The developer stated that the villain of Far Cry 4 isn't a white guy...so, you know, the article kind of falls apart pretty damn quick.
Depicting racism or racist, shi**y attitudes is not the same as lauding them...people need to get that through their thick skulls. #10

Yes, they very much ARE too expensive. They're practically pushing people towards downloading complete Rom sets by charging so much.
Should be £1 per NES game, £1.50 per SNES and £2.00 per N64 at maximum. #5

Be ready for very basic gameplay...think a slightly more complicated Dragon's Lair, or a slightly more fast paced Interactive DVD Game. It's fun though, the cheesy vibe carries it through. #13.1

The game shouldn't have even gotten a PG rating...there is nothing to it at all. Even the soap operas at the time the game was released featured skimpier and more revealing clothes than anything in Night Trap. As for the "violence", honestly, there's worse violence in any random Tom and Jerry cartoon. The only blood seen in the game is when a guy is being drained in a closet, and it's just red liquid running through a tube....'50s monster movies were more graphic.... #9.1.1

YES!!! Seriously, this game is pure nostalgia for me, despite it's overall cheesiness. Just that looping cricket noise alone when you switch to the driveway camera....love it. Can't wait for the re-release...instant must buy from me, no matter the price. Release Double Switch and Ground Zero Texas as well please. #15

Kinect is terrible for anything but the most basic of party games...that's just a fact. People keep talking about it's potential, but it's been 3 and a half years since the original version was released, and developers are still yet to give us any convincing evidence of the thing's suitability for gaming.
Voice commands are useful, but they don't need an inaccurate motion camera to be utilised. There is no game that is made better with Kinect, with the possible e... #14

MS commissioned them for an exclusive...that's pretty much why, same as any 3rd party dev who makes an exclusive for a single platform. #6

I blame the fact that MS keep bringing up the power differential and all the things they're going to do to try and make up for it....it's all marketing BS in an effort to halt the perception that the PS4 is the more powerful hardware.
Sensible people everywhere have accepted this as fact by now, it's MS trying to pursue this by constantly mentioning it. If you want to "blame" anyone, blame MS and their PR team. They should concentrate on services, features and... #25.1

It IS a problem if your framebuffer is larger than 32mb...it becomes a significant bottleneck which DOES slow things down and leads to complications.
ESRAM is not a win, nor is it preferred by developers, it is a patch, a band aid to reduce the impact of the slow-ass DDR3 memory that Microsoft used for the One.
It will lead to more and more compromises having to be made as the generation goes on. It really needed to be double the size, but there was simply no room left on the... #26

Microsoft claim this sort of crap a lot, and as yet have shown ZERO evidence of any actual benefit it gives to games. The Titanfall AI grunts were supposed to be powered by the cloud, but that's not much of a demonstration because the AI on those things is dumb as a post...they are total fodder.
I have no doubt that the cloud can aid with certain functions, but not 3 times the power of an Xbox One, that's pie in the sky. #58

Left 4 Dead should not really be on that list. I mean, it can get frantic when you're getting swarmed, but it is a full on action title and doesn't really have the atmosphere needed to be a true horror.
Resident Evil I would have on the list, but probably only at number 10 because again, it isn't really all that scary. There's tension galore at times, and the dogs crashing through the windows got me just like it got everyone else, but it really is more of a B movie v... #4

Nintendo aren't in the financial trouble that Sega was in...Sega needed the Dreamcast to be a massive success, Nintendo can take a failure or two (though I'd much prefer it if they'd get their butts in gear and adapt a little). #27

They didn't try a traditional Banjo....just some vehicle based game that was mediocre in comparison. Banjo Threeie would turn some heads. #3.1.1

No, other countries do as well. Both terms are absolutely fine, the name "soccer" was invented by the people who created the rules of the game way back when.
We in the UK call it football because it's our main ball sport. Rugby is actually called Rugby Football. American Football is actually called Gridiron Football, Australia has a version called Australian Rules Football...they are all variations of the same basic concept. Each region has their dominant form, and... #6.1.1

It's this kind of thinking that damages the industry and leads to dev closures due to over-reaching with dreams of matching the numbers of established franchises that appeal to a wider audience than your game can manage.
Remember when Capcom threw everything at Resident Evil 6 in an attempt to capture the Call of Duty audience? Remember how they sold nearly 7 million copies and they still considered that a disappointment due to hiring a staff of 600 to work on the game, spending... #12

It's far from easy to port from PS4 to One...especially if the developer has used a deferred renderer, which the ESRAM in the One struggles to cope with at higher resolutions. The architectures are broadly similar, but there's a fair few compromises when bringing games to the One...ESRAM size, the allowance for Kinect (which devs can choose to forego at the expense of some Kinect function), weaker GPU etc.
Porting from One to PS4 should be easier though. #5.2

They've sold more than the 360 did at the same point in it's life time. That being said, the 360 was severely supply constrained for many, many months after it's initial release. I remember I pre-ordered mine from a local Blockbuster store that had 15 pre-orders, yet they only received a single Premium console on launch day, with about 3 Core's in case anyone wanted those instead.
The One is saturated in stores around the world, hence the pretty large discounting to... #3.2

This doesn't ring true at all - from what we've heard of Sony from developers since the reveal of the console, to how the news of the exclusivity deal was broken, this in no way comes off like a Bayonetta 2/Nintendo situation where the development was saved by them.
They're trying to say that Respawn - headed up by the guys who were responsible for an unbelievable run of sales success with Call of Duty - couldn't get the financing to finish a game with such little cont... #67

The graphics are nothing special though bunt....hardly "next gen". It's not ugly or anything, but Ryse is a more impressive looking game (though lacking slightly in the gameplay department by all accounts). #6.1.3

Respawn wanted to take on CoD and Destiny....EA cut them off at the knees with that exclusivity deal. You can bet they won't make the same mistake with the sequel unless MS throw ungodly amounts of money at them...but even that may not be as important as market share.

The sequel needs more content and more customisation...an actual single player campaign in order to build the world more effectively. Perhaps even a separate co-op campaign too, or they risk being left beh... #4.2
