I've been thinking allot about the upcoming consoles. Not the ones right after these current ones, but the ones after that, and the ones after that.
Graphics can get better, that's a given. But what happens when shit's exactly like real life? When I walked into a Gamestop at the beginning of this generations life cycle, I stopped and played a round of Fight Night 3. That game was the best thing I had ever seen in my entire fucking life. It was totally realistic, you really actually felt like you were inside
the game. A few years later I played Motorstorm on an HDTV for the first time and relived all those feelings of amazement and astonishment.
Like I said, games can get prettier and prettier but pretty soon we will hit a wall. People will get bored of the same old thing and Nintendo or whoever will have to reinvent the d-pad. This reminds me of when the Wii was first announced. I tossed and turned in my sleep in anticipation waiting for Nintendo to release those first, precious photos of the Wiimote and nunchuk.
And when those screens were finally released I was so fascinated by it, I couldn't get it out of my head. The thought of how awesome Wii sports would be, swinging my beloved Master Sword with a flick of my wrist. But sadly, when I finally slid Twilight Princess into that little black slot, I wanted to slit my fucking wrists. I was so dissapointed by what my
"Ocarina of Time 2" was I didn't even finish the game.
But less Wii fappery and back to the issue at hand. What will future video games be.
I really cannot wait to see where the video game industry will go. Will games go back to their roots? Classic, fun, and rather simplistic? Or maybe something that I cannot even begin to comprehend. I don't have a clue, I just hope that it's fun.
