Isn’t it time to let the past gen go?

With the announcement of Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Syndicate a few years way back, we also got news that the AAA developer was dropping development for games on the previous platforms. So the question is, isn’t it time to let the past gen go?

This means from now on they were focusing their efforts solely on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. There has been some outcry from this announcement, but why? Let’s take a look at why it’s time to say goodbye to the past generation of consoles.

If, for example, you want to play Der Eisendrache and find the Void Bow Skull locations, or where the Dragons are, the old consoles will be no good.

Let’s get to the most obvious case for this argument: graphics. We all know that as long as a developer is making sure a game runs well on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, it simply will not look as good as it possibly can.

Isn’t it time for new music games?

We all know about the music game craze that hit when Guitar Hero and Rock Band swept the world. It seemed like every console had those two titles spinning inside of them at all times and there were even parties that were held exclusively to play them with friends. But isn’t it time for new music games?

Too much of a good thing is always bad and the same happened here. Oversaturation killed the industry and only recently has new signs of life started to show. The question is, are you ready to play them?

Just like millions of other gamers, I was completely swept up in the music game craze. I was in LOVE with the genre and I barely played any other titles. I loved the music, I loved the instruments, and most of all I loved the bonding that it created. It honestly seemed like nothing could stop the music game craze.

Why I said goodbye to my Nintendo consoles

I am the last to say that I don’t love Nintendo’s IPs. Bowser, Link, Mario, and all Nintendo’s great characters have brought me countless hours of fun over my gaming life. With that said though, something has felt off this generation of consoles and it has led me to sell both my Nintendo Wii U and 3DS. Let’s jump and take a look as to why I said goodbye to my Nintendo consoles.

Like I said before, I really enjoy Nintendo and am thankful to the folks there for the games they have created for us. The big games of this generation, at least for the Wii U, were obviously Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros. They were the only two titles that I kept for the console because they were the only ones that really sunk their teeth into me.
