HeyUGuys Gaming Editor in Chief tries to decipher why he’s suddenly burnt out of all his consoles.
Excellent article. Very well written, interesting, witty and balanced. I'm also ready for next gen, but I don't know if I'm ready to completely let go of this gen yet. There are still games like, The Last of Us, Beyond Two Souls, Dark Souls 2, and GTA V, to name a few. You also have all the cross-gen games, (Watch dogs, AC IV, BF4, MGS V etc). Let's be honest, there's still a lot of mileage to be had from current gen gaming, especially when you consider your gaming hall of shame, aka all the unfinished 'great' games that are sitting on the shelf. With all that said though Next-Gen is day 1 for me. Killzone Shadowfall, Infamous Second Son, Drive Club, BF4, WatchDogs, and Destiny. Bring on Next Gen :)
Dont forget BLACKLIST! One of my most anticipated titles right now, in spite of the looming presence of next-gen awesomeness. Needs me some Spies vs Mercs 4v4 action.... *drool* That being the case, I'm also ready for the next-gen. This generation has begun to wear on me. I'm ready for the next big push towards higher quality... as beautiful as BF3 is. Been playing Hitman: Absolution, which is tons of fun... and the volume of the crowds is crazy. And you can kill every single person. Haven't really seen anything else like it. It makes me excited for whats next.
My "gaming hall of shame" is quite embarrassing tbh... +B
Thank you Mike, much appreciated! I still think there is a good amount of life left in the current gen. If people have seen what next-gen has to offer and choose to stay with their current consoles for the future then they will still have plenty of games to enjoy, which is fantastic. It's just for me, I KNOW I'm going next-gen as soon as it's available, so the cross gen games like Watch Dogs, Black Flag and such I will purchase on my shiny new system, so it kinda renders my personal consoles kind of obsolete. But again, thanks for checking out the article. We all really appreciate it! Regards, Ross HuGG
PS4 day 1.. Watchdogs Fifa14 Destiny TheCrew MGS5 FF RB6P/HHour/TheDivision
Honestly, I think since we waited this long, Microsoft and Sony could've waited till next year to release. I still have plenty of games to play from this gen and will probably be playing this gen for a long time. Add to that the fact some of the anticipated games for next gen aren't ready for release as of yet. One more year and the launch of both probably would've been the best ever. Infamous 2014 Halo 2014 Killzone Drive Club 2014 The Division 2014 Watch Dogs BF4 Destiny 2014 Knack Forza 5 GT 6 (maybe) Epic.
You can wait. I sure as hell aint.
Actually you are. Atleast 4 more months. sidenote:I guess it hasn't affected me as much as I game alot on the pc side and have a great rig. I forget about that when talking about the consoles.
Why's it have to be this way
moved on long ago still played last of us, gow ascension, halo 4 but they all were last gen looking and running I have not been seriously into console gaming since 2007-2008 everything on them looks so low res and jaggie cannot wait till ps4/xbox1 finally get out so I can see some of the franchises I love not look like crap
well written, i am feeling the same
Good Article. I feel The exact same way and like him, The Last of Us did hit me hard....
I hope to buy a PS4 buy xmas if not I can wait till tax time 1Q 2014 to get a PS4 because there are only going to be a limited amount of exclusives for the PS4 & alot of the other games are multi-plats running on current & next gen systems,there are so many games to buy & play on the PS3 I still haven't caught up,I'm playing about 8 different games & still at the beginning of TLOU.
its okay to put them all on hold for TLOU.... its worth it trust me haha
I won't be fully ready until my 30+ game backlog gets cleaned up. So I will be splitting time between the PS4 & PS3 for awhile.
Speak for yourselves people. However, i am getting a PS4 day 1. It's just ... i love games. I still have yet to play Ni No Kuni, The Last of Us, Dragons Crown, Beyond Two Souls, Lightning Returns, etc. There's still PSP games i have yet to play. The 3rd Birthday, Dissidia 2. (i'm playing Valkyrie Profile Lennenth for the 1st time atm) etc. So, again. Speak for yourselves :)
GREAT article. I loved this gen, despite all the problems. I've gotten into JRPGs like the Tales series, that have given me INCREDIBLE gameplay and story. I've played loads of games that I have blown me away. Next gen, is looking phenomenal already. Final Fantasy XV has blown my mind. Kingdom Hearts III will be the best Kingdom Hearts game yet. I also look forward to 2-3 years from now, when games advance even more. Next gen will be great. Especially from the JRPG. PS4 and Wii U for me :)
This is the worst transition to Next-Gen. I mean you got all these excellent games still coming out and im suppose not buy them? And the PS4 & XBOne is around the corner. Good thing I switched to Allstate.
I kinda agree, too early for next gen. After HD, the next best thing is 4k resolution with 80- 140 fps (frames per second) Why? Because with more, you get extra colors, smoother lightning, etc. Why again? That resolution I just mentioned is the quality you get at the movie theaters ;)
