I didn't like Horizon. I thought it looked gorgeous, but the game play didn't do it for me and calling it an RPG was a joke. Very overrated IMO.

Loot boxes aren't that big of a deal as long as you can only buy them with in-game currency. I remember playing games 4 years ago that had them and I didn't hear any complaining, now all of a sudden it seems like everyone is losing their mind over them.

I did not get the hype behind Persona 5. I did rather enjoy Persona 4 back in the day, but each time I tried to play Persona 5 it just wasn't clicking. I wouldn't say it sucked, but it wasn't good to me.

I want games to be easier/less demanding as I get older and have more responsibilities. I understand why pay to win flourishes even though I'll never spend money on them. I have to be in the mood for an intense game and then I'll blow through it but it gets rarer and rarer as time goes on.

I'm... surprised at how much I'm agreeing with this thread. 4K is pointless unless you have a TV larger than anyone needs, loot boxes are indeed stupid, and while I enjoyed P5, I'd rather go through P3 or 4.

Modern gamers' expectations are stupid and petty. All I want is a fun game. I don't care how it's delivered. Graphics can be archaic, framerate can dip on occasion so long as it doesn't break the gameplay, no need for online, there can be small bugs/glitches. Give me good gameplay and a fun experience.

Games are far too cheap. If they followed pricing from the NES days we would be paying over $100. Consumer's unwillingness to pay more upfront is what has lead to the creation of microtranactions as well as the onslaught of paid DLC.

I completely agree with this. I'd just add as long as those items remain cosmetic and do not bar your from content if you don't have them than I actually find them to be fun.

Of course, Battlefront 2s thing is total bullcrap. Overwatch does it in a fun way.

I agree with this as well. I take a rare conservative stance in saying that I think if you want more games you need to work hard for them. You guys just buying games all frivilously and keeping them sealed, boooo!

Nintendo Switch will fail because they put the cart slot under a flap. Super Mario Odyssey will be the last game anyone will buy for it. Once sales of that game start to fall, that'll be the end of it.

I don't think Triple A publishers charge enough for high cost productions. I think games should cost $100 and DLC should be produced for them post-release at no charge to continue driving sales after launch.

I would be all aboard for that. I could see EA scrapping all DCL and just making a sequel instead so they can get another $100 out of you rather than give you what would be free DLC. More expensive games also means I don't have an insane backlog I'll get to, which I would like.

Game prices have been tanking more now than ever in history because no one buys full priced anymore. You see people waiting for $25-30 before they consider it worthwhile and you guys think charging $100 at release is going to go over well? DLC and micro transactions are optional and rarely even worth it. Even DLC drops in price pretty quickly. Charging more for games is a silly notion. Games just need higher sales numbers. Overhead in development is a static number. The more sales, the more profit. Lower prices result in more sales. A more helpful solution would be less shovelware and oversaturation of genres. And with that said, carry on with our grumblings.

Savage way to start the thread XD

I think Nintendo should go strictly 3rd party; offering games\toys\ and some hardware, then rely on Playstation to cover the console and online. I mean once upon a time they were going to be one entity anyway. So hey why not? That would be a win for gamers and consumer alike. We wouldn't need to buy multiple consoles anymore and get to enjoy what both companies have to offer.

I think B&M stores have their pluses and minuses. Preorder requirements and being forced to cut content and sell it post-release or include loot boxes are pretty big minuses. I'd prefer games that get reasonable development tables and proper test cycles and complete products from the outset than being gouged repeatedly months on end.

Saying games just need higher sales numbers is what's lead console gaming into mobile market tactics in the first place. Remember when Tomb Raider sold 3m copies and Square Enid considered it a failure? That's literally nuts. And unsustainable.

Well, for starters, it's very easy. Even the stuff after you beat it is really easy. More moons does not equal more fun. The game is seriously just one giant collect-a-thon. I mean, it's fun, and I enjoyed it. But it is not the best Mario game by far. In fact, I would say it's the worst main Mario game of the past decade. It's especially disappointing after Zelda. People kept talking about how this game was going to be to the Mario series what BotW was to the Zelda series. It is no BotW. I beat it and continued playing until I got around 550 moons. I have absolutely zero desire to go back to it right now.

I don't even want 4K. I have a old 32" 1080P HDTV Samsung I play PS4 games on. Everything looks beautiful. Sure it could be bigger and beautiful but what's the point? It's only me sitting there playing a game.

Now HDR I can get behind. It takes me forever to play games since I stroll around and take in the environment longer them other people. I just don't think I should have to buy a 50" HDR enabled display just to game. Sure there's cheaper units, but I need something with low lag. That + HDR just about ensures I have to buy bigger then I want/need.

Even if game prices had increased to 100-120, don't think for a second we wouldn't still have this insane microtransaction marketplace. The second they realized that connectivity gave more access to our wallets, they took it.

Budgets are overblown, which is why Tomb Raider.fails at 3 million sales.

I disagree with the idea that most modern games suck. I think despite all the cases of buggy, unfinished, and microtransaction-filled games, modern games are every bit as good as games from other generations. I'd put 2013, 2015, and 2017 up against any year in gaming history.

1994. You've already lost. 2017 ain't got crap on '94 I think. And I played and beat BotW and Persona 5, and they're very good games. But 2017 ain't 1994. If you want another year, hop up to 1997.

Like, I don't hate modern games by any stretch of the imagination, but they certainly don't hold up to past scrutiny. They're much much worse, in many ways, shapes and dimensions, somewhat highlighted by having to immediately release improved hardware profiles for BOTH major next gen systems to actually deliver on the promises of high-definition gaming, which has by and large been a rehash of the last generation with some very impressive, but still substantially rare exceptions.

I will say 2017 was markedly improved over the past four years.

hmm unpopular opinions....

I don't mind day 1 patches or patches in general, coming from the before time as an old guy, if a game was broken we had to suffer. now we are lucky to live in a time they can fix it, yes they could just make sure its right, but getting balance updates, patches and fixes can help many games

nier automata and persona 5 are exponentially better than Zelda and Mario, and either should be game of the year over those two but many publications will give it to the Nintendo game. horizon is also better.

imo this is the second or third best (top 5 at worst) year gaming as ever experienced, 15 being the best (witcher 3, #1 all time for me) and 97 in there too.

the switch is much better than i expected it to be, and i think its gonna be a huge success, but since portability isn't a factor for me it will be a console of exclusives for me, as ive invested in my living being the center of my entertainment world with a nice tv for HDR and 4k ,ps4 pro and xbox one x, so since i'll be playing only at home i'll choose one x for most multiplats more than likely.

after waiting an eternity for beyond good and evil 2 its not what i wanted, but maybe it will still be good in the end. i have faith in Ancel so we'll see.

People only care when the crates contain in game items that give people that pay an advantage. There are plenty of games that do it correctly.

as long as it is in game currency it is somehow less evil. as long as the items don't give an unfair advantage to people who sink real money it doesn't bother me, if they want to put optional stuff in boxes we don't have to buy it. battlefront 2 though was just a huge slap to consumers though, how could they not know that was gonna be a firestorm.

Not really. People were losing their minds over Forza 7's loot crates and all they give you is new racing gear and mods (which can only be used in single player).

Yeah, its reallt crazy. Of course, I only bought it a month ago, but when I went to the store I was really suprised by how vast its library was in such a short time. Its got some garbage in there I'm sure but very little.

The indie market is going to be a real advantage for this console. It could also be a crutch since it doenst have much memory on it it to hold a large library. I may choose to buy the upcoming Bloodstained on it rather than the PS4 if its released on it. Most 2D indie games and niche games I'll probavly choose to purchase on it as well.

I'm glad to see Nintendo competing again. I expect consoles to from now on to be portable slash home from now on. At least that is what I'd like to see moving forward.

I would be surprised if either MS or Sony went hybrid, TBH. I think that both MS and Sony are going to be focused on 4k from this point going forward and no one wants to jump into the cage with Nintendo in the hand held market, that's their arena. If either tried it I would say that MS has the potential to make a decent hybrid but only because of what their Surface hardware division has been able to accomplish the last few years. Those things are pretty incredible with how they pack so much power into such a small form factor while getting like 17 hours of battery.

Switch is weak. I don't want sad ports games of yesteryear like Doom, Skyrim, and L.A. Noire that run worse in 2017 than they when they were originally released. The performance of the flagship Zelda game is sad. It can't even run Overcooked smoothly which looks like a Gamecube game. If devs treat Switch like the underpowered stepchild console like they did the Wii, it's impossible to get excited for anything but big exclusive releases.

Sony said that mobile is too strong and doesn't want to try any more hand held consoles in the future, so they're out. I think that MS was rumored to want to enter the market waaaay long ago with a tablet style thing, but I think they didn't have the resources to divide between that and the home console market, so they chose to can the idea. Nintendo is so good in that market that no one really wants to go up against them at this point, especially now that they've essentially created a portable X1 (power wise).
Karaiya
Gold Good Trader Has Written 1 Review

Yeah that market is hard to compete in. Even if they released a tablet I dont think they could compete with Android and IOS on a operating level (Sony). I just look at the Switch and think okay, want to take my console anywhere this has to be the future.

I suppose as long as devs keep pushing hardware limits handhelds won't be able to keep up. Nintendo does take a hit in graphics being portable.

I certainly will still choose to by the most cutting edge games on console and hopefully PC if I can ever get there in budget.

I was surprised to see such a slick console just feel so unfun compared to the 3DS. The games that tried for that console feel either ran poorly or suffered from extreme boredom or, in Uncharted's instance, the really bad-feeling controls of the system itself. Borderlands 2 was probably my biggest disappointment, that just played real bad. It was clear it needed more horsepower to bring anything other than JRPGs over and be compelling.

Both the PSP and Vita were beautiful. Sony has always been good at making pretty looking things that do great stuff. But they just aren't "fun". I think when something looks as nice as a Vita my thinking is it should also be my phone, and my camera, and my, everything else, but I dont neccessarily want to "play" with it. When I see a 3DS I think, "I want to play with this!". Not that it should be a toy. But games are what they are, play things. As much as we want to make them adult and cool and techie, we "play" with them. The reason why consoles work as adult things is because they also do everything else.

That may be an unpopular opinion on games. But to me they're not different than toys in general. So when a parent is at a the store and thet see this expensive slick ass, obviously breakable Sony and a durable ass toy thats cheaper and does fun for children I can see why we pick the Nintendo over the thing that looks like my phone but said phone is more useful.

Na, I can see why you'd say that. But for me it goes P3, P5, and then P4. I don't think any Persona game will top P3 for me because it's the first one I played. All three games are 10s in my book, though.

Its hard because P5 is a masterpiece. Dont get me wrong. However, its superior aesthetics, and battle system masks how its really bad pacing and its characters are just not as well written and fleshed out. Ann is a perfect example of how one of the best character designs that appears to have this amazing multifaceted character and they make her a bit of a clumsy airhead. She starts off strong and turns out really flawed. Makoto, is the strongest character but she is made out to be very insecure. Ryuji is meh, Futaba is good but she cimes in so late its difficult to create a bond.

Than that craphead cat making me take naps. There are points that where you are really restricted at the wrong time in the game.

This game again is a masterpiece so dont think I hate it I love it and is a great Goty nominee. But I think its story was specifically for Japanese young people and had very Japanese political undertones for Japanese young people.

I'd have to give the nod to P4- the AI of the other characters in P3 does not always do what I want; while this was fixed in P3P, the Answer was removed, leaving no real definitive P3 for me. But I'd also put both 3 and 4 above 5...

No grinding, no upgrades, no open world, no load times, no rewinding, 60fps. The only game that does it better is Outrun 2!

Outrun 2 is GREAT.

I'm a big fan of Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2 on PS2/GC/Xbox yes

Super Mario Odyssey just didn't hook me. Got to about the fourth world (120-130 moons) and haven't picked it up since. I mean, it's clearly a well-made game but it's missing a meaningful sense of progression/story for me.

Mass Effect Andromeda should be a top ten game of the year candidate. The story is fairly decent, the combat is very good, and there's a crap ton of stuff to do.

"Very good" and "decent" don't make for very good GOTY candidates.

I mean I guess we could have most decent game of the year and pretty/very good categories of the year.

Those would be the only award shows other devs could compete when Nintendo releases Mario and Zelda in the same year.

I nominate Blaster Master Zero for VG GOTY and Super Mario Run for Decent GOTY. Nintendo still wins.
