|Subject: Games must pursue new frontiers, says Suda 51 28th July 2013, 9:44 am|| |
No More Heroes designer Goichi Suda says games can become "culture and art" if designers do more than shooters and racers.
If games are to be thought of in the realm of culture and art, developers must do more than make mainstream titles like shooters and racers. That's according to Grasshopper Manufacture CEO Goichi Suda, aka Suda 51, who discussed in a new Edge interview why creating unique games is so important to the developer.
"So I think video games are becoming an important, and a dominant, form of entertainment worldwide. And in that landscape, I truly feel that our shooters, racers, and our mainstream games have been covered, checked off and done well," he said.
I definitely agree with this. Shooters and racers are all fine but it would be nice to have more variety. I'm also among those who believe games can be art and would challenge anyone who think otherwise to play through the Metal Gear Solid series. I can't think of a better example of games that can be considered art than those. Great story, cast of characters, voice acting, gameplay and replayability. It just has everything that a game, and a movie, could ever need.
So, do you agree or disagree with Suda 51? Why and why not? What kind of games would you like to see made outside of mainstream games and are there any example of games you can think of that you believe can be considered art? Go ahead and share them!

Now reviewing video games and movies because why not?
