Its a very dark age for gaming because we are being fed the same experiences again and again with the sequels and safe choices from the developers. There's almost nothing truly innovative, like I want to see something I could never have thought up in a game.

You guys are so short-sighted, he's talking about the medium games in the scope of the last 3 centuries and sees that it is the accumulation of all media/art plus science of the last 3 centuries combined, gaming is the newest art and goes beyond most conventional media like music/paintings/books/papers/m ovies/tv.
