Did last gen raise the bar too high?

#1Gunvalkyrie2Posted 7/23/2014 9:54:10 PM
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?

Even beyond visuals, this gen is feeing bland and uninspired...so far...DLC runs wild and pew pew feels like the order of the day.

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.
