    We're too lazy to steal.

    I accepted the fact that this wasn't going to be MS's answer to Sony's HOME when it launched (seriously, how hard would it be to have a free-roam mode with controllable Avatar's?)
    Anyone with sense would have turned that off immediately. The less anything resembles HOME, the better.

    I've played the 2600 for over 3 decades, so my interest in those games is pretty much gone. Yeah, I bought River Raid and River Raid 2, but would it be too much to ask for the updated versions of those games from the 5200 and C-64?

    I started having a bad feelings about the future of this, when news broke about several of the key people behind the project being let go. I have a feeling this will die, much like 1 vs. 100, with little fanfare.

    It's a damn shame. I was really hoping Game Room would get better. I accepted the fact that this wasn't going to be MS's answer to Sony's HOME when it launched (seriously, how hard would it be to have a free-roam mode with controllable Avatar's?), but at least thought they'd have a lot better titles in the pipeline than what they've offered so far. Food Fight would be most welcome, but Data East titles would absolutely rule.

    Karnov and Bad Dudes alone would increase my interest in GR 1000x over.

    I love the idea, but I feel the same way; they haven't done anything with it. I was waiting for some games I'd be more into but that hasn't happened yet.

    Microsoft has treated this poorly. There is zero reason to leave my emu and previous arcade comps behind, esp since they're either cheap or free. Releasing games that people wanna play would be a good start for GR.

    I agree with Bacon 100% on Atari and Activision. But even among 2600 games on Game Room, they manage to fuck up and spell Yars' Revenge wrong.

    I despise the way that Atari (and Activision) consistently act as though the 2600 was the only system they ever made when it comes to retro ports and compilations, and they're doing that to sparkling effect yet again here.

    But yes, the dearth of participating companies is probably the biggest problem. When you can't get fuckin' Namco to throw a bunch of rom dumps at your service, you've got to know you're doing something dreadfully wrong.

    The Gameroom of this gen seems a lot like XBLA of last gen. Incorporated way too late to be of any substance and instead is being used as a litmus test for what will probably be a better visualized concept at day one of the next system.

    2600 Pac-Man is a game I wanna play .... again.

    There are a bunch of games I want to play in there.

    But they are all 2600 paddle games and the controls suck a giant fat cock on the 3d pad.

    That and all the 2600 versions of games that should be ignored and the Arcade version put up there....

    Capcom et. al. know they can get more money repackaging/remaking fewer titles on their own than dumping a bunch of games on Game Room, and they're not wrong.

    Personally, I dislike all the avatar stuff standing between me and a game. Same with that Summer of Arcade nonsense.

    Advocate's racism gimmick is getting kind of stringy, am I right?

    MS has dropped the ball on just about everything, since they had that top spot.
