Katamari creator thinks the future for videogames is dark

0

Keita Takahashi may be famous for making bright, happy games such as Katamari Damacy and Nobi Nobi Boy, but the quirky developer has a bleak and depressing view on the future of the games industry. In fact, he doesn't think he sees much of a future at all, and certainly not one with him in it. 

"I'm actually not thinking about a future in games. It's not that I'm not interested in them, but I want to try lots of different things," he explains. "At E3 I saw people putting on speeches but I thought the future seemed a bit dark."

The Japanese designer isn't impressed by 3D or motion control, either: The 3D games didn't spark my interest. I think motion control's a bit old now, I don't think those games are the future. It all seemed a bit dull."

Harsh words from Takahashi, but do you agree? Is a future of 3D gaming and waggle input as dull and dreary as he believes, or is there enough fun and magic left in this industry to keep things bright?
