nothing new is working
not familar with ATVI sports games other than TH skateboarding game the new nascar console game is awesome but I don't know if it was a sequel or not any info on this anyone?
Yeah its depressing ATVI has none of those titles, but the horses it does have are still the strongest in the sector. I know Bungie is creating something massive , they rarely disappoint.
Can you name any recent/new game that's worth mentioning that isn't a sequel?I'm sure there's a few, none come to mind offhand. New/fresh games seem to fail more than suceed.And while a new franchise may be great, it's not necessary for success.
Red dead Redemptionbioshockeverything kinectBulletstormInfamousDead SpaceBorderlandsAlan WakeAre all "new-ish" games that are new ips that were all very successful games and will inspire squeals and trilogies. Note that ATVI made NONE of these games. The point being that there are still good companies making good new games that are making lots of money, ATVI just inst one of them...
Absolutely agree with you. Just like any media, it's easiest and least risky to build on an established franchise - movie sequels, television spin-offs, etc.
Diablo, Starcraft & Warcraft is about it for Blizzard.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blizzard_EntertainmentEverything seems to be an expansion or continuation of the same old. Years are catching up and no matter how you dress it, an old horse is old.
it might be an old horse but it still can plow and since you are into metaphors try this "why fix whats not broken" world of warcraft was and still is a huge success and last time i checked so was call of duty.
