2014 has not been a great one for the video game industry. Major games were shipped in broken states, many others were delayed until 2015, there were far too many remasters, and the most vile and sexist of those on the internet militarised themselves to abuse women in the industry.
The unavoidable result was a wave of negativity sweeping over the medium and all those in it. As always however there were diamonds in the rough and the industry will surely rally. Lessons will be learned, the industry's reputation will heal and the games will get better.
