Will Gamers Fight Back Soon Against Devs/Publishers Following Even More Controversies?

ThisGenGaming says "With so much controversy encircling the gaming industry, with shady business practices at the forefront of the conversation, a lot of people are calling this some of the worst time to be a gamer. The times of companies who make games for the love of the art, for the most part, has passed. The industry has become extremely corporate and somewhat toxic, all because developers and publishers want to nickel and dime their consumers."

Only the people aware of this visiting sites, forums and whatever else bit of news about controversies that leak out. For the most part the majority of consumers live in blissful ignorance, and think that these kinds of practices are okay and should be embraced as long as you have a deep pocket.

In other words? I doubt it, the people fighting it is in the minority.

I disaagree with the last part of your statement simply because the average consumer does not care about the games industry or its politics..its "just games" to them. Doesnt mean they think its OK..they just dont care is all.

I have a relative that works at one of the big three. I wont say which one ( Youll never guess! lol) ...from what I understand (from said relatives perspective) games cost a lot more to make than the X360/PS3 era..especially AAA games. DLC is a way of recouping costs as even a game that sells a milion copies may not make back what is spent getting it out there. Said relative at said company believes AAA games will become less common while F2P and smaller indies become more common on consoles, than traditional games. I hope this wont be the case...But I hear things...
