Video Game Sequels - How Much is Too Much?
I'm curious about something: the video game industry has been criticized for simply cranking out sequel after sequel with nothing new or creative. Yet some argue that these long running franchises have dedicated fans who want to continue to play within these specific, established franchises. Others say companies brand a game with a big name so they can make a profit without needing to be creative or innovative (I'm looking at you CoD). So are sequels a bad thing? Are they making our gaming experience narrow and repetitive? Or does getting to immerse yourself again and again in a world that is familiar remain fun and interesting?
