Spector says the medium needs different games for different audiences

Wise words.

Warren Spector has revealed that there should be room for intellectual games as well as the normal stuff you see developers make. That’s how the medium can grow and mature, it doesn’t have to be one gaming genre against other.

“I’m not trying to limit game content – in no way am I or would I say all games should do anything, that we should give up genres, that our medium should eclipse some other medium or that we should try to do what any other medium does well,” he wrote on Gi.biz.

“I am suggesting that the medium benefits and our audience grows when some games do thing X, however you define X, and when we introduce new genres to supplement the ones we all know and love. (Hey, I’m into zombies, elemental magic and ray guns as much as the next guy!) We need to expand the range of game content, not limit it just to what we do now.

“No one should have to play ‘intellectual’ games, but that doesn’t mean people who want such games shouldn’t be allowed or able to play them. We deserve and our medium needs different games for different audiences.”
