"You may have heard about the mass lay-offs and redundancies that hit the gaming industry. On face value it may seem like a tremendous bummer that all those programmers are out of work. But when you think about it, this is actually wonderful news.
Our scrappy, mongrel, red-headed-stepchild of an industry is still subject to the laws of cause and effect. If a game developer/publisher is run badly, or makes shitty games, it will inevitably go out of business." - from gameplayer
