|A Love of RPG's|
But I'm not here to write about my love of the RPG genre (although Infinity Blade 2 is really going to rock with the New Ipad's retina display!) Rather I'm here to complain as to how the genre has become stale. The tropes of RPG type games need to be simplified, I like finding and wielding new Skyrim Weapons as much as anyone else and finding in a dungeon chest sterling silver earrings that bestow massive hit points for my Skyrim Nord. But it's just become too much-there's just too many collectibles and I find myself rushing from chest to treasurechest, manically spamming the action key just to see what I can pick up. If I wanted a treasure hunt I'd have bought a Pirate collect 'em up or a scavenger hunter app! I want to fight Dragon's and not worry that I'm missing valuable pickups! It really has become an obsession in RPG's to find what can be picked up, and that I think is detracting from the games as a whole. Inventory management and stat manipulation in Skyrim are all well and fine, but not at the expense of immersivity.
