Commercial gaming it seems has gone the route of Hollywoood in that a game is more focused these days on it's mass appeal and how visually stimulating it is rather then the gameplay itself. I just wanted to know what everyone thought of as the biggest flaw in commercial games today is? For me I would have to say it is the endless array of clone after clone after clone of games that we have played to death (Final Fantasy anyone?). It seems that as long as the developers know what will make them money they will continue to force feed people the same old thing year after year (I mean, was any Final Fantasy after FF7 really all that different?) There are some exceptions however (most notably, for me however, Okami for PS2) that will do something that is somewhat derivative from the norm....but ultimately we are seeing the same games we have seen for the past 10 years...only with higher res graphics. So what do you guys dislike about the current state of commercial games?

Actually, Final Fantasy XII was a lot different from any of the previous ones.

Seriously, though, I think we've talked this topic to death, and we're all largely in agreement with one another.

mainstream sandwiches suck.
i had this sandwich once, in Victoria, guy made it from vegetables he grew on solar panels in his house made of grass. indie sandwiches are way better.

I think there's room for all kinds of sandwiches.  Indie sandwiches are new and fresh and made with boundless love and all that, which is great, and I do eat that kind of sandwich a lot myself.  But, sometimes you could really go for one of those mainstream sandwiches too, you know?  Just because they're bloody expensive and come with extra cheese doesn't mean that some of them can't taste really good too.  I mean, I happen to like cheese.

Mmm, cheese.

Actually, there is this fucking great sandwich place here in Victoria. The Montreal Meat Cafe, downtown? Don't even get me started. That place almost makes me want to move to Montreal just for the promise of sandwiches. I swear it's some kind of French cultural sabotage.

I also once knew a guy who did that!

But yeah, everyone from Victoria eventually goes to Montreal. Then they come back raving about it as this beautiful city with hanging gardens and art and culture where everyone just lies around and eats grapes all day.

It's kind of led me to assume that Montreal is just these two trees out in a field in the middle of nowhere with a couple of hobos eating beans from a can, and everyone who gets out there is really disappointed, so they make up this awesome story about how they met some crazy art girl at a Wolf Parade show and spent six months hanging out in her studio apartment and making sculptures out of animal fat and discarded porcelain, but then she was killed in a freak train accident so they came back home.
