Innovation Has Never Been the Cornerstone of the Video Game Industry

As expected, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is a huge seller and is breaking all kinds of sales records. It's been parodied on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and is being blamed for the loss of the Louisville Cardinals this past weekend. The game has its fans and it has its critics, and in typical internet fashion the critics of something really popular are being very, very vocal about the game and the fans of it. The number one criticism aims at the "lack of innovation" in the game and other first-person shooters out there today. One columnist went so far as to claim that MW3 is what is "wrong with the game business" and whatnot, speaking of how he came from an "era that watched innovation reign supreme" where he mentions titles such as Pong and Super Mario 64.

The story is too old to be commented.
