Punters don’t take game worlds “very seriously,” says Bleszinski

Ubiquitous Epic mouthpiece Cliff Bleszinski has claimed that gamers don’t take that much notice of game worlds.

“One of the problems with videogamers is that they don’t take the videogame worlds very seriously,” he told Edge.

“It’s just like wink-wink, hey, it’s a videogame – whatever, right?”

And if you really don’t care about the world and plot in Gears of War 2, you can skip everything this time round.

“If you really can’t deal with 30 seconds of dialogue,” Bleszinski added, “if it’s really that agonising for you, you can just hit the back button and Marcus will be like, ‘Enough!’ and you just keep going.”

More through there. Gears of War 2’s out tomorrow.
