  1. Not exactly a “better,” one, I want a LEGO game that embraces what LEGO is about: creativity.

    Simple adventure games we can get anywhere, a LEGO world with LEGO creativity we only get from Minecraft, but it only does a fraction of what a legit LEGO game could do.

  2. “It’s a very good time to be a gamer, ladies and gentlemen.”

    True, but not the best time. These days we are getting more sequels than IPs, and while we don’t need a new IP to come out every week, there just aren’t of them. This is why everyone’s hyped about Watch Dogs. For some games, sequels are practically necessary (see Half-Life, God of War, Uncharted). However, for many games, sequels aren’t necessary (see CoD, NFS). And then some series continue on forever (once again, see CoD, NFS, Final Fantasy), which is just plain unnecessary. We don’t need 15 games in one franchise when nothing actually new is being implemented. In summary, to make this an even greater time to be a gamer, developers need to end series after a few games (if they’re even worthy of making sequels to) and make more fresh IPs.

    • Agreed, I don’t even buy FPS games unless their IPs. There are a few sequels I do purchase, like Madden NFL and Pokemon.

  3. All I know is that when Valve makes an appearance in one of these conventions, and they show a video, it’ll be dead silent, then the video will roll, and the MILLISECOND that something shows that it’s Half Life related, the room will explode with cheering. I guarantee that will happen, and I cannot wait…

  4. I agree on the Telltale Games problem. Developers seem VERY disconnected from gamers today. Now I get having to keep secrets, but when you announced something, and you don’t live up to your promise, you owe it to your supporters to explain yourself.
