Neocrisis: Innovation Wars

Neocrisis: So recently I stumbled across a episode of Sessler's Soapbox in which Adam Sessler discusses Japan's so called lack of innovation. Now normally I fully agree with Sessler and I think he is one of the greater minds in gaming journalism but this time I have to object to his various statements.

I think it is too small minded to think that either the West or the East is better and innovating more then the other. One thing people have to remember is that a large portion of games from Japan never even make it stateside and I'm sure a good portion of those games have a certain degree of innovation.

However people need to remember that innovation isn't the only thing that matters. If a dev does nothing but focus on how to make a title innovative it will more often then not come out lack luster because they didn't give other aspects of the game the attention they needed to.

There's a reason why Those games fail over there.

It's not like the Western gaming world is really innovating anything either it's just shooter after shooter, sequel after sequel.

We've seen innovation, but innovation doesn't always sail regardless of Western or Eastern Development, Company's just don't want that, they want profit, and this is when innovation went the hell out the window

nobody want's too innovate you have innovative games (Valkyria Chronicles) being passed over for "Shooter XYZ"

same goes for JRPG's nobody really wants to break the mold and when they do it's either a huge screw up (FFXII) or something so fresh to a stale genre(Persona 3 and 4), there nothing to innovative about JRPG's.........

what's innovative about shooters, Bioshock okay that's cool but what else, It's the same game every with a different tool to controller.

Evidently gamers don't want innovation cause games would have sold alot better

Here's hoping Heavy Rain sells well, and that LBP pushes more units, shame people passed on Okami twice...............*sighs*
