Arkidas is an unknown quantity at this point

Do you like semi-games?

What I mean by semi-games is games that are only made for hand-held consoles like the DS(i). Real games would be games for TV consoled ( PS3, Wii, Xbox360, etc... ).

I really don't like semi-games. I loved Kingdom Hearts I & II but now they're just pumping out KH semi-games which I have no interest in playing at all, even though the story might still be great. I'd prefer to just read the book if there was one.

I do like some hand-held console games, but I really dislike when they make sequels of really great games like KH just for hand-held consoles.
The Pokemon games are, on the other hand, a good example of the right games for hand-held consoles in my opinion.

What do you think?

i agree. interesting terminology as well.


the same thing is happening with the Metal Gear Solid series. they finally got it through their heads that people eat this crap up, so BOOM, we've got a PSP game, an arcade version, a spin-off, and even an iPhone app.

I don't think this thread is about handheld games so much as lazy games.

I don't get exactly what semi games is but I don't play everybody's third and second party games. I only like first party except for Sonic and select others like Pac-Man.

Hey just because they want a game or two of the series on the handheld doesn't make them lazy. Stop complaining, it only matters if the game is good or not who cares. The games just aren't necessary for the big consoles and would be more of a waste of time. Besides, 385/2 Days is for people with no PS2 or 3 to experience the series a bit better. That is kinda useless I admit, who would get involved in the series by playing a game thats right in the middle of the series life time and spoils them about previous games? (*cough*me*cough)

But its not that bad of thing jeese, but I'll admit I like ports better, though porting a game is lazily done half the time.

Handheld games aren't that bad >_>
Sure they want money but you cannot take your console everywhere.
and yes I don't like the idea making bid titles just for the hell of it, i prefer games that are original to the company/console/handheld.

Semi games such as Pokémon and Mario are usually good.

I like handheld games. So much more convenient than home consoles. But I guess it is a slap in the face to fans when prequels and sequels are made exclusive to the handhelds.
