I've been playing videogames for as long as I remember. First system I ever owned was the original gameboy. I think I might have been 5 or 6. I worked for my dad and payed for every system I've ever owned, save 2 or 3. I like pretty much every genre as long as the game is good. I've been on here awhile. I'm exciting. I swear.
Does anyone other than me remember your first (heterosexual) experience with the rumble pack on the N64? Star Fox 64 did it for me. When I would crash into the ground I was "rumbled" accordingly. It felt soooooooo good. That feeling has been with me ever since. That most glorious nostalgia has been one of the subtle keys to gaming experiences worldwide for the past 10 or so years. And then came the PS3 with its blatant blasphemy and blu-ray. What were they thinking? Maybe we wouldn't notice? You downplay our gaming rooted childhoods and expect us to just except what your telling us, that rumble is not "this gen" but that it's "last gen?" Touche, Mr. Phil Harrison. Touche. And according to games.net it appears that rumble isn't coming to the PS3 in the near future either. Sony is just improving the sixaxis controls. Frankly, I don't care. I bought a Wii so I could have fun with motion. I got a PS3 so i could have my pants rumbled off while gawking at beautifully rendered...*ahem*... visuals. I just feel empty inside when I play my PSTriple by myself with no rumble. On another note, all of my friends are only on Xbox Live and I have no one to play with on PSN, but that's another story for another day.
