So playing the actual system itself for 15min proves "jack" unless I'm in my living room kicking it back with my favorite brew? That makes a ton of sense.HydrogenElf wrote:Playing it for a few minutes in a non-comfortable context proves jack.
The thing is, the controller is NEAT, but it isn't very FUN or EXCITING. I can see myself getting bored with it quickly. Plus, it wasn't exactly the most precise/easiest controlling controller either. XBOX 360 has brought a lot more to the table than just good graphics. Now you have downloadable demos and videos, and still no need for those homo memory cards. If you've actually played some of the 360's stellar games you'd see the differences in gameplay from the previous gen. In-game movies are amazingly smooth and realistic, loading times on some games are incredibly fast, and the enviroments on some of the games are incredibly detailed/interactive. GOW itself has brought some cool things to the table, with the rifle-saw, unique 3rd person camera, torque bow, and other cool ideas that aren't bland ideas used in every other FPS (or in this case TPS).
This whole arguement is basically new games to enjoy VS new ways to enjoy a game.
