Simply put, there is a severe lack of new games coming out and it's really starting to feel like a drag. I know all the Covid bs severely impacted every company by a factor of like 2 years, but it's getting to the point of being beyond ridiculous. I was lucky enough to manage to somehow get a next gen console, but honestly, I am simply bored as there are so far only 2-3 legitimately good next gen games out right now, hell I'll take some really good indie games but even those are delayed as well. This has been by far the worst console launch of all time game wise and stock wise. I mean look at the new Certain Affinity game, we know almost nothing about and it's to the point where it really pisses me off because so many companies pulled an Elder Scroll 6, i.e. teased a game that was nowhere near ready just for good pr. The list of games they've announced and went radio silence is aggrevating. I get that they want to make a good game, but it's not even for the games sake, its just the suits who want to sound good and have good press. I know this is just a really long rant, but it's the blunt reality of the gaming and media industry right now. Stuff is just not coming out and wont be for a good while. A whole new factor no one saw coming was the pending frat boy culture in gaming companies that lead to all sorts of sexual harassment lawsuits and strikes. This issue is huge, because there are some VERY serious charges being made to A LOT of higher up executives (granted, they are for the shit companies like Activion and Riot Games) but still now every game studio is now in danger and suspicion. It's to the point where I wouldn't be surprised if a golden love child like Bethesda or CDPR had these same issues as the industry has gotten incredibly more scummy, more corporate, and manipulative over the years, and have burned us hard in the past. With Covid issues, internal issues, and probably personal issues for one reason or another, it's no wonder why games aren't being made. There's so much negative shit going on right now that its literally making it damn near impossible to make a good game or a game period. The only plus side to this, is that there are now a lot of new studios being made by the better and more promising devs, but we will have to wait and see if that truly pays off, as I truly hope it does and gives the power back to the creators and people who legitimately love their work. What are your thoughts on the industry right now? Do you think it will eventually get back to normal, or will a new normal take its place?
