Re: Will the eighth generation consoles be defined by the RPG genre?
I certainly hope so. Last gen every game was a shooter... For a person that isn't a big shooter guy, it was a little rough. I like a little COD multi here and there, and Destiny has my attention at the moment, but give me an rpg, or racing game every day of the week.
That said, I don't want every game to he shoehorned into a genre, just because that's the it genre of the moment. Checking off boxes is not the way games should be made. Not every game needs to have guns, or a multiplayer mode, just like every game doesn't need to be a huge open world.
I know I said my favourite genre us rpg and racing, and I don't like shooters, but I'd trade every game for a COD zombies map pack. Something about zombies speaks to my soul like no other game can. Being an elite player certainly likely helps with that too. I'm good at most games, far better than average, but I'd never say I'm elite in any of them, except zombies.
