Do you feel bad for kids that grew up on this gen of gaming?

Quote:i feel more sorry for the kids that watch todays cartoons.

also most of the remakes that have been made are more less disrespecful to the originals.


Today's cartoons a garbage compared to the ones I grew up on. Although my elders would say the same, I guess its just a never ending cycle.

Only those of bad parents. Because instead of being babysat by Mortal Kombat and Duke Nukem, they're babysat by XBL crapchatter on CoD and GTA.

I don't feel bad for them so much as they disgust me. A majority of them are whiny brats.

And not just gaming. Pretty much everything makes these kids whine.

Definitely, the very fact someone can call Skyrim or <insert random generic fps> a good game... pathetic.

I mean, Morrowind is still a better Elder Scrolls game, and Unreal Tournament and System Shock 2 are still better fps games. Publishers are just taking advantage of the fact that this gen is full of new people (what with video games suddenly going mainstream) and are mass-producing cookie cutter games that fail to improve on what the previous generations accomplished.

This gen feels like I am playing games from 10 years ago, but toned down for dumb people.

Never knowing the death of a console and I mean the outright cancellation of the manufacturing with the company stepping out of the gaming/console arena... There will be some major butthurt around these boards from the "entitled brats" when that happens next.

No TC...I do not. One day, they will view the 360 as the best gaming system ever and view gaming with nostalgia eyes just as we do about previous gens.

I agree

So that somehow means that it is impossible for a game that isn't as good to still be good?

Just because older games might be better (how much of this is nostalgia?) does not mean newer games aren't good.

Of course, in a world of idiots that think games that get review scores of 8/10 are mediocre, and 7/10 means it is a pile of steaming ****, not to mention the "cool to hate" mentality that is rampant, I'm not really surprised you have to **** on other people's opinions on what is and isn't a good game.

I do.

007 Goldeneye >>>>>>> COD & Halo

No, because they'll look at Halo the same way you look at Goldeneye.

I do...there was so much creativity before this gen...whole genres have been missing or non existent for the whole gen 7-8+ years!

mech assault...gone

tactical shooters gone

and all we have is sequel mania...rehashes of the same games or new games with the rehash elements included
