In my opinion it doesn't hold up well (like most early 3D games on consoles... Mario 64 being the exception). It did many things right at the time and if you've played any Zelda game as a child I'm sure you managed to get completely immersed. My young nephew has played a ton of Breath of the Wild already and I am sure that he will remember the game as the best one he's ever played (and objectively speaking the game has a lot going for it).

From time to time there are some great video game commercials which I still watch years after the games have been released. Do you have any commercials/trailers/teasers that you really enjoy watching or which still get you excited for a game?

Here are some of my favorites:

Forza 6:

Cyberpunk isn't out yet, but it's a good example for a trailer that really gets me interested in a game and its world.

I also remember some commercials from my childhood like the Terranigma one but I can't find them anywhere online.

I know what you mean. I'm among the few people (in Europe) who got an original Xbox instead of a PS2 and who also bought a 360 at launch. That said there is really no reason for me to by a Xbox One since it's simply lacking any games that I have to play. I was really excited about Forza Horizon 3, however, since I have a fairly powerful PC I didn't have to bother with the console version.

When they announced Phantom Dust before the launch of the Xbox One I was certain that I would get one. But with all the games coming to PC now there really is no reason for me to buy the console. I did buy a PS4 about a year ago for a couple of exclusives like Bloodborne, Disgaea 5, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Last Guardian, Gravity Rush 2 and so on. Without exclusives Xbox One has no appeal to me. (god how I would love a new and or remastered Phantom Dust)

@itwongo: Shenmue is still very enjoyable. I played though the first game two years ago and Shenmue II last year. Both games require a bit of patience. You'll probably spend two years playing before you really get into the game.
There is no way to progress time in the first game except for waiting in front of your TV (I spent the time in an arcade within the game whenever I had to). This was probably the most annoying aspect of it. Other than that it is very playable and well worth the investment of time and money. It still looks great (via VGA on Dreamcast or component on Xbox) and the soundtrack hasn't aged a day. You'll find that many concepts of within the game made it to other games you've played through the years following Shenmue's release.

God damn it Patrick! I can't even remember the last time I cried, but what kind of animal can read through your Goodbye without tearing up.
Yesterday I quoted you in my final thesis for my university degree, and was really happy about it (Unfortunately it's written in German). I have high expectations of you, and I am hoping, that I will see and hear more of you soon. I had a bunch of ideas about what I would like to see covered by you that I wanted to pitch you - hopefully I still get the chance. Will you still be checking in on the messages that you receive via Giantbomb?
In any case I wish you all the best for you and your family!

Hey folks,

I am studying English and philosophy to become a teacher, and this semester I managed to convince two of my lecturers to let me write term papers about Heavy Rain. Usually my lecturers are more conservative and don't see the appeal of working on video games.

Anyway, the first paper that I am writing is about crime displayed in the game - we read some crime stories during the winter. The other one is about the noir style of the game, as I had a film noir seminar this semester.

My question to you is whether or not you remember cool articles or interviews about Heavy Rain, game noire or other related topics. I don't want you to do my work, but if you have read anything memorable, it would be cool if you could post it here. I already found a bunch of David Cage interviews which are quite interesting.

In addition I would like to ask if you have ever written a term paper about video games. To me it's fairly uncommon and I know of anyone who's studying with me who wrote one.

I am with Alex. The PS Vita is way better than I expected. I bought a DS and PSP when they were released but the mobile gaming experience with the Vita is much more enjoyable for me. I expected to buy the system and play with it for a couple of days, weeks at best, but I already played a few hundred hours, and I am still enthusiastic. Maybe its the better grip, the 2nd analog stick the way psn integrates in the system or whatever, I really like the device. So I am really hoping for new game announcements during E3.
