Frontier Developments boss David Braben believes BioShock and Halo 3 are not examples of "next-gen" games. He was speaking exclusively to Eurogamer about his new project The Outsider, which he still believes will be one of the first proper examples of fifth generation gaming on the market.
"I loved the 1930s-1950s atmosphere of BioShock: the lovely Art Deco visuals and the audio that worked especially well," Braben told Eurogamer. "Overall the whole game was beautifully executed, but the gameplay itself was not 'next-gen'."
"I found Halo 3 great fun, too, but also a little disappointing - as although there were a few nice touches and improved graphical fidelity, it hadn't really moved on much from Halo 2 in terms of the gameplay."
