The Video Game industry has died once before and also had a resurgence like a Phoenix rising through the ashes. Will it do the same again?
What's ridiculous exactly?
The game industry is growing. Not dying. As long as my comments usually are, the article is not even worth my multiple paragraphs. Console, pc, mobile phones,portables like switch, VR, stand alone AR and VR, arcade VR, streaming, Web browser gaming, etc. Article is ridiculous.
Actually, to be nice since I'm guessing you might have wrote it. The article should be asking gamers on "if the game industry is going in the right direction?" It's growing. But are some of the policies and services in that growth, good for the industry and for consumers? Now I'm done.
Spot on Apocalypse Shadow more people than ever are gaming and OK alot see mobile gamers but still gamers. With the changes going on I don't see the home console/portable being taken out as the main option but I do see things like streaming and subscription services growing each year but just like we still have movie sales I don't see you owning the game ever going away as that will always have a market for some people. Look at records for example.
Have you read the article? I didn't write it actually but have you read it?
Its not dying, but its setting itself up to become too big for its own good if it keeps pushing services over games. There seems to be more focus on parting people from their money, and finding ways to keep recurring revenue, than focusing on quality games, and with more publishers pushing subscription services, it can easily cause some to fail, while others rise up if they have the marketing muscle to sustain the hard times. That could cause a sort of crash, however, the crash itself won't be like it was in the 80's, and games will still get made. Eventually though, it'll reset itself, because gaming has become too big, and too popular to just die outright, even the market that we partake in.
It's gotten stale.
Nintendo keep it fresh for me, they're exclusives are as charming as ever and Sonys are good as well. The majority of multiplat software has gotten very stale recently.
Nintendo and Sony is the way to go
Lmao lmao lmao lmao
with sony releasing awesome HW/SW, with microsoft going fully netfilx and nintendo feeding the nintenfanatics, i guess not
I understand what the author is saying but, the industry is certainly not dying in any way. It's growing and making billions of dollars a year. MT do get a bit foolish, but I have been buying and playing these games for years. Not once have I thought to myself "I lost because I didn't pay for an XYZ boost" nor did I ever care about stupid cosmetic items in games where I'm a pair of hands holding a gun. I never understood why people spend money on those things. In FIFA, I can kind of understand, although (I don't play many sports games) for having to have good player stats etc, but I still don't think I'd pay extra. As far as DLC, I do purchase it If I like the game enough.
No. Even if corporate greed makes the current model of creation and distribution implode, others will pick up where it left off. There's too much established real interest in good games. Someone will create them.
Video Game Industry - no. Video Game Journalism, on the other hand, especailly the mainstream one...
Absolutely not gaming is getting bigger and more mainstream, if anything it’s games journalism that is dying.
