The eighth generation of home consoles were met with rabid anticipation after nearly seven years (longer if you don’t count the Wii U) of old hardware. Despite the hype and record-breaking sales however, there’s still the nagging feeling that something isn’t quite right. Like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day, gamers feel like they’re trapped in a repeating cycle, experiencing the same trends over and over again. With a new generation comes the promise of technological innovation and a fresh start for developers as well as gamers. This seemed to hold true about the eighth generation, and yet something doesn’t quite feel right.
