Playing "draw something " on my mobile, it's quite addictive !!
By the way, as for the original subject, I also played a little Crayon Physics Deluxe on my Nexus 7.
By we, I meant most people.
Yes us who buy the most games and are fueling the continued growth of the market are killing games. Which is why game budgets are getting higher.
This list is a couple years old, but can you spot the only game pre-2005 game on here?
1. Grand Theft Auto IV - $100 million
2. Gran Turismo 5 - $80 million
3. Shenmue - $70 million
4. Too Human - $60+ million
5. Metal Gear Solid 4 - $60 million
6. Halo 3 - $55 million
7. APB - $50 million
8. L.A. Noire - $50 million
9. Final Fantasy XII - $48 million
10. Killzone 2 - $45 million
People who continuously buy rehashes at premium prices like CoD are the only reason why game quality is going downhill and prices are going up. One can blame piracy or economy but the figures are there that if people want the game they will buy it as you just provided. That coincides with my original point that people with the attitude "I have to play it in one sitting" ruin the gaming fun for people who have the time to play long winded games, or like to span the gaming out around their lives yet still have a full game.
ET3D was trying to say that it is my fault for purchasing the game at such a high price. I refuted with my comment pretty much saying I don't buy them at that price and that most AAA titles don't fall for a long time. My last 60 dollar purchase was BF3, and before that Skyrim. The last actual game purchase I made before that was CoD4. Those were PC, for 360 I paid 17 bucks for a used copy of FF 13-2, and 30 for a new copy of FF13 at Best Buy way after it had dropped. That is the extent of my console purchases.
I wouldn't say game quality is going down, you just can't get caught up in the COD's and BF's of the world. Platformers have made a bit of a comeback with Uncharted and Tomb Raider, and interactive games such as Heavy Rain is multiple times better than anything done previous. The Last of Us is really looking like another quality title. I think one aspect you're missing is re-playability. There are so many games now that have multiple endings and much more freedom to do what you want. So while a game may only be 10 hours long there are multiple ways in which you can spend that 10 hours which really makes the game much longer. This on top of the fact that like a good movie, a good game can be revisited multiple times.
i'm playing dota2, a different game base on dota 1, it great but i hate its graphic
I'm currently trying to play Farcry 3. I learned that the Nvidia force res is working again so now I'm suffering lag playing it at 2560x1600 rofl. So far the game is ok and a much needed improvement on Farcry 2. The only thing I hate so far is how it takes so much to kill an animal.
Playing through Assassin's Creed 3 right now, I'm loving the DX11 tessellation. Also, picked up AC Brotherhood on the weekend because I skipped it last time but Ive been on a stealth kick lately. I need to get a new display though. I play on my TV and limited to 1280x720.
Would Far Cry 3 run on an AMD PhenomÉ Far Cry 2 was gorgeous and I loved the game plus it was very optimized. I`m just not sure if it is time to move upgrade my proc+mobo now.
I hate the bow hunting challenges freakin tiger kills me everytime. I love how the predator animals can attack you. Went for a swim and a gator got me. lol
