Mag by Slugbox Mag by Slugbox
The only thing you need to make a video game is video and a game. You donít need story, music, characters, logic, or even meaning. These things are fluff; nice fluff we that we expect nowadays, but just fluff! So when people talk about games as art, I tend to think that the games which do the MOST with the LEAST are the best examples. They include fluff, but it is used to reinforce the video and the game; not to expand it into an an awkwardly interactive cinematic experience that is designed to be COMPLETED, not PLAYED.

On a side note, I have a friend who always plays as Mag, and I think it's cute. The Katamari Cousin you play as is a more powerful statement of who you are than anything else.

" You don’t need story, music, characters, logic, or even meaning" I disagree as a future video game designer!!! A video game doesn't have to be complicated, but if you can't get the player involved, they just shoot random stuff or something, it's not interesting anymore and the game isn't so memorable!

Hmm... well that's an interesting philosophy, and I'll agree you can go without those things, but I wouldn't go so far as to call them fluff, in some cases they can be pretty integral to a particular game, to games that the medium would be poorer for not having.

Without some sort of logic to a game though, I bet no one would play games as much as they do. Imagine if you replaced everything in every game with boxes, characters are boxes, a tree is a box, a fireball is a box, and then also replace any kind of background with black and white and just plain smooth featureless terrain. The very act of making a character be just a space ship shooting other space ships gives a game a story. Aside from something like Pong or Tetris, all games have some sort of story or meaning to them.

A song to wipe away my tears,
A song I made in a comment for Sluggy~ ♪
