David Cage doesn’t want you to have fun with Beyond: Two Souls

Action News Playstation 3 Sony

We all play games to have fun right? Well, apparently all of us who want to find enjoyment in games are complete and utter buffoons lacking even a modicum of intelligence. We all would rather challenge our thumbs instead of our minds. At least according to David Cage, that is.

That’s right the pompous head of Quantic Dream is at it again with his outlandish and much reviled nonsensical comments. This time around he is claiming that he knows what you want, even if you don’t know you want it, and that he doesn’t want players to have fun with his new game Beyond: Two Souls.

In a recent interview with EDGE Online, Cage proceeded to grace us with his usual misguided sentiments, most prominent of which is that he’s “not interested in giving [players] ‘fun’.”

Cage went on to state, “My goal is to surprise people, to give them something they want without knowing they want it. I want to create an emotional journey, a unique experience.” He further commented, “I am not interested in giving them ‘fun’, I want to give them meaning; I don’t want to challenge their thumbs, I want to challenge their minds.”

Clearly the man is on one of his ego-trips yet again, but to add a sense of hypocritcal finality, Cage closes the interview with EDGE by saying, “Maybe this is not what most people out there actually want, but this is the goal I set myself with Beyond: to create something different.” 

I think this all pretty much speaks for itself.

Do you play games to have fun? What do you think of David Cage? Let us know in the comments section below.
