The Wii loses its effect after a while. I sold mine. Its games are just mini-game compilations. And please don't go with everything the tabloids say all the time. Games are about escapism. Launching your body around the room like a lunatic is not escapism. :)

I'll agree with you on escapism, Shaun. The idea of games is to escape. I understood that when I tried to play a video game somewhere once. Then I realised that I didn't want to escape from anywhere - that was why it wasn't working. I was too happy. :)

Shaun meant (er...I think) that games in general are about escapism (though not the Wii ones) and I'm agreeing with him on that. I don't know about Wii games though.

Yes, that's right. That's what I meant. :) Games help you escape from the madness of reality. 8)

That's why long and addicting games like Final Fantasy are worshippable.

The cut scene's never last longer than 5 minutes and considering an average FF game lasts 50 hours and that cut scenes aren't at all common, most of the game is actual gameplay. It beats the hell out of over rated FPS games like Halo. FFXIII may be the reason the PS3 could dominate the other consoles, the XB360 relies mainly on FPS and TPS with one or 2 medicore RPGs, The wii relies on platform games that are in a series that has been around since the dawn of time and games that require no gameplay at all. The PS3 has a mixture, RPG, TPS, Platform. The main downfall to the PS3 is the fact you need to have money growing on trees to actually own one.

The Main feature of Fabula Nova Crystallis Final Fantasy XIII, the main game is PS3 exclusive, there are several games in the compilation and some that aren't as good or worth the time as the Main game are going to other consoles. There's also the rumoured Final Fantasy VII remake that's apparently PS3 exclusive.
