Are franchises helping or destroying innovation in the video game industry?
Helping to increase the profits of the companies behind all the franchise sequels. Hurting the industry by encouraging cookie cutter sequels with little original content. This is also a problem faced by the motion picture industry.
The indie scene is where one can find innovation. A new, innovative, low budget game is a lot more fun than another rehashed wannabe movie game.
