Because if you lump arcade titles with retail games you're essentially admiting the Iphone/Ipad Cell phones are the greatest platforms ever.

Noone says you can't count arcade games, count them, just don't lump them together, otherwise be prepared for a ton of stupidity, WAY more then SW is used too, and be prepared for total Iphone domination because they get tons of AAA cheap games monthly.

Makes the PC look like the virtual boy.

No, because iPhone games aren't reviewed by Gamespot :)

Not my favorite, but in the real world I think many people would say yes.

We tend to forget that the opinions of those on a board like this are very much the minority. We are the niche.

I guess the prospect of downloadable/arcade games being added to the metagame (since, you know, the PS3 is losing by a pretty big margin in that category) is ruffling quite a few feathers...

lol I hate to say it, but yes. We are the small, but dedicated market. Probably more like the 5%, but of course like most statistics I'm pulling that # straight from my ass.

I am not a cow and I agree counting downloadable games is a bad idea. I think all systems including PC should count box retail as one group and all other in another group.

I'm not joking I'm making a point, if all games are equal, if 5$ arcade games are equal to 60$ retail games, then so are handheld games, IOS games, Android games etc...

The_Game21x is a moron, the whole question from Casey was for next gen, it wouldn't change anything this gen so it's impossible to be cow or lem bias. Plenty of cow haters, and well known lems agree you can't lump them together. Has nothing to do with being a cow or a lem...

Ahem...

with the upcoming release of the wii u and the start of a new gaming generation, it's time to review the system wars metagame rules regarding whether or not the previously uncounted downloadable games (xbla and psn games, for example) should indeed count towards a system's exclusive game list and be considered as equal to any other retail game.

CaseyWegner

Perhaps you can show me where he said anything about the new rules applying to the next generation only.

Good job calling me a moron and proving that you lack basic reading comprehension skills in the same breath.

But hey, this is far from the first time you've shoved your foot in your mouth so this doesn't surprise me.

What is it you don't understand? If a 5$ tower defense arcade game is equal to a AAA GOTY retail PC game, then so are handheld games and so are IOS and Anroid games, they are all games, they are all reviewed here and on Metacritic. Obviously this is nonsense, but CaseyWegner is trying to make this rule happen.

Like I said, nowhere in his statement did he say "this is for next gen consoles only", he said "with the upcoming release of the Wii U" and "count towards a system's exclusive game list", not "next gen systems".

Go back to third grade, please. You seem to have missed some of the basics.

Fine, you go ask. You're the one so desperate to uphold this silly little argument of yours (even though it won't matter since the majority is voting yes anyway) so you back up your own claim. You're fighting a losing battle but don't worry, we all have to lose sometimes. :)

my vote thread says nothing about adding new systems to the metagame. if that's what it was for, i would have mentioned it.

Look up at the gamespot tab, you see the IOS and Android tabs? Now maybe go over to Metacritic and click on the games section, check there too.
