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.

People are talking about how creative the game is, not the characters. The characters are just cute/funny little assets, but the game itself is why everyone is so hyped =/

LBP.... not creative in the art department...?

Sackboy is infinitely more creative than Kratos or any of the Gears of War characters. Kratos is a rip from mythology, and the Gears crew are all stereotypical steroid-like soldiers.

STFU, faekboy. LBP will be yet another AAAA esclusive for the PS3 this year. It will usher in the era of the PS3- it's finally here: Jump In. Fart_Storm

The era of the PS3 is an era where the PS3 is stuck in 3rd place? I mean, best case scenario, its going to be second. Wouldn't the PS3 era have the PS3 in first?

Does 150 million ring a bell? That's what Sony says they are going to sell of PS3s. And they have been in business a long time.

Thats what Sony said. Sony has said lots of un-truths this generation.

When they really do sell 150 million, I will believe them. Until then, I don't even think they believe them.

They also said that the PS3 would have 4D graphics, and that didn't happen...

If we go b your logic, MS said they are gonna sell more than the PS3 this gen, so, if Sony sells 150 millions PS3s, MS will sell even more 360. See how it works?

LBP looks good but i agree it has been overhyped to hell, its a side scrolling platformer at heart and nintendo pretty much owns then genre of games. it will have to do alot to surpass super paper mario IMO, if the execution os wrong it could get boring pretty fast as well.

Sony also knew how to make great portable music players (Walkman) until this little white box came out and captured the minds of the world (iPod).

Not saying that the PS3 can't beat the Wii, but its not like this would be the first time Sony had a product that failed to live up to the past successes of the company.

Cute comes character. Character comes appeal.

Let's say if TF2 didn't have it's art design, people would probably turn a blind eye to it and just label it generic MP shooter #xxx.

I find it hilarious how people call games kiddy yet go "OMG sackboy so cute!!!! I wanna hug him!!" He's a ragdoll made from a potato sack...AWW CUTE..or not.

Plus I love when people go "OMG dis game so artistic!" I'm all for artistic games like Okami and such because they're great games. But I hate stuff that is basically an animation where you press buttons a bit and are supposed to be wowed by it's beauty.
