Hating aside, isn't this a good time to be a gamer?

Here's a mindblowing fact, there are other consoles that also have other good games.


Yup, though to be fair it depending on the other consoles might be an issue too I mean Gen 7 fior me was 360, Wii, PS3. The PS3 was pretty much useless for me that gen, only had a few games, Wii came in second and my 360 is my main console.

Maybe.

I hate this obsession with graphics, especially as they relate to hyper-realism, that seems to be pervading the industry. I think many of these "next-gen" games look terrible and worse than most of the games from more than ten years ago that focused more on art design and style, imagination to overcome limitations that resulted in memorable and unique experiences. Take the Xbox One reveal, when they were talking about Call of Duty: Ghosts and were mentioning how they can now depict realistic arm hair and dirt under the nails -- why in the holy hell would anyone ever care about something like that?!?! Why was this a consideration?! Why is this supposed to be something to make us excited about the game?!
Ugh, anyway, I also hate how everything needs to be integrated and/or multiplayer (granted, in most games currently, you can ignore such things). And then there are all of those awful, anti-consumer practices introduced by the Xbox One, that you just pray don't become commonplace.

All that being said, I still can find many games that I thoroughly enjoy, and a decent amount of my favourite games ever were from the past few years.

So long as you haven't been an Xbox fan for the last generation or two, yeah.


It's like Microsoft is trying really hard to make people hate them this new gen or something.

Nope, still bitter about no KH3 on my WiiU plus having to still wait a year for Bayonetta :p

Oh really?! Well here's one for you too! I just bought that system four months ago expecting to be able to play stuff on that system. Then all this E3 did was confirm that the game drought for the shiny new piece of equipment I just bought is no where near over, and that if Nintendo can't even get a franchise that sold amazingly well on its handhelds to support WiiU. Clearly they are doing it wrong.

These things are like $300+ why wouldn't I be pissed if the games they promised a year ago still aren't coming anytime soon and I can't get my other favorite franchises on there either?

If you are a MS fan that aren't blind with their loyalty it's not a good time to be a gamer.

I was somewhat bitter pre-E3, as I always seem to be, but I have to agree.
The important thing is that it's not specifically getting that much worse unless you own a Vita, want free online for the PS4, or plan on getting a One. Sure, developers are still pushing the same "look at these polygons, so pretty" schlock but at least they're taking a few steps forwards.
