Too Much Rehash in Video Games

 

 

Cordova, TN; December 31, in the year of our Lord 2015--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is acknowledging the reality that there is too much rehash in video games. Too many companies in the video game industry are like a school of fish or a herd of buffalo. They see something works and they make their own clone. Then when something sells they make a sequel. What is even worse is the companies that re-release the same games on systems that come later. Why should we pay a second time for a Super NES game on the Wii U? Why not just play it on a Super Nintendo? Concepts like backwards compatibility are dying out slowly to the greed of too many companies.

At least a remastered video game is updated in a variety of areas. But at its core it is still a form of rehash. Albeit one gamers will not lash out against as violently. Too many video game companies make minor updates to their sequels. The progress has slowed down to a crawl. Watching it here from Family Friendly Gaming is like watching a snail move along. Too often these games are too predictable. Anyone out there coming up with unique and interesting ideas to write about? Or are we stuck with formulas to what some suit finds successful? Family Friendly Gaming has provided hundreds of unique ideas companies could work with. Future Glimpses could be made into a video game. If there was only some company willing to do something different.

Mojang did something different with Minecraft. They were sold for 2.5 billion dollars. Minecraft created an entirely new genre for the video game industry. That is growth. That is what gamers want - something unique. So many game developers like to brag they are brilliant. Time to prove it. Time to show up. Time to back up the words. Come up with something new and unique. Do we need LittleBigPlanet 4? Do we need Forza Motorsport 6? Do we need Mario Party 11? Another comfortable experience that baby steps us into mild improvements. Or do we want something unique, interesting, diverse, and new? There are plenty of stories in the Holy Bible that could be made into video games. Seek inspiration from the Holy Bible.

It is no wonder so many families, and so many gamers are getting into retro gaming. They missed fun, cool, and original ideas from back in the day. Why play the rehash when they can play the original? It is also no wonder some game developers are making retro styled video games. Things like a first person perspective on the Atari 2600, or new games on the Atari Jaguar. Why can’t we have new video games on the Sega Genesis? Or Sega Dreamcast? Why not some cool new Nintendo 64 video games? I am trying to expand the industry, and expand the minds of those stuck in the same old rehash. Think outside the box. I am amazed at how Christian game developers are constantly thinking outside the box. I wish the industry would be more supportive of their innovative ideas.


God bless,
