I'm starting to think the gaming industry needs a swift kick in the backside. So many developers and publishers are concentrating on what the masses want and through it all they seem to be missing the most important thing - making a good game. Now I still like to believe that video games are a unique art form, but seeing what games have become today (a majority focusing on nothing more than mindless action, while others are simply a rehash of the same bloody game) I think it's safe to say that some of them are far from art. They're just your average hastily spewed out pile of virtual crap, made to appeal to the casual gamer. Yes, it's all about the fucking money. However, once in a while, despite all the downsides of the industry, a few decent games managed to pop up every now and again. Be they indie games, full retail releases or otherwise, they turn out good because somebody made and effort and creative people were involved with the project. And that's what's important to us. That's why we stick around. I guess even as we sail this pessimistic boat, the waves of the massive ocean of electronic entertainment may still bring us to new and mysterious shores. There are always game designers with good ideas out there. If publishers allow them to express even an ounce of their creativity, well then, that should be enough... for now.
Good games may still come.
