One of the most fascinating problems facing big-budget game makers is how to address real-world issues without seeming to exploit them. Indie developers have no trouble setting themselves against the woes of the world, and having something valuable to say. But this level of political engagement has largely eluded the big games companies. Earlier this week, I visited Ubisoft. I was there to play a demo of Far Cry 5, and to interview one of its creators about this subject. You can watch me play here. Long story short, it’s exactly what you’d expect from a Far Cry game. Lots of spaces to explore, enemies to kill, different ways to kill them, side missions, non-player characters and a central story. It’s set in beautiful Montana. It’s big, complicated and fun. I had a good time. During my visit, I also wanted to talk to Ubisoft about the game’s story — the way it borrows from a current political climate in order to present both a story and an … [Read more...] about Far Cry 5’s story looks like a morally dubious mess
Loot boxes have been the subject of tremendous controversy over the last few months, with some very high profile games blundering into this format of monetization in some extremely clumsy, extremely high profile ways. Ignoring some of the basic precepts that developers have hashed out around loot boxes and real money purchases (rewards should be cosmetic and not influence game balance, contents should always feel appropriately valuable, etc.), many of these attempts have backfired in spectacular fashion. But lost in the conversation around triple-A publishers seeking additional revenue through microtransactions or whether or not loot boxes are gambling is the damage these public blunders are doing to the free-to-play model, to games that have relied on loot boxes and executed them gracefully and successfully for years now. As much as recent high-profile stumbles have been monopolizing coverage, there are a huge number of smaller developers that have been doing loot boxes elegantly for … [Read more...] about How do you do ‘loot boxes’ right?

The game industry of 2022 is big, messy and hard to find. Those who define it might be children. They could be solo developers on just enough funding to scrimp by for the next project. They could be retirees, artists or marginalized children in a war-torn country. They may create works of genius that go undiscovered until long after their death. Following up on Polygon’s recent fifth anniversary, we decided to ask a range of experts in the game industry the same question: What will things look like five years from now? While some cited practical predictions, like the rise of virtual reality, most centered around the structures that enable games to be made in the first place. And while many people see things improving, several also sounded warning bells about what the industry may be like and who may be in charge of it. The future isn’t necessarily what you think While many developers imagine a future where the game industry is overrun with new and exciting technology, many … [Read more...] about What will the game industry look like in five years?
