How many here go for collectors editions ? What goodies make you go for them ? Art books, steel cases, statues, making of DVDs, etc ?

 

Myself I tend to if the extras are physical things like steel cases and statues. I used to mount them on display  in my gaming room. DLC and software goodies are turn offs for me.

Yeah the statue is what prompted me to preorder the Watch Dogs CE. I just hope I can pull together the $130 for it by November and I would be estatic if I could upgrade my graphics card before buying it.

My problem with Collector's Editions is the fact the extra stuff you get doesn't costs nearly as much to make as they charge for it. I understand it's a Collector's Edition, but at least give me something that is worth that extra costs.

This doesn't go for all games, just most.

I've gotten preorder bonuses for certain games and whatnot, but I don't think I've ever gotten a collector's edition...

Wait, scartch that.  I got the bonus edition of The Last story, the one that game with the neat case, art book and sample music disc.  I like it, it's really cool for the case alone.  I also got the special edition Wimmotion+ Wiimote with Skyward Sword, not sure if that counts.

I only get the special edition if it comes with neat extras, like artbooks or whatnot.

Ubisoft has said that the current gen versions for PS3 and 360 won't be trimmed down compared to next gen and PC versions. This makes me worried because if they didn't have to trim it down for PS3 and 360 then how could they possibly be taking advantage of the extra hardware power of next gen and PC ?

I don't see how PS3 could handle that amount of detail on such a large scale, but maybe it can. I mean The Last of Us looked better than many of these next generation games announced.:P

Yeah but The Last of Us was a PS3 exclusive. Exclusives often times look better than multiplatform games because the development teams can focus on just one system versus 3 or more. An example was Crysis to Crysis 2. Crysis, which at the time was a PC exclusive, looked better than Crysis 2 when Crysis 2 was first launched. It wasn't until Crytek added high resolution textures and DirectX 11 features to the PC version of Crysis 2 that it looked better than Crysis.

I know, and Watch Dogs doesn't look close to the level to The Last of Us or Halo 4, it actually looks a bit like AC3 in graphics.

I say the PC footage on youtube and I'll be honest, it doesn't look as impressive as it was made out to be. I've seen way better from computers and the new consoles. All of this though is actually good news for me since I won't be moving up anytime soon.:P

I was going to guess Bioshock 2.  For some reason when I am talking to people who regret buying a collectors edition it turns out to be Bioshock 2 very often.

Well they did buy the IP for halos 5-9 already... Maybe we can buy the tenth one so they can't screw it up any further! :o

I don't see it getting fixed any time soon. 343 wanted to goo for the CoD approach and I'm sure they're going to stick with it. I don't really care anymore though, seeing as I'm going to PS4 next gen.

It is not! :x

Playing it today I could see where you're coming from, but don't you remember all the buzz it caused when it first came out? It was revolutionary at the time and it's the sole reason for microsoft's success in the gaming industry (probably not such a good thing now that we've seen he xbone). People bought xboxes for that game alone!

Actually, Halo has aged miraculously well, I had no issues with the aging.

The biggest issue was copy and pasting the levels. I understand they were on a deadline but that was way too over the top. The level which could have easily been the best in the game was held back because the same room was used... I'd say four times in a row. It can get confusing when navigating.

The story, while decent, never hit it's full potential. I feel like it could have been far deeper and Master Chief could have used a little more character. And one big issue I had was the voice-acting. The pilot's voice-acting was hideous, but hey, Master Chief sounded epic so that made up for it.:P

And the positives definitely do outweigh the negatives. The gorgeous graphics are stunning even today and the revolutionary gameplay feels as if the controller was made for the game. And the competitive gameplay man.., Some of the best at the time.

I love Halo, but like many other games I love, it was shaped as having no problems whatsoever, which isn't true. I do think it was revolutionary though.

Please don't be angry Kman.:|

The levels weren't copy and pasted. Did you even pay attention to the plot? You had to revisit some old areas. :x

 

And why do you keep talking about the voice acting? It's not that bad. :?

The voice-acting mainly happens with the pilot and Cortana. Now Cortana was a good character, but the voice-actress drops the volume of some words too low when the music was building, which caused the result of me having to go back and watch the cutscene to see what she said. It's not a big problem, and part of it could be caused by my television and the way it's either really loud or quiet.

By recycling rooms I mean like the snow level. I know you revisit it later on, that's fine, but your first time through you walk through four rooms which are nearly identical to each other, I think just mirrored.

Don't worry though, I still love the game and understand why it's revolutionary.

I'd say Infamous, Fallout, Dragon Age: They're all overrated, but I still like them... Well more like I kind of like Fallout 3. That game has not aged well.:P

I could name a ton of underrated games too. Dino Crysis, Genji, Ico, Shadow of the Colossus (You knew that was coming), Resident Evil 1 (Which is better than two), Beyond Good and Evil, Okami, Silent Hill 2, definitely Onimusha, Infamous 2, BioShock 2, Shadow of Destiny, Drakan, Blood Will Tell, Ghost Recon, Clock Tower, I'd maybe even say Freedom Fighters was underrated.

Also, MGS3 is overrated.:|

My CE of Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway came with a statue of Matt Baker who was the main character you play as. My CE of Prey also came with a statue of the main character Tommy if I'm not mistaken.

Rarely for me. Only when I'm more hype than shit. The last CE I got was Skyward Sword. I disliked that game...

I guess that's the big problem with collectors editions: you usually have to preorder the game to get them. If the game sucks then you feel like you wasted money but if you wait for a demo or to hear about the game after launch you can't always buy the CE for it.
