What video game genre deserves more attention?
While FPS and MMORPGs rule the world, a number of other video game genres have become neglected over the years. Which one most needs and deserves more attention in the future?
I miss the classic adventure games like Monkey Island, Space Quest, etc. These games relied more on thinking than twitch gameplay mechanics. These titles are few and far between these days.
Its definitely Strategy Games. Once the darling of the masses with titles like World of Warcraft, Age of Empires, Total War the genre is totally neglected now. There are hardly any new releases that deserve a mention. Pity.
The classic RPG is really decaying, actually all the genres need attention, They're focusing in the MMORPG too much because of the monthly income sadly, but all the other genres are going down, only a few can be called "gaming jewels" in this days, I miss titles like Zelda: OoT or Majora's Mask, GoldenEye64, GrandTurismo, GTA, SIMS, and so many more, those games with bad graphics maybe but with great stories and amazing quality-time in-game experience. I really miss those times, really good game titles right now in my opinion, most of the companies are playing the safe cards, instead of being creative and original, they're copying other titles or remaking them in HD. I'm just waiting the "BOOM" in the gaming industry soon.
I feel like point and click adventure games could use a bigger spotlight in the professional marketplace. Telltale Games' 'The Walking Dead' is a prime example of what this genre can dish out. It shows that they have the potential to possess great immersion and stories.
I'd like to see platformers but whether they deserve to return or not is all down to the person who asks it. Strategy games haven't been dominant for a while, and when they were it wasn't long term unless we're referring to PC gaming. I'd like to cull the herd, so to speak, and bring in the real RPGs where you actually roleplay, none of this dumbed down Skyrim or WoW rubbish. Classic electronic tabletop, pen and paper, candlelit RPGs need to make a comeback to separate the men from the boys. Fantasy games are fine, just don't defile the RPG genre by calling them that.
Adventure games are a must though because one example has hit the nail on the head for me: Heavy Rain. The quicktime events aren't too distracting, around 70% of your choices from start to finish matter (I've yet to see a game that does that) and the story and the way it's told is the best I've seen in a video game, and I don't ever say that lightly.
