Epic Games Design Director Cliff Bleszinski thinks that video games are becoming much more linear, and as a result of this, they are becoming easier. Bleszinski also said that a lot of modern-day games feel like a series of scripted quick-time events. Do you agree with his opinion?
“It feels like in this current console generation that we’ve taken a lot of steps to grow the audience and what I think’s happened is that the games have become more linear and easier, so it feels like a lot of quick-time-events.”
“The more I play games like that the more I turned off to them and just want to get back to systems interacting with systems, and get back to a game that, you know, when was the last time a game really challenged you and asked something of you, right? There’s a reason why Demon Souls and Dark Souls have taken off lately. It’s because they really require you actually try.”
