Nope.  I still have a huge backlog to play through. 

I barely have time to play now, what the hell am I going to do next gen??? Probably have to quit my job.  But then how will I afford the games????

Pretty much done with current gen. I want to play GTA V mainly and a few other games but that's it. I have been ready for the next gen for a couple years now.

This generation might as well be finished for Microsoft but the PS3 is not over at all. The Unfinished Swan and Papa and Yo all came out in the last 6 months. Move keeps getting new games like FMV light gun game Mad Dog McCree. Ron Gilbert's new game The Cave is now out. There's also The Last of Us and Puppeteer coming this year. Look at the PS2- that had great games out on it in to 2007. With Bioshock Infinite as well the PS3 is due to have a very sweet swansong in its lineup. It may be looked upon as as worthy successor as could be hoped for to the PS2.

This is why I say Graphics = Gameplay. Even the games that look to have mediocre graphics have good arstyles and make up for it. Look at Don't Starve. That won't blow you away but damn is the art style good. 



I sort of agree, I've always though Graphics ~ Gameplay. The proportionality depending on the title itself.


It's hard to enjoy certain games if the visuals are poor. Obviously that doesn't apply to older titles, just whatever the standard was at the time of release


The current generation of consoles should have a solid final year and be done with it by Christmas time. It's time to move on, it's not like you're forced to sell these old things immediately and not play any of the games you've yet to. The hardware is old now, and it's time to refresh things.

  I'm looking forward to the new features of next gen consoles rather than just the games. The games out now and releasing soon are great and there's an enormous catalog worth going through but I'm VERY interested in things like: PS+'s future, console MMOs, friend's list that have REAL profiles like social media sites, whether PS4 will support 4k, the new controller features, usb 3.0, graphics, immersion, an enhanced internet browser, faster loads times/seamless background loading in more games, multi-tasking abilities (like checking the internet without leaving a game), bigger/open world environments with better draw distance, compatibility with other devices, and then what games they have that show off the new consoles abilities. I probably WILL get a launch day PS4 and still play my PS3 games as well.

I'm definitely done with my PS3. I sold it at the end of 2011, since there were no major PS3 exclusives scheduled for release in 2012 and I've been fine without it. Halo 4 is keeping me busy on my Xbox 360. Before I buy into next gen I'll also be picking up Skyrim+DLC for cheap on the 360. I may pick up a used PS3 for TLOU, but I need confirmation of campaign length. I don't buy games that are 6 hours long.

I would have tended to agree were it not for 2013. This final year before the next wave, well, so far the PS3 is absolutely crippling the 360. Which is great, really - I feel like I've got quite a bit of use out of it this year already despite also having a bunch of stuff I still need to play on PC and Wii U


Regardless of whether these consoles are 'done' the next wave should come in at the end of the year. The current consoles can exist onwards too - look at the PS2. One thing that I hated about the original Xbox was how quickly MS abandoned it post-360 launch. It felt like utter abandonment and dismissal just a week into the 360's life. Sony does not have that track record, so I don't think the PS3 will swiftly die.

There seems to be a variety of opinions. I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who feels like there's still an extensive catalog out there to play. I've beaten  quite a lot of games this generation, and a bunch of them I've actually played multiple times. I think I've gotten a good experience out of this generation. I'm glad to see that developers were allowed so much more freedom in terms of gameplay and visual portrayal due to the technology. So much has evolved in gaming this gen.

Also, I've been playing a lot of Gears of War 1 and Halo 3 these days. I got Gears 1 for the 360 and I don't even own a 360 haha! I got one of my friends to lend me his 360, that's how badly I wanted to play the Gears series. He also just gave me Halo3 to borrow just so I can get into the series. And both games are just outstandingly fun for titles that were released in 2006 and 2007. I'm just surprised at how much fun I'm having. 


I've really underestimated the Halo series. Halo 3 has some really cool set pieces like the "Scarab" fights and the beautiful level design. I also adore the vehicle combat and overall gameplay of Halo3 in terms of an FPS standpoint. It sort of plays like an old school arena shooter, except a bit more slow paced. Which is awesome because old school shooters are light-years ahead more fun than the modern military shooters in my opinion. The game looks gorgeous too.


The only problem with Halo 3 is that the plot is sort of confusing since I'm a new-comer to the series. So I was thinking of getting Halo Reach since it's a prequel and no involvement in knowledge from the previous games are required.


Same with Gears of war. I love the overall game in general, already beaten it once. Playing through it again! I love the enemy designs in this game as well as the atmospheric and gritty level design. Such a well made game with great standards. I love games where it's about the human race battling it out against a hostile deadly "alien-like" force. And Gears1 does it really well with the cool enemy variety and boss fights. The Corpser is one of the coolest bosses I've ever fought. I'm a huge fan of Resistance 1, 2, and 3, so I'm big fan of games with awesome looking enemies that don't die in 2-3 bullets. It actually takes quite a bit of lead to kill the locust horde. Great game. Can't wait to start Gears 2 and 3.



So yea. I guess I have quite a lot of great games that I can still play multiple times to last until I want a next gen console

As far as consoles go I plan on sticking with my PS3 until like 2015 or so.
