IGN: The State of Play in 2012

"Where games are now, and where they need to go.

In 2009, Keza MacDonald's two favourite games of the year were Demon's Souls and The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. At the time, Keza thought you couldn't find two games more opposite in ethos. Demon's Souls is brutal, unforgiving, sadistic and unremittingly dark. Zelda: Spirit Tracks is lovely and bright and playful and non-threatening. Last year, though, it happened again: Keza's two favourite games of the year were Dark Souls and Skyward Sword. Dark Souls nearly gave Keza a mental breakdown; Skyward Sword was the soothing salve that restored Keza's equilibrium."

This article does have some good points as to how gaming has progressed and in a way has become less about games and more about being a "movie".

I love games like Uncharted 3 but at the same time I don't consider them "games" in a way since i enjoy the cut-scenes more than game play most of the time. On the other hand a game like Skyrim I love since it is a "real" game and focuses more on game play than story imo.
