I love games and all but I see your point. I get annoyed with all these newer games that just lead you around and time you and you have to get a certain number of points. To me a game would just to let us explore somewhere that we dont get to be.

i don't think "points" are a bad thing, they just have to mean something. I dont know if i'll ever finish it but im trying to work on a game where points and achievements are the main narrative pillar. getting points isn't bad unless you don't know why you're getting them and just doing it because you want more. that's what I'm trying to explore.

Funny, I recently underwent a similar frustration. I came to the realization that spending an hour or two every day blasting some stranger from the other side of the country in the face over and over again was a major waste of time.

I'm a game maker myself. I decided one day to wipe my hard drive of all games, including ones that I made. I felt like I couldn't live with myself making that sort of poison to people.

I really want to thank Michael and Auriea for showing me that games can produce meaningful experiences, and more than just brainless entertainment. The Path really restored my faith in the medium and has inspired me to make more interesting works as well.

I wouldnt say the developers are to "scared" its the producers and sponcers who are scared. They dont want to take the first bullet. To much money involved to risk it. This is were places like Xbox Live Arcade are going to change the way developers publish there games. Indie developers now have the access to distribute there games withouts needing to put a massive EA stamp over games.

Also. There are people who like mindless shooting. Just as people still like mindless shooting in film. As do I. I think games that are borderlining art are on a very small shelf in the market. There is a very small market for them and this is why the likes of EA wont buy them.

I actually disagree. Because games that pass for mainstream nowadays are only a marginal medium compared to television, cinema and music. The average artsitic quality of almost anything made in those three majorly succesful media is higher than that of any succesful game. Ergo: more art equals bigger market. (if only because of the greater variety)

Well the games indusrty is now bigger than the music industry. Also if this was the case surley the would be alot of "arthouse" styled games on the shelf at your local gaming shop.

Spine chilling?
Just to clarify, I grew disgusted with games before I discovered you guys. You were responsible for bringing me back to the medium, not for hating it.

I think you may try your luck for online casino games. Just try it on sites that offer you for just for points, after that you may start the paid casino gaming for real money.
