The Bobby Blackwolf Show

717 - 07/12/20 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Sony Invests In Epic, Should Games Cater To Everyone?

  • I contributed a video to the Virtual Southern-Fried Gaming Expo about how we used to play pinball at home before people could bring actual pinball tables home.
  • Dragon Con has finally been cancelled 60 days out of the convention. There will be a virtual event in its place.
  • Sony has made a strategic financial investment in Epic Games, further cementing their relationship with the Unreal Engine technology for both games and movies.
  • A chat on our Discord about The Last Of Us Part II spurned a discussion on if games need to cater to everyone, and why the terms "play" and "game" might be holding back the medium.
  • Then we take calls about video game pinball turning real, and the possibility of travelling in a year or two.

Games and other forms of media is not meant to cater to everyone as there are different genres, themes, age ratings, and player preference. For example: a Mario game can be rated E for everyone can be viewed as just for kids by some people, or people don't play platformers and prefer shooters and/or sports games only.

I used to play video games as an escape, now i play them for entertainment and discussion with friends.

Last of Us 2 is rated M by ESRB for Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Nudity, Sexual Content, Strong Language, Use of Drugs. If you're not into that, don't buy it. You don't have to purchase/play every AAA game that comes out.
