This week I've been taking a look at some of the games I'm looking forward to in 2013, I'd like to hear from you guys and girls -- what are some of the games you're all looking forward to this year?
Simple question, so let's maybe expand it a little further. What about new hardware? What about gaming as a whole? Where would you like it to go? Is it heading in the right direction for you? Do you have complaints? Let's have a discussion about gaming in 2013 and what it's going to be! I'd love to hear your thoughts.
In truth, I'm a little concerned about the direction of the PS4. I wonder if its the kind of thing consumers want or need. I wonder if it's going to be the right thing for us in our current technological situation. I worry about the lack of innovation in AAA titles. These are regular worries and, in a sense, they might be illogical, but I just feel that, more than ever, big publishers are afraid of risk. I think that might be a bit of an issue in the long term, and it will most likely reduce my enjoyment of games.
I'm enjoying iOS games and mobile games as a whole, but I hope that bigger, grander experiences won't get lost in the mix. I'm sure they won't, but it's a worry that sits at the back of my mind. I want games to keep pushing forward, in multiple directions at once. I suppose that's what I want from gaming in 2013 -- I want games to push forward, in all directions, not just one.
