Colorful Games On Consoles Aren't Selling Anymore

Forums - Sales Discussion - Colorful Games On Consoles Aren't Selling Anymore

For the most part its the sad truth we live in today, and the reason why i have a Nintendo system. PS4/X1 are too geared towards the grey/brown games. While i do like some of that, i wouldnt be able to stomach only that.

When it released on the X1 Sunset probably doomed itself. The Xbox croud is the croud that reveals the "bro" characteristics the most because it was a console born of a shooter - Halo.
The game would probably have done much better on the PS4 i believe, probably on the Wii U aswell. It was a bad fit in target audience.

Nintendo new this was coming. That's way they wanted MadWorld on the Wii. Best selling third party game on the console, if I remember correctly.

You're joking.... right?



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

One wonders how much better Sunset Overdrive would sell if they muted the color and "personality" and made it a more straight forward violent shooter game.

Remember that other game that Insomniac was forced to 'mute' because of EA intervention? What was it called? Fuss? Fose? Fuse???

Yea... :(

Sometimes it's not that simple.

Hmmmm, but unlike the point you try to make, Halo is actually colorful. Maybe not as colorful as a De Blob game, but still.



The game has to actually be good too. No, review sites don't get to determine whether a game is good or not, the customers do. If the game is good, the customers buy it, if it isn't, then shit, the customers aren't going to by it. Being colorful isn't a magic pill.



Thanks jlmurph!

I never joke.  And don't call me Shirley.

I think that most gamers aren't interested in paying full price for those type of games. they have a better chance if it launched less than $20



Colorful/cartoony are for kids.... I really want to be an adult so I only buy brown games. It's serious stuff you know.



It's an interesting observation Soundwave (said in Starscream's voice). I think the answer is in this thread. It's pretty clear that the most outspoken consumers of video games, on forums and in media, have actually devolved over the last decades. We've grown up physically -- the average age of a video game player is 31 -- but we've regressed intellectually. In hoping to prove the industry and ourselves "grown up" we've embraced some very immature ideas about what video games should be.

Honestly, those little kids who played NES and Genesis after school were a lot more open-minded and curious than the video game vanguard today.



Colorful games will not go anywhere, they will become more popular. I still have this theory that the gaming market is going to bust in the near future and all these crappy yearly lifeless games will hopefully die.
