It saddens me to read a dozen Naruto blog posts everyday. Granted, 90% of these games never see release due to the games' "creators" being a little inexperienced and just wanting to create something.
Anime is really just a dead end. There's no sort of creativity you can implement into these games. You have to follow the anime/manga else your players will abandon you and run to the next of the 20+ Naruto games already on BYOND.
What if BYOND were to limit the amount of games created for each anime? If there were 20+ chess games on BYOND, would we allow this as a community? Or would we look at them and say "Okay, these five are the better ones, the rest we can do without."
I'm really just kinda thinking with my keyboard here, but I don't really think we need a million games designed around the same concept.
I'm just wondering if anyone else is having the same thought here. I want to know what Tom's thoughts on the subject is. I want to know what everyone's thoughts on the subject is.
I've seen over the past couple of months at least 2-3 dozen blog posts about original game developments. Where are these games?
