But, despite how good the blog is, I did take issue with one part of the article: Realism.
I was gonna Comment on the article, but there is an error with Disqus. I couldn't login and post a comment, so I'm gonna copypasta my comment here instead:
[b] "A Good read, but I take issue on the realism concept. A Video Game is a work of art and fiction. The Second we start trying to or continue to pursue realism into a work of fiction, it stops being artistic, and becomes boring.
I'm going into Indie Game design, and I can tell you right now: there will be zero realism in any game I make. I have always seen Video Games as a work of art and fantasy, because that is what they are. Realism should only be in the graphics, visuals, and the movement on the characters in the game...nothing more.
If anyone wants more realism than that, then go outside and enjoy life. When Life starts to become boring, come back inside and escape into the fantasy world of Video Games." [/b]
Now If you'll excuse me, I'm gonna get back to a pimping mission I've got running in GTA:LCS - The Johns aren't treating my ladies right, and I gotta problem with that.
