Resistance as a Killer game[edit]

Hi. Can you provide some reasoning behind your assertion that Resistance is a killer game? I don't know of anyone rushing out to buy a PS3 just to play it (as happened with GTA etc). Indeed, its page on gamerankings is just 87.4%, below Forza 2, which isn't considered a "killer game" for 360. Please don't add it back again without some sort of proof or something. Thanks.

Unfortunately, just because you think Resistance is an "awesome" game isn't criteria for inclusion. I think Pro Evolution Soccer 4 is excellent, as do all the people I know, but it's not a "killer" game. Likewise Eternal Darkness, Burnout 3 etc. Gears of War was definitely seen as a benchmark in the quality and graphics of Xbox 360 games. Resistance is only a launch game, and while great, it didn't cause shortages of the PS3, and the attachment rate isn't as high as something like the PS2 and GTA, or Xbox and Halo, or whatever. While I admit the killer game section is subjective, I think a good rule of thumb is if the game caused people to take a far greater interest in the console - usually it's a genre defining game (Halo, GTA, Goldeneye), or has better graphics than anything else (Metal Gear 2, Gears of War, Mario 64). I know many people who bought consoles for Goldeneye, Halo and GTA, myself included. Resistance, while good, did not excel, and I don't know of anyone who bought a PS3 simply to play it, and nothing else (as was the case in the other games). In time, there will be "killer" PS3 games, but at the moment, there aren't any. Fin© 21:54, 18 June 2007 (UTC)
Hi. I think the fact that you dislike Pro Evolution Soccer validates my argument, that the Killer game article is subjective. Yes, the IGN.com article was positive, but I would trust the Gamespot, Eurogamer and Edge articles before IGN. They all classed Resistance as "good", but not brilliant. You can't say a game is "killer" simply because one website says so. If you look at something like Halo or GTA, they got almost unanimous good reviews, from all websites and publications. You also say that the people you know didn't buy the PS3 solely to play Resistance, which again validates my argument. People bought an N64 and Goldeneye on its own, or a PS2 and GTA3, or an Xbox and Halo. Also, your assertion that Gears of War "sucks" is again subjective and POV, and the majority of websites disagree with your statement, which is why Gears of War is included as a "killer game".

Fair point about LCS, I'll remove it later on (indeed, I was thinking of removing it a while ago). I didn't say I'd trust Gamespot above all other reviews, I said I'd trust Gamespot before IGN. Also, I didn't say that a killer game should "drastically improve" console sales, I said it usually causes people to "take a far greater interest" in said console, which I don't think Resistance (nor PES, hence my point) has done. If you're judging a killer games based on sales, you only have to look at Cars. Fin© 15:14, 19 June 2007 (UTC)
