Sony. Nintendo. Microsoft.

Literally no interesting first party games.

Yeah sure you'll get whatever Naughty Dog AAA awesome game or some Zelda with touch screen boomerangs but NO ONE CARES.

Before you start going on about fucking Last Of Us and shit listen to this:

1. Watch Dogs is the new awesome franchise you all know you love. You're excited about it and you want to play it. This is a statement of fact.

2. Blizzard has its own fucking convention. Every Blizzard game is flawlessly crafted and sells infinite copies over time.

3. Electronic Arts is a company that makes all the video games.

4. R* now have a roster of IP's better than all of Microsofts first party properties. What did MS buy when THQ folded? . HOLY SHIT is this debatable!?

5. The most important one of all...

The sleeping dragon who we all thought was dead...

SEGA.

No?

If Sega announced a completely new AAA Sonic title as well as an ECCO THE DOLPHIN 2014 remake...everyone would line up for it everywhere and it would be sold out forever.

Sonic fans are weird and have a sexual fixation with the characters. That's an unbreakable bond and there hasn't even been a good sonic game since Sonic 2.

Microsoft hasn't shown its system yet. Nintendo has always been about it's legacy IPs. Can't say much about Sony until after E3

I was kind of buying your shit until you brought up Sega. Now I know you're joking.

The Last of Us. How could you not even mention it? I'm not even gonna read this.

Why would you do this this to yourself? Why would you bring up Sega?.

You brought this on yourself! May this burn in your mind forever.

I'd be pretty happy if this were the case. Even though I can (and probably will) buy both new systems, I would love it if the best games were non-exclusives. Heck, I'd love it if all games came out on PC, to be honest...

You had me until the whole Sega thing. Would I really want a new AAA Sonic game? No I would not thank you. Never played Ecco so also not interested. Unless you do a gritty crossover where Sonic is a bloodthisty hedgehog who murders dolphins and Ecco has to get revenge for Sonic killing his family.

Isn't Quakecon id's own convention?

#12 Edited by Rorie (2886 posts) -

@believer258: You have to kind of wonder about the future of Quakecon given id's recent release history and their buyout by Bethesda. It's a lot of money to put on a convention and I kind of doubt Rage was exactly hugely profitable for Bethesda...

oh give him a break. He obviously forgot to put the "2" after Adventure. Right?

I'm confused, outside of the new Infamous and Killzone, have any new first party games been announced for the next generation? Also, who cares if all third party games end up being better than first party? Is this a big deal for anyone? Also SEGA releasing a triple A Sonic? C'mon son!

#17 Posted by Cold_Wolven (2219 posts) -

Anybody who thinks Sega can just come out with a Sonic game and suddenly be awesome as well as Ecco the Dolphin (seriously?) has lost their marbles. While I will agree that 3rd parties together can come out with more and better games than either the big 3 manufacturers no single developer/publisher can trump them especially when games like GTA come out once every 4-5 years.

i just bought a time machine and i'm bringing 1999 sega into the present to rock your collective worlds.

#19 Edited by Seppli (10251 posts) -

I'm currently replaying Warhammer 40k Space Marine, because my Dark Arisen copy still hasn't materialized (it's sold out everywhere), and despite calling bullshit on the OP, I agree that SEGA has become somewhat of a Dark Horse.

Relic man, it's one of the most awesomest development houses around. Objectively, Relic deserves the RTS crown. Subjectively, WH40k Space Marine is the most awesomest 3rd person shooter of the current generation. As far as I'm concerned, whatever Relic does is likely to rock my world.

I'll be cutting hordes of Orcs in half with my Bolter and Chainsword later today, laughing like a mad Space Viking, and revelling with glee in the awesomeness of being a viscera covered Ultramarine. Peace out!

My uncle works at Evolution Studios and he says you can go eat shit. I also have a brother who works at Japan Studio, a cousin who works at Sucker Punch, and a mother who works at Guerilla Games and they all say similar things about your mouth and feces.

Nope. Sonic Adventure 2 is where the series started declining, although not for the reasons most people think (IE I don't have many problems with the story).

Microsoft are hurting for original titles SO HARD.

Once everyone realizes Halo is kinda boring, MS are going to have to do something drastic.

#24 Posted by Brodehouse (9949 posts) -

I've preferred third party games to first party for a long time. I think Naughty Dog is the only first party studio I'd put in my top ten.

#25 Posted by Dagbiker (6976 posts) -

Jet Force Gemini 2 is going to be a launch window game. Im calling it now, In fact Im so confident Im just going to add it to the wiki.

Since last time Sega rebooted Sonic that turned out great... Glad you have your own opinions, but I disagree with you completely.

Dungeon Keeper 3. Next gen consoles/PC. 2015. That is all.

#29 Edited by Zapbrader (174 posts) -

You can't call Watchdogs a beloved franchise when it doesn't have a single released product. That game isn't anything until it actually comes out, so don't go all high and mighty on it just yet. That would be unwise.

#30 Edited by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -

I wanna live in the future to see if this is all true.
I haven't played any Next-Gen First or Third-party title yet, so I really couldn't say.

I should've just bought that DeLorean and built it into a time machine.

#31 Edited by Humanity (9193 posts) -

I think of this as an awesome thing. I get to keep gaming on my console of choice with the controller I prefer and interface I'm more comfortable with and never miss an awesome game because of exclusivity. I bought a PS3 just so I could play Demons Souls when it was out and ended up with maybe 5 games for that system, which now sits in my closet. No offense to PS3, it has it's own strengths and PSN+ is the bomb, but I feel more comfortable with the 360. So if multi plat games are the new standard I say GREAT.

Is this something that someone actually believes?

Never mind. Nicely done.

It's pretty obvious that Watch Dogs 3 will be a revolution in game design.

#34 Edited by Winternet (8018 posts) -

Wow. You already know all this 6 months before any games for next gen consoles come out. Damn.

There is a lot of opinion stated as fact in this post. You can't possibly believe that the majority of people agree with your opinions right? This has to be a troll post.

Not sure what you mean, im pretty sure I speak for most gamers according to them.

I'm calling malarky now. This is a bad opinion piece with baseless facts, about "most gamers." And its not even a blog.

Its a cake in a toilet.
