Wouldnt agree with MAG but the others are pooh

ryuzu2288d ago

I've put about 200 hours into MAG....

I guess that goes to show the quality of the PS3 line up when MAG is one of the worst exclusives...

When one lists MAG as a 'bad' exclusive, imagine how good the PS3 exclusives are!

Dave13512288d ago

mag was very overhyped and had poor overall quality and gameplay if you compare it to how awesome they made it look at E3. alot of people were disappointed

ryuzu2287d ago

@Dave

I think it was the other way round. There was a lot of expectation prior to last year's E3 until it got demo'd. After the demo people were a bit underwhelmed by what they saw.

The beta later in the year didn't help much but I stuck with it, and after release I began to understand what was good and bad about MAG.

It's not perfect at all, but it offers something no other platform (including PC) manages, requires skill, teamwork and has for that period been solid and largely lagless.

New DLC today too :)

I'm another that have over 200 hours in. Loved every bit of it. Met a lot of people playing MAG.

"why did they put that on the list, why they put this on the list"

This is just some article some dude in his under pants by his computer wrote down when they were bored and didn't know what to do to bring more hits to their site so they created a list.

It is not some official list from the gaming gods but it seems everytime there one of these "top 5 whatevers" list there are gamers on here that look to them as gospel as if it was a scientific study and now the results are out becuase it was on N4G.

Don't know why these top 10 blah blah article always get high degrees and hits but they do, odd.

Dee_912287d ago

It was a fun game
i thought Haze was good from what i saw

Anon19742287d ago (Edited 2287d ago )

First off, the inclusion of MAG is just ridiculous. Give your head a shake.

Second, Haze was merely an average game. To include this in a "worst of" list just goes to show the author either never played the game, or doesn't play that many games. The gameplay was fun at times, the split-screen co-op was a blast, the split-screen online play with a guest was something more games should do and the story ambitiously tried to blur the lines between good and bad but unfortunately the attempt at social commentary didn't fit with the game. There were things that bugged me about the game, but it's far from a "worst of" game.

MAG just leaves me puzzled. Did he play a different game? Maybe he confused it with Socom but even that game doesn't deserve to be on a "worst of" list.

chazjamie2287d ago

no it just shows u have 200 hours to waste on bad game. 200 hours, wow, stay away from world of war craft then.

ThanatosDMC2287d ago (Edited 2287d ago )

He probably never touched MAG or he's one of those rage quitters that get pwned so fast by vets or has the tendency to catch grenades. Probably just like those guys in pennyarcade.

There's so much hate against MAG. I think, it's because people cant believe the 256 in action with tons of smoke, bullets, explosions, and 256 people moving around without lag.

MAG, almost like Warhawk, has a steep learning curve. The more you die the faster you learn.

Oh yeah, im taking in new clan members who wants to join me in SVER. The clan name is [AMF] "A Midget Fighter". The only requirements is that you have to have a medkit and resuscitation ability and that you kill as many red dots as possible. Just friend or message me on PSN.

Lol. NowGamer is hardly dudes in their underpants. Do some research before posting slights at the site.

Anyway... the article 'Top Five Worst Xbox 360 Exclusives Ever" is under construction and going up shortly. Which I'm sure will make you happy.

Morituri2287d ago

How would one go about researching a d-list amateur games website? I think that you are a little bit too impressed with these hacks.

Biggest2287d ago

He IS one of those hacks you speak of. LOL

adrock20992287d ago

Except that article is just as garbage. Say what you will about the 360 or the Halo series, but ODST is far from a bad game, let alone one of the worst exclusives for the system. Both of these articles are just flame-bait garbage posted for some quick hits.

sikbeta2287d ago

MAG? Seriously? Pffft, this guy know crap, MAG Delivers, I'd put X-edge in that list...

talltony2287d ago

MAG DOES NOT SUCK! MAG WAS REALLY FUN I JUST DONT PLAY IT ANYMORE.

PS3Freak2287d ago

This list is decent, all the have to do is put Mobile Suit Gundum in First, and shift everything else back one, and its good. That way Mag will not be on there, as it doesn't deserve to be.

pixelsword2287d ago (Edited 2287d ago )

MAG is a great game, I have almost 300 hours logged in and I can't think of a game on the PC, 360 or PS3 (I don't own a Wii) that I put that much time into for an online game. The only thing that this game needs is a single player game, even one with a flimsy story like UTIII.

Lair is another great game that got shot down for no good reason, Gametrailers assassinated that game acting like a feature that Factor 5 put in so people could see what the dragon picks up and thrown was a huge bug in the game. The game isn't perfect, but it still stands as probably the most technically advanced game out on consoles until someone can lay down another game and go feature by feature and show me otherwise. As a matter of fact, if anyone can do that I'd appreciate it if they'd tried... they'd lose, but I'd appreciate it.

Haze is butt, but some liked it. I played it and my brother and me were laughing at how bad it was. The multiplayer was ok though; but it won't win any awards.

I didn't play the other ones.

ThanatosDMC2287d ago

Liar was epic. A lot of graphical glitches though in the night mission. It took me forever to figure out how to kill the big serpent thing in the ocean. I love the epic battle in the sky with the floating rocks and those damn giant dragons on steroids. They made my dragon look like a kitten next to them.

ico922287d ago

Mag was a decent FPS i recommend it for hardcore shooter fans but one of the worst ps3 exclusives lol no way

MaximusPrime2288d ago

disagree with MAG and Lair. Both are good

jerethdagryphon2287d ago

lair is lovely grat sound great battles controll took getting used to breat for a first gen game mag is mag yes it took a graphics hit but they focusedo n the netcode so decent graphics for a decent multiplayer game...sorry not on that list

Luzce2287d ago

Trying to decrypt what you wrote...

Lair is good, MAG has crappy graphics but shouldn't have been on the list?

...jeez

jerethdagryphon2287d ago

not crappy graphic but it took a hit to freeup more cpu time for network stuff

Meryl2288d ago

how on earth did MAG get on that list?? they must be a COD noob 0_0
I am glad WKC did not feature on that list, I love that RPG lots:):)

cleanhealthy122287d ago

cod noob? are you good at cod? probably not. you = cod noob.

Commodore2287d ago

Anyone can be good at CoD because it takes no skill.

My sister, who's 14 doesn't do that bad.

MAG actually takes skill

Newtype2287d ago

COD is run and gun and powerups. And if you say hardcore mode, noobs use the heartbeat sensor and ninja crap and camp like little wusses.

PopEmUp2287d ago

you a noob simple. Aiming is a basic step of shooting, but many people fail to do that

ThanatosDMC2287d ago

BWUAHAHAHA! He thinks he has skillZ in COD?! COD requirs skillzzz? That's news to me.

cleanhealthy122287d ago (Edited 2287d ago )

i bet you im better than all of you at CoD. MAG is the worst shooter ive played after haze this gen.

What are your CoD K/d's or win ratios & streaks if its so easy? i bet mine makes yours look embarrassing.

in fact, i bet im better than you at mag too. have any of you kids who spend all day on this site even won money on a game? have you been on gb? no? then stop talking as if you were good GG

Chris3992288d ago

We haven't had nice samurai (not ninja) action like that since Onimusha. It got hammered in the reviews because of the infamous "giant enemy crab".

I've played the game twice and it ties in nicely with the 1st one and has some pretty epic moments. Not bad, considering I bought the thing for $20.

STK0262288d ago (Edited 2288d ago )

I respectfully disagree, as one who bought Genji 2 full price at launch, even when compared to the somewhat lackluster launch titles of the PS3, Genji was subpar, the graphics left me completely unimpressed, the combat did not entertain me at all. The only reason this game sold some copies is because there wasn't much else to play on the PS3 at the time, with the exception of Resistance.

And while it did get hammer by gamers for the Giant enemy crab thing, critics hammered it because it was a poorly made game.

It might have been worth 20$, but it definitely was not worth 60$.

@MaximusPrime
MAG is a great game, but Lair, not so much, at least when played using the SIXAXIS. I know they released a patch to use "regular" controls, but the fact remain that when it was released, the game was barely playable and was utterly unresponsive. The worst part about it has to be the fact that Factor 5 said they were using the sixaxis because the game would be unplayable using normal controls... yet they released a patch a few months later to allow it...

jerethdagryphon2287d ago

uising the unresponsive controll to me felt like i was controlling a large angry fire breathing critter, its not a f16 it handles like it hass mass whats the problem with that?

lair was fine i enjoyied it greatly loved the story

reason it got marked down it people expected something it wasnt same with mag

andron6662287d ago

Genji was disappointing to me and a bad game. It could have been good, but they made too many weird faults.

I really liked the PS2 Genji game, but the PS3 one was misguided.

The camera was too close to the character, and you couldn't see all enemies around you. When the combat system (which is actually quite good) depends on countering and avoiding enemies that's no good.

Also the fixed camera made the platforming parts an annoying chore of misguided jumps and deaths.

It could also be hard to find out exactly where you were supposed to go and how to get there. It got so bad and annoying that I didn't even finish the game, it just wasn't fun...

enkeixpress2288d ago (Edited 2288d ago )

They aren't that bad.. Alot of fun to play, Excellent graphics too
