    Oh, I worry about the negs that these sorts of threads always get but...

    I find xbox and ps3 games to be a dumbed down version of PC games

    and a game with swords in is infinitely better than a game with guns.

    2011 was the worst year for gaming I've ever seen.

    Nothing special except for Portal 2... so many bitter, bitter disappointments. Skyrim was amazing at first but then became very dull.

    Ratchet and Clank is the greatest platforming franchise in history.

    Do you think you have any gaming opinion(s) that could be considered unpopular or even 'controversial'?
    Runescape was quite good for what it was intended in its day.

    And heeeeere we go:

    Heroes of Might and Magic 3 is the greatest game to ever grace this planet.

    Timesplitters 2 was better than Goldeneye.

    The only stealth game to ever do it right was Thief.

    MMO's (The Old Republic etc) are almost exclusively terrible and only hurt innovation in gaming.

    Age of Empires II is the best RTS game ever.

    Minecraft is crap.

    The two Souls games (Demon's Souls / Dark Souls) are the best games in the last few years.

    Assassin's Creed needs to STOP releasing a game every bloody year and concentrate on making the combat good, because it's terrible.

    Pro Evolution Soccer 6 is far and away the greatest football game ever made.

    GTA4 was pretty crap and I'm a little worried about how 5 will turn out.

    PC is almost always the best platform to play on when possible.

    Nintendo has not been good for a LONG time, they continue to rehash old games with the same characters and very few (if any) new ideas.

    Neither Battlefield or Call of Duty have any credibility left as gaming franchises, they've both hit their all-time lows.

    Jak and Daxter is the best platformer on the PS2 (already said, but christ it's so true).

    Tomb Raider 1 was the best in the series, 2 is just behind.

    Battlezone (1998 game) is by far the most under appreciated game of all time.

    I think the Final Fantasy series is very overrated.

    I strongly dislike any Call of Duty games

    Imo there hasn't been a decent platforming game since the PS1 days with Crash Bandicoot.

    Agree with most of them, however, Tomb Raider 4 was the best in the series.

    Playing games on a PC are no fun what so ever. Stick your graphics up your arse, I'll take a playstation controller any day.

    I don't think the players of PC gaming actually care about graphics, mate...

    At least I hope not.

    Game like Battlefield, COD, Halo are all the same thing repackaged. All basically consist of the same thing with different guns. It's not a good game repackaged either.

    People who only use a top 3 team in sports games are ****ing ****ers. Same goes for cars in racing games.

    That's all I can think of now.

    Well they shouldn't.

    Lots of games just PLAY better on a PC, not to mention the best exclusives of all time are PC exclusives.

    Gears of War 1 had easily the best online multiplayer ever seen relative to other games at the time, and it was the best till the advent of Battlefield 2 in 2010, and the advent of Gears of War 2.

    If by atmosphere he means 'Immersion' then I guess Amnesia: The Dark Descent?
