PS4 and Xbox 720 need a better quality of games

When we look at this generation of games on the Xbox 360 and PS3 it’s impressive, especially when you compare the graphics to the last generation. Gameplay is a different matter, while we know of many games that are addictive and give you many hours of enjoyment; gameplay has been good on many platforms over the years including the Commodore 64. I remember as a kid playing the C64 via tape for over 40 hours a week, the gameplay was amazing even if the graphics were sticks.

The quality of games is made up of many factors, and while millions of gamers have loved gaming on the PS3 and Xbox 360, there are those that state the game quality needs to improve for the PS4 and Xbox 720. It’s the feeling of some people that there have been exceptions, but there’s probably been twice as many disappoints too. Titles with short gameplay or missing features and long waits for games that just weren’t worth it. Would you agree with this line of thought?

What about the games the Xbox 360/PS3 were promised this generation that would do everything? Some people feel this hasn’t happened. Graphics are obviously miles better but they never make a game, many last-gen games were better gameplay than this generation. This view has been quickly rejected by some, stating the games today are “unbelievable”, the best since SNES and NES days although we can point to the need for better games in the RPG category.

Then there is the idea that graphics are some times being favored over gameplay, with the loss of more people in online co-op games, which should have been possible this generation, and this needs to change on the PS4 and Xbox 720. Would you like to see much larger online co-op games next-gen? And should good graphics still be possible with this feature, and if not would you prefer the better graphics to gameplay?

We’d like to see the PS4 and Xbox 720 generation include games that are designed with multiplayer in mind from the start, and not making it a last minute decision. If this were done then we’ll see far greater online play come next-gen, including rooms for friends to play alone and better matchmaking.

How would you like to see a better quality of game next generation?

I loved my commodore 64. My favorite game was Conan; although to this day, I still cant figure out why he used a boomerang! I mean, when did he have a boomerang in the films? And have you ever tried to climb a ladder and kill a bat with a boomerang?! Well, there was that one time in Mexico, but I digress… As per the content of the article, next-gen games will be the same as every generation, bigger, better and yet still lacking/generic in the gameplay department. Few games are innovative in this respect, in any given generation of… Read more »

I just want to add one more thing which I forgot to mention in my last comment. If you want to know the lack of depth to single player campaigns of this generation, play Medal of Honor. I was looking forward to that game with such enthusiasm and pre-ordered. Alas, I was absolutely destroyed to find I was able to complete the entire single player storyline in one morning on the mid-difficulty level. The story that was there was okay, nothing special but it made a nice change from Call of Duty. But it was just too short – I… Read more »

Finally, a gaming article that makes sense. Yes, I completely agree that games of this generation are lacking in the gameplay area generally. I constantly find myself going back to Sega Mega Drive and Nintendo 64 – the reason I do that is because these platforms have quality games that are great to play – it’s obviously not about the graphics on those. Games these days can look as beautiful as real life, but if the gameplay is boring, then it’s all totally worthless. I personally don’t care about graphics anymore – I used to. That was until I realised… Read more »

Ill have to admit ive been highly mistaken on games the past few years. Im still playing oblivion which is sad because i feel iy has more replay value as apposed to fable and several other rpgs that ive played. Graphics have improved greatly tho some games id rather they lack the graphics to add in some more major things like more missions longer game play. Majoriyybof all games that have heen released the past two yeqrs have had a max 40hr game play with the exception of assasins creed tho brother hood was lacking a bit. So to rap… Read more »
