Yesterday, I made a post, on Fuse, about how I have been playing Persona 4 Golden, for the PS VITA, more than any of my console based games and was wondering why I could not find myself to get that much into a game that is of this current generation of games. After making that post I decided to do a little brainstorming on why Persona 4 Golden is better than any of our current generation of games and what it lacked, or could have made it better.
First thing that came straight to mind was the concept of time. As everyone who has played any Persona Game or pretty much any Shin Megami Tensei games for that matter should know that they have a heavy empathis on time. I started to think about games of this generation again and what games put to use time in a actual manner that would make the player feel more inclined to do more in a game day, and ,sadly, I couldn't think of one. I challenge you to name one game, of this generation, for me that take in the concept of time and make you have so long to complete one task while having to complete the main task before a set game date. Some of the first few games that came to mind that used any time of this generation was Skyrim, you can't do anything at certain times of day, sure, but you can also not do anything and the land of Skyrim will be safe. So in actualality here, you are the real threat to the land of Skyrim because you decided to tigger a flag that caused the game to proceed? Give it some thought and serious consideration, how much did you feel you had to actually get done in skyrim, or any other game of this geretation for the matter, to go on playing.
The next concept that came to my mind was story. How many games out there have a story that makes you want to learn more. Unfortunately this gaming generation is held back by the inability to present a decent story mostly thanks to deadlines on the publishers side and hopes that the pretty graphics will allow them to make sales. I can definately name games that have suceeded in the current generation that have done this successfully, but the ratio of games that I can think of that can to games that I can of that can are sadly much less then 1:2, or 33%. Honestly I don't give a care if a developer holds back a game to add more to it, but it would be great if they could work more on the story, rather then the gameplay and visuals themselves.
Finally, for today, is combat. Not to many games have a combat system that excites me anymore. A game with a good combat system is usually just that, good. There are to many games that hold back the potential to create a challenge anymore out of fear that the consumer may not want to play it because it's to difficult to play. I am all fine with the easy stuff as long as they succeed with a story, but by taking out the challenges they're are also throwing a handful of gamers on a shelf themsleves. Isn't this what difficulty settings are for? Anyways, to many games have become to focused on the presentation of the battle system itself then the thrill. Push one button hundrends of different actions are then executed. By the push of a button. "That was easy!"
In sumarry, games seem to no longer be able to put together what is needed. We usually get parts without the rest. Graphics without the story. Gameplay without the graphics (rather have this one myself). Story without the gameplay. hopefully you get the point right now. The beginning of this blog, with the concept of time, was also not something that I think is something that makes a game but just adds to the playability and wish was put into more games.
I've done a number of looks at the Final Fantasy Versus XIII game which was announce at E3 in 2006. It now being the year 2011, a 5 year span since it's first appeared, the game has still been barely talked about by the developers. Final Fantasy Versus XIII was known as a game thought to only exist in trailers because of the lack of information given and without any actually game play appearing in any of the trailers until January 18th, I believe, when Square-Enix decided to show a new trailer at the 1st Production Premier. Well actually our first look at actually game play [starts at 0:48] was a bit earlier at the Tokyo Game Show, but the footage was slowed and not really released publicly.
From Here On In Is Just Spectulation and Thoughts!
...with some facts.
After the release of the 2011 trailer many have much thought about this game again. Currently only to be released on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system there have been virtually no signs of the game to be released for the XBOX 360. In my personal opinion, I own all current generations systems, I think that it would be best for the game to actually not become mutiplatform because I think it could cause more harm then good. According to rumors the Director for the Versus project himself does not wish for the game to go to the 360 as well.
In Final Fantasy Versus XIII you follow the tales of a lone prince named Nocitis (Full name: Noctis Lucis Caelum). Versus XIII takes place in various Kingdoms, Cities, and Towns, each quite large according to Nomura. Apparently Noctis leaves his Kingdom after being chased out by an invading Kingdom. While away he think of things on how to obtain revenge and to get back the Crystal which was stolen. Though it is unclear how the female character, Stella, and Noctis are related in the game. They seem to be people with extraordinary powers granted to them by a light that only they can see.
While Noctis on the run, Noctis's Father seems to be in a argument with an older white robed person, different then the one that confronted Noctis in the previous trailer. I'm assuming that this character is from the invading Kingdom and wants Noctis's father to surrender to him. The King declares that he has decided that he will be the last king, and will go down in history as the last king. What becomes of the King is unclear as of this point, so I shall stop talking about him for now.
Noctis is joined by two friends and a military tactician from his kingdom, confirmed to be named Ignis, during his travel. Though it is unknown as to how they will be used in battle it is thought that it will be similar to that of Donald and Goofy in Kingdom Hearts. Noctis can equip any weapon he desired, be it long sword, gun sword, dagger and so on. (not sure if it's limited to just swords... and overly large lances) The blonde haired guy wields a gun and while controlling this character you can enter a first person mode that allows you to aim more precisely. Apparently anyone can also use magic in this game, but only while in the presence of someone like Noctis and Stella who can see the "light".
The talk of L'cie and such from Final Fantasy XIII is also thought to appear in this a bit, but not as important, and more like a thing from history. This game will take place in a darker and more modern times like era. I am assuming that the entire game will be down on Pulse and the many places that came to be since Final Fantasy XIII.
Although there is not yet a release date planed for this game. I am personally expecting one this E3, June 7 -9 in Los Angelos. I am praying that we get a major surprise and the game comes out before Final Fantasy XIII-2 and if not sometime by or before next E3. Versus XIII might appear this year, but an E3 showing has not yet been finalized.
Versus XIII has seemed to become one of the most anticipated games this year. According to Gamespot the game is ranked 6th in the top ten most anticipated games by users. This not really having to do with what I was talking about, but I thought I would add it in here.
Other irrelevant Final Fantasy new: Final Fantasy Agito XIII was renamed Final Fantasy Type-0, while still remaining a part of the XIII Crystal Nova series. Final Fantasy XIII-2 a direct sequel to the popular Final Fantasy XIII is in production by popular demand. Dissidia 012: Final Fantasy is also in production.
So recently I got the 360, and the nice looking slimline version I might add. I got two games to start off with; Tales of Vesperia and Mass Effect. Both of them great games. So I've been pondering this for a while even before I got the 360 which great game would be great to buy? Having had the PS3 for about two years now I have most multiplatform games that I would bother with for the PS3. So I turned my eyes only towards exclusives for now. Which is part of the reason I chose Mass Effect and Tales of Vesperia. Other games I'm looking at would be of course the Halo series (3 and on), maybe Fable, and Mass Effect 2 once I'm done with number one. Looking at it the list it doesn't seem very large Large to me. So for the reason I'm posting this Blog is that I want to ask 360 owners what the best exclusive games are for the 360. 360 owners, or non if you still have a thought about an exclusive, I'm looking forward to your responses.
