Fallout 3 for 40 dollars? Sounds like a nice bargain.

LevDog5650d ago

Yep grabbed COD WAW.. For 40 bucks.. Would have never bought it at 60..

AAACE55650d ago

That's one thing I always liked about Target over other stores. They don't like to keep stuff around forever. Once they put the clearance tag on something, it keeps getting cut in half until they sell it. Last gen I even bought a few Ps2, Xbox and GC games for as low as $3.24, and I mean quality games, not shovelware.

Itrguy0015650d ago

Target has never had any intresting games that caught my eye at 40 or hell even 20 bucks

Sitdown5650d ago

frequent there clearance section.

UnDone145650d ago

I picked up Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction for the PS3 last week for $14.99 new! I was shocked when I saw the price. Thanks Target! I'll be back to pick up Fallout 3.

Conquistador5650d ago (Edited 5650d ago )

Oh bargain behold! This 'Target', could it possibly be the famed city of gold I have been searching for? It may very well be with such fine treasures available. Now, with only my wits and my men I shall adventure forth into this unknown land, this 'Target,' and see what treasures await!

Conquistador5650d ago

Yes yes, simpleton. We shall see how 'lame' I am when your village is burning to the ground and I am awash in your treasures.

Shadow Man5650d ago

Bully for $24 at Wal-mart. Is a really fun game.

Looking Back At 2008, An Unbelievably Incredible Year Of Video Game Releases

Huzaifa from eXputer: "2008 was home to the likes of Call of Duty: World at War, Dead Space, GTA 4, Far Cry 2, Left 4 Dead, and many other hits, which is outright remarkable."

ChasterMies55d ago

Some of these low paid video game “news” writers weren’t born before 2007.

just_looken55d ago

Here here

Those that were around before 2000's i am sure are like me that think we entered a world of non readers or those that follow without question.

I can not wait to see fallout 3 a goty game even though it was about water with non content until you add the dlc/updates then you got the performance/crashing

CrimsonWing6956d ago

I don’t think anything can compare to 2023

lucasnooker56d ago

1998 - the best year in gaming! Metal gear solid, crash bandicoot 3, medievil, half life, ocarina of time, thief, tenchu, resident evil 2, Spyro, tomb raider 3, oddworld abes exodus, banjo kazooie.

It was a different breed of a gaming era. You’ll never understand what it was like back then. The aura of gaming, it was different!

KyRo56d ago (Edited 56d ago )

I second this. Gaming was a lot more varied and fun than it is today. I'm 35 so getting on compared to some here but I got to see all the changes from NES up to now but I've never felt so disappointed in any generation than I have this current gen. I was expecting more from this generation rather than prettier versions of games that came before it. Game mechanics have become so refined that alot of games feel the same and has done for a while now.

Maybe it's time to have a break for a while. I love gaming but I don't feel I get much fun in the traditional sense out of it anymore.

CrimsonWing6956d ago (Edited 56d ago )

Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil 2, Abe’s Exodus, and Ocarina of Time are the only things from that list that I liked.

Here’s the 2023 game releases that I personally liked… and big releases that I didn’t care for:

- Dead Space Remake
- Wo Long Dynatsy
- Resident Evil 4 Remake
- Diablo 4
- Fire Emblem Engage
- Hogwarts Legcay
- Street Fighter 6
- Hi-Fi Rush
- Like a Dragon: Ishin
- Octopath Traveler 2
- Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters
- Final Fanatsy XVI (actually ended up not liking this, but it was still a big deal release)
- Baldur’s Gate 3
- Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon
- Lies of P
- Mortal Kombat 1
- Marvel’s Spider-Man 2
- Starfield (Ended up hating this one, but big release)
- Super Mario Bros. Wonder
- Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom (I’m an old-school Zelda fan, but didn’t really enjoy this game)
- Alan Wake 2

I mean, honestly I’ve never seen a year of major IP releases like that, ever.

Profchaos56d ago (Edited 56d ago )

Isn't it just a generational thing realistically.

I've been gaming since way back and I some of my favourite games go as far back as the late 80s for me each generation has a year or two of game changing releases one after another before an inevitable dry spell.

I kind of agree gaming had a different feel games hit different because we didn't have the internet nothing got spoiled and you really had to put in the effort to beat a puzzle which could set entire groups of people looking for a solution. But most importantly games were experimental and not as cookie cutter as today even basics like controls were not universal today r2 is shoot l2 is ads garunteed you can't deviate from that in a shooter back then it could of been square, R1 or R1 and circle nothing was standard.

But as time moves on a new generation picks up their controller they are going to be interested in different things that PS1 demo disc with the t Rex blew our primitive 16 bit brains back on launch but to kids today it's laughable.
The new gen of kids coming into to hobby seem to value different things to us there seems to be a huge focus on online play, streamers, gaming personalities, and social experiences, convience of digital downloads. To me I value none of that but that's ok like my parents not liking the band's I would listen to its just the natural cycle.

Gameseeker_Frampt55d ago

Just about every year in the 7th generation was great and something we most likely won't experience again.

2009 for example had Assassin's Creed 2, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Dragon Age: Origins, Uncharted 2, Halo 3: ODST, Killzone 2, Borderlands, Bayonetta, and Demon's Souls to name a few.

just_looken55d ago

It still amazes me we got over 7 rockstar games ps2/ps3 but 3 for the ps3/ps4/ps5

Dragon age 1-3 and mass effect 1-3 in 7ish years what a generation.

Well, he definitely got his money’s worth.

Abnor_Mal350d ago

Same as Shirley Curry playing Skyrim for years. In the next Elders Scrolls game they should have her in the game as some form of npc.

andy85350d ago

She is, I read she will be a character. Not a dig in any form but I hope she's alive when it releases

Relientk77350d ago

That's over 7,000 hours geez. What crazy stats

nitus10350d ago

Actually it is very easy to up the number of hours you have been playing a game. Basically all you need to do (assuming you have a PS4 or 5) is to place the console into stand-by without exiting the game, so if you do this a one hour gameplay actually becomes a 24 gameplay or longer.

boing1350d ago

What? So the game is still runinng when you put it to sleep? What?

EvertonFC350d ago

It's actually sad not an achievement but hey we need the full story details.
