FFVIII was disappointing in comparison to how good FFVII was at the time.

On the flip side, I bought Aliens Colonial Marines Limited Edition for $20 recently and I'm absolutely floored by how good it is compared to my expectations.

Happens on Mozilla also. I find its because of the comment text box. Seriously how hard is it to clear a damn text box/textarea every time the page is refreshed or a reply is added?

Gameplay > graphics. But then I grew up playing at Arcades, DOS games, 8bit, 16bit...etc.

Whilst graphics were still important back then it always was more about the gameplay.

I'm not a fan of mobile gaming or mobiles in general, I hardly use mine as it is and really dislike the technology and peoples over reliance on it (Whats with everyone looking at their phone every goddamn second, gen-Y & Z especially). I do agree with most of the points laid out by the OP however.

When it comes to mobile gaming you have to consider what the developers are up against and the market. Most people will only play your game for 2 minutes at a time, if at all. They more than likely won't pay anything for it. Couple of months later and then there's damn clones of your game out. How do you make money from that? And when I say money I mean something you can live off when you've put in the effort to make something to earn you a living. Especially if you are just one person making a mobile game that you would like to pay your rent and eek out a morsel of food on your table. Smaller teams is what I'm really arguing for here.

The technology is also limited in what it can do. The interaction between the user and the game is reduced to a touch screen and people only use it during transit or if they have a few minutes where they have to wait in the real world. It's more than likely not going to satisfy people who aren't casual gamers and its pretty hard to create a meaningful experience on this medium due to this. The medium does suit smaller puzzle games or simulator games simply because of how much control you have on it and how you can pick it up very easily from where you left off without too much consequence.

Great write up @koolaid. Don't feel you need to justify what you do on a gaming site. You certainly put up a great argument however its a battle that will never end with a win for either side.

That's pretty great, but holy shit is there a lot of really young children playing CoD :/

Yeah and they can get really aggressive. I don't think its a great idea for kids to be playing these multiplayer shooters.

Well this one, except its really annoying how threads get started here and the OP doesn't even bother to participate or you have to wait 24-8hrs for replies to happen.

Also the notification service doesn't work for the Forums since the redesign which is a shame.

In saying that though I wouldn't want to go anywhere else. People are fairly respectable to each other here.

@flstyle: Yeah I was more correcting myself. :p

EDIT: No head to head league? I think that format goes hand in hand with classic league.

No, Metal Gear Solid wouldn't lend itself to an endurance run very well due to the lengthy cut scenes.

There's no reason why you can't ask her out. Whats the worst that could happen? She says no, so what. At least you tried/know. Going by your OP and what you've been saying it sounds like you're both naturally heading into a relationship of some form. Good luck Falserelic!

I asked out my fiance when I had no job, no car (still don't), and pretty much no money. She still said yes. What the heck was she thinking!?

If she found out I went to a strip club that would be bad.

Only if you were already going out. She shouldn't care otherwise. Ask her out for a coffee and meet her there (saves the not having a car issue). Daytime is usually good as there's less pressure on you both.
