Not Far From the Tree

Was watching some football with my dad today.  The Jonah Hill ad for Modern Warfare 3 came on TV.  The ad, of course, concludes with "rated M for mature."  To which my dad replied, "should be rated I for immature."

Now, I can count on one hand the number of times I've talked gaming with my father.  But, seeing as he has spent a career in, and teaching about, the advertising industry, it was neat to see that our views on gaming apparently run in the family. =P

Is the FPS era over yet? (see: platformers > fighting games > RPGs)

You tell quite a story old timer.

But, unfortunately, I do not believe that the FPS era will end anytime soon. Shooting things is in our American blood cells. Hunting is still around, and when did we start doing that? Since our existence is the answer. So I see FPS's as a form of virtual hunting. I feel like it will become less of a phenomenon as the years go by, but it will never not be a factor in the industry.
