostage to try and force people to buy it, but given the lukewarm response to the 'New' 3DS that's going to be their last straw. Sony is likely done with portables for good with the PSP failed in the west, and the Vita just failed period.
It's a passing interest at best for me, much like triggering soggy-kneed cunts like yourself. You don't need to worry anymore though, Gladys - I've had my fun with you. Maybe in ten minutes we'll agree on something on another thread. Maybe I'll laugh at you for being a faggot again.
I hate modern gaming.
>why no JRPGs (I mean FFVI, Chrono Trigger, etc) not the weebo anime shit that comes out nowadays?
>why no fun racers (cart racing, wave race like games, off road games, etc)?
>why no 2d sidescrollers?
>why no 3d non-RPG games (Mario 64, Croc, Crash Bandicoot)?
>why games have 45 minute cutscenes?
>why games play like movies?
>Turn based RPGs
Old and decrepit.
Get a car, faggot.
>2D side scrollers
>not liking cinematic experiences
Move on, grandpa. It's not for you.
i don't buy it. all sony has to do is half-ass some old PC hardware into a blu-ray player and they sell fourty million of the fuckers in two years. even if nintendo somehow completely BTFOs themselves, that would just open up room for someone like valve, samsung, or sega to step in. all they have to do these days is kick back and wait for fifa and madden to launch on their hardware.
There's not a single game nowadays that can hold a candle to Chrono Trigger or FFVI.
>Get a car, faggot.
I can use that excuse for any game.
>Why no FPS?
Herr der, move to Texas and buy an assault rifle, faggot, derp!
>Move on, grandpa. It's not for you.
No doubt about that. The games of my generation are treasures. Will anyone remember Call of Duty Black Cocks 19 a decade from now?
Chrono Trigger, and probably the lion's share of your etc., are based off of current anime for its time, just like how current JRPGs are based off current anime for our time.
Uh huh. Same old 3d world with tons of walking around with nothing to do. Games that have 40 min of cinematics instead of properly incorporating exposition and narrative into the game itself.
Modern gaming = FPS, dudebro sports games (that seem to get worse every year for some reason), and League of Legends.
In case you didn't know who your precious Fire Emblem boy toy is based off of.
Yes, in a few decades people will fondly remember getting that sick killstreak they got on Nuketown and yelling "faggot" over the mic over and over, when they were 8 years old.
No it wasn't.
The only thing that made it "anime" was that it was designed by Akira Toriyama (DBZ guy). Other than that, it was a typical Squaresoft JRPG.
Chrono Trigger had gorgeous sprite graphics. RPGs nowadays look like an episode of K-ON (with the shit soundtracks to match).
Nah I'll say 6th gen PS2/NGC/GBA and Xbox was best last bit of the gen where devs tried something new and made unique characters and setting. Now everything is post apocalypse and super soldier solo the evil army.
>dudebro sports games (that seem to get worse every year for some reason)
i dunno about that man, i played NHL 2K16 on my nephew's xbone this christmas and it was super tight. better than any other hockey game i've ever played.
No stupid. Squaresoft was making a game, and they decided to hire an anime designer to design the characters. The end result was a game that still looked like a game. Unlike today where the games looks like anime.
I haven't played NHL 2K16 yet, but I'm glad to hear that it's good.
From what I've played:
Madden 16 - catching is ridiculous. can't shut off instant replay shit so I'm pressing O about 40 times to get on with the game
NBA 2K16 - defense controls are so tight and sluggish
WWE 2k16 - horrible metered system that is real annoying
Rory Mcelroy 16 - much worse overall than Tiger 15
The Show 2015 - pretty good, but online is laggy, and pitching animations are real slow sometimes. overall, this is a great game.
Project Setsuna is a JRPG heavily inspired by Chrono Trigger. Persona 5 is still technically SMT. I would also recommend Summon Knight, YS VIII and other weebtrash looking games.
I agree. I want something like Jak X or Midnight Club.
Plently on PC. Take your pick.
3D platformers are dead unfortunately. Ratchet & Clank is out soon and it looks like they're starting a new trilogy or so.
Just looked it up. It looks awesome.
Don't care about the weebtrash games. They're just fanservice nowadays.
>Plently on PC
Talking about consoles though. Obviously if you combine the efforts of the PS4, Wii U, Xbox One, Vita, 3ds, and PC, the gaming industry will hit most of their points.
>3D platformers are dead unfortunately.
>lack luster gen
I'm having fun OP. Of course, I'm a SEGAfag idort who's been picking up anything SEGA or a company they own puts out. Pick a company like capcom or square and follow them closely. Chances are, a few gems will shake out of those trees. I know I'll be kept quite busy for the rest of the year just on what SEGA has planned and is rumored to be putting out this year alone.
Actually here's some 2D sidescrollers:
Shadow of the Beast
Odin Sphere Leifthrasir
A Hat in Time
Certain levels in LBP3
Rime kind of
yeah everything good i've seen about WWE is INSTANTLY countered by something horrible, like the submission system or benoit bans
D platformers are dead
this just highlights sony's ability to accumulate profit despite their ineptitude. this guy wasn't even in their smash ripoff for crying out loud.
the suits don't even know who he is i bet. this is what happens when you put fucking betamax in charge of your video games. they just chase fresh new sources of profit while their house sinks into the lake.
>Shadow of the Beast
>Odin Sphere Leifthrasir
2 of those games aren't out yet. Never liked the LittleBigPlanet games. And Hunger looks like a 3desque game
>A Hat in Time
anime weeboo shit
Weird looking shit. But kinda interesting, I guess
Don't care much for the ADD riddled Galaxy stuff. Why no Mario 64 sequels?
This actually looks pretty good. Will def check out.

I agree, but whatever Sony is doing it's working for them, so more power to em. I was hoping MS would step up this gen an expand their genres. But then I read that the douche who runs X-Box says he's not interested in Cart Racing or Baseball (or tons of other genres most likely).
