A pair of really good articles from RPS today, particularly the one on violence. Why the heck is everything a realistic ultraviolent manshooter this year? Not to bemoan violence as evil, but it's like eating ice cream for dinner every night; it lacks variety.

Consequently this is why I think Nintendo had the best E3 presentation even if I completely don't get Nintendoland. They started right off the bat with a strategy game, moved on to a platformer, and then a mix of action games and other games. If you went by their respective E3 conferences, Nintendo is apparently the only company that remembers that there's more to video games than realistically shooting people.

It also doesn't hurt to remember that the gaming industry isn't just the people that show up to E3 (or more to the point, the AAA IP's with big productions that grab all the headlines). There are plenty of games out there with no gore whatsoever, trying to say the whole industry is going that way is a very casual and unproved correlation.
