Proof of Concept Games Sold/Advertised as Complete Games

Several times throughout gaming’s history, more recently (past 5 or so years) however, many games have been released that are little more than better developed demos with systems one would expect to find in a completely created game. By all accounts, the core mechanics to the games are barebones with little creative variety added to them. With that said, those core mechanics can be well-developed by themselves. Those qualities lead to what I (Andrew Otton) would call “Proof of Concept” games. (Assassin's Creed, Culture, Industry, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, TitanFall)
