exactly. I'm not excited whatsoever about Rage but am hoping that I'm wrong and it will be a great game that I'll want to play once it's released..

If a modern combat game with an awesome feature that redefines how I play modern combat games (in a truly interesting way) is released, I'm probably buying that game.

Its just the following of the same formula day in day out across many different franchises that have nothing to do with each other that creates a pool of "blah" that people start to get sick of.
Couldn't agree more. The last time something came along that was really groundbreaking in combat games was probably bf1942, and the deal sealer for me shortly thereafter, Desert Combat. Out of all the combat games I've played, that has to be my all time fav. I remember being one of the first few to play it, and all the reactions being "wow, holy crap, this is AMAZING"

It seems to me that while graphics have dramatically improved, the experience really hasn't improved all that much in many cases. There are some exceptions of course, but it's like the guy says, the same formula is used over and over.

It's like tv, why make truly groundbreaking (and expensive) content when you can make a "reality" show for a 10th of the cost and make a profit?

it's kinda like movies. Let's all remake old movies b/c we can't come up with new ones
