This is the problem with gamers these days, you guys care too much about graphics. Graphics can only make a game slightly better, but the gameplay is what should be the most important aspect of a game. There are plenty of PS2 games with far inferior graphics but superior gameplay that any current games on the 360 or the PS3.

Right now for me, I can play on my friend's PS3 and 360, so no need to buy one for my own yet, and sticking to my PS2 which still has games coming out for it (although not much, and the games will soon stop coming). And plus, the PS2 has so many great titles that I haven't played yet (namely God of War 2, played the first but not the second yet).

I'll eventually get a PS3 later but not until the price goes down and more games like MGS4 comes out for it.

Anyway. I've got a broken 360 Premium. Been broken for almost a year now. (Know what's wrong, don't care to fix.) I've played Gears of War. Fun, but easy and very repetitive. Halo 3, It's like I'm playing through the first two all over again. Why did I play it? To find out if it sucked as much as I said it did -- It did. I also played Episode 2 -- Loved it, for however short I played it for. TF2 as well. However. I am not in the "next gen" as of yet.

I'm still spending time with the greatest console ever -- The PS2. Enjoying games like Ratchet: Deadlocked, and Shadow of the Colossus. I plan on picking up every good PS2 game -- albeit the uber rares like Rez. and of course -- No RPG's. But still. How many of you actually played all of the previous generations good titles? And played them to their best, at that?

In all honesty, I'm sure none of you have. So. Instead of jumping to Wal-Mart to get the Faggotry-edition of Gaylo 3 (How much is it? $110?) get like what? Seven awesome PS2 games instead. Or get the Orange Box, because as far as I'm concerned, it's the only perfect uh.. "box" so far. And I'm afraid it won't be getting any better for a while. So do yourself a favor, and bask in the old ages. Er.. Well, sixth-generation.

So. Do yourself the favor of putting that 360, PS3, and Gamecube 1.5 in the closet, and set up your PS2 again, play some good games and not the same crap over and over again.

Discuss previous-gen games and awesome shit about them. Also Discuss Gen6 > Gen7.


>>You are absolutely right! Why spend such a huge amount on systems that aren't even putting out yet? PS2 is awesome and is still the best console out there!

Well said. If people didn't care so much about graphics, companies wouldn't put so much effort into focusing on the great graphics race and actually try and come up with good plots or unique gameplay styles or something to make a game actually stand out, na? But it seems screen resolution is the only thing that makes or breaks a game nowadays. Sure, good graphics can be awesome and really enhance some games, but they shouldn't take precidence over gameplay or the actual storyline.

And won't influence me into buying any of the next gen consoles just to play a bunch of pointless crappy games with "good graphics," not until any worth-while games come out~

I have all the next Gen consoles and they're all backwards compatible so it doesnt really matter to me
Posted 2/19/08
I only have the Wii but I hardly play it (hopefully it would change in the future). I actually play my Xbox (original) more then I play my Wii.

....i remember how being in the last gen felt before i got my 360....in my opinion....we should wait and see...with the technology available to us in the current gen....surely some great games will come out....the last gen lasted nearly 10 years, so of course many good games are available for it....but right now...i wish i had a ps2, so i could play all those RPG's i missed out on....i have a pirated xbox original...and ive played EVERY good game available for it thats available in my area....and I still do...but i desire a change of pace from all the action...and RPG's seem like a good place to start...

How could you play halo 3 and the Orange Box if your 360 Premium has been broken for over a year...both of those games been out for less than 6 months.....and dont insult halo...people buy halo 3 to play more halo...of course it feels like the first 2 all over again...if halo 3 didnt feel like the first 2 halo games...it wouldnt be a halo game....if you didnt like how the previous 2 games felt...why did you buy halo 3 in the first place....saying halo 3 feels like halo 2 with better graphics.....is like saying half life 2 episode 2, is half life 2 with more open areas....and I have played all of the games mentioned above...so this is not unfounded opinion

screw ps2 the games have terrible graphics. the only game i plan on playing for it is naruto ultimate ninja 3 that comes out in march. I have money enough for ps3, wii, and 360 and i play them all about equal time. its no burden to me playing next gen games bc why? they are fun and better than old games. why play an old game for ps2 with no one when you can get on live in next gen games and play with anyone?

also halo 3 does suck with all the gay immature kids that talk loud in their high voices but games like COD4 its also bc if a kd gets anoying ill make fun of him. in halo 3 there are so many they end up banding together and yelling louder!

I don't really like the next gen stuff too much.
and anyway, Microsoft fail at everything, and the PS3 is WAY overrated.
Personally, I love the PS2 and the old Sega stuff best.
Dreamcast, Sega Saturn, wew.

I play xbox 360 and ps2, although i play the ps2 only like 5% of the time. I play xbxo 360 bc its the best witht he best games. Systems can only be bad to ppl if that person doesnt like the game. So if you say the xbxo 360 sucks thats nto true, the game just isnt to your liking. Call of duty 4 is amazing esp since im int he top rankings not bc i play to much, but bc im good when i play. I dont like halo 3 bc i get so sick and tired of playing with ppl who suck. its so anoyying playin a game and someone goes like 5 kills and 30 deaths. Assassins creed was amazing but i havent played it since i beat it. I cant wait for Fable 2, Fable tlc for reg xbox was a masterpiece but a lil short. For ps3 the only good game is gonna be FF 13. Haze looks good but its been annnounced that its gonna be for xbox 360 as well. Metalgearsolid i never played and since playin brawl i have no intention. oh and 360 and pc are gettin Left 4 dead. Ps2 i only liked FF 10 and dragonball z games, dragonquest and right now thats all that comes to mind.
