    I do prefer/think the XB1 controller is way better than DS4. Even so, I also think the DS4 is leaps and bounds above the DS3. Its a very good evolution of the controller. As for XB1 controller, I like the shape of the controller better and how it fits my hands, I also prefer the offset thumb sticks and triggers of the XB1 controller. It all comes down to preference. They are both great gamepads.

    That is entirely debatable (about franchises never changing) First of all let me explain. Critics and reviewers are taking the games as if they're the only ones allowed to play a game/franchise. Well no. If you want a different experience you have: Spinoffs of a franchise. Other games and franchises. Now i'll continue to explain what i mean, if the industry keeps and keeps adding useless stuff over the years to the games there'll be a point where all the games are in 3d, 3d aren't the only enjoyable games. Heck, japanese people hate 3d!, for example your 1/10 reviews and things that you mention: Let's take into example Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2, EVERYONE and absolutely EVERYONE who took a chance into the game and beating it noticed that: 1)The soundtrack was amazing (probably some of the most brilliant old school type of music of post 2000) Here's the temporal tower theme: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEL3__eZIuA Here's the dialga theme: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnbEtq3Y_bg Here's the ending theme (I don't want to say goodbye): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aWHPbWIFEXg 2) The story was just beyond what you see in modern games, it was perfectly well crafted... and to think that it comes from a mainstream game franchise, they didn't have to but they really did an exceptional good job in making the story the most epicly thing you could imagine. The artstyle was fabulous, yes it was the most charming kind of sprite artstyle that you could see... however... Because of bitter reviewers who all they noticed was that pokemon mystery dungeon's first and second game artstyle was similar Wanna know the score that it got? Fucking 4.3 (Pokemon mystery dungeon explorer's of sky) in IGN and most websites. http://www.metacritic.com/game/ds/pokemon-mystery-dungeon-explorers-of-sky IGN DIDN'T EVEN HAVE A REVIEW FOR IT, LIKE WHAT THE FUCK? JUST RATE THE DAMN GAME. I normally agree that there's fanboys, but this. This game has to be the most underrated jewel of modern times, it's just perfectly well made. There's some things that do not have to change in games, pokemon mystery dungeon managed to tell stuff in an amazing way in the artstyle it had (colorful sprites and worlds) they didn't have to change to 3d. Oh yeah but they did because they were treated like shit by the industry, so they changed to 3d and the game instantly felt off. Yup that's right, they listen to the reviewers and the game instantly becomes shit, that's your "reviewers" ? that's bitter people who can't enjoy an amazing game. I'm still waiting for the day a real reviewers takes the time to play Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2, beats it and gives it a fair review. That day i'll allow the site to review whatever the fuck they want.

    Lol!! Omg man, this post, or more accurately you, are EXACTLY the the kind of fanboy he is describing with the 7 signs!! Look at your profile pic...that was covered. You were extremely pissed, and apparently still are, about your favorite game (Pokemon extreme mega edition dungeon Hunter 3D) being changed, and wish it were still exactly the same way it was when it was first released... That was covered. You think you are right, and everyone else is wrong....that was covered. You think all reviewers and the gaming industry as a whole are fanboys...That was covered! Even the name of your favorite game was covered!! Pokemon: Mystery Dungeon 2 is pretty similar to the one he used! (I forget what it was but pretty close!) Going to any blank space on the internet and using it to post a love letter about your favorite game with no regard for the topic being discussed...That was covered! It sounds like you are ready to organize a angry mob to get the public to acknowledge the brilliance of your opinion and favorite game...That was covered! You pretty much fit all 7 signs! I thought your post was a joke at first, but you really, truly, honestly don't see it!! Hilarious!

    I toe the waters of #4. I don't mind when a franchise grows or evolves...but I get upset when it's not true to itself. A great example is Dynasty Warriors; the early games made a name for their particular romanticizing of the era where each character had a unique look, a unique [if sometimes wildly impractical] weapon, and unique mannerisms. And then...they didn't do anything with it but put on a new coat of paint for 5 games. It got staler than a mummy fart. The 'Empires' spin-off, and its Risk-like 'take over the country' mode added a little more strategy than 'Press A, press A, press A, press A'; there were now supply lines, upgrade paths, and one-off modifications to the battles to worry about. But the freshness on that was about as short-lived as an open container of milk in the Sahara. They needed to do something to breathe a little life into it. Had they added new mechanics, or even tried something as ambitious as Guilty Gear 2: Overture, they could've put a little life back into the old girl. Instead, they decided to be untrue to everything they've cultivated for 5 games: all the personality of the old games went out the window, in favor of it now being Halberd Warriors: Hooray for Halberds. Iconic characters had their iconic weapons replaced, and the personality that kept the series kicking through 5 games of stubborn adherence to what was, disappeared. Same goes for 'whiny emo young Dante'. You want to tell Dante's backstory? GREAT! You want to touch on Dante's pre-badass days? Ok, I'm intrigued! You want to rewrite his character according to what the marketing department said kids are into these days? Not so great! And really, that's all I ask. Your franchise doesn't have to stagnate...but it does have to stay true to itself. The only exception is for series like Saints Row, where they start as an also-ran to an 'in vogue' genre and needed a game or two to really find their own identity...where it doesn't have anything to be true to right away.

    Good news everyone. I'm not a fan boy! I saw people who seemed liek fan boys and I sometimes wondered if I was one. But I don't do any of those things so yay for me.
  • Sjoeki - December 3, 2013 8:04 a.m.

    I did once talk to a guy who wanted to buy a new controller for the PS3, he had a dualshock in his one hand and a controller created by a company I had never heard of in the other. I told him that in my experience (I did actually buy a controller once that wasn't from Sony, it sucked, hard). I would rather pay more for something that I know works. So yeah, screw you 2nd rate products, I spit on you!

    Some people seem to be doubting number 6, so I'll share this little story. When DmC launched, a friend of mine covered up the boxes in Game with a copy of the Devil May Cry HD collection that happened to be in the preowned section, because "people should play these first". He was doing it mainly as a joke, but I don't doubt that some of the more rabid idiots out there would do things like that with absolute sincerity!
  • Earthbound_X - December 2, 2013 11:10 p.m.

    There's no way anyone has ever really done 6.
  • TokenGamesRadarFurry - December 2, 2013 10:43 p.m.

    Ouya master race.

    Guys, I have a confession to make. After reading this brilliant article I have decided to get this thing off of my chest, I need to clear my conscience and I don't think I can rest easily without sharing the news. Although I think a couple of you may have caught onto me I feel like I still need to tell everybody regardless. This may shock you, I'm guilty of number 5. I'll give you a minute to recover from that shocking news.

    Tao is awesome so rock on!
  • g1rldraco7 - December 2, 2013 4:51 p.m.

    I am a fangirl there I said it :P Wow it's been 1 year since I joined GamesRadar, I should be more excited, but I don't :/

    I would like to add, I think the Nintendo fanboy moniker should be put away for the next couple months. This will ruffle some feathers but I honestly believe that Nintendo has released the best Mario since Mario World, and the best Zelda since Link to the Past, in the same month no less. Mario Land is so ridiculously packed with secrets I'm finding two or three new ones every time I pick up the controller. Holding a green shell? Duck and BAM, you turn into a red shell. Boomerang Bros. throw a boomerang at you? Touch him on your screen and his own boomerang will take him out when it returns. God this Mario is so good. I'll never understand how it turned out so differently from the almost universally negative previews it got.
  • Redeater - December 2, 2013 4:11 p.m.

    Land = 3D Mario World. Jesus, one thing that needs addressing at Nintendo is their ridiculous naming system. To this day I still don't understand which GBA Mario games are which NES/SNES game.
  • BladedFalcon - December 2, 2013 4:28 p.m.

    Again, releasing one very great game doesn't, and shouldn't grant you protection from any sort of criticism. Nor should it give you a carte blanche to justify drooling all over the game and company without acknowledging anything else. Balance, as in all things, is key, methinks.
  • Redeater - December 2, 2013 6 p.m.

    Out of everyone here I thought you would be the least likely to fall for someone channeling fanboy Coop. :D I would continue but I have to get some Dream Team going on my 3DS. Nintendo just understands the complexities of RPGs in ways that other companies don't.
  • Redeater - December 2, 2013 6:01 p.m.

    Dinger! That last reply was directed at Falcon.
  • Kidhaze - December 2, 2013 5 p.m.

    I like Nintendo for numerous reasons, but not even a few good titles exclude them from fan boys/girls. So no, they don't deserve a pass from the moniker.
