8 Game ideas we don’t want to see in 2013

Magic vision


Key offenders: Hitman: Absolution, Far Cry 3
Batman can get away with it because he’s got a really expensive cowl. Dishonored lets you do it by magic. But in Hitman: Absolution and Far Cry 3 you are just a man – albeit a bastard hard one. You might excuse being able to track enemies through walls as a graphical representation of Agent 47’s assassin instinct, but developers are going to have to start cooking up more inventive ways of keeping a bead on opponents. Miracle magic vision is everywhere nowadays, and it takes the edge off the heart-in-mouth tension that used to be par for the course with stealth titles.
