    It is early days into the next generation since Sony just had their PS4 announcement event. It's all a promise at this point, but it did provide a glimpse into the future. And this glimpse didn't entirely satisfy me. So I started to ponder about the reasons why I felt so disenchanted. Obviously the things Sony promises are great and the games they previewed are top quality. So what gives?

    After some thinking I thought maybe I should come up with a list off things I'd want to see in next generation gaming. Definitely this is better than just taking stabs at what Sony or MS or Nintendo or whoever is doing wrong. It would be fun if you forumites would also tell your ideas, hopes and dreams of what next generation games should be like or even what last generation stuff they should ditch for good.

    Here are mine:
    * Innovative, brave and new concepts - be it stories, game mechanics or visuals
    * Interesting new locales, timeframes, backdrops or backgrounds
    * Real life themes in story driven games - think indie movies and apply to gaming, we are ready for more mature stories and dialogue
    * Equality in game characters - race, creed, colour, sex, etc.
    * More variety in game length and delivery - episodic gaming is great since not every adult has time for GTA V style experiences

    Hardcore pornography video game.

    Or mini games. But from the girls point of view. Sexual.

    I honestly think this would go a loooong way. Think about how refreshing it (initially) was when FPS's went from WWII to the modern warfare we have now.

    Realistically, most games mechanics aren't going to change much next gen but if the settings don't even evolve, E.G more modern warfare/zombies/space (Nothing wrong with space, but needs to be stylized like Mass Effect or something),then I'll be disappointed.

    The extra horse power should lead to improved AI, which should be more important than pure graphical prowess.

    * More cookery action, including realistic giblets.

    * More games where you have to cross a body of water via a makeshift pontoon of turtles (preferably purple).

    * More racism.

    Ahhh.. Some of your answers actually answered also why videogames industry is so crappy at the moment and why it puts out so much crap. Why make interesting games for people who don't care? Thanks for this insight!

    This, with 8GB of RAM to play with they're really going to be able to get their teeth into some high quality slurs.

    Well, if PS4 is anything to go by I'm not expecting much.

    Proper AI used in procedurally generated environments would be something to aim for. To use GTA as a baseline, shooting someone might cause a family member you have never met to go on a rampage/suicide/shut up shop/you name it in response. The people affected by those events then become part of a domino effect that is only stopped by hard (police/player) action or community intervention.

    Realistic consequences (some minor, some unintentionally major) for actions in an open world game would be what I regard as next gen. Just like I hoped for from all the other next gens.

    Probably get more grunty men with perfectly rendered stubble this time. And social media.

    (Yet) more enemies helpfully loitering around explosive barrels. That is ALWAYS going to be next gen.

    I agree, I want more horses in games.

    Rare has been hard at work making a new Snake Rattle N Roll game as a launch title for the new Xbox. It's fucking amazing and still isometric.

    I'd like players to have more positions than upright or kneeling for FPS games.
    Also better collision detection to do away with emersion breaking invisible walls.

    I sat helplessly in traffic tonight. My nose pressed up against the window watching the other lane of traffic whizz by blissfully unawares of my torture.

    I suddenly realised what it must be like to be a console gamer.

    The PC owners are broken down at the side of the road with the drivers head in a configuration file wondering why the car won't start.

    Funny that, cus I sat in traffic tonight looking at the car next to me and realising it had slightly bigger alloy wheels than my car and that its paint job looked a good 6 months newer than mine (it was bright neon blue whereas I was still using old fashioned amber paintwork) and that it almost certainly beat me to 60 miles an hour by a good 1/5th of a second and that all of that reflected badly on my penis size and general station in life and that, because of the terrible paucity of my set-up, people would be, like, TOTALLY judging me and that I therefore needed to upgrade PRONTO, my car was SO autumn 2012 it was painful.

    Actually, I vaguely think I might agree with you.

    I've been playing Metal Gear Solid 2 on the Vita and I'm constantly looking at my character thinking "What the fuck is wrong with you? Why the hell would I want you to cartwheel directly into a claymore you fucking retard." I imagine future gamers will play current games and think much the same thing about the shitty control of characters and their limited range of motion.

    You're just getting old. Not that I'm any different.

    I found a used ZX Spectrum +2 in good condition online today and I'll be buying it. I'm more excited about it than the next console generation.

    You're talking about the next-next-gen, I presume?

    DLNA support is there already, I'd be surprised if they removed it. They'll probably keep Cinavia, though. Now that's a right pain in the arse.

    Yes, they'll have 50GB cartridges.

    Sony's reliability record has been pretty good lately, I wouldn't worry there too much.
