A look back at the "Game of the Year" Winners (Part 2 of 2) 2000-2014

56d ago ... (this is Part 2 of my blog. Here is a link to Part 1: http://n4g.com/blogs/details/536978) 2000 Game of the Year: Deus Ex on PC and Mac 2000 was another year where many publications declared many different winners. But a slim majority sided with Deus Ex and I think it was a fine choice. After all, We'd never seen such an open ended FPS/RPG hybrid that allowed for such customization....

Gamers and Backward Compatibility: A Lack of Reasoning

63d ago ... Ok, so before I even begin this I need to take some time to get something out. I probably will hardly ever use the ps4’s ability to play ps2 games. Unlike most, I have a pretty big library of ps2 games and I cannot see myself buying over any of those games just to play in HD with trophy support. I was looking forward to being able to pop my currently owned discs into my ps4 and have the HD vers...

Has Sony Hired EA To Market Features Or Something?

66d ago ... Hey how's it going everyone? Been awhile since I posted a blog and my foray back into it is to call Sony out on their B.S. along with all the blind, moronic people fainting at what ISN'T backwards compatibility. What the hell is wrong with all of you? This isn't backwards compatibility, it's an extension of the "sell you back games you already own" mentality that was born from remasters, PSN...

The System That Changed Everything

118d ago ... I'm sorry, I'm going back in time here, but I feel like we should be sharing great video game memories together and what we had. The topic here I'm going to blab about is going to be taking us back in the old days. Now I'm sure we all had our own good old memories with a great epic game. Either if you played it at your friend's/relative's house for endless hours or just by yourself. On this blo...

Halo 3: Game of a Generation

133d ago ... Let me start by saying that Halo 3 wasn't the best game of the 7th generation. In fact, it wasn't even my favorite game of that generation. But Halo 3 was a game that shaped the generation that grew up with it like no other, while also providing an unwavering vision into the near future of video games before we even dreamed of it. It's hard to believe that Halo 3 came out a whopping 8 years...

No Future for Japanese AAA based on PS4 Sales in Japan, PS4 needs to go Mobile

137d ago ... There won't be any AAA Japanese PS4 Exclusive games, this generation. That's Bad, and I hope I'm totally wrong about this. Did I say there won't be any AAA Japanese PS4 Exclusive games in the future. Yes I did. 1 year old PS2, SONY sold 3 million PS2 Console 1 year old PS4, SONY sold 1 million Console. http://www.geek.com/games/playstation-2-hits-us-today-564850/ http://www.dualshockers.c...

PS4 sales in Japan, determines the future of AAA JPRGs, Japanese AAA games

145d ago ... Bad news, for Japanese AAA games future . When PS2 almost 3 years old, it sold 12.5 million in Japan. When PS4 almost 2 years old, it sold less than 2 million in Japan. That's Bad. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/2664337.stm Will there be AAA Japenese games after FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE? Will FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE be AAA game? PS4 sales in Japan, determines the future of AAA JPR...

Metal Gear Solid V: Why I Do Not Regret Spending $130 on the Experience

152d ago ... So The Phantom Pain is out (have you heard?) and has done exceptionally well with most reviewing outlets. Not that I enjoy consulting Metacritic, but there is not one single mixed or negative review for the game. Needless to say, the game is incredible. It is no secret that I am a huge Metal Gear Solid fan with a pretty long rap sheet of things I have done. I managed to earn the Big Boss/Fox...

So much, and so little...

224d ago ... I have begun to notice that I have a rapidly expanding problem, and I really don't know what to do about it. I have too many games. I collect games from various platforms, not just current generation and last generation titles. I have games from the Atari 2600, NES, SNES, Genesis, TurboGrafx 16, Neo Geo, Sega Master System, Sega Saturn, Dreamcast, N64, Gamecube, PS1, PS2, PS3, PS4, Xbox,...

Joe Montana Football looms

241d ago ... *UPDATE* Joe Montana Football will be shown part of the Unreal 4 presser. Also you can sign up for early access on www.Joemontana.com Let's get this out of the way now. I'm a fanboy. A NFL 2k5 fanboy. I still play it to this day with updated rosters found with simple google searches. You copy that save file and paste it to your 360, PS3, XboxOG, and PS2 to keep it going. Now, I'm n...

Re-innovative games.

327d ago ... Today I would like to present to you some of the games that changed the way we play right now. Games that did not invent a certain mechanic but rather improved upon it and was an inspiration to most games we play now ( hence the word re-innovative) Regenerating Health: Halo 2 (2004, Xbox) Some people credit the original “Halo" for introducing the generating health to the video game world...

Everything YOU need to know about | Dragon Ball Xenoverse

350d ago ... There was a time, believe it or not, where Dragon Ball games weren't all annually released mediocrity. Dating back to the PS2 era, there was tons of fun to be had with Spike’s Dragon Ball Tenkaichi 3 and Dimps’ Budokai series. Somehow, like krillin, the source material refuses to die with Namco releasing new iterations every year. Other anime franchises have found a comfortable playstyle like...

Nintendoom: Part 1: Re-shaping the console

352d ago ... It's a new year, and time for a new blog, so let’s get right into it. Nintendoom. “Is this the end of Nintendo”, “Is this the end of Handhelds”, we've heard all this before, but looking at the state of the Wii U, and it's understandable why this topic comes up. The Wii U is currently performing worse than the GameCube which is considered a failure sales-wise amongst the gaming community, esp...

The Here and Playstation Now

384d ago ... If including everything available for both the Playstation 2 and 3 at launch, they’d be considered some of the consoles with the most robust libraries during their respective releases. This consideration isn’t due to an explosion of newly-released titles but rather in their focus on providing 100% backwards compatibility at the time. This was a consistent feature for Sony until PS2 compatibil...

Is the only option left for Nintendo is to be different?

402d ago ... Nintendo, while still being a powerhouse when it comes to software and the dedicated portable market, seems to have pigeon-holed themselves into a corner when it comes to console gaming. The downward spiral dated back to the N64 days and Sony's smash entry the first Playstation. It truly was revolutionary at the time. A time when Nintendo had strained relationships with third party publishers,...

My top 11 PS2 games.

403d ago ... Playstation 2 is one of those consoles that was just a juggernaut of its own even though the Gamecube and the original Xbox had slightly better graphics however nothing rivaled it in terms of sheer amount of games and variety it had and it came with a built in DVD player so that was cool for the time. With the great amount of time I had with it I wanted to show my top 11 for my favorite console...

PS4 doomed to have only few games? (1 year on)

427d ago ... [Update: This post had a mistake which said PS4 had about 40 disk based games after 1 year, but it had 77. It also said PS2 had about 75 disk based games but it had more than 136] 1 year ago I posted this article: http://n4g.com/user/blogpost/ranma1/524461 I feel so far its proven to be accurate. At the time I wrote the piece, the original PlaySta...

Metal Gear Online, Episode 3: A New Hope

436d ago ... What a topical, if irrelevant, title :) Metal Gear Solid, for the most part, has always been about the singleplayer experience. Not until Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, did fans of the series see an introduction of a multiplayer element, and I’d say that it was still just an afterthought when compared to the main game. I had a friend that played the original Metal Gear Online when it came...

Non-Gamers Do Not Understand Sometimes

444d ago ... To all those people who said that ‘gamers’ are wasting their time with comparing graphics or ‘Who has the better console’ contest, do not really understand us. We are human; we tend to not admit defeat because the console we bought with our OWN money will always be the console we know that is the best choice for us. A slight hint of defeat with either one of those console can cause tons of comp...

2014 is the year of disappointment in gaming...

463d ago ... It started with so much promise... New consoles, new generation, new year. It was all looking up 11 months ago. We were about to see what these new bad boys could do. Just imagining the amazing graphical fidelity and new styles of gameplay was enough to make many of us open our pocketbooks to be a part of 8th generation of gaming. And lets not forget our old consoles were likewise enterin...
