I still think pound for pound, Uncharted 2 is the best game Naughty Dog has ever done. The Last of Us, is VERY, very close to that. Best game EVER made? Opinion varies, but as far as weight of industry impact goes, I don't think it belongs in that echelon.

Let me put it simply, Final Fantasy 7 made the Sony Playstation what it is today. It broke sales records, sold consoles and ignited big competition. In its own right, a ground shattering gaming achievement for its time.... #27

This is why I hope console gamers will stop suggesting 30fps is better and more "cinematic" than 60fps. Playing on a controller with the latter is one of the best gaming experiences imaginable. Impeccable response times, gorgeous visuals without any eye strain. This is what I've had on PC for years, and I hope PS4 owners warm to the experience, because even a doubled framerate makes all the difference. #11

Great story focused campaign without tacked-on multiplayer to deter from the actual meat of the game. Fantastic characters, immaculate mechanics. Sometimes, getting the core of the game right can mean everything. Wolfenstein doesn't aim to break down barriers, but it nails everything it sets out to do.

I honestly feel it's the best game I've played thus far in 2014. There's no DLC, season pass or garbage time multiplayer here. It reminded me of some of the cla... #19

Screenshots are one thing, general performance is another.

Yeah, the PS3 port looks pretty good all things considered, but there will be no doubt that the PS4 absolutely obliterates it from a performance perspective, from resolution to framerate. #28

To everyone that thought this would be better than The Evil Within,

I laugh heartily. #5

This article is ridiculous beyond reason, and the idiots in the comment thread are eating it up as fact.

Firstly, Shinji Mikami, if you aren't aware, redefined and revolutionised the survival horror genre. Secondly, the article cherry picks scenes taken from a TRAILER completely out of context and writes a critique on it with no basis for argument. Lastly, he hasn't actually played a minute of the game? That virtually refutes any stupid pre-conceived notion he might h... #37

xBigxBossx, it is evident by your name and your avatar that you are obviously a big fan of these games. If you are any kind of fan, you shouldn't consider a package this weak to be a product of "integrity". As good or polished as this could possibly be for the amount of time it offers, it is in no way worth the price, nor the satisfaction of its die-hard fan base. People like you should be the angriest that they would release this and expect fans like yourself to eat it up witho... #1.7.3

What can a film adaptation possibly add to this story?

Literally nothing. There is nothing to gain from this. Everything that needed to be said in the game, has been said. It is an exemplary display of the medium and doesn't need to be altered or changed in any way.

Hell, you might as well consider 'The Road' to be the film version of 'The Last of Us'. #10

I think if you strip the game down to its core, then yes, the similarities to Call of Duty are certainly there, it is made by Infinity Ward's finest of course. With that said, I think labeling it a clone is misguided.

The formula is still there. The fast pace, the blistering frame-rate, the action and fluidity of movement. I don't think this is the FPS to break the mould, but I do think this will take Call of Duty players away from that game. Titanfall is a game that... #8

Don't concern yourself too much with kills early on. I'd recommend testing out game modes like Hardpoint because it's more objective based. Racking up the kill count can be fun, but nothing beats the synergy of a good team that caps flags. #6.2

It's not going to reinvent the wheel for the multiplayer FPS, but I can see it definitely taking Call of Duty players away. Should be the next biggest thing. Free-flowing movement, accessible for newcomers but also requires a mastering of controls.

I've been playing the beta extensively and for games like this, visuals don't matter. They get the point across nicely but it's the action that knocks it out of the park. #34

It hurts that this game is so much fun because the lack of server support in Oceania is killing the experience for us Australians.

It'll be crippling if we don't see any Australian servers up at launch because 150+ ping simply doesn't cut it. What little I've played is very promising, but EA/Respawn will have a PR nightmare if they can't support the Australian crowd properly. #9

They've been distributing Xbox One codes out to PC players accidentally. I was absolutely ecstatic to see a Titanfall Beta email only to discover that it wasn't for PC.

Two very different kinds of emotions in the space of 10 seconds. #33

This is a forgiving mindset, but one that still doesn't justify exactly what they are doing here. Stand up for yourself as a gamer and as a consumer. It's okay to say that something isn't good enough because at the end of the day, constructive criticism is what drives a product to be better.

It doesn't matter what the series is. A $40, 2 hour Triple A title is inexcusable and vain. They're expecting fans to just eat that up "because it's MGS". #4.1

I used to replay PSOne demo discs because they offered so much.

If you ever got the Autumn demo release with 'Tomba!', it might as well have been the full game. #1.3.2

I maintain that video-game horror is one of the rawest, liveliest and best way to experience video-games. NOTHING compares to the immersion of a good horror game. A shame that the well has virtually dried up in recent years, but Outlast definitely has its moments and well worth a play.

I feel sorry for those that are frightened to try certain games out, you're missing out on feelings that can't be replicated in any other way :) #8

Love this kind of comparison. Gaming visuals nowadays don't really have the same kind of generational impact that they did back in the mid-90s or early millennium. Two of the games that absolutely shattered my mind were MGS2 and Final Fantasy VII before it. The opening cutscene of FFVII, seeing it for the first time, would have to be my most unforgettable gaming moment. Of course, seeing the E3 trailer for MGS2 is definitely up there as well. It's a feeling of "I can't believ... #35

The steam box was never intended to compete against the console market, it can't and it won't. It's designed as a middle-man to get console gamers to dip their feet into PC gaming without the overwhelming sense of "What the hell am I doing building this thing?".

Basically, it cuts out the hassle of designing a PC that fits your budget. With the steam box you have everything built to spec, at a price that won't rip your wallet apart like Alienware, wi... #5

People need to realise that many aspects of a game's multiplayer are tuned towards the best experience.

6v6 seems small, but in a game like Call of Duty, it's completely appropriate when you look at things like map design, weapon balance, spawn points etc.

If you want to play Battlefield 4 because of the scale, then all power to you, it's designed for that. Titanfall is geared towards fast-paced combat, close-quarters action and versatile movement... #16

Laughing at "FamilyGuy" being worried about a review potentially dragging the metacritic score down as if it hurts him personally.

Everyone should be allowed to play this game, thus, it gives the consumer an honest, rounded opinion of what might be in their interests.

I can't even tell you how little I care about the Gran Turismo series, it is simply not for me. I'm sure its a great game to the average car or driving enthusiast, but does it... #2.1.2
