Why is it that every game with a cutetsy image is considered creative? Honestly LBP looks like a good game and all, but sackboy and friends aren't really that creative, yet people think that they are a million times more creative, than say, kratos or marcus phoenix and company.
People are acting like any game that doesn't have a guy and some guns is suddenly better as a result. Look at flower for instance. Whats its main claim to fame? That it doesn't have any people? That doesn't make it creative. I takes just as much thought to make a game about space marines as it does to make one about petals blowing in the wind.
The real creative genius' in my opinion are people who don't just make cutetsy games, but make serious games with a twist. Take left 4 dead and Mirror's Edge for example. Take a lot more creativity IMO.
Btw LBP looks awesome, I just don't like that people are praising it and its art direction, like they are something to write home about.
