never liked his games/aka wanna be movies things ...He is completely unimagined guy and by saying these things only expose his ignorance about games....

I'm surprised he didn't say the future of video games is in the hands of failed film majors.

SpiralTear1392d ago

It sure isn't in YOUR hands, Dave, that's for sure.

I totally agree. A great majority of the new gameplay mechanics are coming from indie devs. They are allowed to take chances and make mistakes. They don't have publishers breathing down their necks.

That's not to say all AAA developers are playing it safe. Many of them, like Insomniac with Sunset Overdrive or Naughty Dog with The Last of Us, aren't afraid to try new things.

At the end of the day, a good developer is a good developer, indie or not. I love Cage and I hope to be playing his games for a long time.

Naughty Dog is an amazing developer, with at least 2 titles that I would consider to be clear GOTY winners (Uncharted 2 and The Last of Us) easily one of the best in the world, but I would never class them as risk takers.

Agreed, especially with Uncharted 2. Nothing unique about it, its just a mesh of countless other games/ideas. With that said, it is by far my most memorable PS3 game and deserves the Nobel prize for significant contributions towards awesomeness in gaming.

I fully agree with Perjoss ..
Uncharted 2 and The Last of Us are good games but they're not a risk takers , the same can be said for GTA V and most games

but the thing is a good game is a good game
it doesn't matter if they're risk takers or not.

Conzul1391d ago

Well, trends are a thing.

I'm sure that more games are good that take risks than those that don't.

Kinda the backbone of the Xbox vs. Playstation thing in the first place.

They had Jak & Daxter, a very successful franchise. Then, they scrapped it to work on Uncharted. They had Uncharted, a very successful franchise. They pulled half their team off Uncharted to work on The Last of Us. Most AAA developers these days find a successful franchise and stick with it until it becomes dull. That's my point.

lolosgolos1392d ago

No that's not true David, Only Sony is promoting that notion due to AAA funding constraints

Omran1392d ago

yet they have more AAA titles than the competition :)

Spotie1392d ago

I can't believe there are people out there foolish enough to agree with you...
