Nice header image, and some good thoughts here. Old style narratives should never die out.

I agree that some recent AAA title’s story/ characters feel unimagined and could use much more originality. I’m looking at Faith of Mirror’s Edge, Marcus Fenix and Dom, and even the crew from Dead Space.

They are cliches… where are this generations Marios, Sonics, and Links?

depends on what you mean by fun. I like Mirror's Edge, some don't.
