Honestly, this article just sounds like it makes a bombastic claim just to get views. Like the one sole critic who hated Inception.
Inception was a masterpiece. Good day, sir.
I can tell you for a fact it was not written with that outcome in mind.
I knew Sony fanboys may take offense. I hoped they would see it as a call to action, as well as insight into a perspective that was diverse from their own.
Sony has attempted outreach to families in the past, and it has not had the success Nintendo or Microsoft has had. Yet they had success in the PS2 era with families. I ask questions like: "What was done differently?" "Can they bring back that atmosphere?"
There has been feedback to the article that has helped me understand different perspectives as well. Which I see as a really good thing.
I am using it as an opportunity to learn and grow.
I do believe you are doing a dis-service by trying to label an opinion as: "of just one person." The Tea Party has shown there are a lot of people with opinions that do not get mainstream media attention. So numbers are most likely much higher than you claim.
BTW I have never heard of Inception before. What kind of game is it?
The article brings up other questions like - would the industry be better without Sony? I don't think so. Would the industry be better without Nintendo? Again I don't think so. Would the industry be better without Microsoft? Jury is still out.
Its about exploring a question from an angle that is different. Good writers can do that - hence they can come up with all kinds of different character with different motives, etc. Am I saying I am a good writer? *lol* Far from it. I have a long, long, long way to go. I am using this article as an attempt to improve. I appreciate all of the wonderful feedback I have gotten that has opened my eyes to different perspectives.
My one pre-conception that I bring in is this - I believe the key to success is providing for family gamers. Please do not take this to extremes. I know the hardcore gamer needs games too - that is another component. I just believe there are more family gamers than there are hardcore gamers. What evidence do I have? The Wii. Do I leave the door open that I could be wrong? Sure I do.
