Things I’ll remember about this generation (but wish I could forget)

PS4 Attitude: "This generation has undoubtedly been great for gaming, but with day 1 patches to download and online passes to activate, there have also been lots of hoops to jump through before you even get to play a game. Below are four innovations I’ll remember from this generation, but that I hope won’t follow us into the next… even though they probably will."

I got Hitman for free through PS+. I want to play it but it's 13GB! My little 150GB hard drive has no room.

13GB is way too big for current gen.

Man up and get a 1TB hdd dude!!

I agree with this article wholeheartedly. Sequel-itis is another thing I hope doesn't make up the majority of games being released.

MasterCornholio1822d ago

For me it would be ( in no particular order)

1. Microsoft shift to casuals with Kinect
2. RROD scandal
3. PSN Hack
4. Microsoft's horrible E3 with the half naked jungle people and the poor audience wearing ponchos.
5. Ninja Theory destroying Dantes image
6. The trial against the hacker who hacked the PS3.
7. Capcom turning Resident Evil into an action fest.
8. Capcom exploiting DLC with fighting games for example.
9. Silent hill getting turned into an action fest.

That's about it for me.

Nexus 7 2013

Well said man I agree with you with all of them.

Summons751822d ago

Only one I kinda disagree with is the Cirque du Soleil, they are an amazing show no matter where they are at. However being at E3 for Kinect was a little strange...still a good show and the panchos held incorporate the audience giving it a visual flare.

Otherwise I agree, add Ylod to the RROD scandal

1. The downfall of my favourite franchises:
Resident Evil
Silent Hill
Final Fantasy

2. Online passes
3. Season Passes
4. Microtransactions
5. Japan deciding we don't like their games anymore so westernising them or not localising their games.
6. Sat watching an Installation screen for hours.
7. Metro Last scavenger hunt "the way it was meant to be played" for $$$
8. Buying all of my PS1/PS2 games again because Sony decided against backwards compatibility.
9. The decline in survival horror games.
10. Horror games being turned into action games
11. EA, CAPCOM and Activision.
12. Skyrim on PS3
13. Metacritic score becoming the be all and end all.
14. Military shooters overload.
15. Same voice actors being used in most games, Troy Baker, Steve Blum, Nolan North.
16. Developers being shut down because of mismanagement and over spending.
17. The PS3 599 US dollars launch.
18. The Xbox One TV TV sports TV no consumer rights launch.
19. Overpriced digital games
20. People that buy overpriced digital games
21. Biased reviews and poor journalism.

An probably many more I can't think of right now :p

FanboysAreGimps1822d ago

One thing I will remember this generation is the rise of the angry nerd rage fanboys that developed on the internet, and I mean that on all sides regardless of system.

My 1st jaw drop moment I will always remember was seeing the graphics on Fight Night Round 3 on the Xbox..... I was gobsmacked

sprinterboy1822d ago

Leaving my ps3 in my living room when re plastering walls, didn't end nice for the blu Ray drive lol and disappointed with gta4 ( just my opinion) other than that it's been a great gen

strickers1822d ago

GTA 4 was the weakest of the series. 5 may be the best. Previously SA was my favourite. VC was just too flat, geographically.

Matt6661822d ago (Edited 1822d ago )

VC was great and still is great.
