What you played from 2013 Empty
PostSubject: What you played from 2013   What you played from 2013 EmptySun 25 Aug 2013 - 14:35

There's always talk of what console is best, or what game in a series but now and again best year in gaming is brought up.

I'm personally a fan of 2007. A lot of things happened news wise like sega and nintendo working together to bring us the 1st game with sonic & mario in which was the Olympics games.

But we got the following games, which were notable releases (or I just like):

Hotel Dusk: Room 215
Crackdown
Peggle
MotorStorm
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2
God of War II
The Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles
Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars
Super Paper Mario
Pokémon Diamond and Pearl
Odin Sphere
Forza Motorsport 2
Tomb Raider: Anniversary
Dirt
Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition
Pokémon Battle Revolution
The Darkness
Ninja Gaiden Sigma
Mario Strikers Charged
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3
Sam & Max Season One
BioShock
Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
Blue Dragon
Wild Arms 5
Stranglehold
Heavenly Sword
Skate
Eternal Sonata
Sonic Rush Adventure
Halo 3
The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass
Project Gotham Racing 4
Folklore
The Orange Box
Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure
Battalion Wars 2
Naruto: Rise of a Ninja
Manhunt 2
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn
Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games
Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga
Super Mario Galaxy
Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles
Assassin's Creed
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
Mass Effect

Some absolute classic there, but reason i bring this topic up is this year seems just as good or better. There's two new consoles coming, we've had the likes of Tomb Raider, Ni No Kuni, Last of Us, Bioshock Infinite, Pikmin 3, Fire Emblem Awakening just to name a few with some more hopefully great games to come this year in Pokemon X&Y etc. So is this year the best or has there been better, I know likes of 1997 had Final Fantasy VII, Tekken 3 but hard to remember though as i was 7.

I remember that issue of NGamer that reviewed each year in gaming since the new millennium. Good times, great memories.

~

Looking back, 2007 was ridiculous, wasn't it? However, I'd actually put forward 1998 as being the greatest year in gaming. Amongst others, 1998 saw the releases of...

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Banjo-Kazooie
Resident Evil 2
F-Zero X
Metal Gear Solid
Grim Fandango
Half Life
Street Fighter Alpha 3
Tekken 3
Gran Turismo
Pokemon Red/Blue
Sonic Adventure
Yoshi's Story
1080 Snowboarding
Tomb Raider III
Turok 2: Seeds of Evil
Ridge Racer Type 4
Spyro The Dragon
WCW/NWO Revenge

...and a load of others. Amazing. 2001 is a shout as well. Could 2013 be another?

Yeah 1998 does look like a good year, maybe better than 2007 even.

I always go with 2007 as my go-to best year in gaming. It was my favourite time to be a gamer, at least, what with loving my Wii and experiencing the Xbox for the first time. Good stuff.

For me it's either 2009 or 2010. These were the years that sold me on getting a PS3 with games like Assassin's Creed 2 and Uncharted 2.

This year hasn't been great for me. The 3DS has been going great guns, true, but the Wii U is still stuttering, even if it's slowly getting into its stride now. It's down to X/Y and SM3DW if it wants to compete with the greats...

Phillips did have a good shout with '98, and I'm not sure I can give anything better myself without researching. '97, with SM64, MK64 and Lylat Wars, was another good one. Also, there are a few games that would have made good years all on their own: TTYD, Metroid Prime, and Twilight Princess are some such.

Good shout's but I'm thinking gaming as a whole Balla, Like you said 3DS has a had a great year whist Wii U having a iffy one, so Nintendo this is so-so but I'm thinking like I said as whole. Even if you've not played or going to play a Bioshock Infinite but you must realizes how big that game is, same with me GTA V doesn't bother me but I know that a huge game, so when we look back at this people will go it had GTA V that year . So if the question was what was best year for Nintendo it could be likely be 1997 with the games you said.

I understand that, but this is personal subjective opinion, correct? And for me personally and subjectively, gaming and Nintendo are synonymous. I don't give two figs for TLoU, however great it may be. If I were trying to give an objective opinion, then maybe I'd speak differently. But I'm not!

I did say good shout though and I know your pretty much solely a nintendo gamer, so understand your choice and opinion. But I was trying to give a objective opinion with my pick of year, I couldn't really care less about Super Mario Galaxy but know how important it was hence why I brought it up in my list of games of 2007 which I still think is a great year due to Mass Effect and Bioshock. But didn't want to go 2007 just because of those two game's or Any other just for one or two things.

I went subjective with mine - just so happens 2007 is also a good shout for an objectively good year too.

I'd've said 2007 as well, though 2008 saw Smash Bros Brawl, Mario Kart Wii and, most importantly, The World Ends With You, all of which kept me happy for a very long time. Probably some more games, too. There tends to be more than three released in any one year.

2008 is a very good year too: TWEWY, Fallout 3, Left 4 Dead, Brawl, GTA IV, MGS IV, Lost Odyssey, DMC IV, MK Wii, Persona IV, Gears of War 2... Damn, I'd probably go for 2008 now.

That's a lot of pages, does anyone still use the old place. I never did (apart from 3DS birthday vote, which i was invited to vote in) but just curious.

Nope.  It merged with CVG, and no one's touched it since.

And as you know, it is the second best RPG on the DS as voted by GNamer (AND ONLY THE SECOND Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil ), up against some stiff competition.

Yeah, it's been blown up into chunks and merged with CVG. It's a pretty horrid mess.

Second here, first forever in my heart. Aww! 

You'd probably be able to pick it up on the cheap Mas.

This thread has given me an idea for another thread - one where we spend a month pretending that it's that same month but a different year, i.e posting about September 2003 next month, and talking about news and game releases as if we were actually rabid gaming fans in that year.

It's £18 on eBay. Sounds a great Idea Jay, you could do like my release thread and news but combine the two and pick a year like 2003 September like you said.

Yeah, that's the sort of idea I'm going for. Sort of a cross between a news/release thread and a game-specific thread, where we'd talk about playing through a retro game as if it was brand new.

Good stuff. Smile 

I'll probably fire up the first edition on September 1st. I'll have a look through the years and find an interesting September for us to peruse.

Am I too late to join in with the TWEWY love-in? It's possibly my favourite game of all-time. I haven't played it in a while (I lost the cartridge some time back) but the level of adoration I gave it back in the day I have never since matched. Make a point of playing it, please.

So this was originally about which is the best year in gaming which Jay has turned into a great topic looking back at certain years. Then this seemed to become a love in for TWEWY (watching a eBay auction).

I still think this year will be one of the best for gaming, I was looking at some of the older topics on here and noticed the Favorite PS3 topic and how that could be quite different now with the likes of Ni No Kuni & Last of Us appearing on that system. So i want to discuss what games have you played this year (came out in 2013) and what your still looking forward.

I personally played the following:
DmC: Devil May Cry                 PS3 Finished the story
Ni no Kuni                              PS3 Got 35hrs in but got stuck
Fire Emblem Awakening            3DS Finished and most of the DLC
Tomb Raider                           PS3 Finished the story & most of the tombs
God of War: Ascension             PS3 Done about 3 chapters awful game
Lego City Undercover               Wii U Finished story
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate         Wii U Played about 11 hrs mainly online
Need for Speed: Most Wanted U Wii U Got 3 or 4 MW races to go
Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon         3DS Did the 1st Mansion, didn't get on with it
BioShock Infinite                      PS3 Finished the story, my current GOTY
HarmoKnight                           3DS I've done 1 level
Injustice: Gods Among Us          PS3 Finished the story
Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D 3DS I've done one world
Grid 2                                     PS3 Done 1st season awful racer
Animal Crossing: New Leaf          3DS Not played for a while
The Last of Us                         PS3 Finished the story
New Super Luigi U                    Wii U Why did I buy, didn't even play
Game & Wario                          Wii U Just bought not played yet
Project X Zone                        3DS Done a level
EarthBound                             Wii U Not Played
Pikmin 3                                  Wii U Finished story but not 100%, done all missions
Mario & Luigi: Dream Team         3DS Barely Played
Attack of the Friday Monsters!   3DS Barely Played
Mighty Switch Force 2              3DS Barely Played
DuckTales: Remastered             Wii U Played for 20mins
The Wonderful 101                   Wii U On operation 4 of 9
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist Wii U Done the opening
Pokémon Rumble U                    Wii U Not sure how long this is but played for a good few hours
Rayman Legends                      Wii U I would say I'm done as much I will do as I can't see me getting 700 or even 400 things

That's the lot, I didn't include any VC games apart from Earthbound due to fact they had all ready been released in EU.
PS3 8, 3DS 9, Wii U 12 (not bad seeing there's no games) a total of 29 game's so far this year.

Personally looking forward to getting these over the next few month's,
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD Wii U
Beyond: Two Souls  PS3 (My last PS3 game sorry I mean movie)
Pokémon X and/or Y 3DS
Sonic Lost World Wii U
Batman: Arkham Origins Wii U
Call of Duty: Ghosts PS4
Driveclub PS4
FIFA 14  PS4
Killzone: Shadow Fall PS4
Knack PS4
Resogun PS4
Watch Dogs PS4
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds 3DS
Super Mario 3D World Wii U

PS3 1, 3DS 2, Wii U 4, PS4 7, So next gen is where I will be playing most. With a total of 14 more games to look forward to and there's a few things planetside 2 which I will give a bash and the stuff on Xbox One I like the look of like Killer Instinct that i won't be buying this year. So 43 games to decide my GOTY, I know what it is at the moment and can't see anything coming out that will change it.

PostSubject: Re: What you played from 2013   What you played from 2013 EmptyThu 5 Sep 2013 - 17:30

Lists!  I love lists.

Past:
Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons (3DS VC) (barely started before my 3DS got stolen.  Maybe one dungeon?)
Luigi's Mansion 2 (finished with all statues, current GotY)
HarmoKnight (finished apart from final final level)
Fire Emblem Awakening (got to about mission five, abandoned)
Animal Crossing: New Leaf (about two months' worth, 80%-full museum and half a dozen Public Works projects, save file lost)
Game & Wario (first five games tried, including a decent amount of Patchwork, then largely abandoned.  The Miiverse game still gets the odd play, and hasn't banned me from Miiverse yet - how're you doing, Busk? Wink )

Present:
The Wonderful 101 (only played two missions.  They're long!)
Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros. (got to the bed quest, restarted due to pinching of 3DS, now back in Mushrise Park)
Earthbound (Wii U VC) (currently in Twoson.  Haven't played it for a while, but I will get back to it!)

Future:
Rayman Legends (all right, I'm getting it!)
Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HAYEE DEFINISHUN (maybe, possibly after a price cut)
Pokémon X (GotY contender?)
Legend of Zelda: a Link Between Worlds
Super Mario 3D World
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
Bravely Default: Flying Fairy

Got my eyes on a few downloadables too, but I don't know which ones are being released this year.
