Do you think gaming is dieing slowly?

Is the game industry dieing or giving away for new talent?

Yes to talent in quality, BUT this is too braod. While Mainstream gaming is becoming blegh, Indie games are on the rise. Look at Chivalry, Amnesia and Star Citizen. Still going strong with other games popping up. With the corporation controlling the generic titles and masses, that leaves room for Indie Devs to rock out. I don't think gaming is dying. I think we are at a point where consumer trust is shifting in Favor of Indie dev's, look at Chivalry giving away free DLC, because they want to "Invest int their fans". Give the Industry time, hell Oculous Rift was a Kickstarter, and its gaining more attention than Kinect or Wii or PS Move ever did :D

That last part is patently false, you know that right :v All 3 of those were displayed at E3, which easily have 100k viewers at a minimum.

What? Gaming today is becoming more legitimized now than ever, both as an art form and an entertainment medium. Along with this trend, of course you're going to get popularized crap that all the kiddies make their parents buy. You simply have to look a bit harder for good games. But what's wrong with this? The growth of the gaming industry, if anything, gives gamers more choice.

What the fuck?

Gaming is evolving and spreading to other areas. Indy gaming, mobile market, etc... Consoles are still there but people are finding more work doing different kinds of gaming. Shit Casino games are still popular and money makers. People like to gamble.

And learn how to spell. WTF is DLIEING?

It's Dying. Unless you mean the gaming industry is creating stamps.

Like I said on my post on the previous page, people only concentrate on one or two AAA games and then base everything they think about the gaming industry off of that. It's not true, just because Activision's subsidiaries don't put as much effort into video game design and development as they used to does not mean that talent is dying. Take a look at a few other AAA games like Watchdogs, GTA 5, Bioshock, Borderlands and so on and you'll see that creativity is nowhere near dead in the gaming industry. Gotta give an obligatory mention to indie developers too, with games like Killing Floor, Prison Architect, Project Zomboid, Hard Reset, Jolly Rover and so on.

EA and Activision don't speak for the gaming industry nor do they represent it at all and I really wish people would stop thinking that and basing everything off of games like Call of Duty and Need for Speed and so on.


Edit: I just realised the poll gives us no choice, it's either 'yes' or 'yes' :|
