Let’s Play Some Games Together:
This is the first console gen I’ve skipped since the early 80s. The Pro and X are good value, but the original consoles were low-end hardware that wasn’t equivalent to the 7th gen’s power in 2005.
I love the 7the generation i just love it and now i miss it😢
This gen is the worst. Too many games coming out incomplete and needing patched, too many pay to win systems, very little originality outside of Indy titles, no PS4 exclusive GTA title, a lazy final fantasy entry, and games taking way too long to be released. I’ve been hearing that kingdom hearts 3 is coming out since I was in a completely different age group.
The 7th generation was the best,I still have my, PSP, wii and ps3 memories ❤️😪
Noobtube, is that you?
I think the next big step is stadia and than all big player will do this stuff
Let’s hope that 9th gen gets much better than 8th. Let’s save gaming!
At least the PS4 was actually different than the PS3. Can’t say the same about the Xbox 1S and the 1 though…
PS2 was the best console ever.
Only great console in this generation is 3DS with many exclusives(many Pokemon, Zelda, Mario great games) but the rest consoles are big meh, PS4 have 3 great excusives: Uncharted 4, Red Dead Redemption 2, God of War and others are sadly average or bad and few are pretty decent, FF7 Remake maybe be great but we must wait for this. XOne have even less great games(RRD2 are also exclusive for me since you cant play this on PC), and Vita was dead since her starting months. I hope that Gen 9 will be better.
Not the worst generation but very, very stale.
First generation innovation: play games at home
Second gen innovations: Atari, golden age of arcades
Third generation innovation: nes, better regulatory control over industry
Fourth generation: processing power of consoles increased, arms race between sega and Nintendo let sega make more “risky” games that led to innovative titles for both companies, games that cater to more mature audiences, portable games, probably the golden age for both consoles
Fifth generation: shift to 3D, cd, sony making games to cater to young adults instead of kids begins shift for industry from kid centric to adult centric
Sixth generation: online play, Microsoft popularizing FPS genre for console gaming with halo, golden age for handheld gaming consoles with ds and psp
7th generation: hd, motion controls, competition between Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo brings great exclusives
8th generation: integration between online play and social media, voice controlled consoles, touch controls
9th generation: first mobile/home hybrid console
The original Crash Bandicoot trilogy stills looks very handsome today – probably why they felt it earned a remaster.
We got a dpad and fortnight be happy
I think 8th gen are officially the last consoles I buy , crazy to imagine. nintendo still killing it with the switch tho
Fortnite is the reason why
8th gen ended when nintendo released switch so technically xbox and ps4 are last gen garbage.
If I had seen you video before 10 months, I would never sold my ps3 console for buying ps4 games and console. Shut I did a big mistake. After seeing your video I am planning to buy ps3 console and games.
Agreed. 39 year old here. Been gaming since the early 80s. So far this has been the most underwhelming generation for me personally.
The best part of this generation is that it convinced me to switch to the pc.
All I want is to put the disc in and play the game like the old days. The switch is the only console that can do that, unless specifically indicated by the retail box (which is rare to be fair).
I will completely agree what you said in that I will agree with you
4th 6th ANd 7th are my favorite generations
The 6th generation is still my number one favorite to this day the ps2 was a really fun experience, but I also thought the 8th generation was really good too and it would probably come in second for me and I also liked the 7th gen too well the early part of it i liked not the late part.
7th Gen consoles were the best because you had best of both worlds
I have a doubt then why PS4 has sold 70 million units
Loved the 4th thru the 7th gens but your right this gen hasen’t been that good other for a couple of games, everything will most likely be digital in a couple of years.
Painful this is true especially in xbox exclusives case
Keep that same entry when cyberpunk 2077 comes out this gen
as far as innovation goes… yeah i would say this generation has been the absolute worst generation. half of the xbox ones lineup is xbox 360 games "remastered" to run at 60fps. almost every franchise i loved in 7th gen, got shitty out of place sequels. And no new franchises managed to stand out to me and make me feel like my 500 dollar purchase was worth it. halo 5 was trash, gears of war 4 was pretty but not nearly as fun as the first 3, dead rising 3 was ok yet forgettable.. but dead rising 4 was trash and threw away everything i loved about the franchise, forza 5 was half assed filled with bugs and lacked content, crackdown 3 was just… awful. I honestly hated this gen, there was a huge lack of innovation. no new mechanics like increased destructability, greater physics, or interactive environments happened beyond what we had already seen on the 360. And I honestly cant stand how now every game disk needs to install like 50 gb of data before you can even play the damn thing.
This is straight facts. Nothing can sum up this generation more than disappointment. Literally almost a decade of just shit being forked into our mouths. Getting flogged for our money at every corner, being assaulted by PC and gender politic ideology. Take me back to the 360/PS3 days and just let me live in that era forever
I mean to say I didn’t like PS4 then why people are crazy to buy PS4 I didn’t understand that
In my opinion for fighting games like Mortal Kombat and Tekken PS4 is so bad
Positives and improvements of 8th generation gaming:
– The online features have (I assume) faster load times than the 6th and 7th generation online features.
– The controllers of the Xbox One and PS4 aren’t necessarily an improvement over the 5th, 6th and 7th generation controllers, but they are just as good as the last three generations.
Positives and improvements of 8th generation gaming to some other people:
– Better graphics (I don’t care for the differences between 5th and 8th generation graphics)
– More memory (I never had to get two PS3’s because I used too much memory, and I never had to get two PS2’s or PS1’s either because we had memory cards back then, so as the older consoles never had memory failures I don’t think this can be seen as an improvement).
Negatives of 8th generation gaming:
– Decline of single player modes
– Decline of traditional multiplayer modes
– Online features are usually too crowded/busy
– I heard verbal abuse in the 8th generation online features is on the rise (may be true, might not)
– (the biggest negative): The 8th generation has thus far only seem to have released about 3 or 4 brilliant games (Witcher 3, Bloodborne, Pokémon X & Y and maybe Quantum Break), whereas the PS2 had about 50 great games for it and the PS3 had about 30-35 brilliant games for it. Now Red Dead 2 and ESVI probably will be great, but that would still mean the 8th generation only has 6 great games for it by the end of the generation, nothing compared to the previous three generations.
Negative things that do affect 8th generation gaming but isn’t a direct fault of the console itself:
– – Cost of the games and DLC’s.
Overall, judging from this comparison, the 7th, 6th and 5th generations totally annihilate the 8th generation. The only generations the 8th generation is better than is the first 3. I think even the fourth generation (late 80s-1995) is better than the current generation.
Where is the switch in
The 8 or 9th
Not the 8th cuz that is where the Wii U is.
And the 9th is not here
Each new generation creates new Franchises, which the next generation gets sequels from, which makes people want the next console.
racket and clank
The 8th generation is the first generation, which still lacks this.
ask yourself this, which of these titles will exist to the next generation.
With the exception of the Wii U (which I really only played Smash 4, Super Mario Maker, and Splatoon), I skipped a huge majority of the 8th gen and went back to 6th gen to play GameCube and Xbox games that I didn’t get to play back then. (I missed quite a lot sadly… But thankfully this was my chance to experience more of it.)
Not sure if the Switch is considered 8th or 9th gen, but I love the Switch!
I like it the new ps4 controller now there cross platform the new console style I like it my opinion don’t hate
i don’t think there have been any games that couldn’t have been done last generation, just looking a little bit worse. along with way less new IPs, less single player games and less genre variety, i think this generation was kind of disappointing to me personally. i also think that games as a service is almost entirely responsible for the lack of games this gen in comparison to last, for example, last generation Rockstar had 6 games i believe, if you count GTA 5, which is technically still a 7th gen game, Rockstar have had only 2 games this gen and that’s because almost all of their focus has been on making money with GTA online, whereas i would have loved a new max payne or midnight club
Not gonna lie.. This has been the worst console generation ever.. Sure you can argue that Ps4 has more exclusives than Xbox One but damn I don’t think that I have seen so many errors in a console before.. Not only was the games as well better before but it also feels like the Ps3 and the Xbox 360 had better quality than Ps4 and Xbox One for some reason..
Man I wish I was old enough to understand that back in the days.. I wish Sony and Microsoft would go with that console style again next gen
One thing to say look how many GTA games we’ve got in The PS2 Era alone n they all new games enough said.
No innovation? Seriously this generation really pushed virtual reality forward. PlayStation VR was a big step forward yeah there’s a lot of issues like motion sickness and things that need worked out. But still leaps Ford technologically speaking. Not to mention this generation gave us the new God of War game which is amazing Marvel Spider-Man Dark Souls 3 blood-borne Resident Evil 7. Xbox gave us the resurrection of Killer Instinct a really fun game in Sunset Overdrive Ori and the Blind Forest cuphead Child of Light limbo inside there’s so many incredible indie games from this generation. In my opinion the 8th console generation is the third best console generation. Right behind the 5th and the 6th console Generations. 7th and 8th are close.
as much as i miss owning a physical copy, the convince and getting it at 9pm the day before makes for it.
7th generation and 8th generation consoles sucks because they started the DLC bs to milk money from players by making unfinished or extra story mode levels in games.The best console generations were 6th generation, 5th generation, 4th generation and 3rd generation since they did not have DLC and their games had finished story modes.
I understand whats going on with all the remasters on the PS4. So basically, the PS3’s hardware meant that their games couldnt run on the PS4, so a lot of last gen titles are being re-released on the PS4 so that they can be played on the PS5 via backwards compatibility of PS4, being able to play the original PS4 titles and the remastered versions of older games
Its friday, you are going home. You take a shower, put an old comfy undies, turn ps4, load your fave game, BAM, patch download…huge turn off…
Come on delete this video you have so many children comments
The reason why 8th gen sucks is also due to microtransactions, lags, lootboxes, etc.
If GameCube 2 Exist
NINTENDO SAVES CONSOLE GENERATION EIGHT YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY
The ps3 had more exslusive titles than ps4.
