“Fun” Games

All other things about this article aside, I just found the following completely asinine:

He then shared quotes from executives at Sony and Microsoft talking about games as a serious artistic medium, and then a quote from a Nintendo executive saying the company only wanted to make “fun” games.

If I didn’t know better, I would have thought the article was a satire piece. Wait, is it? Maybe it’s a ruse. Or maybe not. I mean, he does have a point. Fun games do usually suck.

Granted I’ve gotten to a point where I prefer a game with a smaller learning curve and the ability to get enjoyment out of playing for just a few minutes (so take my opinion for what it’s worth), but as a general rule I play games to have fun. If I’m not having fun playing a game after the first few minutes, it’s likely I won’t continue trying.
