There's a perpetual irony within the gaming community. We're constantly decrying the sequel-heavy dearth of originality in today's safe-bet-driven industry, yet time and time again the imaginative, artistic and flair-filled games that Gamesradar claim Gamesradar want absolutely tank while gamers all play more Call of Duty. So Gamesradar think it's time to ask what Gamesradar really want. Do People want to take chances on new experiences, or are People secretly much happier just taking more of what people know gamers like?
Great article, Okami is simply the most beautiful game I have played, in my top 5 games of all time but it sold awful
dont people read at all1? it has a metacritic score of 93 so why didnt more people buy it1?
Psychonauts is another extremeley overlooked game which I played only recently, very funny, unique and clever, Jet Set Radio also (and the sequel), which I had for the DC and loved
Guys!! if your any kind of action adventure fan, get Okami!
I buy games I like the look of. The only genre I'm intimidated by is flight combat... I can't play those.
A small percentage of gamers..maybe.
But the majority of people who play games? No.
All you have to look at is what games sell to see that innovation and creativity mean jack s*it. From Mario to Halo to God of War, and everything in between, developers will stick with what works and publishers will publish what makes them the most money. While taking a chance (Brutal Legends, Okami, etc) every so often.
