my first post
I think that Mirror's Edge, Little Big Planet, and even Grand Theft Auto 4 helped define 2008. While GTA pretty much kept the same formula from the previous games and added great new features, Mirror's Edge helped to completely redefine how first-person action games should be developed. I feel that if other companies actually analyze how ME interpreted first-person action, the FPS shooter genre could become a lot more innovative and realistic in the upcoming months/years. With Little Big Planet, the way SCEE implemented the user-generated content idea into their game was unique and has the potential to inspire gamers to become future game designers.
In my opinion, of course.
