In the U.S., a prominent politician recently stirred controversy by referring to the country as a "nation of whiners". There are no major wars or epidemics or catastrophes, there are record levels of peace and prosperity, continued acceleration of every type of technology, comfort, convenience, and overall standard of living, and yet people still complain endlessly about the price of gas and find a million other nitpicks to moan about.
By the same token, have gamers become a similar group of whiners? Here are the top three moans of 2008:
Games are too expensive
Innovation is dead. There are too many sequels.
Journalism is horrible. Review scores are terminally flawed.
