CC: BioShock 2 certainly brings a different scenario to your modern combat first person shooter your stuck to every night after school or work. And 2K Marin's Ken Levine believes that gamers will like it for that reason. Because it's different.
Good ol' 2K...
He's right, there are so many games these days that are only Differentiated by the somewhat weak story. We need more brilliantly thought out original games like Bioshock!
New IP's instead of Final Fantasy after Final Fantasy after Final Fantasy please Square Enix! 2K know what they're talking about and know when to take a break from a series, and bring a new IP out.
I like variety and I like trying different types of games and gameplay types.
That's the attitude all devs should have!
Making a shooter or developing on the Wii. Also, though I do agree with the title, there HAS been a lot of variety. LBP is a PRIME example of a game that offers something boldly different, The Last Guardian will be gold, and games like Portal, Bioshock, and Demon's Souls are terrific games that are varied.
Hell yes 2K, now tell the rest of the gaming industry, what they should do.
I guess some video games these days have some sort of new thing involved with them.
nice to hear :)
I wish there was more of it, but it seems more "original" games aren't given proper development time, so it keeps them from being "great" games.
Probably some hardcore gamers are, but casuals are mainstream. They, and most critics, are happy playing MW2. EA used to do awesome financially when they put the same tired crap every year. Look what happened with ME, DS. ME is nowhere to be seen and Ds is getting watered down for casuals (aka RE5 in space). Activision is doing better than ever, with the infinity iterations of music games and COD. It's all about publicity and brand name. Innovation is not required to be successful in the current market.
