A lack of creativity lately

This is something I had to get off my chest, but has anyone else noticed a lack of creativity lately in both videogames and TV shows lately?

I've been really getting annoyed by the amount of first-person shooters flooding various consoles lately these last 2 gen.(XBox's and PS3 I'm looking at you) What happened too all the beat 'em ups, side-scrollers, puzzle games, arcade-style shooters,to fighters, etc,? It seems that now the ony genre's that still exists outside FPS's are RPG's and sports games. Any other genres rarely come anymore. I mean, I can enjoy games like CoD, Metroid Prime, and Timesplitters every now and then, but how many time can we play the exact same genre?

And for television has it worse, it seems that everytime they try to think of an idea, the first thing that pops in everyone's frickin' mind is along the lines of a "sitcom about a teenage girl or boy who reaches stardom with *insert concept here*" or anything starring teenage popstar. Or what about the massive amounts of reality shows about the (sometimes) disgusting lives of celebrities/college kids flooding the Music Television?
Do we really want to watch that?


Sorry to rant, but I just had to let this out.
Do you agree or disagree?

RoomRaiders 2.0

The shows listed here are pathetic, a complete waste of time and needs to be taken off the air immeadiately!

Especially My Super Sweet 16, I mean what and the he** are we supposed to care about some rich girls party?

Please don't mention MTV. That channel hasn't been worth watching since the 80s.

As for the lack of creativity, remember this: it's a business. People will only make games and shows if they know people will buy/watch them, and when everyone starts buying or watching a particular thing (vampires) everyone else will jump in on it, trying to cater to the fickle demands of consumers.

You get what you pay for, quite literally.

If you're tired of generic games and shows, stop paying attention to them and they will go away. I promise.

Cool

Ah, your right about the lack of creativity and originality in regards to entertainment media.
This whole decade has been a debacle in terms of
media and software entertainment.
Reality TV 24/7, MTV Poser Television, Trends of games/comic books/novels
to big screen movies, Tween Television, and shovelware everywhere.

Cliche's fill all mater of mainstream entertainment now,
and its rather horrid to see such things happening.


Rockn.
