So before you read and comment, two things.
- This is meant to be a positive. Even if you're comparing X with Y and coming to the conclusion that you were wrong about X being better try to keep it more about how Y is great.
- Please don't turn this into a flame thread. It really is just about how us gamers can believe one thing and only to be wrong, (but happily wrong), when actually given the opportunity to play/use the item.
I have to eat some crow about one thing I've always argued about, The PS3 vs. 360... controller. I've always thought that the PS3 controller was at least as good as, if not better, than the 360 controller. Every time I've used a 360 I just though it was too heavy and a bit weirdly proportioned. I went as far as to try and hook up my PS3 controller to my PC to play a game using it despite the fact I had a spare wired 360 controller. After failing to get it to work properly I finally had to just suck it up and use the 360 controller. So basically from the time I finished building my PC to when DS4 fix came out for PC I was exclusively using the 360 controller. It wasn't until I started playing a co-op game with a friend that I really even picked up a DS3. It just felt bad. The DS3 felt cheap, flimsy, the sticks felt too lose and the triggers just were awful. It made me realize that I was wrong. It wasn't a preference thing. The PS3 controller is not good. Especially after having used the DS4 a lot it really hammers home how bad it is.
I was wrong about Zelda: Wind Waker. You've heard the story from multiple people so no point in re-telling the same story from my perspective. I'll add that I owe a friend for letting me not miss out on this game.
I was wrong about Batman: AA. It had all the makings of a failure. Licensed game. Maybe delayed a year. (Pachter said WB cost themselves a lot of money by not releasing the game when Dark Knight was out). Also the developer was saying that they hadn't figured out the combat until late, real late into development. I dismissed and didn't even click anymore articles on it. Then the Game Informer review was released. I think a 9.5 from them. So I bought it and as you know it is one of the best games of the generation. If it didn't come out when Uncharted 2 and Assassin's Creed 2 came out it would've been the runaway GOTY.
What have you guys had to eat your crow about? (Gaming wise).
