It's big business now and I guess Bobby Kotick can enjoy his large wallet. Thing is I have a ps4 and love it. It's everything i'd want in a console. It's fast. It's slick. It doesn't have all this unneeded stuff like the xbone. As a gaming platform it's really what I'd want. I know it's early but where are the games? I think this goes for both platforms too. The xbone doesnt have anything on it that has me excited. And it's not just the lack of them. It's the rehashing and the big budget marketing. I'm here playing killzone, nba 2k and madden. The same games i've played for the last 15 years. Don't STarve was pretty neat and new but it's still an expansion of the whole crafting genre. Still a cool and orignal take though. I find myself playing that more than anything.
Call of Duty, Halo. Even Watchdogs is just another open world GTA clone. I used to manage a babbages back in the day before it became gamestop and I remember all the different games and the amount of games. Sure you had genres like flight simulators and rpgs but there were a lot of just original ideas and games and takes on these genres. It wasn't developers just copying the other..
Why can't these developers with all that they have just make games fun again? It used to be a hobby for me I enjoyed and it's just not the same.
Every game i play it's like i've played this before. I know the argument can be made everything has been done but that is a weak excuse and I don't buy it. It's more these companies are just releasing the same crap over and over because it's money in their pockets. There is a lack of integrity and actual balls with some of these guys to take a chance on something new. Is that how it works the larger the wallet you have the smaller the balls?
