You'll be playing last-gen games the day the 720 comes out... ?

If this is seriously the year the next-gen comes, why are so many companies releasing games so god damn close to the release of the next consoles? I'll still be plucking away at GTA V on my brand spankin new console, no need to buy new games.

I don't know, why did they do the same thing this gen, or last gen, or the gen before that, or the gen before that, etc, etc, etc?

Hell, GCN and PS2 games, even Dreamcast games in Japan, were still being released well into this gen.

I miss Nightmare Creatures. That was a fun and violent game.

Not the best games of the consoles generation...

We're literally getting the best games of last-gen in the months prior to the next-gen.

This hasn't happened before.

Considering it'll be at least several months after launch before I buy a new console....yes. I'll still be playing the current gen's games well into the next gen's lifetime.

They're still making more DS games than 3DS games.

Wait, we're getting Xbox, PS2, and GCN games a few months before the next Xbox and Playstation get released?

Also, best is subjective, and, since you obviously haven't played them, how can you already say they are the best games?

For all you know, these big AAA titles coming up could be the worst games ever released, just because they are big AAA titles does not mean they will be good, or better than anything already released.

You know what I meant. When we're IN the next-gen, these consoles will be last-gen. As if I have to explain this.

These big AAA titles are not going to be bad. It's pretty much a sure thing that they will be of quality. Either way, why would a company invest millions of dollars into a game that could get passed on for a console? Seems more likely that these next consoles are non-existent than these games will suck.
