When you look at games like Resistance 2 with its massive multiplayer gaming and fan base, also Gears of War 2 that equally has a big following and fantastic graphics. It will be hard to top these games, but it has been done by something "Little".
LBP will be top 3 this year games for sure. My most anticipated ps3 title :) I dont know why Resistance would even be near the top, though.
Because the original was actually a good game with a story that left gamers wanting to know the rest. The Multiplayer also stands to be an interesting and actually fun aspect to the game. All those make it near the top.
Resisistance had one of the best online in my opinion. I mean they had in-game buddy list, in-game chat room, in-game messaging. And really had no lag. I think the online portion of the game is where it was the best. The story was awsome as well.
Is just trying to get you worked up. Resistance is amazing. LBP is THE GAME of the next-gen. Look out October 2008!!!
I for once was being honest. LBP GOTY I think Resistance is garbage. "I mean they had in-game buddy list, in-game chat room, in-game messaging." I can imagine how much you'd like Halo. "I think the online portion of the game is where it was the best." I strongly beg to differ.
Coming out of E3 Little Big Planet gained the most positive hype out of the three games mentioned in this article. Halo 3 isn't for everyone. For me the game is too slow. For a sci-fi i'd want it to be fast pace.
Of course it is, because you can sell levels!
Breakfast- ("I mean they had in-game buddy list, in-game chat room, in-game messaging." I can imagine how much you'd like Halo.) I like how you left out "And really had no lag" there.
Im not spinning anything. This is honest Breakfast. Halo has more lag then Resistance...so what? Its still 10x the game, online. Edit: Stephen Colbert for President :)
But seriously Resistance multiplayer is better then Halo's. (At least when i can find a game when it isn't one shot one kill, i mean seriously what's the point of having all thoughs guns if you can just shoot one round with a carbine and kill some one. OK rant over) I enjoy playing Halo from time to time but in the end all it comes down to (not counting the sniper rifle, or the missile launcher) is just running towards each other shooting and seeing who presses melee first. Resistance's guns are awesome the bullsie to lock on to a target around corners, Auger that can shoot a wall shield and through walls. Anyway thats just how i see it. And yes Stephen Colbert is awesome (I had his picture here first damn it i just don't most much) lol
This game will kill mario :P
Dangerous goal but this will create a new genre on consoles
So there's this site, G4, 1UP, any others?
from what i've seen of LBP it looks amazing..you can basically create your own game..thats awesome, but i'm not one of those people that will be sitting in front my tv making levels and the rest of the stuff you can do in the game...there is way to many games in my opinion that deserve my time R2,GoW2,MGS4..LBP should've came out on the wii..you know for the little kids...i know i will get a lot of disagrees but f... it. LBP will not be the game of the year like most of you think..and with the other games coming out this year..this game is way on the bottom of my list..
you do not have to create your own levels, the game brings its own levels pre made and you can download users levels as well. Not that I think you would even have the creativity to start making your own, because you weren't even creative enough to use anything else than ... in your sentences. In the first couple of weeks after release you will be sorry, cause you will see the remakes of the most famous side scrollers done in HD, and you will see how much potential this game has. It may be kiddy, well sorry, its not another shooter, but the wii couldnt ever run this game so, no.
imo for one reason only. It's simple enough for the most casual gamer to pick up and play, yet it's complex enough for the most hardcore to have some real fun and a real challenge with it. Also sackboys don't look that cute to where it's sickening. I mean where else could you possible have master chief, solid snake, kratos, marcus fenix, mario, and link in the same game? at least sackboy replicas of them anyway :)
I got my opinions about game of the year, but the point i wanna make is that everyone is really focused on first party games this year and its crazy. We got games like Fallout, Call of Duty 5, 007, Midnight Club, BIA:HH, Prince of Persia, and the list goes on and on. I can say that as of right now, I have all 3 next gen consoles. Also, I think games like R2 and Gears of war 2 are totally overrated. I could understand if it was still 2007, but its not,, Seeing games like the new Tomb Raider really got my eyes open to new things. Aliens looks cool,, and so does borderlands, rise of the agronauts, and lets not forget about all of the sports titles. Gears, R2 are against each other,, nothing else.
HAHA thats right, LittleBigPlanet will be 1000x better than Gears of war 2- now i know to all you xbots that statement will infuriate you and make your angry little fanboy fingers work hard to prove me wrong whats this? its a kids game is it? well ok if you say so, call me a kid then for enjoying the best game of 08 :D
should u really be calling anybody a fanboy with such a fanboyish statement ...... Retard
im no fanboy i own both consoles
LBP seems to have that magic I thought I'd never see in games again. Last time I felt it as a little kid when I played early platformers with my C-64 / Amiga 500. As funny as it sounds.
agreed strongly with this article, LBP is the biggest game for me in 2008.. anyone care to differ, stick you head up your arse!!!
Little Big Planet is a game I certianly have warmed to. I had my doubts about it before as I always do with user created content based games but from lookign at a lot of the recent videos it really does seem as if it is possible to make a level on par with a classic Sonic or mario game. obviously you cant make LBP into a Sonic or Mario game as the way your character controls is a lot different. But replace Sackboy with a character that was as fast as, could jump the same height, and do the spin attack just the way Sonic does you could easily make a copy of Green Hill Zone Act 1 with this game. I can't wait to get stuck in.
i dont know if it was cus i was facking high when i watched it but the resistance 2 e3 trailer never had great graphics, i dunno am i the only one that thought this.
no your not alone,the 360 fanboys will agree with you
hey canadian, it has nothin to do with fanboys, just 360 owners who've had a chance to play really great FPS games. just cuz you only own one console doesn't mean that ppl who own 2 are fanboys. i only see one fanboy in this thread and that would be you. grow up and stop using a word that most accurately describes you to describe someone else. game looks good, not great, definitely not amazing.
How am i a fanboy? i like Sony? yeah? i like nintendo? yeah? I even like 1 or 2 microsoft games.just because i hate that greedy lieing company that automatically makes me a fanboy?
this article lost all credibility when they said resistance and gears have the same fan base. it's not even close. and guy above me, no, i agree with you. it does look good, but nothing special.
Based on pure hype, the most intriguing titles this year, to me are: Fallout 3 Mirrors Edge Brutal Legend Spore LittleBigPlanet Resistance, Re5, Gears etc...look great and I can't wait to play them but LittleBigPlanet, at this point looks like one the greatest games I've ever seen. I really hope it lives up to the hype. Seriously, I can't remember being this excited for a game for a really long time.
What you just said is my list of most anticipated games this year sans spore. I REALLY hope Brutal Legend comes out this year.
LBP is the game to beat this year. It is by far what I call next gen in terms of side scrolling. It doesn't redifign next gen but pulls side scrolling games into the new consoles with flare and it looks amazing!
