Buying a X360 it was not worth the money, the only exclusive i really enjoyed was Fable 2.

Buying a Wii. Such a waste of money. I know I shouldn't say that because I loved Super Mario Galaxy 2, but that's it. Way too much money spent on something that gave me a week of fun. Not doing the same with Wii U unless Nintendo steps it up, but without trophies, with already limited third-party releases and performance just on par with current gen, I'm not about to repeat my mistake easily.

Unless they do Super Mario 128 and it's the most awesome platformer ever.


I'm guessing you don't like RPGs?


Actually, its my favorite genre. (I've already reserved Favorite game of 2013 to Ni No Kuni). But it took way too long for Nintendo to release the RPGs they had, and by that time it was too late for me, and I'm not rebuying another Wii because Nintendo were too slow to realize that you shouldn't hold back games like Last Story and Xenoblade from the market. Luckily I got Graces F on PS3.

Ahh, I thought the topic was this year for some reason.

There's a ton of good(not great) RPGs for Wii though.

Polite conversation should never include Politics, Religion or what constitutes an RPG.
Playing a game for it's story is like watching porn for it's story.

I didn't know s*** about PCs back then but I bought an off-the-shelf PC around the time PS3 was released. Suffice to say it cost about 3 times the amount and struggled to run GTA3. I got it to play GTA4 (lol)

Had to buy a PS3 as well if I wanted GTA4

Buying a PS3 and using it mostly for netflix.

Forgetting what gaming is about.

Not playing Wolverine Origins, Thor, Splatterhouse because they didn't directly appeal to me. Fun games, rather than being so picky looking for that next "amazing" game.

Which was odd as I was going outside of my comfort zone on the Wii and ended up finding better games then I have so far on the PS3 (for the most part, not on an individual level).

Outside of that AvP, Transformers: WFC and Alone in the Dark. All games I had expected more from that failed to hit the mark.

Diablo 3? Great game?

Does not compute.

Read again.

Talking about D3, the game was not that bad for me. The mistake for it was following its community. Oh gawd, it was like a cancer.

Another big mistake was replacing my old defunct 8800GT with a GT440. For real.
