Ico, Rez and Super Monkey Ball

I mean, much as I love all three games, their neverending cameos in all topics of conversation has become boring. Boring, boring, boring. For example:

'When's Donkey Konga out?'

'Dunno. But Ico, Rez and Super Monkey Ball are sooooooooo good.'

And so on.

I'm saying that the past is far richer than three, early 21st C. games.

Yeah, course it is. But isn't it better to have some common reference material that nearly everyone has played/experienced? It's no good going on about how modern platformers are crap compared to Rocket:Robot on Wheels for instance when not many people have played it, nor are likely to.

No, it's not better.

It's better to come at a topic with one's own take. We don't all need to have the same level of expectations, nor do we need to share the same ideals about what makes a game great.

Ah, I see what you're getting at. I was talking in a more game referencing way (eg "What's game X like? Well it's kinda like game Y." That kinda thing) But yes, I agree that we should all approach gaming on our own terms. It's what I always do, anyway, hence my championing of Galleon recently against bitter aggression from other forumites.

Seeing as Halo was mentioned, I for one think we need a Halo 2 folder in the games folder: it would stop the multiple threads relating to the game opening up and come release, would still be relevant for some time after.

But what do I know? It's an idea that'll no doubt get no support despite it making a hell of a lot of sense.

What I'm saying is that any game can provoke discussion, irregardless of quality.

There is no ultimate triumvirate of gaming. Reselection is pointless.

^_^ irregardless

reselection? :D

i'm sorry, but this all strikes me as pretty silly, and the morbidity and nonsensicality of your vocabulary kindled my candle.

I must have missed that thread.

Seems a case of creating your own paradigm only to try demolish it.

The odd thing is all three games, whilst being excellent, are hardly leaders in their fields, what's more their fields aren't really that important. They're just games that many of us have a soft spot for.

Halo, WE/PES and, er, PGRII are all more important as 'frames of reference'.
