That’s right. Only good games. Well, great ones are fine, also. Just don’t ever make any more games that overflow with suckitude. Why can’t developers just get it right? They’ve surely played great, brilliant games. So why can’t they see what it takes to make one? Over the last month, I’ve played so many underwhelming or just plain bad titles that it sometimes makes me wonder if the suckitude factor is higher than normal.
Of course, then I also play Max Payne 2 and Tron 2.0 and think that life will once more be worth living. I check out demos for games like Vega$: Make It Big and see the reviews for Call of Duty and know that the world will once again be right.
But it’s when I play those gems of games, like Ghost Master and Neighbors From Hell (which is too short but otherwise a blast) and last year’s positively brilliant Geneforge and know that some developers just really understand what it’s like to make a fun game.
Developers, chant this mantra: Good games only. Good games only. Good games only.
