Topic stolen wholesale from The Escapist forums. Whatcha gon do about it.

  • I haven't owned a portable console since the Sega Game Gear I got for Christmas when I was eight.
  • One of the biggest deciding factors in me not really wanting an XBox 360 is that the backwards compatibility bugbears mean that I wouldn't be able to play Def Jam Vendetta: Fight For NY on it.
  • I genuinely think that Def Jam Vendetta: Fight For NY is one of the finest fighting games ever made.
  • The only reason I finished Banjo Kazooie is that I paid £40 for the wretched fucking thing.
  • The only RTS games I have ever been any good at at all are the original Command & Conquer and Total Annihilation.
  • I've never played any of the Warcraft games. Or Starcraft. Actually I did play about twenty minutes of WoW before realising I'd had more enjoyable surgery.
  • I thought Metroid 2 was atrocious and Metroid 4 was amazing.
Right guys, what've you got? Let it alllll out.

I'll confess that I couldn't care less about what other people thought about anything.  My opinions are the only ones that matter to me.  I like the genres I like, I'm not a fan of RTS's either, and every game will have people that love it and hate it.  That is all.

  • My last console was a Sega Saturn
  • The only time I considered buying a console after that was when they announced Panzer Dragoon Orta for the Xbox
  • Consider Prince of Persia: Sands of Time the most overrated game I've ever played
  • More than half of my game collection was bought on discount and many of my favourite games come from there
  • First time I've liked the Graphics in the demo for UT3 was when I set them for near minimum
  • Never played any Nintendo game (including Mario, Zelda, and Metroid)
  • First videogame I remember buying was Command and Conquer: Red Alert, and to this day it is the only C&C game I've ever bought.
  • The only RTS I've played regularly online is Defcon. It is also the game I've played regularly for the longest period of time in recent years.

  • I bought a Virtual Boy.
  • I bought a Game Boy Camera + Printer.
  • I've never played SOTN but will eventually after reading that it partially inspired Aquaria.
  • When I was a little kid (younger than age 5) I used to make construction-paper mushrooms and flowers and pretend I was Mario by jumping around all over the place (on top of tables and sofas in my house).  Embarrassed

Ok then, no clue what of this all could be embarrasing but ok..
  • I got and bought the Game Boy Pocket© AND the Game Boy Color©... on the same day, thinking it were 2 different consoles.
  • I'm a hardcore Nintendo fan, have owned almost every console, I did own every popular one.
  • I played only a week with my Xbox, never again after that.
  • I've already spended 2500€+ on my Wii with Games & Accessories
  • I used to skip school lessons to play Super Mario bros. YES the very first. I was addicted...
  • I lied that I finished every Metroid game before cheating with them, I cheated with Metroid 1 and 2 and I never finished Metroid Prime 1 cause my disc broke. After that I didn't feel like playing it ever again.

Ooh, I did take a week off university to play RE4; this was an exceptionally stupid thing to do, as I was something like nine weeks from graduating at the time and had barely started my final project.

  • I avoid MMORPG's because I know I have an addictive personality and would loose it all
  • I spent so long farming chocobos in ff7 that I forgot what the actual game was about
  • if I can't figure out a puzzle then I'll totally look at a spoiler or a walkthrough, then admonish myself and do some suduko or something to make me more clever
  • I garden every day on webkinz and make a crapload of kinzcash
  • often I pause playing a game for a few days when it's at the final boss as I'm sad the game is about to end
  • walked around in a daze for the rest of the day the first time I played mario n64
  • totally love playing girls in dungeon siege
  • didn't know I could ride seahorses in Aquaria until after I got the seahorse armour

  • Consider Prince of Persia: Sands of Time the most overrated game I've ever played

I couldn't disagree more, lol, I consider it to be probably the very best game of all games. It's on the same level as the original Prince of Persia, but even better... Basically it has it all, interesting and cool gameplay, great story and excellent storytelling, enough length for the bucks you pay for it and even some replay value because of all this. It one of the few games I still play actually. I don't play Crysis anymore, don't play Quake Wars anymore, don't play Supreme Commander anymore etc. , I don't play a lot of the 'current' top games anymore. But I do play the Prince of Persia trilogy games still. I also occasionally play Duke 3D and the original Quake 1, definitely games that belong in my personal top 5 of Best games ever.

  • I consider WoW to be the most overrated game ever (probably right about it too, ey? Wink )
  • I believe the Orange Box is extremely overrated
  • ...eventhough I did love Portal
  • I didn't like Crysis because they made the same mistake as they did with Far Cry basically, aliens or mutants: whatever..!?!
  • I consider Silent Hunter 4 and X3:Reunion to be great games
  • I think Bioshock didn't live up to it's hype, eventhough it was pretty awesome (the gameplay was pretty shallow actually and I just wanted another System Shock :p )

Same here, but if people have good arguments... I might change my mind, so basically other people's opinions do matter to me. It's (not impossible but) unlikely that I will follow hypes though, I'm anti-hyped games. Wink

Okay, this is gamer confessions, I think it's about what kind of embarrassing things you've done with consoles when you were a kid or something. Even when you weren't a kid.

Not about how you think about games, that's not embarrassing that's just showing your opinion.

Even thought I agree with PHeMoX, besides the Prince of Persia thing. It was a good game, but it was definitely retarded. The story made everything BUT sense and the psyche of all the people there were fake, itś like watching robots with fake emotions decide.. It was just.. retarded. But VERY good gameplay, much like Prince of Persia 3, a game I truly loved and replayed multiples times.

Same here, and that's all well and good and I'm very happy for you, but that is not what this thread is about.

You mean there was a story?

I'll just redirect you here for a more full opinion of my part.

Man you are entitled to your opinions but that is an extraordinarily whiny review.

That's how disappointed I was with the game. I'm not usually that whiny.
