State of the Industry - 2012 A Year in Review

Well, 2012 is almost gone, and Game-Modo have to say it’s been one of the most interesting years in the video game industry that they can remember. Although, it started out with a ton of pessimism and fear for investors and gamers alike. 2012 kicked off with people talking about the fact that there weren’t very many games coming out in the year, and had this idea that the bubble was about to burst as it did in the 1980’s. The general feeling was that people were burnt out on the same stuff getting developed every year and that the industry was heading towards a crash. While the industry did fall in some aspects, it found a way to redefine itself rather than fall back into obscurity. (Culture, Industry, Next-Gen, Tech)
