GTA V should not take GOTY. Would have to be a two horse race between Bioshock Infinite and The Last of Us. Everything else is just okay by comparison. #14

This comment section is embarrassing. The article is interesting in the sense that it offers a design perspective from a team that also produced a successful console. Nothing more, nothing less. I'm sure if they were to look at the original Xbox in retrospect, they'd take issue with its grotesque appearance.

If the article nitpicked less, it'd be deemed shallow by the vast majority of reactionary users here. Take it for what it is. AN OPINION. #33

Although both consoles in the long-term will stretch out and deliver, anyone who buys a console at launch is wasting their time and money. Even as an avid player of games on all platforms, you're obviously wasting time with the smallest launch line up for any two consoles ever. By the time March rolls around, you'll probably have a cheaper product and a more extensive library of games to use Playstation Plus or Xbox Live on as well. I'm sure Shadow Fall is a solid title, as well a... #57

Can people please read articles before buying straight into what they want to hear? That's not a ratio average for every Gamestop store, just his. He says the PS4 is beating it in most stores, which is probably true, but is he really anywhere near correct in his approximation? Probably not.

Let's not forget the source for this is ONE GAMESTOP MANAGER.

People on this website are too easily swayed by article titles and never actually read the content of... #120

Call of Duty 4 is a rare breed of game and a total classic. Always hoped new iterations of the game would surpass it. So much so that I stuck around with the multiplayer of every title up until MW3, when I knew it was done.

While now the title is overtly complex online, Cod4 had a minimalist and streamlined design that revolutionized online shooters. It's a joy to pick up and play, even now. The maps are just extraordinarily good when you think about it. A masterwork of d... #11

This is because Jim Sterling doesn't sugarcoat his reviews to coincide with the vast majority of pleb critics.

He legitimately enjoys most of the games in the series, but it doesn't mean he'll give them all a free pass. #7.1.2

The damage control in this comments section is embarrassing. #2.2.3

People need to realize that the lifespan of the console won't allow for games to maintain 60 fps after the first two years of life, maybe even less. Fair play to any developer that wishes to make it a target, and I'm sure a huge number of indie games will be a testament to that, but consoles are designed for longevity. Thus, the expectation is a playable framerate of 30 fps.

I'm sure both consoles will crank out impressive visuals for their lives, much like the PS... #23

The only thing that teaser had going for it was the 'Run the Jewels' track that they played. #16

There comes a point where you've legitimately purchased everything you'll ever want in steam sales and still haven't played 90% of those titles.

I, ladies and gentlemen, have reached this very sad peak. #9

In a lot of ways this is true. The PC no longer dominates the gaming market like it used to. The reason they don't produce games exclusively for PC nearly as much is because they mostly consist of niche titles with large fan bases (Blizzard or Valve).

Console generations are what cause the PC to roll over. Most of the technology has been readily available for years, but console cycles are beginning to slow down, hence, we've seen probably the smallest jump in the sp... #6

Oh sweet, I finally get to play on the monolith from 2001: a space odyssey. #24

8.5/10 is considered a troll review? Some of you guys need to gain perpsective here. #4

I've always thought the argument against the Call of Duty games was silly and it's further vindicated by the fact that great developers like using dynamic engines, regardless of how old they are. Look at Valve and Rockstar. Look at how little Crytek has achieved despite the fact that they frequently upgrade their engine. Yes, Call of Duty always looks the same, you know why? Because it appeals to a market that expects the experience to be a certain way, every single time. You think Ca... #36

On the same token, most of the posters on N4G are entirely humourless, rarely pick up on the sarcasm in a huge number of articles and are generally conservative mugs that adhere to a strict outline of what is good and what is bad without allowing for any "against-the-grain" opinions.

Two can play that game. #1.1.2

There isn't any real reason to hate him anymore, but people choose to stubbornly despise his success. He's the best player on the planet, pure and simple. After game 6 against the Celtics last year, I think people need to look at the kind of phenomenal player he is. Yes, I think he should have a cover and I'm a Blazers fan. #11

I think the misconception with 60fps is that it apparently doesn't offer the "cinematic" experience of 30fps.

This video is impressive, but it still doesn't translate to really playing the game at that clip. It is unmatched, poetry in motion when you get to feel that detail at it's very best. I'll always have a place for consoles, but when a game comes along with this much mouthwatering destruction, I like to appreciate it at 60fps. I sincerely hope... #12.1

DS3 needed to sell about 5 million units to be profitable for EA. I doubt it'll get there. A testament to EA's destruction of a potentially classic franchise. #1.1.1

I worked for EB Games last year (Australian GameStop contingent), and staff go to varying lengths to pre-sell (getting pre-orders and creating hype) the product to customers. The store I worked at was consistently in the top 12 in the company, a lot of that came from the number of pre-orders we made on Assassin's Creed 3. Our numbers were so good that each member of staff got a free copy of the Freedom edition from Ubisoft. We're not supposed to tell customers this, and I'm not su... #6.1.3
