It's ridiculous now, every big game has 3 and 4 sequels. Theres no originallity anymore. I don't mind GTA being done again, but 32432 Mega Mans? There were a few new games this year (God of War to name one) but besides that it was all sequels, games based on movies, and the same old shit.

And you know why? Because you people keep buying them. I read an article on this a month or so ago. The only original game in 2004 to crack the top 50 best selling was "Fable." So if you owned a company, you would do the same. If you sold 1 million units of, lets say Halo, and the company can only finance so many projects, you better believe theyre gonna make Halo 2 over anything else. So stop buying that Mario Party, cuz they are about to release the 8th one of them (I think...)

You get EGM too? Thats where i got the idea for this thread. Great gaming mag.

but yeah, i guess if people buy mario party 8, its safer than making new series. It's still sad though. The only new Nintendo series recently is Pikmin, and that game sucks. Miayamato (however you spell it) needs to make something new, not another 20 marios and zeldas.

yeah but Nintendo always does new shit in their sequels, unlike micro$oft.

Much respect for playstation, they will keep releasing new games on an "outdated" console, like the Giant Colossus game and some real nice animated game and Genji for example. Micro$oft doesnt have anything new for the xbox.

I believe I read it online, I dont read to many magazines... hmm

But yea, I would like more original games, but no company will chance it. Theyd rather make the SURE money, then take a 50/50 chance of making or losing money...

hey, btw, Happy 17th Birthday :beer:

thanks wu gambino

and yeah microsoft is just abandoning xbox for xbox 360, which i predict will flop. It'll be Halo 3 and thats it

II really doubt 360 will flop. I think they may do better. The 360 has two prices. So itll be friendly to both casual and hardcore gamers. And it comes out first. Some people whove had both systems likely will not want to wait untill Summer 06 for PS3. And the price of PS3 is rumored to be near 600$ even more, which if Sony lives up to their promises will make them losing nearly 200 bucks a console. And the "innovative, next-gen" blue ray discs will be anywhere to 60-80 bucks a game. (XB360 games are going to be 50$ with only 30% of publishers setting 60$)

And what other big thing is coming out this holiday season?? Nothing. Some people will ask for the XB360 for that reason only...

Yes, it doesnt have many good must-have games at launch. But the only must have for Xbox was Halo, almost for 5 months. So you gotta think about that...

Im not gonna be buying either for a little bit, I just got a PS2 Monday cuz my Xbox died. I was gonna buy 360, but I barely play games anymore, so its not worth it yet.
I must say tho , I like PS2 way more than Xbox...
Socom, MSG3, and SD vs. Raw are dope!

whoa, whoa, whoa, there are some haters here.
first off, 360 will not flop, microsoft learned its lesson, they got alot of third party support this time. Nintendo, they just need to stop making the same mario spinoffs, other than that their games are some of the best out there. I mean Metroid Prime 2, are you kidding me. I have all three systems and I still think that was the best game of the year... oh, wait I forgot about resident evil 4. Damn that game was fucking crazy. Love Halo2, but the single player was weak. Sony doing their thing, their sequels are the worst though, but they got good games too. Lets just look at the new gen shit and leave these systems in good memory.

Peace

Oh, and I like Pikmin 2, hard as shit though cant pass it.

One more thing, the ps2 got a game coming out called okami i think, looks like it would work for the ds also, but the graphics are amazing on that. you're a werewolf or something, I dont know. Oh, and BLACK looks good.

thing is microsoft too cocky that keeps people in japan (the games wallhalla) away from that machine. they dont get accepted there which makes them fail.
