That Bloke In The Beanie from Plus XP Writes: "Our love of games has changed radically over the past century, with the changes in technology allowing us to experience our favourite pastimes in a whole new way. This is especially true of ‘video games’ . While the changes over the last 40 or so years have been immense, there are still fundamental parts of games that have stayed with us, but much has been lost. To hark waaay back to my rant on graphics over storyline piece a few months back, where I complained about pretty graphics taking over from storyline and, in some places gameplay. Now, don’t misunderstand me, there are still a lot of great games out there with complex, intriguing storylines that inspire us and have us coming back for more. But the problem remains that there are even more that are satisfied to be simple action fests that leave little to the imagination or the enjoyment of the player. Its one thing to have a decent selection of games that you can blow off some steam with, but saturating the market with the same kind of product can stunt the growth of the industry."
