Best and Worst Gaming Trends of 2011

2011 was a good year for gaming. Some of the better trends included day 1 sales and being able to pick up that AAA game for less then $60 as well as Onlive's continued growth. The bad trends included Project $10, services like Origin, and forcing gamers to keep a constant internet connection. (Bastion, Bulletstorm, Catherine, Child of Eden, Industry, K-Mart, OnLive, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I'd have to say DLC, it was a good concept at the start of this gen but now its just an excuse for developers to cut out content and sell it back to the consumer for a price.

DLC, casualization, making games more cinematic, lack of innovation, probably new origins/steams will pop up

the list goes on and those are the ones i can think of atm.

idk games just seem to be about being pretty and actiony and lack substance nowadays

How about Capcoms super and arcade editions and making those buy the vanilla feel ripped off. Also I hate paying for dlc on the disk or paying for missing chapters for games(AC2 and Deus Ex HR. Pre order bonuses should also be removed as well
