Death to the Games Industry!

I just saw this link posted on /. and I couldn’t agree more. What has happened to games? What has happened to the game industry? Once a source of so much innovation, now a hollywood-esque nightmare of marketing and PR wank.

I remember back in the day listening to my bro and bro-in-law eulogising about the merits of various games in terms of the game play, the innovation / variation on a theme, etc. This is no longer the case. Kids these days talk about the realism, the violence; incidentals that were previously of little more than novelty value.

It seems the marketing people have won, and the new generation of gamers are a different breed altogether. The new generation of gamer, like the marketing person, doesn’t seem to understand gaming at all.

    No way dude. Gameplay is everything, but theres nothing more satisfying than blowing a guys head off with PSG Snipers rifle and seeing the blood making a splash over the wall…

    Im still talking about gaming of course! 🙂
