New Challenger: E3 – Electronic Entertainment Ennui

Default Prime: "So, E3 is coming up very soon and I’ve been trying to decide if it truly is a haven for those who love video games to celebrate and revel in the excitement of the future, or whether it’s the first step on the long road to inevitable disappointment that is adding to the overwhelming sense or boredom enveloping a lot of gamers today. I work with a lot of people who play games and who openly admit that increasingly when they buy games they’re ready to trade them in or just put them back in the case and forget them (much like my GT5 experience) after a week or so. Why is that? Games are so expensive now that each purchase ought to bring a meaty slab of playability, excitement and interest to the table. So where do things go wrong? Why is the number of people feeling like this increasing so rapidly? Obviously, in the space of this column I can barely scratch the surface, but I’ll make like the plucky Brit I am and give it a go." (Culture, E3, Industry)
