People are afraid to try new things. That's why Crap of Doody is still up there. Same reason Counter-Strike kids go ape shit when VALVe change ONE thing in their game.

Same reason mario is once again 2d, with a 2d 3ds spin off also on the way.. yeah man, people obviously are afraid to try new things.

It's been 20 years. It's time for new IPs, Nintendo.

I like to see Mr.Miyamoto develop for Microsoft or Sony. He's bound to be constrained by the, most always, low powered hardware that Nintendo keeps releasing to the market.

Resident Evil 6?

Simple fact about shooters is that when you think about how would you make your own. Ok you need guns maybe a ADS option and an enemy with a gun. The setting could be in the middle-east because its super easy to make up a reason why the US army is there. Not much effort right?

Now try a platformer. You gotta put quite a few weeks maybe months into what the enviroment is like and do you want the environment to be interact-able. You need to know what could make and break your games mechanics (like POP reboots claw which ruined the platforming). Also look at Mirrors edge; Controls must have taken a month alone to make a confortable layout for that sort of gameplay. Then you need to make areas which are hard to platform and require like 30 secs worth of non stop moving where 1 wrong move will result in death or having to start over.

Now this is a simple reason for why there are more shooters than any other genre of game. Plus if you wanna be down with the kids you gotta play 'em :3

But they're usually the most popular type of game, and companies will always go where there's money to be made.

meganick2101d ago

That's unfortunately true.

camel_toad2101d ago

As opposed to the ultra violence of stomping on innocent turtles? Burning creatures alive with fireballs? Miyamoto is so hypocritical.

Moby-Royale2101d ago

I believe that you missed his point.

Quite sure, in fact.

camel_toad2101d ago

I believe you missed the extremely obvious sarcasm.

Moby-Royale2101d ago

Mine was totally meant to be sarcastic too.

*rolls eyes*

See how easy it is to say?

Mario Galaxy had a gun.

It shot water, but still...

NovusTerminus2101d ago

Was that not Mario Sunshine? OR did it return in Galaxy?

Bathyj2101d ago

Oh yeah.
Sorry, my bad.

rambler2101d ago

Flash Liquidizer Ultra Dousing Device. not a gun.

Bathyj2101d ago

You can call it the 'Zero point energy field manipulator' if you really want to.

I call it a Gravity Gun.

rambler2101d ago

You can call it a gun if you want. I call it a hose.
