    Colbert The Game Genie grants you three wishes...

    No, not the device that allowed you to cheat, I'm talking about rubbing a cartridge, monitor, or handheld device and an honest to goodness genie pops out and gives you three wishes that can only affect the gaming industry. What three things would you wish for to change the gaming industry? Whether it be production, the relationship with publishers, more exclusive IPs, the fanbase, or just resurrecting/killing a franchise, what would your three wishes entail?

    Wish one: A new Chrono Game.
    Wish two: A way to mas produce units cheaper so gaming could be a bit more adorable.
    Wish Three: Lots of money for me. I know it's not a gaming wish but I want billions!

    Can I wish for myself to become a big deal in the gaming industry for being a critic of games, or is that off the table?

    Technically yes, because the point of the question is to see how you want to change the industry but on second thought, it doesn't necessarily go against the point of this thread if you spin it the right way.

    Smurf it, I'm wishing for Sega to reenter with a brand new console that can compete with Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft, for Nintendo to become better at competing with the main two consoles everyone love, and for the PC Master Race to STFU.

    1- Nintendo create a system that can compete w/ Sony & Microsoft
    2- More full 3rd party games on Nintendo systems (not this "you get most of the game, but Sony & Microsoft get all this other cool bonus stuff)
    3- Resurrection of the Chrono franchise

    The Pro Action Replay left the Game Genie as a back up paper weight (in case your SNES mouse wasn't in arms reach).




    Selfish, I would wish for;

    A FF release for the PS4 that is as engaging as X. (Maybe VII remaster will fill this spot)
    A copy of the next Elder Scrolls game (plus all DLC and every pre-order/limited incentive)
    Revival of the Dragon Warrior and "Shining" games (it counts as one wish)


    Industry;
    Kill off pre-order retailer incentives (bs, how many copies of the freaking game do I have to buy just to get all the good crap that should be in there in the first freaking place?!)
    Kill off pre-orders, period.
    Flawless virtual reality (probably going to have to go full "Tron" for that one)

    Here's my 3:

    1. For new consoles and games to be cheaper
    2. For gaming technology to slow down so it doesn't implode (which i believe it will)
    3. For Square Enix to do another Final Fantasy 7 game sequel (theres 497 years not covered people!)

    I would wish for all game engines to just magically start working perfectly so that no dev would have to spend resources struggling with that again.

    I would wish for voice synthesizing to be perfected so that even an indie dev could give full voiceovers to games with dozens of hours of dialogue, and that even supported players giving custom names to their characters.

    I would wish for a magical auto-compiler/optimizer that any dev could run their game through to improve their code efficiency to the mothersmurfing extreme, allowing for amazing performance even on poor hardware. For some reason, this thing only works when you insert game code, not other types of code. Nobody knows why.

    I wish to be made the head of Sony. The rest will take care of itself.

    I'd be sad if expansions stopped existing. Those are technically DLC these days.

    DLC is necessary because...

    Game prices were on the rise for awhile, but then hit an industry "cap" at $50-$70 (console). The games released today cost more to develop than ever and let's not forget inflation (console games have been at that $50-$70 mark for, what seems like, 20 years). Developers needed to find ways to recoup development, turn a profit, without selling a retail copy for $100+. DLC makes sense, you can get the game on the cheap and if you like it, purchase the DLC as it is released (sweet). What if you don't like the game? Had you shelled out $120, you'd be twice as pissed. With DLC, you get to "invest" in those you like, and "cut your losses" with those you don't. DLC also allows the developer to release the game earlier and begin recouping those costs, to put more time and money into developing it further (DLC). Without DLC, you'd either end up with a half assed version, or wait an extra year+ for a game that will cost you twice as much.


    Don't get me started on freaking Skylanders, my son has every game/figure up to Swap Force, and most of Trap Team (he's "outgrown" it).

    i just hate when companies release a half assed game at full price (vanilla destiny ) ( it was playable but much worse than told ) and a 20 pound DLC which is 3 missions 1/2 strikes and 1 raid! idk... ah well i think people use dlc as an excuse not to finish their games fully.
