Here's a submission from regular ThreeSpeech contributor, Anthony Hanses.
"I am but one person. There are those who have played games longer, or owned more systems. There are those who are more involved with the industry, or who spend more time playing video games. I don't claim to be any sort of expert on the inner workings of the large variety of professions that video game development and sales includes, but I contend that it no longer takes an expert to make the assertion that I have come to recently: the video game industry as a whole is losing its soul, and while it may be able to end-over-end continue to raise profits, it will on the long term lose the respectability and clout that it deserves if they continue on their current course."
