Heads up: DOOM isn't modern, its futuristic.
Any shooter games get the approval from me. Anything that involves people with technology and that use guns is approved. I am not saying that
all sword games are bad, but most swordies are.
There are guns in Daikatana but that doesnt make it a good game.
RPG to some gamers might mean Role-Playing-Game. But to me that means Rocket-Propelled-Grenade. Which is what the abbreviation is used for in
real life and in shooters.
Have you ever fired a rocket launcher? I bed one trillion dollars you never have, heads up #2: You can't run long distanes with one, you can't carry
more than a couple rounds, you can't reload it yourself while standing and espeially not running, you an barely jump with it, you can't aim it or
fire it while running, and for your information there is also one thing called real life Role Playing Games that are a million times more common among
civilians than Roket Propelled Grenades.
And you say swinging swords is stupid... pfft at least it's possible.
Does anyone notice that there are no good games on PS2 now a days. There used to be but now there isn't anything. I have xbox and PS2 and I
basically got converted to xbox (after playing Halo for the first time in my life a long time ago) because of the good shoot em ups.
Maybe beause nowadays the PS2 is like 5 years old?
This is how a categorize the consoles:
Gamecube: Pretty much queer games. I mean Mario is getting old.
PS2: Has good sports games but has no good shooters. It doesn't make its own games which is bad because if it did, it would have more people buying
it. It basically just mooches off of other game creating companies which is not bad to do, but they should use some of their own creativity.
Xbox: Creates its own games mostly. Has good shooter games. Has the most memory. Ability to save music to system. XBOX LIVE WHICH OWNS ALL SYSTEMS BY
FAR. Actually it PWNS all systems by A LOT. Has interesting plot games. Games based on mulitplayer. The down-side is that since most of its games are
based on multiplayer, they don't tend to work on the single-player. But when they do work on the Campaign a lot, it is usually good. And Example of a
bad campaign but good multiplayer would be Halo 2 and The exact opposite of Halo 2 would be Halo. Halo had an OK multiplyer but the vehicles were a
little hard to drive and cheap.
Heads up#3: None of the systems make their own games.
The GameCube has a lot of kiddie games indeed, but that doesnt make them bad. Wind Waker is critically acclaimed and most people who havent just
looked at the screenshots agree that it is a great game. Metroid Prime (haven't played nr 2 yet) is one of the best first person shooters on that
generation of consoles. Killer 7 is utterly original and fantastically pulled off. You'd probably like it, there's blood in it! OMG!!
The PS2 is out of date, the only reason why I bought one was to play FF7 and Singstar on vorspiels. There are some good games on it as on most systems
but I havent played that many of them.
The XBOX is made by Mirosoft thus its lame, but as I already said, it's not the system that matters it's the games. Maybe you should give that
statement a thought.
The XBOX360 shouldn't be compared to the previously mentioned consoles as it comes from another era, yet none of the games I have played on it have
caught my attention except the arade games. Too bad I have sponsored MS with 2 of these damn machines, one for my brothers for xmas and one for
myself. I expect among other companies Rare to deliver some great games in the future, but as of yet its been pretty weak, except the graphial part.
All hail HD.
Edit: My C button is kinda broken.
