Re: Question to Dave the Video Game Critic about the PS4?

These “the PS4 is overrated though I have zero experience with it” arguments are always good for a laugh.

Re: Shigeru Miyamoto Urges Developers To Embrace Subscription Services

Now even Nintendo is embracing this model??? Yikes. I’ve always said when the industry goes digital only, sub-only or streaming only I’ll be done with gaming. That *might* still be true, I’m not sure. I certainly won’t care about gaming as much, that’s certain. It’s a strange dichotomy where small i...

Re: VGC Tries Virtual Reality

About a year ago, I said— and still maintain— that Resident Evil 7 in PSVR is one of the most amazing gaming experiences I’ve ever had. I still look fondly back on that time I spent with it. Unfortunately, I haven’t found a potential second AAA game like RE7 to persuade me to buy the thing. There ar...

Re: A biased articles on why people should get a PS4 and Pro over the Nintendo Switch!

If Persona 5 isn’t considered a PS4 exclusive because a downgraded version released simultaneously on PS3, then you’re taking away most of the Switch’s games; the many Wii U ports. If you’re saying a PS4 or XBox One isn’t worth a purchase outside of the 1st party exclusives, what do you think the po...

Re: 2018/7/23: Xbox 360: Red Dead Redemption

I’m not a huge Rockstar fan, but I definitely think RDR is their finest game. Come to think of it, Red Dead Redemption is the only RS game I’ve finished. I’d probably give it a B or B+. I’m more or less on par with Critic and find it at least a little overrated. I also thought of it’s Top 10 ranking...

Re: A biased articles on why people should get a PS4 and Pro over the Nintendo Switch!

I’ve enjoyed my Switch, especially the portable mode. There’s lots of classic arcade games and shmups getting released on the Eshop as well as Wii U ports and some original games like Mario Odyssey and Xenoblade 2. But if you think the Switch has a library (or an exclusive) library anywhere close to...

Re: Horizon: Zero Dawn > Zelda: Breath of the Wild

More great points. I like the feedback as both are games I think most people would really enjoy. On Zelda’s story, I can see validity in the criticisms. Unfortunately, as recent Zelda games have opened up their gameplay they’ve retracted the story. At various times, you had motivation to go questing...

Re: Horizon: Zero Dawn > Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Some good responses, guys! I’m reminding myself that I brought up an unpopular conclusion to playing both games and I’ll probably be alone on this one. Typically, I play JRPGs if I want a great story. Western RPGs for me are all about the world and combat. What surprised me the most was just how eng...

Horizon: Zero Dawn > Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Let me start off by stating the obvious: my title may be clickbait, but I don’t want to offend. Just discuss. This is my opinion and though I’ve been posting here about 10 years, I’m still just a nameless, faceless guy on the internet. Grain of salt and all that. So, I’m a little late to the party o...

Re: Key to a good sandbox game?

My biggest requirement is *excellent combat.* It also helps if there’s a lot of variety in the combat, letting you choose how you approach enemies and situations. It’s why I’m so high on Horizon: Zero Dawn. Breath of the Wild is obviously an incredible game, but the combat in Horizon is 10x better, ...
