Peter Molyneux reckons gaming is almost the dominant medium in entertainment.
Molyneux says a lot of things...
Wasn't he going to stop saying things? Wasn't that a thing he said, not talking to the press anymore?
Thats what happens when you stop making games and become a professional troll. Cliffy B learned his lesson, lets hope Kojima doesnt suffer the same fate.
Isn't Cliffy making a arena shooter?
" when you stop making games" ...not sure either of them ever stopped making games.
Molyneux once said Banana pudding was his favourite. I think he was right for once.
lolz. Not even close. Until we have awards on network TV that are bigger then the Oscars, until we have many genres that actually have many entry's, until many, many, many factors. Gaming is still young and we just are not their yet. Gaming has a longs way to go before its even near that.
At this point he could declare that the sky is blue and I'd still feel the need to fact-check it.
* They still let this guy play developer ?
Not until games are more accessible to the general public than films
I thought this guy ran away?
Almost counts in horse shoes.
...and he's meaningless within the industry.
At this point, I have to agree.
I'm sick of Molyneux lies. This is just another one.
Molyneux is just too creative and his imagination got the better of him to what was ever technically possible. He was one of those kids who said he had a 60" TV at home but really had a 21" lol... a bit of a fantasist I reckon. Still, creative! Lol
Not his games
Do you pronounce his name : Mah-Lin-Hugh?
Yeah I've always said it like that, it's kind of obvious.
Maybe once or generation grows up. The older population grew up without video games so less familiar with them
sad to say, i hope im wrong, but the "younger generation" grow up on sports games and call of duty where as i (we) didnt grow up playing fps, first time i ever played one was goldeneye, but it was far from the be all and end all when it cam to gaming
I dont think dude bro will define our generation. While I enjoy my casual NHL or FIFA games every so often I dont really play fps anymore. Gaming is much more than CoD and Madden. I guess my point being that our generation views gaming as a integral part of entertainment whereas older generations where more interested in other forms such as movies, radio, and television. Interactivity is revolutionizing the entertainment industry which is what i think Molyneux was getting at.
Hate to say it but the people who grew up on video games when they first came to the home, are either approaching or in their 40's. I started on the 2600, and I'll be 40 in December, and a lot of them have kids and lives now. Gaming hasn't been a kids past time since the PS1 released, when Sony made it OK for adults to play games....perceptually speaking of course.
I grew up on 5200. My friends had 2600, collecovision, and intellivision. I too will be 40... in December. Btw, my mom always kicked my ass in River Raid,lol. No such thing as too old.
lol. My mom used to kick my butt at Pac-Man. She never got into gaming beyond that though. Me and her mostly played board games when I was younger.
As much as I love Gaming it isn't "that" big compared to some other forms of entertainment. It's huge don't get me wrong and for Per Consumer to Cash Spent it may be one of them with the highest profit ratios (well total money spent by consumers more than pure profit) but it still isn't as popular as other, older forms of entertainment. Movies for example may not be out profiting gaming as much as they were but when you take into account the difference in a price per ticket to the price of games/consoles they are still reaching a much wider audience. Good old real world sports probably still has bigger numbers as well in the long run (especially combined and not limited to just professional teams). I play games almost daily still but it's still just one of many forms of entertainment I enjoy and there are billions out there that don't Game whatsoever. I think it is fast becoming one of the forms of entertainment we spend the most on though (both with out time and money). It is also likely the one medium that probably costs the most to keep pushing its industry forward. Smaller games are great but we still want the bigger and best they can come up with and it isn't likely to change.
didn't he said he won't ever speak again to the gaming industry ?, see another lie from him :P
I'd say it's already the top entertainment medium. Simply for the fact that it already is making more money than TV, movies, music and pretty much everything else out there. And with its continuous growth I see it becoming even bigger.
Peter Molyneux is quite the enigma.
Go away, Peter. Just please go away.
