I want to add some honorable mentions:
Metal Gear Solid
Street Fighter Alpha 3 (I know 2 is on the list but still)
Well that either means I need to invest in motion sickness pills or not get involved with the VR hype train. I'm one of the rare few that 60+FPS in the majority of games makes me sick bad.
I can't tell if this is satire or the author is whining about not being able to go rogue on their own terms.
Good. I'd rather players mind their own business so when harder experiences are released instead of "you shot me in the DZ I'm not helping you" it's "wanna join?"
This is one game that kept me into RPGs even today. Too bad it's hard to find RPGs this good with the amount of work was put into this classic.
"OMG the review says 4/10, I'm sending it back!" That's the new thing currently that I'm seeing these days.
I'm having fun with the game even though I've ran into a few issues and my first crash.
I wouldn't mind BC with downloaded games so I don't have to debate purchasing a previous console to play some older digital titles.
Other than that I wouldn't be surprised if Sony has something planned just waiting until the right moment to bring it up.
"Lets judge how good a game is by the trophy/achievement list!" /s
What's next? "I refuse to buy games that release on Tuesday because I work during the week and it's unacceptable that I have to wait until the weekend to play it which gives the community extra days to lean and play the game. I won't buy it unless I get to dictate when it releases."
What's with the comparisons between Destiny and The Division? They're different games. If The Division ends up being all hype I'll leave it like I did Destiny.
I preferred Final Fight and Streets of Rage 2. But I did enjoy what few rounds of Die Hard Arcade I was able to play.
I'll add Street Fighter Alpha series. Most of the other games were already mentioned in earlier posts.
I say 0 announcement unless at least 80% of all bugs/glitches/exploits/crashes are fixed for offline modes. If it means 4+ years per game so be it; at least we'll know a game is worth playing without extensive headaches.
I agree with this piece 100%. I've been seeing a trend with a lot of gaming companies releasing garbage now and "patch later" which in turn hurts the confidence of the company over time. Problem is impatient fans will still buy day 1 because it's their favorite publisher or game series.
With the release date idea I like how Bethesda handled Fallout 4; nothing until it was complete enough to talk about, with a solid release date that wasn't delayed....
I like that idea. Too bad the dudebros won't.
My group and I decided to hunt NPCs only and extract when we know the player base is either low at the time or find extractions where no one is occupying.
What really irritates me is the ones who kill other players then complain because they had "nothing" on them. There's times where we had a couple of us with junk intentionally just so they take the bait while the rest of us get to extract the good items.
I have a feeling though if this idea...
The idea behind Dark Zone isn't my problem, it's the trolling and the player base that makes it not worth the headache. A few of us decided it's best to avoid any player contact, and if needed we will sit and wait until extraction zones are safe enough for us to get what we need out.
I agree with Cowbell. From personal experience the majority of the trolls in Dark Zones are either kids (17 and younger) or people who suck so bad at killing the AI all they can do is kill other players either during extraction or after some firefight. During the open beta I found an M1A that I had in the closed beta, and some a--hole killed me, took it, and then sent me a psn message saying "rekt" or something along those lines.
What we did instead was fight NP...
I remember when pre ordering was to guarantee a copy of a game that was in high demand. Now it's used as a tool to gauge how many people are willing to buy a beta. After The Division I'm no longer pre ordering or even buying day one. I'll wait it out.
I'm surprised as well. I was expecting maybe fights from characters who are planned on entering in the future to at least have an idea how the story mode should be. Hell I can play Alpha 3, or 3 and get far more from the story modes than this. Due to school I was only able to achieve 5 story completions so far which took less than 45 minutes.
Street Fighter Alpha 3 is my all time favorite game next to the arcade version of Tekken Tag Tournament in 1999. If a game like that was to release today here's the breakdown:
15 characters at launch
5 per 3 months depending on "feedback" at $5.99
Extra modes as "asked by the fans"
I bought SF5 with the confidence Capcom would at least cater to the fighting community - WRONG! It's hard to take Capcom seriously aft...
Final Fantasy 11 is proof cross platform can exist as long as companies are willing to work together. With that said, companies need to at least have some sort of neutral ground so gamers can play together and meet new friends with positive experiences. This segregation of online services needs to end.
