Do you think video games will still be popular in 15 years? How do you think they'll change?
They'll definitely still be popular, but considering how popular video games like Halo, Modern Warfare, Call of Duty, etc. are nowadays, I suspect that in 15 years, almost all video games that aren't gory will either become gory or stop being made. :(

I kind of doubt that. I mean, games like Final Fantasy are wildly popular, and although they're violent, they're certainly not gory. And Nintendo consistently makes very popular games, but since their programs usually lack the realism of, say, Playstation, they're not gory at all. Prime example: Kirby's Epic Yarn.

I didn't say that every wildly popular video game is gory right now. Or even that a lot of them are. I just said that this would probably be the case 15 years from now because, even now, a lot of gory video games such as Halo are wildly popular.

And Nintendo consistently makes very popular games, but since their programs usually lack the realism of, say, Playstation, they're not gory at all. Prime example: Kirby's Epic Yarn.

Well, duh. I've been playing non-gory video games ever since I first played Mario at age 4, but since apparently there's going to be an M-rated Sonic game, I have the feeling that probably half (or, at the very least, a quarter) of the video game franchises that aren't gory in 2011 will be in 2026.
