dumb question i know, but nowadays since i hear that term so much what is it?
are they the game equivalent of a summer blockbuster movie? just a high cost technical explosion feast? because so far thats what it seems.
nowadays there's like 2 tiers of games, top level AAA and indie, why is that? there used to be a middle ground, i've played many indie/cheaper/lesser known games that are insanely fun & then theres the big titles that were imo quite boring.
it just seems to me that the cheaper titles are more game-ish? while bigger titles are like movies that let you join in sometimes, its like each new title takes a bit more of the gameplay away each time. seems the longer a series lives the less you can really do. story is great to have, wicked visuals are a bonus but if they outnumber the gameplay in a videogame then something needs to be tweaked.
thats why i always thought it was funny people bashed asura's wrath when it seems thats where games are headed anyways
