[QUOTE="Mogzsnet"]A lot of people complain about the price of video games, but personally I don't have a problem shelling out money for a quality game. Take Skyrim for example; Bethesda Game Studios spent 5 YEARS building Skyrim from the ground up. Skyrim is meticulously detailed, well voice acted, and clearly a labour of love. Irrational Games delayed Bioshock: Infinite twice because they didn't feel it was ready. Ken Levine the Creative Director for BIoshock said "when we ask people to pony up a lot of money for this game, we have to feel confident that were giving them something that they deserve". That's exactly why Irrational Games got my $60. I'll gladly pay $60 to a Developer for a quality game that is a polished product. In short, make a good game and people will buy it.capaho

I agree that truly great games that take years to develop are worth the price.  The problem is that there are too many mediocre to bad games that are released at the same price that are not worth the money in terms of story development, gameplay or playing time and that diminishes the value of all games from the consumer's perspective.

I couldn't agree more

[QUOTE="locus-solus"]i want to know why people are willing to pay 60$ per game, and why you think its worth it or not. give examples of your experiences good or bad or just give a opinion if you wait for the price to drop like i do. there are a few games that i bought that would had been worth 60$ they are Red Dead Redemption Game of the Year Edition spent about 100 hr on it Demon's Souls/Dark Souls spent about 200 hr apiece on each, and Okami HD spent about 80 hr so far. i'm thinking about buying GTA V and Dark Souls ii brand new it would be the first time i didn't wait for the price to drop

Wow dude, wow. First off, I'm Canadian and am utterly shocked at those prices. I have never seen prices even remotely close to what your local retailer charges. I have friends in the States and they pay almost the exact same prices I pay where I live in Canada. Perhaps start supporting a REAL video game store; i.e. Gamestop.

[QUOTE="darkaura5"]Hi everybody! (Sorry for my bad english) After a long time I finished Final Fantasy 8, I decided to replay this game.. but one thing I'm afraid is that I don't want to "loose" my good memories when I played this game at the first time... Everytime I listen to a soundtrack or music in FF8, I miss the past. It looks like that period of time and FF8 go together, and create my good memories. Therefore, if I replay, I'm afraid the memories will fade and after that I just remember FF8 by the second time playing, not the first time. I wonder if you guys have this feelings like me :) So What's your opinion about this... should I replay the game? :) Have a nice day!.

I say for got it man. I'm big on replaying games that I've beaten, even years down the road. I've even gone back and played games via an emulator from the 90s. I'll admit that at first it's hard to wrap your head around the graphics (especially if the were "cutting edge" at the time" or perhaps aspects of the game, but after a time all that initial joy will come right back :)

Meh, I'm still on the fence about this game. I've played every Elder Scrolls game from Arena to Skyrim (including Battlespire and Redguard), and I love the series. I'm just not certain that TES can make the jump to MMORPG. First and foremost Bethesda Game Studios isn't even making it, so right there you know the creative minds behind the series aren't going to be working on TES:O. Who knows, maybe it'll be good, but I don't have high hopes for it.

So, as probably most of you have, I have run out of decent games to play Skugarr
Nope, that has never been an issue for me...never.

Out of the list Half-life 2. Overall, Bioshock.

I have played multiple games this kid wants to play and they've all been shitty games, literally every time.  I always mention something actually good and he just dismisses it, because he only wants to play what he wants to play.  Today I mentioned a co-op survival horror game called "cry of fear" free on steam right now.  His response is this. 

 

"

I get so absorbed in RPGs that I tend to not spend a lot of time trying new stuff.
(5:59:46 PM) Captain N Kevin: And I'll admit I'm quick to dismiss a game if I see a floating gun and crosshairs. 
(6:00:03 PM) Captain N Kevin: I'm pretty bad at them, tbh.
(6:00:21 PM) Captain N Kevin: I'd still like to get that Walking Dead one though. Kind of a letdown that it wasn't multi co-op.

 

"

So trying new things makes no sense in his opinion.  Dismisses games with a floating gun and a crosshair... need I say more here.  That walking dead game was **** awful and everyone said it was on here as well.  I just don't get idiots like this.  Does anyone else run into these morons on the reg.  It really makes me rethink friendship when someone just wants to live in their own world of shit and never open their eyes.

At the end of the day I don't take issue with anyone having preferences or a lack there of. As a PC gamer I constantly hear people sputtering nonsense about PC gaming dying, yet frankly I could care less. As long as I'm happy playing the games I like, on the platform I like, then do I really have any right to judge a person on what they enjoy? Some things just don't appeal to people. Take me for instance, I have zero interest in racing games. I'm aware they exist, I know people love them, I see the great ratings they get, however I still will not play them. Does that mean I'm closed minded? Perhaps. Does that mean I know what I like? Absolutely.
