F*ck causal games what are your favorite games this gen?

At were all hardcore gamers. Most of us have been playing games for the majority of our lives. Every gamer has their games that they love. Games that as agamer you never want to see die. At playeressence this is a place to discuss why you like games and what your favorite games are. Games have reached a medium now that you shouldn’t be ashamed to tell the causal or non-gamer that you like Final Fantasy or Mass Effect. As a gamer I love when non-gamers try to tell me what I should be doing with my spare time. Its funny as hell to me cause most of these people that say this to me are chicks who watch dancing with the stars and the bachelor, (talk about a waste of time). To get to the point though, I want to know your personal favorite games this generation and why. Here is my list.

I've never understood why so many people love MGS4. I bought the MGS4 bundle and I've never finished the game. I'm about 2/3 done and go back now and then to try and get through it but there are just so many other better games to play.

I found it rather dull, the humour is juvenile and most of the enemy characters are ridiculous.

kneon2556d ago

Do you not find characters like Laughing Octopus ridiculous? Is scatological humour actually funny to anyone over the age of 14?

I've asked people to explain what makes this game great and have never heard a good, coherent argument in support of the game. It seems most people's love for the game has more to do with nostalgia for the previous games.

Biggest2556d ago

It's not as if you presented a serious premise to begin with. The MGS world is not one based in reality. The characters have ranged from a telepathic bondage freak to a guy living in a guy. Either you dig it or you don't. The things that you find dull are engaging to fans of the series. The humor that you find to be juvenile is perfectly mature to fans of the series. Long story short: You aren't a fan of MGS.

kneon2556d ago

To me the game's general tone seems rather serious, but then there are these silly elements that just don't fit. Serious can be good, silly can be good, combining serious and silly while still making it good is tricky business, and for me the game doesn't succeed at that.

And I find it interesting that I can voice a negative opinion about one of the most revered PS3 exclusives and not get marked as trolling or lose bubbles (at least not yet :^) ). When I voice a similar negative opinion about gears or halo I'm suddenly deemed to be trolling and lose bubbles.

Hmm, in no particular order I would say, Lost Odyssey, Metal Gear Solid 4, Uncharted 2, God of War 3, Killzone 3, Little Big Planet 2, Super Street Fighter IV, Final Fantasy XIII, Katamari Tribute, Muramasa, Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Valkkria Chronicles and Bayonetta. Those are just the console games at least.

Theyellowflash302557d ago

Great list Optical_Matrix. Lost Odyssey is a good one! Such a underated JRPG. There is a lot of diversity in your list. You got shooters, RPGs, Fighters, Action, SRPG. Man, I wish I liked that many genres!
