Ugly Trends In Gaming

Koku Gamer writes: "The current generation of consoles has allowed developers and publishers to experiment with new ideas and concepts. Game consoles are not just about the games anymore. Essentially they've become the main entertainment hub in the living room. They play movies and music. They have built in web browsers and you can even view and share photos. It doesn't just end there as now they're becoming your gateway to social networking with the inclusion of Facebook and Twitter applications that are coming to the Xbox 360. These are just a faction of the trends in gaming that were seeing today."

Its like investing your money in the bank of gamestop to get a bunch of worthless crap like a comic book or an action figure.

I feel the same way about CE's. 9 times out of 10 they are completely pointless. I'm still trying to find a use for my RE5 handbag! The whole point of a collectors edition is that its supposed to be rare, not so you can find it at any given game store. It should appreciate in value, not depreciate. Its a scam.

Other things that bother me:

Shoehorning MP modes in every game.

Making every game a Sandbox title.

And people claiming motion controls are "Teh future". Not even close. Next year the trend will be 3-D graphics.

While none of these trends are psotive for the consumer, they are all a plus for the publishers at getting more money from our wallets.

Peripherals are really starting to get annoying, though it certainly would be interesting to try tony hawk ride, even if it may not be completely necessary
