Re: Why you game

I was referring more to the top games of the market, Pedro. Yes there are great indie titles coming out right now, but indie titles don't seem to influence the AAA market's demands.

For ex- Dark Souls- the next Dark Souls is being 'streamlined for greater audience appeal'- ie- turned into a game the diehard fans won't recognize and the general public won't notice because they weren't interested in the first place.

Why does Dead Space 3 need cover based shooting?

I know I keep comparing this to Hollywood, but I think there's precedents. Marketability, brand recognition, profit being driven by doing the same things, not taking chances on art or wild design...

Here's a question- what great games of the last generation wouldn't get a shot if they were made today?
