@JRock3x8 said:I am hearing a lot of disappointment in this fall's bombcast. Modern warfare 3 was met with a lot of conversation pining for a next step or the future, not more of the same. SW TOR feedback was oh god, not more WoW. So where are we going for video games? Is a hardware transition necessary for new gaming experiences? Is it just developers coming up with new viable experiences that will sell well? Is all of this more of the same just a symptom of the down economy and hence developers won't take risks? I find it amazing that even hugely popular licenses like Mechwarrior can't get funding for a new multiplatform game. So what will it take for us to move forward in gaming? Is innovation just better graphics? Is it better motion control? 3D? Better online experiences?
I'd say not everybody agrees with that general feel you perceive:
I've seen that sentiment in a few places and find it really odd. I haven't been so let down by a year in gaming since 2006, and at least that year had Okami, Gears of War and New Super Mario Bros. I honestly don't think I'll have a game of the year to pick this year and I've played Dead Space 2, Skyrim, Skyward Sword, Portal 2, Gears 3, Uncharted 3, Arkham City, Ocarina of Time 3D, Rayman Origins, Bastion...some of those are good, great even, but not stellar in any way that I would love to gush about them.
