Kimpak: way south: Kimpak: MEH!I guess its a sign of me getting old, but I'm tired of smart phone games. I like a good time-waster as much as anyone but we've moved on now to people anticipating a shiatty cell phone game just like us old schoolers anticipated the next Final Fantasy (or whatever). I weep for our youth, who will squee every time a new angry birds comes out./off my lawn!I think the difference is which demographic is doing the squeeing.In our day we were the hard core pc gamers, console nerds, and authentic geek dom that cheered on RPGs and such. The segment begging for angry birds updates is the one that used to play bejeweled and deer hunter.The tragedy is that games like cod and FF that used to be targeted for geeks are now being tuned to cash in on the non geek market... Who could care less about the history.Dare a modern rpg not be a linear "click the goddamned arrow you moron!" Adventure, it never sells enough to compete with simpler titles.I can't agree more. Even the titles I onced craved are turning to mush. Zelda for instance, the designers go to all the trouble of making interesting puzzles, but then undo it all by inserting some 'Navi' like character that blatantly tells you how to get past the puzzle you're on. I wish I could turn that feature off and struggle through the puzzles on my own brain power.
SuperChuck: I'd be all for a nicely done tactical turn based game sort of like XCOM. My hopes for it actually happening are very low, however.
cretinbob: Because nothing says awesome gaming like 320x240 graphics.....
