Has anyone noticed how games are getting boring? It’s the same damn game play with a new coat of paint and some tweaks. ALL MMO’s want to be WoW, all FSP’s can trace there game play back to Half-life or Doom. Puzzle games? Hell 1/2 of them are clones of some other puzzle game. You pay hundreds of dollars to play a remake of pac-man!?
It’s kind of the same thing as the movie industry, the MPAA bitches that they aren’t making any money from movies. Then you get movies like the new Batman.
It comes down to, if you make a GOOD movie people will go see it. The RIAA complains they aren’t making any money, yet there are a number of artists that have platinum records.
at least with the Internet we don’t have only a few songs shoved down our throat.
Is this was is beginning to happen in the gaming industry? A bunch of clones and whiners with a couple gems released every couple of years? A few games released to LIVE and PSN because that’s what Microsoft/Sony want us to make popular? is there anything new an interesting coming down the pipe?
Are the major players in the field just getting too big so the whole ‘Corporate’ mentality is starting to take hold? Will they force us into another time where all gamers just said screw this, gaming is stupid and cause another gaming crash? Can indy developers games save the face of gaming?
What’s your thoughts/ideas on the subject?
