Earlier today, I decided to brave the elements, and run some errands. One of those errands was a bit of grocery shopping. Now, I'm a foodie, so grocery shopping is one of my favorite pastimes. Except for the times when a product that I like gets discontinued. As I stood in the aisle, wondering why chunky applesauce had to die, it dawned on me that this happens to me constantly.
If I like a food product, it stops being made. If I like a game or movie franchise, it'll go off the rails. If I like a certain band...well, you get the idea.†
So when do you get to the industry saving part, you ask?
Obviously, the industry pulls alot of ugly stuff that we don't like. It's ugly stuff that's killing the AAA market, and making the console space look ridiculous. With that happening, and my cosmic curse over everything I find enjoyable, I've decided that reverse psychology on the universe will fix everything that's wrong with video games.
With that said, I welcome the death of single-player games. Everything should be exclusively multiplayer experiences. Actually, just force me to be online all the time. I'll just trust that your servers will always work flawlessly, and forever. Paying full price for half of a game, just to be sold the rest later? Sing me up for that! Your budgets? Bigger is always better. Oh, and dumb everything down for us simpletons.†
