I'm A Threetard by debureturns I'm A Threetard by debureturns
Pixel art a-go-go, baby!

It may have it's fair share of haters, but those of us with more than two working brain cells can see that the PS3 is a serious piece of kit. It's stylishly designed on both a software and hardware level (feather-touch buttons!), and has the backing of a lot of Japanese developers. I'm not saying that it's better than the X360 or the Wii, but i don't think it deserves the crap that it's getting from gaming vegetables across the Internet.

I likes. "The better than" thing, Ohh that takes me back to when I was a little kid. Every kid would say the super nintendo was best, while it had great games you can't deny the genesis was just as good.This generation of videogame systems is visually much better and most major games are multiplatform now. We can never avoid "The better than" crap, which I think people usually say because they wanted the other system .

You'll find that a lot of the people who disrespect consoles are actually very young and immature (teenage, or earlier); i find that as people get older and appreciate the industry as a whole, discussion becomes more mature. The true gamer looks past the machines, and concentrates on the games - if the industry was run by children, we wouldn't have some of the truly great games we have today, because they wouldn't go to the classics as reference.

It doesn't play PS2 games? I didn't know... i don't think i've ever tried to run a PS2 game on the PS3. Well, i guess if you have a look around the game stores in the New Year, there may well be a sale on so you can get a PS2 dirt-cheap.

And thankyou. :D

Thankyou, Fern - i was rather keen on this one, myself! I'm slowly getting into pixel art, and the pixel joypad actually looks like what it's supposed to be (this time!) :D

As for the Playstation 3, i personally think it's a great console, but if you're not a hardcore fighting games fan i would suggest waiting until the price drops a bit (which i'm sure it will, soon enough).

Finally someone out there who doesn't wanna bash the poor lil PS3, good for you lad! Have yet to get the chance to play it but your quite right with all of it s software/style/performance.

Rather rude to see so many chaps bash it just cause it doesn't have as many good games out yet, lol.

Thumbs up to the pixel work too man, where the hell does the name threetard come from? ^o^

Later,

I would strongly recommend you get one if you're looking for a new console, man. It really doesn't deserve a lot of the criticism it's getting - after all, people aren't doing the same to the PS and PS2, so why the hostility for the third generation? As you say, there aren't too many great games out for it at the moment, but then it's still a very new machine.

I'm pleased you liked the pixelling, bro' - i might get into that a bit more in the future. As for the term 'threetard', that's an amalgamation of 'three' (PS3), and 'retard'. :D

I can appreciate your point of view, Jake. A lot of games today are derivative of those that have come before - i'd be foolish to argue otherwise.

My opinion is that there's still a lot of potential in the games industry, and that pretty much every console has had it's fair share of decent games (there have been exceptions to this, but in general). I think a lot of the time how much quality software on each machine is in the eye of the beholder - i imagine our taste in games differs, so what i see as being a great game might not be your cup of tea. For instance, i'm a big fighting games fan, so i probably get more out of the PS3 than someone who's an avid platform games player. So, in theory, every console will be a classic to someone out there. I'm not trying to say 'Everybody come and agree with me on how great the PS3 is', i'm saying 'those people who like the PS3 are welcome to come and use this stamp'.

As for saying 'hostility for the third generation', i was specificially meaning the third generation of Playstation. My standpoint is that even if every PS3 game on it sucks, it becomes an expensive PS2 - but then i liked the PS2, so that doesn't seem too bad to me.
