All About firefox10210
I did it- I found a Wii. I'm gonna be reviewing Wii games soon, I.E Galaxy, Twilight, Wii Play, GHIII, etc.
Honestly, I'm growing weary.
In my current state of mellow sadnes I've taken to the internet (probably not a very wise decision) to vent out a few frustrations I'm having with the industry recently, in a pretty specific area.
Guild Wars 2. The game many of us (including myself) have been waiting for since 2008. 4 years ago.
The Old Republic. A game announced later than Guild Wars 2 in the same year.
The Old Republic has been released, with a few minor launch hiccups, in grand fashion.
Guild Wars 2 has not even seen the eyes of a beta, or a projected release date.
As much as I respect Arenanet as a developer, as they did a pretty phenomenal job on the original Guild Wars, I'm beginning to lose faith in their strategies. They are really dragging out this release, and if the game isn't released by LATEST summer of this year, they will not only lose a large market but the game will suffer dearly in technical regards.
The Old Republic is a very polished game, and honestly, Guild Wars 2 practically has to be eons better to justify such a drawn out release date. I'm afraid this won't be the case, to my sadness.
Don't fail us Arenanet. It will be the end of you.
Halfway through 2011 and realizing the amazing games that are sure to come later this year and in the near future, I think it's only right that I personally recollect on and share with my fellow Gamespot members my personal best games of the past decade. I've played all these games (obviously), and they've all really stuck with me; let me know how you guys relate to the list and if you have any different opinions.
BEST GAMES OF 2000-2010
4. Gears of War [X360]
5. GTA: San Andreas[XBOX,PS2,PC]
6. Halo 3[X360]
7. Mass Effect 1 + 2 [X360,PC,PS3](can't decide )
8. Star Wars: KOTOR[XBOX,PC]
9. Halo 2[XBOX,PC]
10. Fallout 3[X360,PS3,PC]
Narrowing down the top 3 games of the millenium's first decade was a real challenge...but I trust my judgement and I won't be able to post this blog without having been fully confident of these decisions:
3. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion [X360,PS3]
Best RPG of all time? Debatable. Best RPG of the decade? Without question.
2. Half-Life 2 [PC]
Half-Life 2 is not only one of the best first-person shooters of all time, but it's mind bending puzzles and groundbreaking technological feats for its release date were unparalleled at the time. I'll truly never forget this game (and never stop playing it.)
1. GRAND THEFT AUTO IV [X360,PS3,PC]
As much flack as I'm going to get for this, I couldn't really decide where to put this game. I was having trouble deciding how low or high on the list it should be ranked; 5th? 4th? After a while, however, I finally realized the problem: it wasn't number one. Grand Theft Auto IV is my personal best game of the decade; why you ask? It shattered all expectations; the world needed a GTA game and it delivered on all fronts: amazing graphics, compelling story, realistic physics, interesting characters, and a sort of charm to its setting that will never and never should be forgotten. GTA IV was a true masterwork on all fronts and not recognizing it as one of [if not the] best games of the decade would be doing it an injustice.
Thinking of doing a let's play/commentary on this game. Let me know what you guys think of this first video, I'd appreciate any feedback.
