Those are some really good games. I’m glad Nintendo didn’t throw some shit on there. I never finished Metroid Fusion, I have a chance to now!

@ List of games:

Meh.

None of them really seem all that interesting. Except maybe F-Zero. But aside from that, lame.

Do you have problems? Have you never played Metroid, Yoshi’s Island or Fire Emblem? You might want to check some gameplay videos.

FE? Don’t do turn based games in general just on principle; rarely if ever do strategy games just on principle. Definitely not my style.

Metroid? Not really my style either. Too many puzzles for my taste.

Yoshi’s Island?

… Let’s just say that the best thing I could ever hear while playing any Mario-related game is “TACTICAL NUKE, INCOMING!” and leave it at that.

It’s probably because he only likes FPS and racing games. You’re nuts to not like any of those games. You are not a true nerd. You are a tool.

Aerial combat games, off road open world driving games, modern tactical infantry combat games.

Get it right.

EDIT: And Western-made open world action adventure RPGs.

I see no difference. Because they’re all just so similar. Even if they aren’t a sequel, all racing games are the same and FPS’s just get old fast. And who plays game where the whole point is to fly and kill things unless it is StarFox?

Star Fox is a rail shooter. Ace Combat used to have Squadron Commands, and remains an excellent aerial warfare game. Others like Crimson Skies and Blazing Angels take it a step further, by removing most if not all modern technology such as homing missiles, making the game more difficult since you have to rely solely on your plane’s machine guns.

Not all racing games are created equal. DiRT, MX vs. ATV, Baja: Edge of Control. Take it off the tarmac and into the wilderness to see how I race.

And tactical infantry combat simulators(soldiers sims, to be more concise) are very different from the typical Halo or Call of Duty.

And don’t forget Fallout 3 and Mass Effect. Two of my favorite games this gen. Actual role playing games. With real role playing elements. You heard me.

I prefer the less realistic and go more for the imaginative world. Not something done with regular facts like the mechanics of a vehicle or a weapon. The unrealistic going farther than life itself. It’s just boring to do what you can do in a game that you can also do in real life. And OK, you named two good games. Fallout 3 and Mass Effect. Good job.

As much as I love Ace Combat and Crimsons Skies…..

Go pick up IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 or Lock On: Modern Air Combat: Flaming Cliffs 2 or even Falcon 4.0 Allied Force. Play some REAL aerial combat games.

I understand you may not like the games on offer, but you have to admit Nintendo is trying to put quality games on there.

Myself, I’m much more of a realist. Though I do enjoy the good sci fi tale, like Star Wars, or Crysis. Still, even though I’d rather have a plasma rifle than a spell book, I’d rather have a Kalashnikov than a plasma rifle.

EDIT: @ Phoenix: No thanks, too far to the simulator end for me. I’ll stick with my relatively less complex games, thank you.

Real Role Playing Elements: From Wikipedia: “…involve(s) developed story-telling and narrative elements, player character development, complexity, as well as replayability and immersion.” I think Fire Emblem meets the criteria.

So does Mass Effect, if I’m not mistaken.

EDIT: But at least ME features real time combat and squad commands.

Never implied that. Just stated that there are games out there that I like that feature those things.

I have to note how I always wind up as the target in “one against all” arguments.

It’s getting kind of frustrating to be persecuted for my views like this. Complainers (or in my case, people who are simply different) are not always wrong.

From what I can tell, most of what you have said is a blatant opposition on the general public opinion. It wasn’t justified; it was flamboyant, which makes you come off as obnoxious.

You are not being targeted, you are simply putting a target on yourself. If you don’t want this to happen, please do not be so repugnant in the future. Thanks.

Oh my, Haxor. You had ALMOST gotten rid of that negkrama, then you had to be a bit of a dick in the first part of the thread. Now somebody’s just giving you negkrama no matter what you say. I understand that you like different things, but don’t be in anyone’s face about it.
Also, thread-JUST BECAUSE HE LIKES MILITARY GAMES DOESNT MAKE HIM A FAGGOT. STOP IT WITH THE NEGKRAMA.

Madcat’s the one that really started it. All I said was that I thought the lineup was lame. Then madcat and Kalmo started attacking me for no reason.
