We are returning to more human game play
In the light of Microsofts launch of Project Natal at E3 this week. I found this video that the guys at analogfolk created around the need for humans to play and experiment more. How the video game console restricted this and forced us to break away from the key elements that make us human. But how games are slowly moving towards a more connected, more active human style.
This video is great but what sums it all up for me. Is their comment about the smile of people's faces when they play a Wii. What about when you play singstar or rockband. A live active group gaming experience like this is more fun. It does bring people together in a more human way.Do you get that sort of smile from a PS3 or Xbox player.... Microsoft are hoping you will with Natal
