David Cage Cannot Stand The ‘Childishness’ Of The Games Industry

David Cage Cannot Stand The ‘Childishness’ Of The Games Industry

The Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls mastermind believes it’s time the industry lose its “Peter Pan” syndrome, and start taking meaningful risks.

“I think we should have more courage in our industry and take more risks, because I think this is what the industry needs now,” Cage said in an interview with Gamasutra. “I mean, how many first person shooters can you make? How many monsters/aliens/zombies can you kill in games? There’s a moment where we need to grow up. We need to grow up.

I often think that the industry suffers of the Peter Pan syndrome. It’s the fact that we don’t want to grow up, so we stay kids. But there is a moment where you need to grow up as an industry. And you cannot keep up with the Peter Pan syndrome. You need to grow. And I think this is the right time.”

Cage’s latest game, Beyond: Two Souls, will see a release on PS3, however a release date is yet to be confirmed.

    totally missing the point dude!
    developers and publishers are not obsessed with FPS because they like them, there obsessed with them because they sell well!
    if it was heavy rain setting sales records than every single game ever released would be would be about serial killers!
    this guy needs to wake up and realize just because hes not in it to get rich, does not mean no one else is!
