As far as innovation goes, I would say that the n64/ps1/dreamcast (or maybe saturn, depending on how you look at it) generation was best. --- "Nothin' to see here. Nope. Nobody special. Ignore the mick with the bomb." Currently Playing: Too damn many things at the same bloody time... (25+)
Objectively, yes. Games have better stories, gameplay, interactivity, graphics, etc than ever before. In terms of how big a step it took from last gen, I would agree with the above poster --- Gamertag- MidgetRifleman
No. Games this generation have been toned down too much for casuals (With very few exceptions like Dark Souls), and there are way too many gritty brown generic military shooters. Not to mention scams like DRM and DLC (Especially day-one and on-disc DLC). --- Awww, isn't that cute? He thinks he can beat me!
Every system that has used optical media for the games has had some sort of copyright protection (AKA DRM). It's nothing new. --- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMKUUUvjjzo Fan of: Steelers(6-time Champions), Red Wings(11-time Champions)
