Who says it’s a fact? IMO gaming (including but not limited to game play) is better than it’s ever been, we’ve been in a golden age since 07 IMO. And while I respect the differing opinions of others it seems many SRK’ers are just ungrateful, looking for any reason to hate on a game rather than admit they like anything made after 1892 in an effort to gain some ignorant sense of e-cred, either that or a lot of you guys want it to be 1995 forever.
There are literally dozens of games ranging from both “zomg I must play” to “that looks kind of cool” in my backlog from 07- till now and it’s just going to get bigger since real life stops me from playing half as much as I’d like. But to me having too many quality games is much better than 1 or 2 AAA titles a year like how it used to be.
That being said the current climate’s emphasis on graphics, mindless violence, and especially ever ballooning production costs making it all but impossible for smaller developers to stay afloat let alone effectively compete does suck.
