It's not so much Hard Drives and Memory Cards themselves; its what they represent. Tge console gaming experience is being bogged down by all these things and, yeah, well they are overall benefits (as I pointed out), it's moments like these when I yearn for the days of just sticking the game in the machine and playing the damn thing.
So basically yeah, it's a totally nostalgia fest up in there.
Great review. I personally don't know if its my favorite game of the year (Max Payne 3 was pretty incredible), but it's certainly up there.
