  3. Did last gen raise the bar too high?
1 year ago#1
With the introduction of HD gaming and consoles that were used twice as long as previous gens, im suspecting devs got faaar more out of the machines than any 4-5 year gen would have yielded - kind of suspecting thats why this gen is off to a flying thud. No surprise the best game so far this gen for either system is Tomb Raider Remastered.
Thoughts?

It's good you have an opinion bro, but we aren't even 9 months in the current generation. Games aren't built over night. For all we know, the Ps4 and XB1 could last 7+ years before we get new gen consoles.

I don't think visuals will differentiate gens anymore moving forward. They have to come up with more unique gaming experiences. I think Quantum Break will be a type of game like that, 7th gen never had a Game-Tv show hybrid.

Are they still doing that, since they shut down the entertainment studios?

Alan Wake also had live-action mini-episodes.

What are they doing with Quantum Break?

Either way I'm psyched for it.

As mentioned, we aren't even a year in yet. Don't forget, the truly great games of last gen didn't show up until 2007, a full 2 years after the 360 launched.

Uhhh...no.

Oblivion and Dead Rising were both out within the first 8-9 months.
