Nostalgia is in full force. deny all day long, but nostalgia has en effect, remembering back the golden days will always bring back fond memories, nostalgia will always be a factor no matter what anyone says, it's human nature. games have progressed to a point where we have huge cinematic experiences, not some blob on the screen that can't talk, and very simplistic combat ina flat 2 d world.. Like it or nor graphics goes a lng way to immersing the player in the game, if they weren;t important we would still be playing pong. games are as good today as they ever were. Games like The Witcher, Dragon Age are a lot more evolved then games like Dragon Quest.

Nostalgia does play a part & graphics are good for some games like sports & shooters. I don't like playing movies & having long cinematic cut scenes. I agree games are fantastic today, but turn based RPGs are one genre that isn't as good as it used to be. I may be in the minority but I believe Final Fantasy VII is where turnbased RPGs went bad. It was like playing a movie. It was very linear & was all about graphics over gameplay.

Dragon Age is a good game but i think the combat is awful. Not having full control over my entire party is a big problem.

TheShowRocks, you mentioned games in the past were more action adventure oriented but all you named were games from today that are action combat oriented. Can you name a few good newer console Turn Based RPGs? I would love to play one. The only ones I find nowadays that are good are on the DS & a couple on the PSP.

I understand the concept behind what you are trying to bring to light, I just think there is much more for you to talk about outside of individual criticism. You should start off by talking about your job and your career which, in turn would automatically open peoples eyes. To attack specific criticism will get you nowhere and to make assumptions of an entire career field based on your own work ethic is a bit "out there". I appreciate what you are trying to do and I look forward to your next article, I would suggest a different angle though. Good Luck!
I just want to point out that I said that I have some authority, not absolute. I'm not expecting to talk for everyone in the industry, but from my perception of my work and other programmers (in my company, in other companies in my area, and especially game programmers), people work really, really hard.

I know of workers who bring their work home even though they're not required to. I also know ones that goof off at work, but come up with amazing features and fixes. It's quite important to allow your brain's subconscious to look at a problem in a different way that you actively think of.

I'll be touching on how hard game programmers work in my next article, which should be coming out later this week.

Keep tuned into No Graphics Needed.
