  • Got Game? Let the battle continue!

    We had the battle of the consoles earlier on the forum, which closed with no outright winner. What was purely a sample of the greater console battle showed us that the PS3 and the Wii are highly rated.

    Itís time to talk about the actual titles that keep gamers glued onto the seats in their living rooms. Good exclusive titles have helped influence the gaming consoles people would like to buy. NBA Jam was to be a Wii exclusive and now it will be coming to the PS3 and the Xbox 360 as well. Metal Gear, which has been well known for its popularity on the Playstation will also be developed for the new Nintendo 3DS. Itís good to hear some exclusives showing up across the different platforms.

    But Iím sure PS3 owners would love to play Splinter Cell conviction on their machines, Xbox owners would love Heavy rain and Wii owners may like to see Little Big Planet. Likewise, some would like to play Mario other than on the Nintendo. That is just a thought though.

    The real question is who has the best exclusives. Which console do you think has the better exclusives? What are your top exclusive games?

    Lol, well I won't even answer the main question since it's obvious what I'd say but I will admit that I wish conviction would come to the wii, I love splinter cell! But that one is also on the PC anyhow so maybe one day I'll upgrade my graphics and get it. In that sense it's not a true exclusive.

    Metal gear never was a PS exclusive, the rights have always been with konami and it originally appeared on some antiquated console and the NES and gameboy colour. Plus the first two MGS games appeared on the gamecube and xbox respectively. But it'll be nice to see MGS3 remade on the ds. I think it's only third party exclusives you'll ever see jumping over. You'd never see Halo on a Wii or Metroid prime on the PS.

    We should have a list of all time best games according to us.
    Mine would be as follows:
    PC: No one lives forever 1 and 2, Commandos (all except strike force), Hidden and dangerous 2, Splinter Cell Series, Rise of Nations. (there are plenty of other fps games I've played but none stick out especially, I like being sneaky! :-) )
    Console: Pikmin, Starfox Adventures and Assault, Paper Mario series (especially thousand year door), Metal gear solid series, Mario Galaxy 1 and 2, Super Smash bros, Battalion wars.

        I play the "Meuse Crossing" and "GJS" mods of Close Combat V on the PC most of the time. How's that for "exclusive"?

              Yes i agree singstar is probably crap, but who cares because 90% of wii's gamebase is based on the same principle Also I am happy that the above mentioned games will not be ported (please please please) as I got bored just reading the titles of it.:p

                Haha Well oddly enough I have tried and sold all of those PS exclusives in the past, ratchet and clank, jak and dexter and dog of war. I tried, they sucked, I sold! :-) Ratchet and clank is basically a starfox rip off anyhow, talking space characters, even down to the multiplayer mode.
                So in a sense you're right, i never will enjoy them.
                And just cause you never heard of it doesn't mean it's not good. You would probably actually seriously dig some of those if you tried them. Metroid prime is a brilliant first person action game, pikmin is a quirky real time strategy, f zero and wave race - brilliant racers, skies of arcadia, fire emblem and tales of symphonia, all RPGs, eternal darkness - survival horror. And if you're into any kind of beat em up games then you have to try super smash bros. Tell you what, I've tried some of your PS exclusives in the past, you hook up a nintendo 64 emulator and try some of their versions of those games and see if you get my meaning. The 64 is the same age as the PS1 so the graphics suck but the gameplay is still in tact. Or better yet buy the gamecube I'm selling on the weekend specials and I'll throw in a copy of Super mario sunshine. PLay it for a week and see if you still hate nintendo so much! :-)

                    You're talking to a guy who wrote his own games for the Zx spectrum, after I found one at the secondhand shop. I was about 14 at the time, so no, graphics are not really the highest priority in my book. Gameplay first, then charm, then interesting characters, then some form of plotline and only then, graphics. It can be beautiful but if it's a bad game, it'll be a beautiful piece of rubbish, no matter what console it's on.

                    Anyhow getting back to the topic at hand, the games from the other consoles I'd most like to try one day would probably be:

                    Little big planet (PS3)
                    Splinter Cell conviction (xbox)
                    MGS 4 (PS3)
                    HAlo 3 (xbox)
                    and maybe killzone 2, the first was about the closest I've seen to a decent FPS game on a console, but still worse than the PC.

                    Oh and don't forget buzz and singstar... haha

                      Yes yes buzz & singstar maybe stupid titles, but wii have loads to offer in that department.

                      Top 10 Most Ridiculously Stupid Wii Games Aggrogate
                      Quote from the site "The Nintendo Wii has been a paradise for shovelware developers. Lots of appeal among "casual gamers," lots of attention in the media, lots of potential for gimmicky bull**** make for a platform that's ideal for every publisher with a terrible license or stupid idea." Point made:D
                      Anyway as for other console games I would like to play would definitely include Halo, Gears of War, the new Splinter Cell.
                      O yes not to forget the popular Pokemon

                        Lol. Yup sadly the family appeal of the wii attracts a lot of trash. I want the lolcat game, that looks rocking!

                            Some more good exclusives for the wii are : Spore Hero, SSx BLur, Soulcalibur legends, No more heroes 2, sin and punishment and the wii version of prince of persia, the forgotten sands is apparently different to the others, and higher rated. :)

                              that doesn't make it exclusive, its a different part of the series, exclusive is when its only produced for one console ONLY that includes the whole series

                              wii version of prince of persia, the forgotten sands is apparently different to the others
                              made for wii - means its much easier and looks like LEGO designed the game - meaning children will like it more, I like to see this review as most sites get paid
