Hey everyone. I'm still getting my head around this new modDB site. It's looking pretty schmexy.
Here's a gold star to the modDB crew *
Well, anyways. I have to write something here, so i figured i could make a little article about games.
This mate of mine is a brainstormer/game-tester at EA here in norway, and he's telling me that big companies give jackshit about what the idea-tanks come up with. He says their attitude is; "It's the graphics that buy off the masses" and "Hell, that sold well, let's make a copy". We all know this, but it's kinda bad when an employee says that his boss actually litteraly said that.
EA has been going down the drain for a long time now. After spoiling the CnC series with the mediocre "tiberium wars" (it was ok, but the CnC series really deserved a better sequel), and buying out every single good game company and pissing all over them.
But they did atleast buy the right company when they bought Maxis.
Maxis are the creators of great titles like "The sims" and "Sim city#". The mind behind maxis is a brilliant man named Will wright. This guy got it all right, he says that games need more player interactivity and customisation ability, and he also puts creativity and gameplayexpansion (a.k.a coding) over Graphics.
Spore is Wrights latest title, which is coming out this march, and it focuses on giving the player the tools to Completely customize and modify the game environment. You get the opportunity to create every single model and object you see around you. From the flora, to the fauna. From the cities to the space-ships.
There should be more games like this under development.
But instead we get Far crysis IV finish the fight, and Call of halo 34.
The big companies have to get their heads out of their asses sometimes soon, and realize that making games is not about making money, it's a form of expression. It's art. Let it stay artistic. Don't shit all over creativity with your endless sequels and dull gameplay.
Give us something original and creative! Something you can play for ages and never get bored of, because every time you turn on the game, it gives you something new to look at, or invites you to create something.
