We've seen a lot of games focusing on serious themes as technology progressed and developers, especially the AAA side of the industry, have had ways and tools necessary to create their own gaming visions

As a consequence we had an ever decreasing number of light-hearted titles that in the previous generations (prior PS3/360) were quite prominent - not to mention the fall of the arcade genre -. Add to this the conspicuous development costs that have several game studios take a comprehensible play-it-safe approach by releasing a product that may not innovate but that will most likely yield revenues.

Do you think this trend will be maintained as technology evolves and as we progress into the future? Should we expect it to even grow bigger and have games blur the lines with movie productions?

I thought I knew what immersion was....and then I played VR. Seriously, nothing compares to the immersion of a good VR game. On PSVR, these are some VR titles that have blown me away in terms of making me feel as though I am actually inside of the game: Skyrim VR, Paranormal Activity, Firewall: Zero Hour, Wipeout, Dirt Rally, RE7, Astro Bot, Borderlands 2, Here They Lie, Transpose, The Exorcist: Legion VR, The Persistence.....and the list goes on and on. VR immersion is insane, period.

In terms of non-VR games, here are a few: Silent Hill (the first one on PS1), all of the Fallout games, Bioshock, Far Cry 2, Layers of Fear, Spec Ops: The Line, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West...and the list on and on. If you can't tell, immersion is a big thing with me, which is why I love VR so much, but I love it in regular flatscreen games, too. Always have.

I'm gonna pose you a somewhat weird question: Do you think pick-up-and-play games can ever be immersive? Let's say, platformers. Could they ever suck you in, or you feel somewhat detached from that world?

By immersive I mean games that really capture you into their world and make it feel like you're in it.

Ok to be clear the PS4 won... period.

The siwtch and Xbox are now fighting it out basically... athere all there is to it... but Sony won... easily.

I'd say it's not a fair comparison, each console's sales should be measure on a year-to-year basis, as Nintendo Switch only came out 2 years ago.

I don't remember "stories" in the games I play, but the memory of the fun I had remains.
Story makes sense in those types of games where what you do is directly tied to the storytelling and is part of the experience, but it's often not a big deal if you don't understand it at all.

Less open world zombie games for sure. Less deep, dark narratives and more arcade kind of fun.

Phil Spencer made It clear that they're not competing with Sony and Nintendo, they have no reason to; they're mostly concerned with other tech giants such as Google and Apple, even tho this latter never posed any threats to Microsoft as they have always had a different approach to their respective markets.

You need to get out of that mentality of single platform exclusive content. We are in 2019 and there are different ways and devices to access services from. It's only logical that Microsoft brings content across their ecosystem.

It really is a great time to be a Pc gamer. So my games that once used to be console-only titles are now heading to Pc.
