I feel guilty for missing the PS3 era. Won't let it happen again playstation! I'm sorry

XBLSkull3417d ago (Edited 3417d ago )

Don't feel bad, PS3 was not nearly as good as PS1/2. I owned tons of PS2 games but in a whole generation of PS3 I owned 4. Great media player though, I still use it since my PS4 is incapable.

PoSTedUP3416d ago

lol. XboxSkull is trying to convince himself of something, so maybe he can sleep well for one night in the last 6 years. i bet this gen has already crushed his little spirit. salty tears, yum.

ziggurcat3417d ago

there's still time... there are some fantastic games on PS3.

burza19823417d ago

starchild3417d ago

I've owned every Sony console minus the Vita (which I still might get). I've enjoyed my PS1, PS2, PSP, PS3 and PS4 consoles. Good memories.

Magicite3417d ago

@ XBLSkull You must be crazy! The PS3 had tons of Exclusives and JRPG's it felt like the PS1/PS2 gen to me.

That was a touching article.
Good job

I came into the game a bit late, sadly... I was an N64 kid growing up, and tried to move onto to GC, but when I got to play games like Ratchet & Clank, I was a PS gamer from then on out. I still played other consoles, but Playstation is, and always will, my primary place to game.

I was a sega kid originally , loved my sonics , toejam and earl , phantasy star 4 , mortal kombat but I still eventually got a Snes and experienced super metroid , super mario rpg and alot of other classics ( OH Blockbuster you were amazing at the time ).

then I was in 9th grade at a party and saw a few people in a room playing FF7 and I was like omg I have to have it and worked for a month or so at my first job to buy a Ps1 and FF7 and I've never turned my back on the PS Brand ..owned ps1 1 2 3 4 and psp , I still want a vita but not a necessity

Xenogears , the first 3 DMC , Metal solid , RE 1 2 3 , Zone of the enders , GTA .

Playstation 1 made gaming cool and started the movement into mainstream acceptability. On top of this every generation of PlayStation delivered countless amazing games.

I personally disregard any claim that the PS3 had no games, this was nothing more than a lie propogated by MS and its less enlightened fans. Like every generation the first year is relatively slow but once it hit its stride the PS3 delivered incredible exclusive after incredible exclusive.

As someone who considers himself as gamer above all else, I simply cannot imagine having not experienced the likes of the Uncharted series, The Last of Us, MGS4, Ni No Kuni, Ratchet & Clank and the dozens of other quality exclusives.

It would present such a gap in my gaming history, it would be like I had never experienced PacMan as a kid, Final Fantasy7 as a teen or Gears of War as an adult. I would hate to have no frame of reference to such excellent, and in some cases, important games.

I will always be grateful to Sony and their legacy of giving me so many great experiences over the years.


The prevalence of parrying: Why is it so popular?

Parrying has been creeping into more games, with almost every high-profile title of the last few years featuring it in some way.  Why?

phoenixwing93d ago (Edited 93d ago )

i understand the authors frustration i'm not the best at parrying in games. not that i can't complete a game that requires it but it is a definite harder thing for me than other kinds of techniques in games. which might be the main reason it's so heavily added in games nowadays. want to make your game challenging without having to do a lot of work? just add a parry boss. (what i mean by parry boss is a boss you have to beat by parrying such that their attacks will kill you otherwise)

Dudeson93d ago (Edited 93d ago )

I always think it's fine as long as such games also have the roll/dodge panic button. But I understand the will to parry, it seems so cinematic in a fight when you pull it off.

New Resident Evil 2 Remake Fixed Camera Mod Adds A Nostalgic Twist

A new mod brings the highly nostalgic fixed angles to the Resident Evil 2 remake, bringing the game closer to the original 1998 experience.


REmake vs. Resident Evil 2: Which Remake Template is Better?

REmake kept the original style adding new flavour and graphics, Resident Evil 2 is a complete modernisation. Which remake style is superior?

TheBrainZ124d ago

The GameCube remake was stunning for its time but the new modernisation efforts are breathing some much-needed life into the older games.

kevco33124d ago

I loved the GC remake back in 2000-whatever. But I tried replaying it recently and just couldn't deal with the door loading sequences.

Have I been spoilt by modern games? Probably.

Neonridr124d ago

tank controls just don't work in this day and age.

Babadook7123d ago

I think Tomb Raider still works but RE I'm not sure.

Neonridr123d ago

@Babadook7 - imagine an updated Resident Evil or Tomb Raider with tank controls? you can't walk and turn at the same time. It would be ridiculous to play.

__y2jb124d ago

Both are fantastic but the old style controls and the half way house attempt to modernize them in remake both feel extremely dated now. Taking away your preference for the various settings and characters, the recent remakes are objectively better games.

rippermcrip124d ago

I think anyone voting for REmake is simply doing it out of nostalgia. No way a new young gamer is going to pick that over the new ones. I couldn't even get my son to play the game for more than an hour.

KyRo124d ago

Nope. REmake has a totally different vibe, feel and tension that the newer remakes can't replicate due to the camera angle. Yes the original fixed camera was used for technical reason but at the same time, they created a feeling of dread not knowing what was around the corner. You simply don't get that with a third person camera as great as the third person RE games are.

FYouDad123d ago

Depends what sort of experience you're looking for. If you enjoy the old fixed camera OG style then REmake is to me the pinnacle of the form. Incredible atmosphere, visual style and a fantastic revision of Resident Evil 1 with additions that feel completely seamless. Resident Evil 2 Remake in an excellent update (especially running with the IMO vastly superior original RE2 soundtrack) with the benefits of modern design but I still prefer the original game.. it didn't "overwrite" that experience in my mind the way REmake felt like it became the definitive RE1 experience.
