Played and beat all these games on the ps3, and I was starting to get excited about the prospect of playing them again, but I just beat God of War 3 on ps4 ,which i beat on the ps3. I now realise I'm living in the past. The last games I've beat have all been last gen, lol Halo collection and GOW remastered. I bought the Order 1866 and its ok, but I probably won't finish it. I thought maybe I was getting too old to play games or something, but after beating GOw in one night I realise that I still want to play good games, but there seems to be a lack of current gen games. Maybe last gen spoiled us games so good that all they can do is rerelease them lol

Maybe I'm just getting old and a bit jaded but this gen of consoles actually gaming in general has been underwhelming. I think we all lose when there just aren't any compelling games out. People spend all their time arguing about which console is better instead of playing great games. I own both because I love gaming but both have been a let downs and its hard to admit I've so far wasted 600 or so dollars for a fancy cable/Netflix box and a odd shaped paper weight. This is just one mans lament, but hopefully we will get some quality soon as I want to be awed and entertained and have my mind taken away from issues of importance and placed on whether or not I missed something in the area I just cleared and the fear I may not be able to go back because I beat the boss and unlocked the next part

@yukushi: So what you want is a shot for shot recreation of every comic book to movie? So you have hated every Batman movie right? Every X men movie, the avengers, ironman etc.. because none of these films are "comic accurate". If you do like one of these films you are a hypocrite whose only real concern is race. Mythology is just that myth, it must really upset you every time you see a white representation of Jesus or Moses since all representations of myths must be racially accurate?

This was a day brightener. I loved both games, actually got the European version of 2 for the dreamcast from eb games back in day as it had English subtitles. Shenmue was a different kind of game. It was the first fully realized 3D world for a console and the time and care spent building this world is seen when you play it as it was simply stunning. Nowadays these worlds are a dime a dozen but most these worlds don't feel as alive as shenmues. After all this time I would have taken a web comic or something to finish the story,but to be getting a game is fantastic. It's about time !!!

I enjoyed Heavy Rain 100% story driven and let's not forget some action games also rely QTEs like God of War which I also thought was fantastic. Games like Mariokart don't have stories per se but are fun none the less. I enjoy games in general Magic the gathering games like Settlers of Catan are mostly about having fun. I'll never hate on Tetris because it lacks a deep story. It is one of the best games ever made and yet I enjoy a game like heavy rain which is only story. I think that's what makes gaming so great, there is something in it that can appeal to everyone and at the end of the day what people find fun varies greatly.

That's a great point, its like the big franchises subsidize the smaller games on any given platform. Games like Dark Souls don't push console sells, Call of duty does, thus to be able to play these more niche games something with more mass appeal has to push sells and generate enough profit for most companies to want to make games in the first place. The movie industry works much the same , without a movie like Twilight there can't be funding for movies like Birdman.

@Dannystaples14@Pr0ving4Gr0undz@spartanx169x@Adam802: Hmm lets see laws maybe ??? Would the country be a better place without them, well most people are of an opinion that it would be not be thus, we submit ourselves to the rule of law. Democracy allows us in this country to voice our opinion in public and try and persuade others to our causes so yea I think people tend to have an idea of the concept of better. I am of an opinion that cucumbers taste better pickled its not an objective truth but it is an opinion that some share and even if they didn't you can't dismiss someone's opinion based on the fact its an opinion. "better is an opinion" is an opinion thank you for sharing that with all of us.

@spartanx169x@Adam802: You do realize that's the point of a forum is to be subjective, his problem is that he did not provide any premises to support his claim.
