I am really starting to get sick of constantly hearing the same things over & over again - resolution this, frame rate that. Why can't it go back to the way games used to be? Does it play well, does it have a good story, but above all - is it enjoyable and makes you want to play more, regardless of the system it's on

PC doesn't have this problem, daily humble bundle is a good one today jump on it guys it's only a 24 hour bundle.

Exactly Joe, that's my point

I 100% agree with you Dave, the resolution/FPS is a joke, it's "click bait" for sites/gaming journalists that obviously have nothing better to write about. Gone are the days where you could have a good old chat about the game, what does it play like, how's the story? I still wonder why for the people where it seems resolutions etc mean so much have bought either console? if you want the best visuals, invest your money in a good gaming PC. I guess people have to justify their own choices to others by attacking others which tells me they are probably not 100% happy with the choice they have made.

Couldn't agree more. As long as it is playable and enjoyable then it does not matter.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
The majority of the people going on about it probably couldn't even tell the difference about it they just need to try and justify their choice.
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 3 years ago
I would have to say, the best game I have played so far has to be TLoU. Great story, amazing visuals, smooth. Why should anyone have to justify their choice?
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 3 years ago
Apparently there are a lot of factors to be able to tell the difference. System, Screen, distance from screen. I don't sit with my nose up against my TV analysing each pixel. I sit back and enjoy

I agree with dave also. Most people forget about the games itself these days but not every gamer is like that witch is good. Me being one of them things that come 1st in games for me is 1:Story 2:Gameplay 3:Graphics. But everyone has an opinion about these things & fan boys will always try to one up there console & drag others consoles down. All that matters is the games themselves & bringing enjoyment to gamer. It doesn't matter to what ever console you prefer & own end of rant.

what comes first for me is fun. regardless with it has a good story if i'm not having fun ill stop playing.

Story and Gameplay are the two big factors for me. Is the story interesting enough for me to want to find out more, and if gameplay is good, then usually that makes it fun to play.

What are peoples thoughts on the story that has been rumbling along about Nintendo and Tomadachi Life they have come under a lot of stick for not including same sex relationships in the game http://uk.ign.com/articles/2014/05/08/nintendo-strikes-down-gay-marriage-requests-for-tomodachi-life. To me it seems like people always find something to complain about its supposed to be a fun quirky game and is not supposed to represent real life.
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 3 years ago
Isn't that the whole basic point of gaming - escapism. Why should a developer be made to feel guilty or criticised if they don't include something that happens in real life. When was the last time someone blacked out an entire city with a mobile phone? No, because it make-believe. FFS just enjoy games for what they are, a bit of fun

On a side note - as I seem to be in a ranting mood. I am also fed up (even more so) with game bashing by the media when a disturbed individual psychs out and commits a horrific crime, "it's because he/she has been playing x,y,z game"
Akemi no Zero's avatar

Tomadachi life does look fun. People should remember its an game & just enjoy it you know.

Old Timer's avatar
Old Timer 3 years ago
@ Dave, don't even get me started on the media bashing games. Now I'm extremely sorry if someone goes out and hurts someone or worse, it's tragic but the media would have us believe it was the games fault? bollocks! there was something wrong there in the first place and anything could have triggered it off, game, TV, reading a book. Jesus, I'm cheesed off now, going to go give my budgie a flying headbutt the little blue twat deserves it ;)

@DAVE @OLDTIMER to be fair alot of non gaming parents do not monitor games for there children the same way they would a film so i think there is an underlaying problem there.
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 3 years ago
Yeah the media blaming games always does my head in (mainly the Daily Fail) The media never blames Eastenders and other soaps for increase in affairs in marriages or a rise in domestic abuse.
Old Timer's avatar
Old Timer 3 years ago
@ Joe, totally agree, unfortunately there's loads of parents that just let their kids do what they want, as long as they don't have take time with them then that's all they worry about. I do believe though, a game, film, book etc isn't the main cause, I'm not saying it helps but I do believe there is already an underlaying problem and then you get the trigger.

I wish games did influence things in real life. The amount of time i've put into fifa over the years i'd be playing premier league football now.
Akemi no Zero's avatar

Exactly there just passing on the blame to other places coz they don't want to show the ugly truth. Parents some times just moan after when they buy there 10 or 12 year old an 18 rated game then moan when they see what content they son or daughter are playing later then blame the game itself for there ignorance
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar

I've got the answer - picture the scenario, I've been playing Mass Effect for 6 hours straight shooting aliens in the face. At the end of the session you should get a pop-up window "If you have been affected by Commander Shepards story line, we urge you to contact your local asylum and book an extended reservation, you weirdo". Oh, and Old Timer - Obviously you should cut down on playing Angry Birds

i have always put game play before graphics on any game thats why i have in my collection some games that have had really low scores for example the red fraction series and brutal legend

I loved the original Red Faction, especially putting a sticky bomb on the guys back whilst he's using the urinal. Then watch him run around screaming before detonating. Sorry, psychosis playing up again.
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar

yeah frame rate and stuff you want it to be the best but as long as you enjoy your time thats all that matters, red faction guerrilla was my best going round and destroying bases

Reading the above comments, I think a lot of journos/gaming sites could learn a lot from people on this site. Talking with a great degree of common sense and valid points, with a bit of banter thrown in for good measure

Yep i like underrated games also like dark sector. I wish they would make an sequel to the game already i think original came out way back in 2007. Great story & very fun gameplay indeed.

Gameplay above all else (this being how it plays and the stability of the game itself), Story (if applicable), Music, graphics.

On a side note I think a good change on the site that has happened recently is putting the coming soon games in date order its a lot nicer to see whats coming in the immediate future and what games are further down the line.

Back to last generation... Deadly Premonition was possibly one of the worst looking games of the generation with terrible dips screen tears etc but my word did it play great. A game isn't all about its graphics, resolution... The most important thing is how it plays. It's what distinguishes Deadly Premonition and Mindjack (the worst game of the generation)

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
