BeefJack says: Videogames are boring, overstated and all too similar, as they are. The incestuous nature of their culture leads to games utterly frothing with clichés when compared to one another. There is no substance to Saints Row, no meaning behind Mario. Games need to develop and create characters that people can attach to for reasons higher than feeling badass. This, I feel, is why videogames aren't taken seriously.
