The Fall release of games has officially begun and I wanted to beg the question… Is anyone actually excited? I mean it can’t be just me who receives minimal satisfaction out of AAA games anymore.
The thought came to me when I was having some lunch and I began going through all the recent games in my head, which have evidently collected dust within my draws.
Most games these days are literally piles of shit, rehashed over and over. Developers market these games in order to get people excited, but I feel the trust between company and customer just isn’t their anymore.
Flashbacks To The Glory Days
Everyone remembers the classics, they were games which made a statement and had personality about them. You’d get your friends over and play for hours and hours together. They’d become part of your friendship, jokes would be made and bragging rights established.
Developers would be part of this community too, creating games which the people wanted and had a passion in doing so. Even EA used to be loved by the fans. You rarely see that now in 2017, and it’s quite disappointing and sad.
Gaming has grown but also fallen at the same time. The passions disappeared in most cases, and its turned into a business race to implement the most appealing microtransactions to please investors.
Value is placed behind several pay walls, with companies not thinking about the customers as people but rather a currency for them to exploit.
These publishers forget where they came from and how they got their. Don’t they ever think of how Rockstar, Naughty Dog or CD Projekt RED gain such a huge appraisal and following.
People are becoming more aware and it’s going to lead to something detrimental happen to the gaming market.

This Could Be A Good Thing
If their was a large crash in AAA gaming this could be a great thing. Nothing would be more sweet to me, then to see companies like EA, Bungie and Activision (as you can tell I hate EA) crash and burn, along with all their investors who have corrupted them.
It would mean a fresh start and for Indie developers it could bring about more innovation and classics which have not been seen for quite some time.
You can see that crash happening now, especially with Destiny 2 recently with player numbers plummeting because their is simply nothing left to do. Even Assasin’s Creed and Call Of Duty are on their last legs… People are tired of these games and are moving onto bigger and better pastures.
We don’t want to be scammed by these companies anymore. They clearly do not care and have grown lazy in order to meet specific profit margins.

Only Time Will Tell
I just hope that whatever happens, it happens soon. I’m tired of getting my hopes up, only to have them lied to and crushed by these corporate wankers.
Only time will tell I guess…
Are you over AAA games? let me know in the comments below.
Take care Guy’s.
