Video games are moving away from being creative and are becoming copy and paste FPS.

As I have been playing games nearly my whole life I grew up with classics like "Super Mario World" "Zelda OoT" and "Beyond Good and Evil" and comparing these games with ones that are popular now like Call of Duty (any of the games from the series) which just seem to change the weapons or the abilities you control while the main goal is the same.

I accept this debate. I guess first round is for acceptance, but since my opponent posted his argument I will post mine. My position will be that the video game industry is not only releasing cheap FPS's, but just that they are just the only ones heavily advertised.

...Alright, I will go ahead and post my position. I feel as if the game industry has not changed at all, besides getting bigger and more pressured upon. Although it can seem like the only games being released are just FPS's and copies, that's only because thats what third party developers and big companies like Electronic Arts and Activision are releasing and heavily "hyping up" and advertising. Although they are a heavy amount of big games, there are even more releases that can be considered innovative produced by other developers and indie ones, and even occasionally the big companies themselves. I would expand upon these topics, but my time has been cut short... I apologize (again) and hope you are able to respond next round.

Here is my side of this. We gamers are asking for games to be copy-and-past. When a new fresh game comes out (Titanfall) we shoot it down. "They copied COD and Halo meow meow meow". But when the new COD comes out, we eat it up like a homeless man at an all-you-can-eat buffet. So when we shoot down new fresh ideas like Titanfall and then buy millions of copies of the new COD, developers get the message that all we want are copy-and-paste games.

I'd like to say that it's mostly American game producers that are making generic FPS games, while the Japanese market is based heavily on innovation.

I'm only 17 and I can tell that games are moving in the wrong direction, they say they throw millions of dollars at a game and yet it still turns out to be junk. When I was younger, though you may disagreed, I was lucky enough to play games like San Andreas and God of War. Back when they were unique and fun in their own ways, but all of them have sold out, even Bungie who made the beloved Halo franchise are just settling for a cut-rate piece of crap in Destiny that they are gonna' milk from with DLC and the like. But I will say that at least games aren't as bad as Hollywood, yet.
