What happened to those good old fashioned family values on which we used to rely?

TropicalFreeze or Murderstorm, who is the better troll?
better question, which one will get banned first?


Neither. Trolls don't get banned unless they're on a Sony board.
My sig will never happen, but it would be awesome if it did.

I blame Canada.
Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them, you're a mile away and have their shoes.

Probably since the PS2's success. Gaming became something marketed to everyone. Good or bad, that changes the focus.
Yes, I answered seriously in this horrible topic.
I would like to thank 40Dribylf, for strengthening my stance on eugenics.

Considering the Wii U has decent first-party titles (( Wii Party U, Mario, more Mario, DKTF, and more )), I'd have to agree. If I got a PS4 the only disk-based game I'd look into for it is Knack. :|

And no the X1. Titanfall is just CoD with mecha.
I have a Wii U. WEEEEEEE

I don't know. I didn't really feel like things changed until the PS3/Wii/360.

At that point, there seemed to be more and more of a focus on graphics over gameplay and essentially treating games like movies (both in regards to how their presented and in their ridiculous budget) and that whole focus has only gotten worse now.
It's a secret to everybody.
