Personally i have a huge list of games i want to play for the first time. uncharted trillogy, borderlands 2, bioshock 1&2, fallout 3&new vegas, dark souls, and maybe infamous 2

damn that's a lot of games. (BTW played every single one of those titles and you will have an amazing time)

On Topic:

i don't know when publishers will learn that you can release games during summer and make money. GTA4,TLOU,MGS4 all came out during summer months yet sold quite well

its the perfect time to release a game because zero competition. Come october 2014 when we have like 20 plus games in one month, off course some games will be passed on than these same publishers will cry about not selling enough copies

right now in gaming we have a Q1 through first month of Q2 games

than we have Fall time game releases. In between there is a 4-6 months window to release games and make money

The last of us releasing late july will get added sales because there isn't much coming till destiny.

Summer is the usual period when i finish off my backlog.

How can you call the "summer gaming drought" a "lie," when you outright admit that very few new things release?

Anyway, I hate articles like this because they're way too preachy and basically say that you can perceive things however you want, provided they follow what I believe to be true. I mean, just because I can play an unknown number of games, doesn't mean I want to play said unknown number of games.

Reality is what you make of it, even when doing so pulls you far away from reality.

there is no drought, the games are picking up quickly.

S2Killinit1567d ago

not really anymore. They are coming out faster than you can play them. But I guess everybody is different.
