Destructoid: How Dishonored, Skyrim and Fallout find success where none should be

Jim Sterling writes "The game industry tells us many things in order to justify its various activities. Multiplayer is added to so many games because solo experiences are dying. Online passes are needed because used games are killing creativity. Creativity is dead because new intellectual property is too difficult to establish. "

because they are immersive open-world games, most gamers spend many many hours just living in these worlds so few sell their copies.

old fashioned liner SP games are a hard sell for consumers these days.

IMO, dishonored wasn't even that good. Fallout and Skyrim are on a league of their own.

TechnicianTed1259d ago

I'd disagree. Dishonored was up there with the Thief series for setting, dialogue and choice of how you tackled a target.

Very few games come close to what Dishonored achieved.

fatslimman11259d ago

yeah, a league of glitches. skyrim and fallout are open world and all but they seem shallow to me in the details like the ai. skyrim is a wide as an oceon and as deep as a puddle. however it is still immensly fun for the first 15 hours or so

Yeah, we need a sort of perspective for The elder scrolls or fallout I guess. I remember when the elder scrolls 4 was being released, people couldn't stress enough that this game was to be looked at as the overall package. It is very appearent the AI sucks, and as you mentioned "a league of glitches", but it was extremely immersible. Oblivion shall I should say. I played the heaping crap out of Fallout 3 and Oblivion. Neither did Skyrim or New Vegas keep my interest for over a month. Still can't point out why, just didn't have the "magic" of the first games :P

I rarely play multiplayer games, so I'm guilty of buying sp games and contributing to keeping them alive.

actually, dishonored was mostly back track and its not really even open world. all you did was a section at a time. its still a good game but i though they could've done better. plus i was a little disappointed that it didn't have new game plus.

I couldn't finish Dishonored. It was boring for me for some reason... I might get back to it after I'm done with Bioshock Infinite.

BlackTar1871259d ago

I finished it but i had the same feeling. I found my self yawning thru most of the game and usually the genre they tackled is my cup of tea
