Though there were a lot of solid sequels at E3, the show really felt empty without a bevy of new IPs to look forward to.
One announcement I was really hoping for was David Cage's new game. Unfortunately that did not happen so I'm hopeful he'll announce something at Gamescom this year.
Hell, nintendo has been making nothing but sequels and spin offs for YEARS and yet for some reason people continue calling them "innovative"
Nintendo changes up the gameplay in their franchises enough that they usually don't feel like mere sequels. What's your take on the plethora of sequels on the PS3 or 360?
He is absolutely right. But I do like that you HAD to bring up other consoles when he stated his opinion about Nintendo.
@Jack So what if I brought up the other consoles? This article is about the entire industry, not just Nintendo. You want to ask Cerberus why he chose to single out Nintendo when just about every gaming company is guilty of this. I usually hear people whine about Nintendo milking their franchises, especially here on N4G, but not a peep about other companies doing that also. And by the way Cerberus, that wasn't a rhetorical question. Do you have anything to say about all the sequels on PS3 and 360? It feels like 98 percent of all the releases on those systems are sequels.
its not like they make 3 mario kart games per console, or any other of their franchises.
i want to clear up all this mario kart crap people keep posting. SNES Super MArio Kart was the best and is still the best SMK game for any platform. if they could keep the gameplay mechanics virtually the same and ONLY update the graphics, the game would sell 10's of millions because I know it is a cult favorite and a classic.
I'm not saying nintendo is the only ones doing it (the yearly iterations of COD for example) it's just that nintendo has been doing it the longest. And don't get me wrong, I have always liked Zelda. But come on now, 20 years and they're still going back to the same well. And don't even get me started on Mario games...
Sort of agree, but its more in the terms of their hardware rather then software that people continue to call them innovative i think.
Using Uncharted as the pic...to be honest, we are lucky to at least get some new franchises, like Uncharted, within a generation. I think it's more the generation to generation stuff that keeps getting spit out, which is getting tedious. Some franchises have been going on for too long now. New generation should equal new names, new universes. Even if we are talking about companies that specialize in one genre, they can still bring in a new name and universe.
thats what the gaming industry has come too, especially on consoles.
