Eurogamer: AAA devs too focused on cinematic games

#1FFXIgaiaknightPosted 6/23/2013 10:29:58 PM
this is a very good read
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-06-22-systems-vs-stories

couple quotes from the article

"It's notable that calling a game "cinematic" is considered high praise, while saying a movie is "like a video game" is one of the worst insults a film critic can wield."

"The simple truth is that games are not films, and they never were"

Monolith Soft put all gameplay and stories together in Xenoblade Chronicles and they will in Monolith Soft's X.

No joke, I play way more indie and Nintendo titles simply because I don't have to sit through cinematics or 'gameplay' that's actually you just moving the camera around a straight corridor.

Yet you give no examples of games that do that.

I'm glad you can spout nonsense without knowing what you're talking about. :-)

Now hurry up and Google something really quick so you can save some face.

Nah, he admitted defeat. He'd probably settle out of court.

The Last of Us is the worst one. 'Games' like it are some of the very worst things to happen to the video game industry. I will stick to Nintendo since they actually make games instead of interactive movies.

Ladies and gentlemen close the polls we have unanimously found our winner of "Hypocrite of the Year" award! Yes folks it is unbelievable but sonic777 has done it sonic777. Has. Done. It!

On topic thanks for the read and I agree. I prefer Mark of the Ninja and Hotline Miami easily over Uncharted or Heavy Rain (examples provided as our hypocrite od the year suffers from blind fanboyism and ignorance. Always remember we're here to help you one day become a reasonable and properly informed adult).

"I don't like to play any game where you hit a ball or puck with a stick of any kind."

But I didn't give any examples of game where you do that. I guess I'm spouting nonsense in sonic777's world.
