Well, maybe I (Andrew Otton) should say too cynical. With E3 and all its racket behind us, I came to the realization that gaming cynicism is rampant and tends to be my go-to reaction whenever I see anything even remotely exciting to do with video games. Granted, this year’s E3 was not all that exciting to begin with – not too much in the way of surprises, really. Nonetheless, I still can’t help but feel disappointed in myself for how I reacted. However, the more I thought about it, the more I came to the understanding that the fault for my cynicism does not lie with me, but in how the gaming industry has decided to conduct itself. This is not all just a symptom of E3, but an ongoing problem. E3 is just the example at hand.
