All About The-Longshot
"Speaking toGames Industry International, Carmack said Microsoft and Sony are too focused on boosting technical power, when they should instead be working on building new experiences for future consoles. "Sony and Microsoft are going to fight over gigaflops and teraflops and GPUs and all this. In the end, it won't make that much difference," he said. "When you get to this, it makes a really big difference in the experience. Nintendo went and brought motion into the gaming sphere and while only having a tenth of the processing power was able to outsell all of them in all of these ways. I think someone has an opportunity to do this here. It takes a whole ecosystem though, but it is almost perfect."
And I totally agree. I have absolutely zero intention on purchasing the "Next Gen" of consoles. I have a 360 a 3DS, and a ragged but running PC for games, what else does one need? I'll get a new system when someone gives me a REAL reason to buy one but more memory and faster processors isn't going to sell me. As Carmack said people are more interested in new experiencesin games or at least a new way to enjoy them such as motion sensing/kinect or even touch controls and that sort of thing.
I may have said it before but I'll say it again, gameplay is what matters to gamers, it always has been and it always will be.
In my opinion was one of the greatest entries in the series ever. My question is,...... Where is it? The cart itself is pretty rare, and its even rarer (tho i have one) to find a working N64 these days.
I'm hoping, beyond hope that we can generate enough steam here on gamespot to make ID/Bethesda possibly consider porting it to xbox live arcade for us to download.
Its a little crazy they still want 800 points just for DOOM 2, but I'd be willing to pay 1600 for DOOM 64.
Anyone else out there love these game's as much as I do?
Personally I'm considering two excellent tattoo's from the original DOOM to put upon myself very soon. I've been playing this series since it first came out and I was but a child, it hasn't lost ANY of its fun and luster in my eyes.
Yup, I'm still playing it. Hoping I can find some people on line soon to finish up my 100 deathmatch kills,.... anyone?.... Anyone???...... Bueler?.....?
If your interested send a message to my xbox live gamertag. Thanks and thats all for now.
