Today’s Xbox 360 games appear to be in a decline when it comes to game play even for the best well seasoned players. It’s almost as if all people care about is the graphics, with a catchy enough title it’s apparent a game can be called a hit when in reality games are losing their re-playability and game play. Let’s start with Halo 3 it’s a fun game but there really isn’t any reason for it to have such loose controls, compared to it’s predecessor the original Halo which has much tighter precise aiming, it puts Halo 3 to shame in terms of game play. There really is no reason for that especially for such a highly commercialized game. Another good example for loose aiming which effects the game play happens to be Rainbow Six: Vegas the aiming is disgustingly slow and awkward far below the normal pick the controller up and play standards of games in the old days. (NES-Xbox)
Now instead of a good story-line the player will spend most of their time adjusting to the in-precise mechanics of the flawed aiming system, which in retrospect that should be the most fundamental thing to a game, it should always be game play then graphics. Somewhere along the line of things to do it seems these game developers are slacking in the arena of producing actual fun to play games. With the lack of game play on consoles (Xbox 360) it really puts PC games like Counter-Strike 1.6 and Counter-Strike Source, on most hardcore gamers FPS lists. It isn’t for a bad cause either if you don’t own a 360 yet, don’t plan on buying unless you own an HDTV so that you can see all those details you paid for in exchange for your Story-line amp; game play, it’s a shame!
So it’s basically a gamble to go out and buy an Xbox 360 without having a t.v. that has HD capabilities because for one you’re not going to be seeing what you paid for in terms of detail. That’s really where Xbox 360 is all at when it comes down to it’s main quality, other than that you’re going to be able to have more fun and express more skill on your PC using your mouse and keyboard. That’s where most gamers have had to turn for expressing their skills. A good way to look at it is say for instance you have a player on Halo 3 who has been playing games for all their life up against a little kid who’s been playing Xbox 360 for 3 weeks that’s it is most likely going to put up a challenge to the player who is far more experienced, it’s like the controls limit everybody to just be so good and that’s that, it’s just a balanced kill festival.
