@Dirtbox Wow, I can't agree at all there. (Faulty machines aside)|
This generation hasn't been perfect, but it has given us several of the best games ever made, plus many many excellent titles. Reliable online multiplayer. In addition, the titles from this generation will age a lot slower than those of PS/PS2 era.
Sequels and dying developers have been happening forever. That's hardly a unique problem to this generation. The 16bit generation was brilliant in parts, but was filled with huge software prices (£69.99 for SF2 Turbo, £50 for Mario AllStars) and lots of substandard releases. You also didn't have the longevity of titles, and no online, local multiplayer was often patchy at best.
Sure we have had to wait too long for new hardware, but I can honestly say I have got more fun gaming out of this generation that any before it.
