Really though, Mass Effect 2.

Alright, I'll take the bait.

Devil May Cry "fans" make up the worst community in gaming. Why do they hate black hair so much?

DMC4's skill ceiling is higher than DMC3's. A lot higher even. Of course this just proves that depth isn't the only part of making a great action game as DMC3 is by far the better game.

Ignoring the "westernized" bit because many of those are western to begin with. As far as dumbed down and casualized, Ninja Gaiden 3.

Where is FF XIII?

I guess it has to be "Ninja Gaiden 3" due to hero mode... but I don't really think that's a bad thing either, for that particular series.

Metroid, Ys and Mega Man. Best of the best.

FFXII came out last gen, and that game plays itself too. Series already became dumbed down.

I said XIII. The one that came out This Gen. Not XII. Oh, and 12 didn't dumb down the series, especially seeing that it has one of the most complex battle systems in the series. XIII is the one that casualized everything and began Final Fantasys downward spiral. It was a much more streamlined experience, and lacked the depth of previous entries


It should be on your list, and in fact, I think it is the most casualized game of any series This Gen. Meh, whatever I guess
