It's not the gameplay or the story that I'm talking about. It's about moving away from this gritty realism that I feel like is all we've gotten with the FPS genre over the past decade.
I just finished Blood Dragon and I found the writing hilarious (especially the notes for the weapons, loading screen tips, etc. The game makes fun of the FPS genre and even itself (FC3).
It was quite refreshing to play a game that didn't take itself too seriously - or in this case, not serious at all.
Anyone else play this? Anyone else wish we got games that weren't so serious all the dang time? Games have always been fun, but I feel like they lost a bit of this fun when they tried to be as hardcore realistic as possible.
Not sure what the sales were of Blood Dragon, but I hope it was successful so we'll see more of these types of not-so-serious games.
