I watched a video, from the game theory on why creative/innovative games aren’t financially feasible, and how even when done with franchises we love and/or are critically acclaimed they struggle to get big sales.
The point the video was trying to make was that even though we say we’re tired of playing the same games, we still go for the ‘tried and tested’ instead of the new thing
I’ve been giving it some thought and i realised as much as i call for innovation i don’t support it as much as i could; i was late to buy the wii, don’t see it as a priority to buy the wii u, never bought an indie game… ever (practically played none of the ones given to me by ps plus), almost always go for sequels first over new IPs and generally stick to gaming genres i know i like instead going for one i’m not to sure of.
Does that mean i don’t like innovation? i don’t think so, but it does mean i could try harder to support creative developers and games.
I want to know if anyone else prays to the skies for more interesting AAA games but SOMETIMES, sometimes shies away from them when they make it to their front door?
Now, i’m not trying to rub people the wrong way or looking for yes or no answers, I would like it people really thought about the question than answered with informed opinions and well explained points of view. Thank you.
