What happened to the fun? Everything this generation has to be so damn serious. I think it's partially because that is what gamers demand. We demand that video games be considered art and therefore demand that games be "serious" so that they fit into that rigid/asinine idea of what "art" is. Another fact about gamers is that a great deal of them are in their early teens, a prime age where they reject everything that is "kiddie" and only want to associate with what they consider adult.
What are your thoughts on the subject? Is the industry fine the way it is or do you want more variety for all ages? Do you miss the "kiddie" games? Do you think that games have become too serious? Has "maturity" limited the originality and gameplay of modern video games?
