    Im excited for the next installment in the series. But, I hope that they created the charcters abillites and strenght near equal because in MVC2 the 2 that everybody would use cable or iron man, and would countinously use their powers and it was pretty hard to maneuver around them

    As one of the younger generation, in my teens, I have to say the multi-player obsession is a problem with our generation, however I find myself against that, for lack of a better word, stereotype, I love the single players of games, don't get me wrong I play multi-player games, like COD4&6 And BFBC 2 but the single player of games like GOW3, uncharted and ratchet and clank are my love of video games. It may be because I grew up on my dad's old NES playing Zelda, Mario and Space Fortress.

    Overall single player game are what a look for, multi-player is great but not a necessity in my opinion.

    ive been playing games for about 8 years, and i just started to play online game about 2 1/2 years ago, so i always choose single player games over multiplayer focused games

    in most sand box games i dont really care about the story as much as i care about exploration, its sad to say but thats just me, like in fallout 3, the side quest you get are as good as if not better than the main quest line, but that really helped me enjoy the full game, so if i got bored of the main quest line i could find something else to do, and when you have an open world game you really need to have hidden items, like in JC2 they have the drug drops, skulls and everything else, but with those hidden items you need rewards, thats where JC2 fell short for me, but thats just how i feel about that subject, great show, i cant wait for RED DEAD REDEMPTION!!!

    I think we're all operating under a false premise. I know there is a definition for the word art but art, by it's very definition, is undefinable.

    art: (noun) - the quality, production, expression, or realm, according to aesthetic principles, of what is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance.

    In other words, art is subjective. Many people can tell you what is art and what is acceptable but they are no more an authority on the subject than you.

    Another definition: Art is the process or product of deliberately arranging elements in a way to affect the senses or emotions.

    By this definition many video games over the last 20 years could be considered art. Many, many people have had many different emotions come to them while playing a video game. Much of this is the presentation and game play in the game but a lot of it comes from the player. So I say the player is part of that art. Rather as a contributing artist to the over all work or merely an interactive piece of it. At least that is if we accepted the above definition but as I said before art is basically has no definition.

    Art culture is an elitist culture that feels it must be so to preserve the value of art but I say art has no value other than what you place on it, so if you allow a person or group of people to define art for you then you will almost assuredly accept the value they place in it. In the end you really lose site of the point of art. When it has to fit an acceptable definition or criteria it stops becoming art and just another manufactured product, which it probably all is to begin with.

    Are video games art? I guess I don't really care. Is the logo on my Dr. Pepper art? All I know is, if a painting of a can of soup can be art or a dissected horse then , darn it, Final Fantasy 7 is art. Half Life 2 is art. GTA and Flower are art. Look at the landscapes in Uncharted 2. Yes they used computers and mouse clicks instead of paintbrushes and oil paints but the end result was no less awe inspiring. At least not to me. The same feelings I get reading a great book or watching a great movie come out when I'm playing a great game. At the end of the day, though, I don't really care. Not because I believe games aren't art but because it's a false argument. If you think it's art then it's art, and no critic, no matter how well paid or well respected, can tell you otherwise. I would also say, just enjoy games for what they are, great fun.

    first i would like the point out the difference between a friend of someone saying that someone never plays games without multiplayer, and someone actually stating that they will not play a game without multiplayer.

    I am 23 and i am an evil gamer that plays virtually no new single player games... and Gaff is not my friend to my knowledge.

    why do i play virtually no new single player games? i am unable to immerse myself in games. i dont ever feel any feelings towards characters in games. i don't know why it is, maybe it was a defense mechanism when i was a kid so that i would not be traumatized when Link, Mario, and Megaman would constantly die over and over again. Whatever it is, it has carried onto my adult life, where i failed to connect to any characters or feel any concern for them, and without feeling concern for the main character or any other character in the single player games, its hard to find a reason to continue after an hour or two into the game.

    this doesnt mean i don't play any singleplayer games, i still play old NES and SNES singleplayer games and i still play the occasional new singleplayer game such as Super Mario Bros. for the wii, or blood for the pc (although it technically has a multiplayer and technically its not very new). the fun and quirky sound effects, along with good music typically helps me enjoy these types of games, but they are really exceptions to the rule and i am sure some of my friends would complain that i don't play games without a multiplayer.

    I'd just like to point out that the drop in system is technically already in place. You can play through borderlands online alone. Then at any point in the game someone can jump into your game, and the creatures get strong, game stays exactly the same, just gets harder.

    Feedback is the best thing G4 has going for it, i love it.

    Marvel vs. Capcom3... long overdue, can't wait.

    Roger Ebert? I think he needs to stop reviewing so many crappy movies and pick up a controller. There's plenty of video games out there that offer a way more fulfilling experience than most movies out there. Though there is a lot of shovelware out there in the ether. Overall though, videogames have grown into a form of art that we're not really sure how to classify it, because so much goes into it from sooo many different people. Most of what we consider art is of the "oh yes this is the so-and-so by this fella. look upon it and enjoy." variety.

    Best fro? Patrick haha

    I think a Superman game could be successful if they took the correct story arc. Patrick is right with the "stripped powers" idea.

    They could for instance do the "Death of Superman" arc, start you the way you start in God of War, as Superman maxed out on power, only to be killed, and you have to play the parts of the four Supermen, who are much less powerful, but gained power as the story continued. I don't know it that's what they did in Superman 64, I honestly have never played a single Superman game.

    Also, once Superman returned, he had to use jet boots for a while, so if they had a flying mechanic that worked, they could make it purposefully more frustrating when using the boots.

    ok this are games art thing has gone on long enough. is watching movies art? no! is reading poetry art? no! is listening to music art? no! it's an activity for fun. the making of games/music/movies/poetry has an art to it and can be art but that doesn't make them all art.

    and another thing thank you feedback for continually pointing out that not all games need multiplayier.
    a lot of games don't need them. and curse you Abbie. my girl friend got made at me for watching this because your hotter than she is.
