More people than me who are tired of the murder-simulations lately..? :)

Good review. The entire authentic vs. accessible is nicely described, and avoids all kinds of strange tropes about gamer demographics and preferences for explanations.

Not sure I'm completely sold on baseball, though.. I tried the demo, and hit the batter in the head at least ten times. And the commentators were just making fun of me the whole time. Then suddenly everyone ran around the field for no reason, and the commentators started to laugh again. Stupid game. :p

Seriously! This was such a refreshing break from shooters. I feel like every game I play lately I'm some hulking, oversized super soldier. Not that I don't love that, of course, but going from Bulletstorm to Killzone to Homefront to Crysis ... uhg. I couldn't even make a dent in most of them and some of them I ended up not even getting past the main menu on (Homefront).

A steady diet of games within any one genre is good for no one, but it does seem that more and more people lately are finding themselves tiring of the FPS. That's not good for the genre but it could be good for the industry.


"Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought." - John F. Kennedy on reality

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto
