7DFPS: There's nothing new under the gun?

By Christian Donlan:
Somebody once told me that the earliest piece of writing archaeologists have yet discovered is a rant complaining that all the great tales have already been told. This story's almost certainly apocryphal, but it certainly feels like us, the human race. It sounds like the sort of thing we might say.

In games, we get it all the time, in fact. Hardly a month goes by without someone complaining that a genre's been played out, that we're locked in a cycle of mindless repetition, and that, you know, all the great tales have already been told. This is bobbins, and now the Seven Day FPS game jam is here to help prove it. (Indie, PC)
