I understand your point completely. I bought Arkham Knight and i'll get the next Metal gear too. those are fun games, but once in a while I think we need exciting new concepts to push the bounderies of gaming further. I personally love the idea of exploring space and new ecosystems and adapting to new environments. for me the objective doesn't have an end point, it's survival in this vast universe and carving a niche for yourself within it. I like the self generating nature of it knowing that i'll always discover something different and I can already imagine a game like this on VR technology. immersion is subjective I guess, you can get that feeling playing any game but some genres seem to follow similar formulas for every game which gets old for me, and sometimes I feel like i'm playing the same thing with a different coat of paint. like Uncharted and Tomb Raider for example
Yeah I have played unchartered and tomb raider and I did like them - love unchartered and thought the new tomb raider was fantastic but I never felt they where the same game but just with a different coat of paint.
I felt each game was good and different in thier own right.
Yeah VR Technology doesn't appeal to me either - same way the kinnect and wii to an extent never did. I know people will love it and look forward to that kinda stuff but gaming to me is lying on the sofa with - Fifa, unchartered, wwe, call of duty, rainbow six, need for speed, batman, mgs etc with tins of coke, crisps, sweets, pizza, snacks and a few friends in for tournaments of some sort. If I want to bowl or play football I will go out and do that - game playing to me is chilling out in my living room and completely switching off from everything but the game.
I do understand people want new technologies etc but I'm just happy for graphics, gameplay etc to keep improving.
