Looks like not only Nintendo fans want a “revolution.” Game developers are fed up too. Here’s hoping that their employers will follow Nintendo’s lead and go out on a limb with some new hardware, interface devices, and gameplay. Even Nintendo has used the “repeat” model from time to time, but nothing like the majority of game publishers do. That’s not too say classic styles can’t be enjoyed anymore, just keep pushing creative limits.
Here’s to revolution gaming onward and forward.
From the article:
For the sake of the industry, for the sake of gamers who want to experience something new and cool, for the sake of developers who want to do more than the same-old same-old… we have to get out of this trap. If we don’t, as developers, all we will be doing for the rest of eternity is making nicer road textures and better-lit car models for games with the same basic gameplay as Pole Position.
