Upcoming games are "boring to death" said EA CEO - Page 4

Most multiplayer games are kinda boring now too. I only play CS:S online because it's pretty competitive and some WC3 once in a while.
I don't even play CS:S anymore cause it gets too boring... I don't play C&C3 anymore either... I can't even stand to play EverQuest anymore either.. It just seems that nothing new and fresh is coming out. Cool, Crysis is coming out and has awesome graphics, but seriously, what is it other than a FPS? What is Oblivion other than an RPG? Besides being a mix of several different things, these games aren't bringing any new elements. You're going to be using the same abilities, just stronger versions later in the game...

You know what game has never let me down? Super Mario World or Mario 64. They are the type of games that bring you back to give one more try to a particular level...

Other than that, and Smackdown Vs RAW 2006 or 2007, I have yet to find a game where I feel like I've accomplished something. I just want something different. Something that takes actual strategy. Not something linear. Why didn't I like Halo? Because it felt like the game pushed me to aim for certain spots.

However, that being said, I am not looking for a game like The Sims to come out where we're practicing our everyday lives. Rollercoaster Tycoon was a big deal because it let you be creative.

I dunno, I just feel that these games coming up, even though they have awesome graphics and add or mix a few elements together, won't be anything to pee yourself over. I remember hearing so much about FarCry, so I built this computer to play it, and when I started playing it it turned out to be nothing more than eye-candy and the same mind-numbingly boring concept of an FPS.

Like you mentioned in your excellent post, ItsBobtista, some of us are tired of the stuff coming out and fall back on the older games. I still find myself going back to Power Stone, Bionic Commando, WrestleMania 2000, Tekken Tag Tournament, Battle Garagga, and so on all over the map.

I rarely find games engaging anymore. Games aren't hard enough, games aren't long enough and a lot of games just aren't as engrossing as the older ones are. This generation is still progressing but i haven't played one game that i haven't been able to put down and that is very very sad.

Pfft. You guys are too picky. I like games, games are fun, there's lots of fun games

I still like HL2 and CSS, BF2 & 2142, CoD2, Far Cry, FEAR, and R6:Vegas is fun, Gears of War, Halo 2's multiplayer can be pretty fun with friends, and other games. I bet Crysis will rock, and lots of people are fans of the Halo series (it's OK IMO), and Halo 3's coming out.

People just like to whine...

To be honest I am the same as NintendoSensei.

From Final Fantasy X and including X I haven't been able to get in to them easily. FF1-9 were great games where I spent hours without realising.

But that may not be the games, that may be me changing.

First person shooters suck enough as it is. The only thing they're good for is displaying the best graphics today's technology has to offer.
...Don't be insulting my favorite game type...

I have an excellent example of the floundering thuroughness and creativity in games.
After seeing the Transformers movie I couldnt help myself. I had to go get the Wii game.
While giant robots running around is fun and i enjoy how each robot feels different, there are a number of quirks in the gameplay that just make me foam at the mouth sometimes. This seems to me the cancer that is affecting games these days. The developers have so much on thier plate when it comes time to make the game, that they miss so many details that completely ruin your immersion in gameplay, ie. the time effect and non-put-downability factor.
In the one instance of the transformers game: You can run around destroying everything in sight...but....you can tear apart buildings, but they will never fall. And after making everything run overable/throughable, some genius decides to make several patches of trees that are not. So...i can run through a gas station, massive propane tanks, and bowl over a tank/bus, but...i cant go through half of the trees in the game??? GAAGHAGADHAH! It is things like this that take you right out of a game and want to say "**** this". Play through a few games and look for things like this. just be a pessimist and you'll find them. A few quotes you might find yourself saying are "what moron made this physics engine!?" or "Did they even test this!?". Enough rant. Time to go play some KOTOR 2. damn fine game.

I think it was a bit funny when it was EA bringing up this fact and they also make some pretty lame games that also lack originality. We do need longer games that last longer than 1 day. I beat The Darkness in one day. Problably why MMORPGS like WOW are so successful, they keep going and there is alot to do... it keeps the game interesting.
