[nytimes] This Is War (for a Game Industry’s Soul) - Page 2

post #11 of 16
so eventually they are doomed to fail, either with the next battlefront or bf5?

let's face it, they have no competition whatsoever for a team based military fps with vehicles (that's a problem) so we are stuck with what we get, which has been "lowering the threshold" since BC2.

I will play bf4 but it will always be "what it could have been" to me.

Lost interest right here. What a stupid thing to say. Gaming isn't just growing faster than any other entertainment medium, it's also the single largest entertainment medium.

I stopped reading before I ever even went to the source. All it took for me was seeing the quoted part where he said “My military experience felt like it wasn’t for real,” said Mr. Bach, whose intensity is masked by jokes and a two-day stubble. “Sweden is neutral. What does an enemy want from us? A Volvo factory? Nothing was at stake.”

THAT is grade A stupid. Yes no one in the history of the world who was neutral has ever been attacked right? Certainly would not want people in my military protecting me with that attitude.

PC sales are dropping as users migrate to tablets

While PC component sales continue to flourish.

Most of this article is like saying movies are being threatened with extinction because so many people watch TV shows.

They are trying to create a new type of military shooting game even as the genre confronts technological, narrative and public relations hurdles. If they fail, video games will be that much closer to extinction.

This entire article is written with false conclusions and ridiculous opinion. The future of gaming is Facebook? PC gaming is going the way of the rotary phone? PCs are being replaced by tablets? All false, and have been proven so. Steam has gone from a peak of 4 million users to almost 7 million in just the last 6 months or so. Yeah, PC (and console) gaming is dead? Idiot writer is an idiot.rolleyes.gif

Yea well that's because SquareEnix execs got ahold of some premium Crack to smoke and for some reason expected Sleeping Dogs and Tomb Raider to do GTA 4 and COD numbers. I could have told them they wouldn't sell that well just from playing them. And while both are excellent games, many people who own consoles see them as dedicated COD machines and play little else.
