At this rate most games will be PS4/5 compatible but we won't actually get the PS5 exclusive swan songs of this generation until right at the end when these things are actually available to buy en masse. By then there will be a PS6 :(
I'm okay with that. Then stuff will be cheaper, hopefully the PS5 will get a revision that isn't so huge and ugly and all the best games come out towards the end of a systems life anyways. It never hurts to always stay a generation behind.

To be honest so am I, I refuse to pay scalper prices just to be 'in it' at the start even though I'd like to be. Plus hopefully the next model of the PS5 does away with it's godawful current design, shit man it's a console not an abstract art piece.

I dont know. How many more God of War, Uncharted or Last of Us games do we really need?

Racthet and Clank looks cool, but there are like 10 Ratchet and Clank games already. Am I strange for not caring that the newest one has super realistic fur effects?

Same thing with Nintendo.


I just want to be wowed again. Nothing wows me anymore. Well, tits wow me. But games, not so much.

Can you use the PSVR for porn?

Check out the Matrix Awakens Unreal Engine 5 demo. Last gen is really holding PS5 back, especially due to the memory limitations. Unless devs start building completely separate games for next gen, you're really not going to be seeing what your $500 truly got you.

Fuck that. Stop making fucking Unreal Engines. Stop making games that involve being a dude and running around in a stupid 3D environment shooting stuff or making story decisions in an oPeN WoRlD . Its over. Its over in 4k , its over in 6k, its over in 20k, its still going to be fucking gay as fuck even when you can see the cunt hair through the chicks underwear on a 200inch screen. Fuck.

Partly is we’re all getting old and have seen it before, and partly its the cost/risk of releasing a game which could flop stifles innovation. Innovation in video games was crazy in the 80s and 90s, but has almost all dried up now short of a few indy titles.

What was the last ‘new’ genre of videogame? Semen on Dreamcast? Even that was a dead end.

Play a game from 2007 and it looks and feels like a game from 2021 except with 4k.

I have to agree, no new games really wow anymore. JRPGs are not as endearing as they were in the SNES era, fighters are... ok. There are some games Im looking forward to like the new Horizon Zero Dawn, and yeah the next GOW (I liked the 'reboot') and of course Elden Ring.

But even those games that I'm waiting for - they've all been done. Open world, standard actioner, etc. There's no feeling of wonder anymore. You're probably right, it may be that we're just getting old madman.

Also, I just *cant get into roguelikes. There is maybe 1 game I didn't mind, Dead Cells, and while I enjoyed Returnal, it started getting really repetitive when I couldn't get past a certain boss, so I stopped playing it. But other than that, roguelikes, stuff like online battle arenas, etc- just boring to me.

I find myself getting irritated because almost every game out there has to be this cinematic masterpiece with cutscenes that last an hour at the beginning of the game. I just want to play the game. I'll figure out what the buttons do. I dont need a tutorial level, and I don't need the *opening level* be a huge movie. Looking at you Guardians of the Galaxy..

I'm still on the fence on whether I want a ps5/Xbox SX or not. Most of the games I play are retro style Indie games that are available on Steam. I do still like Street Fighter and buy the occasional Guilty Gear game when it's on the cheap. I'm not into these huge open world games except for maybe God of War. I really stopped playing first person shooters and those are released on PC anyways. Come to think of it, the only reason I would get a PS5 is for God of War but even that would eventually come to Steam anyways. I guess convenience would be the reason I would want to buy one of these new console's instead of playing the same games on PC.

Haha. Well, you have to keep in mind this stuff isn't made for us anymore. Look at the top gaming videos on Youtube -- The ones I've seen might as well be in a foreign language. This industry is bigger than it was back in our time. It's not like they're going to stop making new consoles and Unreal Engines when there's money to be made. We can try to stubbornly hold on to the past, or just let it go. Personally I play a handful of AAA and smaller new titles each year. I like to keep up with the new stuff a little. I still get excited like a kid at xmas when a new console comes out.

I don't really buy this idea that the nextgen isn't happening because people can't buy the console. The Series X and PS5 have both broken sales records. The truth is if you had the spare $500 and really wanted one, you'd probably have one by now.

There's no reason to own a PS5 right now, just trust me I'm a doctor.

You're right, but my comment is less about nostalgia and the past than it seems. Gaming is fucking stale now and the only people its geared to are autistics and children prescribed to ADHD medications who will play the shit for 12 hrs every day on Twitch. That shit has to end. It's a health concern. It's just a shame that the best developers and artists can come up with are shitty PS1 polygon throwback retro games on Steam. The best the industry can come up with is fucking Elder Scrolls clones. The PS5 serves no real purpose other than for BeTtR GraFix Dude and I honestly dont know what the fuck else. What is actually being improved since PS3 days besides graphics?

Pretty much. But give someone the tools like a new Unreal Engine that can load up an entire city without draw/pop-in or stopping to load, with tiny details being realistically simulated, and maybe someone will come up with something new and novel that also won't interest us old farts.

Meh. I don't think that really benefits a game, nor could it, unless it was some kind of VR MMO or something where you get to fuck stuff in the ass on screen.

But yeah I am getting old in terms of vidya preference , ngl :D

That's the spirit! Maybe not on console, but you know that stuff is coming, if it hasn't already arrived (pun intended).
