The Sad Truth about the future of Gaming :'(

#1BlackFeathersPosted 5/21/2013 2:10:57 AM
Video Games are getting shorter and Prettier :/.

Production costs are rising but NOT because the quality of the game is increasing, only the graphics. As the demand for better graphics increase, devs will spend more time making games look pretty than anything else. Look at FF13, one of the sexiest looking games I've ever seen. But they cut sooo much out of it and made the game a hallway.

You know People's standards are dropping when a game is only 4 hours long and Everyone is ok with it. :/

I could rant more but I'm at work. So to sum it up, overtime Graphics will Increase while everything else decreases.

Vanquish was something like 4-6 hours of utterly AMAZING gameplay for me, so it was worth EVERY penny of full price.

If you don't like something, don't buy it. Period.

Games ARE still quality, you just have to find them. And if you can't, then play retro games and leave it alone. Simple as that.

I can't play retro games for the rest of my life. :/ What's the last game(s) that you bought that totally blew your mind?

I totally agree and its very sad to see games going that way. :(

Personally playability is 1000x more important than fancy graphics. I'm playing Monster Hunter 3 U right now, have put 114 hours into it and theres many 100's more but its not pretty, the graphics are quite poor but I don't care, its pure fun.

The current gaming generation still need to learn that graphics aren't the 'be all and end all' of gaming.

Bioshock Infinite. A game that is awesome in the gameplay department, but also has something to say as well, which you don't see much in games.

Or was that one too short for you as well? LOL.

I only care about the quality of the game, not the quantity.
