@BinaryFragger

I'm split on the XB1. While it's upcoming games blow the PS4 out of the water, hardware wise, I consider it to be one of the most unnecessary consoles of all time. If we lived in a world where every game was multiplat, then there would be almost no reason whatsoever to purchase an XB1, over a PS4, so in reality, the only reason the XB1 is as appealing as it is is because it's "holding games hostage"

I think this article misses the mark a bit. The Wii still got a fair share of multiplats, and it functioned perfectly as an exclusive device. The Wii U is for Nintendo games, and only Nintendo games.

But even as a second console, the Wii U falls short. It's just too expensive, and doesn't really add any value beyond the games. $300+$400=$700 JUST on gaming hardware.

Last gen hardware was cheaper, and the Wii offered a completely brand new experience with motion controls. Add to that that it was a system that an entire family could enjoy.

Man I love Level 5, they are really pushing the JRPG genre forward, and I hope that Lightning Returns will be enough to get the media to pay more attention to the genre (for some reason, Final Fantasy has become the only benchmark for the JRPG genre).

I'm not usualy a fan of turn based JRPG's but I might give this one a shot. Let's just hope it gets localized.

This is why I wasn't really bothered by the high price for Wii Sports Club. They are giving us a really good deal for Wii Fit U. I'm not really interested in Wii Fit U, but I am excited for Nintendo. And I'm super hyped for Wii Sports Club

@HeatBombastic
I what I meant is each person has their own individual line beyond which they don't think playing a game is ethical any more. For myself and the author of this article, GTA is obviously beyond that line, but for a lot of people it's obviously not

@K1LLEGAL
The problem arises in the fact that it IS a game, and that people are getting enjoyment out of simulating horrible things. Lets take an extreme hypothetical. Lets say there was a game where you played as a terrorist organization, and you had to nuke different cities and commit acts of terror. Does that sort of game sound okay to you? I doubt it.

Nearly all combat-based games involve taking enjoyment out of some sort of violence, even Nintendo games feature you killing poor animals and monsters. The place people differ is where you draw that line for something that just shouldn't be simulated for fun.

@Royalblues He never said the game is bad. He said it's not for him. He just has different moral standards than a lot of people do, and the idea of committing horrible crimes in a game for fun doesn't sound right to him. He's not saying the game is bad or going into denial, he just has different tastes.

And have you ever considered that he shares his tastes with a lot of Nintendo fans? A lot of Nintendo fans love Nintendo because of its family friendly titles, so they naturally wouldn't be a fan of GTA. It's not that they are in denial telling themselves that they wouldn't want it even if it was on Wii U, it's that they genuinely don't like that type of game.

And I agree with that. I scoffed at the PS4 and XBOX One lineups. Not a single JPRG. Knack, Zoo Tycoon, and maybe Killer Instinct (because I have a soft spot for Fighting games) are the only games that really appealed to me. And it's not just Nintendo this stuff applies to, right now I'm looking into a PS3 in order to play Ni No Kuni, but I was very upset to see that the PS3 wasn't bundled with any game I was interested in.

I've never read an article I agree with so much. I just can't bring myself to play games in which you kill lots of people. I much prefer my games to treat death with a lot of care and sensitivity, ergo my love for JRPGs, which usually take death as a theme. GTA is the epitome of this violence, where you not only kill people, but you also gain enjoyment from raping and torturing others as well. I respect that other people like it, but it really does bother me that so many people eat up something that I find so morally objectionable.
