David Cage: “The Industry Doesn’t Want To Grow Up” (Us: “Shut Up, We’re Playing With Lego”)

David Cage: “The Industry Doesn’t Want To Grow Up” (Us: “Shut Up, We’re Playing With Lego”)

David Cage, judging you, yesterday.

We expected David Cage to come out of gamescom with a number of quotes under his belt, all about how much he adores ultraviolent, militaristic first-person shooters and has a burning desire to sate the gaming needs of every adolescent male in the world.

No, wait, no we didn’t. We expected him to say something like he said to Gamasutra:

“I think we should have more courage in our industry and take more risks, because I think this is what the industry needs now. I mean, how many first person shooters can you make? How many monsters/aliens/zombies can you kill in games? There’s a moment where we need to grow up. We need to grow up

“I often think that the industry suffers of the Peter Pan syndrome. It’s the fact that we don’t want to grow up, so we stay kids. But there is a moment where you need to grow up as an industry. And you cannot keep up with the Peter Pan syndrome. You need to grow. And I think this is the right time”

It’s nice to know we’re not the only ones having pause for thought when we’ve killed our 4,000th bad guy of that particular sitting. Maybe soon enough we can get games with the story of Spec Ops: The Line and the actual game part that isn’t ridiculous, over-the-top cover-based shooting with popping heads all over the place.

Subtlety? Maybe one day. But probably not from David Cage, let’s be honest.
