Little Big Planet Vs. Spore?

#1 Posted by Sedarati (117 posts) -

there are some similar ideas and content which game will be the most fun though?

#2 Posted by SarazinRuin (161 posts) -

Spore will be more popular but LBP looks awesome as well.

LBP won't be on the PC, so I have to go with spore.

The Creature Creator is just so awesome, it blows my mind to chunkie bunkies!

I will definitely be buying both on release day, though I reckon LittleBigPlanet will be better. I love platformers, so LBP is a dream come true for me.

Spore most likely, but both look set to deliver the user-generated and integrated experience everyone is lapping up. Spore will indefinitely sell more though, as I'm sure everyone who's played The Sims will be queueing up to buy it on release. All the PS3's in the world couldn't compete with that =P

Spore looks like a game you could lose yourself for hours in
Creating creatures and ruling the galaxy is best described as pure win
Littlebigplanet looks brilliant too, the multiplayer creation and 'co-ompetition' means fun on the bun
Both deserve respect for trying to empower anyone and everyone into creating something for the game

Two very different but very good ideas.  I simply don't feel right in comparing them.

Little Big Planet focuses on creating levels and customizing your sackboy or girls.  It seems to be very deep and very detailed but it doesnt have the appeal of a Spore nor does it have the luxury of being on the biggest platform in the world the PC.

Think about this.  when you log into spore for the first time every creature you encounter will be created by someone from the community.  You can check the evolution of your creature from the sporepedia.  You'll be able to visit the galaxy's and planets of your friends.  This list could go on and on, but in a nutshell the very essence of spore is that every creature you come in contact with will have been created by someone just like you and that's huge in refrence to community gaming.

At this point I can't really tell. Both look equally awesome, but I foresee LBP having more appeal to the masses, maybe more so because it's on a console. But then again like HipHopHitler said up there, perhaps the majority of Sims players will flock to Spore. I just know that I plan to get both. :)

I'm more excited to play Spore.

#11 Posted by wildsquid (10 posts) -

Both are going to be amazing.  LBP will be better over all because of the onilne multilayer apect which Spore lacks .

#12 Posted by dum41 (30 posts) -

In my opinion, LBP looks more fun, because of the multiplayer aspect. Jumping around a level on a hand made tank for skateboard with 3 other dudes? AWESOME.

And in terms of creativity, I think its really hard to tell. Spore is on the PC which is a creative bumch, but LBP has more creation options, whereas Spore is just creatures. We shall see.

I think Spore will have greater longevity whilst LBP will have a quick start thanks to the legions of PS3 fanboys getting a bit over excited.

#14 Posted by Charles (103 posts) -

I'm excited about both games, but I don't think I would compare them.

#15 Posted by Wade_Wilson (30 posts) -

There are similar ideas but their executed much more differently.

#16 Posted by Otacon (2255 posts) -

I'd say I'm slightly more excited about spore but I'm definatly getting both.

#17 Posted by WilliamRLBaker (4941 posts) -

Neither, Spore doesn't appeal to my tastes and neither does LBP.

#18 Posted by myzticaznfool (70 posts) -

I will definitely get both games, I see spore being the better game because Will Wright is behind it and that dude is crazy.

#19 Posted by suneku (3005 posts) -

I think Spore will be more fun because of the MMO environment... but LBP is still going to be fun

#20 Posted by WorldsFastestShrimpPeeler (469 posts) -

I'm going to go with LBP.

#21 Edited by Tyrant3000 (21 posts) -

I really don't care. I'm going to play both. I think im going to play Spore first and finish the story mode, than play LBP forever.

#22 Posted by hongkim (9 posts) -

i think littlebigplanet will be better, mostly cuz i have a PS3 and cuz my PC isn't optimized for gaming past 2004...

#23 Posted by epic_pets (1345 posts) -

Little big planet will be funner

#24 Posted by Snipes424 (134 posts) -

I will be getting both, but I think Spore will sell more, but I am much more excited for LBP

#25 Edited by pause422 (6275 posts) -

I hope both games do well, there is a ton of potential for some really crazy,awesome shit without a doubt in both titles.

#26 Posted by Sentry (4198 posts) -

Totally different styles of play, but I would still have too choose LBP (just my taste). But man does Spore look amazing.

#27 Posted by Tovan (654 posts) -

I think I'll enjoy Spore more just because of the variety of game mechanics in it, LBP seems great as well, but I can see myself playing Spore longer.

#28 Posted by Daanienator (204 posts) -

I think Spore will sell more because there are more PC owners and it will also come to the Wii and DS. and LBP is an exclusive.
From what I've seen of both games, I like LBP more.

Spore for singleplayer
Littlebigplanet for multiplayer
Thats my verdict

#32 Posted by Nik_NYG (575 posts) -

Spore looks a bit boring to me. LBP looks like endless fun.

#33 Posted by pwnmaster3001 (91 posts) -

its hard to compare the two... one is a mega editing tool the other is make something and watch it grow like a sea-monkey!!! im excited for both but i'll choose...LittleBigPlanet cause COME ON...Sony fanboy here!

#34 Posted by WiFiPirate (184 posts) -

Little Big Planet has my interest over SPORE. I will probably get both but LBP will suck up most of my time i am sure.
