David Cage thinks we'll be able to control games with our mind
"There will be no need for controllers any more. Just think about what you want to do on screen and your character will do it."

I like Cage, and I like his games. He's a cool cat. A weird cat, but a cool cat.

Anyways people have complained about how gaming isn't taken quite as seriously as other types of media - but I say perhaps it shouldn't be, since in my opinion gaming in general haven't grown much in the past years in terms of maturity.

I am personally quite disappointed by the modern state of gaming, at how our games seem to be dominated by sensationalist sex and hardcore violence, and at how we seem to rate the maturity of our games based on the number of naked breasts and buckets of blood shown onscreen.

And I agree with what Cage have said too about meaningful content. Maybe it's just me being older, and having become de-sensitised and cynical with age, but it has been a while since a game have affected me. Most games I play nowadays just don't seem to make me think or move me like they used to.

Just think, eh? Hmm... I wonder how many people would think 'Lara Croft wants to get out of those wet clothes', or somesuch... Tongue

Speak of Lara I just have to say it pissed me off when people complained about the scene where Lara was fighting off a rapist, and also when Team Ninja had to put jiggly breasts back into DoA after people complained about their absence in the early demos.

It pisses me off not only because our society don't seem to have the maturity or compacity to look at things in mature rational ways, but also because the developers and publishers don't seem to have the conviction to stand behind their visions. Films and books went through similar issues in the past, but the creative minds behind those have stood by their work and have fought the censors at every step of the way.

And that, is another reason why gaming isn't taken quite as seriously.

    I didn't understand the fuss over Lara and the rapist thing either. Tomb raider has never really been aimed at younger kids anyway, what's the problem in introducing more menacing, possibly mature themes?
