Well, the idea is fine. But the gaming blogs have been taken over with "news" that are articles about ks announcements. I have no interest in games that I cannot play. I don't want to read about them until I can actually but and download them.
I would be happer if they just reviewed the games when they actually come out.
Well, I think mêlée combat can be fun, if it is all about careful timing and button combinations. But few games have that. However, I always play as a mage, and magic is always point-and-click when it's real-time.
@SAJ14SAJ How about Final Fantasy games? Not that I have ever played any.
I like mages too. But I am terrible at real time. I am the cannon fodder in PVP, so I don't do it. I am terrible at twitch games. I hated that Mass Effect when more twitch based. Not to mention they ruined the story, but I didn't but the 3rd one because it was basically an action game.
The enemies were not there all along. Instead, you had to enter an area and then they spawned SURROUNDING you so you could never play cautiously and tactically, but were constantly being ambushed in situations no half way intelligent player would tolerate.
I didn't give up easily. I think it was this battle where you crossed some stone bridges, and then a huge number of INVISIBLE mages that you could not pre-buff against would root your characters and then blast them to death that made me quit the game.
Casual non computer-based gaming is rapidly moving to them. People who don't want to fuss with the complexity of computer games have tablets and phones and Angry Birds to satisfy their itch. There is less of a low end for consoles to complete in.
Younger people--younger even than you--seem to use their phones and tablets as their primary or even only personal computing device.
So that is where they play their games.
They don't see any need for a console, where they are tied to the living room or whatever.
