As much as I love Starfox, Deus Ex 3 is certainly not an inferior game. So far, I'd say it's easily the best contender for GoTY.. slightly edging out the Witcher 2.

Dead Island seems like a great game, glitches aside. Warhammer has a rather big following in the UK and Lego Pirates is an immensely fun game.

But it's still a game many people played to death over a decade ago, would you blame someone for not wanting to buy an expensive new system just to play old games?

Starfox and Zelda might be good games, but they're not system sellers. The 3DS still lacks any real reason to purchase one.

no it doesn't lack any real reason to purchase it. gamers are just too darn picky. The only reason why I haven't got one yet is because I haven't had the money. How is this any different from the DS launch? Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land are coming out too, which are always system sellers. And sales have gone up for the 3DS. So Highwinter, that's where your opinion and my opinion differ.




i own an xbox 360 and a ps3 and although the graphics in games keep getting better, i am starting to find that on the whole, its all rather flashy SOULESS gaming. there is definitely a time and place for first person shooters, but i personally think that there is an even GREATER need now for nintendo and their great gaming heritage. gaming seriously needs nintendo and the 3ds/wiiU to pull through and become successful. Which is why i bought a 3ds on release day and bought a wii today.

Could someone please send this data straight to Miyamoto, so we'll get another one. ^^

Btw: I don't understand the hype around deus ex...find it so unimaginative. :/

@16: I like how you call a new game unimaginative after praising a port.

Some one had to do it...
Anyway, references aside, I really am pleased. I really didn't think it'd do that well to be honest. The whole warhammer 40k (Which is another really awesome series) started in the UK if I'm not mistaken. It's no wonder that game succeeded
