Newer than the PS2

Very new Video Game tropes

Name Space:
Page Type:
Basically, the idea is that most people (at least those who care much for gaming) consider the Playstation (the first one) and the Nintendo 64 to be the last "classic" consoles. This means that, potentially, everything from the release of the Playstation 2 to the present day is the newest there is.

The question is, is this worth making? And if so, what tropes should be in here?

    Um, too be frank, the list is probably going to be too small to warrant a page. DLC and other things related to Internet access being standard on consoles is probably all there is. I can't think of any actual gameplay or narrative tropes the newer ones have pioneered.

    Well, Press X To Not Die, AKA the quick time event, didn't come around as we know it until Resident Evil 4 came out... but other than that, I got nothing. I don't think this is tropable.

    Dragons Lair is nothing but QTEs.

    We should at least try looking for tropes that are genuinely that new before shooting the whole index down, but I don't see us coming up with much.

    I think this is already covered by The Seventh Generation Of Console Video Games.

    ^^^ I was doing that in Shenmue on the Dreamcast. Theres almost certainly PS 1 examples too.
