Innovation in the video game industry, is it dead?

"Publishers and developers don’t want to do something that does not work. The game’s we have seen release lately are evident of this. They want to guarantee that they will get a return on the money invested into the development of a game. That’s where some of the problem lies: money."

Industry gets older, the more innovation will be harder to come by. It is still there though, just play the unfinished swan to no that.

Nobody will throw money for something like unfinished swan, it is priced to high, and no one knows what he will get with games like that, unlike CoD.
And I agree with the article, a saw no innovation in gow1->gow3, I was already bored with the second gow.
But some peoples are eagerly excited to play gow4 just for the graphics.

And that is what I think is wrong with the industry, soon we will get new consoles but games will remain the same, only the number in title will change, and the saddest thing is that today's gamers are fine with it.

Is the industry dead, I don't know. But I will say graphics are getting better, computer speed are faster and Internet speeds are going up... Why is lag getting worst!

Graphic driven fans have hand cuff the industry. Halo 2 with my 3 mb connection had less lag that all the games played with my Comcast 50mb connection.

Thank you mine craft for proving that low res is still fun for many!
Why does space invaders have better hit detection than BO2? We are going backwards in someways.

It's all about playing safe. Working on the same formula to make sure it's a game that will give you profit. At this moment, there's no time for experimentation in the industry of video games.

No deff not, a lot of the games coming out this year are the most unique we've seen in a while. And a lot of it has to do with the indie side of things.

innovation comes to pc first usually, when it works then it goes on consoles as well. its just easier for the little guys to start on pc, then the suits gobble up the ideas and go multiplat.

Maybe for AAA games, but the indie scene is amazing and making some incredible stuff. Its a great time for games for sure.
