i prefer the PS 1 graphic more than PS3-4

at least back in the day gameplay were more challenging.

R.I.P Console Hardcore Gaming i'll miss you


nowadays all these lazy devs are focusing to the casual.

You must not have a VITA lol. Plenty of hardcore games there.

You should really try the Dark Souls and Demon's Souls games, frustratingly hard yet fun somehow.
ape007  +   288d ago
yes the overall core game design and gameplay were a bit better in the old days but gaming is still awesome, u have modern classics like TLOU and GTA V, u have great online mp games like destiny and Titanfall, great indie games like shovel knight

graphics have nothing to do with gameplay and their are plenty of beautiful games that are challenging. Stop being over-dramatic and go play some more games.
OtakuDJK1NG  +   288d ago
"graphics have nothing to do with gameplay"

so graphics doesn't effect the performance of gameplay.

TLOU Grounded difficulty is definitely targeting casuals /s

You obviously have never played TLOU on higher difficulties, I dont know why I even bothered replying to you.
Fez  +   288d ago
TLOU on Survival isn't that difficult. Most encounters you have the upper hand by the enemy being unaware of your location. The AI is pretty good but the enemies' fields of view is very narrow and can be exploited. Add to that the numerous checkpoints throughout the game and it isn't very difficult.

Older games often added difficulty in the worst possible ways - bad checkpoint system or none at all, sometimes coupled with bad controls, and usually absolutely no indication of where to go or what to do.

Nowadays, I prefer the easier and more fun modern games to the frustration I've found in older games. Playing Abe's Oddysee right now for example, where it is possible to get through a really tough section and have no way to save it until reaching a random area where it might or might not save your progress. Infuriating.

TLOU on survival is easy. Grounded mode is pretty challenging but oh boy - you have to pay for it.
Fez  +   287d ago
Never heard of grounded mode, sounds pretty cool... that would definitely increase the challenge!

There are challenging games out there it's just these days you have to find them. I can only imagine NES games with QTE's or slow motion features lol
MasterBassor  +   288d ago
oh man, im glad im not the only one, i totally agree with you, gaming died after 2006..
Next gen, where games last 5 hours, in those 5 hours 2 hours cut scenes, and one hour tutorials... next gen my ass.
games trying focus on being realistic and forget about being fun to play and forget about replayability
games focus on story, and adds linear gameplay to go along with the lame story.
games got easy, and forgot about being rewarding.
games focusing on multiplayer, ditching out single player.
games care about graphics and forget about good level design and you end up with many games looking the same
mario wanting to save the princess feels like a more engaging story than battlefield 4 story...

"press x to hide behind cover, enemies wont be able to shoot you", lol "kill death ratio bro"

remember the times we got stuck because the game requires you to think?
remember the feeling of being rewarded when you beat the boss and you have zero lives left?
remember playing the game over and over again just because its Fuc*ing awesome?

games that died with newer generations:
Resident Evil
Ninja Gaiden
Duke Nukem
Medal of Honor
Banjo Kazooie
Splinter Cell
and many others..

happy next gen gaming ^^ hype the game for its graphics man
levian  +   288d ago
Terribly unpopular opinion but 100% true and factual.

There have been a couple great games in the last generation but not as many as you'd think. The rest were okay, decent games not worth more than $15 to me, or something that would have been better if you could rent it for a weekend
Mega24  +   287d ago
Have you ever played an Elder Scrolls game? I love them for the freedom it gives the player to do what you want. Most players say "Oh the game is not challenging enough", Play them on the highest difficult from the start, its tough.

There are still games out there that are fun and complex, bring a level of difficulty and are challenging. It depends on the preference of some people, but I agree with your point of games being more casual.
MasterBassor  +   287d ago
Elder scrolls games, i agree, they are good, even tho Morrowind is by far my favorite, skyrim and oblivion are decent games. but there are no many other games that really are worth it.

but im not talking about just difficulty
im also talking about games being too linear lately, not rewarding, and too similar sometimes.

often i see unnecessary cutscenes that are pointless. hell many games' gameplay is becoming a cutscene (QTE)lol

and ffs, stop giving me tutorials about using the analog stick to walk, we are not that stupid, devs. or do they think so?

I just wish devs focus more on gameplay and not get distracted too much by how well the game looks or how many cut scenes they have to shove in the game to justify its poor length and gameplay, in the end we PLAY games, not watch them.

now off, need to buy that SNOOP DOG VOICE PACK DLC and the other FART DLC while my games finish patching /s lol
AcidKill  +   287d ago
Or... Maybe you should just grow your balls and play it on much higher difficulty.

I'm really tired of these "R.I.P Hardcore Gaming" and all that crap! Seriously, what a bunch of hippie yippie baloney! Knock it off, brah.

PS2 is da boss. He have good graphics AND gameplay.

looks more like a ps2 game more then ps1

Qrphe  +   288d ago
It looks like a really good Xbox OG game tbh.
tommygunzII  +   288d ago
I agree. First thing I thought of when I saw the picture was RE3.
PS2 had some very good looking games for its time.

OfficerDewey  +   287d ago
So your excuse is that it looks like a movie. . . How dare these devs do good graphics like that! The gameplay/gunplay is fast and brutal. It wouldn't be GOTY 2015 if it played like a movie. Shame joker to be so ignorant. To the batcave!
peshkavusCA  +   287d ago
I would consider this as a joke but when it's against their favourite console look how they react ;)

Of course it would look like Resident Evil 2..
Justindark  +   288d ago
more like ps2 if u ask me...
hkgamer  +   288d ago
definitely looks like early ps2 game more than PS1. I think most people on the interwebs are too used to PS1 emulation
Kavorklestein  +   287d ago
I agree. Or like stuck between n64-dreamcast/ps2 graphics.
RichardDawkins  +   288d ago
I would play this.
Blank  +   288d ago
Am I weird for wanting this? I wouldnt pay full price of course. Imagine the intro scene?!
Tedakin  +   288d ago
That's more Ps2.
hkgamer  +   288d ago
Internet people never played PS1 so they don't know that games look nothing like that. They play on emulators which has made ps1 games look that much better.

This screenshot definitely looks more like a PS2 game.

De mastering is the new remastering.
Kingdomcome247  +   288d ago
I'd dust off the ol' Psone, and give this a go. My Metal gear solid lid sticker is still hanging tough on my Psone, last time I saw it in storage. I may do it just for the heck of it now just to check out what game saves, I have on my memory card.
Broburger  +   288d ago
I'd buy it
sigfredod  +   288d ago
I have a beta code for ps3 , if someone want it
johny5  +   288d ago
Looks better then 99% of all PS1 games released!
hkgamer  +   288d ago

its a shame people think psone games look similar to what they see on emulators. I think most people should pull out their old ps1 and play to see what games really looked like.
Clown_Syndr0me  +   287d ago
I only play PS1 games on my actually PS1.
Lately Ive played Fighting Force, and it looked 100x worse than the emulated Youtube videos!
MasterCornholio  +   288d ago
That downgrade though.


P.S I'm only joking.

"keen eye"?,"resident evil"? WTF? it's clearly reminiscent of the model of silent hill, not RE.

PS2 graphics aside that is, cause there's no way that textures and antialiasing are on PS1
mrdxpr2  +   287d ago
Thats ps2 the ps1 the last of us in my opinion would be more metal gear solid 1 style.
