    wouldn't say it is that much a myth, i recall a few years back when driv3r was in the making and everyone was commenting about how good it looked for its time, just happened to play like utter shit from what i recall.

    Again, there are exceptions, and I've never really played or heard much of Driver as a series anyway.

    But some of the best games this generation are also some of the best games graphically this generation. It's not just a coincidence. People seem to make it out that a game with great graphics can't be a great game. People only developed this attitude when Nintendo produced an underpowered console and some of their diehards wanted to portray themselves as "purist gamers" by bashing its highly advanced competitors for being "graphics whores".

    But never in my life have I heard someone say "The game plays poorly, but I liked it for the graphics" or "I'm buying Game X because the graphics look great".

    i agree there are exceptions, and i do agree that good looking graphics shouldnt equal bad gameplay, just one of the more random examples i could think of for good looks, bad game. As for the idea of it being around since the Wii, i have seen the good graphics, bad gameplay argument a long time before the Wii was ever about. For the "I'm buying Game X because the graphics look great" i've known a few people who the years who have bought into a game for the graphics only to bitch about it when they play it

    Hey, what's up.

    It's rare that every gamer is excited for a console release.

    I mean I love E3 but I don't bother watching conferences that I'm not interested in. I watched I think the Ubisoft and Sony conference last year, although that was mainly because my school schedule made me miss the other ones (Nintendo and Microsoft).

    Errrh.... 75% of how many people?? missing a figure here.....

    I loved nintendo systems and their games from day one, icon sider myself hardcore.
    But by now I'm also a father and have my own kids...so what make me that then...?

    You won't stay forever young, you know. Do not forget your roots.
    I ca'nt imagine a life without video games, mainly on Nintendo.
    As a matter a fact, I can get more than my fix on Wii if it would come down to harder/ hardcore games.
    But to be honest NO game today is hardcore since NES and SNES era.

    Try Ninja gaiden on NES and beat it.
    Any Konami game, Megaman etc. etc. that is hardcore imho.

    But I agree, games should look good but more importantly the graphics should fit the game. In term of story and gameplay.
    atmosphere is important, and so is the soundtrack of a game.immersion....big part is also how you can control a game.
    When I put my ps3 controller in my kids hands, they start to waggle with it...motion controls in that sense just works.
    pointing at the screen is in my opinion a great feature, sometimes I wised my tv remote had that function.
    it's VERY natural....

    I have, it's not my type of game but it does have solid multiplayer and an interesting single player, plus some great zombie modes.

    Remarkable at the time of release but it doesn't hold up anymore. It's been outclassed by its successors like most any game series is.

    The only reason I am not interested with it is because the thing is still not on par with a ps3 and 360. It should have been released five years ago with the ps3 and 360. Why get this when the PS4 and whatever the next xbox is gonna be called are like 1 or 2 years away from it?

    It's clear that Nintendo are always gonna be one step behind everyone else at this point.
     
  15. It is not just on par, goddamn it. It's more powerful. Why do you guys keep saying this?

    Funny, because there are a lot of people who still say it's one of the best games ever made.
    Stop acting like your opinion is the only one that matters.

    It's all your opinion. You can't say they're wrong for liking a game.
    But of course, this place is full of idiots. Say what you will, then.

    I agree completely. I recently picked up a 3DS, and while it does have a better library than the Vita, i feel like the Nintendo EShop leaves a lot to be desired. There are a few good virtual console ports
    like the older mario games, Sonic & so on, but where are the titles that defined the GB/GBA? I feel like I've been waiting forever for nintendo to re-release Pokemon Red/Blue on VC of all things, not to mention
    Golden Sun and other RPG's. Nintendo's store is a joke compared to PSN's selections... I hope it gets better.
