Gamers should probably ease on the addition of excessive features. But gamers are smart enough to know what the standard feature set is for a game they are buying with their hard earned money. There will always be better. And there will always be a fresh hungry developer ready to take the place of less efficient developers. We as gamers are watching, and the Development bosses and publishers are watching too. The difficulty of a job is no excuse for doing a poor job when it's what you trained for. And when I say "poor job", I'm talking about below industry standard for the current price point.
