Leonardo Ferreira's Blog

 

Well, hello there. I am a game design student, living in a quiet, sunlit country below the Equator. I plan to, someday, work as a game designer, but for now, I'm just an avid reader of anything game-design related, and sometimes I try my hand a making simple games (and now I'm trying my best to finish one that is not that simple).

I like game narrative discussions, 2D, innovation and crazy games.

I dislike fanboyish discussions, trendy games, social games, pretentious games, the concept of "intellectual property", and lack of sense of humor in general.

I tend to gravitate to game where the player 's character is not a human figure, but a pink blob, a spaceship, or a non-descript amount of units games with abstract characters often obey their own rules, while games with people often try to emulate our boring reality.

Every cultural product, no matter the origin, has cultural validity. This kind of cheap elitism is actually what caused games to not be reconized as an art and a cultural force throught the years.

I appreciate the intention of the article, since I also see there are postivie sides in nostalgia beyond being just a selling point, but I have to disagree with some of the propositions. Games like Shovel Knight, Super Meat Boy or Cave Story simply could not exist in the NES ...
