*Rockstar games are all variations on a single theme, but GTA V make a good argument against GTA being the classic coke of the industry. Its core open world concept has already been outdone several times by more creative and original series. They need to focus on a new Western or better yet develop a new IP.

*I like cinematic games, I like games with good mechanics. I like games that can do either or both well. Uncharted has rote gameplay, unengaging cinematics and the main character has the personality of a date rapist. I still don't understand the appeal of that series.

*the industry needs a new business model if it doesn't want the arse to fall out from under it.

*video games aren't purely entertainment, but the gaming media and the gaming community need to reevaluate how they/we talk about games if they/we want videos to be taken seriously as an artform.

LoL and other's like it are shite.

Final Fantasy is abhorrent.

Mario and Nintendo games in general are recycled crap, CoD gets stick for this, and yet Nintendo get's a free pass for doing it for MUCH longer?

MMO's are cash factories, focussed only on getting players hooked to spend more and more money on them.

Graphics are nice to have but you forget about how pretty it is in 10 minutes.

Price ranges made Fifa UT better.

Fallout is better than Elder Scrolls.

Telltale Games is the best and most consistently good content producing developer out there.

Battlefield 3 was the best Battlefield game.

Uncharted/The Last of Us is fun but in the CoD way, as an interactive movie (Which I like), not as a game. They are both also overrated, Uncharted way more then The Last of Us.

Games that's sole purpose is to be hard and unforgiving are the opposite of fun, like Dark Souls.

Playstation and Xbox are both as good and as bad as each other, neither is better or worse than the other.

PC Gaming is really overrated.

Half Life 3 will never come out.

Left 4 Dead is terrible and floaty.

Halo is the greatest FPS shooter series.

Halo has the best music ever in games.

(Not fully unpopular in the Fallout community) New Vegas is better than Fallout 3 in every way.

Obsidian make better RPG's than Bethesda.

Bioware hasn't made an excellent game since Dragon Age Origins.

Scattershot attempt at making people angry. ;) Some of those I agree with but not fully, I played them up a bit. Others I do actually believe.

Dark Souls isn't unforgiving. There is a clear difference between games that are artificially difficult (like a lot of SNES titles) and challenge.

Good post all in all, but YES to these in particular.

Although actually, you mentioned graphics and that leads me to...

People always understate the importance of graphics. They always act like they're in the minority when they say "I don't care about graphics, I just care about gameplay" thinking that they're some kind of a special snowflake when, actually, I've never actually seen anybody say otherwise. I don't recall ever saying "yeah, this game was shit but I played through it because it looked great!".
However, this isn't to say that graphics can't add a lot to a game. Games are an immersive form of entertainment, and graphics that look bad can take away from the experience. Yeah, I think we can all agree that art design matters a lot more than sheer horse power/lighting/shadows/textures and what not, but lets not go around pretending that those things aren't worth a damn.

I'm not trying to sound like a Nintendo wanker, but I don't understand the hate for them. They pretty much saved Video Games, and this is coming from someone who prefers the Playstation in every way. Maybe I'm just appreciating the fact that they are the reason the Playstation exists.

As I've said before though despite what I said above, I only would bother with Pikmin or Zelda when it comes to Nintendo. At least the newer games anyways.

"Proper gamers" who buy consoles are mugs and don't know what they're missing. You're paying for hilariously outdated hardware. Actually, you're paying more than you would for modern hardware. Shit doesn't even run in 1080p most of the time. It's 2015 for fuck sake, 1080p went mainstream a hell of a long time ago. 4k is just around the corner and M$ and Pony are still fucking with 720p/900p at 30fps. Cowboys.

FPS's have absolutely no place on a console. Calling a game the greatest console FPS of all time is like calling the clap the greatest STD of all time. It's pretty fucking awful but things could be worse, I guess.

There's maybe 2 or 3 genuinely good, relatively large, developers around nowadays. The rest are bleeding consumers dry with sequel after sequel of shit. There's fuck all creativity from the big devs now, and it's our fault for letting it happen.

Nintendo deserve to go under, and not just for their shitty business descisions. Awful, awful company.

Sonic is superior to Mario.

Valve have gone from 'the peoples developers' to just another money hungry set of c*** and that's a massive shame given their history.

Pyro is definitely not an alien.

Needs moar Halo.

Oh wait, GB already covered that.

But nah, I guess not. I think I only included that in the sense that it's seemingly held on a pedestal far above and beyond consoles and the people who think that way never shut up about it. Yes, the majority of games are better on PC (in terms of how great they run/look, controls, mod support) but consoles aren't quite as awful as some seem to think they are.

I have both an Xbone and a fairly powerful PC...

Still find myself playing Witcher 3 on the Xbox, it's just easier, I can lie down relax and just kill monsters. I don't have to worry about what is going on with my FPS, whether to turn down my settings, I also find I notice the graphical inperfections more on PC cause of how focussed on visuals it's about. So I notice poor AA or old textures, where on my console I barley pay attention to textures and whether I'm experiencing and FPS drop. It just feels more natural to me on a console, more about the game than whether I can run it and how good it looks.

Still love my PC though, love to stick on ARMA 3 and explore the gorgeous landscape and tactical combat. Playing DayZ back in the day, playing Total War into the early hours of the morning. I now play all of the Telltale games on PC because of the reduced load times, same with most single player game excluding expansive RPG's like The Witcher. PC gaming is truly great. But it isn't what you'd expect it to be when you read PC Master Race, where they make it out to be MILES ahead over consoles. Sure, maybe that textures is more clean, but I don't really give a shit. The amount of time's I've had to Google why something isn't working and scour through forum threads and what not (mod's not working, crashes, bugs, games that won't start up, games with connection problems in multi player etc...) feels like once every week on PC whereas on console it is rarely.

I enjoy both, but I can't stand the elitism from either side. Both have positives and negatives.

I take back what I said about Nintendo after reading an article about them and how annoying their fans can be, but I still don't believe they should just quit though. They've been around since 1985, they've been through this before.

Nintendo threaten people who upload themselves playing their games (even people giving them positive reviews, free advertising and whatever else), before either taking the videos down or demanding a huge share of any money generated from the upload. Given people do youtube for a living, that's kinda shitty on their part. They're a miserable company. All that colourful bubbly charm is a lie.

Fifa does get better every year
That will be an unpopular opinion. Over the last three installments I think EA have taken more and more of the fun out of playing FIFA with their quest for supposed realism.

Elder Scrolls and Fallout are pants.

Gears is better than Halo.

Someone should confiscate your computer to stop you typing profanities like that.:lac:

Really depends on who you're playing, but when it normally tends to be screaming 8 year olds who rage at everything possible then I agree with you.

SimCity isn't actually that bad. In fact, I quite enjoy it.
