Metro: Last Light was one of the most pleasant surprises of 2013. Very well done.

Little-known developer 4A Games really proved themselves, and the good news is that Deep Silver CEO Klemens Kundratitz told Joystiq that they will stick with the acclaimed series. Remember that Deep Silver acquired the Metro IP from THQ when the latter company sunk.

Said Kundratitz:

"It's been a positive experience. I'm very glad we acquired that brand. While it launched in a very dry space in the gaming calendar this year, it still got a lot of attention. Our ambition is to absolutely continue with that brand and we will also, in the next phase, look to making it more accessible for a broader gamer audience."

Of course, that "more accessible" part is what makes gamers cringe. A game like Metro: Last Light required a cool head and a steady hand; making it accessible to a "broader audience" usually means more action, more guns and more stupidity in general. But hey, at least the series will move forward, so it has a chance. Let's just hope it retains its singular appeal… Please, please don't wreck it!

Love this game. Sure I've encountered AI bugs where they stay frozen in place, twice now i think, but i absolutely love Metro Last Light. And of course they are going to make it more accessible. Like Skyrim right? Getting real tired of that crap.

Oh man, Metro is a fantastic example of an FPS that thinks outside of the proverbial box. Making it more accessible will turn me away from the franchise, accessible means Call of Duty.

I hate this trend I'm seeing lately. Why make it appeal to people who don't want to play it? If it has a certain feel to the gameplay that is attracting a certain audience the only way they could make it attract to this "broader" audience which is obviously the CoD crowd is for them to ruin the gameplay feel.

FFS are developers and publishers are still this stupid?

When they start calling it a brand, you know all is lost.

You know its not the developers wanting to say this either. Sure they want as many people to play their game as possible because they want people to experience what they created. BUT devs would never sacrifice their innovations, and gameplay mechanics to get a couple more people playing their game and alienating the fans who loved their original creative vision.
