First I just want to sincerely thank everyone for the honest post. I really appreciate the feedback. It is a great feeling to be around the better
side of ATS. You guys are nothing less than great.
I really want you guys to understand what I mean by the experience. When I say Nintendo I don't just think of the game Mario Bros., I think about how
all of the games seem to be related. The music, color, the whole experience itself is unique. Well at least they did at one point. You guys are
convinced that their is only one way to represent or to capture the experience and this is not true. No one is doing anything unique. I just see the
same thing over and over. For example look at the piece designed for the Jaguar, the number pad overlay thingy. Imagine if all games came with a
different 'card'. That was unique and very original.That would enhance the gaming experience.
rockintitz : You are full of awesomeness. I totally agree. Maybe I am getting old, lol I usually can get these things wth is MOH.
DJMSN : You say that there are many with the same dreams,that is great now we just need a platform/medium to come together which is the net, the glue
would be the fact we all have the same desire. I'd give it 5 years at the max before we are introduced to games from a different perspective. I am
going to check this 'Cube' out, it sounds interesting. It has that ring that I spoke of in the OP. The Cube sounds like a true console in that
I didn't know that about GTA. I am one of the fortunate people to have played the first two. Yeah, the weird ones where you could fart and burp on
people and the crazy overhead view. I actually rented them. Funny, that is a dead concept. Staring at empty game boxes for hours before yo make your
great decision. You really killed it when you said text based games. Your imagination goes crazy when you play those. There are greatest games with
less. Even 8 bit music rules in 2015!
Aldakoopa : That is not true and you kind of proved my point. PS4 and XB1 are miniature pc's with an emphasis on on all around entertainment. Look at
who are producing them. That is cool, but it really divides the focus of the original concept. However, I do partially agree with you. Steam is
revolutionary. Consoles may need something to hate so people can actually go back to work.
Shuye : I do not have a bg in programming. I have basic knowledge of hardware. I was consuming games and equally intrigued with 'whats under the
hood'. You are absolutely correct, I have to learn a language if I want this to become a reality. I am not trying to reinvent the wheel, I just have
some really cutting edge ideas. They aren't limited just to game play, but how the game is played and the entire experience can be revolutionized.
See I don't have great funds but the one thing I have are creative ideas. I believe that alone is greater than anything. That is how every single
concept for any console was conceived.
SpongeBread : I literally laughed out loud at your post. That is the people I want to reach. The self inventor is a myth and if your not a big
corporation people get intimidated and that is an illusion. Everything started on a good idea that matched a need for the people. Look at the
original walmart compared to now.
Now I am not saying you have to become a monster though.
and 14263 : Sigh. You struck a soft spot. Zelda - A link to the past is incredible ALL AROUND. Thu music is incredible and flawless. I agree with
you 100%. Link is a character/concept that will last. And these games still can't top GE for the 64 because it original.
pr0ph3t : I had no knowledge of unreal. Someone within the first hand full of post recommended it and I checked out about an hours worth of
information and I was blown away. Is unreal free. You are the second person to say that but I didn't get that when I looked it up. It is absolutely
nothing short of perfection.
DeadSeraph : I see where your coming from. The only point I would like to stress is the idea of creating a realm where a certain level of gameplay is
expected all around. You just know when you say nintendo you aren't going to find too many game like Metal Gear Solid(bad example since they created
the original which is a classic), or Resident Evil. That type of experience doesn't exist within the modern Nintendo paradigm. I really, really agree
with you 2nd and 3rd paragraph. You are right. But we shouldn't limit our experience. Are you pleased with the Xbox and PS3/4 really? Compared to
what people used to do when they released their next console.
I understand you guys and I thank you for you comments. I truly respect your feedback. I am just not pleased with how it started and where it is at.
We have wonderful tools and the elements to make really great games but..... I fully understand things evolve but the integrity should remain the
same. They lost focus. Now you have good looking game with very dumb stories that you forget once you go get dinner and log back on. The companies
are focusing on utilizing the power rather than creating a great experience.
What if when the next wave of consoles came out, Sega decided to release one also. You guys are like, well they are all the same, and that is true
and that is the issue. I imagine they would release quality unique games and not just try to capitalize and force feed you games that makes
absolutely no sense. The boundaries would be in place within its realm. That is all I am looking for. I wish I could go into detail but I don't want
to spill any beans. But I feel like these companies aren't even using the concept of gamer profiles, gamertags, and online gaming the correct way. I
fell like they are English teachers trying really hard to teach a class about mineralogy. It is not going to work....
Peace to my ATS family.
