Gears breaking new ground?
For some of you, I may be preaching to the choire, you may know other titles that have proceeded my experience in this matter. To me, when Gears of War came out, the cover, peak around the corner, etc, came from a great game. Syphon Filter, to me, was the first game to actually capitalize on this type of game play on the Playstation.
For you that have not played the original on PS1, do it, if you have access to one, Syphon Filter 1 and it's sequal are games worth playing. For many of you Gears of War was your first experience taking cover and firing around corners, but for many others, we can remeniss this type of game play (although it may have been perpitrated by previous titles) Syphon Filter was actually the first game, in my opinion, to actually have the AI and the character interactions succeed at the same time, in a harmonious fashion.
Laying the groundwork
Laying the road for block busters like GOW. So when you're ducking behind a burnt car and blindfiring at some fool, pay homanage to one of the greatest games on PS1 ever made. I can't wait for GOW2, look forward to chainsawing some chumps. Look forward to me blogging on some other great PS1 games, like Medevil, Fable, and let's not forget, Tenchu, dude,,,, are you kidding me? Yes, the PS came out with the shizzzooohhh back in the day, hope they can pull their head out of their a$$ and come up with some stuff that'll make me fork out half a G to buy a PS3, untill next time,, see you on Xbox Live.
