MTV: What Barack Obama's Win Means for Gamers

50°
321w ago - MTV has pieced together some of Barack Obama's thoughts on video games in order to understand what his presidency will mean for the gaming industry.

Previously he has called on the industry to give parents better information, and producers themselves to make descriptions available of exactly what content is included.

To quote: Obama's answer: "A: We need to give parents the tools and information they need to make choices about what programs their children are watching or what video games they are playing. As we move towards a digital environment, there is a golden opportunity for the industry to do this on their own–to use the latest in technology to give parents more information and more choice.

For example, this technology could make it possible for parents to create their own family tier just by programming their television to block certain channels, block certain genres of programming like dramas, or block television at certain times of the day.

The same can be said of video games, especially as we're moving into an era when they can be downloaded as easily as today's movies and television shows. I would call upon the video game industry to give parents better information about programs and video games by improving the voluntary rating system we currently...
 

Introducing the Top 5 Zelda Games

350°
321w ago - Has there ever been a better video game series than the Zelda video game series? Maybe the Super Mario, Castlevania, Metroid and Mega Man series, but after those, Zelda has no competition.

The single factor that contributes towards a great gaming series is the amount of great games in the series. The same cannot be said for the Double Dragon series, for example, where it fell drastically in quality after Double Dragon 2.

In the Zelda series though, the games seemed to get better with each subsequent addition. This is rare for a video game series, and the Zelda series has been able to accomplish this with flying colors. Controversy will be heard in the sequencing of this list, but that only goes to show how strong each game in the series was.

5. Link's Awakening

Who thought that Link's Awakening would be as good as it was on the Gameboy? This game packed in as much information and detailed story line as any of the Zeldas for any of the other systems. The map was just as large, you had as many tasks to accomplish, and the bosses matched the mettle of the bosses of Link to the Past.

The only downside of this game was the black and white background, which would soon be overcome once one was immersed in the journey given to them in the dream-like sequence of...
 

Do Game BETAs and Demos Kill both the Mood and Sales?

50°
321w ago - The question is, do game companies sell less games because they offer a beta or a demo?

In an interview with GamePro magazine, Gears of War head-honcho Cliff Bleszinski said the following: "Once you play a BETA, you can check it off your list - you can say, yeah, I played it."

So, what Cliff seems to be saying is that they will not sell as many games to the public if they offer a beta/demo. Makes some sense and as the old saying goes, why buy the cow (or GOW in this case...) when the milk is free.

Of course BETAs can be looked at in a slightly different light than demos because a beta is supposed to help the devs sort out issues that they might not have found otherwise. Wide-scale testing also stresses servers and other support systems that routing in-house testing just can't do as effectively.

On the other hand, betas do provide quite a bit of insight into the final product. The gameplay will almost certainly be the same and graphics usually only increase slightly in the final versions. In essense, a BETA of a multi-player game is a free playing period that helps devs and gets gamers excited about a game.

Of course this can backfire and it can cause gamers to run the other way before the final version even hits the streets. Maybe some of the issues have been...
 

The PlayStation 3 Games to Look Out for in 2009!

500°
321w ago - Has 2008 been a great year for Sony? Yes and No, some people have already said why Sony havent had the best of years and I have to agree with them, but theres one thing I didn't do, buy an Xbox 360!

Anyway, was 2008 the year of PS3? No. Will 2009 be the year of PS3? Possibly. The following games are the ones to look out for and could make Sony leader of 2009.

Please note these are PlayStation 3 only games, some of them may not make 2009 (some of them aren't even announced but could be announced soon) but maybe, just maybe.

In no particular order:

- Infamous
- Killzone 2
- God of War 3
- Ratchet and Clank
- The agency (also on PC)
- Gran Turismo 5
- Yakuza 3
- Trico
- Uncharted 2
- Jak 4
- Heavy Rain
- White Knight Chronicles
- Final Fantasy XIII Versus
- Demon's Soul
- MAG
- Wardevil
- Twisted Metal

What games are you looking forward to?
