I Won't Be Buying Any Next Gen Console

I've been playing video games as long as I can remember. Some of my earliest memories include Street Fighter II, Super Mario World, Super Punch-Out!!, Pokemon Blue and Sonic the Hedgehog. I still play these games much more often than my Xbox 360. I hate where video games have gone. In much the same way every movie wants to be a Michael bay explosion-fest, every game now wants to be COD. It's horrible if you ask me. So many games hype up their Frostbite 2 engines and end up being just boring and unoriginal when you actually play them. The last game time I bought anything new was over a year ago, and both of those have been traded in since. I love some games like Mass Effect, The Witcher, Saints Row, Super Mario Galaxy, Portal, Phoenix Wright, games with creativity and substance. But I hope I'm not the only one that feels like the industry as a whole has turned into one big cash cow trying to one-up eachother with the latest graphics and explosions, not caring at all for actual gameplay or experience, knowing people (especially my generation and under) will eat it up because it's "cool", whether they enjoy the games or not.

i wish resident evil would back to what it use to be

You mean Survival Horror? The subgenre it basically created? Yeah, that'd be pretty sweet. I'd love to play another B-Grade Horror movie Resident Evil, though I doubt I will unless it's under a different title by someone totally different.

Well, there are a lot of substandard shooters on the 360 and shovelware on the Wii, but I don't think the industry as a whole is doomed. We still have Valve, Microsoft, and Nintendo, as well as thousands of indie devs to make creative, original, fun games far into the future.

True, but it's a rare exception when games like that get noticed. And Nintendo is rehashing old formulas too, they're just of more fun games lol

Lol, well, I don't mind it. Super Mario Galaxy reminds me of Super Mario 64, and I loved that game.

I loved Galaxy and Sunshine. I hoenstly didn't love 64, though I did love games like Banjo-Kazooie, which is commonly considered basically the same thing (though it's clearly not). What I mean is all the New Super Mario Bros Wii U 3d Extended Director's Cut Version 5.0 Deluxe lol.

Ohhh, I see. Yeah, I didn't buy New Super Mario Bros. 2 or New Super Mario Bros. U. It's just the same game. I didn't buy the Wii one either (such long titles lol) since I already played the DS one. Sunshine was great, though I liked Galaxy a lot more, if only for its atmosphere (also part of why Cave Story is so great).
