Blockbusters in Decline: When Hype Replaces Quality

"What in the world has happened to today’s gaming industry? We have millions of dollars focused on the same yearly rehashes, be they of assassins of memory or futuristic marines who can take several body shots but fall with a knife slash. We have studios closing, one after the another, when a title doesn’t ship millions of copies, even if they’re simply A or AA titles rather than the coveted AAA category. We have veterans moving from one studio who’s gone bankrupt to another that’s now facing layoffs." (Culture)
