I still find it disheartening that the company that gave us KOTOR has fallen so low
I'm surprised people still play destiny 2 tbh.

1 game I'm currently playing a lot (apart from gta online) is gundam battle operation 2. Its a fremium game on PS4. Who doesn't want to fight with giant robots

I only use steam for humble bundles tbh. Gaming for me is predominantly console based. But yeah, there are load of bundles on steam
Playing on consoles is thousand times better than on emulator or on steam, there is no discussion, but I can't at the moment because the battery has a short circuit. I already plan to invest in a new one.

Are you referring to retro games specifically here, or saying all games are better played on console? :holmes:

Touché!

In my own case it is about retro games, as I almost never played another games on another consoles, but I personally think that a gamer who is used to play on consoles and is grown up with them would feel generally a difference. I do: when I put the cartridge into the console, I can say that I am playing the original game. And the term 'original' changes everything: it is the real game, a game that is like a legacy of time when they where available in the shops to buy. Gamers like me are able to say sooner or later that I was a part of this time and I got all the cartridges they aren't avalaible anylonger. That makes playing on consoles so special.

Oh I agree, when it comes to cartridge format games their original consoles are undeniably the best medium :yep: It just sounded like you might have been implying console was the superior format for any kind of game, which would definitely have been up for discussion

Just to add: cartridge games stand for a generation people were living. In this sense they have even historical meaning: as witness of a period of time, they are items of your life as a gamer. They are the evidence that you experienced the gaming culture at that time! The main reason why this kind of game as you called is the superior one.

What do you think of Genshin anyway? in the trailers and advertising, the game looks very good and arouses joy to play.

Well, for 8 and 16-bit gaming i agree playing consoles are best control wise, but some emulators such as Fusion deliver better quality audio and visuals than TV hook ups.

Okay, I can invest a sum of money in the devices too, but the nostalgia (knockout argument!) can't be paid. And if a new battery works, it is cheaper anyway.

I used help guides / youtube vids when stuck with side quests but apart from that no (also i somehow got platinum of gta5 :lol:). Personally prefer gta online as it gives you more variety in things to do and am looking forward to it coming as a standalone game on current gen systems

Yep, I used the help guides too, but failed after all. So, they had no use for me. You have missed a lot without cheats! never dreamt of drive on water with a car? that is so funny!
