“What games are you playing?” This is a common question asked by fellow gamers across the world. Many video game “purists” may say, “Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare,” or “Assassin’s Creed,” or “Halo: Combat Evolved.” These were the original games of top franchises in the AAA industry. They were–and are– fun and will continue to be.
Because of that success however, publishers set their plans to get the most out of them. Saturation of a franchise ensues and we begin to experience yearly releases while burnout begins to set in after years and years of marginally improved $60 games.
For those of you, like me, who are burned out on the direction of these types of video games from AAA developers and are waiting for that inspired game to come out, I have a disappointing revelation for you: It won’t.
