Was thinking of PSU#1:
Graphics dont make the game
About that DS version
Taken off the wikki
Phantasy Star 0 received a high 33 out of 40 from Famitsu magazine, which praised the game's controls, game play, and online mode, noting "it really feels like an online game in the palm of your hand." The publication criticized the game's "softness of the sound." Phantasy Star 0 sold approximately 84,055 copies during its debut week in JapanA few answers got mixed up#2: ?
You need more gamer friends.I have about 5 friends who I play games with on a regular basis. I once spoke with them about the Dreamcast. None of them knew what it was, so I explained. The Dreamcast died in 2001, almost 10 years ago.
I can raise a good objection to that.Most "gamers" today, unfortunately represent ages 12 to 16, and none of them are going to know about a console which is older than they are.
The average age of gamers is 25 to 30 due to a recent survey and even some of the younger ones that call them self's "HARDCORE" at least know of the early consoles
I know a few people on a different forums that can dispute that.The fact is, the Dreamcast was a good console, but it was not a great console. I mean come on, let's be real here. I own a Dreamcast, and I've had fun playing SC, Rayman, Sonic Adventure, etc. on it. But when it all comes down to it, it's not a very good console by today's standards.
The N64 had online?Sure, it had some online games, so did the SNES, and the Saturn, and the N64, and the Genesis before it.
Note the usage of past tense in my wordingAre you seriously telling me that the DC's library "trounces" the PS2? Have you gone mad?
True a lot of Dreamcast games got ported but thats probably because they where goodIt gave the PS2 a run for its money
It has more than 8 must havesThe DC has about 8 really quality titles. The GC and PS2 have more along the lines of 50 and 150 respectively. And yes, it does wreak of obscure titles.
So is the Atari 2600 but that dosnt stop people from still playing on it often.Almost no one knows about Rez or Ikaruga or Dynamite Cop. It's a very old console, and it's one which never made it past its second year, didn't sell very many games, and didn't sell very many consoles.
It didnt make it past its second year cause of Segas bad mistake and there are still games coming out for it so its not dead yet
I only ever read the reviews from trusted mags that know what there talking about (no single format as there biased)
I still ignore the score though
Thats still quite poor for a PS2 gameBTW: Why are you using Ico and SOTC as examples of games that sold poorly? SOTC sold 140k copies in its first week, and has sold 940,000 worldwide so farWhere?(and it's still being produced might I add),
No stores I go into have it new.
You musnt read magazines thenThat's pretty good, especially considering neither of them really had any advertising to speak of.
SOTC was advertised a lot
This is starting to turn into a bit of a debate here isnt it?
All this from a suggestion.
