Re: Most hypocritical video game reviewer moments?

I'm not a fan of the Irate Gamer, who basically stole the Angry Video Game Nerd's gimmick, and sometimes his reviews line for line. However, I don't think its hypocritical to complain about one game being too hard and another being too easy. Every one will have their "just right" difficult...

Re: Stadia FAQ

From the company’s perspective, why do they want control over the games? What’s the difference (to them) whether you spend $250 a year on physical games or $250 a year on a streaming service? The game companies believe (and are probably correct) that people will spend more in an always online envir...

Re: Stadia FAQ

I want the Stadia to fail, but I fear its the future of gaming, even if this model fails. The game companies want the games to be streamed to you like a service like Netflix. That means they have complete control over the product. Gamers on the other hand lose out, especially if a product is removed...

Re: Most polarizing video games and why?

Most Polarizing game of all time might be Minecraft. Some people love it as a virtual lego set. Other people find it to not be video gamey enough to be fun. I mostly fall into the second category. I just can't get into it.

Re: Nintendo Switch Lite announced

A real D-Pad is nice, but other than that, I'll stick my normal Switch. I play this thing so much on the TV in multiplayer, and that matters more to me. Also, this doesn't have rumble, and considering how good the Switch's rumble is, that's a huge letdown. If they just made a real joycon (not a chea...

Re: First CD versus vs First Streaming Consoles

I hate hate hate the idea of streaming consoles. This will completely remove any ownership of games. As soon as those servers go down, you can never play your games again. However, I assume this is what the game companies want. They want complete ownership of games themselves, and make gamers have t...

Re: Games that are perfect examples of great design?

Metal Gear Solid (PS1) comes to mind because all of its levels were designed to let you employ your stealth skills in various imaginative ways. And the boss encounters (like Psycho Mantis) are classic. So I saw a PS classic at Target the other day for $29, and almost grabbed it for MGS, which I’ve ...

Re: Games that are perfect examples of great design?

Unreal Tournament (Original 1999 version for PC) - Pretty much every element of the game is perfect. Great level design in all of its game modes. All the weapons are fantastic. The game has a great look. The techno music is fantastic. The single player mode is great with the best bots ever in a FPS....

Re: Should Yooka-Laylee have the controversial icon or no?

After looking at what happened to PewDiePie (posted pro nazi material) JonTron (posted racist nonsense) and Projared (got caught sending photos of "little Jared" to underage girls), it would probably be best if game developers avoided putting youtube "celebrities" in their games ...

Say a good thing about every video game system you have played.

Internet forums seem to be full of stupid "console wars" with people for some reason trashing game systems. I think that's stupid, so in this thread, say something good about ever game console you have played, or at least some of them if that takes too long. I'll start. Some points may be ...
