    There's also the fact that FPS and other types of gun games (Resident Evil, Metal Gear Solid, Fall Out, Etc.) pretty much dominate the game market these days. Can we just move on from that topic?

    I always felt the Playstation had a lot of underrated RPGs. Saga Frontier, Legend of Legia, and Star Ocean: Second Story were some of my personal favorites.

    None of those games are dominating anything. Fall Out's sales are okay.

    I'd like a Snap sequel, just to see more of the pokemon actually in motion. But yeah, it was not very well received early on, as far as I can tell. No matter how much it's liked now, I think that'd be a huge stumbling block, sadly.

    Whatever. I'm just saying that Gun games in general seem to be dominant among video games, but I guess it's just me.

    They are. A big brawny soldier appeals to 13 year olds somehow, and they're the biggest market.

    System Shock 2 is a pretty obvious answer.

    Not many people play Ricochet either (though, it is a game released in 1999).

    Oh, Snap! That was an awesome game! I remember playing it with a few friends for hours on end on his N64 back in the day. I really hope they make a sequel to it some day.

    Credits to Sworn Metalhead for the awesome banner!

    I don't think that counts, since it didn't sell well but since then has become hyper-popular, and in fact right now is the top-selling game on GOG.

    Same with Earthbound.

    Please don't do that.

    Besides that, I really didn't. Yes, I've heard a lot about Pokemon on hear and DeviantArt, but in a lot of other places I go to, all I EVER hear about is Call of Duty, or Resident Evil, or other games like that. Heck, even HERE, I hear too much about Call of Duty and such. So for me to say "Any game that doesn't have guns," is actually not as far off as you think. You're just going to different communities. I'm not using made up facts, you are just starting to be a jerk. Case closed. Drop it.

    I've seen a few comments on Earthbound, but I can think of a lot of other RPGs that never made it, and a lot of them are overshadowed by Final Fantasy (And to a lesser extent, Chrono Trigger). I remember Secret of Mana, Terranigma, Illusion of Gaia, and a few others.

    Oh man that made me laugh, since no one was actually bullying you and was actually telling just how wrong you were.

    Uhh... No. Telling me there are popular non-shooters isn't bullying. But doing it rudely is.

    Charizard wasn't even rude. You were using personal experiences on unknown forums to pass your statements as fact. He pretty much told you everything that was wrong with your statements.


    Stop thinking that every time someone corrects you it's "bullying."

    Fun fact: People tend to get a little annoyed when someone barely considers what they say and keeps saying "I hear a lot of talk about shooters so that means very few non-shooters sell well".

    I wouldn't even call their posts rude anyway.

    ...Did we read the same post? He used a lot of rude sarcasm in his post and acted like the target was an idiot. I hardly consider that "Not rude."

    And that's personal experience that all I ever hear about in most forums is shooters. Sue me. If you think I'm wrong, tell me politely. Because this...

    Have you tried maybe not bringing it up anymore? We could have been done a long time ago if you'd just walked away.

    If everyone else wants to drop it and stop being a jerk, than I'll stop bringing it up.

    Now that I think of it, speaking of genres, there are actually quite a few genres that go without saying now-adays. For example, fighting games. I go to a Fighting Game forum where they're obviously talked about a lot, but anywhere else I go there's very little discussion on them. It's kind of a shame because Fighting Games are among my favorite games.

    Being rude doesn't mean that he was bullying you. Which is what you though he was doing.

    It's funny how you keep mentioning "most forums" but you never actually back up your statement by saying which one it is, for we know you could be going to a Call of Duty forum.

    But then he would be letting the "bully" win and gosh darn it we can't let the evil mean "bully" win.

    Yeah, most fighting games are kind of niche. I just wish that people who discuss the genre would realize there's more to it than Smash Bros., Skullgirls and Street Fighter... e.g. Guilty Gear.

    Yeah. I think Fighting Games period are underrated. Samurai Shodown, Soul Caliber, King of Fighters, Tekken, Darkstalkers, Last Blade and of coarse a lot of obscure one-hit-wonders too like Cyberbots, Warzard, WakuWaku 7, Rakuga Kids, etc.

    For heaven's sake not this again

    Bullying: MugoUrth you're an idiot and you should go and do something bad to yourself because no one likes you. I'm gonna harass you by sending you horrible messages now.

    Not Bullying: MugoUrth your opinions are really stupid.
