Xboxist writes: "This year will see the release of two groundbreaking games for the current generation of home consoles. Long neglected, the adventure game genre is not only poised to make a comeback, it has the potential to define and reinvigorate console gaming at a time when many observers are asking, what's next? To be sure, when the current generation of video game hardware kicked off in 2005, the public was thrilled with the ability of game developers to render bigger, badder explosions and thrills than ever before. However, missing from this generation of video game thrills has been a corresponding leap in terms of immersion and storytelling. Up until now, it has sometimes felt as though we are simply playing the same games from a decade ago, just with a snazzier coat of high-definition paint. All eyes will now be focused on Remedy Entertainment and Quantic Dream, to see if their upcoming creations can provide some new direction to the video game industry as a whole."
