Great stuff and I completely agree. The industry needs to mature and open up to more genres than violence.

RXL1270d ago

like what?...

games that you don't need to kill people in order to progress or win?

like

Dishonored
Metal Gear Series
Deus Ex

or games that aren't actually focused on the violence but more the story?

like

(including the aforementioned games)
Heavy Rain
Uncharted
Enslaved

probably one of the most highest profile games is a violent one and you let your kids play it

Super Mario games

going around crushing your enemies under your boots literally every two seconds and murdering the main villain by throwing him into the sun?

talk about violent and immature!

Like Spec Ops The Line. Gameplay might not be that exciting as other TPS but it does the job and the story is truly amazing.

It will probably never catch on, at least for a while. Even some of the most kid friendly movies still have violence in it. Cartoon violence.

I think we will keep getting more art games, but it will never be mainstream. just like art movies no one likes, but get respected by the industry.

Is that why you take a more violent action approach?

Allsystemgamer1270d ago

It's a hypocritical statement that's for sure. This is the most violent sc to date...

Calling the kettle black I see...
unbelievable. and coming from someone who is in the process of obliterating a franchise by "making the player feel like an experienced killer".

Even in PSOM he said he wants people to not worry about "aiming and feeling fragile and stuff".
He is the posterchild of a (newly redefined) game that uses mindless, shameless slaughter as a key selling point.

Ok thank you this article means alot to me. The franchise has gone downhill complacently the past few years. After chaos theory the mp and co op have slowly gone bad starting with double agent. If any of you splinter cell fans enjoyed splinter cell chaos theory versus please check out my videos. This also proves my point on how MP games have been tacked on the past few franchises.
