The CEO of EA Games, John Riccitiello, has some strong feelings about videogames.

“We’re boring people to death and making games that are harder and harder to play,” Riccitiello told the Wall Street Journal.

“For the most part, the industry has been rinse-and-repeat,” he continued. “There’s been lots of product that looked like last year’s product, that looked a lot like the year before.”

TheFeed totally agrees. While there are exceptions to the rule, the huge majority of stuff we play is, in fact, boring and complicated. The problem is, when you find a game you really like, what would be needless complications become depth, and the same deal with boredom.

In any case, ironic that the CEO of EA, whose best-selling game (Madden) is released every single year with very little difference from the previous season's game.
