Zelda GTA etc...are not really RPG games yes they have some of the same attributes but they are different.

To me a true RPG game would be any of the Final Fantasy; Skyruim, Fall Out, etc...Game where you just put in hours and hours to build your character not necessarily move the story.

Old school RPG use to be where they would fight but you had no real time control. You would pick your move then see it play out and then the computer would pick it's move then see it play out and so fourth until someone was killed.

re: New Games on the Horizon (the video game thread)

Skyrim is definitely RPG, and GTA is not. I'm playing Skyrim on PS3, and I like it, but I just don't have the hours to devote to it lol. It's nice to have for when you have a little time to kill though. But it has serious problems on PS3 (look up Skyrim PS3 problems on IGN) that make it annoying. Like the fact that every time you save the save file grows larger. Mine is about 6k right now and it's only getting bigger. And I've prob. put in like 15 hours on the game.

They are exactly the same different settings. I was the same way; got Fallout 3 all pumped and it took forever to get going. I ended up just giving up on it.

Let's say I got a job in the north pole measuring snow fall amounts for six months; yes then bring on the Skyrim and Fallout games to fill my down time otherwise I don't have the time for them.

I actually got through Final Fantasy 7 when I first graduate from college and had my first real job; I got it used for twenty bucks and it filled my time becasue I had no money to do anything else.

Obviously I would suggest getting a PS3. Seeing as how it comes with blu-ray, wifi, and what is now regarded as a stronger lineup of exclusives. However if you like Halo, GOW, Fable, etc then I would suggest going to Gamestop and getting a Pre-owned 360.

My brother actually got the cheapest model new, the arcade for around $200 and kept his hard drive from his RROD console.

I like my set of X31 Turtle beaches, but according a couple of friends the new PX3's are pretty beast. Wireless, rechargeable, & works with 360/PS3/PC.

Like I said when this thread was talking about GTA, I personally am now in the Saints Row camp as I prefer its crazy over the top aspect vs the super realistic route GTA has gone. I had an absolute blast playing through SR3.

re: New Games on the Horizon (the video game thread)

I played a little GTA IV the other night and I was kinda bored. I'm thinking a little over the top style that SR brings might be right up my alley right now.

re: New Games on the Horizon (the video game thread)

I saved over my Zelda file by accident last night, 10 hours of game play puff in a nano second, fawk.

I went to to start the game and picked save instead of load so I saved over my game data with a new file, sucks.
