GamerFitNation's Brandon Russo writes: "Recently, I picked up Castlevania and Ninja Gaiden for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). I had to ask myself this question:

although i like a fair balance of both, i'd end up choosing arcade experience. i had tons of fun playing pacman and didn't really know what the story to the game was.

Angry birds, subway surfers, all the mindless FPS's, starcraft online and all the MOBA's..uh, no I don't think the 'arcade experience' is going anywhere.

It depends on the game. Certain games are better if the story is focused on and some are perfectly fine having almost no story at all.

If story is the focus, it better be a really good story.

If how the game plays is the focus, the game better not suck.

Too many games this gen took 5 steps forward and 4 steps back with each game that was made.

The obvious things were overlooked and focus was on many things people didn't even want.

I think creativity wins this gen.
