    A thousand times this. The slow death of split screen is one of the worst things to have happened to gaming.

    I agree with that, you might as well be playing offline with bots for all the difference it makes.

    There are always exceptions though, Gmod has made me literally wet myself laughing online.

    Everything Blizzard has done for the last five years has been complete shit.

    Anything WoW related after vanilla is a dull, boring grindfest with the quest structure seemingly drawn at random from one of five possible choices.

    Starcraft II: Micromanagement for obsessive compulsives, that has no charm or actually strategy involved beyond how quickly you can press the same keys over and over again.

    Diablo III: A tedious chore, dull, insipid and wanked over by fanboys when they not crying over a borked RMAH.

    Modern JRPGs are just shit.

    Half-life 2: Overhyped bloat-fest composed of 99% tedium, 1% crowbar.

    -Quick time events and long cut scenes can be used in extremely effective and enjoyable ways.

    -I'm not sure morality gauges can.

    You know what I'm looking forward to, a trampoline peripheral.

    Game stories are basically a waste of time.

    There was nothing wrong with the old days when you were just jumping onto platforms or shooting people with no explanation. The game wasn't any less fun and nobody complained about a lack of motivating narrative.

    Not to mention, they are all toss. Even the very best one would make a very poor film or novel.

    Metal Gear Solid 3 is the worst MGS. San Andreas is the best GTA. Nintendo have been phoning it in for a good 5 years now. Multiplayer is pointless. People who don't want to pay for games deserve shit games. SWOS 96-97 is still the best football game ever made.

    Gaming is actually in a really good place generally and I feel really positive about it.

    I like pretty much all games and I'm still pretty positive about the future of gaming in general.

    Hey :) I swear I typed this 5 minutes ago and only just posted.

    QFT.

    'Free-to-play' is the pinnacle of everything wrong with games right now. Many games of all types can be boring, have bad controls etc, but only FTP manages to be exploitative, cynical and downright lying within a three-letter acronym. Everyone involved in making such games can sod off.

    /edited for politeness. Somehow FTP invokes my rage button more than anything else in gaming. Including shitty touch-screen d-pads.

    Guild Wars 2 - shit, and just like *every* other MMO out there, with floaty combat and fetch quests.

    Rare never actually did anything that was even slightly good.

    I don't mind the existence of tutorials, but they should be made optional. Let those who just want to get on with the experience have their fun without being taught how to walk.

    Why is multiplayer always online only these days?

    I miss sitting around with mates and beers playing games.

    Japanese games, developers and culture are plastic, empty emo shite.

    MMOs are boring. PlayStation exclusives are sub par.

    3D (as in 3 dimensional models and envirnments, not the shit with the glasses/3DS) hasn't improved games one tiny bit.

    Oblivion & Skyrim both have amazing worlds I'd love to get lost in, but I find it impossible when the combat isn't even as convincing as a 59p Gameloft IOS hack and slash.

    I was asked the other day to bring a console round for Christmas day for my nephews to play. I spent a short while considering my options... and the SNES is now packed up with Super Bomberman.

    Skyrim was shit.

    Fez is average.

    Monkey Island 2 is deeply overrated.

    Tim Schafer couldn't design his way out of a paper bag.

    Peter Molyneux is a genius.

    Donkey kong country is massively overrated

    Grand theft auto 3/VC/SA are boring to play and are hyped up on their technical achievements and world

    There are at least 6 games that used waggle well on the Wii.

    All shoot-em-ups are for wankers only. Throw driving games into that too while at it.

    @Youthist that's borderline between opinion and vendetta...
