A Gamers News article was written in response to the state of the gaming world and what gamers are facing. The article is interesting all the way around and contains interviews with game designers, game publishers and gamers themselves. One of the interviewees that actually had something interesting to say about the state of the gaming industry was Michael Fassbender, the lead designer on the Mass Effect series. His experience is quite interesting and even includes some comments about the controversy about games like Grand Theft Auto being racist.
In this interview he talks about how games should be marketed and about how the future of consoles will probably be better than their current counterparts. When you read his opinion on this stuff, it makes you wonder how anyone ever came up with that line of reasoning. There is a good deal of PC gamer news going around lately about how the gaming world is changing and how things will probably go from what they are currently doing.
Some of the comments made in this Gamers News Article were rather telling about the state of the industry and how it’s affecting everyone involved. One of them stated something along the lines of “PC gamers have always been cry babies” and that would most likely be a direct reflection on the quality of games that are being produced. There is a good deal of PC gaming news that talks about the quality of games that are coming out and how bad the sales have been for most titles. The fact is that most people are getting mad over this mess and would probably quit the gaming industry if this continues. The industry is actually worth billions of dollars.
Then there’s this comment from Michael Fassbender, who is the president of Iridium satellite. I can understand where he’s coming from because when I talked to him he told me that he doesn’t believe that the quality of games that we play would change dramatically. Personally I think that the gaming business would change dramatically if they did change anything at all. I would still be playing games on my PC and I don’t really see any changes there. Why would I change then?
Personally I don’t see why anyone would change their entire lifestyle to go from playing console to PC, or from PC to handheld. I would continue to enjoy the type of gaming experience that I have had for the past 15 years or so. I would probably look at this as another one of those opportunities that I have in life, but then again, if I would change anything in this world it would be the name of my son.
If you were to ask me whether or not I would change my mind about gaming, I would say absolutely not. I love what I do. The industry has taken a bad turn and it’s important that people realize that before they choose to do anything drastic. There are a lot of things that people can do that would change their life, but changing your mind about something is something that I can’t do. In fact I would probably change my mind about racing car games tomorrow morning if I found out that they were all just glorified screen shots of car spinning around in some game. That being said, I am sure there are some individuals out there that would actually do it if they could!
