Ok, that makes sense. I was interpreting peak not as when the series hit the mainstream, but when the series hit its high point with the inference that everything after that game has been worse.

7 was it's high point and everything after it was crap (with a few exceptions)

There we go. That's the kind of thing I was referring to. Thank you for posting this and being a good example.

PSI_IKE posted...Galaxy and Galaxy 2games are way wayyyyy better than 64. You're kidding yourself if you think otherwise
Except I'm just stating my opinion as well. I fail to see how anyone could like SM64 more than the Galaxy games, due to how bad SM64 is and how it contains no platforming at all.
I understand very well how opinions work. I dont think you do though, so keep wallowing in your hypocrisy
Stu, what are you doing?
Chrono Trigger is better than Final Fantasy XIII-2
people, blinded by nostalgia!
The only Vita games really worth getting: Gravity Rush & P4G

hmm crap? I loved 8. I liked it better than 7. I loved 6. I loved 4. I like 2 as well. I hated 9, didn't feel like or dislike for 10 and gave up after the release of X-2.
I am one of many that believe that final fantasy 7 only got high marks due to it being one of the first polygonal RPGS and becoming mainstream. They didn't do anything new with the story that hasn't happened before.
You could even say final fantasy 7 was the start of the downfall but every bit of that statement is opinion.
So far everything everyone said is truth... but only to those who said it. thats the beauty of opinions

"SMW is better than NSMBWiiU"
true, SMW didn't recycle SMB3's sprites, music, animations, etc., it did everything on its own, unlike NSMBU which recycles heavily from NSMBWii
"Super Metroid is better than Prime"
hmm..... now that's a pretty hard one....
"Ocarina of time is better than Skyward Sword'
what are you smoking? this one is definitely true, SUCKward Sword is dumbed down Zelda with horrible controls
"Final Fantasy Vii is better than FF XIII"
yeah.... now THAT one is false, FF7 is the worst movie ever, and I seriously doubt that will ever change
why even bring ****ty interactive movies into this? we're talking about video games here
"SM64 is better than Galaxy 2"
SM64 was revolutionary and built from the ground up, SMG2 is just leftover stages they didn't use in SMG1 and some horrible new stages (lolBattle Belt Galaxy), so yeah, SM64 wins this one
now, if you made this about SM64 vs SMG1, then you would have been on to something, but no, you had to go with SMG's inferior quick cash-in sequel, so you basically shot yourself in the foot
YOU make ME sick, graphics are better than they used to be? so what? gameplay and game design is what matters in the end
and if you think Nintendo under Iwata's leadership is giving us superior gameplay and game design than what Nintendo gave before he ruined everything, and have to call everyone who knows better a "nostalgia whore".....

sure you played SM64?
but anyway i will enlight you about how people can like SM64 better:
-less linear level design
-more movement options
-more divers level themes
If you feel scammed by a company but don't want to stop playing their games: Buy them used, it's the smart gamer's boycott method
As a person who has been a gamer for many years, I have seen the best and worst of both old and new.
I do feel that way too much importance is placed on how a game looks over how it plays.
Sure, nice graphic and lighting effects etc. can be great for immersion IF it has the gameplay to back those elements up.
I feel it all starts with gameplay. Story is important too of course, but even the worst story ever written can sometimes be overlooked if the product has solid gameplay.
Been playing some of my older games of late; Chrono Cross, FFVII, Ocarina of Time, as well as some newer releases. Xenoblade Chronicles, Borderlands 2, Skyrim.
And I am enjoying them all, because they all have solid gameplay.
We all have our reasons for enjoying the games we do. Beauty is where you find it.
