Gaming has now been around for over 30+ years and most of us have grown up while gaming has evolved. From simple 2D sprites, to blocky pixels and up until the gorgeous pixel 3D graphics we have today, we have seen games entertain us in all manner of ways. The three main aspects of gaming has been graphics, game-play and music. When all three of these have been met in epic ways we get epic games. Over the years gaming has gotten quite stale in many ways. We now have games that are mass produced or by copying others. We have other games that promise a lot but fail. Back in the Snes, Megadrive and Playstation era we had many original and epic games that fulfilled all three aspects, and since then we have had a less bringing of epic and original games. Out of this there are always a lot of gems which come around now and again and of course the games that are destined to be epic but just fall short. Or there are games that excel in one area of the main three I mention and then fail in the rest. These days people are more focused on the graphics of games. This in turn means developers prefer to work on this while the game-play side of it falters. Although beautiful and stunning graphics are great, the other two aspects Music and game-play should be considered first. I for one would prefer game-play and music to be worked on more than graphics. Once in a while we do get a game that has every aspect fulfilled. Is the state of gaming still going in the right direction for you, or do you think for epic original games, we can only rely on a small percent of those truly imaginative developers to bring us those epic and amazing games we want? What are your thoughts on the state of gaming now, and what would you change about it if you could? Comments welcome.
