Well you missed about half my sarcasm, but that's okay it doesn't always translate well. Here's the thing, console gaming has degenerated nearly the point of "it's not a game, it's an interactive movie" and in 15 years, I expect to see someone has gotten the brainchild idea to turn it into a choose-your-own adventure machine. Where it gives you a list of options and you're simply along for the ride.

You expect to see this? This has already happened, 20 years ago when 'multimedia' was the buzzword and we were told FMV games - choose your own adventure - were the future. That didn't happen, because they're not very much fun and as a result, they're not very profitable. It wasn't then and it wouldn't be now.

I think the idea of 'cinematic' games is terrible too and single player games like Call of Duty now rather suck in my opinion but there's so much more out there which is selling well - Call of Duty multiplayer, for example. I'm not saying it's good, but it's not an interactive movie and isn't trying to be.

Some gamers have always been dumb and there have always been dumb games for them. Some gamers have always been smart and there have always been smart games for them. This won't change.
