What about Mirror's Edge or Dead Space? Those are pretty innovative and have stories.
He was talking about downloadable titles, the games you mention are both non-downloadable so you'll have to come up with something else to proove him wrong. Wink
I was not thinking Sad

Braid is the best example I can think of. However that's only 1 title among hundreds out there as DLC.
Braid's a good example. But I'd say flOw, Flower, Pixeljunk Eden, World of Goo, Noby Noby Boy, and Everyday Shooter as well.

I forgot about Geometry Wars 1 & 2! Also Cloning Clyde is a very fun and underrated game. Cool

I'm having a hard time understanding why I would pay €60 (or sometimes even €70) for any game.

I agree with that kinda. I cant spend 50+ on a new game but a CIB Atari 2600 game no problem.

What's the difference? I guarantee you'll get less play out of the 2600 game.

I agree with Tondog. 2600 games really can't hold my attention for long. Maybe it's because I'm too young to fully appreciate them, but I can't imagine playing Combat or Asteroids for 50+ hours.

What I mean with my original statement is that I'd rather buy a last-gen game for €10-20 than a new game for €50-70, when I get just as much enjoyment out of the last-gen game.

Because in most cases the Atari game I buy for 50 I can resell for 50. New games you buy for 50 you are lucky to get 20 for them. It is all because I know that new 60 dollar game will be 15 within a year and I have plenty of other stuff I can play.
