Well you are damn right shianova.

I have not read what the users have posted here, so please don't rant me on the basis of "This has been said before".

Well nowadays more and more games are coming way too fast. Many of them are from the same company. So its obvious that they are not paying much attention to each and every game, but boast of doing so.

What really ****es me off is how short the single player campaigns are in games nowadays. 5 hours and WTF, the credits starts rolling already. Call of Duty is what I am really blaming the most. Their single player campaigns are like DLC's, they keep on coming, but are priced as normal games, or may I say even more than that.

Haven't played a lot of Halo (The last Halo game I have is Halo 3), but I can really say the same thing for them. All the game series nowadays are following the same routine. Its all about the profits.

And about the Kinect, I am indifferent. They can pimp it up with whatever they want. I am still happy with my standard Xbox.

All I really look forward to are games that are made with much effort put to it. It should not only be great when it comes to graphics (Which I think is the only element game developers pay attention to), but in the campaign length too. I really would not mind how much time they take and how much lesser the frequency of a game getting released becomes. I beg for quality, not quantitiy.

After watching the Gears Of War 3 gameplay at E3, I was stoked to see it was the same game as the first and second ones.

Yea, it's the same with books too! After reading the latest Harry Potter novel, I was shocked that Harry Potter and all the other characters were still in it! It's the same book! All they did was put in a few new twists to the plot and called it a day.

I suppose the current economic climate is partly responsible as investing in a new title is always a risk. They could spend millions on producing a top quality, original game and end up with a complete flop.

On the other hand, sequels are a quick fix solution for companies who have been hit hard financially and any title in an established franchise is guaranteed to rake in the cash. As much as I agree with whats been said you can't really condemn developers for not risking new ideas.

You know you can't expect to much. When franchises like Call of Duty and GOW sell so well, they're gonna keep dishing it out until it runs out of quality. That's when the new independents come in. Good example is Tony Hawk and Skate. While they're not from the same company, I'm sure everyone in the business noticed the declining trend and took advantage of it with a new innovative game to take the market. It's almost a cycle, although the industry really hasn't been around long enough to say this.

I never thought E3 was for the fans at all. Heck, if E3 really was for the fans then it would be open for the public. E3 is more about investors than fans and consumers. Companies nowadays market the hell out of sequels, series and franchises because they're the safest bets, they show that the company can turn a stable profit, which is inviting for investors.

And let's face it, there's always been crappy franchises that get by simply because people want to buy the crummy update every year (madden, tony hawk, most activision titles, etc.) but if you look closely, you can find gems hidden in the rough too. (coughgoldensundscough)

Also on an unrelated note, the 3DS looks kickin' rad.

Gears was promised to be a trilogy with possibility of another story or spinoff to it. Gears 3 completes the initial trilogy, thus not overused yet.

Mario and Zelda are iconic Nintendo trademarks who no matter if you're a gamer or not you know the guy with the blue overalls, red shirt, and red cap with the black/brown mustache is cosplaying Mario. An end to Mario or Zelda or Metroid or whatever is an end to Nintendo's best titles, and an end to Nintendo, and they ALWAYS come up with a story or gameplay twist to make it fresh and exciting. How many times have they released Super Mario 64 again after initial release? Once. Nintendo DS and if you even count it a second time with Virtual Console on Wii.

Fable also looks to be a big trilogy that caps things up.

Call of Duty is being milked to all hell and needs to lay down and die, or else the publisher is beating the dead horse with the suck stick. There's only so many times you can do WW2 or a Modern Warfare FPS before you get bored, and seeing as it's always the same game with a fresh coat of paint every year or so, it's bad.

I'm truly looking forward to Crysis 2, Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, F.3.A.R., Fable 3 (Woo PC/360 Simultaneous release!), and of course The Force Unleashed 2, all of which promise to improve on the bad and keep up with the great that the first entries in their series started.

Just my two cents.

And Metal Gear Solid 3 on the 3DS that looks on-par or better than the PS2 version is always a welcome addition.

Recently I bought another 360 (which I am still trying to sell btw) and surprisingly, I spent more time playing arcade games. These little games are so original and fun that I didn't even bother with the big titles.


When I look back to when I was a kind and had a NES/SNES, those systems had some awesome games filled with stories and challenges even on easy mode.
