Why All Gamers Should Love D. Jaffe
By: | December 13th, 2008

So by now every one who has any interest or knowledge of the gaming industry knows a few of the big names around. There’s Miyamoto, Kojima, Cliffy B., Phil Harrison, Shane Kim and so on and so on. I could go on for a while on all the big names in the industry but that’s not why I’m writing this. Why I’m writing this is because of what I’ve seen from one specific person in the gaming industry. While you big talkers like Cliffy B and Shane, there is one person in the industry who is still down to Earth.

Since the dawn of gaming we’ve enjoyed new intellectual properties, so much so that we want to see more of the same games we love, albeit with a new twist on the formula.  Since the original releases of Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy and Halo a lot of us have enjoyed these great games and want to see more from them.  I remember playing Metal Gear Solid for the original Playstation,  and being taken aback at how games have taken such a leap forward. The game ran longer than most games previous to it, and  offered a lot of new and innovative ways to play.  After completing the game, I just had to have more. The cliffhanger ending left me wanting, and I just had to find out more about the universe.

The same runs true for Final Fantasy, and especially with Halo.  I remember picking up my Xbox with a minimal choice of games. I was almost ready to put that big black brick away. That was, until I discovered Halo. Rushing to the store to pick it up, I started playing the game and was blown away by the sheer grandiosity of it. One of the signs of a great game is leaving you wanting more, and each of these titles are great games.

5 Things We Don’t Want In 2009
By: | December 10th, 2008

Video games make me happy. Their sole reason for existence is to entertain. Although this may be unclear at the first glance of any major video game message board (Fanboy uprising!), most people have nothing but good feelings about games and can’t help but look forward to anything and everything dealing with games. Unfortunately, not everything in the video game world should be anticipated, and some should be downright opposed. Gamerlimit.com is taking a look at some things we could do without in 2009.

This Gens Console Sellers
By: | December 7th, 2008

What sells a console? Is it strong reliable hardware? Is it a powerful graphics processor? Is it huge amounts of ram? Well if this generation is any indication, none of this matters. But one thing surely does. The games. Below the surface the 360 and PS3 have a lot in common and the odd ball Wii tends to sell fine with lacking software support.

The truth is the Wii is unique in it’s high sales of units and the lacking library is odd. Usually a game console needs a strong library with a few exclusives to push that system above the others. Thus this is a list of games from this generation that can or should push consoles. Many, if not all, should be in each respective console owners collection. Some may not seem like system sellers to everyone but in one way or another are of interest to console owners.

Looking to the Future
By: | December 6th, 2008

Even though it was three years ago, its seems as it was only yesterday that Microsoft unleashed its newest console onto the market, marking the era of high definition gaming. One short year later, Nintendo and Sony jumped into the fray, finally making the “next generation” the current generation. Now only two years later, we have already have begun to hear rumblings of the next console generation and this disheartens me. I feel as though we just have begun to receive the games that take advantage of all that the consoles have to offer. Seeing what this generation offers has left me with one question: Where do we go from here?

2009, Like 2008, but +1
By: | December 5th, 2008

2008 isn’t over, and neither is our newly created backlog brought on by the tidal wave of games released in the last few months. A shrink wrapped copies of games I don’t care about are waiting to get their turn in the disc drive, but unfortunately for them and our sanity, we at Gamerlimit.com are always looking forward, no matter how great the risk of death by exhaustion. We’re taking a look at 5 games coming out in quarter 1 of 2009. 5 games bold enough to be released after the holiday season. 5 games that are coming out long after gaming fatigue has already kicked in.

Consumers Lack PS3 Confidence?
By: | December 3rd, 2008

It’s been over 2 years since each console manufacturer has given us the consumer a choice of a system to buy.  You have Microsoft’s white behemoth the Xbox 360, the Sony George Forman grill and well the family oriented Nintendo Wii, which is easily trumping the competition and has the biggest lack of software out of both the PS3 and the Xbox 360.

Each console does offer something unique to the gamer though.  The Wii gives you an experience unlike any other where even the oldest come together to share the fun gaming moments from their early days of childhood.  The Xbox 360 offers a great line up of games that are multiplatform and some great exclusives such as critically acclaimed Gears of War 2 and Lion Head’s Fable II.  Than there is Sony’s PS3, everything that it was meant to be but falls short of peoples confidence to take the money out of their wallets and buy a PS3.  What could Sony be doing wrong that’s not making the consumer want to buy a PS3.  Let’s take a look.
