SchollA from Console ControllUs - as in the console controls us writes: We’re approaching the fourth quarter in gaming and I realized I don’t have any Triple A titles to look FORWARD to in what’s become the “push BACK” year.
Answer: Unfortunately, yes. And the bad part: people like it this way, specially new gen console owners, apparently.
Or no, its not any ones fault that the author isnt interested in any of the amazing games coming this year that arent remasters, such as assassins creed and lbp3, they are limiting their own choices, I myself am paying off games every week because I have way too many to pick up at one go, and the only remaster I am picking up at the mo will be gta5.
It's sad that Sony fanboys were pleased that much a one year old remake. They contributed to kill the video game industry.
I could have waited on next gen. My warranty is almost expired and my consoles especially my PS4 (PSN name: BKaca - for those who doubt I have one) haven't even been turned on much at all.
Well if you have a Steam account too. You could still be playing catch up like I have been doing for the past year.
I'm all about that Dragon Age Inquisition, The Evil Within, Mordor, Destiny, a couple of indies, Advanced Warfare. There are more. Idk wtf you like if there aren't a couple of appealing titles there. I have more than I can afford to buy this year.
I confess, I'm guilty of buying these remastered editions LOL! I bought the last of us, tomb raider DE, metro redux and soon GTA5. Only because I haven't played or purchased any of them on my PS3 yet, so it works out great for me cause I get to play all the superior ps4 editions :-) I also got killzone SF and oh man, the multiplayer is sweeeet! runs so smooth at 60fps and it looks as sharp as 1080p to me(on my 55"LCD) so I don't see what the hate is all about?!
It would seem to be impossible to actually have a rational debate with PS4 owners on this site. If you like any of the other systems, think there are any good games on the other systems or if you point out the obvious, as the author did in this article, you get nothing but disagrees. Scientists should really study this phenomena, as there has never been such illogical brand loyalty with any kind of consumer product like this ever. It's very strange and it's also very scary how easily people can be swayed. One simple and very obvious example would be how last generation Xbox 360 users were ridiculed for paying to play online, but now that the PS4 requires people to play purchased games online, PS4 owners think that paying to play online is great. We have clearly entered the twilight zone.
@BattleAxe: That would require you binging intelligent conversion to the table yourself. But, as that comment proves, your as full of fanboy BS as those you attack. I've seen you, numerous times, downplay something Sony-related that someone else was interested in. You've even twisted this into some sort of Playstation fanboy problem, rather than the problem being the author has a decidedly narrow taste in games. The problem with Xbox fanboys- feel free to count yourself along them- is that reality is something different for them, compared to what the rest of us see. Or has most of the gaming world been easily swayed, and it's only the Xbox faithful who forgive anything Microsoft does with a happy "Think nothing of it!" that are hard to impress?
@ Spotie You should take a trip way back in my comment history before you make the presumption that I am somehow an Xbox fanboy. Personally, I'm not a fan of any console at all this generation. I currently own two (2) PS3 consoles and my NES console from when I was a kid in the 80s. To me, this generation is a cash grab. There's no denying that the graphics on consoles have never been better and they're far more cutting edge than they ever have been, but that's where it ends for me. If you take a step back and compare last generation to this new generation, and analyse what you got for your money back then, verses what you get these days as far as game content with full game releases on day one, and also free online play on PS2 and PS3, then there's no way you can cheerlead these new consoles. Not to mention the playback features that are lacking on the new consoles when compared to the PS3 in particular. Gaming is not a cheep hobby anymore, and it's getting worse as time goes on.I decided to upgrade my PC from a GTX 260 to a GTX 780 for this new generation, because anyone who is thinking clearly can see that consoles are actually more expensive than PCs are over the course of a generation. The cost of the games are higher, and you have to pay a subscription on top of the high cost of the games. My GTX 780 was a little more than the cost of an Xbox One, but I'll be paying pennies on the dollar for games on Steam and Origin when compared with consoles, and I won't be paying for a subscription to play the games online. It just baffles me to see how enthusiastic people are to pay more for everything. It also baffles me to see people get excited for loads of cell phone quality indie games and last gen remasters, while seeing fewer new AAA IPs than we saw during both the PS2 and PS3 eras. The last reason I made a switch to PC this generation, was because I got burned with owning a library of digital downloads on PS3 without the ability to bring them over to the PS4. Heck in a way, everyone got burned with the lack of backwards compatibility this generation. Well switching to PC solves that problem for good, as backwards compatibility is ongoing. No matter how many console generations go by, I'll still be able to play my PC games on any PC at any time, which is an extremely valuable feature for me. I should also mention, that this GTX 780 that I own, will probably last well into the WiiMe, PS5 and Xbox Two generation. The power performance from this graphics card is roughly twice that of the PS4. For me, it's all about value for money, backwards compatibility, longevity no subscriptions and power performance.
What about LBP3, The Evil Within, and Destiny?!
Destiny is honestly not all that it's cracked up to be, and i'm not sure about The Evil Within anymore. Season Passes tend to leave a bad taste.
@Roccetarius - it isn't all it's cracked up to be? Dude you should go work at IGN or GameSpot! They haven't even played the full version and don't know what the entire game entails and yet YOU DO! I am jealous! And also disappointed. From what I've played (the beta) Destiny is everything it's cracked up to be and MORE.
I'll admit the season pass has me a bit bummed with that game, but I still want it! Horror games are my favorite... Next to good RPGs. The Destiny beta was a lot of fun IMO and I'm thinking about getting that game, not sure yet. LBP3 will make for some good times with the woman. Those 3 games and any others are more than enough for me. Busy life outside of games
Super Smash Brothers 3DS/Wii U , Captain Toad, Ac:Unity, Destiny, Forza Horizon 2, Fantasy Life, Azure Striker Gunvolt,...All still to release. 30 other games that aren't just remakes or sports games as well. 2014 is a solid year, but 2015 should potentially be much better.
First world problems sigh
Seriously? "Filled with"? The author acts like there are only 10 games releasing this year and remastereds and sports games are like 7 out of 10 of them! Sure the remastereds are getting the spotlights because people like the author like to make a huge fuss about them like the publisher put a gun on their heads. I don' share the same perspective as the author as I quite enjoy it this year and next year would be much better.
I don't have that problem with my XBOX ONE , sorry I turn to the dark side.
Great that's disappointing to hear
The first year of a any console's launch has never experienced a windfall of AAA games. Why on earth would anyone who claims to be a "gamer" whine about the lack of games in the first year? It's always been that way. Either except it and wait or sell you system and go back to your mobile phone.
100% agree. Now make me a sword, please.
"My Gaming Year Filled With Remasters And Sports Games". How? Currently, I own 12 PS4 games. Two are remasters (about to pick up a third, Metro Redux, because I've never played 2033 or Last Light), not one of them is a sports game. And the games I'm buying later this year? Three new IPs. How your year has been "filled" with remasters and sports games, I don't know. Sounds to me like you need to expand your gaming interests. And enough about remasters already. People want them - that's why they're being made. Gamers were crying out for The Last of Us Remastered and a new-gen GTA V and the devs gave the thumbs up. Now everyone's whining. Um, what? If you've got an issue with remasters, just. Don't. Buy. Them. These rants are getting really old now.
You sir, deserve a bubble. Well said. I couldn't have said it better myself.
Why thank you. *tips hat*
It isn't like these companies can just take wave a wand and make a new AAA game appear. It takes years to develop these, and they keep getting delayed for quality reasons. Part of the reasons the remasters exist is to fill the gap. If they didn't release the remasters at all, these people still wouldn't be happy. Instead they'll be complaining that there's 'nothing but indies'
By the end of the year I'll have 3 remastereds: TLOS,TR,Metro I'll have Destiny, BF4,Kz,UfC,Infamous SS,Advanced Warfare, Need for speed, and Assasins creed I don't see why people complain smh
with all these remastered games its going to really devalue PlayStation Now. its kind of ironic how developers were crying like little girls on how underpowered last gen consoles were but yet all we getting are remastered games.
ah, another wannabe writer attempt at baiting for page clicks. EPIC FAIL.
People get too affront over remasters. No one's forcing you to buy them; no one's forcing you to pay for the "same" game again. I personally like remastered games, as I get to replay some of my favorite games from last-gen (TLOU and GTA V for example) on more powerful hardware, allowing for better graphical fidelity, higher frame rate, and an overall better experience. Now, don't act like we're not getting any other games besides remastered ones; Uncharted 4, The Division, Far Cry 4, Arkham Knight, Destiny etc.. all say hello.
Cant necessarily say filled since there is only 3 remastered games worth gettin TLOU, GTA 5, & The Master Chief Collection
Metro Redux is sweet as well. I'd say its a must buy if you don't have them already. it is 2 lengthy awesome overhauled games with DLC for a fair price, discounted even if you buy them again on steam to enjoy the extra added fidelity, seamless transitions, paths, reworked gameplay and dlc.
Remasters are less than 5% of next-gen releases. People blow it out of proportion. There will be 200 games on the PS4 by Christmas if the current schedule holds. Plenty of variety. What are people who are complaining looking for exactly?
They want everything handed to them on a platter. These people aren't gamers, they're cry babies.
These kind of people have sad lives as gamers. Find another hobby.
