Has THQ’s Demise Made the Game Industry Healthier?

Warp Zoned writes:

"The final pieces of THQ found new homes this week as 505 Games acquired the Drawn To Life series, Gearbox purchased the Homeworld franchise, and Nordic Games scooped up the rest. While the popular publisher is no more, THQ’s demise may lead to an uptick in the overall health of the game industry." (Crytek, Culture, Dev, Nordic Games, THQ)

It was a big warning that publishers need to be smart with funds

Indeed. It's a sign of things to come unfortunately. THQ had a ton of AAA, highly-rated games, but the sales just weren't there. Devs are going to be even more cautious, which means less innovation and more CoD clones...

I like to THINK THQ lost out on sales for there unfriendly mannerism with DLC and Online Passes...
