Most weekends I’ll have a wander around the shops at some point and more often than not that will include popping into GAME. On a recent visit I struggled to find anything that wasn’t linked to war or fighting or set in a dystopian setting in some way. Has gaming become so boring now that outside of sports and racing, games are so generic in how it gets players engaged?18/09/2018 at 11:24 pm #43192Alan BoistonKeymasterPoints: 547Rank: Newbie
It does seem to be a reoccurring theme these days and all a bit repetitive. A games company gets a success, then everyone attempts to copy that formula a safe bet, rather than creating something original. In the end, its all more dark death and destruction, trying to get a few headlines and ultimately, taking sales off of each other.20/09/2018 at 7:18 pm #43407Kevin DooleyKeymasterPoints: 430Rank: Newbie
Battle Royale is a good example of gaming trends.28/09/2018 at 9:40 am #43832Alan BoistonKeymasterPoints: 547Rank: Newbie
Yet it’s nothing new, but it shows how the wider population are controlled by marketing. Literally being told what to like and what not to like if you want to be up on the playground chat with your friends.29/09/2018 at 4:57 pm #43910Ninja-BadgerParticipantPoints: 207Rank: Newbie
I think the same can be said for a lot of media. Books, TV, Movies.
Something has to be wrong in the world for the hero to overcome.
The larger stakes, the greater the obstacle, the bigger the drama, the more engaging it is. At least in theory.07/11/2018 at 3:08 pm #46046Kevin DooleyKeymasterPoints: 430Rank: Newbie
And who doesn’t love being a hero? I have to admit of all the non-racing series I enjoy they usually follow a dark theme 🙂
