Obsidian Entertainment - Tim Cain Interview @ GameStar.ru
GameStar.ru continues their series of recent interviews, catching up with Tim Cain. I actually expected a different answer to this question:
What biggest failure in RPG genre could you recollect?
Failure could mean so many different things in this context, but I think the biggest failure in the genre is a lack of innovation. Most modern RPG's are simply refinements of systems that have come before them, and in many cases, they are simply repackaged versions with better graphics and new settings but no real innovation. I am hoping that the new wave of Kickstarter projects will breathe new life into the genre.
