Well since the 7th generation (PS3/360/Wii/PSP/DS) is on its way out, I wanted to know how you guys think it held up to the 6th (Dreamcast/PS2/Gamecube/Xbox/GBA).
Personally, I'm not sure how to vote on it. I've seen some steps forward as far as innovation, but I've also seen some gigantic steps backwards in that very same department.
This generation has provided me with moments of great anticipation, but also some big disappointments.
I guess for me it's going to boil down to me getting the most of my games this generation, compared to the last. The answer is not really. The single player experience for me this generation has not been all the memorable. I've played a few games that I was able to get the most out of, but nothing like last generation. 99+ hours was the norm last gen, 1 playthrough at best was what I was squeezing out of this generation.
It's all about the multiplayer now. All about the repeated sequels and generic gameplay. Innovation takes a back seat to sure things, and I personally think the industry has suffered from it. Until internet becomes cheaper, it is just too damn expensive to keep letting single player take 2nd priority to multiplayer. It's actually even getting that way with single player games because they don't want to sell you a complete game anymore, they want you to buy DLC.
Yes, this generation has had some golden moments for me (Bayonetta, Vanquish, Dissidia, Resonance of Fate, Lollipop Chainsaw, Left 4 Dead, GTA V), but it still comes up short for me compared to the last generations.
But this generation did provide some of the best looking chicks the industry has ever seen.
Juliet Starling (Lollipop Chainsaw)
Cordelia (Juliet's sister)
Fang (Final Fantasy XIII)
Tsubaki Amamiya (Gods Eater)
Sakuya Tachibana (Gods Eater)
Chelsea (Phantasy Star Portable 2)
New Lara Croft
I think I'll stop, because otherwise I'll just keep going.
So what do you guys think? About the 7th vs 6th, not the chicks.
