I don't want to play as The Avengers, I want to play as Thanos. The Thanos from Infinity War to be precise, not how they ruined his character in Endgame.

Let me play as Thanos from Infinity War on a quest to make everything perfectly balanced as all things should be and I might buy the game. Otherwise, I probably won't buy it.

@PAL360: @storm_of_swords:

The NES-PS2 era is way better than the PS3/360//Wii//Xone/Switch era.

I think alot of people are judging retro games based on today's standards.

007(N64) is considered a classic but will get killed if reviewed today.

I also think that a lot of people that are judging retro games negatively are getting a degraded experience with the games because of the way that they are experiencing the games which is often through emulation on a lcd screen.

I've experienced this firsthand a few years back when I foolishly sold all of my retro consoles because I thought that I could just play the games through emulation now. After that, I started thinking that most retro games did not hold up anymore, but I was wrong. The problem wasn't that they didn't hold up, the problem was that I was not playing them the way that they were designed to be played anymore. Once I started playing them on original hardware again, I was amazed at how much better they felt to play again and it reignited my love for retro games. Then I bought a CRT TV to play my retro consoles on the display that they were designed for and that was another huge game changer that made the games even better.

I don't think most people realize how degraded of an experience they are getting with retro games if they are playing them with anything less than the orginal hardware on a CRT TV like they were designed for. From input lag that the games were not designed for making the games less responsive, to the games feeling different when playing on a controller that is different than the one that the games were designed around, to emulation always being at least a little off especially with sound, to save states changing how tension and reward operates in the game, to the games no longer looking the way that the artists intended for them to look when they were designed with CRT screens in mind, etc.

It kind of frustrates me when I hear people say that retro games don't hold up and I know that they are making these judgements based upon degraded experiences through emulation on a lcd screen and are therefore not getting to experience the games properly in their best state. I wish that I could just show these people how great these games still are when you play them the way that they were designed to be played.

@PSP107: Late 80s, not sure the exact year. My favourite generation is still the 16bit gen, but i'm aware that nostalgia factor has alot to do with it.

There was never as much quality and diversity available as there's now. People just have to stop pretending that big AAA companies are all we have available.

There are some people that are very influenced by nostalgia but then there are also many people that are influenced by recency bias. Based upon posts that I've seen from you, you seem to be much more influenced by recency bias than you are nostalgia.

I've seen you make posts saying that modern games are objectively better than retro games and that's something that I strongly disagree with. Sure, modern games have some advantages over retro games, but retro games also have many advantages over modern games and I don't think that you give retro games enough credit. Have you actually spent much time replaying retro games and if so how are you playing them?

If we are going by generation standards, than MS still takes the cake for the Xbox One launch. Sony saved us all from those crappy practices MS was trying to implement.

Do people really believe that Sony was not ready to do the exact same thing until they saw the backlash that Microsoft received for it?

A few months prior to E3, Sony patented technology to block the use of used games on a console, so they were obviously thinking about doing the exact same thing. Microsoft's biggest mistake was being stupid enough to be the first one to announce it. I think that after Sony saw the huge backlash that Microsoft received from the announcement, they made a last minute decision to drop it from the PS4 and use the backlash to their advantage to paint themselves as the good guys which was a very smart move on their part but they aren't innocent.

None of the PS4's exclusives appeal to me anymore and I would rather play it's multiplats on Xbox One.

I don't like movie-games or JRPGs so that instantly makes most PS4 exclusives unappealing to me.

I had hoped to enjoy Bloodborne, but when I played it, I was disappointed with it and I too prefer the Souls games over it.

The Shadow of the Colossus remake is good, but I prefer to play the PS2 version because it has a better atmosphere.

In the past, I had enjoyed Rocket League and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy on PS4, but those games have since gone multiplat so I now play them on Xbox One instead.

As of right now, I see absolutely no value in the PS4's library for my tastes which is why I sold my PS4 a few months ago.

I would not even waste my time playing it even if it was given to me for free. I have no interest in Kojima's weird movie-games.

Naw bro. I am going to continue to whine about how much I hate the Wii U and Switch. Worst Nintendo systems ever.

No games and I will never buy either of them because they have nothing I like.

I can’t understand why Nintendo fanboys like Nintendo games when they are just ports/updates of old games every 5 years. It seems silly to get excited for it.

I don’t think Nintendo fans actually like Nintendo’s games. They just buy them to buy them.

The real AJ Styles is a big fan of Nintendo.

Everybody take your bets on what percentage of the reveal will be actual gameplay. I say no more than 10% of it is actual gameplay.

What’s worse is those that refuse to buy the console and then bitch about how the games aren’t the kind of games they like.

That's not worse. If a console doesn't have the types of games that you want then it doesn't make any sense to own a console that doesn't have games that you want to play.

The thing that is really bad is when a console does have games that the person wants to play, but instead of buying the console to play the games that they want and be happy, they instead just bitch about it not being available on the console that they chose to purchase. Developers have every right to make their games exclusive to whatever platform that they want and you are not entitled to have another platform's exclusives just because you chose to buy a different platform. If you really want to play a game then simply buy the system that it is available on and enjoy yourself instead of bitching about it.
