    “The big game of the next five years will be a game where you empathize very strongly with the characters and it’s aimed at women and girls,” said Lucas. “They like empathetic games. That will be a huge hit and as a result that will be the ‘Titanic’ of the game industry, where suddenly you’ve done an actual love story or something and everybody will be like ‘where did that come from?’ Because you’ve got actual relationships instead of shooting people.”


    Lucas proves once again that he doesn't know what the hell he's talking about and that he's quite happy to not only patronise females but is also delighted to pigeon-hole gamers.

    You go George ........ preferably into a Sarlacc Pit.

    Padme: We used to come here for school retreat. We would swim to that island every day. I love the water. We used to lie out on the sand and let the sun dry us and try to guess the names of the birds singing.

    Anakin: I don't like sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere. Not like here. Here everything is soft and smooth.

    Sounds like he's as in touch with the gaming industry as he is film.

    If there's one thing George knows how to do, it's to write a convincing love story. That it's between two siblings is irrelevant and not at all creepy.

    "Because you've got actual relationships instead of shooting people" has to be one of the best quotes ever.

    Do they have to be mutually exclusive?

    I've never been in a relationship with anyone I didn't want to shoot.

    When I saw the IGN article title, I just presumed he was being a bit slow and referring to the Wii U.

    Maybe he should have kept Lucasarts making adventure games then as the company that has emerged from its ashes Telltalegames is winning awards for The Walking Dead and a key reason why is because it makes the player empathise with the characters.

    Next Gen we will have the power to finally redress Dark Forces so that every single enemy you encounter will fire before you do.

    I see the name George Lucas, followed by next big step.

    Somebody stepping in Bantha poodoo is my guess.
