Lately I have been completely satisfied with any new games I've delved into, but I'm confident in a few titles coming soon.
Final Fantasy XIII should be a great reliving of the series. I actually had a dream that it was identical to FFXII last night, not the most pleasant dream I've had of late. Don't get me wrong I have high hopes for XIII, but evidently my subconscious is skeptical.
Heavy Rain; Another title that producers feel is ground breaking and will define the next generation of story-driven games. Well I won't pretend to say that I hope they're wrong. I'd be great to see something new, something mature enough not to have comic relief on every street corner. I just hope I don't FEEL like I'm babysitting, which is actually a portion of the game. :roll:
After playing through Mass Effect 2 and allowing the nostalgia to wear off I realized that I was left wanting more. The story in entirety was lackluster and did preform to the standard the first set, which could be understandable because of it being part of a trilogy; The second story can't always reveal the core of the dilemma. I also felt that the dialogue between team members was not nearly as interesting as the first title. I wanted passion and anger(That I actually couldn't cool with just a string of words) and finally, I wanted a real, enthusiastic love scenario. I didn't want a screw buddy in the engine room that wouldn't be remembered by either party in a matter of minutes, I wanted a partner that would stand closer to me as we fell further into the trap of love. I wanted it to adversely affect my judgement near the end of the game and cause, what actual love does, rising action.
Whether you agree or not with my "beef" with our recent and coming soon titles, I still think there is a gap between perfect and present gaming experiences.
