I’m so sick of games that would prefer to be movies.
I get where this is coming from but also I think the frontier of blurring the line between mediums is really super exciting and the more cinematic a game gets the more excited I get. As long as it’s still a game. They just need better writing, is all.
What’s happening is an uncanny valley of sorts, but artistically instead of visually. Games FEEL more cinematic but it’s thoroughly underwhelming because they’re still written very underwhelmingly.
I have a headcanon that all the environments in Dragon Age II are recycled because Varric didn’t bother to describe them in much detail. So all of the caves, mansions and ruins looking alike is just Cassandra just imagining them all generic like.
I like this one.“It’s a cave what more do you want they’re all just…caves” “You’re a dwarf though, aren’t caves meant to be your thing?” “No”
