Has gaming turned into modern T.V?
  • I've been noticing this for a while now.

    As i been browsing threads i've learned that the sequels, triages, segas, ect. of games are coming to an utter destruction. What i mean is that games aren't what they use to be.
    For Example:
    The GTA series was one of the best(and most violent)video game series that ever hit the PS2/Xbox. Since then, More and more of them have been produced and getting better which each passing title: GTA 3, GTA:Vice City, GTA: San Andreas.
    But ever since the Xbox 360 and the PS3 came out, the Rockstar company thought of something that could make the next game so badass that it would top the others altogether. You would think that an awesome game that even sold more copys then Halo 3 would make every customer that bought and cradled the game in there hands because they have been waiting for this moment ever since the last one came out(which was several years ago). Would play the most epic GTA experience of there pathetic life..Well..
    Wrong.
    Even though i loved the game and so did millions of others, i have never met so many people that HATED it. It was like meeting a 45 year old perv. that doesn't like internet porn! lol and i hate to say this but this isn't the only game that made people get so pissed at the company for fucking an awsome game up.


    What im trying to say is that the video games today are being made like our T.V shows today: Over rated and with shitty plots. lmao

    Im not saying that Every game made today is bad and should be thrown away, just that all the most anticipated games that we all been anxiously waiting for, for years apon years, feel like they could have been a lot better.

    Does anyone feel the same way?
  • Nope. Like any art form, at any given point in time about 95% is crap and 5% is gold. I would say that games are seeing more good games now then compared to ten years ago (as it should be) as there is more production, competition, and diversity. There have been games in the last few years that have been great and lived up to expectations of fans and critics alike.

    There's a tendency among humans to romanticize the past, and it seems that video games can't avoid it like anything else.
  • I disagree because with every game that has a lot of fans there are always people who hate the game. for example if you take a game that's insanely popular like say the halo franchise were there are a ton of fans you'll notice that there are many people who also hate the game. To me it just comes down to how many people know about the game because the more people who know about it the more people with opinions about it there is.

    I agree but disagree at the same time.

    I agree because every game does have loving fans and people who just hate the game itself.

    But your wrong because i have friends who loved the first Halo and Halo 2. (As a matter of fact, i met one of my best friends on my bus because of Halo 2.) But anyway, They loved them but as soon as the Halo 3 released and they got it. They hated it really bad because they had been waiting for a long time for it and it felt like it could have been a lot better.

    So your right on the fact that there will be people that will hate the game because they never liked the game in the first place. But there will always be fans.

    But you left out the fact that a lot of people don't like some of the new games that come out today because they thought it could have been better than what it was. Like the my friends with Halo 3.

Howdy, Stranger!
