"++Good"

Now I've got a present baking in the oven, got my baubles wrapped and have spent the last hour trying to hang a cake...oh crap...I don't think I read the directions properly.

If I got that $50, I promise to invest in a "Following Instructions for Dummies" book...or DriveClub...

...let me just say that I will try to use this gift card for good instead of evil. #61
My favorite games for story have been the ones found in titles like "Journey", "Ico" and "Shadow of the Colossus". In the medium of games, I personally feel that "minimal dialog made up by tons of experience" is key.

I have had more memorable stories from games like WoW, FF XIV, Rainbow Six and others through experiences I have had with the gameplay. Taking down a huge creature, resurrecting a friend moments before the end of a bat... #3.2.1
I was a HUGE fan of the first Borderlands and absolutely loved playing the game with friends. Even the intro movie was flipping hilarious.

Picking up with Borderlands 2, I enjoyed that title, but I didn't have the same level of enjoyment as the first. Not saying it was a bad game by any stretch, but definitely not as laugh out loud enjoyable as the first.

All that said, the writing in both Borderlands is superlative to that of Destiny but I've al... #3.3
Wait, what? We generally don't hate on things so I'm genuinely curious as to whom you are referring to. Also, we were big fans of CoD4 and look forward to what is coming out in November.

From everything we've seen the new CoD is looking good thus far. #2.1
It's a bit of a stretch with the #GamerGate thread, but I've always known that any time you scratch the surface of the inner circle of games news that there's a price to be paid. Case in point, I still remember when Strength Gamer was verbally attacked on Twitter by Ben Kuchera over a benign tweet about 'possible nepotism' in the press.

I'm up to level 14 and have enjoyed 90% of my experience with Destiny thus far. Sure, there may be issues with the... #1.1
I never did like that "gate" moniker as it shows a lack of creativity in the media. Personally, I'd use something more like "#TheGameisUp", "#Gamesmageddon" or "#RedRingsExposed" for the last few weeks, but I'm not in the position to make those kinds of decisions.

That said, I only used it as it's become part of the vernacular in the past few weeks and I completely agree with the stupidity of 'GATE'-ing on everything. #4.1
That's great to hear, 3-4-5, and I'm glad that you are enjoying the game.

Unfortunately, I've more than 10 years of baggage surrounding this product so maybe I'm a bit more jaded than the average football consumer.

You shared some really good points in your comment but from videos like the one below, I think the running game would infuriate me to no end. #2
Direct quote from the review, "Madden NFL 15 is the football game I’ve been waiting so long for. It’s not going to turn the Madden world on its head, as there are no fundamental, earth-shattering changes here."

Gotcha! It's good to see differing opinion on this game but, for now, I'm sticking with the consensus of the game community at large that this game (along with NHL 15) isn't up to the standards of next gen.

The lack of competit... #1
Well, to be fair, this is the most anticipated title for several different groups in gaming:

For Activision this is highly anticipated as they know that Call of Duty will sell, but everyone (including their investors) is anticipating great things from Bungie and this title.

For Halo fans, this is a chance to see Bungie return to their Marathon/original Halo roots which had been compromised (as many have said) since they 'mom tested' Halo 2.

I'm about to say something semi-insane/blasphemous at the dawn of this years' football season. The NFL's exclusivity agreement with EA's Madden has squeezed any enjoyment I could have extracted for this sport in the offseason.

To earn my interest (and consumer dollar), the NFL has to either bring back competition (like NFL 2K15) or it's going to be NHL, NBA and Major League Baseball for me.

Heck, even e-sports are looking like a better... #5
Metaphorically speaking, MS has essentially cut out their eyes because they had a stomach ache.

To your point, I don't think Microsoft can afford to sit on their hands, but they have just told loyal Kinect developers, like Harmonix, that "we don't see the work you're doing as vital to our future". So now they have angered early adopters, Kinect loyalists AND their own developers with this impromptu announcement.

As much as I didn&... #36.1.2
Oh man, am I the only one that thinks this is a mistake?

Let me clarify, I don't own an Xbox One yet (still have my 360) and I'm not a Kinect owner but Microsoft was so hard lined on this issue at last year's Q1 presser, E3 event and holiday that this announcement essentially tells early adopters that this $100 add-on is now a feature we may not be supporting in the future.

I think, at this point, Microsoft should have doubled down and said, &quo... #36
Having tried the Oculus VR headset at E3, PAX and most recently at SXSW, I concur with this man. Every time I put it one of these on, it gets harder to take it off. If you haven't tried one of these, you'd be amazed what it adds to the gaming experience.

(Played Game of Thrones, Eve Online & various tech demos) #6
I think there is a very strong possibility that may still happen. Might be limited to select retailers but it makes sense to add that SKU to the lineup to cement the fact that it's an XBoxOne thang (like the old MGS4 PS3 bundle). #3.1
Fire Emblem is definitely in there (in the Best Handheld Game of the Year category). Always have loved that series. #1.1
Well, seeing that both Dustforce and TxK hit the first week of February, let me just say I'm happy that it is next week and not the week after. I've been looking forward to both of those titles since mid-2013. #3
After the whole Dragon's Crown review I vowed never to return to that site and have stayed try to that for more than six months. #18.1
Oh good LORD, yes! Nintendo's been going with Golin Harris for the past decade and that relationship is toxic for any future market growth for their company.

Nintendo needs to do what Sony (as painful as it was) and fire their backward thinking PR team and bring in some fresh ideas like those that were seen in the 90's (which, admittedly, many of those ideas were crap too). #6.1
I'm loving that this post has the same temperature as the article about new Madden footage for the PS4. It's a split right down the middle of people who want more information on Madden and people who want more information about having Madden change (see below). #10
I like how we post a link with additional information on the interview and someone opted to 'disagree'. It's like there are ostriches on N4G who choose to shove their heads in the sand rather than recognize new information.

Knowledge is power, people. #6.1
