    I'm not sure they push more boundaries, but Sony definitely had a bit of a purple patch.
    Agreed.
    I like the fact that they keep on announcing something new. Every year there is something fresh to try. This time round we have Puppeteer and Rain coming up, Tearaway sounds promising, and of course the more heavyweight The Last Of Us and Beyond. Just heartening to see that this is their approach to things.

    Super Mario Sunshine was far better than Mario 64.

    @darkmorgado I still think mario64 is vastly overrated. A great game no doubt, but one that has aged far more than sunshine. Mario64 is more important but I would play sunshine over it every time.

    @RobTheBuilder

    I wouldn't say that Mario64 was overrated at the time when it first came out. But it's certainly been bettered many times over.

    Mostly by other Mario games.

    Sunshine had the retro levels which were awesome. I'd happily play a mario game on the 3ds or something that was made up of only those retro-style sort of levels.

    Super Smash Brothers is a game of precision and skill.

    @Trowel a great game... But I'm not fully supportive of that opinion!

    Wrong. I've played pretty much all of them and left underwelmed after the fanboys claimed they are the second coming.

    Uncharted - Good graphics but extremely average gameplay. I honestly think PS2 could handle the gameplay.

    God of War - Same repetitive gameplay, press square until you see the credits. Story is pretty much Kratos getting angry and smashing everything in his way. yawn.

    Heavy Rain - It should be call QTE The videogame. Loved the story but theres very little gameplay. I wish I rented instead.

    And those are the best titles. Then you have shit games like Infamous 1 and 2, Haze and Lair.

    Yeah PS3 exclusives are amazing...not -_-
    Seeing as the PS2 (and the other consoles from the same generation) are home to some of the best gaming experiences of all time, your point about Uncharted is kind of pointless.

    God of War - play it on hard and see how far you get with that tactic.

    I didn't like Heavy Rain, but played a bit of it as it was different at least.

    What about stuff like Wipeout, Motorstorm, Ratchet and Clank, Jak and Daxter, Journey, the PixelJunk games, Stardust HD, Valkyria Chronicles, Disgaia 3, 4, Demon's Souls, Everybody's Golf... if you can't find something in there that floats your boat then you should probably find a new hobby.

    I haven't played it, but it has absolutely no appeal to me, and I love weird abstract games like that.

    I'm sure it's good, but I don't see myself ever thinking it's amazing as everyone always says it is.

    Well obviously you don't or it would have some appeal.

    You obviously love a different sort of weird abstract game.

    Its pretty and serene, but then again so is the local park. The gameplay just wasnt there for me and i just dont get what is so special.

    I will give it another try but im about an hour and a half in and havent put it back on for ages. Flower was a similar experience for me as well.

    Great game, but in truth it felt like half a Mario game padded out with loads of annoying and glitchy levels. Mario 64 was much more consistent overall, imo. Guess it's a matter of preference though - I loved Sunshine because it really felt like you were on an exotic tropical holiday.

    Second one is also good but starts far too slowly.

    Just wish there was more (along the lines of Tearaway) on the Vita. E3 is ages away...

    Yeah. When I get bored I often go do something I think is boring.

    Trophy hunting and going out of your way to get 1000g gamerscores in stuff is just tragic, for sad cunts and is embarrassingly spergy.

    More so if you don't actually like the game.

    Read a book, go for a walk, write an essay on how fucking abysmal your life is that you have to cheevo hunt "Mediocre-Dungeon-Hack-Hack-Man 3" when you're bored rather than doing pretty much any fucking other thing.

    I think Achievements can be well implemented. When done well they make an enjoyable game a little more so.

    However, people that go out of their way to scoop up easy achievements on really shit games they don't enjoy at all to somehow justify themselves as a 'better gamer' than all their mates are sad as fuck.

    Also, 'collect 3000 of these' achievements are fucking horrendous and anyone bundling them into their game to feign longevity should be culled.

    I don't think there are really any good achievements. I played Metal Gear Solid and FFVII a hundred different ways without ever needing a reward for doing so. It was just another fun way to play.

    If you need an achievement to make you do something in a game, it probably not much fun.

    Achievements are useful to help make poorer games feel more rewarding. Plus there is something nice about the idea of rewarding your skill across your collection.

    I think they are a great idea spoilt by idiots who obsess over them.
