Violence is in human nature and since the law is against it we satisfy our needs by killing things virtually.

True, that's why games like that are popular and dominate E3 usually. I find it a bit ironic that the director of a game witch involves beating the hell of pets for the money and the glory of having the best pokemon (not dissimilar to dog fighting) is saying this.

rabidpancakeburglar2574d ago

Looks like people are actually gonna take that comment seriously :(

xtreampro_REVENGE!2574d ago

It's also part of human nature to stop violence.

Don't be an idiot.

BakedGoods2574d ago

Fitting username for such a comment...oh wait.

Anyone who doesnt think that violence is in our nature needs to look at things like pro sports and most of our entertainment.

American games are about graphics, guts,gore, and a good storyline. Japanese games are about gender confused little boys/girls trying to defeat the *bad guy*, by complaining in whiny little voices in 45 minute cutscenes.
If Japanese developers followed some tips from Kojima, then maybe they would start producing some good games.

Kalowest2574d ago

LMAO, sorry your comment made me laugh.

E-Binnz2574d ago

I'm sorry that I can't take games that have men looking and sounding like women seriously. This is why Metal Gear Solid is the best Japanese made game ever, because you can tell the difference between males and females.

Cpt_kitten2574d ago

american games and good 5% of them maybe

you sir need to open your closed mind and maybe you will see there is more than dude bros acting like terrorists or drug dealers

nopunctuation2574d ago

This man speaks the TRUTH.

mafiahajeri2574d ago

You know thats funny because most people whatch animes and mangas in Japanese to avoid the little whiny girly voices of the english dubbed versions. And please give me names of these so called games from respectable companies.

E-Binnz2574d ago

This is in Japanese, the voices just sound hilarious. Another thing I hate about anime is the ridiculous art style in which everything is frozen in the background and the characters bounce around the screen like a kid diagnosed with ADD without his ritalin.

“Majority of the games look like a same game,” Masuda noted. “There were little of original games. I felt a sense of crisis with above part.”

was he talking about fps' or pokemon? lol i kid i kid

HeavenlySnipes2574d ago

Almost all the pokemon games have the EXACT same plot. Start off in small town with a rival who is the professors niece/nephew pick starter pokemon do battle with rival, leave.

Fight all gym leaders get legendary pokemon of your version. Rinse and repeat.

xtreampro_REVENGE!2574d ago

Pokemon is only one franchise, he said "majority" meaning many games coming from different developers all seem to look the same, he didn't say "one franchise" looks the same.

I'm no Pokemon fan but you people seriously need to learn how to read.

SixZeroFour2574d ago

i guess you missed the part where i wrote "i kid i kid" who needs to learn how to read again?

blackburn102574d ago (Edited 2574d ago )

I agree. What a hypocrite. I bet I could name 5 games without killing in it. Journey, Sly Cooper 4, Pixel Jink Lifelike, Sound Shapes and Lil Deviants. And I am sure I could name 5 more

Boo Who, welcome to the video game industry.

MidnytRain2574d ago

I don't mean to sound like a prick, but I think you misspelled "boohoo".

maniacmayhem2574d ago

Thanks, not every day i write "boohoo".

Anyways there's been killing in games since the beginning of time. With graphics the way they are and only getting better expect violence to get a whole lot more....graphic.

Maybe if nintendo would have shown a new Mario Kart or Starfox it would have been different.

radphil2574d ago

"Boo Who, welcome to the video game industry."

And...that makes it ok?

maniacmayhem2574d ago (Edited 2574d ago )

Yes it does. Why do you ask?


Aaaaaaw, i'll give ya an agree :)

radphil2574d ago

Just saying imo that it's better at times to stray away from the norm.

nopunctuation2574d ago

""Boo Who, welcome to the video game industry."

And...that makes it ok?"

Yeah seriously. I wish I had a cute avatar so i could blindly get agrees.

Tuxedo_Mask2574d ago

He does have a point if you think about it. How many big puzzle games have we seen this gen not counting XBLA/PSS? How many offbeat games like PaRappa The Rapper? Shooters are fine, but not if everything is a shooter.
