It depends on how much you want to get from the story. It's one of those plotlines that benefits from seeing it throug twice, but if you're not interested in that, there's no need to buy it. I bought it and don't regret it for one moment, but I was also very into the story and world of the game. It wasn't just fifteen hours and done for me.

I've always been with Sony because their consoles have always been better. After Sony's reveal a couple of months ago, there is absolutely nothing that Microsoft could do to change my mind. I hope it has online connectivity to play games aswell as a no used games policy just to laugh my ass off.

I would love to hear a cogent argument about how any single company's consoles have "always been better."

Metro will be an interesting case. In the end, what we see is what the market will bear. We probably won't like it, but we will end up ponying up for the things we really want, and that will naturally vary between each person. I lookay mass effect 3 as an e ample, as its seen a ton of single player paid DLC. I haven't paid f any of it and wotpnt until I does on sale, but its frustrating that there's another half of a mass effect game locked ino $10-15 chunks. On the other hand, I paid for the BioShock season pass, because I believe in the prospective quality of that content, but I also believe in a reasonable value of another, again, rouly half are of content, but at a more reasonable rate of $20 for all of it.

I'm not normally an early adopter, but this gen has dragged on so long. My body is ready.JamDev
This generation is certainly showing its age as pc versions of muliplatform games keep on looking better and better, but I still wonder what the next gem has to offer beyond shinier visuals. As Nintendo is finding out with the WiiU, you have to really sell someone on a reason to upgrade.

if ever.

I was planning on skipping next gen, and still might, but that Deep Down trailer has me in the wait and see mindset.

My thoughts are that I have too many odler games I want to play.  I have a decent backlog (consisting msotly of RPGs so it'll take me forever to get through) and there are bunches of older games for many systems I want to play. Meanwhile, I have seen evry little that excites me about next gen.  Evil Within or whatever it's called (new Mikami game) looks like it might be good, but it could just turn into an action fest.  Meanwhile, my favorite company, Nintendo, has awful support for WiiU, so it looks like it'll jsut be another console to have soley for the exclusives.  If I ever ended up buying a enxt gen console, it'd probably be the PS4.

Although I will be getting a 3DS soon, not sure if that counts.

I'm in a similar situation. I'll be getting the pop tart 3DS XL soon, and I've got a ton of old games I need to play still, or want to play again, or still haven't even bought yet. I could see holding off of a next gen home console until 2015/2016 easy, at which point I'd probably just rather have a new computer anyway.

The run of FF VI-X is pretty unimpeachable, but those games are also older, and you'll need to look past the limitations of hardware and evolution of game design.  If someone wanted to learn about FF I'd probably go with FFX because it's user-friendly and not quite as dated as the others. If you like the story of Crisis Core, however, VII might be a good one if you can overlook the blocky polygons and occasionally off translation, since it's set in the same world and references some of the characters from Crisis Core.

IX is a nice, straightforward story, and feels more like a fairy tale for all ages. It has its own homey charm and is easy to like. If you can deal with the graphical hit, I'd say it's roughly as good a place to start as X.

I'd throw in Bulletstorm, too. Big, stupid fun.

There's lots of DICE/Battlefront talk, and it's certainly enoug to whet my appetite, but I would also love to see BioWare back in that universe, combining their experience with KOTOR and Mass Effect.

EA's an easy punching bag because they're engaged in most of the practices we dislike from this generation, but they generally put the resources behind the games that demand it, and I think Star Wars is in good hands with EA. It'll just cost a bit more to enjoy all of what is released.

So much ginned-up rage over something that was never even confirmed.

Just finished the Saboteur tonight, people really need to play this game, so damn good. I deserves at least 8.5's if not 9's and above. It's too bad it got shit on by critics and published by EA otherwise they could have made a great sequel. But Pandemic is no more so it'l never happen.

The Saboteur really is a great game and a heck of a swan song for Pandemic to go out on. It really is too bad they were shuttered. Still the only Xbox 360 game I got every single achievement in.
