Since PC gamers seemingly can't figure anything out without being told directly, I will try to explain this as best as they can understand.

OBJECTIVES:

[] Read the OP (Opening Post).

[] Get beardmad.

[] Post your shitty-ass, biased list.

[] Attempt to justify your taste in gaming by putting down console gamers' lists.

HINTS:


-Keep your eyes open, look down, and read what the text says.

-Click the "reply" box. Write shit. Click "submit." Act superior. Don't shave your neckbeard.

-When someone doesn't agree with everything you say, click "quote," dance around the question like a condescending asshole, click "submit."

This is super duper open-ended since we're not telling exactly everything you need to do, step by step, even though it'll probably have the same end-effect anyway.

I am limiting it to one entry per franchise to make the list more interesting. Don't need Mario filling the whole list (counting all of them under the same title, Mario Kart, New Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Galaxy, Mario & Luigi, Paper Mario, Mario Strikers: Charged, etc.). The generation is limited to games released on the Wii, DS, PSP, PlayStation 3, XBox 360, and games on the PC from the years 2004-2013.

 

10. Dark Souls (not the Dark Souls: Prepare Edition, though, so it doesn't count towards the PC) (PlayStation 3, XBox 360)


9. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii)


8. Donkey Kong Country Returns (Wii)


7. LittleBigPlanet 2 (PlayStation 3)


6. Alice: Madness Returns (XBox 360, PlayStation 3, PC)


5. Pokemon Black 2/White 2 Version (Nintendo DS)


4. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (Wii)


3. Advance Wars: Days of Ruin (Nintendo DS)


2. Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Wii)


1. Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn (Wii)

Wii: 5 Games

PlayStation 3: 3 Games

DS: 2 Games

XBox 360: 2 Games

PC: 1 Game


Funny how PC gamers call the Wii a great "complementary console," when this list just proves they aren't getting much themselves, and the Wii is, in fact, kicking its ass.

This is straight up the worst list I've ever seen.

It's just so bad. Are you really made that this gen has been terrible for the core Nintendo gamer? 

You're clearly basing this on your opinion or some jaded Nintendo fanboy who hasn't touched a game on the PC or the majority of Xbox 360 or PS3 games this entire generation.

Do there are the Top 10 Nintendo games of this Generation, right? LOL!! Poor choice. Where the hell is Metroid and XenoBlade? What a joke.

Why are Dark Souls and LBP on this list? Those aren't Nintendo games. lol!!

So what's your argument against these games? Why don't they deserve to be on here? Please, indulge me. I never get a legitimate answer, just the same old, "I'm going to express your list is bad in about four different sentences instead of actually making a substantial argument. That way, I can get away thinking I actually put forth something reasonable without fear of being contradicted." Arguments. Please.

Opinions?

Jeez it isn't rocket science. Hence why you made a thread asking for people's lists to begin with.

Or maybe not... the OP is starting to look like a blog...

I have a few questions:

Why wouldn't Dark Souls on the PC count?

Aside from coming out about a year later. it has all the content of the console versions, plus some PC specific features (mod support).

-------

What is your source?

Is this a list from some site, or is it based on your personal preferences?

If latter is the answer, then why is this not in your blog space, instead of taking room on SW frontpage?

Because the original version is better than the Prepare to Die Edition.

Also, you're supposed to post your own list as well... See how everyone else did? Do I need to directly tell you for you to get it? Sorry, but that's not how it works outside of PC games.

Be warned, though, I'll probably make fun of yours. ;)

Actually, he isn't asking for anyone's list. The thread is formed as a closed way for him to state his personal preferences, which is suited for a blog post.

Yeah found that out a little afterwards. Should have read the OP instead of just looking at the games.

Still you would think if you were to show a list that you would want to see other people's input as well. Go figure that Dras does something entirely different.

You know what, I'm just going to post it anyway. **** it, I want PC gamers to know they've fallen for the trap and that their brilliant minds weren't enough to detect the truth. ;) I guess you don't learn everything in Starcraft, huh?

How does Portal 2 have good design when it discriminates what walls you can place your portal on for no other reason than to restrict your solution to what the developers intended? If it really was masterfully crafted, it would be more multi-layered and still challenging without obvious fixtures put in place to prevent other viable solutions. Plus other stuff about how the outside levels were too focused on simply placing your portal at a far to reach area and stuff.

I would expand on this, but PC gamers are just going to write it off without a response. They're so far into their biased way of thinking, they can't even consider another opinion. I made a good case against Portal 2 (there's more, but those were the big things), and they can't even tell me why it's wrong.

Why critic others lists when we can't critic yours?

Critique.*

Because you didn't give a proper critique. You gave no reasons at all. You all just said my list was shit and left it at that. Maybe you could say, "Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn has a poor presentation and many hiccups in the stories in which the characters respond unrealistically in such instances as ____________ and ____________. As psychologically indicates, the motivated reasoning would have _______________________."

That's what console gamers call an intelligent debate. It's more than just ridiculous hyperbole and throwing out all the adjectives you know.

I made a good case against Portal 2 (there's more, but those were the big things), and they can't even tell me why it's wrong.

Honestly I added that just because it just sprang to mind.

Most of the game is divided up into story puzzles and levels, unlike the first Portal which did levels than story puzzles. I didn't mind some of the story puzzles being more dependent on moving from place to place and not so much actual strategy, mainly because it keeps a certain momentum in the game. The pacing is much better than Portal because of this, and actually looking at the innards of the place with a quick romp is actually enjoying, just so you can see how Aperture and such looks like away from the tried and true test rooms you are used to going through.

Overall there are some fairly inventive puzzles outside as well too. Not all of it is just based on positioning portals near the next ramp. I remember a ton of the slime and gravity ones outside of the test rooms, and many were actually very creative and fun. The creativity didn't make the puzzles too hard where it can annoy you, but not too easy that it bores you. It certainly helps that a lot of things in the game look cool in motion as well, from your first person flying through a portal and the puzzles with the companion cubes. :)

LOL it wouldn't matter what anyone said, you would still discount what anyone said as not proving you wrong.  Portal 2 is a comical puzzle game where most of the enjoyment comes out of hearing the commentary by Wheatly and GladOS.  The puzzles were only somewhat challenging (I blame it being on the PS3 for being so easy) but they weren't really why the game was so big.  If you want a challenge why don't you check out some of the levels created by other users or some of the harder levels on COOP?

Based on the games that stuck in my head the most or I played a lot.

 

1. Ico and Shadow Of Colossus HD Collection - (Lol this game has won this gen and last gen, will any future game ever beat these?)

2. Disgaea 4 - (200+ hours well spent, loads of laughs, great gameplay. Everyone should give this game a try :) never know it could be your favorite)

3. Bioshock - (Craps all over Infinite, in its time)

4. Uncharted 2 & 3  - (awwwww this series is so awesome)

5. Halo Series - (excluding Halo Wars, sucked, all other Halo's were great)

6. Journey - (One of the most beautiful & Unique games ever created)

7. LittleBigPlanet 2 - (Fun with the Family, Many hours spent playing.)

8. Fallout 3 - (Has not aged well, but when it first came out, I thought it was the bees Knees)

9. Heavy Rain - (Oh yes I loved this game, a game movie that allows you to determine the outcome)

10. Tomb Raider - (OMG great Job, this is the best Tomb Raider game since PS1 games)


Honerable mentions for Great Games this gen I also loved

- Portal 2

- Gears Of War Series

- Alan Wake

- Ratchet And Clank Future Series

- Resistance 3

- Donkey Kong Returns

- Mario Galaxy 1 & 2

- Killzone 2 & 3

- Braid

- Guacamelee

Okay, legitimate critique: why doesn't dark souls prepared to die edition count on your list?

Because I am judging these games based on the time they were released somewhat. Dark Souls was very impressive on October 4, 2011. Not as much so in 2012 with the little extra content it offered and the counter-intuitive control scheme on the PC mixed in. By then, there had already been other comparable RPGs, like Dragon's Dogma, Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story, and other such games that, while not necessarily as good as Dark Souls, did challenge its position and offered a similar approach.

So playing through Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition on August 24, 2012 wouldn't have been as thrilling. It's like watching Gertie the Dinosaur after its prime (but obviously not as much so). Then again, PC gamers didn't get any of the games I mentioned... so I guess their standards were probably lower anyway.

So what you're saying is that Dark Souls doesn't hold up? How is it one of the best games this gen then?

No, it does but it was more impressive in 2011 than 2012. The additional content wasn't enough to make it more impressive as a 2012 title. Obviously when there are more games to compare it to, it won't seem as impressive, even if it is still the best.

***1*** Flight Simulator X. Why? My field of work is related to weather. Plus, a good part of my life was dedicated to weather and aviation. FSX is the only game I know so far where I can input real-world weather and have a degree of accuracy in the way clouds and obstructions to vision are rendered. Plus, there's no shooting or killing. It's simply the serenity of flying among the clouds.

fsx2012-04-2105-57-48-92.jpg

2. IL2 Pacific Fighters. Technically, this is last-gen. But, the thread rule says from 2004 onwards. So, I'm counting this. I love WW2 aviation as a hobby. That means I like it in scale models, books/magazines, and in video games. Sure, I like to fly around. Once in a while, I want to shoot at something and re-live in an accurate way, the various tactics used by the major combatants in the air war of WW2. The IL2 series reproduce these faithfully.

PF4_zps70797e24.jpg

3. IL2 Cliffs of Dover. This was supposed to be the successor to the IL2 line. Unfortunately, a glitchy release coupled with questionable AI and being a resource hog resulted in terrible reviews. I think those dings have been fixed and Cliffs of dover to me is good for a few rounds of intense dogfights during the Battle of Britain.

launcher2012-01-1819-33-24-62_zps8332746 

4. Hard Reset. I love the run and gun FPS of old. This game is the perfect fix. No realism required. No logic. No stupid story. Just gimme my gun and start the fireworks. It's sci-fi. It's loud with lots of explosions. I love it!

hardreset20130125005918.jpg

5. The Uncharted series. Yup I like them all, even UC1. I like adventure games and I consider the UC games as adventure with action elements.

UC2Cap-13_zps496b5fa8.jpg

6. FIFA 2013. Sports is the one genre that keeps me gaming on consoles and FIFA just happens to be my favorite:

328577.png

7. The Crysis games. Like the UC series, I like all of the Crysis series. It's teh only series that really makes me feel like the Predator in the Predator movies:

XYwhMV1.jpg

8. The Killzone games. Sure. I rag on their graphics and grumble about KZ2 as having the worst bullet sponges. They're linear as hell and generic as they come. But, they're action-filled almost at every corner and have tons of options for singleplayer. Sounds great too. So, despite all my belly-aching, I still love the series and looking forward to KZ4.

KZ3-Cap-8_zps8c1abb3d.jpg

9. Far Cry 3. It's too easy. But, I love exploring its world when I need my open-world fix. I'm a sucker for tropical islands.

screenshot0193.jpg

10. The Total War games. Lots of killing at a massive scale with me playing as general. Love it.

[QUOTE="Drasonak"] Far Cry 3's story in a nutshell: "We brown people need the help of a single white cis male who has not training in combat at all to cast out the other brown people. Ooga-booga magic ceremonial, spiritual bullshit, 'cause that's what brown people do. You should be really sad that this one white person died, because that is equivalent to a whole person, unlike the millions of brown people slaughtered by the organization's hands. Oh, and we're in tune with nature and stuff and wear tribal clothes because our culture sucks since the European's decided not to **** with it." You would think it's the late 19th, early 20th century if we weren't on the Internet or playing video games right now.menes777

The awful story doesn't take away from the fact that Far Cry 3 is a good game.

I was thinking the same thing.

It was actually quite disappointing. Instead of falling on basically racist streotypes and very basic conflicts, they could have really developed it into so much more than it was.

That being said, the gameplay was fun as hell.

This actually could've been a really good thread had TC's personality been less repulsive.

The only entertaining part of the story in FC3 was Vaas and that had a lot to do with the great voice acting.  It's a pretty generic action movie plot with some decent into madness portions thrown in, which actually got annoying because they turned many of the end "boss" deaths into hallucinogenic quick time events

Yeah, and to say, most games have generic action movie plots, filled with the usual cliches and stereotypes. If the gameplay is great, who cares?

Story, writting and characters are only worth discussing if devs are trying to sell a game on that premise while putting some actual effort into it... else, you know it'll be bad to mediocre.

Which Xenoblade? Xenoblade Chronicles sold pretty well for a Wii game. You forget that the demographic for Wii-only gamers is quite different from the PS3 and Xbox 360 demographics.

The latter 2 stress hardcore gaming while the Wii is for Nintendrones looking to get high off of another Mario kart racer.

Just the fact that it was a Wii exclusive hampered its sales potential.

Still didn't do all that well. Okay how about Knights in the Nightmare? A game that you've probably never even heard of but is great nonetheless? think it sold something like 30k or something really low like that.

Just because YOU think it's good doesn't mean it is. Just like how you cows go on and on about the greatness of that sub-1 million selling exclusive on the PlayFail3 doesn't mean the rest of the world agrees with you.

If that game were as awesome as you're claiming it to be, sales would have been off the charts. It's the market. You can't churn out a big pile of crap and expect everyone to fall head over heels for it.

^wow it actually got worse

[QUOTE="freedomfreak"][QUOTE="Drasonak"]It's good groundwork, though. Could you maybe just put a razor in his hand? Hope I'm not pushing you to your limits with this. :PDrasonak
I'll try. Just send me a picture and I'll see what I can do.

Do you have any pictures of Gabe Newell being frightened? I think that'd work well with Sothe behind him, razor in hand.

Gaben doesn't get frightened.

How could he when he's a full on black smith

Nope, it should be "'favorite games this gen...'" American spelling is the only correct way, just as white cis males is the only accurate way of portraying a hero in video games, right? It's funny how you guys will get mad about something as petty as me omitting a superfluous "u" that doesn't affect how you read the word, but you all don't care about actual important issues.

Neither of those seem very important unless you're a douche

Just looked around. Hard to find a pic of Gabe being scared. I like the idea with Sothe in the background though. For whatever it's worth, I made this. [spoiler]  [/spoiler]

Muscles need to be supersized. Those are borderline PC gamer arms. You might as well put a fedora on his head!

Edit: I kept getting error messages that won't let me post or edit for a couple of minutes. Is anyone else being met with, "You can't post 20 messages in three minutes?" I wasn't even doing that...

He got it right. [QUOTE="Drasonak"]Funny how PC gamers call the Wii a great "complementary console," when this list just proves they aren't getting much themselves, and the Wii is, in fact, kicking its ass.

I'm not, no worries. That would be terrible ignorance on my part. Actually, some of my family is from the US.
