Game worlds and concepts have become stale lately...developers need to explore something new.
I find hope in indie games.
I vote up the "genies with bazookas" thing. Now THAT'S a summon.
what's with western devs all making fantasy games with the same kings, elves and dwarves, create your own universe and mythology please.
What, you don't remember Too Human? Well, nobody else does, so I guess that's not a surprise.
haha i actully enjoyed Too Human, I still want a number 2!
How did I know before clicking on this that it would somehow come back to JRPGS and the such. Author is just butthurt that there hasn't been a good JRPG in while, I can't blame him, but honestly... SKYRIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!! that is all.
Article Author obviously has't played Skyrim.
Skyrim, despite being a great game, is STILL part of that stereotypical Western fantasy world, which the author believes is getting stale. Hell, it's based in the same world as the rest of the Elder Scrolls games, so it can't be THAT different from the others, which contain the orcs and so forth. I agree that the imagination is going out of gaming when it comes to worlds. But I think a lot of that has to do with just how many games there have been. It's hard to make a game in a world that someone else hasn't already made before.
It has ogres, elfs, swords, the world is a normal place (mountains and rivers and stuff), and some of the biggest enemies are dragons. Original, that's for sure... -end sarcasm-
