All About Perfect_Shot
Before I go into this, I'd like to say that this is my opinion. If you don't like it, move on. No offence.
Every now and again, I find myself staring at my games collection for my X360, DS and PC and just have no desire to play any of them. Yeah, I still play things like Gears3 every now and again, and certain fighters as well, but the new age of gaming seems to be dying out for me.
For me it's been a long time since I've sat down and played something memorable and enjoyable long-term like the old games on the NES-N64 era, and a handful of PS titles. I loved playing things like Punch-Out, Paperboy and Mario. I spent hours on Super Mario Kart and even longer on Mario Kart 64. I was a huge Tekken fan, and put a fair bit of time into things like Spyro. I still do.
I miss those times.
The "Next-Gen" is plagued with developers who want to makes games to be the next Call of Duty (one of the major culprits), the next Elder Scrolls, or whatever genre they're looking to put a game into. Even then, successful games are often followed by sequels that are nothing but a slight rehash, after rehash. All to a point when not even a breath of fresh air is left in a game, and developers rely on gamers to buy regardless, usually knowing they won't bother to complain.
The last while I've been slowly buying back my old collection. Getting together all my favorite games and consoles of the 'good times'. All this while I've barely touched my 360, or other consoles for that matter. It made me realize those games weren't just good for nostalgia; they are legit good games. Sometimes simple is better.
Anyways, I didn't really want to drag this on this long. Thanks for reading. I wish future consoles and games good luck, with hope that gaming won't end up with a dry, boring future.
Its been many months since I last posted a blog. Anyways to get straight to the point, there have been a quite a few games from 2010 that I played and enjoyed from the start and ended up hating (or abosolutely hated from beginning to end). I am simply amazed by the sheer number of people who rated Final Fantasy XIII well. I've stated this a few times already, but I was very angry about the time it took for Square Enix to put together that game (as well as the cost to buy it) and in return, I get a game with limited enjoment value. Battles were tedious, cutscenes were too long or too stupid (or strange, if you prefer a nicer word) and too much walking around. Did I mention battles sucked? Graphics were pretty much perfect though, but sadly IMO, the game didn't preform so well. Whenever I see any review of that game with a score of 7.0+, I wonder if the reviewer was reviewing the entire series instead of the game.
On a different note, I loved Dragon Age: Origins. Until the end. When there is nothing to do. In just about every game I've played after beating the last boss, there is end game content. But in DA:O, you can't even carry over your character with all its items into a new game (unless you import it to Awakenings, which sucked) I've noticed that many Bioware games (yes, you too Mass Effect 2) have a great story, but after you finish it, content afterwards either is too short, or too lame.
Then there is one of my favorite games to bash, Over-G Fighters. Thank god it's a bargain bin game now. If that game was made as DLC, I wouldn't have had much problem with it. It's gameplay seemed too much like a mini-game to be a full fledged game to me. Enough said.
There are a few more games I'd like to add in this blog, but I'm a little short on time.
Thanks for reading. Night.
I just finally got around to putting up most of my ratings for the games I've played. Gotta say though, some of the games I haven't played in ages (Pokemon Red in particular) which goes to show how far behind I am on all this.
Anyways, just got Dragon Age Origins, and I'm impressed. The game starts out a bit on the slow side, but after the opening it's just simply amazing. Great story, characters, graphics, etc. Might get around to doing a review of it, if I ever decide whether I want to review FF13 or not, considering it was a complete disapointment to me. I can't believe so many people are impressed by FF13. I thought I was just boring. It has good graphics and a well made plot, but the battles drag on way too long and the combat system is far from perfect (Hate when you go to switch fighting styles and the enemies keep attacking you). I think it'll be the last FFI ever play, tbh.
