kreese12 Posted June 16, 2009 Share Posted June 16, 2009 (edited) Does anyone else think Alpha Protocol took way too many design ques from Mass Effect? I'm really looking forward to this game irregardless, and I like Obsidian Entertainment as a whole a lot, but it is really distressing to see the increasing lack of creativity in the gaming industry. Gaming used to be like one of the most artistic and creative fields you could get into. Now it seems like most companies just copy the design of the most popular game of that genre of the day. Really when I see Alpha Protocol in action , it looks like it could feasibly just be a re-skinned Mass Effect. The dialog 'new' thing is neat, but all it really is a simple timer on responding to questions. Not exactly the re-invention of the wheel -- or really even that much of a idea. Not saying it's a bad idea -- but besides that, the mechanics of this game look just like Mass Effects, except for maybe minus the team / squad mates. I loved Mass Effect but I'd just like to see game companies be brave enough to be a bit more inventive -- judging from Obsidian's past games, it certainly seems they have the ample creative talent to do just that. So why not use it? Edited June 16, 2009 by kreese12 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
