Design Economy: Is Less More in Video Games?

GameDynamo - "In light of the release of one of my most anticipated games in well, ever — thatgamecompany's Journey — I'd like to take time to reflect on what seems to be a little-loved aspect of game design: economy. thatgamecompany is perhaps the best example, Team Ico being the other that springs immediately to mind, of a studio eschewing a design tendency that has become all too prevalent among high-profile video game releases. I'm talking about the scramble for back-of-the-box features, or what we might refer to as BioShock 2 Multiplayer Syndrome." (BioShock 2, GameCube, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection, Industry, Journey, PC, PS2, PS3, Resident Evil 4, thatgamecompany, Xbox 360)

In the case of Vanquish, "more" in terms of multiplayer was needed. With the fast paced style of the game, the potential for a unique multiplayer experienced was there, and would've helped greatly.
