Over the last few months, I’ve been catching up with some of the older games of the past generation, replaying HD collections of classics like Ico, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time and most recently, Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus.
Nope they just grew up as Gamers grew up
are you daft? gamers are always young and old.
The gamer demographic reaches more ages now than ever in gaming history, thats why the tone of games got more serious Games like Mortal Kombat that favored realistic characters and violence, over the norm showed that gamers can handle a serious game.
@Raiinstorm81 Your a dumbass. Mortal kombat has been around for over 10 years now. The tone of games has been serious, its been playful, its been everything. If you cant understand that I cant help you "Games like Mortal Kombat that favored realistic characters and violence," You think thats realistic characters and violence? Characters that can shoot ice, and rip the spine in 1 motion? Gamers have been handeling serious games since the new days and fire emblem or zelda was released. A serious game, does not mean its a mature game or visa versa if you want more education let me know
i love the mature themed games.better story telling/connection to characters.but also support the indie scene which is known to produce the light type of experience.
mature themed games are just 1 type. That doesnt mean better, not even close. It depends on the game atelier, is alchemy based, its light hearted. The characters are more memorable and the combat and depth is better than skyrim, its just different
I think that a lot of people take gaming too seriously. Life itself is serious enough, and games are supposed to be an escape from our troubles. I'm not saying every game should be like a Three Stooges episode, but fun and entertainment should take precedence over seriousness. If a game can deliver on both of those points and still convey a serious message I have no problem with it, but I don't think a game can use that as an excuse as to why it isn't fun.
I've been wondering the same thing my self lately. While I enjoy a serious deep thought provoking story as much as the next person, I also enjoy a lighthearted comedic romp as well. It seems like the latter is becoming more and more scarce, at least on the console front anyway.
