So based on inFamous SS your saying they are not focusing on gameplay on their next game...wow.

Anyway that logic makes no sense, games don't have to reinvent themselves with every sequel to have good gameplay, some other games that have been more of the game gameplay wise include SSB, Mario, Uncharted, Halo, Batman, etc.

Yeah, no. SMG2 and SM3DW is a huge difference. Just like Sunshine and SMG are a lot different.
SSB is a fighting game, it can't change all that much. Arkham Knight seems to be adding a lot of new things like the Batmobile. The last Batman Arkham game got blasted by critics because it didn't do anything new.

So Batman gets a pass just from it adding the batmobile, but inFamous adds new powers and new side activities and changes as much as it can while still being an inFamous game, but it gets no credit...okay.

Infamous 2nd son is still one of the best looking PS4 games, especially during the night with the neon power in use.

Infamous Second Son. Gorgeous graphics, but gameplay wise it was more of the same as the previous entries. Not a masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination (not a bad game either though).

I personally thought inFamous:SS's gameplay was fantastic ^^ It took what worked in the previous entries, and fixed what didn't (such as city traversal, which was completely overhauled for all 4 powers). The thing that let SS down for me was the lack of interesting side content, and how barren the city got once you'd cleared out the D.U.P.

I think they should have skipped one of the powers and used that time to create more custom and randomly generated content. Better yet (though this might just be me), have a single power that expanded/changed as you absorbed others. There really wasn't enough physical content to justify 4 separate power trees.



better push for "jaw dropping gameplay" since its a GAME not a PICTURE or MOVIE.

But whatever making "people" believe a product is good by offering great visuals is way easier than making them believe its good because of the gameplay. And making a good game is much harder than making a good looking one anyways so...


I dunno but for whatever reason this just crossed my mind:
The gameplay vs visuals thing is kinda the same as apes and a fake banana printed on a piece of paper VS a banana smothie. The ape "thinks" the piece of paper is the real deal and much better than the smoothie even tho its not.



infamous ss was average gameplay wise. story too.
i loved infamous 1 though. had so much more to offer funwise.

i hate open world when the world is dull and not open at all.



must-have-list for platforms i don't own yet:

WiiU: Donkey Kong

XBone: Dead Rising 3, Ryse

Call me when they're aiming for jaw dropping gameplay.

And we all know how it ends when they make declarations like that.



Jaw prepped and ready for potential droppage. Awaiting further input.
