I agree with DFBlocks.
Games today need more story and characters you can actually start to care for. You know, a solid game that you can play and you never want it to end because the experience is so great that you get attached to it in some way.
A good example would be the game Bastion, I didn't want it to end, and I felt quite sad when it did. I would also say the Bioshock series, the story in that is great.
Great game by the way, amazing for only 72 hours of work.
These are the games we need.
People should stop trying to make the next big shooter or platformer and make one of these instead.
A story. Made into a game. Wonderful.
Oh my gosh...that was beautiful. I really love the music and voice acting, the game wouldn't have as much of an emotional impact without it.
A touching story, heart throbbing even.
