Quote: "Gaming has often been faced with turbulent times throughout its illustrious history. Each generation brought about its own problems that would threaten the livelihood of gaming as we know it. In the early days of gaming, with the rise of home consoles such as the Atari 2600, we faced a threat that was so gigantic that it might have snuffed gaming altogether. We are, of course, talking about the great videogame crash that happened when the market was flooded with absolutely dreadful games and subsequently caused gaming to become a bad word within the world. However, we always managed to get out of the rough times and then create amazing experiences that would revolutionise gaming into the next generation thanks to savvy hardware developments and innovators within the medium. The gaming industry appears to be a vicious cycle where it goes through tough times, becomes wildly successful and then crashes to the ground again.
With all of that said, we are well into a new generation and the signs of the vicious cycle are starting to show, especially the tough times part. Modern gaming, as we know it today, has a whole host of problems that somehow need to be solved in order for us to progress and to reach the “wildly successful” part of the vicious cycle. With that, we decided to base this feature on the current problems that are plaguing gaming today as we know it. We decided to focus on only the big issues that require immediate attention. There are little problems that we have considered, but these are the problems that appear to be holding back gaming the most and could prove terribly detrimental if left unchecked."
