I feel it is.
Better graphics. Better space to hold more story lines. Etc.
Super smash was great, PS2 and XB had some amazing titles. But in the end, in terms of gaming, newer is USUALLY better (Not to be confused with Final Fantasy, where it gets worse as it goes )

My basic complaint , less japanese games these days. This not me being upset cause western games taken over , its more about I feel like Western gaming would be fine even if we had a more Japanese dominant market. Because I feel like the western market was just fine when it was just the Pc Market , Pc had their own section and always have been strong , and the japanese games would always be around on the console. But it doesnt seem like the case now , its seems like the western games are on everything and japanese games seem to be slowly ousted more and are stuck on portable consoles where the majority of the market isnt at.

Better.

Only games that seem to be getting worse imo are FPS.

Which do you prefer Resident evil 1 remake and Re4 (older) or Re 5 and Re6 (newer of course)?

I can't say I'm too interested in most games coming out on the non-portable consoles. I feel like the scene has kind of moved or spread out into other places, and we're treating some of the new markets with the same snootiness that certain old English professors would treat comic books and sci-fi novels in the past.

The worst thing we have now are the elitist-console-gaming-master-race, which seem to be replacing the voices of the elitist-PC-gaming-master-race. Very creepy.

Its not really about snootiness ,its about getting less games cause a certain part of the market is dieing out. Im pretty sure the big western gaming companies will be around for a long time they have the funds to keep going on , Its not likely microsoft will go bankrupt overnight.

This gen is much worse. Modern games just don't have any heart.

The current gen always has been, and always will be worse than the previous one. If you think about previous generations, you think pretty much only about the good ones, and forget about the bad ones. Then, you figure, how many years of games you're taking those good games from, and when you think about current gen, you think about pretty much the most recent or the biggest ones and not necessarily the best ones. Plus there's the nostalgia factor, when you were just a dumb kid, whatever game you had was awesome, but now you can look at things more objectively. Nostalgia goggles are a powerful thing. There are probably a ton of games that you think are awesome because you loved them as a kid, but if you were to play them for the first time today you'd see how bad they actually are.

I can think of a lot really great games that have been made recently, some with huge budgets from huge companies, and some from indie devs with less than spectacular graphics. Now, if you only play Japanese games then, yea, this generation sucks, and that's because the money is controlled by a bunch of old people that think they know what Americans want.

Most of my favorite games come from the last gen and thats only because the gamer community I know and love was lost big time. Games of this gen are still awesome, but I miss the good old community </3
