What would you like to see in the future of gaming? How would you want the future console's to work? What ideas for games do you have to start off the next generation of gaming, like how Assassin's Creed, Call of duty, uncharted and many other games started this generation. How would games work without any HUD/Gui's?
Give your ideas and opinions!!
I think that games with a realistic story, well thought out gameplay mechanics, and very lengthy should be the focus on next gen games. Hopefully devs won't focus too much on multiplayer though.
I would also like to see more games like Heavy Rain and Beyond, just without the "point and click" type feeling.
3D without glasses and real-life graphics.
For the next gen of consoles don't expect a huge graphics jump. These 7th gen consoles pretty much drained Microsoft and Sony and plus it's getting harder to put more powerful hardware on consoles. Consoles have such limited size, power supply, etc. Just by looking about the rumored specs of next gen consoles, it's most likely that will look like high grpahics settings for PC. Then within little time PC will trumph over our consoles in graphics. Also PC games are cheaper.
Firstly, please for the love of GOD, bring BACK actual GAMING, requring skill, logic and some actual thought or effort. What i mean by this, is I am SO sick of how nowadays in gaming, people just don't BOTHER doing things themselves. Why should i actually PHYSICALLY work out this complex puzzle on uncharted? DAM I HAVE USE MY BRAIN!! GIVES UP AFTER 5 SECONDS
I can just look up a walkthrough on youtube. WHEY!!! Find 100 treasures? Pfffft!! I'll just let someone else do it first, post a guide and copy them. No effort required.
They NEED MORE RANDOMIZED puzzles in games. One which are DIFFERENT on every game, there is NO SET way of doing it, you have to work it out yourself! Gamers are just becoming lazy, never wanting to use their brain, or 'waste' their time. God forbid, you had to spend a few minutes working out a puzzle in a game or how to defeat a boss.
Developers need to develop new ways to test gamers mentally. Portal 2 is a great example of testing players mental thinking. I loved working out the levels. Who cares if i got stuck? I know the level can be done, i just need to work out HOW. That's the fun of it. That 'eureka' moment in your head, when the lightbulb above you turns on. Unfortunatley players become 'obsessed' by these poxy trophies, and feel they HAVE to to do it even if they don't know how to do it! You followed a guide off Youtube? Please tell me more more how you are a pro gamer ~wonkameme
I don't expect it any time soon. I have patience.
The first console I ever used was my cousin's Atari 2600. Gaming has gone a long way since then.
To each his own. Most gamers these days are casuals who just want to have mindless fun. Companies need casuals, so that they can make a lot of money.
There are still some very difficult games like Dark Souls, but they don't sell a lot, so that should tell you something...
