    Even if nintendo released a system at the same level as either of them it would still completely fail. There is only so much room for that kind of system in the market. Nintendo simply found it's own place in the market when they flopped because they where trying to keep up with the game cube being that last system they tried with.

    That's nice but this saying does not always apply to a real world.

    A "delayed game" doesn't necessarily mean it's going to be eventually good.
    As for bad game is bad forever...well sometimes at first a game can be bad,
    but when given some time and appreciation you can look past those bad things and discover a good game.

    Also, what does "good" means anyway.

    Yeah, unless you're a big fan and decide to create one for yourself cause they don't want to. (Another metroid 2 remake, Streets or rage remake...... )

    If nothing else, Andromeda brought me hours of laughs and good times for all the wrong reasons. I'd hate to see the franchise buried because of EA's awful rush job practices. As for Elder Scrolls, I'm hoping they'll finally move on from the creation engine or build a new creation engine from the ground-up. That thing has been outdated since Skyrim. Also Bethesda is becoming more EA like all the time, so that's concerning. But at least we have Obsidian's take on a TES-type game coming up with Avowed.

    I feel I should mention command & conquer and (especially) Sim city here.

    C&C is the franchise that was proof that EA sucks. Red alert 3 jumped the shark, c&c 4 did away with base building (which is like Mario games doing away with jumping)... And that mobile game? *shivers*
    It took huge amount of sceptism, but the new remake of the original is actually, genuinely good. It's as if EA can't even properly fit in the narrative of being evil.

    Sim city just ruined their launch date. The sad part is that there might have been a good game underneath, but that's like saying that that date that doesn't show up might be great: sc-fans would probably still be sobbing about the no-show, hoping that next time they'd get a good time with Sim city reboot 2... If the date's younger sister didn't happen to show up and scored on all fields. Her name? City skylights.

    Yeah... You can skip the 'might have potentially' on fallout.
    Don't get me wrong : I know the later games have fans. My best friend plays one (4 or 76...i forgot). But they're just different games that happen to have the same name,that's all. For the fallout vibe, I just play wasteland 2 or underrail.

    Oi - I love Super Paper Mario! Its gameplay is the best out of all the Paper Mario games, due to minimising the frustrating Action Command system, all but removing the tedious, slow, and dreadful Peach interludes, and having the best worlds and characters. It also lacks the stupid level-up system the first two games had, in which I was always needing more HP (because I sucked at blocking) and more BP at the same time, but couldn't do that due to only being able to increase one stat per level-up; in Super, not only are BP and FP completely gone, but HP is nowhere near as relevant due to being able to move out of the way of attacks.

    We needed more Super Paper Mario, in my honest opinion.

    Oh, and where's Pokemon Sword/Shield? The utter lack of content, along with the mandatory Exp. Share mechanic, the lack of exploration, the woeful animations, and the godawful Dynamax/Gigantamax and Max Raid systems completely killed the series, since it clearly displayed Game Freak's lack of passion and care; since this is the second, consecutive pair of games to have such a large list of missing content and mechanics (the first being the abysmal Let's Go!), it suggests future games will also not have all 893+ Pokemon - despite being on the much more powerful Switch, when the DS could hold 649 species and the 3DS, 807. Plus all those alternate forms. Oh, and there were no removed moves prior to the Switch, either, or Abilities.
    Lastly, the stupid nerfs need to stop; they already unnecessarily weakened the Steel-type, and special moves, and Gale Wings, and the damage bonuses -ate and -ize Abilities gave, and now the damage bonuses Terrains give, and brought back the tedium and inanity of breakable TMs (except now they're "TRs"), and for the first time ever reduced a Pokemon's base stats (Aegislash), and made King's Shield only decrease an attacker's Attack by one stage instead of two. NO MORE, PLEASE!

    Bethesda's in a pickle because they've been milking the same engine since Morrowind. If they use it again for TES VI, not only will it be buggy as all hell, it'll look like shit compared to every other next-gen game. Developing a new engine from the ground up is gonna take so much time and money that they might just have to give in and use somebody else's.

    It pretty debatable if changing is good or bad. Staying true to status quo may lead a franchise to dead end. Pokemon is a great example of this. Start out as a simple monster collecting JPRG, it turn itself into one of the biggest franchise on earth. But despite keep trying to bring new element with each generation, the game fail to evolve it outdated gameplay that exist since the 90'. The result is fan frustrated with the same old formula after 4 whole generation of repeated the same old thing and it just took one mistake for fan to go on riot.

    Then again we have thing like Megaman where people just wish the game exist even if it just the same old recipe.

    I wouldnt say its a debatable (i ean you can debate it but what i mean is...) in sense that if a franchise is established, core elements and what makes it what it is should NOT be changed EVER, thats not debatable imo. Cause if you DO change it, than its not that game anymore, just a game starring that character (if character it self is not also changed seriously).

    As for game it self, ofc its debatable, and for example as much as i love new tomb raider games, they are nothing like tomb raider i really love. I dont feel the same way, and my desire for the same feeling that i look in tomb raider while playing is not there. Its good though, just not the tomb raider i know..and i know tomb raider. Objectively speaking i mean. Lara croft is starring ofc, you have all superfacial visual elements but they...killed the her spirit so to say.
    Imagine it like a ghost in the shell (not an anime). Shell is tomb raider but the ghost is missing, not the same person, just looks like it. Thats what new tomb raider games are imo. Thats not a bad thing per se, just not a good tomb raider game since series is already established and solidified thats why i said its not debatable, its pretty much know fact what TR is. If you followed lara adventures from very beginning and mindset of creators youd know what i mean.


    I must mentioned the new movie based on a new TR game (with that flat chest girl) the thing i noticed when i watched the whole movie is that its to damn realistic. at the end lara is saving the world from bio terorists lol.
    WTF, Ethan hunt?! LoL i mean even mission impossibe had some unrealistic scenes mre or less even thought its based on more realistic themes, but TR was never about realistic stuff...i mean in games and Angelina Jolie movies super nartural forces and skeletons attack lara and she actually trawel and explore and there is mistery and everything.... but new TR games she is regular rich girl powered by neo-feministic powers and saving world in realistic fashion from bio terorists in japanese island. Thats perhaps cool mivie to some people but thats not a tomb raider.


    Now you can change a franchise, but never take its "soul" out, is my point.

    Wow, what a wall of text, you seem to be a real dedicated player !^_^

    I fondly agree with what you said. I never could get into the new TR, something was missing, lacking, felt fake. Maybe realism and UTTER VIOLENCE pulls me off, I liked the exploring/survival sections, but over the top and gory bow/pickaxe fights, sheesh.

    Mystery, discovery, DIFFICULTY of the first games, it felt different, not a passive cinematography like nowadays. You can't help it, 3D and exploration was new back then, do you remember the first time you saw the T-REX in the jungle, or the subterranean sphynx ? I do, 'cause it was fresh and new.

    Standardisation my friend, it is even the very essence of Dante's inferno. :evil:
    Passionate gamers, the core audience of GBATEMP if I'm not mistaken, the thrill they seek today, can only be found in niche.

    Just to make it revive, with just a bit more of stuttering. At least, we can still play openRA ! But no fans, only EA could have done that :

    rip kingdom hearts. Wow was KH3 really bad. graphics bad. Gameplay bad. Story bad. Content bad. Coherence bad. combat bad. Replayability bad. voice acting bad. mini games bad. level design bad. did i forget to say the graphics were bad too? ps2 level.

    there was also one part where they made you play a terribly boring sledding mini game to get the last weapon too.

    sadly the only thing i did enjoy was the gummi ship boss battles.

    Pokémon series is not canon after Gen 1 and 2.
    That as from someone who has a lot of favorite pokemon from =gens that came after.

    I pick and choose what I accept. I like Gen 1 and 2, some newer Pokémon and some newer regions.

    Dead Space... 2 amazing entries I still play followed by microtransaction filled 2 player action game. Franchise killed. I still long for a return to survival horror for it but hay it's EA we are talking about. Hell just give me remastered versions of the first 2 games. Every E3 I sat through so much sports shit (and I like sports games) to see if someone at EA finally woke up and thought "Dead Space. A story driven single player horror game... That's what we need!"
