Gamers' Manifesto

CratesThis is an excellent article about the 20 things that gamers really want from the next generation of games. This guys cusses like a sailor, so be warned (or get Firefox, Greasemonkey, and the clean language script. Just a thought.) Also, if you're not a gamer, many of these you will not understand. Favorites are 1, 2, 3, and what the hey, all of them.

Favorite quote:
"Gradually tougher enemies, more enemies, mind-bending puzzles, it's all good. It's all fair. But DO NOT try to artificially make your game harder with... arbitrary triggers in RPG's. Why isn't the Dark Elf waiting at the Black Temple like he said? Because I haven't talked to every f***ing person in town yet."

Or maybe its this one, where the chances of businesses keeping away from making crappy games based on movies are:
"Excellent. I like to think that some day the businesses of the world will wake up and realize they're part of a greater whole, that the energy devoted to cannabalistic infighting means ultimate doom for all. The leaders of the great religions of the world will realize that all of us, Muslim, Christian, Jew, all want the same for humanity. Women will realize it's the pale, studious type they want instead of the quarterback of the football team, and everywhere we walk, bunnies will dance a path for us. Dance, little guys! Dance!"

Heck, the whole article is an excellent quote. If you are a gamer, check it out. Now.
